A general reverse logistics network design model for product reuse and recycling with environmental considerations
(Peer reviewed, 2016-04-02)
Reverse logistics is believed to be one of the most promising solutions for capturing the remaining values from used products and has been extensively focused by both academics and practitioners during the past two decades. Conceptual framework, mathematical programming and computational algorithms have been developed for decision making at strategic, tactical and operational levels of a reverse ...
An improved multi-objective programming with augmented ε-constraint method for hazardous waste location-routing problem
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-31)
Hazardous waste location-routing problems are of importance due to the potential risk for nearby residents and the environment. In this paper, an improved mathematical formulation is developed based upon a multi-objective mixed integer programming approach. The model aims at assisting decision makers in selecting locations for different facilities including treatment plants, recycling plants and ...
Resolvent bounds for jump generators
(Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2016-12-02)
The paper deals with jump generators with a convolution kernel. Assuming that the kernel decays either exponentially or polynomially, we prove a number of lower and upper bounds for the resolvent of such operators. In particular we focus on sharp estimates of the resolvent kernel for small values of the spectral parameter. We consider two applications of these results. First we obtain pointwise ...
Review of marine icing and anti-/de-icing systems
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-17)
The aim of this work is to review the phenomenon of icing in marine operations. The focus is on two main sources of icing, namely atmospheric and sea spray. The literature reveals that sea spray icing is the main contributor to marine icing. This work discusses the available ice accretion prediction models on ships and offshore structures. It also reviews the anti-/de-icing technologies that can be ...
A multi-objective mathematical programming for sustainable reverse logistics network design. Part II: Model application and analysis
(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 ...
Influence of local and regional air pollution on atmospheric measurements in Ny-Ålesund
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
The Zeppelin observatory is a research station near the village Ny-Ålesund in Svalbard. The facility delivers data to international projects devoted to high data quality monitoring of the background air pollution in the Arctic. An approach for quantifying the influence of local and regional pollution on measurements that may be misinterpreted as long-range transported one, is presented here. The ...
