      The building sector has a key role to play in implementing the EU energy efficiency objectives. Around 40% of the energy consumption and a third of CO2 emissions comes from buildings. With the adoption of Nearly Zero Energy ...
    • Upgrading of Hydropower Plants to Pumped Storage Plants: Tunnel System Hydraulics 

      Pitorac, Livia Ioana (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2021:352, Doctoral thesis, 2021)
      Energy storage is needed to enable the transition from fossil to renewable electrical energy sources. As wind and solar power are unregulated and volatile, energy storage is necessary. Pumped hydro can deliver both short- ...
    • Upgrading of Roskrepp hydropower plant to a pumped storage plant: Necessary reconstruction of the surge tank. 

      Leroquais, Anne (Master thesis, 2018)
      The scope of this thesis is to build a 1D numerical model of a hydraulic powerplant, transform it to simulate the upgrade of the powerplant into a pumped storage system, establish the issues that would emerge from it in ...
    • Upstream-Cylinder and Downstream-Cylinder Influence on the Hydrodynamics of a Four-Cylinder Group 

      Kamath, Arun; Bihs, Hans; Alagan Chella, Mayilvahanan; Arntsen, Øivind Asgeir (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The wave interaction at low Keulegan-Carpenter numbers with a group of four large cylinders arranged in the form of a square with one diagonal along the direction of wave propagation is studied with a focus on the ...
    • Urban drainage models for green areas: Structural differences and their effects on simulated runoff 

      Broekhuizen, Ico; Muthanna, Tone Merete; Leonhardt, Gunther; Viklander, Maria (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Mathematical stormwater models are often used as tools for planning and analysing urban drainage systems. However, the inherent uncertainties of the models must be properly understood in order to make optimal use of them. ...
    • Urban Facilities Management in Smart Cities 

      Lindkvist, Carmel Margaret; Temeljotov Salaj, Alenka; Collins, Dave; Bjørberg, Svein; Haugen, Tore (Book, 2019)
      Facilities managers have the skills to work within a top down strategic level and link to a bottom-up operational levelwithin an organization. This type of approach to managing services and facilities is lacking within a ...
    • Urban Facility Management 

      Temeljotov Salaj, Alenka; Lindkvist, Carmel Margaret (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      This paper aims to illustrate where facility management (FM) is having an impact on the urban environment and what other work needs to be done to easier facilitate achievement of the sustainable development goals (SDGs). ...
    • Urban freight transport data - Identification of potential and implications of collection and analysis of carrier data 

      Johanne Lægran (Master thesis, 2021)
      Prognoser peker på stor vekst i godstransporten. Trender som urbanisering, økt netthandel og hjemlevering fører til mer kamp om plassen i byene og endring i godstransporten og varestrømmene. Samtidig skal veksten i ...
