Kittelmann, J. (author)
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...

Konijnenberg, A.P. (author)
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...

The appearance of a painting cannot solely be described by the depiction that it presents to the viewer. When viewing the artifact in real life, we find that the painted surface is in effect a three-dimensional landscape of paint. Paintings, “moveable, largely two-dimensional images created for the primary purpose of providing a visual...

In recent years, technology development has accelerated the future roll-out of vehicle automation. An automated vehicle (AV), also known as a driverless car and a self-driving car is an advanced type of vehicle that can drive itself on existing roads. A possible area of application for AVs is public transport. The concept of automated taxis (ATs...

In this thesis, we study scaling and detailed properties of a class of conservative interacting particle systems. In particular, in the first part we derive the hydrodynamic equation for the symmetric exclusion process in presence of dynamic random environment. The second part of the thesis focuses on a detailed property of conservative particle...

Flow-induced acoustics are a well-known phenomenon, occurring in a broad variety of applications, as well as in nature. In many applications, the produced acoustics are purposeful, e.g. for communication and in musical instruments. In other circumstances, however, the sound and vibrations are a nuisance, and even harmful to human beings and the...

Foam increases sweep efficiency during gas injection in enhanced oil recovery (EOR)<br/>processes by reducing gas mobility. In fact, foam is the only EOR technology that is<br/>able to fight against both gravity segregation and geological heterogeneity. Surfactant Alternating Gas, or SAG, is the preferred method to place foam into the reservoir...

Thi Viet Phuong, N. (author)
Structures and buildings built on soft soil require deep foundations often consisting of piles. Through the piles, loads are transferred to deeper soil layers which are capable to mobilise enough bearing capacity for the superstructure. During installation of a displacement pile, the soil around the pile gets distorted which leads to a change of...

Science teachers have the experience that students in secondary and higher education face difficulties with applying mathematics into science class, leaving less time for their core business of teaching science. This may be frustrating and time-consuming, overshadowing the science content that needs to be taught. In addition, in a large number...

Precipitation drives the dynamics of flows and storages in water systems, making its monitoring essential for water management. Conventionally, precipitation is monitored using in-situ and remote sensors. In-situ sensors are arranged in networks, which are usually sparse, providing continuous observations for long periods at fixed points in...

Current Li-ion batteries dominate the market but face great challenges with respect to safety, cost and the higher energy and power densit requirements of electrical vehicles and stationary energy storage. Relevant for mobile electrical transport, Li-O2 batteries in theory offer the highest specific energy among all the lithium electrochemical...

Alkali-activated materials (AAMs) show promising potentials for use as building materials. Before the utilization, AAMs must satisfy the properties required from the construction sector, such as good durability and long-term service life. These properties mainly depend on the chemical and physical properties of the microstructure of AAMs. In the...

Vortex generators have become a ubiquitous sight on the modern wind turbine blade. These small, passive devices can increase the energy extraction potential of a rotor, but their subtle footprint disguises the technical difficulties associated with designing and integrating them onto wind turbine blades. The complexity of rotor inflow and the...

Over the years, technological improvement has led to the ability to acquire, create and store vast amounts of geometrical and appearance data to use in graphical applications. Nevertheless, efficiently creating images when using such large amounts of data remains an ongoing topic of research, given the computational resources required. This...

Due to increasing urbanisation rates worldwide combined with growing transportation demand, liveability of the urban environment is under pressure (UN, 2018). In response, many governments worldwide have set goals for increasing the share of trips made using sustainable modes of transport, such as walking and cycling. The use of active modes (i...

This thesis contributes to a detailed understanding of the urbanisation of Tehran, and offers a new perspective on its complexities and specificities. This perspective builds on the work of urban scholars who have critically questioned the Eurocentric understanding of cities and have moved beyond an artificial hierarchy of cities that pushes for...

This thesis is structured in six distinct chapters. In Chapter 1 a general introduction is given to address the main challenge in thin-film silicon solar cells and to motivate the need for light trapping. This chapter also describes the main focus of this thesis and the urge to understand the light behaviour inside a periodic waveguide thin film...
