High-resolution surveying techniques of subtidal soft-bottom seafloor habitats show higher small-scale variation in topography and sediment type than previously thought, but the ecological relevance of this variation remains unclear. In addition, high-resolution surveys of benthic fauna show a large spatial variability in community...

During the renovation of auditoria and concert halls, the acoustic quality is normally evaluated from measurements of impulse responses. One possibility for evaluating the acoustic quality from the measurements (the simulations) consists of convolving anechoic music with the measured (or simulated) impulse responses. In this way, a psycho...

Social skills are often an integral part of functioning in modern society, and therefore, in the past decades, social skills training has received considerable research attraction. Various physical and digital approaches have been developed to improve people’s performance in social interaction. Among these approaches, social skills training...

Surveillance of communications data is a contentious topic, typically centering on privacy vs. security questions. Central to this debate, but often overlooked, is the question of the effectiveness of the surveillance technology. This dissertation focuses on intelligence agencies in the U.S. and the U.K. and the evaluation of the effectiveness...

We discuss a mathematical model for the equatorial current across the Pacific Ocean, obtained as a leading-order solution to the Navier-Stokes governing equations for geophysical flows in a rotating frame.

The basis of this thesis has been the curiosity, however modest, to understand how DNA replication happens in vivo, particularly during the onset of DNA damage and beyond. DNA damage is a recurring phenomenon, which a (bacterial) cell faces in its lifetime from the environment or even its inherent metabolism. While we understand much about...

This paper presents a wavelet analysis technique together with support vector machines (SVM) to discriminate partial discharges (PD) from external disturbances (electromagnetic noise) in a GIS PD measuring system based on magnetic antennas. The technique uses the Cross Wavelet Transform (XWT) to process the PD signals and the external...

Departing from two problem statements, one concerning circularity in the built environment and one concerning flexibility in the built environment, this dissertation sets out to answer two main research questions: – In an Open Building division of support and infill, to what extent can the infill contribute to sustainable circular material &...

Medical studies are rarely easy, and it is especially challenging to understand brain disease. Brains are highly complex organs, and it is, for instance, hard to see the relationships between behavioural change in a person and the changes in the connections among the billions of cells in the brain that cause this behavioural change. Many brain...

Quantitative physiological studies on Saccharomyces cerevisiae commonly use synthetic media (SM) that contain a set of water-soluble growth factors that, based on their roles in human nutrition, are referred to as B vitamins. Previous work demonstrated that in S. cerevisiae CEN.PK113-7D, requirements for biotin were eliminated by laboratory...

Corona is one of the most common forms of partial discharge (PD) occurring in high voltage (HV) energy systems. The corona mechanism in air is not exclusive to the field of energy applications but has also been widely studied by physicists to theorize mechanisms of charge transfer during the different phases of gas discharge. The phases of the...

Classical saw-tooth Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radars experience a coupling between the maximum unambiguous Doppler-velocity interval, maximum operational range, range-resolution and processing gain. Operationally, a trade-off is often necessarily made between these parameters. In this paper, we propose a waveform and a...

In this paper, we present a complex network analysis of the air transport network using the air cargo, instead of the passenger, perspective. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work where a global cargo network comprising passenger airlines, full-cargo airlines, and integrators’ capacity was studied. We used estimated yearly cargo...

Abstract: When exposed to a thermal beam of hydrogen atoms, gas-phase coronene cations C<sub>24</sub>H<sub>12</sub><sup>+</sup> can be sequentially hydrogenated. This process is accompanied by a gradual transition of the electronic structure from aromatic to aliphatic. The planar very stable coronene structure transforms into the...

Auxiliary lift and/or thrust on a compound helicopter can introduce complex aerodynamic interactions between the auxiliary lift and thrust components and the main rotor. In this study high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics analyses were performed to capture the various aerodynamic interactions which are occurring for the Airbus RACER...

Lattice-Boltzmann Very-Large-Eddy Simulations of two Diffuser-Augmented Wind Turbines are carried out to investigate the effect of the tip-clearance (TC) ratio on both the flow field and the far-field noise. The DonQi® wind turbine, a three blades ducted rotor with nominal TC of 2.5%, is chosen as reference test case. The second configuration...

High-Temperature superconducting (HTS) generators are being considered as a competitive candidate in large direct-drive (DD) wind turbines because of their features of being lightweight and compact. Normally a large air gap is inevitable in partially HTS generators, sacrificing the torque producing capability. In this paper, multi-phase...

Resilience has become a buzzword used to describe the capacity of cities to bounce back after disasters. It carries the hope of a robust and more sustainable future. Disasters can strike any region, but port cities face complex and particular risks due to their location at the intersection of sea and land, and their role in an international...

Natural and man-induced coastal erosion endanger life and environment in coastal areas worldwide. For sedimentary barrier coasts, beach and underwater nourishments are an efficient coastal protection strategy. To optimize nourishments and to understand their impact on the marine environment, monitoring strategies are required. In this study,...
