Analysis and Modelling of the French Capacity Mechanism: Impact Assessment of Energy Policy Measures on the Security of Supply By Emil Kraft English | PDF | 2017 | 141 Pages | ISBN : 3658200928 | 1.57 MB
Emil Kraft analyses the French capacity remuneration mechanism design and develops a capacity market model that draws upon an agent-based simulation. The capacity mechanism was implemented to mitigate the imminent risk to the security of supply and to complement the electricity markets.
Numerical Simulation and Experimental Investigation of the Fracture Behaviour of an Electron Beam Welded Steel Joint By Haoyun Tu English | PDF | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 178 Pages | ISBN : 3319672762 | 13.11 MB
In this thesis, the author investigates experimentally and numericallythe fracture behavior of an electron beam welded joint made fromtwo butt S355 plates. The 2D Rousselier model, the Gurson-Tvergaard-Needleman (GTN) model and the cohesive zone model (CZM) wereadopted to predict the crack propagation of thick compact tension (CT)specimens. Advantages and disadvantages of the three mentioned modelsare discussed.
