To understand and deal with real urban development problems, urban planners, designers, and managers need to combine and synthesize a variety of academic and professional knowledge. As our urban challenges grow more complex, learning how to do this effectively becomes ever more important. For educators, this means teaching students how to...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), as one of the popular options for people to receive education and learn, are endowed with the mission to educate the world. Typically, there are two types of MOOC platforms: topic-agnostic and topic-specific. Topic-agnostic platforms such as edX and Coursera provide courses covering a wide range of topics,...

This paper presents a new polymorphic element modelling approach for multi-scale simulation, with an application to fracture in composite structures. We propose the concept of polymorphic elements; these are elements that exist as an evolving superposition of various states, each representing the relevant physics with the required level of...

The cohesive element (CE) has been widely used to model delamination in laminated composites. The penalty stiffness, interfacial strength and fracture toughness are three CE parameters that often determine the accuracy of the numerical analysis by finite elements (FEs). The fracture toughness may be experimentally determined through standard...

Cracking is inevitable during the service period of concrete structures. They are preferential ingression channels for aggressive ions. It is difficult or even impossible to repair all the cracks due to the limitation of practical conditions. However, cracks have potentials to self-heal due to further hydration and carbonization. The effect of...

Using bionic surface on the material equipment interface of bulk handling equipment is a promising solution for wear reduction. A bionic surface is a flat surface outfitted with a pattern of convexes that disrupt the natural sliding flow of bulk material. Previous numerical work has shown a significant reduction of wear of bionic surfaces...

The power to gas process concept is promising for the next generation of grid electricity storage and stabilization technologies. The electricity-driven fuel production can be chosen to be the efficient energy carrier for excessive grid power. Here, a reversible solid oxide cells system integrated with methane synthesis (ReSOC-MS) is proposed...

Ultrathin two-dimensional (2D) materials have received much attention in the past years for a wide variety of photonic applications because of their pronounced room-temperature excitonic features, leading to unique properties in terms of light-matter interaction. However, only a few studies focus on light amplification and the complex...

This paper addresses a travel time reliable signal control problem. Travel time distributional estimates are obtained from a stochastic microscopic traffic simulator. The estimates are embedded within a simulation-based optimization algorithm. Analytical approximations of the simulated metrics are combined with the simulated data in order to...

As the bridge stock in The Netherlands and Europe is ageing, various methods to analyse the capacity of existing bridges are being studied. Proof load testing is one of the method to test the capacity of bridges by applying loads on the existing concrete bridges with small spans. Because of the fact that neither the actual traffic load nor the...

Numerous methods have been developed for ship collision prevention over the past decades. However, most studies are based on strong assumptions, such as the need for a constant velocity of the target-ship, the limitation to two-ship scenarios, the simplification of ships’ dynamics, etc. Generalized Velocity Obstacle (GVO) algorithm can bridge...

This paper describes a method of determining the reaction forces of a vertical structure with an overhang to impulsive wave impacts. The aim is to develop a method to design a hydraulic structure exposed to the impulsive wave impact. At present, there is a lack of guidelines on the designing and verification with such a purpose. The impulse...

Recently, it has been shown that multiterminal superconducting nanostructures may possess topological properties that involve Berry curvatures in the parametric space of the superconducting phases of the terminals, and associated Chern numbers that are manifested in quantized transconductances of the nanostructure. In this paper, we...

Up-to-date 3D building models are important for many applications. Airborne very high resolution (VHR) images often acquired annually give an opportunity to create an up-to-date 3D model. Building segmentation is often the first and utmost step. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) draw lots of attention in interpreting VHR images as they can...

Mass balance analysis of ice sheets is a key component to understand the effects of global warming. A significant component of ice sheet and shelf mass balance is iceberg calving, which can generate large tsunamis endangering human beings and coastal infrastructure. Such iceberg-tsunamis have reached amplitudes of 50 m and destroyed harbours....
