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....

From 1700 onwards the natural coastal landscape of Mumbai has gone through drastic changes and has become the highly urbanized metropolis we see today. The natural landscape was that of a forest to estuarine topographical gradient. This transformation of the land has had a major impact on the city’s resiliency, impacting water systems, green...

Crater counting is the main method used to determine the age of a planetary surface. This method relies on knowing the cratering rate to estimate the absolute age of a surface. However, two theories currently exist for impact cratering of the moons in the Saturnian system, one suggesting that the majority of the impactors are of heliocentric...

Over the past decade, renewable power generation through wind power has increased significantly. Especially the installation of offshore wind energy is expected to skyrocket to a total of 2000 GW by 2050. The majority of rights to develop and operate offshore wind farms are allocated through tendering procedures.<br/>In tender procedures,...

Sorting systems form an example of event driven systems. These types of systems are referred to as discrete event systems (DES), and they consist of jobs that need to be performed at available resources. In an autonomous sorting system, jobs consist of robots receiving and delivering parcels at the correct locations. With scheduling, optimal...

This project addresses the inequality gap that exists between the city and the countryside in Colombia in terms of education, access to opportunities, and<br/>technology literacy. By using design and entrepreneurship together with the “Más Por TIC” foundation, we developed the program “1,2,3 x TIC”, an entrepreneurship program for rural...

One of the major emitters of CO2 is the aviation industry which keeps growing. A solution to reduce carbon emissions is to focus on Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) such as biofuels or synthetic fuels or to focus on sustainable alternative technologies such as electric-powered or hydrogen-powered aircraft. A literature review is conducted that...

More and more people are living in cities. As these cities grow, the benefits of living in them are increasingly unequally distributed. One factor that can turn the tide of glooming urban inequality is equitable access to opportunities. Designing policies for equitable access requires taking into account several components that impact...

Last-mile delivery in urban areas causes many problems, including air pollution, nuisance, and congestion. There are various delivery methods, which differ in terms of costs, sustainability impacts, and societal impacts. One of these methods is crowdshipping. According to literature, crowdshipping is a promising solution to various last-mile...

The development of novel materials has been of great interest to the aerospace industry in the pursuit of efficiency and cost reduction. Fibre-steered variable stiffness laminates have promising characteristics due to the ability to better tailor designs for expected loading, as the fibre orientation can be varied within a layer. This thesis was...

Rijkswaterstaat has introduced the two-stage model in the Dutch construction industry in order to reduce risks in large and complex projects (Rijkswaterstaat, 2020a). However, it is also possible that the two-stage model can influence the sustainability of infrastructure projects since the risks are reduced and a different way of collaboration...

<br/>The thesis proposes an education system that have the potential to safeguard freedom of education. Freedom of education is found to be essential for human flourishing after discussing Aristotle's Eudaimonia and different definitions of freedom. The thesis proposes that the social spheres (cultural, economic, and political) need to have an...

The Akosombo dam in Ghana's Lower Volta River Basin provides essential economic benefits through hydropower generation, flood protection, and irrigation opportunities. However, since its construction was completed in 1965, the livelihood of the riverine communities drastically changed. The seasonal peak and low flows in the river, which provided...

Enhanced textile reuse is required due to the textile industry's increasing environmental pressure. In order to reach this, behavioural change is necessary. However, it is currently unknown which changes in consumer values that determine textile reuse consumption are<br/>most effective. In addition, rebound effects appear: reuse lowers the...

Insects have — over millions of years of evolution — perfected many of the systems that roboticists aim to achieve; they can swiftly and robustly navigate through different environments under various conditions while at the same time being highly energy efficient. To reach this level of performance and efficiency one might want to look at and take...

Developing optimal controllers for aggressive high speed quadcopter flight remains a major challenge in the field of robotics. Recent work has shown that neural networks trained with supervised learning are a good candidate for real-time optimal quadcopter control. In these methods, the networks (termed G\&amp;CNets) are trained using optimal...

The performance of linear control is limited by the waterbed effect, while the performance demands of industry are continuously increasing. Using non-linear control in the future is therefore unavoidable. Being non-linear, reset control is able to achieve better performance than linear control. However, the lack of robustness to measurement...
