Quantum error correction (QEC) is key to have reliable quantum computation and storage, due to the fragility of qubits in current quantum technology and the imperfect application of quantum operations. In order to have efficient quantum computation and storage, active QEC is required. QEC consists of an encoding and a decoding process. The way...

In this research a framework is proposed including factors involved for success in multi-mode standardization. This framework was applied to identify the relevant factors in the case of phosphorus recovery in form of struvite from municipal wastewater. The following eleven factors were deemed to be relevant by experts:‘financial strength’, ...

The rapid urban growth of Brazilian cities in the second half of the twentieth century produced an extremely unequal urban fabric with spatial discontinuities and left-over spaces. Spatial fragmentation in Brazilian metropolises is not only related to spatial discontinuities, but also to socioeconomic inequalities. Walls in Brazil are physical...

Like many rivers around the world, the Loire river in France has a history of human interventions in order to facilitate navigation and port development. Next to affecting bed levels directly, the heavy modification of the river-estuary has induced significant changes in the hydrodynamic and morphodynamic behaviour of the Loire. As a result, the...

Additive manufacturing (AM) is currently making a transition from mainly being used for prototyping to an alternative for conventional production methods. AM provides more freedom in design geometry combined with the possibility to produce (complex) products in low quantities. As a result, the need arises for printed parts with consistent...

Following their conception in the mid twentieth century, the world of computers has evolved from a landscape of isolated entities into a sprawling web of interconnected machines. Yet, given this evolution, many of the methods we use for allowing computers to work together still reflect their inherently isolated origins with the aggregation of...

The superyacht industry faces an increasing trend of larger dimensions, more open spaces, larger hull openings and more exotic shapes. This puts more effort on the structural design and especially for superyacht longitudinal stiffness is important, since the luxurious interior and delicate systems installed in a superyachts are not allowed to...

On final approach, an Approach (APP) Air Traffic Controller (ATCo) is responsible for keeping sufficient separation between aircraft lining up on the ILS. The current industry standard is to separate these aircraft with a minimum distance, called Distance-Based Separation or DBS. European regulation requires all European airports to implement...

The electrification of drive trains in current and next generation vehicles require vibration dampers that possess different dynamic properties than its internal combustion engine counterparts. This makes research in automotive vibration damping a hot topic. Research in this field often contains the practice of Frequency Based Substructuring ...

Monetary policy is the process by which the central bank attempts to maintain price stability. Typically, this is done by manipulating the interest rate. This process is executed by the central bank of a country or union. Specifically, the policy makers of a central bank make policy decisions manually, based on advise and experience. The process...

The Netherlands is often depicted as a battleground, with the Dutch in a constant struggle against the water that surrounds them. This project examines this tradition in the context of the Wadden Sea and the island of Schiermonnikoog, where this battle between the land and the sea is at its most extreme.

This project traces the myth of ...

The behaviour of square steel tube confined reinforced concrete columns after fire exposure was studied experimentally and numerically in this paper. Eighteen stub columns were first heated following the ISO 834 standard fire including both heating and cooling phases, and were subsequently loaded to failure after cooling to ambient temperature....

Environmental analysis should be performed early in the Research and Development (R&D) phases of new technologies to timely determine potential impact and, thereby, include prevention and minimization of unfavorable ecological impact into the innovation process. Here, we demonstrate the application of anticipatory Life Cycle Assessment ...

The aim of this study is to investigate the factors affecting the acceptability of a bicycle sharing system (BSS) in Mashhad, which is the first BSS to be introduced in Iran. Given the low usage rated of the BSS, we distributed a survey in all stations. 134 users answered the questionnaire. We clustered the potentially relevant factors in...

During the development for railway, ballasted track is dominant structure and makes up more than 95% of the whole track modes. However, its shortage is considerable in high speed railway and heavy haul system. Regarding to the ballasted railway track's defects as particle breakage, settlement, and geometry irregularity which lead to enormous...

In epoxy-bitumen systems, temperature contributes to the development of physiochemical and mechanical characteristics during curing (chemical hardening) and at the long-term service (oxidative aging) of pavement structures. Hardening (i.e., chemical or oxidative controlled) is a complex phenomenon in epoxy-modified binders and the in-depth...
