In the past years, climate change has caused an increasing number of extreme weather events. In the Netherlands this is, for instance, reflected by the growing amount of extreme rainfall events. This creates big issues for water management authorities like water boards. Water boards are often responsible for local streams, that cannot handle the...

Interdigitated back contact silicon heterojunction (IBC-SHJ) solar cells have demonstrated 26.6\% world record efficiency by combining outstanding passivation of Si thin film layers with the absence of front shading contact in the crystalline silicon (c-Si) absorber bulk. Furthermore, this type of solar cell merges advantages of c-Si with Si...

Airbus Friedrichshafen is working on the development of a milliNewton HEMPT (High Efficiency
Multistage Plasma Thruster): an electrostatic thruster concept suitable for small satellite
propulsion. An engineering model, the mN-μHEMPT, has been built and tested in vacuum,
generating thrust levels in the range of 1 to 5 mN. Although the...

High-fidelity hybrid RANS/LES methods are unable to accurately predict the transition from laminar to turbulent boundary layer flows. Usually resulting in an incorrect prediction of boundary layer characteristics. In this study, a hybrid RANS/LES model was developed for transitional boundary layer flows. The transitional kkL-omega turbulence...

Integration of bifacial photovoltaic module with a noise barrier (PVNB) has emerged as one of the promising innovation in the building integrated PV (BIPV) system application. By having the advantage to absorb both the light incident from the front and the rear side of the cell, bifacial PV module is suitable for a vertical installation...

The study into sand wave dynamics in South Channel has commenced after large dune forms were observed in monitoring campaigns following the channel deepening project of the Port of Melbourne. The project involved deepening of the harbour berths and channels, but more importantly, it involved the deepening of South Channel in Port Phillip Bay....

The large-scale 3D printing technology created by a group of partners led by DUS Architects allows fabricating components made of thermoplastic polymers with Fused Deposition Modelling technique. These components can be used as moulds for concrete elements, providing freedom of form and unprecedented optimization opportunities. In this report...

In hydrological models evaporation is often still quite uncertain. Potential evaporation is used as input, but the modelling of plant stresses is not always accurate enough to describe the behaviour in reality. In situ measured actual evaporation data is rare, and doing measurements is time consuming and expensive. With the advance of satellite...

Induction heating is used to heat offshore pipeline field joints to a required temperature for application of anti-corrosion coatings. The objective of induction heating is to obtain a uniform surface temperature of typically 230 ± 10 °C in a time-span of minutes. The desired temperature profile of the field joint, also known as heat profile is...

Muscle spindle is an organ of proprioception that plays an important role in neuro-muscular control of the human joints. It is composed of intrafusal fibers, the mechanical properties of which determine the afferent response of the spindle. Intrafusal fibers are not homogenous: they are composed of many sarcomeres, have localized fusimotor...

This study shows how historical topographic maps of the Zuid-Limburg mining area can be used to estimate the effects of mining activities on vertical ground surface motion. Coal has been the most important energy supplier for the Netherlands from the 19th century until the discovery of the large Slochteren gas field. After 1960, mining of coal...

In this study the prediction of stratocumulus occurrence by the Large-Eddy Simulation model DALES was investigated. The performance of DALES was compared with that of the large-scale weather model RACMO. A method was developed which can consistently initialise the model by assimilation of observations in addition to large-scale weather model...

This thesis was conducted at KVE Composites Group (The Hague, The Netherlands). The aim of this thesis is to create an aeroelastic model that can be used during the design phase of these rotor blade projects. An aeroelastic was created consisting of a Ritz-Hamilton structural model, a lifting line quasi steady aerodynamic model with two inflow...

At the sheet metal department at Fokker Aerostructures a high variety of low demand sheet metal products are produced for use in different aerospace assembly programs. The production process operates in a batch shop style of operations in order to cope with the high-variety and low-volume nature of the product mix. In order to ensure that the...

Many reservoirs are considered unsuitable candidates for Enhanced Oil Recovery. Surfactant-Foam flooding, also referred to as Low-Tension-Gas flooding, could be a solution to enhance the oil recovery in tight, saline or high temperature reservoirs. SF-flooding combines reduction of the oil-water interfacial tension by surfactant, with mobility...

Enhanced oil recovery by gas injection can show excellent displacement efficiency but may suffer from poor sweep efficiency. A promising method to overcome poor sweep efficiency in gas-injection enhanced oil recovery processes is foam injection. The effect of oil saturation on foam stability is complicated and not fully understood. Complexity in...

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is currently developed as a clean and sustainable energy technology for offshore application in tropical areas. The technology shows promising possibilities in combination with the Kalina cycle, a thermodynamic cycle for the generation of energy from low temperature difference heat sources using a working...

The modelling approaches can go to two extremes: fully data-oriented and fully process oriented. Modelling for diesel engines is not excluded. Usually data-oriented is computational friendly and accurate and the latter is detail and flexible. A high-speed diesel engine model is missing in project JOULES. The objective of this work is to develop...

Simulation of reservoir operations is important to investigate the effects of climate change and changes in human water demands on water availability in the future. Several reservoir simulation models exist, however it is unknown in which situations what type of model could be applied. This study tries to give an answer to the question how...
