• #### Assessment of a Low Profi le Planar Antenna for a Wireless Sensor Network Monitoring the Local Water Distribution Network ﻿

(Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2014-12-16)
This paper presents an assessment on the suitability of a low-profi le planar antenna for a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) application monitoring the water supply at Fire Hydrants (FHs). The antenna must have a low pro ...
• #### An assessment of auditory-guided locomotion in an obstacle circumvention task ﻿

(Springer, 2016-02-15)
This study investigated how effectively audition can be used to guide navigation around an obstacle. Ten blindfolded normally sighted participants navigated around a 0.6 x 2 m obstacle while producing self-generated mouth ...
• #### Assessment of Carotid Plaque Inflammation in Diabetic and Nondiabetic Patients—An Exploratory Ultrasmall Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study ﻿

(Elsevier, 2017-04-01)
$\textit{Background:}$ Ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO)-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging enables the identification of inflammation within the atheroma, predominantly by USPIO uptake by macrophages ...
• #### Assessment of Dynamic Closure for Premixed Combustion LES ﻿

(Taylor & Francis, 2015-08-04)
Turbulent piloted Bunsen flames of stoichiometric methane-air mixture are computed using LES paradigm involving an algebraic closure for the filtered reaction rate. This closure involves filtered scalar dissipation rate ...
• #### Assessment of early treatment response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer using non-mono-exponential diffusion models: a feasibility study comparing the baseline and mid-treatment MRI examinations ﻿

(Springer, 2016-10-31)
$\textit{Objectives}$: To assess the feasibility of the mono-exponential, bi-exponential and stretched-exponential models in evaluating response of breast tumours to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) at 3 T. $\textit{Methods}$: ...
• #### Assessment of ice flow dynamics in the zone close to the calving front of Antarctic ice shelves ﻿

(International Glaciological Society, 2015-12-01)
We investigate the relationship between four ice-shelf characteristics in the area close to the calving front: ice flow speed, strain rate, ice thickness and shelf width. Data are compiled for these glaciological parameters ...
• #### Assessment of LES Subgrid-scale Models and Investigation of Hydrodynamic Behaviour for an Axisymmetrical Bluff Body Flow ﻿

(Springer, 2016-07-30)
This work is concerned with the investigation of fluid-mechanical behaviour and the performance of different subgrid-scale models for LES in the numerical prediction of a confined axisymmetrical bluff-body flow. Four ...
• #### Assessment of maternal vascular remodeling during pregnancy in the mouse uterus ﻿

(JOVE, 2015-12-05)
The placenta mediates the exchange of factors such as gases and nutrients between mother and fetus and has specific demands for supply of blood from the maternal circulation. The maternal uterine vasculature needs to adapt ...
• #### Assessment of multireference approaches to explicitly correlated full configuration interaction quantum Monte Carlo ﻿

(American Institute of Physics Publishing, 2016-08-07)
The Full Configuration Interaction Quantum Monte Carlo (FCIQMC) method has proved able to provide near-exact solutions to the electronic Schrödinger equation within a finite orbital basis set, without relying on an expansion ...
• #### Assessment of myocardial and LV blood pool post-contrast T1 evolution: comparison between healthy subjects and patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ﻿

(2013-01-30)
• #### Assessment of non-invasive ICP during CSF infusion test: an approach with Transcranial Doppler ﻿

(Springer, 2015)
Objectives. This study aimed to compare four non-invasive intracranial pressure (nICP) methods in a prospective cohort of hydrocephalus patients whose CSF dynamics was investigated using infusion tests involving controllable ...
• #### Assessment of regional grey matter loss in dementia with Lewy bodies: a surface based MRI analysis ﻿

(Elsevier, 2014-07-23)
Objective: To compare MRI patterns of cortical thinning in subjects with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and normal ageing and investigate the relationship between cortical thickness and clinical ...
• #### Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Half-Joint Structures: Dealing with Deterioration ﻿

(Prestressed Concrete Institute, 2014)
In the US and UK the existing infrastructure is aging and the safety is sometimes questioned. Of all bridges in the US, constructed with reinforced concrete (RC), around 10% are classified as structurally deficient or ...

• #### Assessment of the impact of the scanner-related factors on brain morphometry analysis with Brainvisa ﻿

(2011-12-21)
Abstract Background Brain morphometry is extensively used in cross-sectional studies. However, the difference in the estimated values of the morphometric measures between patients and healthy subjects may be small and hence ...
• #### An assessment of the lattice strain in the CrMnFeCoNi high-entropy alloy ﻿

(Elsevier, 2016-09-28)
The formation of single phase solid solutions from combinations of multiple principal elements, with differing atomic radii, has led to the suggestion that the lattices of high-entropy alloys (HEAs) must be severely ...
• #### Assessment of the MUSTA approach for numerical relativistic dynamics ﻿

(EDP Sciences, 2015-03-04)
Aims. We evaluate some approximations for solving the equations of special relativistic hydrodynamics within complex geometries. In particular, we assess the following schemes: the Generalized FORCE (GFORCE) and MUlti ...
• #### Assessment of turbulence model performance: Large streamline curvature and integral length scales ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015-12-10)
For the flow over curved surfaces, an extra wall-normal pressure gradient is imposed to the flow through excessive surface pressure, such that the flow turns in alignment with the surface. In turn, turbulent fluctuations ...
