Norwegian researchers make European air traffic more efficient
Many major European airports are unable to expand. This means that aircraft departures, arrivals and surface movements will have to be speeded up. A Norwegian system designed to make all airport movements more efficient is tested in Hamburg, and at Arlanda in Stockholm and Charles de Gaulle in Paris.
Optimal fixture scheduling
With help from SINTEF, the northern Norwegian company Profixio is aiming to become a world leader in fixture scheduling for handball, football and volleyball tournaments.
Preventing air accidents
A Norwegian, satellite-based system aims to ensure that helicopters and light aircraft are prevented from colliding with power lines and other obstacles.
Norwegian IT researchers are the best in the world
International IT researchers have limited contact with the industry, and tend to stay in their offices, working on concepts and studies. Norwegian researchers work closely with companies – and win awards
Mathematics as a means to stop snoring
A flag waving in the wind can illustrate what we call "air-solids interaction". When the wind hits the top of the flagpole the flag dances to the wind's rhythms, often in complex ways. And as we all know: it takes two to tango. The air-flow is also influenced by the flag's movements; the direction and speed of air-flow changes along the flag's surface. This constitutes what is known as a two-way fluid-structure interaction (FSI).
