Indonesia has been dependent on its abundant coal reserves to meet its increasing electricity demand. The Indonesian government is aware of the negative environmental effects of coal combustion and pledged to become carbon neutral by 2060 or earlier by transitioning towards renewables. In principle, it is known that Indonesia has large renewable...

There is a very popular fable, dating back to the early 1800s, about three little pigs that build their houses of different materials and a wolf that tries to catch them by blowing down their houses. From the three houses built from straws, sticks or bricks, only the house made out of bricks withstands the blow of the wolf. Although the moral of...

Vaccination is a strong and effective way to prevent spreading of infectious diseases and promotes global health. In the future, the importance of vaccines is expected only to increase, driven by factors such as increased international traveling, higher healthcare expenditures, and a growing population. To meet the growing demands, it is...

Climate change is a pressing issue. Hydrogen aircraft are an excellent alternative to current kerosene aircraft, and appear to be the most viable long-term solution for net-zero flight. One of the main challenges for hydrogen aircraft is to sustain a low boil-off rate. This research explores the solution of active cooling of the LH2 mixture in...

Recognition justice is a form of justice that is achieved when people from different backgrounds can participate in society as peers, without having to assimilate to a dominant party. It is currently not being represented in climate change or conflict models.<br/><br/>This research aims to conceptualise recognition justice for use in agent-based...

The potential of households to adapt their energy use to the conditions of the energy system remains largely untapped due to shortcomings in consumer governance (i.e., the organization of household energy use). A lack of price signals and services leads to uncoordinated household energy use. Various proposals exist for updating consumer...

The imminence of anthropogenic climate change has motivated a global energy transition towards sustainable power generation. Offshore wind—an important contributor to the energy transition—is expanding, not only in turbine size and number of installations, but also into regions with harsher environmental conditions. One of those conditions in...

Finite Element Methods (FEMs) are widely employed for damage simulation in composites, with the Cohesive Zone Model (CZM) being particularly favored for its robustness and scalability. Despite the CZM's mesh-dependent nature, the Discontinuous Galerkin Cohesive Zone Model (DG/CZM) formulation allows for relatively arbitrary crack propagation...

The Wadden Sea is of great ecological importance. Key elements in the Wadden Sea are the extensive intertidal flats. These contain vast amounts of life, serve as feeding grounds for millions of birds, and provide ecosystem services such as coastal protection. It follows that it is important to be able to understand and predict how these vital...

Manual wheelchair users, especially those with spinal cord injuries, often suffer from shoulder overuse and pain. Understanding the specific role of the muscles involved in wheelchair propulsion is essential to prevent these complications. Yet, there is uncertainty about which muscles are primarily recruited, and their contribution to propulsion...

As turbofan technology advances, periodic engine inspection and maintenance still remain a significant part of aircraft operational costs. Operators are thus looking to engine condition-based maintenance (ECBM), leveraging sensor data and numerical engine models for continuous diagnostics. KLM Engine Services developed a surrogate model based on...

The Random Finite Element Method (RFEM) is a robust stochastic method for slope reliability analysis that incorporates the spatial variability of soil properties. However, the extensive computational time associated with the direct Monte Carlo simulation limits its practical application. To overcome this problem, this study investigates the use...

The European energy transition policies aim to mitigate the effects of climate change by moving away from fossils and promoting both onshore and offshore renewable energy technologies. Although onshore renewables are driving the transition so far, policymakers believe that in order to achieve the targets, the power grid must have access to the...
