In the mining industry, sampling is an essential feature for the characterization of the material when all available material cannot be examined and only a small fraction of the total is evaluated. This study addresses how the minimum number of samples required to obtain a statistically accurate answer. This is important since less sample...

As of yet, there is no consensus on the role of the cloud radiative effect (CRE) on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS). This study focuses on the seasonal and temporal variability of the CRE, to better understand the response of the firn. To do so, we combine satellite observations, climate-model output, and a snow model. We separate short-term and...

This paper analysis the effects of soil moisture and vegetation water content (VWC) on total backscattering (σ_tot^0) simulated by water cloud model (WCM) throughout a growth cycle of maize at different frequencies, polarization modes, and incidence angles. Firstly, the bare soil backscatter (σ_soil^0) was simulated by Integral Equation Method ...

Shell is a popular form of structures as it can withstand relative large load with small thickness, which satisfies the aesthetic preference. Due to the curvatures of shell structures, shell can carry the distributed load as membrane forces instead of bending moments. Due to the small thickness, shell structures are highly sensitive to...

This report contains the conceptual lay-out for two possible expansions of the port of Bahía Blanca. To determine the best conceptual lay-outs, emphasis is drawn to understand the physical system to determine the effect of the expansion of the port on the natural system. The port of Bahía Blanca is situated at the end of a ria, or tidal basin....

In this report a first assessment is made of the impact of hurricanes on Saint Martin. Two bays at the east coast of Saint Martin, Baie Orientale and Baie de L'Embouchure, are studied under the conditions of hurricane Irma and Maria, which both have passed over in September 2017. During these hurricanes the bays were exposed to large wind speeds...

Concrete is used significantly in many structures since, the last few centuries. The need to maximize the concrete strength and utilize it's complete potential is the main focus of researchers even in today's modern age. It is thus, important to restore the existing structures apart from developing new materials and technology to build new...
