Door de steeds strengere milieuwetgeving wordt het voor ontwerpers van aandrijflijnen in voertuigen steeds belangijker cm een aandrijflijn te ontwerpen met het oog op een laag energieverbruik en een minimale hoeveelheid emissies. Hierdoor worden de toegepaste componenten en de opbouw van aandrijflijnen steeds complexer. Door gebruik te maken van...

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...

The Sandwindmill system could decarbonize the Dutch coastal protection whilst harmonizing with the building with nature approach. The system consists of a pipeline connecting an offshore borrow location to a nearshore area, where the mined sediment is discharged. The equipment is powered by wind turbines. As long as the wind blows sufficiently,...

Micro robotic airships offer significant advantages in terms of safety, mobility, and extended flight times. However, their highly restrictive weight constraints pose a major challenge regarding the available computational power to perform the required control tasks. Thus, spiking neural networks (SNNs) are a promising research direction. By...

With the number of diagnosed cases rising every year, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is in need of novel therapeutic approaches to counteract the social and motor impairments inflicted by it. In this research, one of such therapeutic approaches, movement therapy (in particular Dance Movement Therapy (DMT)), is combined with the concept of...

The European Union’s incentives to make a shift from a linear towards a circular economy has pushed researchers to come up with tools that will facilitate this transition. A material passport is a digital tool that stores data regarding general information, the composition of the material and its properties. The passport is deemed as active at...

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic lead to a virtual standstill of air passenger traffic in the spring of that same year. While some travel restrictions have since been lifted, passenger air travel is not expected to return to pre-coronavirus levels for several years. Then the question arises of how to park the large amounts of grounded aircraft...

In order to reach the climate goals agreed on in Paris, immense CO2-reductions is necessary: 55% reduction in 2030 and 95% in 2050. 20% of the total CO2-emissions in the Netherlands comes from heating homes in the built environment. Therefore, it is essential to transition to a sustainable heating system in the built environment. According to...

Introduction: Potentials measured at the epicardial surface contain information regarding the conductive properties of the atrial tissue. The current lack of morphological categorization during atrial fibrillation (AF) provokes the usage of unsupervised learning methods to evaluate time series electrograms across the atrial surface. Analysis of...

Uncertainty can be defined as imperfect or unknown information arising in a stochastic environment. Due to the very limited knowledge, it is difficult to propagate and quantify various uncertainties affecting the system to its next step. As a result, it has been a challenge to consider multiple uncertainties affecting the system in various...

Climate change is increasingly becoming more impactful on our society. Recent events such as the extreme rainfall in the summer of 2021 in Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands and hurricane Ida in Mississippi (USA), caused severe floodings and damages in these areas. Climate change, in turn, leads to an increase in sea level rise, making flood...

The large-scale integration of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) brings about challenges related to the stochastic characteristics in supply. In this light, a recent and promising approach which has received increasing attention is that of multi-energy systems (MES). A MES is defined as an energy system whereby different energy sectors...

By analysing spectra of meteors ablating in the atmosphere, one can infer the composition of their parent bodies (asteroids and comets). A challenge to the accurate composition inference comes from external factors: factors other than the parent body composition, which affect meteoroid-atmosphere interactions and hence influence meteor spectral...

The free energy principle is a recent theory that originates from the neuroscience. It provides a unified framework that combines action perception and learning in the human brain. This research aims to implement the perception aspect of the free energy principle into robotics. This is achieved via the dynamic expectation maximisation (DEM)...
