The major bottleneck in state-of-the-art Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) subspace methods is the curse-of-dimensionality during the first regression step. In this paper, the origin of the curse-of-dimensionality is pinpointed and subsequently a novel method is proposed which does not suffer from this bottleneck. The problem is related to the...

In dredging, trenching, (deep sea) mining, drilling, tunnel boring and many other applications, sand, clay or rock has to be excavated. The productions (and thus the dimensions) of the excavating equipment range from mm3/sec - cm3/sec to m3/sec. In oil drilling layers with a thickness of a magnitude of 0.2 mm are cut, while in dredging this can...

Energy efficient buildings significantly contribute to meeting the EU climate and
energy sustainability targets for 2020 as approximately one third of all end-user
energy in Europe today is consumed by space heating / cooling, ventilation and
lighting of buildings. In this context, the energy performance of future building

Background: Many cultural and linguistic Deaf people in South Africa face disparity when accessing health information because of social and language barriers. The number of certified South African Sign Language interpreters (SASLIs) is also insufficient to meet the demand of the Deaf population in the country. Our research team, in collaboration...

A 3D stall-cell flow-field has been studied in a 4.8 aspect-ratio wing obtained by linear extrusion of a laminar NACA64-418 airfoil profile. The span-wise change in the velocity and pressure distribution along the wing has been quantified with respect to the development of cellular structures from 8◦ to 20◦ angle of attack. Oil-flow...

P-limitation in enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) systems fed with acetate, has generally been considered as a condition leading to enrichment of organisms of the genotype’ Candidatus Competibacter phosphatis’ expressing the glycogen-accumulating organisms (GAO) phenotype. Recent studies have demonstrated in short-term experiments...

Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation has been used to study the martensitic transformation in iron at the atomic scale. The paper reviews the available interatomic interaction potentials for iron, which describe the properties of different phases present in that system. Cases on the fcc-to-bcc transformation in iron by MD simulations were...

In this study a novel structure for time-delay MIMO systems controller design is introduced. In this method decoupled Smith predictor (SP) controller is designed using Internal Model Control structure (IMC). In order to approximate decoupled system, step response model approximation is employed and simulated on MIMO multiple time-delay system....

Addition of solutes such as lithium enhances ductility of hexagonal-close-packed (hcp) magnesium (Mg). However, the atomistic underpinning of Li addition on individual deformation mechanisms remain unclear and is the focus of the present work. We compared the deformation mechanisms in nanocrystalline (NC) and single crystal simulation systems...

The effect of a zirconium (Zr)-based pretreatment on interfacial bonding properties of a fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) coating on carbon steel is investigated. The initiation and kinetics of delamination of epoxy coatings applied on differently pretreated carbon steel surfaces is studied with scanning Kelvin probe (SKP). In-situ attenuated total...

Historic vehicles (HVs) are the heritage of road transport that have surprisingly received little attention in the academic literature. This study presents an overview of the literature on HVs, focusing on the three topics that dominate the policy debate on transport: environmental, safety and congestion impacts. We observed that polluting...

Small, intermittently open or closed estuaries are characteristic of the coasts of South Africa, Australia, California, Mexico and many other areas of the world. However, modelling attention has tended to focus on big estuaries that drain large catchments and serve a wide diversity of interests e.g. agriculture, urban settlement, recreation,...

Bentheimer sandstone is a quartz-rich permeable hard sedimentary rock used for core flooding experiments. When fired to stabilize clays (subjected to high temperatures), pyrometamorphical phase changes induce texture and pore framework alteration. As a consequence the new dielectric response may influence wettability. The literature regarding...

We studied how personality moderates the effect of neighbourhood disadvantage on work commitment and unemployment in early adulthood. Using a personality typology of resilients, overcontrollers, and undercontrollers, we hypothesised that the association between neighbourhood poverty and both work commitment and unemployment would be stronger for...

The material property of glossiness, which is attributed to many objects in our daily life, is physically independent of the objects' color. However, perceived glossiness can change with the contrast between the highlight and the area around the specular highlight. Hitherto, experiments mainly investigated gloss on unicolored surfaces. It is...

Molecular dynamics simulations have been used to study the effects of different orientation relationships between fcc and bcc phases on the bcc/fcc interfacial propagation in pure iron systems at 300 K. Three semi-coherent bcc/fcc interfaces have been investigated. In all the cases, results show that growth of the bcc phase starts in the areas...

This essay is conceived as a reaction to the past conference Shaping Cities of the Urban Age at the 2016 Venice Biennale, Reporting from the Front. In light of numerous global crises, urban explosion, housing shortages and rising social movements, contemporary architecture is increasingly being pushed to investigate the social dimension, impact...

Producing a global and comprehensive description of atmospheric aerosols requires integration of ground-based, airborne, satellite and model datasets. Due to its complexity, aerosol monitoring requires the use of several data records with complementary information content. This paper describes the lessons learned while developing and...
