In circular concrete design, beside cement replacement with more environmentally friendly cement types, there is also an urgent need for sand replacement with fine recycled concrete aggregates (fRCA). The variations in physical and chemical properties of fRCA and lack of standards for their quality evaluation are the main reasons for not yet...

Background: Allergen information on product labels is crucial in food allergy management, though inadequacy in current labelling practices is one of the major causes for accidental reactions upon consuming prepacked food products. Objective: This study analyses current status of communicating allergen information on food labels and provides...

This paper discusses the state-of-the-art of the fine recycled concrete aggregates (fRCA), focusing on their physical and chemical properties, engineering properties and durability of concretes with fRCA. Based on the systematic review of the published literature, it is impossible to deduce without any further research the guidelines and tools...

Context. Central congenital hypothyroidism (CH) requires lifelong medical treatment. The majority of children with central CH have multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies (MPHD), but in some cases central CH is isolated. Most pituitary hormone deficiencies are associated with impaired health-related quality of life (HRQoL). However, studies on...

Air quality warning and forecasting systems are usually based on numerical chemical transport models (CTMs). Those dynamic models perform predictions by simulating the life cycles of the atmospheric components, including emission, transport and removal. However, the accuracy of these CTMs are still limited because of many imperfections, e.g.,...

BACKGROUND: Age-related declines in taste and smell function are widely assumed to contribute to the decrease in appetite and the development of undernutrition in older adults. OBJECTIVES: Here we aim to assess the associations of both taste and smell function with several nutrition-related outcomes in a single study, with poor appetite and...

In this work, we investigate the ability of a data assimilation technique and space-borne observations to quantify and monitor changes in nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions over North-Western Greece for the summers of 2018 and 2019. In this region, four lignite-burning power plants are located. The data assimilation technique, based on the Ensemble...

The evaluation of chemical transport models, CTMs, is essential for the assessment of their performance regarding the physical and chemical parameterizations used. While regional CTMs have been widely used and evaluated over Europe, their validation over Greece is limited. In this study, we investigate the performance of the Long Term Ozone...

Students can be disturbed by background noise while working in an open-plan study environment. To improve the acoustic quality of open-plan study environments a study was done on the influence of different sound scenarios on students working on a typical student task, “studying for an exam”. Three sound scenarios and a quiet reference sound...

Objectives This study aimed to estimate acute effects of roster characteristics on fatigue and sleep quality and investigated whether these effects differed by individual characteristics. Methods Using an ecological measurement assessment survey, fatigue and sleep quality were daily measured among 223 shift workers for up to eight weeks. A...

Row–column designs involve two crossed blocking factors. We propose three combinatorial criteria and a criterion based on D-efficiency to identify optimal row–column arrangements of fractional factorial two-level designs. We search for such arrangements in complete catalogs of 16-run and 24-run orthogonal arrays of strength 2 with two-level...

Model tools for estimating hazardous substance exposure are an accepted part of regulatory risk assessments in Europe, and models underpin control banding tools used to help manage chemicals in workplaces. Of necessity the models are simplified abstractions of real-life working situations that aim to capture the essence of the scenario to give...

About two in three people have experienced carsickness at some point in their life (Reason & Brand, 1975). Little is known about current numbers of sufferers, cultural differences, or which modulating factors are being perceived as most relevant. Therefore, given a global increase of interest in carsickness driven by the development of automated...

Particulate black carbon has a range of negative impacts on health, the environment and climate, however despite this there are relatively few long-term studies on its ambient distribution as a tropospheric air pollutant. In order to address this lack of data, to help to provide greater insight into the spatio-temporal distribution of...
