FDB employee Jarle Vikør Ekanger has received the title PhD


FDB employee Jarle Vikør Ekanger has passed the public defence and has received the title PhD for his thesis titled
“Investigation of the relationship between water quality variations and cavitation occurence in power plants”. In his work Jarle investigated if and how gas and particles, whose concentration varies naturally, affect risks related to cavitation erosion in hydro turbines commonly used in Norwegian hydro power plants. The thesis, including published articles, will be available for download through the NTNU DiVA portal: http://ntnu.diva-portal.org.
