A Modular Method for High- Level Service Specification and Component Design Derivation
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:259, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
This thesis addresses the problem of specifying the behaviour of distributed reactive systems in such a way that the component behaviours can be derived automatically. This automation demands specifications to be complete ...

(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:253, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Building design strategy for cold climate using passive design and renewable technologies
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:168, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
This thesis presents an analysis of various measures and technologies leading to establishing a strategy to achieve energy efficiency in buildings, particularly in the context of Kazakhstan. The developed strategies can ...
Aspects of design of reinforced concrete structures using nonlinear finite element analyses
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:149, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Non-linear finite element analyses (NLFEA) of reinforced concrete structures have gained much attention in the structural engineering community during the last decade, and the practising engineer is now equipped with an ...
Sustainable building – From role model projects to industrial transformation
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:270, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Background and purpose Improving energy efficiency and sustainability is a challenge for the construction industry. The United Nation’s environment programme (UNEP) and the EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive ...
Artificial Development and Evolution using Common Developmental Genomes
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:251, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Developmental biology seeks to understand how organisms are constructed. Development is a set of very complex processes involving a coded program as the organisms’ genome. This genome describes how to build the organism, ...
Fitness and Health in Older Adults: High Cardiorespiratory Fitness as a Mediator of the Cardiovascular Risk Associated with Sedentariness and Adiposity
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:283, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is a strong and independent predictor of cardiovascular health, and currently the only known major risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) that is not routinely assessed in clinical ...
Stability Analysis of High Voltage Hybrid AC/DC Power Systems
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU;2017:256, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Interest in large-scale integration of power from renewable energy sources (RES) has grown in the last decade as a result of energy policies adopted by governments in an effort to reduce CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions. ...
Molecular subtypes of breast cancer: incidence and prognosis
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:276, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Forekomsten av brystkreft har over flere tiår økt i den vestlige verden, og i Norge har det vært en dobling av insidensen siden Kreftregisteret startet sin overvåkning av antall krefttilfeller i Norge i 1952. I Norge har ...
Potential Adhesion Prevention Strategies: Three studies on the effectiveness of different potential adhesion prevention strategies regarding reduction of postoperative peritoneal adhesion formation.
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:268, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
