This paper presents results of material characterisation experiments on the hygrothermal viscoelastic behaviour of unidirectional laminates of continuous carbon-fibre reinforced polyamide 6. The material behaviour when subjected to the automotive painting process is of interest. Coefficients of thermal- and -moisture expansion were determined...

In this paper, a decision support approach is proposed for condition-based maintenance of rails relying on expert-based systems. The methodology takes into account both the actual conditions of the rails (using axle box acceleration measurements and rail video images) and the prior knowledge of the railway track. The approach provides an...

A novel framework to fuse structural health monitoring (SHM) data from different in-situ monitoring techniques is proposed aiming to develop a hyper-feature towards more effective prognostics. A state-of-the-art Non-Homogenous Hidden Semi Markov Model (NHHSMM) is utilized to model the damage accumulation of composite structures, subjected to...

This work presents a method to emulate the flow dynamics of physically based hydrodynamic simulators under variations of time-dependent rainfall and parametric scenarios. Although surrogate modelling is often employed to deal with the computational burden of this type of simulators, common techniques used for model emulation as polynomial...

One of the geometrical restrictions associated with printed paste materials such as concrete, is that material must be self-supporting during printing. In this research paper a new methodology for 3D Printing Concrete onto a temporary freeform surface is presented. This is achieved by setting up a workflow for combining a Flexible Mould...

A stepwise experimental design procedure to obtain reliable data from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) was developed. The proposed procedure aims at determining sets of additional measurements (besides available ones) that guarantee the identifiability of key process variables, which means that their value can be calculated from other,...

Cost-optimal electricity system configurations with increasing renewable energy penetration were determined in this article for six islands of different geographies, sizes and contexts, utilizing photovoltaic energy, wind energy, pumped hydro storage and battery storage. The results of the optimizations showed strong reasoning for islands to...

Cooling demands of commercial buildings present a relevant challenge for a sustainable future. They account for over half of the overall energy needs for the operation of an average office building in warm climates, and this situation is expected to become more pressing due to increasing temperatures in cities worldwide. To tackle this issue, it...

Industrial wastewaters are becoming increasingly associated with extreme conditions such as the presence of refractory compounds and high salinity that adversely affect biomass retention or reduce biological activity. Hence, this study evaluated the impact of long-term salinity increase to 20 gNa+.L−1 on the...

The much over-looked element in new sanitation, the transport systems which bridge the source and treatment facilities, is the focus of this study. The knowledge of rheological properties of concentrated domestic slurry is essential for the design of the waste collection and transport systems. To investigate these properties, samples were...

The main objective of this thesis is to design a new aerosol layer height retrieval in order to improve the operational NO2 retrieval, both in the troposphere, from space-borne instruments for highly polluted events and under cloud-free conditions. This thesis focuses on the exploitation of the OMI satellite measurements acquired in the visible...

The purpose of this work is as follows. Military aircraft are enormous investments for a nation. The systems lifecycle for aircraft spans decades wherein aging effects increase maintenance and operations costs over time. At some point, the deterioration of a fleet of aircraft erodes the capability of those assets below an acceptable threshold,...

The current energy scenario requires not only the conversion of renewable energy sources into electrical energy, but also a way to store it to match the demand and supply. In particular, solar energy can be used to stabilize energy conversion and energy supply by converting the energy in other diverse ways. And important possibility are photo...

Environmental noise caused by traffic and industrial facilities is a relevant health factor in urban areas, along major traffic routes and in the vicinity of airports. The technique of auralization helps exploring the relationships between sound and its impact on people under fully controlled conditions. Further, by directly addressing the...

The recent start-up of several full-scale ‘second generation’ ethanol plants marks a major milestone in the development of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strains for fermentation of lignocellulosic hydrolysates of agricultural residues and energy crops. In contrast to the fermentation of hexose sugar-rich substrates, such as corn syrup or sugar...
