PhD candidate Ailo Aasen was awarded the prize for best poster at the conference, Thermodynamics 2017, in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is impressive, as he started his PhD only eight months ago!
A metal-eating bacteria might be important in the fight against multidrug-resistant bacteria. But how and why does the bacteria produce the antibiotics we need?
I have travelled to Pittsburgh to learn how I can use the simulation results most effectively to reduce the volume and weight of these heat exchangers.
Finding a way to convert the most abundantly available raw material on Earth is the key factor to make bacteria produce sustainable jet fuel. This is my challenge in my PhD research, which makes it very interesting and important.
For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU. Trondheim has now become the EU capital of carbon management research, and we have no qualms about emitting just a few grammes of sparkling CO2 in celebration. Starting in June 2017, more than 50 laboratories in five European countries will be coordinated from Trondheim.
Unexpected results are among the things that makes it so interesting to be a chemist. You can never be completely sure what is the result of a reaction, even though I have seen this specific experiment many times before. Chemistry can become an art form. You can catch a skyline in a small glass.
There are a number of available low-carbon technologies to generate electricity. But are they really better than fossil fuels and nuclear power?
Many users choose a glass design after testing 30 samples. Possibly worrying fact: you may need thousands of tests to get statistically trustworthy results.
Dynamic positioning (DP) of ships has a 55 years industrial history, and in 2015 it was awarded by the readers of “Teknisk Ukeblad” as the most significant engineering achievement in Norway after World War 2. The origin of this industrial adventure in Norway is from NTNU. In the DP-Lab the
