The application of data analytics has delivered significant value in a broad range of industries, but has frequently failed to bring about operational efficiencies or process safety improvements in asset-intensive sectors despite a profound increase in the volume of digital information that is stored by companies operating in this domain. Process safety management is a major concern of asset-intensive organisations, as the consequences of incidents can be catastrophic. In order to prevent incide...

The days of EEG machines with dozens, if not 50 or more wires hanging from a subject’s head are gone. Doctors are still using EEG to diagnose stroke, epilepsy and a variety of sleep disorders, but the EEG has made its leap into mainstream life - as a wearable device for truckers, construction workers, or anyone who wants to stay alert. Gamers, pilots, and even companies who want to track the responses of consumers are turning to EEG for more insight, and control over their brains. This ebook is ...

The convergence of technology and the city is commonly referred to as the ‘smart city’. It is seen as a possible remedy for the challenges that urbanisation creates in the age of global climate change, and as an enabler of a sustainable and liveable urban future. A review of the abundant but fragmented literature on smart city theories and practices, nevertheless, reveals that there is a limited effort to capture a comprehensive understanding on how the complex and multidimensional nature of the...

Cybersecurity studies at undergraduate/postgraduate level are offered at numerous universities in Australia. The level offered varies from a specifically named undergraduate/postgraduate coursework degree to usual IT or relevant degrees offering cybersecurity as a minor or major theme. A minority of universities do not offer any specific cybersecurity specific course while others offer such courses in association with industry organisations. Based upon an extensive analysis of published course/p...

Cities all over the world have activated policy support for urban consolidation in recent decades. Rationales for urban consolidation focus on its perceived ability to achieve sustainability goals, including decreased automobile dependence, increased social cohesion and greater walkability. Despite this, there are few international examples of urban consolidation policy implementation that has achieved its stated aims. This paper explores the nature and character of perceptions of urban consolid...

The development of semiconductor fabrication process and electronic packaging technology causes the size and weight of electronic components to decrease consistently. Along with the increasing operating power, the heat generation rate of the electronic products apparently gets higher. For the sustainable future, we must limit using natural resources and also reduce the greenhouse gas emission. Efficient removal of heat from the electronic products in a limited space becomes a major task in elect...

This paper presents an experimental study to evaluate the performance of the newly developed Soft-Hard-Soft (SHS) composite pavement system subjected to multiple drop weight impacts. Such a composite system consists of three layers including Asphalt Concrete (AC), High Strength Concrete (HSC), and Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC). The results were also compared with conventional rigid and flexible pavements. The results showed that the SHS system significantly improves the impact resista...

This paper describes ‘generate and situated transformation’ as a paradigm for models of computational creativity that can lead to novel questions and methods of enquiry. It describes the need for systems that can move towards a frame within which a design solution can be found. The term situated transformation is defined, with reference to Boden’s notion of transformation and ideas from situated cognition, as a change of frame that is based upon experience. The paper then provides a demonstratio...

Low-frequency switching strategies are considered as an effective way of achieving efficient performance in multilevel inverters. Selective harmonic elimination (SHE) is a modulation technique of this category which gives a superior outcome suppressing low-order detrimental harmonics. Limited number of decision variables offered by SHE in the corresponding non-linear equations hinders obtaining high-quality waveforms. Current research is targeted on two distinct objectives for cascaded H-bridge ...

Contemporary global economies heavily rely on human capability to acquire new knowledge, foster innovation and promote scientific development (Lafond, 2015). This requires acquisition and development of specific skills to allow modern graduates to become agile and effective employees, capable of leading and sustaining progress. The current research investigated to what extent we are preparing our students to the above-mentioned roles, in the context of a first-year Computational Science unit, by...
