In modern ASML machines optical components play an important role in the lithography process. EUV light is transported from the source to wafer by reflective optics. These mirrors are subjected to large thermal loading, as a large portion of the reflected light is absorbed in the mirror structure. The portion of the absorbed light is strongly...

Turbulence closure models will continue to be necessary in order to perform computationally affordable simulations in the foreseeable future. It is expected that Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) turbulence models will still be useful with the further development of the more accurate, but computationally expensive large eddy simulation (LES...

The main objective of the thesis is to analyze the potential for improving the aerodynamic efficiency of Siemens SGT5-2000E turbine section by optimizing the blade shapes. An adjoint-based shape optimization is implemented at the mid-span of the axial turbine. The optimization is performed, for the stator and the rotor individually, to reduce...

Even though negative effects on the use of crude oil have surfaced over the past years, our energy matrix still largely relies on this energy source. The production of oil, therefore, plays an important role in our society. Unfortunately, the process of oil production is highly uncertain. There are uncertainties associated on the production...

Renewable energy is becoming more and more important in today's society. Wind energy plays an important role in the production of renewable energy. Due to economic advantages, wind turbines are often sited close together, creating wind farms. As a result, the wind turbines in the farm become interconnected due to the wakes of the turbines. In...
