Collaboration between the Global South and Global North is inevitable. It can work. It can be emphatic, effective, and more equal. However, there is a deeply embedded history of colonialism involving power asymmetries that give rise to the dismissal of value systems, which pervert this type of collaboration from being truly realised. Hence,...

Acidizing is a widely used technique for intensification of geothermal wells. At certain conditions, acid injection results in a formation of highly conductive channels, e.g. wormholes. The associated rock matrix dissolution is highly nonlinear and may influence the fluid flow as well as rock properties. Wormhole patterns and breakthrough time...

Due to increasing cost pressure, disturbances from customs and an opportunity seen in reducing costs by increasing the procurement and construction in the Far East, Damen Shipyards Gorinchem is changing the requirements for its supply chain. Changes to the supply chain however not only inflicts a large number of stakeholders, but the cost...

Optical microscopes are fundamentally limited to a resolution of several hundreds of nanometers by the diffraction of light. Single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) circumvents this limit by sparsely exciting fluorescent molecules at different time instances. Single molecules can subsequently be localized with improved precision over the...

Patients with a Fontan circulation have a diminished life expectancy of only 30-40 years old. A mechanical circulatory assist device can potentially increase their life expectancy and quality of life. Given the complexity of the anatomy and physiology of the Fontan circulation, design of a safe and effective mechanical assist device is a...

Although inland waterways (IWW) are considered one of the most reliable transport modes, it is very vulnerable to climate change, more than other transport modes such as rail and road transport. The inland waterway transport (IWT) performance strongly depends on the available water depth in the waterway, which is related to the river discharge....

To reduce the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect Green Infrastructure (GI) is seen as a key measure. Though, often the need for water to evaporate is neglected. This study focuses on showing the effects of irrigation and increased soil moisture contents on GI within urban areas to reduce the UHI-effect. ENVI-met, a micro-climate model, is used to...

In the Netherlands, the frequency and severity of extreme rainfall events are expected to increase. This can result in severely detrimental effects. It is complicated for municipal actors to effectively manage these events, as it requires judgement on probabilities, costs, and uncertain impacts. As a result, obtaining scientific knowledge...

Several initiatives are being developed to shift the current paradigm in Air Traffic Management (ATM) from the tactical-based approach to more strategic-based coordination of flights. This transformation of the ATM system relies on the improvement of predictive models that predict the 4D-trajectory of an aircraft. Previous studies primarily...

Nowadays cycling rates in most European cities are increasing, while many governments are looking for ways to integrate cycling into the daily lives of citizens not only as a leisure activity but also as an official means of transport. At the same time, a large part of the population itself aims to influence decision-makers and urban planners to...

With current technology, it has been found that the feasibility of long-term adaptable exploration missions at the far reaches of the Solar System and beyond is limited, due to shortcomings in conventional propulsion systems. Electrodynamic tether (EDT) propulsion methods may provide a viable alternative, utilising either the interplanetary...

The Port of Rotterdam Authority (PoRA) aims to be CO2 neutral by 2050. To achieve this goal, they have proposed three steps to make an energy transition. The transition focuses on shifting from fossil energy towards renewable energy, like wind energy, hydrogen and geothermal heat. The Port of Rotterdam (PoR) is an important area to make this...

Research shows that most of the security issues arise through human shortcomings, instead of technical issues (Abawajy, 2014). Therefore, users of information systems have to become more security aware. The reasonable solution to these human shortcomings was to provide users with policies that tell them what to do and have the technical systems...

The duration of protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide is still uncertain (Murray & Piot, 2021). Therefore, a possible future scenario is that the entire population will need an extra dose of a vaccine. Yearly recurring flu vaccinations take place at general practices (GP), so this might also be the case for COVID-19 vaccinations. General...

Following recent proof of swept wing laminar-to-turbulent boundary layer transition delay through base-flow modification using AC-DBD plasma actuators, an experimental investigation is performed to study the responsible physical mechanism. An experiment is conducted on a 45° swept wing in the anechoic wind tunnel at the Delft University of...

In the oil and gas industry, it is crucial that the transport of hydrocarbons through long pipelines occurs in the most efficient and safest way. These pipelines can cover up to several tens to hundreds of kilometres. Hydrocarbons are not the only fluids present within the pipelines, often they are filled with a mixture of oil, gas, water and...

A High Voltage (HV) Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) based Arbitrary Wave shape Generator (AWG) is to be designed for a final voltage of 100 kV with 67 submodules in each arm. They can be used to test unconventional stresses experienced by high voltage equipment. Before the realization of a full-scale prototype setup, it is necessary to...

The urge to promote mental health and well-being is gaining increasing importance and attention in recent years. Adolescents, who are among the most vulnerable under this aspect, are experiencing an increase in mental health complaints and need of youth care in the Netherlands. In addition, they perceive current means of care as inappropriate to...
