Gaining insights into anticipated future expenses is essential for both the planning and construction phases of a project. A significant factor in future costs, particularly over extended periods, is the variability of material and labor prices. the change in costs over time, known as ’cost escalation,’ has been the focus of numerous research...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the biodistribution of (super-)selective trans-arterial radioembolization (TARE) with holmium-166 microspheres (<sup>166</sup>Ho-MS), when administered as adjuvant therapy after RFA of HCC 2–5 cm. The objective was to establish a treatment volume absorbed dose that results in an absorbed dose...

Fire is one of the main accident scenarios occurring in chemical and process plants, and it can lead to domino effects due to thermal radiation. Emergency response is necessary to prevent fire escalation, in addition to safety barriers. In major industrial fire accidents, backup is usually required in emergency response, due to the lack of...

In chemical industrial areas, technological accidents triggered by natural events (Natech events) may escalate. Complex cascading multi-hazard scenarios with high uncertainties may be caused. Resilience is an essential property of a system to withstand and recover from disruptive events. The present study focuses on the change of the resilience...

The energy transition process nowadays is characterized by the replacement of fossil fuels-based means of production with renewable energy (RE). Alongside the diffusion of decentralized RE, this process is associated with the increased promotion of RE megaprojects. Such megaprojects, however, are often shaped by path-dependent lock-ins and thus...

The monitoring of an escalating negative interaction has several benefits, particularly in security, (mental) health, and group management. The speech signal is particularly suited to this, as aspects of escalation, including emotional arousal, are proven to easily be captured by the audio signal. A challenge of applying trained systems in real...

Lock-in is defined as the tendency to continue with an inefficient decision or project proposal. The front-end phase is critical to project success, yet most studies have focused on lock-in in the implementation phase. Moreover, little is known about the way in which decision-makers perceive the risk of lock-in. In this paper we identify...

A disruption to hazardous (flammable, explosive, and toxic) material (HAZMAT) storage plants may trigger escalation effects, resulting in more severe storage performance losses and making the performance restoration more difficult. The disruption, such as an intentional attack, may be difficult to predict and prevent, thus developing a...

The INTERSPEECH 2021 Computational Paralinguistics Challenge addresses four different problems for the first time in a research competition under well-defined conditions: In the COVID-19 Cough and COVID-19 Speech Sub-Challenges, a binary classification on COVID-19 infection has to be made based on coughing sounds and speech; in the Escalation...

Cost overruns in infrastructure projects has been a well-known phenomenon for almost a decade. As per the generally accepted definition, the industry has been measuring cost overruns as the cost exceedance with respect to the approved contractor’s budget. But researchers are realizing the fact that the decision-to-build is generally taken long...

Construction, infrastructure and public or private projects have a long history of project ailments which almost always lead to cost escalation. From all the studies conducted in the past that looked and examined the cost escalation phenomenon, it seems that cost overrun is more of a rule than an exception. Some studies show even that on average...

Een belangrijk fenomeen dat kostenoverschrijdingen kan verklaren is lock-in. We definiëren lockin als de buitenmatige verbondenheid van besluitmakers aan een inefficiënt besluit. Dit kan op twee manieren invloed hebben op de mate van kostenoverschrijdingen. Ten eerste methodologisch: kostenoverschrijdingen worden berekend op basis van de...

The city produces spaces that could be termed as voids, due to a momentum of a design which tends to fill with clear functions and meanings each corner of it. As the city develops, within the limits of it appear as an integral part, spaces that lack of a clear role. Their meaning is continuously open to the formulation and often emerges ...
