Spatiotemporal time series prediction plays a crucial role in a wide range of applications. However, in most of the studies, spatial information was ignored and predictions were carried out either on a few points or on average values. In this study, 37 different configurations of 4 traditional ML models and 3 Neural Network (NN) based models...

In this paper, optimization of vascular structure of self-healing concrete is performed with deep neural network (DNN). An input representation method is proposed to effectively represent the concrete beams with 6 round pores in the middle span as well as benefit the optimization process. To investigate the feasibility of using DNN for...

Mangrove forests are increasingly valued as wave-attenuating buffers in coastal flood defence strategies. However, as mangroves are vulnerable to wave-induced erosion, this raises the question, how can the stability of these protective mangrove forests be promoted? To address this question, we investigate how mangrove dynamics in a microtidal...

Continuing from the part 1 (Shi et al., 2022) this paper presents an experimental investigation of transient void fraction and bubble statistics in a highly turbulent breaking bore with Fr<sub>1</sub>=2.4. The measurements were conducted using a combination of dual-tip phase-detection probes and an ultra-high-speed video camera. The enclosed...

Transient motion, turbulence and bubble dynamics make any velocity quantification extremely difficult in unsteady gas–liquid flows. In the present study, novel Eulerian and Lagrangian techniques of velocimetry were developed, using both intrusive and non-intrusive measurements. The selected unsteady gas–liquid flow was a breaking bore,...

Recognizing the interrelatedness of water use and conceptual value of IWRM, progressive water resource management systems are moving beyond hierarchical arrangements toward more integrated networks. Increasing calls for participation recognize the value of broadened perspectives that provide both technical expertise as well as social, cultural,...

Controlling the operation of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning) systems is arguably the most effective way to reach desired indoor conditions in buildings. Nevertheless, such control may involve complex dynamics when dealing with passive energy technologies. In this paper, we focus on maximizing the passive operation of HVAC in...

Compared with a single reservoir, the risk in cascade reservoirs has the transmission and superposition effect, which increases the complexity of its risk consequence assessment. In view of this problem, the direct consequence (DC) and potential consequence (PC) were defined as two parts of the dam breach risk consequence of cascade reservoirs....

One of the main difficulties in measuring partial discharges (PD) in gas-insulated substations (GIS) is the overlapping of pulses at the sensor's location, which distorts the pulse resolution and the charge estimation. This research presents a new method called “synergy,” which identifies and suppresses reflections using magnetic and electric...

We propose three procedures based on association rules (AR) learning and random forests (RF) to support the specification of a portfolio choice model applied in data from complex choice experiment data, specifically a Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE) choice experiment. In a PVE choice experiment, respondents choose a combination of...

The intermittent nature of the renewable energy sources with the greater potential, wind and solar, requires dealing with temporary mismatches between demand and supply. The object of this study is to assess the Spanish energy plan from a system perspective regarding the energy storage requirements to meet electricity demand with high...

Identifiability of a single module in a network of transfer functions is determined by the question whether a particular transfer function in the network can be uniquely distinguished within a network model set, on the basis of data. Whereas previous research has focused on the situations that all network signals are either excited or...

In this paper, we treat extended balancing for continuous-time linear time-invariant systems. We take a dissipativity perspective, thus resulting in a characterization in terms of linear matrix inequalities. This perspective is useful for determining a priori error bounds. In addition, we address the problem of structure-preserving model...

This article addresses nonlinearity in reset elements and its effects. Reset elements are known for having less phase lag based on describing function (DF) analysis compared to their linear counterparts; however, they are nonlinear elements and produce higher-order harmonics. This article investigates the steady-state higher-order harmonics for...

Surface compositions play a predominant role in the efficiency and lifetime of membranes and catalysts. The surface composition can change during operation due to segregation, thus controlling and predicting the surface composition is essential. Computational modelling can aid in predicting alloy stability, along with designing surface alloys...

Theory and application of damage stability followed over the years two dissociated paths: static assessments and dynamic simulations. The first approach, being easy to apply and understand, has been preferred by ship designers and regulators; the second, more advanced and first-principle oriented, has been mainly reserved for research or high...

The rapid development of power electronics has challenged the thermal integrity of semiconductor packaging. Further developments in this domain can be supported significantly by utilizing fast and flexible thermal characteristic evaluation. This study employs the transient dual interface method (TDIM) to characterize and compare the thermal...

This paper explores to what extent inequalities in travel times, measured via the Gini index, depend on the spatial scale at which (average) travel times are measured. By using the new concept of Dedicated Accessibility Points, for the Netherlands we calculated average travel times at four spatial levels, ranging from virtually individual...

Purpose: We studied the differences between planning and treatment position, their impact on the accuracy of hyperthermia treatment planning (HTP) predictions, and the relevance of including true treatment anatomy and position in HTP based on magnetic resonance (MR) images. Materials and methods: All volunteers were scanned with an MR...
