The Beam Dump Facility (BDF) is a new fixed target facility proposed to be installed in the North Area of CERN. Currently in its design phase, the BDF is aimed at the Search for Hidden Particles (SHiP) experiment, which purpose is to investigate the origin of dark matter and other lightly interacting particles. The BDF target/dump sits at the...

In the framework of JAXA's MMX mission to explore the Martian moon of Phobos, an analysis of the stability of three-dimensional quasi-satellite orbits in the Mars-Phobos circular restricted three-body problem was conducted. For this analysis, notions of co-orbital motion, interpreted as the slow motion of the guiding center of the trajectory...

An increase in carbon emission which mostly caused by the transportation sector and electric power generation has been a hot topic nowadays in most countries in the world. To tackle this problem, the share of renewable energy use has been increased by up to 14% in the Netherlands. Moreover, the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road also...

Nigerian suffers from inadequate electricity supply of which her transmission capacity is a major factor. Having deregulated her power system recently , systems planning( generation and transmission) becomes a chicken and egg problem of which its coordination is a complex socio-technical issue. In an effort to approach this problem ,TEPES ( a...

Ammonia in aqueous environments leads to eutrophication and toxicity of the receiving water body (Metcalf & Eddy, 2003). In order to prevent environmental pollution, ammonia needs to be removed from residual water streams, before the water can be discharged to the aqueous environment (Song et al., 2012). Waste water treatment plants (WWTPs)...

The increasing interest in solar electric propulsion techniques, that enable significant propellant mass savings for a wide class of transfers, has brought about a revolution in the approach to trajectory design and optimization, as a result of the complexity and diversity of the problem. To date, solutions of different nature exist, but...

Hospitals need to be staffed around the clock to ensure satisfactory care for all patients. To this end, a set of shifts is defined which are assigned to nurses in a work schedule. The nurse rerostering problem (NRRP) occurs when due to unforeseen circumstances some shifts become unassigned: one or more nurses are no longer able to work some of...

A current trend in mining is towards lower grade deposits when easy to access mineral deposits are depleted in the world. Therefore, to make the current deposits accessible, a cost of mining need to be economic. Costs can be decreased in equipment and mine planning to maximize the availability and utilization of equipment for example by...

In this thesis, research is performed into parametric design of balanced cantilever bridges within the total road design. The main research question is: What can be achieved by using a parametric model in the preliminary design phase, with the possibility to optimize and compare concrete bridges on material usage, costs and environmental impact?...

When sunlight illuminates a body, a tiny pressure is exerted upon its surface due to the photons impacting on it. Such a principle forms the basis of solar sailing, in which the solar radiation pressure is used to accelerate highly reflective lightweight structures called solar sails. Similarly, a laser-enhanced solar sail is a solar sail in...

Electric Vehicles (EVs) provide a promising sustainable clean mode of transportation with much fewer emissions compared to the traditional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles. However, this can only be considered true if the energy sources used for charging EVs are also from clean energy form. Various Renewable Energy Sources (RES) are...

This master thesis work is inspired by the practical aspects of the Analytical Constant Modulus Algorithm (ACMA) proposed by Alle-Jan van der Veen and Arogyaswami Paulraj. The ACMA deals with the beamforming problem associated with constant modulus co-channel signal interference in wireless communication. Co-channel interference occur when...

The computation of complex turbulent flows design optimization processes is currently limited by the lack of accuracy of Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) in massively separated flows and the infeasible cost of multiple Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) evaluations. A novel method is presented, injecting data from LES or other high-fidelity...

One of the cutting-edge interests gaining relevance among design offices, notably in the sphere of architecture firms, is computational design. With its inception embedded in the 60s and later reformed through the CAD revolution that boomed in the 80s, the use of the computer as a design tool has evolved to such lengths that it became...

Optimization is the mathematical process through which the set of conditions is obtained that produces the maximum or minimum value of a specified function. To solve different types of optimization problems several algorithms has been developed. They can be globally distinguished as deterministic or stochastic algorithms. Further on...

This thesis addresses synchromodal planning at operational level from the perspective of a logistics service provider. The existing infrastructure and the transportation activities are studied and modeled as an optimization problem with simultaneous vehicle routing and container-to-mode assignment. A special characteristic of this problem is the...
