Innovation has been regarded by European Commission (EU) as the important factor for economic growth. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are known as the source of these innovations, thus the source of economic growth. SMEs role during economic crisis is crucial as they can create employment. But they are still have pressing problems in finding...

Much attention is directed towards how to rapidly decarbonise the energy system. Unlike the present energy system based on fossil fuels, an energy system based on renewable energy sources with hydrogen and electricity as energy carriers would be sustainable in terms of CO2 emissions. Whereas in certain sectors (e.g. transport) the opportunities...

Containerisation has dramatically changed international transportation; it has affected the speed and costs of the transportation of goods. The largest share of costs of container transportation is related to inland transportation. The performance of the container transportation chain as a whole determines its competitive position. Disruptive...

Several internal multiple prediction methods have been proposed in the past and are still actively being researched. Of those, the Jakubowicz method is currently the most attractive and applied one, as it only uses surface data in a convolution and correlation process, and is therefore computationally relatively cheap. This allows its commercial...

We employ a barotropic two-phase/two-fluid model to study the primary break-up of cavitating liquid jets emanating from a rectangular nozzle, which resembles a high aspect-ratio slot flow. All components (i.e., gas, liquid, and vapor) are represented by a homogeneous mixture approach. The cavitating fluid model is based on a thermodynamic...

Due to limited number of donor hearts and stringent eligibility criteria for heart transplant the Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) has emerged as a relevant treatment option for heart failure. Occlusion in the form of a thrombus (blood clot) is a feared complication associated with the LVAD. The ability of ultrasound to result in effects...

Denmark aims for a 50% wind integration in 2020. In the current scenario, where wind represents around 34% of domestic consumption, mothballing of conventional power plants and heavy dependency in interconnection lines is already the trend. One of the strategies from the Transmission System Operator is to integrate a big volume of flexible loads...

The classical approach for road network generalization consists of producing multiple maps, for a different scale or purpose, from a single detailed data source and quite often roads are represented by line objects. Our target is the generalization of a road network for the whole scale range from large scale, where roads are represented as area...

For modern transonic transport aeroplanes, it is important to produce low drag at high cruise speeds. The root effect, caused by effects of symmetry on swept wings, decreases the performance of these aeroplanes. During aeroplane design, root modifications are applied to counteract this decrease in performance. Most conceptual aeroplane design...

General Aviation aircraft mostly fly with Visual Flight Rules (VFR). These are rules in aviation that permit the pilot to fly on sight if the weather conditions offer enough visibility for the pilot to perform the following tasks visually: collision avoidance with terrain or other airborne object, navigation and attitude determination. VFR...

The growing worldwide demand for clean, sustainable electricity generation and improved energy efficiency offers a valuable opportunity for the large scale implementation of OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) and SWAC (Sea Water Air Conditioning). One of the remaining technological challenges for large scale land-based OTEC and SWAC is the...

The growth in the aviation industry means that with existing constraints, operational efficiency has to be improved in order to be sustainable. The bottlenecks at airports are usually the runways and consequently, the routing and scheduling decisions from the ATC pertaining to the route and order of the incoming and outgoing flights are of...

In recent years, the research on Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs) have been paving the way for the very large-scale (10-20 MW) floating offshore applications. For a cost effective utilization, VAWTs need to deliver superior aerodynamic and structural performance. Nowadays, the complex ow phenomenon of VAWTs have been better understood and the...

Swarming is a promising solution for extending the flight time and payload carrying capabilities of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs), where recent years have brought many advancements. These allow MAVs to operate ever more autonomously by tackling problems such as obstacle avoidance and autonomous navigation. A major challenge that still remains,...

Primary factor for the site selection during the planning process of the large modern wind farms is the wind climate, which is usually favorable at remote and offshore locations where the public grid is not particularly strong. Among the consequences of this solution is the necessity to connect wind farms to weak points of the grid and the...

This project investigates the effect of addition of h-BN (hexagonal boron nitride) nano-particles, of size about 70 nm, to epoxy resin, cast in the form of thin circular plaques, varying in thickness from 0.46 mm minimally till 0.56 mm maximally. Different filler concentrations by volume% have been chosen, with the lowest as 0.2 volume% till the...

Extraction of hydrocarbons from the sub-surface is becoming harder with the reservoirs getting smaller and the formations increasingly tighter. Considering the current circumstances, production enhancement otherwise known as “stimulation” techniques, play a vital role in ensuring economic returns from a hydrocarbon reservoir. The use of water...
