Though the commercialisation of nanotechnology began only 30 years ago, it has developed into one of the fastest growing industries in terms of research and design, with an unlimited amount of possibilities that will transform industries from how we know them today. The advancement of nanotechnology relies on the actual production, control...

Trace metals appear in estuarine systems in two forms: dissolved and particulate.
Describing the partitioning between these two forms is done by a coefficient, K_d, which relies on a number of environmental parameters, such as the salinity of the water and the seasonally dependent biological activity. Although this coefficient is known to...

Even though negative effects on the use of crude oil have surfaced over the past years, our energy matrix still largely relies on this energy source. The production of oil, therefore, plays an important role in our society. Unfortunately, the process of oil production is highly uncertain. There are uncertainties associated on the production...

Predicting the behavior of turbulent flows and how thermochemical properties develop such as temperature, enthalpy or concentrations is an import aspect in various fields. However, numerical calculations have a high time complexity. Therefore, models were constructed to approximate these flows. This thesis focuses on using probability density...

The growing amount of plastic pollution in the oceans is worldwide a huge problem. There is an increasing amount of projects that try to clean up this pollution. To remove the pollution efficiently, it is useful to know how plastic litter moves, degrades and sinks. Models are being developed that can describe what happens with plastic in the...

This research presents a data-driven model for the magnetic signature of an object, consisting of linearly reacting isotropicmaterial. From magnetostatics mathematical-physical model is derived for the linear behaviour of the induced magnetization. Data-driven updates for the permanent magnetization are computed from comparisons of the computed...

Hydrothermal flames have become a very important field of study, especially for supercritical water oxidation. In supercritical water oxidation hazardous, toxic or non-biodegradable aqueous organic waste water streams can be efficiently destructed. Supercritical water oxidation takes place in a aqueous environment above the supercritical point....

This thesis describes how the simple random walk particle model can be extended to account for sand deposition and suspension, and for particle interaction: clumping together and falling apart. The extended models are analyzed, and the corresponding partial differential equations are derived. These equations are compared to the currently used...

It has become clear that the global energy system needs to shift away from fossil fuels towards clean, renewable energy sources. Experience in the past decades has shown that at-plate solar heat panels can play a role in the energy system of the future, in particular in solar collector fields for district heat generation. This thesis concerns...

There is an increasing amount of attention for the application of model predictive control (MPC) for the optimal control of multi-purpose multi-reservoir systems (Tian et al. (2015), Raso (2013)). A major advantage of MPC is that multi-variate system dynamics and constraints of the control problem can be explicitly incorporated in the method....

The specific issue researched in this thesis is correcting some inaccuracies that occur when the robot is polishing
certain shapes. The biggest challenge is to mathematically describe this phenomenon in order to find
an appropriate correction. Since there are a lot of influences in the process (friction, movement, impact, degrees
of...
