Boersma, S. (author)
Electricity consumption is increasing on a global level. In 2017, non-renewable energy sources such as crude oil, natural gas and coal provided 76% of the required energy, while 24% came from renewable sources such as hydro, wind and solar. Non-renewable sources are finite because they do not replenish rapidly enough relative to the rate at...

A method is presented to model deformation and fracture behavior of 3D printed disordered lattice materials under uniaxial tensile load. A lattice model was used to predict crack pattern and load-displacement response of the printed lattice materials. To include the influence of typical layered structures of 3D printed materials in the...

In this dissertation, structural wind turbine blade layouts are presented that are suitable for 10MW and 20MW wind turbine blades. This has been accomplished by using a medium fidelity static aeroelastic model embedded in an optimisation framework. The structural solutions are the result of a stiffness optimisation where the blade mass is...

The building sector currently accounts for approximately one-third of the global demand for energy, and one-fifth of all energy-related greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). The development and adoption of energy-efficient technologies in this sector is therefore a key element towards efforts for the mitigation of climate change. In particular,...

In nature, solar energy conversion occurs with a process called photosynthesis. Although the overall energy efficiency of the storage of the energy of sunlight into biomass is low, the individual photophysical processes that occur have a high quantum yield. In the latter sense, natural photosynthesis can serve as a valuable inspiration for the...

Surface heat fluxes (latent and sensible heat over the land surface) play a key role in the land-atmosphere interaction, and their spatial pattern as well as temporal evolution are vital to the terrestrial water cycle and surface energy balance. Ideally, we want to have accurate estimates of spatially distributed and temporally continuous fluxes...

In order to meet emission targets for 2050 in Europe transport needs to be executed more 2 efficiently. A promising way to make transport more efficient is synchromodal transport. When the 3 service provider has more flexibility to arrange transport, the utilization and use of intermodal transport, 4 such as rail, can be increased and emissions...

In Europe, different road authorities have to face the ever increasing pressure to integrate their road network service provision with - often conflicting - different trends and conditions such as congestion, climate change, individualism, urbanization, safety, environmental issues and economic growth. There is also a need to cooperate with...

This paper presents a model specifically developed to explore the mobility impacts of connected and automated driving and shared mobility. It is an explorative iterative model that uses an elasticity model for destination choice, a multinomial logit model for mode choice and a network fundamental diagram to assess traffic impacts. To the best of...

An in-situ hyphenated optical and electrochemical method for the real-time study of corrosion and corrosion inhibition processes is presented and validated for the case of AA2024-T3 exposed to two NaCl concentrations and six inhibitors. During testing, 5 μm resolution optical images of the exposed surface are obtained in parallel to...

Multiphase alloys such as advanced high strength steels show limited ductility due to interface decohesion at internal boundaries. This interface decohesion is caused by dislocations that pile-up at interfaces in the material, where they cause a stress concentration. This stress concentration in turn can lead to interface decohesion, resulting...

Solid-state phase transformations in steels cover a broad range of aspects. The underlying physics behind these phase transformations usually include nucleation, diffusion, lattice reconstruction and interactions between solutes and grain boundaries and interfaces. These features and the fact that the events take place at high temperatures, in...

The root zone storage capacity (Sr) of vegetation is an important parameter in the hydrological behaviour of a catchment. Traditionally, Sr is derived from soil and vegetation data. However, more recently a new method has been developed that uses climate data to estimate Sr based on the assumption that vegetation adapts its root zone storage...

This research departs from the desire to understand the practice of reuse of building products from a systemic standpoint, representing a network of multiple factors influencing the process of reusing. Through the Industrial Ecology theoretical framework, these relations are dynamic and contextually bounded defining the commercial feasibility of...

Wind energy is becoming an important contributor in the world’s energy needs. An important trend in wind turbine design is the focus on reliability and increased availability of wind turbines. This is the aim of the study. It focusses its attention on the generator and power electronic converter due to the susceptibility of the generator system...

Cancer is a genetic disease. The activation, alteration or deactivation of cancer genes can stimulate undesirable cell-proliferation. Cancer genes can be subdivided into oncogenes and tumor suppressors. Oncogenes, such as growth factor receptors, are altered and/or overexpressed genes that are causally linked to tumorigenesis. Tumor suppressors,...

A quantum computer needs the assistance of a classical algorithm to detect and identify errors that affect encoded quantum information. At this interface of classical and quantum computing the technique of machine learning has appeared as a way to tailor such an algorithm to the specific error processes of an experiment - without the need...

Driving simulators provide researchers with a flexible, controllable, safe, and economical tool for a range of applications. A pivotal aspect in the application of driving simulators is the development of measures aimed at describing the behavior and performance of the driver and providing knowledge about the way drivers are controlling their...

4-electrode setups are usually used to measure the dielectric response (complex conductivity) of sandstones, as it is known that 2-electrode systems are sensitive to unwanted electrode polarization at low frequency. Moreover, electrode polarization (EP) occurs in the frequency range where the characteristic relaxation associated to the grain...
