Collaboration between the Global South and Global North is inevitable. It can work. It can be emphatic, effective, and more equal. However, there is a deeply embedded history of colonialism involving power asymmetries that give rise to the dismissal of value systems, which pervert this type of collaboration from being truly realised. Hence,...

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...

In order to decarbonize the electricity grid, renewable energy sources must be utilised in con- junction with energy storage to provide ancillary services, which maintain electricity supply quality, reliability and restorability, whilst remaining aordable. Due to a lack of knowledge about the potential of stacking UK ancillary services and...

Computational fluid dynamics is nowadays one of the pillars of modern aircraft design, just as impor­tant as experimental wind tunnel testing. Very ambitious goals in regards to performance, efficiency and sustainability are being asked of the aviation industry, the kind that warrant a virtual exploration of the edges of the flight envelope....

As a part of a <i>Future Launcher Preparatory Programme</i> contract issued by the European Space Agency, the aerospace startup company Dawn Aerospace is developing an integral, additive manufactured (AM), liquid rocket engine. This 2.5 kN class engine is propelled by the storable propellants 90% hydrogen peroxide and kerosene and used in the...

Launch vehicle structures are commonly composed of cylindrical and conical shells, which are inherently sensitive to buckling. The axial compression experienced during launch can consequently be a sizing load case, so it is important to understand the axial buckling behavior of these shells. Experimental testing is an essential part of studying...

The aviation industry has set ambitious emission reduction targets for 2050. Following the success of electrification in the automotive industry, the potential of hybrid electric propulsion (HEP) has been the subject of many scientific projects. The energy and power of the electric systems that support the aircraft propulsion system are...

Gas turbines for power generation use lean premixed flames to adhere to the strict pollutant emissions regulations. Unfortunately, this often leads to thermoacoustic instabilities. These instabilities can lead to failure of system components, flame blow-off or flashback and a reduction in efficiency. Especially the high frequency transverse...

The IsoTruss is an interesting continuous fibre reinforced polymer composite design which is closely related to open lattice composite structures, although it is currently aimed mostly at civil applications. While it currently lacks applicability to the aerospace sector, its production process is easier to automate (or change the shape input...

The applicability of conflict rate models to controlled, structured, terminal airspace is investigated. A collision rate model is adapted to conflicts between flows of aircraft, and its validity is empirically confirmed. Conflicts are divided into between-flow conflicts and within-flow conflicts. Applicability to a terminal airspace without...

During berthing operations of ships, the horizontal thrusters cause a hydraulic load on the quay wall and bed. This could eventually lead to scour holes in the bed, which may affect the structural integrity of the quay wall. This thesis is about a numerical simulation of a bowthruster jet which is deflected by a quay wall and the focus of this...

Abdominal gas insufflation creates the necessary space for manipulation of the surgical instruments in laparoscopic surgery. However, it is known to disrupt the normal respiratory mechanics. A novel surgical insufflator, capable of performing individualized pressure adjustments, has been recently developed at Erasmus MC - Sophia Children’s...

We propose a novel, dynamic analysis-based detection solution for formjackers. The operating principle of these formjackers, or card skimmers on the web, is typically simple, yet effective: when making a payment on webshop that has been infected with a formjacker, the submitted payment information is not just transmitted to the webshop, but also...

With the influx of the industrial revolution of the past centuries, the global energy demand has grown proportional to the global economical growth. Consequently, an enormous rise in greenhouse gas emissions has been observed, where the major contribution to global warming comes from the rising concentration of CO2. Therefore, the concept of...

Modern retail stores are increasingly implementing automated systems with the aim of assisting both the customer and employee. Much research is conducted on robotic applications within such environments; one of these applications concerns deploying an autonomous mobile manipulator to assist humans in retail stores. Such a robot requires the...

Suppose we have a target radiance distribution, a light source, and a plane for receiving light. How do we design a reflector that can give a similar result as the target radiance distribution? The inverse reflector problem is of high interest for light designers and related industries, such as lamp manufacture, headlight and street light design...

The platooning of trucks provides significant benefits in the existing transportation systems regarding social, economic and environmental aspects. Due to the platoon's high dependence on sensors, it is critically important to have fault-tolerant countermeasures that deal efficiently with failures by achieving minimal risk condition. This thesis...

In 2015 a new child act was implemented in the Netherlands. This meant that municipalities became responsible for the organisation of all youth care. First evaluations of the youth act show that a lack of collaboration and coherence in the youth care has resulted in complaints from youth and parents concerning long waiting times, complexity in...

For the shared mobility service providers, it is essential to have an economic operation and therefore, it is necessary to maximise their fleet utilisation. Of influence on the latter is the availability of the spare parts. The topics for which spare part forecasting research is already performed are different in several ways compared to the...
