This paper presents a trajectory optimization study that has been conducted using a recently developed tool for the synthesis and analysis of extended flight formations of long-haul commercial aircraft, with the aim to minimize overall fuel consumption. In extended flight formations, trailing aircraft can attain an appreciable reduction in...

The steep rise of advanced technology in healthcare and the required spe- cialisation of staff causes healthcare systems to have become increasingly complex. This increased complexity poses great challenges on the risk management of systems. Many different methods have been developed the past decennia to identify potential risks in these system...

Previous work [1] has demonstrated the possibility of high resolution imaging through the use of a single element and a aberration mask. This thesis will expand on the previous work by examining the proposed method for errors in the creation of the model. The analysis is preformed by examining the various aspects of the measurements setup and...

The number of households in Amsterdam has decreased significantly over the past few years. This trend seems to continue and may result in an unbalanced age composition within the city. The design of the apartment complex NEST 020 contributes to the preservation of families in the city.

Thermospheric wind measurements obtained from linear non-gravitational accelerations of the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) satellite show discrepancies when compared to ground-based measurements. In this paper the cross-wind is derived from both the linear and the angular accelerations using a newly developed...

Besides wastewater and rainwater, the sewers in the Netherlands also transport a lot of water that is not supposed to be in the sewer. This water is called extraneous water and is the result of unwanted discharges in the sewer system. This could be groundwater infiltrating leaky sewer pipes, or pumped from construction sites directly into the...

For decades, scientists and engineers are searching for a safe and environmentally friendly alternative for the toxic chromate corrosion inhibitors in active protective coatings for the protection of aerospace aluminium alloys. In this search many different compounds have been investigated as leachable corrosion inhibitor, but no alternative...

The Organic Rankine Cycle Hybrid Integrated Device (ORCHID) is a small scale power plant that is used to study the fundamental gas dynamic behavior of dense organic fluids, as well as the behavior of turbomachinery. In order to draw accurate conclusions about the raw sensor data generated by the ORCHID one has to know when the system is in...

Significant reduction of the rate of erosion of a sand bed is obtained when sand is mixed with a small amount of bentonite. In previous experiments this behaviour has already been shown for relatively low flow velocities. In this case, the erosion process is dominated by grain-by-grain erosion, which is characterised by low ratios of the...

Chemical throwing power, being the distance over which an inhibitor is able to protect a defect effectively, is an important parameter for active protective coatings. This study investigates the chemical throwing power of lithium-based leachable corrosion inhibitors exhibiting different leaching kinetics, from coatings at different inhibitor...

This paper presents an analysis of the ionospheric corrections required to get a significant improvement in PPP-RTK performance. The main aim was to determine the improvement in the position precision and Time-To-First-Fix in the PPP-RTK user side using ionospheric corrections computed from a network. The study consists of two main steps. The...

In low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), diagnostics are not always available in remote areas. Hospitals and healthcare centres are often too far from the community, and waiting times are up to a few hours even for relatively simple procedures. Moreover, travelling to the healthcare centre and taking the diagnostic test is frequently...

Precise orbit determination was investigated for a satellite constellation comprised of two different missions, the CHAllenging Minisatellite Payload (CHAMP) satellite and the Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment (GRACE) twin satellites. The orbital planes of these two missions aligned closely during March to May 2005, allowing precise...

This study presents the active protective properties of lithium-leaching coatings for a range of aluminium alloys. Coatings with and without lithium carbonate as leachable inhibitor were applied on the aluminium alloys, artificially damaged and exposed to the neutral salt spray. A combined approach of scanning electron microscopy and...

During standard expansion culture (i.e., plasma osmolarity, 280 mOsm) human articular chondrocytes dedifferentiate, making them inappropriate for autologous chondrocyte implantation to treat cartilage defects. Increasing the osmolarity of culture media to physiological osmolarity levels of cartilage (i.e., 380 mOsm), increases collagen type...

High performance control allocation methods for the Innovative Control Effectors (ICE) aircraft require accurate onboard aerodynamic models, with preferably first order continuity. Simplotope B-Splines, an extension on Simplex B-Splines, have a high approximation power by using local cost functions. However, enforcing global continuity produces...

Baseline determination for the European Space Agency Swarm magnetic field mission is investigated. Swarm consists of three identical satellites -A, -B and -C. The Swarm-A and -C form a pendulum formation whose baseline length varies between about 30 and 180 km. Swarm-B flies in a higher orbit, causing its orbital plane to slowly rotate with...

Direct internal reforming enables optimal heat integration and reduced complexity in solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC)systems, but thermal stresses induced by the increased temperature gradients may inflict damage to the stack. Therefore, the development of adequate control strategies requires models that can accurately predict the temperature...

Recently, the horizontal and vertical cross wind at 225- to 295-km altitude were derived from linear acceleration measurements of the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer satellite. The vertical component of these wind data is compared to wind data derived from the mass spectrometers of the Atmosphere Explorer C and E and...
