Currently, tons of high-quality borosilicate glass are discarded to landfills each year, taking up space on valuable land. Within the existing soda-lime glass recycling industry it is not possible to use recycled borosilicate glass due to its higher melting temperatures and a difference in chemical composition. In fact, borosilicate glass...

The building and construction sector play a key role in achieving a sustainable development. In European countries, buildings are responsible for 40-45% of energy consumption, leading to significant amounts of CO2 emissions. The implementation of reusable structures lead to less waste and harmful emissions to the environment. The main purpose of...

An extensive analysis on the boulevard of Casablanca, La Corniche, showed that this large leisure area acts as an exclusive strip that surrounds itself with clubs that act as a border between the boulevard and the ocean. Thereby turning the focus on the artificiality of the boulevard instead of on the natural landscape of the beach and the ocean...

Steel is commonly coated to protect it from corrosion. One method of applying this is by using Physical Vapor Deposition, which can be done by using multiple jets. In this process jets next to each other interact. This paper's main aim is to investigate the interaction effect of two rarefied two-dimensional vapor jets in vacuum and how this is...

Tailless flapping wing micro aerial vehicles (FMWAV) are known for their light weight and agility. However, given the fact that these FWMAVs have been recently developed, their flight dynamics have not yet been fully explained. In this paper we will develop local time-averaged longitudinal grey-box models based on closed-loop system...
