To move towards a condition-based maintenance practice for aircraft structures, design of reliable health management methodologies is required. Development of diagnostic methodologies is commonly realised on simplified sample structures with assumptions that methodologies can be adapted for application to realistic aircraft structures under...

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...

Stress evolution of restrained concrete is directly related to early-age cracking (EAC) potential of concrete, which is a tricky problem that often happens in engineering practice. Due to the global objective of carbon reduction, Ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) concrete has become a more promising binder comparing with Ordinary...

A self-supervised classification algorithm is proposed for detecting and isolating sensor faults of health monitoring devices. This is achieved by automatically extracting information from failure investigations. This approach uses (i) failure reports for extracting comprehensive failure labels; (ii) recorded data of a faulty monitoring...

Quantum uncertainty is a well-known property of quantum mechanics that states the impossibility of predicting measurement outcomes of multiple incompatible observables simultaneously. In contrast, the uncertainty in the classical domain comes from the lack of information about the exact state of the system. One may naturally ask, whether the...

Background: Radionuclide therapy (RNT) has become a very important treatment modality for cancer nowadays. Comparing with other cancer treatment options, sufficient efficacy could be achieved in RNT with lower toxicity. β<sup>−</sup> emitters are frequently used in RNT due to the long tissue penetration depth of the β<sup>−</sup> particles....

The application of building information modeling (BIM) technology has effectively supported the high-quality development of building sustainability and informatization in China. However, few studies comprehensively analyzed the enacted policies, prevalent applications, and existing barriers of the latest application and development of BIM...

The Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna (GBM) Delta is a good example of a large estuarine system with sparse data. This study describes the development and validation of a morphodynamic process-based model (Delft3D) as a tool to predict the dynamic system as a response to climate change, sea-level rise, subsidence and other influences. The modelled...

This thesis focuses on possible platforms for a bottom-up approach towards realizing and characterizing atomically assembled magnetic and electronic artificial lattices. For this, we make use of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM), which provides a local probe of the magnetic and electronic properties of the sample and allows for the atom-by...

Designers generally use human-centred design (HCD) methods to gain insights on the needs of the people they are designing for, and keep focus on these needs when creating solutions. In keeping with this focus, designers use their insights on User Experiences (UX) when making design-decisions.<br/>The focus of human-centred design expanded in the...

In typical power system operations, failures, e.g., caused by degradation, may result in service interruption and loss of power supply. Furthermore, low-occurrence-probability but high-impact extreme events, e.g., natural disasters and cyber-attacks, may also damage the power grid. This thesis aims to develop innovative strategies for handling...

Electrodialysis (ED) is a membrane-based process in which ions are transported under the influence of an externally applied electrical potential. Ion-exchange membranes (IEMs) are key components in ED processes. There are two types of IEMs: (1) cation-exchange membranes (CEMs), which contain fixed, negatively charged groups, and (2) anion...

Steel is found irreplaceable in many industrial applications. It is currently predicted that steel consumption will increase significantly in the coming decades. Humanity is expected to produce more and more steel-based products, such as cables, cars, railways, bridges, stadiums, skyscrapers, etc. The increased demand will pose a serious...

In this thesis we develop several statistical methods to estimate high conditional quantiles to use for statistical post-processing of weather forecasts. We propose methodologies that combine theory from extreme value statistics and machine learning algorithms in order to estimate high conditional quantiles in large covariate spaces. In...

Hydrogen has been contemplated as a desirable energy source of the future with enormous possibilities to create a carbon-neutral society. Since palladium (Pd) readily absorbs hydrogen even at low pressure and room temperature, Pd and its alloys are suitable for hydrogen production, purification, storage, gas sensors, and fuel cell catalyst....

The use of spreadsheets in industry is widespread. Their outcomes are often used to substantiate critical business decisions. Unfortunately, spreadsheets are also error-prone. Consequently, companies risk making decisions based on inaccurate information, which eventually could lead to loss of money and reputation.<br/>This dissertation...

This thesis explores why some consumers buy sustainable options and others do not. As well as how this can be altered through targeted marketing communication and design. Sustainable intent is no guarantee for sustainable behaviour, but sustainable intent is also not a necessity for sustainable behaviour. It is the sustainable behaviour that...

Automated Vehicles (AVs) have a great potential to change transport fundamentally by making it safer, by reducing travel time, and by increasing mobility and accessibility for all. The level of automation of these vehicles determines the extent to which the driver’s task is accomplished by the AV. With the increasing number of AVs entering the...

Due to the ever increasing global connectivity, the demand on the fiber-optic communication infrastructure is projected to keep increasing rapidly. A major factor currently limiting transmission capacity is the fiber nonlinearity. Some researchers have suggested the application of nonlinear Fourier transforms to exploit the fiber nonlinearity...
