The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

Currently, EEG recordings are mostly made using scalp recording devices. These devices are typically difficult to put on and bulky, limiting their use to a lab environment. In-ear EEG recording is proposed as a more practical alternative to scalp EEG recording. <br/><br/>In-ear EEG replaces the scalp electrode array with more discrete earpieces,...
