We start this thesis by exploring the question whether there is more to be done with solid-state nanopores, given the success of nanopores for DNA sequencing applications.

The emergent hazards of chemical process systems cannot be wholly identified and are highly uncertain due to the complicated technical-human-organizational interactions. Under uncertain and unpredictable circumstances, resilience becomes an essential property of a chemical process system that helps it better adapt to disruptions and restore...

Bridge load testing can answer a variety of questions about bridge behavior that cannot be answered otherwise. The current governing codes and guidelines for bridge load testing in the United States are the 1998 NCHRP Manual for Bridge Rating through Load Testing and Chapter 8 of the AASHTO Manual for Bridge Evaluation. Over the last two...

Urban gas pipelines usually have high structural vulnerability due to long service time. The locations across urban areas with high population density make the gas pipelines easily exposed to external activities. Recently, urban pipelines may also have been the target of terrorist attacks. Nevertheless, the intentional damage, i.e. terrorist...

The deployment of gas diffusion electrodes (GDEs) for the electrochemical CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR) has enabled current densities an order of magnitude greater than those of aqueous H cells. The gains in production, however, have come with stability challenges due to rapid flooding of GDEs, which frustrate both laboratory experiments and...

2D nanoslit devices, where two crystals with atomically flat surfaces are separated by only a few nanometers, have attracted considerable attention because their tunable control over the confinement allows for the discovery of unusual transport behavior of gas, water, and ions. Here, the passage of double-stranded DNA molecules is studied...

The current navigation systems used in many autonomous mobile robotic applications, like unmanned vehicles, are always equipped with various sensors to get accurate navigation results. The key point is to fuse the information from different sensors efficiently. However, different sensors provide asynchronous measurements, some of which even...

Low activation energy (E<sub>a</sub>) and wide bandgap (E<sub>g</sub>) are essential for (p)-contacts to achieve effective hole collection in silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cells. In this work, we study Plasma-Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition p-type hydrogenated nanocrystalline silicon oxide, (p)nc-SiO<sub>x</sub>:H, combined with (p)nc...

Any catalyst should be efficient and stable to be implemented in practice. This requirement is particularly valid for manganese hydrogenation catalysts. While representing a more sustainable alternative to conventional noble metal-based systems, manganese hydrogenation catalysts are prone to degrade under catalytic conditions once operation...

Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) system is widely used in the deepwater drilling operation. Reliability assessment plays a critical role in the MPD system in the management of drilling operation risk and the prevention of blowouts. However, the reliability assessment of the MPD system is challenged due to its sequential operations and multiple...

Over many decades, significant efforts have been made to improve the strength-elongation product of advanced high strength steels (AHSSs) by creating tailored multi-phase microstructures. Successive solid-state phase transformations for steels with a well selected chemical composition turned out to be the key instrument in the realisation of...

The terrorist attack on the Abqaiq oil plant in Saudi Arabia on September 14, 2019 attracted global attention to the significant role of safety and security in the sustainable oil and gas supply chain and the vulnerability of supply infrastructures subject to intentional and unintentional damages. Different from other oil and gas supply...

Digital Elevation Model (DEM)-based mountain vertex extraction is one of the most useful DEM applications, providing important information to properly characterize topographic features. Current vertex-extraction techniques have considerable limitations, such as yielding low-accuracy results and generating false mountain vertices. To overcome...

Railway ballasted track stiffness is an important indicator to identify supporting condition that ensures that the facility is well designed and functioned. Although many studies have been performed on track stiffness based on experimental tests and finite-element methods, the factors influencing the track stiffness have not been completely...

Failure of bolts exposed to tension is generally avoided in the design of bolted connections due to the smaller deformation capacity of bolts than the connected plates. This is one of the reasons why few studies focus on the tensile failure behaviour of bolts. However, failure behaviour of bolts is essential for the advanced finite element...

Results of a 2-D transport model for a gas diffusion electrode performing CO2 reduction to CO with a flowing catholyte are presented, including the concentration gradients along the flow cell, spatial distribution of the current density and local pH in the catalyst layer. The model predicts that both the concentration of CO2 and the buffer...

Combining polymers with small amounts of stiff carbon-based nanofillers such as graphene or graphene oxide is expected to yield low-density nanocomposites with exceptional mechanical properties. However, such nanocomposites have remained elusive because of incompatibilities between fillers and polymers that are further compounded by...

Hydraulic properties of aquifer systems are usually estimated by conducting field experiments, which are called aquifer tests. Different approaches have been applied to simulate the drawdown data, such as graphical type curves, analytical solutions, and grid-based models. Since the type of groundwater system varies greatly from location to...

For preparing standardized sand specimens for physical modelling in geotechnics, especially for the geo-centrifuge tests, a “line-style” sand pluviator has been recently developed by TU Delft. Controlling the falling height of sand hopper, the width of hopper’s bottom gap and the relative moving speed between the hopper and the sample box,...
