The electrical properties of a widely used stress control tube for medium voltage heat-shrink joints are examined in this master thesis by using non-destructive laboratory methods. They were determined by use of time domain dielectric response test while changing the DC electric field, temperature and level of humidity.

In order to...

Coda Wave Interferometry analysis is studied for rocks subjected to brittle deformation which is induced by an Uniaxial Compressive Strength testing machine. Ultrasonic pulses, 1 MHz and 2.25MHz, are sent through rock samples and recorded throughout the loading up-to failure. A novel method is proposed, the rolling cross correlation, which can...

This research aims at modeling the trajectory followed by the Galileo spacecraft during a variety of flybys about the Galilean moons. The chosen flybys have good Earth’s elevation angles and either low or high closest-approach altitudes, so that the comparison of the two can give relevant insight into the accuracy of the corresponding...
