To eliminate organic micropollutants (OMPs) from (surface) water, activated carbon adsorption is a cost-effective technology to remove a broad range of OMPs without producing any byproducts. However, co-existing dissolved organic matter (DOM), at much higher concentrations (mg C/L) than OMPs (ng/L-μg/L), inducing adsorption competition, can...

The therapeutic properties of light have been known for thousands of years, but photodynamic therapy (PDT) was only developed in the last century. Currently, PDT is in clinical trials for the oncology-the treatment of head and neck, brain, lung, pancreas, abdominal cavity, breast, prostate, and skin cancer. Advantages of the light-based...

Coastal flooding is threatening the personal safety, property, and social development of the low-lying land around the coast worldwide. Stormsurge is one of the main sources of coastal flooding. Tide and surge models can provide timely water level forecasts for coastal management with the early warning of flooding. Although a regional model can...

Recovery of ammonia (NH<sub>3</sub>) from residual waters offers various reuse opportunities, such as the production of fertilisers and the generation of electricity and heat. However, simultaneous evaporation of water (H<sub>2</sub>O) during NH<sub>3</sub> stripping under vacuum results in diluted recovered NH<sub>3</sub> gas with high H<sub...

Alternative current impedance spectroscopy (ACIS) is a promising non-destructive testing method to monitor long-term change and assess the durability of concrete. This study investigates the influences of Ethylene Diamine Tetraacetic Acid (EDTA) on the hydration of hardening cement by ACIS. It is found that EDTA retards the early-age...

Progress has been made in how to suppress epidemic spreading on temporal networks via blocking all contacts of targeted nodes or node pairs. In this work, we develop contact blocking strategies that remove a fraction of contacts from a temporal (time evolving) human contact network to mitigate the spread of a Susceptible-Infected-Recovered...

Morphing is a promising bio-inspired technology, with the potential to make aircraft more economical and sustainable through adaptation of the wing shape for best efficiency at any flight condition. This paper proposes an online black-box performance optimization strategy for a seamless wing with distributed morphing control. Pursuing global...

This study investigated the design and development of an autonomous aeroservoelastic wing concept with distributed flaps. This wing demonstrator was developed in the scope of the SmartX project, aiming to demonstrate in-flight performance optimization and multi-objective control with over-actuated wing designs. Following a successful test...

Lignin, one of the most abundant natural polymers, has been extensively studied as an additive in bituminous binders. Even though the lignin improves the overall resistance against oxidative aging of bitumen, it could lead to high thermal cracking sensitivity. In this study, a bio-oil (i.e., rapeseed oil) is implemented in lignin-modified...

As the use of distributed energy resources increases, peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading is becoming a promising way to harmonize the decarbonization and decentralization transformations in the energy sector. P2P markets give households the autonomy to make individual decisions and thus they may cooperate with each other to obtain economic...

Net water transport (NWT) in estuaries is important for, for example, salt intrusion and sediment dynamics. While NWT is only determined by river runoff in single channels, in estuarine networks, it results from a complex interplay between tides and residual flows. This study aims to disentangle the various contributions of these physical...

A three-phase buck-type rectifier features a step-down ac-dc conversion function, which is considered as a prominent solution for electric vehicle chargers and telecommunication systems integrated to the grid above 380 V line to line. However, traditional solutions for those applications employ cascaded architectures with an ac-dc boost-type...

In the present work, an ODS 12 Cr steel was characterized using Electron Microscopy techniques, in an as-received condition and after annealing treatments between 773 K and 1573 K. Results show a complex microstructure, with the presence of fine Y–Ti–O nanoparticles dispersed in the matrix. After annealing at 1573 K, the average diameter of Y...

Material Extrusion (MEX) systems with dual-material capability can unlock interesting applications where flexible and rigid materials are combined. When chemically incompatible materials are concerned the adhesion between the two might be insufficient. Therefore researchers typically rely on dovetail type interlocking geometries in order to...

Since its inception, the choice modelling field has been dominated by theory-driven modelling approaches. Machine learning offers an alternative data-driven approach for modelling choice behaviour and is increasingly drawing interest in our field. Cross-pollination of machine learning models, techniques and practices could help overcome problems...

Developing numerical method of fractured porous media is of paramount importance in geoscience applications. Previous studies have revealed that the discrete fractures and cavities as well as the heterogeneity have considerable influences on hydraulic property of porous media. This work presents a numerical investigation on fluid flow in...

In this paper, the interference mitigation for Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar system with a dechirping receiver is investigated. After dechirping operation, the scattered signals from targets result in beat signals, i.e., the sum of complex exponentials while the interferences lead to chirp-like short pulses. Taking...

To investigate the train-induced ground vibration, an explicit time-domain, three dimensional (3D) finite element (FE) model is developed. The train, track, embankment, pile-board structure and nearby ground soils are all fully coupled in this model. The complex geometries involving the track components and pile-board structure are all...

The rate reduction models have been widely used to model the recurrent failure data for their capabilities in quantifying the repair effects. Despite the widespread popularity, there have been limited studies on statistical inference of most failure rate reduction models. In view of this fact, this study proposes a semiparametric estimation...

In this paper, we establish an event-triggered intelligent control scheme with a single critic network, to cope with the optimal stabilization problem of nonlinear aeroelastic systems. The main contribution lies in the design of a novel triggering condition with input constraints, avoiding the Lipschitz assumption on the inverse hyperbolic...
