We design a distributed algorithm for learning Nash equilibria over time-varying communication networks in a partial-decision information scenario, where each agent can access its own cost function and local feasible set, but can only observe the actions of some neighbors. Our algorithm is based on projected pseudo-gradient dynamics, augmented...

Reflective Tilted Fiber Bragg Grating (TFBG) sensors have intriguing sensing capabilities due to the resonance-peaks present in their transmitted spectrum. Previous works measured the external refractive index (ERI) in which the TFBG sensor is placed, by considering the wavelengths or the envelope of the cladding-modes resonances. In this...

The newly refurbished vertical tunnel (V-tunnel) at Delft University of Technology has been redesigned as a state-of-the-art facility for research in aeroacoustics (A-tunnel), as well as fundamental studies in laminar-turbulent transition and flow control. This manuscript focuses on the design and refurbishment aspects of the facility,...

Cardiorespiratory monitoring is crucial for the diagnosis and management of multiple conditions such as stress and sleep disorders. Therefore, the development of ambulatory systems providing continuous, comfortable, and inexpensive means for monitoring represents an important research topic. Several techniques have been proposed in the...

Production of oil and natural gas in North America is at an all-time high due to the development and use of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. Methane emissions associated with this industrial activity are a concern because of the contribution to climate radiative forcing. We present new measurements from the space-based...

Transport infrastructure owners are moving from reactive toward proactive infrastructure management. This involves computation of costs associated with failure or maintenance, including expected transport delays. These delays are often computed by multiplying additional travel time by the number of travellers. However, this does not reflect...

Combining polymers with small amounts of stiff carbon-based nanofillers such as graphene or graphene oxide is expected to yield low-density nanocomposites with exceptional mechanical properties. However, such nanocomposites have remained elusive because of incompatibilities between fillers and polymers that are further compounded by...

Understanding the process of initiation, design, implementation and embedding of educational innovations in higher education is necessary to develop better strategies for sustainable, large-scale educational innovation. Often early initiated educational innovation projects are not evaluated well enough, making it hard to identify lessons...

Mechanical properties of composite laminates can be tuned by either tailoring ply orientations or by using ply drops to change thickness profiles. The latter cause resin-rich pockets to form in thermoset composites that are autoclave cured after lay-down. This paper focuses on the morphology of ply drop regions with carbon fibre thermoplastic...

Efficient joining of hybrid thermoset/thermoplastic composite joints is critical to produce high performance lightweight structures while keeping the cost low. Herein, a high-power UV-irradiation technique was proposed to rapidly active the surfaces of PEEK and PPS composites for the following co-cure joining with epoxy composites. A single...

Design and optimisation of large structures, including the positioning of lower-level components, typically require extensive user involvement and sequential mechanical analysis/optimisation iterations. This paper presents an original method that enables adaptive positioning of lower-level models (such as components) within higher level...

Two distinct length scale transition methodologies are developed to establish effective traction-separation relations for fracture in composite materials within a hierarchical multiscale framework. The two methodologies, one kinetics-based and the other kinematics-based, specify effective fracture properties that satisfy a surface-based Hill...

This study investigates the early fatigue damage of cross-ply carbon/epoxy laminates. The aim is to unfold the damage accumulation process, understand the interaction between different damage mechanisms, and quantify their contribution to stiffness degradation. Tension-tension fatigue tests were performed, while edge observation and DIC...

An approach to improve the performance of steels for fusion reactors is to reinforce them with oxide nanoparticles. These can hinder dislocation and grain boundary movement and trap radiation-induced defects, thus increasing creep and radiation damage resistance. The present work investigates the thermal stability of the microstructure and...

An experimental study on broadband noise scattered by permeable trailing edges with different pore arrangements is performed. A NACA 0018 airfoil with chord c = 0.2 m is investigated at chord-based Reynolds numbers ranging from 1.4 × 10<sup>5</sup> to 3.8 × 10<sup>5</sup> and angles of attack of 0.2 and 5.4 degrees. Noise emission from five...

A high-power UV-irradiation technique was proposed for the surface treatment of PPS and PEEK composites, aiming to achieve good adhesion with epoxy adhesives. The composite substrates were rapidly UV-irradiated for a duration of between 2–30s, and then bonded using an aerospace film adhesive to produce joints. Tensile lap-shear strength and...

Surfactant-alternating-gas (SAG) is a preferred method of foam injection, which is a promising means of enhanced oil recovery. Liquid injectivity in a SAG process is commonly problematic. Our previous studies suggest that the liquid injectivity can be better than expected due to the existence of a collapsed-foam region formed during the gas...

This work concerns the fatigue behavior at three different temperature conditions (−40, 20, and 80°C) and the addition of multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) into a carbon-fiber reinforced poly(ether-imide) composite. The incorporation of MWCNT into the composite increased the tensile strength and Young's modulus by up 5 and 2%, respectively....

Aircraft maintenance is key for safe and efficient aircraft operations. While most studies propose cost-efficient maintenance strategies, the safety and efficiency of these strategies need to be quantified. This paper proposes a formal framework to assess the safety and efficiency of maintenance strategies by means of agent-based modelling,...

Finding automatically multiple lesions in large images is a common problem in medical image analysis. Solving this problem can be challenging if, during optimization, the automated method cannot access information about the location of the lesions nor is given single examples of the lesions. We propose a new weakly supervised detection method...
