In developing countries with increased industrialization, much research is carried out in order to recover the maximum ammonium from the environment. One of the methods to recover ammonium is Bipolar Membrane Electrodialysis (BPMED), a chemical-free technology that enables recovery and purification of the corresponding acid and base by the...

With the increasing popularity of Large Language Models (LLMs), fine-tuning them has become increasingly computationally expensive. Parameter Efficient Fine-Tuning (PEFT) methods like LoRA and Adapters, introduced by Microsoft and Google, respectively, aim to reduce the number of trainable parameters, with the current state-of-the-art combining...

With climate change posing increasing risks, the Advisory Council for Aviation Research and Innovation in Europe (ACARE) aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 75% and NOx emissions by 90% per passenger kilometer by 2050, compared to a baseline aircraft from 2000. The ARENA project addresses this by developing a waste heat recovery system using...

We are surrounded by all kinds of sounds at all times. What we hear varies with the physical environment and our position. Room impulse responses (RIRs) characterize the effect of the environment on a sound produced by a source. A first goal of this dissertation is to analyze RIRs and investigate how to extract environmental information from...

The term hybrid modeling refers to the combination of parametric models (typically derived from knowledge about the system) and nonparametric models (typically deduced from data). Despite more than 20 years of research, over 150 scientific publications (Agharafeie et al., 2023), and some recent industrial applications on this topic, the...

Bed permeability is a crucial factor in blast furnace performance which depends on the material distribution achieved through charging. Since a homogeneous bed of pellet and sinter is recommended, it is crucial to understand whether segregation of the pellet-sinter mixture occurs during charging. The Discrete Element Method is useful in this...

Distracted driving poses one of the most significant risks to road safety. The current study aims to provide a deeper understanding of the factors affecting the severity of distracted driving crashes in New York City and to explore the temporal stability in the effects of different variables on crash outcomes in 2016 to 2019 period by...

The ollie is the base aerial human–board maneuver, foundational to most modern skateboarding tricks. We formulate and solve an optimal control problem of a two-dimensional simplified human model and a rigid body skateboard with the objective of maximizing the height of the ollie. Our solution simultaneously discovers realistic human-applied...

This paper studies the relationship between undirected (unrooted) and directed (rooted) phylogenetic networks. We describe a polynomial-time algorithm for deciding whether an undirected nonbinary phylogenetic network, given the locations of the root and reticulation vertices, can be oriented as a directed nonbinary phylogenetic network....

Short pitch corrugation has been a problem for railways worldwide over one century. In this paper, a parametric investigation of fastenings is conducted to understand the corrugation formation mechanism and gain insights into corrugation mitigation. A three-dimensional finite element vehicle–track dynamic interaction model is employed, which...

The dynamics of metastructures, incorporating both conventional and internally coupled resonators, are investigated to enhance vibration suppression capabilities through a novel mathematical framework. A close-form formulation and a transfer function methodology are introduced, integrating control system theory with metastructure analysis,...

Meta-heuristic optimisation algorithms are high-level procedures designed to discover near-optimal solutions to optimisation problems. These strategies can efficiently explore the design space of the problems; therefore, they perform well even when incomplete and scarce information is available. Such characteristics make them the ideal...

Closed-form solutions are presented for calculating the reflection coefficient with corresponding uncertainty of metrology-grade 3.5 mm air-dielectric coaxial transmission lines for use as reference standards in S-parameter measurements up to 33 GHz. The closed-form solutions allow the calculation of the sensitivity coefficients required for...

This study estimates mixed logit models taking into account heterogeneity in means and partially constrained parameters in order to explore possible shifts within parameters over time to study factors influencing bicyclist injury severity outcomes. Separate statistical models are estimated for two bicyclist helmet-wearing scenarios (helmet...

Self-healing concrete has great potential to enhance the durability of concrete structures without significantly increasing the initial costs. Among the self-healing approaches, vascular self-healing cementitious composite is capable of supplying healing agents to the cracked region in a continuous way or multiple times. However, the use of...

Fibre-reinforced laminated composites are constructed layer-by-layer, allowing their material properties to be easily tailored relative to their isotropic counterparts (metallic alloys). Moreover, a composite structure with variable stiffness (VS) can be made by spatially tailoring stiffness across a laminate. This permits better load...

In the near future, travelling in vehicles will no longer be in regular vehicles, but in automated vehicles. The share of automated vehicles is predicted to increase significantly within 20 years. Passengers in automated vehicles will engage in non-driving tasks, such as sleeping, reading, working or just otherwise spending time on their phone....

The startup Rocket Factory Augsburg (RFA) is developing the RFA ONE orbital launch vehicle. A significant hurdle for its closed-loop guidance is the need to fully deplete the third stage for insertion during the first flight, which results in lengthy burn-arcs and complexity not managed properly by traditional guidance algorithms. Additionally,...
