The growing global population and heightened concern for climate change leads to increased interest in utilizing microbial fermentations to replace polluting production processes for e.g., plastics, fuels, and animal proteins. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a valuable tool for accelerating the scale-up and optimization of large-scale...

Structural joints influence the design strength, material requirement of a structure. Structural joints experience damping dissipation due to friction damping or hysteresis damping. Damping is often used for reducing the vibrations in a structure. However, large amount of energy dissipation leads to deterioration of the material used for...

Fresh water is an essential resource for life. Yet, overexploitation of water resources, rainfall shortages, and a decrease in water quality by pollution increase water scarcity worldwide. Since agricultural production consumes about 70% of the available fresh water resources, it is particularly vulnerable for water scarcity. Therefore, this...

An analytical study of an energy-based approach to damping of a clamped timber column in free vibration under axial, lateral and torsional loading conditions was conducted. Backed by experiments it was confirmed that an energy-based approach, as proposed by Sánchez Gómez (2018), could describe the energy dissipation in a laterally vibrating...

This research is conducted in collaboration with the Sophia Children's Hospital (SCH). The hospital wants to provide their patients with more detailed information about when a patient is approximately scheduled to have a surgery. The first step is to create a model which optimises the operation room (OR) schedule and indicates when different...

The exclusive and excessive use of long-distance road transportation is not suitable way to reduce the negative environmental impacts of logistics systems. Intermodal transport, combining road with other transport modes, has the potential to reduce both operating costs and carbon footprints. One of the reasons for the low share of intermodal...

BACKGROUND: Epichlorohydrin (ECH) production is an important industrial process, owing to its importance in windmill blade manufacture, but it suffers from several drawbacks such as high energy use, large wastewater production and low atom efficiency. This original study investigates a novel chlorohydrin-free technology with an enhanced...

This paper presents a new 2-step SAR ADC architecture for image sensors in machine vision applications. This structure effectively improves the structural problems of the image sensor caused by the area occupied by the ADC, such as linearity and temporal noise performance. In this work, we designed a two-step SAR ADC using a 6-bit SAR ADC and...

In traditional end plate column splices, bolts are placed double symmetrically on the four sides of square hollow sections (SHS). In order to reduce the required gap between the façade and the column, the end plate could be flushed on one or two sides of SHS for the column along the façade or at the corner of a building, respectively. However...

Container glass is omnipresent and reuse can be observed all around the world. It can even be reused for the construction of structural components for buildings of which several examples exist around the world. However, research on the reuse of glass for structural components seems lacking. Therefore, this paper investigates the potential of...

The option to have an WEC integrated breakwater at the port of Genoa ensures that the port will protect the area from harsh incoming waves, but also contribute towards the port decarbonization. However, for the solution to be viable, a first layer analysis must estimate its profitability. This works uses a long-term high fidelity wave numerical...

In large-scale syngas fermentation, strong gradients in dissolved gas (CO, H<sub>2</sub>) concentrations are very likely to occur due to locally varying mass transfer and convection rates. Using Euler-Lagrangian CFD simulations, we analyzed these gradients in an industrial-scale external-loop gas-lift reactor (EL-GLR) for a wide range of...

Very little research has been done on the potential use of glass bottles in a structural system. Knowledge gathered from past projects showed that individuals or communities usually tend to create structures with glass bottles with a cementitious material, which is usually concrete or mortar. Under vertical compressive loading, the corresponding...

Tabular data synthesis is a promising approach to circumvent strict regulations on data privacy. Although the state-of-the-art tabular data synthesizers, e.g., table-GAN, CTGAN, TVAE, and CTAB-GAN, are effective at generating synthetic tabular data, they are sensitive to column permutations of input data. In this work, we conduct an impact and...

To every rise and fall of nations, crowds were vital. They could appear in the form of armies defending their motherlands or revolutionaries rewriting the courses of history, but they are also vital to political baiting beloved by every ‘big guy’. Crowds also bring in life to the masses; it is the various social spectacles that we (occasionally)...

The purpose of this report is to design a wave energy converter, in particular a U-oscillating water column (U-OWC), to maximize energy conversion in the low wave energy environment of Gwadar, Pakistan. At present Pakistan’s 1000km coastline is largely undeveloped and the county is devoid of any wave energy harnessing devices or studies. However...

The added drag on a buoyant body traveling in a solid-body rotation flow has been rigorously studied over the last century with G.I. Taylor being the first one to describe it in 1922, a hundred years ago. A recent publication by Duinmeijer (2021) investigated the capacity of free-surface vortices to transport solids as a practical application to...
