In the pursuit of reducing the climate impact of aviation, there has been an increased interest in the adoption of renewable energy technologies. Examples of revolutionary technologies include hydrogen fuel cell systems and waste heat recovery using the organic Rankine cycle. The design of viable energy conversion systems for aviation poses...

The 20th century consists of technological improvements and societal changes due to industrialisation and the two World Wars. Architects, urban planners, artists, critics, and other professions sought to create a better future using different themes and available technologies to visualise an ideal city based on their ideals about people’s needs....

Tidal inlet systems, which consist of back–barrier basins connected to the open sea by one or multiple inlets, are found at many places along sandy coasts. They are valuable for ecology (breeding and feeding areas), economy (gas–mining and sand–mining) and recreation, and are important for coastal safety. But they are also sensitive to external...

After years of missing the agreed upon goals for carbon reduction, we might conclude that global climate policies set infeasible standards to halt climate change. The widespread non-compliance of many signees with frameworks such as the Paris Agreement indicates that these frameworks were too optimistic regarding the signees’ motivation to act....

Utopia, seen not only as a creative and imaginative form, but as a critical and speculative method of devising worlds, spaces, and societal structures different than our own has existed long before receiving its name based on Thomas More’s 1516 book Utopia. Originating in the literary field, utopia has since been used in various creative...

In this work, we investigate the sources of dissipation in adiabatic boundary layers of non-ideal compressible fluid flows. Direct numerical simulations of transitional, zero-pressure gradient boundary layers are performed with an in-house solver considering two fluids characterized by different complexity of the fluid molecules, namely air...

Ideal Adsorbed Solution Theory (IAST) is a common method for modelling mixture adsorption isotherms based on pure component isotherms. When the adsorbent has distinct adsorption sites, the segregated version of IAST (SIAST) provides improved adsorbed loadings compared to IAST. We have adopted the concept of SIAST and applied it to an explicit...

This dissertation is concerned with the study of the structure of certain deformations of operator algebras associated with Coxeter groups. These operator algebras, called Hecke C*-algebras and Hecke-von Neumann algebras, are operator algebraic completions of Iwahori-Hecke algebras. They occur as natural abstractions of certain endomorphism...

The pre-treatment of waste activated sludge (WAS) has become more common since it often results in improved bioconversion to methane, in both rate and extent. However, thorough insights on the possible effects and mechanisms of mild pre-treatment techniques, such as temperatures &lt;100 °C combined with the addition of H<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2<...

Non-ideal compressible flows exhibit physical behaviors that are quantitatively and qualitatively different than those of a perfect or ideal gas. As such, the classical gas dynamic relationships that can be found on fluid-mechanics textbooks cannot be directly applied to characterize this type of flows. NiceProp is a tool for interactively...

In this work we examine the flow deviation and its relationship to critical choking, i.e., choking of the meridional component of velocity, in transonic turbine cascades operating with non-ideal compressible flows. To this purpose, a generalized expression of the corrected flow per unit area as a function of both the thermodynamic state and...

With the introduction of large commercial industrial laboratories at the end of the nineteenth century, many types of experiments were institutionalized that do not aim at testing hypotheses. This paper builds a typology of experiments in techno-science, by analysing more than two hundred and fifty real-life technical projects. This resulted in...

Computation-In-Memory (CIM) using memristor devices provides an energy-efficient hardware implementation of arithmetic and logic operations for numerous applications, such as neuromorphic computing and database query. However, memristor-based CIM suffers from various non-idealities such as conductance drift, read disturb, wire parasitics,...

An idealized width-averaged model is employed to study the influence of wind stress on subtidal salt intrusion and stratification in well-mixed and partially stratified estuaries. We show that even in mild conditions, wind forcing can influence the estuarine salinity structure in a substantial way. By studying the role of wind forcing on...

The process in which a smooth laminar flow transits to a chaotic to a chaotic, turbulent state, is a topic of particular interest in the sectors of energy technology and aerodynamics. To study the different paths that can be followed during the transition process, various tools and methods have been developed. A preliminary investigation of the...

This paper investigates whether spring-foam technology in an aircraft seat-pan can reduce weight and at the same time provide equal or better comfort. Firstly, through literature studies and using an iterative design process a prototype seat-pan was designed and developed using spring-foam technology. The (dis)comfort of this seat was...

The validation of SU2 for modelling classical non-ideal compressible fluid dynamics will advance the research into efficient ORC turbomachinery design. This study determines the validity of the two-dimensional flow solver for predicting the isentropic expansion of Siloxane MM through a converging-diverging nozzle using...
