Acidizing is a widely used technique for intensification of geothermal wells. At certain conditions, acid injection results in a formation of highly conductive channels, e.g. wormholes. The associated rock matrix dissolution is highly nonlinear and may influence the fluid flow as well as rock properties. Wormhole patterns and breakthrough time...

When containers are transported on synchromodal bookings from their origin to their destination, the transport supplier can decide which combination of trucks, trains, and ships to use. This gives transport suppliers many options to route the container through the synchromodal network. Current literature on the individual routing of containers...

Moving towards the Dutch circularity goals of 2050, this project aims to diminish the amount of construction waste released by the demolition of 282 post-war dwellings in the Nieuwenhuysenbuurt in Amsterdam West (1954). Through the use of a flexible and demountable building system, construction waste is diminished now and in the future.

Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has seen a recent surge in policy uptake, but currently lacks guidance on clear institutionalisation in practice (Burget et al., 2017; Owen et al., 2021). Formal standards have tremendous potential as a possible instrument in order to meet societal challenges due to the anticipatory and inclusive nature...

A Fall-Pipe system deposits rock on the seabed for the protection of submerged objects. Due to the irregular motion of a vessel on the waves the accuracy and efficiency of the rock dumping process is limited. This thesis develops a motion compensation system for a modular Fall-Pipe system developed by Vuyk Engneering. From literature it appears...

Some propellants currently used in space propulsion have the disadvantage of being dangerous to humans and the environment. A wellknown example of this are hydrazine and its derivatives which are toxic, corrosive, and carcinogenic. These disadvantages have led to a search for less hazardous storable liquid propellants, often referred to as green...

Flapping-Wing Air Vehicles (FWAV) are autonomously flying vehicles that use their flapping wings to simultaneously stay aloft and enable controllable flight. FWAVs that are capable of controllable flight are reported in literature, though a theoretical background of the aerodynamic performance of different attitude control mechanisms is absent...

Optimization of traffic signal control has been widely investigated by means of model-based strategies. In 2012 a new model-based controller was published, named Schedule-driven Intersection Control (SCHIC). This controller uses a job-scheduling algorithm to minimize the cumulative delay for all observed vehicles. The algorithms of SCHIC are at...

Wind turbines offer an appealing method for power generation. In the fight against global warming wind energy helps realise green house gas emission reduction targets. Moreover, given a globally increasing demand for energy, the role of wind energy is set to become even more important. Historically, the cost of wind energy has decreased...

Twisted and coiled polymer muscles (TCPMs) show promise to function as artificial muscles, because of their lightweight, low cost, large contraction, and respectively low hysteresis. A TCPM contracts when it is heated and extends when it is cooled. Different modeling and controlling techniques have been implemented. \cite{VanDerWeijde_2019}...

Purpose:The MR-linac is a novel hybrid system that is used in radiotherapy (RT) and combines irradiation with MR imaging. Novel adaptive image-guided radiotherapy techniques are developed for this machine. However, new qualityassurance (QA) techniques are required that check if the (adapted) planned radiation dose is the same as the dose given...

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a highly aggressive biliary tumor with a poor prognosis and limited treatment options. Various critical aspects of CCA development remain unclear. Lately, the dynamic process of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) was highlighted to play a crucial role in the fundamental mechanism of metastatic dissemination....

In the current moment in time, there are large societal transitions happening, such as the transition to sustainable energy or the transition towards a circular economy. Design-led transitions are societal transitions towards more sustainable futures, led by designers (Irwin, 2015). These transitions help us to move towards a more sustainable...

Integrated circuits (ICs) are susceptible to damage by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), which necessitates protection diodes. However, these diodes can cause leakage currents in the range of picoamperes, dominating the input current of CMOS ICs. This thesis presents the implementation of a low leakage bootstrapped ESD protection circuit for...

Laparoscopy involves the use of various instruments for performing different functions. As a consequence, time is spent in exchanging the various instruments, adding to the overall operation time. In order to reduce this overall operation time and solve this problem, the number of instrument exchanges need to be reduced. Reducing the number of...

Microgrids are a promising tool that can help transition the electricity grid towards a smart grid. They can provide significant benefits to the power grid in the form of increased reliability and flexibility. The microgrid controller sets the electricity consumption and generation of all controllable devices within the microgrid and controls...

This research is part of the project "Water Efficiency in Sustainable Cotton-based Production Systems” between Solidaridad Asia and TU Delft. The project aims to increase the livelihood of smallholder farmers in the Maharashtra, India through. A socio-hydrological (SH) model is used extensively in this research as an evaluation tool. However,...

In this report, the tidal method is used to estimate hydraulic aquifer parameters. The principle of the tidal method is to use head fluctuations in observation wells, caused by tidal motion in a sea or river, to determine regional hydrological characteristics of an aquifer system. As the wave propagates into the aquifer, the amplitude of the...

In cyber security, side-channel attacks (SCA) are of interest because they target the vulnerabilities in implementation rather than inherent vulnerabilities in the algorithm. Profiled SCA is especially interesting as it assumes that the adversary has unlimited access to a clone device that can generate sufficient traces to create a profile of...

Previous research assessing public organisations in the delivery of infrastructure projects mainly focuses on public project delivery organisations and their interaction with private parties. However, many challenges experienced by these project delivery organisations relate to the interaction with the public parent organisation. In practice,...
