Photovoltaic (PV) solar energy is variable and not completely predictable; therefore, different energy storage devices have been researched. Among the variety of options, electrochemical cells (commonly called batteries) are technically feasible because of their maturity and stability. However, PV-battery systems face multiple challenges such as...

Current and future space missions require agile and reliable spacecraft capable of trailing and keeping the required attitude. Most of the agile spacecraft missions are near-Earth based but some are placed far away from Earth and its influence. One example of such missions is the Athena mission, which requires the spacecraft to perform fast and...

A new photoplethysmography-based device called the Multiphotodiode Array (MPA) was validated to successfully measure the PWV in the vasculature of the distal phalanx of healthy subjects. It comprises an array of photodiodes and an array of opposing LEDs to detect blood volume changes due to the passing pressure pulse wave in the vasculature of...

In recent years a return of supersonic transportation has begun with companies looking to launch supersonic aircraft in the coming decade. However, supersonic environmental regulations are still based on Concorde. This thesis looks to predict the performance of new supersonic aircraft for ICAO through a low-fidelity program with a set of climate...

When propellers are operating near the free surface,  phenomenon called ventilation might occur. Due to insufficient immersion and high thrust loading, the propeller draws air, resulting in a reduced thrust. Reduced thrust may have consequences such as loss of propulsive power, control and steerability, and may therefore be...

The vast majority of previous studies on household energy consumption (HEC) has presumed that the influencing factors of HEC are similar in each and every location regardless of the location specific circumstances. In other words, they assume that some generalizable facts explain the level of HEC and energy poverty across all areas of a city,...

Photocatalysis involves the absorption of photons by a semiconductor to enhance chemical reactions. Examples of important applications include the degradation of hazardous chemicals, reduction of carbon dioxide to valuable chemicals and (partial) oxidation of hydrocarbons. Despite many successful demonstrations of this technology at lab-scale,...
