• Influence of Weight-on-Bit on Percussive Drilling Performance 

    Song, Xianfeng; Aamo, Ole Morten; Kane, Pascal-Alexandre; Detournay, Emmanuel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
    A phenomenological model for percussive drilling systems is proposed in this paper to explain the experimentally demonstrated existence of an optimal weight-on-bit (WOB), for which the rate of penetration (ROP) is maximized. ...
  • Formation and characterization of β-and α-Silicon Carbide produced during Silicon/Ferrosilicon process 

    Jayakumari, Sethulakshmy (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:252, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
    Silicon carbide (SiC) is one of the main intermediate compounds generated during primary silicon (Si) production in submerged arc furnaces. Carbon materials, either biomass-based (charcoal and wood chips) or based on fossil ...
  • Unconventional Biometrics 

    Barbos, Igor Barros (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:262, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
    This thesis is a paper collection that focuses on unconventional methods of biometric recognition. Four new approaches are presented and discussed. The first two introduce and explore the concepts behind transient biometrics. ...
  • Climate-Informed Planning and Design of Urban Water Systems 

    Kristvik, Erle (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:286, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
    Global warming is expected to cause alterations of the climate with potential impacts on urban water systems. As the knowledge base on climate change expands, and regional climate projections become increasingly available ...
  • Naloxone for opioid overdose - Pharmacological aspects and dosing in clinical practice 

    Tylleskär, Ida Karin (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:236, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
    Dødsfall fra opioidoverdoser er et stort folkehelseproblem og utdeling av nesespray med motgiften nalokson var foreslått som et tiltak for å redde liv. I 2012 fantes det ingen godkjente nesesprayer på markedet. Istedenfor ...
