While probabilistic constellation shaping (PCS) enables rate and reach adaption with finer granularity [1] (Cho and Winzer, 2009), it imposes signal processing challenges at the receiver. Since the distribution of PCS-quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) signals tends to be Gaussian, conventional blind polarization demultiplexing algorithms...

In the last decades our usage of the Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum has intensified a lot due to the increasing number of mobile devices. The spectrum is getting crowded and new communication alternatives might become necessary in the future. One such alternative is Visible Light Communication (VLC),which uses the visible light spectrum instead...

Gas Source Localization (GSL) is a challenging field of research within the robotics community. Existing methods vary widely and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Existing GSL evaluations vary in environment size, wind conditions, and gas simulation fidelity, thereby complicating objective comparison between algorithms. They also lack...

PWN is responsible for supplying sufficient quantities of high-quality water to its customers. The growing population and the effects of climate change, such as heat waves and droughts, are straining the capacity of the water supply network, especially during dry and warm periods when water demand increases. A significant portion of the drinking...

This thesis explores spatial strategies for achieving sustainable industry transition in the dispersed urbanised areas of the Greater Bay Area (GBA) in China. Since 1978, urbanisation in the GBA has accelerated, significantly expanding beyond metropolitan regions. These dispersed areas, described as the Desakota by Terry McGee, encompass a...

The chemistry of ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) is one of the main factors affecting its reactivity. Knowing the composition of GGBFS used in aged concrete may help understand its past performance and estimate remaining service life. It is well known that GGBFS generally react slower than cement clinker. This thesis proposes that...

Fradera Soler, Pau (author)
Pollution in urban environments is increasingly becoming a major concern for our societies which, together with the increasingly powerful capabilities provided by computational fluid dynamics (CFD), has made pollution dispersion a common topic of research during the last two decades. Several factors are relevant to the dispersion of pollutants...

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation, which researchers have been warning about for years. During the pandemic, researchers studied several indicators using different approaches to assess IAQ and diverse ventilation systems in indoor spaces. To provide an overview of these indicators and...

Path dispersion (the spatial distribution of vehicular paths) is an important feature of traffic flow inside intersections and differs from traffic flow running along traffic lanes at road segment, especially under conflicting movements. The path dispersion reflects the operational features of traffic flow and is related to driving behaviour,...

This article explores the potential of vibro-acoustics to detect physical ageing of plastic pipes. For this purpose, two different topics are combined: the ability of vibro-acoustics to estimate the storage modulus of a plastic pipe, and the sensitivity of the estimated storage modulus to changes due to ageing. Concerning the first topic, a...

This work aims to improve the flexural behaviour of unidirectional fibre-reinforced laminates by means of coupling an optimization procedure for quasi-isotropic configurations with the design space opened by dispersed-ply orientations. The design approach consists of finding suitable alternatives to traditional laminates (with fibre...

The corona pandemic underlined a lack of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and<br/>ventilation. Consequently, to limit the spread of the virus, researchers explored several indicators that, through different approaches, assess IAQ and ventilation performance in indoor spaces. This paper gives an overview of those indicators and assessment methods used to...

This article proposes a receiving device in which arbitrary input signals are subject to pre-detector processing for the subsequent implementation of the idea of compressing broadband modulated pulses with a matched filter to increase the signal-to-noise ratio and improve resolution. For this purpose, a model of a dispersive delay line is...

We investigated the applicability of Silica encapsulated, superparamagnetic DNA particles (SiDNAmag) in determining aquifer hydraulic parameters at different ionic strengths (1 mM, 5 mM, and 20 mM phosphate buffer) of injection suspension. Thereto, in a homogeneous, unconsolidated sand tank we pulse - injected two uniquely sequenced SiDNAmag...

The United Nations’ Paris Agreement forces nations and industries to transition from conventional hydrocarbon-based energy sources to more sustainable and less-emitting alternatives such as geothermal energy. Geothermal doublets are used to provide a source of green heat to greenhouses and residential buildings. In industry, reservoir simulators...

Overcoming the intermittency problem of renewable energy is an issue that has to be addressed in order to achieve an efficient energy system. Hydrogen has been gaining interests, as green energy carrier, which is included in the energy transition plans of not only the Netherlands, but worldwide. Due to its physical characteristics, large scale...

This article presents a set of close approximations to model an elastic half-space supporting an embankment, which are evaluated in the context of phase velocity spectra, i.e. in terms of the normal wave propagation modes of the embankment-half-space system. The ultimate, intended target of these approximations is in the modeling of...

This work describes a modelling approach to SARS-CoV-2 dispersion based on experiments. The main goal is the development of an application integrated in Ansys Fluent to enable computational fluid dynamics (CFD) users to set up, in a relatively short time, complex simulations of virion-laden droplet dispersion for calculating the probability...

Detailed validation of air quality models is essential, but remains challenging, due to a lack of suitable high-resolution measurement datasets. This is particularly true for pollutants with short-scale spatial variations, such as nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>). While street-level air quality model chains can predict concentration...

We report on the application and comparative assessment of two rational turbulence modelling approaches for the computer simulation of air flow and pollutant dispersion in real urban environment: a stand-alone unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes eddy-viscosity model (URANS), and its blend with Large-eddy simulations (LES) in a hybrid...
