Transition zones in railway tracks, which occur at changes in track form and or substructure properties, are known to cause issues with track degradation. Examples can be found where a track section, usually a ballast track, transits to a slab track to cross a roadway or waterway through supporting structures such as bridges, level crossings,...

Advancements in aerial vehicles have presented new challenges for flight control system design. The disturbed airflow caused by rotors and flapping wings and the nonlinearity and uncertainty increased by morphing components impede the identification of a globally accurate model of these vehicles. Additionally, complex components can increase the...

Salt Marshes are a coastal ecosystem which have numerous benefits as coastal defense such as wave attenuation and can adapt to sea level rise. Wave flume tests, using a scale model of a cross-section of a salt marsh adjacent to a dike, were conducted in the Hydraulic Laboratory, to quantify the effectiveness of such a salt marsh system as flood...

There is a very popular fable, dating back to the early 1800s, about three little pigs that build their houses of different materials and a wolf that tries to catch them by blowing down their houses. From the three houses built from straws, sticks or bricks, only the house made out of bricks withstands the blow of the wolf. Although the moral of...
