Microfluidics has changed the way we think about laboratory experimental design. With the use of lab-on-chip devices, we are capable of carrying out experiments that include several functions on a single chip. Despite a lot of progress in the miniaturization of these devices, the peripheral systems which control the microfluidic functionalities...

Transportation of very viscous fluids through pipelines is a real challenge. With the depletion of light oils in reservoirs, it becomes economically favourable to harvest heavy crude oils to contribute to meeting the ever growing energy demand. A suitable candidate for the transportation of these very viscous oil is by means of core-annular flow...

Essence of the research
This research thesis was built on the idea that the city identity should be developed by the citizens when rebuilding a city after disaster. This idea stems from the intertwined triangle of government, business, and society, where the psychological needs of the citizens are most underestimated. The citizen-centred...

One of the challenges in gas turbines is in the reduction of NOx and CO emissions due to simultaneous
dependence on stringent emission norms and subsequent demand for change in operating conditions. To cater the volatile demand of power supply, most of the gas turbines have to be flexible to changing loads. Closer the load is to full load,...

The European Union’s energy and climate policy objectives for 2030 targets to achieve at least 27% of the generated electricity from renewables. Such large-scale integration of renewable Energy Sources (RES) into the grid, will have drastic effects on the electricity grid structure, system operations and the functioning of the electricity market...

Repair was once a common act. With increased product diversity and complexity, a scarcity and obsolescence of spare parts is making repair increasingly difficult and economically unviable. The result is an accelerated turnover of manufactured goods, which are more often replaced than repaired. As products are discarded, embedded materials and...

By 2027 75% of today’s Fortune 500 companies will be gone. Randomly pursuing different ideas and hoping that at least one of them can turn into something innovative is not enough anymore. We need to design organizations that can continuously create human-centered innovation. The construct of design-led ambidexterity (DLA) can support us in doing...

Envision began as an attempt to increase independence for people with visual impairment. During the course of the project, through a very participatory design approach, a deep understanding of the challenges faced by visually impaired people was obtained. A technology exploration in search for potential solutions led to the discovery of the...

This study improves the Short term wind power forecasting to help bid the wind power in the electricity market. Supplying power lesser/greater than the expected power creates imbalance in the Electricity system. Hence electricity markets impose penalty for supplying power lesser/greater than expected power. Bidding right amount of power is an...

Building a working quantum computer brings many challenges to overcome. For quanum processors, promising qubits seem to be NV-centres in diamond. Such processor is divided into processing units (PUs), each comprising an NV-centre with several carbon spin qubits, and they are interconnected with each other by optical links. The qubits within a PU...

A new technique is developed in this thesis, which applies boundary conditions to moving boundaries in the Material Point Method (MPM). While MPM has been proven to be useful in slope stability, foundation and seabed ploughing modelling, the application of boundary conditions is still a challenge,
because the location of the boundary is...

Tidal energy is one of form through which renewable energy can be extracted from oceans which covers more than 70% of the earth surface. Tides are a periodic function and can be predicted for a long period this makes tidal energy more favorable than other ocean energy. To prevent the sealing problems associated with the tidal generators the...
