At present, many studies have begun to focus on evaluating urban accessibility and livability, which can be a series of great guidance for future urban planning considering residents’ personal perceptions of various living aspects. It can be observed from the existing literature that urban accessibility has a mature evaluation system,...

The demand in global trade of goods is thriving in the recent post-COVID times and is forecast to increase to the highest levels of the past decade. This calls for global transportation companies to implement increasingly efficient and highly optimized transportation processes to fulfill both demand and their need for economic and environmental...

In this work the possibility for use of the satellite remote sensing instrument TROPOMI to detect NOx emissions from en-route aviation is assessed. Analysis of aviation intensity, quality of satellite retrievals, and emissions from non-aviation anthropogenic sources showed that the North Atlantic, including the North Atlantic Flight Corridor,...

The issue of space debris in Low Earth Orbit is a growing concern that requires comprehensive solutions. This includes preventing further pollution, removing existing debris, and designing resilient spacecraft that can withstand impacts. This thesis focuses on the improvement of spacecraft shielding structures to provide effective protection...

Air transport has gone from a once in a lifetime experience for the extremely rich to a day to day method of transportation for everybody. With the increase in passenger movements the amount of baggage that goes through airports has increased as well. This could cause problems for airports if they have a limited capacity in one of the parts of...

Introduction - Hydrofoils are often used for high-performance craft. They enable the hull to rise out of the water and reduce drag. A recurring problem is ventilation, this is the presence of a cavity filled with ambient air on the lifting surface. Ventilation causes the lift of the hydrofoil to decrease drastically. A lot of research has been...

Recent studies have shown the feasibility of differential dynamic programming (DDP) in optimizing Earth-centered solar-sail trajectories. In order to further demonstrate the ability of DDP in the optimization of solar-sail trajectories, this work investigates the performance of DDP for optimizing interplanetary solar-sail trajectories. The...

Open Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy (OWHTO) is an extensively used, effective treatment option for medical conditions such as medial knee osteoarthritis and varus malalignment. The current developments in the 3D printing industry facilitated using 3D printed patient-specific guides (PSSGs), making OWHTO a desirable treatment option. Although the...

The angular momentum or swirl in the propeller slipstream is an energy loss. An effective method to recover the swirl and increase the propulsive efficiency is to use Swirl Recovery Vanes (SRVs). Former research showed an over-prediction in SRV thrust by a lifting line theory (LLT) model compared to wind tunnel experiments. The LLT model assumes...

Traversability estimation is a key component in autonomous driving tasks. In many applications, semantic segmentation is used to pixel-wise classify a visual scene. The pixel-wise segmented map is used to estimate the traversability of different environments. The semantic segmentation accuracy can drop if environmental conditions change. The...

The Kuiper belt is one of the last mostly unexplored regions in the Solar System. Exploration of the Kuiper belt can greatly increase humanity's understanding of the Solar System's formation and evolution. The use of low-thrust propulsion for Kuiper belt missions has the potential to improve the payload mass of the mission due to the high...

Cardiothoracic surgery is a common treatment for cardiovascular diseases. Patients are admitted to the ICU after cardiothoracic surgery for continuous monitoring to prevent or treat postoperative complications as much and as soon as possible. One of these complications is the development of circulatory shock. It is likely caused by one or a...

Cutter suction dredgers (CSD) are highly vulnerable to large wave loading due to their stiff, spud-based mooring. Many mitigations targeted at reducing the resulting stresses on the spud and other critical operating components have been proposed in recent years, most notably by adding a level of flexibility to the connection between the pontoon...

Ceramic ultrafiltration is a promising technology for water reclamation, but issues with membrane fouling and the removal of organic micro-pollutants have limited its development. Recent research has shown that catalysis-based ultrafiltration has the potential to address these problems. In this study, catalysis-modified (CuFe2O4 and Pd)...

Mental health among young adults is in sharp decline, with over 68% of young adults in Europe reporting signs of burnout in the past year (Strava, 2021). This increasing prevalence of mental health problems among young adults, including burnout, anxiety, depression and feelings of hopelessness, has been exacerbated by factors such as the COVID...

Solar and wind will displace fossil fuels as the main source of energy in a net-zero world. However, renewable energy sources provide intermittent power, hence an energy carrier that enables the balancing of demand and supply is needed. Here green hydrogen comes in place. <br/>In addition, the demand for green hydrogen is expected to rise in the...

Concrete half-joints are a specific support detail in reinforced concrete structures, which reduce the construction height of the total structure. The use of concrete half-joints became popular around 1950s, but decreased its interest as a result of new insights on structural behaviour and collapses of these structures. Typical issues regarding...

Recycled aggregate concrete is emphasized more and more nowadays due to its importance towards the construction industry and general welfare of our planet. Being such a significant feature with regard to universal sustainable development, every aspect of its properties should be evaluated, examined and optimized so that there is a well-known,...

The process of salvaging wrecks can be costly and time-consuming, making it crucial for salvagers to select the appropriate technique(s) and accurately estimate the total costs to minimize expenses and optimize efficiency. Salvagers typically use their expertise, experience, and data from previous projects to make these estimates. Diamond wire...

The European Union has set out to become carbon neutral by 2050. To reach this goal, the fossil-fuel-dominated energy system must be transformed into a low-carbon renewable-based energy system. One method proposed to reduce fossil-fuel dependence is to establish a renewable hydrogen supply chain between Africa and the European Union. This work...
