    • Solutions to some problems related to Diophantine equation, power means and homogenization theory 

      Høibakk, Ralph (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2017-05-19)
      This Ph.D. thesis consists of an introduction and 7 papers where we investigate the requirements for finding integer or rational solutions to a selection of Diophantine equations leading to problems connected to power means and homogenization. In Paper 1 we present a modern view of classic number theory in a historic context. In Paper 2 we introduce the Crossed Ladders Problem and present a proof ...
    • Optimization models and methods for sustainable reverse logistics network design 

      Yu, Hao (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2018-11-29)
      With the increased focus on sustainable development and circular economy, as never before, the value recovery and re-creation from the End-of-Use and End-of-Life products has been paid considerable attention by the whole society. Reverse logistics is believed as one of the most effective and promising means for the value recovery of the End-of-Use and End-of-Life products, which is the process for ...
    • Studies of some Operators of Harmonic Analysis in certain Function Spaces with Applications to PDEs 

      Lundberg, Staffan (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2018-12-05)
      The study in this PhD thesis aims at development of certain mathematical methods used in applications, in particular, in the study of regularity properties of solutions in various mathematical models described by Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). To this end, we study various operators of harmonic analysis in certain function spaces, since solutions to many PDEs may be expressed in terms of ...
    • Representation and application of spline-based finite elements 

      Kravetc, Tatiana (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-03-31)
      Isogeometric analysis, as a generalization of the finite element method, employs spline methods to achieve the same representation for both geometric modeling and analysis purpose. Being one of possible tool in application to the isogeometric analysis, blending techniques provide strict locality and smoothness between elements. Motivated by these features, this thesis is devoted to the design and ...
    • Some new contributions related to structural problems in engineering 

      Seger, Andreas (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-06-17)
      <p>The studies in this PhD thesis are focused on some problems of general interest in applied mathematics and engineering sciences. A very broad view is used from contributions which can be directly used for solving some important structural problems in engineering sciences, to contributions which also are of interest in pure mathematics. The main body of the PhD thesis consists of five papers (papers ...
    • Engineering methods for enhancing railway geometry and winter road assessment: A safety and maintenance perspective 

      Brustad, Tanita Fossli (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-06-22)
      In many areas around the world there are limited transportation possibilities when travelling between key cities. If these areas also experience demanding weather conditions or geography, getting from A to B, during difficult conditions, is usually not optimal in regards to accessibility, safety, and comfort. Under challenging conditions, two essential elements in strengthening accessibility, safety, ...
    • Geometric Modeling- and Sensor Technology Applications for Engineering Problems 

      Pedersen, Aleksander (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-10-20)
      In applications for technical problems, Geometric modeling and sensor technology are key in both scientific and industrial development. Simulations and visualization techniques are the next step after defining geometry models and data types. This thesis attempts to combine different aspects of geometric modeling and sensor technology as well as to facilitate simulation and visualization. It includes ...
    • 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 ...
    • Mathematical modelling of bioenergy systems for stability analysis and parametric sensitivity 

      Das, Subhashis (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-03-19)
      <p>This thesis presents a research study on bioreactor design and biochemical processes for conversion of biomass into bioenergy and develops mathematical models that can be used for designing better reactors and control systems. Good design of the bioreactors and understanding of the biochemical process is essential to control the process for maximizing the yield. Improving the performance efficiency ...

    • The Impact of Ambient Temperature on Low Carbon Energy Supply - Modelling and optimization studies on the supply of hydrogen energy from northern Norway 

      Jackson, Steven (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-12-10)
      To avoid the worst impacts of climate change a rapid green energy transition is required where traditional fossil fuels are replaced by low-carbon alternatives. One attractive route to emissions reduction is blue hydrogen, which has lower CO<sub>2</sub> emissions that traditional hydrogen production. For hydrocarbon exporters, increased blue hydrocarbon production can be achieved in two main ways: ...
