In order to test protection performance of future multi-terminal HVDC grids where DC circuit breakers (DC CBs) play an important role, a DC CB model in real time test environment should be developed. It is well known that a DC CB needs to interrupt DC faults very quickly in order to avoid converter damages and to ensure security of supply....

The main goal of the paper is the modeling of the mechanical circuit breaker (MCB) that can replicate the breaker characteristics in real time environment. The proposed MCB with active current injection is modelled for a system level, which provides adequate representation of the circuit breakers for system analysis studies. External current...

Membranes with high selectivity and permeance are needed to reduce energy consumption in hydrogen purification and pre-combustion CO <sub>2</sub> capture. Polybenzimidazole (PBI) is one of the leading membrane materials for this separation. In this study, we present superior novel supported PBI (poly(p-phenylene benzobisimidazole), PBDI)...

Microfluidic synthesis techniques can offer improvement over batch syntheses which are currently used for radiopharmaceutical production. These improvements are, for example, better mixing of reactants, more efficient energy transfer, less radiolysis, faster reaction optimization, and overall improved reaction control. However, scale-up...

Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) has been increasingly applied to steel structures for structural strengthening or crack repair, given its high strength-to-weight ratio and high stiffness-to-weight ratio. Cracks in steel structures are the dominant hidden threats to structural safety. However, it is difficult to monitor structural cracks under...

The Hamaker constant between graphene oxide and silica, which quantifies the strength of van der Waals forces is determined, by mimicking a “vacuum spacer” in an atomic force microscopyforce study. It is demonstrated that, a 2D spacer is expected to yield an accurately defined separation, owing to the high atom density and strength in planar...

An experimental study was carried out on the time-dependent mechanical and transport behaviors of the Callovo-Oxfordian (Cox) argillite, the geological barriers for high-level radioactive waste disposal in France. Six coupled one-step creep tests under the same confining pressure 6MPa and different deviatoric stresses were proposed to...

The safe bearing capacity for offshore shallow foundations has been traditionally assessed using working stress design (WSD) methods (e.g. the API RP 2GEO guideline). Other codes of practice such as the ISO standard strive to provide designs achieving a desired target reliability level in the form of the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD)...

In the past few years, random field theory has been increasingly used to model the inherent soil variability. The scale of fluctuation is one of the important parameters describing a stationary random field. In this study, the factors affecting an accurate estimation of the scale of fluctuation were studied with numerical experiments to show how...

Algal blooms have been frequently found at the upper reaches of the Tanglang River, which is downstream from the eutrophic Dianchi Lake. The eutrophic lake upstream is considered to be a potential source of phytoplankton, which contributes to the development of harmful algal blooms in the river downstream and can cause many serious problems for...

The aim of this thesis is to execute a bottom-up design of the intrinsically self-healing nanocomposites. We briefly introduced the self-healing materials in chapter 1, covering classification and basic self-healing mechanism. In chapter 2, we have synthesized polyborosiloxane (PBS) according to the last century recipe as the self-healing...

Viscoelastic stress modeling in ageing cementitious materials is of major importance in high performance concrete of low water cement ratio (e.g. w/c ~0.35) where crack resistance due to deformation restraint needs to be determined. Total stress analysis is complicated by the occurrence of internal stresses due to shrinkage, which requires...

Power systems conventionally have been designed and operated to facilitate electrical energy transportation from large centralised power plants to distant load centres. It is currently under development towards the purpose of being able to facilitate more distributed generation from renewable energy sources (RES), for instance wind and solar...

According to the COLREGs, every Officer On Watch (OOW) shall at all times maintain a proper look-out. Among all the available means of look-out, sight is the most basic and commonly used one. OOWs always need to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision by sight, including estimating the range and bearing. Unlike the...

Polyborosiloxanes (PBSs) are viscoelastic, transparent, colourless, self-healable polymer matrices, synthesized by reacting linear polydimethylsiloxanes (PDMSs) with boric acid (BA) above 150°C. BA takes part not only in cleaving the PDMS chains, but also contributes boronic-acid like moieties to the cleaved chain ends, which provide...

Freezing of water can be explained by the thermodynamic properties of the water due to the influence of temperature, pressure and special effects such as surface tension and salt solution. Gibbs free energy curves for ice and pore liquid containing different concentrations of NaCl (0-6%) are presented. These curves explain the onset of freezing...
