Interstitial free (IF) steel is widely used in the automobile industry for car outer panel because of its good formability. Recently automotive industry pays more attention to paint appearance, and therefore demands good waviness performance of sheet steels after stamping. This thesis aims to study the factors in the microstructure that...

Static balancing is a technique to create static equilibrium in a mechanism for any configuration. Auxiliary links and many springs are usually added to achieve static balance for spatial parallel mechanisms. This increases inertia and complexity of the system. This paper first presents a theoretically perfect static balancing solution for a...

Because of its proven beneficial material properties, Alloy 617 is the most promising material for the use in pressurised steam boiler components subject to cyclic loads and temperatures that are increasing due to an improved process efficiency. The result of this research project is the successful expression of the material properties of Alloy...

This thesis shows the process and results of a graduation project on redesigning WOW-NL, a crowdsource platform that collects weather data for KNMI. The first phase consists of an analysis on the value that the WOW-NL platform creates for KNMI and the users. Internal and external research was conducted to understand the context and the...

Our world is faced with a major challenge: anthropogenic climate change. This is a result of our continued use of fossil fuels, causing the emission of greenhouse gasses into our atmosphere, thereby adding to global warming. An important part of these decarbonisation strategies is the production of electricity from renewable energy sources and...

The aim of this thesis is to provide a robust and globally optimal method for rigid point set registration in the presence of outliers and structured noise. The registration of 2D or 3D point sets is a common problem in computer vision [9], with applications that include aligning MRI/CT scans, and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) in...

Multipurpose vessels have the ability to carry multiple types of cargo. The larger quantities of cargoes are often transported by larger (more specialized) vessels such as bulk carriers and dedicated container vessels, but there are often a lot of small quantities of cargo that are too small for this type of vessels. That is where the...

The Blade Element Momentum (BEM) theory is widely used for the design of wind turbine blades and predicting aerodynamic loads because of its ability to compute fast and reasonable results. However, the Prandtl tip loss factor is needed to improve the accuracy of the results near the tip. In this thesis the limitations and shortcomings of this...

This report shows an approach taken in the building of a dynamic lighting design that focuses on how to make people feel better. Therefore a design is proposed that provides the right light for every time of the day. With an analysis the lighting field is explored. This analysis contains several aspects. Analysing trends determined which market...

Defects are produced when lifting lugs being welded on ship sections during the building process. The large amount of heat produced in the welding work causes “heat affected zone” in the base metal on sections and destroys painted coatings on the plates; and residual stress decreases the mechanical performance of the steel plates. To eliminate...

Optical systems in high precision equipment become increasingly more complex due to the raising number of optical mounts used for mounting and positioning of optical components. Additional, the installation of electronics and inert gas purging systems to protect the optics against the abrasive optical beam extends the amount of components in the...

From the results it can be concluded that a fixed and a free voice-coil actuated impact drive mechanism can be used as a positioning system in a precision environment, such as the semiconductor industry and extreme large telescopes, to position an object within 1 nanometer and hold the position passively stable within 10nm/hr. The empirically...

The memory-wall problem is a big challenge that classical Von Neumann-based computer systems face. This problem is caused by the increasing performance gap between the main memory and the central processing unit. The novel Computation-in-Memory (CiM) architecture can solve the memory wall problem by using emerging memristor technology to perform...

To compensate the heaving motion of a payload during deep water offshore installations, hanging from an on-board crane on a monohull vessel, a new concept is being investigated. By actively rolling the vessel using ballasting systems, the coupled heave motion of the crane tip can be reduced significantly. This is investigated by building a...
