This doctoral research investigates the understanding and implementation of public space in the reformed Chinese context, particularly from the perspectives of urban design and architecture, by referring to the complex process and result of transculturation (transculturación). It delineates how public space as a Greco-Roman originated concept...

The MTH process is recognized as one of the key ingredients of the methanol (MeOH) economy concept enabling the production of crucial hydrocarbon building blocks, such as light olefins and aromatics, starting from CO2 as the primary carbon source. Besides the driving force of reducing reliance on fossil fuels, the highly tunable nature of this...

This thesis constitutes a first step towards measuring the passenger capacity of station platforms. First, it defines platform capacity on the basis of the locations of queues at exit escalators from platforms, the presence of passengers in the platform-edge danger zone and the duration of stops. It then renders capacity measurable using real...

Delivery of biomolecules using pulsed electric fields or electrotransfer has applications such as biomedical engineering, bioprocess engineering and genomic engineering. When a cell is placed in an electric field, the induced transmembrane voltage catalyzes the formation of pores on the cell membrane. This enables the delivery of otherwise cell...

Due to an increased demand for transport, ships become larger, needing a larger navigable depth. For these reasons a waterway needs to be dredged and a Cutter Suction Dredger is a vessel suitable for this operation.<br/><br/>A Cutter Suction Dredger is a floating vessel which removes sand, clay or soft rock from sea or river beds. It has a...

Radionuclides are essential in nuclear medicine and therefore new and improved production methods continue to play an important role in ensuring sustainable availability. This thesis focuses on the production of two radionuclides (99mTc and 51Cr) using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). MOFs are novel porous materials and their potential to be...

The aim of this study is to innovate wave-based depth-inversion towards smarter and faster algorithms to be used with various remote sensing instruments for broad community use. Wave-based depth inversion describes a branch of coastal remote sensing, which uses video recordings of a wave-field to derive depths and thereby create digital maps of...

The transition to sustainable energy iswell underway and is introducing changes on both sides of the electricity balance scale – generation and demand. On the generation side, emissions-free renewable generation resources such as wind and solar are replacing the pollution-emitting thermal power plants. On the demand side, energy sectors...

A big technological leap in Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastics (CFRP's) has brought to the market materials that are able to operate under severe thermomechanical loading conditions and yet remain lightweight. This is of high interest for new developments in aerostructures, such as supersonic airliners or the hydrogen aircraft. A continuous need...

Nowadays, large wind turbines are installed and operated close to densely populated areas due to the growing need for renewable energy. Noise constraints are hampering this development. The most relevant wind turbine noise source is the so-called Turbulent Boundary Layer Trailing-Edge (TBL–TE) noise. Many passive TBL–TE noise reduction...

Miaskiwskyi, L.T. (author)
The subject of this thesis is twofold: The first part is the study of local-to-global principles for the continuous Lie algebra (co-)homology of certain infinite-dimensional Lie algebras of geometric origin, specifically, Gelfand-Fuks cohomology and continuous cohomology of gauge algebras. It includes both an exposition to classical results of...

High-precision motion systems are crucial for many applications, such as in semiconductor equipment, microscopy, robotics, and medical devices. Next to high operating speeds, high accuracy and precision are required, which makes the design of these systems a challenging task. Dynamics, feedback control, and their interaction all play an...

The urgent threat of global warming and the demand for sustainable fuels have made the electroreduction of CO2 a priority, due to its possibility in closed-loop cycle of carbon. The energy conversion and strategy can diminish the content of CO2 in the atmosphere, convert renewable electricity into chemical energy and store it in chemical bonds,...

Schwietert, T.K. (author)
Solid-state batteries have the promise to outperformconventional Li-ion batteries. Solid electrolytes are safer, as the solids used are generally not combustible, and especially if Li-metal anodes are enabled, higher energy densities can be obtained. However, solidstate batteries still have challenges to overcome. In this thesis the origins of...

For more than a decade now, automated transit data collection systems (like the smart card and Automatic Vehicle Location) have been implemented, providing access to a massive amount of passively collected data. Being relatively new, they have not yet been explored to their full potential. This thesis focuses on leveraging such data to make...

The current concerns regarding global warming and climate change in Europe and other parts of the world also influence developments in the automotive sector. Not only are alternative energy and power sources making their advent, but greenhouse gas emission reduction has also become a major factor in the development of vehicles with combustion...

Combining light and electron microscopy in an integrated system allows for the combination of two different sorts of information in an automated fashion. This type of imaging, called integrated correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM), is used for imaging of biological specimen and allows us to put the biomolecular context provided by...

Autonomous robots will profoundly impact our society, making our roads safer, reducing labor costs and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and improving our life quality. However, to make that happen, robots need to navigate among humans, which is extremely difficult. Firstly, humans do not explicitly communicate their intentions and use intuition...

Multi-modal imaging techniques have become essential for better understanding fundamental questions in cell biology such as disease progression. While individual microscopy methods have rapidly advanced in recent years, the information content of any one imaging technique is limited to the type of contrast that particular technique is sensitive...
