In order to meet future energy demand, a more sustainable energy society is essential because fossil fuel reserves are depleting while the total energy consumption worldwide increases. One type of renewable energy which can play a role is ocean energy having the theoretical potential to exceed both current and future human energy needs. This...

Interplanetary missions use gravitational slingshots around planetary bodies to adjust their heliocentric velocity or inclination for quite some time. The momentum exchange that can be achieved during a so-called gravity assist is limited by the mass of the planetary body. To overcome this limitation, an aerogravity assist was proposed, a...

A high percentage of hospital admissions is due to surgical interventions. The operating theatre, which holds the operating rooms (ORs), is therefore one of the key resources in hospitals. Managing the operating theatre and finding an optimal OR schedule is complex due to the many factors that influence it. Scheduling a surgery in an OR...

Research shows that the fatigue strength of a Very High Strength Steel (VHSS) can be significantly negatively effected by welds in a structure. The fatigue lifetime may be extended after cracking occurs by means of fatigue crack repair. A better insight by means of Finite ElementModelling (FEM) can help in understanding the effects of a repair...

Architecture and real estate are one thing, both dealing with built environment. One is embedded in the other, yet not always present. Many complaints from architecture professionals can be heard about the power and negative impact of real estate on architecture and cities, but only few actually become involved in this issue. The building...

Spaceplane designers need to be able to rapidly obtain estimations of aerodynamic and stability parameters throughout the re-entry flight. This aids with design changes and trade-offs regarding the stability characteristics of the design. This software was developed with a focus on stability analysis in the Terminal Area Energy Management phase ...

Additional thesis - The Rhine river outflow has a major impact on the North Sea in front of the Dutch coast. It creates the Rhine ROFI (region of freshwater influence), a very complex three-dimensional volume of water with a relatively low salinity. Many researches have been conducted on this phenomenon. Now another complex factor is added: a...

River systems are vastly changing environments, not only due to natural process, but also human intervention plays an important role. With the many different river functions at play, large amounts of maintenance budgets are associated with river management. For decision makers it is important to know expected costs or losses and the spread...

The subject of this master thesis is related to the passive suction under mud mats. Mud mats are used in the offshore industry to prevent structures from sinking in the soil after installation. If for some reason a structure has to be lifted, on the one side due to an installation error, on the other side due to removal the force needed to lift...

Introduction: Diarrhoea is currently the second major cause of child mortality, which mostly affects children in developing countries. Dehydration is the major risk involved with diarrhoea, which is therefore the actual cause of death in most cases. Currently there are no cheap and reliable methods for assessing dehydration, while dehydration...

The Emergency Department (ED) treats patients who have acute conditions and operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. At the ED department at the University Medical Centre Utrecht (UMCU), the patients are treated in single rooms. There is not always direct contact between patients and the ED team, because the team is responsible for...

Vibrations can be a limiting factor in systems working with nanometer precision. Inertial sensors are used to measure these vibrations. This thesis presents a hybrid inertial sensor using both a displacement and velocity measurement on a single mass-spring system. The measurements are combined into one output of absolute displacement. A...

Electricity can not be stored efficiently in the grid, resulting in a need for demand and supply to be in balance. The Transmission System Operator operates a real-time electricity market to acquire extra supply or load. Traditionally, electricity usage is forecast as accurately as possible a day ahead and deviations from this electricity...
