Kidney stones may be uncommon is certain parts of the world. On the other hand, considering the percentage of cases in the western world, one can say it is worrisome. Anyone can have kidney stones, which may be easily passed out of the kidney through the urine. It only becomes a cause for concern when the stones grow beyond a certain size. They...

The idea of using hydrogen as a medium for storing excess renewable energy is gathering momentum but to deliver, several technological advances are required. One of the main challenges is boundary layer flame flashback (BLF) as a key operability issue for low NO<sub>x</sub> premixed combustion of hydrogen-enriched fuels; thus design of tools to...

Teleoperated semi-autonomous care robots aim to alleviate work pressure from care workers. Unlike many traditional stiff position-controlled robots, the care robot is operating in a shared environment with humans that is often unpredictable and unknown. Especially when dealing with tasks that involve contact with the environment, modulation of...

Although traditional open surgery is still a very common and popular medical procedure, the advantages Minimally Invasive Surgery can bring are inducing a shift towards these types of operations where possible. This creates a need for new and dedicated equipment, such as endoscopes (for vision), morcellators (for tissue excision), catheters (for...

Australia has a high potential for production of renewable energy, such as wind and solar. Due to the stochastic operating conditions, excessively produced energy can be used to produce hydrogen by electrolysis to store the energy, known as power-to-gas. This hydrogen can be injected into the existing natural gas pipeline network, providing both...

Flameless combustion, or MILD combustion is a technology that enables stable combustion with high efficiency while maintaining very low NOx and soot emissions. It is characterized by uniform heat flux and can be achieved when fuel and preheated oxidant jets are mixed into a strong recirculating flow. It is a complex process which combines...

Tooth removal is one of the most performed surgical procedures worldwide. Despite the high amount of tooth removal procedures carried out each year, scientific understanding of these procedures is not present. Knowledge of force and torque behaviour is limited and knowledge about movements has never been subject to scientific research before....

In recent years, an increasing amount of research projects contributed to the development of flapping-wing-micro-aerial-vehicles (FWMAV) that can fly and perform hovering flight in confined spaces. However, scaling laws have a negative influence on the aerodynamic efficiency and actuator efficiency. Consequently, FWMAVs suffer from very limited...

The purpose of this study was to determine whether a change of an accuracy restriction (AR) leads to a change in the separation time between the peak rotational velocities of the pelvis and the trunk during a pitching motion, while the ball velocity is kept constant. The peak rotational velocities of the pelvis, trunk, the separation time and...

The objective of this thesis is to show that warping can be used in a thin-walled beam to create a suitable replacement for a classical differential mechanism. This normally negated deformation of the cross section can be used to create an inverse transmission mechanism, used to create a monolithic and simple alternative to a classic...

Dredging is an energy-intensive operation and, due to the nature of the process, there are large and rapid fluctuations in the power requirement. With the signing of the Paris Agreement, implementation of IMO 2020 and expansion of ECAs, the external pressures for the reduction of different emissions(CO2, SO<sub>x</sub>, PM, and/or NO<sub>x</sub>...

The demand for using thin-walled composite structures for instance, in aircraft and ships are rising in the industry. These structures contain material interfaces, and at these interfaces, the structure exhibits non-smooth field behavior which is known as weak discontinuity. It is essential to study the effects of such discontinuities on the...

In baseball, pitchers have a high rate of throwing arm injury, which could lead to disability and less training time. This paper aims at investigating whether upcoming injuries of youth baseball pitchers can be detected before the athlete experiences injury symptoms. A total of 118 elite youth baseball pitchers from the Dutch national baseball...

Large quantities of heat stored in geothermal aquifers can be of interest to satisfy above-ground heating demands. With the use of heatpipes, placed into the aquifers, heat may be passively extracted. Vertical two-phase thermosiphons are considered in this study. As a result of a local increase in the saturation temperature in liquid pools, heat...

As systems become more lightweight, to satisfy inertia and size requirements, vibration becomes a prominent factor in their dynamics. This vibration is undesirable and various suppression methods exist such as passive, semi-active, and active. In this thesis, active control methods are explored for this purpose. The present technology utilizes...

Separation of particles from suspensions has been an integral part of many industrial, chemical and biological processes. Traditional methods such as sieving, flocculation, centrifugation etc. have many demerits. This has lead to an interest in unconventional separation methods that use physical properties of the particles. Acoustophoresis is...

The steel making industry is highly energy intensive and a great contributor of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It generated between 7% and 9% of direct emissions from the global use of fossil fuels in 2017 [1]. Gas emissions in an integrated steel mill (ISM) arise mainly from three streams: coke oven gas (COG), blast furnace gas (BFG) and basic...

Due to growing awareness and rising concern over the climate change impact, the demand for renewable energy has been increasing. In the coming decades, biomass is expected to play a crucial role as it is one of the most plentiful and well-utilized renewable resources in the world. Biomass can be sustainably converted to solid/liquid/gaseous...

Electrochemical Promotion of Catalysis (EPOC) is a method for enhancing a catalytic reaction by modifying the surface properties of the catalyst through the application of a small amount of current or interfacial potential. It can also be used to enhance the selectivity of heterogenous catalytic reactions. It was first discovered by M. Stoukides...

Haptic feedback from the steering wheel is one of the most important cues for driver to vehicle interaction. The right feedback is provided by ensuring that the haptic controller provides the required steering feel. Steering feel assessment and design is divided into a subjective and objective approach. The subjective approach entails...
