Deltas are low-lying plains which are formed when river sediments deposit in coastal environments. Deltas are nutrient-rich, and productive ecological and agricultural areas with high socio-economic importance. Globally, deltas are home to about 500 million people and are considerably modified by human activities. In addition, they are...

Due to its long spin coherence and coherent spin-photon interface the nitrogen vacancy (NV) center in diamond has emerged as a promising platform for quantum science and technology, including quantum networks, quantum computing and quantum sensing. In recent years larger quantum systems have been demonstrated by using optical entanglement links...

The growing group of health-conscious consumers drives the development and sales in the market of low- or non-alcoholic beverages. In particular, sales in alcohol-free beer (AFB) has drastically gained in recent years, giving the incentive to further advance alcohol-free products. This thesis comprises the development of a new technology to...

Have you ever sat in a cramped airplane? Sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with limited legroom might not be a comfortable experience while flying in an airplane. Therefore, human anthropometrics or body dimensions are important to consider when designing for interiors used by a large population. To accommodate people of all sizes, a certain minimum...

The separation of C8 aromatic hydrocarbons (e.g. xylenes) is one of the most important processes in the petrochemical industry. Current research efforts are focused on materials that can decrease the energy consumption and increase the efficiency of the separation process. Industrial processing of C8 aromatics typically considers adsorption in a...

Volgens voorlopige cijfers hebben gemeenten in 2020 een positief resultaat van ruim een miljard euro gerealiseerd op grondexploitaties. Dit saldo bestaat voor zo een 30% uit een positief resultaat op investeringen in fysieke bedrijfsinfrastructuur en voor 70% uit grondexploitaties voor woningbouw. Dit resultaat is beduidend hoger dan in de...

Among different ways of harnessing tidal energy, tidal stream turbines are gaining popularity over traditional tidal dams. This is owing to the lower capital cost, and potentially lower ecological impact of tidal turbines. However, compared to more developed sources of energy, tidal energy remains expensive, which impedes its large-scale...

Yang, W. (author)
Congestion in and pollution by traffic are amongst the most severe and urgent problems faced by both developed and developing countries these days. It is regarded as a "wicked" problem, which implies it is both hard to define the inherent problem and to find adequate measures to deal with. The complexity of transport systems makes it impossible...

One of the pillars of the scientific method is the fact that... Oh wait, it’s a different one. One of the pillars of the technological development is the fact that if the existing design does not achieve the goal or cannot be applied in new conditions, one could propose a totally different design that may achieve the goal. The only constraints...

Over the last decades of development of knowledge management and organizational learning, there has been an increase in learning research within and across projects. Learning from past lessons in projects and preparing for the next project management practices is very important in large infrastructure projects. The autonomy of projects brings...

Millions of people worldwide are exposed to excessive concentrations of fluoride (F<sup>−</sup>) from groundwater sources. Ca-Al-CO<sub>3</sub> layered double hydroxides (LDHs) have shown promising defluoridation efficiency; however, defluoridation by Ca-Al-CO<sub>3</sub> LDHs is highly pH sensitive. This study showed that simultaneous...

A 3D dynamic numerical model is established for modelling the excavation process for dredging purposes. The interaction between the solid and fluid phases is realized by a specially designed DEM-FVM coupling mechanism, where the fluid-particle interaction forces, the volume fraction information and the particle information are constantly updated...

Kluge, C. (author)
The Earth’s subsurface exhibits a high potential for generating and storing energy. Engineered fractured systems, for example geothermal or carbon storage reservoirs, highly depend on the capacity of rock to conduct and store fluids. Faults and fractures create the largest contrasts in flow in these reservoirs and can enhance the reservoir...

This article aims to incorporate the reliability model of power electronic converters into power system reliability analysis. The converter reliability has widely been explored in device- and converter-levels according to physics of failure analysis. However, optimal decision-making for design, planning, operation, and maintenance of power...

Filina, O. (author)
Multicellular development is a sequence of genetically programmed, intricately linked micro- and macroscopic events that start from a single cell - zygote - and lead to the formation of a functional individual, primed for survival and reproduction. All developmental events, fromgene expression to cell division, differentiation andmigration, as...

Nijgh, M.P. (author)
Traditionally welded headed studs have been used to generate composite interaction between a steel beam and a (cast in-situ) concrete floor. This permanent connection impairs the demountability of the structural components and therefore demolition of the composite floor system is inevitable at the end of the functional service life. The...

Fossil fuels are currently the primary source for electrical power generation, which subsequently increases the rate of greenhouse gas (CO2, CH4) emission. It has been agreed at the Climate Change Conference 2015 in Paris (COP21) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit the global temperature increase to less than 2°C compared to pre...
