In this study a one-dimensional, steady-state, non-isothermal numerical model was developed in order to investigate the transport phenomena occurring in a membrane electrode assembly for fuel cell applications and to provide an insight on the effects of the hydrogen crossover. The hydrogen that permeates through the membrane is consumed without...

Sustainable innovation is essential for companies to stay in competition. The first phase of sustainable innovation is idea generation. Ideas for improvement can come from all employees, among whom employees that operate machines. The problem is that companies that strive for sustainable innovation often do not use the potential of their...

Energy storage plays a key role in the transit from fossil fuels, as main energy source, to sustainable ones. In this work, it is tried to find an electrode material which can eventually be used in potentially cheap, large scale rechargeable sodium-ion batteries. This application would ideally be made of abundant, safe and environmental friendly...

Equivalent cross sections used in few-group nodal diffusion calculations are ob- tained through homogenization of fossile unit cells under infinite medium con- ditions. Reference reaction rates can be accurately reproduced in nodal calcu- lations provided that these unit cells are surrounded by cells of the same type. Large heterogeneities,...

In the field of nanotechnology, the need to develop a green process for the production of nanoparticles brought into light the concept of nanoparticle aerosol generation. A novel method to produce an aerosol by synthesizing nanoparticles of conductive material having a potential to be scaled up is by spark ablation. Nanosized particulate...

To address the energy demand of the growing world population, the transition from polluting exhaustible energy sources to clean inexhaustible energy sources is imminent. Solar energy is one of the energy sources that has been studied extensively. In particular, the application of solar energy in photoelectrochemical water splitting has gained...

In this report, we derive some tools that can be used to construct semi-analytical solution for the electromagnetic field of a dipole in an arbitrary multilayer system. The proposed methods consist of a recursive determination of electric fields -- using the mathematical principle behind a Fabry-Perot interferometer -- and two different...

Pre-operative planning aids clinicians by providing insight into patient-specific problems before surgery is performed. For treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), a range of motion (ROM) simulation is used, based on collision detection on segmented CT or MRI-data. Imaging data of the femur is often incomplete, due to the fact that...

This thesis is part of the research on the thermodynamic properties of thorium salt and aims to provide a C++11 code to simulate fuel salt flow at various temperatures around a settling sphere and inside a container. This thesis should form the basis of a C++11 implementation on fuel salt flow in the Molten Salt Fast Reactor using the Lattice...

We develop a computational method that can efficiently simulate Landau levels in quantum heterostructures, by reducing the problems dimensionality. We then apply this to a GaSb/InAs/AlSb broken gap quantum well in the trivial and inverted regimes. This heterostructure can be tuned into a 2DTI phase, and has possible applications in topological...

The resource theory approach is a recently developed framework used in the study of thermodynamics for finite sized quantum systems. A simple way to describe how a quantum system evolves under energy-preserving unitaries while interacting with thermal reservoirs, has been formulated in the framework of thermal operations. Despite the conceptual...

The effect of new dopants on the luminescence properties of two types of scintillator crystals have been investigated. First, the luminescence properties of sodium iodine (NaI) crystals doped with thallium (Tl) and co-doped with Sulpher (S) and selenium (Se) were determined. Tl occupies cation sites whereas S and Se are supposed to occupy anion...

Magnetic Drug Targeting could be used to cure atherosclerosis in the Carotid Artery. The idea of this method is that magnetized drug particles are added to the blood in the artery while applying a magnetic field at the location where the drugs is desired to enter the tissue. Therefore the concentration increases at the location of the...

Synthesis gas, or syngas, is among the most common products of biomass gasification and pyrolysis process. Syngas is produced by various fuels such as coal, biomass and any other hydrocarbon material. The principal use of syngas is in gas turbines as a fuel. It may also be used as the constructive material in other applications, such as methanol...

The Kernel Polynomial Method (KPM) is a method to approximate any function as a polynomial of finite order. In this research the KPM will be used to approximate the density of states and expectation values of physical observables in a tight binding system. To be able to use the KPM a tight binding Hamiltonian is obtained by using the python...

Cogenra company has created a low concentration PV/Thermal system that produces both thermal energy and electricity simultaneously, mainly for commercial and industrial applications. The realization of a system that combines photovoltaic modules, solar thermal collectors and concentrating mirrors makes it a complicated system to study. So far,...

The well-known volatility of petroleum price and, subsequently, of its derived products has long time urged the attention for the discovery of alternatives to fossil oil. More recently, the dichotomy food-fuel, has redirected the research towards second generation feedstocks, in which biomass residues are included. In line with this, a...

In this study, a unique combination of concepts such as hospitality, digitalisation and responsible research and innovation is brought together in the Responsible Digital Hospitality Quality Scale. This conceptual tool is more than a website benchmark or customer satisfaction measurement tool. It measurably defines responsible digital...
