In the present study, a design concept for unreinforced, cement-bound concrete floors is presented. The work concentrates on cracking caused by shrinkage of the concrete used. The central components of the work are a numerical model (Finite element model) which, taking into account all time-dependent material parameters and with the aid of a simple calculation approach, is able to predict crack paths on sharp edges. In addition, with the help of the model, it is possible to simulate the curling of the corners of a float mounted concrete floor. For this purpose, the required material parameters (static elastic modulus, uniaxial tensile strength) were investigated under laboratory conditions and compared with prognosis values of an available prognosis software and with the analytical prognosis approach of DIN EN 1992-1-1: 2011-01. In a first step, the crack formation and crack development on a small, H-shaped concrete sample were examined and a crack path was calculated using a first numerical approach. This first numerical approach was subsequently validated on large-scale surfaces. On the basis of the large-scale experiments, the numerical model was further developed with regard to curling of concrete floors. All experiments were calculated with the approach of element failure method (EFM) using the commercial finite element software ANSYS. The design concept is completed by a parameter study. By means of this parameter study, it is possible to identify the parameters which decisively influences cracking. The present work thus makes an important contribution to the numerical modelling of damage in unreinforced concrete structures. [less ▲]

We present a security reduction for the PAK protocol instantiated over Gap Diffie-Hellman Groups that is tighter than previously known reductions. We discuss the implications of our results for concrete security. Our proof is the first to show that the PAK protocol can provide meaningful security guarantees for values of the parameters typical in today’s world. [less ▲]

This paper is a first attempt at proposing an integrated conceptual model that would bridge this gap in our knowledge of refugee entrepreneurship. Such a model might then enable for the understanding of the super-diverse entrepreneurial strategies being employed by super-diverse refugees, within complex and super-diverse socio-economic and political settings – thereby, ontologically stepping-up our theoretical approaches and empirical insights into the phenomenon.

Given (1) the need for teachers who are willing and able to design, implement and reflect meaningful and successful educational technology practices in schools and (2) the current rarity of strategic uses of ICT in education in Luxembourgish schools, the self-declared lack of competencies and the low confidence of teachers when it comes to teaching with ICT (Reuter, Busana & Linckels, 2016), we have designed, implemented and tested a project-based approach to the development of practice- oriented TPACK in pre-service teachers. Future teacher students are instructed to define an educational problem they want to solve, to explore existing pedagogical and technological solutions and to design an original solution that involves the strategic use of ICT (theoretically grounded and practically meaningful). They then have to implement the designed learning & teaching scenario in a classroom, to document the teaching & learning processes, to analyse, evaluate and to critically reflect them. Finally, they are required to write a structured report about their project and to present it to their peers and to interested teachers from schools. Overall, we observe that while most students become able to design and implement relatively meaningful educational technology practices, they still tend to feel that they are not ready to teach with technology in a more general sense, because their work was focused on one or two tools and does not give them access to a broader range of meaningful ICT-enriched teaching scenarios for their later professional career.

The structure signature of a system made up of n components having continuous and i.i.d. lifetimes was defined in the eighties by Samaniego as the n-tuple whose k-th coordinate is the probability that the k-th component failure causes the system to fail. More recently, a bivariate version of this concept was considered as follows. The joint structure signature of a pair of systems built on a common set of components having continuous and i.i.d. lifetimes is a square matrix of order n whose (k,l)-entry is the probability that the k-th failure causes the first system to fail and the l-th failure causes the second system to fail. This concept was successfully used to derive a signature-based decomposition of the joint reliability of the two systems. In the first part of this paper we provide an explicit formula to compute the joint structure signature of two or more systems and extend this formula to the general non-i.i.d. case, assuming only that the distribution of the component lifetimes has no ties. We also provide and discuss a necessary and sufficient condition on this distribution for the joint reliability of the systems to have a signature-based decomposition. In the second part of this paper we show how our results can be efficiently applied to the investigation of the reliability and signature of multistate systems made up of two-state components. The key observation is that the structure function of such a multistate system can always be additively decomposed into a sum of classical structure functions. Considering a multistate system then reduces to considering simultaneously several two-state systems. [less ▲]

Time-series of high throughput gene sequencing data intended for gene regulatory network (GRN) inference are often short due to the high costs of sampling cell systems. Moreover, experimentalists lack a set of quantitative guidelines that prescribe the minimal number of samples required to infer a reliable GRN model. We study the temporal resolution of data vs.quality of GRN inference in order to ultimately overcome this deficit. The evolution of a Markovian jump process model for the Ras/cAMP/PKA pathway of proteins and metabolites in the G1 phase of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell cycle is sampled at a number of different rates. For each time-series we infer a linear regression model of the GRN using the LASSO method. The inferred network topology is evaluated in terms of the area under the precision-recall curve (AUPR). By plotting the AUPR against the number of samples, we show that the trade-off has a, roughly speaking, sigmoid shape. An optimal number of samples corresponds to values on the ridge of the sigmoid.

Network reconstruction has become particularly important in systems biology, and is now expected to deliver information on causality. Systems in nature are inherently nonlinear. However, for nonlinear dynamical systems with hidden states, how to give a useful definition of dynamic networks is still an open question. This paper presents a useful definition of Boolean dynamic networks for a large class of nonlinear systems. Moreover, a robust inference method is provided. The well-known Millar-10 model in systems biology is used as a numerical example, which provides the ground truth of causal networks for key mRNAs involved in eukaryotic circadian clocks. In addition, as second contribution of this paper, we suggest definitions of linear network identifiability, which helps to unify the available work on network identifiability. [less ▲]

Robotic software development frameworks lack a possibility to present,validate and generate qualitative complex human robot interactions and robot de-velopers are mostly left with unclear informal project specifications. The devel-opment of a human-robot interaction is a complex task and involves different ex-perts, for example, the need for human-robot interaction (HRI) specialists, whoknow about the psychological impact of the robot’s movements during the in-teraction in order to design the best possible user experience. In this paper, wepresent a new project that aims to provide exactly this. Focusing on the interac-tion flow and movements of a robot for human-robot interactions we aim to pro-vide a set of modelling languages for human-robot interaction which serves as acommon, more formal, discussion point between the different stakeholders. Thisis a new project and the main topics of this publication are the scenario descrip-tion, the analysis of the different stakeholders, our experience as robot applicationdevelopers for our partner, as well as the future work we plan to achieve.

In 1920 publiseerde Prandtl een artikel over het bezwijken van een materiaal onder een strookbelasting. De bezweken grondmoot is hierbij verdeeld in drie zones, die tezamen de zogenoemde Prandtl-wig vormen. Prandtl heeft nooit aan de funderingstechnische toepassing gedacht, maar geotechnici vertalen deze oplossing nu als een analytische oplossing voor de draagkracht van de grond onder een strookfundering. Deze oplossing is uitgebreid door Reissner met een bovenbelasting naast de funderingsstrook en door Keverling Buisman en Terzaghi voor het grondgewicht. Terzaghi schreef dit als eerste met drie gescheiden draagkrachtfactoren en Meyerhof als eerste met “inclinatie-” en “shape” factoren, voor de drie afzonderlijke draagkrachtcomponenten; cohesie, bovenbelasting en het grondgewicht. Deze schrijfwijze werd later door Brinch Hansen overgenomen. In dit artikel zijn een groot aantal numerieke berekeningen gemaakt om het bezwijkmechanisme van de Prandtl-wig en de bijbehorende draagkrachtfactoren te controleren. Het blijkt dat het Prandtl-wig bezwijkmechanisme juist is, maar niet in alle gevallen. Ook blijkt dat de analytische oplossingen voor de draagkrachtfactoren die tegenwoordig worden gebruikt, alleen juist zijn voor grond met een onrealistisch hoge dilatantiehoek. [less ▲]

The mixed-criticality toolbox promises system architects a powerful framework for consolidating real-time tasks with different safety properties on a single computing platform. Thanks to the research efforts in the mixed-criticality field, guarantees provided to the highest criticality level are well understood. However, lower-criticality job execution depends on the condition that all high-criticality jobs complete within their more optimistic low-criticality execution time bounds. Otherwise, no guarantees are made. In this paper, we add to the mixed-criticality toolbox by providing a probabilistic analysis method for low-criticality tasks. While deterministic models reduce task behavior to constant numbers, probabilistic analysis captures varying runtime behavior. We introduce a novel algorithmic approach for probabilistic timing analysis, which we call symbolic scheduling. For restricted task sets, we also present an analytical solution. We use this method to calculate per-job success probabilities for low-criticality tasks, in order to quantify, how low-criticality tasks behave in case of high-criticality jobs overrunning their optimistic low-criticality reservation.
