Using physics to speed up reservoir simulation

By Øystein Klemetsdal, PhD student at NTNU and SINTEF Digital, and Olav Møyner, Postdoc at NTNU and SINTEF Digital. Reservoir simulation can in broad terms be described as simulation of fluids flowing in porous rock formations underground. Applications range from simulating the flow of oil and gas in petroleum reservoirs to determine optimal production strategies, […]

1st Danish-Norwegian Study Group with Industry

European Study Group with Industry (ESGI) is Europe’s leading workshop bringing together mathematicians and industrial companies. These week-long workshops have been held annually since 1968 and were previously known as the Oxford Study Groups with Industry, where they attracted leading mathematicians to work on industrial problems. The first ESGI in Norway was organized by mathematicians […]

IMF/Ethiopia-Project: The Hawassa Math&Stat Conference 2019

Hawassa University, Ethiopia and the Department of Mathematical Sciences at NTNU (IMF) have during the last decade cooperated in establishing MSc- and Phd-Programmes in Math&Stat in Ethiopia. The initiative is funded by Norad – and the Project will end in 2019. The completion of the Project is celebrated with: The Hawassa Math&Stat Conference 2019 – […]

Future PhD education at NTNU

  NTNU has initiated a process for reforming and all aspects of PhD education in mathematics and ICT. The main principle behind this process is the qualification framework principle. Where the content of the PhD training is determined starting from a set of professional qualities of the graduated doctoral researcher. This process is based on recommendations […]

One million electric vehicles in Poland – insights from an agent-based model

In agent-based modeling (ABM), a (usually) complex system is modeled as a collection of autonomous entities called agents. Agents interact with each other and their environment, asses their situation and make decisions based on some given set of rules. Those decisions may then trigger different actions of the entities. In the last decades, ABM has […]

Local damage detection related to a gearbox operating in industrial conditions

The problem of local damage detection is widely discussed in the literature. There are many methods which can be applied, however there is still a need for new techniques addressing specific diagnostic issues. In particular, the case of complex multiple-component vibration signal is a challenging problem. In this case we focus on such a problem […]
