Application of reliability and maintainability analysis in the Svea coal mine
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-05)
The field of reliability engineering is developing, as needed in the industry. This is especially in arctic regions which now are being explored and vast recourses and opportunities are found. The reliability research is limited in the arctic, little knowledge is known about operating in the arctic regions. This research study will analyze equipment in an arctic region, Svalbard. It calculates the ...
Empirical and dynamical modeling of debris flow events close to Longyearbyen and Svea, Svalbard
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-06-30)
Debris flows are a mountain slope hazard relatively well studied in densely populated mountainous regions, while few investigations have been done in Arctic permafrost regions. In order to get a better understanding of the processes involved in such an envi-ronment, this work focused on debris flow hazards in the mountains close to Longyear-byen and Svea on Svalbard, Norway, situated at 78°N.
