In future decades, coasts will be exposed to increasing risks because of climate change and sea level rise, which poses an increased threat of coastal inundation, erosion and ecosystem loss. The natural variability of coasts can make it difficult to identify these impacts. Most beaches worldwide show evidence of recent erosion. Sea level rise is...

A more inclusive perspective on heritage management regarding sustainable development becomes an important aspect in understanding and reflecting on heritage buildings or sites. The cultural significance they convey, such as attributes and values attached to them, are not only represented by physical assets, but are also reflected in people’s...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

In this thesis, thermodynamic and structural properties of different deep eutectic solvent (DESs), and mixtures of DESs with gases or water, were computed using the state-of-the-art molecular simulations and computational methods. Discussions were presented on the influence of the intermolecular interactions and liquid structure of DESs on...

Wind loading is an essential aspect in the design and assessment of long-span bridges, but it is often not well-known and cannot be measured directly. Most structural health monitoring systems can easily measure structural responses at discrete locations using accelerometers. This data can be combined with reduced-order modal models in Kalman...

We extend the Barles-Perthame procedure [4] (see also [22]) of semi-relaxed limits of viscosity solutions of Hamilton-Jacobi equations of the type f−λHf=h to the context of non-compact spaces. The convergence result allows for equations on a ‘converging sequence of spaces’ as well as Hamilton-equations written in terms of two equations in...

International trade and emission offshoring can reduce a country's domestic carbon dioxide emissions, helping it to reach emission reduction targets set under the prevailing territorial climate policy frameworks. We ask what is the net contribution of trade to national production-based emissions. Existing metrics (consumption-based emissions and...

Human mobility shapes our daily lives, our urban environment and even the trajectory of a global pandemic. While various aspects of human mobility and inter-personal contact duration have already been studied separately, little is known about how these two key aspects of our daily lives are fundamentally connected. Better understanding of...

Embryogenesis is a fascinating mystery. How a single fertilized egg, the zygote, reads out its genetic information and turns into a fully formed, multicellular organism still defies detailed understanding. <br/>An adult organism can consist of trillions of cells of different types, organized to form various complex tissues and organs. To obtain...

The Pulsed Electro Acoustic Method (PEA) is a widely used method for the measurement of space charges in High Voltage (HV) dielectrics. This thesis aims to contribute to the optimization of the PEA method by being able to make measurements from different test setups comparable and enhance the reliability of the results interpretation. This work...

Place-making initiatives have gained momentum in recent years to establish stronger urban communities. Through place-making, people attach meaning to spaces and they become places. While place-making initiatives have traditionally been designed and implemented from top-down, more and more scholars call for a participatory and bottom-up approach,...

Quantum memories will prove to be an invaluable tool for distributing entangled quantum states over distance. Many novel materials for this purpose are being investigated and key among them are rare earth ion doped crystals. These materials possess a great number of potential combinations of host crystal and ion species for further study, some...

The mysteries of the early Universe are largely enshrouded in dust, product of the violent process of star formation. Due to the vast distances of our Universe, infrared light emitted by the heated dust back in those early stages can still be observed today, which has been observed to contribute to about half of the total cosmic background...

The Cassini spacecraft, observing the Saturnian system for over 13 years, discovered aspects of the planetary system that were previously unseen. One such discovery is the eruption of geysers (plumes) from the Tiger Stripes on the surface of the icy moon Enceladus. An unexpected liquid water ocean exists underneath Enceladus’ icy crust (Postberg...

In 2050, it is expected that 70% of the world’s population will live in cities (Jin et al., 2014), leading to increasing congestion in and surrounding cities. This will raise new challenges, requiring more efficient and interactive cities. A novel paradigm contributing to these so-called smart cities is participatory sensing. Also known as...

Access to safe drinking water is an essential human right and a crucial element to human survival. The quality of drinking water, has strong and direct impact on human health. Unless free of fecal contamination, water is unsafe to drink. Yet, to date, 2 billion people remain without access to safe drinking water. Consequently, the burden of...

The accurate and reliable prediction of the aerodynamic noise sources of open rotors and ducted-fans in electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) and non-conventional aircraft configurations is a challenging task from a computational perspective. Indeed, such propulsive systems can often operate in highly distorted and non-homogeneous flows...

Because the seafloor is a complex ecosystem, a multidisciplinary approach must be adopted in order to produce comprehensive habitat maps. Such multidisciplinary projects have been lacking for the Dutch area of the North Sea. To address this lack, the Distribution, structure and functioning of low resilience seafloor communities and habitats of...

The characteristics of a metal supported solid oxide fuel cell on methanol is analysed in as the power generator in a balance of plant consisting out of a reformer, combuster, heaters, pumps, turbines and tubes. The system is reviewed on performance regarding efficiency, power density, fuel utilization and viability for marine applications.
