The automotive industry plays a crucial role in battling the climate crisis and reducing emissions. Medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles alone contribute to one-fourth of global emissions in the transport sector and there is a positive trend in the demand for these vehicles. Battery Electric Trucks have the potential to transform the growing...

3D concrete printing (3DCP) is a new, innovative construction method in which concrete structures are produced layer-by-layer using a 3D printer. A printed concrete structure, can be self-supporting, which means no formwork is required anymore, increasing the freedom of form, while decreasing construction cost and material use. However, the...

The rapid growth in world population and increasing demands have led to the lack of fresh water, taking a toll on several of earths reserves, mainly the fresh water supply reserves. Water stress deters economic growth, leads to conflicts and has a direct impact on the health of humans. Studies show the trends in the<br/>increase of water...

Climate change, as a result from global warming, requires an energy transition: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and a radical innovation of the global energy system to proceed apace. Offshore wind is an important source of clean, renewable energy, and it plays a key role in the transition. 80% of the worldwide...

Our contemporary society consists of increasingly complex systems-of-systems in which technical and social subsystems influence each other. Multi-models reflect this complexity and are useful to analyse these complex socio-technical systems. They consist of connected simulation models which may each have their focus on a subsystem or modelling...

In this thesis a design optimisation framework was developed, with the aim of reducing the cord usage in TANIQ’s Large Bore Hose product family. To decrease the finite element analysis time, an axisymmetric finite element model was developed using ABAQUS’s rebar method, where the directional cord properties are smeared in hoop direction. The two...

To exploit its socio-economic functions, engineering measures are regularly applied in estuaries. Estuaries are, however, known to be very complex systems. Stemming from this complexity is the generation of a so-called estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM), which poses great siltation problems to the engineering measures. An engineering measure,...

A study of five European estuaries by Winterwerp and Wang (2013) showed that tidal ranges increased significantly along with the ongoing narrowing and deepening of these estuaries. In addition to an increase in tidal range, a dramatic increase in suspended sediment concentrations has been observed in the Ems (Germany) and Loire (France)...

Viscoelasticity is a material property that is relevant in a variety of nanoscale materials and interfaces in medicine and industry. Therefore, a method of mechanical quantification has become exceedingly desired. In this thesis the Atomic force microscope (AFM) is applied to accurately characterize the mechanical behavior of viscoelastic...

In the past decade, the wind energy subsidies provided by the Dutch government is declining. In order to adopt wind energy as a well-established source of renewable energy, the costs of (offshore) wind energy should be lowered. This can be achieved by increasing the energy production or by lowering the maintenance and initial costs. In search of...

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly affecting people’s lives. AI is even employed in fields where human lives depend on the AI’s decisions. However, these algorithms lack transparency, i.e. it is unclear how they determine the outcome. If, for instance, the AI’s purpose is to classify an image, the AI will learn this from examples...

The goal of this study is to understand the processes and wing characteristics that influence lift generation of a flapping wing, and apply the acquired knowledge in an optimization setting to obtain an optimal wing thickness distribution which maximizes effective wing lift. To achieve this, an extensive literature survey was conducted to...

Greece was amongst the first countries to be hit after the outburst of the European financial crisis in 2008. The crisis revealed the underlying intra-Eurozone macroeconomic imbalances and turned the attention of the global community and investors towards the very high level of Greek public debt. Private investments in the Greek economy also...

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are increasingly under threat of coastal flooding, which challenges the safety of their societies and vulnerable economies. The emergency of this issue, exacerbated by climate change, has alarmed international organisations and national governments that have been demanding for robust risk assessments to...

The non-linear relation between Evapotranspiration (ET) and the atmospheric moisture demand in terms of vapor pressure deficit (VPD) has been widely reported. Observations point towards a diverse range of potential drivers; however, without uncovering why the identified factors are found to control diurnal ET-VPD hysteresis. Modelling efforts...

The Morris method is a widely used screening method in sensitivity analysis. The method assumes that the input parameters are independent of each other. To overcome the assumption a copula-based Morris method is proposed. In this report the results of taking the dependencies into account are analyzed for the Morris method. For two examples...

Ferrofluid bearings provide a cheap and passive alternative to contactless bearings such as magnetic bearings and fluid bearings. The absence of stick-slip and the low viscous friction make them interesting for high precision applications. Despite the theoretical models available in literature, the number of design rules for ferrofluid bearings...

To cut down immense greenhouse gases emission and energy consumption in the rapidly urbanizing world, a holistic understanding and rethinking of our dynamic urban energy system are inevitable. Performing bottom-up building energy modelings at urban scale based on Geographic Information System (GIS) and semantic 3D city models could be a...

The European Union through its Roadmap 2050 has mandated nearly zero energy as the standard for all building stock. While newly built buildings will be of nearly zero energy standard by 31 December 2020 (public-owned buildings after 31 December 2018), new buildings form only 1% of the addition to the existing building stock which implies that to...
