Olfactory learning in <i>Drosophila </i>larvae exemplifies efficient neural processing in a small-scale network with minimal power consumption. This system enables larvae to anticipate important outcomes based on new and familiar odor stimuli, a process crucial for survival and adaptation. Central to this learning mechanism is the olfactory...

Threshold signatures play a crucial role in the security of blockchain applications. An efficient threshold signature can be applied to enhance the security of wallets and transactions by enforcing multi-device-based authentication, as this requires adversaries to compromise more devices to recover the key. Additionally, threshold signatures can...

Quad-planes are a type of vehicle which combine the hovering capability of quadcopters and the forward flight efficiency of winged aircraft. Flight tests conducted on a dual-axis tilting-rotor quad-plane, designed to fly without aerodynamic surfaces, observed that the quad-plane suffered from insufficient roll authority during fast, forward...

Finite Element Methods (FEMs) are widely employed for damage simulation in composites, with the Cohesive Zone Model (CZM) being particularly favored for its robustness and scalability. Despite the CZM's mesh-dependent nature, the Discontinuous Galerkin Cohesive Zone Model (DG/CZM) formulation allows for relatively arbitrary crack propagation...

This thesis investigates a novel load alleviation technique known as mini-tabs, small devices placed on the upper surface of wings to reduce lift. Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations were conducted to analyze the impact of geometrical properties on mini-tab performance in reducing the load on a wing.<br/><br/>The initial...

With the increased use of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in modern cars, the  field of surface contamination saw a resurgence. To keep the various sensors working properly it is of utmost importance to keep them clean and free of contamination. One way to achieve this is to ensure they are mounted in areas where they can be kept free...

The advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) has led to an increased demand for both a greater volume and quality of data. In many companies, data is dispersed across multiple tables, yet AI models typically require data in a single table format. This necessitates the merging of these tables and the selection of optimal features for the model...
