Mobility as a Service: ein Angebot auch für Einkommensarme? GIS-basierte Betrachtung vierer Ridepooling-Angebote in Hamburg

Christoph Aberle
Urbanes Ridepooling bietet die Möglichkeit, öffentlichen Nahverkehr flexibel zu ergänzen. Der Beitrag stellt die potenzielle Nutzbarkeit des Ridepoolings für Menschen in Einkommensarmut in Hamburg in den Mittelpunkt. Anhand einer GIS-basierten Methode werden vier Ridepooling-Angebote (ioki, CleverShuttle, MOIA, mytaxi match bzw. FREE NOW) hinsichtlich sozio-demografischer Merkmale der Population untersucht, die potenziell bedient wird. Bis auf einen Ausnahmefall - ioki am westlichen Stadtrand - bedienen die Anbieter zentrale Gebiete, in denen weniger Menschen arm sind, weniger Menschen...

Digitaler Freischwimmer : ein Online-Angebot für Lehrende

Sabine Schermeier & Nicole Podleschny
Hochschulen sollen Studierende befähigen, neben Fach- und Sozialkompetenzen auch Medienkompetenz zu erwerben. Studierende sind grundsätzlich medienaffin, jedoch im lehrbezogenen Kontext immer nur so medienkompetent, wie die Anforderungen der Lehre es verlangen. Damit Lehrende digitale Medien in ihrer Lehre innovativ, motivierend und sinnvoll einsetzen, benötigen sie ein erstes didaktisches und technisches Orientierungsangebot sowie Good-Practice-Beispiele. Das Poster zeigt die Entwicklung des offenen Online-Angebots Digitaler Freischwimmer (https://www2.tuhh.de/zll/freischwimmer/) für Hochschullehrende. Dieser bietet einen ersten Überblick über die Vielfalt von...

Grant, Katerina Henrike Dörner, Tokushi Sato, Austin Echelmeier, Jorvani Cruz Villarreal, Mark S. Hunter, Max Oliver Wiedorn, Juraj Knoška, Victoria Mazalova, Shatabdi Roy-Chowdhury, Jay How Yang, Alex Jones, Richard Bean, Johan Bielecki, Yoonhee Kim … & Nadia Zatsepin
The world’s first superconducting megahertz repetition rate hard X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL), the European XFEL, began operation in 2017, featuring a unique pulse train structure with 886 ns between pulses. With its rapid pulse rate, the European XFEL may alleviate some of the increasing demand for XFEL beamtime, particularly for membrane protein serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX), leveraging orders-of-magnitude faster data collection. Here, we report the first membrane protein megahertz SFX experiment, where we determined a...

Natural and chemically modified post-mining clays : structural and surface properties and preliminary tests on copper sorption

Beata Jabłońska, Mark Busch, Andriy V. Kityk & Patrick Huber
The structural and surface properties of natural and modified Pliocene clays from lignite mining are investigated in the paper. Chemical modifications are made using hydrofluoric acid (HF), sulfuric acid (H2SO4), hydrochloric acid (HCl), nitric acid (HNO3), sodium hydroxide (NaOH), and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), at a concentration of 1 mol/dm3. Scanning electron microscopy is used to detect the morphology of the samples. Nitrogen adsorption isotherms were recorded to determine the specific surface area (SSA), mesoporosity, microporosity,...

The finite cell method for the computation of cellular materials

Stephan Gnegel
Offenporige Aluminiumschäume repräsentieren eine interessante Art von Materialien, die in vielen Bereichen wie dem Automobilsektor, der Luftfahrtindustrie und der Medizin Anwendung finden. Um Bauteile, die aus Schäumen bestehen, zu entwickeln, sind detaillierte Untersuchungen ihrer mechanischen Eigenschaften notwendig. Die Struktur von Metallschäumen besteht aus einer komplexen stochastischen Verteilung von Poren, und es erfordert einen hohen Arbeitsaufwand eine geeignete Finite Element Diskretisierung zu erstellen. Die Finite Cell Methode ist eine Kombination der Fictitious Domain Methode mit Finiten...

Long-term effects of modular product architectures: An empirical follow-up study

Erik Greve & Dieter Krause
The use of modular product architectures gives rise to a variety of effects in all areas of the company. So far, the effects that occur after a short period of time have been investigated - the effects that arise only after a certain period of time or a certain proportion of modules used are often neglected. The latter can, however, have a major influence on the economic targets, but are usually not taken into account...

Added value of coreference annotation for character analysis in narratives

Melanie Andresen & Michael Vauth
A central question for the analysis of literary texts in digital humanities is the identification of characters in the text. A simple approach would be to reduce the analysis to mentions of the character by its proper name as these are easy to retrieve. A more elaborate solution requires coreference annotation, identifying all mentions of a character in the text, irrespective of their form. Using the example of the novel Corpus Delicti by the German...

The “dark side” of big data analytics : uncovering path dependency risks of big data analytics investments

Thomas Wrona & Pauline Reinecke
Recently, information systems (IS) literature has shown an increasing interest in Big Data and Analy-tics (BDA) to gain competitive advantages. The predominant literature focuses on operational effec-tiveness and how companies use historical information and uncover hidden patterns to differentiate from competition. This paper addresses how the prevailing line of reasoning is limited and how stra-tegic risks from companies’ BDA-applications are neglected. Drawing on the theory of path depend-ency and resource-based view, it aims to expand...

In silico screening of modulators of magnesium dissolution

Christian Feiler, Di Mei, Bahram Vaghefinazari, Tim Würger, Robert Meißner, Bérengère J.C. Luthringer-Feyerabend, David A. Winkler, Mikhail L. Zheludkevich & Sviatlana V. Lamaka
The vast number of small molecules with potentially useful dissolution modulating properties (inhibitors or accelerators) renders currently used experimental discovery methods time- and resource-consuming. Fortunately, emerging computer-assisted methods can explore large areas of chemical space with less effort. Here we show how density functional theory calculations and machine learning methods can work synergistically to generate robust and predictive models that recapitulate experimentally-derived corrosion inhibition efficiencies of small organic compounds for pure magnesium. We further validate...

Supported Ag nanoparticles and clusters for CO oxidation: size effects and influence of the silver-oxygen interactions

Maximilian Lamoth, Milivoj Plodinec, Ludwig Scharfenberg, Sabine Wrabetz, Frank Girgsdies, Travis Jones, Frank Rosowski, Raimund Horn, Robert Schlögl & Elias Frei
Supported Ag catalysts on silica and corundum have been synthesized applying an improved impregnation technique. The resulting Ag particle sizes can be divided into three categories concerning: (I) bulk-like, (II) nanoparticles of 1-6 nm, and (III) in situ created Ag clusters below 1 nm. Ag nanoparticles and bulk-like Ag are investigated concerning their pretreatment dependence for CO oxidation showing that harsher pretreatment conditions need to be applied for smaller particle sizes, based on their tendency...
