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...

Intensive longitudinal data can be used to explore important associations and patterns between various types of inputs and outcomes. Nonlinear relations and irregular measurement occasions can pose problems to develop an accurate model for these kinds of data. This paper focuses on the development, fitting and evaluation of a prediction model...

The present disclosure concerns an atomie layer deposition device for area-selective deposition of a target material layer onto a deposition area of a substrate surface further comprising a non-deposition area. In use the substrate is conveyed along a plurality of deposition and separator spaces including at least two gas separator spaces...

Future conflicts will increasingly take place in complex, urban environments. This calls for a change from operating in large formations and from static encampments to dispersed, networked, decentralized and small-scale operations. Concept development for dispersed operations and their accompanying strategies has only just begun. To aid in this...

As the demand for renewable energy increases, wind turbine rotors will become larger with slender blades. Vortex Generators (VGs) are one of the most common methods of passive flow control to avoid flow separation and loading on the root section of slender blades due to their simplicity, inexpensiveness, and the ability to retrofit them to...

Structural components in corrosive environments such as pipelines, bridges, aircrafts, and turbines are imposed to stress corrosion. A stress corrosion model for pit growth should a) accurately consider the electrochemistry of the corrosion process, b) properly deal with the moving interface between solid and electrolyte, and c) effectively...

In this work, an object-oriented geometric engine is proposed to solve problems with discontinuities, for instance, material interfaces and cracks, by means of unfitted, immersed, or enriched finite element methods (FEMs). Both explicit and implicit representations, such as geometric entities and level sets, are intro duced to describe...

Switched reluctance motors are appealing because they are inexpensive in both construction and maintenance. The aim of this paper is to develop a commutation function that linearizes the nonlinear motor dynamics in such a way that the torque ripple is reduced. To this end, a convex optimization problem is posed that directly penalizes torque...

Developing safe automated vehicles that can be proactive, safe, and comfortable in mixed traffic requires improved planning methods that are risk-averse and that account for predictions of the motion of other road users. To consider these criteria, in this article, we propose a nonlinear model-predictive trajectory generator scheme, which...

To operate safely, an automated vehicle (AV) must anticipate how the environment around it will evolve. For that purpose, it is important to know which prediction models are most appropriate for every situation. Currently, assessment of prediction models is often performed over a set of trajectories without distinction of the type of movement...

Below are some ideas for Dialogue Support in the context of TNO’s Early Research Program ‘WISE Policy Making’. More specifically, these ideas are meant to organize workshops with the WISE Cube, with policy makers, with stakeholders, and possibly also with citizens. These diverse people can collaborate in various stages of policy making. We...

This paper presents a hybrid model to estimate the magnetic behaviour of a ferromagnetic structure. The mathematical-physical model has been developed using the Method of Moments combined with a hysteresis model. The mathematical model was derived by a linearisation of the hysteresis curve. The initial magnetic state of a ferromagnetic object is...

There is a strong need to reduce emissions from transport and logistics. Electrificationand use of greener energy carriers and fuels provide a ready way to reduce emissions, but thesetechnologies are generally more expensive than the conventional ones they are replacing. Fortunately,some shippers are willing to pay the extra cost to ship their...

Purpose: Three feasible cooling methods for treatment of hyperthermic individuals in the military, that differed considerably in water volume needed (none to ~80 L), were evaluated. Methods: Ten male soldiers were cooled following exercise-induced hyperthermia (rectal temperature (Tre) ∼39.5 °C) using ventilation by fanning (1.7 m s−1),...

Rain-induced leading-edge erosion of wind turbine blades is associated with high repair and mainte nance costs. For efficient operation and maintenance, erosion models are required that provide estimates of blade coating lifetime at a real scale. In this study, a statistical rainfall model is established that de scribes probabilistic...

Visual Question Answering (VQA) is a very interesting tech nique to answer natural language questions about an image. Recent methods have focused on incorporating knowledge into an improved VQA model, by augmenting the training set, representing scene graphs, or including reasoning. We also leverage knowledge to make VQA more robust. Yet we take...
