Water Treatment Plants (WTPs) play a key role in assuring water availability to citizens and businesses. Long term availability of these plants is the interest of the asset manager of a WTP and can be influenced by maintenance strategies and modifications of the system. A WTP is characterized by a complex configuration and repairable,...

Many cities in the Netherlands have poor areas that have to deal with a lot of social problems. One of the approaches that policymakers use to improve these areas is the so- called gentrification approach. In this approach policy makers renovate and rebuild parts of the neighborhoods in order to attract more ‘better educated’ citizens to these...

Neoclassical economics dictates the decision-making process of economic agents as the mathematical problem of maximizing utility over a prescribed planning horizon. The mathematical similarities with optimal control theory lead to a new interpretation of economic agents as optimal controllers. Pontryagin's maximum principle generates the...

The dispenser project focused on developing an external vision for a dispenser range for the future washroom in office buildings, retirement homes, and hotels. The project resulted in a foldable dispenser that reduces sustainable impact by decreasing its volume during transport. Another part was wrapping the dispenser to let end customers be...

This master thesis discusses the design of a 3D printed integrated miniature valve to control the air and flow rate in pneumatic soft robotics. The valve is able to control multiple bellows from inside the body of the soft robotic by only using one tube of air supply. The valves are actuated by Shape Memory Alloy actuator wires, named Flexinol....

Microfluidics has changed the way we think about laboratory experimental design. With the use of lab-on-chip devices, we are capable of carrying out experiments that include several functions on a single chip. Despite a lot of progress in the miniaturization of these devices, the peripheral systems which control the microfluidic functionalities...

Origami has become a source of inspiration in engineering for structural design and the creation of mechanical metamaterials. In the often used analytic geometric and energy methods, it is difficult to incorporate deformation of the faces in non-rigid origami. However, deformation of the faces can play a significant role in their mechanical...

A new type of polymeric artificial muscle was recently discovered. This muscle is based on twisted and coiled polymer fiber and is actuated thermally. It has interesting properties, such as low costs and high work densities. Based on fabrication methods, two variations can be considered. The autocoiled variation has a larger load capacity and...

A new method for capturing solar energy is proposed for a Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant with supercritical CO2 (s-CO2) as a working fluid. The idea is to disperse a low volume fraction of nanoparticles in s-CO2, that functions as a heat transfer fluid in a volumetric solar receiver and as a working fluid in a power cycle. The advantage of...

Athletics is the sport that arguably requires the highest number of sundry, dedicated products in the world - a complete competition requires at least 55 different pieces of equipment. These products have to uphold the highest standards, sometimes literally; however, every single product has its shortcomings that reflect back on the quality,...

To remove rocks from objects at the seabed, a mass flow jet could be the solution. The knowledge on the jet production is very scarse for larger particles (larger than 1.5mm). This knowledge starts with a good model for the erosion velocity of grains. Nowadays, only models are validated up to a mean particle diameter of 1.5mm. To give a better...

In 2005 Shell introduced the first monopile satellite platform with the aim to reduce the capital expenditure required for offshore wells. Currently there are 6 of these platforms installed in the Southern North Sea managed by Shell. The main functions of these platforms are to house the wellheads and divert produced hydrocarbons into a subsea...
