Ethiopia’s energy demand is expected to increase sevenfold in the coming 30 years, resulting in increased variable renewable electricity (VRE) production by solar PV and wind. Energy storage acts as a buffer that mitigates the effects of over- or under-capacity in production by VRE. With 97% of global bulk energy storage, pumped hydro storage is...

The impact of the ICAO code C gate span limit is assessed on the sizing of a serial Hybrid Electric Aircraft (HEA) of increasing Degree of Hybridization (DoH). For a set of Top Level Aircraft Requirements (TLARs) similar to the ATR-42, it is shown that the increase in MTOM due to the presence of the battery is such that only a maximum DoH under...

We report our most recent progress and demonstration of a frequency domain multiplexing (FDM) readout technology for transition-edge sensor (TES) arrays, both of which we have been developing in the framework of the X-IFU instrument on board the future Athena X-ray telescope. Using Ti/Au TES micro-calorimeters, high-Q LC filters and analog...

DNA mismatch repair-deficient (MMR-d) cancers present an abundance of neoantigens that is thought to explain their exceptional responsiveness to immune checkpoint blockade (ICB)<sup>1,2</sup>. Here, in contrast to other cancer types<sup>3–5</sup>, we observed that 20 out of 21 (95%) MMR-d cancers with genomic inactivation of β2-microglobulin ...

Fibrous networks are essential structural components of biological and engineered materials. Accordingly, many approaches have been developed to quantify their structural properties, which define their material properties. However, a comprehensive overview and comparison of methods is lacking. Therefore, we systematically searched for...

Fused filament fabrication (FFF) is the most used additive manufacturing technique that uses a heated nozzle to melt a polymer and a feeder to extrude it on a buildplate. The dependencies of temperature, shear-rate, viscosity and pressure of the melt create complex dynamics within the nozzle, which causes inconsistent extrusion. To improve...

A crisis requires the affected population, governments or non-profit organizations, as well as crisis experts, to make urgent and sometimes life-critical decisions. With the urgency and uncertainty they create, crises are particularly amenable to inducing cognitive biases that influence decisionmaking. However, there is limited empirical...

All investment firms in Europa must track the market quality of different exchanges and choose the best for their clients. Previous research has shown that a limit order book with additional market makers performs best in terms of market quality, followed by a pure limit order book and market maker. With the rise of cryptocurrencies, a new...

Maastricht is located between two extremities. On the one hand, the center that seems to be frozen in a heritage policy that allows little flexibility. On the other hand, the suburbs where the change is so intense that time layers are constantly being wiped away and what remains seems generic. The site of this graduation project is located...

Being able to estimate atrial tissue conductivity parameters from epicardial electrograms is an important tool in diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation. One of these parameters is the atrial fibre direction, which is often assumed to be known in conductivity estimation methods. In this thesis, a novel method...

Single-Stage-To-Orbit (SSTO) launch vehicles are capable of reaching orbit while being potentially fully reusable. A technology capable of enabling SSTO access to space is the air-breathing engine, which has a high specific impulse and low thrust-over-weight (T/W) ratio compared to conventional rocket engines. This necessitates the use of a...

As software systems evolve over time, the quality of its structure and code degrade unless developers regularly maintain it, requiring significant effort. Automated tools to help developers maintain software have been well-studied in the past. <br/>In particular, software remodularisation tools focus on improving the code structure quality with...

Shipping is, and will continue to be, the most important transportation method around the globe. A vital part of the logistic chain, it is also one of the main contributors to the worldwide CO2 emissions. Current propulsion technologies all rely on the same classic diesel driven technology, as diesel is widely available and has a high energy...

In the DST project, a deployable space telescope is designed for the thermal infrared spectrum. For this project, a new Systems Engineering (SE) approach was needed, since the SE was outdated and the project worked in silos. Important goals for the SE approach were that it was easy to use and minimizes the workload by automating as much as...

Recent developments in the field of hybrid-electric propulsion (HEP) have opened the door to a wide range of novel aircraft configurations with improved energy efficiency. These electrically-driven powertrains enable “distributed propulsion” configurations, in which the aerodynamic interaction between the propulsive devices and the airframe is...

Many new logistics initiatives arise based on the principles of resource sharing through crowdsourcing. Sharing unused and/or underused resources can deliver new efficiencies in the logistics value chain in an industry where efficiency is the name of the game. The benefits of applying sharing economy concepts in logistics in terms of higher...

Technological innovations are a key part of the energy transition. However, the social sphere as a force to facilitate the energy transition must not be neglected. While the socio-technical transition theory provides a framework to connect the technological with the social sphere, the role of the individuals within the transition process remains...

In the assessment of existing infrastructure performing only a desk study is often not sufficient to determine the structural reliability of a bridge or viaduct. For concrete structures gathering field data by performing a proof load test offers detailed information about the structural performance. However, the relation between the magnitude of...

The goal of this study is to analyze how the aero-propulsive benefits of an over-the-wing distributed-propulsion (OTWDP) system at component level translate into an aero-propulsive benefit at aircraft level, and to determine whether this enhancement is sufficient to lead to a reduction in overall energy consumption. For this, the preliminary...
