Orthogonal signal-division multiplexing (OSDM) has recently emerged as a promising modulation scheme for underwater acoustic communications. Although providing more flexibility in system design, it suffers from a special interference structure over time-varying channels. To enable reliable OSDM equalization, we propose a joint channel impulse...

This paper introduces three new Schur complement approximations for the augmented Lagrangian preconditioner. The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations discretized by a stabilized finite element method are utilized to evaluate these new approximations of the Schur complement. A wide range of numerical experiments in the laminar context...

Automated manufacturing of thermoplastic composites has found increased interest in aerospace applications over the past three decades because of its great potential in low-cost, high rate, repeatable production of high performance composite structures. Experimental validation is a key element in the development of structures made using this...

The problem of realizing finite metric spaces in terms of weighted graphs has many applications. For example, the mathematical and computational properties of metrics that can be realized by trees have been well-studied and such research has laid the foundation of the reconstruction of phylogenetic trees from evolutionary distances. However,...

The Reynolds number effects on body limbs of a cyclist model, namely leg and arm, are investigated via robotic volumetric Particle Image Velocimetry measurements in the velocity range from 5 ​m/s to 25 ​m/s. The near wakes of such body limbs feature recirculation regions whose width and length are governed not only by the taper of the body...

Power electronics demand miniaturization, integration, higher electrical and ther-mal conductivities. However, the traditional electronic packaging materials and technology have limitations to meet these requirements. Conventional lead-free die attach materials, like Sn-Ag-Cu solders, can not satisfy high power electronics application, due to...

A novel immersed boundary method based on a domain decomposition approach is proposed in the context of a finite element discretisation method. It is applicable to incompressible flows past rigid, deforming, or moving bodies. In this method, unlike most immersed boundary methods, strong boundary conditions are imposed in the regions of the...

The CaAlSiN<sub>3</sub>:Eu<sup>2+</sup> red phosphor and its silicone/phosphor composite are very promising materials used in the high color rendering white light-emitting diode (LED) packaging. However, the reliabilities of CaAlSiN<sub>3</sub>:Eu<sup>2+</sup> and its composite are still being challenged by phosphor hydrolysis at high...

Weather and climate influence life in many ways; varying climatic conditions can be<br/>associated with varying human cultures and on a day-to-day basis, the weather influences our plans and mood. As such, a proper prediction of the weather is of great importance. Ultimately, the weather is fueled by solar irradiation, which changes sharply over...

A novel machine learning algorithm is presented, serving as a data-driven turbulence modeling tool for Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations. This machine learning algorithm, called the Tensor Basis Random Forest (TBRF), is used to predict the Reynolds-stress anisotropy tensor, while guaranteeing Galilean invariance by making use...

This paper describes a simplified model and a generic model of high-frequency current transformer (HFCT) sensors. By analyzing the models, a universal charge estimation method based on the double time integral of the measured voltage is inferred. The method is demonstrated to be valid irrespective of HFCT sensor, assuming that its transfer...

In the chain of steel production, the blast furnace converts iron ore into liquid iron. The hearth of the blast furnace, where the liquid metal is collected and tapped off, is filled with relatively large coke particles (D ~ 20 – 100 mm). The meandering flow of hot liquid metal in the coarse-grained porous medium in the hearth causes erosion of...

As one of the main sensor in autonomous driving, radar has great advantages over other sensors, especially its capabilities during adverse weather condition and Doppler information extraction. Performance of the radar in terms of accuracy and target resolution strongly depends on radar waveforms transmitted and signal processing algorithms...

Reinforced composites are used in many industrial and multi-functional applications. The efficiency of the reinforcements depends mainly on the aspect ratio, material properties, and the adhesion between matrix and reinforcement. Particularly, high aspect ratio fillers and inclusions have gained popularity due to their unique material and...

In this paper we discuss scheduling of semi-cyclic discrete-event systems, for which the set of operations may vary over a limited set of possible sequences of operations. We introduce a unified modeling framework in which different types of semi-cyclic discrete-event systems can be described by switching max-plus linear (SMPL) models. We use...

The first-order magneto-elastic transition in the Mn–Fe–P–Si alloys can be tailored by vanadium substitution. Alloys with a suitable V substitution provide an excellent magnetocaloric effect with minor hysteresis in low magnetic fields up to 1.2 T. Mössbauer measurements show that the hyperfine field is reduced by V substitution. Neutron...

In 2016 bracht de Raad voor de Leefomgeving en Infrastructuur (RLI) het rapport ‘Mainports voorbij’ uit (RLI, 2016). In het rapport wordt gesteld dat de twee belangrijkste ‘mainports ’, de haven van Rotterdam en Schiphol Amsterdam, in tegenstelling tot wat ze zelf en vele anderen beweerden, niet de ‘motoren’ zijn van de Nederlandse economie....

We introduce a Language-consistent multi-lingual Open Relation Extraction Model (LOREM) for finding relation tuples of any type between entities in unstructured texts. LOREM does not rely on language-specific knowledge or external NLP tools such as translators or PoS-taggers, and exploits information and structures that are consistent over...

Two-wheeler vehicles (i.e., bicycles, mopeds, and motorcycles) are becoming increasingly popular in congested cities because of their small dimensions, low cost of use compared to cars, and their contribution to a healthy lifestyle. Even though the use of two-wheelers offers benefits, their low conspicuity, instability, and vulnerability of the...

In the last decades, advanced driver-assistance systems have contributed to improved road safety. With the recent advance of technology, automotive automation is taking more and more tasks away from the driver. Although automation removes human imprecision and variability, it also introduces out-of-the-loop problems such as complacency, skill...
