  1. Rheological evaluation of PE waste-modified bitumen with particular emphasis on rutting resistance 

    Kakar M.R.; Mikhailenko P.; Piao Z.; et al. (2022)
    Plastic Waste for Sustainable Asphalt Roads
    In Europe approximately 29.1 Mt of waste plastics were collected in 2018 and 7.2 MT (24.9%) were landfilled. According to the information from the Swiss environmental agency (FOEN) more than 85% of waste plastic in Switzerland is incinerated or used as fuel and only less than 10% is reused or recycled as raw materials. This chapter presents the rheological properties of asphalt binder-plastic blends that were investigated using the dynamic ...

  2. Network mechanisms and network models 

    Stadtfeld C.; Amati V. (2021)
    Research Handbook on Analytical Sociology
    This chapter introduces the concept of network mechanisms and compares it to the notion of social mechanisms in Analytical Sociology. It discusses how statistical network models and empirically calibrated simulation models are applied to investigate network mechanisms. Different statistical network models are reviewed and compared, in particular conditional uniform graph (CUG) tests, quadratic assignment procedure (QAP) regressions, ...

  4. Technology, Innovation and Healthcare 

    Richards, Bernadette J.; Taylor, Mark; Sage Jacobson, Susannah (2022)
    This timely book emphasizes the importance of regulation in enabling and channelling innovation at a time when technology is increasingly embedded in healthcare. It considers the adequacy of current regulatory approaches, identifying apparent gaps, risks and liabilities, and discusses how these might be collectively addressed. The authors present possible solutions that balance the protection and promotion of public trust in healthcare ...

  6. Molecular and Functional Imaging in Central Nervous System Drug Development 

    Künnecke, Basil; Honer, Michael; Pagano, Gennaro; et al. (2021)
    Molecular Imaging: Principles and Practice
    To date, there is an ever-increasing plethora of imaging methods available for studying biological systems in vivo, which are of interest for drug discovery and development. During discovery and early preclinical development phases, microscopy techniques including intravital microscopy are indispensable as they provide the exquisite resolution required for studying molecular events at cellular and subcellular resolution. For example, the ...

  7. The phyllosphere mycobiome of woody plants 

    Sieber, Thomas Niklaus (2021)
    Forest Microbiology. Volume 1, Tree Microbiome: Phyllosphere, Endosphere and Rhizosphere
    The global leaf surface of woody plants is estimated to be several times as big as the land area. This huge and diverse habitat is colonized by microorganisms whose number of individuals exceeds the number of stars in the universe many times over. Fungi make up a large part of the leaf colonizers. Fungi colonize both the leaf surfaces and the interior of the leaves. Most fungi that penetrate the leaves are harmless symbionts. They are ...

  8. Magnetic field interpolation for remote magnetic navigation in minimally invasive surgery 

    Charreyron, Samuel; Nelson, Bradley (2022)
    Woodhead Publishing Series in Electronic and Optical Materials ~ Magnetic Materials and Technologies for Medical Applications
    Interpolation of magnetic field data can be used to model the fields generated by magnetic navigation system (MNS) for applications in medical robotics. Prediction of magnetic fields is required for the control of magnetically navigated tools at arbitrary positions in the workspace of an MNS. In this chapter, various interpolation methods are detailed and compared. The methods are divided into structured grid interpolation ones that perform ...

  9. Transgenerational epigenetics and psychiatric disorders 

    Gapp, Katharina; Franklin, Tamara B. (2021)
    Epigenetics in Psychiatry
    Although controversial, there is increasing evidence from a variety of disciplines suggesting that transgenerational epigenetic inheritance is a mechanism that can act as an environmentally driven rapid form of adaptation in mammals. It has been suggested that transgenerational epigenetic inheritance may play a role in psychiatric disorders because the risk of developing a psychiatric disorder is heightened by exposure to stressful events, ...

  11. Die Erfindung des Verblendsteins 

    Potgeter, Wilko (2022)
    Berichte zur Bauforschung und Konstruktionsgeschichte
    Keine Epoche war für unseren heutigen Blick auf den Backstein so prägend wie das 19. Jahrhundert: Ab den 1820er-Jahren entfaltete sich eine bis ins frühe 20. Jahrhundert reichende Architekturströmung des ziegelsichtigen Bauens, die zeitgenössisch als ›Backstein-Rohbau‹ bezeichnet wurde. Anders als der Name suggeriert, waren die ziegelsichtigen Fassaden aus technischer Sicht keineswegs ein rohes Abbild der inneren Konstruktion. Die besonderen ...
  12. Media Attention for CJEU Case Law 

    Dederke, Julian (2022)
    Studies on International Courts and Tribunals ~ Researching the European Court of Justice
    Newspapers as the main media of political coverage continue to be primary outlets for reports and opinions on collectively binding decisions. Following a quantitative research strategy, this chapter introduces a new methodological approach that allows us to systematically capture media attention and public salience of court decisions. It provides insight into a new dataset for newspaper coverage of more than 4,000 CJEU decisions in eight ...

  15. Integrative ensemble modeling of proteins and their complexes with distance distribution restraints 

    Jeschke, Gunnar; Esteban-Hofer, Laura (2022)
    Methods in Enzymology ~ Advances in Biomolecular EPR
    Many proteins and protein complexes exhibit regions that are intrinsically disordered. Whereas an arsenal of techniques exists to characterize structured proteins or protein regions, characterization of the vast conformational space occupied by intrinsically disordered regions remains a challenging task due the ensemble-averaging nature of many techniques that provide mean value restraints. More representative information can be gained ...

  16. Land use modeling: From farm to food systems 

    van Zanten, Hannah H.E.; Müller, Adrian; Frehner, Anita (2022)
    Food Systems Modelling
    In this chapter we discuss how methodological choices can lead to different solutions when assessing land use. We focus on the following three methodologies: Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Land Use Ratio (LUR), and the food systems approach. Each method has its own strengths. LCA offers the best estimates of how we should change our diets at the margin in the near term to reduce land use (or other environmental impacts). The LUR provides ...

  17. Der Kosmos des Entwerfens 

    Kretz, Simon (2020)
    Der Kosmos des Entwerfens ist eine Reise durch die unsichtbaren Gedanken- und Erkenntnisprozesse des entwerfenden Denkens. Anhand einfacher Beispiele wird Schritt für Schritt das Entwerfen erforscht. Dabei werden sowohl kreatives Experimentieren und spekulatives Denken beleuchtet als auch erkenntnisorientiertes Testen, iteratives Entwickeln und abduktives Folgern. Das Resultat ist eine zusammenhängende Gedankenfigur, eine erhellende ...
  18. The Cosmos of Design 

    Kretz, Simon (2020)
    The Cosmos of Design is a journey through the characteristic features of design thought processes that usually occur unconsciously. With the help of simple examples, designing is explored step by step: Creative experimentation and speculative thinking are highlighted in addition to cognition-oriented tests, iterative loops and abductive conclusions. The result of this study is a coherent pattern of thought, an enlightening philosophy of ...
