Parameterization of turbulence models using 3DVAR data
(City University of New York, 2014-01-08)
In this research the 3DVAR data assimilation scheme is implemented in the numerical model DIVAST in order to optimize the performance of the numerical model by selecting an appropriate turbulence scheme and tuning its ...
Wide field of view (WFoV) imaging for consumer devices
The concepts of wide field of view (WFoV) imaging for consumer devices are explained. Some current examples and enabling technologies are provided. The need for real-time distortion correction is outlined. Several new ...
On thin-clients and the cloud; can smartphones and tablets really reduce electricity consumption?
Cloud computing suggests that we can move many computational and data storage services from the desktop onto the network. New thin clients provide an excellent user interface for cloud services and also reduce both ...
Detection and repair of flash-eye in handheld devices
Red-eye and flash-eye defects in still photography continue to cause problems for digital imaging devices. New variants of flash-eye defects have appeared as cameras and cameras sub-systems get smaller in size. This paper ...
Driven cast-in-situ piles in granular soil: applicability of CPT methods for pile capacity
Most CPT-based design methods for driven piles are heavily influenced by research on preformed driven piles. In this paper, a critical review is made of the ability of these methods to predict the total capacity of driven ...
Real-time monitoring and performance of retaining structures
(NUI Galway, 2014-08)
The advent of reliable real-time monitoring devices has changed the way we monitor the construction of geotechnical infrastructure. This paper presents a case study where Shaped Accel Arrays (SAA) were employed as part ...
Altering the granularity of neutrality in a multi-layered genetic algorithm
(SciTePress Digital Library, 2014)
By adopting a basic interpretation of the biological processes of transcription and translation, the multilayered GA (MGA) introduces a genotype-phenotype mapping for a haploid genotype, which allows the granularity of the ...
Serious Play as a method for process design
As motivating and including people is a crucial aspect in any plan-ning, design and change process there is always a need for appropriate methods and tools to support this. Lego Serious Play (LSP) is such a method which ...

The influence of heat transfer and storage in structural precast building components on indoor environments
Knowledge about the heat transfer and storage in concrete components of the building envelope is vital in evaluating the environmental and energy performance of buildings. Providing sufficient thermal mass of the building ...
