The world is witnessing unprecedented climate changes, which have worsened over the past couple of years. Despite significant progress in renewable energy, achieving a reduction of global warming remains challenging. Renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and hydroelectric technologies offer promising solutions, but challenges persist due to...

In this thesis, the acoustic noise emitted by a small electric outrunner motor, such as the ones commonly used in unmanned areal vehicles, is analyzed using a multiphysics simulation based on the finite element method. The simulation covers the electromagnetic, mechanical and acoustic domain. The electromagnetic simulation is performed in the 2D...

The Netherlands is a country that is being threatened by water, both from the rivers and from the sea. The Dutch have built dikes to keep their lands from inundation. To ensure the strength and stability of these dikes, they are being assessed on the basis of several failure mechanisms. One of these failure mechanisms is...

In this work, a new finite element modelling (FEM) approach is followed to model spatiotemporally resolved water uptake in organic coatings. To this aim, we start from a physical model, where not only Fickian diffusion of water is taken into account but also the adsorption/desorption reaction of water on the polymer matrix. Starting from a...

Offshore pipelines are considered the arteries of the offshore oil and gas industry and transport hydrocarbon products as well as other fluids. During the installation process of an offshore pipeline, the pipeline is most often located in a trench and covered with backfill material. The burial of the pipeline ensures onbottom stability as well...

Interference of light can be used to determine the concentration of a gas, called gas sensing. The absorption of the light by the gas molecules is measured based on the phase change of the light. In this report, a hollow core photonic crystal fiber is treated. The gas sample is inserted into the hollow core. Photonic crystal fibers possess the...

With the integration of solar panels in urban areas, where shading is a common issue, it is desired to realize more shade-resilient designs. A DC-DC boost converter is an electronic device that can be used for maximum power point tracking (MPPT). When implementing MPPT at sub-module level, the shade resilience of the module can be increased....

Industrial emissions are discussed worldwide for their adverse effects on the global climate change. Nitric oxide (NOx) emissions are harmful among the various flue gases emitted in the atmosphere. There are multiple routes of formation of NOx in industry. The formation of NOx due to local overheating in fuel lean conditions is the most common...

In the port of Ostend a discharge sluice is going to be constructed as part of an enforced dike ring. The proposed location of this discharge sluice is close to an already existing marina, the Royal Yachtclub Oostende (RYCO), and hindrance is expected regarding the outflow of the sluice in marina direction. When designing the sluice, an optimal...

Aluchemie produces anodes for the Aluminium industry and is the largest stand-alone anode factory in the world. Anode baking process The anode baking process is one of the crucial steps in the production of anodes for the aluminium industry. It improves the strength, conductivity of the anode and reduces reactivity during electrolysis. Efficient...

Electrochemical reduction of CO2 using renewable energy sources is one of the promising avenues to pursue towards mitigating the emissions of the notorious CO2. However, the CO2 electrolysis in aqueous systems, due to the low solubility of CO2, are severely limited by mass transfer. State of the art review shows that a significant amount of the...

Efficient combustion processes are indispensable in limiting the temperature increase to 1.5 deg C as set by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) before 2030 to curtail the effects of global warming. As for the emissions, the main task lies in controlling the air-fuel ratio in the lean regime as to control the emissions of NOx since...

The presence of organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) has caused increasing contamination of aquatic systems. In recent years, the selective adsorption of target OMPs by zeolites have been proved efficient for OMP removal. For the potential application of zeolites in the wastewater treatment plants, zeolite granules are preferably used in order to...

In the transmission and distribution network of the future, there is expected to be a mix of both Alternating Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC). In the high voltage division owing to technical and economic aspects, there is a wider use of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) instead of High Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC). However, when...

In the last few years organ-on-chip (OoC) has been emerging as a new method for more reliable research to screen the effects of new drugs on the body. This is a novel technology mimicking the in vivo environment of tissue cells, making it a more suitable candidate for experimentation than traditional 2D cell cultures. However, in order to ensure...

In mathematical biology, a morphoelastic model, which combines elasticity and growth, has been used for, e.g., wound healing and tumour growth modelling. Here, it is used to model the growth of an embryo. In order to do so, a growth curve from literature has been fitted to a morphoelastic model which has been extended with a PDE for the...

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...

Increase in demand for electric power and renewable sources of energy drives the need for more transmission & distribution capacity. When using DC, as RMS and peak voltage are the same, transferring more power can be economical but at the same time erecting new transmission lines is often associated with demanding approval procedures,...

The freeze plug is a key safety component of the molten salt fast reactor (MSFR), one of six next-generation nuclear reactor technologies being developed under the Generation IV International Forum (GIF). It should be designed to melt if an accident occurs, allowing the MSFR to drain before it incurs structural damage.<br/>Two freeze plug...
