Graphene is expected to open up a world of new possibilities in the field of micro and nano sensors, due to its outstanding properties. However, graphene membranes suffer from high damping which limit their performance. The physical mechanism behind this damping is still unknown. Therefore, in this work, it is investigated how coupling between...

Structure Optimization has been an important subject with many applications for centuries. In the last sixty years, numerical optimization has facilitated large advancements in this field. One of the areas in Structure Optimization is Topology Optimization, which is used for Additive Manufacturing purposes. In this thesis we explore Static and...

Ballistic capture is a transfer method which was first applied in 1990. It allows a spacecraft to approach a target celestial body and enter a (temporary) orbit around it without requiring manoeuvres in between. Ballistic capture is a promising concept, as it is expected to be safer, cheaper, and more flexible in terms of launch windows than a...

Using an idealized width-averaged model, the influence of spring-neap cycles on the transport and trapping of suspended fine sediment in tide-dominated estuaries is investigated. To this end we introduce a multiple time scale expansion. This provides a mathematically sound argument for treating the fast ebb-flood cycle and the slow spring-neap...

The numerical simulation of brittle failure with nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA) remains a challenge due to robustness issues. These problems are attributed to the softening material behaviour and the iterative nature of the Newton-Raphson type methods used in NLFEA. However, robust numerical simulations become increasingly important,...

In the past decades, several EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery) techniques have been developed to increase the amount of oil recoverable from a reservoir. Among these techniques, polymer flooding consists in the injection of a solution of water and polymer into the reservoir, and it is performed in order to lower the mobility of injected water. A...
