Two statistical post-processing approaches for estimation of predictive hydrological uncertainty are compared: (i) ‘dressing’ of a deterministic forecast by adding a single, combined estimate of both hydrological and meteorological uncertainty and (ii) ‘dressing’ of an ensemble streamflow forecast by adding an estimate of hydrological...

The observation of surface water bodies in all weather conditions and better knowledge about inundation patterns are important for water resource management and flood early warning. Microwave radiometers at 37 GHz were applied to observe and study the inundation pattern in large subtropical floodplains in China, i.e. the Poyang Lake and Dongting...

Understanding of hydroclimatic processes in Africa has been hindered by the lack of in situ precipitation measurements. Satellite-based observations, in particular, the TRMM Multisatellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) have been pivotal to filling this void. The recently released Integrated Multisatellite Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) project...

Printing of electronics has been gaining a lot of attention over the past decade as a low cost alternative to conventional electronic fabrication methods. A significant development in this area was the possibility to print a silicon precursor, polydihydrosilane, which can directly be transformed into polycrystalline silicon by an excimer laser...

Remote sensing imagery to monitor global biophysical dynamics requires the availability of thermal infrared data at high temporal and spatial resolution because of the rapid development of crops during the growing season and the fragmentation of most agricultural landscapes. Conversely, no single sensor meets these combined requirements. Data...

28 Dutch politicians and 10 top-level civil servants were interviewed about the way Dutch politicians use cost–benefit analysis (CBA). Various types of use were identified. Politicians use CBA: (1) When forming their opinion about the desirability of transport projects; (2) As political ammunition (opportunistic use); (3) To make themselves...

Urban travel times are rather variable as a result of a lot of stochastic factors both in traffic flows, signals, and other conditions on the infrastructure. However, the most common way both in literature and practice is to estimate or predict only expected travel times, not travel time distributions. By doing so, it fails to provide full...

We investigate the task of detecting speakers in crowded environments using a single body worn triaxial accelerometer. Detection of such behaviour is very challenging to model as people’s body movements during speech vary greatly. Similar to previous studies, by assuming that body movements are indicative of speech, we show experimentally, on...

Renewable energy sources are currently presented as an economically viable and environmentally safe option in the near future. A major constraint to the incorporation of wind and solar generation at large scale is the increase of variability in the power system. To assure the perpetual balance between power production and gross consumption a...

The performance of supercomputers is not growing anymore at the rate it once used to. Several years ago a break with historical trends appeared. First the break appeared at the lower end of worldwide supercomputer installations, but now it affects a significant number of systems with average performance. Power consumption is becoming the most...

While the consideration of functional and technical criteria, as well as a sense of coherence are basic requirements for solving a design problem; it is the ability to induce an intended quality of aesthetic experience that is the hallmark of design expertise. Expert designers possess a highly developed sense of design, or what in this research...

In the life-cycle cost analysis of a structure, the total cost of damage caused by external hazards like earthquakes, wind storms and flood is an important but highly uncertain component. In the literature, the expected damage cost is typically analyzed under the assumption of either the homogeneous Poisson process or the renewal process in...

Construction and demolition waste stream has generated news materials that may be reintroduced into new concrete, e.g. as recycled aggregates. The specific feature of recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) is the presence of hardened mortars influencing their behaviour. This study aims to distinguish processes that allow the complete separation and...

Abstract only - The existing construction waste recycling technologies and standards have been long applied in construction and demolition (C&D) waste recycling, mainly focused on the production and use of coarse recycled aggregates. Very few papers and process focus on the production of recycled sand although some previous results show that...

The waste management is a pregnant problematic in the European continent and in France too. The new paradigm called circular economy aims to be driver for the waste valorization. This objective is particularly applied in the civil engineering, the first generator of CDW (Construction and Demolition Waste) in France. In this context, except the...

At present, heterogeneous and fine-grained masonry rubble can only be recycled at very low level. To overcome this limitation, the material was employed as feedstock for the production of lightweight aggregates in a thermal process similar to that used in the manufacture of expanded clay and expanded slate. To that end, the fundamental...

The C2CA concrete recycling process consists of a combination of smart demolition, gentle grinding of the crushed concrete in an autogenous mill, and a novel dry classification technology called ADR to remove the fines. The` main factors in the C2CA process which influence the properties of Recycled Aggregates or Recycled Aggregate Concrete (RAC...

The concept of circular economy envisages that the highest utility and value of a material can be achieved through proper management along its all life cycle. Therefore reducing waste, through increased reuse and recycling, is a major driver to close the loop. Within this framework, construction and demolition waste, which constitutes up to 30%...

Responsible research and innovation (RRI) is an approach to research and innovation governance aiming to ensure that research purpose, process and outcomes are acceptable, sustainable and even desirable. In order to achieve this ambitious aim, RRI must be relevant to research and innovation in industry. In this paper, we discuss a way of...

Currently, research has been focusing on printing and laser crystallization of cyclosilanes, bringing to life polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) thin-film transistors (TFTs) with outstanding properties. However, the synthesis of these Sibased inks is generally complex and expensive. Here, we prove that a polysilane ink, obtained as a byproduct of...
