When designing wearables that interface with the human head, face and neck, designers and engineers consider human senses, ergonomics and comfort. A dense 3D pressure discomfort threshold map could be helpful, but does not exist yet. Differences in pressure discomfort threshold for areas of the head, neck and face were recorded, to create a 3D...

Multivariate piecewise polynomial functions (or splines) on polyhedral complexes have been extensively studied over the past decades and find applications in diverse areas of applied mathematics including numerical analysis, approximation theory, and computer aided geometric design. In this paper we address various challenges arising in the...

One of the main difficulties in measuring partial discharges (PD) in gas-insulated substations (GIS) is the overlapping of pulses at the sensor's location, which distorts the pulse resolution and the charge estimation. This research presents a new method called “synergy,” which identifies and suppresses reflections using magnetic and electric...

Neutrophils play a pivotal role in orchestrating the immune system response to biomaterials, the onset and resolution of chronic inflammation, and macrophage polarization. However, the neutrophil response to biomaterials and the consequent impact on tissue engineering approaches is still scarcely understood. Here, we report an in vitro...

Event-triggered control (ETC) is a major recent development in cyber–physical systems due to its capability of reducing resource utilization in networked devices. However, while most of the ETC literature reports simulations indicating massive reductions in the sampling required for control, no method so far has been capable of quantifying...

Integrating a porous material into the structure of an aerofoil constitutes a promising passive strategy for mitigating the noise from turbulence–body interactions that has been extensively explored in the past few decades. When a compact permeable body is considered in the aeroacoustic analogy derived by Curle to predict this noise source, a...

We investigated the effect of temperature and monoethanolamine (MEA) concentration on the self-diffusivity of acid gases, CO<sub>2</sub>, and H<sub>2</sub>S in aqueous MEA solutions. For this purpose, we computed densities of pure MEA and 30 wt% MEA/water solutions while scaling the LJ energy (ϵ) parameter and point charges of MEA. Results...

A prime concern for automated vehicles is motion comfort, as an uncomfortable ride may reduce acceptance of the technology amongst the general population. However, it is not clear how transient motions typical for travelling by car affect the experience of comfort. Here, we determine the relation between properties of vehicle motions (i.e.,...

A combination of high-resolution imaging, low-pressure gas adsorption, and small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering quantifies changes in the pore characteristics of pulverized shale samples under oxic and anoxic environments up to 300 ℃. Clay-rich early-mature shales have a fair potential to generate hydrocarbons, the total organic carbon...

Cyclists’ phone use can cause distractions and impose risks towards traffic safety. To prevent phone-related distractions, the Netherlands introduced a ban on handheld (HH) phone use for cyclists in July 2019. The effects of traffic rules on phone use and their underlying mechanisms are, however, uncertain. Comparing survey results from the...

This work proposes a hybrid space vector modulation (HSVM) scheme for multiport hybrid converters (MHCs). Moreover, the impact of shifting the auxiliary currents from the main ones is proposed and investigated in order to enhance the converter efficiency. The proposed operational schemes have been implemented in a three-phase 5 kW MHC...

This study presents environmentally friendly and low-cost synthetic routes to produce antimicrobial coatings over 5052 Al alloy based on plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO) technology. Two methodologies were explored: the decoration with copper and anodic doping with copper ions. The porous oxide layers produced in silicate media presented...

Monitoring the deformations of immersed tunnels is important during the entire tunnel service life to assess the structural integrity of the tunnel. Conventional joint deformation monitoring is based on manual levelling measurements and normally occurs only at multi-year intervals, which does not allow to capture short term deformation...

At a global scale, intertidal areas are being reclaimed for agriculture as well as urban expansion, imposing high human pressure on the coastal zone. The Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta (GBD) is an exponent of this development. In this delta, land reclamation accelerated in the 1960's to 1980's, when polders were constructed in areas subject to...

Increasing levels of vehicle automation are envisioned to allow drivers to engage in other activities but are also likely to increase the incidence of Carsickness or Motion Sickness (MS). Ideally, MS is studied in a safe and controlled environment, such as a driving simulator. However, only few studies address the suitability of driving...

To ensure the reliability of power systems, the independent system operator (ISO) manages the planning process of the maintenance of generation units for generation companies (GENCOs). This paper focuses on a widely studied two-layer long-term predictive maintenance decision making framework in a deregulated environment. In the first layer...

Return of products within the warranty coverage induces additional cost and loss of reputation to manufacturers. It is of practical interest to predict the return rate by experimental means before introducing a product to the market. In this paper, we propose to optimize accelerated reliability tests to achieve the goal within limited time....

This research evaluates the performance of a Phase Change Material (PCM) battery integrated into the climate system of a new transparent meeting center. The main research questions are: a. “Can the performance of the battery be calculated?” and b. “Can the battery reduce the heating and cooling energy demand in a significant way?” The first...

Accurate modelling of waves in harbours and the response of moored ships to that type of forcing is of prime importance to determine the safety and workability of ships moored at berths exposed to local wave conditions. This study investigates the combination of a non-hydrostatic wave-flow model (SWASH) and a 3D boundary-integral diffraction...

With the increasing penetration of converter-interfaced generators, the frequency containment reserve (FCR) from conventional generators keeps going down, leading to a potential risk of frequency instability under contingencies. Consequently, Converter-interfaced generators are required to provide FCR and participate in the corrective...
