A fully coupled model for mass and heat transport, mechanics, and chemical reactions with trapping is proposed. It is rooted in non-equilibrium rational thermodynamics and assumes that displacements and strains are small. Balance laws for mass, linear and angular momentum, energy, and entropy are stated. Thermodynamic restrictions are...

Over the last 50 years, the global airline industry has seen resilient growth in the demand for passenger travel; this trend is expected to continue in the coming decades. With kerosene being the predominant source used as jet fuel, this increase in air traffic is expected to result in the depletion of non-renewable fossil fuels and undesired...

Aircraft manufacturers are increasingly exploring emission-free flight or emission reduction for larger passenger aircraft. The low energy density of state-of-the-art battery technology limits the application to small, electric, fixed wing aircraft up to a flight time of approximately one hour. To overcome these limits, a combination of fuel...

Electric mobility is considered as the next step towards sustainable mobility. Within the Netherlands, as one of the leading countries if it comes to electric mobility, the market share of battery electric vehicles is still limited to 0,2 percent. Many studies are executed on consumer behaviour regarding electric vehicles. But no studies are...

The rapid increase in the adoption of Solar Home Systems (SHS) in recent times hopes to ameliorate the global problem of energy poverty. The battery is a vital but usually the most expensive part of an SHS; owing to the least lifetime among other SHS components, it is also the first to fail. Estimating battery lifetime is a critical task for...

Battery electric and fuel cell electric vehicles have the potential to cover the shortage in renewable power generation by engaging in vehicle-to-grid. However, the vehicle-to-grid service cannot completely make up for the intermittent nature of renewables. Deterministic models were used to compute the extent to which the vehicles can engage in...
