To align with the objective of the European Green Deal [46] policy of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the construction sector must transition to a circular built environment. Most of the waste in the Netherlands is related to construction and demolition waste, with the industry accounting for approximately 35% of CO<sub>2<...

This study investigates the application of generative models for synthetic data generation in pathway optimization experiments within the field of metabolic engineering. Conditional Variational Autoencoders (CVAEs) use neural networks and latent variable distributions to generate new, plausible data samples. We adapt this model by conditioning...

Solving Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) in engineering such as Navier-Stokes is incredibly computationally expensive and complex. Without analytical solutions, numerical solutions can take ages to simulate at great expense. In order to reduce this cost, neural networks may be used to compute approximations of the solution for use during...

This paper presents a comprehensive exploration of a novel method combining Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Neural Networks (NN) to efficiently solve Partial Differential Equations (PDEs), a fundamental challenge in modeling a wide range of real-world phenomena. Our research extends the work of Bhattacharya et al. by focusing on PCA for...

Improved productivity and a higher level of sustainability are modern day challenges faced by the building industry that are currently being and could further be solved by a higher degree of automation. Freeform architecture is still in its infancy but the demand for it is growing. Reusable building elements are a rarity in freeforms. This...

Using the South African Revenue Service and National Treasury firm-level panel data for 2009–2017, this paper investigates how trade related to the global value chain (GVC) affects the performance of manufacturing firms in South Africa. The paper uses extant classifications of internationally traded products to identify different categories...

Activated carbon is employed for the adsorption of organic micropollutants (OMPs) from water, typically present in concentrations ranging from ng L<sup>−1</sup> to μg L<sup>−1</sup>. However, the efficacy of OMP removal is considerably deteriorated due to competitive adsorption from background dissolved organic matter (DOM), present at...

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...

Hydrogen peroxide plays a key role in many environmental and industrial chemical processes. We performed classical Molecular Dynamics and Continuous Fractional Component Monte Carlo simulations to calculate thermodynamic properties of H<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2</sub> in aqueous solutions. The quality of the available force fields for H<sub>2</sub>O...

Integrated language, science and technology (ILS&amp;T) instruction is a complex task for primary school teachers that requires professional development. Task-centered educational approaches such as the four-component instructional design (4C/ID) model are well suited for the development of complex professional skills. This article describes the...

Given the rising popularity of foam concrete (FC) for both structural and insulating purposes, evaluating the feasibility of recycling after its lifespan is crucial in the context of the growing emphasis on sustainable building practices. One approach to recycling FC incorporating microencapsulated phase change material (MPCM) involves...

This paper deals with the face plate component in steel joints and addresses the full characterization of the nonlinear behaviour of the face plate component. An equivalent beam strip model is proposed that tackles the connection of a beam to the column web of open I-sections in a minor axis joint or the face of tubular columns, covering...

<br/>This article introduces a single-supply balun-first three-way parallel Doherty power amplifier (PA) tailored for millimeter-wave (mm-wave) fifth-generation (5G) applications. It incorporates a bandwidth enhancement technique that widens the operational frequency range, enhances broadband power back-off (PBO) efficiency, and reduces...

In this study, we present an efficient and flexible adjoint-based framework for history matching and forecasting geothermal energy extraction at a large scale. In this framework, we applied the Principal Component Analysis to reduce the parameter space for representing the complex geological model. The adjoint method is implemented for...

Unilateral Condylar Hyperplasia (UCH) is a rare and complex asymmetric growth disorder affecting the mandible. The disease is characterized by growth resembling hyperactivity in one of the condyles. Treatment of UCH requires a personalised approach that aims to stop the progression and/or correct the deformity caused by the disease. The choice...

Aero engines are critical components in aviation, relying on thermodynamics to convert fuel energy into thrust. Maintenance of these engines constitutes a significant portion of operational costs. Gas path analysis (GPA) is essential for engine health management, relying on performance modeling to simulate engine operations accurately. This...

Following the European Green Deal, transport- related emissions must be reduced by 90% in 2050. While aviation contributes to a significant share of these emissions, the substitution of flights for rail travel is often considered to achieve a reduction in emissions of greenhouse gasses. Mostly, travelers consider this option when the full trip...

Objective: This work focuses on the feasibility of using Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) to differentiate between cancerous and healthy tissues in real-time alongside the GI tract. This is to see whether it is possible to support surgeons when taking biopsies, or to see if it is possible to make biopsies obsolete with EIS. Methods: The...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a devastating disease with a high mortality rate, poor prognosis, and a mere 7.7% 5-year survival rate [1] compared to 65% for all cancer types [2]. Approximately 80% of patients are diagnosed at the advanced stage [3], for which only palliative chemo(radio)therapy remains as treatment option. However,...

A building block pyramid is designed used to evaluate a composite aircraft structure, combining tests and analyses, using stiffened panels, single-stringer specimens and coupons. Failure in these structures can be caused by postbuckling-induced skin-stringer separation, which is complex, involving matrix cracks, fibre bridges, and delamination...
