To allow the incorporation of engine design in the Aircraft Initiator conceptual design tool, a modular engine design and performance estimation tool has been created, which is intended to allow the study of the effects of changes to engine architecture on the complete aircraft design. It generates estimates for engine thrust, specific fuel...

Transition experiments are thought to be important tools for achieving transformational change in the urban water system. The governance of these experiments is described as a key factor in the success of these experiments. This paper sets out to operationalize and validate an evaluative scheme for the appraisal of transition experiments. This...

Background and relevance
Annualy, 14500 Dutch women get diagnosed with breast cancer. When getting diagnosed, there are several treatment options. It gets more common that this decision is made by the patient and physician together. But breast cancer is something you endure together, and the naaste is also important in the breast cancer...

In this thesis, the applicability of a novel method – the Participatory Value Evaluation method – to the transition towards zero natural gas use at the local level of the case study neighborhood Hengstdal in Nijmegen was researched. The main objective of this thesis is to contribute to the development of the PVE method by researching the...

Increased international marine transport has increased the use of containers. This goes hand in hand with the increased demand for well-functioning container terminals. The speed at which containers can be handled on the container terminal is an important performance indicator for container terminals. In particular, the productivity of the Quay...

Background: Currently the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA) has a traditional three echelon supply chain consisting of suppliers that deliver to a warehouse and the warehouse that delivers to customers. However, the RNLA is interested in having its stock geographically spread for safety reasons. A solution for this would be to re-design the supply...

The CIGRE B1 – B3.49 JWG defined a standardised 145 kV inner-cone GIS cable termination design. This standardisation allows the creation of new common interface insulators. This would eliminate the planning hurdles due to the fact that the cable system is not usually defined at the time of switchgear manufacture. The new design also requires a...

To control fluid transport, microfluidic systems often make use of pressure driven flow and pneumatically actuated valves. However these require bulky external instrumentation. An integrated fluid control mechanism would make microfluidic systems more portable, closed and automated. The aim of this project was to create a pH-responsive membrane...

Cable terminations are essential for connecting a cable to a piece of equipment such as a circuit breaker, transformer, motor, etc. Proper terminations are of great importance in order to provide faultless cable systems. Improper terminations could result in overheating, partial discharges, eventual breakdown, flashover and breakdown in the...

Glass has been used for centuries. Originally to create weapons, jewellery and decorative ceramics. Nowadays as windows, reagent bottles and electronic devices. It’s only in the last two centuries that there has been substantial development of float glass. The resulting products provide comfort, protection, energy reduction, security and...

Simulation of multiphase flow in natural subsurface formations include selection of time-step size, i.e., the discrete snapshots (steps) over which the time-dependent nonlinear process is investigated. The simulation results would naturally depend on the size of the discrete time step, according to the order of accuracy of the implemented...

Synthetic polymers, in the emulsified form, have been utilized for enhanced oil recovery applications by using saline make-up water. However, there are concerns that have been raised about their injectivity. The large entangled polymer chains can clog the pore throats, giving a tendency to cause injectivity reduction. In this study, processing...

Ever since the late seventies great engineering effort has gone into increasing the fuel efficiency and reduction of the noise profile of aircraft. A concept that has been explored is the wingtip-mounted (pusher) propeller. In all wings energy is lost due to the lift-induced vortex at the wingtip. Wingtip-mounted pusher propellers can recover...

In the year 2050, global anthropogenic radiative forcing from aircraft emissions are projected to increase significantly. Recent studies have considered climate optimized flight trajectories to be a promising measure to mitigate non-CO2 emissions’ environmental impact, which is highly sensitive to locus and time of emissions. Estimating the...

This thesis gathers, develops and evaluates several characterizations of multivariate tail dependence. It is established that the stable tail dependence function (STDF) is a suitable copula-based dependence function that fully captures the multivariate extremal dependence structure in all dimensions d≥2 and can be used to visualize the tail...

Since the industrial revolution the use of fossil fuels has increased exponentially, this increase caused a higher concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is responsible for climate change. To prevent a large-scale change of the earth’s climate humanity needs to switch to renewable energy sources. A large drawback of current...
