The growth of the cruise industry throughout recent years and the changing public opinion on cruise ships has led to increasing concerns regarding the impact cruise vessels have on the world’s climate and environ- ment. Cruise passengers prefer not to be related with heavy polluting vessels. In fact, trends like responsible tourism and...

Performance of set based fault detection is highly dependent on the complexity of the set bounding methods used to bound the healthy residual set. Existing methods achieve robust performance with complex set bounding that narrowly define healthy system behavior, yet at the cost of higher computation times. In this thesis a major improvement is...

Automated shipping is a technology which is highly anticipated by many actors in the inland shipping sector. Rijkswaterstaat, as the manager of the main inland waterways in the Netherlands, wants to be prepared for this technology. As the technology is still very immature, this research has attempted to reduce the amount of uncertainty in the...

Jumbo Maritime is a shipping company active in the heavy lifting market. Jumbo uses stabilisers to enlarge the stability of the ship during lifting. By using stabilisers Jumbo can perform heavy lifts with a relative small ship, this is one of the major advantages. Downside of using stabilisers is that the installation and de-installation is a...

In Chapter 1, the focus is on the classification of force generators, which is the family of mechanisms to which balancers belong to. The goal of this chapter is to introduce a bottom-up classification method to identify the complete solutions space of transmissions in force generators based on their transfer function. Using this method, spring...

Multi-step optimization of large composite structures involves formulating the stiffness distribution in terms of lamination parameters that provide a continuous design space, followed by a second optimization in the discrete design space to obtain equivalent stacking sequences. The retrieval of stacking sequences is often challenging as a...

Our research focuses on speech detection from body movements using wearable accelerometer data collected in an in-the-wild mingling event. We aim to explore the nature of the connection between speech and body movements. More specifically, we stress on the person-specificity of speech. Many studies have shown that speech always comes along with...

Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) could turn an electric vehicle (EV) into a potential source of flexibility, in order to deal with the variability and uncertainty in electricity supply brought about by renewable energy sources and the load increase caused by the adoption of EVs. However, only a few studies have focussed on the complexity of EV drivers’...

The inertial parameters of a vehicle, which include the mass, centre of gravity position and the moments of inertia, influences the dynamics of the vehicle. Currently, the modelling of the vehicle is done by assuming fixed, conservative, values for the inertial parameters. Knowing the exact values may increase the performance, safety and comfort...

PURPOSE. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the possibility of implementing a prototype of a steerable needle in a medical procedure. Therefore the two main research questions are: “Can the intended user perform a steering motion with the steerable needle and reach the target area following a straight and curved trajectory?” and “Does...

Aircraft inspections after unexpected incidents, like lightning strikes, currently require a timeconsuming and costly inspection process, due to the small size of the lightning strike damages. Mainblades Inspections is working on an automated, drone-based solution, that scans the aircraft hull with a high-resolution camera. The objective of this...

This study investigates the wing deformation of the flapping-wing micro air vehicle (MAV) DelFly II in various flight configurations. Experiments were carried out with the MAV tethered in a windtunnel test section. To determine the best suited measurement approach, a trade-off study was carried out which showed that a point tracking approach...

Monitoring organisations are currently in a transition phase towards risk-based inspections using data models and algorithms in order to increase their efficiency and transparancy. The use of data by monitoring organisations has several benefits, but can at the same time have negative effects in the medium- to long-term. This study explores...

This thesis investigates the effect of technological progress on the Dutch labour market. For this, a replication of the Frey and Osborne (2013) study on Dutch data is conducted. The application of the FO model has shown that approximately 12\% of the Dutch workers are at high risk of being replaced due to technological developments. Moreover,...

The exceptional flight capabilities of insects have long amazed and inspired researchers and roboticists striving to make Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) smaller and more agile. It is well known that optical flow plays a prominent role in insect flight control and navigation, and hence it is being increasingly investigated for applications in...

As a move away from the natural gas based heating, the Dutch government identified district heating networks as most economical alternative to the natural gas. However, the future plans for the district heating sector have faced challenge on the question of the design of heat market and management of factors such as ownership, network access,...
