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!
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.
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
Friction is important in everyday life, but because it is everywhere we often take it completely for granted. Every time you stand still, walk, or hold an object, friction helps you to control movements. At the same time, the friction of moving parts in machines, and the associated wear, costs modern societies an enormous amount of energy and materials.
The overall goal of the System Simulation course is to give the students exercise in model, program, simulate and analyze dynamical problems where multiple engineering fields are present.
Every year at IPM the course TMM4150 Machine design and Mechatronics is taught. It is a basic introduction to mechatronic methodology, censor technology, actuators, Arduino, etc.; basically, the foundation of any maker who wants to build more functional, mechanical or even “smart” prototypes.
History was made on 5 October when the world got its new climate agreement. With enough countries signing up to the agreement, it was ratified and is therefore binding. On this date, President Obama stated: “History may well judge it as a turning point for the planet”. With the new
When your department has 67 PhD candidates, it can be a challenge to meet everybody and learn about their research. This is one of the many reasons why a committee of PhD candidates at the Department of Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics (IPT) organize a “PhD Seminar” every semester. The
