There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

Many people living in low-middle-income countries (LMICs) are affected by injuries that develop into chronic wounds and, without adequate treatment, may lead to disabilities or even cause death. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) is currently a highly suitable manner to treat complex and chronic wounds. NPWT uses controlled negative pressure...

The experience of using a car can be defined as a lot of things. How comfortable it is to drive in? Or just sit in? What entertainment features does the car have that can keep all passengers entertained for a car journey? Or even for the more extreme motor heads, how does the engine sound when going through a tunnel? All of these factors shape...

With variable renewable energy on the rise, large-scale energy storage is needed to assure grid stability. Thermal energy storage (TES) is a new player in the large-scale energy storage landscape, but might prove a cheap, safe and reliable option, with low permitting barriers. TES is not geographically limited, generally compact and has a low...

When attempting to enter a market, it is of the utmost importance to make a well-thought decision. Numerous academics have examined the first-mover advantage literature to determine whether entering first, second, or late is more advantageous. After many decades, there is still no consensus, and it appears that we are in a dialogue of the deaf....

In recent years the popularity of VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) drones has increased significantly. Due to their hybrid design, these drones can take off and land vertically and fly horizontally, enabling them to land in difficult terrain and have a more extensive range than the Quadcopter counterpart. However, this hybrid design also...

Nowadays, mental illnesses are universal around the globe. However, compared with developed countries, the health budget assigned to mental health is much lower in low-income or developing countries (Mnookin et al., 2016). Even in China, a country with a large population, the epidemiological data on mental health (anxiety and depression) are too...

Electrification by means of renewable energy sources in electricity production (RES-E) is a key strategy to meet global climate goals established in the Paris Agreement. The increasing share of RES-E as a result of this has significant implications on the functioning of the electricity system and the adequacy of the electricity market design, as...

Climate is changing. It is widely accepted that irrespective of the emission reductions efforts, adaptation to the already committed climate change is a must in the coming decades. Flooding is one of the most devastating climate-induced hazards, calling for adaptation across scales: from government-led adaptation (e.g. dikes), to personal...

Nature-based solutions are solutions that (partly) consist of, or contribute to, living nature, which can provide economical, social and environmental benefits. Especially in the building sector they can have huge benefits over conventional (grey) solution as this sector uses a lot of resources and energy. The benefits that nature-based...

The transition towards greener mobility will play a significant role in decarbonizing the economy. Hence, policy makers need tools that allow them to test alternatives towards that goal. This drive has led to the development of increasingly accurate transport models, with the latest generation being activity-based transport demand models. These...

Discontinuities have an important influence on the bulk behaviour of geomaterials. Discontinuities can be physical openings like fractures and joints, interfaces between different material types, or zones with different material behaviour like mortar or reinforcement material. Bulk material behaviour is often determined by the behaviour of the...

The Paris agreement has set European countries on a path towards decarbonization of the energy market. Due to the high dependence of natural gas in the Netherlands, various challenges will be faced when facing out fossil fuels. The major drawback of RES is that they are non-dispatchable, meaning their output generation fluctuates over time with...
