Integration of flood risk in spatial planning is increasingly seen as a way to enhance cities’ resilience to the growing flood hazards, albeit its operationalisation remains challenging. This study aims to explain the reasons for this difficulty through the case study of Guangzhou, a Chinese delta city that is highly vulnerable to coastal,...

We identify the presence of monatomic steps at the Si/SiGe or Si/SiO2 interface as a dominant source of variations in the dephasing time of silicon (Si) quantum dot (QD) spin qubits. First, using atomistic tight-binding calculations we show that the g-factors and their Stark shifts undergo variations due to these steps. We compare our...

Many Chinese cities are increasingly exposed to the impacts of climate change, particularly to flooding. The National Sponge City Program was set up to address this challenge. This chapter examines how municipal interventions in spatial planning have been formulated in response to this national program. The case of Guangzhou is examined, a mega...

Silicon quantum dot spin qubits provide a promising platform for large-scale quantum computation because of their compatibility with conventional CMOS manufacturing and the long coherence times accessible using 28Si enriched material. A scalable error-corrected quantum processor, however, will require control of many qubits in parallel, while...

A country profile based on LADM has been conceptualised in the last few years as part of joint research efforts between the Department of Survey and Mapping Malaysia (JUPEM) and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). The LADM conceptual model covers various aspects of spatial data components available in the mapping agency (JUPEM), including data...

Green building (GB) policies have been implemented to promote GB and address climate change. Most of the existing literatures have studied the costs and benefits of developing GB, without considerations of GB policies’ impacts. This paper aims to study costs and benefits of implementing GB policy from developers’ perspective. It takes the Gross...

Secondary electron emission materials are reviewed with the aim of providing guidelines for the future development of novel transmission dynodes. Materials with reflection secondary electron yield higher than three and transmission secondary electron yield higher than one are tabulated for easy reference. Generations of transmission dynodes...

The combined α-, γ-, and x-ray emitter <sup>213</sup>Bi (half-life, 46 min) is promising for radionuclide therapy. SPECT imaging of <sup>213</sup>Bi is challenging, because most emitted photons have a much higher energy (440 keV) than common in SPECT. We assessed <sup>213</sup>Bi imaging capabilities of the Versatile Emission Computed...

About 40% of global energy consumption and nearly one-third of global CO2 emissions are on account of buildings. In Hong Kong, buildings consume up to 90% of electricity during construction and operation, where all the design and construction of private developments is subject to control under the Buildings<br/>Ordinance. The way building...

Gross Floor Area (GFA) concession scheme, as a planning incentive, is developed from the notion of “make developers pay” in UK in 1990. It rewards developers additional GFA in exchange for public amenities so that government could save that amount of money. This paper carries out a review of GFA concession scheme in Hong Kong and Singapore to...

The excellent overall properties of silicon nitride, particularly its mechanical strength and resistance to many etchants, make it a widely used material for microsensors and microactuators. In this paper silicon-rich silicon nitride (SRN) films were investigated as material for ultra-thin transmission dynodes in electron multiplication. These...

Public-private partnerships (PPP) can be employed to provide public rental housing for young graduates, which has been urgent to achieve social sustainability in China. However, few studies have been conducted to investigate the financing structure of PPPs, particularly the ratio of private investment, which is important in initiating a PPP...

The paper, through a “regenerative” lens, has focused upon a new conceptual game system involving transaction costs (TCs) for creating a more accessible green buildings (GB) market. Individual stakeholders steadfastly guard their own interests in any investment decision, which seldom considers any positive gains to society. Green buildings,...

Delivering green building (GB) projects involve some activities that are atypical in comparison with conventional buildings. Such new activities are characterized by uncertainty, and they incur hidden costs that have not been expected nor are they readily appreciated among the stakeholders. This paper develops a typology and chronology to...

We present our insect-based hovering Flapping-Wing Micro Air Vehicle (FW-MAV) capable of sustained flight and control. The proposed design combines two fixed wings and two flapping wings to take advantage of the double clap-and-ling effects at the end of each half-stroke during one flapping cycle for high thrust production, and utilizes the...

Study was conducted on the effect of wing root angle deflection to pave the way for the implementation of tailless flight control on a hovering flapping wing platform. Hypotheses of how the wing root deflection in the sagittal direction could help generate pitching and yawing moments are presented and investigated. The investigation was...

This paper proposes a comprehensive Land Administration Domain Model (LADM, ISO 2012) country profile for 2D and 3D cadastral registration system for Malaysia. The proposed Malaysian country profile is partly based on the existing spatial (including survey) and administrative registration systems, and partly based on new developments inspired by...
