Results of an experimental investigation are reported, conducted to study the stress-strain behavior of a soil having undergone different amounts of internal erosion. The soil used is gap-graded and cohesionless comprising silt, sand and gravel. Internal erosion tests and subsequent triaxial tests are performed in a specially designed apparatus...

This paper studies the influence of CEO overconfidence on firms’ financial performance and corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the US real estate investment trust (REIT) market. CEO overconfidence has been shown to have both negative and positive influences on firms. This paper is the first to combine the two sides in a single framework. We...

A preliminary probabilistic study of the stability of a circular drift excavated for a radioactive waste repository in the French Callovo-Oxfordian claystone is presented and discussed. An analytical mechanical model assuming isotropic elastic behaviour and linear plastic softening was used. Particular emphasis here is placed on the uncertainty...

Important engineered slopes are often heavily instrumented and their performance routinely monitored through these instruments. The evaluation of the safety of the slopes based on the monitored information is however a challenge. A systematic method is presented in this paper for evaluating the slope safety by combining multi-source monitoring...

A full geotechnical risk analysis includes site investigation, model simplification and analysis. The site characterization forms the basis for the choice of the soil parameters used in the subsequent analysis, but the soil data is normally analyzed with crude methods that do not include the effect of the soil variability. A case study is here...

The need for system failure probability, pf , of soil slope stability that takes into account the spatial variation of soil properties has been acknowledged by the geotechnical profession. The spatial variations of cohesion and friction angle for a c-ϕ soil slope were modeled by one dimensional vertical random field respectively. The cross...

Long slopes with variable material properties have a variety of different failure modes that are affected by the correlation distances of the material properties and the geometry and total length of the slope. This work follows previous research examining the consequences of increasing slope length, in which analyses were limited by the...

The effect of probability distributions on the slope reliability is highlighted in this study since the lognormal distribution is often used to characterize the variability of soil properties to avoid negative values. A multiple response-surface based MCS method for slope reliability analysis in spatially variable soils is proposed. A...

Stochastic finite element method and random finite element method can provide rigorous tools for slope reliability analysis incorporating spatial variability of soil properties. However, both of them are difficult to be applied into practice due to the modification of finite-element codes and the low efficiency, respectively. To address these...

The interaction of a normal shock with isotropic turbulence (IT) represents a basic problem for studying some of the phenomena associated with high speed flows, such as hypersonic flight, supersonic combustion and Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF). In general, in practical applications, the shock width is much smaller than the turbulence scales...

Compressible Rayleigh-Taylor turbulent mixing (CRTM) induced by Rayleigh-Taylor instability occurs when a compressible fluid of heavy density is accelerated or supported against gravity by a compressible fluid of light density, and is of fundamental importance in applications from combustion, to inertial confinement fusion, and to astrophysics....

The drag reduction effect of a semi-circular riblet-structured surface in a turbulent boundary layer is experimentally investigated using the micro-pillar shear stress sensor MPS3. The MPS3 sensor is a novel tool for the quantitative measurement of the wall-shear stress distribution and possesses a high spatial and temporal resolution. The...

The transitional phenomena from laminar to turbulent natural convection and the development process inside the channel are investigated using compressible direct numerical simulation (DNS). Numerical method of Roe scheme with preconditioning and dual time stepping are used for addressing natural convection flows with large temperature...

Active drag reduction of a turbulent boundary layer has been experimentally investigated using periodic blowing through one array of streamwise slits. Local skin-friction drag exhibits a strong dependence on control parameters, including the blowing amplitude A+ and frequency f +. A maximum drag reduction of almost 70% has been achieved at x+=33...

In this paper, a steady 3D numerical study has been conducted on a 90 mm counter rotating lift fan to investigate its aerodynamic performance. The effect of axial distance between the fans and rotor speed are studied. A low thrust generation has been revealed from the simulation results due to the unfavourable working condition for the upstream...

In this paper, we propose an approach to autonomously control a quadrotor micro aerial vehicle (MAV). With take-off weight of 50 g and 8-min flight endurance, the MAV platform codenamed ‘KayLion’ developed by the National University of Singapore (NUS) is able to perform autonomous flight with pre-planned path tracking. The vision-based...

Decision-theoretic control of multiple units in game AI [3, 5] is a notoriously hard problem, because the size of the state and action spaces are exponential in the number of agents, making it an interesting testbed for decision theoretic learning algorithms. There are two main approaches: a centralized and decentralized approach. In the...

During the past decades, the modelling of transport demand by activity based methods has gained considerable attention from the scientific community. Such demand models offer a greater modelling flexibility than traditional models, by modelling transport demand as a phenomenon which emerges from the desire to perform activities at different...
