Quantum Batteries (QBs) are quantum-mechanical devices for energy storage, gaining interest due to a potential quantum advantage in power. Recently, the first experimental implementations of QBs were realised. This study characterises the superconducting transmon qubits of Starmon-5 as QBs using the Quantum Inspire platform. In addition to...

Despite The Hague's historically mild climate, it is experiencing rising temperatures and more frequent heatwaves, resulting in a growing demand for space cooling. However, there is a significant gap in research and sustainable policies to address this demand in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. While studies have examined the...

With the rapid growing availability of metagenome assembled genomes (MAGs) and associated metabolic models, the identification of metabolic potential in individual community members has become possible. However, the field still lacks an unbiassed systematic evaluation of the generated metagenomic information to uncover not only metabolic...

The gas dynamics of single-phase nonreacting fluids whose thermodynamic states are close to vapor-liquid saturation, close to the vapor-liquid critical point, or in supercritical conditions differs quantitatively and qualitatively from the textbook gas dynamics of dilute, ideal gases. Due to nonideal fluid thermodynamic properties,...

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 study of compressible fluid dynamics has traditionally focused on flows of gases whose thermodynamic properties are related according to the ideal-gas law. In this context, for a long time, it has been demonstrated that shock waves in gases are exclusively of the compressive type, characterized by a discontinuity across which the fluid...

This design report discusses the embodiment design of a more efficient frying pan for gas powered stoves in commercial kitchens, to see if a potential market entry is feasible, viable and desirable. Conventional pans have a thermal efficiency of roughly 25%. This means that only 25% of the heat coming from the combusted gas is used for cooking....

HMF (5-hydroxymethylfurfural) is one of the bio renewable materials that can be used as an important platform chemical to produce biofuel and various chemical products. The main application of HMF in the chemical industry is a platform chemical for the production of plant-based polyethylene terephthalate (PET). HMF is produced through hexose...

In recent years, considerable attention has been given to the utilization of municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) bottom ash as a mineral resource for construction materials. MSWI bottom ash is the primary residue discharged after incinerating municipal solid waste. The generation of MSWI bottom ash is increasing dramatically with the wide...

This study is part of an ongoing research project, which aims to increase the physical understanding of the plume formation on Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus. The experimental setup presented in this study is the third iteration of the physical models aiming to recreate the main plume characteristics, where in this study the effects of the channel...

The advancements in digital twins when combined with the use of the machine learning tools can facilitate the effective health assessment and diagnostics of safety critical systems. This study aims at developing a framework to address the health assessment of marine engines utilising digital twins based on first-principles. This framework...

Isentropic processes in thermodynamics are fundamental to our understanding of numerous physical phenomena across different scientific and engineering fields. They provide a theoretical reference case for the evaluation of real thermodynamic processes and observations. Yet, as analytical relations for isentropic transformations in gas dynamics...

An increasing demand in the marine industry to reduce emissions led to investigations into more efficient power conversion using fuels with sustainable production pathways. Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) are under consideration for long-range shipping, because of its high efficiency, low pollutant emissions, and fuel flexibility. SOFC systems...

Over the last decades, many diffuse-interface Navier-Stokes Cahn-Hilliard (NSCH) models with non-matching densities have appeared in the literature. These models claim to describe the same physical phenomena, yet they are distinct from one another. The overarching objective of this work is to bring all of these models together by laying down...

Thermodynamic parameters of chloride and sulfate intercalated hydrotalcites were deduced. The phase evolutions in alkali‑activated slag cement upon only sodium chloride or only magnesium sulfate attack and combined attack of those two salts were investigated via thermodynamic modelling. Friedel's salt was predicted to form under sodium...

In this work, we present a unified framework for the simulation of CO<sub>2</sub> sequestration problems at various time and space scales. The parametrization technique utilizes thermodynamic state-dependent operators expressing the governing equations for the thermal-compositional-reactive system to solve the nonlinear problem. This approach...

The interactions of iodine and caesium in UO<sub>2</sub> have been investigated. For this purpose, implanted UO<sub>2</sub> samples were thermally treated (4h at 900°C or 1h at 1200°C) under controlled atmosphere (0.03% H<sub>2</sub>O/H<sub>2</sub>) and then characterized by several experimental techniques for their structural and chemical...

Higher alcohol (HA) synthesis via the hydrogenation of CO<sub>2</sub> constitutes a relatively new and exciting field of research that has the potential to help towards the de-carbonization of the energy sector. The process poses formidable challenges, as it demands the formation of at least one C-C bond, when CO<sub>2</sub> is...

A primary concern towards achieving a robust and sustainable water-splitting strategy consists in the development and designing of non-precious hydrogen evolution electrocatalysts capable of operating at relatively high current densities. In the present density functional theory (DFT) based study, we explored and identified α-NbB<sub>2</sub>...
