In view of rising global demand for aromatics as starting chemical for many commodity goods as well as pharmaceuticals, new routes for production are explored. Since the advent of fracking, natural gas has become increasingly cheap and direct utilization for aromatics production has gained attractiveness. Methane dehydroaromatization represents...

THIS thesis describes the development of a positionable waveguide array realized in a silicon nitride / silicon dioxide (Si3N4 core / SiO2 cladding) photonic platform. The positionable waveguide array is the heart of a novel alignment approach for high precision multi-channel chip-to-chip interconnects. This alignment approach enables submicron...

haploid S. cerevisiae laboratory strain of the CEN.PK family. The performance of the constructed hybrid, strain IMS0408, was then compared to those of its parents in anaerobic batch cultures grown on different media and at different temperatures. While S. eubayanus displayed significantly higher growth rates than S. cerevisiae in anaerobic batch...

Values are attributed to products over time and across generations. They are created, compiled, shared, evolved, exchanged, and also discarded. However, creating an explicit theory and analysis on this subject is challenging due to the abstract and multifaceted nature of the topic with a plethora of theories from various research communities. To...

Transition zones in railway tracks are locations with considerable changes in the vertical stiffness of the track support, which can be found near bridges, culverts and tunnels. In such locations, the stiffness variation and the differential settlement of tracks (uneven settlement of the track on the embankment and of the engineering structure)...

Introduction: Behavioral health risk factors are major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The four main risk factors, the so-called SNAP-factors, relate to smoking, nutrition, alcohol consumption and physical inactivity. A consistent finding in health research is that these behaviors tend to cluster together, thereby resulting in...

Classification of congestion patterns is important in many areas in traffic planning and management, ranging from policy appraisal, database design, to prediction and real-time control. One of the key constraints in applying machine learning techniques for classification is the availability of sufficient data (traffic patterns) with clear and...

Solid oxide fuel cell systems for combined heat and power production (SOFC μCHP) fueled by natural gas are attractive because of their high electrical and total efficiency even at small scale. The development of a hydrogen economy will increase the availability of distributed hydrogen as a pure gas. Alternatively, hydrogen may be blended with...

Due to the presence of inter-particle cohesive force, cohesive particles reveal totally different fluidization behaviors as compared to the non-cohesive system. This paper studies the fluidization dynamics of Geldart B particles with varying thermal-induced cohesive forces. Multi-source X-ray tomography was applied to reconstruct 3D temporal...

Spatial and temporal rainfall variability play an important role in generation of pluvial flooding. In urban areas, this phenomenon has increased in the last decades, due in particular to an intensification of urbanization and imperviousness degree. In fact, population is growing and moving from rural areas to cities, which are becoming more and...

Improving efficiencies of thermal energy conversion systems is an important way to slow down global warming and mitigate climate change. Vapor absorption heat pump and refrigeration cycles are highly efficient ways of heating and cooling. These thermally activated systems also provide opportunities for the integration with a wide spectrum of low...

Crystallization is one of the essential downstream steps of the manufacturing of chemical and pharmaceutical compounds when it comes to separation, purification, and final product formation. Although it has been years since it is widely applied in the aforementioned industries, it is known as one of the complex processes where continuous...

The geotechnical description of peats represents one of the main challenges in the Netherlands to assure the required safety standard and performance of the flood defence infrastructure. Almost a third of the country is situated below the sea and the rivers level with about 60% to 70% of the population and economic assets concentrated in low...

As the building sector is expanding, a growing interest in technologies that can reduce the CO2 emission from concrete production has led to partial replacement of cement with by-products from various industrial processes. Besides the partial replacement of cement, development of alkali activation technology ensures full replacement of cement in...

Research of the ageing mechanisms in the Netherlands is crucial to deal with ageing infrastructure and the growing pressure on and lack of natural resources. The use of porous asphalt incurs the additional costs because of the shorter service life and the more expensive maintenance required. On the other hand, the Dutch road engineering...

Separation and selective production of branched paraffins are among the most important and still challenging processes in the oil and gas industry. Addition of branched hydrocarbons can increase the octane number of a fuel without causing additional environmental concerns. Conversion of linear hydrocarbons into branched ones also improves the...
