Some example applications are presented, in which the peculiar Raman fingerprint of PuO2 can be used for the detection of crystalline Pu4+ with cubic symmetry in an oxide environment in various host materials, like mixed oxide fuels, inert matrices and corium sub-systems. The PuO2 Raman fingerprint was...

Seawater desalination is a rapidly growing coastal industry that is increasingly threatened by algal blooms. Depending on the severity of algal blooms, desalination systems may be forced to shut down because of clogging and/or poor feed water quality. To maintain stable operation and provide good feed water quality to seawater reverse osmosis ...

With the rapid increase in vehicle automation technology, the call for understanding how humans behave while driving in an automated vehicle becomes more urgent. Vehicles that have automated systems such as Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) or Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) not only support drivers in their journey, but also place them in a passive...

Achieving the transition to a renewable energy supply in Europe requires further integration of national electricity systems. To support the large-scale integration of variable renewable energy sources, different regions in Europe will increasingly come to rely on each other to meet demand during different hours of the year. This requires an...

Radiotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses high energy radiation to shrink tumors by destroying cancer cells. It is estimated that 52 per cent of cancer patients can potentially benefit from this type of treatment (Delaney et al. 2005). Planning radiotherapy treatment is a complicated multi-disciplinary process (Aselmaa et al. 2013b)....

The aim of this PhD. thesis is to use molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to comprehend the mechanisms governing nucleation and growth of martensite phase in austenitic phases in iron. In view of this objective, the thesis is divided into five parts: Chapter 2 reviews previous investigations of the fcc-to-bcc transformation in iron by MD...

The development of large offshore wind power generation in the North Sea has been significantly accelerated in the last years. The large distance from shore in combination with the need for large transmission capacity has raised the interest for the voltage source converter high voltage direct current technology (VSC-HVDC). Transmission system...

Simões Costa, P. (author)
Transport of particles by a carrier fluid is an important, ubiquitous process. Few of many obvious examples are the blood flow that feeds oxygen to the different parts of our bodies, wind-assisted pollination, sediment transport in sand storms, avalanches, or rivers, cloud formation, and pyroclastic flows. In industry one can think of the...

The liberalization of the Dutch energy market has led to a change of relation between energy companies and their customers. At the same time, the Dutch energy policy expects energy companies to contribute to an energy supply that is cleaner, smarter and more varied, and available at any time at affordable prices. The situation since the...

Mattoni, G. (author)
This thesis is an experimental investigation of the physical properties of different transition metal oxide ultra-thin films. A common feature of these various materials and structures is that they exhibit a solid-state phase transition from a metallic to an insulating state, which is triggered upon changing sample composition, or by varying an...

Digital music platforms have recently become the primary revenue stream for recorded music, making record labels and content owners increasingly interested in developing new digital features for their users.
Besides listening to expert-curated playlists and automatically recommended music, users can also benefit from a more informative, non...

Infrastructure projects - such as the construction of tunnels and bridges or the (re)construction of roads and highways – are always performed to add quality to society. In The Netherlands, these projects are most often financed by the government, from local to national level, and constructed by private contractors. Public and private partners...

The research work underlying this thesis starts from a societal issue: A comfortable artefact helps people to improve their well-being and can be sold easier.
In order to fulfil these two requirements (wellbeing and companies’ profit) a comfort-driven human-centred design method is needed.
Driven by the thoughts of Stephen Hawking that,...

Teerds, P.J. (author)
The modern emphasis on authenticity and the individual not only caused an ‘astonishing flowering of poetry and music’ and ‘the rise of the novel’ states the philosopher Hannah Arendt in her well-known book The Human Condition, but also the fall and ‘decline of the more public arts, especially architecture.’ In this study Hans Teerds takes up the...

In mining, modelling of the deposit geology is the basis for many actions to be taken in the future, such as predictions of quality attributes, mineral resources and ore reserves, as well as mine design and long-term production planning. The essential knowledge about the raw materialproduct is based on this model-based prediction, which comes...

Coal fly ash is widely used in as raw material in concrete industry because it can replace part of the cement and fly ash contributes to improve certain properties of concrete. As a way to reduce the contribution of coal fired power plants to the climate change, more and more coal is replaced by biomass. To keep fly ash as a valuable resource...

Scientific visualization of tensor fields is challenging due to the complex and multivariate nature of tensor data. The visualization of multiple tensor fields becomes even more difficult, and still in its infancy. This thesis aims at contributing visual analysis techniques for multiple 3D tensor fields.
We focus specifically on the visual...

Depth plays an essential role in computer graphics for the sorting of primitives. The related data representation, the depth map, is useful for many different applications. In this dissertation, we present solutions for creating depth maps with the goal of using these maps to enhance the depth perception in the original images. Regarding the...

Many types of drones have emerged over the last decade and new applications in various sectors are announced almost on a daily basis. In scientific literature, small drones are called Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs). Especially very small MAVs will play a significant role in indoor applications, since their small size allows them to navigate in narrow...
