The usability now serves as a fundamental quality of a computational device, e.g. smartphone. Moreover, the smartphone has firmly embedded into our daily life as an indispensable part, so the context and style that user may interact with them are largely different from a decade ago. Nowadays, testing usability with end user has become a...

This paper presents an embarking and disembarking process for the hyperloop, a future high-speed transportation of passengers and goods in tubes. A concept of the (dis)embarking process has been designed and tested with two experiments. The first experiment was performed to compare the new concept to one that is more similar to the current...

Pile foundations used for offshore wind structures are subjected to large lateral loading from wind and waves while in service as well as significant vertical loading from the top structure. Erosion of soil from around these structures, termed scour, poses a significant problem for the structural stability. In order to better understand the...

In this paper, we present preliminary results on the development of smart technology solutions for lower density railway lines. The goal is to reach a cost effective inspection and asset management to minimize maintenance
interventions time/cost without dedicated inspection vehicles. The proposed methods include axle box acceleration...

This paper presents a methodology to support decision making based on the tram wheel-rail interface condition. The methodology relies on the following measurements: tram failure log-files regarding wheel-sliding events, monitored acoustics data and open source weather information. The proposed methodology consists of three stages: 1) data...

In this paper, we propose a methodology based on signal processing and evolutionary multiobjective optimization to facilitate the maintenance decision making of infra-managers in regional railways. Using a train in operation (with passengers onboard), we capture the condition of the rails using Axle Box Acceleration measurements. Then, using...

The main challenge for predictive simulation of carbonate reservoirs is associated with large uncertainties in the geological characterization with multiple features including fractures and cavities. This type of reservoirs requires robust and efficient forward-simulation capabilities to apply data assimilation or optimization technique under...

With the increasing number of indoor navigation applications, it is essential to have clear and complete conceptual model (in the form of UML class diagram) for IndoorGML. The current version of IndoorGML standard has an incomplete class diagram (incomplete w.r.t. attributes, of which some are appearing in the XML/GML schema), and that...

In this paper we discuss rail condition monitoring based on axle box acceleration (ABA) measurements. We present three case studies. The first one in The Netherlands, the detection of local defects with different severity levels (squat A, squat B and squat C) is analysed. The second case from the Faurei testing ring in Romania, the detection of...

Chemical deformation is an important material property which influences the autogenous deformation of the materials. While geopolymer is emerging as an eco-friendly alternative to ordinary Portland cement (OPC), few studies have been conducted on the chemical deformation of this material. In this paper, the chemical deformation of a metakaolin ...

Prognostic and Health Management (PHM) describes a set of capabilities that enable effective and efficient approaches towards data analysis for fault diagnostics and failure prognostics. This can support decision making related to health management, sustainment and operation of critical systems, such as aviation systems. As a result of the...

Ontology matching consists of finding correspondences between semantically related entities of different ontologies. The Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI) aims at comparing ontology matching systems on precisely defined test cases. These test cases can be based on ontologies of different levels of complexity (from simple...

Results of an experimental investigation are reported, conducted to study the stress-strain behavior of a soil having undergone different amounts of internal erosion. The soil used is gap-graded and cohesionless comprising silt, sand and gravel. Internal erosion tests and subsequent triaxial tests are performed in a specially designed apparatus...

By using inflatable moulds and then spraying cellulose-water mixture, one ice dome and two ice towers were built in Harbin in December 2016. During the whole process, form-finding of the inflatable moulds as well as the construction of these ice composite shell structures are very important for the final results.
The mould for the ice dome...

There has been a long tradition in making ice structures, but the development of technical improvements for making ice buildings is a new field with just a handful of researchers. Most of the projects were realized by professors in cooperation with their students as part of their education in architecture and civil engineering. The following...

This paper studies the influence of CEO overconfidence on firms’ financial performance and corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the US real estate investment trust (REIT) market. CEO overconfidence has been shown to have both negative and positive influences on firms. This paper is the first to combine the two sides in a single framework. We...

The three dimensional nature of soil spatial variability implies the need for 3D analysis of geotechnical structures. This paper presents the probabilistic analysis of long slopes such as levees and highway embankments, which are usually analysed unrealistically in plane strain, thereby ignoring the discrete failure mechanisms often encountered...

The state of the art in automotive control has proposed several analytical, simulation and experimental studies of longitudinal adaptive cruise control strategies, and of lateral control strategies. However, methodical integration of these two strategies is to a large extent missing, as well as validation in real-time computing environment of...
