  • Hvannberg, Ebba Thora; Law, Effie L.-C.; Halldórsdóttir, Gyða (Informa UK Limited, 2018-03-29)
    Consolidating usability problems (UPs) from problem lists from several users can be a cognitively demanding task for evaluators. It has been suggested that collaboration between evaluators can help this process. In an attempt to learn how evaluators ...

    The integrated forest ecosystem model ForSAFE-Veg was used to simulate soil processes and understory vegetation composition at three—sugar maple, beech, yellow birch—hardwood forest sites in the Northeastern United States (one at Hubbard Brook, NH, and ...
  • Vilbergsdóttir, Sigurbjörg Gróa; Hvannberg, Ebba Thora; Law, Effie Lai-Chong (Elsevier BV, 2014-01)
    The aim of this study was to evaluate the Classification of Usability Problems (CUP) scheme. The goal of CUP is to classify usability problems further to give user interface developers better feedback to improve their understanding of usability problems, ...
  • Safarian, Sahar; Unnthorsson, Runar (MDPI AG, 2018-06-07)
    This paper describes the development of a model to comprehensively assess the sustainability impacts of producing lignocellulosic bioethanol from various types of municipal organic wastes (MOWs) in Iceland: paper and paperboard, timber and wood and ...
  • Spagnol, Simone; Hoffmann, Rebekka; Herrera Martínez, Marcelo; Unnthorsson, Runar (Elsevier BV, 2018-07)
    Translating visual representations of real environments into auditory feedback is one of the key challenges in the design of an electronic travel aid for visually impaired persons. Although the solutions currently available in the literature can lead ...
  • Yi, Zhiqian; Su, Yixi; Xu, Maonian; Bergmann, Andreas; Ingþórsson, Sævar; Rolfsson, Óttar; Salehi-Ashtiani, Kourosh; Brynjolfsson, Sigurdur; Fu, Weiqi (MDPI AG, 2018-08-04)
    Diatoms are a major group of unicellular algae that are rich in lipids and carotenoids. However, sustained research efforts are needed to improve the strain performance for high product yields towards commercialization. In this study, we generated a ...

    Background: Diatoms, which can accumulate large amounts of carotenoids, are a major group of microalgae and the dominant primary producer in marine environments. Phaeodactylum tricornutum, a model diatom species, acquires little silicon for its growth ...
  • Spagnol, Simone; Wersényi, György; Bujacz, Michał; Bălan, Oana; Herrera Martínez, Marcelo; Moldoveanu, Alin; Unnthorsson, Runar (Hindawi Limited, 2018)
    Electronic travel aids (ETAs) have been in focus since technology allowed designing relatively small, light, and mobile devices for assisting the visually impaired. Since visually impaired persons rely on spatial audio cues as their primary sense of ...
  • Kristjansson, Arni; Moldoveanu, Alin; Jóhannesson, Ómar I.; Bălan, Oana; Spagnol, Simone; Valgeirsdóttir, Vigdís Vala; Unnthorsson, Runar (IOS Press, 2016-09-21)
    An exciting possibility for compensating for loss of sensory function is to augment deficient senses by conveying missing information through an intact sense. Here we present an overview of techniques that have been developed for sensory substitution ...
  • Hyytia, Esa; Righter, Rhonda; Bilenne, Olivier; Wu, Xiaohu (Elsevier BV, 2017-09)
    We study the M/D/1 queue when jobs have firm deadlines for waiting (or sojourn) time. If a deadline is not met, a job-specific deadline violation cost is incurred. We derive explicit value functions for this M/D/1 queue that enable the development of ...
  • Safarian, Sahar; Unnthorsson, Runar; Richter, Christiaan (Taiwan Association for Aerosol Research, 2020-05)
    In order to decrease spreading of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) over the world, the activity of many industries has declined, several flights were cancelled and so many people staying home that made drop in fuel consumption in road transport. ...
  • Spagnol, Simone; Hoffmann, Rebekka; Kristjansson, Arni; Avanzini, Federico (Acoustical Society of America (ASA), 2017-04)
    Stimulus order has been reported to affect perceived loudness. This letter investigates how temporal order affects distance discrimination of receding and approaching pairs of sound sources rendered binaurally in the anechoic near-field. Individual ...
  • Shimomura, Yayoi; Hvannberg, Ebba Thora; Hafsteinsson, Hjálmtýr (Springer Nature, 2012-03-17)
    Research has been conducted on how to aid blind peoples’ perceptions and cognition of scientific data and, specifically, on how to strengthen their background in mathematics as a means of accomplishing this goal. In search of alternate modes to vision, ...
  • Atlason, Reynir Smari; Oddsson, Gudmundur V.; Unnthorsson, Runar (Springer Nature, 2017-09-07)
    Heat pumps use the temperature difference between inside and outside areas to modify a refrigerant, either for heating or cooling. Doing so can lower the need for external heating energy for a household to some extent. The eventual impact depends on ...
  • Hvannberg, Ebba Thora (Springer Nature, 2013-11-13)
    With the advances in information technology and its increasing impact on humans and society, there has been an expanding need to spread knowledge from domain to domain. This need is not least in the area of human–computer interaction, which includes a ...
  • Helgadottir, Asdis; Ng, Yen Ting; Min, Chohong; Gibou, Frédéric (Elsevier BV, 2015-10)
    We consider the Poisson equation with mixed Dirichlet, Neumann and Robin boundary conditions on irregular domains. We describe a straightforward and efficient approach for imposing the mixed boundary conditions using a hybrid finite-volume/finite-difference ...
