This work aims to predict the microstructure of recrystallized medium and high-entropy alloys (MEAs and HEAs) with a face-centered cubic structure, in particular the density of annealing twins and their thickness. Eight MEAs and five HEAs from the Cr-Mn-Fe-Co-Ni system are considered, which have been cast, homogenized, cold-worked and...

Call Graphs are a rich data source and form the foundation for advanced static analyses that can, for example, detect security vulnerabilities or dead code. This information is invaluable when it is immediately available, such as in the output of a build system. Call Graph generation is a whole-program analysis: not just the application, but...

This work seeks to expand on the research done previously by the WOODY group on the ability of vegetation as a form of wave damping. Specifically in this work, we are looking at pollard willow trees (Salix Alba) and the relationship between the motion of the object and the forces it can induce on the wave flow. This was done by testing a range...

The future will see an increase in missions headed for deep space. Advanced payloads will require higher data rates in more efficient spacecraft. Conventional space communication is facilitated through RF technology. Although it is very reliable, doubts arise on its future sustainability because of limited bandwidth, inefficiency and a saturated...

Ensuring sustainability in shipping extends beyond fuel choices to encompass the responsible use of materials in vessel construction and maintenance. Shifting from the prevailing 'take-make-dispose' model to a circular economy is crucial for enhancing sustainable waste reduction in the industry. Unlike consumer goods, current ship design...

The Airborne Wind Energy industry is evolving rapidly, aiming to establish its position among the major players in the conventional renewable energy sector. Since this industry is relatively young, it faces various challenges with scaling and integration into society. One aspect that can be improved is the design process of soft-wing kites. The...

In this thesis, the analogy between the special theory of relativity and the dynamics of a laborer is developed in the context of labor economics. At the basis of this analogy stands an individual laborer who cannot supply more than 24$hours of labor in a day. This represents the theoretical limit to the flow of labor services (velocity). We...

Amsterdam faces the challenge of maintaining a domain of 200 km historic quay walls, which is a vital part of the city’s historical landscape. Many quays are currently in poor condition and require renovation or replacement in the near future, significantly impacting the city. The quay walls can be up to 300 years old and their structure...

Aero engines are critical components in aviation, relying on thermodynamics to convert fuel energy into thrust. Maintenance of these engines constitutes a significant portion of operational costs. Gas path analysis (GPA) is essential for engine health management, relying on performance modeling to simulate engine operations accurately. This...

This research addresses how Ricanau Mofo, a low-lying village in Surinam, can become a more water-adaptive and sustainable village, while it faces land erosion, river bank erosion, changing rainfall patterns and sea level rise. It is urgent to intervene, as these issues are expected to increase in occurrence due to climate change. Constraints...

Playa Unión and Puerto Rawson are facing severe coastal erosion and increasingly the negative effects. Since the first half of the 20th century there have been signs of erosion, but also of sedimentation. However, the coastline in the project area is retreating over the years. The situation has recently been declared an emergency. Furthermore,...

Large parts of the Netherlands lay below mean sea level. An extensive network of flood protection measures is in place to prevent flooding. Periodic safety assessment and reinforcement are required to guarantee a resilient system. Currently, in the Netherlands, an extensive sea dike reinforcement program is underway to meet the safety standards...

While image-based georeferencing systems are widely available, none are designed for edge computing on board small satellites in space. Recent advances in autonomous data processing allow points of interest (POIs) to be identified in the captured images, enabling prioritization of data and reducing required downlink bandwidths. Directly...

Stream Processing Engines (SPEs) are called upon to help solve problems around big and volatile data, while satisfying the needs for near real-time processing. In order for such systems to be considered effective solutions to such problems at scale, efficient elasticity and non dataflow-disturbing reconfiguration operations within are a...

FRP is increasingly utilised in the built environment, following successful implementations in the aerospace and marine industry. However, it exhibits poor stiffness and stability compared to conventional materials such as steel, making it challenging to satisfy serviceability and comfort requirements. Optimising FRP to address these challenges...

Compliance through deterrence is the major criteria for the implementation of environmental laws. The study conducted by Jerry and Amy, (2023), showed that this compliance through deterrence was implemented only to not allow the violator to have an economic advantage over the non-violator. The data obtained in the study, indicated that...

The production of ethanol by the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae remains the process in industrial biotechnology with the largest product volume (ca. 100 million litres annually in 2022). Carbon losses occur due to the formation of biomass and glycerol, which can account for at least 8% of the product. Under anaerobic conditions, formation of...
