The aim of this project was the development of the scientific basis for methodologies that enable the production of renewable sustainable cement (i.e. BioCement) based on ashes derived from the conversion of biomass residues. Within this project, biomass ash and derived products were developed at the laboratory scale, and their functionality was...

Dutch citizens on welfare have to volunteer at Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in return for their benefits. Through applying the ‘worlds of justification’ of Boltanski and Thévenot, this article aims to provide a better theoretical and empirical understanding of social justice of policies that obligate welfare clients to participate in CSOs....

Artificial illumination has had profound and far-reaching impacts on the development, use, and perceptions of urban nights, and has brought with it many benefits. However, in recent years its adverse costs and effects – commonly referred to as light pollution – have emerged as a topic of concern. Nighttime lighting uses enormous amounts of...

The realization of interfaces between different transition metal oxides has heralded a new era of materials and physics research. Notably, it enabled a uniquely diverse set of coexisting physical properties to be combined with an ever-increasing degree of experimental control. The primary focus of this thesis is the celebrated interface between...

Although being a crucial step in structural design of laminated composites, prediction of their long-term mechanical performance remains a challenging task for which no comprehensive and reliable solution is currently available. Nevertheless, structures such as wind turbine blades, of which laminated composites constitute the main load bearing...

Abstract: The aerodynamic drag of a human-scale wind tunnel model is obtained from large-scale particle tracking velocimetry measurements invoking the conservation of momentum in a control volume surrounding the model. Lagrangian particle tracking is employed to obtain the velocity and static pressure statistics in a thin volume in the wake...

Wheels are critical components of trains, and their conditions should be therefore monitored.Wheel defects change the wheel-rail contact and cause high impact forces thatare damaging for tracks and trains. Wheel defects can also cause unexpected failuresthat reduce the availability and reliability of the railway system. Several monitoring...

Kenya Water Services Regulatory Board (WASREB) Impact Report indicates a stagnation in water coverage at 55 percent, for the last three years, contrary to the 2015 target of 80 percent. One main reason for the stagnation is weak cross-county cooperation between hydrologically interdependent governments. WASREB has little guidance on what...

Growing importance of hydrogels in various areas of human life has led to increasing need in controlling their properties, which is generally achieved by adjusting hydrogels shape and microstructure. Even though standard microfabrication and microstructuring techniques can be currently applied in hydrogel research, the variety of properties of...

The policies of Third National Energy Efficiency Action Plan for the Netherlands, regarding the reduction of household energy consumption (HEC), were made based on the unwritten presumption that the stimuli of HEC are similar in each and every location of the Netherlands, and that it therefore is possible to formulate an identical set of...

Saltwater intrusion is a crucial issue in estuaries. The spread of salinity is described by the dispersion coefficient. A purely empirical equation which links the effective tidal average dispersion to the freshwater discharge was developed by Van der Burgh [1972]. Combining it with the salt balance equation, Savenije [1986] derived a one...

With the growth of global population, the big cities become increasingly crowded. It is not rare to see large crowds in public transportations and events with masses of visitors, such as music festivals and football matches. The question “How to deal with crowds” is receiving attention, both from academia and practical crowd management.
This...

We have developed a tow test setup for the reproducible measurement of the dynamic properties of different types of tethered membrane wings. The test procedure is based on repeatable automated maneuvers with the entire kite system under realistic conditions. By measuring line forces and line angles, we determine the aerodynamic coefficients and...

This thesis provides tools for decision support systems for perishable goods logistics. It also provides an approach for enterprises to estimate the benefit of adopting the proposed logistic systems. Perishable products are produced, transported, and consumed all over the world. Thanks to perishable goods supply chains, we can enjoy safe, fresh,...

Solid State Lighting (SSL) develops towards small size, high lumen output, high working temperature, and multi-functional applications. These trends are more desirable in miniaturized LED applications such as retrofit G4 LED devices. Retrofit G4 LEDs were chosen in this work as a technical carrier due to the miniaturized size challenge and high...

This dissertation describes how to design dielectric pads that can be used to increase image quality in Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and how to accelerate image reconstruction times using a preconditioner.

Image quality is limited by the signal to noise ratio of a scan. This ratio is increased for higher static magnetic field strengths...

In this work, we investigate electronic and magnetic phenomena in thin films and heterostructures of transition metal oxides with strong spin–orbit coupling. Ultrathin films are prepared by pulsed laser deposition, a technique which enables layer-by-layer growth of complex materials on atomically flat crystal surfaces. The properties of these...

Human brain consists of grey and white matter. Grey matter largely forms the
outer layer of the brain, and is responsible for decision making and functioning
of the human body. Complementary, the white matter (WM) contains the
communication pathways between the grey matter areas. Diffusion-weighted
magnetic resonance imaging ...
