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 concept of Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) aircraft holds great promise in achieving the goals outlined in Flightpath 2050. This involves utilizing electricity to power propellers and enhancing overall flight performance through interactions between the wings and propellers. This thesis investigates the stability and control aspects of...

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 surge in demand for inland vessel goods transportation has necessitated the operation of larger vessels with increased drafts. These larger vessels generate significant induced loads from their more powerful bow thrusters during berthing and mooring. These loads can lead to scour, which ultimately results in instability of the quay wall. To...

Coastal areas face increasing threat from erosion. The use of coastal protection structures is imperative to counter this. Concrete “armouring” is widely used due to durability and cost-effectiveness. Conventional methods of “armouring” result in habitat degradation and loss of biodiversity. ECOncrete developed Coastalock, an armour unit...

Neutrally stable metamaterials can maintain differ- ent shapes without any energy input, making it a key innovation in the quest for more energy-efficient technologies. Despite this intriguing property, the research in this area is scarce. This study proposes a method for achieving neutral stability in metama- terials. This method is validated...

Currently, most of the modular building can be fabricated off-site, except for the stability system. Therefore, the question arises: Could modules be designed such that there is no need for an additional stability system? As modules are typically built in a rectangular shape, incorporating stability elements such as bracings along the longer...

The transverse stability of timber terraced houses can be provided by CLT stability walls where decoupled timber terraced houses are preferred to meet acoustic requirements leading to rather large thicknesses for the CLT stability walls and many large connections for anchorage to the foundation. The main goal of this research was to investigate...

The safety of the Dutch dikes depends on various failure mechanisms. Macro stability, a geotechnical failure mechanism, is highly affected by differences in soil strength because the sliding plane propagates through areas of least resistance. The variations in soil properties in space, also known as spatial<br/>variability, are caused by...

This study presents a new approach for integrated tail assignment and maintenance task scheduling decision support. Wasted maintenance resources, restricted fleet availability for schedule flexibility, inconsistent planning, and no emphasis on schedule resilience are all inefficiencies that now arise from airlines' separate and manual tail...

The Deep Neural Network (DNN) has become a widely popular machine learning architecture thanks to its ability to learn complex behaviors from data. Standard learning strategies for DNNs however rely on the availability of large, labeled datasets. Self-Supervised Learning (SSL) is a style of learning that allows models to also use unlabeled data...

Differential mechanisms are remarkable mechanical elements that are widely utilized in various systems; nevertheless, conventional differential mechanisms are heavy and difficult to use in applications with limited design space. This paper presents a curved differential mechanism that utilizes a lightweight, compliant structure. This...

To support increasing renewable capacity for a net-zero future, energy storage will play a key role in maintaining grid stability. In this paper, all current and near-future energy storage technologies are compared for three different scenarios: (1) fixed electricity buy-in price, (2) market-based electricity buy-in price, and (3) energy storage...

Sustainable river management often requires long-term morphological simulations. As the future is unknown, uncertainty needs to be accounted for, which may require probabilistic simulations covering a large parameter domain. Even for one-dimensional models, simulation times can be long. One of the acceleration strategies is simplification of...

Herein, we present a practical strategy to enhance the performance of a multiphase system for bicarbonate hydrogenation based on a molecular Ru-PNP pincer catalyst. This study demonstrates that the use of organic antioxidants not only mitigates catalyst degradation but also significantly boosts its intrinsic activity. This enables efficient...

In alignment with widespread interest in carbon neutralization and sustainable practices, we disclose that conjugated polyelectrolyte (CPE) hydrogels are a type of recyclable, electrochemically stable, and environmentally friendly pseudocapacitive material for energy storage applications. By leveraging ionic-electronic coupling in a...

Physical model tests have been performed to study static stability of rock-armoured mild slopes. Current stability design formulae for steeper rock-armoured slopes focus on plunging and surging waves. Slopes of 1:6 and milder usually have more spilling breakers which decreases the load. Also, on mild slopes displaced rocks more often remain...

In this paper we present a complete framework for the energy-stable simulation of stratified incompressible flow in channels, using the one-dimensional two-fluid model. Building on earlier energy-conserving work on the basic two-fluid model, our new framework includes diffusion, friction, and surface tension. We show that surface tension can...

The lateral-torsional resistance of prismatic double-symmetric I-section beams is accurately predicted using a mechanically consistent Ayrton-Perry approach, combined with a calibrated generalized imperfection. The corresponding design formulation was recently adopted in the revised version of Eurocode 3. However, for prismatic mono-symmetric...

A variety of lakes located in the dry steppe area of southwestern Siberia are exposed to rapid climatic changes, including intra-century cycles with alternating dry and wet phases driven by solar activity. As a result, the salt lakes of that region experience significant fluctuations in water level and salinity, which have an essential impact...
