The results point towards a disruption in current working practices for both ship and shore operators, and an uncertainty about the overall impact of low-level automation on operator behaviour. Using a sociotechnical systems approach, gaps have been identified related to new technology testing and implementation. <br /><br />These gaps relate to the overall preparedness of the shipping industry to manage the evolution towards smarter ships. The findings discussed in this licentiate aim to promote further discussions about a quickly evolving industry concerning automation integration in shipping and the potential impact on human performance in safety critical operations.<br /> validated catalytic reactor models<p>M Gamma, conference room, Hörsalsvägen 7A, M-huset</p><p>​Magnus Walander will hold his licentiate seminar titled &quot;Towards validated catalytic reactor models&quot;.</p>​<br /><strong>Moderator:</strong> Ronny Andersson<br /><br /><strong>Examiner:</strong> Michael Oevermann–-Highlights-and-Challenges.aspx Simulation of Compressible Flows – Highlights and Challenges<p>EA, lecture hall, Hörsalsvägen 11, EDIT trappa C, D och H</p><p>​Welcome to the inaugural lecture of Niklas Andersson.</p>​<br /><strong>Numerical Simulation of Compressible Flows – Highlights and Challenges<br /></strong>Aeroacoustics is a research area that deals with sound generation and propagation in fluid flows. Flow-induced sound is most often undesirable in engineering applications and understanding the relation between flow structures and sound generation is a key factor to success when designing noise cancelation concepts. This is one of the topics that will be addressed in the lecture.<br /><br /><b>About Niklas Andersson</b><br /><span></span>Niklas Andersson is associate professor at the division of Fluid Mechanics. His academic background is in Mechanical Engineering (M.Sc., Chalmers) and Thermo and Fluid Dynamics (Ph.D., Chalmers). Niklas received his Ph.D. in 2005 and between 2005 and 2011 he worked as an aerodynamics engineer at GKN Aerospace. In 2011, Niklas was employed as a researcher at the division of Fluid Dynamics and he was appointed associate professor 2016. The main focus of his research activities is on large-scale simulations of compressible flows and numerical methods for prediction of flow-induced sound.<br /> in Fault Tolerant Chassis Systems for Automated Driving<p>MC, lecture hall, Hörsalsvägen 5, Gamla M-huset</p><p>​Welcome to Matthijs Inaugural lecture.</p>​<br /><strong>Trends in Fault Tolerant Chassis Systems for Automated Driving</strong><br /><div><strong><br /></strong></div> <div>Abstract: <br />Automated driving has attracted considerable interest from industry and the general public. Automated driving on public roads, however, will require a redesign of the vehicle to meet new requirements on functional safety and fault tolerance. This presentation will focus on trends in fault tolerant steering and braking systems. Also simulation tools and methods are discussed. <br /><br />About: <br />Matthijs Klomp has over twenty years of experience in automotive engineering and works currently as the solution architect for chassis &amp; climate at Volvo Cars. At Chalmers he works as adjunct associate professor in computational vehicle dynamics. He is also the convenor for the ISO work group for vehicle dynamics of passenger cars.<br /></div> an Improved Safety Benefit Assessment for Heavy Trucks - Combining different data sources in a framework and target scenario identification<p>Alfa, lecture hall, Hörselgången 4, Saga</p><p>​Ron Marc Schindler will hold his Licentiate seminar.</p>​<br /><strong>Towards an Improved Safety Benefit Assessment for Heavy Trucks - Combining different data sources in a framework and target scenario identification<br /></strong><br /><b>Moderator</b>: Dr. Jesper Sandin, VTI <br /><br /><span style="font-weight:700">Examiner</span>: Bitr.

Space research has also contributed to better data, helping climate scientists to detect and understand large-scale environmental changes.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Sweden is a prominent space nation, much thanks to our space industry, which is largely located in Western Sweden. Chalmers is an important partner, with a breadth of space research in various disciplines, not least production where, for example, additive manufacturing is improved and adapted for space applications.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>How to manufacture for space? Why is research in and for space interesting? Can you manufacture products on Mars? And how does Chalmers contribute to space technology and research?
