Hasan, Asif Manzoor (author)
Over the past decades, engineers have focused on a common goal - to reduce emissions by making industrial processes more efficient and by utilizing renewable energy sources. One possibility to reach this goal can be achieved by employing processes with non-ideal fluids, such as fluids at supercritical conditions in refrigeration, heat pump...

This thesis aims to find out whether electrokinetic transport of a calcium chloride solution can be controlled by adding sodium ions by performing molecular dynamics simulations. The idea that electrokinetic transport control is a possibility originates from research that found that charge inversion is reduced when monovalent ions are added to a...

In professional swimming, a fraction of second can determine whether a competitor will obtain a place on the podium. Swimming techniques have been analysed for decades to increase and optimize performance in order to win medals in the biggest competitions. The arms and the hands play a major role in the forward propulsion generated by a swimmer,...

The interfacial tension is a fundamental property of liquid-liquid systems and governs the mixing potential of two immiscible fluids. For two fluids to form a stable mixture, their interfacial tension needs to be very low. Applications of systems with a low interfacial tension find a plethora of applications: for example, in the food industry,...

Multiphase flows are found in abundant natural phenomena and industrial processes. In particular, pipe flows are widely popular in industries involving chemical processing, dredging, and oil transport to name a few. Particle laden flows are often observed in applications like dredging, sediment, and slurry transport through pipes, etc. Therefore...

Force field is widely used to model the potential energy in atomistic simulation systems. Despite force fields have a concise mathematical form, a good set of force field parameters usually requires extra care of calibration. Besides, numerous ionic force field parameters are reported from various sources as researchers have specific target...

The dwindling of natural resources, mainly fossil fuels, and the alarming increase in the global average temperatures, are the biggest concerns of the engineering and scientific community of 21st century. Studies have found that known reserves of oil and natural gas will last another 50 years. Coal will last another 110 years, which points...

Flat plate heat exchangers are widely used in industrial and domestic applications. Industrial plate type heat exchangers generally operate in the turbulent flow regime. Although, increase in flow speeds leads to higher transport of heat, it also causes a rise in the pressure loss which is undesirable. Therefore, to combat the problem of high...

The increase of the average world temperature, as a result of greenhouse gasses, is one of the greatest challenges the world is currently facing and will be facing in the future. One of the many efforts to reduce the increase of carbon dioxide, is to decarbonize the gas network by replacing natural gas with renewable gasses like green gas. Since...

A tip-vortex in the wake of a finite length lift generating surface has a low pressure region near the axis of the tip-vortex. This low pressure region can trigger tip-vortex cavitation especially in ship propellers which has adverse effects by causing vibration and underwater noise production. One way of minimising the tip-vortex cavitation is...

Multi-phase flows are ubiquitous in nature and in everyday life surrounding us, impacting us in almost all possible ways. The presence of particles in a flow can change the flow behaviour in an unpredictable manner. The simplest example of a particle-laden flow, that one can think of, is the settling of a single sphere under gravity in a...

Salt intrusion through sea locks causes the mixing of fresh and salt water due to a gravity current. This process may occur gradually over tens of kilometers and affects the required quality of the inland water. A bubble screen alongside the locks is one of the available mitigating measures for this undesired phenomenon. However, current...

Zero Emission Fuels (ZEF B.V.) is a start-up working to build a sustainable methanol micro-plant. Carbon dioxide and water are obtained from atmosphere. Hydrogen is obtained from captured water through alkaline electrolysis and the hydrogen is used for methanol production. The alkaline electrolyser should run at 50 bar and 90°C with 30% KOH as...

Renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar (PV) parks, are rapidly being built to replace fossil fuel based energy sources. The major drawback of electricity production from renewable sources is that they are intermittent and therefore lead to amismatch between the supply and the demand of energy. Energy storage in the form of hydrogen...

Sijtsma, Lennard (author)
In the Netherlands, wind power has the highest potential for future development compared to alternatives such as solar PV and biomass. The intermittent nature of the wind power resource calls for novel approaches to supply and demand management, as well as power quality assurance. Energy storage technologies allow for the separation between...

The vehicle industry is increasingly exploring emission-free mobility. Transforming the mobility sector to zero-emission vehicles that consume renewable and low carbon fuels is necessary to reduce the impacts on climate change. Hydrogen powered electric vehicles, or Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs), could make a significant contribution to...

The Beam Dump Facility (BDF) is a new fixed target facility proposed to be installed in the North Area of CERN. Currently in its design phase, the BDF is aimed at the Search for Hidden Particles (SHiP) experiment, which purpose is to investigate the origin of dark matter and other lightly interacting particles. The BDF target/dump sits at the...
