Rapid developments in the field of hydrogen energy have prompted the need for safe and efficient hydrogen transportation and storage. Steels form the backbone of the current energy infrastructure and thus offer a fast and cost-effective solution. Their excellent mechanical properties are attributed to the underlying microstructure which...

Interdigitated back contact (IBC) architecture can yield among the highest silicon wafer-based solar cell conversion efficiencies. Since both polarities are realized on the rear side, there is a definite need for a patterning step. Some of the common patterning techniques involve photolithography, inkjet patterning, and laser ablation. This...

There is a drive to create an inclusive open data ecosystem, that includes public, private and academic open data [Loenen et al., 2021]. There is a lot of existing research in Open Government Data [Janssen et al., 2012; van Panhuis et al., 2014; Martin et al., 2013] and plethora of OGD in the Netherlands. Although the private sector produces a...

Barrier options, although highly liquid financial derivatives, present notable pricing challenges. In this thesis, we present a novel pricing approach for valuing continuously-monitored knock-out barrier options within the framework of stochastic volatility models.<br/><br/>The underlying process is firstly modelled under geometric Brownian...

The Mekong Delta in Vietnam is facing several challenges as a result of climate change. Among others, the effects include an increase in river discharge during the wet season, leading to river floods, and a decrease in river discharge during the dry season. The decrease in discharge results in a shortage of fresh water required for irrigation...

Coastal dunes serve as the primary defence mechanism against coastal storms for many coastal communities around the world. Vegetation plays a role in increasing dune resiliency as it enables dune growth, however not enough is known about its effects during storms. Research has shown that the current climate crisis will increase the intensity of...

Recent literature in real-time trajectory planning has proposed using Control Barrier Functions (CBFs) as collision constraints in Model Predictive Control (MPC) for efficient guidance, a concept referred to as MPC-CBF. This concept has been explored for both first and second-order CBFs. However, these approaches relied on an analytical...

Capillary barrier systems (CBSs) have been demonstrated to be effective in deviating infiltration in a landfill cover. However, their performance when combined with a cover soil optimised for methane oxidation had not been tested in the field yet. This study aimed to describe the water balance of a test field where such a configuration was built...
