In this paper, evapotranspiration (ET) and leaf area index (LAI) were used to calibrate the SWAT model, whereas remotely sensed precipitation and other climatic parameters were used as forcing data for the 6300 km2 Day Basin, a tributary of the Red River in Vietnam. The efficacy of the Sequential Uncertainty Fitting (SUFI-2) parameter...

Over recent decades, the global population has been rapidly increasing and human activities have altered terrestrial water fluxes to an unprecedented extent. The phenomenal growth of the human footprint has significantly modified hydrological processes in various ways (e.g. irrigation, artificial dams, and water diversion) and at various...

Dutch & Dutch was founded in 2014 by a group of audio enthusiasts. With the power of physics and a sharp understanding of IT by their side, they started working on a set of speakers that sound amazing in any situation. From this technical perspective they developed speaker both for the living room and for professional goals. Dutch & Dutch...

This master thesis investigated the origin of the seemingly perennial (base) flow in a hydrological complex, Inselberg (a type of mountain) dominated catchment in the Municipality of Messica, Manica Province, Mozambique. Smallholders rely on these perennial flows, since they have three growth seasons, two of them during the dry period. This year...

This study presents an "Earth observation-based" method for estimating root zone storage capacity-a critical, yet uncertain parameter in hydrological and land surface modelling. By assuming that vegetation optimises its root zone storage capacity to bridge critical dry periods, we were able to use state-of-the-art satellite-based evaporation...

In this research we studied the behaviour of dredged glacial till in the creation of a landfill. An experimental approach is used where we primarily focussed on the settling and consolidation characteristics. Till is in general a well graded, non sorted material and segregation during dredging and transportation can be expected. The aims of this...

This study assessed the characteristics of and changes in the suspended particles and the associated bacteria in an unchlorinated drinking water distribution system and its reservoirs with different water sources. The results show that particle-associated bacteria (PAB) were present at a level of 0.8–4.5?×?103 cells ml?1 with a biological...

We report the main findings of our work on the behaviour of binary Fe-Cu and Fe-Au model alloys designed to explore routes to create new creep resistant steels having an in-built ability to autonomously fill creep induced porosity at grain boundaries. The alloying elements were selected on the basis of their ability to be brought in...

Local generation, distribution and consumption of renewable energy within neighborhood is an emerging application context for the concept of `sharing'. This position paper introduces a cross-cultural approach to enable `new' social practices of renewable energy sharing in neighborhoods. The approach is being developed based on ongoing field...

Phase transitions in Li-ion electrode materials during (dis)charge are decisive for battery performance, limiting high-rate capabilities and playing a crucial role in the cycle life of Li-ion batteries. However, the difficulty to probe the phase nucleation and growth in individual grains is hindering fundamental understanding and progress. Here...

The autonomous repair mechanism of creep cavitation during high-temperature deformation has been investigated in Fe-Au and Fe-Au-B-N alloys. Combined electron-microscopy techniques and atom probe tomography reveal how the improved creep properties result from Au precipitation within the creep cavities, preferentially formed on grain boundaries...

Advanced oxidation with O3 / H2O2 (peroxone) was conducted on pilot plant scale on pre-treated Meuse river water to investigate the conversion of organic micropollutants (OMPs) and the formation of bromate. Fourteen selected model compounds were dosed to the pre-treated river water on a regular basis to assess the efficiency of the peroxone...

The thermal-history dependence of the magnetoelastic transition in (Mn,Fe)2(P,Si) compounds has been investigated using high-resolution neutron diffraction. As-prepared samples display a large difference in paramagnetic-ferromagnetic (PM-FM) transition temperature compared to cycled samples. The initial metastable state transforms into a lower...

A mathematical model of the migration and deformation of cells on a cellular scale is simulated. The cells are represented by a boundary and a nucleus. The boundary and nucleus are divided into several points, where the boundary points as well as the nucleus points are connected to each other by a series of springs. The model considers one or...

Earthquakes, as a result of commercial extraction of natural gas out of deep soil, has become a frequently recurring phenomenon in the Province of Groningen. Historically earthquakes have never been an issue in the Netherlands, and the built environment is not prepared for this phenomenon. The purpose of this research was to find suitable...

Offshore structures are placed in regions where they can these structures can exhibit unfavourable dynamical behaviour when these ice floes fail in a crushing manner against the structures. Three modes of interaction have been observed: (1) intermittent crushing, (2) frequency locking, (3) continuous crushing. This master thesis has been...

A High-Speed Digital-to-Analog converter system is proposed that is controlled using USB 3.0. Possibilities to improve the refresh rate and resolution are researched to meet the standards of modern measurement systems. For instance, adaptive optics often uses a DAC in its feedback loop, but the USB DAC systems currently available provide...

The resistance of buildings to static loads is very well defined and regulated in codes compared with the resistance to dynamic loads. However in particular for high-rise buildings the resistance to dynamic loading is of great importance for the design and much less defined. The magnitude of vibrations depends on mass, stiffness and damping...
