This thesis investigates the potential of a large pumping station in IJmuiden, the Nether-lands, for participating in Demand Response. Due to climate change, renewable energy is onthe rise. The intermittency of energy, together with its unpredictable supply, are a big hurdlefor the energy transition. Two methods are promising solutions to this...

Heatpipes are promising devices for geothermal energy extraction owing to their
effectiveness to transport heat. The goal of this research is to validate an analytical heatpipe model with experiments and to investigate the difficulties in designing and constructing geothermal heatpipes. There is a lack of literature and research concerning...

The main objective of this study was to develop a quick model for an oil free twin screw compressor. The computational time of the model was to be kept as low as possible so that the model could be used for quick estimations and optimizations of the process. This was done by using a simple geometry focusing on the volume curve and port sizes,...

The world’s ever-increasing demand for energy and the inevitable depletion of the available fossil resources in the foreseeable future lead to an increasing necessity to optimize the exploitation of oil fields. The in-line liquid-liquid swirl separator is a separation method that is interesting for two reasons: It separates oil and water faster...

Kitepower is a start up that generates energy using kites. The Kitepower system consists of airborne components, and a ground station where a drum is connected to a generator/electrical motor. For generating energy a so called pumping cycle is performed. In a pumping cycle energy is generated during the traction phase when the kite pulls the...

Fashion (typically seen as specific and subject to seasonal cycles) is commonly opposed to architecture (being both generic and permanent), forming a dichotomy that has intrigued both disciplines for centuries. It is also within this tension that the idea of the model offers a point of synthesis—from the French architect Jean-Nicolas-Louis...

This thesis is a study on the cracking behaviour of road bases constructed with cement bound reclaimed asphalt (also known in the Netherlands as AGRAC). It is decided to focus on this material because of the few researches available on the topic although the material being widely applied, at least in the Netherlands. The
goal of adding...

Despite the fact that the price per watt-peak for photovoltaic modules are decreasing rapidly, there is a large population of people which have still not implemented photovoltaic technology in their everyday lives. An important reason why PV is still not the main source of electrical energy for these people is the uncertainty that comes with...

The influence of using different chemistry model and different chemical kinetics schemes on modeling combustion inside a rocket engine igniter are investigated. An igniter for a LOX/CH4 rocket engine is designed and a CFD model is developed which is used to model the designed igniter. Verification and validation methods are discussed.

In this thesis diffuser performance will be simulated with computational fluid dynamics, which will be done with the program Ansys Fluent. The expanding geometry creates an adverse pressure gradient and under certain conditions there will also be separation.

At first a relative simple simulation will be done of a one-directional...

Many regions in the world depend heavily on expensive desalinated water for fresh water consumption, in particular tropical areas. Current mainstream desalination technologies (Reverse Osmosis and Multi-Stage Flash Evaporation) are quite energy intensive and thus costly. Today’s challenge is to design a desalination system that could run with...

For conceptual aircraft design to include accurate laminar flow prediction, a link between modern computational tools to determine laminar-to-turbulent boundary layer transition and fast sizing methods is required. For swept wings, it is crucial to include the highly unstable three-dimensional crossflow component of the boundary layer. These...

Biomass as a renewable energy resource and a carbon neutral feedstock has a big potential to replace fossil fuel. Gasification as one of thermochemical process routes in biomass utilization draws attention with regards to its broad product range. The circulating fluidized bed with the advantages of higher and rapid conversion performs as the...

Wind turbines are often grouped together for financial reasons, but due to wake development this usually results in decreased turbine lifetimes and power capture, and thereby an increased levelized cost of energy (LCOE). Wind farm control aims to minimize this cost by operating turbines at their optimal control settings. Most state-of-the-art...

There are still important knowledge gaps regarding stability and safety of bicycle riding. Every year around 60,000 people need hospital treatment for single sided accidents in the Netherlands alone. Supporting the need for understanding lateral bicycle dynamics. One of the prominent disturbances on lateral bicycle and rider behaviour is...

In this thesis the auther tried to test if she can introduce a new model of educational institution so as to imply the new learning mode because the development of industry and technology in the industrial corridor in Pilsen, Chicago. If this model worked, it means it can help make the post-secondary education more affordable in Pilsen as well...

Models are an important tool for decision making. However, in order to get proper results, these models must be validated and only be used in situations where the conditions of the validation apply. Blind trust on a model can lead to unexpected and inaccurate results. Advancements can be made to reduce the number of situations where this occurs....

Maintenance dredging, as a result of port and channel sedimentation, can have a large share in overall maintenance costs of a port. A smart design can minimize the amount of maintenance dredging and thus improve the profitability of a port but also the long-term sustainability. As the preliminary design stages are often decisive for the final...

Coral reefs are hard structures that front many coasts in tropical and subtropical climates and protect them against wave attack and erosion. Despite reducing incoming wave energy by up to 98%, coral reefs are not a guarantee that mainland or island coasts are safe from being flooded. This was demonstrated by a series of wave-driven flooding...
