Aircraft LRU (Line Replaceable Unit) MROs (Maintenance, Repair Organization) struggle to meet service levels. To stay competitive, literature describes two strategies; increasing contracted fleet size and not reaching projected repair turn around times. Besides these two strategies, literature does not describe the use of triple echelon order...

The objective of this project is to devise and develop a design tool that lets the user explore different force flows during conceptual design, with the goal to inform different geometries, thereby realizing an integrated design process. Key characteristics that this tool must incorporate to be successful are defined as feedback (the ability to...

Background: Polymeric gels, an important class of soft matter systems, are widely used for commercial applications particularly in food products (i.e., saturated fat replacement). The efficiency of the product for a particular application can be directly linked to its rheological signature. However, the rheological imprint of these structured...

Current predictors of fuel consumption are typically based on computer simulations or data collections in real traffic, where the route and vehicle type are not under the researcher's control. Here, we predicted fuel consumption using test track data, an approach that allowed for location-specific predictions. Ninety-one drivers drove a total...

Compressive strength is the most significant metric to evaluate the mechanical properties of concrete. Machine learning (ML) methods have shown promising results for predicting compres-sive strength of concrete. However, at present, no in-depth studies have been devoted to the influence of dimensionality reduction on the performance of...

A three-dimensional (3D) geometric model of a bridge plays an important role in inspection, assessment and management of the bridge. As most bridges were built after the second world war, 3D bridge models are rarely available. A recent development in laser scanning offers a cost-efficient method to capture dense, accurate 3D topographic data...

Aqueous solution is one of the main factors of asphalt pavement disease. However, the physicochemical changes of asphalt are ambiguous during immersion in different aqueous solutions. This study evaluated the physicochemical properties of asphalt under the action of different aqueous solutions to further understand the mechanism of moisture...

To simulate the airflow through a wind farm across a wide range of atmospheric conditions, microscale models (e.g., large-eddy simulation, LES, models) have to be coupled with mesoscale models, because microscale models lack the atmospheric physical processes to represent time-varying local forcing. Here we couple mesoscale model outputs to a...

Most digital models of the equine distal limb that are available in the community are static and/or subject specific; hence, they have limited applications in veterinary research. In this paper, we present an articulatable model of the entire equine distal limb based on statistical shape modeling. The model describes the inter-subject...

<b>Introduction:</b> Carotid atherosclerosis is characterized by the build-up of the so-called plaque tissue in the wall of the carotid artery. The rupture of carotid plaques can lead to acute manifestations, including ischemic stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA). The mechanism responsible for rupture is not yet unravelled, complicating...

The ability to control and adapt joint stiffness is essential in human motor control. Both control loops on the spinal as well as cortical level are likely to play a role in this regulation. However, the cortical mechanisms involved with the online adaptive control of joint stiffness remain largely unresolved. This study aimed at identifying...

When designing for structural performance, the geometry of the load-bearing elements is crucial for achieving the required stability. This is even more important in structural forms, such as shells and arches that are predominantly designed by their structural requirements. However, the typical design process starts with the design by the...

Learning to program is not a easy task, as has become evident from the abundance of research papers concerning the subject. One of the learning barriers of learning a new programming language is understanding their error message, as coding errors have to be resolved before the programmer can run the code or add new functionality to the program....

Principal component analysis (PCA) is commonly used in the fields of computer graphics and geometry processing for constructing subspaces that represent the variability present in a dataset. Examples of such datasets are configurations of a non-rigid object, poses of a deformable character or snapshots from a simulation. By applying PCA to the...

Due to the developments of microfluidics, Organ-On-Chip (OOC) technology is developing rapidly in recent years. Microflow plays a vital role in OOC applications, thus a microfluidic platform that can generate high-quality flow is always needed. However, the existing OOC systems contain bulky peripheral components, incompact design and low...

Nowadays, video surveillance and motion detection system are widely used in various environments. With the relatively low-price cameras and highly automated monitoring system, video and image analysis on road, highway and skies becomes realistic. The key process in the analysis is to separate the useful information such as moving foreground...

The Netherlands has the vision to be completely circular by 2050 cutting its raw material consumption to half by 2030. To reduce the raw material consumption, materials in use must be reused and nothing should be wasted. However, the construction industry is far from reaching this goal. It is traditional in the EOL treatment of the building. The...

Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a mathematical instrument beneficial for its dimension reduction whilst keeping the most important data. Due to its advantages, PCA is chosen to handle a substantial amount of data. In this thesis two questions are answered: what variables influence a pupil's attainment test score using linear regression and...

Explicit rules for safety verification of open cold-formed lightweight beam-to-tubular column joints are missing in the current EC3-1-8. By developing economical detailing, with design guidance based on Eurocodes, the market share for new buildings, renovation and for additional storeys on existing buildings will increase. Within the...

With the increasing amounts of data generated from various sources, companies are now aware of the data-driven applications more than ever. In the built environment, building or infrastructural projects are handed over as end-product and these projects are complex. Thus, this data disturbance requires multiple ways of project management...
