The so-called “hydrogen economy” became one of the scientific targets among the different renewable energies alternatives, as a result of the efforts to transition from fossil fuels to environmentally-friendly energy sources. In this context, various options to transport and store hydrogen are being explored. Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT)...

A common cardiac arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, which is becoming more widespread worldwide. Currently there is some understanding about the mechanisms behind atrial fibrillation, however more insight into the conduction of the atrial tissue is desired. Therefore, invasive mapping studies have been performed where an array of electrodes is...

This thesis has researched the automation of performance evaluation of vehicle routing heuristics. The trade-off between solution quality, which is composed of multiple variables, and runtime make performance evaluation challenging. Therefore, it is often done by human experts. The research question of this thesis is: “How can we determine a...

The response of a sound system in a room primarily varies with the room itself, the position of the loudspeakers and the listening position. The room boundaries cause reflections of the sound that can lead to undesired effects such as echoes, resonances or reverberation. Knowledge of the location of these large reflecting surfaces can help to...

Mining projects around the world face a significant challenge to reduce their footprint and be more environmentally friendly. Research has shown that mineral processing is of major influence, due to the use of heavy chemicals that are both expensive and polluting. Currently, electrowinning (the electrodeposition of metals) is only used in the...

Lung cancer, also known as lung carcinoma, is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Worldwide in 2012, lung cancer occurred in 1.8 million people and resulted in 1.6 million deaths. This makes it the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and the second most common in women after...

Shifting from coal and oil towards sustainable energy sources is currently an urgent and global challenge. Compared to coal and oil, natural gas is a cleaner fossil fuel and may serve as a transition fuel. To meet future demands for gas there is a desire to optimize the production from existing reservoirs with their production facilities. In...

MRI machines are devices that are used to non-invasively obtain images of the internal anatomy and physiological processes of the human body. It is safe to use as the patient is not exposed to any harmful radiation, and there are no known side effects. But such machines that are commercially available are very expensive. Due to this reason, it...

The quest for affordable renewable energy causes the need for bigger and more efficient wind turbines. To counter the problem of possible collisions between the growing turbine blades and the tower support structure, downwind turbines might be a solution. For this configuration, blade flexibility no longer forms a problem and besides that...

People with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) will suffer from a limited hand function. Therefore, a dynamic hand orthosis could be one of the solutions to improve their hand function and quality of life. However, at this moment, none of the obtainable hand orthoses fits their special needs. The goal of this research is to design a flat dynamic...

Taylor-Couette (TC) flow refers to the flow in the annulus between two coaxial, independently rotating cylinders. The TC system has been subject to multiple experiments spanning over decades due to the instability phenomena that occur in the flow. When the rotation rates of the cylinders are increased beyond a critical value, instabilities...

Data analysis for electrical impedance tomography (EIT) research requires manual selection of sequences with a normal breathing pattern. This procedure is lengthy and the lack of a standardised approach results in different practices among EIT studies, limiting the potential and comparability of the research.<br/>This article presents a new...

In this thesis, a luminaire is developed for the public space. The main purpose of this luminaire is to positively influence the state of mind of bystanders and improve the residential quality of the city centre. It does this by creating distinct atmospheres with adaptive light features, based on the use of public space. To determine all the...
