The demand for hydrogen is expected to increase significantly in the coming years due to its critical role in decarbonizing industrial processes. Offshore wind presents a viable energy source for powering electrolyzers, though it leads to intermittent production. While underground salt caverns are acknowledged as a promising solution for large...

The Overhead Catenary Line System (OCLS) is crucial for continuous electrical supply to trains in electrified railway networks. This article outlines the research conducted on the exploration of the sustainable design space of the Overhead Contact Line support structure on the main Dutch rail network. The research began with a comprehensive...

While the assumption of incompressible flow has been the prevailing standard for numerical simulations of wind turbine aerodynamics, the limit of this assumption is approached as the industry progresses towards increasingly higher operational tip speeds. This thesis explores the implications of compressibility and transonic flow phenomena,...

We investigate two open problems in discrete geometry regarding how large subsets of sets of points need to be in order for certain structures to emerge. First of all there is the Erdős-Szekeres convex polygon problem, also known as the Happy Ending problem. Interestingly, there is a clear distinction between the number of points required to...

Detecting nearby vehicles involves utilizing data from various sensors installed on a car as it moves. Common sensors for identifying nearby vehicles include LiDAR, cameras, and RADAR. However, all of these sensors suffer from the same issue -- they cannot detect an approaching vehicle that is not yet visible. Hence, this thesis explores the...

Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is known for its unparalleled control over layer thickness and 3D conformality and could be the future technique of choice to tailor the pore size of ceramic nanofiltration membranes. However, a major challenge in tuning and functionalizing a multichannel ceramic membrane is posed by its large internal pore...

The global installed capacity of floating offshore wind turbines is projected to increase by at least 100 times over the next decades. Station-keeping of floating offshore renewable energy devices is achieved through the use of mooring systems. Mooring systems are exposed to a variety of environmental and operational conditions that cause...

Actuator line modeling of wind turbines requires the definition of a free-stream velocity in a computational mesh and a regularization kernel to project the computed body forces onto the domain. Both choices strongly influence the results. In this work, a novel velocity sampling method—the so-called effective velocity model (EVM)—is...

This work introduces two innovative rolling pair concepts to minimize slippage and reduce mass in cam-roller systems of large-scale hydraulic drivetrains: The variable contact length and the Shifting Contact Geometry concepts. Both aim to improve traction in the low contact force phase in cyclically loaded rolling contacts. The shifting...

Achieving amplification with high gain and quantum-limited noise is a difficult problem to solve. Parametric amplification using a superconducting transmission line with high kinetic inductance is a promising technology not only to solve this problem but also adding several benefits. Compared with other technologies, they have the potential to...

Closed-form solutions are presented for calculating the reflection coefficient with corresponding uncertainty of metrology-grade 3.5 mm air-dielectric coaxial transmission lines for use as reference standards in S-parameter measurements up to 33 GHz. The closed-form solutions allow the calculation of the sensitivity coefficients required for...

Assessing the performance of interferometers and processing interferograms require accurate knowledge of the temporal lag, sensitivity, and spectral shift. While these parameters are well-defined for conventional interferometric configurations, their definition becomes opaque for complex configurations, such as bistatic systems with formation...

Assembly-line balancing is a significant issue in production systems. Employing industrial robots as the main production resource was a milestone in developing assembly lines, and emerging Industry 4.0 led industries to build collaborative assembly lines by combining robots and human operator skills. Recently, the majority of research on...

The characteristic cross-polarization (X-pol) of wide angle impedance matching (WAIM) structures is investigated. The study considers an ideal linearly polarized current sheet in the presence of various dielectric and artificial dielectric superstrates, analyzed using transmission line models representing the stratified media. The main...

Current design methods for flexure (or compliant) mechanisms regard stress as a secondary, limiting factor. This is remarkable because stress is also known as a useful design parameter. In this paper we propose the Stress And Geometry (STAGE) method, to design the geometry of a flexure mechanism together with a desired stress field. From this...

In order to fulfill the climate commitments outlined in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, there is a pressing need to substantially reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions worldwide. Among these GHG emissions, CO2 contributes for 75% of the total Greenhouse Gas emissions. The transport sector accounts for 22% of these CO2 emissions. Despite the...

Macaulay's method utilizes singularity functions to describe discontinue forces acting on beam structures. This method has been extended to determine internal forces and influence lines, making use of a single expression. The method can be applied to analyze all possible scenarios for both one-dimensional and two-dimensional constructions.
