The main bearing is a critical wind turbine drivetrain component, and its failure can cause the turbine shutdown and expensive repair. As the main bearing degrades, its temperature increases, indicating health deterioration of the component. Various methods proposed in the literature employ physics-based normal behavior models (NBMs) using...

Physical human-robot cooperation (pHRC) has the potential to combine human and robot strengths in a team that can achieve more than a human and a robot working on the task separately. However, how much of the potential can be realized depends on the quality of cooperation, in which awarenes of the partner’s intention and preferences plays an...

In this work, we propose a method of processing patient input on discomfort level during robot shoulder physiotherapy into discomfort maps. These maps represent the patient's discomfort distribution throughout the range of motion of the shoulder, interpretable by both physiotherapists and robots. This method consists of three parts: the patient...

The Landing Platform Dock vessel is mainly designed to support amphibious operations in which landing operations play an important role. For operating landing craft the vessel has a well dock at the stern, designed to station several landing craft. Landing operations are restricted by the motions of the Landing Platform Dock vessel and by the...

Accurate fatigue assessment of material plagued by defects is of utmost importance to guarantee safety and service continuity in engineering components. This study shows how state-of-the-art semi-empirical models can be endowed with additional defect descriptors to probabilistically predict the occurrence of fatigue failures by exploiting...

On-dose authentication (ODA) enhances security by incorporating customized molecular or micro-tags into each pill, preventing counterfeit products in genuine packages. ODA's security relies on tag non-replication and non-reverse engineering. Combining ODA with graphical Physical Unclonable Functions (PUF) promises maximum security. PUF uses...

Motion is all around us, the universe is full of moving matter and this motion is surprisingly predictable. The field of science and engineering that studies time-dependent motion in the presence of forces is called Dynamics. In this book we will introduce the core concepts in dynamics and provide a comprehensive toolset to predict and analyse...

Background: Financial incentives are a promising tool to help people increase their physical activity, but they are expensive to provide. Deposit contracts are a type of financial incentive in which participants pledge their own money. However, low uptake is a crucial obstacle to the large-scale implementation of deposit contracts. Therefore,...

Introduction: Changes in health-related quality of life (HRQoL) during the diagnostic and treatment trajectory of high-grade extremity soft-tissue sarcoma (eSTS) has rarely been investigated for adults (18–65 y) and the elderly (aged ≥65 y), despite a potential variation in challenges from diverse levels of physical, social, or work-related...

Physical model tests have been performed to study static stability of rock-armoured mild slopes. Current stability design formulae for steeper rock-armoured slopes focus on plunging and surging waves. Slopes of 1:6 and milder usually have more spilling breakers which decreases the load. Also, on mild slopes displaced rocks more often remain...

Micro- and nanoplastics (MNPs) are attracting increasing attention due to their persistence and potential ecological risks. This review critically summarizes the effects of photo-oxidation on the physical, chemical, and biological behaviors of MNPs in aquatic and terrestrial environments. The core of this paper explores how photo-oxidation...

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) have gained traction in recent years. A major non-functional quality of CPS is performance since it affects both usability and security. This critical quality attribute depends on the specialized hardware, simulation engines, and environmental factors that characterize the system under analysis. While a large body...

People with a physically demanding job have an unhealthy disbalance in occupational and leisure-time physical activity (PA). We aimed to understand which contextual factors influence this disbalance, and explore opportunities for lifestyle interventions that could restore this disbalance. We applied a contextmapping study with six production...

Discussions of intelligence in the built-environment began in the late 1960s and early 1970s [1]–[7]. They belonged to a broader technical and technological discourse, engaged across a variety of domains and disciplines, to explore potential opportunities entailed by the Information Age. During this nascent period, and partly due to the novelty...
