For many aerospace applications, the dominant airfoil self-noise source is Turbulent Boundary Layer Trailing Edge (TBL-TE) noise. The replacement of solid airfoil trailing edges with permeable materials proved to be an adequate noise reduction mean in previous studies. This thesis project contributes to the development of innovative permeable...

The aim of the Building with Nature (BwN) design philosophy is to improve on a traditional approach for infrastructural projects by utilising natural processes to create benefits for society and nature. In a fast-changing world where climate action is becoming increasingly important, there is need for an innovative approach in large...

Due to the removal of mangrove forests, coastal zones can suffer from severe erosion. One of the proposed solutions is the construction of permeable structures. This study aims to optimise the design of permeable (brushwood) structures in order to restore the sediment balance and encourage mangrove re-establishment on tropical mud coasts....

Administration of drugs can help in the recovery of the brain for example after a stroke. There are many available delivery routes such as intravenous injection or local injection in the brain. Whereas, the former encounters problems with systemic side effects, the latter requires multiple invasive brain surgery. Local drug administration could...

Foam is useful as an enhanced oil recovery method to reduce gas mobility and prevent gravity override to improve sweep efficiency. Foam is generated in porous media when exceeding a critical velocity and pressure gradient, that usually occur near to an injection well. There is the uncertainty of foam generation in the low-pressure gradient and...

Actuator self-heating limits achievable force and can cause unwanted structural deformations that adversely affect the accuracy in precision actuation systems. This is especially apparent in quasi-static applications that require the actuator to maintain a stable position over an extended period. As a solution, we propose the use of Tunable...

To develop high enthalpy geothermal systems in the Netherlands, reservoirs with a depth greater than 4000 m need to be targeted. The Lower Carboniferous limestone is proposed as the main target due to its depth and wide occurrence. To investigate the potential of this formation, the physical rock properties are studied in a variety of laboratory...

In the context of the energy transition, rapid development of the geothermal sector in the Netherlands has to take place. The first steps have been taken by establishing the Green Deal UDG between multiple industrial consortia, which agree to share knowledge on the research and use of ultra-deep geothermal energy . The Dinantian carbonates are...

Braiding rivers are characterised as highly dynamic, and experience annual morphological changes in plan- form. This dynamic nature of the river leads to navigational hindrance and risk of unstable bifurcation points where discharge distributions might switch. In pilot studies, porcupines have shown promising results in re- tarding the flow and...

Landfills have been indicated as a major methane source. Methane oxidation systems are `low technology' systems that can treat these methane emissions. Yet, methane oxidation systems are herein still sub-optimal and leave room for improvement. A numerical model was established to research the effective gas permeability ratio...

This research project attempts to improve the understanding of oil bank formation in Fontainebleau sandstone cores using a surfactant polymer (SP) EOR method. While oil bank formation is generally successful in longer length cores, it is elusive in short cores (<10cm). Core flooding experiments were performed in a specially designed setup...

Leakage of contaminants to the subsurface is a potential threat to groundwater and is a major problem with storage tanks. When the contaminant reaches the groundwater, it can be subjected to subsurface flow due to which a contaminant plume may form and the contaminant can spread. In this research, it was investigated if a horizontal layer of...

In recent years, offshore wind is becoming an increasingly growing market in Europe. Many resources are allocated towards ensuring its sustainable progress while one of the biggest uncertainties encountered lays in the offshore wind turbine's (OWT) foundations. In Europe, monopiles are the most widely adopted solution to found such structures in...

The Demak coastal area faces severe erosion problems. The main cause of the erosion of the coastline, which is at some places as high as 1.5 km of land, is the deforestation of the green belt of mangroves for the purpose of building fishponds. This has disturbed the delicate sediment balance in the area drastically. The BioManCO project aims to...

With an increased demand for renewable energy sources, geothermal developments have moved into the spotlight, including sedimentary structures. In the western part of the Netherlands, cretaceous sandstone bodies are already in use for the geothermal energy production. However, these reservoirs are generally producing water at temperatures less...

Geotechnical projects are successful when there is a lot of knowledge about the soil implemented in safe sustainable solutions. Existing models of hydraulic flow in soils need to be tested and confirmed again and again to make sure it’s trustworthy. With the use of three-layered samples containing 1mm and 3mm glass bead sizes a simplified model...

Land reclamations in deltaric areas provide space to meet the demand for a safe place to live and work. Sand, a traditional filling material in some locations is becoming scarcer. An alternative filling material is mud. Mud consists of clay, silt, sand, organic material, water and gas. Therefore, it is a versatile material and difficult to...

To determine the nominal diameter of armour rock for a rubble mound breakwater, the ‘Van der Meer’-formula is frequently used. It requires the so-called 'notional permeability' parameter P, which has been defined for a limited number of structures. Often designed structures deviate from these defined lay-outs. To determine the notional...

In this research a workflow for upscaling polymer flooding is developed. The workflow generates pseudorelative permeabilities (pseudos) to represent flow behaviour affected by fine scale heterogeneities in a coarse grid. With this workflow, a better estimate of the difference in production from a polymer flood compared to a water flood can be...
