Does context matter? Examining robbery reporting in a high crime country
Most empirical studies that examine why individuals report property crimes to the police have focused on Global North countries where crime rates are low. This study is situated in the most violent area of the world, Latin ...
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) ...
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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
Investigating the effect of nanovoid inelastic surface stress and the austenite–martensite interface inelastic stress on the martensitic growth at the nanovoid surface
In this paper, the effect of nanovoid inelastic surface stress and austenite (A)–martensite (M) interface inelastic stress on the martensitic growth at the nanovoid surface is investigated. Within the phase field approach ...
A cost-benefit analysis for the appraisal of social and market prices in the probabilistic seismic risk assessment of building portfolios: A methodology for the evaluation of disaster risk reduction programs
A cost-benefit analysis can be a milestone for the probabilistic seismic risk assessment of building portfolios. This approach appraises social, economic, and technical aspects as evaluation criteria, becoming a reliable ...
Coupled phase field and nonlocal integral elasticity analysis of stress-induced martensitic transformations at the nanoscale: boundary effects, limitations and contradictions
In this paper, the coupled phase field and local/nonlocal integral elasticity theories are used for stress-induced martensitic phase transformations (MPTs) at the nanoscale to investigate the limitations and contradictions ...
Estimation of the impact of biomass burning based on regional transport of PM2.5 in the Colombian Caribbean
Deterioration of air quality due to the increase in atmospheric emissions from biomass burning (BB) is one of the major environmental problems worldwide. In this study, we estimated the contributions of BB to PM2.5 ...
Spatiotemporal assessment of particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5) and ozone in a Caribbean urban coastal city
Air pollution has become a critical issue in urban areas, so a broad understanding of its spatiotemporal characteristics is important to develop public policies. This study analyzes the spatiotemporal variation of atmospheric ...
