Replacing fossil fuel power with variable wind and solar power means that more energy storage and power transmission capabilities are necessary. Despite this, we find large climate benefits and a range of other pollution benefits of switching to renewables.
After finishing my master degree the spring 2014 in Materials Science and Technology I decided to devote three more years at NTNU as a PhD candidate at the Department of Engineering Design and Materials (IPM). Initially, the thought of continuing with a PhD, had been going through my head sometimes,
My first semester as an Assistant Professor of Innovation at NTNU’s Department of Engineering Design & Material (IPM) has exceeded all of my expectations. Coming from a management and entrepreneurship background, and having taught primarily at business schools, I didn’t really know what to expect. Would I be the only
This blog post describes how to create trust between the future fully autonomous car and its user by including all the human sensory systems in the design of the human-car interaction. As a part of my PhD study I’m attending the spectacular Design Innovation course, ME310 at the D.School at
As it has become more difficult to find new reservoirs for oil and gas production, the petroleum industry has shifted focus to researching ways to extract more hydrocarbons out of reservoirs already in production. At NTNU, research is underway to investigate the potential of using nanofluids as a new agent
At NTNU we help surgeons and offshore drillers at the same time. How? When you have a corrosive environment like in the ocean or right inside your body and you want to have a component working under cyclic loading and wear, component design and material selection can be very challenging.
Let me take you back to high school chemistry. Do you remember this? It probably brings back bad memories of crushed dreams upon the realization that chemistry wasn’t about making goo and blowing stuff up and was instead about balancing impossible equations, terrifying exams and dull lab experiments. Now back
