In recent years cooperatives for renewable energy supply (REScoops) have emerged as important new actors in energy markets. They provide their members (i.e., households) with renewably generated energy within a cooperative model that enables members to co-decide on its strategic and tactical goals, plans and business model. REScoops do not only...

Planetary Radio Interferometry and Doppler Experiment (PRIDE) is a multi-purpose experimental technique aimed at enhancing the science return of planetary missions. It is based on, the near-field phase-referencing VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry) and radial Doppler measurements. It has been developed initially by the Joint Institute for...

Because clouds scatter and absorb incident radiation, they play crucial roles in the radiative balance, the atmospheric chemistry, climate, and thus the habitability
of a planet. Clouds usually affect the planet’s observables. We investigate here the effect of partial and variable cloud coverage on the light that is reflected by an

Feeder nourishments, where sand quantities of O (10 million m³) are placed locally to feed adjacent coastal stretches, are suggested nowadays as an alternative for local, smaller-scale nourishments (< 1 million m³). These feeder nourishments rely on natural forces to spread the sediment. While processes that govern this spreading such as...

This paper presents a constitutive relationship to describe the uniaxial response in statics of brick and mortar samples of Adobe. This defines a traditional masonry whose components are made of soil mixture reinforced with fibres. Only recently Adobe has started attracting scientific attention, primarily as a consequence of the dramatic...

The Sand Engine is an example of a feeder nourishment that is intended to nourish coastal systems. This strategy is based on placing sediments highly concentrated at one location, from which it is expected to spread alongshore over large distances on decadal timescales.

Here the morphological development of the Sand Engine mega feeder...

This paper investigates embankment reliability based on the ultimate limit state (ULS). The ULS is generally not clearly defined and, especially for flood defences, the ULS is currently under discussion. According to Dutch law [1], flooding which leads to either casualties or substantial financial damage is considered as the ultimate limit state...

Earth houses are considered sustainable and affordable as compared to houses built with concrete or fired clay bricks. Moreover, it preserves the vernacular social and spatial traditions (cultural identity) of the community. With rapid industrialization and the increase in popularity of concrete and brick constructions, a decline in earth houses...

Our community believes that new domain-specific languages should be as general as possible to increase their impact. However, I argue that we should stop claiming generality for new domain-specific languages. Instead, we should document how domain-specific language based software development is beneficial to the overall software development...

The work reports on experimental study of flow and pressure pulsations in draft-tube of a laboratory air model of a Francis hydro-turbine operating over a broad range of regimes corresponding to different combinations of the runner rotation speed and flowrates. The velocity measurements using a computer-automated laser-Doppler anemometer and the...

In practical combustion-based devices, such as internal combustion (IC) engines and gas turbines for power generation, there exists significant interaction between gas-phase combustion and metal surfaces. The nature of this heterogeneous interaction is complex, involving both physical and chemical effects. The metal surface is generally much...

Long-distance travelling accounts for a significant and increasing part of the mileage of person travel and the respective environmental impacts (Van Goeverden et al, 2016). Energy consumption and emissions connected with long-distance travelling might be substantially reduced through use of evacuated tubes of low air resistance, such as the...

We develop simultaneous ultrafast CARS thermometry and species detection as a unique tool to investigate combustion modes with reduced emissions of NOx, particulates, CO and unburned hydrocarbons. Coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) has been developed over the last 4 decades for various gas-phase-, plasma-, flame- and combustion...

Due to the latest funder requirements on data management and Open Data, documenting and managing research data during the research and preparing it for publication gained in importance. Making research data findable and accessible for decades via a trusted and certified data archive – such as 4TU.Centre for Research Data – and therefore enabling...
