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....

In the last thirty years, massive improvements in flight operations and aircraft technology were implemented, reaching a 54% reduction in specific fuel consumption [1]. However, during the same period, the aviation market has tripled the number of flights per year with a consequent and direct increase in the emissions of greenhouse gasses. To...

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...

Abrupt and rapid high-amplitude changes in a dynamical system’s states known as extreme events appear in many processes occurring in nature, such as drastic climate patterns, rogue waves, or avalanches. These events often entail catastrophic effects, therefore their description and prediction is of great importance. Nevertheless, because of...

This work provides a foundation for designing aerodynamic mudflaps used in heavy-duty vehicles, which will help these vehicles become greener. First, a simulated moving ground consisting of a leading edge, roller setup and a novel tangential blowing system was devised as an alternative to the expensive conveyor belts necessary for pertinent...

in this research, I study the Nitrogen Crisis by comparing Twitter content to real-life events, answering the following research question: How does the intensity of emotions and discussed topics on social media relate to the characteristics of real-life demonstrations during a sustainability policy crisis? To characterise online events,...

3D scene reconstruction is a common computer vision task with many applications. The synthesized virtual environments are beneficial for many downstream applications such as 3D modeling, building inspection, virtual reality, etc. As conventional scene reconstruction methods often require expensive data collections and prior information on the...

The provision of good accessibility is the main function of a well-functioning public transport (PT) system, the quality of which affects the ability of people to access basic needs such as employment, education, and healthcare. It is therefore important that PT accessibility is distributed in an equitable, or fair, manner. This thesis evaluates...

Grocery e-commerce has been rapidly increasing in recent years, posing a new challenge for retailers as groceries, unlike other goods, have a limited shelf life. Thus, customers expect their orders to arrive quickly and undamaged. Currently, most processes between a customer placing an order and the delivery are performed manually in a warehouse...

Due to their attractive characteristics, convertible and callable bonds became a more important class of fixed-income products within the financial market. Therefore, the need for fair and accurate pricing of convertible and callable bonds increases. Where the convertible option can be considered as a right for the bondholder, the callable...

Engine maintenance needs to be planned timely and strategically. This can only be done if the health of the engine can be predicted, which requires an accurate engine performance model. Developing such a model is becoming increasingly challenging, due to the reduced number of sensors in modern gas turbines. Besides this, a lot of data is...

Kidney stone disease has become the most common disease of the urinary tract. Flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) is one of the methods to perform diagnosis or treatment for the stones inside the kidney. However, because of the complex structure inside the kidney with multiple calyxes and the limitation of the ureteroscope, surgeons find it difficult...

Nano quadcopters are small, agile, and cheap platforms well suited for deployment in narrow, cluttered environments. Due to their limited payload, nano quadcopters are highly constrained in processing power, rendering conventional vision-based methods for autonomous navigation incompatible. Recent machine learning developments promise high...

Increasing emissions have led to the search for alternate power systems to provide energy for maritime applications. The recent drop in battery prices (over 200 % in the last ten years) has made battery energy storage one of the practical alternatives for fossil fuels to curb emissions and reduce the carbon footprint of the maritime sector. The...

Mimetic formulations, also known as structure-preserving methods, are numerical schemes that preserve fundamental properties of the continuous differential operators at a discrete level. Additionally, they are well-known for satisfying constraints such as conservation of mass or momentum. <br/><br/>In the present work, a Mimetic Spectral Element...

Traditional software testing is a labor-intensive and expensive manual process. To mitigate the high cost of manual test case generation, researchers have developed various techniques for automated test case generation over the last few decades. These techniques make use of static type information to determine which data types should be used in...
