The use of bolted connections between the tower and a support structure of an offshore wind turbine has created the need for a method to detect whether a monopile foundation plastically deforms during the installation procedure. Small permanent deformations are undesirable, not only because they can accelerate fatigue of the structure; but...

We derive an idealized model of a gravel-sand river bifurcation and analyze its stability properties. The model requires nodal point relations that describe the ratio of the supply of gravel and sand to the two downstream branches. The model predicts changes in bed elevation and bed surface gravel content in the two bifurcates under...

Many energy cases suffer from social opposition. It is increasingly asserted that paying due attention to the moral values involved in controversial energy cases may increase social acceptance. Value-sensitive design (VSD) has been recommended as a promising approach for addressing moral values in controversial energy cases. This paper aims...

Smart grid systems are considered as key enablers in the transition to more sustainable energy systems. However, debates reflect concerns that they affect social and moral values such as privacy and justice. The energy justice framework has been proposed as a lens to evaluate social and moral aspects of changes in energy systems. This paper...

High-silica zeolites have been found to be effective adsorbents for the removal of organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) from impaired water, including various pharmaceuticals, personal care products, industrial chemicals, etc. In this review, the properties and fundamentals of high-silica zeolites are summarised. Recent research on mechanisms and...

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions contribute to climate change. The public water utility of Amsterdam wants to operate climate neutrally in 2020 to reduce its GHG emissions. Energy recovery from the water cycle has a large potential to contribute to this goal: the recovered energy is an alternative for fossil fuel and thus contributes to the...

Contemporary society heavily depends on fossil sources. The energy and materials derived from fossil reserves were major contributors to the acceleration and intensification of agriculture and industry over the past 100 years. Such reserves are finite, hence, after expanding geographically, our economy is now consuming natural reserves that...

Plasticity models are frequently used to describe ceramic materials. Well established and often used ceramic models are those by Johnson and Holmquist. These are softening plasticity models for which mesh dependency is a well known problem. A viscosity or rate dependency can be added to the material model to provide regularization and solve...

Representation of land-use and hydrologic interactions in respective models has traditionally been problematic. The use of static land-use in most hydrologic models or that of the use of simple hydrologic proxies in land-use change models call for more integrated approaches. The objective of this study is to assess whether dynamic feedback...

The title of this dissertation is Armchair travelling the innovation journey. ‘Armchair travelling’ is an expression for travelling to another place, in the comfort of one’s own place. ‘The innovation journey’ is the metaphor Van de Ven and colleagues (1999) have used for travelling the uncharted river of innovation, the highly unpredictable and...

In this thesis, a technique is developed to manipulate individual atoms on an ionic surface, with great precision and at a large scale, to study the quantum mechanical properties of atomic assemblies on the nanoscale.

We use the needle of a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) to approach missing atoms - vacancies - in a chlorine...

The technique called "flameless combustion", also denoted as "MILD" combustion, was developed to reduce the nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission in the combustion process. The term "flameless" refers to the low visibility of the flame. The technique is particularly of interest when hot exhaust gas is used to preheat inlet air to high temperature. The...

Fault-Tolerant Flight Control (FTFC) systems reconfigure aircraft flight control laws to help restore a controlled flight and preserve acceptable performance under systemfaults. A typical approach to achieve fault tolerance is using inertial sensor measurementswhich can provide robustness to abrupt changes in the aircraft dynamics. This method...

(Poly)methyl methacrylate is a valuable thermoplastic with wide application in several fields. Currently, methyl methacrylate (MMA) can be produced from ethene via methyl propionate using the Alpha technology, a more environmentally friendly method than the typical acetonecyanohydrin route. Nevertheless, the use of lignocellulosic materials as...

The electronic industry strives continuously to increase the performance of electronic components by adding new functionality, by making them more energy efficient or by increasing their absolute performance. This last possibility is mainly achieved by a higher density of electrical components. In a photo-lithographic process, this is associated...

The title ‘Seditious Spaces’ is derived from one aspect of Britain’s colonial legacy in Malaysia (formerly Malaya): the Sedition Act 1948. While colonial rule may seem like it was a long time ago, Malaysia has only been independent for sixty-one years, after 446 years of colonial rule. The things that we take for granted today, such as democracy...

Since more than half of the world population already lives in cities, it is important to understand the urban climate and its particularities. One of the typical aspects of urban areas is that cities are generally warmer than their rural surrounding. This phenomenon was first time described 200 years ago in the case of London and is commonly...

Pressure reconstruction based on particle image velocimetry (PIV) refers to the determination of pressure data from pictures of small tracer particles added to a flow. The technique possesses a unique combination of beneficial characteristics in that it non-intrusively provides simultaneous pressure and velocity data in the flow field without...

Transition and flow development in a separation bubble formed on an airfoil are studied experimentally. The effects of tonal and broadband acoustic excitation are considered since such acoustic emissions commonly result from airfoil self-noise and can influence flow development via a feedback loop. This interdependence is decoupled, and the...
