In practice, cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) power cables can be subjected to alternating voltage with superimposed impulse transients. Such impulse transients may initiate partial discharges (PD) in insulation defects even below AC inception voltage. An initiated PD may persist under AC, which will cause insulation degradation. This paper...

) definition is proposed for 2-D etched micromodels. We derive the new definition from a force balance on a nonwetting ganglion trapped by capillarity. It incorporates the impact of pore microstructure on mobilization. The geometrical factors introduced can be estimated directly from image analysis of...

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), also known as brittle bone disease, affects 1 in 10.000 births. This disease is characterized by skeletal dysplasias, bone fragility and many secondary health issues. It is a heritable disorder affecting collagen type I, which is an essential protein in bone tissue. Post-translational overmodifications in collagen...

This report contains the conceptual lay-out for two possible expansions of the port of Bahía Blanca. To determine the best conceptual lay-outs, emphasis is drawn to understand the physical system to determine the effect of the expansion of the port on the natural system. The port of Bahía Blanca is situated at the end of a ria, or tidal basin....

Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores, are wounds that form when a person sits or lays in the same
posture for an extended period of time. Continued pressure being applied to the same spot causes
the skin to decay, possibly continuing into underlaying tissue if the wounds are not treated. A common
and proven practice to prevent...

Water Treatment Plants (WTPs) play a key role in assuring water availability to citizens and businesses. Long term availability of these plants is the interest of the asset manager of a WTP and can be influenced by maintenance strategies and modifications of the system. A WTP is characterized by a complex configuration and repairable,...

Many cities in the Netherlands have poor areas that have to deal with a lot of social problems. One of the approaches that policymakers use to improve these areas is the so- called gentrification approach. In this approach policy makers renovate and rebuild parts of the neighborhoods in order to attract more ‘better educated’ citizens to these...

Neoclassical economics dictates the decision-making process of economic agents as the mathematical problem of maximizing utility over a prescribed planning horizon. The mathematical similarities with optimal control theory lead to a new interpretation of economic agents as optimal controllers. Pontryagin's maximum principle generates the...

Land subsidence in low-lying peatlands can be caused by shrinkage and organic matter oxidation. When these areas have networks of ditches and canals for drainage purposes, the sediments that accumulate in the waterways can be used to reverse the process of land subsidence. The objective of this study is to understand how dredged sediments can...

In developing countries, prosthetic workshops are limited, difficult to reach, or even non-existent. Especially, fabrication of active, multi-articulated, and personalized hand prosthetic devices is often seen as a time-consuming and demanding process. An active prosthetic hand made through the fused deposition modelling technology and fully...

When teaching novices programming, misconceptions can occur. Misconception are incorrect beliefs about certain programming concept. For example, some novices think that a variable can hold multiple values, in the case of two consecutive assignment statements, such as x = 5; x = 7. While explaining variables introductory materials often use...

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is often theorized to be an ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament (ALL). Using computed tomography (CT) imaging and cryomacrotome sectioning, we investigated the spatial relationship between the ALL and newly formed bone in DISH to test this hypothesis. In the current study, four...

Follow-the-leader propagation allows for the insertion of flexible surgical instruments along curved paths, reducing the access required for natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery. Currently, the most promising follow-the-leader instruments use the alternating memory method containing two mechanical memory-banks for controlling the...

The mobilization of the trapped residual oil is an important part of Enhanced Oil Recovery. The desaturation of nonwetting fluids from porous media is often described using capillary numbers which are a ratio of viscous forces over the capillary forces between the wetting and the nonwetting fluids. Twodimensional microfluidic devices ...

This master thesis discusses the design of a 3D printed integrated miniature valve to control the air and flow rate in pneumatic soft robotics. The valve is able to control multiple bellows from inside the body of the soft robotic by only using one tube of air supply. The valves are actuated by Shape Memory Alloy actuator wires, named Flexinol....
