The construction industry around the world produces a large part of inert wastes mainly coming from building demolitions. Facing to this envi-ronmental challenge and considering the new policy initiatives supporting the designing of sustainable buildings, dry-stacked masonry comes forward as a promising solution since components can be dismantled, saved in a component bank and reassembled on new sites. The speedy growth of the construction industry, the increasing importance given to the complete life cycle of buildings and the evolution of construction technics have led to the development of dry-stacked masonry structures. Mortarless masonry structures minimise skilled labour requirements and improve construction productivity. However, despite these advantages, there are no design standards providing guidelines to assess the load-bearing capacity of dry-stacked masonry block, which therefore limits its use in construction. In an attempt to fill this lack, the current paper investigates the load-bearing capacity of dry-stacked masonry and its influencing parameters. The effects of the geometric imperfections such as height imperfections and bed-joint roughness have been analysed as well as a mitigation strategy. Then, based on experimental evidence, a design method has been proposed for dry-stacked masonry solicited by axial compression. The developed design methodology provided promising results, with 93% of accuracy in the prediction of the dry-stacked masonry’s’ load-bearing capacity. [less ▲]

This paper presents the results from reliability analyses of the current Eurocode 4 (EN 1994-1-1) and AISC 360-16 design models for predicting the resistance of headed stud shear connectors within profiled steel sheeting, when the ribs are oriented transverse to the supporting beam. For comparison purposes, the performance of the alternative “Luxembourg” and “Stuttgart” model were also considered. From an initial database of 611 push-out tests, 269 cases were included in the study, which ensured that the results were valid over a wide range of geometrical and material properties. It was found that the current EN 1994-1-1 design rules deliver a corrected partial safety factor γM* of around 2.0, which is significantly higher than the target value 1.25. Moreover, 179 tests fell within the domain of the concrete-related failure design equation. Notwithstanding this, the EN 1994-1-1 equations provide satisfactory results for re-entrant profiled sheeting. The AISC 360-16 design equation for steel failure covers 263 of the tests in the database and delivers γM*≈2.0. Conversely, whilst the alternative “Stuttgart” model provides an improvement over the current codes, only a corrected partial safety factor of γM*=1.47 is achieved. Finally, the alternative “Luxembourg” design model was found to deliver the required target value, with a corrected partial safety factor γM* between 1.21 and 1.28. Given the fact that the Luxembourg design model is the only model that achieved the target values required by EN 1990, it is recommended as a potential candidate for inclusion within the second generation of Eurocodes.

Achieving real-time inference is one of the major issues in contemporary neural network applications, as complex algorithms are frequently being deployed to mobile devices that have constrained storage and computing power. Moving from a full-precision neural network model to a lower representation by applying quantization techniques is a popular approach to facilitate this issue. Here, we analyze in detail and design a 2-bit uniform quantization model for Laplacian source due to its significance in terms of implementation simplicity, which further leads to a shorter processing time and faster inference. The results show that it is possible to achieve high classification accuracy (more than 96% in the case of MLP and more than 98% in the case of CNN) by implementing the proposed model, which is competitive to the performance of the other quantization solutions with almost optimal precision.

This research concerns the design and prototyping of an artificial middle finger, using Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs), PolyLactic Acid (PLA), and other technologies. The design is a biomimicry of the human biological anatomical and muscular systems. After briefly describing the operational features and functioning of natural striated muscles, the document reviews the features, advantages and disadvantages of SMAs in the perspective of their use as an actuator of a prosthetic finger.Using different design parameters, such as the lightness of the device, actuation complexity, and resilience, a working prototype is proposed meeting the established criteria.

In this paper, we present a new energy efficiency model and architecture for cloud management based on a prediction model with Gaussian Mixture Models. The methodology relies on a distributed agent model and the validation will be performed on OpenStack. This paper intends to be a position paper, the implementation and experimental run will be conducted in future work. The design concept leverages the prediction model by providing a full architecture binding the resource demands, the predictions and the actual cloud environment (Openstack). The prediction analysis feeds the power-aware agents that run on the compute nodes in order to turn the nodes into sleep mode when the load state is low to reduce the energy consumption of the data center.

Nuclear power with strengthened safety regulations continues to be used as an important resource in the world for managing atmospheric greenhouse gases and associated climate change. This study examined the environmentally benign separation of zirconium tetrachloride (ZrCl4) and hafnium tetrachloride (HfCl4) for nuclear power reactor applications through extractive distillation using a NaCl-KCl molten salt mixture. The vapor–liquid equilibrium behavior of ZrCl4 and HfCl4 over the molten salt system was correlated with Raoult’s law. The molten salt-based extractive distillation column was designed optimally using a rigorous commercial simulator for the feasible separation of ZrCl4 and HfCl4. The molten salt-based extractive distillation approach has many potential advantages for the commercial separation of ZrCl4 and HfCl4 compared to the conventional distillation because of its milder temperatures and pressure conditions, smaller number of required separation trays in the column, and lower energy requirement for separation, while still taking the advantage of environmentally benign feature by distillation. A heat-pump-assisted configuration was also explored to improve the energy efficiency of the extractive distillation process. The proposed enhanced configuration reduced the energy requirement drastically. Extractive distillation can be a promising option competing with the existing extraction-based separation process for zirconium purification for nuclear power reactor applications [less ▲]

A goal of the project was done to develop a new good-looking racing rim of a sports car which would be lighter than existing ones. To achieve the goal, lightweight magnesium alloy Mg ZK60-T5 was applied for the rim, and its preliminary shape was developed employing topology op-timisation. The rim was designed for forging technology; this means that it had to have all manu-facturing features required by that production process. Based on a literature review, loads, boundary conditions and structural requirements were established, which are crucial for a further development process. The initial design was created using the topology optimisation, and then a parametric model was developed using a CAD system. As a next step, the first part of validation was done employing FEA in order to meet strength and stiffness targets; some modifications of the CAD model were imposed. As the last step, the final validation was done employing simply fatigue assessment. The optimisation and FEA were completed using Hyperworks 14/ Inspire 2015 software and the CAD model employing Autodesk Inventor 2015. The results show that the rim design meets theoretically all structural requirements and a good-looking shape was reached. The total mass of 7.9 kg of the designed rim is obtained, which means a reduction about 1.8 kg with the comparison with a reference rim. The 3D model and a technical drawing are completed; this means that the rim can be sent to a production phase. The results of the project also show that the topology optimisation technology provided by Hyperworks and the advanced CAD system can be used to generate competitive designs with any design offices without difficulties.
