Urban areas face a variety of ecological challenges in their development. To improve urban ecology, strategic use of vegetation, particularly trees, is essential. As the amount of land available in cities decreases, the combination of buildings with vertically planted trees has become a popular way to increase urban greenery. However, this...

The objective of the European Green Deal is to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 [1]. Due to a growing global population and increased needs for travelling on the one hand, and progressive bans of short-haul flights by the governments on the other, the need for a more...

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...

Introduction:<br/>Chronic Pain (CP) presents a complex and prevalent issue that significantly affects individuals and society. Exploring the complexities of CP involves analyzing Functional Connectivity (FC), a process that identifies how different brain regions communicate across distances. Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is particularly effective...

We present a dual-polarized connected array of slots with an artificial dielectric layer (ADL) radome for mobile communication applications operating in the sub-6 GHz and the upper 6 GHz bands of 5G. The radiating slots are combined with two interchangeable ADL radomes with different thicknesses, targeting the bands 6-8 and 2-8 GHz,...

Schedule design in the transportation and logistics sector is a widely studied problem. Transport service providers, such as the train industry and aviation, aim for schedules to be on-time according to the planning (i.e., on-time performance or OTP) in order to increase the service level by ensuring that passengers actually make their...

Current deep neural networks (DNNs) are overparameterized and use most of their neuronal connections during inference for each task. The human brain, however, developed specialized regions for different tasks and performs inference with a small fraction of its neuronal connections. We propose an iterative pruning strategy introducing a simple...

The low-temperature relaxation and fatigue cracking performance are two essential aspects in estimating the rejuvenation efficiency of recycling agents (RAs). This study aims to fundamentally investigate the effects of recycling agent type/dosage and aging degree of bitumen on thermodynamic and rheological properties of rejuvenated bitumen at...

Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) has made remarkable progress in autonomous vehicle decision-making and execution control to improve traffic performance. This paper introduces a DRL-based mechanism for cooperative lane changing in mixed traffic (CLCMT) for connected and automated vehicles (CAVs). The uncertainty of human-driven vehicles (HVs...

Spalling is the main problem concerning safety in concrete structures under rapid heating. Despite being studied for nearly a century, its prediction remains a challenge. In addition, the main recommendations for its prevention are merely the addition of a fixed amount of polypropylene fibres, without accounting for mix design. This paper...
