Structural design for unconventional aircraft can be quite challenging and could undergo<br/>many iterations until a solution is found for all load-cases such as static sizing, stability and<br/>crashworthiness. Ultimately, all of the design aspect are integrated in the earliest design<br/>changes for which Topology Optimization (TO) could...

New insights into the landing behavior of bumblebees show an adaptive strategy where the optical flow expansion of the landing target is step-wise regulated. In this article, the potential benefits of this approach are studied by replicating the landing experiment with a quadrotor. To this end, an open-loop switching method is developed,...

Introduction: Migraine is associated with enhanced visual sensitivity during and outside attacks. Processing of visual information is a highly non-linear process involving complex interactions across (sub)cortical networks. In this exploratory study, we combined electroencephalography with bi-sinusoidal light stimulation to assess non-linear...

A novel Flux Limited Splitting (FLS) non-linear Finite Volume (FV) method for families of linear Control Volume Distributed Multi Point Flux Approximation (CVD-MPFA) schemes is presented. The new formulation imposes a local discrete maximum principal (LDMP) which ensures that the discrete solution is free of spurious oscillations. The FLS scheme...

The convergence of expectation-maximization (EM)-based algorithms typically requires continuity of the likelihood function with respect to all the unknown parameters (optimization variables). The requirement is not met when parameters comprise both discrete and continuous variables, making the convergence analysis nontrivial. This paper...

Despite the increasing use of non-hydrostatic models in the study of wave processes in coastal regions, there is still limited understanding of the non-linear properties of the governing equations and how they improve with increased vertical resolution. In this study, the governing equations of the non-hydrostatic wave model SWASH are...

Europe’s historic masonry arch bridges are culturally and economically significant, but their long-term safety must be ensured. Scour effects are the most common cause of collapse, so it is necessary to carry out structural assessments to mitigate the risk and prevent potential failures. In this study, a metamodel-based method was used to...

The recent success of - and demand for - compliant mechanisms has increased rapidly within the micro-electromechanical systems-, aircraft-, spacecraft-, surgical-, and precision-instrument industries. Yet, even greater success may be achieved by overcoming the computational cost and instability of the mechanisms' design methodology. This...

Radar-tracking of low-observable targets such as drones suffers from low detection performance. In these type of applications, it is desirable to avoid data thresholding in order to preserve the weak target signal in the raw sensor data. This thesis considers the Multiple Object Tracking (MOT) problem in the context of radar Track-before-Detect ...

The main aim of this work was to develop methods to estimate quantitatively, and describe qualitatively, the non-linear behaviour of soft soil in intermediate-scale laboratory experiments. Previous works stated that non-linearity of the soil was found for environments involving a large impedance gradient in the near-surface, e.g., a shallow...

This work aims to achieve a softening moment-angle response by utilizing compliant parts. The approach uses the principle of contact release, which involves initially prestressed torsional bars arranged in series, separated by rigid bodies. By stepwise activation of the torsional bars, a softening behavior is achieved. Mechanical stops are...

Upon rotor loss, fault-tolerant quadrotors are subjected to a severe restriction of the set of attainable virtual controls, making them vulnerable to loss of control at high speed flight. Due to the high nonlinearity of the reduced attitude controller and incremental nature of the fault-tolerant controller, determination of the safe flight...

Small solar system bodies have received increasing scientific attention over the past decades. Studying their primitive origins can reveal important insights on the formation of planets, as well as the general evolution of the Solar System. Also their potential threat to life on Earth upon collision and their potential to act as stepping stones...

Flexural shear failure is a brittle failure mode that can occur in reinforced concrete (RC) beams without stirrups due to the combination of flexural and shear stresses. The failure mode begins with vertical flexural cracks at the bottom of the RC beam central span area due to flexural tensile stresses, followed by diagonal cracks. During...

The increase in online retail demand has stimulated automation in order picking systems, leading to new challenges and opportunities in task assignment and scheduling. In partially automated order picking systems, such challenges and opportunities exist regarding human factors implementation in the job-shop scheduling problem, an optimisation...

Understanding the factors that drive extreme water levels is key to an accurate assessment of flood hazard. The city of Venice has always been affected by flooding due to extreme water levels. In this study, we examine the factors driving and influencing extreme water levels in the Venice lagoon, aiming at deriving accurate extreme water level...

Historical quay walls constructed in unreinforced masonry are integral elements of many cities. Originally designed as gravity retaining walls, they are nowadays often subjected to the action of traffic loads as a result of vehicles travelling on roads constructed on their backfill. This paper presents a numerical analysis procedure for carrying...

Dynamic induction control is a wind farm flow control strategy that utilises wind turbine thrust variations to accelerate breakdown of the aerodynamic wake and improve downstream turbine performance. However, when floating wind turbines are considered, additional dynamics and challenges appear that make optimal control difficult. In this work...

Several studies investigated the precision of non-linear finite element analyses (NLFEA) to predict the shear capacity of beams or the punching capacity of slab-column connections. However, in the literature, there is little discussion regarding the results of NLFEA to predict the ultimate capacity and failure mechanism of slabs susceptible...

This paper presents the modular-multilevel-converter (MMC) control interoperability (IOP) and interaction within the High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC)-based power system. IOP is a crucial issue in the large-scale HVDC grid with different suppliers. To accommodate future multi-vendor HVDC grids developments, this article comprehensively...
