On a variational formulation of the Maximum Energy Dissipation principle for nonequilibrium chemical thermodynamics
In this work we revise the applicability of the optimal control and variational approach to the maximum energy dissipation (MED) principle in non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The optimal control analogies for the kinetical ...

Project Neptune: Improved Operation of Water Distribution Networks
Water service providers (WSPs) in the UK have statutory obligations to supply drinking water to all customers that complies with increasingly stringent water quality egulations and minimum flow and pressure criteria. At ...
Pressure control in district metering areas with boundary and internal pressure reducing valves
Despite operational improvements over the last 10-15 years, water utilities still are losing a significant amount of potable water from their networks through leakage. The leakage is managed on the one hand by reactive and ...
The effect of spatialization in a data sonification exploration task.
(ICAD 08 (International Conference of Auditory Display), 24-27 June 2008, Paris, France, 2008-06-24)
This study presents an exploration task using interactive sonification to compare different sonification mapping concepts. Based on the real application of protein-protein docking within the CoRSAIRe project (« Combinaisons ...
Unequal error protection using LT codes and block duplication.
Luby Transform (LT) codes are powerful packet erasure codes with low encoding and decoding complexity. We provide a simple method to improve the bit error rate performance of LT codes. Moreover, we exploit our method ...
Practical channel-adaptive video streaming with fountain codes.
Video streaming is sensitive to packet loss, which can severely damage the quality of the received video. Video communication systems that rely on application-layer forward error correction (FEC) to combat packet loss ...
