It is still a great challenge to fabricate conjugated polymer monolayer field-effect transistors (PoM-FETs) due to intricate crystallization and film formation of conjugated polymers. Here we demonstrate PoM-FETs based on a single monolayer of a conjugated polymer. The resulting PoM-FETs are highly reproducible and exhibit charge carrier...

This paper presents the cascaded integration of Incremental Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion (INDI) for attitude control and INDI for position control of micro air vehicles. Significant improvements over a traditional Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) controller are demonstrated in an experiment where the quadrotor flies in and out of a 10 m...

With increase in the number of sensors installed on sub-assemblies of industrial components, the amount of data collected is rapidly increasing. These data hold information in the areas of operation of the system and evolution of health condition of the components. Therefore, extracting the knowledge from the data can bring about significant...

The rate of home-ownership has increased significantly in many countries over the past decades. One motivating factor for this increase has been the creation of wealth through the accumulation of housing equity, which also forms the basic tenet of the asset-based welfare system.
In generating the home equity, house price developments play an...

Monitoring the properties of a CO2 storage reservoir is important for two main reasons: firstly, to verify that the injected CO2 is safely contained in the reservoir rock as planned, and secondly, to provide data which can be used to update the existing reservoir models and support eventual mitigation measures in case of deviation from the CO2...

In recent years, transportation agencies and the general public alike are demanding increased considerations of sustainability in transport infrastructure. Warm mix asphalt (WMA) is developed for reducing energy consumptions and emissions in asphalt paving industry. In addition, the use of rubberized asphalt concrete (RAC) has proven to be...

According to the report by the United Nations in 2015, the global population of older persons aged 60 years or over is predicted to grow to 1.4 billion by 2030. A rapidly aging population poses a challenging problem for human beings, i.e. supply shortage of working-age people. To solve this problem, increasing research efforts are poured into...

In radionuclide therapy, radioisotopes are used to irradiate tumours from within the body. Usually beta-emitters coupled to tumour-targeting molecules are used, which specifically accumulate at the tumour site. Instead of using beta-emitters, it is also possible to use radionuclides which emit an alpha particle upon decay. Alpha particles have a...

A 3-D numerical method is developed to investigate the spatial distribution of surface fluxes over heterogeneous surfaces in (semi-)arid regions. Quantifying the effects of changes in the momentum, thermal and moisture roughness lengths on the airflow and fluxes in the ABL is important for water resources management and local climate studies....

We study fast and robust iterative solvers for large systems of linear equations resulting from simulation of flow trough strongly heterogeneous porous media. We propose the use of preconditioning and deflation techniques, based on information obtained frfrom the system, to reduce the time spent in the solution of the linear system.An important...

Controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) data are sensitive to the subsurface resistivity distribution, but 3D inversion results are ambiguous, and in-depth interpretation is challenging. Resolution and sensitivity analysis as well as the influence of noise on resolution have been used to quantify 3D inversion performance. Based on these...

The recently developed smart well technology allows for sectionalized production control by means of downhole inflow control valves and monitoring devices. We consider borehole radars as permanently installed downhole sensors to monitor fluid evolution in reservoirs, and it provides the possibility to support a proactive control for smart...

The aim of this study was to investigate the applicability of acoustic emission (AE) technique to evaluate delamination crack in glass/epoxy composite laminates under quasi-static and fatigue loading. To this aim, double cantilever beam specimens were subjected to mode I quasi-static and fatigue loading conditions and the generated AE signals...

Composite girder with corrugated steel web is one of the promising concrete-steel hybrid structures with superior properties and cost effectiveness widely applied in highway and railway bridges. The connection between concrete slabs and corrugated steel web is an important part of such composite structure. In order to improve pouring quality...

Enabled by the increased availability of data, the data assimilation technique, which incorporates measured observations into a dynamical system model to produce a time sequence of estimated system states, gains popularity. The main reason is that it can produce more accurate estimation results than using either a simulation model or the...

Wireless networked control systems, as the name indicates, employ wireless networks to interconnect their components, e.g. sensors, computing units, and actuators, in their implementation. Removing wires from control system implementations, the components can be more easily installed in spatial positions that are hard to access, and facilitate...

The variation of transitional flow features past a micro-ramp is investigated when the Reynolds number is decreased approaching the critical regime. Experiments are conducted in the incompressible flow spanning from supercritical to subcritical roughness-height-based Reynolds number ( , 730, 460 and 320) with tomographic particle image...

Correspondence theory originally arises as the study of the relation between modal formulas and first-order formulas interpreted over Kripke frames. We say that a modal formula and a first-order formula correspond to each other if they are valid on the same class of Kripke frames. Canonicity theory is closely related to correspondence theory. We...

The majority of existing offshore wind turbines typically consist of a monopile foundation, a transition piece with a vertically positioned grouted connection, a turbine tower, and a turbine. Of the 2,653 offshore turbines that were installed by the end of 2015, 80 percent are supported by a monopile.
Despite the current overwhelming...
