Body Mass Index (BMI) is a good indicator for measurements of Bone Mineral Density (BMD) which measures the density of minerals present in the bones using a special scan. This study was conducted to assess the association between BMI and status of BMD among 101 individuals who underwent Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) scan. 39 subjects had normal(More)
For demonstrating future smart grid concepts the MetaPV project, funded by the European Commission, is investigating the additional services of smart photovoltaic (PV) systems for grid support and hosting capacity extension. In this paper the concept of hosting capacity is introduced and illustrated to analyze the impact of expected PV development scenarios(More)
This paper presents an experimental study for the structural performance of reinforced concrete (RC) exterior beam-column joints rehabilitated using carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP). The present experimental program consists of testing 10 half-scale specimens divided into three groups covering three possible defects in addition to an adequately(More)
This article presents an approach to modelling of threephase photovoltaic (PV) inverters for RMS-based grid integration studies under balanced and unbalanced conditions. The inverter model was rigorously derived from accurate instantaneous value models that were simultaneously used for the development of inverter control and operations software. This(More)
Fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) confined concrete columns benefit from a confining effect due to restraint of the lateral expansion. More research work is necessary in order to investigate the behavior of RC columns confined by FRP under small eccentric loads. Eighteen FRP-confined concrete circular columns were tested under small eccentric compression(More)
