The design of the ordinary bicycle has barely changed since the end of the 19th century. Until then it evolved to a well ridable machine with no need for further drastic modifications. However, around 2011 it was shown that, just like an ordinary bicycle, strange appearing designs could also be stable. One of these designs was a bicycle that...

Topology optimization is the process of optimizing both the material layout and the connectivity inside a design domain. The first paper on topology optimization dates back to 1904, when the Australian inventor Michell derived optimality criteria for minimum weight truss structures. In 1988 Bendsøe and Kikuchi published the pioneering paper ...

The highway Ruta Nacional 90 (between Barranquilla and Santa Marta) is heavily endangered by progressive coastal erosion. Principally, this has a natural cause since the shifting mouth of the Magdalena River led to an insufficient supply of sediment. However, this threat has been foreseen for decades without it leading to adequate planning or...

Broadband turbulent noise can lead to fluid-acoustic and fluid-structure interaction and ultimately to mechanical failure of pipe systems. In HVAC (Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning) systems broadband turbulent noise can radiate outwards where it is a nuisance or even harmful to people. A fast and simple approach for investigating...

Wire rope is used in numerous applications such as elevators, power lines, suspension bridges, ships and the mooring of offshore structures. In many of these applications wire rope needs to be bent. Currently the Norwegian certification instance Det Norske Veritas (DNV) prescribes a capacity reduction factor for bending wire rope. It is unclear...

In this thesis a problem of determining the optimal pacing strategy to minimize travel time is considered. The problem is restricted to a straight race track with constant slope and rolling resistance, and no headwind. It is expressed as an optimal control problem that can be solved using Pontryagin's Maximum Principle. The control variable is...

Fuel efficiency is an important factor for the shipping industry both regarding new build vessels and existing vessels. A method to reduce the fuel consumption of existing vessels operating in off design conditions is to trim a vessel in the most optimum trim condition. The current approach to determine the most efficient trim condition is to...

When a web service or application evolves, its database schema --- tables, constraints, and indices --- often need to evolve along with it. Depending on the database, some of these changes require a full table lock, preventing the service from accessing the tables under change. To deal with this, web services are typically taken offline...
