  1. 1. INVESTIGATING THE VIABILITY OF PERFORMING DRIVING EXAMINATIONS IN A SIMULATED ENVIRONMENT The effect of mere presence and evaluation apprehension on driving performance

    University essay from Institutionen för tillämpad informationsteknologi

    Author : Oskar Ekström; Joel Ruthberg; Erik Van Der Maarel; [2019-08-07]
    Keywords : Driving Simulation; Driver Assessment; Swedish Driver Test; Social Facilitation; Social Impairment; Mere Presence; Evaluation Apprehension;

    Abstract : Denna rapport syftar till att ge insikter om hur simulatorer kan användas för att bedömaförarkompetens. För att simulatorer ska utgöra ett lämpligt alternativ till bedömningar på vägär det nödvändigt att förstå alla meningsfulla skillnader. En sådan skillnad kan utgöras av densociala närvaron av en examinator. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experiments on optimal maintenance operations with emphasis on end-of-contract constraints

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för matematiska vetenskaper

    Author : Sebastian Ahlman; Philip Nilsson; Tanha Kamran; [2019-06-18]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : To minimize the unnecessary costs that arise when machines or other objects fail, perhapsneeding to be replaced during less than ideal occasions through what is knownas reactive maintenance, a more active maintenance policy through which objects arecontinuously maintained in a preventative manner based on life expectancy or from acost-perspective, is preferred. Mathematical models can be advantageous to utilize whenscheduling these maintenance occasion. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  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. Study on future storm surge around Suo-nada Sea

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Ayano Sonoda; [2019]
    Keywords : storm surge; Suo-nada Sea; numerical simulation; FVCOM; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Japan lies on an area frequently hit by typhoons while city functions are clustered along the flat coastal areas, hence Japan has experienced lots of storm surge disasters up to the present. Coastal areas along the Suo-nada Sea also have the vulnerability against storm surge and in the past Typhoon 18 in 1999, Typhoon 16 and 18 in 2004 made remarkable damages in the areas. READ MORE
