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...

Over the last three decades the beach area of Piçarras has undergone large changes. The river Piçarras was fixed which caused severe erosion problems. With large nourishment projects the municipality tried to create a sustainable beach area. However, these nourishments did not form a long term solution, which means that, until the present day,...

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...

Clients and vessel manufacturers are always looking for ways to increase the performance of their fleet. Therefore, a novel modelling strategy for the propulsion plant of naval vessels is explored here. This has been done by using the Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) framework. On one hand, a non-linear description is needed to fully understand...

The project represents the twofold condition present in the system of finance, the creditor and the debtor. The creditor and the debtor are two sides to the same medal; one cannot exist without the other. The different manifestations of the system of finance are a reflection of the different relations between the creditor and the debtor. The...

Injuries are a sportsman’s worst nightmare: They withhold players from playing, they weaken teams and they force clubs to buy a bench-full of substitutes. On top of that, injuries can cause an awful lot of pain. Regulating match and training intensity can drastically decrease the risk of getting injured. Furthermore, it can optimally prepare...

Gas flow in fractured nano-porous shale formations is complicated by a hierarchy of structural features, ranging from nanopores to microseismic and hydraulic fractures, and by several transport mechanisms that differ from standard viscous flow used in reservoir modelling. In small pores, self-diffusion becomes more important than advection, also...

This master thesis provides details on the development of a personalised home security solution for the company HomeWizard. The current alarm system market focuses on products that recognise a burglary and then signal the user. The used technology has been around for quite some time and the modular approach of most products allow the user to...

Space debris, composed of man-made objects orbiting around Earth in an uncontrolled fashion, represents a critical issue for long-term sustainability of outer space activities and for space safety. A reliable and accurate mapping and monitoring of space debris is therefore a critical necessity for modern space industry. For relatively low...

A crown wall is a gravity based L- shaped concrete structure on top of a rubble mound breakwater. Functions of a crown wall are: reduction of wave overtopping, enable transport on the breakwater and placement of pipelines on top of the flat surface. Marine contractor Van Oord was awarded to extend a breakwater with a crown wall on top, located...
