For many aerospace applications, the dominant airfoil self-noise source is Turbulent Boundary Layer Trailing Edge (TBL-TE) noise. The replacement of solid airfoil trailing edges with permeable materials proved to be an adequate noise reduction mean in previous studies. This thesis project contributes to the development of innovative permeable...

Large amounts of residual waste activated sludge are produced as by-products during biological wastewater treatment processes. Anaerobic digestion is a widely accepted stabilisation method for waste activated sludge (WAS) treatment. However, the application of anaerobic digestion is limited by the long retention time and low degradation...

Tiny batteryless sensing systems that do not have a constant supply of power have become an increasingly appealing way to gather data, in hard to reach places, at low cost. These systems suffer from frequent and unpredictable power loss. Preserving information through power failures is an ancillary challenge. Unfortunately, state-of-the-art...

The additively manufacturing industry is emerging rather quickly and has find its way within numerous fields of expertise. Slowly the building industry is adopting these fabrication methods as well, but there are still a lot of challenges. Especially the bonds within the layered structure are demand more research. Numerous researches have...

This thesis aims to develop a novel control strategy that efficiently controls traffic with different penetration rates by relying purely on wireless communication to integrate the control of automated and human drivers. The new strategy uses the concept of induced platooning to use automated vehicle to indirectly control conventional vehicles....

There is a 95% certainty that human activity is the dominant cause of observed warming since the mid-20thcentury [1]. Burning fossil fuels for energy is the dominant cause of greenhouse gas emissions. 32% of the Dutch energy supply is consumed by the built environment. The façade is the largest area of the building envelope. Consequently, the...

Customs authorities are responsible for secure cross-border activities and collection of duties. To that extent, customs authorities perform risk assessment. The customs declaration on which risk assessment is based often lacks detailed data or is incorrect. Therefore, customs authorities are in need of new ways to improve risk assessment. One...

The Netherlands has always been in close proximity to water, whether its rivers or the sea. This proximity to water and the need for land to settle and farm, led to vast amounts of land reclamation by constructing dykes along the water features to prevent flooding of the new earned land. This newly reclaimed land started to subside over the...

The quality of oral care among frail elderly people in nursing homes is low. Due to reduced mobility or cognitive functioning, elderly people fail to complete the oral care ritual sufficiently. Once this happens, caregivers are obliged to take over this task. Unfortunately, in many cases this does not happen due to the difficulty of the task,...

Mimetic discretisation techniques are a growing field in computational physics research. Among these techniques, the recently developed mimetic spectral element method allows for exact discretisation of metric independent relations. This has been proven numerically in various mixed formulations, for instance the mixed velocity-vorticity-pressure...

During the past decade, durability and sustainability has become more and more important in the building industry. By using no steel reinforcement, which has with high carbon emission and is sensitivity to corrosion, the structure should have a longer life span with less maintenance and a lower carbon footprint.
To get more information on...
