The cost of foundation installation can be up to 40% of the total installation cost of offshore wind turbines. Suction caisson foundations can significantly reduce this figure.

Enzymatically regulated demineralisation of pathological bone using sodium hexametaphosphate

Description
The pathological formation of bone in soft tissue can result in significant disability, prevent prosthetic limbs from fitting, and limit joint movement.

Efficient adaptive stochastic Galerkin methods for parametric operator equations

Description
In this paper, we design and implement an efficient algorithm for solving elliptic PDE problems with correlated random data.

Photonic Weyl degeneracies in magnetized plasma
