Currently, one of the biggest challenges humanity faces is climate change. Reduction of fossil fuels is demanded in the future, hence an energy transition is required. A promising potential alternative fuel is the energy carrier NaBH<sub>4</sub> which contains hydrogen (H<sub>2</sub>). Handling and storing NaBH<sub>4</sub> provides challenges...

Cities all over the world are densifying because of population growth and urban popularity. By 2050, more than two thirds of the global population is expected to live in cities. (Zumelzu &amp; Herrman-Lunecke, 2021) This trend raises concerns about the influence of urban environments on mental well-being of residents, as city living has been...

In July 2021, an extraordinary precipitation led to severe flooding across Europe, particularly affecting South Limburg in the Netherlands, causing significant damage. In response, the Dutch government is seeking methods and new ways to mitigate the effects of future flash floods. Consequently, Waterschap Limburg (Limburg Water Board) initiated...

Race cars use aerodynamic downforce to reduce the lap times by increasing grip. Diffusers, upswept ramps located at the rear of a vehicle, are often used to enhance downforce. This investigation proposes a novel LPT facility featuring HFSB, LED illumination, and high-speed cameras to characterize the flow inside automotive diffusers. An RC car,...

Inspired by the leading-edge protuberances found on the flippers of humpback whales, tubercles have drawn significant interest for improving airfoil aerodynamic performance. In static conditions, airfoils with tubercles exhibit a softer onset of stall and increased lift in post-stall regime, though with a reduced maximum lift coefficient....

Coastal structures such as breakwaters can mitigate the erosive effects of sea level rise by protecting shorelines from wave impact. The Reef Enhancing Breakwater (REB) is a modular, permeable structure designed to dissipate wave energy and boost marine biodiversity by providing suitable habitats. This research investigates...

This study examines the complex interplay of utopian vision, embodied experience, and social change within the context of modernistic religious architecture. Using Manfred Tafuri's critique of architectural utopianism (1976) and Giorgio Agamben's potentiality theory (2004) as a framework, the thesis analyzes two seminal structures: Peter Zumthor...

Lower-limb exoskeletons often use trajectory-tracking control to define the device's motion and assistance level. One challenge lies in ensuring a smooth and comfortable interaction between the user and the robotic device by defining a reference trajectory. While recent research has focused on generating individualized gait patterns based on...

Tourists travelling by airplane contribute significantly to the CO2 emissions. The number of flights covering longer distances is rising and, consequently, implies more energy consumption. This leads to a greater environmental impact compared to flights covering shorter distances. Although people are expected to continue travelling, adjusting...

Night trains benefit society in multiple ways. They are environmentally friendly, improve the accessibility of regions and are space-effective. Understanding traveller's preferences enables night train operators to improve night train services and harness societal benefits better. This study conducted a stated preference survey with 1031...

Plastic is one of the major pollutants in the world and currently, more than 300 million tons of plastic are produced worldwide (Miandad et al. 2019). Since only 9.5% of plastic waste is being recycled, littering has caused a lot of non-recyclable plastics (NRP) that wander around damaging the environment and ending up in landfills, oceans and...

Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) is a versatile dynamic strain sensing method that has been adopted for a wide range of seismic applications. In DAS, optical fibres are interrogated and used as sensors, where a strain or strain-rate measurement is made along a specific length of the fibre, called the gauge length. Its main appeal is the...

This study reports on a survey on project managers' priorities. The survey used ISO 21500 as a scaffold to ask various respondents, like junior, experienced, and senior project managers, project sponsors, and students, to share their perceptions on the priorities for junior project managers. The respondent groups shared similar perceptions....

A modeling approach to simulate ice-induced vibrations of vertically sided offshore structures in ice tank experiments is presented. The technique combines replica modeling with the preservation of kinematics during ice-structure interaction. The technique was chosen based on the theoretical understanding that ice-induced vibrations are...

Difficulty in finding parking spaces and high parking fees discourage private car usage. Fully autonomous vehicles (AVs) capable of self-parking away from destinations will likely remove this barrier. Despite extensive survey-based research on AVs in recent years, existing literature has not sufficiently addressed the potential impact of new...
