An integrative approach to maritime accident risk factor assessment in accordance with formal safety assessment is proposed, which exploits the multifaceted capabilities of Bayesian networks (BNs) by consolidation of modelling, verification, and validation. The methodology for probabilistic modelling with BNs is well known and its application to risk assessment is based on the model verified though sensitivity analysis only, while validation of the model is often omitted due to a lack of establi...

Executing voluntary motor actions in the upper extremities after a stroke is frequently challenging and frustrating. Although spontaneous motor recovery can occur, reorganizing the activation of the primary motor cortex and supplementary motor area takes a considerable amount of time involving effective rehabilitation interventions. Based on motor control theory and experience-dependent neural plasticity, stroke protocols centered on bimanual movement coordination are generating considerable evi...

Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) face two fundamental challenges: on the one hand, they must ensure an efficient application of preventive maintenance plans for their survival under competitive environments; and on the other hand, they must simultaneously comply with the requirements of reliability, maintainability, and safety of their operations, ensuring environmental care and the quality of their effluents for human consumption. In this sense, this article seeks to propose a cost-efficient...

High-frequency vibration error of a moving radar platform easily introduces a non-negligible phase of periodic modulation in radar echoes and greatly degrades terahertz synthetic aperture radar (THz-SAR) image quality. For solving the problem of THz-SAR image-quality degradation, the paper proposes a multi-component high-frequency vibration error estimation and compensation approach based on the short-time Fourier transform (STFT). To improve the robustness of the method against noise effects, S...

The increasing air pollution taking place in virtue of human activity has a novel impact in our health. Heterogeneous photocatalysis is a promising way of degrading volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that makes the quest of new and improved photocatalysts of great importance. Herein, perovskite-related materials ATiO3 with A = Mg, Ni, Co, Zn were synthesized through an ethylene glycol-mediated root, with ethylene glycol being used as a solvent and ligand. Characterization techniques such as X-ray...

Grid-connected inverters (GCI) are commonly used in PV system applications to generate a regulated AC current to feed into the grid. Transformerless inverters are the most advanced inverters that are used in industry, which provide efficiency with smaller size and lower cost. This paper proposes a grid-connected single-phase transformerless inverter with the technology of common ground and the virtual DC bus concept. In this topology, the grid neutral is connected directly to the PV ground, whic...

Meat products are widely consumed worldwide and, as a result, they may be an exciting supplier of health benefits due to the need for better formulations, such as reduced fat and increased fibre in processed meats. This study was carried out to determine how the banana peel (BP) flour of Saba (Musa balbisiana) and Berangan (Musa acuminata) affect the functional properties and sensory acceptance of chicken sausage. Berangan BPs showed better water- and oil-holding capacity than Saba BP flour. Con...

Humans require about 20 chemical elements. Half of them are essential metal ions. Many additional, non-essential metal ions are present in our bodies through environmental exposures, including in our diet, with functional consequences. Their accumulation is accelerated due to the increasing pollution of soil, air, water and manufacturing processes that employ chemical elements to which we have not been exposed in our evolutionary history. Yet other metal ions are essential for other forms of lif...

Even in a scenario where electric vehicles gain market share and the sale of internal combustion engines is gradually reduced, at the present time, there are still no real options that can totally replace the internal combustion (IC) engine over the entire range of its applications [...]

Nanoparticles are generally used to scatter and absorb solar radiations in nanofluid-based direct solar receivers to efficiently transport and store the heat. However, solar energy absorption in nanofluid can be enhanced by using differential materials and tuning nanofluid parameter. In this regard, theoretical investigations of unsteady homogeneous Hiemenz flow of an incompressible nanofluid having copper and silver nanoparticles over a porous wedge is carried out by using optimal homotopy asym...
