  • 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 ...

    Winter road assessment is a research field with considerable progress over the last 10 years. Various sensors and methods have been tested and analysed, often in a laboratory setting, in order to come up with robust and valid assessment tools that can be used to warn the driver, road users in general, and maintenance personnel of critical conditions. In this paper we compare the field measurements ...
  • Local refinement of ERBS curves 

    Dalmo, Rune (Journal article; Peer reviewed; Chapter, 2013-12-31)
    Expo-rational B-splines (ERBS) provide a blending type construction where local functions at each knot are blended together by infinitely smooth basis functions. In this work we consider some specific ERBS curves that are approximations of parametric curves. We study local refinement to increase flexibility by inserting local control curves at points of interest on the ERBS curve. Inserting knots ...

    Track geometry is a fundamental subject in railway construction. With the demand for increased capacity in terms of load and speed, the need for suitable transitions between consecutive track sections is highly relevant. Properly constructed transition curves lead to improved travel comfort, increased safety, and reduced wear. The well known clothoid curve is widely used as a transition curve; ...
  • 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 ...
