Closure of Collar's triangle represents a complete framework of fluid-structure interactions (FSI) enabling the comprehensive understanding of different design elements compromising aeronautical applications. Experimental methods such as tomographic particle image velocimetry (Tomo-PIV) are proven to provide accurate acquisition opportunities of...

This study aims to improve estimates of NOx emission strengths by assimilation of TROPOMI satellite retrievals in the LOTOS-EUROS chemical transport model. Nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2) play a pivotal role in atmospheric chemistry, are an important source of air pollution and contribute to nitrogen deposition over vulnerable natural areas....

Predictions of the morphology of coastal areas are used to make decisions on coastal defence and nature conservation. To predict this morphology, simulations made by morphological models are used. To base decisions on this morphology predictions, we want the uncertainties in these predictions to be small. The goal of this research is to get a...

Due to their powerful approximation capabilities, artificial neural networks have seen a wide interest in various fields. A particular application is the use of an artificial neural network to predict solutions of the governing equations for fluid flow i.e. the Navier-Stokes equations. This is done by taking the space and time variables as the...

Experimental fluid dynamics and computational fluid dynamics have traditionally been treated as disparate fields of study. However, each field has its own unique set of advantages and disadvantages. Data assimilation is a field that can be used to leverage some of the advantages each field offers to help compensate mutual<br/>weaknesses. In this...

This thesis explores the usage of the particle filter as a data assimilation technique to estimate subsurface processes, such as reservoir volume change from space-geodetic PS-InSAR surface measurements. The specific research area is Groningen, where subsidence is induced by hydrocarbon and salt production.<br/>The satellite radar PS-InSAR...

Nowcasting, synonymous for short term (0-6h) forecasting of precipitation with high detail in terms of location, timing and intensity, is a dynamic field of research in weather forecasting that is relevant in mitigating the impact of severe weather events. Along with the development of remote sensing instruments, the first methods that were...

Polder areas as typical in the Netherlands require real time control on the water levels. Efficient pumping is a subject with increasing interest due to a required use of 20% green energy by 2020 set by the government. In 2010, the energy requirements already exceeded 175 GWh per year. For optimal control, water level predictions are important....

A petroleum production system is generally modelled based on the concept of nodal analysis, where the entire system is broken down into discrete elements such as near-well bore, tubing, surface choke and flow line. Operating flow rates and pressures can be estimated with a nodal analysis procedure by calculation of the intersection of...

Floods are a big problem for Jakarta; the capital of Indonesia is subsiding below mean sea level and floods will become more frequent. Flood protection and measures against subsidence are, therefore, of high importance to Jakarta’s government. One of the options they are studying is a great sea wall to regulate the water levels in Jakarta Bay....

This thesis discusses the applicability of assimilation of artificial SMAP data into a quasi steady state hydrological model to improve soil moisture estimates. The model used for this research was SIMGRO and since no real SMAP data were available at the time of the research, artificial SMAP data were used. The ensemble Kalman filter was used to...

Proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) is a well established model order reduction technique, however its efficiency is limited for advection dominated model. In this report, we explore a modified proper orthogonal decomposition procedure with patterns in time instead of the usual patterns in space. This modified procedure is more suitable for...

This thesis addresses the problem of permeability estimation of an oil reservoir using oil production data, a process known in the oil industry as computer-assisted history matching or data assimilation. Zilko (2012) compared the well-known Ensemble Kalman Filter method for data assimilation with the Non-Parametric Bayesian Beliefs Network (NPBN...

Hydraulic head data is frequently used for the calibration of groundwater flow models, usually with the main objective to improve the model performance. The hydraulic parameters in a groundwater flow model depend on the underlying geometry of the subsurface and the permeability of the soil. In the current calibration routines, the geometry is...

This work explores predictability in atmospheric flows. A study on forecasting is conducted in the Lorenz [1963] model using several Data Assimilation techniques. Methods of statistically combining model forecasts with observations for prediction are tested for their performance, which readily extend to higher dimensional systems and are oft...

Measurement rate limitations of time-resolved 3D-3C velocity measurements by tomographic PIV limit application of the technique to small measurement volumes and low speed flows (~10 m/s). To reduce the challenging repetition rate requirements historically set by the Nyquist criterion, in the present thesis work a novel method is proposed,...

The oil industry is at the backbone of global economy and, as natural resources are becoming scarce, there is a pressing need for efficient extraction strategies. This has led to the development of reservoir models and simulators, able to predict future field behaviour, when paired with accurate geological information. However, the data obtained...

The ecological state of the North Sea surface water can be indicated by ocean variables such as the Chlorophyll-a (Chlfa) concentration. Chlfa is the principal photosynthetic pigment and is common to all phytoplankton and can therefore be used as a measure of phytoplankton biomass. The GEM/BLOOM model developed at Deltares is a generic...

Increasingly, the phytoplankton blooms (algal blooms) become a public health concern and a worldwide ecological problem. The Generic ecological model (GEM) plays a very important role to assess ecological quality of the Dutch coastal waters and the southern North Sea. Algal blooms can also be predicted by the GEM model mainly through chlorophyll...
