A practical approach for the consideration of single pile and pile group installation effects in clay: numerical modelling
(IOS Press, 2015)
In this paper, a practical approach for the consideration of single pile and pile group installation effects in clay is presented using some novel procedures implemented in the finite element (FE) software package PLAXIS ...
Examining the impact of neutrality on genetic algorithm population evolution
(SciTePress Digital Library, 2015-11-12)
This paper examines the introduction of neutrality as proposed by Kimura (Kimura, 1968) into the genotype-phenotype mapping of a Genetic Algorithm (GA). The paper looks at the evolution of both a simple GA (SGA) and a ...
Waternomics: A cross-site data collection to support the development of a water information platform
In Europe, 20 to 40% of water is being wasted due to poor infrastructure, consumer negligence and lack of proper resource management. Effective and efficient management of water resources requires a holistic approach ...
A living thick nanofibrous implant bifunctionalized with active growth factor and stem cells for bone regeneration
(Dove Medical Press, 2015-02-04)
New-generation implants focus on robust, durable, and rapid tissue regeneration to shorten recovery times and decrease risks of postoperative complications for patients. Herein, we describe a new-generation thick nanofibrous ...
Chondrogenic induction of mesenchymal stromal/stem cells from Wharton's jelly embedded in alginate hydrogel and without added growth factor: an alternative stem cell source for cartilage tissue engineering
(BioMed Central, 2015-12-30)
Background: Due to their intrinsic properties, stem cells are promising tools for new developments in tissue engineering and particularly for cartilage tissue regeneration. Although mesenchymal stromal/stem cells from bone ...
