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...

Dealing with inherently unmodeled dynamics and large parameter variations or faults, is a challenging task while controlling robot manipulators. Classical control techniques cannot usually provide satisfactory responses, and often external supervision systems have to be designed to handle the faults. Recent research has shown that active...

The scarcity of historical financial data has been a huge hindrance for the development algorithmic trading models ever since the first models were devised. Most financial models assume as hypothesis a series of characteristics regarding the nature of financial time series and seek extracting information about the state of the market through...

In recent years, airlines have increasingly developed the ability to monitor the condition of aircraft components by means of sensors. In turn, aircraft maintenance aims to use this sensor data to predict component failures. However, the challenge remains to make use of these prognostics to generate appropriate maintenance schedules. In this...

As financial markets have evolved and become more digital, the ways of marketing, communication and customer service have also adapted to the times. Customers expect a higher standard from all industries, financial services included. On top of being a nuisance to unsatisfied customers, poor customer service costs industries globally $338.5...

Accurately predicting the ship motions, is essential knowledge when operating in water. To predict the ship motions, multiple ship characteristics have to be known. For the roll motion, one of these characteristics is the roll damping coefficient. Nowadays the industry standard to determine the roll damping coefficient of a ship is by performing...

Vibration energy harvesting is the solution for powering on-road sensor measurements. Various techniques to harvest the most energy from a certain application are found in literature. An electromagnetic energy harvester was found to be the best option for transport applications.
In this work, the potential benefits of a coupled oscillator...

The comfort assessment of ships is based on several criteria. There are for example criteria for motions, noise and vibrations. The criteria for motions are nowadays often defined as comfort limits on the accelerations in the ship motions. However, from other industries it followed that the rate of change of the accelerations, the jerk, can also...

This report presents a new filter wheel design for use in space-based optical systems. The design integrates a hybrid linear stepper motor into the wheel's rim to generate rotation, leading to a Rotating Hybrid Linear Stepper Motor (RHLSM). Unpowered this motor generates a holding force that can keep the wheel in position during system...

Emissions restrictions imposed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is forcing ship owners and builders to look into alternative fuels and prime movers. The high efficiency of fuel cells could help to decrease emissions in marine power generation. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are the most fuel flexible among fuel cells, the high...

The amount of personal imagery kept on (mobile) devices is increasing by the day. Analysis and organization of these large collections of data are becoming increasingly important in the field of digital forensics, as they can aid in the search for legal evidence. The grouping of faces based on their identity is an important aspect as it provides...

In this thesis, prediction of romantic, social and sexual attraction between two people using bodily coordination features is studied. Attraction is one type of interest that can occur between interacting people and understanding the modeling of it can help understand how to model other types of interests in human-human interactions because...

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017 went to the development of cryo-electron microscopy, which contributed to the discovery of new cells and viruses, the diagnosis of unknown diseases, the mapping of human genomes and the manufacturing of semiconductors. Cryo Correlative light and electron microscopy (Cryo-CLEM), is the combination of using...

Air forces demand aircraft availability for their operations. In order to increase this availability, there is a need for insight in the effect of environmental conditions on the usage profiles of components and systems. Existing frameworks and standards only provide for static environmental effects on component degradation. The research...

The accumulation of natural and persistent anthropogenic debris in particular, within aquatic ecosystems, brings along a myriad of ramifications. By reducing these debris, damage to nautical vessels and harm to marine life can be mitigated. Rivers are an important pathway of debris towards coastal harbors, ports and marine ecosystems. To...

The Earth is subjected to 100,000 year cycles of glaciation and deglaciation. The deformations induced by glacial and oceanic loading and the continuous attempt at recovery of the isostatic equilibrium within the solid Earth, are referred to as Glacial Isostatic Adjustment (GIA). This process is ongoing still and yields a large contribution to...
