Dense suspension flows, both in the natural environment and industrial settings, are complex phenomena with significant implications. From rivers shaping landscapes to industrial processes involving slurry transport, these flows hold a prominent position in numerous sectors. This thesis delves into a specific facet of these intricate flows:...

Pletzer, Johannes (author)
At speeds roughly between five and ten thousand km/h, hypersonic aircraft offer the promise of an extremely fast means of transport. Growing concerns about climate warming, however, direct attention to sustainability. This thesis focuses on atmospheric composition and radiation changes by considering a range of individual hypersonic aircraft...

When considering air quality, notably in South America, it seems that we are falling behind more developed regions in exacerbating the issue. This shortfall serves not just as observation, but as a warning, as air quality problems here are rapidly escalating. Nevertheless, by examining how other countries have addressed similar issues, we can...

A large part of condensed matter physics concerns itself with understanding the behaviour of electrons in solids and finding ways to control them. However, in mesoscopic systems (i.e., systems with nanometer to micrometre scale), the behaviour of electrons is difficult to predict through the Schrödinger equation. Instead, it is often more...

As one of the largest innovation hubs in the world, the Brainport Eindhoven region experiences significant economic and population growth. However, with this success comes a challenge: the transportation infrastructure is increasingly strained, with new housing developments and population growth escalating the transport demand. The economic...

The city of Rotterdam is globally recognized for its port and its international trading. The city is an important key player for the imports and exports of the European trading market. For this reason, many, small and large, companies have decided to establish their business in or just outside the city. These companies can not operate without...

Travelling to work is one of the essential activities in individuals’ daily lives. However, commuters who depend on public transport often face significant challenges in accessing job opportunities, resulting in transport-related social exclusion risks. In recent years, shared mobility services have gained popularity as a solution, offering...

Global passenger air traffic has doubled in the 13 years prior to 2019, and is expected to double again over the next 20 years or so. Growing demand for aviation is met by a corresponding increase in jet fuel being burned by aircraft, releasing multiple pollutants into the atmosphere. Besides disturbing the Earth’s radiative balance, these...

Freight transport is a crucial component of our society and economy. However, achieving sustainability in this sector is complex, due to a lack of incentives among stakeholders. The heavy-duty road transport sector is struggling to meet European emission standards. To address this issue, a research study examined the impact of combining Battery...

This paper proposes a shared multi-stakeholder PV system for traction substations and nearby residential loads to reduce the need for storage, AC grid exchange, and curtailment. The residential stakeholders offer both the base electrical load and the solar panels installation space needed by the traction stakeholder, who brings the peak load...

Transitioning to electric motorcycles (EMs) can reduce dependence on carbon-based fuels, mitigate air pollution, and lower greenhouse gas emissions in countries where motorcycles dominate the transportation landscape. However, the factors influencing fleet electrification in these countries remain largely unknown. Given that this challenge...

Hybrid-electric aircraft represent a promising solution for the urgent need to decarbonize short-haul flights and bolster aviation sustainability. Nevertheless, the realization of hybrid-electric aircraft demands rigorous environmental impact analysis, given the substantial investments, time, and research required for technology development....

A computational framework is presented to numerically simulate the effects of antihypertensive drugs, in particular calcium channel blockers, on the mechanical response of arterial walls. A stretch-dependent smooth muscle model by Uhlmann and Balzani is modified to describe the interaction of pharmacological drugs and the inhibition of smooth...

To analyze inherent and diverse patterns within line-based public transport daily delay occurrences, we introduce a data-driven exploratory analysis focused on the spatial-temporal distribution of these delays. Our approach relies on the utilization of the image pattern recognition technique and k-means clustering algorithm. We extract daily...

Cable bacteria can reach high densities in coastal sediments, and as a result of their unusual electrogenic lifestyle and intense metabolic activity, exert a major and distinct impact on biogeochemical cycling, both locally in sediments and at the ecosystem level. This appears to be particularly true for seasonally hypoxic systems, but the...

Ocean heat exchanges at the marginal ice zone (MIZ) play an important role in melting sea ice. Mixed-layer eddies transport heat and ice floes across the MIZ, facilitating the pack's access to warm waters. This study explores these frontal dynamics using disk-shaped floes coupled to an upper-ocean model simulating the sea ice edge. Numerical...

Freight transport decarbonization is challenging due to the slow implementation of policies to meet climate goals. This paper analyzes the dynamics of the implementation of freight decarbonization measures. A System Dynamics model was developed and applied to the Brazilian freight system to simulate the use of more sustainable modes and means...

Backward erosion piping (BEP) is a failure mechanism of hydraulic structures like dams and levees on cohesionless foundations subjected to seepage flows. This article models the time-dependent development of BEP using numerical simulation of the erosion process. A 3-dimensional finite element equilibrium BEP model is extended with a...

Environmental justice – the concept that environmental amenities and burdens should be shared equitably among all races and socioeconomic classes – has gained diplomatic traction internationally, and political traction domestically in the United States, in recent years. In this paper, we focus on developing federal policy relevant to...
