From the perspective of wheelchair sports practice, there is a growing need to provide feedback on power output. Power can be used to monitor athletes' fitness and fatigue levels, thereby preventing overtraining and potential injuries, to individualize and analyze training programs, and it is also an objective measure of effort or intensity....

The use of non-destructive tests for assessing the material status of concrete structures in the Netherlands remains relatively uncommon, despite the growing demand for the preservation of existing structures under the VenR policy of Rijkswaterstaat. Skepticism towards NDTs is reflected in the scarcity of documented case studies in publicly...

The cycling industry is influenced by the approval of the tire pressure control system in competitive cycling. This system allows real-time adjustments to the tire-road interaction during races. The total rolling losses is the resistance resulting from tire-road interaction, incorporating resistance due to tire deformation and the dissipation of...

Extensive studies have been performed on the effectiveness of scour protection against scour erosion progression. But there is little research to date evaluating the effect of scour protection on vertical resistance behaviour of monopile foundations. This paper investigates the influence of scour protection on the vertical loading behaviour of...

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...

This paper aims to assess the influence of geometrical imperfections and residual stresses on the reliability of the stability design rules for steel columns in Eurocode 3 considering a full probabilistic approach and further validate the new buckling curves in the scope of the ongoing revision of the Structural Eurocodes. A reliability...

This article introduces an online condition monitoring strategy that utilizes a transient heat pulse to detect package thermal performance degradation. The metric employed is the temperature-dependent transient thermal impedance "Zth(t, Tamb)."The proposed methodology offers quantitative insights into package thermal performance degradation...

Metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) undergo fatigue degradation under high thermal and electrical stresses. This process results in changes in their parasitic parameters, which can be detected using frequency domain reflectometry (FDR). Frequency domain impedance analysis is employed to characterize the various...

Fatigue cracks in the stiffener-to-deck plate connections of orthotropic bridge decks, initiating from the weld toe or root and propagating into the stiffener or weld throat, are experimentally and numerically studied. A statistical analysis of the structural stress is carried out using the experimental data. Automatic welded specimens show a...

Enterococci are gut microbes of most land animals. Likely appearing first in the guts of arthropods as they moved onto land, they diversified over hundreds of millions of years adapting to evolving hosts and host diets. Over 60 enterococcal species are now known. Two species, Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium, are common...

Strain energy release rate calculations for various cases of delaminations emanating from matrix cracks are developed and used to predict the onset of delaminations and their growth size as a function of applied tension and shear loads in composite laminates. The method determines the matrix crack spacing, the delamination onset load, the...

Steel Orthotropic Bridge Decks (OBDs) are widely used in long-span and movable bridges. Fatigue resistance analysis plays an important role in the design or assessment of OBDs. One possible fatigue failure is the crack initiating from the weld root of stiffener-to-deck plate connections at crossbeams. A full-scale experimental investigation...

This study proposes a new concept for an on-demand drug releasing device intended for integration into additively manufactured (i.e., 3D printed) orthopedic implants. The system comprises a surface with conduits connected to a subsurface reservoir used for storage and on-demand release of antimicrobial agents, covered with a cap that prevents...

An important performance determinant in wheelchair sports is the power exchanged between the athlete-wheelchair combination and the environment, in short, mechanical power. Inertial measurement units (IMUs) might be used to estimate the exchanged mechanical power during wheelchair sports practice. However, to validly apply IMUs for mechanical...

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a leading cause of permanent vision loss worldwide. It refers to irreversible retinal damage caused due to elevated glucose levels and blood pressure. Regular screening for DR can facilitate its early detection and timely treatment. Neural network-based DR classifiers can be leveraged to achieve such screening in...

Continental intraplate volcanic systems, with their location far from plate tectonic boundaries, are not well understood: the crustal and lithospheric mantle structure of these systems remain enigmatic and there is no consensus on the mechanisms that cause melt generation and ascent. The Cenozoic saw the development of numerous volcanic...

Concrete is clearly one of the most predominant-used material in both residential and non-residential structures across Europe (Peled and Fishman, 2021). A reinforced concrete (RC) structure is expected to satisfy criteria for serviceability, structural integrity, and stability over its designed operational lifespan, without significant loss of...

In addressing the impact of climate change on the corrosion of RC buildings, it is crucial to distinguish between two adaptation strategies. The first refers to measures integrated during the design phase for new structures. The second involves strategies implemented during the service phase to enhance the resilience of existing structures. This...

With the global concerns on antibiotic resistance (AR) as a public health issue, it is pivotal to have data exchange platforms for studies on antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB) and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in the environment. For this purpose, the NORMAN Association is hosting the NORMAN ARB&ARG database, which was developed...

Although resource management schemes and algorithms for networks are well established, we present two novel ideas, based on graph theory, that solve inverse all shortest path problem. Given a symmetric and non-negative demand matrix, the inverse all shortest path problem (IASPP) asks to find a weighted adjacency matrix of a graph such that...
