Severe dust storms present great threats to the environment, property and human health over the areas in the downwind of arid regions. Several dynamical dust models have been developed to predict the dust concentrations in the atmosphere. Currently, the accuracy of these models is limited mainly due to the imperfect modeling of dust emissions....

This paper presents a practical dynamic programming based methodology to optimize the long-term maintenance check schedule for a fleet of heterogeneous aircraft. It is the first time that the long-term aircraft maintenance check schedule is optimized, integrating different check types in a single schedule solution. The proposed methodology...

This thesis investigates the behaviour of the often used point-wise skill score, the MSESSini a.k.a. BSS, and develops new error metrics that, as opposed to point-wise metrics, take the spatial structure of morphological patterns into account. The...

In speech processing applications, e.g., speech recognition, hearing aids (HAs), video conferencing, and human-computer interaction, speech enhancement or noise reduction is an essential front-end task, as the recorded speech signals are inevitably corrupted by interference, including coherent/incoherent noise and reverberation. Traditional...

The Kuiper Belt is considered to be formed by remnants of the original Solar System, that is why exploration missions to that region are susceptible of having an enormous scientific impact. Nonetheless, it is far away from Earth, missions to KBO targets a significant challenge. Additionally, current methods to identify trajectories that...

Foam-assisted chemical flooding (FACF) is a novel enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methodology that combines the injection of a surfactant slug, to mobilize previously trapped residual oil, with foam generation for drive mobility control, thus displacing the mobilized banked oil. The main goal of this study concerns the understanding of oil...

The objective of this thesis is twofold: to develop time series analysis methods for the estimation of aquifer parameters and recharge to be used in groundwater models and to develop time series analysis methods for the identification and quantification of a regime change.<br/>In Chapter 2, a pumping test is replaced by time series analysis of...

Collision prevention is critical for navigation safety at sea. At early ages, researchers aimed at developing navigational assistance systems for enhancing situational awareness of human operators as human is at the core of collision avoidance. Recently, autonomous vehicles have gained a remarkable amount of attention with a focus on solving...

In recent years the t-distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding (t-SNE) algorithm has become one of the most used and insightful techniques for exploratory data analysis of high-dimensional data. It reveals clusters of high-dimensional data points at different scales while only requiring minimal tuning of its parameters. However, the...

A 3D head and face scan data can be usefully applied in the ergonomic design of a wearable product such as an oxygen mask or a virtual reality (VR) headset to support the safety as well as comfort for a certain amount of a target population. This study is aimed to develop analysis and design methods of an ergonomic facial wearable products (e.g....

Magnetic fluids have been around since the 1940's. They come in dierent forms: Magnetorheological fluids (MR fluids) and Ferrofluids. MR fluids characterise themselves by having a large change in viscosity under the influence of a magnetic field. Ferrofluids have a significantly smaller change in viscosity however ferrfluids are colloidal...

In this paper we consider L<sup>p</sup>-regularity estimates for solutions to stochastic evolution equations, which is called stochastic maximal L<sup>p</sup>-regularity. Our aim is to find a theory which is analogously to Dore's theory for deterministic evolution equations. He has shown that maximal L<sup>p</sup>-regularity is independent of...

Affluent societies face several challenges involving the relationships between people and their food, including the rise of welfare diseases and the huge amount of food wasted. These problems are partly due to the operation of the market economy, in which companies develop products that cater to momentary desires of individual consumers. To...

With an increasing number of automated vehicles (AV) appearing on roads and interacting with conventional traffic, there is a need for improved simulation approaches to replicate and forecast the resulting effects. Interactions between AVs and their drivers, and interaction with other human drivers involve new types of complex behavioural...

Port cities face enormous sustainability challenges. In this chapter, we propose a relational view of these challenges, exploring how governance tries to connect the three pillars of sustainable development—economic, social, and environmental—and addresses the contradictions inherent to new port plans or waterfront projects. We zoom in on the...

This study analyzes how learning costs for technologies that lack de facto standards, such as mobile payment, affect user intentions. In addition, we evaluate how the negative effect of learning costs is mediated by perceived functional value and facilitating conditions. Data used in this research was obtained from a study among 463 consumers....

An important challenge in synthetic biology is the construction of periodic circuits with tunable and predictable period. We propose a general architecture, based on the use of recombinase proteins and negative feedback, to build a molecular device for periodic switching between two distinct regimes; the switching rule depends on known...

In this letter we show how the problem of assessing structural local stability of BDC-decomposable systems, left open in recent literature, can be solved via convex optimisation. First we give a simple test, based on a sufficient condition, that requires checking the strict co-positivity of a multivariate polynomial. Then we provide a...

The article proposes a method developed for model order reduction in a Finite Element (FE) framework that is capable of computing higher order stiffness tensors. In the method, a truncated third order asymptotic expansion is used for transformation of an FE model to a reduced system. The basis matrix in the formulation of the reduced-order...
