Crijns, Lucas (author)This project aims to recreate intensity patterns using Fraunhofer diffraction as a means of simulation. These intensity patterns are created by phase shifting specific parts of an incoming field of light. These phase shifts are determined by a Bspline surface, which is in turn controlled by socalled control points. Only a handful of control...bachelor thesis 2021

Sigurđsson, Sigurdsson (author)In this thesis, I make a comparison of two quantum algorithms for solving systems of linear equations. The two approaches are tested using both simulations of quantum processes and simulations of noisy intermediaryscale quantum computers, i.e., NISQ. Both methods are tested on the same problems to compare sensitivity and runtime efficiency,...master thesis 2021

Veldkamp, Susan (author)Before making matrix calculations, it can be useful to decompose these matrices in some way, such as according to an LUdecomposition. This can save a lot of computing power and thus time. Several computer programs exist that can decompose matrices in multiple ways. However, this report answers the question of whether it is also possible to make...bachelor thesis 2020

Tielen, R.P.W.M. (author)The material point method (MPM) is a meshfree mixed LagrangianEulerian method which utilizes moving Lagrangian material points that store physical properties of a deforming continuum and a fixed Eulerian finite elementmesh to solve the equations of motion for individual time steps. MPM proved to be successful in simulating mechanical problems...master thesis 2016

Maljaars, J.M. (author)Hybrid particlemesh methods attempt to combine the advantages of Eulerian and Lagrangian methods: Lagrangian particles are used for the advection, whereas a Eulerian background grid is used for computing the particle interactions. Such a hybrid approach is expected to have several benefits when simulating flows involving free surfaces or...master thesis 2016

Toussaint, M.A. (author)The polytropic model to describe air expansion, has been used for years to describe the behavior of surge vessels. In this thesis the alternative to describe this behavior, the Rational Heat Transfer (RHT) equation developed by Graze (1968), is extended with an estimation of all heat terms in surge vessels. The RHT model is compared to the poly...bachelor thesis 2015
