    • Sediments in Angostura Hydropower Reservoir 

      Kjærås, Halvor (Master thesis, 2012)
      Reservoirs in areas with a high sediment yield will without mitigation sooner or later be filled up with sediments, reducing the volume available for regulation for electric generation. Flushing of sediments is a management ...
    • Three-dimensional numerical modeling of water flow in a rock-blasted tunnel 

      Vold, Mari (Master thesis, 2017)
      Climate change leads to more intense precipitation in Norway. NVE requires all bypass tunnels have sufficient capacity for bypassing flood water. The hydro-power industry needs a method for establishing tunnel capacity, ...
