Since ramjet propulsion eliminates the need for oxidizers, it provides an alternative to classic rocket engines for missiles and projectiles. However, to capture free-stream air, ramjet engines require large supersonic air intakes, which can be an operational nuisance. A possible alternative is to make the supersonic intakes flush with the...

Organ-on-chip (OoC) devices are increasingly used for biomedical research and to speed up the process of bringing a medicinal drug from the lab to the market. The technology also addresses ethical issues linked to animal testing as it offers a reduction in animal experiments through its possibility to mimic the environment in the human body....

In dynamic scheduling, some of the information about the scheduling problem is learnt during the execution of the schedule. Because of this, creating a low cost schedule that does not have to be changed is impossible in most cases. When changes are made during the execution, focussing solely on the performance of the schedule may result in very...

Simulation models are increasingly used to substantiate long-term planning policy decisions. The communication of model results from modellers to policy-makers has not received much attention by scholars. While, without correct interpretation and correct use of model results the quality of the model itself is irrelevant for the impact of the...

In the Observational Method Ab Initio approach a flexible design and construction plan is established to allow anticipation to observational feedback during the construction phase. This way, the structural design can be optimized to the in-situ conditions which is beneficial from both safety and economic point of view. In the application of...

Dutch homes use 70% of their total energy consumption for domestic hot water purposes and space heating. Currently, this energy is yielded through the use of natural gas. In order to meet Dutch Climate Agreement goals, which were agreed upon December 2018, Low Temperature District Heating (LTDH) is expected as being the most promising...

Li-ion batteries have major disadvantages. One of which is the growth of dendrites (in case Li metal based batteries), a major safety issue. In addition to that, Li-ion batteries also use elements such as Co, and Li, which are regionally scarce. Mg-ion batteries are one of the alternatives for Li-ion batteries. However, the electrolyte and...

This research is based on a new law relating quality assurance in construction that was proposed in 2016. The main aim of the legislative proposal is to improve the quality of construction by privatising the way of assessing quality on the basis of the Building Decree. The problem is that the contractor gets more responsibility in this process...

Microstructural evolutions during heat treatment of steel have been generally studied employing post-processed (ex-situ) characterisation methods. However, the data obtained cannot describe the kinetics of the transformation processes (in-situ) itself. With several microstructural processes happening simultaneously during an isothermal treatment...

This thesis analyzes the occurence of the quantum Zeno effect in a qubit in different situations. A system with a particle with spin 1/2, which represents a qubit, and detector is considered. The detector is modeled by a coordinate q, which has a Gaussian distribution with dispersion σ. There is the free evolution of the qubit and the...
