This research considers Amels LE and SX super yachts. Bare hull, appended hull, and actuator disk simulations were performed using CFD, and compared to sea trial results. The results of the CFD are unique because they were generated after the sea trials were conducted, resulting in the ship speed in CFD and sea trial being similar. The results...

Before the global SARS-CoV-2 outbreak worldwide air traffic saw yearly increases. New airports were being build or existing airports were being expanded or redeveloped. Strategic airport planning provides structure to these large scale projects while development phasing manages the complex system of airport development and phasing. The purpose...

Collaboration between the Global South and Global North is inevitable. It can work. It can be emphatic, effective, and more equal. However, there is a deeply embedded history of colonialism involving power asymmetries that give rise to the dismissal of value systems, which pervert this type of collaboration from being truly realised. Hence,...

Hydrogen is widely considered an essential energy carrier that has the potential to accelerate the energy transition. The Netherlands does not have the resources to fulfil the expected hydrogen demand by domestically produced hydrogen. By realising hydrogen import terminals, the Port of Rotterdam can maintain its dominating...

The scheduling algorithm of the printer is an important factor that affects printing efficiency. For current printers, paper scheduling often follows the first-in-first-out principle, so it is often not optimal. The printer system is a type of semi-cyclic discrete-event system with synchronization but no concurrency. The system contains a set of...

Acidizing is a widely used technique for intensification of geothermal wells. At certain conditions, acid injection results in a formation of highly conductive channels, e.g. wormholes. The associated rock matrix dissolution is highly nonlinear and may influence the fluid flow as well as rock properties. Wormhole patterns and breakthrough time...

In this thesis the potential of demand response among households in The Netherlands is studied. The methodology is based on the conceptual design of an Agent-Based Model for the adoption of domestic demand response by households. From this model the subsequent flexibility in the electricity system will be brought forward.<br/><br/>A review of...

The rapid development of the wind industry over the past few years has pushed turbine manufacturers to meet the growing energy demands by designing and producing large scale wind turbines.This also means development of larger monopile foundations for the foundation designers in the case of offshore wind turbines.\ Generally, the turbine tower...

Evaluation of aircraft performance for design, certification, and maintenance purposes requires aerodynamic knowledge for the entire flight envelope of an aircraft. Simplified models that relate geometric properties and flight conditions of an aircraft to its aerodynamic properties are simply not sufficient anymore, as non-linear aerodynamic...

The Sandwindmill system could decarbonize the Dutch coastal protection whilst harmonizing with the building with nature approach. The system consists of a pipeline connecting an offshore borrow location to a nearshore area, where the mined sediment is discharged. The equipment is powered by wind turbines. As long as the wind blows sufficiently,...

For patients with a hand disability, hand exoskeletons can improve their ability to perform activities of daily living.<br/>Its complicating that on the hand little space is available to build an exoskeleton. So, moment arms of actuators must be small. This complicates generating adequate moments. Strong actuators may be a solution, but they add...

A port is a maritime facility that acts as a logistic hub where land and sea transport is exchanged. In 2020 ports handled approximately 80% of all worldwide trade. This huge reliance on ports means that operability is crucial, the extent to which a port is available to handle cargo. Therefore, port operators have to ensure safe conditions in...

Introduction: This research aims to develop a gripper that is capable of handling deformable and delicate objects at high acceleration (≥10 G) using a contact-reactive grasping approach while moving. Commercial grippers are already suitable for handling various food products at high speed and acceleration when combined with a parallel...

As the need for abundant and reliable renewable energy increases, there is a growing interest in floating wind turbines, which would allow to harness the wind resource in areas where bottom-founded wind turbines cannot be used. However, the movements of the platform are expected to cause unsteady aerodynamics effects, including different wake...

Due to the ever increasing demand of energy and the urgency in which this has to be produced using renewable energy resources the request for offshore wind farms is larger than ever. As a result of the competitive nature of the energy sector it is important to keep the cost of energy low in order to keep an edge over the competition. Therefore,...

The cloud is widely adopted as a flexible and on-demand computing infrastructure. In recent years, a new and promising cloud paradigm emerged: serverless computing. Serverless computing promises a pay-as-you-go model and offers features such as autoscaling and high availability. Nevertheless, developing scalable cloud applications remains a...

The past 70 years has shown an incredible growth in air transport. The increase in flights has resulted in an increased strain on the environment. Climate change is a fact. Designers have been working on improving the aircraft, and in particular, the engine efficiency. By improving the internal components through better materials, new design...

Rain and lightning associated with thunderstorms can cause damage to crops, cars, houses and other properties. As the climate is warming, it is expected that the frequency of lightning will increase, but it is highly uncertain to what degree. For the KNMI'23 climate scenarios, it becomes essential to make reliable statements on future...

It has been shown that glacially induced decompression rates under Vatnajökull cause an increase in mantle melt and enhancement in volcanic activity. Eruptions under ice can form tuyas, that can be used to constrain past ice sheet thickness. Several mountains in the Martian South Polar Region qualify as tuyas, but their exact origin is still...
