The use of certain buyer strategies in the process of property bidding is being discovered in this paper. An Agent-based model is introduced where financial statistics are based on the Dutch housing market. Three types of agents are used in this model that uses cycles of two weeks. Thee hypotheses about the market are initially formulated. In...

Within this thesis influence of thrust vectoring for VAWTs, controlling the magnitude and direction of the thrust vector with respect to the freestream, is investigated through active pitch actuation. The H-type Darrieus VAWT is modelled in 2D through the actuator cylinder model with the Mod-Lin correction included. The evaluations are performed...

Research in medicine and psychology has demonstrated that placebo treatments can lead to clinically meaningful effects which are created by the context of the treatment. Therapeutic rituals are acknowledged as the core of contextual healing effects. To design for contextual healing in clinical practice, more insight is needed in the key...

In this research a framework is proposed including factors involved for success in multi-mode standardization. This framework was applied to identify the relevant factors in the case of phosphorus recovery in form of struvite from municipal wastewater. The following eleven factors were deemed to be relevant by experts:‘financial strength’, ...

Like many rivers around the world, the Loire river in France has a history of human interventions in order to facilitate navigation and port development. Next to affecting bed levels directly, the heavy modification of the river-estuary has induced significant changes in the hydrodynamic and morphodynamic behaviour of the Loire. As a result, the...

Additive manufacturing (AM) is currently making a transition from mainly being used for prototyping to an alternative for conventional production methods. AM provides more freedom in design geometry combined with the possibility to produce (complex) products in low quantities. As a result, the need arises for printed parts with consistent...

The superyacht industry faces an increasing trend of larger dimensions, more open spaces, larger hull openings and more exotic shapes. This puts more effort on the structural design and especially for superyacht longitudinal stiffness is important, since the luxurious interior and delicate systems installed in a superyachts are not allowed to...

Globally, a growing number of kidnappings executed by pirates occur each year. The current protection consists of mercenaries which are flown in by helicopter to protect merchant ships in threat areas. This is not only expensive, sometimes innocent fishermen are seen for pirates, in some cases with a lethal ending for the fishermen. An...

On final approach, an Approach (APP) Air Traffic Controller (ATCo) is responsible for keeping sufficient separation between aircraft lining up on the ILS. The current industry standard is to separate these aircraft with a minimum distance, called Distance-Based Separation or DBS. European regulation requires all European airports to implement...

The electrification of drive trains in current and next generation vehicles require vibration dampers that possess different dynamic properties than its internal combustion engine counterparts. This makes research in automotive vibration damping a hot topic. Research in this field often contains the practice of Frequency Based Substructuring ...

The Netherlands is often depicted as a battleground, with the Dutch in a constant struggle against the water that surrounds them. This project examines this tradition in the context of the Wadden Sea and the island of Schiermonnikoog, where this battle between the land and the sea is at its most extreme.

This project traces the myth of ...

Climate change is an inevitable fact and governments worldwide have started to recognize this by expanding the contribution of renewable energy sources to our global energy production. Wind energy is currently one of the most attractive solutions for the transition to a more sustainable energy future. Since wind energy is not the only competitor...

Mechanical metamaterials are a new emerging class of materials which achieve properties outside the bounds of conventional materials. A metamaterial consists of a unit cell which is periodically repeated in space. In this study, a new metamaterial unit cell is proposed, derived from a class of space structures known as deployable masts. What...

To evaluate traffic signal controllers, and vehicle-actuated traffic signal controllers in particular, in terms of how they are performing with respect to the road authority’s policies on traffic flow and accessibility, traffic safety, and environmental factors, several methods are developed in practice. However, in scientific literature, little...

Flotsam lines may arise on coastal dikes after a storm surge. These lines are generated when material due to debris accumulation on the foreshore has been transported onto the dike surface by wave run-up. Hydraulic engineers who used flotsam line measurements, interpreted a flotsam line as a line which is marking the highest wave run-up. In the...

Flow unsteadiness caused by impeller rotation, vortex-shedding, secondary flows etc. can lead to the generation of acoustic waves within the turbomachinery cascade. This causes pressure loading on the impeller. When acoustic resonance occurs, i.e. the frequency of acoustic wave excitation matches with the structural natural frequencies of the...

Micro-Doppler patterns of multi-propeller drones measured by radar systems are widely used in the classification of different drones, since the micro-Doppler patterns illustrate the velocity and motion properties of the drones. However, on this topic, there are a few issues the current researches have not tackled yet, and these will be discussed...

Locating people inside buildings is still an unsolved problem. There is a lot
of research going on in this field and many different solutions using different
techniques have been proposed. However, there is no widely accepted indoor
localization solution like how GPS is for outdoor localization due to less accuracy, higher hardware...
