The topic of the project concerns behavioral modelling of bicyclists in the transport network with particular focus on long-distance and e-bicyclists preferences. Cities all over the world are currently investing in bicycle infrastructure. However, bicyclists are generally under-prioritized or completely overlooked in strategic transport models used in city-level mobility planning, which makes it difficult to prioritize funding for bicycle transport and adapt the network to different types of bicycle users. This project seeks to improve the methodological progress, digital networks and real-life observations relevant for the modelling of bicyclists as this is far from as developed as other transport modes, e.g. cars and public transport.

Responsibilities and tasks
The aim of the project is to develop state-of-the-art behavioral realistic route choice models for bicyclists, which at a detailed level takes into account both network characteristics, individual characteristics and bicycle type as well as temporal variations such as weather and bicyclists stress level (e.g. from congestion).

The project is part of a larger project regarding cyclist’s behavior with focus on long-distance trips and e-bikes including also Israel Institute of Technology (Technion). The candidate will work closely together with the supervisory team and researches from Technion and will be take part in both data collection, preparation of digital road network characteristics, methodological development, modeling preparations such as alternative generation and in developing the final models.

During the project, we will give methodological contributions within digital network preparation, passive and active data collections, model preparation and by formulating a disaggregate theoretically well-explained model for bicyclists behavior. Specifically, the tasks for the candidate and the supervisory team include:

    Preparation of digital network characteristics, primarily GIS data for Tel-Aviv and Copenhagen which will serve as main digital infrastructure for the processing, analysis and modelling of cycling routes Collection of new long-distance and e-cycling data in Tel-Aviv and Copenhagen by using an application developed within the project and post processing of these data. Quantitative data analyses to model the effects of both network specific and individual specific factors on the bicyclist’s route choice with particular focus on individual characteristics and differences between short and long distance trips and conventional and e-bike users. Analyse and model how improved bicycle facilities may change mode choice and travel behavior in general Prepare manuscripts for high level journal publication

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. The degree should be within Transportation Modelling, Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Data Science, Behavioural Studies, or related;

PhD scholarship in Modelling Sustainable Maritime Fuels

The Energy System Analysis group at DTU Management invites highly motivated candidates to apply for the PhD position in Modelling sustainable maritime fuels. This is a 3-year scholarship. The project will build on recent research works and achievements in integrated energy systems and market-based flexibility management at DTU.

Maritime transport emits around 1000 million tons of CO2 annually and is responsible for about 3% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. On 13/4-2018, the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) announced that its member state delegates have agreed on a target to cut the shipping sector’s overall CO2 output by 50% by 2050. On 4/12-2018 Maersk announced their net zero CO2 emission target by 2050. To realize the massive emission reductions targeted, ship propulsion must be based on carbon-neutral fuels. The question is which fuels to go for and to develop engine and storage solutions for. This depends on the potential fuel costs and availability, and the cost of retrofitting or new-building ships, which then can run on the various fuel alternatives. Mathematical modelling of energy systems will contribute to analyzing the current and potential future costs and availability of sustainable fuels.

Responsibilities and tasks
The objective of this PhD project is to analyse and compare future renewable maritime fuels by mathematical modelling of production and consumption. The tasks involve assessing potential availability and costs of sustainable maritime fuels including costs on ships. The PhD student will closely collaborate with industry partners of related projects, and other researchers.

The responsibilities and tasks associated with the position include:

    Active participation in the research environments at DTU; Develop models, algorithms, and methods; Present research results at project meetings, and international conferences/workshops; Publish research results in peer-reviewed scientific journals/conference proceedings; Contribute to teaching.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

The ideal candidate should be holding a Master’s degree in Energy Engineering, Mathematical modelling or related fields. The successful candidate has strong analytical and problem-solving skills, is proactive, self-motivated with critical thinking. Strong programming skills are required, preferably in GAMS and Python. Fluent English speaking and strong paper writing skills are mandatory. You enjoy working in an international environment, solving practical problems, and collaborating with industrial project partners.

PhD scholarship in Data-Driven Prediction of Added Resistance on Ships in Waves

DTU, Department of Mechanical Engineering has an open PhD position focused on data-driven prediction of added wave resistance on ships. The main objective is to develop a tool that combines machine learning algorithms and ship motion dynamics for accurate estimation of the added resistance on ships sailing in seaway. The present research project will be carried out in the maritime group of the Section of Fluid Mechanics, Coastal and Maritime Engineering. The research of the maritime group includes, among other topics, loads on and responses of ships sailing in waves, resistance and propulsion, sea state estimation, and risk and motion prediction; all with the main objective to improve safety and energy efficiency of ship designs and marine operations at sea.

Reducing emissions in shipping is a common goal for all stakeholders involved in the shipping process. This is reflected through, for instance, the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) developed by the International Maritime Organization that urges improvements in energy efficiency not only through design by use of more energy efficient machinery, equipment, and hull details, but also during operations at sea. Notably, speed reduction is an effective way to improve energy efficiency. As a consequence recent trends towards slow steaming have led to increased interest in the prediction of added wave resistance on merchant ships. This increasing interest relates to the fact that the added wave resistance plays a (much) more significant role, relative to the other resistance components, when the vessel’s advance speed is reduced. Reliable prediction, not to mention a proper understanding, of added wave resistance is therefore essential to ensure improved energy efficiency of ships sailing in waves. In the same context, as a result of regulations aimed at reducing installed engine power, the associated risk of designing under-powered ships is of key importance.

There is a large literature focused on theoretical approaches for the prediction of added wave resistance. However, it is generally accepted that added resistance is difficult to [theoretically] predict, regardless what [numerical] approach is taken, especially in short or oblique waves (Bertram, 2016). Furthermore, it is stated that accurate models for added power in waves only make sense if more accurate data for the ambient seaway is also obtained. In this view, it is relevant to study data-driven methods for the prediction of added wave resistance, while, at the same time, using the data for extracting information about the ambient seaway, referring to the on-site wave system.

Responsibilities and tasks
This project should study machine learning algorithms for predicting the added wave resistance on a ship sailing in a seaway; without restrictions on the operational and/or environmental conditions. As a byproduct, the project is expected to develop a data-driven method to estimate the wave system characterizing the seaway. Mathematically, the solutions to the two developments are independent, but, due to the nature of the governing physics, the solutions are physically interrelated. Hence, the solution to the former will complement the latter, and vice versa. Overall, the project thus aims to develop a tool for reliable prediction of added wave resistance; hence, making the project’s expected results important for shipping companies in their drive towards reducing CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.

There is no (single) sensor that can measure the added wave resistance and neither is there one that can measure the seaway. However, from a physical point-of-view, most of the measured signals on a ship, e.g., shaft torque, shaft RPM, rudder angle, speed-through-water, wave-induced motions and accelerations, hull girder flexure, are directly affected by the seaway which in turn affects the added wave resistance. In other words, there exist correlations among the signals, where some of the correlations are theoretically well-known and observable while other correlations are physically evident but without any known theoretical explanations, and yet there may be unknown hidden correlations, since their structure and mutual dependence are not observable from a limited amount of data. Usually, means for the prediction of added wave resistance are purely model-based, as are the procedures for the estimation of the seaway, although the latter procedures for estimating the seaway are combined with measurements. In contrast, this project will have prime focus on signal-based approaches using machine learning algorithms for the analysis of the measurements from some, or all, of the sensors introduced above.

PhD position in materials physics – TEM data acquisition and analysis of clusters and early stage precipitates in Al alloys

About the position

A PhD position is available at the Department of Physics in the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology. The position is financed by the project SumAl (Solute cluster manipulation for optimized properties in Al-Mg-Si based Al alloys) which is a competence project supported by the Norwegian Research council and several aluminium companies.

Information about the SumAl project

Continued weight reductions remain a key to the development of a sustainable and greener transportation sector. Market growth and increased profitability of lightweight Al-solutions can be expected by further improving product properties. Precipitation hardening is the most important strategy for the Al industry to improve performance of both AA6xxx wrought alloys and foundry alloys. However, the Al industry is still unable to fully control and manipulate nucleation and growth of hardening precipitates. SumAl will through a combination of experiments and modelling, develop fundamental understanding of early stage clustering and ordering of solute atoms in aluminium and how these structures relate to the development of hardening precipitates and materials properties. A successful outcome of SumAl will give Norwegian Al actors a cutting-edge tool to develop and design innovative Al-based products with a competitive and superior balance of properties. The overall ambition of SumAl is to establish the necessary competence enabling Al industry to control and manipulate nucleation and development of nanoscale precipitates in Al-Mg-Si alloys through alloy design and thermomechanical processing. The primary objective of SumAl is to establish an in-depth understanding of early stage solute ordering and atomic clustering and how these structures relate to the development of hardening precipitates and materials properties. The project involves recruitment of 1 post-doctoral fellow and 2 PhD students in complementary research areas.

Further information can be obtained from professor Randi Holmestad, Department of Physics, NTNU, Tel. +47 735 93880, E-mail: randi.holmestad@ntnu.no

Main duties and responsibilities

This PhD position is within the field of experimental materials physics and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The PhD will focus on the early stages of precipitate dynamics in aluminum alloys, formation and growth, using TEM methods and advanced data processing. Part of the work will be to correlate these studies with atom probe tomography (APT) which is done by others in the same project. TEM techniques used will among others be high resolution scanning TEM (STEM), STEM tomography, also exploring new and smart acquisition methods. Clusters will be studied ex- and in-situ during heat treatment. The influence of chemical composition and thermomechanical treatments (heating and deformation) will be quantitatively studied. Data processing and image analysis of the experimental data and correlations with APT, will be performed, for instance using the Python package Hyperspy (http://hyperspy.org/). We want to develop this software further, improving workflows and incorporate more machine learning algorithms for studies of precipitates in aluminium alloys. The results will be used to validate and guide the modelling activities in the SumAl project.
