In today’s scenario due to rapid urbanisation there has been a shift of population from rural to urban areas especially in developing countries in search of better opportunities. This has lead to unprecedented growth of cities leading to various urbanisation problems. One of the main problems that comes across in urban areas is the increased...

Numerical models are paramount in describing the complex physical world around us. They are often based on non-linear functions, which have to be solved in order to run a simulation. The first goal of this thesis is to compare the Jacobian-free Newton-Krylov method against the regular Newton-Raphson method for solving non-linear equations. When...

In this project, quantum cloning machines are analyzed that take in N quantum systems in the same unknown pure state and output M quantum systems with M > N, such that the output best resembles the ideal, but impossible output of an M-fold tensor product of the pure input state. The proof of Keyl and Werner is reviewed in which a unique...

This Bachelor thesis is on Covariant Emergent Gravity (CEG): a covariant formulation by Sabine Hossenfelder of the ideas of Erik Verlinde on gravity as an emergent force. In this work, the ideas of Erik Verlinde are presented as well as the field equations of CEG. The aim of this thesis is to find experimentally verifiable results for CEG. From...

In this research, known theory and methods for electric networks are translated and applied to gas transport networks.<br/><br/>The networks are represented by directed graphs with their corresponding incidence matrices. The theory about these is extensively discussed in addition to their relevance to Kirchoff's Circuit Laws.<br/><br/>Several...

In solving two-phase flows, the location of the interface between the phases is necessary to handle interface jump conditions when solving the Navier-Stokes equation. Current interface capturing and advection methods, however, suffer from various issues. The level set method uses the signed distance to the interface and the interface being the...

Currently there are no efficient quantum algorithms for the addition of real-valued numbers. In classical computers addition is performed by using barrel shifters, a concept proven to be very inefficient as a quantum circuit due to its many garbage outputs when the barrel shifter is made reversible. This thesis aims to design a quantum algorithm...

The Wanda software package developed by Deltares can used for simulating both steady state and transient fluid flow in pipeline systems. Steady state simulations are used for initial system design and transient flow simulations are used for doing water hammer analysis in pipeline systems. For both types of simulations a system consisting of both...

The material point method (MPM) is a numerical method for simulating ground deformations, that combinesthe benefits of a fixed grid with movingmaterial points, which carry the history dependent information of thecontinuum. During each time step, this information is projected to the grid, on which the equations of motionare solved and a...

The TU Delft and the LUMC are creating a low-field MRI scanner to use in third world countries. This type of MRI scanner has many advantages, but a downside is the amount of noise in the obtained images. A way to reduce noise is diffusion filtering. This thesis discusses the theory of some linear and nonlinear diffusion filtering methods and...

The coarse grid of numerical weather prediction and climate models requires parametrization models to resolve atmospheric processes that are smaller than the grid size. For parametrization development, these processes are simulated by a high resolution model. At the Royal Netherlands Meteorological<br/>Institute, the Dutch Atmospheric Large-Eddy...

Based on incident characteristics and quality of loop data and floating car data, a new incident detection algorithm is designed based on floating car data. This new algorithm can detect incidents on lane level by comparing the number of lane changes for a situation without an incident with a situation with a possible incident. Floating car data...

The current research aims to numerically predict the performance characteristics of the Oryon Water Mill. The simulation mechanism to be developed, begins at the structural solver part of a partitioned FSI solver, upon which the unique functional characteristics of the turbine are embedded. The modelling is carried out to account for the turbine...

This research investigates the question how the choice of scenarios and metrics influences the calibration of pedestrian simulation models. By calibrating a pedestrian model using different combinations of scenarios and metrics and comparing the results it was concluded that it matters what scenarios and metrics are included during the...

Since the 1950s, numerical models are widely used in reservoir simulators to predict and optimize oil recovery from petroleum reservoirs. Commercial simulators typically combine multiphase porous media flow models with a separate module for the transport of tracers. By decoupling flow and transport, the transport equation can be solved using a...

Models of kites with inflatable support structures that are both fast and accurate can accelerate the development of airborne wind energy systems. The fast particle system approach has not yet been used to model inflatable beam structures. The goal of this research is to investigate if the bending behaviour of inflatable beams can be modelled...
