There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

The adoption of distributed energy resources such as PV cells, electric vehicles and batteries in electric grids is increasing steadily. This brings new challenges for distribution networks. The current network tariffs were not designed for these types of usage and, in many cases, they are not adequate anymore. Thus, many new tariff frameworks...

This thesis is comprised of two main parts. In the first part of the thesis, we study the nonlinear Fokker-Planck (FP) equation that arises as a mean-field (macroscopic) approximation of the bounded confidence opinion dynamics, where opinions are influenced by environmental noises and opinions of radicals (stubborn individuals). The distribution...

Large-scale complex systems are characterized by a large number of interconnected variables and a diverse set of interactions. As the demand for the development and optimization of large-scale systems is growing, so does the need for better techniques to understand their underlying dynamic behavior and predict and manage their long-term...

The early Christian apologist Tertullian (ca. 160 - ca. 230 CE) queries in his De<br/>praescriptione haereticorum: “What indeed has Athens to do with Jerusalem? What concord is there between the Academy and the Church? What between heretics and Christians?” As the question raised by Tertullian is about the relation between different disciplines...

For an Autonomous Vehicle (AV) to traverse safely in traffic, It is vital it can anticipate the behavior of surrounding traffic participants using motion prediction. Current motion prediction approaches can be categorized into object-centered and object-agnostic methods and are primarily based on deep learning. The former relies on a human...

Economic growth, especially after the financial crisis of 2008, has been declining in many OECD nations. Declining economic growth has negative effects including a lower rate of productivity growth, stagnating standards of living, increases in income inequality etc. Many economists believe that stagnating fixed business investment is one of the...

Koeze, D.J. (author)
This thesis considers the mechanical properties of amorphous solids such as foams, emulsions, and granular media. Each of these systems consists of “particles” (bubbles, droplets, grains) in a dense, disordered structure. As a system is compressed, it eventually forms enough contacts between particles that it can support a load, including...

Nguyen, T.D. (author)
This study aims at developing a new set of equations of mean motion in the presence of surface waves, which is practically applicable from deep water to the coastal zone, estuaries, and outflow areas. The Generalized Lagrangian Mean method is employed to derive a set of Quasi-Eulerian mean three-dimensional equations of motion, where effects of...

Kidney stone formation is a global health problem with increasing prevalence. Stone formation is a physiochemical process involving crystallization of inorganic salts in the presence of biological constituents in the urinary system. To inhibit kidney stone formation, a better understanding of the underlying physicochemical mechanism of stone...

Open questions are whether life can be enabled in uninhabitable environments, and whether there is a limit to howmuch one can tune the speed of proliferation. Answering such questions has broad implications. It may reveal whether we can live in unforeseen habitats, whether we can slow down aging, and whether there are limits to lifespan. In this...

Microphones are the most popular devices used to convert sound into electrical signals. However, with the advent of sensor technology, transducers capable of measuring vector quantities are opening up many new possibilities. One such device is an acoustic vector sensor (AVS), which measures both acoustic pressure and particle velocity, and has...

Hospital waste has a major impact on the environment. The worldwide growth of hospital waste is the result of the growing world population and the increase in use of disposables. A circular healthcare economy may contribute to the reduction of hospital waste. The circular economy is a system in which waste is prevented and where waste is reused....

A large part of the wastewater produced worldwide is discharged without any treatment. This has several negative consequences, including the spread of diseases and contamination of the environment. One method to treat wastewater is called aerobic granular sludge (AGS), an advanced, compact technology that uses granules. Granules are spherical...

Distant Retrograde Orbits (DROs) are special orbits for third bodies in two-body systems. The third body revolves around the secondary – the smaller of the two primaries – in a retrograde way, meaning the direction is opposite to the direction that the primaries revolve around each other. DROs are not close to either of the primaries, making it...

To reduce the environmental impact of the aviation sector in Europe, climate goals have been set as stated in the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal. This reduction can be achieved by fleet replacement with electrified aircraft. Challenging is that electrified aircraft are yet in a conceptual phase and most likely suitable for smaller...

Background: Radiostereometric analysis (RSA) is a technique to assess early migration, which has a predictive value for early failure of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). To successfully analyze the RSA images it is important to have a sufficient amount of visiblemarkers with an acceptable three-dimensional distribution.<br/>Objective:...

The Flying-V novel aircraft design aims at reducing fuel consumption by an innovative low-drag, fuselage-free geometry. However, possible issues related to certification requirements have been noted regarding longitudinal handling qualities at low speed, the pull-up manoeuver, and the flight path angle response. This study aims at investigating...

The Earth-Moon system is constantly bombarded by meteoroids of different size and impact speed. Observation of the impacts on the Moon can enable thorough characterization of the Lunar meteoroid flux, which is similar to that of the Earth. While Earth-based Lunar observations are restricted by weather, geometric and illumination conditions, a...
