For the development of next-generation batteries it is important to understand the structural changes in electrodes under realistic non-equilibrium conditions. With microbeam X-ray diffraction it is possible to probe many individual electrode grains concurrently under non-equilibrium conditions in realistic battery systems. This makes it...

Robotic systems are the workhorses in practically all automated applications. Manufacturing industries, warehouses, elderly care, disaster rescue and (unfortunately) warfare are example applications where human life has benefited from robotics. By precisely planning controlling their motions via computer programs, real world tasks can be...

van Roosmalen, J. (author)
In this thesis, we developed tools to model and simulate single gamma imaging modalities. These tools were subsequently used to simulate and optimize a design for Molecular Breast Tomosynthesis (MBT). The chapters in this thesis can be divided into two groups. The first group consists of Chapters 3 and 4 detailing technical topics concerning...

Neutron Depth Profiling (NDP) allows determination of the spatial distribution of specific isotopes, via neutron capture reactions. In a capture reaction charged particles with fixed kinetic energy are formed, where their energy loss through the material of interest can be used to provide the depth of the original isotope. As lithium-6 has a...

This dissertation pertains to algebraic proof theory, a research field aimed at solving problems in structural proof theory using results and insights from algebraic logic, universal algebra, duality and representation theory for classes of algebras. The main contributions of this dissertation involve the very recent theory of multi-type calculi...

Tzimoulis, A. (author)
This thesis is part of a line of research aimed at providing a strong and modular mathematical backbone to a wide and inherently diverse class of logics, introduced to capture different facets of social behaviour. The contributions of this thesis are rooted methodologically in duality, algebraic logic and structural proof theory, pertain to and...

The reduction in visibility that accompanies fog events presents a hazard to human safety and navigation. However, accurate fog prediction remains elusive, with numerical methods often unable to capture the conditions of fog formation, and observational methods having high false-alarm rates in order to obtain high hit rates of prediction. In...

Background: Anthocyanins are polyphenolic pigments which provide pink to blue colours in fruits and flowers. There is an increasing demand for anthocyanins, as food colorants and as health-promoting substances. Plant production of anthocyanins is often seasonal and cannot always meet demand due to low productivity and the complexity of the...

Simultaneous particle-image velocimetry and laser-induced fluorescence combined with large-eddy simulations are used to investigate the flow and pollutant dispersion behaviour in a rural-to-urban roughness transition. The urban roughness is characterized by an array of cubical obstacles in an aligned arrangement. A plane fence is added one...

Wu, L. (author)
Dynamic analysis of large-size finite element models has been commonly applied by mechanical engineers to simulate the dynamic behavior of complex structures. The ever-increasing demand for both detailed and accurate simulation of complex structures forces mechanical engineers to pursue a balance between two conflicting goals during the...

HoW do you look inside a box without opening it? How can we know whether or not a heart valve is functioning correctly without cutting a person open? Imaging – the art of seeing the unseeable. A CT-scan at the doctor’s office, crack detection in the wing of an airplane, and medical ultrasound are all examples of imaging techniques that allow us...

Olavarria Contreras, I.J. (author)
This thesis is about measurements of the electrical properties of different families of molecules. The research was focused on fundamental questions of charge transport in organic molecules. With this aim, experiments were performed to shed light on the underlying transport mechanisms. For example, an important ingredient of the work concerned...

In the vicinity of ramps, drivers make route choices, change lanes and in most cases also adjust their speeds. This can trigger anticipatory behaviour by the surrounding vehicles, which are also reflected in lane changes and/or changes in speed. This phenomenon is called turbulence and is widely recognised by the scientific literature and...

With trajectory data, a complete microscopic and macroscopic picture of traffic flow operations can be obtained. However, trajectory data are difficult to observe over large spatiotemporal regions—particularly in urban contexts—due to practical, technical and financial constraints. The next best thing is to estimate plausible trajectories...

Policy makers are looking for effective ways to promote the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). Among the options is the roll-out and management of charging infrastructure to meet the EV drivers’ refuelling needs. However, policies in this area do not only have a long-term effect on the adoption of EVs among prospective owners, they also...

Numerical simulation is one of the most important tools required for financial and operational management of geothermal reservoirs. The modern geothermal industry is challenged to run large ensembles of numerical models for uncertainty analysis, causing simulation performance to become a critical issue. Geothermal reservoir modeling requires...

Low-fidelity fluid–structure interaction model of flexible propeller blades is assessed by means of comparison with high-fidelity aeroelastic results. The low-fidelity model is based on a coupled extended blade-element momentum model and non-linear beam theory which were both implemented in Matlab. High-fidelity fluid–structure interaction...

An experimental and numerical investigation was conducted to study the skin-stiffener separation of single T-shape stiffener specimens in postbuckling condition. Three specimens were manufactured with a centrally located Teflon insert, and were loaded in compression until collapse. Deformation patterns and separation evolution were monitored...

Many-Objective Robust Decision Making (MORDM) is a prominent model-based approach for dealing with deep uncertainty. MORDM has four phases: a systems analytical problem formulation, a search phase to generate candidate solutions, a trade-off analysis where different strategies are compared across many objectives, and a scenario discovery...
