Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between the surface and deep layers to generate electricity. The temperatures in the ocean hardly vary between day and night or between the seasons, which ensures a very constant energy production with OTEC. In order for OTEC to compete with the current forms of energy...

The Utility Lagrangian and the Surplus Hamiltonian in economic engineering do not depend on consumption.
Two theories are proposed to include the effect of consumption in the Utility Lagrangian and the Surplus Hamiltonian. The second of these two theories resolves the dissipation obstacle in port-Hamiltonian systems as an additional result....

In 20 years, from 1996 to 2016, global cumulative container port throughput had an average annual growth rate of 6.3%. Furthermore, the average global transshipment incidence increased from 11% in 1980 to a stable 27% in 2017. This change in transshipment market dynamics has led to opportunities for potential port investments or disinvestments....

The crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) has been utilized in pavement industries to mainly reduce the environmental impacts of the wasted tires by turning unwanted scrap tires into new bituminous materials. However, the relatively high viscosity compared to the conventional asphalt is the major drawback of the CRMB. The higher mixing and...

Increasing ship emissions are of big concern because they contribute to the effects of climate change and have an impact on the local and regional environment. Due to these concerns, stricter regulations are enforced upon the shipping sector by the International Maritime Organisation and the European Union. However, since new regulations are...

The intensive care unit (ICU) is a special department of the hospital that admits critically ill patients who need intensive monitoring, supporting, and/or take-over of one or more of their vital functions. The patients are monitored and supported by medical equipment as well as a team of intensivists, nurses and other medical staff members 24/7...

In the 21st century, polar land ice melting became one of the driving factors of global sea level rise, which is discussed widely by the media and the public. Although the fact of the shrinking ice caps and accompanying changes in the sea level is established, the actual amount of polar ice melting still needs to be quantified in separate...

The microtubule cytoskeleton is an intracellular polymer network involved in cell shape, cell motility, and cell division. Microtubules are self-assembling, dynamic polymers composed of tubulin proteins that alternate between phases of growth and shrinkage, a behaviour known as “dynamic instability”. A key feature of microtubules is their...

Accurate information on Arctic sea ice thickness has been historically limited both spatially and temporally to spare submarine sonar measurements until the advent of satellite altimeters such as ICEsat (operating from 2002 to 2008) and CryoSat-2 (operating from 2011 to present day). This study aims to use the historical record of normalized...

Climate on Earth is changing rapidly. In order to take the right measures it is important to know with which magnitude and rate the warming of the climate continues in the future. However, climate models currently predict different scenarios. The differing in response of shallow cumulus clouds to a warming climate explains the largest part of...

Air pollution is a widely accepted problem in today’s world. Nine out of ten people does not breathe healthy air due to rapid urbanization and human activities that cause increased severe air pollution. Over the years people have had a tendency to comfort themselves with everything they need inside. However, they may not be aware that the amount...

Europe is a continent with diverse climatic conditions. The dominant climates are the Oceanic, the Mediterranean and the Continental ones. The western part of Europe has an oceanic climate, southern Europe has a Mediterranean climate and eastern Europe has a continental climate. Because of such heterogeneities, a vast range of extreme climatic...

Skid resistance is an important parameter for road safety and therefore it is essential to monitor the skid resistance of pavements. In the Netherlands, skid resistance is measured with either the RWS Skid Resistance Tester -measuring the longitudinal friction coefficient- or the Seitenkraft-Messverfahren (SKM) -measuring the sideway friction...

Patients diagnosed with drop foot syndrome experience difficulties creating enough clearance during walking, resulting in stumbling over very small obstacles. An Ankle Foot Orthosis is an orthopaedic aid which limits the plantar flexion of the foot, providing a safe walking gait for the patient. Currently, these AFOs are vacuum formed over a...

To increase the total wind farm power output, the wind farm layout needs to be optimized. The power output of a wind turbine depends on the incoming velocity, while the velocity is influenced by the wake of the upstream wind turbines. Wind Farm Layout Optimization (WFLO) problems makes use of the so called low fidelity wake models, which...

The frequency and severity of natural disasters is increasing worldwide, leading to a growing number of people struggling to survive. While climate related natural disasters affect large portions of the world, communities who are already struggling to survive due to conflict, insecurity or poverty are hit the most. In fragile states, slowly...
