    • Wage Bargaining and Employer Objectives 

      Falch, Torberg (Working Paper Series, 1503-299X; 2002:24, Research report, 2002)
      This paper compares union wage bargaining outcomes across different types of employers. Five different employer objectives are discussed; profit–, welfare– and output maximization, and two specifications of a Leviathan. ...
    • Wage Bargaining and Monopsony 

      Falch, Torberg; Strøm, Bjarne (Working Paper Series, 1503-299X; 2004:8, Research report, 2004)
      This paper identifies three possible outcomes of higher relative firm bargaining power in a unionized firm facing an upward sloping labor supply curve. The conventional regime with reduced wage and higher employment ...
    • Wage Bargaining and Political Strength in the Public Sector 

      Falch, Torberg; Strøm, Bjarne (Working Paper Series, 1503-299X; 2003:6, Research report, 2003)
      This paper analysis the link between political strength and public sector wages using a unique matched individual-employer data set for Norwegian local governments during the period 1990-1998. The results indicate that ...
    • Wage Formation, Regional Migration and Local Labour Market Tightness 

      Carlsen, Fredrik; Johansen, Kåre; Røed, Knut (Working Paper Series, 1503-299X; 2003:3, Research report, 2003)
      Economic theory predicts that local labour market tightness affects local wage setting as well as individuals' migration decisions. But how should we measure local labour market tightness? In this paper we show that the ...
    • Wages and Subjective Assessments of Regional Labour Market Pressure 

      Carlsen, Fredrik; Johansen, Kåre (Working Paper Series, 1503-299X; 2002:20, Research report, 2002)
      We utilise a rich set of regional labour market variables to explain regional variation in Norwegian manufacturing wages. In particular, regional indicators of labour market pressure are computed from survey data in which ...
    • Wahrnehmung, Substanz und Kausalität bei Kant 

      Wyller, Truls Egil (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2001)
      ‚Erfahrung ist eine verstandene Wahrnehmung‘ Die hier vorgeschlagene Kant-Interpretation stellt eine nicht-repräsentationalistische Version seiner Theorie der raumzeitlichen Erkenntnis dar. So befindet sie sich nicht ...
    • Waiting Areas of Airports as Restorative Environments for Travelers 

      Tian, Lai (Master thesis, 2012)
      The main goal of the present study is to investigate if physical attributes in waiting areas of airports can influence their perceived restorativeness for travelers. This study employed a pre-survey to select the physical ...
    • Waiting Time Strategy for Public Transport Passengers 

      Nygaard, Magnus Frestad (Master thesis, 2016)
      Large population growth in cities and environmental concerns across the world puts increasingly higher demands on public passenger transport. In several European cities, including the nine largest urban areas in Norway ...
    • Wake behind a horizontal-axis wind turbine 

      Nygard, Øyvind Vik (Master thesis, 2011)
      In this paper theory on cylinder and wind turbine wakes have been studied, and experimental work on the wake behind a wind turbine have been carried out in the Fluids engineering laboratory at NTNU.The objective of this ...
    • Wake behind a wind turbine operating in yaw 

      Andresen, Birgitte (Master thesis, 2013)
      The object of this study is primarily to understand the behavior of the wake behind a yawed turbine, and if yaw can be a method for actively controlling the direction of the wake, and thereby controlling the power output ...
    • Wake dynamics of flow past tapered bluff bodies 

      Narasimhamurthy, Vagesh D (Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2008:260, Doctoral thesis, 2008)
    • Wake flow behind a curved cylinder 

      Knudsen, Tor Huse (Master thesis, 2014)
      This thesis reports the result of an experiment measuring the wake flow behind a curved circular cylinder at Re=3900 in water. The measurement technique used was Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The cylinder is a convex ...
    • Wake Measurements Behind An Array Of Two Model Wind Turbines 

      Bartl, Jan (Master thesis, 2011)
      During the last decades the exploitation of energy from the wind has become one of the most promising renewable energy technologies. The main strive in today s development of wind turbines is to increase the efficiency of ...
    • Wake Modelling using an actuator disk model in openFOAM 

      Nodeland, Anne Mette I (Master thesis, 2013)
      Two "Blind tests" have been performed at NTNU. Researchers were asked to send in results from a simulation of a model turbine in a wind tunnel to compare the different results with the measured values. There was a large ...
    • Wake Shielding Model Effect on Riser Dynamic Response 

      Fu, Ping; Leira, Bernt Johan; Myrhaug, Dag (Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The paper provides a method to estimate the clearance between two flexible risers in tandem arrangement by taking into account the wake interference when subjected to a combined current plus waves flow. The wake interference ...
    • ‘Walking a graph’ – primary school students’ experimental session on functions and graphs
