The variety of fruits and vegetables in today’s supermarkets is enormous. We investigated how color may lead consumers to anticipate differences in product properties. Forty volunteers rated the expected properties for carrots with different colors presented in pictures, together with their familiarity, purchase intention, and intended...

The study quantifies socio-economic benefits by the integration of wave energy in Greece, through resource examination, availability and deployment considerations. Greece has a large number of inhabited islands that mostly utilise conventional fuels for power generation, inclusion of wave energy will contribute both in terms of energy...

Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is used worldwide for treating organic waste and wastewater. Biogas produced can be converted using conventional energy conversion devices to provide energy efficient, integrated waste solutions. Typically, the electrical conversion-efficiency of these devices is 30–40% and is lowered due to biogas utilization instead...

This work reports an experimental study on supercritical water oxidation of quinoline. Moderate preheat temperature (420 °C–510 °C) and initial concentration (1 wt%–10 wt%) are selected to address the possibility of utilizing the heat released during the reaction, in order to realize high conversion rate at relatively low preheat temperature....

Electroporation or electropermeabilization is a technique that enables transient increase in the cell membrane permeability by exposing cells to pulsed electric field. However, the molecular mechanisms of the long-lived cell membrane permeability, which persists on the minutes time scale after the pulse treatment, remain elusive. Experimental...

Jack-ups are mobile structures widely employed in the offshore industry as drilling rigs or installation/maintenance vessels (e.g. for offshore wind farms). To assure safety at each location, site-specific assessment is required to predict the performance of the unit during installation and operations. The response of jack-ups to...

Solid-state bonding takes place during the extrusion process to produce a hollow metal profile through a porthole die, known as extrusion welding. Defective weld seams degrade extruded products in mechanical properties. The present research was aimed to determine the effect of extrusion condition on the longitudinal weld seam quality of a...

Abstract: Pressure fluctuations on the suction side of a NACA 0018 with trailing-edge add-ons are obtained from integration of time-resolved stereoscopic and tomographic particle image velocimetry data and compared to the ones computed from Lattice–Boltzmann simulations. The airfoil is retrofitted with solid and slitted serrated trailing...

The Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD) describes the relation between accumulation and speed in a zone. While theoretically expected, empirical validations have been done with limited numbers of floating car (e.g., taxi) data, and loop detectors. This paper will verify existence, shape and crispness of the MFD using Floating Car Data ...

The effect of curing conditions (sealed and unsealed) on the pore solution composition and carbonation resistance of different binary alkali-activated fly ash (FA) and ground granulated blast furnace slag (GBFS) pastes is investigated in this study. The studied mixtures were with FA/GBFS ratios of 100:0, 70:30; 50:50, 30:70, 0:100. Ordinary...

Increasing the adoption of energy efficient technologies by households is one of the formulated strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This paper presents a systematic review of agent-based modelling studies on the adoption of energy efficiency by households. It starts with an overview of barriers for adoption, of energy efficiency...

The temperature dependent luminescence properties of Yb2+ doped in NaI, SrI2 and LaI3 powders, prepared by a fast synthesis method involving the rapid melting and quenching in vacuum are reported. The 4f→5d excitation and emission spectra obtained for SrI2:Yb2+ were found to be in accordance with earlier work validating the synthesis methods. In...

In biochemical networks, the steady-state input-output influence is the sign of the output steady-state variation due to a persistent positive input perturbation; if the sign does not depend on the value of the strictly positive system parameters, the influence is structural. As recently shown for small perturbations, when the linearized...

Weathering of porous building materials caused by the crystallization of soluble salts is a ubiquitous problem in the built cultural heritage. Especially lime-based mortars are susceptible to salt decay, due to both their bimodal pore size distribution and low mechanical strength. The addition of crystallization modifiers to mortars during...

Ferrofluid pocket bearings are a type of bearing that are able to carry a load using an air pocket encapsulated by a ferrofluid seal. Previously designed ferrofluid bearings show the great potential of the stick-slip-free and low viscous friction bearings, however until now the load capacity is limited. In this article a method is presented...

Phosphate is a vital nutrient but its presence in surface waters even at very low concentrations can lead to eutrophication. Adsorption is often suggested as a step for reducing phosphate down to very low concentrations. Porous metal oxides can be used as granular adsorbents that have a high surface area and hence a high adsorption capacity....

Dynamic photovoltaic (PV) greenhouses integrate sustainable energy generation with plant cultivation, offering more possibilities of energy production and microclimate control by adjusting the sun-tracking angles. Previous studies on PV greenhouses barely paid attention to the PV partial shading effects, and rarely recorded the performance...

The European Union considers demand response to be an integral part of its future energy vision, in particular as a supporting mechanism for renewable resource integration. To achieve high demand response participation, the European Union recognises the need for adequate financial incentives for all consumers, especially for residential and...

This article analyzes ‘rules of the game’ that influence decision-making concerning the introduction of smart energy systems. Smart energy systems are considered as a solution to optimize and make energy systems ‘future-proof’. Their introduction, however, is challenged by a complex multi-stakeholder configuration, and by ‘rules of the game’ ...
