    Circular Manufacturing Systems: A development framework with analysis methods and tools for implementation2017Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The society today lives on the philosophy of ‘take-make-use-dispose.’ In the long run, this is not sustainable as the natural resources and the waste carrying capacity of the earth are limited. Therefore, it is essential to reduce dependency on the natural resources by decoupling the growth from the consumption. In this venture, both the society and the manufacturing industry have a vital role to play. The society needs to shift towards Circular Economy that rests upon the philosophy of ‘take-make-use-reuse’ and the manufacturing industry has to be a major stakeholder in this shift. Despite being proven to be both economically and environmentally beneficial, successful examples of circular systems are few today. This is primarily due to two reasons; firstly, there is a lack of systemic and systematic approach to guide industries and secondly, there is a lack of analysis methods and tools that are capable of assessing different aspects of circular manufacturing systems. Taking on to these challenges, the objective of this research is to bring forward a framework with methods and decision support tools that are essential to implement circular manufacturing systems. The initial conceptual framework with the systemic approach is developed based on extensive review and analysis of research, which is further adapted for industrial implementation. Systematic analysis methods, decision support and implementation tools are developed to facilitate this adaptation. This development has been supported by four cases from diverse manufacturing sectors. Behind each decision support tool, there are analysis methods built upon mainly system dynamics principles. These tools are based on simulation platforms called Stella and Anylogic. Among other things, these tools are capable of assessing the performance of closed-loop supply chains, consequences of resource scarcity, potential gains from resource conservation and overall economic and environmental performance of circular manufacturing systems.

    Performance analysis of the closed loop supply chain2012Ingår i: Journal of Remanufacturing, ISSN 2210-4690, Vol. 2, nr 4Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The question of resource scarcity and emerging pressure of environmental legislations has brought a new challenge for the manufacturing industry. On the one hand, there is a huge population that demands a large quantity of commodities; on the other hand, these demands have to be met by minimum resources and pollution. Resource conservative manufacturing (ResCoM) is a proposed holistic concept to manage these challenges. The successful implementation of this concept requires cross functional collaboration among relevant fields, and among them, closed loop supply chain is an essential domain. The paper aims to highlight some misconceptions concerning the closed loop supply chain, to discuss different challenges, and in addition, to show how the proposed concept deals with those challenges through analysis of key performance indicators (KPI).

    Methods

    The work presented in this paper is mainly based on the literature review. The analysis of performance of the closed loop supply chain is done using system dynamics, and the Stella software has been used to do the simulation. Findings The results of the simulation depict that in ResCoM; the performance of the closed loop supply chain is much enhanced in terms of supply, demand, and other uncertainties involved. The results may particularly be interesting for industries involved in remanufacturing, researchers in the field of closed loop supply chain, and other relevant areas. Originality The paper presented a novel research concept called ResCoM which is supported by system dynamics models of the closed loop supply chain to demonstrate the behavior of KPI in the closed loop supply chain.

    Design and Construction of a Small Ammonia Heat Pump2010Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In view of the fact that most of the synthetic refrigerants, in case of leakage or release, are harmful to the environment by contributing in global warming or depleting stratospheric ozone layer, many research works have been done recently to find alternative refrigerants posing no or negligible threat to the environment. Among alternative refrigerants, ammonia, a natural refrigerant with zero Global Warming Potential (GWP) and Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), can be a sensible choice.Although ammonia has been used for many years in large industrial systems, its application in small units is rare. In this project a small heat pump with about 7 kW heating capacity at -5 °C and +40 °C evaporation and condensation temperatures is designed and built to work with ammonia as refrigerant. The heat pump is expected to produce enough heat to keep a single-family house warm in Sweden and to provide tap hot water for the house. After successful completion of this project, it is planned to install the heat pump in a house to test it throughout a heating season to study its performance in real working conditions.Since ammonia is flammable and toxic in high concentrations, the refrigerant charge is tried to be kept low in the heat pump to reduce the risk of fire or poisoning in case of unwanted release of refrigerant to the surroundings. The compact design of the heat pump helps reducing the refrigerant charge. Besides, considering the limited space normally reserved for installation of a heat pump in a house, the compact design of the heat pump is necessary.

    Magnetic Refrigeration for Near Room-Temperature Applications2018Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kylning spelar en avgörande roll i många olika sektorer och förbrukar cirka 17 % av den elektricitet som produceras globalt. Kylprocessernas energiförbrukning utgör alltså en stor andel av primärenergiförbrukningen och innebär även annan miljöpåverkan. Förutom miljöpåverkan som är förknippad med energiförbrukningen bidrar ångkompressionssystemen till global uppvärmning på grund av utsläpp av köldmedier i atmosfären. Som en alternativ teknik för nära rumstemperaturapplikationer föreslås magnetisk kylning av vissa forskare, för att eliminera utsläpp av köldmedier i atmosfären och för att minska energiförbrukningen. Denna avhandling är en sammanställning av ett antal studier om magnetisk kylning för rumstemperaturapplikationer.

    I den första studien undersöktes de miljöpåverkningar som är förknippade med magnetisk kylning noggrant genom en livscykelanalys. Livscykelanalysen indikerar att minskningen av miljöpåverkan inte garanteras genom att byta till den magnetiska kylprocessen på grund av de miljöbelastningar som är relaterade till de sällsynta jordartsmetaller som används i magnetisk kylning. För att undvika de extra miljöpåverkningarna bör de magnetiska kylsystemen använda så lite magnetiska material som möjligt, vilket kräver en optimerad design. Dessutom är energieffektivare drift jämfört med ångkompressionssystemen nödvändigt för att få miljöfördelar, åtminstone i vissa miljöpåverkanskategorier.

    En praktisk metod för att optimera designen av magnetiska kylsystem, för att uppnå t.ex. en kompakt design eller hög effektivitet, är användning av en flexibel mjukvarumodell, som simulerar effekten av olika parametrar på systemets prestanda. En sådan mjukvarumodell av det magnetiska kylsystemet har utvecklats och validerats i detta projekt. Ett syfte med utvecklingen av modellen är att öka precisionen av de simulerade resultaten genom att ta hänsyn till mer detaljer än i tidigare modeller. Detta mål uppnås genom ett innovativt sätt att modellera den parasitära värmeöverföringen och inkludera effekten av närvaron av magnetokaloriska material på styrkan av fältet som skapas av magnetaggregatet. Dessutom görs vissa modifieringar eller korrigeringar i de befintliga korrelationerna för att inkludera effekten av bindemedel som används i vissa aktiva magnetiska regeneratorer. Validering av den utvecklade mjukvarumodellen görs med hjälp av experimentella resultat som erhållits från den prototyp som finns vid Institutionen för Energiteknik, Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan.

    En av parametrarna som kan modifieras i den utvecklade mjukvarumodellen är valet av magnetokaloriska material för varje skikt i en skiktad aktiv magnetisk regenerator. Användning av mjukvarumodellen för att optimera valet av material för skikten visar att material med kritiska temperaturer som är lika med den cykliska genomsnittstemperaturen hos de skikt där de används inte nödvändigtvis resulterar i önskad optimal prestanda. Dessutom behövs olika materialval för skikten för att maximera modellernas resultat avseende energieffektivitet eller temperaturskillnaden som erhålls mellan de två ändarna av regeneratorerna. Därför är valet av kritiska temperaturer för skiktens material en ytterligare parameter som ska optimeras i studier med avsikt att förbättra ett systems prestanda.

    Prototypen vid Institutionen för Energiteknik, Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan, var ursprungligen designad för att ersätta ångkompressionssystemet för ett restaurangkylskåp. Det kunde emellertid inte uppfylla de krav för vilka det ursprungligen utformats. Den ovan nämnda utvecklade simuleringsmodellen används för att undersöka hur mycket prestandan kan förbättras genom att förändra valet av material, partikelstorleken, antalet skikt, driftsfrekvensen och flödeshastigheten av värmeöverföringsvätskan. Med andra ord undersöks utrymmet för förbättring av prestandan utan att genomföra stora förändringar i systemet, såsom förändringar i regeneratorers geometri och i magnetaggregatet. Under processen undersöks effekten av bindemedel på prestanda och begränsningar som är förknippade med bindemedlets egenskaper. Trots detta kunde studien inte visa att de ursprungliga målen för prototypen kan uppnås utan att ändra regeneratorernas geometri och de befintliga magnetokaloriska materialen.

    I nästa studie övervägs mer flexibla val av regeneratorernas geometrier och magnetokaloriska material. I den här studien undersöks hur mycket de magnetokaloriska materialen måste förbättras för att magnetiska kylsystem ska kunna konkurrera med ångkompressionssystem vad gäller prestanda. För de två undersökta fallen är de magnetfältberoende egenskaperna hos befintliga materialen tillräckliga förutsatt att vissa andra problem, såsom låg mekanisk stabilitet och inhomogenitet hos egenskaperna, löses. Emellertid, för mer krävande designkriterier, såsom att ge stor kylkapacitet över en betydande temperaturdifferens samtidigt som de magnetiska materialen används sparsamt, behöver de magnetfältberoende egenskaperna också förbättras.

    Ett mindre undersökt område för magnetisk kylning i rumstemperatur är föremål för en annan studie som ingår i avhandlingen. I denna studie modelleras fasta magnetiska kylsystem med Peltier-element som värmebrytare. Eftersom Peltier-elementen förbrukar elektricitet och pumpar värmen kan de modellerade systemen betraktas som hybrid magnetokalorisk-Peltier-kylsystem. För sådana system modelleras i detalj det transienta beteendet hos Peltier-elementen tillsammans med de magnetokaloriska materialskikten. Den matematiska modellen är lämplig för implementering i programmeringsspråk utan behov av kommersiella modelleringsplattformar. Parametrarna som påverkar det modellerade systemets prestanda är många, och optimering av dem kräver en separat studie. De preliminära optimeringsinsatserna ger emellertid inte lovande resultat. Följaktligen kan fokusering på passiva värmebrytare vara mer fördelaktiga.

    Injury tolerances for oblique impact helmet testing2004Ingår i: International Journal of Crashworthiness, ISSN 1358-8265, E-ISSN 1754-2111, Vol. 9, nr 1, s. 15-23Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The most frequently sustained severe injuries in motorcycle crashes are injuries to the head, and many of these are caused by rotational force. Rotational force is most commonly the result of oblique impacts to the head. Good testing methods for evaluating the effects of such impacts are currently lacking. There is also a need for improving our understanding of the effects of oblique impacts on the human head. Helmet standards currently in use today do not measure rotational effects in test dummy heads. However rotational force to the head results in large shear strains arising in the brain, which has been proposed as a cause of traumatic brain injuries like diffuse axonal injuries (DAI). This paper investigates a number of well-defined impacts, simulated using a detailed finite element (FE) model of the human head, an FE model of the Hybrid III dummy head and an FE model of a helmet. The same simulations were performed on both the FE human head model and the FE Hybrid III head model, both fitted with helmets. Simulations on both these heads were performed to describe the relationship between load levels in the FE Hybrid III head model and strains in the brain tissue in the FE human head model. In this study, the change in rotational velocity and the head injury criterion (HIC) value were chosen as appropriate measurements. It was concluded that both rotational and translational effects are important when predicting the strain levels in the human brain.

    Optimization of Maputo Power Plant2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The Electricidade de Moçambique, E.P. (EDM) is the power utility in Mozambique, responsible to generate, transport and distribute electricity all over the country. The company has three gas turbines installed at Maputo Power Plant. All units burn diesel oil and are used only for back up. Currently only the unit #2 is available for operation.

    The main constraint that EDM faces is the high operation costs due to diesel price. Hence the company is considering converting units #2 and #3 to burn natural gas, resource available locally. The country is currently exporting natural gas to the neighbouring Republic of South Africa.

    This MSc thesis project calculates the power output of all gas turbines when burning natural gas and optimizes the power plant capacity by proposing modifications of the current power turbine cycles to allow sustainable operation

    Abstract [en]

    The entire world's challenge is to find out the renewable energy sources due to rapid depletion of fossil fuels because of their high consumption. Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) are believed to be the best alternative source which converts chemical energy into electricity without combustion. Nanostructured study is required to develop highly ionic conductive electrolyte for SOFCs. In this work, the calcium doped ceria (Ce0.8Ca0.2O 1.9) coated with 20% molar ratio of two alkali carbonates (CDC-M: MCO3, where M= Na and K) electrolyte was prepared by co-precipitation method in this study. Ni based electrode was used to fabricate the cell by dry pressing technique. The crystal structure and surface morphology was characterized by X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HRTEM). The particle size was calculated in the range of 10-20nm by Scherrer's formula and compared with SEM and TEM results. The ionic conductivity was measured by using AC Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) method. The activation energy was also evaluated. The performance of the cell was measured 0.567W/cm2 at temperature 550°C with hydrogen as a fuel.

    Synthesize and characterization of nanocomposite anodes for low temperature solid oxide fuel cell2015Ingår i: International journal of hydrogen energy, ISSN 0360-3199, E-ISSN 1879-3487, Vol. 40, nr 1, s. 891-897Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Solid oxide fuel cells have much capability to become an economical alternative energy conversion technology having appropriate materials that can be operated at comparatively low temperature in the range of 400-600 degrees C. The nano-scale engineering has been incorporated to improve the catalytic activity of anode materials for solid oxide fuel cells. Nanostructured Al0.10NixZn0.90-xO oxides were prepared by solid state reaction, which were then mixed with the prepared Gadolinium doped Ceria GDC electrolyte. The crystal structure and surface morphology were characterized by XRD and SEM. The particle size was evaluated by XRD data and found in the range of 20-50 nm, which was then ensured by SEM pictures. The pellets of 13 mm diameter were pressed by dry press technique and electrical conductivities (DC and AC) were determined by four probe techniques and the values have been found to be 10.84 and 4.88 S/cm, respectively at hydrogen atmosphere in the temperature range of 300-600 degrees C. The Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) analysis exhibits the pure electronic behavior at hydrogen atmosphere. The maximum power density of ANZ-GDC composite anode based solid oxide fuel cell has been achieved 705 mW/cm(2) at 550 degrees C.

    Waste heat recovery from SSAB’s Steel plant in Oxelösund using a Heat Pump2016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta projekt är inriktat på spillvärmepotentialer inom järn och stålindustrin. Högtemperaturvärme-pumpar för medelvarma temperaturkällor har modellerats. SSABs stålverk i Oxelusund har använts som exempel. Järn- och stålindustrin i Sverige är storkonsument av energi, tillsammans med pappers och massaindustrin. Det finns också en stor potential för spillvärmeåtervinning i stålindustrin. Det görs redan i Luleå t ex [1].

    Järn och stålindustrins produktionsmetoder och spillvärmeåtervinning, speciellt i USA och Sverige har studerats genom en litteraturstudie. Dagens metoder och potentialer för spillvärmeåtervinning inom järn och stålindustrin i Sverige studerades speciellt. SSABs anläggning i Oxelösund, har i decennier planerat inte bara att värma Oxelösunds stad som idag, utan också expandera till näraliggande Nyköping bara 12 km bort [2].

    Typiskt är den maximala framledningstemperaturen till Nyköpings fjärrvärmenät 110 °C den kallaste dagen. En spillvärme-värmepump når normalt inte upp till så höga temperaturer. Dock räcker 80 °C maximal framledningstemperatur från värmepumpen för att nyttiggöra spillvärmekällan kontinuerligt. Även en lägre temperatur som 75 °C skulle sannolikt räcka. Bara några få fjärrvärme-värmeväxlare i några hus skulle behöva bytas för att denna lägre temperatur skulle räcka till. De överskjutande graderna mellan 80 °C (75 °C) och 110 °C kan tas med värme från t ex existerande biobränslepannor lokalt i Nyköping.

    Att använda värmepumpar i detta sammanhang är inte självskrivet. Generellt är värmeflödena från ett stålverk så högtempererade att ingen värmpump behövs. Om man försöker komma åt dessa högtemperaturflöden i en gammal anläggning kan det bli väldigt dyrt och störa produktionen. Därför

    koncentrerades studien på medeltemperaturkällor (30 °C till 40 °C) och användande av högtemperaturvärmepumpar. Sådan värme dumpas nu med kyltorn. På så sätt kan 50 % av Nyköpings värmebehov tillgodoses med lätt tillgänglig spillvärme. Om man antar en värmefaktor på cirka 5, och lägger till värmepumpens förbrukade elektricitet blir det 62 % av Nyköpings fjärrvärmebehov.

    Oxelösundanläggningen är bara ett exempel och studien fokuseras på högtemperaturs-industriella värmepumpar HITIHP för sådana här och liknande användningar. Lämpliga komponenter och köldmedia har undersökts och generella konstruktionsprinciper av HITIHP föreslås. En litteraturstudie för att finna de bästa HITIHP-köldmedierna har gjorts.

    En tvåstegs högtemperaturvärmepump, som använder den tillgängliga värmekällans kapacitet och temperaturer tillsammans med fjärrvärmenätets krav, har modellerats och simulerats. Simuleringen har huvudsakligen gjorts med programmet EES. R245fa har t ex visat sig vara lämpligt som köldmedium i det andra steget av en högtemperaturvärmepump. Med R245fa kan till och med högre temperaturer än 90 °C uppnås till fjärrvärmesystemet. Tidigare skulle R134a ha använts i en sådan här applikation, men R245fa har t e lägre GWP (Global Warming Potential omkring 1000 istället för omkring 1300)[3]. Många olika köldmedia har simulerats i lågtemperatursteget av värmepumpen som initialt antogs vara en skruvkompressor-kaskad-värmepump. En större värmpump med två turbokompressorsteg och flashtank har också simulerats. Den gav också tillfredställande resultat. I det senare fallet studerades både R1234ZE(z) och R245fa som gav goda resultat men R1234ZE(z) ger mycket lägre GWP.

    Alla värmefaktorer (COP, energibehov, kondensortryck och tryckförhållanden (hög-/lågtryck) jämfördes. R245fa-R245fa och R600a-R245fa studerades noga i tvåstegs-kaskad-systemet med skruvkompressor. Dessa kombinationer gav bäst resultat. R717-R245fa var också bra men hade andra begränsningar. I tvåstegssystem med turbokompressorer och flashtank visade sig visade sig R1234ZE(z) ge gen bästa värmefaktorn. Man hade naturligtvis inte heller något temperaturfall i någon värmeväxlare mellan de två stegen. Om SSABs spillvärme av någon anledning inte skulle vara tillgängligt kan en sådan värmpump istället använda havsvatten som värmekälla.

    Begränsningen av koldioxidutsläppen är mycket svåra att beräkna. Detta kommer att bero mer på politisk övertygelse än på lättbevisade fakta. En mycket grov beräkning av kostnaden har också gjorts. Uppskattningsvis kommer projektet att kosta mellan 420 och 450 MSEK. Kostnadsuppskattningen inkluderar värmepumpen och en 12 km lång förbindelse till Nyköping. Kostnaden för värme levererad till Nyköping, kommer att variera mellan 0,2 kr/kWh och 0,65 kr/kWh när elpriset varieras mellan 0,5 och 2 SEK/kWh. Den högre värmkostnaden 0,65 kr/kWh beror också på att östersjövatten – inte spillvärme används som värmekälla.

    Värme från ett kyltorn kan återvinnas med en högtemperaturvärmepump. Den kan levereras från Oxelösund till Nyköping. De ekonomiska detaljerna har bar studerats översiktligt. Faktorer som om renovering den gamla pannan i Nyköping eller SSABs kyltorn kunde senareläggas, skulle kunna förbättra intresset för projektet. Ett spillvärmerör mellan Oxelösund och Nyköping har studerats sedan mitten av 70-talet av t ex Lars-Åke Cronholm [4]. Kan det vara dags nu?

    Finite-length effects on dynamical behavior of rod-like particles in wall-bounded turbulent flow2015Ingår i: International Journal of Multiphase Flow, ISSN 0301-9322, E-ISSN 1879-3533, Vol. 76, s. 13-21Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Combined Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV) measurements have been performed in dilute suspensions of rod-like particles in wall turbulence. PIV results for the turbulence field in the water table flow apparatus compared favorably with data from Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) of channel flow turbulence and the universality of near-wall turbulence justified comparisons with DNS of fiber-laden channel flow. In order to examine any shape effects on the dynamical behavior of elongated particles in wall-bounded turbulent flow, fibers with three different lengths but the same diameter were used. In the logarithmic part of the wall-layer, the translational fiber velocity was practically unaffected by the fiber length l. In the buffer layer, however, the fiber dynamics turned out to be severely constrained by the distance z to the wall. The short fibers accumulated preferentially in low-speed areas and adhered to the local fluid speed. The longer fibers (l/z > 1) exhibited a bi-modal probability distribution for the fiber velocity, which reflected an almost equal likelihood for a long fiber to reside in an ejection or in a sweep. It was also observed that in the buffer region, high-speed long fibers were almost randomly oriented whereas for all size cases the slowly moving fibers preferentially oriented in the streamwise direction. These phenomena have not been observed in DNS studies of fiber suspension flows and suggested l/z to be an essential parameter in a new generation of wall-collision models to be used in numerical studies.

    Towards elimination of airborne particles from rail traffic2013Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the investigation of wear particles from rail transport started in the late 1910s, the high mass concentrations of these particles have prompted concern among researchers interested in air quality. However, effective action has yet to be taken because relevant knowledge is still missing. This thesis provides knowledge of airborne wear particles originating from rail transport. Some aspects of their characteristic parameters, such as size, mass concentration, number concentration, and morphology, were investigated in the field and in laboratory tests. We also discuss means to mitigate non-exhaust emissions, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of various test set-ups in the seven appended journal papers:Paper A reviews recent studies of exhaust and non-exhaust emissions from rail vehicles. The results, measurements, adverse health effects, and proposed or applied solutions presented in this literature are summarized in this paper.Paper B summarizes the results of field tests we conducted. The effects of curve negotiation and braking under different real conditions were investigated in a field test in which on-board measurements were made. The elemental composition and morphology of the particles emitted and their potential sources were also investigated.Paper C describes how a pin-on-disc machine can be used to reproduce real operating conditions during mechanical train braking in a controlled laboratory setting. The results were validated by comparing the field test results with the results of laboratory studies.Paper D presents comprehensive results of laboratory studies of airborne particles from different braking materials. A new index is introduced in this paper, which can be used as a quantitative metric for assessing airborne wear particle emission rates.Paper E describes the effects of using various friction modifiers and lubricants on the characteristics of airborne particles from wheel–rail contact under lubricated and unlubricated conditions.Paper F reports work to simulate thermoelastic instability in the cast-iron braking material. We simulated the fluctuation of the flash temperature by considering the temperature dependency of the material properties and the transformation of the contact state due to thermomechanical phenomena and wear.Paper G reviews new full- and sub-scale measurements of non-exhaust emissions from ground transport. The advantages and disadvantages of on-board measurements, pin-on-disc tests, dynamometer tests, and test rig studies are discussed in this paper.

    A pin-on-disc study of the rate of airborne wear particle emissions from railway braking materials2012Ingår i: Wear, ISSN 0043-1648, E-ISSN 1873-2577, Vol. 284, s. 18-29Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The current study investigates the characteristics of particles generated from the wear of braking materials, and provides an applicable index for measuring and comparing wear particle emissions. A pin-on-disc tribometer equipped with particle measurement instruments was used. The number concentration, size, morphology, and mass concentration of generated particles were investigated and reported for particles 10 nm-32 mu m in diameter. The particles were also collected on filters and investigated using EDS and SEM. The effects of wear mechanisms on particle morphology and changes in particle concentration are discussed. A new index, the airborne wear particle emission rate (AWPER), is suggested that could be used in legislation to control non-exhaust emissions from transport modes, particularly rail transport.

    Particle emissions from rail traffic: a literature review2013Ingår i: Critical reviews in environmental science and technology, ISSN 1064-3389, E-ISSN 1547-6537, Vol. 43, nr 23, s. 2211-2244Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Particle emissions are a drawback of rail transport. This work is a comprehensive presentation of recent research into particle emissions from rail vehicles. Both exhaust and non-exhaust particle emissions are considered when examining particle characteristics such as  PM10, and PM2.5 concentration levels, size, morphology, composition, as well as adverse health effects, current legislation, and available and proposed solutions for reducing such emissions. High concentration levels in enclosed rail traffic environments are reported and some toxic effects of the particles. We find that only a few limited studies have examined the adverse health effects of non-exhaust particle emissions and that no relevant legislation exists. Thus further research in this area is warranted.

    A field test study of airborne wear particles from a running regional train2012Ingår i: IMechE, Part F: Journal of Rail and Rapid Transit, ISSN 0954-4097, Vol. 226, nr 1, s. 95-109Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Inhalable airborne particles have inverse health affect. In railways, mechanical brakes, the wheel–rail contact, current collectors, ballast, sleepers, and masonry structures yield particulate matter. Field tests examined a Swedish track using a train instrumented with particle measurement devices, brake pad temperature sensors, and speed and brake sensors. The main objective of this field test was to study the characteristics of particles generated from disc brakes on a running train with an on-board measuring set-up.

    Two airborne particle sampling points were designated, one near a pad–rotor disc brake contact and a second under the frame, not near a mechanical brake or the wheel–rail contact; the numbers and size distributions of the particles detected were registered and evaluated under various conditions (e.g. activating/deactivating electrical brakes or negotiating curves). During braking, three speed/temperature-dependent particle peaks were identified in the fine region, representing particles 280 nm, 350 nm, and 600 nm in diameter. In the coarse region, a peak was discerned for particles 3–6 μm in diameter. Effects of brake pad temperature on particle size distribution were also investigated. Results indicate that the 280 nm peak increased with increasing temperature, and that electrical braking significantly reduced airborne particle numbers. FESEM images captured particles sizing down to 50 nm. The ICP-MS results indicated that Fe, Cu, Zn, Al, Ca, and Mg were the main elements constituting the particles.

    A study of friction modifiers on airborne wear particles from wheel-rail contact2012Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Wheel-rail contact and its wear process are crucial issues in maintenance and operating of rolling stocks. During wheel-rail contact, materials in mating faces are worn off and some of them transferred to airborne particles. Eventhough the wear process in wheel-rail contact are well-known, few studies have been conducted on the airborne particles from wheel-rail contact.

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of using different friction modifier on the amount of airbotne particles from wheel-rail contact in a laboratory simulation. In this regard, a series laboratory tests were used by using round head pin (R=25mm) and dead weight 40 N in a pin-on-disc machine. This set-up simulates a contact pressure around 750 MPa on the pin head.

    The amount of airborne particles and their characteristics were investigated in dry-contact, and non-dry contacts whereas a lubricant, Binol rail 510 and a friction modifier, tramsilence were used. According to the results, the effects of using Binol rail to reduce the amount of airborne particles were considerable.

    Experiences of measuring airborne wear particles from braking materials and the wheel - Rail contact2012Ingår i: 9th International Conference on Contact Mechanics and Wear of Rail/Wheel Systems, CM 2012, Southwest Jiaotong University , 2012, s. 608-609Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    During braking both of the discs and pads of disc brakes are worn. Since disc brakes are not sealed, some of the generated wear particles can become airborne. The same condition also holds for block brakes utilized in rail vehicles. Furthermore, the wheel-rail contact is also subjected to wear processes during braking as well as during normal running. This contact also contributes to generation of airborne particles. Several studies have found an association between adverse health effects and the concentration of particles in the atmosphere, so it is of interest to improve our knowledge of the airborne wear particles. The present work includes results from full scale testing of rail vehicles. Particle size distribution, morphology and elemental contents are presented and discussed. Due to high back ground concentration levels in field tests, dedicated laboratory test set ups on a reduced scale were designed and utilized for airborne particle studies with zero background level. Promising correlation between field test and the lab set up is identified. Different ways of using this test set up for evaluating how the composition of the airborne particles is classified with respect to their health effects are discussed. Furthermore, different ways of using the proposed method to rank and to quantify airborne particle emission factors are presented.

    A field investigation of the size, morphology and chemical composition of airborne particles in rail transport2010Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The health effects of inhalable airborne particles are well documented. In the European Union the European Council mandates that the level of airborne particles with a diameter smaller than 10 µm (PM10) must not exceed an annual average of 40 µg/m3. Examples of possible sources from rail transport are mechanical brakes, wheel rail contact, current collectors, ballast, sleepers and masonry structures. In this regard, a series of field tests have been conducted on a regular Swedish track using a regional train instrumented with: particle measurement devices, temperature sensors in brake pads and sensors to measure the magnitude of train speed and a GPS.

    Two sampling points for airborne particles were designated in the train under frame. One of the sampling points was near a pad to rotor disc brake contact and a second global sampling point was chosen under the frame, but not near a mechanical brake or the wheel-rail contact. The first one was highly influenced by brake pad wear debris and the other one was influenced by all of the brake pads, wheel and rail wear debris as well as re-suspension. In each sampling points, three tubes were linked to three particle measurement devices. Two sets of Ptrak, Dustrak and Grimm devices were used. The Ptrak 8525 was an optical particle measurement device which could measure particle diameter in the size interval of 20 nm up to 1 micrometer. The Dustrak was used to measure particle mass concentration. The Grimm 1.109 was an aerosol spectrometer which counted number of particles from 0.25 micrometer to 32 micrometer in 31 intervals. These two Grimm devices were equipped with Millipore filters in the devices outlets to capture particles for further studies on morphology and matter of particles.

    The total number and size distribution of the particles for these two sampling points were registered and evaluated in different situations such as activating and deactivating electrical brake or train curve negotiating.

    During braking, three peaks of 250 nm, 350 nm and 600 nm in diameter, with the 350 nm peak dominating were identified in the fine particle region. In the coarse particle region, a peak of around 3-6 µm in diameter was discovered. The brake pad temperature effects on particle size distribution were also investigated and the results showed that the peak around 250 nm increased. Furthermore, the activation of electrical braking significantly reduced the number of airborne particles.

    A SEM was used to capture the images from collected particles on filters. Furthermore, an ICP-Ms method was used to investigate the elemental contents of the particulates on the filter.  In this case the main contribution belonged to Fe, Si, Al, Ca, Cu, Zn. The higher amount of some elements weights such as calcium, silicon, sodium and aluminum in the global sampling point filters revealed that ballast and concrete sleepers were the main sources for these particles although some of them originated from rail, wheel, brake disc and brake pad as well.

    Pin-on-disc study of the effects of railway friction modifiers on airborne wear particles from wheel-rail contact2013Ingår i: Tribology International, ISSN 0301-679X, E-ISSN 1879-2464, Vol. 60, s. 136-139Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge of wheel–rail interaction is crucial to wheel and rail maintenance. In this interaction, some of theworn-off material is transformed into airborne particles. Although such wear is well understood, few studiestreat the particles generated. We investigated friction modifiers' effects on airborne particles characteristicsgenerated in wheel-rail contacts in laboratory conditions. Pin-on-disc machine testing with a round-head pinloaded by a dead weight load 40 N simulated maximum contact pressure over 550 MPa. Airborne particlecharacteristics were investigated in dry contacts and in ones lubricated with biodegradable rail grease andwater- and oil-based friction modifiers. The number of particles declined with the grease; the number ofultrafine particles increased with the water-based friction modifier, mainly due to water vaporization.

    Particle emission from rail vehicles: A literature review2012Ingår i: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part F: Journal of Rail and Rapid Transit, Sage Publications, 2012Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Emission of airborne particles is a side effect from rail transport. This work reviews recent research on particle emissions from rail vehicles. Both exhaust and non-exhaust particle emissions are characterized by size, morphology, composition, and size distribution. Current legislation, knowledge of adverse health effects, and available and proposed solutions for emission reductions are also treated. There has been much focus on exhaust emissions, but only a few limited studies have investigated non-exhaust particle emissions, which contain a significant amount of metallic materials. A new method for measuring the airborne wear particle emission rate (AWPER) is proposed as a first step to guide new legislations and to focus further research on non-exhaust airborne emission, i.e., research on the generation mechanisms for particle emissions and their adverse health effects.

    Technical note: Experiences of studying airborne wear particles from road and rail transport2013Ingår i: Aerosol and Air Quality Research, ISSN 1680-8584, Vol. 13, nr 4, s. 1161-1169Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Airborne particles and their adverse effects on air quality have been recognized by humans since ancient times. Current exhaust emission legislations increase the relative contribution of wear particles on the PM levels. Consequently, wearbased particle emissions from rail and road transport have raised concerns as ground transportation is developing quickly. Although scientific research on airborne wear-based particles started in 1909, there is almost no legislation that control the generation of wear-based particles. In addition, there is no accepted and approved standard measurement technique for monitoring and recording particle characteristics. The main objective of this study is to review recent experimental work in this field and to discuss their set-ups, the sampling methods, the results, and their limitations, and to propose measures for reducing these limitations.

    Temperature and Thermoelastic Instability at Tread Braking Using Cast Iron Friction Material2013Ingår i: Wear, ISSN 0043-1648, E-ISSN 1873-2577, Vol. 314, nr 1–2, s. 171-180Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Braking events in railway traffic often induce high frictional heating and thermoelastic instability (TEI) at the interfacing surfaces. In the present paper, two approaches are adopted to analyse the thermomechanical interaction in a pin-on-disc experimental study of railway braking materials. In a first part, the thermal problem is studied to find the heat partitioning between pin and disc motivated by the fact that wear mechanisms can be explained with a better understanding of the prevailing thermal conditions. The numerical model is calibrated using the experimental results. In a second part, the frictionally induced thermoelastic instabilities at the pin-disc contact are studied using a numerical method and comparing them with the phenomena observed in the experiments. The effects of temperature on material properties and on material wear are considered. It is found from the thermal analysis that the pin temperature and the heat flux to the pin increase with increasing disc temperatures up to a transition stage. This agrees with the behaviour found in the experiments. Furthermore, the thermoelastic analysis displays calculated pressure and the temperature distributions at the contact interface that are in agreement with the hot spot behaviour observed in the experiments.

    A study of airborne wear particles generated from organic railway brake pads and brake discs2011Ingår i: Wear, ISSN 0043-1648, E-ISSN 1873-2577, Vol. 273, nr 1, s. 93-99Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Brake pads on wheel-mounted disc brakes are often used in rail transport due to their good thermal properties and robustness. During braking, both the disc and the pads are worn. This wear process generates particles that may become airborne and thus affect human health. The long term purpose of ‘Airborne particles in Rail transport’ project is to gain knowledge on the wear mechanisms in order to find means of controlling the number and size distribution of airborne particles. In this regard, a series of full-scale field tests and laboratory tests with a pin-on-disc machine have been conducted. The morphology and the matter of particles, along with their size distribution and concentration, have been studied. The validity of results from the pin-on-disc simulation has been verified by the field test results. Results show an ultra-fine peak for particles with a diameter size around 100 nm in diameter, a dominant fine peak for particles with a size of around 350 nm in diameter, and a coarse peak with a size of 3-7 μm in diameter. Materials such as iron, copper, aluminium, chromium, cobalt, antimony, and zinc have been detected in the nano-sized particles.

    Smarta Elnät – Modell och Marknad2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tekniken kring smarta elnät har under det senaste decenniet blivit etablerad som ett sätt att skapa en större flexibilitet på elnätet, vilket kommer att behövas allt eftersom utvecklingen går mot mer förnybara primärenergikällor i elproduktionen. En del av tekniken är förmågan att flytta laster i tid, för att anpassa sig till antingen pris eller utsläpp, vilket kallas efterfrågeflexibilitet. Detta projekt, som genomförts vid KTH i samarbete med konsultföretaget Capgemini, undersöker de ekonomiska, miljömässiga och sociala aspekterna av efterfrågeflexibilitet.

     

    I projektet används tre hushållsprodukter i en modell som beräknar potentiella kostnadsbesparingar och möjliga reduktioner av CO2e-utsläpp. Resultaten visar att de faktiska besparingarna mätta i kronor är små, men att den procentuella besparingen kan vara så hög som 20 procent. Reduktionen av CO2e-utsläppen är något lägre. Dessutom visar studien att besparingarna ökar då modellen ges en större flexibilitet samt då fluktuationerna i elpriset ökar. Ett scenario som innefattar mer intermittent elproduktion och slutanvändare som är beredda att anamma tekniken är därför avgörande för efterfrågeflexibilitetens framgång. Resultaten visar också att en optimering inte kan göras på ett sätt som både minimerar kostnader och CO2e-utsläpp samtidigt.

     

    En diskussion om de strategiska möjligheterna för Capgemini visar att fokus bör ligga på att samla in, tolka och sammanställa de stora mängder data tekniken kommer att medföra. Det finns också möjligheter i kringtjänster tätt sammankopplade med smarta elnät, såsom utveckling av en laddningsinfrastruktur för elbilar.

    Updated relations for the uniaxial compressive strength of marlstones based on P-wave velocity and point load index test2016Ingår i: INNOVATIVE INFRASTRUCTURE SOLUTIONS, ISSN 2364-4176, Vol. 1, nr 1, artikel-id UNSP 17Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Although there are many proposed relations for different rock types to predict the uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) as a function of P-wave velocity (V-P) and point load index (Is), only a few of them are focused on marlstones. However, these studies have limitations in applicability since they are mainly based on local studies. In this paper, an attempt is therefore made to present updated relations for two previous proposed correlations for marlstones in Iran. The modification process is executed through multivariate regression analysis techniques using a provided comprehensive database for marlstones in Iran, including UCS, V-P and Is from publications and validated relevant sources comprising 119 datasets. The accuracy, appropriateness and applicability of the obtained modifications were tested by means of different statistical criteria and graph analyses. The conducted comparison between updated and previous proposed relations highlighted better applicability in the prediction of UCS using the updated correlations introduced in this study. However, the derived updated predictive models are dependent on rock types and test conditions, as they are in this study.

    Analysis of heat recovery in supermarket refrigeration system using carbon dioxide as refrigerant2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to investigate the heat recovery potential in supermarket refrigeration systems using CO2 as refrigerants. The theoretical control strategy to recover heating demand from refrigeration system is explained thoroughly and the heat recovery process from two existing supermarket using CO2 booster units is analyzed and evaluated. The measured data of refrigeration systems is obtained through Iwmac interface, processed using Excel and Refprop. The aim is to see what control strategy is used in these systems and weather it matches the theoretical one and at what level heat is recovered from the system.

    Besides, a simulation model is made by EES to investigate the potential of higher rate of heat recovery in the supermarkets. The simulation results are compared with field measurement and validated by measured values. Then, the ability of refrigeration system to do heat recovery at quite high rates for covering the total heating demand without using parallel heating system is evaluated and efficiency of the system is calculated. At the next step the heat recovery potential at other refrigeration solutions such as R404A conventional and CO2-ammonia cascade systems are studied and the results are compared to booster units. Finally, the potential for selling heat from the refrigeration system in supermarket to district heating network is investigated. Two different scenarios are made for such purpose and the results are evaluated.

    The heat recovery control strategy of existing supermarkets does not match the theoretical strategy and regarding the capacity of the system, heat is recovered to low extent. Simulation shows that heat can be recovered to higher extent at quite high heating COP of 3-5. Additionally the other heat recovery solutions for R404A conventional and CO2-ammonia cascade systems are found to be competitive to CO2 booster system.  The analysis of selling heat to district heating network shows that CO2 booster system is capable of covering the demand at reasonable heating COP as the first priority and selling the rest to district heating network at heating COP of 2 as second priority.

    Modularization and evaluation of vehicle’s electrical system2019Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Modularisering är en strategi som används av många företag, för att hjälpa dem att erbjuda sina kunder en mängd olika anpassade produkter på ett effektivt sätt. Detta görs genom anpassning av olika oberoende moduler, som är kopplade med standardiserade gränssnitt som utnyttjas av alla modulvarianterna. Scania, som är ett av de stora företagen som erbjuder modulariserade produkter, har framgångsrikt förbättrat sina modulariseringskoncept under många år och är ett av de mest ikoniska företagen närdet gäller modularisering av bussar, lastbilar och motorer. Men med det ökande behovet av elektronik integrerad i fordonen blir det allt viktigare att modularisera det elektriska systemet.

    Det finns för närvarande en befintlig, modulär produktarkitektur för det elektriska systemet, och Scania vill veta hur väl modulariserat det är, eftersom det inte finns något enat sätt som anger vad som anses vara den bättre lösningen. För att analysera det elektriska systemets nuvarande tillstånd, måste en systematisk metod förmodularisering användas, vilket skulle hjälpa till att svara på tre viktiga frågor: Är modulerna väldefinierade? Finns det ett sätt att systematiskt jämföra alternativa lösningar? Vilka kriterier är viktigare att fokusera på?

    Eftersom det inte finns något enhetligt sätt att modularisera har många modulariseringsmetoder skapats, och var och en har optimerats för ett visst ändamål. I projektet jämförs tre olika modulariseringsmetoder och använder sedan en av de metoder som anses vara den föredragna metoden för att hjälpa till att ge svaren som företaget söker när man undersöker modulariteten hos det elektriska systemet.

    Eftersom det elektriska systemet är väldigt komplext och projektet har begränsat antal resurser beslutades det att välja en av kontrollenheterna som ett exempel, vilket var APS (luftbehandlingssystem). Litteraturstudien visade att den mest givande metoden att använda var MFD (Module FunctionDeployment), eftersom det ger mer information om produkten och vilka kriterier företaget ska fokusera på. Det bestämdes sedan att använda de relevanta stegen i MFD för att analysera APS tillståndet som ett exempel på hur den här metoden fungerar.

    Characterization and utilization of agroforestryresidues as energy source in Brazil2012Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (yrkesexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Brazil is very much rich in agriculture and forestry. The agro industry occupies an area of 28840726 ha. The more important crops are sugarcane (7080920 ha), rice (289030 ha), wheat (1853220 ha), coconut (283205 ha), cassava (1894460 ha), corn (13767400 ha) and grass (140000 ha). These crops generated 597 million tons of residues. Forest plantations in Brazil supplied 102.9 million m3 of industrial roundwood, of which nearly half is for renewable fuelwood and charcoal. Part of this plantation output is destined for the pulp and paper industry:

    The renewable sources are fulfilling 46.4% of the total Brazilian energy demands.

    Energy forestation in Brazil includes mainly Eucalyptus and Bracatingas.

    In this study three biomasses abundant in the Brazil are studied:  i.e. Eucalyptus, Garapeira/Peroba (wood dust) and Sewage Sludge.

    The wood samples (Eucalyptus and Peroba/Garapeira) have higher heating value than the sewage sludge because the wood samples have higher amounts of carbon and hydrogen than the sewage sludge. The sewage sludge has higher ash content and lower amount of volatiles and fixed carbon than the wood samples resulting in a lower heating value.

    The pyrolysis of eucalyptus, garapeira/peroba and sewage sludge has been studied in a thermobalance over a wide range of degradation temperatures. Between 225 °C - 375 °C (for eucalyptus) and 225 °C - 425 °C (for garapeira), the thermal decomposition of the biomass leads to significant weight loss.

    The weight loss for Eucalyptus between 265°C and 350°C is 0.48 % / °C and taking into account a heating rate of 10°C/min, the weight loss is 4.8 % /min. Garapeira has a similar behaviour than eucalyptus. The weight loss for garapeira between 265°C and 365°C is 0.4 % / °C and taking into account a heating rate of 10°C/min, the weight loss is 4 % /min.

    The behaviour of the sewage sludge to the increase of temperature from 25°C to 700 °C in an inert atmosphere do not show such different zones as the behaviour of the woody biomass. Between 150 °C and 235°C the weight loss of the sewage sludge was 0.07 %/°C (0.7 %/min). The highest weight loss takes place between 300 °C and 390 °C (0.15 %/°C or 1.5 %/min). In the third zone, between 500 °C and 600°C, the weight loss was 0.03 %/°C (0.3 %/min).

    The pyrolysis is assumed to be a first order decomposition. The activation energy (E) and the pre exponential factor (A) are calculated for the studied samples.

    The proximate analysis shows differences between the woody biomass and the sewage sludge. The sewage sludge has higher ash content and lower fixed carbon and volatiles. Eucalyptus has lower carbon fixed and higher volatiles than peroba-garapeira.

    Resource Conservative Manufacturing: New Generation of Manufacturing2011Licentiatavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The question of resource scarcity and emerging pressure of environmentallegislations have put the manufacturing industry with a new challenge. On theone side, there is a huge population that demands a large quantity ofcommodities, on the other side, these demands have to be met by minimumresources and with permissible pollution that the earth’s ecosystem can handle.In this situation, technologic breakthrough that can offer alternative resourceshas become essential. Unfortunately, breakthroughs do not follow any rule ofthumb and while waiting for a miracle, the manufacturing industry has to findways to conserve resources. Within this research the anatomy of a large body ofknowledge has been performed to find the best available practices for resourceconservation. Critical review of the research revealed that none of the availablesolutions are compatible with the level of resource conservation desired by themanufacturing industry or by society. It has also been discovered that a largegap exists between the solutions perceived by the scientists and theapplicability of those solutions. Through careful evaluation of the state-of-theart,the research presented in this thesis introduced a solution of maximizingresource conservation i.e., material, energy and value added, as used inmanufacturing. The solutions emerged from the novel concept named asResource Conservative Manufacturing, which is built upon the concept ofMultiple Lifecycle of product. Unlike other research work, the researchdocumented in this thesis started with the identification of the problem andfrom which a ‘wish to do’ list was drawn. The seriousness of the problem andpotential of adopting the proposed concept has been justified with concreteinformation. A great number of arguments have been presented to show theexisting gaps in the research and from that, a set of solutions to conserveresources has been proposed. Finally, one of the prime hypotheses concerningclosed loop supply chain has been validated through the system dynamicsmodeling and simulation.

    Minimizing Uncertainty Involved in Designing the Closed-loop Supply Network for Multiple-lifecycle of Products2010Ingår i: Annals Of DAAAM for 2010 & Proceedings of 21st DAAAM Symposium: Intelligent Manufacturing and Automation / [ed] Branko Katalinic, Zadar: DAAAM International , 2010, s. 1055-1056Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To ensure multiple-lifecycle of products through remanufacturing intervention requires a well-functioning closed-loop supply network. Generally, the unpredictability of quantity, timing and quality (physical/functional) of the returned products and demand fluctuation of the remanufactured products are the main sources of uncertainty of closed-loop supply network. To some extent, efficient recollection strategies and separate distribution channels for remanufactured products can minimize the uncertainty. Nevertheless, efficient recollection does not necessarily close the loop if the recovered products do not enter into the main stream of the supply network. Beside, products that are distributed through separate channels create an open loop. Thus, the problem of uncertainty remains unsolved. The aim of this paper is to propose solutions to minimize the uncertainty involved in designing a well-functioning closed-loop supply network using the system dynamics principle and tool.

    A practical ICT framework for transition to circular manufacturing systems2018Ingår i: Procedia CIRP, Elsevier, 2018, s. 598-602Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The transition towards a circular economy has become important. Manufacturing industry being a major stakeholder in this transition has started exploring the potential of this transition and challenges in implementation. Ambitious companies such as Gorenje d.d. has taken the circular economy transition seriously and aims to become a pioneer in implementing circular manufacturing systems. One vital step in this transition is the business model shift from the linear (sales model) to a circular model such as 'product as a service'. This brings new challenges to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) that have never been experienced in their conventional businesses. One of the challenges is to establish an information communication and technology (ICT) infrastructure that enables information management and sharing as well as establishes a real-time communication between relevant stakeholders. Outlining such an ICT infrastructure is the objective of this paper.

    Abstract [en]

    The Design for Repeatedly Utilization (DFRU) is a proposed conceptto be used in the product realizationprocess to ensure optimum useable life (forinstance in terms of economy, resourceusage, environmental impact etc.) ofproducts or parts of products enablingmultiple lifecycle. In the DFRU approachproducts are restored as new like productsthrough remanufacturing processes. Theterm remanufacturing has been interpreteddifferently by different researchers and theindustries that are involved inremanufacturing business use differentapproaches to remanufacture theirproducts. In this paper the starter motorand alternator of automotives has beenused to demonstrate the novel concepts.The purpose of this paper is to expresswhat remanufacturing means in ourconcept, model their major lifecycleaspects and create a simulation modelfrom it. This is a preliminary work towardsdefining and specifying the processes,methods and design properties in DFRU.The work will be further extended to aholistic business model which can facilitateDFRU approach in an efficient way. Infuture the model will be developed andadopted to create new models for otherproducts appropriate for remanufacturingand eventually DFRU.
