People have used pile foundations throughout history to support structures by transferring
loads to deeper and stronger soil layers. One of the most important questions during the design of the pile foundation is the bearing capacity of the pile. The most reliable method for determining the bearing capacity is to use results from pile load...

In coastal areas, Tropical Cyclones (TCs) are one of the greatest threats to humanity. Unfortunately, current risk reduction measures are not completely successful in lessening TC's consequences due to the remaining uncertainties in the estimates of key parameters, on which the designs of these measures rely. Because reliable observations of TCs...

Limited resources and the wish for improved prosperity call for efficient use of energy. The UN Advisory Group on Energy and Climate Change recommends a target of 40 % improved efficiency by 2030. Materials research can contribute significantly to reach this target. Magnetic refrigeration offers potential to achieve a 50 % higher energy...

The conventional multiscale homogenization theory, which has mainly been applied to determine constitutive laws for bulk materials, suffers from two drawbacks when applied to softening materials. Firstly, the coarse scale response is sensitive to the finite element mesh used to discretize the coarse scale domain. Secondly, increasing the size of...

Modern society relies on cooling technology for food safety, comfort and medical applications. The solid-state cooling technology known as magnetic refrigeration is one of the most promising techniques to replace the current vapor-compression cooling technology. To date, the search for suitable materials with a large magnetocaloric effect (MCE)...

A structural thin bending problem is essentially associated with a fourth-order partial differential equation. Within the finite element framework, the numerical solution of thin bending problems demands the use of C^1 continuous shape functions. Elements using these functions are challenging and difficult to construct. A particular...
