The Internet, a global network of communicating computers, has profoundly changed our lives, both in the way we work and relax. Quantum computers are a fundamentally new type of computer which brings certain computational tasks within reach, for example chemistry simulations for a reduction in global energy consumption. The Quantum Internet, the...

Offshore wind is expected to be one of the important contributors to the energy transition towards a more renewable and sustainable energy future. This can be clearly seen from the amount of investments over the past years as well as from the substantial upcoming offshore wind projects in the years to come. Many technological implementation...

Superconducting integrated circuits (SICs) represent a natural step forward for devices operating at frequencies from microwave up to sub-millimeter wavelengths. They offer massive miniaturization via compact design based on low-loss superconducting transmission lines. At sub-millimeter wavelengths, the development of SICs is driven by...

At first glance nanopores may appear simple, almost intuitive, to understand given that they are, quite literally, ‘just’ very small pores in a membrane. In fact, one may even wonder why at all we need trained scientists to study such seemingly simple entities. The short answer is that nanopores, as the word suggests, are nanoscale entities and,...

Recent advances in Multi-Function Radar (MFR) systems led to an increase in their degrees of freedom. As a result, modern MFR systems are capable of adjusting many parameters during runtime. An automatic adaptation of the radar system to changing situations, like weather conditions, interference, or target maneuvers, is often mentioned in the...

Lochbihler, K.U. (author)
As I am writing this, parts of Central Europe are plagued by a series of intense rainfall events that, in less than two days, turn rivers into powerful streams, cause flooding, damage infrastructure and property, and harm people. The number of such extreme events, which are associated with high economic losses and casualties, has been increasing...

The research in this thesis is a viability study of a waterborne platooning concept called the Vessel Train (VT). This manuscript describes the VT characteristics. It explains how the VT’s advantages are reaped, as well as the VT’s challenges that need to be considered and dealt with. To assess the potential of the platooning concept an inland...

Dit proefschrift gaat over de vraag in hoeverre in Nederland de lokale welvaartsontwikkeling wordt bepaald door de gemeentelijke investeringsinspanning. Op project niveau is meestal wel het een en ander bekend over de maatschappelijke effecten, maar over de impact van de totale investeringsinspanning ontbreekt zowel fundamentele als toepasbare...

Rangel Cardenas, A.L. (author)
In this thesis several aspects of PEM fuel cells are discussed. From an atomic scale, e.g. crystal and electronic structure of a non-noble metal material, e.g. (H)zLiMn2O4 (protonated spinel lithium manganese oxide) for electrocatalysis and its dynamics, to meso-macro scale effects such as those concerning transport resistances at the membrane...

Lashley, Christopher H. (author)
Coastal communities across the globe are often protected by structures, such as seawalls, levees or dikes, which allow only a safe volume of water to pass over or “overtop” them due to wave action during storms. The area seaward of these structures is often characterised by shallow, gently sloping beds referred to as foreshores.<br/>As storm...

Jamalinia, E. (author)
Large areas of the Netherlands are below the sea level, and a network of primary and secondary (regional) dikes protect these areas from inundation. Regular assessments and monitoring are implemented with the intention of ensuring the safety of the protected areas. However these assessments usually ignore that these dikes are subject to various...

There is increasing attention for the effects of anthropogenic underwater radiated noise (URN) on marine fauna. This is expected to lead to regulations with respect to the maximum permitted sound emissions of ships. It is known that cavitating tip vortices, generated by ship propellers, are some of the key contributors to URN. Consequently,...

Excessive fluoride (F¯) in drinking water due to natural and anthropogenic activities is a serious health hazard affecting humans worldwide. Groundwater is the major and preferred source of drinking water, also in developing countries. The removal of the excess F<sup>-</sup> from groundwater prior to drinking is important in terms of protection...

The freight transportation sector is one of the major contributors to air pollution. An important way to reduce emissions consists of collective route planning. Although unloaded trips and inefficient routes could not always be prevented by individual carriers, more efficient operations could often be obtained if multiple carriers collaborate by...

Tales of a Fountain of Youth and the invention of medicine illustrate our age-long obsession with two themes: life and death. What it takes to stay alive, and not to be dead, is a basic question in science that is easy to state, and yet difficult to address at a profound level. One striking feature of many living organisms is the ability of...

This thesis describes the development, validation and implementation of piezoelectric flow sensors. These sensors are meant to measure flow phenomena such as transition and separation in the boundary layer of an aircraft wing. Such information can be used<br/>as input variables to a control loop to push laminar-to-turbulent transition towards...
