Hard Rock Tunnel Boring: Performance Predictions and Cutter Life Assessments
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2016:350, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
The use of hard rock tunnel boring machines (TBMs) has become widely and generally used with success but in too many cases, due to unanticipated situations and/or inappropriate assessments, with catastrophic consequences. ...
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 ...
Postural strategy, lumbar muscle activation and variation related to prolonged standing and sitting in chronic low back pain

EELS and STEM studies of perovskite oxide heterostructures
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2016:361, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Perovskite oxide heterostructures have attracted much research interest due to a strong coupling between the local crystal structure and the functional properties. Of special interest are the interfaces of thin film systems, ...
Effects of sediment erosion in guide vanes of Francis turbines
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2016:260, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Erosive wear of turbine components has been a major operational challenge for the runoff-river hydropower plants across the basins of Himalaya in Asia. The hard mineral particles, which are carried by rivers reach the ...
A New Extended Corresponding States Equation of State for Modelling CO2-Water Thermodynamics - A Compromise for CFD
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:264, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
This PhD work is part of the CO2 Dynamics project in collaboration with Sintef Energy. We investigated the importance of accurate modelling of CO2 thermodynamic properties for process design. The study was conducted for ...
