Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are important air pollutants and play a crucial role in climate change. NOx emissions are important for chemical transport models to simulate and forecast air quality. Up-to-date emission information also helps policymakers to mitigate air pollution. In this thesis, we have focused on providing better NOx emission estimates...

The aim of this research is to explore the potential advantages of SPAD imagers used in microscopy. An ideal microscopy detector requires high sensitivity (high quantum efficiency QE or photon detection probability PDP), photon counting operation, low noise (dark current or dark count rate), timing resolution in the order of 100 ps, frame rate...

This pioneering research focuses on Biomimetic Interactive Architecture using “Computation”, “Embodiment”, and “Biology” to generate an intimate embodied convergence to propose a novel rule-based design framework for creating organic architectures composed of swarm-based intelligent components. Furthermore, the research boldly claims that...

Over the past decades, many technological advances have unlocked new opportunities to boost efficiency in the oil and gas industry (e.g., complex well drilling, injection of advanced chemicals, sophisticated instrumentation). The real engineering challenge is to apply these technologies in the best possible way for each particular case. This...

This thesis studies automated methods of surface water detection from satellite imagery. Multiple existing methods are explored, discussed, and some new algorithms are introduced to allowvery accurate detection of surface water and surfacewater changes. Themethods range in applicability from the local level to global, and from detecting high...

Biomass is a sustainable biofuel as long as it does not compete with food and feed production. Gasification is a versatile technology that produces a gas which can be converted into various high value products. Torrefaction is a technology that converts biomass to a more coal alike product with upgraded properties. As it was confirmed that...

Interacting electrons on material lattices can build up strong quantum correlations, which in turn can lead to the emergence of a wide range of novel and potentially useful magnetic and electronic material properties. Our understanding of this physics, however, is severely limited by the exponential growth in complexity with system size, which...

The safety level of a dike is expressed in terms of risk. Risk is defined as the product of the probability of inundation of a polder (after failure of a dike) and the expected damage (casualties, economic damage and damage to the infrastructure) caused by inundation. The rate of inundation determines the amount of casualties and depends heavily...

This thesis is a contribution to a deeper understanding of how information propagates and what this process entails. At its very core is the concept of the network: a collection of nodes and links, which describes the structure of the systems under investigation. The network is a mathematical model which allows to focus on a very fundamental...

Fluids above the critical point are widely used in industry. Chemical, pharmaceutical, food industry and energy production are some examples. In the energy production sector they are mainly used as cooling fluids, because they allow to increase the thermal efficiency of the power plants. However, the fundamentals of their heat transfer behavior...

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) can not only image the topography of surfaces at atomic resolution, but can also measure accurately the different interaction forces, like repulsive, adhesive and lateral existing between an AFM tip and the sample surface. Based on AFM, various extended techniques have been developed such as colloidal probe AFM,...

Partial discharge (PD) measurements are an effective tool for insulation assessment of high-voltage (HV) equipment widely used in both HV laboratories and in field tests. This paper presents the design of a test platform for electrical detection of partial discharges that contribute to the understanding of the phenomena. The test set-up...

As we realize that we spend most of our time in increasingly complex indoor environments, applications to assist indoor activities (e.g. guidance) have gained a lot of attention in the recent years. The advances in ubiquitous computing made possible the development of several spatial models intending to support context-aware and fine-grained...

Evolutionary engineering, which uses laboratory evolution to select for industrially relevant traits, is a popular strategy in the development of high-performing yeast strains for industrial production of fuels and chemicals. By integrating whole-genome sequencing, bioinformatics, classical genetics and genome-editing techniques, evolutionary...

We present and evaluate a two-phase model for Eulerian large-eddy simulations (LES) of liquid-fuel injection and mixing at high pressure. The model is based on cubic equations of state and vapor-liquid equilibrium calculations and can represent the coexistence of supercritical states and multi-component subcritical two-phase states via a...

The operating principle of condensing boilers is based on exploiting heat from flue gases to pre-heat cold water at the inlet of the boiler: by condensing into liquid form, flue gases recover their latent heat of vaporization, leading to 10–12% increased efficiency with respect to traditional boilers. However, monitoring the energy efficiency of...
