The field of nanotechnology has been quickly growing over the last few decades and many different functional Nano Electro Mechanical Systems(NEMS) can now be made.
To further increase the possibilities and functionality of NEMS, new materials have to be characterized. Of the new materials which become available at the nanoscale, graphene is...

Flushing basins have been used at several locations in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands in the past centuries to maintain the navigational depths of harbour channels. These locations are not in use anymore or are only partly responsible for channel maintenance. This thesis encompasses a study to optimize the geometric parameters of a...

The growth of electricity generated by renewables increases the intermittency of the Dutch electricity production. To deal with this, the Dutch power system requires a higher amount of flexibility in the future. Demand response with heat pumps is one of the options with a high potential to provide flexibility, because it offers the potential to...

Both coaches and cyclists nowadays determine the training schedules for important races based on experience
and gut-feeling. Data are available for the evaluation of training schedules, but a sound scientific
method of accomplishing this does not yet exist. The biggest hurdle in developing such a method for cycling
is the absence of...

Over the last 20 years, the Chinese corporations have accumulated essential technological competencies such as those in the consumer goods manufacturing and information technologies. Therefore, Chinese multinational enterprises (MNEs) have high global ambitions to expand their reach into the foreign markets as an important role in contributing...

Yachts are built to provide guests with a unique experience. In order to provide this experience, yachts are often anchored at special locations. Captains prefer to use a single bow anchor when they moor the vessel. Problems are reported with respect to the availability while yachts are at anchor. These are caused by environmental forces....

More than forty years after its introduction, Simplified General Perturbation Theory No. 4 (SGP4) is still currently in use as the de facto standard in orbit propagation and in generating Two-Line Elements (TLEs). Unfortunately, the positioning error that results from the generated TLEs have remained relatively unchanged and continue to increase...

Drag measurements on bluff-bodies such as bobsleighs using force balance systems have been in prevalence for a few decades. However these studies do not reveal anything on the flow behaviour around the body. In the recent past, various flow visualization techniques have been applied to investigate the flow behaviour around bobsleighs. Even...

For the design and optimization of different processes and technologies in the chemical and petrochemical industry, the knowledge of the accurate vapor-liquid phase equilibrium of hydrocarbons and their binary mixtures is fundamental. The main focus of this thesis is the binary mixtures of methane with various n-alkanes and the binary mixture of...

The Bristol Channel has one of the largest tidal ranges in the world, with a mean tide of nearly 10.5 m at Avonmouth, and speculations on how to harness this energy date back well over a century. One method is tidal range by the use of tidal lagoons, which operates on principles akin to hydropower. The lagoon is essentially an enclosed reservoir...

Knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD) is the process that extracts new knowledge from data. Data scientists program their solutions of their KDD challenges in data mining programming scripts. Data mining programming scripts contain multiple or all steps of the KDD process. In other words, these scripts start with data and end with knowledge....

Improving energy efficiency is marked as one of the key strategies to tackle global warming. Therefore policy makers try to design policies that steer our society towards a more energy efficient way of living. An important target for policy makers is the residential sector. Households use fuel and electricity, to power all sorts of residential...

EU climate goals force EU member states to increase the share of renewable electricity generation in their respective electricity markets. To reach these climate goals, offshore wind energy is regarded as one of the main technologies that can contribute to a full transition towards a fossil-free electricity system. Furthermore, 230 Gigawatts (GW...

The growing interest in organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) based power systems has encouraged ample amount of literature on the design methodologies for unconventional turbo-machinery. These machines generally operate in the so-called Non-Ideal Compressible Fluid Dynamic (NICFD) region of the working fluid where the thermophysical properties and...

This research investigates the role of how Finite Element simulation models reproduced progressively crushed Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) parts. The proposed work is motivated by the research questions concerning what are the relevant critical modeling strategies that accurately reproduce the behavior of in-plane crushed laminated...

This work is on the extension of the SWIFT method to option pricing problems where the sum of lognormals occurs. The SWIFT method (ShannonWavelet Inverse Fourier Technique) is extended to the valuation of geometric Asian options and arithmetic Asian options with a Lévy process as underlying price process and the valuation of European options...
