Aviation is an important contributor to anthropogenic climate change. As indirect greenhouse gases, nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO + NO2) add to the Effective Radiative Forcing (ERF) induced by aircraft emissions. This work addresses a better understanding of emission mitigation by investigating dependencies between engine parameters and emitted...

Governments are looking more and more to invest in renewable energy sources due to the energy transition that is currently taking place. One of the many renewable energy sources is wind energy which is increasingly positioned at sea. Wind turbines in deep parts of the ocean can be placed on floating structures which are often moored to the sea...

When considering air quality, notably in South America, it seems that we are falling behind more developed regions in exacerbating the issue. This shortfall serves not just as observation, but as a warning, as air quality problems here are rapidly escalating. Nevertheless, by examining how other countries have addressed similar issues, we can...

Accurately determining the early Post-Mortem Interval (PMI), the period shortly after death, is critical for reconstructing the timeline of suspected crimes. The PHOEBE model, a new thermodynamic finite-difference model that simulates body cooling, significantly improves PMI estimations but is highly sensitive to the thermal conductivity of the...

The increase in non-linear loads of modern electronics raises concerns over power quality. Additionally, existing power-quality analyzers are expensive and not intended for household use. This thesis aims to develop a single-phase, user-friendly power-quality analyzer using a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with an emphasis on low cost and class S...

Hydropeaking is a widely applied management practice in the generation of hydropower. When the demand in electricity is high, the operator of a hydropower plant rapidly increases released discharges to meet this demand. Vice versa, when the demand is low, no or less water is released. However, while river regulation practices offer valuable...

The integration of wind and solar energy through power electronic converters has introduced new challenges to High Voltage (HV) equipment in the electrical power system. Switchgear, cables, and transformers are now subject to higher dV/dt stress and complex wave shapes due to solid-state switching. This poses a threat to the reliability of the...

In response to pressing global challenges like climate change, rapid population growth, and an urgent need for sustainable infrastructure, cities face an immediate and crucial necessity to transition swiftly toward an integrated approach to managing urban water resources. This shift is not merely an option but an imperative, driven by the...

In this study, an infrared system is developed for accurate measurements of surface temperature and heat transfer on fast moving targets. The system was designed for the Oxford Turbine Research Facility, a world-leading experimental facility delivering highly engine representative, scalable heat transfer results for aerospace research....

Unsteady inlet flow distortion can influence the stability and performance of any propulsion system, in particular for more novel, short and slim intakes of future aero-engine configurations. As such, the requirement for measurement methods able to provide high spatial resolution data is important to aid the understanding of these flow fields...

Background: While there is increasing evidence on the benefits of PROMs in cancer care, the extent of routine collection and use of PROMs in clinical cancer practice across Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) is unknown. This study examined the prevalence and characteristics of PROMs use in routine clinical cancer care in ANZ. Methods: An online...

In this paper, the full calibration chain of FMCW radar with simultaneous transmission of two orthogonally polarized orthogonal waveforms is considered. Specifically for this type of polarimetric radar, compensation of signals’ biases and equalization of the amplification gains of the parallel polarimetric channels in the receiver are jointly...

Flooding is expected to increase due to climate change, urbanisation, and land use change. To address this issue, Nature-Based Solutions (NBSs) are often adopted as innovative and sustainable flood risk management methods. Besides the flood risk reduction benefits, NBSs offer co-benefits for the environment and society. However, these co...

To analyze inherent and diverse patterns within line-based public transport daily delay occurrences, we introduce a data-driven exploratory analysis focused on the spatial-temporal distribution of these delays. Our approach relies on the utilization of the image pattern recognition technique and k-means clustering algorithm. We extract daily...

In wheelchair sports, there is an increasing need to monitor mechanical power in the field. When rolling resistance is known, inertial measurement units (IMUs) can be used to determine mechanical power. However, upper body (i.e., trunk) motion affects the mass distribution between the small front and large rear wheels, thus affecting rolling...

Traffic interactions between merging and highway vehicles are a major topic of research, yielding many empirical studies and models of driver behaviour. Most of these studies on merging use naturalistic data. Although this provides insight into human gap acceptance and traffic flow effects, it obscures the operational inputs of interacting...

This paper builds Wasserstein ambiguity sets for the unknown probability distribution of dynamic random variables leveraging noisy partial-state observations. The constructed ambiguity sets contain the true distribution of the data with quantifiable probability and can be exploited to formulate robust stochastic optimization problems with out...

Angular momentum, kinetics, and energetics, including total mechanical energy and its rate of change in relation to power exchange, are important quantities when analyzing human motion in sports, physical labor, and rehabilitation. Inertial measurement units (IMU)-based motion capture (MOCAP) systems provide a portable solution for the...

Bitumen fatigue resistance is critical to determine the overall fatigue performance and service life of asphalt pavements. However, the mechanisms responsible for fatigue damage of bitumen have previously not been well understood. Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation has recently emerged as a powerful computer-aided numerical technique to model...
