We present a novel DC motor driven soft robotic fish and optimization based on experimental, numerical and theoretical investigation into oscillating propulsion for primarily speed and secondarily efficiency. Our system outperforms the previously fastest soft robotic fish Zhong et al. 2017 by a significant margin of 27%, with speeds up to 0.85m...

The majority of cardiovascular clinical events, which are the main causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide, are caused by atherosclerotic plaque rupture. This biomechanical event occurs when the local plaque stresses exceed its strength. The plaque stresses can be assessed by computational models to predict these events. Current approaches...

This research focuses on the unofficial neighbourhoods on the boarders of South African Cities. The informal settlements are quickly built by unskilled hands on foreign land without any form of planning, supervision or legislation. The self-constructed houses lack of daylight, ventilation and water tightness. This results in poor, unsafe and...

In this thesis the equilibrium cross-sectional areas of a tidal inlet are investigated. The most common used methods to study cross-sectional stability are the Escoffier method (Escoffier, 1940) and the Modified Escoffier method (Van de Kreeke, 2004). The Escoffier methods are mainly empirical and lack physical justification. Therefore, in this...

In the Netherlands, a new assessment method for the required safety level of primary flood defences is introduced in the Water Act. It is estimated that currently roughly 1900 kilometres of flood protection does not meet the safety requirements for the future (Jonkman, Jorissen, Schweckendieck & Van den Bos, 2017). Past flood defence...

In April 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) agreed upon the target to reduce the CO2 emissions from international shipping in 2050 by 50 percent with respect to 2008 levels. The strategy to reach this target consists of the ambition to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across...

This master thesis analyses and proposes a design for a direct air capture (DAC) unit as part of a small scale, solar powered methanol synthesis plant. This project analyses the existing process and design by ZEF BV and explores solutions for mass manufacturing a direct air capture unit. As a result a concept design solution is found and...

Harsh market conditions make optimising the performance in shipping more and more important. Shipping companies are becoming more and more data driven due to developments in data systems and these harsh market conditions. The goal of this research is to determine how and how much added value can be realised through shipping performance...

The XblocPlus is a new type of single layer armour unit for breakwaters. The key difference between earlier single layer armour units is that the unit is not only placed in a regular grid, but also with a regular orientation. The main benefit of this is that it can directly be seen whether the unit is placed correctly. Additionally,...

Lifting an object by capillary forces is mostly done with a single liquid bridge which connects the target object to a probe. In this work the potential of capillary forces for soft-tissue manipulation is investigated; not only a single liquid bridge is used, but multiple bridges as well since capillary forces can be enhanced by contact...

Ever since the attacks on the World Trade Center, airport security has been a topic of interest. The United States was caught by surprise and the attacks triggered a renewed interest in aviation security. It was well recognized that airport security was one step behind on intelligent attackers and this created the need to developed better risk...

The online grocery retail industry is rapidly growing and has to improve order picking activities which is one of the most costly and labor-intensive activities of their supply chain. Gamification has been promised to increase the motivation and productivity of order pickers, but empirical findings in real world work environments are still...

This paper researches passive design strategies that are applicable within the design of a public building for formal and informal events in the dunes of Texel, the Netherlands. Through research of local climatic conditions and the natural dune habitat, an understanding of the site and context was acquired. The natural context presents a...

Existing mathematical models for aerobic granular sludge have focused solely on lab-scale reactors. In this study, an effort was made to adapt these models to simulate the processes of full-scale installations. The model is the first aerobic granular sludge model to use transient radial diffusion and multiple granule fractions. Aerobic and...

In order to accurately predict passing vessel interaction forces, different simulation tools have been developed over the years. Many of these are based on a double body flow approach. MARIN (a hydrodynamic research institute located in the Netherlands) developed a simulation tool called the FlowInteraction (FI) module, which is part of the...

A FEM-based tool was developed for optimization of the geometry of an adhesive joint for implementation in a composite micro truss structure. A genetic algorithm was employed to optimize the adhesive fillet and adherend local end geometry towards a uniform state of strain in the adhesive layer. It was found that the peak maximum principal strain...

Modern passenger vehicles are equipped with an increasing number of actuators that may be used to actively control the lateral and longitudinal dynamics of the vehicle. During limit-handling situations, proper coordination of all the available actuators by the vehicle stability control (VSC) can lead to improved overall control authority, which...

With the increasing interest for renewable energy resources in the last couple of decades, the possible benefits of flow control is brought under more and more attention. Boundary layer suction (or blowing) is one type of control that has proven its applicability in various fields. Being able to predict these effects on the boundary layer and...
