Eco-efficient Value Creation is a method to analyse innovative product and service design together with circular business strategies. The method is based on combined analyses of the costs, market value (perceived customer value) and eco-costs. This provides a prevention-based single indicator for ‘external environmental costs’ in LCA. The...

Listed or not, many Modern-era buildings deserve our appreciation for their architectural merit, whether it be for the social developments that these buildings represent or for the innovative technologies applied and used in their making. Early preservation projects of Modern ‘icons’ carried out in the 1980s–1990s provided valuable...

Most modern software systems can be adjusted to satisfy sets of conflicting requirements issued by different groups of users, based on their intended usage or execution context. For systems where configurations are a core concern, specific implementation mechanisms are put in place to allow the instantiation of sets of tailored components. Among...

Turbulence is implicitly present or explicitly desired in many natural and industrial processes, such as, flow over solid surfaces, cloud formation, pollination, combustion, and chemical mixing. Hence, a better understanding of turbulence can aid in fuel saving by reducing drag in the case of flow over solid surfaces, namely, cars, airplanes,...

The performances of microelectronic and optoelectronic devices are often severely limited by high temperatures and insufficient heat management. Therefore, when considering device fabrication and packaging, it is important to select materials based on their thermal performance. The increasing demand for more integrated functionality and...

Reliability of transport equipment plays a crucial role in providing safety for passengers. Safety systems of transport equipment perform safety functions with assigned safety integrity levels (SIL). If the reliability of a safety system is not sufficient, it has to be improved till the required level. This can be done by improving maintenance,...

The rise of intelligent transportation, autonomous driving and 3D virtual cities demands highly accurate and regularly updated 2D and 3D maps. However, traditional surveying andmapping techniques are inadequate as they are labor intensive and cost inefficient. Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS) systems, which combine Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)...

We consider stochastic programs where the distribution of the uncertain parameters is only observable through a finite training dataset. Using the Wasserstein metric, we construct a ball in the space of (multivariate and non-discrete) probability distributions centered at the uniform distribution on the training samples, and we seek decisions...

Loss of aircraft lateral control can be problem, specifically when multi engine propeller aircraft are faced with an engine failure. Another, less frequent phenomena is the loss of lateral control in case of aircraft damage. In this thesis, a method is developed to determine the minimum required aircraft velocity as a function of aircraft state...

One of the most crucial estimates obtained from reflection seismology is the seismic image. It provides a map of the subsurface reflectivities. However, in order to construct an accurate map an accurate propagation velocity model is needed. For simple geologic environments an isotropic velocity model is sufficient, however, for complex geologic...

In this study, we tested a new approach to facilitate the application of white rot fungi (WRF) under non-sterile conditions, by introducing grain sorghum as carrier and sole carbon and nutrient source for WRF. To this end, Trametes versicolor was immobilized on sorghum, and its ability to remove humic acid (HA) from synthetic and real...

Weather extremes have harmful impacts on communities around Lake Victoria in East Africa. Every year, intense nighttime thunderstorms cause numerous boating accidents on the lake, resulting in thousands of deaths among fishermen. Operational storm warning systems are therefore crucial. Here we complement ongoing early warning efforts based on...

The DIA method for the detection, identification and adaptation of model misspecifications combines estimation with testing. The aim of the present contribution is to introduce a unifying framework for the rigorous capture of this combination. By using a canonical model formulation and a partitioning of misclosure space, we show that the...

The cost of currently available technologies for CO2 capture should be further reduced to allow for large scale implementation of Carbon Capture and Storage. Solvents for CO2 capture systems with physical absorption are usually selected based on heuristics, engineering expertise and experimental trials. The performance of the separation system...

The Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) is currently losing mass, as a result of complex mechanisms of ice-climate interaction that need to be understood for reliable projections of future sea level rise. The thesis focuses on the estimation of mass anomalies in Greenland using data from the GRACE satellite gravity mission. Monthly GRACE gravity field...

Belt conveyors are widely used in bulk solids handling and conveying systems. Considering the extensive use of belt conveyors, their operations involve a large amount of energy. Taking the relevant economic and social challenges into account, there is a strong demand for lowering the energy consumption of belt conveyors, and for reducing the...
