Csobo, E. (author)
This dissertation addresses the local-well posedness, singularity formation, and orbital stability of standing waves to inhomogeneous nonlinear dispersive equations. Inhomogeneous equations are equations with space-dependent coe <br/>cients, which account for the impurities of the propagating media or the presence of an outer potential. Despite...

Liver carcinoma is in the top five leading causes of cancer death worldwide. Patients often require radiologic interventions in which needles are inserted, for example when taking biopsies, accessing blood vessels or bile ducts, and ablating tumors. Accurate and precise needle placement in interventional radiology is important, but also...

This PhD thesis investigates V2V, V2I, and I2I cooperation of CMVSs for improving the safety and efficiency of waterborne transport. A predictive motion control framework and a generic negotiation framework are proposed to achieve consensus among controllers. Different applications provide insights into the impact of CMVSs on the performance of...

The downstream process development for biopharmaceuticals is faced with increasing challenges. A growing market of drug candidates and new molecule families, as well as a rising trend to personalized medicine lead to an increase in market diversity. At the same time more purification techniques and materials become available, resulting in an...

Developments in sequencing technology have drastically reduced the cost of DNA sequencing. The raw sequencing data being generated requires processing through computationally demanding suites of bioinformatics algorithms called genomics pipelines. The greatly decreased cost of sequencing has resulted in its widespread adoption, and the amount of...

Tromp, E. (author)
For many years the Netherlands has protected itself against high river discharges and storms by means of a network of dikes, dams and (other) hydraulic structures. Traditionally, water safety has therefore mainly been the domain of engineers. In recent decades, the regulations on water safety have been further institutionalised. Knowledge in the...

Jovanovic, Nenad (author)
The growing penetration of renewable energy sources in electricity systems requires adapting operation models to face the inherent variability and uncertainty of wind or solar generation. In addition, the volatility of fuel prices (such as natural gas) or the uncertainty of the hydraulic natural inflows requires to take into account all these...

Bottom-up approaches for the synthesis of nanostructured heterogeneous (electro-) catalysts, via the colloidal deposition route combined with nanostructured catalyst supports, have been investigated in this thesis. Colloidal gold nanoparticles have been selected as a case study in view of their promising catalytic properties for oxidation...

Spreading phenomena such as spreading of diseases, information and computer viruses are ubiquitous in nature and man-made systems, but the understanding of them is still insufficient. This dissertation focuses on the analysis of a basic mathematical model of spreading phenomena running on underlying network structures and aims to complete the...

In order to improve anti-cancer treatment, we need to better understand why some patients respond to a given anti-cancer treatment, while others do not. To this end, several large-scale drug response screens have been performed in recent years, in which hundreds of tumor cell lines have been characterized formany molecular features (e.g....

Materials are omnipresent. Recognizing materials helps us with inferring their physical and chemical properties, for instance if they are compressible, slippery, sweet and juicy. Yet in literature, much less attention has been paid to material perception than to object perception. This dissertation presents studies on a method to systematically...

Time-series synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) has evolved into a widely preferred geodetic technique for measuring topography and surface deformation of the earth. In the last decades, time-series InSAR methodologies were developed to extract information from persistent scatterers (PS) and distributed scatterers (DS). Methodologies...

Rotating ring-like structures are very commonly used in civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering. Typical examples of such structures are components in turbomachinery, compliant gears, rolling tyres and flexible train wheels. At the micro-scale, rotating ring models find their applications in the field of ring gyroscopes, in which high...

Gas-solid fluidized beds are widely used in various industries due to their favourable mixing, and mass and heat transfer characteristics. Fluid catalytic cracking, polymerization, drying, and granulation are a few examples of their applications. In recent years, there has been increased application of fluidized beds in biomass gasification and...

Nature is capable of constantly adapting some of its assembled structures in response to external and internal signals. For instance, microtubuli grow and shrink upon cell division and cellular transport. Furthermore, actin fibers play a major role in muscle contraction and cell signaling. To achieve these transient functions, such assembled...

The Marker Wadden project aims to improve the ecosystem of Lake Markermeer (The Netherlands) by constructing a wetland with sediment from the lake. Sediment is dredged from the bed, and the resulting slurries are pumped into the project area. During this process, segregation and oxidation of the sediment may occur. The native sediment...

Cementitious materials are heterogeneous on mutliple length scales, from nanometres to metres. Consequently, their macroscopic mechanical properties are affected by material structures at all length scales. In pursuit of fundamental understanding the relationship between their multiscale heterogeneous material structure and mechanical properties...

In this thesis, several phase retrieval methods are discussed. Since the focus will mainly be on theory rather than experiment, the structure has been determined by the similarities and differences of the mathematics of these methods. For example, a distinction is made between non-iterative and iterative methods, and between single-shot...

Humanity needs to increase use of renewable sources of materials and energy. Biomass can be used for both of these needs. Cellulose is the main component of biomass. Understanding the multi-level hierarchical structure of cellulose holds the key tomultiple applications of this material. One of the promising applications of lignocellulsic biomass...
