The growth of the cruise industry throughout recent years and the changing public opinion on cruise ships has led to increasing concerns regarding the impact cruise vessels have on the world’s climate and environ- ment. Cruise passengers prefer not to be related with heavy polluting vessels. In fact, trends like responsible tourism and...

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...

To reduce the necessary input force of the user to exert a precision grip force above 30 N, the hydraulic circuit of the Delft Cylinder Hand can be expanded. This added hydraulic circuit has to be able to generate high enough pressures and volume flows to generate a pinch force of 30 N with all of the fingers, close the hand within 0.5 seconds...

Stall is traditionally divided in three types of stall behaviour, these have been regarded as two dimensional and dominated by the airfoil shape. However one of these types of stall behaviour, trailing edge stall, has been shown in literature to be three dimensional by forming stall cells along the wing span. Stall cells are coherent flow...

The offshore wind energy market is highly dynamic and one of the major challenges is to become more cost competitive against other sources of energy. The support structure of an offshore wind turbine shows a high potential for further cost reduction. Jules Dock is investigating in the replacement of a steel tower on a monopile foundation by a...

Considering the abundance of viscoelastic fluids in nature, growing attention has been received for the study of microorganisms in viscoelastic fluids. In Newtonian fluids, the flow of microorganisms is governed by the viscosity alone. But in viscoelastic fluids, the addition of the elastic component complicates the situation. The flow of the...

One of the most important reasons to investigating fuel cells is the increased level of regulation regarding emissions in the maritime sector, while fuel cells offer the opportunity to reduce these emissions. It was not clear what the impact of these systems would be on a yacht, the aim of this project is therefore to gain more insight into...

Biologically plausible representations have been found to emerge in particular recurrent neural networks when training on path-integration [1, 2]. This report explores factors influencing the occurrence of entorhinal-like representations in recurrent neural networks. Reproducing simplified models from existing studies and created a hybrid model...

In recent years, the energy transition has led to increasingly higher installed capacities of intermittent renewable energy sources. This has sparked the interest in power-to-fuel technology to store excess renewable energy in the chemical bonds of synthetic fuels. As a highly reactive, turn-key process, plasma-chemical conversion offers a...

Structural members carrying dominantly compressive forces are present in many types of structure. These members are referred to as columns and are frequently present in for example lifting appliances and offshore structures. Whether or not a column consists of longitudinally welded subsections is relevant for its mechanical performance in...

Disinformation is a problem that has become more relevant over the past years. Also the European Union tried and is trying to deal with this problem by introducing multiple policy actions. However, the impact and usefulness of these policies is not clear. This thesis uses a combination of stakeholder analysis, interviews and systems thinking to...

Because of the transfer from brick-and-mortar stores to the web, tourism companies have had an increasing need for good recommendation systems to help the users of their websites find what they want. When developing a recommendation system for tourism, we run into a couple of problems that we would not run into when developing it for e-commerce....

Adhesively bonded joints have proven to outperform their mechanically fastened joint counterparts, as they present a more structurally efficient method of load transfer, lower stress concentrations and better fatigue performance at reduced weight. In the specific case of the Adhesively Bonded Single Lap Joint (ABSLJ), bending-induced stresses...

Context: The shift to green energy offers a need for offshore wind farms. The transition from a relatively cheap energy production from carbohydrates, to a young offshore wind energy industry needs innovations to lower the cost. Increasing the efficiency of wind turbines and lowering the installation cost of a wind farm, will eventually make...

High penetration of rooftop PV generation in the distribution network increases the variability of power flows and the frequency of network and hence congestions occurs at various network locations of the network. Congestions have various defects such as it deteriorates network performance, power quality and therefore can lead to a shutdown by...
