Approaches to learning of linear algebra among engineering students
(Peer reviewed; Bok; Bokkapittel; Book; 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 ...
Exploring Tensions in a Mathematical Course for Engineers utilizing a Flipped Classroom Approach
(Book; Chapter; Bok; Bokkapittel; Peer reviewed, 2017-02)
Flipped Classroom approaches to teaching are becoming increasingly popular in higher education, but there is a lack of empirical research. We present here a study performed during an engineering course for 20 students at a Norwegian university, on student appropriation towards Flipped Classroom through interviews, questionnaire, video/quiz usage statistics and classroom filming. We approach this ...
Solution of Pure Scattering Radiation Transport Equation (RTE) Using Finite Difference Method (FDM)
(Peer reviewed; Bok; Bokkapittel; Book; Chapter, 2017-05-19)
Radiative transfer is the physical phenomenon of energy transfer in the form of electromagnetic radiation. The propagation of radiation through a medium is affected by absorption, emission, and scattering. Radiative Transfer Equation (RTE) have been applied in a many subjects including optics, astrophysics, atmospheric science, remote sensing, etc. Analytic solutions for RTE exist for simple cases, ...
Digitalization of the power business: How to make this work?
(Peer reviewed; Bok; Book; Bokkapittel; Chapter, 2018)
As a result of the digitalization of the power business in Norway and Europa, a lot of new possibilities and challenges arise. In 2014 an expert committee one outlined a proposal for the future grid company structure in Norway (Reiten, 2014). In addition, new technologies are being implemented in the system. Wind power, solar power, un-regulated small hydro power production, battery storage domestic ...
Improving the Decision-making of Reverse Logistics Network Design Part I: A MILP Model under Stochastic Environment
(Peer reviewed; Book; Bokkapittel; Bok; Chapter, 2018-02-11)
The study of the network design problems related to reverse supply chain and reverse logistics is of great interest for both academicians and practitioners due to its important role for a sustainable society. However, reverse logistics network design is a complex decision-making problem that involves several interactive factors and faces many uncertainties. Thus, in order to improve the reverse ...
