This thesis project aims to enable Bluerise to create a 3 [MW] plant for their OTEC system. The current model and lab setup used to create insight into the systems working mechanisms are based on a Kalina cycle configuration. This method uses a working fluid mixture of water and ammonia. After evaporation, the liquid and vapor are separated and...

CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is increasing leading to global warming and thus, climate change. Moreover, current renewable technologies such as wind or solar energy only cover the electricity market. A big part of the global energy market is still based on fossil fuels and difficult to electrify. Hence, there is an urgent need to produce...

When propellers are operating near the free surface,  phenomenon called ventilation might occur. Due to insufficient immersion and high thrust loading, the propeller draws air, resulting in a reduced thrust. Reduced thrust may have consequences such as loss of propulsive power, control and steerability, and may therefore be...

Background: Patients who suffer from acetabular bone defects are often subjected to a decreased mobility and a loss of independence. To treat these bone defects, standard hemispherical acetabular implants offer in most cases the solution. However, when these defects are large, a custom triflange acetabular implant is needed. Although this type...

The increasing complexity of mechanical systems has resulted in an increased usage and dependence on data driven modelling techniques in order to obtain simple yet accurate models of these systems. Neural networks have emerged as a popular modelling choice due to their proven ability to learn complex nonlinear relationships between inputs and...

In times when there is more and more focus on environmental impact, all aspects must be taken into account. Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is easy and cheap to produce and has lots of applications because of its properties. These properties however, also make it a hard material to recycle. This paper focuses on a rich mathematical model for the...

Brake squeal is a well know problem in the bicycle industry. Most of the time brake squeal occurs due to wear of the brake components and/or in certain environmental conditions (e.g. rain and dirt). Bicycle brake squeal is often solved by trial and error. Compared to automotive industry, there is not much research done on the fundamental cause...

Energy consumption is still growing worldwide and due to the problems of global warming, sustainable developments become of more importance. Heat pumps are one of the technologies that can contribute to energy savings of industrial processes, for example by heat recovery from waste water streams. The focus of this research is to improve the...

The demand for renewable energy is growing, due to a growing awareness among people about the effect of burning fossil fuels on the environment. Governments have signed climate agreements and are obliged to decrease their level of exhaust gasses. This change in attitude regarding the environment led to an upcoming market for renewables. A...

A lot of research has been done on the behaviour of pneumatic tyres and this has led to various tyre models and a lot of measurement data. However, in the specific field of bicycle tyres, not so much measurement data is available. However, in 2013 Andrew Dressel received the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering at the University of...

This exploration study focuses on the braking behaviour of World Tour cyclists during a descent. For this study, 8 riders descended over 6 trials using a ‘sensor bike’. As part of this particular study, a novel brake sensor is developed and validated in practice. The sensor package can be transferred between bicycles, allowing each rider to use...

The phenomenon of lateral migration of neutrally buoyant rigid spheres is studied experimentally for Poiseuille Flow. The study relied on the particle migration technique to capture the distribution of particles radial position at different flow parameters. In this thesis, the varying experimental parameters are flow Reynolds number and particle...

The utilization of deep geothermal resources for combined heat and power generation in Germany has increased slowly but continuously during the last years. Due to the growing technical readiness, the focus is now shifting from the first proof of concepts to optimizing the performance of existing plants. One promising approach is the further...

Conversion coatings are generally required to enhance organic coating adhesion and corrosion resistance on galvanized steel. Until a few decades ago, chromate conversion coatings were the most common conversion coatings in the industry owing to their exceptional performance in this regard. However, the adverse effects associated with hexavalent...

Max-plus algebra is an algebra that is entirely based on the mathematical operations max(a,b) and a+b, hence the name max-plus algebra. It can be used to describe Discrete Event Systems (DES) that require scheduling, such as a printer or train network. Max-plus algebra is studied because of its interesting properties, which make some non-linear...

In the industry motion systems with electric motors are used for transporting and positioning thin flexible substrates at high throughput rates. A possible alternative actuation solution could be to apply contactless air film actuators which make use of air bearing principles. The air film actuators use a thin film of air to levitate and propel...
