  • A study on hybrid sensor technology in winter road assessment 

    Pedersen, Aleksander; Brustad, Tanita Fossli (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-23)
    Road conditions during the winter months in Nordic countries can be highly unstable. Slippery roads combined with heavy haul traffic and ordinary road users can create dangerous, even lethal, situations if road maintenance is unsuccessful. Accidents and critical road conditions may lead to blocked roads, putting strain on a limited number of main roads in many regions, and may in the worst case ...

  • Preliminary studies on transition curve geometry: Reality and virtual reality 

    Brustad, Tanita Fossli (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-02-01)
    The topic of transition curves is well known in track and road engineering. Over the years the need for easement between straight and curved sections in railway and road design has grown, with an important reason being increase in vehicle speed. Testing of transitions is often done with graph analysis where the property of lateral change of acceleration is compared between varieties of curves. ...
  • Railway transition curves: A review of the state-of-the-art and future research 

    Brustad, Tanita Fossli; Dalmo, Rune (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-05-18)
    Transition curves are a useful tool for lateral alignment of railway segments. Their design is important to ensure safe and comfortable travel for passengers and cargo. Well designed transition curves can lead to reduced wear of tracks and vehicles, which is beneficial from a maintenance point of view. Extensive studies have been performed through decades to find transition curves that can replace ...
  • Development of a Model for the Estimation of the Energy Consumption Associated with the Transportation of CO2 in Pipelines 

    Jackson, Steven (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-05-12)
    All Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) projects require the transportation of CO<sub>2</sub> from a source to a storage location. Although, a compressor and a large diameter pipeline is the normal method used to achieve this, liquefaction, shipping and pumping is sometimes attractive. Identifying the economic optimum is important for all CCS projects, minimizing energy consumption is also important ...

    Oguntuase, J. A.; Fabelurin, Olanrewaju O; Persson, Lars Erik; Adeleke, EO (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-02-11)
    We obtain some further refinements of Hardy-type inequalities via superqudraticity technique. Our results both unify and further generalize several results on refinements of Hardy-type inequalities in the literature.
  • Some inequalities related to strong convergence of Riesz logarithmic means 

    Lukkassen, Dag; Persson, Lars Erik; Tephnadze, George; Tutberidze, Giorgi (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-23)
    In this paper we derive a new strong convergence theorem of Riesz logarithmic means of the one-dimensional Vilenkin–Fourier (Walsh–Fourier) series. The corresponding inequality is pointed out and it is also proved that the inequality is in a sense sharp, at least for the case with Walsh–Fourier series.
  • Some new Fourier inequalities for unbounded orthogonal systems in Lorentz-Zygmund spaces 

    Akishev, Gabdolla; Lukkassen, Dag; Persson, Lars Erik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-20)
    In this paper we prove some essential complements of the paper (J. Inequal. Appl. 2019:171, 2019) on the same theme. We prove some new Fourier inequalities in the case of the Lorentz–Zygmund function spaces L q,r (logL ) α Lq,r(log⁡L)α involved and in the case with an unbounded orthonormal system. More exactly, in this paper we prove and discuss some new Fourier inequalities of this type for ...
  • A New Look at the Single Ladder Problem (SLP) via Integer Parametric Solutions to the Corresponding Quartic Equation 

    Høibakk, Ralph; Lukkassen, Dag; Meidell, Annette; Persson, Lars Erik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-02-18)
    The aim is to put new light on the single ladder problem (SLP). Some new methods for finding complete integer solutions to the corresponding quartic equation z 4 −2L z 3 +( L 2 − a 2 − b 2 ) z 2 +2L a 2 z− L 2 a 2 =0 z4−2Lz3+(L2−a2−b2)z2+2La2z−L2a2=0 are developed. For the case L≥ L min L≥Lmin , these methods imply a complete parametric representation for integer ...
  • Dihedral Group D4 - A New Feature Extraction Algorithm 

    Sharma, Puneet (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-04-04)
    In this paper, we propose a new feature descriptor for images that is based on the dihedral group D<sub>4</sub> , the symmetry group of the square. The group action of the D<sub>4</sub> elements on a square image region is used to create a vector space that forms the basis for the feature vector. For the evaluation, we employed the Error-Correcting Output Coding (ECOC) algorithm and tested our model ...
  • Onshore and Offshore Coordination of Logistics Services at Seaports 

    Adu-Gyamfi Appiah, Bright (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
    As global trade increases, sizes of vessels and cargo throughputs have also experienced a sudden rise thereby putting excess pressure on ship berths and ports. This is shifting most ports to much smarter technological solutions with the aim of optimizing operations, increasing efficiency and reducing logistics cost without the need for huge infrastructural and equipment investments. Developing the ...

  • Production and Logistics Systems Improvements - Biim Ultrasound AS 

    Tofah, Dzifa Korbla Wisdom (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
    A crucial aspect of the supply chain network design process is deciding on optimal locations to situate new facilities. Facility location decisions rely on many factors, some of which might be conflicting with each other. The decision factors can be either quantitative or qualitative, thus a brute-force prioritization of one over another could be detrimental overall. To ensure the efficacy of the ...

    Arumairasa, Hans Ivar (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
    Manufacturing of thin wall structure by wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) is on the main application of additive manufacturing. 3D-printing technology has significant advantages over traditional milling and machining techniques or welded analogs. Thin wall structure constitutes an essential and growing proportion of engineering construction, within common areas as in structural aerospace and ...
  • Optimized cardiac simulation as a tool to understand patient specific mechanical function 

    Odeigah, Oscar Ofordile (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
    The muscular tissue of the heart is able to contract in the absence of external load. This behaviour is stimulated by a spontaneous electrical depolarization of cardiac cells in the sinoatrial node, which spreads electrical activation through the whole heart, that triggers the synchronized mechanical contraction of the heart muscle. This phenomenon, referred to as active contraction is commonly ...
  • Wind turbine and ice breaking 

    Nilsen, Peter Tor Furseth (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
    The arctic climate imposes the challenge of ice accretion on the blades of the wind turbine created by the atmospheric ice. Over time, the ice build-up causes ice shedding which can do structural damage to the wind turbine. The process involving ice breaking and shedding is not well understood. This document explains the mechanical properties of ice such as density, coefficient of thermal expansion, ...
