In 2013, Brabant Water (BW) adopted a new goal of <1 μg/l for As level in the drinking water, resulting in the need to enhance As removal at seven water treatment plants (WPT’s), including WTP Prinsenbosch (As = 2.6 μg/l). Earlier experiences of BW at WTP Dorst had shown that dosing of NaMnO4 to an aeration-filtration system efficiently...

An increase in air traffic demand, aging pavement infrastructure, and limited funds make pavement management decision making a difficult process. Pavement management systems (PMS) are essential for pavement management. PAVER, the most common airport pavement management system (APMS) assists pavement managers by identifying the surface condition...

Personnel shortage will become a major public health problem in many countries in the near future, and one of the main causes of this problem is societal aging (Burke et al., 2013). The goal of this study is to discover the effect and the future affordability of societal aging on health care systems across the OECD, to investigate which policies...

Heat pumps represent an effective technology to convert electrical energy to thermal energy through the expansion and compression of a refrigerant. Heat pumps are becoming increasingly more efficient
which decreases energy consumption. However as heat pumps are getting increasingly more efficient, complexity is also increasing which leads to...

Pyrolysis oil (BPO), derived from biomass via the fast pyrolysis process is a potential substitute for petroleum fuels. Due to its distinct physical and chemical properties (highly oxygenated, chemically reactive), the possible range of stable and clean operation in combustion devices is smaller than for petroleum fuel and to enable use of...

Treatment of liver diseases is often done by means of interventional radiology and thereby needles are widely used. These needles are under constant development and therefore needle-tissue interaction data are necessary. The goal of this study is to provide data on needle forces during puncturing of liver blood vessels. These data can be used to...

Marginal Abatement Cost (MAC) curves rank emission abatement options according to their marginal implementation cost and are an extremely popular tool to draft energy strategies. Although relevant and elegant, MAC curves are often insufficient to justify the implementation of abatement options, as many of the ones ranked financially convenient...

Due to the environmental awareness of the last decades, the concept of Green Port is introduced and used regularly. Nevertheless, an agreed-upon definition does not exist, leading to the rise of questions about what they are and how to develop them. For that reason, the aim of this research is to analyze and define what a Green Port is and to...

The thesis investigates the possible space application of a commercial 3D NAND memory as a radiation monitor. Literature has indicated that both traditional 2D and 3D flash memories are sensitive to ionizing radiation. Where the track of particle could be seen passing through the 3D architecture. A flash memory cell stores data with a collection...

Vapor-liquid phase equilibrium (flash) calculations largely contribute to the total computation time of many process simulation models. As a result, process simulations, especially dynamic cases, are limited in the amount of detail that can be included due to time restrictions. In addition, under certain conditions flash calculations can fail to...

As global warming has become a prominent issue for mankind, scientists are working on every possible aspects to slow down its pace. Aviation emission contributes more and more to the anthropogenic climate impact. Contrails contribute to about 30% of the aviation induced RF. Among the options that are proposed to mitigate the formation of...

More than half a century after the first application of composite materials in aircraft, the accurate prediction of their failure remains a pressing and unresolved issue. Another important limitation continues to be the low transverse strength of unidirectional composite plies, which can lead to premature failure in common laminates such as the...

When competing standards are introduced into the market, the firms that introduce the standards often put considerable effort into becoming dominant. Such a face-off is called a standards battle. This level of competition can slow market adoption and increases costs for all those involved. It is therefore important to better understand standards...

Power outages can damage severely critical infrastructures such as telecommunication networks, financial services, water supplies and hospitals and completely shutting down production at companies. While most power blackouts usually last from some minutes to few hours, some can last days or even weeks. Furthermore, it is likely that these kinds...
