Aluminium alloy AA2024-T3 is a lightweight and damage tolerant material, and is therefore often used in aerospace applications. However, this alloy is difficult to weld using conventional fusion welding techniques due to defects caused by the meld pool.<br/> <br/>Friction stir welding (FSW) was developed by The Welding Institute (TWI) in 1991 in...

The demand for implementing neural networks on edge devices has rapidly increased as they allow designers to move away from expensive server-grade hardware. However, due to the limited resources available on edge devices, it is challenging to implement complex neural networks. This study selected the Kria SoM KV260 hardware platform due to its...

Due to recent developments in DNA sequencing technology, there is a growing abundance of available genomic data. To process this information for use in fields such as healthcare and forensics, raw sequencing data have to be processed using computationally intensive algorithms. Currently, one of the major bottlenecks in this processing pipeline...

This study presents the analogical assessment of the train-induced vibration and radiated noise in a proposed theater. The theater is to be constructed in a region with crowded metro lines, and the assessment is implemented in an analogical building with comparable structural type and metro condition. Prior to the assessment, the comparability...

Return of products within the warranty coverage induces additional cost and loss of reputation to manufacturers. It is of practical interest to predict the return rate by experimental means before introducing a product to the market. In this paper, we propose to optimize accelerated reliability tests to achieve the goal within limited time....

A prime concern for automated vehicles is motion comfort, as an uncomfortable ride may reduce acceptance of the technology amongst the general population. However, it is not clear how transient motions typical for travelling by car affect the experience of comfort. Here, we determine the relation between properties of vehicle motions (i.e.,...

This paper presents a methodology for monitoring transition zones using responses of multiple-axle box acceleration (multi-ABA) measurements. The time–frequency characteristics of the vertical ABA signals from four wheelsets are analyzed. The major contributions are as follows. (1) We propose four key performance indicators (KPIs) to quantify...

This paper presented a comprehensive experimental and simulation study for thermomigration (TM) accompanying electromigration (EM) at elevated current densities. Both Blech and standard wafer-level electromigration acceleration test (SWEAT)-like test structures, with aluminum (Al) as a carrier, were used for testing and analysis. In Part I of...

For a better understanding of the hydrotalcite-like phase with SEM-EDS microanalysis, the present research paid special attention to the data acquisition and interpretation of this technique. A lower Mg/Al ratio was obtained when using a higher accelerating voltage, and a beam energy of 10 kV was more appropriate than 15 kV for investigation...

Constructing an analysis-suitable parameterization for the computational domain from its boundary representation plays a crucial role in the isogeometric design-through-analysis pipeline. PDE-based elliptic grid generation is an effective method for generating high-quality parameterizations with rapid convergence properties for the planar...

Modern High Level Synthesis (HLS) tools succeed well in their engineering productivity goal, but still require toolset and target technology specific modifications to the source code to guide the process towards an efficient implementation. Furthermore, their end result is a fixed function accelerator with limited field and runtime...

The current understanding of the carbonation of alkali-activated concretes is hampered inter alia by the wide range of binder chemistries used. To overcome some of the limitations of individual studies and to identify general correlations between their mix design parameters and carbonation resistance, the RILEM TC 281-CCC working group 6...

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) have become a popular solution for computer vision problems. However, due to the high data volumes and intensive computation involved in CNNs, deploying CNNs on low-power hardware systems is still challenging.<br/>The power consumption of CNNs can be prohibitive in the most common implementation platforms:...

Different types of sensors that monitor the driver, the vehicle, and the surroundings are increasingly being implemented in vehicles. These developments are relevant to formal driving test organizations for the use of sensors in the assessment of driving behaviour. However, no guidelines exist about the exact use of sensor-generated data for...

In current spatial orientation models, vertical acceleration (heave) is not coupled with pilot pitch perception, although such a coupling may be present. Therefore, in this study it is investigated whether a heave cue can increase perceived pitch in pilots.<br/><br/>Airline pilots (n = 20) performed a pitch perception task in a hexapod simulator...

Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are often pruned to achieve faster training and inference speed while also requiring less memory. Nevertheless, during computation, most modern GPUs cannot take advantage of the sparsity automatically, especially on networks with unstructured sparsity. Therefore, many libraries that exploit sparsity, have...

To limit the effects of climate change, it is crucial to motivate contractors and the government to reduce emissions at construction sites in the infrastructure sector. This research is an exploratory study on which barriers slow down and which drivers accelerate the transition towards zero-emission construction sites in the Dutch infrastructure...

Membranes of sufficient bonding characteristics could improve the integrity of the multi-layer structures on orthotropic steel deck bridges (OSBDs), enhancing thus the structural response of these systems and, ultimately, their service life. In this research, full-scale experiments were performed at the LINTRACK accelerated pavement testing...

This paper identified carbonation products in the slag-rich cementitious systems upon three different exposure conditions, namely, long term exposure in the field, indoor natural exposure, and accelerated carbonation testing. Overall, mineralogy of the carbonation products was found to be fundamentally similar under different exposure...
