Recirculation and infiltration of leachate in landfills are performed to accelerate the process of stabilizing organic matter in waste. At landfill De Kragge (Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands), leachate recirculation and infiltration measures started in March 2018. This research aims to provide insight related to leachate flow throughout the...

Powerful predictive AI systems have demonstrated great potential in augmenting human decision-making. Recent empirical work has argued that the vision for optimal human-AI collaboration requires ‘appropriate reliance’ of humans on AI systems. However, accurately estimating the trustworthiness of AI advice at the instance level is quite...

There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

Over the years, aero engines have evolved into the efficient turbofans present on commercial airliners today. Although these engines are very reliable, they still experience degradations in performance and reductions in component health. The degradation affects the operation of the engine, which can be measured using the pressure, temperature,...

Mobile electronics or remote devices like sensors for the Internet of Things (IoT) require energy storage with increasing energy densities, approaching the limits of the widespread lithium batteries. At the same time, lithium batteries are subject to growing criticism about their environmental impact due to their raw materials and their mining...

During arrival waves at hub airports the surrounding airspaces can be congested, resulting in flight delays. To solve this congestion problem one of the current solutions is to sequence flights whilst they are still en-route by using an Extended Arrival Manager (E-AMAN). This paper aims at improving this E-AMAN concept by tackling two of its...

State-of-the-art tilt-rotor flight mechanics models appear to be inadequate in predicting the flight dynamics behavior across the entire flight envelope due to a lack of experimental data suggesting the need for more generic models. This paper presents a middle ground between model flexibility (genericity) and accuracy. For this purpose a...

With new rovers landing on Mars, like the Perseverance rover in 2020, the interest in Mars has grown recent years. The atmospheric conditions on Mars result in challenging conditions due to its low density atmosphere and extremely low temperatures. With a density on Mars that is 1% of that on Earth, creating sufficient lift for vehicles to fly...

This research aims to understand the local governance capacity of Amsterdam Oud-Noord and discover how this area, together with its stakeholders, can improve its climate resilience through transformative climate adaptation governance. This was done by first understanding the research area, its challenges and needed climate adaptation, and by...

<b>Introduction</b> Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of childhood morbidity, disability and mortality worldwide. In the treatment of TBI, neuromonitoring is essential to prevent secondary neurological damage. However, the use of neuromonitoring and specifically therapeutic targets is currently limited evidence-based.<br/><b...

Uncertainty in ice sheet modelling affects centennial and longer time-scale projections of the Greenland Ice Sheet's (GrIS) sea level contribution. One source of this uncertainty is the interaction between the ice sheet’s evolution and the Earth’s deformation in response to changes in the applied surface loading as the ice sheet waxes and wanes....

<b>Purpose</b> Manufacturer’s predictions of ablation zone dimensions are the current directives for treatment planning in thermal ablation, while they are mostly based on ex vivo experiments making its reliability questionable. The aim of this study is to determine the correspondence in dimensions, volume, shape and overlap of the manufactures’...

Reconstructed Discontinuous Galerkin (rDG) methods aim to provide a unified framework between Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) and finite volume (FV) methods. This unification leads to a new family of spatial discretization schemes from order three upwards. The first of these new schemes is the rDG(P1P2) method, which represents the solution on each...

Contrail formation is one the largest warming contributions of aviation’s climate impact. Measures to mitigate contrail climate impact include the optimisation of flight trajectories to avoid the formation of warming contrails or to find air space where extra cooling contrails are formed. The latter option is only possible during daytime, due to...

This report covers all major steps to establish an aviation emission inventory for 2019. This emission inventory is set up based on four consecutive steps. The first step is to gather all required data in the information model and this also includes some pre-processing of data to make it as complete as possible. The second step is to estimate...

Whilst the extraction of teeth (exodontia) remains one of the oldest and most performed surgeries on earth, very little is understood about the procedure itself. Especially in the area of the required movements, torques and forces to remove specific teeth and how these interact with existing tissue. This knowledge gap has been hypothesized to...

In the effort against climate change the company ZEF has as its target to make methanol (CH3OH) out of atmospheric CO2; a process which can be seen as power-to-fuel and/or power-to-x. In light of the developmental cycle within ZEF a new reactor with an increased size and enhanced mass manufacturability is required. The...

Interpretation of the thermal properties of soils is an important challenge in the field of geo-engineering, for example the development of geothermal energy solutions and for the design of electricity cable routes used for offshore wind farms. Of the thermal properties, the thermal conductivity is of most interest to find, as this determines...

The Dutch Ministry of Defence fulfils a crucial role in keeping the Dutch kingdom safe. From missions overseas to providing aid in the case of natural disasters, correct and efficient information-flow is critical for their operations. When a situation occurs, everything is dropped to make sure that they can handle it. The Royal Dutch Army, Navy,...

Indoor localisation is a growing field of interest in recent studies. While GPS (global positioning system) is a standard for outdoor localisation, no such solution exists for indoor applications. The literature provides several methods to obtain the location of indoor systems, often using optical sensors. A small number of recent studies use...
