To anticipate for future demand of sustainable liquid fuels, Zero Emission Fuels B.V. develops a solar powered micro plant which produces methanol from water and carbon dioxide captured from outside air. An intermediate step in this process is the electrolysis of water to create hydrogen which reacts with carbon dioxide to methanol. This study...

As the world population is increasing and cities grow faster than before, food scarcity becomes a bigger issue. To depend less on import and decrease CO2 footprint, food should be produced nearby its consumers. A good solution for food production is a greenhouse which provides a steady high yield throughout the year. Some of the world's fastest...

When experimenting with the compression of a gas similar to the output of a CO2 Direct Air Captureunit using an off-the-shelf lubricated compressor, Zero Emission Fuels B.V.(ZEF) encountered severecondensation, damaging the compressor. This explorative study aims to identify the cause of thisproblem, create a concept solution, and test this...

This research studies the fluid-structure interaction (FSI) of compliant surfaces in air flows, with an objective of finding possible turbulent viscous drag reduction. A compliant surface is a thin layer of viscoelastic material drawing inspiration from dolphin epidermis, which was thought to have drag-reducing capabilities by Gray (1936)....

Predicting when a neonate will fall victim to an infection or a disease allows prevention through early medicine administering. Such physiological conditions can be made visible using infrared thermography (IRT). This is a technique for measuring heat emitted in the infrared spectrum and transforming them into visible...

Increase in global energy demand has brought to a massive rise in greenhouse gases emissions. In particular, the continuously increasing atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide is a major concern among the scientific community. This paved the way for an intense research of CO2 emissions mitigating technologies. Those ones including carbon...

The drainage time of liquid-filled PET bottles can be greatly reduced by pre-rotating the bottle with a certain angular velocity. Depending on the magnitude of the angular velocity, up to four different flow regimes can be distinguished during the emptying of a bottle: bubble regime, transition regime, vortex<br/>regime and the swirl regime. At...

The work presented in this report investigates the effect of replacing natural gas fuel in a radiant tube burner in an industrial furnace with hydrogen fuel. The flue gas is fully contained inside the radiant tube burner and does not come into contact with the iron products inside the furnace. The burner interacts with the process side of the...

The purpose of this study was to create a theoretical model for the distillation of synthetic crude oil (syncrude) into straight-run naphtha, kerosene and gas oil fractions, at a scale of 235 ktfeed/year. To that end, a process model was created that receives the output of a Co-LTFT process as raw feed. The raw feed was prefractionated to remove...

Optical measurement techniques are widely used in fluid mechanics to measure quantities like velocity, vorticity, and temperature. They are usually non-intrusive visualization techniques that provide a major advantage by not influencing the flow properties. Most of the developed measurement techniques estimate vorticity by computing the...

In some countries, drying processes use up to 20% of the total energy consumption. Within the agriculture sector, drying of food and flowering products is a necessary step in production. A lot of companies make use of hot air dryers where the heat is gained by burning natural gas. A novel method is to use a heat pump assisted drying systems...

Ferrofluid bearings provide a cheap and passive alternative to contactless bearings such as magnetic bearings and fluid bearings. The absence of stick-slip and the low viscous friction make them interesting for high precision applications. Despite the theoretical models available in literature, the number of design rules for ferrofluid bearings...

An active fluid heat exchanger can be controlled effectively using Peltier elements to condition the temperature of the fluid flowing through the heat exchanger. The thermal resistance of the heat exchanger can be reduced to increase the speed of controlling the fluid's temperature. Topology optimization is used in this study to find the...

The aortic valve is a valve made of three thin flexible leaflets which open and close in order to allow the unidirectional passage of blood from the left ventricle to the aorta. Because of this repetitive motion at each cycle, the valve is constantly exposed to large variations of pressure and hemodynamic forces. Deterioration in its peculiar...
