The rolling contact of elastic bodies (upper body and lower body) can be analyzed with the Hertz theory and the Kalker’s model. It is generally believed that the width of the contact area should be much smaller than the characteristic size of each elastic body, to ensure that the half-space assumption is valid. However the definition of “much...

Learning from rewards generated by a human trainer ob- serving the agent in action has been demonstrated to be an effective method for humans to teach an agent to perform challenging tasks. However, how to make the agent learn most efficiently from these kinds of human reward is still under-addressed. In this paper, we investigate the effect of...

Coastal vegetation is efficient in damping incident waves even in storm events, thus providing valuable protections to coastal communities. However, large uncertainties lie in determining vegetation drag coefficients (C<sub>D</sub>), which are directly related to the wave damping capacity of a certain vegetated area. One major uncertainty is...

Low dimensional semiconducting structures with strong spin-orbit interaction (SOI) and induced superconductivity attracted great interest in the search for topological superconductors. Both the strong SOI and hard superconducting gap are directly related to the topological protection of the predicted Majorana bound states. Here we explore the...

A methodology for the determination of a critical size of surface defects, above which RCF can initiate, has been developed and demonstrated with its application to the passive type of squats under typical Dutch railway loading conditions. Such a methodology is based on stress evaluation of transient rolling contact at the defects, for which...

The participation of individuals in multi-layer networks allows for feedback between network layers, opening new possibilities to mitigate epidemic spreading. For instance, the spread of a biological disease such as Ebola in a physical contact network may trigger the propagation of the information related to this disease in a communication...

Complex frictional rolling contact and high-frequency wheel dynamic behavior make modeling squeal greatly challenging. The falling-friction effect and wheel mode-coupling behavior are believed to be the two main mechanisms that generate unstable wheel vibration and the resulting squeal noise. To rigorously consider both mechanisms in one...

Due to random characteristics of system parameters and excitations, the dynamic assessment and prediction for the train-track-bridge interaction systems become rather complex issues needing to be addressed, especially considering the longitudinal inhomogeneity and uncertainty of dynamic properties in physics and correspondingly their temporal...

Learning from rewards generated by a human trainer observing an agent in action has been proven to be a powerful method for teaching autonomous agents to perform challenging tasks, especially for those non-technical users. Since the efficacy of this approach depends critically on the reward the trainer provides, we consider how the...

Ag is a promising catalyst for the production of carbon monoxide (CO) via the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>ER). Herein, we study the role of the formate (HCOO<sup>−</sup>) intermediate *OCHO, aiming to resolve the discrepancy between the theoretical understanding and experimental performance of Ag. We show that...

The modeling of dynamic frictional rolling contact is crucial for accurately predicting behavior and deterioration of structures under dynamic interactions such as wheel/rail, tire/road, bearings and gears. However, reliable modeling of dynamic frictional rolling contact is challenging, because it requires a careful treatment of friction and...

The interaction of a gravity wave with a steady uniform current is discussed in this paper. Analysis indicates there is no dominant difference in the results obtained when employing either the equation of conservation of wave energy flux or the equation of conservation of wave action flux. Numerical calculations of the wave length change by...

The main objective of Workpackage 5 is to use numerical simulation of wave overtopping in order to solve the problem of suspected scale effects. A second, related, objective is to improve existing codes in such a way as they are able to simulate wave overtopping in a reliable way. The final, single, objective is to numerically model long waves...
