Rotating ring-like structures are very commonly used in civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering. Typical examples of such structures are components in turbomachinery, compliant gears, rolling tyres and flexible train wheels. At the micro-scale, rotating ring models find their applications in the field of ring gyroscopes, in which high...

The paper reviews the 26 “landing on the taxiway” cases happened between 1982 and 2016 recorded by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) aviation accident/incident database, it evaluates causal and contributing factors such as visibility, navigation, preparation, fatigue, experiences, age and more affecting pilots’ operations. Also,...

Concrete is a brittle composite material that easily fractures under tension. Due to the fact that the early-age deformation of the concrete member is restrained by adjoining structures, cracking can occur throughout the concrete prior to application of any load. The cracks would provide preferential access for aggressive agents penetrating in...

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...

Surface heat fluxes (latent and sensible heat over the land surface) play a key role in the land-atmosphere interaction, and their spatial pattern as well as temporal evolution are vital to the terrestrial water cycle and surface energy balance. Ideally, we want to have accurate estimates of spatially distributed and temporally continuous fluxes...

This paper investigates the human controllers’ sensitivity to added first-order lag-lead and lead-lag dy- namics in the controlled system dynamics using a cybernetic approach and a dedicated human-in-the-loop experiment. The extent to which human controllers will adapt their control dynamics to these added dynamics is objectively determined and...

Pyrolytic carbon black (CB <sub>p</sub> ) from scrap tire pyrolysis is a potential modifier for the bitumen industry. Binders containing different contents of CB <sub>p</sub> were prepared and experimentally investigated to examine the effects of CB <sub>p</sub> on the electrical and thermal conductivity, conventional physical properties,...

Severe lattice distortion is a core effect in the design of multiprincipal element alloys with the aim to enhance yield strength, a key indicator in structural engineering. Yet, the yield strength values of medium- and high-entropy alloys investigated so far do not substantially exceed those of conventional alloys owing to the insufficient...

Microwave heating is an encouraging heating technology for the maintenance, recycling, and deicing of asphalt pavement. To investigate the microwave heating properties of asphalt mixture, laboratory tests and numerical simulations were done and compared. Two types of Stone Mastic Asphalt (SMA) mixture samples (with basalt aggregates and steel...

A new high-order model for in-plane vibrations of rotating rings is developed in this paper. The inner surface of the ring is connected to an immovable axis through an elastic foundation (distributed springs), whereas the outer surface is traction free. The developed model enables the dynamic analysis of the rings on stiff elastic foundation...

This study addresses the contribution of spatial variance in the railway track support stiffness to the expected long-term track degradation. Hereto, a novel frequency-domain model is developed with a double periodicity ‘layer’, capable of dealing with both sleeper periodicity and arbitrary non-uniformity in track properties. The model...

Knowledge on the kinetics of gas hydrate dissociation in microporous sediments is very important for developing safe and efficient approaches to gas recovery from natural gas hydrate (NGH) deposits. Herein, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are used to study the dissociation kinetics in microporous sediments. The hydrate phase occupies a...

This paper demonstrates low-loss acoustic delay lines (ADLs) based on shear-horizontal waves in thin-film LiNbO <sub>3</sub> for the first time. Due to its high electromechanical coupling, the shear-horizontal mode is suited for producing devices with large bandwidths. Here, we show that shear-horizontal waves in LiNbO <sub>3</sub> thin...

Realistic microscopic traffic simulation is essential for prospective evaluation of the potential impacts of new traffic control strategies. Freeway corridors with interacting bottlenecks and dedicated lanes generate complex traffic flow phenomena and congestion patterns, which are difficult to reproduce with existing microscopic simulation...

In the theory of partial coherence, coherence singularities can occur in the spectral degree of coherence (SDOC): in case the fields at two different points are completely uncorrelated, the phase of the SDOC is undefined. For a partially coherent vortex beam, the detection of coherence singularities is linked to the measurement of topological...

Surface pretreatment is generally applied before application of protective coatings on Mg alloys, which influences surface microstructure and electrochemical activity of the substrate and has an effect on the coating properties. The effect of various pretreatment processes (sand-blasting, grinding and polishing) on the microstructure and...

As a sensor-based control method, incremental nonlinear dynamic inversion (INDI) has been applied to various aerospace systems and has shown desirable robust performance against aerodynamic model uncertainties. However, its previous derivation based on the time scale separation principle has some limitations. There is also a need for stability...

Severe winds produced by thunderstorm downbursts pose a serious risk to the structural integrity of wind turbines. However, guidelines for wind turbine design (such as the International Electrotechnical Commission Standard, IEC 61400-1) do not describe the key physical characteristics of such events realistically. In this study, a large-eddy...
