Stremming, Luca (author)
Aviation is an important contributor to anthropogenic climate change. As indirect greenhouse gases, nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO + NO2) add to the Effective Radiative Forcing (ERF) induced by aircraft emissions. This work addresses a better understanding of emission mitigation by investigating dependencies between engine parameters and emitted...

Burns can make patients’ lives quite miserable. Apart from prominent and thickened, or hypertrophic, scars, the skin may be characterized by contraction. When this contraction is so severe that the patient loses joint mobility, it is called contracture. Then a patient may have difficulties with sports or other daily activities. The consequence...

We consider the stability analysis of a two-dimensional model for post-burn contraction. The model is based on morphoelasticity for permanent deformations and combined with a chemical-biological model that incorporates cellular densities, collagen density, and the concentration of chemoattractants. We formulate stability conditions depending...

Wildfires have become larger and more frequent because of climate change, increasing their impact on air pollution. Air quality forecasts and climate models do not currently account for changes in the composition of wildfire emissions during the commonly observed progression from more flaming to smoldering combustion. Laboratory measurements...

Severe burn injuries often lead to skin contraction, leading to stresses in and around the damaged skin region. If this contraction leads to impaired joint mobility, one speaks of contracture. To optimize treatment, a mathematical model, that is based on finite element methods, is developed. Since the finite element-based simulation of skin...

Pool fire is a typical example of fire accidents in chemical process industries. Since fire researchers have implemented a variety of measurements to gain insights into pool fire and to prevent fire disasters, there is a need to illustrate how pool fire models influence the risk assessment results. This review intends to consecutively discuss...

Every year at the onset of winter season (October–November), crop residue/parali/stubble burning starts in Punjab and Haryana, leading to heavy air pollution in Delhi, and adversely affecting human and environmental health. During this time, the combination of unfavourable meteorological conditions, additional emissions from stubble burning,...

Forest fires are a major ecosystem disturbance at global scale, put pressure on agencies in charge of citizens and infrastructure security and cause unvaluable human losses. Fires are controlled by multiple static and dynamic drivers related to topography, land cover, climate, weather, and anthropic activity. Among these, weather is an active...

Burn injuries can decrease the quality of life of a patient tremendously, because of esthetic reasons and because of contractions that result from them. In severe case, skin contraction takes place at such a large extent that joint mobility of a patient is significantly inhibited. In these cases, one refers to a contracture. In order to...

We consider a two-dimensional biomorphoelastic model describing post-burn scar contraction. This model describes skin displacement and the development of the effective Eulerian strain in the tissue. Besides these mechanical components, signaling molecules, fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, and collagen also play a significant role in the model. We...

We develop a Korteweg-De Vries (KdV) theory for weakly nonlinear waves in discontinuously stratified two-layer fluids with a generally prescribed rotational steady current. With the help of a classical asymptotic power series approach, these models are directly derived from the divergence-free incompressible Euler equations for unidirectional...

Due to the growing demand in air transport, measures need to be taken to reduce the impact of noise and emissions on local communities and the environment. The generic nature of current departure procedures leaves room for improvement in the form of aircraft type dependent departure trajectories. In this study a trajectory optimization model is...

Burnouts are a severe, negative consequence of lacking performance management within firms and a result of a disbalance between energy input (e.g: sleep, social activities, physical activity) and output (e.g: workload, anxiety on the job, caring for a kid) Burnouts lead to employment challenges for firms, resulting in a potential threat for the...

Automotive semiconductor industry has the most critical requirement of quality and hence, pursuits for zero defects. However, due to aggressive scaling, this pursuit has been challenged by the test escapes due to latent gate oxide shorts, despite of being subjected to voltage stress testing using Pseudo Stuck-At test patterns to screen out...

We consider a one-dimensional morphoelastic model describing post-burn scar contraction. Contraction can lead to a limited range of motion (contracture). Reported prevalence of burn scar contractures are 58.6% at 3–6 weeks and 20.9% at 12 months post-reconstructive surgery after burns. This model describes the displacement of the dermal layer...

To deal with permanent deformations and residual stresses, we consider a morphoelastic model for the scar formation as the result of wound healing after a skin trauma. Next to the mechanical components such as strain and displacements, the model accounts for biological constituents such as the concentration of signaling molecules, the...

Carburized steel grades are widely used in applications where high hardness at the surface is required in combination with good core toughness as well as high fatigue resistance. The process of carburizing lower to medium carbon steel can generally provide this combination of properties and has been practised for several decades. Such steel is...

Burn injuries occur daily and can have severe physical and mental effects both in short and long term, such as disabilities due to severe skin contraction. Even though the mortality rate has decreased over the years, the need for a higher quality of life after severe burns remains. Decreasing the probability of a severe contraction is essential...

Harvest. A Burn-out retreat.
 Revitalising 'Plots in the Woods' at Hembrug. <br/>A former munition terrain. A hidden green enclave in Zaandam where de Zaan, het IJ and het Noordzeekanaal cross. Surrounded by water and boats, industry and a big forest. The vision of the project is to revitalise the ‘plots in the woods’ into a burn-out retreat...
