Quantum thermodynamics takes over from classical thermodynamics when systems are of the scale of single particles and quantum fluctuations have a noticeable effect. An interesting topic of research of this relatively new field is the quantum battery, which in this thesis consists of an array of N identical electron spin qubits. In an article by...

In 2013, Brabant Water (BW) adopted a new goal of <1 μg/l for As level in the drinking water, resulting in the need to enhance As removal at seven water treatment plants (WPT’s), including WTP Prinsenbosch (As = 2.6 μg/l). Earlier experiences of BW at WTP Dorst had shown that dosing of NaMnO4 to an aeration-filtration system efficiently...

In recent years the field of wireless charging has seen remarkable developments. More and more devices like mobile phones and laptops can be charged wirelessly, and larger equipment like electric vehicles are likely to follow the same path. The air gaps over which the power can be transferred keeps increasing, as do the
amount of power that...

The shipping industry accounts for a significant share in global GHG emissions. Especially since Business as Usual (BaU) scenario studies project that the emissions due to shipping could increase by 50 [%] to 250 [%] in the period to 2050 (IMO, 2015), shipowners face a potential regulatory threat. Major climate regulations for shipping already...

Even though several orbit visualization tools exist, the ability to compare multiple satellite orbits or manipulate time are not readily available with the current tools. Furthermore, most other visualization tools require additional effort or installations to work properly. To address these issues with other tools an interactive, web-based,...

Previous studies have investigated the remote appearance of Earth-like exoplanets in the prospect of retrieving biosignatures of planets orbiting extrasolar stars, utilizing the variation of (polarized) flux. However, these studies did not use horizontally inhomogeneous models that include (1) daily cloud observations of planet Earth accounting...

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is used extensively in the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease. Deep learning methods have proven to deliver segmentation results comparable to human experts in CMR imaging, however, no successful attempts have been made at fully automated diagnosis. This has been contributed to a lack of...

Delamination is one of the common failure types in the fiber composites. The trailing edge in the wind turbine blades, for example, is one of the structural components where the delamination is driven by mode III under predominantly flapwise loading. There has been an extensive effort in developing test procedures and test specimens for...

In this thesis, a pipeline is created consisting of two parts. In the first part, the moving objects (cars, cyclists, pedestrians) are detected in street-view imagery using image segmentation neural networks and a LIDAR-based moving object detection approach. In the second part, those moving objects are deleted from the image data and an image...

In the past years, climate change has caused an increasing number of extreme weather events. In the Netherlands this is, for instance, reflected by the growing amount of extreme rainfall events. This creates big issues for water management authorities like water boards. Water boards are often responsible for local streams, that cannot handle the...

The increase of energy consumption as well as the need to reduce green-house emissions trigger the shift from a fossil-fuel based society towards a sustainable society. With a constant increase in the installed power capacity, wind plays a key role in the global energy framework. The improvement of the technology opens up new targets for the...

Severe scoliosis is a deformity of the curvature of the spine, mostly occurring in children. It is currently treated by performing Halo Gravity Traction (HGT) to reduce the curvature prior to surgery. In this procedure, a Bremer halo ring is fitted around the child's head and connected to the skull with a numberof pins. During the 3-month...

Currently, measuring wear of the insert of knee implants can only be accurately done in vitro. There are yet no accurate in vivo techniques that can capture and deliver data in real time. Therefore, the main objective of the research reported in this thesis was to introduce and validate a polyethylene insert with integrated wear sensors into...
