Lopez Pena, L.A. (author)During the primary oil recovery, wells are drilled into the reservoir, and due to natural driving forces, the oil flows to the surface through these production wells. Unfortunately, the production of oil in this first stage is typically between only five and ten percent of the oil in place in the reservoir. In the secondary oil recovery some...doctoral thesis 2019

Lukyanov, A. (author)N many fields of science and engineering, such as fluid or structural mechanics, and nanotechnology, dynamical systems at different scale need to be simulated, optimized or controlled. They are often described by discretizations of systems of nonlinear partial differential equations yielding highdimensional discrete phase spaces. For this...doctoral thesis 2019

Diaz Cortes, G.B. (author)Simulation of flow through highly heterogeneous porous media results in large illconditioned systems of equations. In particular, solving the linearized pressure system can be especially timeconsuming. Therefore, extensive efforts to find ways to address this issue effectively are required. In this work, we introduce a PODbased deflation...doctoral thesis 2019

Baumann, M.M. (author)Seismic FullWaveform Inversion is an imaging technique to better understand the earth's subsurface. Therefore, the reflection intensity of sound waves is measured in a field experiment and is matched with the results from a computer simulation in a leastsquares sense. From a computational pointofview, but also from an economic view point,...doctoral thesis 2018

Van Wijngaardenvan Rossum, W.K. (author)Biogrout is a method to reinforce sand and gravel by the production of calcium carbonate. This calcium carbonate is produced using microorganisms that are either present in the subsoil or injected into it. The microorganisms are supplied with urea and calcium. Subsequently, they catalyse the hydrolysis of urea, by which carbonate is formed. In...doctoral thesis 2016

Qiu, Y. (author)Optimal flow control problems are important for applications in science and engineering. Solving such problems usually requires the solution of a large linear generalized saddlepoint system. This linear system is sparse and highly indefinite. In order to solve such systems using Krylov subspace methods, efficient preconditioners are necessary...doctoral thesis 2015

Gupta, R. (author)In this work we study the implementations of deflation and preconditioning techniques for solving illconditioned linear systems using iterative methods. Solving such systems can be a timeconsuming process because of the jumps in the coefficients due to large difference in material properties. We have developed implementations of the iterative...doctoral thesis 2015

Li, X. (author)In this dissertation, we focus on exploiting superconvergence for discontinuous Galerkin methods and constructing a superconvergence extraction technique, in particular, SmoothnessIncreasing AccuracyConserving (SIAC) filtering. The SIAC filtering technique is based on the superconvergence property of discontinuous Galerkin methods and aims to...doctoral thesis 2015

Knibbe, H.P. (author)The oil and gas industry makes use of computational intensive algorithms to provide an image of the subsurface. The image is obtained by sending wave energy into the subsurface and recording the signal required for a seismic wave to reflect back to the surface from the Earth interfaces that may have different physical properties. A seismic wave...doctoral thesis 2015

Den Ouden, D. (author)Steels with higher strength and better formability are increasingly required by the automotive industry because they can provide higher safety, reduce energy consumption and thus lead to a better environmental protection. To meet these requirements, it is a sustainable effort for steel industry to develop high strength formable steels. One of...doctoral thesis 2015

Sheikh, A.H. (author)The Helmholtz equation is the simplest possible model for the wave propagation. Perhaps this is the reason, despite denying traditional iterative methods like Krylov subspace methods, Multigrids, etcetera, numerical solution of the Helmholtz equation has been an interesting and abundant problem to researchers since years. The work in this...doctoral thesis 2014

Van 't Wout, E. (author)The aim of this thesis is to design a computational method that can be used in modern stealth technology. In particular, the computational method should be capable to simulate scattering of ultrawideband radar signals for military aircraft constructed with ferromagnetic radar absorbent materials. A fullwave boundary element method has been...doctoral thesis 2013

Van WageningenKessels, F.L.M. (author)How to model and simulate traffic flow including different vehicles such as cars and trucks? This dissertation answers this question by analyzing existing models and simulation methods and by developing new ones. The new model (Fastlane) describes traffic as a continuum flow while accounting for different types of vehicles. It is reformulated in...doctoral thesis 2013

Idema, R. (author)A power system is a system that provides for the generation, transmission, and distribution of electrical energy. Power systems are considered to be the largest and most complex manmade systems. As electrical energy is vital to our society, power systems have to satisfy the highest security and reliability standards. At the same time,...doctoral thesis 2012

Ibrahim, D. (author)In this thesis, we use a more recent method to numerically solve twophase fluid flow problems. The method is developed at TNO and it is presented by Arendsen et al. in [1] for spatially homogeneous systems. We will refer to this method as the densityenthalpy method (DEM) because the densityenthalpy phase diagrams play an important role in this...doctoral thesis 2012

Jönsthövel, T.B. (author)Simulations with composite materials often involve large jumps in the coefficients of the underlying stiffness matrix. These jumps can introduce unfavorable eigenvalues in the spectrum of the stiffness matrix. We show that the rigid body modes; the translations and rotations, of the disjunct rigid bodies in the composite material correspond to...doctoral thesis 2012

Collignon, T.P. (author)This dissertation deals mainly with the design, implementation, and analysis of efficient iterative solution methods for large sparse linear systems on distributed and heterogeneous computing systems as found in Grid computing. First, a case study is performed on iteratively solving large symmetric linear systems on both a multi–cluster and a...doctoral thesis 2011
