Abstract: Experiments and numerical studies have demonstrated that the power extracted by the wind plant is directly and proportionately related to the transport of mean kinetic energy - here the parting point. This is intimately tied with the balance of turbulence kinetic energy. These relations are shown through wind tunnel experiments and large eddy simulations ...

Abstract: During our daily life, we depend on memories of past experiences to plan future behaviour. These memories are represented by the activity of specific neuronal groups or ‘engrams’. Neuronal engrams are assembled during learning by synaptic modification, and engram reactivation represents the memorized experience. Engrams of conscious memories are initially stored in the hippocampus ... Read more about "BMI SEMINAR // Marlene Bartos - Emergence of stable and dynamic memory engrams in the hippocampus"

Limited data on strong earthquakes and their effects on structures poses one of the main challenges of making reliable risk assessments of tall buildings. For instance, while the collapse safety of tall buildings is likely controlled by large magnitude earthquakes with long durations and high low-frequency content, there are few available recorded ground motions to ...

Abstract: Graphene is an attractive candidate for carbon-based electronic devices. However the absence of band gap is a major hindrance for this promising application. There is a need to develop facile routes for engineering the band gap via molecular functionalizations. The challenge resides in the fact that graphene is assumed to be chemically inert. [1] ...
