A considerable contribution to the greenhouse effect originates from landfills. This contribution originates from the degeneration of waste in the landfill. The gas which is created during the degeneration consists of 40 to 60% methane. One mole of methane has a global warming potential which is 28 times higher than that of carbon dioxide....

Hot-dip galvanizing is a well-known process to increase the corrosion resistance of steel. As a by-product dross is formed in the Zn-bath. The dross particles are composed of Fe, Al and Zn in the form of Fe2Al5Znx and interact with the hardware that is submerged in the Zn-bath and eventually accumulate on the surface of the hardware. This...

In the hemiparetic stroke, functional recovery of paretic limb may occur with the reorganization of neural networks in the brain. Electroencephalography (EEG), with an excellent temporal resolution, can be used to reveal functional changes in the brain following a stroke. This study assessed a novel multimodal brain imaging technique namely...

The growing amount of plastic pollution in the oceans is worldwide a huge problem. There is an increasing amount of projects that try to clean up this pollution. To remove the pollution efficiently, it is useful to know how plastic litter moves, degrades and sinks. Models are being developed that can describe what happens with plastic in the...

In the Netherlands Dutch pension funds perform the feasibility test. This test is originally designed for DB pension schemes. Nowadays DC pension schemes are getting a more prominent role in the Dutch pension system. Therefore an improved design of the feasibility test for DC pension schemes would be beneficial. In this research we search for a...

Large scale stationary energy storage is becoming the need of the hour as the world transitions to a renewable economy. For this, there is a necessity of higher energy density batteries that can cope well both in storing excess energy and minimizing fluctuations on the grid. Solid polymer electrolyte batteries can be extremely safe and reduce...

Among women, breast cancer has the highest incidence rate of all types of cancer worldwide. For 80% of these patients, a treatment option is the surgical procedure known as breast conserving surgery (BCS). Re-excision is required in 10-60% of these patients, as positive margins are encountered post-operatively, showing the need of an intra...

We focused on analysis of long-term medication influenced white matter tracts based on diffusion-weighted MRI brain images of patients with ADHD disorder. We applied a framework of consistent model selection with Tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS) to give proper and consistent modelling of fiber-crossing in white matter. An orientation atlas...

A comparative study of three different membrane electrode assemblies for electrochemical CO2 reduction is performed in a flowcell setup utilizing gaseous CO2 as a reagent. The membrane electrode assembly consists of a bipolar or exchange membrane, an Ag-mesh catalyst and a gas diffusion layer. The counterreaction occurring on the opposite of the...

The TU Delft and the LUMC are creating a low-field MRI scanner to use in third world countries. This type of MRI scanner has many advantages, but a downside is the amount of noise in the obtained images. A way to reduce noise is diffusion filtering. This thesis discusses the theory of some linear and nonlinear diffusion filtering methods and...

Plasma membrane dynamics have become increasingly of interest due to recent discoveries on anomalous lipid diffusion in live cells. A specific characteristic has been found in the exponential relation between lateral lipid diffusion and temperature. The finding was reported to be surprising as a linear dependence was theoretically predicted. In...

In the development of the lighting practice, progress has been made to eliminate bad lighting and to contribute to a visual comfortable scene. Metrics, and subsequent recommendations, have been established to provide uniform horizontal illuminance. In addition, performance-based metrics are developed. For example, various lighting levels for...

The two performance areas “security” and “efficiency” in airport security operations cannot be analyzed apart from each other, since influencing one has a large impact on the other. In this research agent-based modelling is used to analyze dynamic relations and trade-offs between security and efficiency within airport security operations....

The idea of the internet of things (IoT) states that devices with embedded electronics will outnumber the devices operated by humans. All those "things" will require connectivity to exchange information gathered from processed sensor data. A large part of the data will be sent through the air, such that mobile devices can be deployed without a...
