Recent years the Netherlands have been shocked by a series of earthquakes. Normally an earthquake would be considered as a natural hazard, however extracting gas induces these earthquakes. Whenever a hazard is induced, it is perceived as man-made and therefore controllable. This leads to differences in risk acceptance in relation to natural...

Joint kinetics measured during level walking demonstrates that the main source of energy occurs around the ankle joint, i.e. a large power burst during push off. This power burst can be divided into two mechanisms; pre-emptive push off and a push off to accelerate the leg into swing. This division is marked by the contralateral initial contact,...

Traditional centralized power plants have limited ability to adapt to the varying power demands caused due to the increasing deployment of renewable energy sources. For power grids, willing to increase the use of renewable energy and thereby decrease the energy bills, demand side energy management could act as an effective solution. Demand side...

The Atomic Force Microscope is a type of high-resolution Scanning Probe Microscope where the image resolution has been demonstrated to be 3 orders of magnitude better than the optical diffraction limit. Directly observing individual protein molecules in action at high spatio-temporal resolutions has long been a holy grail for biological science....

Greenhouse gas concentrations are ever increasing in the Earth's atmosphere, causing the global temperature to have reached over a 1.0 degree Celsius increase relative to pre-industrial levels. A further increase in this temperature can have disastrous effects on our society, thus the increase in greenhouse gases must be attenuated....

The conducted study investigates the potential of a newly released multi-phase solver to simulate atomization in liquid rocket injectors. The "VOF-to-DPM" solver was used to simulate primary and secondary atomization in an air-blast atomizer with a coaxial injector-like geometry. The solver uses a hybrid Eulerian/Eulerian-Lagrangian formulation...

The subject of this thesis is the development and evaluation of a modular well intervention business concept. The concept aims to bridge the gap between surface and subsea well intervention markets, currently served by different vessel types, using a platform vessel and equipment modules. The regional scope is South-East Asia, due to its low...

This thesis project aims to enable Bluerise to create a 3 [MW] plant for their OTEC system. The current model and lab setup used to create insight into the systems working mechanisms are based on a Kalina cycle configuration. This method uses a working fluid mixture of water and ammonia. After evaporation, the liquid and vapor are separated and...

Multi-disciplinary design optimization (MDO) is a field that has gained traction in recent years. It can be distinguished as a methodology that promotes a simultaneous change in design features associated to multiple disciplines in order to achieve the best possible design of a coupled multi-disciplinary problem. A typical application in...

Coral reefs are degrading across the entire Great Barrier Reef. Rehabilitation of the Great Barrier Reef is crucial for Australia, both socially and economically because it provides $6 billion in revenue and 63,000 jobs. The Queensland state government issued a challenge within the "Small Business Innovation Research" program to quickly restore...

In industry, fired heaters are used to heat process fluids and to generate steam. The efficiency of these devices is increased with air preheating. Gnerally, the flow through the air preheaters is driven by a centrifugal fan, via forced draft. Through a widening transition duct (large angle diffuser), air flows from the fan towards the air...

In many engineering fields it is beneficial to obtain information about the force acting on a dynamical system. As measurement of this force is often difficult or impossible a technique that identifies this force in an alternative manner is desired. A wide variety of methods is available in literature. Obtaining this force in the frequency...

In the Netherlands about 36.000 total hip prostheses are implanted every year. Survival of these prostheses at 10 year follow-up is 90% in patients older than 70 years at the index operation. In younger patients these results decrease to about 80–85% at 10 years follow-up. The main cause of failure in total hip replacement is aseptic (mechanical...

The flow and sediment transport in the Yangtze Estuary are intrinsically complex because various processes and mechanisms are involved on a large range of temporal and spatial scales. In this thesis the interaction of river discharge and tidal wave with the corresponding sediment transport in the Yangtze Estuary is investigated. The objective is...

Coral reefs are degrading at an alarming rate, affecting not only the precarious coral ecosystem but also human habitat. The combination of coral degradation, sea level rise and its exacerbated effect in the tropics, and the possible storm intensification increases the flood vulnerability of low-lying tropical islands. To protect reef fronted...

AE faculty at TU Delft is currently developing a PocketQube satellite under the name of Delfi-PQ. Following the previous study, performed on a high level systems engineering on Delfi-PQ propulsion sub-system, there is a need to verify the propulsion sub-system's design, its final operational envelope values, and propulsion sub-system's...

This work focuses on creating a recipe for parametrizing flow around assemblies of non-spherical particles. A multi-relaxation time lattice Boltzmann method (MRT-LBM) is used to simulate the flow. The research focuses on 3 different developments. First, different boundary conditions available in the literature for LBM are tested to identify the...
