One of the crucial aspects of BIM is the data rich environment connecting project information from different sub-sectors. (Mesároš et al., 2020). Therefore, developing models with consistent and trustworthy building data has gained significant importance in the industry. In contrast, incorrect or incomplete building data in a model could result...

Mammoet is developing a new type of system for the transportation of offshore power cables. With this system the cables can be spooled, stored, and transported both on land and on heavy transport vessels in a more efficient way. There are a few uncertainties for the system, mainly about the loads on the carousel and the behavior of the cable...

Eliciting user needs from mass online reviews is playing a significant role in the product iteration process. Efficient user needs elicitation does achieve considerable benefits for maintaining higher competitiveness and a speedier lifecycle. However, there is inevitably an online review scarcity about new products due to the short time on...

Two types of elastomer/plastic compound-modified bitumen were developed by means of incorporating the reactive elastomeric terpolymer (RET) into the plastic (high-density polyethylene HDPE or recycled polyethylene RPE) modified bitumen and adding the wax residue (WR) into the bitumen/elastomer (crumb rubber CR or styrene–butadiene–styrene SBS)...

Railway track transitions are zones where there is an abrupt change in the track-ground structure. They are often the location of rapid track deterioration, which means more frequent track maintenance is needed compared to plain line tracks. With the aim of reducing maintenance, modern transition zone designs use tapered stiffness earthwork...

Arguably, a desirable feature of a learner is that its performance gets better with an increasing amount of training data, at least in expectation. This issue has received renewed attention in recent years and some curious and surprising findings have been reported on. In essence, these results show that more data does actually not...

This article presents a piezoelectric energy harvesting (PEH) interface circuit using a new self-bias-flip with the charge recycle (SBFR) technique without employing any additional energy reservoir. Traditional designs, including synchronous-switch harvesting on inductor (SSHI), synchronous-switch harvesting on capacitor (SSHC), synchronous...

The geo-technical quest to couple technical, environmental, and economic innovation, has increased recent attention towards bio-inspired soil strengthening techniques. This thesis presents a proof-of-concept for a coupled clay inhibition and bio-cementation treatment tested in sand-bentonite, referred to as Bio2Cementation. Fine particles are...

Vehicle routing problems have been studied for more than 50 years, and their in- terest has never been higher. It is partly due to their significant economic impact. Decreasing the traveling time, certainly for big organizations, can save costs in the range of millions of dollars and increase their service quality. Moreover, the wide variety of...

Code Completion is advancing constantly, with new research coming out all the time. One such advancement is CodeFill, which converts source files into token sequences for type prediction. To train the CodeFill model, a lot of source files are needed which take a long time to convert before training can begin. Converting the file the end-user is...

Stress analysis is an all-pervasive practice in engineering design. With displacement-based finite element analysis, directly-calculated stress fields are obtained in a post-processing step by computing the gradient of the displacement field—therefore less accurate. In enriched finite element analysis (EFEA), which provides unprecedented...

Background: Poor communication to GPs at hospital discharge threatens patient safety and continuity of care, with reliance on discharge summaries that are commonly written by the most junior doctors. Previous quality improvement efforts have largely focused on adherence to standardised templates, with limited success. A lack of understanding...

Motivated by applications in model-free finance and quantitative risk management, we consider Frechet classes of multivariate distribution functions where additional information on the joint distribution is assumed, while uncertainty in the marginals is also possible. We derive optimal transport duality results for these Frechet classes that...

Since Covid-19, digital health interventions (DHIs) have been embraced as never before. The pandemic led to many new challenges, including the patient experience in digital health care delivery. In this literature study, we identified and synthesized factors that impact patient experience in digital health (dPEx), and reviewed the methods and...

The rapid development of the economy has promoted the growth of freight transportation. The truck service areas on expressways, as the main places for truck drivers to rest, play an important role in ensuring the driving safety of trucks. If these service areas are constructed densely or provide a plentiful supply of parking areas, they are...

The novel use of double austempering treatments in a multiphase steel to refine and homogenize the final microstructure and thus improve the material strength have been studied in the 3.3Mn-0.17C-1.6Al-0.23Mo-0.22Si alloy. The microstructural features developed after conventional isothermal austempering treatments at 450 °C and 400 °C were...

Production of mature oil fields emits significant amount of CO<sub>2</sub> related to circulation and handling of large volumes of gas and water. This can be reduced either by (1) using a low-carbon energy source and/or (2) reducing the volumes of the non-hydrocarbon produced/injected fluids. This paper describes how improved oil recovery...

The Polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar (PolSAR) systems use electromagnetic radiations of different polarizations in the microwave frequency to collect the scattering information from targets on the Earth. Nevertheless, as with any other electronic device, the PolSAR systems are also not ideal and subjected to distortions. The most...

Mice and rats can rapidly move their whiskers when exploring the environment. Accurate description of these movements is important for behavioral studies in neuroscience. Whisker tracking is, however, a notoriously difficult task due to the fast movements and frequent crossings and juxtapositionings among whiskers. We have recently developed...
