The world’s coasts and deltas offer a multitude of valuable ecosystem services, providing safety against flooding and economic benefits. Many of these systems are, however, under pressure by climate change and increasing human activities. Protecting these systems and preservation of their multiple functions requires a thorough understanding of...

Dense suspension flows, both in the natural environment and industrial settings, are complex phenomena with significant implications. From rivers shaping landscapes to industrial processes involving slurry transport, these flows hold a prominent position in numerous sectors. This thesis delves into a specific facet of these intricate flows:...

This thesis presents a novel approach to the pricing of green bonds, a growing segment in financial markets with an emphasis on environmental sustainability. Unlike traditional financial instruments, green bonds uniquely incorporate environmental considerations, particularly carbon price (c_t), along with traditional factors like the short rate ...

Galaxy clusters are some of the largest known structures in the universe. Studying them observationally and theoretically can provide a lot of information on how these clusters form and are structured. One way to study them is through the so-called Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (SZ) effect, which is an interaction between the cosmic...

The topic of this thesis project is to use the particle-tracking framework to study salt intrusion.<br/>This project was proposed by Deltares and is a small part of the SALTISolutions project, that attempts to build a digital twin model of the Rhine-Meuse Delta. From a mathematical perspective, the particle-tracking framework is inspired by the...

Fire-induced domino effect is one of the main threats to hazardous material storage tanks, and many attempts have been conducted to assess the vulnerability of storage tanks exposed to fire to evaluate domino effect risk. However, past research ignored the influence of wind load on the thermal buckling behavior of storage tanks exposed to...

The deployment of electromagnetic (EM) induction tools while drilling is one of the standard routines for assisting the geosteering decision-making process. The conductivity distribution obtained through the inversion of the EM induction log can provide important information about the geological structure around the borehole. To image the 3-D...

Vascular self-healing concrete (SHC) has great potential to mitigate the environmental impact of the construction industry by increasing the durability of structures. Designing concrete with high initial mechanical properties by searching a specific arrangement of vascular structure is of great importance. Herein, an automatic optimization...

Quantitative predictions of marine and aeolian sediment transport in the nearshore–beach–dune system are important for designing Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) in coastal environments. To quantify the impact of the marine-aeolian interactions on shaping NBS, we present a framework coupling three existing process-based models: Delft3D Flexible...

Context. Modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) is a promising alternative to dark matter. To further test the theory, there is a need for fluid- and particle-dynamics simulations. The force in MOND is not a direct particle-particle interaction, but derives from a potential for which a nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) needs to be...

Fused Filament Fabrication is an additive manufacturing technique in which molten thermoplastic polymers are extruded through a nozzle. Therefore, the interplay between the viscoelastic nature of the polymer melt, temperature, printing conditions and nozzle shape may lead to inconsistent extrusion. To improve the extrusion control and...

Monopiles are the most common Offshore Wind Turbine (OWT) foundations due to their simplicity in design, fabrication, and installation. However, large new-generation turbines have led to significant changes in monopile dimensions, necessitating extensive finite element analyses and ground investigations to meet design requirements. While Cone...

Low-lying coastal cities are vulnerable to compound floods caused by many factors including river flows, tides and local rainfall. Many previous studies focus on the impacts of rainfall and tidal levels (two driving factors) on estuaries or regions near the main single river, while research about the three influencing factors on the floods...

A strictly causal numerical study of the pulsed operation of a weakly dispersive, leaky wave (LW) antenna is presented. The intricacies at the forefront of the electromagnetic (EM) field radiated from a gap-fed slot in a perfectly electrically conducting (PEC) sheet are evidenced for the first time. The radical effect of a free-space gap...

This thesis explores the feasibility of aerocapture manoeuvres at Venus, focusing on the challenges for an autonomous Guidance and Control (G&amp;C) system, including a partial Navigation system simulation. Aerocapture leverages atmospheric drag for orbit insertion and presents a cost-effective alternative to traditional propulsive methods. The...

This study addresses the challenge of accurately modeling the multi-regime plasma flow through Ambipolar Plasma Thrusters (APTs), a type of Electric Propulsion (EP) system. Despite their advantages, understanding the behavior of plasma within APTs is complex due to the presence of two different flow regimes: the fluid regime inside the thruster...

The port of Rotterdam is one of the most important ports in Western Europe and via the 'Nieuwe Waterweg' it provides maritime trading between the large hinterland and the rest of the world. To provide port access for the large vessels, the channel and port basins need to be dredged regularly. At the same time, in other locations, sediment is...

The increase of demand for offshore wind energy resulted in an increase of larger wind turbines. These turbines are often placed on top of a monopile (MP) substructure. The conventional method for installing these MPs uses a jack-up vessel. However, due to the local bathymetry and soil conditions. This method has its drawbacks, such as...

The mimetic spectral element method is a relatively young method in numerical solutions of partial differential equations and actions that describe physical systems. Its advantage is that it takes the geometrical structure of the problem into account which guarantees consistency of the numerical scheme and the conservation of relevant quantities...
