Climate change is one of the most dangerous and simultaneously most complex threats humanity has ever faced. The key response to this threat has been an unprecedented strategic shift in the energy sector, known as the<i> energy transition</i>. Electricity powers the modern world and is at the very centre of the energy transition. The shift to...

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...

The Oscillating Water Column (OWC) wave energy converter has been shown to have high potential, thus rendering extensive development in recent years. In order to further accelerate its development, highly accurate yet computationally efficient tools are necessary particularly when studying the interaction of multiple OWC devices. This paper...

This paper investigates the implementation of a nonlocal regularisation of the material point method to mitigate mesh-dependency issues for the simulation of large deformation problems in brittle soils. The adopted constitutive description corresponds to a simple elastoplastic model with nonlinear strain softening. A number of benchmark...

HIsarna is a new and breakthrough smelting reduction technology for producing liquid hot metal for steelmaking directly from iron ores. Compared to the conventional blast furnace route, HIsarna achieves a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions by eliminating coking and the need for iron ore agglomeration processes such as sintering and pelletizing and...

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...

Quantum computers have gained widespread interest from both industry and academia in the last decade as they are very promising for solving problems intractable by classical computers. However, there is a limited number of qubits in current quantum processors, which impedes the practical applications of a quantum computer. To increase the number...

The current trend in the state-of-the-art oscillators achieves low phase noise performance. Such stringent performance is demanded in modern Communication Systems. This thesis proposes the design of a CMOS oscillator achieving the ultra-low phase noise. This design is based on TSMC 40 nm technology, the supply voltage is 1.1 V, and the...

MEMS microphones offer a significant scope to improve miniaturization, integration and cost of acoustic systems, poised to be the preferred microphone option for consumer electronics and medical advancements. A MEMS microphone needs a readout interface to convert the microphone’s output to a digital code for further processing, while its poor...

Sustainable and renewable energies are essential in achieving climate targets set by the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) represent an innovative technology with considerable potential to contribute to these goals. However, being a relatively new technology, FOWTs pose challenges...

This study aims to quantify the aerodynamic behaviour of fixed pitch rotors with a diameter of 12.7 cm in axial descent, and its contribution to the attitude oscillations found for quadcopters under similar flight conditions. Wind tunnel tests are performed with an isolated rotor, as well as a complete quadcopter mounted inside a gimbal that...

This investigation focuses on the premixed conical flame, a mainstay of combustion diagnostics. While extensive studies have explored high-frequency oscillations in the canonical Bunsen flame, little attention has been given to low-frequency oscillations affecting flame fronts. This thesis aims to explain the origins of these oscillations and...

Life at low-Reynolds numbers regime is intriguing. Single motile bacteria are known to exhibit erratic behaviour; they swim in what is known as a random walk, alternating between periods of swimming straight and abrupt moments of re-orientation. Yet in dense populations, cells of E.coli have been reported to exhibit weak synchronization and self...

Utilization of Boundary Element Method (BEM) based on linear potential flow for modelling Oscillating Water Column (OWC) devices has gained popularity in the last two decades. The commercial BEM solver WAMIT has been used widely for modelling OWCs and validated using experimental modelling (Delauré et. al. 2003, Bingham et. al. 2015, Faÿ 2020)....

The option to have an WEC integrated breakwater at the port of Genoa ensures that the port will protect the area from harsh incoming waves, but also contribute towards the port decarbonization. However, for the solution to be viable, a first layer analysis must estimate its profitability. This works uses a long-term high fidelity wave numerical...

Analog computation-in-memory (CIM) architecture alleviates massive data movement between the memory and the processor, thus promising great prospects to accelerate certain computational tasks in an energy-efficient manner. However, data converters involved in these architectures typically achieve the required computing accuracy at the expense...

Cyclic crushing experiments with a haversine velocity waveform were performed on passively confined, freshwater columnar ice specimens for a variety of velocities and frequencies. The aim of the experiments was to study the ice deformation and failure behavior in crushing when loaded at a predefined displacement pattern closely resembling the...

Understanding and controlling the ultrasound contrast agent (UCA)'s response to an applied ultrasound pressure field are crucial when investigating ultrasound imaging sequences and therapeutic applications. The magnitude and frequency of the applied ultrasonic pressure waves affect the oscillatory response of the UCA. Therefore, it is...

The amount of power electronic interfaced generation (PEIG) is significantly proliferating in modern cyber-physical energy systems (CPESs). The limited capabilities (e.g. inertia, over-current) of PEIG, together with their location and technology-specific designed control systems, alter the dynamic properties of different types of stability...

We propose to use the State Estimation by Sum-of-Norms Regularisation (STATESON-)algorithm for recovering the tip-sample interaction in high-speed tapping mode atomic force microscopy (AFM). This approach enables accurate sample height estimation for each independent cantilever oscillation period, provided that the tip-sample interaction...
