Research about acoustics in heritage. In many of the redeveloped buildings, the acoustic quality is very poor. The reverberant times are very high due to the little amount of absorbing surfaces and some frequencies gain a higher G-strength then other frequencies. This is for a part due to the dimensions of the spaces. For example; churches with...

This paper describes a prediction method for the contribution of the main onboard machinery to the underwater acoustic signature of steel surface vessels that can be used during the design stage. There are two reasons for the development of this method. Firstly, a small acoustic signature is important for naval and research vessels, due to...

Natural Gas (NG) can be used as fuel for several forms of transport. NG converted into liquid is called Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). LNG has a favourable energy density for ease of transport and storage. On the other hand, LNG is cryogenic at -162 °C. To use LNG as fuel, it is required to use an LNG fuel system. An LNG fuel system consists...

Long slender instruments used in Endonasal Surgery have two main limitations, the first being that current instruments have a fixed shape so that difficult positioned lesions cannot be reached. The other limitation is caused by the colliding of instrument shafts when multiple shafts are inserted in the surgical corridor, reducing the instrument...

This thesis consists of multiple approaches to develop a new model to determine the porosity, permeability and the rate of desorption of 1.5-inch shale samples. The raw NMR signal of the sample in the coreholder is measured before methane injection and is used as base signal. During the injection of methane the raw NMR signal increases. The base...

The last few miles when transporting goods are often the most expensive. This is called the `Lastmile' and is under increasing attention in literature and with decision makers. In addition to being expensive the last mile frequently runs through urban areas and contributes to local pollution and congestion. One possible method to increase...

Large-scale coal-fired power plants are typically designed as base-load units. This means that they are traditionally run at continuous high loading levels, most often full-load. The current energy market asks for more flexibility as renewable energy sources continue to penetrate the energy market. Coal-fired power plants are forced to operate...

Keeping maps up to date is quite costly because road geometry changes over time and mapping by professional surveyors is an expensive operation. With the presence of GPS sensors on mobile phones and in most cars today it becomes possible to measure the location of roads with many measurements from sensors of lower accuracy. In this thesis we...

A corporate brand is a complex construct, which might be difficult to manage because of a lack of insight into the network of relevant influencers. Sense Observation Systems (Sense) is a small software company developing software that helps users to get information from the sensor data of their telephones. Sense is aware of the possible threats...

In general the majority of the current economy is a linear economy based on a ‘take-make-dispose” model that relies on easily accessible resources and energy. This creates huge amounts of waste at end of life impacting nature and society. Furthermore resource scarcity is increasingly becoming an issue impacting price and availability of products...

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder for elderly above the age of sixty-five. A Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) surgery is an effective and common solution for moderate to severe osteoarthritis. After THA surgery patients start a rehabilitation phase in which they have to comply to a rehabilitation regimen. This rehabilitation phase...

A fully automatic espresso machine is capable of handling every step from grinding fresh coffee beans to brewing espresso. Sugar and milk are common additives for coffee. Milk is highly perishable but dry milk on the other hand, has a very long shelf life when kept dry and away from light. Dry milk and sugar are not integrated in a fully...

This graduation project contains a masterplan for the urban plot Gershwin, Amsterdam Zuidas, in answer to the economic problems of today that cause a lot of wasteland. To give the area a boost, I introduce hybrid buildings that include urban dwellings. Within a block of 140m x 40m I designed 85 dwellings, commercial units, offices and a parking...

Fault-tolerant On-Board Computer (OBC) software for the Delfi-n3Xt nanosatellite is needed in order to minimize the risk of failures that may occur while the satellite is operating in space. Failures may be OBC specific, but failures that affect the state of the entire satellite and influence the health of the data bus may occur as well. Some...

This document describes the research performed on fault isolation in dynamic distributed systems at runtime. An existing Spectrum-based Multiple Fault Localization approach is used as the basis for fault isolation, but is adapted and optimized so it can be used for online diagnosis. The result is an algorithm, coined AIMBACH, which finds the...
