Background: The efficacy of a thrombectomy procedure for acute ischaemic stroke (AIS) is largely dependent on mechanical behaviour of thrombi and interactions with the thrombectomy device. Studies have examined clot analogues and evidence suggests that thrombus mechanical properties largely depend on composition, yet evidence based on thrombi...

As the penetration of offshore wind farms continues to increase in Western Europe, the North Sea in particular is becoming more densely populated by offshore wind farms. Wind turbine wakes have been a topic of great research in the field of wind energy for some time, however the industry now seeks an understanding of the in- fluence of the wake...

The majority of cardiovascular clinical events, which are the main causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide, are caused by atherosclerotic plaque rupture. This biomechanical event occurs when the local plaque stresses exceed its strength. The plaque stresses can be assessed by computational models to predict these events. Current approaches...

In this work, the effects of the addition of a cationic polymer ADIFLOC KD 451 (ADIPAP, France) in the performance of a decentralized Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor (AnMBR) pilot plant treating 1.5 m3 blackwater per day was studied. To this end, on-line sludge filterability characterizations were performed following the Delft Filtration...

Vibrations are experienced as unwanted dynamic motions and the industry takes a lot of care to reduce these motions to improve comfort and to increase vehicle component durability. The properties of rubber, being generally soft while showing large inherent damping, makes the material a perfect choice to use in vibration isolators. To minimize...

In order to improve the ability to design digital ICs for cryogenic temperatures, the objective of this work is to characterize the timing performance of standard cells in the TSMC 40nm technology at a temperature range between 4K and 300K. A design was made to perform automated on-chip characterization of standard cell propagation delay, that...

The proliferation of big-data processing platforms has already led to radically different system designs, such as MapReduce and the newer Spark. Understanding the workloads of such systems enables tuning and could foster new designs. However, whereas MapReduce workloads have been characterized extensively, relatively little public knowledge...

It has been reported that due to the rapid urbanization and economic growth the municipal solid waste (MSW) would double in volume from 1.3 billion tons per year (in 2012) annually by the end of 2025, challenging environmental and public health management worldwide. Given that, most of the MSW incineration (MSWI) bottom ash (BA) are disposed in...

The upper reservoir intervals of the Lower Jurassic Åre Formation in the Heidrun Field (Offshore mid-Norway) are very heterolithic and have the lowest oil recovery factor of the field despite significant amounts of remaining reserves. One of these reservoir zones is the formation Åre 6.2, which is mainly composed of tide-dominated heterolithic...

For the Internet of Things (IoT) applications that send a few bytes of sensor information infrequently, several long-range IoT technologies have been conceived. Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is one of them that stands out due to its extended coverage, high penetrability, and high reliability features. Envisaged<br/>long device lifetime and the...

The purpose of this thesis project is to design a new concept of sprinting prosthesis to enhance the acceleration phase performance of bilateral transtibial amputees (BTAs) competing in sprinting races. Amputee sprinters are hampered in the acceleration phase of a sprint race by the compliance of their prostheses. Increased contact times, and...

Due to their large number of high-precision, defect-prone manufacturing steps, integrated circuits (ICs) are susceptible to manufacturing defects and hence need to undergo electrical tests to weed out the defective parts and guarantee sufficient outgoing product quality to the customer. A key step in test development for digital logic ICs is...

Quantifying the anthropogenic impacts such as reservoir characterization is a big challenge in the field of water management. In this work, a computer graphics based geometric approach is presented which can predict the underlying topology of large-scale reservoirs. The proposed algorithm uses freely available, satellite based landscape data of...

Flows over complex terrains present uncertainties in wind farm power production and lifespan. Core to these uncertainties are wake dynamics, which lack adequate models and need further validation. In lieu of conducting field experiments, this study integrates scanning lidar measurements and large eddy simulation (LES) to characterize wakes in...

The normal distribution is a very important distribution in probability theory and statisticsand has a lot of unique properties and characterizations. In this report we look at the proof of two of these characterizations and create counterparts of a normal distribution on abstract spaces, such as vector spaces and groups, which we shall call...

A seismic survey acquired by the petroleum company Wintershall has been used for this study in order to characterize the fault and fractures present in the area using the latest seismic attribute techniques. With the use of the software OpendTect from dGB Earth Sciences and a methodology developed by (Jaglan Hardeep, 2016) and (Qayyum F, 2015)...

Compliant shell mechanisms utilize spatially curved thin-walled structures to transfer or transmit force, motion or energy through elastic deformation. To design with spatial mechanisms designers need non-linear characterization methods. This work introduces a comprehensive non-linear characterization method and framework which is experimentally...

Organ-on-Chips (OOCs) are micro-fabricated devices that combine micro-engineering with in-vitro cell culturing. This combination results in an in-vitro model that mimics the minimal functional unit of a human organ. OOC devices are expected to provide accurate and predictive screening tools that will eventually reduce false negatives and false...

Ever since its inception, graphene has been the subject of research in many parts of the<br/>world. This is due to its exceptional mechanical and electrical properties, which makes it<br/>ideal for NanoElectroMechanical (NEMS) devices. The inherent nature of NEMS devices,<br/>includes low damping, large amplitudes of oscillation, resonant...
