Range verification based on prompt gamma detection is an important step to improve dose control for proton therapy. To deduce the proton range from the detected prompt gamma emission, a prediction of the measured profile is required. This study introduces the Boltzmann solver as a faster alternative to the Monte Carlo simulations to produce dose...

As the margins for improvements in the current freight transport system become limited, researchers address more and more the importance of collaboration between the actors which is crucial for the implementation of new, more efficient transport concepts as synchromodality. In addition, rail is concerned as a sustainable mode of transport that...

MapReduce ecosystems are (still) widely popular for big data processing in data centers. To address the diverse non-functional requirements arising from many and increasingly more sophisticated users, the community has developed many scheduling policies for MapReduce workloads. Although some individual policies can dynamically optimize for...

An estimated 9 million infants are born prematurely each year in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and the leading cause of death in preterms is respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a popular treatment for RDS and has been proven to be safe, feasible, and effective for use in low- and middle-income...

In this study, a pressure filtration model for a slurry of milk fat crystal aggregates is developed, validated and used to investigate the effect of pressure-time profiles. The model focuses on the expression step and describes oil flow locally. The filter cake is modelled as a double porous non-linear elastic medium with permeabilities...

Launch costs for high-resolution space telescopes for Earth observation can be reduced when the telescope mirrors are made deployable. However, such a system is subject to optical aberrations that decreases image quality. To counter these aberrations, an Aberration Correction System (ACS) is proposed that uses a deformable mirror (DM) which is...

In the modeling of fractured reservoirs, the spatial representation plays an important role to enclose the heterogeneities present in the subsurface. The reservoir flow response obtained from simulation in time is determined by the type of method and by the scale of the representation (fine or coarse). As a deterministic model cannot capture the...

According to its creators, ICN is designed to fit the way we use the internet better than IP currently does.
The use of named data and distributed network layer caching may provide a more efficient utilization of
network resources due to the stateful forwarding plane which allows data to be retrieved from caches
close by the...

A complex marine project consist of series of operations, with each operation subject to a predefined operational limit and duration, depending on the equipment being used. If actual weather conditions exceed the operational limit, then the operation cannot be executed and hence downtime occurs. It is up to contractors, such as Boskalis, to...

Port planning is a complex multidisciplinary subject. To fulfill its functions, it is essential that the different elements of a port work together. The full potential of a terminal can only be reached when the wet infrastructure of a port (access channel, inner basins, turning circles) can keep up with the traffic load. From the literature...

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...

To compensate the heaving motion of a payload during deep water offshore installations, hanging from an on-board crane on a monohull vessel, a new concept is being investigated. By actively rolling the vessel using ballasting systems, the coupled heave motion of the crane tip can be reduced significantly. This is investigated by building a...

Climate change without adequate countermeasures has become one of humanity's greatest threat. Energy production by means of renewable energy sources is therefore one of the crucial measures that will play a paramount role in reducing the pollutant emissions of fossil fuel dependency. Small islands in particular are an exemplary case of the...

The attitude state of the passive Envisat satellite (ESA) has been estimated before using various techniques like Satellite Laser Ranging, radar and using light-curves. This research focusses on the use of Satellite Laser Ranging. Due to the relatively large (meter scale) offset between the center-of-mass of the satellite and the reflector where...

We develop a computational method that can efficiently simulate Landau levels in quantum heterostructures, by reducing the problems dimensionality. We then apply this to a GaSb/InAs/AlSb broken gap quantum well in the trivial and inverted regimes. This heterostructure can be tuned into a 2DTI phase, and has possible applications in topological...

Cogenra company has created a low concentration PV/Thermal system that produces both thermal energy and electricity simultaneously, mainly for commercial and industrial applications. The realization of a system that combines photovoltaic modules, solar thermal collectors and concentrating mirrors makes it a complicated system to study. So far,...

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...
