Research to analyse and/or develop novel materials and techniques is necessary to address competition and safeguard craftmanship in shipbuilding. In this master thesis, two new approaches to reduce the production and maintenance costs are studied: {metal foam core, metal face sheet} sandwich materials and corner adstir fillet stationary shoulder...

For many aerospace applications, the dominant airfoil self-noise source is Turbulent Boundary Layer Trailing Edge (TBL-TE) noise. The replacement of solid airfoil trailing edges with permeable materials proved to be an adequate noise reduction mean in previous studies. This thesis project contributes to the development of innovative permeable...

The interest in alternative fuels in the maritime sector is growing due to increasing concerns of the effect of harmful emissions. Hydrogen in combination with a fuel cell has a high potential to be a more environmental friendly solution than the commonly used fossil fuel systems. However, the use of hydrogen encounters problems looking at the...

The Dutch government set two environmental goals by 2050. One of them is being climate neutral and the other one is to have a circular economy. In order to meet both goals in the best environmental conditions, extensive environmental research is required. This thesis is one of these researches and its main focus is on the climate neutral goal by...

The current take-make-dispose economy, resulting in resource pressure and environmental problems, calls for circular economics. Islands are perfect living laboratories, because of their clearly defined boundaries and vulnerability to external factors. In this graduation Project, Ilha de Paquetá in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is taken as a case study...

Whilst research in solar cell materials lead to higher efficiencies every year, new difficulties arise with every breakthrough to get an even higher efficiency. Therefore, every component of a PV system should be examined, as well as how their behaviour under operation affects performance to improve the overall PV yield. In particular the...

A traditional Trombe wall is known as a high thermal-mass wall, situated behind a window of a room and separated by an air cavity. The idea behind using a Trombe wall is that heat, ventilation and comfort can be passively generated by using the ‘free’ energy of the sun. The surface of the wall absorbs solar radiation when the sun shines, stores...

In spite of the fact that there are many advantages of alkali activated materials (also called geopolymers) over the cement-based materials, geopolymer concrete has been used in the past for construction purposes on a very limited level. Among the many advantages of geopolymers compared with the cement-based materials is less CO2 emission, it...

This thesis studies the radiation dose deposited on a 6U CubeSat in interplanetary orbit. The European Space Agency’s radiation data tool SPENVIS has been used to determine the proton flux in interplanetary space during a solar particle event which occurs only once every one hundred years. SPENVIS has further been applied to obtain a dose depth...

The Particle Finite Element Method is a numerical tool that has been introduced more than a decade ago for the solution of engineering problems involving large deformations.
The method falls under the category of mesh-based particle methods, meaning that all information is stored on moving particles that represent the domain under analysis...

TThis project started out as a quest to find a meaningful application for the electroluminescent material: a phenomenom where a plane of phosphor is lit up when an alternating current is run through it. The material has several unique properties which make it perfect for application on smart wearables:It emits light, it is paper thin, it is...

Bulk handling grabs wear due to interaction with bulk material. In this research the geometrical shape of the grab is adjusted to reduce this wear. A DEM simulation using an iron ore pellet material model, created by S. Lommen, is used to assess different concepts. The material model is validated for forces, but not for wear. Wear measurements...

It has been reported that due to the rapid urbanization and economic growth the municipal solid waste (MSW) would double in volume from 1.3 billion tons per year (in 2012) annually by the end of 2025, challenging environmental and public health management worldwide. Given that, most of the MSW incineration (MSWI) bottom ash (BA) are disposed in...

Increasing urbanization and climate change are encouraging architects and engineers to use water as building land, adopting floating structures as a favorable solution. Floating architecture not only could help coastline cities to develop through seas and face sea level rise, but presents many other positive aspects among which particular...

District heating networks (DHN) are frequently considered an alternative heating solutions in the energy transition. The implementation of thermal storage in large-scale, existing, district heating networks was researched in this study. Thermal storage was found to enable the incorporation of sustainable heat sources and optimise fuel usage in...

A time of flight MIEZE spectrometer, which employs radio frequency spin flippers with square pole shoes and a magnetic yoke is presented. These flippers can achieve higher fields than conventional resonant RF flippers, which employ an air core. High fields are crucial for the construction of a high resolution and compact MIEZE spectrometer....
