One of the pillars of the scientific method is the fact that all scientific predictions and explanations of phenomena in the universe are testable. Testing in the context of physics involves the action of measuring. Thus, the measurement process plays an important role in physics.
While classically we all understand the idea of measurement...

The research investigates How can the morphological approach in combination with the pattern language approach assist urban designers to achieve historical continuity in urban design both on theory and application levels.
This research overviews the developments and applications of the two approaches worldwide with a special emphasis on the...

This dissertation is about improving performance of projects delivering complex systems. Examples of such systems are ships, infrastructure systems and process plants. Mostly these systems are one of a kind, so called ‘one-offs’ and are the ‘product’ of one or more coherent projects each executed by a consortium of enterprises. The lifecycle of...

In the top layer of aerated rapid sand filtration systems, uncharged As(III) is biologically converted to charged As(V). Subsequently, the main removal mechanism for As(V) is adsorption onto oxidised, flocculated Fe(III) (hydrous ferric hydroxides; HFO). The aim of this research was to understand the interactions between As and Fe in...

As a consequence of the suspended sediments in river water, cake formation on the streambed and clogging of the aquifer may occur, leading to a decline in the production yield of riverbank filtration systems, particularly in highly turbid river waters. However, naturally occurring flow forces may induce sufficient scouring of the streambed,...

Euler–Lagrange computational fluid dynamics simulations offer great potential for the integration of transport dynamics and metabolic dynamics in fermentation systems. Since the seminal work of Lapin et al. [1,2], progress has been made, mainly in the analysis of CFD data and translation to laboratory setup designs. Different large-scale...

Selective Frequency Damping (SFD) is a popular method for the computation of globally unstable steady-state solutions in fluid dynamics. The approach has two model parameters whose selection is generally unclear. In this article, a detailed analysis of the influence of these parameters is presented, answering several open questions with...

Voskov, D.V. (author)
Gas flow in fractured nano-porous shale formations is complicated by a hierarchy of structural features, ranging from nanopores to hydraulic fractures, and by several transport mechanisms that differ from standard viscous flow used in reservoir modeling. The use of accurate simulation techniques that honor the physical complexity of these...

A compositional formulation is a reliable option for understanding the complex subsurface processes and the associated physical changes. However, this type of model has a great computational cost, since the number of equations that needs to be solved in each grid block increases proportionally with the number of components employed. To...

Arsenic (As) mobility in water is worldwide studied since its toxicity was proven in 1888. Intake of As can lead to skin disease, cancer, kidney and heart failure, diabetes and paralysis. In the Netherlands, groundwater used for drinking water production contains As in the range from 0 – 70 μg/L. Currently, all groundwater treatment plants...

Automated driving may be a key to solving a number of problems that humanity faces today: large numbers of fatalities in traffic, traffic congestions, and increased gas emissions. However, unless the car drives itself fully automatically (such a car would not need to have a steering wheel, nor accelerator and brake pedals), the driver needs to...

Auping, W.L. (author)
Simulation models are increasingly used for exploring the consequences of deep uncertainty in complex societal issues. The complexity of societal grand challenges, often characterised by the interrelatedness of different elements in the systems underlying these challenges, often renders mental simulation impossible, necessitating the use of...

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of small multi-mission platforms such as CubeSats, in an attempt to reduce costs of space missions. CubeSats have been used for different purposes including Earth observation, research and technology demonstration.
However, a key technology that is still under development is the...

Resource- and energy-efficient methane (CH4) transformation to fuels and chemicals is a research topic with societal, environmental and industrial relevance owing to the great variety of methane sources, including existing gas networks, small natural gas fields, shale gas, coal beds, agricultural biogas, deep-sea methane hydrates and the...

Orthopedic surgery is a surgical discipline that is concerned with the treatment
of the musculoskeletal system. Many orthopedic treatments involve cutting or
drilling in bones by using rigid drills or oscillating saws. Using waterjets instead of
conventional instruments can be beneficial due to the absence of thermal damage
and a...

Recommender Systems have become a crucial tool to serve personalized content and to promote online products and media, but also to recommend restaurants, events, news and dating profiles. The underlying algorithms have a significant impact on the quality of recommendations and have been the subject of many studies in the last two decades. In...

Quantum computers can accelerate solving some problems which are inefficiently solved by classical computers, such as quantum chemistry simulation. To date, quantum computer engineering has focused primarily at opposite ends of the required system stack: devising high-level programming languages and compilers to describe and optimize quantum...

Extra high voltage (EHV) power transmission systems have been traditionally constructed by using overhead lines (OHL) to transfer power over long distances. During the last decade, the opposition against the construction of new OHLs has significantly increased due to societal and environmental concerns, which has caused major obstacles for the...
