Soft robots are characterized by compliant elements that introduce heightened kinematic complexity compared to their rigid counterparts. Such systems, with infinite degrees of freedom, are inherently underactuated, making precise real-time shape regulation a challenging task. Model-based controllers, utilizing tractable reduced-order modelling...

This paper presents the work on six single-stringer specimens manufactured using the card-sliding technique with non-crimp fabrics and adopting a Double-Double (DD) stacking sequence. These specimens, representative of sub-structure level components, are used to investigate post-buckling and failure in aerospace structures. Two specimens...

In evaporators, the distribution of the liquid and vapor phases among the channels is a convoluted problem, depending on a wide range of parameters. However, maldistribution causes important losses of performance. Due to their complexity, the accurate modeling of such two-phase flows is difficult to handle. Hence, experimental studies are...

Efficient experimental designs aim to maximise the information obtained from stated choice data to estimate discrete choice models' parameters statistically efficiently. Almost without exception efficient experimental designs assume that decision-makers use a Random Utility Maximisation (RUM) decision rule. When using such designs,...

Meta-heuristic optimisation algorithms are high-level procedures designed to discover near-optimal solutions to optimisation problems. These strategies can efficiently explore the design space of the problems; therefore, they perform well even when incomplete and scarce information is available. Such characteristics make them the ideal...

Wind farm control can play a key role in reducing the negative impact of wakes on wind turbine power production. The helix approach is a recent innovation in the field of wind farm control, which employs individual blade pitch control to induce a helical velocity profile in a wind turbine wake. This forced meandering of the wake has turned...

Military ground vehicles require protection against ballistic threats encountered in the battlefield. Traditionally used armour steel dramatically increases the weight of a vehicle, decreasing its mobility and hampering its capability of carrying payload. The development of new material and protection concepts, namely non-metallic armours, that...

Experimental aeroelasticity has been hindered by the intrusivity of measurement equipment and complexity of the experimental setups. Advancements in hardware development have been encouraging optical tracking techniques to replace cross correlation approaches in experimental aerodynamics. However, digital image correlation (DIC) is still the...

Post-earthquake structural damage shows that out-of-plane wall collapse is one of the most prevalent failure mechanisms in unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings. This issue is particularly critical in Groningen, a province located in the northern part of the Netherlands, where low-intensity ground shaking has occurred since 1991 due to gas...

Superconducting qubits have seen a tremendous progress in the last two decades, and yet they remain unable to extract quantum advantage for application scenarios. While algorithms like Shor’s demonstrate quantum advantage in theory, they do not seem to fit modern noisy quantum processors. Then, in order to achieve quantum advantage either modern...

Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac arrhythmia resulting from abnormal electrical conduction and impulse formation within the atria. To address this condition, a minimally invasive procedure called cardiac ablation is performed. Real-time visual feedback during this procedure plays a critical role in determining its success.<br/><br/>Photoacoustic...

Cracks that develop in concrete due to tensile stresses can lead to the corrosion of embedded reinforcing steel, which is a primary cause of concrete deterioration. It's common practice to introduce additional reinforcement to limit crack width in concrete. Another potential solution involves partially substituting concrete with alternative...

Wind-turbine noise can restrict the growing implementation of renewable energy sources and their application close to urban environments. The largest contributor to the noise of modern turbines is the scattering of the turbulent fluctuations at the blade trailing edge. This source of noise is directly correlated with the turbine’s extracted...

This thesis focuses on simulating the refuelling process for a liquid hydrogen-powered commercial aircraft. The liquid hydrogen is intended to flow from the refuelling truck, through a transfer line, into the aircraft’s tank using pressure feed. The numerical simulation was built upon an existing tank model, however it did not consider the...

The Paris Agreement seeks to limit global temperature rise and achieve climate neutrality by 2050. The UN's Sustainable Development Goal 7 emphasizes sustainable energy access, with smart grids playing a crucial role. These grids adapt to user behavior and interconnect various components. While smart grids address challenges in integrating...

In the Netherlands, the coastlands act as the principal protection against the sea. Without human interventions, the Dutch coast would be eroding due to an imbalance in the sediment budget of the coastal zone. The preferred coastal management strategy is sand nourishment, which have become larger in scale and more complex over the last 70 years....

Many of the high-performance portable electronics and electric vehicles (EVs) on the market depend on lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) as their primary energy source. If millions of EVs are to be manufactured each year, rigorous resource management for EV battery manufacturing, as well as a material- and energy efficient 3R system (reduce, re-use,...

Leading edge roughness is an important challenge for the wind energy industry as blades are permanently exposed to the damaging impacts of the environment. The contamination due to impact of insects, ice accretion and dust; as well as the erosion of the blade due to rain, debris and abrasive airborne particles increase roughness upon the surface...

Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) have been widely utilised in aircraft structures for their specific strength, durability and damage tolerance. Most aircraft structures, due to their size, require joining, and FMLs allow for a special type of joint called the splice, a unique but a lesser known joint.<br/><br/>The bulk of research into the splice...
