In this thesis, it was examined how high-frequency operational data collected from an automated recording system, can be used to develop a vessel’s performance model. Both the traditional and the Machine Learning (ML) approach were examined. In the traditional approach, every component of the propulsion plant was examined separately, while...

This research has compared three different market mechanisms in a quantitative way. The influences of these market mechanisms on the heating system were investigated for CO2 emissions, consumer price and producer surplus. In addition, the influences of investment decisions and price and consumption growth scenarios were tested. The research...

Deep-sea mining is becoming more popular. The Atlantis II Deep is a deep sea mining field of metalliferous muds in the Red Sea. This field could be exploited by transporting the sediments through a pipeline laid from shore onto the sea bed to the field. From determined concentrations with their shear stress-shear rate relation, parameters for...

The goal of this project is to find a way to get people to consume less, by changing what they do to improve their subjective well-being. It was found that the main issue that needed tackling is the fact that, currently, people are addicted to consumption - they depend on consumption for their happiness. The best way to remedy this would be to...

The global environmental issues are becoming more and more pressing. These issues ask for not only changes on a product-level but also on a system-level (Ceshin, 2013). One of the potential solutions can be to facilitate more sustainable consumption. Sustainable consumption patterns can potentially be created by product-service systems (PSSs)....

Morphing winglets are devices that can improve aircraft aerodynamic efficiency and also be used as load alleviation devices. However, this implementation comes with a weight penalty due to the morphing mechanisms. In the present study two morphing winglet cases are tested, where due to mechanisms compatibilities, only a variable Cant-Span...

Our world population is increasing significantly resulting in a growing energy demand while the earth is running out if natural resources. This expanded energy demand directly affects climate change. Hence, there is an urgent need to move towards urban sustainability and to reduce our energy consumption. This calls upon a behavioral change in...

The need for water, energy, and food resources is central to human being. Demand of these resources will increase as global population increases. By 2050 it is expected that combination of population growth and economic development will lead to 50% increase of global water and food demand, while energy demand will be doubled. Addressing...

As a consequence of globalization and developing economies becoming more mature, airports face increasing passenger numbers. It is the case that large airports are energy intensive buildings with an electricity consumption ranging between 100 - 300 GWh anually. Within ATBs (Airport Terminal Buildings) the BHS (Baggage Handling System) is...

Reefers are refrigerated containers commonly used for transporting perishable goods such as meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit. Due to the growth in reefer usage, energy consumption of reefers at container terminals grows significantly to 40% of the total energy consumption at terminals. When reefers are connected to the electricity grid, peaks...

Over the course of the past centuries, humanity’s influence on the Earth’s atmosphere and climate system has become so significant as to induce geophysical feedback effects, specifically in the form of a self-reinforcing process of global warming. In order to contain the global warming and prevent the expected impacts of climate change from...

Food waste is the fastest growing issue of our time. Countries in the EU discard an estimated 89 million tons of food every year. Worse, the food waste will increase to about 126 million tons in 2020 if we do not take action (European Union Committee, 2014). Moreover, most countries are burying food waste in the landfills. This manner of...
