    • WallMon : Interactive distributed monitoring of process-level resource usage on display and compute clusters 

      Nilsen, Arild (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2011-11)
      To achieve low overhead, traditional cluster monitoring systems sample data at low frequencies and with coarse granularity. However, interactive monitoring requires frequent (up to 60 Hz) sampling of fine-grained data and ...
    • Water and heat transfer in cement based materials 

      Nguyen, Hung Thanh (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2011-06-17)
      For the mass transfer case (the absorption of moisture-water into concrete), the water content in concrete has a significant impact on its mechanical properties. Moisture transport in porous media, for example, plays an ...

    • Wet snow detection by C-band SAR in avalanche forecasting 

      Hopsø, Ingrid Strømsvik (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-12-15)
      Avalanches usually occur in steep, snow-covered mountain sides under special conditions. The stability of the snowpack depends, among other things, on the melting and freezing of the snowpack. If a snow covered area has ...
