Nonlinear dynamics of origami metamaterials: energetic discrete approach accounting for bending and in-plane deformation of facets
In this paper, we start the analysis of the nonlinear dynamics of structural elements having an origami-type microstructure and micro-kinematics, also known as origami metamaterials. We use a finite-dimensional Lagrangian ...
A beam model for duoskelion structures derived by asymptotic homogenization and its application to axial loading problems
(Elsevier Ltd., 2023)
Duoskelion structures have been recently introduced by Barchiesi et al. (2021) as a proof-of-concept motif for a new class of metamaterials. The properties of these periodic beam-like chiral structural elements have been ...
Narrative modelling: A comparison of high and low mass dwelling solutions in Afghanistan and Peru
(SAGE Publications Ltd., 2023)
Displaced populations are housed in various constructions, including lightweight predesigned structures. Theoretically, self-built heavyweight structures should ensure better temperatures and be closer to cultural norms. ...
Artisanal ceramic factories using wood combustion: A nanoparticles and human health study
The ceramics industry, resulting from developments of modern compounds, is a segment of great influence in worldwide sustainability. Artisanal ceramic factories based on wood combustion have significant risks for the ...
High Stress Levels and Trust toward the Government Are Associated with More Positive Attitudes toward COVID-19 Vaccines among French Students: A Pilot Study
Mistrust in COVID-19 vaccines may hinder vaccination campaigns. We looked at cognitive determinants of vaccination intentions against COVID-19. We were interested in (i) the effects of stress and (ii) the effects of ...
Association of Serum Pyridoxal Phosphate Levels with Established Status Epilepticus
Background The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of pyridoxine deficiency, measured by pyridoxal phosphate (PLP) levels, in patients admitted to the hospital with established (benzodiazepine-resistant) ...
Characterization of the Shells in Layer-By-Layer Nanofunctionalized Particles: A Computational Study
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2022)
Drug delivery carriers are considered an encouraging approach for the localized treatment of disease with minimum effect on the surrounding tissue. Particularly, layer-by-layer releasing particles have gained increasing ...
Understanding the determinants of e-wallet continuance usage intention in Malaysia
(Springer Science and Business Media B.V., 2022)
The present research aims to investigate the determinants of e-wallet continuance usage intention in Malaysia using extending Technology Continuance Theory (TCT) via examining four variables, namely price beneft, trust, ...
Solution of a paradox related to the rigid bar pull-out problem in standard elasticity
This paper aims at modeling pull-out tests of a reinforcement bar from a concrete matrix. The considered system is an elastic cylinder, within which is embedded a rigid bar placed along the central axis. The pull-out test ...
Elucidating cause-and-effect relationships of components affecting talent absorbing organisation
(Inderscience Publishers, 2022)
Organisations are required to identify, recruit, and foster talented individuals in order to optimise their own capacity in achieving business outcomes and build a competitive advantage in the future. The present study ...
