Despite the huge efforts devoted to the development of the electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) in the past decade, still many challenges are present, hindering further approaches to industrial applications. This paper gives a perspective on these challenges from a Process Systems Engineering (PSE) standpoint, while at the same time...

The future will see an increase in missions headed for deep space. Advanced payloads will require higher data rates in more efficient spacecraft. Conventional space communication is facilitated through RF technology. Although it is very reliable, doubts arise on its future sustainability because of limited bandwidth, inefficiency and a saturated...

Ensuring sustainability in shipping extends beyond fuel choices to encompass the responsible use of materials in vessel construction and maintenance. Shifting from the prevailing 'take-make-dispose' model to a circular economy is crucial for enhancing sustainable waste reduction in the industry. Unlike consumer goods, current ship design...

While image-based georeferencing systems are widely available, none are designed for edge computing on board small satellites in space. Recent advances in autonomous data processing allow points of interest (POIs) to be identified in the captured images, enabling prioritization of data and reducing required downlink bandwidths. Directly...

CubeSat missions have been deployed to cislunar space and beyond, paving the way for the next significant advancement: a dedicated CubeSat mission to explore a planet near Earth. To contribute to this goal, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) has developed radiation-hardened small satellite technologies, including communications, power and onboard...

The severity of climate change impacts various aspects of human life today, with projections of up to six degrees of global warming by 2100 if significant changes are not adopted. (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2021). Among others, the energy supply cannot be solely fossil-based but need to adopt alternative ways of generation,...

Due to the growing demand for offshore wind energy and the increasing wind turbine sizes, a shortage of capable installation vessels is anticipated by 2024. Consequently, the utilisation of heavy-lift vessels, previously not employed for bottom-founded or floating offshore wind turbine installations, may become imperative to realise the offshore...

Yearly, 20.000 fatalities are recorded in road accidents on European roads alone. This situation is far more severe (1.3 million humans) when the global scope of road accidents is considered. Thus, Policymakers are initiating policy programs to overcome this challenge by enhancing safety and maximizing the associated positive economic impact....

Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) is a particularly relevant technology for addressing the increasing complexity of engineering systems, the need for rapid time-to-market, and the need for achieving reductions in the costs of product development. KBE applications can be effective means of automating repetitive engineering design tasks, enabling...

Imagery collected from space provides very useful information about our planet. Today there are many Earth Observation satellites in orbit which allow us to collect information which is used for environmental monitoring, response to catastrophes, surveillance and security, urban planning, economic analysis and many other applications. Thus,...

During the aircraft conceptual design phase, many different design options need to be explored and compared in a short time frame. To speed up this process, efforts have been made in the past decades to digitalize parts of the design process, with a focus on the automation of the repetitive and non-creative tasks inherent to the iterative design...

Many people consider analog electronic circuit design complex. This is because designers can achieve the desired performance of a circuit in many ways. Together, theoretical concepts, circuit topologies, electronic devices, their operating conditions, and the system's physical construction constitute an enormous design space in which it is easy...

In this paper, model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and discrete event simulation (DES) are combined to assess the performance of an offshore production system at an early stage. Various systems engineering tools are applied to an industrial case concerning the retrieval of deep-sea minerals, and a simulation engine is developed to...

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is considered an essential solution to reaching climate goals. The two main identified transport modes in CCS, pipelines and ships, are widely compared to each other in the literature. This research contributes to the literature about the evaluation of transportation modes in CCS chains, by determining to what...

van Heukelum, Harold (author)
Why do engineers often design what people don't want? And why do people often want solutions that are not feasible? This is because the current design and decision support optimisation methodologies are one-sided and ignore or fail to capture the dynamic interaction between people's preferences (desirability) and technical assets' performance ...

The need for relating stakeholders with requirements and the need for systems modeling are the main drivers for this thesis. Relating stakeholders with requirements is beneficial in order to balance the interests of all stakeholders associated with complex design projects. The variability in types of stakeholders and information abundance in...

CubeSats have risen in popularity since its first launch in the year 2003. The low mass, lower launch cost, lower development cost, possibility for piggyback with larger satellites and lower development time involved compared to larger satellites have opened them to be commercialised by private companies. In contrast to being used for...

Heavy-duty trucks (HDTs) are a significant contributor to global anthropogenic carbon emissions. In contrary to passenger cars, HDTs have to cope with decarbonization complications due to range and weight characteristics. Overhead catenary electric road systems (ERS-OC) can aid in decarbonizing this sector. Here, trucks are equipped with a...
