The global trend towards urbanisation explains the growing interest in the study of the modification of the urban climate due to the heat island effect and global warming, and its impact on energy use of buildings. Also urban comfort, health and durability, referring respectively to pedestrian wind/ thermal comfort, pollutant dispersion and wind-driven rain(More)
BACKGROUND The common event in transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) or prion diseases is the conversion of host-encoded protease sensitive cellular prion protein (PrPC) into strain dependent isoforms of scrapie associated protease resistant isoform (PrPSc) of prion protein (PrP). These processes are determined by similarities as well as strain(More)

There is no state of the art computational model that is good enough for predictive simulation of the complete failure process in laminates. Already on the single ply level controversy exists. Much work has been done in recent years in the development of continuum models, but these fail to predict the correct failure mechanism in cases where matrix cracking(More)
