With the increasing demand for flights, the environmental impact of aviation is on the rise. To tackle this challenge, it is necessary to look into the design of unconventional aircraft configurations and engine design improvements to improve overall fuel efficiency. The Blended Wing Body (BWB) aircraft is one of the most promising...

The transportation sector continues decarbonizing with the increasing number of Electric Vehicles (EVs) replacing gasoline and diesel cars every year. However, the integration of vast amounts of EVs introduces complexities in energy distribution and grid stability. Charge Point Operators (CPOs), positioned at the intersection of EVs and the grid...

Predicting aircraft Take-Off Weight (TOW) has been a long-sought task by aviation stakeholders, especially for operational and regulatory bodies involved in flight planning. Unfortunately, TOW being a sensitive parameter to operational trends and cost indices, aircraft operators tend to keep it confidential. In recent years, Machine Learning (ML...

The Netherlands has created a large nitrogen pollution problem in its soils, which is harming biodiversity. By intensifying and industrialized farming, by importing animal feed for dairy production and fertilizer for crop farming, too much nitrogen has accumulated in the soil. Consequently, ecological processes are disturbed due to...

Gradients in dissolved gas concentrations are expected to affect the performance of large reactors for anaerobic gas (CO, H2, CO2) fermentation. To study how these gradients, and the dissolved gas concentration level itself, influence the productivity of the desired product ethanol and the product spectrum of C. autoethanogenum, we coupled a CFD...

A semi-analytical method is presented for the design of gradient index (GRIN) flat lenses. Closed-form expressions are derived to define the refractive index distribution of the lens, for several cases: collimating lenses with on-axis feed, collimating lenses with off-axis feed, lenses converting spherical wavefronts with different...

This study characterized the morphology, high-temperature property, rheological property, adhesion, cohesion, and chemical component of asphalt binder under aqueous solutions of different pH values. Then the physicochemical properties of asphalt binder were comprehensively evaluated by the improved radar chart. The properties of asphalt...

Optical tweezers have proved to be a powerful tool with a wide range of applications. The gradient force plays a vital role in the stable optical trapping of nano-objects. The scalar method is convenient and effective for analyzing the gradient force in traditional optical trapping. However, when the third-order nonlinear effect of the nano...

This study investigates the sub-structure of IF steel in three conditions: cold rolled, statically recovered, and warm rolled. After both cold and warm rolling, the steel exhibits the typical 〈110〉//RD and 〈111〉//ND fiber textures. Considering the short-range misorientation gradient ∆θ/∆x to assess locally stored energy variations, it was...

During extreme conditions, the transport of the wave-averaged suspended sediment concentrations in the inner surf zone affects dune erosion. Although large-scale laboratory experiments have provided insight in what drives these sediment concentrations, corresponding field data are lacking. To fill this gap, novel field observations of suspended...

This study investigates the capacity of an open inverted filter to stabilize the interface between the sand fill and core fill in a rubble mound breakwater. The strength of this filter relies on the arching mechanism of the base material, which is directly influenced by factors such as stability ratio and effective stresses. These forces arise...

The aerodynamic model of a combat aircraft is essential for its success and competitiveness compared to other combat aircraft. This thesis aims to research the most optimal machine learning model to create an aerodynamic model of a combat aircraft. The very large but still sparse, highly nonlinear dataset forms a challenge for using specific...

In the realm of fluid dynamics and particle transport, the control of particle trajectories represents a formidable challenge. It would be useful to be able to optimally navigate an oceanographic float from one pre-set location to another by solely changing its buoyancy. In this thesis, a first step in discovering whether this is possible and...

Efficient maintenance scheduling is a critical objective for aircraft carriers and Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Organizations (MROs) to minimize aircraft downtime. While predictive maintenance models have improved, accurately identifying materials, especially spare parts, for specific maintenance events remains challenging. This paper...

The solute transport across the osteochondral (OC) interface is of crucial metabolic importance for a normal function of articular cartilage, and, therefore, for the OC interface as a whole. A better understanding how the mechanical- and physiological properties of the OC interface affect the solute transport across the OC interface could lead...

In this thesis, we study a particle method for Bayesian deep learning. In particular, we look at the estimation of the parameters of an ensemble of Bayesian neural networks by means of this particle method, called Stein variational gradient descent (SVGD). This method iteratively updates a collection of parameters and it has the property that...
