In future decades, coasts will be exposed to increasing risks because of climate change and sea level rise, which poses an increased threat of coastal inundation, erosion and ecosystem loss. The natural variability of coasts can make it difficult to identify these impacts. Most beaches worldwide show evidence of recent erosion. Sea level rise is...

A more inclusive perspective on heritage management regarding sustainable development becomes an important aspect in understanding and reflecting on heritage buildings or sites. The cultural significance they convey, such as attributes and values attached to them, are not only represented by physical assets, but are also reflected in people’s...

Adaptive Deep Brain Stimulation (aDBS) offers the potential for personalized stimulation strategies for patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD). The closed loop characteristic of this system requires the incorporation of PD relevant biomarkers that determine the patient's need. In order to obtain high quality LFP (Local Field Potential) input...

Due to the dynamic and complex nature of the construction industry, it is evident that the integration of processes and groups is more challenging to attain in comparison to other industries (Demirkesen & Ozorhon,2017). Therefore, there is a call for better integration of project participants and processes in construction projects (Franz et...

The growing demand for cardiovascular treatments and the need to control the ever rising health care expenditures require efficient use of expensive resources, such as cardiac catheterization laboratories (cath labs). These in cardiac catheterization specialized operating rooms are labor and capital-intensive. Therefore, a high utilization is...

Rapid intake of intermittent generation units, more decentralised production and electrification of demand impose serious challenges on transmission- and distribution electricity grids. Part of this challenge is an increasing amount of congestion on the grids. The Dutch redispatch market for congestion management needs to be adapted to include...

The Europa Lander is a mission by NASA to land scientific instruments on the Jovian Moon by 2030. The current design of the landing system envisions fixed landing legs with the lander being lowered down at very low velocities (≈ 0.1 m/s) by use of a Skycrane. This latter system not only adds mass, but also requires complicated moving parts and a...

Maintenance is a necessary measure to keep the asset, in this case a road network, in good condition. Spending too much on maintenance is clearly not efficient, while not spending enough may cause the condition to drop below a desired value; moreover, it will almost always cost more to correct the emerging damages afterwards. <br/>In this report...

This work provides a water balance-based approach to improve understanding of drought trends by calculating root storage deficits in the United States. To do this, data is ultimately compiled from 1125 watersheds for the years 2001 to 2016. The root storage deficit is then determined using iteratively optimized transpiration values minus the...

The number of space objects has largely increased in the recent years, becoming a considerable threat to the present and future of satellite operations and human spaceflight. This introduces a need to accurately compute the risk of collision between satellites and space debris. Current methodologies are limited by the type of encounter and the...

The dark flight of the meteorite in the atmosphere complicates the estimation of the impact point on the Earth’s surface. The irregular shape of the meteorite affects the aerodynamic forces during the dark flight, which can influence the trajectory of the meteorite. This further complicates the meteorite recovery. Limited knowledge of the...

To cater to the increasing demand in short-range passenger air transport and the research in electric and hybrid aircraft, there is a renewed interest in the research of propellers. Propellers are known to have high aerodynamic efficiency, which translates to lower fuel burn in comparison to other jet engines, making it an attractive option for...

Structures built in lakes and rivers or at sea are under huge forces induced by ice. These cause friction at the ice-structure interface that may pose a threat to the structural integrity of the construction. For the detailed design and realisation of structures in such regions an understanding is required of this friction process. The friction...

Targeted Alpha Therapy (TAT) is an interesting technique in tumour treatments, especially in the treatment of local tumours or the treatments of solid tumours while minimizing unwanted radiation to surrounding tissue. The use of Ac-225 in TAT is especially interesting as in the decay of Ac-225 four alpha particles are emitted. The recoil effect...

Supersonic panel flutter is a self-excited vibration, where energy is transferred into thin flexible panels, such as skin panels in supersonic vehicles, from the (supersonic) flow around them, which can lead to their rapid fatigue failure. Relevant examples of this include the failure of skin panels in the X-15 vehicle, or violent oscillations...

Domestic kitchens are the heart of modern households, a space that embraces social gatherings and most importantly, where pleasures associated with interacting with food arise while cooking and eating. Nevertheless, the way technology is being introduced in this context moves away from this ritual aspect of kitchens as it focuses on a rather...

Interplanetary CubeSat missions enable low-cost exploration missions, in which the design of a primary propulsion system becomes crucial. Emphasis is put on an autonomous Mars mission starting from a parking orbit around Earth: chemical propulsion systems are characterized by high thrust levels and allow fast Earth escape manoeuvres. In recent...

Realistic vehicle routing problems have been highly relevant for years in a wide variety of domains. One such domain is food delivery, where well-crafted routes can reduce costs and contribute to customer satisfaction. This thesis formulates a problem variant for the restaurant meal delivery problem in order to examine the reoptimization of meal...

The continued development of improved algorithms and architecture for numerical simulations is at the core of increased computational performance and, therefore, the ability to perform more complex and precise numerical simulations in less time in areas such as Computational Fluid Dynamics. Employing faster algorithms on more efficient...

The incumbent dominant design for hydrogen production used in refineries in the Netherlands is producing grey hydrogen using steam methane reforming with CO2 as byproduct. Therefore, the current incumbent hydrogen production technology used in refineries in the Netherlands is unsustainable. However, it is still unclear which hydrogen production...
