Newly developed “pure-boron” photodiodes, with high sensitivity and stability in the whole ultraviolet range (UV), are described. The main purpose of this work is to create and characterize a large-area UV photodiode, representing a structure of a pixel in a backside illuminated CMOS image sensor, featuring maximum fill factor and hence...

Granular filters are used for protection against scour and erosion of base material. For a proper functioning it is necessary that at the interfaces between the filter structure, the subsoil and the water flowing above the filter structure no material will be transported. Different types of granular filters can be distinguished, this paper...

The aim of this thesis is to design a computational method that can be used in modern stealth technology. In particular, the computational method should be capable to simulate scattering of ultra-wideband radar signals for military aircraft constructed with ferromagnetic radar absorbent materials. A full-wave boundary element method has been...

Barrier coasts display a chain of islands, separated by tidal inlets that connect a back-barrier basin to a sea or ocean. Observations show that barrier island length generally decreases for increasing tidal range and increasing basin area. However, this has neither been reproduced in model studies nor explained from the underlying physics. This...

The mechanism behind the collapse of turbulence in the evening as a precursor to the onset of the very stable boundary layer is investigated. To this end a cooled, pressure-driven flow is investigated by means of a local similarity model. Simulations reveal a temporary collapse of turbulence whenever the surface heat extraction, expressed in its...

This study explores the mechanisms that determine detrainment in deep cumulus convection. A set of 90 high-resolution Large Eddy Simulations is used to systematically explore the sensitivity of continental deep convection to the relative humidity and stability of the free troposphere. It appears that variations in the mass-flux profiles are...

A review will be presented of the theory behind stable and unstable coastal inlet cross-sectional behaviour. The theoretical findings behind stable coastal inlet cross-sectional behaviour will be reviewed, analysed and confronted with empirical findings, leading to some unresolved questions. Second, seasonal variations will be shown to induce...

Thermal interaction of fluids and solids, or conjugate heat transfer (CHT), is encountered in many engineering applications. Since time-accurate computations of such coupled problems can be computationally expensive, we consider loosely-coupled and strongly- coupled solution algorithms in which higher order multi-stage Runge-Kutta schemes are...

Zwanenburg, C. (author)
Stability assessment of existing dikes build on soft soil generates questions on the available stability calculation techniques and material models. Especially peat behaviour is not easily captured by standard design methods. This has led to disapproval, based on calculations, of dikes that have been in operation for several hundreds of years....

We solve the three-dimensional acoustic wave equation, discretized on tetrahedral meshes. Two methods are considered: mass-lumped continuous finite elements and the symmetric interior-penalty discontinuous Galerkin method (SIP-DG). Combining the spatial discretization with the leap-frog time-stepping scheme, which is second-order accurate and...

Crowdsourcing successfully strives to become a widely used means of collecting large-scale scientific corpora. Many research fields, including Information Retrieval, rely on this novel way of data acquisition. However, it seems to be undermined by a significant share of workers that are primarily interested in producing quick generic answers...

In (Xu and Shu in J. Sci. Comput. 40:375–390, 2009), a local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) method for the surface diffusion of graphs was developed and a rigorous proof for its energy stability was given. Numerical simulation results showed the optimal order of accuracy. In this subsequent paper, we concentrate on analyzing a priori error...

Nowadays, many modern countries are relying heavily on non-renewable resources. One common example of non-renewable resources is fossil fuel. Non-renewable resources are ?nite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, renewable energy resources, like wind energy, are...

The sandwich composites fuselages appear to be a promising choice for the future aircrafts because of their structural efficiency and functional integration advantages. However, the design of sandwich composites is more complex than other structures because of many involved variables. In this paper, the fuselage is designed as a sandwich...

At river bifurcations, water and sediment are divided over two branches. The dynamics of the bifurcation determine the long-term evolution (centuries) of the downstream branches, potentially leading to avulsion, but the dynamics are poorly understood. The long-term evolution can only be studied by one-dimensional models because of computational...

The stability of natural circulation boiling water reactors is investigated with a strong emphasis on experiments. Two different facilities are used for such a task: the GENESIS facility (to which a void reactivity feedback system is artificially added) and the CIRCUS facility. In addition, numerical codes are also used in the investigation.

In the thesis two different models of solidification of aluminum alloys are presented and analyzed. The first 1--D solidification model is derived from the conservation of solute, heat and mass. With numerical experiments it is shown that simulations with the Finite Difference discretization must adhere a relation similar to the Courant...

For almost a century and a half, mathematicians have been racking their brains about the bike. How can a rolling bicycle be so stable of its own accord? Delft researchers now say they have completed the model to end all models. Bicycle manufacturer Batavus intends to use it to make better bikes for the elderly and disabled.
