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...

In this thesis we examine various aspects of the output signal produced by the electrical pickup of an electric guitar. We do this by formulating a model of this output signal based on the one dimensional damped wave equation for the motion of one guitar string and (initially) a simple linear model for the output signal based on this motion....

This research project was initiated as a result of a curiosity and desire to investigate the applicability of surrogate modelling to analyse complex non-linear behaviour in aircraft structures. The study chose to focus on modelling damage in composite plates, and through a literature review, deemed that the generation of graphical outputs was a...

The project focuses on developing and implementing a 0D or 1D model for radial compressors and turbines, capable of both interpolating and extrapolating the performance maps. The proposed model will be calibrated using the data points available in the maps provided by the manufacturers to produce accurate mass flow for turbines and pressure...

The non-linear relation between Evapotranspiration (ET) and the atmospheric moisture demand in terms of vapor pressure deficit (VPD) has been widely reported. Observations point towards a diverse range of potential drivers; however, without uncovering why the identified factors are found to control diurnal ET-VPD hysteresis. Modelling efforts...

By combining the RACMO2.3 RCM output with GRACE non-tidal ocean and atmospheric pressure anomaly as well as geo-center motion corrections from 2003 to 2017, a physics-based model to estimate the vertical displacement of the Greenland surface bedrock is created. This model is able to convert the mass and pressure anomalies into vertical...

In submerged conditions groynes add resistance to a river, thereby increasing the water levels for a particular discharge. Groynes are modelled in two ways, either they are included in the bed topography when the grid resolution is sufficiently high or with a sub-grid parametrisation when the grid cell-size is larger than the geometry of the...

Vortex-induced vibration or as well-known as VIV is a phenomenon that has caught the attention of engineers along history. VIV is related to many engineering fields. In the offshore industry, it is of importance for risers that extract oil from the subsoil, and tethered anchors for floating units.<br/>The main aim of the thesis is to model the...

A brief study to understand the physical driving forces concerning ice growth. These forces are mathematically described in a basic prediction model. Further complexity to the model is added through adopting various assumptions about the physical factors involved.

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...

Interdigitated back contact silicon heterojunction (IBC-SHJ) solar cells have demonstrated 26.6\% world record efficiency by combining outstanding passivation of Si thin film layers with the absence of front shading contact in the crystalline silicon (c-Si) absorber bulk. Furthermore, this type of solar cell merges advantages of c-Si with Si...

Airbus Friedrichshafen is working on the development of a milliNewton HEMPT (High Efficiency<br/>Multistage Plasma Thruster): an electrostatic thruster concept suitable for small satellite<br/>propulsion. An engineering model, the mN-μHEMPT, has been built and tested in vacuum,<br/>generating thrust levels in the range of 1 to 5 mN. Although the...

High-fidelity hybrid RANS/LES methods are unable to accurately predict the transition from laminar to turbulent boundary layer flows. Usually resulting in an incorrect prediction of boundary layer characteristics. In this study, a hybrid RANS/LES model was developed for transitional boundary layer flows. The transitional kkL-omega turbulence...

Integration of bifacial photovoltaic module with a noise barrier (PVNB) has emerged as one of the promising innovation in the building integrated PV (BIPV) system application. By having the advantage to absorb both the light incident from the front and the rear side of the cell, bifacial PV module is suitable for a vertical installation...

The study into sand wave dynamics in South Channel has commenced after large dune forms were observed in monitoring campaigns following the channel deepening project of the Port of Melbourne. The project involved deepening of the harbour berths and channels, but more importantly, it involved the deepening of South Channel in Port Phillip Bay....

In hydrological models evaporation is often still quite uncertain. Potential evaporation is used as input, but the modelling of plant stresses is not always accurate enough to describe the behaviour in reality. In situ measured actual evaporation data is rare, and doing measurements is time consuming and expensive. With the advance of satellite...

Induction heating is used to heat offshore pipeline field joints to a required temperature for application of anti-corrosion coatings. The objective of induction heating is to obtain a uniform surface temperature of typically 230 ± 10 °C in a time-span of minutes. The desired temperature profile of the field joint, also known as heat profile is...
