In this research the role of thick flexible soles in energy-efficient humanoid walking is analyzed. It ismaster thesis 2017
hypothesized that, the addition of underactuated degrees of freedom under the foot gives the robot
the potential to execute a pseudo-passive walking motion 1, which yields a decrease in ankle torque
and energy expenditure....
Improved Flexible Runway Use Modeling: A Multi-Objective Optimization Concerning Pairwise RECAT-EU Separation Minima, Reduced Noise Annoyance and Fuel Consumption at London Heathrowvan der Meijden, S.A. (author)A minimization of disturbance caused by aircraft noise events and a reduction of fuel consumption during the initial and final phase of flight. These are the two objectives that play an important role in the Flexible Runway Allocation Model. By taking into account fuel consumption alongside noise annoyance, this model enables to analyze and...master thesis 2017
