      Dekhtyareva, Alena (Conference object, 2019)
      Current study investigates the 25-years seasonal trend in the concentration of SO2and non-sea salt SO42-and compares observed changes with the evolution in emission of sulphur agents in primary source regions of anthropogenic aerosols and alteration in characteristics of air masses transporting pollutants to Svalbard.
    • Adaptive Backstepping Control for a Fully-Actuated Rigid-Body in a Dual-Quaternion Framework 

      Andersen, Tom Stian; Kristiansen, Raymond (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2020-03-12)
      We address the trajectory tracking problem for a fully actuated rigid-body with unknown mass and inertia parameters and unknown disturbance forces, using an adaptive backstepping controller based on dual-quaternions. We show that the proposed controller, in closed loop with a nonlinear model of the system, renders the equilibrium points uniformly asymptotically stable. The proposed controller ...

    • Altering perceptions, visualizing sub-ground metal objects 

      Pedersen, Aleksander (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-06)
      Smart phones and sensor technology represent a key part of everyday life and are being used in areas such as safety, training, healthcare and others. Utilizing an array of internal sensors and a metal detector requires an evaluation of the precision of the measurements and performance reviews. Metal detectors are versatile, with uses in healthcare as well as recreational, but a common issue often ...
    • An Empirical Study on the Impact of Cultural Types on Resources Integration Model 

      Solvang, Wei Deng; Zhan, Yan; Lu, Jiansha (Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2012)
      From the perspective of Resource-based Theory (RBT), organizational culture can be a source of sustained competitive advantage. And resources integration models, divided by property rights of resource, not firm boundary, as internal and external resources integration models, are presented as being specific in different cultural contexts. However, the litera- ture review shows the absences of an ...
    • Analysis and Optimization of Sandwich Panels. Final report. 

      Røsdal, Arild (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-06-15)
      "The first part of this project, are general about sandwich structures. A sandwich construction, consist of two plate outsides (facings) glued to a core in the middle. Sandwiches are used in construction that must have a low weight, but a high stiffness. This indicated racing cars, aeroplane, ship shelters. To understand a sandwich construction, the basis, is to understand the sandwich beam. The are ...
    • Ant colony optimization and analysis of time step resolution in transmission expansion computations for wind power integration 

      Fuchs, Ida; Gjengedal, Terje (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2011)
      This paper investigates the necessary time step resolution in a transmission expansion planning algorithm based on ant colony optimization. A maximal and efficient wind power integration is the main motivation for the grid expansion, which requires a planning tool dealing with wind energy fluctuations. For the analysis a power system model for the Nordic area is used, including a wind power ...

Several Matlab and dSPACE simulations is made to test the charging and communication. A laboratory ...
    • An applied investigation of viscosity–density fluid sensors based on torsional resonators 

      Brunner, Daniel (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-12-04)
      Real-time viscosity and density measurements give insight into the status of many chemical and biochemical processes and allow for automated controls. In many applications, sensors that enable the real-time measurements of fluid properties use resonant elements. Such sensors measure induced changes in the element’s resonance frequency and damping that can be related to the fluid properties. These ...
    • Approaches to learning of linear algebra among engineering students 

      Rensaa, Ragnhild Johanne (Peer reviewed; Bok; Book; Bokkapittel; Chapter, 2017-02)
      The present paper investigates engineering students` own descriptions of what they mean by learning of linear algebra and how they know that they have learned something. I seek to extract keywords from engineering students` descriptions of learning of this discipline by drawing on grounded theory techniques and classifying the answers in conceptual and procedural approaches. By this, both detailed ...
    • Architecture for Safe Human-Robot Collaboration: Multi-Modal Communication in Virtual Reality for Efficient Task Execution 

      Shu, Beibei; Sziebig, Gabor; Pieters, Roel (Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019-08-01)
      Task-sharing and Human-Robot Collaboration has gained increased attention with the widespread commissioning and usage of collaborative robots. However, recent studies show that the fenceless collaborative robots are not as harmless as they look like. In order to study Human-Robot Interaction scenarios, in a safe manner, we propose to execute the scenario in Virtual Reality simulation and afterwards ...

      Braides, Andrea; Causin, Andrea; Piatnitski, Andrey; Solci, Margherita (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-30)
      We consider randomly distributed mixtures of bonds of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic type in a two-dimensional square lattice with probability 1−p 1−p and p, respectively, according to an i.i.d. random variable. We study minimizers of the corresponding nearest-neighbour spin energy on large domains in Z 2 Z2 . We prove that there exists p 0 p0 such that for p≤ p 0 p≤p0 such ...
    • Asymptotics of a spectral-sieve problem 

      Amirat, Youcef; Bodart, Olivier; Chechkin, Gregory; Piatnitski, Andrey (Peer reviewed, 2015-11-18)
      In a bounded domain with a thin periodically punctured interface we study the limit behavior of the bottom of spectrum for a Steklov type spectral problem, the Steklov boundary condition being imposed on the perforation surface. For a certain range of parameters we construct the effective spectral problem and justify the convergence of eigenpairs.
    • Asymptotics of fundamental solutions for time fractional equations with convolution kernels 

      Kondratiev, Yuri; Piatnitski, Andrey; Zhizhina, Elena (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-09-11)
      The paper deals with the large time asymptotic of the fundamental solution for a time fractional evolution equation with a convolution type operator. In this equation we use a Caputo time derivative of order α ∈ (0, 1), and assume that the convolution kernel of the spatial operator is symmetric, integrable and shows a super-exponential decay at infinity. Under these assumptions we describe the ...
