Diploma work

At the Division of Applied Mechanics we can offer a number of suitable projects for MSc theses, Bachelor thesis and smaller project courses. If you are a student at Uppsala University, feel free to contact any faculty member in the division for more information. You can find contact information under People.

Ongoing/ previous projects:

Emmy Lano, guest master's student from Supmicrotech ENSMM Besançon, France, supervisor: Sara Florisson
"Development of finite element meshes from wood tomograms. Computed tomography is an imaging technique for obtaining three-dimensional images of inhomogeneous materials. The project will have a special interest for the hygro-mechanical wood behaviour." 

Luc Villibord, Master's thesis in Materials Engineering at Uppsala University, industrial partner: Hitachi Energy, subject reviewer: Mahmoud Mousavi.
"Simulation of moisture transport in porous transformer’s insulation using Finite Element Method."

Manon Martinien, guest master's student from SUPMICROTECH-ENSMM Besançon, France, supervisor: Haiyang Yu
"Create a model to simulate lignin diffusion with Finite Element Modelling (FEM) and calibrate the diffusion coefficient from experimental data. The context is building a multi-scale model to simulate the delignification occurring during Kraft cooking."

Daniel Lundberg, Master's thesis in Engineering Physics with Materials Science at Uppsala University, industrial partner: Hitachi Energy, subject reviewer: Mahmoud Mousavi.
"Thermal simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics for more demanding loading cases of tap-changers, in which the tap-changer oil could potentially reach temperatures close to or above its limit. The thesis work lead to the development of an app used by the company for future technical evaluations of their tap-changer models."

Siddharth Nadukkandy, Master's thesis in Additive Manufacturing, industrial partner: GKN, subject reviewer: Mahmoud Mousavi
"AM made heat exchangers for aerospace applications"

Julia Ibstedt, Master's thesis in Engineering Physics, industrial partner: NITIU, subject reviewer: Mahmoud Mousavi
"Multi-Scale Topology Optimization of Lattice Structures Using Machine Learning"
