Diaz Cortes, G.B. (author)
Simulation of flow through highly heterogeneous porous media results in large ill-conditioned systems of equations. In particular, solving the linearized pressure system can be especially time-consuming. Therefore, extensive efforts to find ways to address this issue effectively are required. In this work, we introduce a POD-based deflation...

Some of the moons of the outer solar system harbour subsurface liquid oceans. Tidal dissipation plays an important role in preventing these oceans from freezing. In the past, most studies considered only tidal dissipation in the solid layers of these bodies (rock and ice). Recently, new studies considering tidal dissipation in the oceans of...

Damage due to the crystallization of salts is a common problem in porous building materials. Also mortars used in the restoration of historic buildings are often subjected to a high salt load, resulting in a rapid degradation and high maintenance costs. Especially lime-based mortars, used for example as render, plaster, bedding mortar or...

Worldwide, land reclamations are constructed for the urban expansion of coastal megacities. Freshwater supply plays an important role in their sustainable development, especially in the light of climate change and depletion of natural water resources in the hinterland. The subsurface of these new lands offer opportunities for subsurface...

A system is a set of interconnected components whose individual behaviour and interactions determine the overall performance of the set. Wind farms are amongst the most complex systems deployed worldwide, based on their uncertainty, heterogeneity and complexity. Moreover, many technical and social disciplines may simultaneously describe the...

Ozone (O3) directly and indirectly affects human health (depending on the altitude it is sometimes referred to as “good” or “bad” ozone) and has an important role in the temperature structure of the atmosphere. Because of the impact of ozone on air quality and climate change, the objective of this thesis is to improve our understanding of the...

Decreasing sediment availability, in combination with sea level rise and human fixation of the coastline, results in losses of the intertidal environment (lying in-between the mean low water and mean high water spring tide). This means a loss of biodiversity and an increased coastal vulnerability to extreme events and sea level rise. Thereforeit...

A topological superconductor is a new state of matter that attract a lot of interest for its potential application in quantum computers. However, there is no single material known to host this state of matter. In this thesis, combinations of superconductors and semiconductors are investigated experimentally with the goal to engineer such a...

The synergy between optimization and control is a long standing tradition. In fact, this synergy is becoming more and more apparent because of the multi-disciplinary character of the most pressing, current engineering problems along with constant developments of these two fields.
Historically, optimization methods have helped the control...

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a complications of diabetes mellitus, which progressively damages small retinal blood vessels and result in vision loss if not treated and controlled timely. Because of an increase in the risk of vision loss with the duration of diabetes and the latency between DR progression and early symptoms, diabetic patients...

Higher efficiencies, higher cavitation inception speeds and reduced acoustic signature are claimed benefits of flexible composite propellers. Analysing the hydrodynamic performance of these flexible propellers, implies that a coupled fluid-structure interaction (FSI) computation has to be performed. An FSI coupling can be monolithic, which means...

Sesquiterpenes are a versatile group of 15-carbon molecules, traditionally extracted from plants for diverse applications ranging from fuels to fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Scarcity of natural resources and emergence of new applications have encouraged the development of sustainable solutions to produce sesquiterpenes. The recent...

In view of rising global demand for aromatics as starting chemical for many commodity goods as well as pharmaceuticals, new routes for production are explored. Since the advent of fracking, natural gas has become increasingly cheap and direct utilization for aromatics production has gained attractiveness. Methane dehydroaromatization represents...

Metastable condensation is the phase transition from vapor to liquid that occurs in a fluid subjected to rapid temperature variations. Under these conditions, the nucleation process is triggered when the fluid is in a supersaturated thermodynamic state. The dispersed phase forming during the process of condensation is not in stable thermodynamic...

THIS thesis describes the development of a positionable waveguide array realized in a silicon nitride / silicon dioxide (Si3N4 core / SiO2 cladding) photonic platform. The positionable waveguide array is the heart of a novel alignment approach for high precision multi-channel chip-to-chip interconnects. This alignment approach enables submicron...

haploid S. cerevisiae laboratory strain of the CEN.PK family. The performance of the constructed hybrid, strain IMS0408, was then compared to those of its parents in anaerobic batch cultures grown on different media and at different temperatures. While S. eubayanus displayed significantly higher growth rates than S. cerevisiae in anaerobic batch...

Transition zones in railway tracks are locations with considerable changes in the vertical stiffness of the track support, which can be found near bridges, culverts and tunnels. In such locations, the stiffness variation and the differential settlement of tracks (uneven settlement of the track on the embankment and of the engineering structure)...
