In this paper, we aim to effectively suppress the spread of epidemic/information via blocking/removing a given fraction of the contacts in a temporal (time evolving) human contact network. We consider the SI (Susceptible- Infected) spreading process, on a temporal contact network to illustrate our methodology: an infected node infects a...

This paper proposes a nonlinear control architecture for flexible aircraft simultaneous trajectory tracking and load alleviation. By exploiting the control redundancy, the gust and maneuver loads are alleviated without degrading the rigid-body command tracking performance. The proposed control architecture contains four cascaded control loops:...

This paper focuses on the attitude control and propellant slosh suppression of aeroelastic launch vehicles. Four candidate controllers are proposed: the Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR), the Incremental Non-linear Dynamic Inversion (INDI) control, the Incremental Sliding Mode Control (INDI-SMC), and the Feedback Linearisation-based Sliding Mode...

This paper proposes a new model, referred to as the show and speak (SAS) model that, for the first time, is able to directly synthesize spoken descriptions of images, bypassing the need for any text or phonemes. The basic structure of SAS is an encoder-decoder architecture that takes an image as input and predicts the spectrogram of speech that...

State estimation is of considerable significance for the power system operation and control. However, well-designed false data injection attacks can utilize blind spots in conventional residual-based bad data detection methods to manipulate measurements in a coordinated manner and thus affect the secure operation and economic dispatch of grids....

This paper aims at developing low-complexity solutions for super-resolution two-dimensional (2D) harmonic retrieval via covariance reconstruction. Given the collected sample covariance, a novel gridless compressed sensing approach is designed based on the atomic norm minimization (ANM) technique. The key is to perform a redundancy reduction (RR)...

Designing and implementing artificial systems that can be interfaced with the human brain or that can provide computational ability akin to brain's processing information efficient style is crucial for understanding human brain fundamental operating principles and to unleashing the full potential of brain-inspired computing. As basic neural...

An estimated half of the world’s languages do not have a written form, making it impossible for these languages to benefit from any existing text-based technologies. In this paper, a speech-to-image generation (S2IG) framework is proposed which translates speech descriptions to photo-realistic images without using any text information, thus...

Adhesive bonding is a highly desirable joining technique to join composites to metals. The surfaces of both composite and metal substrates have to be carefully treated before bonding them together, in order to avoid interface failure between the adherend's surface and adhesive. This paper describes the surface pretreatments on carbon fiber...

In this paper, we explore how to effectively suppress the diffusion of (mis)information via blocking/removing the temporal contacts between selected node pairs. Information diffusion can be modelled as, e.g., an SI (Susceptible-Infected) spreading process, on a temporal social network: an infected (information possessing) node spreads the...

This paper concerns wideband direction of arrival (DoA) estimation with sparse linear arrays (SLAs). We rely on the assumption that the power spectrum of the wideband sources is the same up to a scaling factor, which could in theory allow us to resolve not only more sources than the number of antennas but also more sources than the number of...

Designing and implementing artificial neuromorphic systems, which can provide biocompatible interfacing, or the human brain akin ability to efficiently process information, is paramount to the understanding of the human brain complex functionality. Energy-efficient, low-area, and biocompatible artificial neurons are key ubiquitous components of...

Microwave heating is a promising heating technology for the maintenance, recycling and deicing of pavement structures. Many experimental studies have been conducted to investigate the microwave heating properties of asphalt mixtures in the laboratory. However, very few studies investigated the application of microwave heating on asphalt...

Oxidative aging is a complex phenomenon in bitumen and its fundamental understanding is needed to optimize paving materials with long-lasting characteristics. This research reports on a diffuse-reaction model for predicting the oxidation of bituminous binders over time and under different conditions. As known, the oxidation of bitumen is...

Fundamental models should be developed and utilized in order to facilitate the chemo-mechanical design of modified binder systems for paving applications but not only. Especially, the fact that the incorporation of new chemical substances used as bio-based modifiers or alternative binders is attracting great interest to replace traditional...

Hierarchy is regarded as a natural phenomenon of public transport networks (PTN). The imbalanced distribution of passenger flow result in a hierarchical structure of PTN and it is also related to the development of technology and the introduction of new modes. However, there is still a lack of knowledge on how to identify the hierarchical...

Real-time railway traffic management is important for the daily operations of railway systems. It predicts and resolves operational conflicts caused by events like excessive passenger boardings/alightings. Traditional optimization methods for this problem are restricted by the size of the problem instances. Therefore, this paper proposes a...

Compared with partially superconducting generators, fully superconducting generators (F-SCGs) can further increase the torque density in large direct-drive wind turbine applications. Design trends of F-SCGs intend to increase the electrical loading by applying superconducting wires and boost the current density in the armature winding to meet...
