A lack of understanding of ecosystem-related projects and scarcity of natural capital reimbursement mechanisms leads to passive involvement and hesitation from the private sector when investing in nature. This study conducts a systematic literature review, furnishes a database of the relevant barriers and drivers for the private investment in...

Conventional battery models (e.g., Pseudo-2D model) were developed especially for particle-based battery electrodes and have limitations in addressing the newly-emerging fiber-based ones. This thesis proposes numerical tools for efficient property evaluation of fiber-based electrodes and for multiscale simulation of battery electrochemical...

In this research, we introduce and discuss an extension of max-plus linear systems, called max-plus linear parameter varying systems. In this extension, uncertainty is modelled as a varying parameter, making it possible to leverage non-linearities and non-max-plus terms within the model. Issues arise when the varying parameter is dependent on...

The city area is dense with business activities, public amenities, transport hubs and high-skilled people. Corporations prefer to be located in the city area to gain benefits from the location. However, annoyance occurs because of the real estate decisions of organisations as they neglect urban planning and context and results in inefficient,...

With the use of simulation models, predicting and optimising the correct dynamic behaviour and parameters of a propulsion system of a ship can be performed cheap and safe. However, capturing the right dynamic behaviour is very difficult. Besides, building simulation models and determining the correct parameters is a time consuming process. With...

In the coming 20 years, the city centre of Rotterdam will face a new wave of constructions, with the goal of densify the area with new 50.000 dwellings before the 2040, converting the city centre towards a more residential and international character. This up-coming densification of Rotterdam, led by the high-rise strategy developed by the...

Multimodal freight transport allows switching among different modes of transport to utilize transport facilities more efficiently. This paper proposes an approach on network modeling and robustness assessment for multimodal freight transport networks, where the nodes represent junctions, terminals and crossings, and the links represent...

A unique structural design was made for the glass façade of the Co-Creation Center building in Delft. The roof is completely carried by the glass fins. The fins are laterally stabilized by being included in the triple glazed façade. To certify the safety of the design full scale tests on the fins were done at Delft University of Technology. Due...

In a prior project, TNO has presented a low-cost way of finding fracture toughness of base materials for cleavage fracture. That method features a small-scale CTOD specimen, combined with simplified sensors, less fatigue pre-cracking, faster testing, and no need for a temperature chamber. This method has been extended to welds by considering...

Antiscalants are well known to prevent the precipitation of carbonate and sulphate scales of calcium in reverse osmosis (RO) applications, but according to literature their inhibitory ability against calcium phosphate is not clear. The objective of this study was to investigate if antiscalants, without acid addition, can prevent calcium...

Many of the policies that were put into place during the Covid-19 pandemic had a common goal: to flatten the curve of the number of infected people so that its peak remains under a critical threshold. This letter considers the challenge of engineering a strategy that enforces such a goal using control theory. We introduce a simple formulation...

Light-driven biocatalytic processes are notoriously hampered by poor penetration of light into the turbid reaction media. In this study, wirelessly powered light-emitting diodes are found to represent an efficient and scalable approach for process intensification of the photobiosynthetic production of diesel alkanes from renewable fatty acids...

Future national electricity, heating, cooling and transport systems need to reach zero emissions. Significant numbers of back-up power plants as well as large-scale energy storage capacity are required to guarantee the reliability of energy supply in 100 percent renewable energy systems. Electricity can be partially converted into hydrogen,...

Conversion of organic waste and wastewater to polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) offers a potential to recover valuable resources from organic waste. Microbial community-based PHA production systems have been successfully applied in the last decade at lab- and pilot-scales, with a total of 19 pilot installations reported in the scientific...

In the search for new large-scale battery technologies that are cheap, safe and durable, in this research it is found that the state of the art semi-solid redox flow battery (“SSRFB”) technology shows perspective. Therefore, a novel, cheap and safe aqueous SSRFB design is introduced based on iron- and manganese hydroxide materials. This design...

Though NanoSats are becoming increasingly capable of featuring active payloads, and acquiring inertial data at arcsec level precision; the payload operational duty-cycle largely remains limited by its data downlink capabilities. NanoSat laser communication terminal (LCT) promises 1 Gbps data downlink capabilities. However, LEO to ground free...

The research aims to provide an understanding of an urbanizing delta in which different scales, times, and domains are related to each other; and to examine how this understanding can be used in a planning and design process in a rapidly urbanizing delta. A mapping method is developed according to the key notions in the understanding of urban...

Ventilation events are the result of masses of air being transported from the water surface along the hull, through the propeller plane. Previous research in literature has shown that ventilation induces large and sudden variations of the load on the propeller. The response of the propulsion system had not been documented before. This is a...

In the Waal bed degradation occurs, which is mainly induced by a large number of river regulations measures done in the past. Rijkswaterstaat develops possible measures and new techniques to stop riverbed erosion and/or mitigate the negative effects. One of the possible new techniques to reduce riverbed erosion locally is groyne field...

The use of large-scale particle image velocimetry (PIV) is proposed for cycling aerodynamic study to advance the general understanding of the flow around the rider and the bike, leading to new strategies for cycling aerodynamic drag reduction in the future. The investigation concentrates on the measurement of the wake velocity and its relation...
