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,...

Investing in low-carbon technologies, including light-duty vehicles, is a strategy to decarbonize the residential sector and private mobility. This work aims to assess the parameters driving the economic convenience of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) for a household, and what are the economic implications of BEV adoption on the total cost of...

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol characterises itself as a major hub in Europe. Its network is not sustainable with only the Dutch catchment area. Instead, it relies on transfer passengers. When new tax regimes and policies are implemented to combat the environmental impacts of the airport, a change in passenger flows could affect Schiphol’s network...

This study presents a novel approach for evaluating the effects of dynamic disturbances on optical performance using sensitivity analysis. The computation of optical performance for perturbed optical systems is too costly with state-of-the-art analysis software when applied in the use case for the optimization of the optomechanical interface,...

The use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) has seen a breakthrough in clinical research for personalized treatments (Hamburg &amp; Collins, 2010.) Despite the potential advantages of vast EHR data available, constraints of privacy and legislation hinder its use (Rieke et al., 2020.) Health data exists in an interconnected healthcare system ...

To gain more insight into the performance of state-of-the-art Static Output Feedback (SOF) controller synthesis methods for H∞-control, quantitative comparisons are made between Lyapunov methods and well-known established non-smooth optimization methods, i.e. Hinfstruct and HIFOO. Three methods were deemed to be the most promising to compete and...

Ecological Urbanism and Water Sensitive Urban Design have a central contribution to make in protecting and caring for people, nature and water in cities but readings of Urban Political Ecology evidence how ecological metaphors in urban design can easily translate into discriminatory urban development processes. This paper posits that for UPE...

The accurate determination of the transfer function of ultrasound transducers is important for their design and operational performance. However, conventional methods for quantifying the transfer function, such as hydrophone measurements, radiation force balance, and pulse-echo measurements, are costly and complex due to specialized equipment...

Generative AI enables automated, effective manipulation at scale. Despite the growing general ethical discussion around generative AI, the specific manipulation risks remain inadequately investigated. This article outlines essential inquiries encompassing conceptual, empirical, and design dimensions of manipulation, pivotal for comprehending...

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...

Ultrasonic flowmeters face unique challenges since, in addition to withstanding high fluid pressures, they have to avoid crosstalk, which is the interaction of the signals traveling through the fluid and the solid pipe. To avoid the crosstalk, which leads to poor accuracy or complete loss of the required signal, we develop a mounting...

As a result of more stable wind conditions and the depletion of near-shore locations, wind farms are moving farther offshore into deeper waters, challenging the current limits of offshore heavy-lift operations. This paper presents and verifies a novel frequency-domain framework to perform extensive site-specific analysis, of floating...

In this study, we combined finite element method (FEM) based on Ansys and Noesis Optimus software to investigate the effect of bump structures and loading conditions on the electromigration properties of solder bumps in WLCSP. A numerical model considering current density, vacancy concentration, stress and temperature was utilized to calculate...

The non-CO<sub>2</sub> climate impact of aviation strongly relies on the atmospheric conditions at the time and location of emissions. Therefore, it is possible to mitigate their associated climate impact by planning trajectories to re-route airspace areas with significant climate effects. Identifying such climate-sensitive regions requires...
