  • Optimal Positioning for Transceivers in Network 

    Aasvold, Jarand Rage (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2024-05-22)
    This thesis investigates the use of optimization techniques to configure a network of short-range transceivers for best coverage of a topographic layer. Three methods are presented, tested, and analysed. The thesis is inspired by the limited range of underwater wireless communication transceivers. The coverage is defined by free "Line of Sight" (LOS) and a 100 meter transceiver range. The terrain ...
  • Deciphering climate change impacts on resource extraction supply chain: a systematic review 

    Garmabaki, Amir Hossein; Kasraei, Ahmad; Barabady, Javad (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024)
    Mining is becoming increasingly vulnerable to the effects of climate change (CC). The consequences of changing weather patterns, such as extreme weather events that can damage equipment, infrastructure, mining facilities, and operation interruption, are the source of the vulnerability. The new demand initiated by governments and international agreements put extra pressure on mining industries to ...
  • Annerledes og likeverdig: førstelektorstillingens skjebne under akademias konvensjoner 

    Eriksen, Stig; Hakel, Katja (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-06-07)
    I Norge finnes to karriereveier innen undervisning og forskning i høyere utdanning. Veien fra stipendiat via førsteamanuensis til professor er den mest brukte. Men en tredel av de tilsatte i høyere utdanning er tilsatt i en karrierestige som går fra universitets- eller høgskolelektor via førstelektor til dosent. De to karriereveiene kan sies å være knyttet til ulike kunnskapsregimer. I de siste 20 ...

  • Hvordan kan en styrke sikkerhetsbarrieren mennesket i flyoperasjoner? 

    Tolleshaug, Bjørn-Inge (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2024-05-27)
    Luftfartens historie er kort. Begynnelsen var preget av modige pionerer som trosset farer for å erobre himmelen. Etter hvert som luftfarten ble en kommersiell virksomhet, kom krav om høy sikkerhet. Etter en lang periode med prioritering av teknisk sikkerhet, er oppmerksomheten nå på sikkerhetsstyring, og på menneskets rolle i ulykker. Den moderne luftfarten er kompleks. Forskere som Reason, ...

The characteristics in question were experience, currency, workload and complexity. The empirical data used in the study (n = 16) was collected through a questionnaire distributed to three operational ...
  • Destruktivt lederskap i luftfarten. En studie om sammenhengen mellom lederatferd og utbrenthet, jobbengasjement og organisasjonsforpliktelse i et flysikkerhetsperspektiv. 

    Steinsli, Stian (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2024-05-25)
    Destruktiv ledelse og teorien rundt dette fenomenet er forholdsvis lite utforsket, både generelt, men også i luftfartsbransjen. Det finnes likevel noe forskning som denne studien kan knyttes opp mot. Destruktivt lederskap er til en viss grad utbredt, og denne typen ledelse har vist seg skadelig både for organisasjon og de ansatte. Denne studien belyser mulige sammenhenger mellom destruktiv ledelse, ...

  • Risk Assessment of a Mars Colony Utilizing a Mars-Svalbard Training Analog 

    Barger, Derrick (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2024-05-04)
    As the space industry is rapidly privatized and countries once again have their eyes set on the moon and beyond, humanity is getting closer and closer to the days where a colony on Mars is a reality. During the preliminary planning phase of a mission to Mars, a large scale, top-down overview is essential. This report applies a risk and safety engineering approach to identify each of the core hazards, ...
  • Localized advanced ship predictor for maritime situation awareness with ship close encounter 

    Wang, Yufei; Perera, Lokukaluge Prasad Channa; Batalden, Bjørn-Morten Erdal (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-05-04)
    The marine navigation environment can become further complex when ships with different autonomy levels are introduced. To ensure navigation safety in such a mixed environment, advanced ship predictor type technologies are essential in aiding ship navigators to attain the highest levels of situation awareness (SA). Consequently, precise ship trajectory prediction, specifically within a short prediction ...
  • Investigation and analysis of the ‘cold’ sensation relation with respect to associated parameters: wind velocity, ambient temperature, humidity, and irradiance

    Yuan, Fuqing; Lu, Jinmei (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-02-01)
    Assessment of reliability of personal computer is a challenge for the developer as the lack of sufficient data. Ordinary statistical approach depending on large dataset has less convincible result for the developer to make decision. Prior to massive production, the computer manufacturer runs a life test by picking up a certain number of new computers to run to failure to enlarge the data set. ...
  • Uncertainties in Managing Atmospheric Icing on Power Lines 

    VAHHABI, MOHSEN; Barabadi, Abbas; Barabady, Javad; Nouri, Ali (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Icing affects the infrastructure dramatically, especially in the cold region. Therefore, applying effective ice disaster management (IDM) to provide a systematic approach to dealing with atmospheric icing on power lines is essential. It includes preparedness, response, recovery, learning, risk assessment, and prevention. Integral to this management is the accurate prediction and modeling of icing, ...
  • The Effect of LNG and Diesel Fuel Emissions of Marine Engines on GHG-Reduction Revenue Policies Under Life-Cycle Costing Analysis in Shipping 

    Taghavifar, Hadi; Perera, Lokukaluge Prasad Channa (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    The fuel life cycle involves different phases of extraction/refinery (well to tank: WtT), transport (tank to propeller: TtP), and storage where each of these processes can add a specific amount of emissions to the overall LCCA inventory. During the extraction or operation of machinery on the raw material, the released amount of GHG components is undergoing a change in the generated emissions per ...
