<b>Background</b><br/>Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a progressive, chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disorder, affecting 0.5-1.5% of the world's population. Current RA disease activity assessment methods rely on subjective, labor-intensive methods. Therefore, an unmet need exists for objectively assessing RA disease activity through a low-labor...

Inkjet printing is a technology that has been widely studied and implemented. The liquids that are used for inkjet printing can vary. There is the traditional ink which can be found in almost every household printer. But it is also possible to use inkjet printing to deposit drugs, proteins and nanoparticles on substrates. Inkjet printing has the...

The shift to sustainable energy sources has increased demand for Energy Transition Metals such as nickel, copper, cobalt, and manganese. To satisfy this need while reducing the negative social and environmental effects of conventional mining, Deep-sea Nodule Collection (DSNC) appears to be a feasible option. Despite its potential, DSNC...

The growing consumption of fossil energy resources increases greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). To meet the industry sector's target of reducing GHG emissions by 49% in 2030, relative to the levels in 1990, there is a need for energy storage. Energy storage offers a potential solution to enhance the utilization of renewable energy, by addressing...

At the turbulent/non-turbulent interface (TNTI) of a jet flow, momentum is transferred from the turbulent jet fluid to the fluid at rest. This transfer is governed by two mechanisms. One of them is related to the large scales of the flow and the other relates to the small scales of the flow. Which of the two is dominant is still a point of...

Semi-active lower limb prostheses currently use variable damping to generate the gait cycle. This, however, only dissipates energy. Variable stiffness can store and release energy, making prostheses more efficient for walking. This study aims to design and evaluate a semi-active adjustable stiffness ankle-knee prosthesis that can change its...

The use of machine learning (ML), especially neural networks, in modeling control systems has shown promise, particularly for systems with complex physics. However, applying these models in safety-critical areas requires reliable verification and control synthesis methods due to their inherent complexity. Formal methods, using stochastic finite...

In the further advancement of the energy transition towards renewable energy sources, a significant role can be played by energy storage systems. A relatively new energy storage technology is the reversible solid oxide cell. A reversible solid oxide cell is an electrochemical device that can operate as an electrolyser to produce a fuel from...

With the enormous growth of portable electronics and the market expansion of electric vehicles, the demand for lithium-ion batteries is increasing enormously. To meet this demand, efficient recovery of battery components becomes crucial. Graphite, the material of choice for lithium-ion battery anodes, faces significant supply risks as current...

An unfamiliar subject to the contemporary connecting options for cranes on pontoons is removability; Various difficulties and obstructions related to the heavy-duty nature of the equipment lead to a limited amount of practiced conventional connecting options for this purpose, which all have the absence of removability in common. Furthermore, the...

Energy harvesting has gained lots of interest over the past few decades. This study explores the application of energy harvesting in lower limb prosthetic devices. The control system of a lower limb prosthesis includes sensors, wireless<br/>systems and other active components which all require battery power. In order to save some of this battery...

The predominant influence of geometry and tensile stress on the Q factor of nanomechanical resonators is a phenomenon commonly described as dissipation dilution. In recent years, a variety of studies has looked into maximizing this effect, resulting in an assortment of softly-clamped resonator designs. This paper proposes a methodology that uses...

The Global Shipping industry is responsible for transporting 90% of global commerce and is responsible for 3% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Addressing this, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce GHG emissions from international shipping by 40% by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050. This study explores Low...

Micro- and nanoelectromechanical (MEM/NEM) resonators are used in numerous fields of engineering and are crucial for time keeping, synchronization, and sensing applications. These systems are subjected to energy dissipation, which is a limiting factor in the performance. Extensive understanding is essential when nonlinearities show up in both...

The availability of laparoscopy in low-income settings has been limited based on the requirements that have to be met to perform this type of abdominal surgery. At the same time, these regions and countries could stand to gain the most from it based on quicker recovery times and a lower chance of infections. Attempts have been made to solve this...

Background: Bilateral tubal ligation (BTL) is the most common method of contraception worldwide because it is safe and effective. However, its accessibility remains unequal among women in rural India, in part due to a lack of laparoscopic equipment. Rural hospitals therefore resort to gas insufflation-less laparoscopic surgery (GILLS) because it...
