In practical combustion devices featuring high power densities, the interaction between flames and walls may have a significant impact on the thermodynamic efficiency and the formation of pollutants (e.g. unburned hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide). The common understanding is that at the region near the wall ~ 1 mm, where the solid metal surface...

While dynamic plantar pressure measurements are commonly used for clinical evaluation of gait-related problems, computational analysis techniques for these datasets are few and farbetween. To address this issue, we introduce an open-access database of plantar pressure videos for researchers to develop algorithms around.

Buildings and structures in many cities have recently been exposed to an increased number of highly dynamic hazards. These include not only floods and earthquakes but also man made threats such as ballistic impacts and blasts. Thus, the assessment of the dynamic performance of structures made of quasi-brittle materials must account also for high...

Climatic conditions and vegetation cover influence the water flux in a dike body, which affect the effective stress and self-weight, hence its stability. The vegetation is the intermediate layer between the atmosphere and the soil, and therefore this layer influences the boundary water flux by transpiration and leaf interception, so considering...

Neural interface in the form of microelectrodes are used to monitor and treat spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders by the means of recording and stimulation. Despite of the apparent result of these electrical interventions, understanding of the mechanism behind neural stimulation is still inadequate. The use of optical monitoring...

Optogenetics is a neuromodulation method that holds great potential for the realization of advanced neuroprostheses due to its precise spatial-temporal control of neuronal activity [1]. The development of novel optogenetic implants (optrodes) may open new doors to investigate complex brain circuitry and chronical brain disorders, such as...

Active implantable medical devices have been developed for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of large variety of neural disorders. Since the mechanical properties of these devices need to be matched to the tissue, soft materials, such as polymers are often preferred as a substrate [1]. Parylene is a good candidate, as it is highly...

As the era of Bioelectronic medicines (BEms) evolves, new technological challenges are generated, including miniaturized devices that are encapsulated with flexible materials and energized by wireless power transmission (WPT) techniques. Among them, magnetostatic, also known as inductive, and ultrasound (US) are the most viable candidates for...

Electronic components in the form of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) establishing the communication between the body and the implant, such as stimulation and recording, have, nowadays, become essential elements for current and future generations of implantable devices, as medicine is looking into substituting its traditional...

Incubators in cell cultures are used to grow and maintain cells under optimal temperature alongside other key variables, such as pH, humidity, atmospheric conditions etc. As enzymatic activity and protein synthesis proceed optimally at 37.5 oC, a temperature rise can cause protein denaturation, whereas a drop in temperature can slow down...

The main goal of bioelectronic medicine is to, one day, replace conventional chemical drugs with miniaturized implants. This way, tiny electrical pulses will be locally delivered to a small group of neurons in order to influence and modify biological functions. Developing such implants, however, has brought many new challenges both in the...

Wind farms form an ever increasing share of the world’s electricity production capacity. But now that wind energy subsidy schemes are coming to an end, the cost per unit of electricity produced must become structurally lower than the fossil fuel-based power plants society wants replaced. Optimization of the farms’ design [1] is essential to...
