Experimental research into the spalling behaviour of mortars and if it is possible to predict the spalling resistance. Research is divided into spalling experiments with varying parameters and experiments to analyse and characterize the pore structure. By combining both results, a first step is taken into a formula that is able to predict the...

Recirculation and infiltration of leachate in landfills are performed to accelerate the process of stabilizing organic matter in waste. At landfill De Kragge (Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands), leachate recirculation and infiltration measures started in March 2018. This research aims to provide insight related to leachate flow throughout the...

Powerful predictive AI systems have demonstrated great potential in augmenting human decision-making. Recent empirical work has argued that the vision for optimal human-AI collaboration requires ‘appropriate reliance’ of humans on AI systems. However, accurately estimating the trustworthiness of AI advice at the instance level is quite...

There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

Background and objectives: Mitochondria require oxygen to generate energy for essential cellular processes. An in-vivo non-invasive technique to monitor mitochondrial oxygen tension (mitoPO2) is the protoporphyrin IX-triplet state lifetime technique. Protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), one of the key components of heme, is naturally present in the...

The environment is an important part of the life for most organisms, including humans. Since its quality is integral for social welfare, ensuring and maintaining a high environmental quality is essential. The environmental testing market is dedicated to the testing of the three main components of environment: soil, water, and air. Since the...

The aerodynamic behaviour of a pitched baseball depends on the combination of the translational velocity, the rotational velocity in combination with the rotation axis and the seam positions. For small spin parameters the effect of seam positions dominates the Magnus effect. This study focusses on a visual understanding of the seam position by...

In order to gain more insight into the effects of propeller ducts on quadrotors in forward flight, this research analyses flight data obtained from free flight tests, performed in the Cyberzoo and the Open Jet Facility of the TU Delft. Using a quadrotor platform with detachable propeller ducts, both trimmed forward flight tests and flights...

The goal of this thesis is to build an artificial neural network(ANN) surrogate model, that predicts the crashworthiness performance of a structure. The structure used in this research is a thermoplastic fibre-reinforced composite aircraft subfloor section which is part of the SmarT multifUNctioNal and INteGrated thermoplastic fuselage (STUNNING...

To better understand and predict osteoarthritis, researchers are developing so-called coupled modelling workflows. Coupled workflows convert data from gait analysis studies to subject-specific tissue mechanical response estimations through the use of musculoskeletal and finite element models. The tissue mechanical response inside the joint is...

Since the first radio occultation measurements were performed to study planetary atmospheres, the calculations returning refractivity profiles always adopted the so-called "spherical symmetry assumption". This hypothesis imposes a null horizontal gradient of the atmospheric parameters within the region sampled during the occultation: a scenario...

Reducing fuel consumption is an increasingly important topic within aviation. One approach to accomplish this goal is reducing excess fuel weight being loaded on aircraft. Flight dispatchers and pilots load extra fuel to account for uncertainties present in trip fuel consumption, which is currently computed by the flight planning system (FPS)....

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management looks into the possibility of raising the awareness of Dutch citizens as policy measure to encourage travellers to travel in a more conscious and more climate-friendly manner. Scientific literature, however, shows contradictory results on the effectiveness of this measure. An ongoing academic...

<b>Introduction</b>: Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is a successful last-resort treatment for chronic pain patients, although its exact mechanisms of action (MOAs) still need to be unraveled. The MOAs of SCS partly rely on spinal mechanisms (gate control theory) and supraspinal mechanisms likely play a role as well. Pain processing involves a...

Offshore structures are often founded on mud-mat foundations which prevent the structure from settling excessively. Pressure differences are generated under mud-mats during removal from the seabed. These differences lead to a force that resists the uplift. A literature study on breakout resulted in a hypothesized distinction of four mechanisms...

Over the years, aero engines have evolved into the efficient turbofans present on commercial airliners today. Although these engines are very reliable, they still experience degradations in performance and reductions in component health. The degradation affects the operation of the engine, which can be measured using the pressure, temperature,...

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) systems for aviation applications have been considered for their use as APUs or powertrains, as standalone systems or in combination with gas turbines, and both fueled by reformed Jet-A or by hydrogen. Most existing studies focus on powertrain performance modelling. In this work, traditional tube-and-wing regional...

The Port of Rotterdam is one of the largest CO2 emitters of the Netherlands. One method to reduce its emissions is by implementing carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technologies. In this research two different CCU routes for industrial-scale n-caproate production are compared. The first route utilizes microbial electrosynthesis (direct route)...

Global warming causes coral bleaching which threatens the health and existence of coral reefs and therefore also the future of a lot of species, including human beings. Efforts to automate coral reef monitoring using annotated coral images to detect coral bleaching are hindered by the lack of a complete dataset that specifies the health and...

Global climate change affects mountain regions such as the European Alps. Consequently, glacier extents decrease, and proglacial areas, the areas that recently lost their ice cover, increase in size. These proglacial areas are subject to a high frequency and magnitude of geomorphological activity and act as a sediment source for downstream...
