Counter terrorism is a huge challenge for public spaces. Therefore, it is essential to support early detection of threats, such as weapons or explosives. An integrated fusion engine was developed for the management of a plurality of sensors to detect threats without disrupting the flow of commuters. The system improves security of soft targets ...

Mechanical loading of the low-back is an important risk factor for the development of low-back pain. Real-time estimation of the L5S1 joint moment (ML5S1) can give an insight to reduce mechanical loading. Model accuracy depends on sensor information, limiting the number of input variables to estimate ML5S1 increases practical feasibility, but...

PFOA and PFOS are widely found PFAS components in Dutch topsoils. PFOA was emitted to the atmosphere during 1970-2012 from a fluoropolymers factory, and was deposited mainly within a radius of 50 km. For the first time, detailed concentration-depth profiles of PFOA and PFOS were measured in undisturbed soils down wind of the factory. Three...

Salt crystallization is a major cause of weathering of mortars, including plasters and renders. In the last decade, the use of mixed-in salt crystallization inhibitors in mortars has been proposed as a solution to improve the durability of this material with respect to salt decay. Laboratory characterization and accelerated weathering tests have...

Background and Objective. Assessment of health-related quality of life for individuals born very preterm and/or low birthweight (VP/VLBW) offers valuable complementary information alongside biomedical assessments. However, the impact of VP/VLBW status on health-related quality of life in adulthood is inconclusive. The objective of this study was...

Objective: For the general working population, robust evidence exists for associations between psychosocial work exposures and mental health. As this relationship is less clear for young workers, this systematic review aims at providing an overview of the evidence concerning psychosocial work factors affecting mental health of young workers....

Exposure to extreme environmental heat or cold during military activities can impose severe thermal strain, leading to impairments in task performance and increasing the risk of exertional heat (including heat stroke) and cold injuries that can be life-threatening. Substantial individual variability in physiological tolerance to thermal stress...

Meliodosis and glanders are both potential biological threat agents. Glanders is endemic in Southeast Asia and Northern Australia but occasionally found in other countries. Meliodosis is caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei, while glanders is caused by Burkholderia mallei. The diagnosis of these diseases is difficult because the clinical picture...

Objective: Mounting evidence indicates increased risk of COVID-19 among healthcare personnel, but the evidence on risks in other occupations is limited. In this study, we quantify the occupational risk of COVID-19-related hospital admission in Denmark during 2020-2021. Methods: The source population included 2.4 million employees age 20-69 years...

Potassium carbonate has recently been identified as a promising candidate for thermochemical energy storage. However, as for many salt hydrates, its reaction kinetics is relatively slow. KCO has a metastable zone, where the reaction is kinetically hindered, which limits the temperature operating window. This work aims to improve the material...

The effects of stress may be alleviated when its impact or a decreased stress-resilience are detected early. This study explores whether wearable-measured sleep and resting HRV in police officers can be predicted by stress-related Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) measures in preceding days and predict stress-related EMA outcomes in...
