For long-baseline over several hundreds of kilometers, the ionospheric delays that cannot be fully removed by differencing observations between receivers hampers rapid ambiguity resolution. Compared with forming ionospheric-free linear combination using dual- or triple-frequency observations, estimating ionospheric delays using uncombined...

Marchenko redatuming is a novel scheme used to retrieve up- and downgoing Green's functions in an unknown medium.Marchenko equations are based on reciprocity theorems and are derived on the assumption of the existence of functions exhibiting space-time focusing properties once injected in the subsurface. In contrast to interferometry but...

Direct microscopic observation of the isothermal bainite evolution in terms of nucleation events, the location of the nuclei, as well as their growth is very valuable for the refinement of models predicting the kinetics of bainite transformation. To this aim, the microstructural evolution in a Fe-0.2C-1.5Mn-2.0Cr alloy during isothermal...

Bone substitutes are frequently used in clinical practice but often exhibit limited osteoinductivity. We hypothesized that unfocused shockwaves enhance the osteoinductivity of bone substitutes and improve osteointegration and angiogenesis. Three different bone substitutes, namely porous tricalcium phosphate, porous hydroxyapatite and porous...

Strong noise is one of the toughest problems in the controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) method, which highly affects the quality of recorded data. The three main types of noise existing in CSEM data are periodic noise, Gaussian white noise, and nonperiodic noise, among which the nonperiodic noise is thought to be the most difficult to...

Characterization utilizing X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) revealed the presence of all the expected elements found in trishydrazone hydrogels (3). Morphological study on confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) revealed the branching and bundling of fibers that led hydrogels network as well as the...

Flavocytochrome c sulfide dehydrogenase from Thioalkalivibrio paradoxus (TpFCC) is a heterodimeric protein consisting of flavin- and monohaem c-binding subunits. TpFCC was co-purified and co-crystallized with the dimeric copper-binding protein TpCopC. The structure of the TpFCC-(TpCopC)2 complex was determined by X-ray diffraction...

If the aperture distribution is broad enough in a naturally fractured reservoir, even one where the fracture network is highly inter-connected, most fractures can be eliminated without significantly affecting the flow through the fracture network. During a waterflood or enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) process, the production of oil depends on the...

In this paper, an analytical method is presented to assess FLI (Frequency lock-in) of monopile support structures for offshore wind turbines, subjected to loading by floating sea ice. The method is introduced, justified and presented with an example. The main idea of the method is to use existing knowledge regarding structural response...

Making improvements to feed spacers of spiral-wound membrane (SWM) modules of reverse osmosis (RO) is a necessary step towards a wider application of these modules. This study sets out to evaluate the performance of six commercial feed spacers by comparing their actual velocity profiles and their pressure drop. Velocity profiles are obtained...

Research on neighborhood effects has increasingly focused on how long children have lived in a deprived neighborhood during childhood (duration), but has typically ignored when in childhood the exposure occurred (timing) and whether neighborhood circumstances were improving or deteriorating (sequencing). In this article, the authors applied...

Pile foundations used for offshore wind structures are subjected to large lateral loading from wind and waves while in service as well as significant vertical loading from the top structure. Erosion of soil from around these structures, termed scour, poses a significant problem for the structural stability. In order to better understand the...

The preparation and the performance of mixed matrix membranes based on metal-organic polyhedra (MOPs) are reported. MOP fillers can be dispersed as discrete molecular units (average 9 nm in diameter) when low filler cargos are used. In spite of the low doping amount (1.6 wt %), a large performance enhancement in permeability, aging resistance...

Our lives are increasingly intertwined with the digital realm, and with new technology, new ethical problems emerge. The academic field that addresses these problems—which we tentatively call ‘digital ethics’—can be an important intellectual resource for policy making and regulation. This is why it is important to understand how the new...

3D non-linear finite element analyses are proving increasingly beneficial to analyse the foundations of offshore wind turbines (OWTs) in combination with advanced soil modelling. For this purpose, the well-known SANISAND04 bounding surface plasticity model (Dafalias & Manzari 2004) is adopted in this work to incorporate key aspects of...

Predicting accurately the response of sands to cyclic loads is as relevant as still challenging when many loading cycles are involved, for instance, in relation to offshore or railway geo-engineering applications. Despite the remarkable achievements in the field of soil constitutive modelling, most existing models do not yet capture...

Waste management represents a challenge for public authorities due to many reasons such as increased waste generation following urban population growth, economic burdens imposed on the municipal budget, and nuisances inevitably caused to the environment and local inhabitants. To optimize the system from a sustainability perspective, moving the...

This experimental work focused on the sensor selection for the development of a needle-like instrument to treat small isolated cartilage defects with hydrogels. The aim was to identify the most accurate and sensitive imaging method to determine the location and size of defects compared to a gold standard (µCT). Only intravascular ultrasound...

The Winter Colloquium on the Physics of Quantum Electronics (PQE) has been a seminal force in quantum optics and related areas since 1971. It is rather mind-boggling to recognize how the concepts presented at these conferences have transformed scientific understanding and human society. In January 2017, the participants of PQE were asked to...

Autonomous flight of Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles (FWMAVs) is a major challenge in the field of robotics, due to their light weight and their flapping-induced body motions. An FWMAV is presented weighing a mere 20 g while all its sensors and processing for autonomous flight are onboard. The navigation is based on a 4-g stereo vision camera...
