The half-space assumption has been employed in many solution methods for non-conforming contact problems in elasticity such as the Hertz theory and the Kalker's variational theory. It is generally believed that to guarantee acceptable accuracy in these half-space-based methods, the characteristic size (twice length of one semi-axis) of the...

The representation of aerosol-cloud interaction (ACI) processes in climate models, although long studied, still remains the source of high uncertainty. Very often there is a mismatch between the scale of observations used for ACI quantification and the ACI process itself. This can be mitigated by using the observations from groundbased remote...

The effects of sediment heterogeneity and sediment mobility on the morphology of braided rivers are still poorly studied, especially when the partial sediment mobility occurs. Nevertheless, increasing the bed sediment heterogeneity by coarse sediment supply is becoming a common practice in river restoration projects and habitat improvement...

The Dutch-Finnish Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) is an imaging spectrograph flying on NASA's EOS Aura satellite since 15 July 2004. OMI is primarily used to map trace-gas concentrations in the Earth's atmosphere, obtaining mid-resolution (0.4-0.6 nm) ultraviolet-visible (UV-VIS; 264-504 nm) spectra at multiple (30-60) simultaneous fields...

In this work, we investigated the effects of flocculation aid (FA) addition to an anaerobic dynamic membrane bioreactor (AnDMBR) (7 L, 35°C) treating waste-activated sludge (WAS). The experiment consisted of three distinct periods. In period 1 (day 1–86), the reactor was operated as a conventional anaerobic digester with a solids retention...

We report a study of heavy oil recovery by combined water flooding and electromagnetic (EM) heating at a frequency of 2.45 GHz used in domestic microwave ovens. A mathematical model describing this process was developed. Model equations were solved, and the solution is presented in an integral form for the one-dimensional case. Experiments...

The building sector in Singapore consumes up to half of the nation’s total energy. The government has therefore been urging the transformation of the industry by targeting 80% of all buildings to be green-certified by 2030. Thus far, Singapore has done relatively well, and is widely viewed as frontrunner in this respect. This paper addresses the...

During the last decades, time-series interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) has emerged as a powerful technique to measure various surface deformation phenomena of the earth. Early generations of time-series InSAR methodologies, i.e. Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI), focused on point targets, which are mainly man-made features...

Museum objects are often highly complex and composed of materials with varying properties, some of which may have changed as a result of ageing and/or conservation treatments. Research into defining sustainable environmental conditions by balancing energy cost and risk to these vulnerable objects has mainly focused on experiments in...

The rapid pace of urbanization has an impact on climate change and other environmental issues. Currently, 54% of the global population lives in cities accounting for two-thirds of global energy demand. Sustainable energy generation and consumption is the top humanity’s problem for the next 50 years. Faced with rising urban population and the...

While transport is essential for the functioning of the economy of each country, it is also contributing to CO2 emissions and other externalities, like safety risks and noise exposure. According to the Internal Energy Agency, around 23% of global CO2 emissions is related to the transport sector in 2015, making it second largest emitter after the...

Research finds that 90% of nursing home residents with dementia suffer from apathy, which negatively influences their physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being. The goal of this project-grounded research is to develop a product-service system that stimulates nursing homes residents, living with moderate to severe dementia, to reduce their...

This thesis unravels the long-term relationships between transport networks, land use and travel behaviour at a regional scale. It investigates these relationships by applying various methods to an extensive long-term geo-referenced database, in the case of the Greater Randstad Area in the Netherlands. Its findings shed light on the roles of...

The work presented in this thesis describes a route towards semi-crystalline polyamide (PA 10T) thermosets. A mild temperature solution polymerization method was developed to synthesize melt-processable PA 10T precursors with crosslinkable functionalities. These functionalities can be placed at the polymer chain-ends or as pedent groups on the...

User centered design of products, services, and systems is widely accepted. Numerous user research tools and methods exist to engage users and gather users’ insights to inform the design process. Unfortunately, time, effort, and expense of many tools often delay the availability of user insights. To address this concern, a series of studies...

During a seismic experiment, mechanical waves are usually generated by various manmade sources. These waves propagate in the subsurface and are recorded at receivers. Modern seismic exploration methods analyze them to infer the mechanical properties of the subsurface; this is commonly referred as quantitative imaging. These properties assist in...

In this paper we propose the concept of Substitutability and define it as ‘the extent to which one or multiple characteristics of the preferred travel behaviour alternative can be substituted by alternatives’. Characteristics include activity choice, mode choice, time choice, and route choice We argue it is a promising concept, which is relevant...

Door fusies zijn Nederlandse ziekenhuizen in de laatste decennia steeds groter geworden. Uit een meta-analyse van internationale studies blijkt dat de zorgkosten juist het laagst zijn in ziekenhuizen die kleiner zijn dan de meeste Nederlandse ziekenhuizen. Het is daarom onwaarschijnlijk dat verdere schaalvergroting de zorgkosten zal drukken.
