Classification of congestion patterns is important in many areas in traffic planning and management, ranging from policy appraisal, database design, to prediction and real-time control. One of the key constraints in applying machine learning techniques for classification is the availability of sufficient data (traffic patterns) with clear and...

For the reliable estimation of velocity vector fields by means of particle image velocimetry (PIV), the cross-correlation functions calculated from the signal within each interrogation window must feature a distinct peak that represents the average shift of the particle image ensemble. A high valid detection probability (VDP) of the correct...

Urban consumption patterns and lifestyles are increasingly important for the sustainability of cities today and in the future. However, considerations of consumption issues, social norms, behaviour and lifestyles within current urban sustainability research and practices are limited. Much untapped potential for the reduction of the...

The nanoindentation test was conducted in this paper to investigate the indentation hardness, plasticity and initial creep properties of pressure sintered nanosilver joint at various test temperatures. The effects of strain rate on the indentation hardness were first investigated. Then yield stress of nanosilver sintered joint was studied in...

This paper aims to stimulate discussion based on the experiences derived from the QUICS project (Quantifying Uncertainty in Integrated Catchment Studies). First it briefly discusses the current state of knowledge on uncertainties in sub-models of integrated catchment models and the existing frameworks for analysing uncertainty. Furthermore, it...

Thanks to new technological advancements and EU policy impulse, distributed energy resources (DER) are poised to become a viable alternative to conventional electricity generation for the provision of balancing services to transmission system operators. In this paper we show that the design variables that affect DER access to and...

Solid oxide fuel cell systems for combined heat and power production (SOFC μCHP) fueled by natural gas are attractive because of their high electrical and total efficiency even at small scale. The development of a hydrogen economy will increase the availability of distributed hydrogen as a pure gas. Alternatively, hydrogen may be blended with...

A novel approach is introduced that allows the elimination of undesired laser light reflections from particle image velocimetry (PIV) images. The approach relies upon anisotropic diffusion of the light intensity, which is used to generate a background image to be subtracted from the original image. The intensity is diffused only along the...

Adaptive policies have emerged as a valuable strategy for dealing with uncertainties by recognising the capacity of systems to adapt over time to new circumstances and surprises. The efficacy of adaptive policies hinges on detecting on-going change and ensuring that actions are indeed taken if and when necessary. This is operationalised by...

Introduction: Behavioral health risk factors are major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The four main risk factors, the so-called SNAP-factors, relate to smoking, nutrition, alcohol consumption and physical inactivity. A consistent finding in health research is that these behaviors tend to cluster together, thereby resulting in...

Domino effects triggered by fire can cause extremely severe damages to the chemical and process plants. In the need of a more effective prevention of fire domino effects, the present study focuses on firefighting which has received less attention compared to passive and active fire protection systems. Considering both the vulnerability and...

Improving efficiencies of thermal energy conversion systems is an important way to slow down global warming and mitigate climate change. Vapor absorption heat pump and refrigeration cycles are highly efficient ways of heating and cooling. These thermally activated systems also provide opportunities for the integration with a wide spectrum of low...

Spatial and temporal rainfall variability play an important role in generation of pluvial flooding. In urban areas, this phenomenon has increased in the last decades, due in particular to an intensification of urbanization and imperviousness degree. In fact, population is growing and moving from rural areas to cities, which are becoming more and...

Crystallization is one of the essential downstream steps of the manufacturing of chemical and pharmaceutical compounds when it comes to separation, purification, and final product formation. Although it has been years since it is widely applied in the aforementioned industries, it is known as one of the complex processes where continuous...

The geotechnical description of peats represents one of the main challenges in the Netherlands to assure the required safety standard and performance of the flood defence infrastructure. Almost a third of the country is situated below the sea and the rivers level with about 60% to 70% of the population and economic assets concentrated in low...

As the building sector is expanding, a growing interest in technologies that can reduce the CO2 emission from concrete production has led to partial replacement of cement with by-products from various industrial processes. Besides the partial replacement of cement, development of alkali activation technology ensures full replacement of cement in...

Conventional energy technologies and fossil fuels are causing irreversible damage to the environment. A transition from conventional to sustainable technologies is inevitable to address the environmental concerns. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) can play a key role in this transition because of their high efficiency and fuel flexibility – SOFCs...

Separation and selective production of branched paraffins are among the most important and still challenging processes in the oil and gas industry. Addition of branched hydrocarbons can increase the octane number of a fuel without causing additional environmental concerns. Conversion of linear hydrocarbons into branched ones also improves the...
