Over many decades, intensive studies have been performed towards safe and sustainable substitutes for chromate corrosion inhibitors in active corrosion protection coatings for aerospace aluminium alloys. The proposed candidates must provide similar corrosion protection as compared to that of chromate-based compounds and be cost-effective for...

Veerkamp, Kevin (author)
In his paper "Group C*-algebras without the completely bounded approximation property", Haagerup proves several important results about the weak amenability of locally compact groups. Among these, is the result that a lattice in a second-countable, unimodular, locally compact group is weakly amenable if and only if the surrounding group itself...

This thesis studies the use of metamaterials for mitigating train-induced ground-borne vibrations, a growing issue with the projected increase in train transportation. Traditional mitigation measures such as trenches often fall short, particularly at low frequencies and small incidence angles. Metamaterials, engineered to alter wave propagation...

Autonomous navigation is a critical aspect of robotic systems, particularly in hostile and uncertain environments, and robot localization is central to navigation. Robot localization establishes its position within its surroundings. This thesis addresses the challenge of robot localization, focusing on a lunar-like environment with constraints...

There is an imbalance in the nitrogen cycle, mainly caused by an increasingly intensive agricultural sector. This leads to the degradation of nature and the loss of biodiversity. Measures have been taken at European level to reduce the amount of nitrogen emitted by the agricultural sector, but this has caused a backlash as farmers in many...

The digital world is evolving toward representing - and serving the interconnection of - natural persons. Instead of depending on the intrastructure of Big Tech companies and governments, users can cooperate and use their hardware to form public infrastructure. Instead of existing by virtue of a reference in some institution's database, users...

The shift to sustainable energy sources has increased demand for Energy Transition Metals such as nickel, copper, cobalt, and manganese. To satisfy this need while reducing the negative social and environmental effects of conventional mining, Deep-sea Nodule Collection (DSNC) appears to be a feasible option. Despite its potential, DSNC...

To reach the Dutch renewable energy (RE) targets of 2030, the entire Netherlands has been investing in solar energy, electric vehicles and other systems based on RE. This increase of electricity use does not come without problems and the most pressing one is that of network congestion. Due to this, businesses are no longer able to expand their...

There is a lack of academic attention towards the relationship between local governments and circular economy social innovations. While academic evidence suggests that local governments and policymakers can positively affect the success of social innovations, there is a lack of in-depth studies on how exactly they support social innovation. The...

The irreversible effects of climate change have led to a significant increase in citizen-led and initiated local energy cooperatives. Playing a crucial role in the shift to renewable energy, these cooperatives are evolving from informal community groups to structured organisations. Their success relies on co-creation, a collaborative process in...

Micro-indentation testing has shown great promise in extracting local mechanical properties of ductile metal materials. Although the relevant contact physics has been well revealed since the 19th century, interpreting the indentation data still poses many challenges at the application level. Regarding one of the mainstream methodologies for...

Numerous traffic bridges have been constructed over the last 150 years. Because bridges are commonly built based on an expected lifetime of 75 to 100 years, a large quantity of bridges are reaching the end of their design lifetime, or even are far overdue. To ensure these bridges remain operational without experiencing catastrophic failures,...

The recent housing market and social trends have changed the houses from large family homes to small single-dweller apartments. Although living alone does not necessarily mean that solo-dwellers are lonely, they are more at risk of social isolation which can result into loneliness. This resulted into the need for more community living. The...

We humans evolved in nature, but over the years we moved from being a part of nature to being apart from nature. This causes our mental health, with stress as the most important aspect, to suffer from our modern life in the city. A significant challenge we face is finding ways to integrate nature into our build environment for stress relief. A...

The Bajau Laut or Sama Dilaut people are an ethnic group of sea nomads who used to roam between the Filipino, Malaysian, and Indonesian maritime zones. The Bajau are known to be amazing freedivers, being able to dive in depths of up to 30 meters and having the ability to hold their breath for more than 5 minutes, making them a group of people...

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...
