There is a very popular fable, dating back to the early 1800s, about three little pigs that build their houses of different materials and a wolf that tries to catch them by blowing down their houses. From the three houses built from straws, sticks or bricks, only the house made out of bricks withstands the blow of the wolf. Although the moral of...

Context. The existence of accreting supermassive black holes of up to billions of solar masses at early cosmological epochs (in the context of this work, redshifts z & 6) requires very fast growth rates that are challenging to explain. The presence of a relativistic jet can be a direct indication of activity and accretion status in active...

We present total intensity and linear polarization images of OJ 287 at 1.68 GHz, obtained through space-based very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) observations with RadioAstron on April 16, 2016. The observations were conducted using a ground array consisting of the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) and the European VLBI Network (EVN)....

Mountains are important suppliers of freshwater to downstream areas, affecting large populations in particular in High Mountain Asia (HMA). Yet, the propagation of water from HMA headwaters to downstream areas is not fully understood, as interactions in the mountain water cycle between the cryo-, hydro- and biosphere remain elusive. We review...

There is still a limited number of high-redshift (z > 3) active galactic nuclei (AGNs) whose jet kinematics have been studied with very long baseline interferometry (VLBI). Without a dedicated proper motion survey, regularly conducted astrometric VLBI observations of bright radio-emitting AGN with sensitive arrays can be utilized to follow...

Climate change is a pressing global crisis with far-reaching consequences, demanding the rapid advancement of clean energy technologies and effective carbon capture methods to mitigate Carbon Dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) emissions. Carbon capture technologies offer a crucial pathway for capturing, storing, and reusing CO<sub>2</sub>, thus...

Thermoplastic composites enable new manufacturing techniques such as conduction welding to make the aviation industry more sustainable, while at the same time, provide great benefits to cost-efficient high-volume production. One of the benefits of welding is that it reduces the amount of mechanical fasteners required. Fastener-free joining also...

Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are advanced materials that consist of a ceramic matrix reinforced with a high-strength, high-stiffness material, such as carbon fibers. They offer excellent thermal and chemical stability while exhibiting low weight and exceptional mechanical properties. A novel CMC material is the C/C-SiC produced with 2/2...

Our society is increasingly digital, and its processes are increasingly digitalized. As an emerging technology for the digital society, graphs provide a universal abstraction to represent concepts and objects, and the relationships between them. However, processing graphs at a massive scale raises numerous sustainability challenges; becoming...

Increased demand for less invasive procedures has accelerated the adoption of Intraluminal Procedures (IP) and Endovascular Interventions (EI) performed through body lumens and vessels. As navigation through lumens and vessels is quite complex, interest grows to establish autonomous navigation techniques for IP and EI for reaching the target...

Dwarf galaxies are characterized by a very low luminosity and low mass. Because of significant accretion and ejection activity of massive black holes, some dwarf galaxies also host low-luminosity active galactic nuclei (AGNs). In a few dwarf AGNs, very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) observations have found faint non-thermal radio...

Bed joint reinforced repointing is a retrofitting technique for unreinforced masonry structures that is commonly applied in the Netherlands to repair settlement-induced damage. Using this technique, the bed joints of masonry walls are reinforced with steel rebars that are embedded in a high strength repair mortar. Due to the increase of...

The work presented in this paper investigates the ability of continuum damage models to accurately predict matrix failure and ply splitting. Two continuum damage model approaches are implemented that use different stress–strain measures. The first approach is based on small-strain increments and the Cauchy stress, while the second approach...

Most physical phenomena be it mechanical, chemical or biological are inherently nonlinear in nature. In fact, it is the linear phenomenon that is the exception rather than the rule. By harnessing these nonlinearities one can obtain far greater information about the underlying physics and develop more sensitive and efficient devices. This is...

Atherosclerosis is a lipid-driven inflammatory disease of the arteries. It causes<br/>increased thickness of the intima layer of an artery, due to build-up of, among<br/>others, lipid deposits. Eventually, this could cause rupture of the blood vessel’s<br/>wall, leading to thrombus forming and possibly to clinical events. Clinically, the<br/...

NGC 4395 is a dwarf galaxy at a distance of about 4.3 Mpc (scale: ∼0.021 pc mas-1). It hosts an intermediate-mass black hole (IMBH) with a mass between ∼104 and ∼105 solar masses. The early radio observations of NGC 4395 with the very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) network, High Sensitivity Array (HSA), at 1.4 GHz in 2005 showed that its...

Skin contraction is an important biophysical process that takes place during and after recovery of deep tissue injury. This process is mainly caused by fibroblasts (skin cells) and myofibroblasts (differentiated fibroblasts which exert larger pulling forces and produce larger amounts of collagen) that both exert pulling forces on the...

In the time domain, the radio sky in particular along the Galactic plane direction may vary significantly because of various energetic activities associated with stars, stellar, and supermassive black holes. Multi-epoch Very Large Array surveys of the Galactic plane at 5.0 GHz enabled the finding of a catalogue of 39 variable radio sources in...

Plane-stress and shell macromodels are often preferred to analyze masonry structures because of their numerical efficiency. However, they often misestimate the hysteretic behavior of the structures. Additionally, due to the nature of smeared cracks, the cracks may be diffused. This article proposes a new orthotropic model, which focuses on...

The pond is a low-lying ground intended to retain or detain both stormwater. In the past, building ponds was a common way to keep fresh water for livestock and irrigation. Due to the rapid urban development and the emergence of centralized water conservancy facilities, the traditional ponds have largely disappeared. One of the crucial examples...
