A population-specific material model for sagittal craniosynostosis to predict surgical shape outcomes
(Springer Nature, 2020)
Sagittal craniosynostosis consists of premature fusion (ossification) of the sagittal suture during infancy, resulting in head deformity and brain growth restriction. Spring-assisted cranioplasty (SAC) entails skull incisions ...
On the Role of Contact and System Stiffness in the Measurement of Principal Variables in Fretting Wear Testing
(MDPI AG, 2020)
In this work, the role of the contact stiffness in the measurement of principal variables in fretting wear tests is assessed. Several fretting wear tribometers found in the literature, including one developed by the authors, ...
Demand Driven MRP – The need to standardise an implementation process
(Universitat Politècnica de València, 2020)
Since the creation of the demand-driven material requirement planning (DDMRP) model, numerous studies have analysed the methodology’s significant impact on different organisations. Several successful cases and research ...

Crystal-plasticity-finite-element modeling of the dynamic response of a directionally solidified nickel-based superalloy
The flow stress behaviour of a directionally solidified nickel-base superalloy,MAR-M247, is presented through the combination of experiments and crystal-plasticity simulations.The experimental campaign ...
Efficient Calculation of Stabilization Parameters in RF Power Amplifiers
This paper proposes an efficient method for the calculation of the stabilization parameters in RF power amplifiers operating in periodic large-signal regimes. Stabilization is achieved by applying the principles of linear ...
Evaluating Disruptive Innovation Project Management Capabilities
Firms must adapt to a business environment in constant flux. Economic and political factors and the constant interruption of new technologies force firms and organizations to change and to adapt, so that they are not left ...
Fuzzing the Internet of Things: A Review on the Techniques and Challenges for Efficient Vulnerability Discovery in Embedded Systems
With a growing number of embedded devices that create, transform and send data autonomously at its core, the Internet-of-Things (IoT) is a reality in different sectors such as manufacturing, healthcare or transportation. ...
FlexRQC: Model for a Flexible Robot-Driven Quality Control Station
(Elsevier Ltd., 2020)
As the investment on a dedicated quality control stations is not desirable for limited production batches. In general, those systems result in very optimised systems and the lack of flexibility since they are designed for ...
