  • Playing a video game is more than mere procrastination 

    Nordby, Kent; Løkken, Ronny Andre; Pfuhl, Gerit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-13)
    <i>Background</i>: Procrastination is seen as a severe problem among young people, and many factors have been claimed to be associated with it, playing video games being one of them. One of the reasons why video games might be related to procrastination is their ability to offer instant gratification and feedback, while at the same time offer distractions from less tempting and rewarding tasks. ...

    "Årlig koster byggeskader samfunnet 17 milliarder, gjennom undersøkelser utført av SINTEF byggforsk er det konkludert med at 65-70 prosent av disse byggeskadene skyldes fukt (TU, 2017). Bygge skader som dette har resultert i at Plan og bygningsloven (PBL) og Direktoratet for byggkvalitet (DIBK) utarbeidet en ny forskrift som trådte i kraft pr. 1.1.2013 som ett tiltak på å redusere bygge skader. ...
  • Kritiske faktorer for effektivisering ved bygging av småhus. Hvordan kan småhusbransjen benytte digitalisering og industrialisering til å effektivisere boligbyggingen og redusere reklamasjoner? 

    Ådnanes, Vegard (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-26)
    Småhusbransjen er et segment i bygge- og anleggsbransjen, en bransje som mellom år 2000 og 2016 opplevde en nedgang i effektivitet og produktivitet på 10 prosent. Denne nedgangen skyldes mange forskjellige faktorer, men blant annet ulike byggemetoder, dårlig planlegging og logistikk har ført til at det tar lengre tid å bygge en bolig i dag. Økt fokus på effektivisering ved boligbygging er et populært ...

  • Optimization of the Energy Consumption of a Carbon Capture and Sequestration Related Carbon Dioxide Compression Processes 

    Jackson, Steven; Brodal, Eivind (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-26)
    It is likely that the future availability of energy from fossil fuels, such as natural gas, will be influenced by how efficiently the associated CO2 emissions can be mitigated using carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). In turn, understanding how CCS affects the efficient recovery of energy from fossil fuel reserves in different parts of the world requires data on how the performance of each part ...
  • An Improved Mathematical Model for Green Lock Scheduling Problem of the Three Gorges Dam 

    Zhao, Xu; Lin, Qianjun; Yu, Hao (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-08)
    In recent years, the environmental pollutions at the Three Gorges Dam have become an increasingly concerning issue of the Chinese government. One of the most significant environmental problems is the carbon emissions from the lockage operations at the two ship locks of the Three Gorges Dam. Currently, due to the large amount of vessels passing through the dam, there is always a long queue of vessels ...

  • Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) Modelling of Aquaculture Net Cage 

    Myrli, Odd Einar; Khawaja, Hassan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    The number of good sites in less exposed locations for aquaculture farming is limited. Trends are now that the fish cages are increasing in both width and depth, as well as more weather-exposed locations, are taken into use. As the net cages continue to increase in size, so does the material costs. The design of the sea cages should be modified for safe and reliable use in remote offshore locations. ...
  • A multi-objective mathematical programming for sustainable reverse logistics network design. Part II: Model application and analysis 

    Yu, Hao; Solvang, Wei Deng; Solvang, Bjørn (Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2016-02)
    Reverse logistics has received more and more attention during the past decade due to the increasing public awareness of sustainable development. Because of the fluctuation in both quantity and quality of the reverse material flow, design and planning of reverse logistics network is much more complicated compared with the forward ones. Therefore, it is important to develop decision support tools for ...

  • Atomized feedback, an approach to automatic formative assessment 

    Steen, Arild; Movik, Hans Richard (Peer reviewed; Chapter, 2017-11)
    In this article, we describe an approach to give automatic formative evaluation by atomizing the feedback. The mechanics in this approach is a large number of multiple-choice tests. The multiplechoice tests are used as voluntary assignments and gives controlled progression by releasing the tests in an order. Instruction is in the spirit of flipped classroom with short video lectures accompanied by ...
