  1. 1. Monte Carlo Simulations of Bowing Effects Using Realistic Fuel Data in Nuclear Fuel Assemblies

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Marcus Westlund; [2019]
    Keywords : bowing effects; fuel assembly perturbations; nuclear; serpent; monte carlo;

    Abstract : Deformations of nuclear fuel assemblies have been observed in nuclear power plants since the mid-90s. Such deformations are generally called bowing effects. READ MORE

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Elektricitetslära; Uppsala universitet/Elektricitetslära

    Author : Vincent Sollie; Johannes Malmström; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to confirm a proof of concept on how to get a robot to pick up a plastic bag containing 3500 plastic caps, cut it open and pour the content, all within a restricted Clean room. The work was executed in an agile way with several ongoing iterative processes in parallel. READ MORE

  3. 3. Portfolio Optimization Using the Atkinson Index

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Nils Billgert; [2019]
    Keywords : atkinson index; performance measure; portfolio optimization; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : Traditional mean-variance optimization of portfolios has received much criticism due to its inability to account for higher order moments and non-quadratic utility. In this thesis, the topic of portfolio optimization is studied using the Atkinson index with CRRA utility. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wind Forecasts Using Large Eddy Simulations for Stratospheric Balloon Applications

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Ludvig Sjöberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Weather Research and Forecasting Model; Large Eddy Simulation; Microscale Meteorology;

    Abstract : The launch of large stratospheric balloons is highly dependant on the meteorological conditions at ground level, including wind speed. The balloon launch base Esrange Space Center in northern Sweden currently uses forecasts delivered through the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute to predict opportunities for balloon launches.

  5. 5. A Utility Approach: Strategy Analysis and Optimization

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Magnús Ólafur Sigurdsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Utility optimization; Portfolio analysis; Dynamic programming; Bellman equation.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Utility theory and Monte Carlo simulations are used to calculate optimal allocation for long term as well as, risk averse investors with a portfolio consisting of one risky asset and one risk-free bank account. The problems solved in this thesis are divided into two types, static and dynamic. READ MORE
