This paper deals with some problems of the ceiling plate, made of the Cobiax-system. Cobiax provides a system to produce voided, biaxial, flat plate slabs as a high-quality concrete solution for large spans and slim slabs. Plastic voids in the shape of spheres or flattened spheres are contained in steel cages and put into concrete structures to create longer spans and reduce vertical loads. The presented plate is made of cobiax balls with a diameter of 27 cm located outside the area of columns. Probability analysis of Monte-Carlo method in software Ansys is presented. Input parameters are changing according to Gauss or triangular distribution.

    In general, particle filters need large numbers of model runs in order to avoid filter degeneracy in high-dimensional systems. The recently proposed, fully nonlinear equivalent-weights particle filter overcomes this requirement by replacing the standard model transition density with two...

    When an artificial neural network is used to determine the value of a physical quantity its result is usually presented without an uncertainty. This is due to the difficulty in determining the uncertainties related to the neural model. However, the result of a measurement can be considered valid...

The probability distribution of incubation time is the major determinant of the relation between the incidences of HIV infection and...

    While computable general equilibrium (CGE) models are a well-established tool in economic analyses, it is often difficult to disentangle the effects of policies of interest from that of the assumptions made regarding the underlying calibration data and model parameters. To characterize the...
