This research focuses on identifying the most important stern shape aspects, with regard to resistance and propulsion power, of inland ships. Such information should help designers to determine which hull form aspect to adjust in case design requirements need them to do so. The information is obtained by firstly conducting a large series of CFD...

With the aim to limit the number of ineffective designs, this dissertation has investigated the impact of architectural design strategies on improving the energy performance of and thermal comfort in high-rise office buildings in temperate, sub-tropical and tropical climates. As the starting-point of this research, a comparative study between...

The current understanding of the transport phenomena involved in the operation of industrial fermenters is not sufficient. This is reflected by the limitations seen in their design and operation. A better insight in the local processes taking place (hydrodynamics, gas dispersion, mixing, microbial kinetics) is required to be able to make a step...

Ship manoeuvrability is fundamental for the navigation safety of ships. Furthermore, through the equipment used for manoeuvring, it also affects investment, operation, and maintenance cost of these ships. Ships are primarily designed from an economic point of view. To ensure and improve the maritime efficiency, research on inland vessel...

This research aims at developing a flexible and efficient (numerical) approach for estimating energy balance and heat storage of small shallow lakes in arid and semi-arid regions. To reach to this aim, some numerical methods and improvements in conventional methods were done. Optimizing the methods developed in this thesis is considered in order...

Dust has negative effects on the environmental conditions, human health as well as industrial equipment and processes. In this thesis, the transfer point of a belt conveyor as a bulk material handling system with a very high potential place for dust liberation is studied. This study is conducted based on experimental and numerical methods as...

Extending the weldability of novel materials, and improving the weld quality by tailoring weld microstructures are key factors to obtain the welding techniques demanded in the modern manufacturing industries. This can be done, for example, by feeding chemical elements from a consumable wire into the weld pool during welding. The mixing of...

One of the most important developments in the last centuries is the process of miniaturisation and understanding everything that it entails. For the physical sciences this meant the continuing discovery what matter is and how it behaves, while from a practical point of view it meant that more advanced medical, scientific, and consumer...

The Monolithic Stirrer Reactor (MSR) is a novel concept for heterogeneously catalyzed reactors and is presented as an alternative device to slurry reactors. It uses a modified stirrer on which structured catalyst supports (monoliths) are fixed to form permeable blades. The monoliths consist of small square parallel channels on which a layer of...

Loeven, G.J.A. (author)
When modeling physical systems, several sources of uncertainty are present. For example, variability in boundary conditions like free stream velocity or ambient pressure are always present. Furthermore, uncertainties in geometry arise from production tolerances, wear or unknown deformations under loading. Uncertainties in computational fluid...

Bos, F.M. (author)
Both biological and engineering scientist have always been intrigued by the flight of insects and birds. For a long time, the aerodynamic mechanism behind flapping insect flight was a complete mystery. Recently, several experimental and numerical flow visualisations were performed to investigate the aerodynamics around flapping wings. Flapping...

Carpentieri, G. (author)
This thesis presents a shape optimization framework for problems that are encountered routinely in Aerodynamic Design. The nature of the framework is numerical. Its focus is wide as different aspects of the shape optimization practice are treated, e.g., the solution of the flow equations, the sensitivity analysis and the parameterization of the...

The main goal of the project was the development of a plug flow reactor for the reduction of heavy metals (Cu2+) from industrial waste streams. Potential application of the reduction process inside The Netherlands lies in the IC and galvanic industry, where small waste streams containing aqueous copper exist. Outside The Netherlands, the process...
