This project proposes a series of experiments that involve plasma synthetic jet actuators. The first experiment will perform a jet characterisation experiment that will research the effect of orifice geometry on the overall performance of the actuator. The second experiment will built upon the first experiment and will use a plasma synthetic jet...

Fluid bearings have superior wear behavior but still the lifetime of this concept is in not infinite. This wear gets especially troublesome when surface textures are used that can get worn away completely. In this thesis two mechanisms utilizing surface textures for pressure buildup in a lubricating film using magnetorheological (MR) fluids are...

This thesis provides an exposition of the theory of Active Inference in a control theoretic context. Active Inference is a remarkably powerful neuroscientific theory that unifies many characteristics of the biological brain. As such, Active Inference provides a valid inspiration in search of improvements in bio-inspired robot control algorithms....

Sewer assets face a great challenge for being underground assets and for experiencing constant deterioration and aging. Reactive decisions are no longer technically nor economically viable, and hence asset managers are migrating to the implementation of proactive strategies. Despite this, managers are making decisions that are poorly justified,...

A highly accurate model is presented that predicts boundary layer flashback (BLF) for lean premixed hydrogen combustion. In contrast to existing models, that fail for lean hydrogen mixtures, the present model includes the effect of flame instabilities. The model is applied to study the effect of burner geometry on flashback tendency. A diverging...
