The European Union and the United States are proposing to bring in more strict flight vehicle emission criteria in their reports of the high‐level groups on aviation research, i.e. EU Flightpath 2050 and US Destination 2025. More fuel‐efficient aircraft must be developed to achieve this target. Moreover, the increasingly competitive aviation...

The microstructural aspects of rolling contact fatigue in rails were studied. The rail track is a critical component of the railway system and its long-term performance contributes crucially to the sustainable development of the railway system. The increasing demands of trains with a higher speed/capacity impose more severe load conditions on...

Dynamic analysis of large-size finite element models has been commonly applied by mechanical engineers to simulate the dynamic behavior of complex structures. The ever-increasing demand for both detailed and accurate simulation of complex structures forces mechanical engineers to pursue a balance between two conflicting goals during the...

The Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD), a measure of the scattering and absorption of light by aerosols, has been extensively used for scientific research such as monitoring air quality near the surface due to fine particles aggregated, aerosol radiative forcing (cooling effect against the warming effect by carbon dioxide CO2 ), aerosol long-term trend...

One of the most basic features that pervade biology is the existence of boundaries that separate living cells from their outer environments. Molecules responsible for the internal organization of a living cell must adapt to its boundaries, as the cell grows, divides, and changes in shape and size. In this thesis, we aim to understand how...

This research explores the possibility of a large-scale bulk terminal in West Europe dedicated to handle solid and liquid biomass materials. Various issues regarding the conceptual design of such a terminal have been investigated and demonstrated in this research: the potential biomass materials that will be the major international trade flows...

Conventional TiO2 based photocatalysts oxidize NOx to nitrates which do not automatically desorb and have to be washed away from the catalyst surface. To avoid this, the research described in this thesis aims to design new photocatalysts that can photo-reduce NO into N2 and O2. Previous efforts in the literature have shown that catalysts...

In this thesis, a referenced based scaling approach and its parameter extraction for the bipolar transistor model Mextram is proposed. It is mainly based on the physical properties of the Mextram parameters, which scale with the junction temperature and geometry of the bipolar transistor. The scalable electrical parameter in the scaling rules is...

The structural response of two variable stiffness composite panels under thermal and mechanical loads are characterized using experiments and analyses. These panels are advanced composite structures where the fiber angle varies continuously within each ply, and are manufactured using an advanced tow placement system. Both variable stiffness...

The aim of the study is to develop a ‘design tool’, that is a method to enhance the design and planning of facilities for the sustainable production of new knowledge. More precisely, the objective is to identify a method to support the conception of building complexes related to the long-term production of new knowledge. The tool is focused on...
