Sufficient housing supply is one of the most significant issues in the Dutch housing market. The Dutch government aims to realise 15.000 dwellings a year by transforming vacant commercial real estate. However, a discrepancy can be noted between the number of buildings that developers have been willing to transform in the past decade and what the...

This paper presents a thorough numerical investigation focused on optimizing the efficiency of quantum-well intermediate-band solar cells (QW-IBSCs) based on III-nitride materials. The optimization strategy encompasses manipulating confinement potential energy, controlling hydrostatic pressure, adjusting compositions, and varying thickness. The...

Mg and its alloys are promising biodegradable materials for orthopedic implants and cardiovascular stents. The first interactions of protein molecules with Mg alloy surfaces have a substantial impact on their biocompatibility and biodegradation. We investigate the early-stage electrochemical, chemical, morphological, and electrical surface...

One of the major technological challenges in achieving circularity within the built environment is the disassembly of multi-material systems at the end of their useful life. This is especially true for façade systems, which have become more complex to improve operational performance. As efforts to reduce embodied carbon in façade systems...

Introduction: Over the past two decades deep brain stimulation (DBS) has emerged as an important therapeutic option for Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, the current DBS programming method, monopolar review (MPR), is time-consuming, requires highly trained personnel and causes discomfort for patients. This study aimed to predict the optimal...

Swarm robotics (SR) is an emerging field of research that utilizes a swarm of robots that work together as a team to solve complex problems. One such challenge in SR is the exploration of unknown environments to find multiple targets. This problem finds applications in various domains, such as archaeology, underground exploration, signal source...

The building industry is one of the most resource-demanding and polluting industries in the world. Therefore there is a need to apply the circular economy principles within the industry enabling the transition towards a circular built environment. This transition requires the reuse of building components. However current practice shows that only...

The climate crisis and resource scarcity have compelled industries to adopt new environmental and circular standards. The Netherlands has set a goal of achieving a fully circular economy by 2050, with a 50% reduction in the use of primary raw materials by 2030. In the circular built environment, circularity strategies like reuse are being...

Indonesia has recently made a target to shift to more sustainable and renewable energy sources through its energy transition commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2060. It is widely reported in various literature that the country has significant solar energy potential. At the moment of writing, the current solar PV in construction,...

Various potential flow methods with different assumptions are available to quantify the efficiency increase and thrust provided by a swirl recovery vane (SRV). In this paper, thrust coefficients and efficiency results obtained by different potential flow methods for the same SRV geometry at different advance ratios are presented. The methods...

Navigation systems in an Autonomous Vehicles (AV) can be divided into two parts: a path planning block which takes in the environmental data and rules to design a collision-free obstacle and a vehicle control and tracking block which generates actuator inputs for the AV to follow the reference path generated by the path planning block. Each task...

exploitative energy production to meet the demand (Our World in Data, 2021). The current energy system causes climate change, pollution, and pressure on space (Our World in Data, 2021) (Withagen, 1994) (KNMI, 2020)(NOS, 2017). The energy transition begins to take shape, companies are investing in large-scale wind farms at sea, and people are...

This letter investigates the stability properties of the soft inverted pendulum with affine curvature - a template model for nonlinear control of underactuated soft robots. We look at how changes in physical parameters affect stability and equilibrium. We give conditions under which zero dynamics corresponding to a collocated choice of the...

The ability to convert reciprocating, i.e., alternating, actuation into rotary motion using linkages is hindered fundamentally by their poor torque transmission capability around kinematic singularity configurations. Here, we harness the elastic potential energy of a linear spring attached to the coupler link of four-bar mechanisms to...

In this paper, we consider traces at initial times for functions with mixed time-space smoothness. Such results are often needed in the theory of evolution equations. Our result extends and unifies many previous results. Our main improvement is that we can allow general interpolation couples. The abstract results are applied to regularity...

Genomes of four Streptomyces isolates, two putative new species (Streptomyces sp. JH14 and Streptomyces sp. JH34) and two non thaxtomin-producing pathogens (Streptomyces sp. JH002 and Streptomyces sp. JH010) isolated from potato fields in Colombia were selected to investigate their taxonomic classification, their pathogenicity, and the...

Biogas production from anaerobic sludge digestion plays a central role for wastewater treatment plants to become more energy-efficient or even energy-neutral. Dedicated configurations have been developed to maximize the diversion of soluble and suspended organic matter to sludge streams for energy production through anaerobic digestion, such...
