To this end, the central aim of this research has been to explore ways for designers to incorporate ethics into their design process. A practice-based research methodology has been employed, with research methods including interviews, case studies and observations. A range of case studies has been executed at the faculty of Industrial Design...

Experiments in a closed-cycle cryostat suffer from vibrations caused by its pulse tube. To reduce this disturbance, a vibration isolator needs to be placed inside the cryostat. Since mechanical dampers do not work in a cryogenic environment, it requires active damping. This thesis is about the design of a controller for such an active vibration...

Pressure locked gratings have many uses, both on land and at sea. This is mainly due to the high degree of flexibility in dimensions and load bearing capacity. Despite the many uses in our surroundings, the term pressure locked grating is unknown to many. This term refers to the way in which the most important connection in pressure locked...

Aeroelastic analyses traditionally consider the airfoil of a wing to remain rigid, only allowing deformation in the span-wise direction of the wing. Recent investigations have shown the benefits of adding chord-wise flexibility in the trailing edge of a wing, however so far only two-dimensional studies have been carried out. Therefore, the...

Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMwPE) fibers are well known for their very high specific mechanical properties such as tensile strength and Young’s modulus. The solution spinning/solid state drawing process invented in the late 70s at DSM enables the production of these UHMwPE fibers with outstanding mechanical properties. The...

Sealing constructions are frequently used in reusable instruments to prevent the loss of fluids or gasses in a construction by obstructing flow through the glands in the interface of two or more separate parts, and may be applied to seal patients' body fluids. Patient material contains various types of microorganisms, and with the increase of...

In order to interact with environments and appliances made for humans, robots should be able to manipulate a large variety of objects and appliances in human environments. When having experience with manipulating a certain object or appliance, a robot should be able to generalize this behaviour to novel, but similar objects and appliances. When...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a renewable energy technology which can operate as a base load source of energy in equatorial areas. By converting the thermal energy of the sun stored in the oceans into electricity, this technology provides a sustainable solution for tropical islands. One of the key factor to accelerate the roadmap...

De wereldwijde verstedelijking heeft onder andere als gevolg dat er een toename is in het temperatuurverschil tussen het platteland en de binnenstad, ook wel het Urban Heat Island effect genoemd. In combinatie met de toenemende opwarming van de aarde zal het Urban Heat Island effect de komende jaren extremer worden, met onder andere als gevolg...

In this report, a least-squares approach is described for retrieving the 3D structure of the electron concentration in the Earth’s upper ionosphere and plasmasphere, using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data-sets from Low-Earth-Orbiting (LEO) satellites. Due to the lack of horizontal radio wave geometries, the method uses assumptions...

Compliance with energy zero buildings is forcing the buildings to transform into energetic plants, which combined with the need for a circular resource conscious economy, seeks for revised forms of a technical energy efficient façade and innovative business models. Due to this, BIPV technologies implementation in the façade are studied under the...

Sand dikes have a sand core and a clay layer to protect the core against erosion. It is not unlikely that this layer fails due to several failure mechanisms, exposing the sand core to water. This can be catastrophically when water is overtopping the dike. In case the protective cover fails, water can flow over the core and erode the sand,...

A large-scale nourishment known as the Sand Motor has been implemented along the Dutch coast as a Building with Nature solution designed for the upcoming 20 years. Given the long-term period of the project, a combination of in situ measurements and remote sensing techniques are currently in use. An X-band radar system is deployed at the Sand...

Sometimes a complex combinatorial problem has easily identifiable subproblems for which methods are available. Often, strong interactions between these subproblems prevent us to use these methods in a straightforward way. In railway industry, finding a schedule for train service and shunting tasks is an example of such a problem with clearly...

: The majority of trucks is equipped with an external sun visor. The design of this product has not changed significantly since its first introduction around 1950. Despite the availability of alternative products such as tinted windows, users often make the decision to purchase this optional part. The truck industry is focusing increasingly on...
