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...

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...

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...

This thesis studies how serious game developers can develop robust business models with regard to future uncertainties that these developers must be able to deal with. Twelve in-depth interviews were held with managers, owners, and entrepreneurs of serious game developers in the Netherlands to identify and describe in detail the future...

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...

Global and local aviation traffic is growing while economic and performance pressures on the industry are increasing. As a consequence, airlines try to maximise their fleet utilization. Airline operators and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) providers therefore require as much insight as possible in factors affecting component reliability...

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...

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...

What is the most advantageous magnetic attitude control torquer for reducing angular rates of a PocketQube? To answer this question several magnetorquer concepts are explored and two concepts are built. In addition, a method to test these magnetorquers is developed. An Air-core magnetorquer system and a magnetorquer embedded in a PCB are...

The relevance of circular economy, in these days where the environmental impact and toll of humans’ activities is undeniable, grows steadily. Circular economy, founded on three basic principles, advocates for all materials to be kept in use for as long as possible. This takes a concrete shape, for example, in the importance of recycling...

Fatigue is often a governing design factor for offshore wind turbines. Since the design of offshore wind turbines includes conservatism, the actual accumulated fatigue damage can be lower than what the turbine is designed for. In this case, the operator can make a decision on life time extension of existing wind turbines. Therefore, it is...

This thesis presents a model that is able to predict fatigue crack growth and damage directionality in non-conventional Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) in CentreCracked Tension (CCT) specimens. Non-conventional FMLs encompass all FMLs other than standardised ones such as GLARE. FMLs can be made non-conventional by using multiple fibre types, any...

To respond to the growing offshore industry Jumbo Maritime has designed a new vessel to expand its offshore fleet: The Stella Synergy. The vessel will be able to install monopiles for the offshore wind and oil and gas industry. The main objective of this thesis is: Making a model that is able to predict the motions of the vessel as well as the...

The Maurikse Wetering is a tributary of the Line river in the centre of the Netherlands. As the catchment is situated between and in close proximity to the larger Nederrijn and Waal rivers, intercatchment groundwater flow (IGF; groundwater flow crossing topographic divides) might have a significant influence on the water balance of the Maurikse...

This work is concerned with the simulation of gas networks using a hybrid modeling approach where different pipes are described withmodels belonging to the isothermal model hierarchy. It makes special emphasis in the coupling of algebraic and transient models and their effects in both steady-state and transient regime. The transient behavior of...

Airline schedules are constantly being updated to deal with disruptions originating from crew absence, upstream delays, mechanical failures and other sources. A robust schedule is capable of dealing with- or absorbing negative effects of such unexpected events. Schedule robustness, accounted for proactively in the scheduling g phase, is...
