  1. 1. Environmental Modelling : Learning from Uncertainty

    Author : John M. Juston; Per-Erik Jansson; Jens Christian Refsgaard; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Models; data; error; uncertainty; hydrology; soil carbon; wetlands; phosphorus;

    Abstract : Environmental models are important tools; however uncertainty is pervasive in the modeling process.   Current research has shown that under­standing and representing these uncertainties is critical when decisions are expected to be made from the modeling results. READ MORE

  2. 2. LES stochastic modelling of cavitation with its applications in OpenFOAM

    Author : Boxiong Chen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rayleigh-Plesset Equation; Cavitation; Modelling; Simulation; Eulerian Stochastic Field Method; OpenFOAM; Homogeneous Equilibrium Model;

    Abstract : Cavitation is a vaporization process that commonly happens in high-pressure injector nozzles nowadays. It has been shown by previous studies that cavitation has a significant influence on the subsequent atomization process, the quality of which would in turn heavily affect the process of combustion.

  3. 3. Groundwater Recharge in Crystalline Bedrock : Processes, Estimation, and Modelling

    Author : Niclas Bockgård; Sven Halldin; Allan Rodhe; Auli Niemi; Lars O. Ericsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; groundwater recharge; bedrock; crystalline rocks; tracers; CFC; surface loading; loading efficiency; barometric effect; heterogeneity; stochastic modelling; Hydrologi; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : Kunskap om grundvattenbildningen är nödvändig för att man ska kunna förutsäga konsekvenserna av grundvattenuttag och underjordsbyggande. Grundvattenbildningen i berggrunden är dock svår att uppskatta. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling Sexual Interactions : Sexual behaviour and the spread of sexually transmitted infections on dynamic networks

    Author : Disa Hansson; Tom Britton; Fredrik Liljeros; KaYin Leung; Janneke Heijne; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical modelling; Sexually transmitted infections; Egocentric network analysis; Dynamic networks; Sexual behaviour; HIV; Statistical inference; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : In this thesis we develop statistical and mathematical models to study different factors of relevance for the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Two special interest groups for STI interventions are considered: sexually active youths and men who have sex with men (MSM). READ MORE

  5. 5. Stochastic modelling in disability insurance

    Author : Björn Löfdahl; Boualem Djehiche; Mogens Steffensen; KTH; []

    Abstract : This thesis consists of two papers related to the stochastic modellingof disability insurance. In the first paper, we propose a stochastic semi-Markovian framework for disability modelling in a multi-period discrete-time setting. READ MORE
