Remotely controlled subsea vehicles are frequently used for oil and gas applications. A potential future application requiring remote controlled vehicles is deep-sea mining. At the envisioned water depths beyond 1500m, rare minerals are accessible without deep excavation. However, the extreme hyperbaric conditions (i.e. high pressure), limited...

Quantum communication is a prime space technology application and offers near-term possibilities for long-distance quantum key distribution (QKD) and experimental tests of quantum entanglement. However, there exists considerable developmental risks and subsequent costs and time required to raise the technological readiness level of...

Fluvial systems in which peat formation occurs are typified by autogenic processes such as river meandering, crevasse splaying and channel avulsion. Nevertheless, autogenic processes cannot satisfactorily explain the repetitive nature and lateral continuity of many coal seams (compacted peats). The fluvial lower Palaeocene Tullock Member of...

We provide a proof of the technical feasibility of LOUPE, the first integral-field snapshot spectropolarimeter, designed to monitor the reflected flux and polarization spectrum of Earth. These are to be used as benchmark data for the retrieval of biomarkers and atmospheric and surface characteristics from future direct observations of...

This paper presents the results of a systematic validation of numerical simulation of reflection and transmission of rubble-mound breakwater structures. The aim of the study is to provide a body of validation measurements for increasingly complex situations, starting simple and building up the comlexity in terms of breawater geometry, wave...

Cloud adoption in the public sector is taking off slowly, which is perceived as a problem. Models of factors influencing cloud adoption are derived for better understanding using literature and results obtained via desk research and surveys by the Cloud for Europe project. We conclude that several factors require further research, such as the...

This paper presents current developments of the attitude determination algorithm for Del¦-n3Xt, TU Delft next nanosatellite. Several novel quaternion filters using Sun vector and Earth magnetic field measurements and rate gyro outputs are presented. The quaternion measurement matrix associated with each line-of-sight measurement is shown to be...

The paper deals with the classical ice engineering challenge of ice-induced vibrations (IIV) of offshore platforms. There is still a general industry concern with aspects of IIV and the load amplification that can arise in some situations resulting from ice interaction with a structure. It was thought important to re-visit current design...

Mass-spring and liquid dampers enable structural vibration control to attenuate single, coupled lateral and torsional vibrations in diverse structures. Out of these, the passively tuned liquid damper (TLD) class is wanted due to its broad applicability, extreme reliability, robustness, long life time and ease of manufacturability. In this PhD...

Rijn-Schelde Delta: gedeelde langetermijnvisie noodzakelijk voor goed afgestemde investeringsbeslissingen Welke economische perspectieven zijn er binnen de Rijn-Schelde Delta? Is de A4 te beschouwen als een economische ontwikkelingszone voor de Delta of alleen als transportas? Hoe om te gaan met veiligheid en met zoet- en zoutwater in de Delta?...

This research is focused on improving the mechatronic design and control strategies of Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) in order to increase the imaging speed of these instruments, while maintaining the resolution and accuracy of AFM. Different techniques are developed which have led to a faster lateral scanning speed, higher bandwidth control of...

In atomic force microscopy (AFM) high-performance and high precision control of the scanning-system is crucial. At high imaging speeds the dynamic behaviour of the scanner may cause imaging artefacts limiting the maximum imaging rate. This contribution discusses recent improvements for faster imaging by utilizing modern mechatronic and control...

The performance of opto-electronic devices based on semi-conducting organic molecules, dependence on the molecular order of the semi-conducting molecules. To get high charge transportation through the material a high order of the material is needed. In our research we used liquid crystalline phases to get relative high order over large distances...

This paper presents the development of a runway allocation planning tool that seeks to maximize the permissible number of flight operations into and out of an airport within a given annual noise budget. Although the model that underlies the planning tool is generic in nature, the tool has been customized for application to a specific airport,...

Building on previous works, this paper introduces a novel continuous-time stochastic optimal linear quaternion estimator under the assumptions of rate gyro measurements and of vector observations of the attitude. A quaternion observation model, which observation matrix is rank degenerate, is reduced to a two-dimensional model via a maximum...

Climate change and the related running out of fossil fuel reserves drive the development of renewable energy sources. To contribute to a solution of these problems, we present the results of a BSc student design synthesis exercise project on Space Based Solar Power (SBSP). A SBSP system generates power in space using solar cells concentrator...
