Hengelmolen, Maren (author)
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations for residential areas are becoming increasingly important as the urban population keeps growing and extreme weather conditions due to climate change are becoming more prevalent. Since CFD simulations simulate and visualise fluid flows, users can analyse and predict air flows in urban environments,...

In recent years, quantum Boltzmann methods have gained more and more interest as they might provide a viable path toward solving fluid dynamics problems on quantum computers once this emerging compute technology has matured and fault-tolerant many-qubit systems become available. The major challenge in developing a start-to-end quantum...

Due to increasing environmental concerns and global energy demand, the development of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is on the rise. FOWTs offer a promising solution to expand wind farm deployment into deeper waters with abundant wind resources. However, their harsh operating conditions and lower maturity level compared to fixed...

The gas dynamics of single-phase nonreacting fluids whose thermodynamic states are close to vapor-liquid saturation, close to the vapor-liquid critical point, or in supercritical conditions differs quantitatively and qualitatively from the textbook gas dynamics of dilute, ideal gases. Due to nonideal fluid thermodynamic properties,...

Aortic valve disease is often treated with bioprosthetic valves. An alternative treatment is aortic valve neocuspidization which is a relatively new reparative procedure whereby the three aortic cusps are replaced with patient pericardium or bovine tissues. Recent research indicates that aortic blood flow is disturbed, and turbulence effects...

The treatment for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease relies on forced inhalation of drug particles. Their distribution is essential for maximizing the outcomes. Patient-specific computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations can be used to optimize these therapies. In this regard, this study focuses on creating a parametric...

BACKGROUND: Kidney disease is the most important predictor of death in patients with a Fontan circulation, yet its clinical and hemodynamic correlates have not been well established. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 53 ambulatory patients with a Fontan circulation (median age, 16.2 years, 52.8% male patients) underwent advanced cardiovascular...

HIsarna is a new and breakthrough smelting reduction technology for producing liquid hot metal for steelmaking directly from iron ores. Compared to the conventional blast furnace route, HIsarna achieves a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions by eliminating coking and the need for iron ore agglomeration processes such as sintering and pelletizing and...

The importance of aerodynamic efficiency in the cycling sport is well known. Simple calculations demonstrate the considerable impact of just a few percentages in drag savings on the outcome of a competition where the margins can be incredibly small. Achieving a drag reduction can, however, be challenging as the flow topology of a cyclist is...

Unsteady numerical simulation has been proven to be an essential tool for research. The quality of the results can be improved by using mesh adaptation. Mesh adaptation uses error indicators to refine the mesh in regions with high errors. The error indicators used are output errors with the most accurate output error estimation method being...

This thesis describes methods and first analyses to study the shape and motion of a large school of approximately 2000 Harengula clupeola (false herring) in three-dimensional space. This school of fish was present at the large-scale and publicly accessible ocean aquarium of the Rotterdam zoo, in the Netherlands known as Diergaarde Blijdorp, from...

This thesis presents an energy-conservative data-driven approach in modelling the closure terms of the Navier-Stokes equations casted through the Variational Multiscale (VMS) framework. For context, the VMS framework is applied in designing stabilised finite element methods for multiscale phenomena in which stability is not guaranteed. Under...

Metal additive manufacturing has enabled great diversity and design freedom in heat exchanger design. However, these benefits cannot be adequately realised without optimizing its ancillary components as well, specifically the inlet and outlet manifolds. Optimizing the manifolds can significantly improve the flow distribution inside the heat...

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of indoor air quality in preventing the spread of airborne transmissive diseases. Offices are some of the largest hotspots for disease transmission. To address this issue, a joint venture between FLEX/design and Euromate, called ‘X-Lair,’ aims to design an air purifier specifically targeting...

Aortic aneurysm, a balloon-like enlargement of the healthy artery, is a cardiovascular disease with one of the highest mortality rates. These numbers are due to the usual late diagnosis of the aneurysm, which is often asymptomatic until a fatal event occurs. Such an event can progress to aortic dissection or rupture. Due to the urgent nature of...

The validity of current prediction methods for the formation of contrails from modern turbofan engines is investigated. A modelling framework has been developed for estimating the impact of engine configurations on contrail formation by analyzing the physics of the mixing between core and bypass flow. Within this framework, Engine Performance...
