In the following decades, biomass will play an important role among the other renewable energy sources globally as it is already the fourth largest energy resource after coal, oil and natural gas. It is possible to obtain gaseous, liquid or solid biofuels from biomass via thermochemical or biochemical conversion routes. Among them, gasification...

Networked Virtual Environments (NVEs) are virtual environments where physically distributed, Internet-connected users can interact and socialize with others. The most popular NVEs are online games, which have hundreds of millions of users and a global market of tens of billions Euros per year. Besides entertainments, NVE techniques are used in...

Estuarine morphodynamics are of broad importance to estuaries’ functions related to navigation, human settlement and ecosystems. Inspired by the Yangtze River estuary (YRE), this study aims to explore the impact of river discharge, tides and their interaction on long-term estuarine morphodynamics. Use is made of 1D and 2D process-based models....

Embedded systems have become an integral part of our life in the last few years in multifarious ways, be it in mobile phones, portable audio players, smart watches or even cars. Most embedded systems fall under the category of consumer electronics, such as televisions, mobile devices, and wearable electronics. With several players competing in...

The design and the optimization of electronic systems often requires a detailed knowledge of the inherent noise generated within semiconductor active devices, constituting the core of such systems. Examples of applications in which noise is a key issue include receiver front-ends in radiofrequency (RF) and optoelectronic transmission systems,...

Online networks like email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, eBay, and BitTorrent-like Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems have become popular and powerful infrastructures for communication. They involve potentially large numbers of humans with their collective inputs and decisions, and they often rely on the cooperation and the contribution of their users...

Noise levels due to road traffic have reached intolerable high levels in and around many urban areas all around the world. Because of health reasons and reasons of well- being these noise levels have to be reduced. The noise produced from the interaction between the rolling tyre and road surface is one of the most important contributions in the...

Growing worldwide oil demand increased the need of new and efficient oil recovery methods. Gas injection in oil reservoirs is deemed one of the most widely used methods to increase oil recovery. However, the full potential of gas injection is often not realized due to poor vertical and areal sweep efficiency of the gas. Foaming could be a...

Bicycle designers traditionally develop bicycles based on experience and trial and error. Adopting modern engineering tools to model bicycle and rider dynamics and control is another method for developing bicycles. This method has the potential to evaluate the complete design space, and thereby develop well handling bicycles for specific user...

With each new generation of IC process technologies, the impact of manufacturing variability is increasing. As such, design optimality is harder and harder to achieve and effective modeling tools and methods are needed to capture the effects of variability in such a way that it is understandable and useful to IC designers. Our research has been...

A considerable fraction of today's energy consumption is due to air-conditioning of buildings, involving both heating and cooling. Energy cost and environmental concerns force designers to find sustainable solutions. Desiccant cooling as a sustainable technology is attractive to be investigated for making different design tools. The main subject...

Al-Mg-Si alloys are heat treatable alloys in which strength is obtained by precipitation hardening. Precipitates, formed from a supersaturated solid solution during ageing heat treatment, are GP-zones, B", B´ and B-Mg2Si. Precipitation kinetics and strength vary with alloy composition and process parameters. There is still a need for property...

Chemical processes are generally operated at elevated temperatures and pressures, and energy intensive separations are usually necessary. This thesis focuses on the production of cyclohexanone, which is an intermediate of high commercial importance as a result of its use in nylon-6 and nylon-6,6 production. Using TiO2 based photo-catalysis is a...

Although being a young technology, peer-to-peer (P2P) networking has spurred dramatic evolution on the Internet over the recent twenty years. Unlike traditional server-client mode, P2P networking applications are user-centric. Users (peers) generate their own content and share it with others across the Internet. Be it a P2P file-sharing network,...

Modeling of the effects occurring outside the usual region of application of semiconductor devices is becoming more important with increasing demands set upon electronic systems for simultaneous speed and output power. Analog integrated circuit designers are forced to enter regimes of transistor operation that are close to or within the device...
