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...

This research focuses on the effects of the socio-technical boundary conditions on the success of chatbot implementation in organizations. To do so, different actor perspectives on "successful implementation" are explored and 33 boundary conditions are proposed. The findings suggest that satisfying the boundary conditions has a positive effect...

Wind energy plays an essential role in the transition to a sustainable future and wind turbines allow us to utilize it. Wind turbines are often installed in close proximity to make the best use of the given space and to save costs. This also has the disadvantage that the turbines influence each other due to wakes. This is where wind farm control...

Heavy-duty trucks (HDTs) are a significant contributor to global anthropogenic carbon emissions. In contrary to passenger cars, HDTs have to cope with decarbonization complications due to range and weight characteristics. Overhead catenary electric road systems (ERS-OC) can aid in decarbonizing this sector. Here, trucks are equipped with a...

Interface management (IM) is an emerging construction management practice that is mainly concerned with the integration effort of (mega)projects through the management of project interfaces. Even though a plethora of benefits is attributed to IM, a clear overview of how to effectively manage interfaces is non-existent. Without a general...

Standardization is becoming more commonplace in space missions, aiming to increase reliability and drive down costs. Due to the relative similarities in operating environment between Small Solar System Bodies (SSSBs), a highly-adaptable lander may be able to service a majority of SSSBs with minor adaptations. The model-based systems engineering ...

In this thesis report, the potential for high-throughput fabrication of micromechanical metamaterials is studied. Metamaterials are structures typically consisting of repetitive micrometre-sized features that introduce new and extraordinary ‘material’ properties. However, up to now these structures are predominantly fabricated with slow 3D-print...

Laser-assisted automated fiber placement (LAFP) is a promising additive manufacturing technique for the production of large aerospace components. Thermoplastic prepreg tapes will be placed ply-by-ply on top of a mould and in-situ consolidated. This is beneficial for higher production rates. The mechanical performance of thermoplastic composite...
