Assign to each vertex of the one-dimensional torus i.i.d. weights with a heavy-tail of index τ−1>0. Connect then each couple of vertices with probability roughly proportional to the product of their weights and that decays polynomially with exponent α>0 in their distance. The resulting graph is called scale-free percolation. The goal of...

Background<br/>The operating room (OR) department is one of the most energy-intensive departments of a hospital. The majority of ORs in the Netherlands have an air-handling installation with an ultra-clean ventilation system. However, not all surgeries require an ultra-clean OR.<br/><br/>Aim<br/>To determine the effect of reducing the air change...

The visibility graph has gained traction as a method for time series analysis. Through this method, it is possible to detect or quantify non-linear behavior in a myriad of fields and applications. This thesis explores the variations of visibility graphs, describes how they are used in literature and investigates what lies at the foundation of...

Negotiation Support Systems (NSSs) can provide help based on the preference setting (domain, issue weights, issue ranking, strategies, etc.) of the users of the systems. However, sometimes the users of the systems might make mistakes in the preference setting. With wrong preferences, the NSSs might provide suggestions that conflict with the...

Exploring the influence of settlement patterns on the landscape fragmentation in woodlands and biological reserves is key to achieving ecologically sustainable development. In this research, we chose the Nanshan National Park in Hunan Province, China, as a case study, to explore the influence mechanisms. First, we identified the biological...

Free-field site response analysis is a standard technique used to predict soil deposit dynamic response and liquefaction susceptibility. Such analyses are typically carried out by implementing periodic boundaries to guarantee the same speed of the dynamic waves travelling across them. However, when using random fields to consider the impact of...

The rejuvenation efficiency of aged bitumen is the main concern when developing rejuvenating agents. It is necessary to develop a method to assess the efficiency of rejuvenators using rheological parameters in the whole frequency region. To this end, the 2S2P1D micromechanics model is adopted to fit the entire G∗ master curves of various...

The relaxation behavior affected by aging and rejuvenation plays a crucial role in its low-temperature cracking potential of bitumen. However, there are limited studies on the relaxation performance of rejuvenated bitumen under different rejuvenation conditions. This paper aims to propose critical indicators to assess the rejuvenation efficiency...

A graph G is said to be q-Ramsey for a q-tuple of graphs (H<sub>1</sub>,..., H<sub>q</sub>), denoted by G →q (H<sub>1</sub>,..., H<sub>q</sub>), if every q-edge-coloring of G contains a monochromatic copy of Hi in color i for some i ε [q]. Let sq(H1,..., Hq) denote the smallest minimum degree of G over all graphs G that are minimal q-Ramsey...

We use a numerical-analytic technique to construct a sequence of successive approximations to the solution of a system of fractional differential equations, subject to Dirichlet boundary conditions. We prove the uniform convergence of the sequence of approximations to a limit function, which is the unique solution to the boundary value...

This paper aims at assessing the effect of dry friction on the dynamic behaviour of a damped mechanical system subject to harmonic forcing. Previous work on friction damped systems highlighted that not including other forms of damping in the dynamic analysis can lead to unrealistic results such as the presence of infinite resonances. In this...

Due to the satisfactory property and high productivity, heat-cured concretes have been widely used in engineering practice. However, heat curing process also brings some drawbacks that are detrimental to the long-term property of this material. To address this issue, lightweight fine aggregate (LWFA) was employed to provide internal curing ...

Despite the recent advances in artificial tissue and organ engineering, how to generate large size viable and functional complex organs still remains as a grand challenge for regenerative medicine. Three-dimensional bioprinting has demonstrated its advantages as one of the major methods in fabricating simple tissues, yet it still faces...

Today, high-viscosity modified asphalt (HVMA) is widely used in drainage asphalt pavements. However, due to its high construction temperature, HVMA is prone to thermal oxidative aging, which reduces its life cycle and increases the maintenance costs of asphalt pavements. In this study, the effects of warm-mix additives on the physical,...

To meet increasing safety and performance demands in air traffic control (ATC), more advanced automated systems will be introduced to assist human air traffic controllers. Some even foresee complete automation, with the human as a supervisor only to step-in when automation fails. Literature and empirical evidence suggest that supervising...

Metropolis II aims to provide insights in what is needed to enable high-density urban air operations. It does this by investigating the foundation for U-space U3/U4 services. The final goal is to provide a unified approach for strategic deconfliction, tactical deconfliction, and dynamic capacity management. Highly-dense operations in...

Air traffic control (ATC) is a complex and demanding job reserved for highly-trained professionals. Training ATC candidates is challenging as trainees are subjectively assessed by instructors who are biased by their own ways of working. As an effort to determine control expertise objectively, this study employed clustering techniques on an...

Recent developments in quantum annealing have shown promising results in logistics, life sciences, machine learning and more. However, in the field of geophysical sciences the applications have been limited. A quantum annealing application was developed for residual statics estimation. Residual statics estimation is a highly non-linear problem...

The environmental impact of our current consumption pattern on the earth is growing. The linear economy is accelerating the environment pollution and increasing the use of resources. If we want to be able to gradually move towards a circular system it is vital to include in this strategy the way products are being cared for, which is Product...
