There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

Many people living in low-middle-income countries (LMICs) are affected by injuries that develop into chronic wounds and, without adequate treatment, may lead to disabilities or even cause death. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) is currently a highly suitable manner to treat complex and chronic wounds. NPWT uses controlled negative pressure...

Prilling is the industrial process in which thin jets of a molten substance break up into drops and the subsequent solidification of the droplets into solids due to cooling when they fall down in the prilling tower. Prilling is widely used for efficient production of a variety of materials such as, e.g., fertilizer grains, laundry detergent, and...

To reduce the environmental impact of aircraft, technological innovations are required. The Flying-V could be one of these technical innovations, as research shows it could be up to 20 % more efficient than regular aircraft of the same size. The Flying-V however has low lateral control authority, and pitch<br/>break-up could occur for high...

Over the past decades Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has become a standard in abdominal surgery. Due to limited dexterity and bad ergonomics the field of MIS is shifting towards Robot-Assisted MIS (RAMIS). Simultaneously, the field is using increasingly small and steerable instruments to reduce invasiveness. Surgeon now work with fragile...

During its thirteen-year long mission in the Saturnian system, the Cassini spacecraft routinely used Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, for performing its gravity assists. The problem of determining the gravity field of Titan by performing a precise fit of Cassini’s orbit to the available Doppler tracking data was reviewed in this study. The...

Current large-scale additive manufacturing extruders use short reinforcing fibre-filled thermoplastic pellets, which marginally improve the mechanical performance but are too short to exploit the strength of the fibres fully. Long fibre pellets have much higher potential strength, and the development of higher strength materials could create...

Novel designs like the Flying-V, Prandtl-Plane and Blended Wing-Body show promise towards sustainable aviation. In the preliminary design phase, Sub-scale Flight Test (SFT) is a reliable method to get insight into the flight behavior of these designs. The effectiveness and value provided by SFT depends on the similitude between the SFT model and...

Background: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a motor neuron disease that is characterized by the degeneration of upper and lower motor neuron (UMN, LMN). A defining feature of ALS is its heterogeneous presentation, with varying sites of disease onset and progression rate. Diagnosing ALS requires the observation of both UMN and LMN...

CubeSats have risen in popularity since its first launch in the year 2003. The low mass, lower launch cost, lower development cost, possibility for piggyback with larger satellites and lower development time involved compared to larger satellites have opened them to be commercialised by private companies. In contrast to being used for...

New offshore wind farms consisting of monopile-founded Offshore Wind Turbines (OWTs) are to be built in earthquake-prone areas. To design the monopile foundation and to accurately define the dynamic response of an OWT, the soil-monopile-superstructure interaction should be modelled properly. Due to the fact that the Three-Dimensional (3D) Finite...
