Climate change is a pressing issue. Hydrogen aircraft are an excellent alternative to current kerosene aircraft, and appear to be the most viable long-term solution for net-zero flight. One of the main challenges for hydrogen aircraft is to sustain a low boil-off rate. This research explores the solution of active cooling of the LH2 mixture in...

Hydrogen is one of aviation's most promising fuel alternatives in the coming years. However, to store it, a large and light vessel is needed. <br/><br/>The solution to this problem can be the carbon fibre fuel tank. Composite structures provide significant weight savings, which is crucial in this application. However, despite its superior...

This thesis addresses a critical challenge in the field of renewable energy, focusing on the efficient utilization of Photovoltaic-thermal (PVT) systems. Despite their promising role in sustainable energy production, PVT systems often grapple with excess heat generation, impacting their efficiency and longevity. The primary objective of this...

Earthquake-triggered fire domino scenarios (E-FDSs) arise frequently from the interaction between earthquakes and chemical installations, resulting in catastrophic multi-hazard coupling events. The complicated mutually amplified phenomena between natural disasters and chemical accidents significantly aggravates the escalation of domino...

A modeling approach to simulate ice-induced vibrations of vertically sided offshore structures in ice tank experiments is presented. The technique combines replica modeling with the preservation of kinematics during ice-structure interaction. The technique was chosen based on the theoretical understanding that ice-induced vibrations are...

An earthquake-triggered fire domino scenario (E-FDS) is an example of a typical multi-hazard coupling event. The seismic damage can affect the fire resistance of engineering structures, leading to significant mutually amplified phenomena. In this work, a two-stage experimental program is designed to expound the earthquake-fire coupling...

Fire-induced domino effect is one of the main threats to hazardous material storage tanks, and many attempts have been conducted to assess the vulnerability of storage tanks exposed to fire to evaluate domino effect risk. However, past research ignored the influence of wind load on the thermal buckling behavior of storage tanks exposed to...

Reducing power consumption is becoming increasingly important for the sustainability of the communication industry because it is expected to consume a significant portion of the global electricity in the face of the exponentially increasing demands on the volume and rate of data transmission. As the scope narrows to the individual wireless...

Presented works describe a novel approach to assess mixing in a stirred vessel using light-based tomography. The study is driven by key research questions: What are the obstacles in three-dimensional dynamic tracer distribution reconstruction? How should the experimental equipment be constructed to obtain the best possible data from three...

Liquid storage tanks play a vital role in the modern chemical process industry (CPI). The strong ground motion caused by large-scale earthquakes may easily impose severe structural damage on liquid storage tanks, leading to a series of catastrophic cascaded events. The seismic damage estimation of liquid storage tanks is a challenging problem,...

A key challenge in the energy transition for Inland Water Transport is the functional design of bunker networks and first-order dimensioning of individual bunker stations. A fundamental ingredient for this is an improved understanding of how upstream energy supply (‘well-to-bunker-station’) and downstream demand (‘bunker-station-to-tank’) may...

In order to identify and clarify the association between the factors leading to accidents in a petrochemical tank area, this study analyzes investigation reports of 212 petrochemical tank farm accidents and combines this with the “association rule” mining and science related to complex networks. The main risk factors are determined and a risk...

We investigated the applicability of Silica encapsulated, superparamagnetic DNA particles (SiDNAmag) in determining aquifer hydraulic parameters at different ionic strengths (1 mM, 5 mM, and 20 mM phosphate buffer) of injection suspension. Thereto, in a homogeneous, unconsolidated sand tank we pulse - injected two uniquely sequenced SiDNAmag...

In large-scale syngas fermentation, strong gradients in dissolved gas (CO, H<sub>2</sub>) concentrations are very likely to occur due to locally varying mass transfer and convection rates. Using Euler-Lagrangian CFD simulations, we analyzed these gradients in an industrial-scale external-loop gas-lift reactor (EL-GLR) for a wide range of...

To reduce the climate change impact of shipping and retain compliance with increasingly strict emission regulations, alternative fuels are required. Methanol is expected to be one of the renewable alternatives. However, it evaporates easily compared to for example Diesel and its vapours are toxic and flammable. Regulations prescribe the use of...

The aviation industry has grown at a steady rate of 5% per year over the past decades and is projected to continue this growth over the coming years. In sharp contrast stands the increasing concern with the reduction of the environmental impact of flying in the short term. To this end, a fuselage boundary layer ingesting propulsor powered using...

This article proposes a method to quantify, first, the probability of occurrence of green water and, second, the expected maximum pressures during green water events using their statistical distribution for ships at forward speed. A large green water data set which represents 1945 hours of continuous sailing on full scale with different sea...

Ice-induced vibrations of offshore wind turbines on monopile foundations were investigated experimentally at the Aalto Ice Tank. A real-time hybrid test setup was developed allowing to accurately simulate the motion of a wind turbine in interaction with ice, incorporating the multi-modal aspects of the interaction and the effect of simultaneous...

The immense pressure to decarbonise the maritime industry has led to the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) uptake as a marine fuel and the LNG fuelled ships design. As LNG is stored in cryogenic conditions, the heat ingress from the ambient causes the boil-off gas (BOG) production, which, if not controlled, results in the tank overpressure with...
