For the assessment of existing slab-between-girder bridges, the shear capacity and failure mode are under discussion. Previous research showed that the static and fatigue punching capacity of the slabs is sufficient as a result of compressive membrane action. The girders then become the critical elements. This research studies the shear capacity...

Ideal controlled pulmonary drug delivery systems provide sustained release by retarding lung clearance mechanisms and efficient lung deposition to maintain therapeutic concentrations over prolonged time. Here, we use atomic layer deposition (ALD) to simultaneously tailor the release and aerosolization properties of inhaled drug particles...

Proof load testing can be an interesting method to assess existing bridges for which analytical methods are unable to provide an accurate assessment. In a proof load test, a load representative of the factored live load is applied to the bridge. If the bridge can carry this load without distress, the proof load test is success-ful, and the...

Sticking of particles has a tremendous impact on powder-processing industries, especially for hygroscopic amorphous powders. A wide variety of experimental methods has been developed to measure at what combinations of temperature and moisture content material becomes sticky. This review describes, for each method, how so-called stickiness...

The influence of partial substitution of Bi for Sb on the structure, magnetic properties and magnetocaloric effect of Mn<sub>2</sub>Sb<sub>1-x</sub>Bi<sub>x</sub> (x = 0, 0.02, 0.04, 0.05, 0.07, 0.09, 0.15, 0.20) compounds has been investigated. The transition temperature of the antiferro-to-ferrimagnetic (AFM-FIM) transition initially...

The wettability of pharmaceuticals is a key physical property which influences their dissolution rate, dispersibility, flowability and solid-state stability. Here, we provide a platform of surface nanoengineering methods capable of tuning the wettability of drug powders from high hydrophilicity to superhydrophobicity with drug loadings up to...

Fluidization of cohesive pharmaceutical powders is difficult to achieve and typically requires the introduction of external forces. This study investigates the fluidization of the fine inhalation grade of lactose powders (size range from 0.1-20 μm) that are specifically developed for dry powder inhalation (DPI) applications. The fluidization...

We previously presented a systematic optics-based canonical approach to test material-lighting interactions in their full natural ecology, combining canonical material and lighting modes. Analyzing the power of the spherical harmonics components of the lighting allowed us to predict the lighting effects on material perception for generic...

In the Netherlands, many prestressed concrete bridge girders are found to have insufficient shear–tension capacity. We tested four girders taken from a demolished bridge and instrumented these with traditional displacement sensors and acoustic emission (AE) sensors, and used cameras for digital image correlation (DIC). The results show that AE...

Materials are omnipresent. Recognizing materials helps us with inferring their physical and chemical properties, for instance if they are compressible, slippery, sweet and juicy. Yet in literature, much less attention has been paid to material perception than to object perception. This dissertation presents studies on a method to systematically...

Acoustic Emission (AE) monitoring is one of the possibilities to detect the crack distribution inexisting concrete structures. However, the conventional method requires further destruction likeopening of new cracks or propagation of the existing cracks. In this paper, a new strategy ofusing local cumulative AE activities during unloading to...

Photographers and lighting designers set up lighting environments that best depict objects and human figures to convey key aspects of the visual appearance of various materials, following rules drawn from experience. Understanding which lighting environment is best adapted to convey which key aspects of materials is an important question in...

To better understand the interactions between material perception and light perception, we further developed our material probe MatMix 1.0 into MixIM 1.0, which allows optical mixing of canonical lighting modes. We selected three canonical lighting modes (ambient, focus, and brilliance) and created scenes to represent the three illuminations....

In this paper, we deal with event-triggered feedback control for Lur'e systems that consist of negative feedback interconnection of nominal linear dynamics and an unknown static nonlinearity. The unknown nonlinearity is conventionally assumed to lie in a given sector while the sector bounds are known. In the presence of event-triggered...

In this paper, adaptive tracking control of switched nonlinear systems in the parametric strict-feedback form is investigated. After defining a reparametrisation lemma in the presence of a non-zero reference signal, we propose a new adaptive backstepping design of the virtual controllers that can handle the extra terms arising from the...

MatMix 1.0 is a novel material probe we developed for quantitatively measuring visual perception of materials. We implemented optical mixing of four canonical scattering modes, represented by photographs, as the basis of the probe. In order to account for a wide range of materials, velvety and glittery (asperity and mesofacet scattering) were...

The control of metabolite production is difficult in mixed culture fermentation. This is particularly related to hydrogen inhibition. In this work, hydrogenotrophic methanogens were selectively enriched to reduce the hydrogen partial pressure and to realize efficient acetate production in extreme-thermophilic (706C) mixed culture fermentation....

During winter the Yellow River in China is frequently subjected to ice flood disasters. Possible dike breaking due to ice floods poses a serious threat to the part of the region located along the river, in particular the Ning–Meng reach (including Ningxia Hui and the Inner Mongolia autonomous regions). Due to its special geographical location...
