De sleephopperzuiger "Volvox Terranova" is eigendom van Van Oord ACZ en heeft een laadcapaciteit van 20.000 m3. Na het walpersen van de lading blijft een restlading over van ca. ---m3. Het doel van dit onderzoek is een voorstel tot aanpassing van de "Volvox Terranova" te presenteren om de restlading te minimaliseren, zonder de leegzuigproductie...

Determining the way to make a reclamation project with many excavation areas or borrow areas, and several pieces of dredging equipment at minimum costs takes too much time to do by hand. A linear programming application is made to support the allocation of excavation areas and pieces of equipment to reclamation areas. Such an application was...

The use of smart well technology to optimize water flooding introduces a large number of control parameters both in space (well segments) and time. The problem of finding the optimal control parameters to maximize net present value as an objective function can be solved with the aid of a gradient-based optimization method. Using too many...

Design of a sun shading system which is optimized to generate as much energy as possible. This has been done by calculating the optimal size and positioning of the slats. The user also played a central role in the design process. Not only the design of the slats is innovative, also the way they are connected to the glass facade. This is done by...

As we move towards an aging population, it is likely that an increasing number of people will require an increasing diversity of implants, but at a lower cost to the society. Also, as computer technology progresses, smaller, more powerful, and less battery intensive implants can be designed. However, present implant design methodology is highly...

This MSc thesis reports the results on optimizing the Al-Shaheen field performance using smart well technology. The field is currently being developed by Maersk Oil and Gas (MOG) offshore Qatar, using large-scale water injection on very long horizontal wells. The studied reservoir consists of a laterally uniform, tight matrix. However, undesired...

Breast cancer is the most common malignant tumor among women today. Available techniques for treating breast cancer often introduce strong side effects. The non-invasive electromagnetic ablation of breast tumors has a lot of potential, because it can provide a quick treatment modality without introducing harmful side effects. In this project we...

Population growth and immigration increase the demand for mass housing developments all over the world. These developments are widely criticized for being mono-functional, mono-typological, and mono-cultural. This project is a design method for a new kind of mass housing. All design rules are reformulated as algorithms, that interact with each...

A powerful combination of simulation and optimization has been successfully applied to solve real-world decision making problems (Fu et al., 2000; Fu, Glover, & April, 2005). Unfortunately, there are scientific and application problems with this method. Firstly, there is no transparent and formal structure to define the integration between...

The strong search for lightweight materials has become a trend in the aerospace industry. Aircraft manufacturers are responding to this trend and new aerospace materials are introduced to build lighter aircrafts. However material manufacturers, like Tata Steel, are unfamiliar with the determination of running loads and the behavior of materials...

Traditionally, the aircraft design process is divided into three phases: conceptual, preliminary and detailed design. In each subsequent phase, the fidelity of the analysis tools increases and more and more details of the design geometry are frozen. In each phase a number of design variants is generated, fully analyzing them with the tools...

The electricity sector in Spain had been evolving steadily in an ascendant rate since the liberalization in late 90’s. Demand was expected to keep growing but it suddenly dropped in 2009 creating an unbalance in the system in terms of demand and capacity available. In addition the increasing share of renewable energy contribution has also...

In the optimization of open pit mine design, the Lerchs-Grossmann algorithm is the industry standard, although network flow algorithms are also well suited, efficient, and known. The stochastic version of the conventional (deterministic) network flow algorithm is based on the use of multiple simulated realizations of the ore deposit, thus...

Recent improvements in dynamic reservoir modeling have led to an increase in the application of model-based optimization of hydrocarbon bearing reservoirs. Numerous studies and articles have indicated the possibility of improving reservoir management using these dynamic models, coupled with methods to reduce uncertainties in the static models,...
