Breast cancer, being the most common cancer among females, is nowadays routinely diagnosed using X-ray mammography. Though this technique has proven its effectiveness in many cases, X-ray mammography has some disadvantages like reduced diagnostic sensitivity for dense breasts, need for strong breast compression and inability to assess tissues at...

Deep-water siliciclastic systems are of great societal relevance as their deposits<br/>in subsurface store hundreds of billions of barrels of hydrocarbons in different sedimentary basins worldwide. The sediment density flows that form these systems, termed turbidity currents, are capable of destroying subsea installations, such as...

Introduction: Virtual reality (VR)-based interventions, wearable technology and text mining hold promising potential for advancing the way in which military and Veteran mental health conditions are diagnosed and treated. They have the ability to improve treatment protocol adherence, assist in the detection of mental health conditions, enhance...

Stable boundary layers (SBLs) are a common aspect of the earth’s atmosphere and are characterized by a stable density stratification in which the temperature increases with height. This typically occurs during the night, resulting in a short-lived stable boundary layer, or persistently throughout the polar winter, resulting in a longlived stable...

A bottom-up building energy modelling at the urban scale based on Geographic Information System and semantic 3D city models can provide quantitative insights to tackle critical urban energy challenges. Nevertheless, incomplete information is a common obstacle to produce reliable modelling results. The residential building heating demand...

Humans always wanted to go faster and higher than their own legs could carry them, leading them to invent numerous types of vehicles to move fast over land, water and air. As training how to handle such vehicles and testing new developments can be dangerous and costly, vehicle motion simulators were invented. <br/>Motion-based simulators in...

Flight simulators, or Flight Simulation Training Devices (FSTDs), offer great benefits in terms of safety and cost associated with pilot training and certification. To warrant uniform certification standards and to prevent adverse pilot training, (sub)system fidelity requirements are imposed by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) and European...

Cancer is known as one of the leading causes of death in the world with difficult<br/>diagnose at early stages, poor prognosis and high mortality. Animal-based<br/>experiments and clinical trials have always been the main approach for cancer<br/>research, albeit they may have limitations and ethical issues. Mathematicalmodeling<br/>as an...

Foam-assisted chemical flooding (FACF) is a novel enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methodology that combines the injection of a surfactant slug, to mobilize previously trapped residual oil, with foam generation for drive mobility control, thus displacing the mobilized banked oil. The main goal of this study concerns the understanding of oil...

In the humanitarian response, multiple decision-makers (DMs) need to collaborate in various problems, such as locating temporary relief distribution centres (RDCs). Several studies have argued that maximising demand coverage, reducing logistics costs and minimising response time are among the critical objectives when locating RDCs after a...

There are many ways to simulate handrim wheelchair propulsion in the laboratory. Ideally, these would be able to, at least mechanically, simulate field conditions. This narrative review provides an overview of the lab-based equipment used in published research and critically assesses their ability to simulate and measure wheelchair propulsion...

High entropy alloys (HEAs) in the hexagonal close-packed (hcp) phase usually show poor mechanical properties. We demonstrate here, by use of ab initio simulations and detailed experimental investigations, that the mechanical properties can be improved by optimizing the microstructure. In particular we design a dual-phase HEA consisting of a...

The accurate description of the behavior of fluids in nanoporous materials is of great importance for numerous industrial applications. Recently, a new approach was reported to calculate the pressure of nanoconfined fluids. In this approach, two different pressures are defined to take into account the smallness of the system: the so-called...

Predator–prey dynamics have been suggested as simplified models of stratocumulus clouds, with rain acting as a predator of the clouds. We describe a mathematical and computational framework for estimating the parameters of a simplified model from a large eddy simulation (LES). In our method, we extract cycles of cloud growth and decay from...

A parallel and scalable stochastic Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method applied to large-scale dense bubbly flows is reported in this paper. The DSMC method is applied to speed up the bubble-bubble collision handling relative to the Discrete Bubble Model proposed by Darmana et al. (2006) [1]. The DSMC algorithm has been modified and...

Accurate prediction of temperature and pressure distribution is essential for geothermal reservoir exploitation with cold water re-injection. Depending on our knowledge about the heterogeneous structure of the subsurface, the reservoir development scheme can be optimized and the overall lifetime of the geothermal field can be extended. In...
