Quantum computing promises an exponential speed-up of computation compared to what is nowadays achievable with classical computers. In this way, it enables the evaluation of more complex models and the breaching of current security algorithms. For the operation of a quantum system, many questions remain to be answered. Currently, there are...

We present a multidisciplinary design optimization method for the profile and structural reinforcement layout of a ram‐air kite rib. The aim is to minimize the structural elastic energy and to maximize the traction power of a ram‐air kite used for airborne wind energy generation. Because of the large deformations occurring during flight, a fluid...

We hebben in Nederland ongeveer 20.000 km waterkeringen en het is kostbaar en tijdrovend om deze regelmatig fysiek te inspecteren. Met radarsatellieten wordt deformatie op meer plekken, vaker, en nauwkeuriger gemeten. Hierdoor kan het gedrag van keringen continu worden gemonitord en kan afwijkend gedrag vroegtijdig worden gedetecteerd. Deze...

The modelling of social-ecological systems can provide useful insights into the interaction of social and environmental processes. However, quantitative social-ecological models should acknowledge the complexity and uncertainty of both underlying subsystems. For example, the agent-based models which are increasingly popular for groundwater...

Within estuaries one can often observe areas where the concentration of fine suspended sediments is higher than in the surrounding waters, called estuarine turbidity maxima (ETM). ETM play an important role in the natural and socio-economic value of estuaries. The suspended sediments can for example greatly diminish the value of the estuarine...

Magnetic skyrmions are two-dimensional topologicallyprotected spin textureswith particle like properties which may crystallize inlattices that are typically oriented perpendicular to the magnetic field. Theirfirst observation was in the archetype...

Covalent reversible chemistries give rise to polymers with reasonable mechanical properties yet require external stimuli to heal. Oppositely, supramolecular systems can heal autonomously, but their properties are still far away from most of those set by application requirements. Both downsides need to be addressed before intrinsic healing...

Existing empirical research on the link between ethnic minority concentration in residential environments and voting for the radical right is inconclusive, mainly due to major differences between studies in the spatial scale at which minority concentration is measured. We examined whether the presence of non-western ethnic minorities in the...

The spatial concentration of immigrants in disadvantaged neighbourhoods may hinder their opportunities for social and economic integration. It is therefore important that immigrants can translate their available economic resources into mobility to less disadvantaged neighbourhoods. This study adds to existing research on the relationship between...

This Ph.D. dissertation describes the theory and realization of wide-bandwidth magnetic sensors for current measurements which breach the conventional offset and noise constraints in CMOS processes. These are achieved by several circuit-level and system-level innovations, including the use of three orthogonal ripple reduction loops (RRLs) in...

The European Union and the United States are proposing to bring in more strict flight vehicle emission criteria in their reports of the high‐level groups on aviation research, i.e. EU Flightpath 2050 and US Destination 2025. More fuel‐efficient aircraft must be developed to achieve this target. Moreover, the increasingly competitive aviation...

In the 21st century, polar land ice melting became one of the driving factors of global sea level rise, which is discussed widely by the media and the public. Although the fact of the shrinking ice caps and accompanying changes in the sea level is established, the actual amount of polar ice melting still needs to be quantified in separate...

The microtubule cytoskeleton is an intracellular polymer network involved in cell shape, cell motility, and cell division. Microtubules are self-assembling, dynamic polymers composed of tubulin proteins that alternate between phases of growth and shrinkage, a behaviour known as “dynamic instability”. A key feature of microtubules is their...

This thesis presents research on Boundary Layer Ingestion (BLI). BLI is an unconventional aircraft-engine integration technique which aims at integrating the aircraft and the propulsion system such that the overall aircraft fuel consumption can be reduced.
This research begins with a literature survey on propulsion integration. The...

The rare earth elements (REEs) are a material group that is becoming increasingly important in modern day technologies, with applications in electronics (e.g. FeNdB magnets and luminescent phosphors), chemical industry (e.g. REE catalysts), energy industry (e.g. NiMH batteries and windmills) and medicine (e.g. Gd MRI contrast fluid). Considering...

This dissertation concerns transport measurements in single-molecule junctions using the mechanically controlled break junction (MCBJ) technique. It describes various aspects that play a role in charge transport through single molecules, in order to develop the necessary knowledge to ultimately develop electronic devices based on intrinsic...

Research has shown that staying indoors is not good for our health, even though the conditions seem to comply with current guidelines for indoor environmental quality (IEQ). The growing field of indoor health and comfort studies in schools, offices and homes, shows a discrepancy of current standards with end-users needs. In a previous review...

Global warming and the subsequent increase in the frequency and severity of wildfires demand for specialized risk assessment and management methodologies to cope with the ever-increasing risk of wildfires in wildland-industrial interfaces (WIIs). Wildfires can jeopardize the safety and integrity of industrial plants, and trigger secondary fires...
