River data on discharge and characteristics is essential for water management and water supply, as well as for flood prediction and flood control (Pan, Wang, and Xi 2016). In practice, many watersheds are ungauged due to high costs, inaccessibility and even due to political instability (Pan, Wang, and Xi 2016). For this reason, measuring...

Architecture has been using materials that are extremely durable, disregarding the lifespan and purpose of the structure. While this approach to materiality provides a high standard for structural stability and environmental control, it also causes a large volume of waste at the end of the life span of the building. While the material that’s...

After the failure of several large breakwaters in late 1970’s and early 1980’s where the role of rocking and breakage of armour became apparent, the importance of understanding this rocking phenomenon is given a great emphasis. Single layer randomly placed armour units are widely used in breakwater designs as they are more economical due to the...

Air forces demand aircraft availability for their operations. In order to increase this availability, there is a need for insight in the effect of environmental conditions on the usage profiles of components and systems. Existing frameworks and standards only provide for static environmental effects on component degradation. The research...

Nowadays, there are still some regions in developing countries lacking electrification. A solution to electrify thehouseholds in these areas with off-grid Solar Home Systems (SHS) has been proposed for some time. However,battery storage in SHS is always the limitation in both cost and lifetime point of view. Thus, a battery withstable behaviour,...

The air-conditioning of commercial buildings accounts for approximately 50% of the total energy consumed in India’s commercial sector. Reducing this load is a key step towards minimizing India's greenhouse gas emissions. One culprit is the routine use of fully glazed façades which are chosen for aesthetics but are neither energy efficient nor...

The Earth is subjected to 100,000 year cycles of glaciation and deglaciation. The deformations induced by glacial and oceanic loading and the continuous attempt at recovery of the isostatic equilibrium within the solid Earth, are referred to as Glacial Isostatic Adjustment (GIA). This process is ongoing still and yields a large contribution to...

Anthropogenic activities like chemical industries are releasing chlorinated species, such as perchlorate (ClO4-) or chlorite (ClO2-), into the environment. These substances are toxic and difficult to treat in the wastewater. However, nature offers a way to solve this problem. Perchlorate-respiring bacteria possess an enzyme, namely called...
