    • Unprecedented Vessel-Icing Climatology based on Spray-Icing Modelling and Reanalysis Data: A Risk-Based Decision-Making Input for Arctic Offshore Industries 

      Naseri, Masoud; Samuelsen, Eirik Mikal (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-11)
      Marine icing is considered a major concern for vessels operating in the Arctic Ocean. Interaction between vessels and waves is the major source of sea spray that, under certain conditions, can lead to ice accretion on the vessels and thus create hazardous situations. Various models have been developed for the estimation of ice accretion rate using meteorological and oceanographic parameters. Various ...
    • User Satisfaction in Augmented Reality-Based Training Using Microsoft HoloLens 

      Xue, Hui; Sharma, Puneet; Wild, Fridolin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-25)
      With the recent developments in augmented reality (AR) technologies comes an increased interest in the use of smart glasses for hands-on training. Whether this interest is turned into market success depends at the least on whether the interaction with smart AR glasses satisfies users, an aspect of AR use that so far has received little attention. <br>With this contribution, we seek to change this. ...
    • Way-finding on-board training for maritime vessels 

      Tvedt, Sturle Danielsen; Oltedal, Helle Asgjerd; Batalden, Bjørn-Morten; Oliveira, Manuel Fradinho (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-03)
      In the maritime industry, it is of vital importance that personnel onboard ships are familiarized with the ship’s layout, along with safety equipment and processes for safeguarding of the individual seafarer and the ship’s crew. In fact, international maritime regulations require that all personnel employed or engaged on a seagoing ship receive proper familiarization training. However, several studies ...
    • What similarities can municipalities experience in crisis management? 

      Nilsen, Aud Solveig (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2017-06)
      Municipalities have an important role in crisis management. The Norwegian emergency principles of responsibility, parity and proximity are central, and the government expects municipalities to take care of crises in their area in accordance with the civil protection law. Due to the varying natures of different crises, one can expect crisis management to take different paths. This paper challenges ...
    • Wind Chill Effect in Cold Climate: Study of Wind Chill Effect Using Infrared Imaging 

      Ahmad, Tanveer (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2016)
      Wind chill factor is explained as the cooling sensation due to the exposure of wind temperature environment. The wind chill factor depends on air temperature, wind velocity and humidity. Wind chill poses serious health risks. Various wind chill index models are given in literature. In order to understand the wind chill effect, it is important to understand the phenomenon of heat transfer. There are ...
