Measurement of Wind Flow Behavior at the Leeward Side of Porous Fences Using Ultrasonic Anemometer Device
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-01)
Efficiency of wind fences is evaluated by the reduction of wind velocity and the effective shelter area behind the fence. Fence porosity is the most influential structural parameters in the porous fence design, and has significant impact on the structure of wind velocity and turbulence leeward. In this work, three fences with porosity of 23%, 35% and 45% have been tested under 10m/s inlet velocity ...
Ice Detection Experimentation Setup Using Infrared and Active Heating
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-24)
The paper shows the possible implementation of Infrared (IR) ice detection technique. The experimental setup is implemented keeping in view of the marine icing phenomena over the ships and offshore structures. The detection mechanism is unique from the passive IR detection by introducing the active heating concept. The intervention of the active heating information inside the IR ice detection system ...
Subsumption architecture applied to flight control using composite rotations
(Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel; Journal article, 2016-03-19)
In this paper the subsumption theory is applied to flight control through composite rotations where multiple tasks can be defined as simple rotations. The tasks can then be arranged as a hierarchy, where the primary task is always fully pursued, and conflicting lower level tasks are removed by the primary rotation. The concept is applied to a group of uavs that move through an urban terrain while ...
Some new estimates of the ‘Jensen gap’

A multi-objective mathematical programming for sustainable reverse logistics network design. Part I: Model formulation
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 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 comparing with the forward ones. Therefore, it is important to develop decision support tools for ...
Weighted Hardy type inequalities for supremum operators on the cones of monotone functions
(Peer reviewed, 2016-09-28)
The complete characterization of the weighted L<sup>p</sup>-L<sup>r</sup> inequalities of supremum operators on the cones of monotone functions for all 0 < p, r≤∞ is given.
Some sharp inequalities for integral operators with homogeneous kernel
(Peer reviewed, 2016-04-09)
One goal of this paper is to show that a big number of inequalities for functions in Lp(R+), p ≥ 1, proved from time to time in journal publications are particular cases of some known general results for integral operators with homogeneous kernels including, in particular, the statements on sharp constants. Some new results are also included, e.g. the similar general equivalence result is proved and ...
Numerical simulation of the dynamic response in pulse-loaded fibre–metal-laminated plates
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-27)
This article presents a three-dimensional constitutive model to replicate the dynamic response of blast-loaded fibre–metal laminates made of 2024-0 aluminium alloy and woven composite (glass fibre–reinforced polypropylene). Simulation of the dynamic response is challenging when extreme localised loads are of concern and requires reliable material constitutive models as well as accurate modelling ...
A decision-support model for operational planning of surface coal mining considering equipment failure
(Peer reviewed; Bokkapittel; Konferansebidrag; Conference object; Chapter, 2016)
This paper presents a decision-support model aiming, primarily, at maximizing the productivity of surface coal mining activities through operational planning and management. The model is formulated based upon mixed integer programming, and it determines the optimal production plan of the shovels and allocation plan of the haul trucks in order to minimize operational cost, fuel consumption as well ...
Osmosis for non-electrolyte solvents in permeable periodic porous media
(Peer reviewed, 2016-08)
The paper gives a rigorous description, based on mathematical homogenization theory, for flows of solvents with not charged solute particles under osmotic pressure for periodic porous media permeable for solute particles. The effective Darcy type equations for the flow under osmotic pressure distributed within the porous media are derived. The effective Darcy law contains an additional flux term ...
