Steel components can exhibit premature and low-ductility creep fracture, when exposed to high temperatures for long times. The failure arises from the formation, growth and coalescence of ultra-fine cracks and cavities. Self healing of damage is a promising new approach to enhance the lifetime of the steel components, in particular for...

Di Lemma, F.G. (author)
The research described in this thesis aims at improving the evaluation of the radiaoctive aerosol release from different Radiological Dispersion Events (RDE's), such as accidents and sabotage involving radioactive and nuclear materials. These studies help in a better assessment of the source term as input for atmospheric dispersion predictions,...

Böhler, R. (author)
The safety of nuclear power plants is one of the major issues in nuclear materials research. In this context, this PhD thesis presents an original experimental investigation of melting behaviour of several refractory nuclear materials, whose phase diagrams are often still uncertain at temperatures exceeding 2500 K. The physicochemical properties...

Nowadays, tomographic imaging techniques are inseparable from modern medical practice as they allow non-invasive 3-dimensional visualization of the interior of a patient in order to e.g. establish a medical diagnosis, or to monitor disease progression and the effects of disease treatment. Next to clinical use, tomographic imaging techniques are...

Presently large efforts are conducted in Munich towards the development of proton beams for bio-medical applications, generated via the technique of particle acceleration from high-power, short-pulse lasers. While so far mostly offline diagnostics tools are used in this context, we aim at developing a reliable and accurate online range...

Manousaka, E. (author)
The Green Village envisions a sustainable, energy autarkic environment realized at the heart of the TU Delft campus. This environment will implement a DC electricity infrastructure with the main voltage level inside the buildings, being 380V. This innovative power system requires the development of new power electronics that can be used to such...

Grzech, A. (author)
In this thesis representatives of two different types of materials for potential hydrogen storage application are presented. Usage of either nanoporous materials or metal hydrides has both operational advantages and disadvantages. A main objective of this thesis is to characterize the hydrogen storage mechanism of selected Metal-Organic...

Quarati, F.G.A. (author)
LaBr3 has been developed into large volume scintillator detectors within an ESA and TU Delft programme during this thesis work. The programme, which aimed at the space applications of LaBr3, also led to extensive experiments within a collaborative framework which included representatives for all the development aspects, i.e., from crystal...

In the Weichselian, the Lower Rhine in the Dutch-German border region has used three courses, dissecting ice-marginal topography inherited from the Saalian. In the Late Weichselian, the three courses functioned simultaneously, with the central one gaining importance and the outer ones abandoning. This study aims to reconstruct the fluvial...
