Scarcity of (green) energy resources drives mankind further offshore and towards deeper waters. Protection of subsea infrastructure is of eminent importance in these environments. The key parameter to have a good control over the installation of rock is the falling time. For larger water depths up to 1200 meters, the accuracy of the falling time...

Weather forecast agencies periodically provide information on potential typhoon behavior from its formation to dissipation. This information can be used to pre-position relief goods in areas that are potentially affected by a strong incoming typhoon. The uncertainty of the typhoon behavior with respect to a point location decreases over time,...

Interdigitated back contact silicon heterojunction (IBC-SHJ) solar cells have demonstrated 26.6\% world record efficiency by combining outstanding passivation of Si thin film layers with the absence of front shading contact in the crystalline silicon (c-Si) absorber bulk. Furthermore, this type of solar cell merges advantages of c-Si with Si...

Market-oriented electricity sector reforms have spread across the world in the last decades, with the aim to increase efficiency and stimulate investments. In many cases the outcomes of these reforms did not met up with expectations in terms of among others pricing, social welfare and efficiency. An often mentioned reason for these undesired...

A detailed modeling of non-gravitational forces is an area that has been left unexplored in the past for orbit modeling of Magellan, primarily due to imperfect knowledge about its attitude and physical properties (optical properties and drag coefficient). As a result, past orbit analyses have restricted the non-gravitational force modeling by...

Worldwide, cardiovascular diseases (e.g. coronary heart disease and stroke) are the leading cause of death. Early detection of cardiac failure symptoms and effective treatment can help reducing health care costs and predict cardiovascular events, which may prevent loss of quality of life, or even loss of life. This early recognition of imminent...

Auxetic materials are increasingly used in the field of sports, defense, bio-medicine, and acoustic-filtering due to their unconventional behavior of exhibiting a negative Poisson's effect. The prospective use of auxetics to mitigate shock and impact forces have proven the relevance of research on auxetics. It becomes of paramount importance to...

Laminar-turbulent transition (LTT) is the process through which smooth laminar flow transits into chaotic turbulent flow. Investigation of the paths taken to transit into turbulence is a front-runner among other methods followed to characterise turbulent flows. This is of particular importance in aerospace and energy industries for the design of...

Fastest growing wine market “Chinese wine market has been growing steadily between 2008-2012, by a constant growth rate of 137%” (Wang, 2018). The importation of wine is expected to grow from 2 million cases in 2007 to 50 million cases in 2017. The potential market is estimated at between 50 million and 250 million Chinese drinkers (Hays, 2015)....

The new concept of sewer mining which utilizes the ceramic nanofiltration (C-NF) membranes offers a compact solution for water and other resources recovery. However, since it has very limited pre-treatment process, membrane fouling is a common problem due to the direct contact between the membrane and sewage water. Sewage water contains a lot of...

The current procedure of the 11 Air Manoeuvre Brigade (11 AMB) is based on a manual non integrated and slow method that uses only outdated and only topographical data. In the procedure are all 5 aspects of a potential landing zone taken into account, the so called 5S: Slope, Shoots, Surface, Size and Security.
This research led to an...

Due to the complexity of aircraft spare part management, the aviation supply chain and ecosystem are not deemed as transparent as desired. As a result, participants face additional cost of communication and compliancy as proprietary component data is not made immediately accessible. To solve these problems, Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO)...

Digital Image Correlation is a powerful tool with which full-field strains can be extracted from a series of digital images. If applied on the micro-scale of composites, the fiber-matrix interaction can be studied. To do so, different challenges have to be overcome. First, composite specimens have to be prepared for microscopy. Then, a speckle...
