  • Big Data: It’s all about the strategy

    Big Data, a huge amount of data, is a challenge for researchers and analysts. Although the data sets can lead to many new insights after the evaluation, their complexity, fast rate of change, and simply their amount makes it almost impossible to process them with classic methods and without smart technical aids. Images, audios, videos, GPS satellite data, internal company information, social ...

  • Influence of the Stirring Mechanism on the Precision of the Fusion for VITRIOX GAS and ELECTRIC

    Introduction Homogenization of the melt is an important aspect of sample preparation for X-ray fluorescence analysis using fusion. Whether the fused bead breaks or remains mechanically stable after cooling, depends largely on the homogenization. Once a stable fused bead has been obtained, it is only possible to judge if the sample is truly homogeneously dissolved in the flux by way of ...

  • Derivation of flood frequency curves through a bivariate rainfall distribution based on copula functions: application to an urban catchment in northern Italy's climate

    The utilization of continuous approaches, namely analytical-probabilistic methods, has often been advocated for hydraulic device sizing, in order to overcome some deficiencies of the design event method. In the analytical distribution derivation, however, strong simplifying hypotheses are usually adopted. Rainfall depth and duration independency is the most unrealistic, even if it usually ...
