Governments’ attempts to link the provision of welfare services to (more) responsible self-conduct of citizens (i.e. responsibilization) is seen as a distinctive feature of the post-welfare state. Responsibilization often requires welfare receivers to comply with specific duties or behavioural patterns (i.e. conditionality). Except for UK-based...

In the chain of steel production, the blast furnace converts iron ore into liquid iron. The hearth of the blast furnace, where the liquid metal is collected and tapped off, is filled with relatively large coke particles (D ~ 20 – 100 mm). The meandering flow of hot liquid metal in the coarse-grained porous medium in the hearth causes erosion of...

In this paper we discuss scheduling of semi-cyclic discrete-event systems, for which the set of operations may vary over a limited set of possible sequences of operations. We introduce a unified modeling framework in which different types of semi-cyclic discrete-event systems can be described by switching max-plus linear (SMPL) models. We use...

Background: Mixed infections of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and antibiotic heteroresistance continue to complicate tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis and treatment. Detection of mixed infections has been limited to molecular genotyping techniques, which lack the sensitivity and resolution to accurately estimate the multiplicity of TB infections. In...

Variable Renewable Energy Sources (VRES) are characterized by intensive land-use and variable production. In existing optimization models that minimize the total cost of the energy system, location-specific VRES production profiles are often used to estimate VRES potential, but land-use and land cover aspects have been largely ignored. In this...

This paper reports on an experimental study of mixed convection flow and heat transfer in a vented, differentially side-heated cubical cavity filled with a porous medium consisting of relatively large solid low-conductivity spheres. Rayleigh numbers and Reynolds numbers are varied over the ranges 6 × 10<sup>6</sup> &lt; Ra &lt; 7 × 10<sup>7<...

Bicycles are gaining popularity as a mode of transport resulting in a mixed bicycle–car traffic situation on urban roads. Cyclists however, are hardly included in traffic flow models which complicates the design of safe and congestion-free traffic situations. This work introduces class-specific speed functions based on two variables, being space...

High performance and commercially attractive mixed-matrix membranes were developed for H<sub>2</sub>/CO<sub>2</sub> separation via a scalable hollow fiber spinning process. Thin (~300 nm) and defect-free selective layers were successfully created with a uniform distribution of the nanosized (~60 nm) zeolitic-imidazole framework (ZIF-8) filler...

We report numerical simulations of assisting and opposing mixed convection in a side-heated, side-cooled cavity packed with relatively large solid spheres. The mixed convection is generated by imposing a movement on the isothermal vertical walls, either in or opposite to the direction of natural convection flow. For a fluid Prandtl number of...

Recently warm mix asphalt (WMA) technologies have been introduced to rubberized asphalt mixtures to decrease the required construction temperatures and to alleviate the hazardous gas emissions. Rubberized asphalt pavements combining with WMA have the potential to improve the long-term pavement performance. This study aims to investigate the...

The dewatering of algal culture requires coagulation of the algal cells. However, the coagulation in a continuous operation is slowed down through the excretion of Soluble Algal Products (SAPs). Electrocoagulation (EC), already utilized as a coagulation technique, has been investigated for its effects on SAPs characterizations. A mixed...

In this paper we study the dimension of splines of mixed smoothness on axis-aligned T-meshes. This is the setting when different orders of smoothness are required across the edges of the mesh. Given a spline space whose dimension is independent of its T-mesh's geometric embedding, we present constructive and sufficient conditions that ensure...

Riparian zones are important buffer zones for streams as they are hotspots of nitrate transformation and removal in agricultural catchments. However, mixing of water from different sources and various transformation processes can complicate the quantification of nitrate turnover in riparian zones. In this study, we analyzed nitrate...

Responsible innovation and ethics of technology increasingly take emotions into consideration. Yet, there are still some crucial aspects of emotions that have not been addressed in the literature. In order to close this gap, we introduce these neglected aspects and discusses their theoretical and practical implications. We will zoom in on the...

This paper presents the enriched Galerkin discretization for modeling fluid flow in fractured porous media using the mixed-dimensional approach. The proposed method has been tested against published benchmarks. Since fracture and porous media discontinuities can significantly influence single- and multi-phase fluid flow, the heterogeneous and...

One of the main drawbacks of crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) is the storage stability issue. The storage instability of CRMB impedes its further application. This study aims to develop a robust methodology to evaluate the storage stability of CRMB binders using both mechanical and morphological tests. The effects of rubber contents (0, 5...

This paper demonstrates how the critical strain energy density in the delamination tip vicinity may be used to explain the physics of delamination growth under mixed mode I/II. A theory previously proposed to physically relate mode I and mode II delamination growth is further extended towards describing the onset of mixed mode I/II...

The impact of developers' experience on several development practices has been widely investigated in the past. One of the most promising research fields is software testing, as many researchers found significant correlations between developers' experience and testing effectiveness. In this paper, we aim at further studying this relation, by...

The nature of housing management has often been contested between two main orientations, business-like (i.e. economic efficiency) and social welfare (i.e. social support), reflecting the dual identity of social housing providers, as both private enterprises and welfare promoters. Research shows that housing management is particularly susceptible...

At the brink of the introduction of self-driving vehicles, only little is known about how potential users perceive them. This is especially true for self-driving vehicles deployed in public transport services. In this study, the relative preferences for a trip with a self-driving bus is assessed compared to a trip with a regular bus, based on...
