Analytical and Case Studies of a Sandwich Structure using Euler-Bernoulli Beam Equation
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11)
This paper presents analytical and case studies of sandwich structures. In this study, the Euler-Bernoulli beam equation is solved analytically for a four-point bending problem. Appropriate initial and boundary conditions are specified to enclose the problem. In addition, the balance coefficient is calculated and the Rule of Mixtures is applied. The focus of this study is to determine the effective ...
Applicability Extent of 2-D Heat Equation for Numerical Analysis of a Multiphysics Problem
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01)
This work focuses on thermal problems, solvable using the heat equation. The fundamental question being answered here is: what are the limits of the dimensions that will allow a 3-D thermal problem to be accurately modelled using a 2-D Heat Equation? The presented work solves 2-D and 3-D heat equations using the Finite Difference Method, also known as the Forward-Time Central-Space (FTCS) method, ...
Resilience Assessment: A Performance‐Based Importance Measure
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-12)
The resilience of a system can be considered as a function of its reliability and recoverability. Hence, for effective resilience management, the reliability and recoverability of all components which build up the system need to be identified. After that, their importance should be identified using an appropriate model for future resource allocation. The critical infrastructures are under dynamic ...
Marine icing observed on KV Nordkapp during a cold air outbreak with a developing polar low in the Barents sea.
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-06)
Marine icing is a phenomenon that may occur for temperatures below subfreezing where sea spray either is lofted from the sea surface or being generated by waves interacting with a ship or a structure. On a voyage from Tromsø to the waters east of Bjørnøya late February 1987, the Norwegian Coast Guard vessel KV Nordkapp experienced heavy icing due to a polar low that raged over these waters during ...
Finite element analysis of human femur bone
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-08-04)
An effort is made to analyse the stresses experienced by the human femur. In order to achieve these results a CAD model was developed by using the 3-D scanning of generic human femur for an individual of 70 kg weight (approx. averaged adult weight). The marrow cavity has been approximated as a hollow cylinder. The FEM model was built using solid tetrahedral element (20-noded 186 structural ...
Prediction of the long-term performance of green liquor dregs as a sealing layer to prevent the formation of acid mine drainage
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-10-08)
One of the mining industry's main concerns is the management of waste rock and tailings generated by sulfide ore extraction. Upon exposure of atmospheric oxygen, iron sulfides oxidize generating acidity. Infiltrating water form a metal-rich acidic leachate called acid mine drainage (AMD), that can cause serious environmental problems. Green liquor dregs (GLD) is a material that resists the passage ...

International Cooperation on Search and Rescue in the Arctic
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-09)
SAR in the Arctic is a complex and dynamic cross-disciplinary activity that requires the combined effort of multiple actors with specialized human and technical resources. Due to limited resources and infrastructure in the Arctic, international cooperation is particularly important. This article applies a conceptual framework drawn from regime-theory to study SAR cooperation in the Arctic. More ...
Development of strategic asset management planning in the petroleum industry
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
<i>Purpose</i> – Due to the certain risk carried in offshore petroleum installations, the integrity of these installations needs to be maintained at all times. Thus, asset integrity management (AIM) needs to be formulated and monitored to achieve the integrity objective. The purpose of this paper is to study the practices and progression of strategic AIM planning in the petroleum industry. ...
Ship Performance and Navigation Data Compression and Communication under Autoencoder System Architecture
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-21)
Modern vessels are designed to collect, store and communicate large quantities of ship performance and navigation information through complex onboard data handling processes. That data should be transferred to shore based data centers for further analysis and storage. However, the associated transfer cost in large-scale data sets is a major challenge for the shipping industry, today. The same cost ...
