Large eddy simulation of homogeneous isotropic turbulence
AuthorZeigler, Harald Bergersen
The theme for the master thesis is simulation of homogeneous, isotropic turbulence. I have shown that the energy of the velocity field is decaying in time, but the comparison to the reference solution is however invalid, due to the fact that the reference solution may have scalings that are not obvious to the observer, and that my own simulation results seemed to behave quite strange, with a sudden fall of energy in the first time-steps, which I have no explanation for why happened. The thesis consists of a rather large theory section and a smaller discussion in the end. Chapters 3 and 4 are mainly introductory and addressing the theme and job description. They also serve as mild introductions to tuirbulence theory as well as mathematical, numerical subjects. Overall, the reader is assumed not to be very familiar with mathematical terms, applied mathematics and physics, so many terms are explained. The provided theory is designed to teach a reader totally unfamiliar with science some things, but not all. The author has not forgot about the experienced reader who may be an expert in the field, and the level of the thesis should be high enough for that person also to maintain interest while reading.

Baadshaug, Ole (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-06-29)Moving icebergs represent a major problem for shipping, as well as for oil and gas installations in ice infested waters. To be able to take actions against hazardous icebergs, it is necessary to develop models for prediction of iceberg drift trajectories. Many models have been developed in order to do so, using different approaches. These approaches can be divided into two main categories, dynamic ...
Schulz, Jörn (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2013-12-18)The use of statistical shape analysis in medical settings has increased during the last decades. This thesis presents contributions to three major topics of statistical shape analysis with application to medical problems. These topics are: the modeling of the shape by a geometrical model, the study of rotational shape deformations and the comparison of shapes between populations. Paper I presents ...
Johansen, Thomas A. Haugland (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-12-08)The key objectives in this thesis are; the study of GPU-accelerated eigenvalue decomposition in an effort to uncover both benefits and pitfalls, and then to investigate and facilitate a future GPU implementation of the symmetric QR algorithm with permutations. With the current trend of having ever larger datasets both in terms of features and observations, we propose that GPU computation can help ...
