Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a well-established nuclear imaging modality for studying functional and pathological properties of the brain. Conventional general purpose SPECT systems typically offer a spatial resolution of about 10 mm with a sensitivity of 0.01-0.02%. A few dedicated brain SPECT scanners have been...

Molecular imaging aims for the visualisation, characterisation, and quantification of biological processes in humans and other living systems at the molecular and cellular level. For today’s patient care, molecular imaging allows for (early) detection and characterisation of disease, efficient planning and assessment of treatments, and...

Airborne wind energy (AWE) is a novel technology that aims at accessing wind resources at higher altitudes which cannot be reached with conventional wind turbines. This technological challenge is accomplished using tethered aircraft or kites in combination with either onboard or ground-based generators. In the former case, the kinetic energy of...

According to the ISO 14687-2:2019 standard, the water content of H2 fuel for transportation and stationary applications should not exceed 5 ppm (molar). To achieve this water content, zeolites can be used as a selective adsorbent for water. In this work, a computational screening study is carried out for the first time to identify potential...

The optimal hot metal desulphurisation (HMD) slag is defined as a slag with a sufficient sulphur removal capacity and a low apparent viscosity (η<sub>slag</sub>) which leads to low iron losses. In part I of this study, the fundamentals behind the optimal slag were discussed. In this part these fundamentals are explored by a Monte Carlo...

Probabilistic Monte Carlo simulations are often used to determine a project's completion time given a required probability level. During project execution, schedule changes negatively affect the probability of meeting the project's completion time. A manual trial and error approach is then conducted to find a set of mitigation measures to...

The tropospheric delay is one of many error sources that affect the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning solutions. The widely used troposphere models assume a homogeneous atmosphere so that only the zenith delay needs to be determined and is mapped through an elevation-dependent mapping function. This procedure is to reduce...

Portland cement is the most produced material in the world. The hydration process of cement consists of a group of complex chemical reactions. In order to investigate the mechanism of cement hydration, it is vital to study the hydration of each phase separately. An integrated model is proposed in this paper to simulate the dissolution of...

For the further development of spin-echo techniques to label elastic scattering it is necessary to perform simulations of the Larmor precession of neutron spins in a magnetic field. The details of some of these techniques as implemented at the reactor in Delft are simulated. First, the workings of the magnetized foil flipper are simulated. A...

In the past decades, molecular simulation has become an important tool for studying phase and reaction equilibria. In this dissertation, we work on improvements of the Continuous Fractional Component (CFC) method in Monte Carlo simulations. We also develop a software package for molecular simulations that uses this method. In Chapter 2, we...

The object of this thesis work was to develop a (Monte Carlo) simulation package that can be used to aid in the design of the Timed Photon Counter (TiPC). The TiPC is a single photon detector whose working principle is based upon the multiplication of an electron signal by transmission dynodes, or tynodes. For TiPC to be feasible, it is...

Breast cancer, being the most common cancer among females, is nowadays routinely diagnosed using X-ray mammography. Though this technique has proven its effectiveness in many cases, X-ray mammography has some disadvantages like reduced diagnostic sensitivity for dense breasts, need for strong breast compression and inability to assess tissues at...

Cancer is known as one of the leading causes of death in the world with difficult<br/>diagnose at early stages, poor prognosis and high mortality. Animal-based<br/>experiments and clinical trials have always been the main approach for cancer<br/>research, albeit they may have limitations and ethical issues. Mathematicalmodeling<br/>as an...

Oncolytic virotherapy is known as a new treatment to employ less virulent viruses to specifically target and damage cancer cells. This work presents a cellular automata model of oncolytic virotherapy with an application to pancreatic cancer. The fundamental biomedical processes (like cell proliferation, mutation, apoptosis) are modeled by the...

The sensitivity of simulated scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images to the various physical model ingredients is studied using an accurate, but slow simulator, to identify the most important ingredients to include in a reliable and fast SEM image simulator. The quantum mechanical transmission probability (QT) model and the electron...

We present a new molecular simulation code, Brick-CFCMC, for performing Monte Carlo simulations using state-of-the-art simulation techniques. The Continuous Fractional Component (CFC) method is implemented for simulations in the NVT/NPT ensembles, the Gibbs Ensemble, the Grand-Canonical Ensemble, and the Reaction Ensemble. Molecule transfers...

We propose a novel reconfigurable hardware architecture to implement Monte Carlo based simulation of physical dose accumulation for intensity-modulated adaptive radiotherapy. The long term goal of our effort is to provide accurate dose calculation in real-time during patient treatment. This will allow wider adoption of personalised patient...

This paper presents parametric investigation results on a staring FMCW radar system which targets drone swarms. The parametric investigation has been carried out by using the RAPID-SIM which facilitates system-level analysis of drone swarms' radar signatures. This paper explains concepts of the simulator's each module and also covers two...

In this paper, we extend the model of wound healing by Boon et al. (J Biomech 49(8):1388–1401, 2016). In addition to explaining the model explicitly regarding every component, namely cells, signalling molecules and tissue bundles, we categorized fibroblasts as regular fibroblasts and myofibroblasts. We do so since it is widely documented that...

The adsorption of organic micropollutants (OMPs) on high-silica zeolites is characterized by adsorption isotherms with various shapes. The occurrence of an S-shaped adsorption isotherm indicates the lack of adsorption affinity for OMPs at low, environmentally relevant equilibrium concentrations. In this study, S-shaped isotherms were observed...
