Abstract

The calibration of paleoclimate proxies is one of the key problems in the study of paleoclimate at present. Historical documentary records of climate are suitable for calibration on dating and the climatic implication of the proxy data in a climatological sense. A test calibration [...]

Abstract

The limited funding available for roadway capacity expansion and the growing funding gap, in conjunction with the increasing congestion, creates a critical need for innovative lane use management options for Indiana. Various cost-effective lane use management strategies have been [...]

Abstract

Engines for A/B/C class vehicles place high emphasis on economic viability. Thus, many innovations focus on"br" optimum system integration of cost effective technologies, which are individually optimized and controlled within"br" the interrelations of engine, exhaust gas aftertreatment [...]

Abstract

Despite substantive growth in utilization of positron emission tomography (PET) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), evidence on its prognostic value is limited. We aimed to comprehensively evaluate the prognostic literature of PET perfusion measures according to the most recent American [...]

Abstract

This paper describes a system for pedestrian detection in infrared images implemented and tested on an experimental vehicle. A specific stabilization procedure is applied after image acquisition and before processing to cope with vehicle movements affecting the camera calibration. [...]

Abstract

:This paper presents an autocalibration method to determine the pose of a stereo vision system based on knowing the geometry of the ground in front of the cameras. This pose changes considerably while the vehicle is driven, therefore it is good to know constantly the pose of the camera [...]

Abstract

High-fidelity scale-resolving simulations of turbulent flows can be prohibitively expensive, especially at high Reynolds numbers. Therefore, multifidelity models (MFM) can be highly relevant for constructing predictive models for flow quantities of interest (QoIs), uncertainty [...]

Abstract

Hygrothermal models are important tool for assessing the risk of moisture-related decay mechanisms in historic masonry structures. However, there are significant uncertainties in the process related to material properties, boundary conditions and quality of construction that effect [...]

Abstract

Purpose: Depending on the calibration of their cognitive abilities, some older drivers (ODs) might stop driving prematurely (under-estimators, UEs) and others could expose themselves to risky situations (over-estimators, OEs). The aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness [...]

Abstract

The technology of the Bourbonic casa Baraccata is one of the earliest earthquake resisting systems, used since the 18th century across Southern Italy in response to the disastrous earthquakes that hit the region frequently. The church of Santa Maria Maddalena in Casamicciola [...]
