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 ...
Length Related Diurnal Vertical Migration of Cod (Gadus morhua L.), Haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus L.) and Redfish (Sebastes spp.) in the Barents Sea
(The University of Bergen, 2001)
Vertical fish migrations can increase variability in bottom survey data, especially if unknown diurnal length-frequency distribution is different between layers. Surveys, using echo sounder technique to estimate demersal ...
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 ...
On Connections Between Graphs, Codes, Quantum States, and Boolean Functions
(The University of Bergen, 2008-05-28)
We study objects that can be represented as graphs, error-correcting codes, quantum states, or Boolean functions. It is known that self-dual additive codes, which can also be interpreted as quantum states, can be ...
Oribatid mites in a changing world
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-09)
The main scope of this thesis is to illustrate the validity of oribatid mites as tools for palaeoecological reconstructions. Palaeoecology studies the responses of past organisms to past environmental changes. This ...
Modelling of vented dust explosions – empirical foundation and prospects for future validation of CFD codes
(Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), 2008)
Explosion venting is the most frequently used method for mitigating the effects from accidental dust explosions in the process industry. Optimal design of vent systems and credible execution of risk assessments in powder ...
Collective behaviour of herring during spawning
(The University of Bergen, 2007-02-02)
The thesis focuses on the collective behaviour of Norwegian spring spawning herring (NSS-herring; Clupea harengus L.) in the specific ecological context of reproduction. The major part of the work is based on field ...
Anaesthesia of farmed fish with special empasis on atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) and atlantic habibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus)
(The University of Bergen, 2011-03-23)
During the life cycle as farmed animals there are numerous situations where fish are subjected to handling and confinement. Netting, weighing, sorting, vaccination, transport and, at the end, slaughter are common events ...
Effects of nonlinear sound propagation in fisheries research
