Prostate cancer is a disease with very high prevalence and mortality in the western world. An early accurate diagnosis can increase treatment efficiency. Current diagnosing techniques consist in systematic biopsy sampling. Radiomics can infer tumor's phenotypic differentiations from medical images, providing an accurate guide for biopsy sampling...

Erosion is a phenomenon present in several industrial processes. In dredging, the jetting of sand in drag heads erodes the sand bed. In construction of offshore infrastructure such as wind turbines, oil and gas production units, marine pipelines, erosion of material near the foundations can put the stability of structures at stake. Furthermore,...

In this project the theme of the studio "Reclaiming Rome" was interpreted with different research and design methods, which resulted in an elaborate design of not only architecture but the environment. One of the leitmotifs of the project was taking inspiration from historical evidence of Rome, implementing the arches of ancient Roman viaducts...

Crystallization is one of the oldest known separation techniques in chemical engineering. It has found widespread applications in the fine chemicals, agrochemicals, food and pharmaceutical industries. However, crystallization is a complicated process and is not easy to control. In conventional crystallization, many of the phenomena’s like...

Traditional quay wall structures are not very flexible, because they are often hard to adapt and to reuse. However, changes in the container shipping market, international conflicts and new generations of vessels are some examples that could drive the desire the relocate or adapt quay wall structures. The objective of this thesis is to design a...

Goal. The three-dimensional vestibulo-ocular reflex (3-D VOR) is responsible for the maintenance of stable vision through generating compensatory eye movements in response to head movements. The main functional components of the 3-D VOR are the semicircular canals. The anatomy of the three canals is complicated, requiring the definition of...

This project envisioned three futures of San Francisco dominated by three notions of nature in the upcoming Data-ism age. Nature has always been the authority to justify landscape architecture design, and its definition changes all the time. When we are dealing with long-term issues, like climate change, our actions should be justified by the...

Energy transfer between guides and bumpers duet to impulse loads

During reverse installation for executing platform decommissioning and removal projects, heavy modules such as the topside of an offshore platform are cut off their substructures and lifted back on the deck of crane vessels or onto cargo barges. To assure that the modules...

In the process of urbanization, cities are becoming ever larger and denser, a process accompanied by a dramatic decrease in water permeable surface area. In addition to this, due to climate change, several areas are experiencing extended periods of heavy rainfall and serious droughts, resulting in an increasing water problem in many cities.

Fast depleting fossil fuels and growing awareness for environmental protection have led us to the urgency of a long-term energy planning where reduction of emissions, integration of renewable supply, and energy efficiency improvement represent the main targets of a ‘smarter’ employment of primary resources. Research is needed nowadays to drive a...

As the landscape of the south western river delta in the Netherlands is increasingly urbanised, the processes of urbanisation and the dynamics of nature can no longer go in their separate ways. Measures for water safety, that over the course of recent history has been diverting, regulating, and controlling natural dynamics away from the urban...

Having an absorber layer thickness below 1 micrometre for a regular copper indium gallium di-selenide (CIGS) solar cell reduces the pathways for electron collection which lead to reduced recombination in the bulk absorber layer. Additionally, it reduces material costs and production time. Yet, having such a thin absorber reduces the cell...

Durability of buildings, the capacity to provide functional usable space for a certain time, as a concept of sustainable architecture forms the starting point and motivation for this project. As part of this main approach, the future function strategy should be introduced. This strategy contains an existing building which will be redesigned in a...
