Dredging is an energy-intensive operation and, due to the nature of the process, there are large and rapid fluctuations in the power requirement. With the signing of the Paris Agreement, implementation of IMO 2020 and expansion of ECAs, the external pressures for the reduction of different emissions(CO2, SO<sub>x</sub>, PM, and/or NO<sub>x</sub>...

Estuaries are dynamic partially enclosed water bodies that are constantly or periodically influenced by the ocean and at least occasionally impacted by river discharge. This creates unique but fragile ecosystems that have to be managed with care in order to be recreationally, economically and ecologically valuable. One of the management issues...

The city of Amsterdam aims to supply buildings in the historic centre of Amsterdam with sustainable, reliable, and affordable heat for space heating. However, currently only hight temperature heat from biomass and waste incinerators can generate sufficient heat to supply this area. This solution does not lead to reducing the carbon emission...

This research has demonstrated the applicability of a DTS system to estimate the volumetric water content in saturated mud material. 2 samples of synthetically generated mud and 1 sample of natural mud from the port of Rotterdam were investigated, first by conventional methods and subsequently also with DTS. The system set-up and heating...

The extreme character of human activities and hard infrastructures in combination with the continuous variation of the climate has triggered an unprecedented fast rate of alterations in the environment. Hereafter the anthropogenically magnified climate change is increasing stress on ecosystems; especially interfaces such as coastal areas are in...

Fruit-frost during spring is one of the main causes of damage to the harvest of fruit in orchards. Various systems using different methods of preventing spring-frost are available on the market. To determine when these systems should be activated, the temperature in the orchard needs to be determined. In this project, a self-sustaining...

In temperature coefficient measurements of PV modules, a low level of agreement in results is observed between different laboratories, with deviations up to ±10% for Pmax temperature coefficients. Such deviations are considered as an uncertainty component in PV energy yield assessments, and are seen as financial risk by investors and purchasers....

<br/>To date, many fire accidents have occurred in tunnels all over the world. In the worst cases, there were catastrophic consequences with numerous human casualties and significant economic impacts. In the occurrence of such tunnel fires, besides the primary concern of saving human life, ensuring a certain level of structural integrity is also...

With green energy well on its way to becoming a necessity rather than a commodity it is vital to not only focus on improving the source of energy, but also the efficiency of the eventual energy usage. Vapor-compression based household refrigerators are one of the most used electrical appliances in the common household and consume electricity...

Energy storage systems are an emerging field of interest for the future of electrical grids. With the rapid growth of renewable but intermittent sources of electricity, energy storage systems can help smooth the variations, making the grid more stable and reducing the need for maintaining an overcapacity of power production infrastructure. Among...

High temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) can potentially solve the mismatch between heat supply and demand. It can provide a large scale seasonal heat storage solution. Thereby it enables an increase in full load hours of the base heat source, which can benefit project performance on both costs and emissions. However, the...

The temperature of drinking water is an important parameter, affecting physical, chemical, biological and aesthetic properties of the water. Currently, measurements exceeding the legal limit of 25ᵒC at the tap are exceptional. However, there are reasons to believe that the number of exceedances will increase due to climate change and...

The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources brings along the reduction of the supply temperature of the distribution heating networks, because renewable energy sources usually provide heat at lower temperatures. This master thesis specifically focuses on the buildings because it is uncertain which adaptations are necessary to...

In this thesis a parametric finite element model has been developed to predict the printability of concrete structures of arbitrary geometries. The model can be used to effectively explore design and process parameters to optimize printed objects. In addition, the model can be used to improve the reliability of the printing process, reduce the...

Satellite altimetry is an important technology used to measure sea level with high spatial and temporal resolution. Sentinel-3, a Copernicus satellite mission, offers three types of variables captured simultaneously for the first time; sea level (SSH), sea surface temperature (SST) and ocean colour (OC) variables. Sea level is measured with SAR...

The feasibility of subsurface imaging using diurnal temperature variations to determine and/or monitor tuber growth is investigated by creating a model capable of numerically simulating data. The model and the numerical simulations are discussed, as well as the use of effective inversion to determine the volumefraction of tubers.

Temperature threshold sensors facilitate temperature protection in microprocessors by indicating when the processor gets overheated or too cold. This thesis presents a BJT based temperature sensor with a programmable temperature threshold from -40°C to 150°C. Comparison of a CTAT voltage with a PTAT voltage gives a one-bit digital output when...

The thermal recovery efficiency of High Temperature Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (HT-ATES) systems can be limited due to the effect of buoyancy flow of the injected hot water. This thesis has researched the application of a Multiple Partially Penetrating Wells (MPPWs) as a well design method to counteract the effect of buoyancy flow and...

The demand for monitoring vacuum level at a high temperature is growing rapidly. For instance, in the semiconductor industry, the deposition process of many thin films is conducted in a high-temperature environment where the vacuum needs to be precisely monitored and controlled. Although a number of micro-fabricated vacuum gauges which show...
