Steel is an indispensable material for the sustainable maintenance and progress of modern civilization. Its versatility in terms of mechanical and thermal characteristics, corrosion resistance, raw material availability, energy consumption and recyclability provides a clear advantage in a fast-changing technological landscape. In order to adapt...

Compliant mechanisms consist of a monolithic body and obtain motion through elastic deformation. Multiple compliant flexure designs are known but their range of motion and load capacity are often limited. When considering rotational hinges, improving the operational range requires reducing the rotation stiffness while increasing normal stiffness...

Noise is a major issue in Urban Air Mobility vehicles, especially due to its operation in the urban environment. One of the major sources of noise is the rotor, and thus, there is a need to optimize the rotor design for aerodynamics and aeroacoustics. A possible technological solution is represented by Co-rotating rotors (i.e., two rotors...

Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWTs) are a very popular source of renewable energy, but these machines are often subject to off-design conditions owing to the unsteady nature of wind. Unsteady aerodynamic conditions have been associated with cyclic loading of turbine blades, which can have hugely detrimental effects on their operational life....

We investigated the sensitivity of fully focused SAR (FF-SAR) processing of Cryosat-2 altimeter data to Earth rotation. Earth’s rotation causes scatterers at varying cross-track locations to have a different relative velocity with respect to the satellite. This second-order effect of Earth rotation on the phase is currently not corrected for...

Rotating ring-like structures are very commonly used in civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering. Typical examples of such structures are components in turbomachinery, compliant gears, rolling tyres and flexible train wheels. At the micro-scale, rotating ring models find their applications in the field of ring gyroscopes, in which high...

Margins for cargo airlines that were already thin have been put further under pressure, which stresses the importance of operating a profitable schedule. Research on modelling passenger operations has proven that integrating different steps in the schedule planning process can yield a significant increase in profit. For cargo operations no...

We present a new approach for deep learning on surfaces, combining geometric convolutional networks with rotationally equivariant networks. Existing work either learns rotationally invariant filters, or learns filters in the tangent plane without correctly relating orientations between different tangent planes (orientation ambiguity). We propose...

In recent years, the energy transition has led to increasingly higher installed capacities of intermittent renewable energy sources. This has sparked the interest in power-to-fuel technology to store excess renewable energy in the chemical bonds of synthetic fuels. As a highly reactive, turn-key process, plasma-chemical conversion offers a...

The oceans, which cover nearly 70% of the earth’s surface, can be considered as an inexhaustible energy source for renewable electricity due to its size and predictability. One way to capture ocean energy is by harnessing the energy produced by waves at sea, by means of devices called wave energy converters (WECs).<br/><br/>Delft University of...

Vizcarro Carretero, Marc (author)
Meaningful dual-polarized radar estimations suitable for radar meteorology require a cross-polarization discrimination (XPD) and isolation (XPI) in excess of 30 dB to reach a differential reflectivity accuracy lower than 0.1 dB. A planar dual-polarized patch antenna array featuring low cross-polarization is proposed to meet these requirements...

After the failure of several large breakwaters in late 1970’s and early 1980’s where the role of rocking and breakage of armour became apparent, the importance of understanding this rocking phenomenon is given a great emphasis. Single layer randomly placed armour units are widely used in breakwater designs as they are more economical due to the...

Throughout the years, incremental iterative approaches have been shown to be excellent tools in describing the complex behaviour of structures under a wide range of circumstances. However, robustness issues arise for quasi-brittle structures due to the potential lost of convergence during the development of abrupt fracture mechanisms. In order...

This Bachelor thesis is on Covariant Emergent Gravity (CEG): a covariant formulation by Sabine Hossenfelder of the ideas of Erik Verlinde on gravity as an emergent force. In this work, the ideas of Erik Verlinde are presented as well as the field equations of CEG. The aim of this thesis is to find experimentally verifiable results for CEG. From...

Recently, Offshore Wind Turbines (OWT) have attracted great attention in an effort to make a shift from fossil-based energy sources towards an enhanced sustainable and renewable energy production. In order to achieve the renewables targets and reduce the cost of wind energy, OWTs are consistently increasing in size. Therefore, research has...

Some of the moons of the outer solar system harbour subsurface liquid oceans. Tidal dissipation plays an important role in preventing these oceans from freezing. In the past, most studies considered only tidal dissipation in the solid layers of these bodies (rock and ice). Recently, new studies considering tidal dissipation in the oceans of...

A new high-order model for in-plane vibrations of rotating rings is developed in this paper. The inner surface of the ring is connected to an immovable axis through an elastic foundation (distributed springs), whereas the outer surface is traction free. The developed model enables the dynamic analysis of the rings on stiff elastic foundation...

The Flettner rotor is attracting increasing attention as a viable technology for wind-assisted ship propulsion. Nonetheless, the influence of the Reynolds number on the aerodynamic performance of rotating cylinders is still unclear and under debate. The present study deals with a series of wind-tunnel experiments on a large-scale Flettner...

This work assesses the feasibility of the planar PIV technique to study the characteristics of a siloxane vapor D4. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) seeding particles were used to track the motion around a rotating disk in a low speed flow. Vector fields of natural convection (NC) and a superposition of NC and rotating flow were selected as exemplary...

Among the numerous fascinating properties of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), their rotational dynamics is perhaps one of the most intriguing, with clear consequences for adsorption and separation of molecules, as well as for optical and mechanical properties. A closer look at the rotational mobility in MOF linkers reveals that it is not only...
