Tarantini, Daniele (author)
In the last decades, the excessive increase in average global temperature related to a massive rise in greenhouse gas emissions showed the world how the fossil fuel society we live in today is drastically modifying and destroying the world we live in and is turning it in an un-habitable planet. Scientist all over the world made it clear that if...

The ongoing worldwide energy transition has prompted significant scientific interest in energy storage. Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries have become a standard for energy storage in mobile devices and electric vehicles for their mass-energy density. While industry standard lithium-ion cells are currently based on liquid electrolytes, solid...

Amsterdam and many other cities consist of a network of old quay walls, which sometimes have been constructed over a century ago. A large uncertainty exists concerning the current safety of these quay walls and their remaining service lifetime. In the current framework for the assessment of old urban quay walls, the influence of timber creep in...

Pre-piling templates are often used in the offshore industry to ensure the vertical installation of foundation piles for jacket structures. Boskalis is currently preparing a project that uses these templates in the Taiwan Strait, which is a region known for its relatively soft soils and seismic activity. Consequently, the piles are very long in...

In the Netherlands, dikes are the most commonly used structures to retain water and provide safety against flooding. In order to ensure the safety of these dikes against a number of different failure mechanisms such as backwards erosion piping, wave overtopping and macro stability, a detailed safety assessment has been created. The focus of this...

Silicon heterojunction solar cells employing transition metal oxides as carrier selective contact are of particular interest due to the potential of reducing parasitic absorption while featuring optimal electrical properties. Recently, a record efficiency of 23.5% was achieved by employing molybdenum oxide (MoOx) as carrier selective contact....

On a global scale, the present-day demand of coastal protections, port expansions and construction of artificial islands, rises. To be able to accommodate for all these environmental changes, complex dredging operations have to be performed. Depending on the type of soil and in-situ conditions, a suitable excavation and transportation method has...

Schuur, Mitchell (author)
In this thesis a parametric finite element model has been developed to predict the printability of concrete structures of arbitrary geometries. The model can be used to effectively explore design and process parameters to optimize printed objects. In addition, the model can be used to improve the reliability of the printing process, reduce the...

Nature-based solutions for water-resource challenges require advances in the science of ecohydrology. Current understanding is limited by a shortage of observations and theories that can further our capability to synthesize complex processes across scales ranging from submillimetres to tens of kilometres. Recent developments in environmental...

Gaining aerodynamic advantage is crucial in cycling, wherein drag force can account for 90% of resistance to a cyclist. The interaction of wind with the moving human and cycling equipment also contributes to drag. Testing equipment for aerodynamic properties in a wind tunnel is of interest to manufacturers in the sports industry. However, a...

The development in computational simulation techniques has brought significant progress in the realization of computational alloy design. The advantages are most significant when developing novel materials of which the research & development cycles are particularly time and energy (and hence cost) consuming, such as high-temperature alloys....

Canal Emilio Mitre is a navigation channel that runs through the Rio de la Plata estuary in South America. It grants access to the second largest inland waterway system in South America, covering (parts of) Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. The channel is a main bottleneck for navigation for two reasons; the channel has a...

The world of molecular biology is composed by a complex network of interactions that are analogous to electric circuits. They govern the functions required for life, from metabolism to locomotion. In these networks, the presence of network motifs were identified, recurring elements supposedly kept by evolution. One of them is called the...
