Asset degradation and maintenance strategies are driving factors that cause the variation in life cycle cost (LCC) of infrastructure assets. In the railway industry, several researchers have analyzed the impact of the uncertainty on LCC, but the emphasis was laid on traditional ballasted tracks. Another type of track structure, embedded rail...

The use of protons to treat cancer has expanded rapidly in the past two decades. For safe and effective proton therapy, the proton range in a patient’s body must be accurately determined. Current treatment planning is based on X-ray computed tomography images, which might cause uncertainty because of the different behaviour between protons and X...
