Flame Propagation in Dust Clouds: Challenges for Model Validation
Modelling of industrial dust explosions poses a formidable challenge to researchers and safety engineers. Whereas current best practice with respect to modelling the consequences of vapour cloud explosions in the petroleum ...
Effects of nonlinear sound propagation in fisheries research
(The University of Bergen, 2007-03-30)
Reversible Jump Markov Chain Monte Carlo: Some Theory and Applications
(The University of Bergen, 2014-03-10)
The history of MCMC, theories of Bayesian thinking and model choice, the Accept- Reject-algorithm, Markov chains, the Metropolis- Hastings-algorithm and the reversible jump MCMC are explained. Then the reversible ...
Simulation of prompt gamma production in particle therapy and beam trajectory imaging
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
In cancer oncology, using of Mega electron Volt (MeV) bremsstrahlung photons has been clinically practised on cancer patients since photons can deliver a significant dose to tumour volumes when projected into the body in ...
Dietary inclusion of peptides and the effect on the regional expression of the oligo-peptide transporter PepT1 (Slc15a1) in the intestine of juvenile Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua)
(The University of Bergen, 2008)
PepT1 (Peptide Transporter 1, SLC15A1) is a proton-coupled peptide transporter responsible for uptake of short peptides and peptide-like drugs from the intestinal lumen into enterocytes. A PepT1-type transporter has ...
Combustion of Gas in Closed, Interconnected Vessels: Pressure Piling
(The University of Bergen, 2004)
This thesis is the documentation of a study of gas explosions in closed, interconnected vessels. Explosions within such vessels is strongly affected by the characteristics of the geometry, and can, under given conditions, ...
Possibilities, limitations, and the way ahead for dust explosion modelling
(Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), 2006)
The purpose of the present paper is threefold. First, a brief review of modelling, main results, and preliminary conclusions from the DESC project are presented; current capabilities and limitations of the DESC code are ...
North Atlantic multidecadal variability in coupled climate models - Mechanisms and responses
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-06)
Global atmosphere-ocean general circulation models have been used to investigate mechanisms controlling the North Atlantic low-frequency variability, with the focus on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, the ...
Predation by carabid beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) on the invasive Iberian slug Arion lusitanicus
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-21)
Predator-prey and host-parasite interactions are essential in understanding the population dynamics of any species, including pest species. In fact, integrated pest management that incorporates biological control requires ...
