As software systems evolve over time, the quality of its structure and code degrade unless developers regularly maintain it, requiring significant effort. Automated tools to help developers maintain software have been well-studied in the past. <br/>In particular, software remodularisation tools focus on improving the code structure quality with...

Shipping is, and will continue to be, the most important transportation method around the globe. A vital part of the logistic chain, it is also one of the main contributors to the worldwide CO2 emissions. Current propulsion technologies all rely on the same classic diesel driven technology, as diesel is widely available and has a high energy...

In the DST project, a deployable space telescope is designed for the thermal infrared spectrum. For this project, a new Systems Engineering (SE) approach was needed, since the SE was outdated and the project worked in silos. Important goals for the SE approach were that it was easy to use and minimizes the workload by automating as much as...

Recent developments in the field of hybrid-electric propulsion (HEP) have opened the door to a wide range of novel aircraft configurations with improved energy efficiency. These electrically-driven powertrains enable “distributed propulsion” configurations, in which the aerodynamic interaction between the propulsive devices and the airframe is...

A technical standards alliance (TSA) is a collection of firms organized for a common goal: developing, revising, and promoting technical standards. A firm may participate in standardization through one or more TSAs: its TSA network. However, little is known about the influencing factors and their boundary conditions for gaining firm-level...

Dutch coastal policy aims for a safe, economically strong and attractive coast. This is achieved by maintaining the part of the coast that support these functions; the coastal foundation. The coastal foundation is maintained by means of sand nourishments. Up to now, it has been assumed that net transports across the coastal foundation's...

'Help eigenaren van monumenten en woningen binnen beschermd stadsgezicht bij het verduurzamen op een mooie manier.' Klimaatpsycholoog Gerdien de Vries werkt aan de TU Delft en doet al 10 jaar onderzoek naar het gedoe dat mensen ervaren als ze hun woning willen verduurzamen. Ook zichzelf kon ze tot nu toe niet over die drempel tillen, en dus deed...

Airborne wind energy (AWE) systems use tethered flying devices to harvest higher-altitude winds to produce electricity. For the success of the technology, it is crucial to understand how people perceive and respond to it. If concerns about the technology are not taken seriously, it could delay or prevent implementation, resulting in increased...

The goal of this study is to analyze how the aero-propulsive benefits of an over-the-wing distributed-propulsion (OTWDP) system at component level translate into an aero-propulsive benefit at aircraft level, and to determine whether this enhancement is sufficient to lead to a reduction in overall energy consumption. For this, the preliminary...

Optical satellite images of the nearshore water surface offer the possibility to invert water depths and thereby constitute the underlying bathymetry. Depth inversion techniques based on surface wave patterns can handle clear and turbid waters in a variety of global coastal environments. Common depth inversion algorithms require video from shore...

Representatives from 14 countries worldwide worked together on improving their monitoring and ultimately their water management to reach the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 goals by 2030, thereby testing the Information Strategy Model (ISM). This model is developed to support identifying the need for information for water management. In...

Physics inquiry can be interpreted as the construction of a cogent argument in which students apply inquiry knowledge and knowledge of physics to the systematic collection of relevant, valid, and reliable data, creating optimal scientific support for a conclusion that answers the research question. In learning how to devise, conduct and evaluate...

Retrofitting residential buildings can help mitigate the effects of climate change. Cognitive biases are systematic deviations from rationality in decision making and can lead to inaction, delay, and uncertain decisions. Understanding the cognitive biases involved in residential renovation decisions and developing interventions to overcome...

Sandy coasts form the interface between land and sea and their morphologies are highly dynamic. A combination of human and natural forcing results in morphologic changes affecting both nature values and coastal safety. Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) is a technique enabling near-continuous monitoring of the changing morphology of a sandy...

Optical fibers form the backbone of our global data transmission infrastructure. As demands on global data transmission grow the capacity of these systems needs to be increased. The behaviour of light waves through these optical fibers is described by the Manakov Equation (ME), a system of nonlinear partial differential equations.<br/><br/>The...

Over the last years the Netherlands has often had to deal with droughts and water shortages during summer. This problem is caused by long periods without rain but with high evaporation rates and is enhanced by groundwater extraction for drinking water. Due to climate change, these droughts are expected to occur more often and become more severe....

With a growing number of citizens and tourists, the scarce public space, roads, and public transport in Amsterdam are experiencing rising pressure. Instead of utilizing the conventional transportation routes, Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) could transport goods and people via the 165 canals present in Amsterdam. <br/>However, urban canals are...

Mobile soft robots show great potential for exploration of unknown and hard to navigate environments. Sadly, most of these robots are currently being held back by their power sources and control systems. These components, which are usually quite heavy and bulky, need to be integrated before mobile soft robots can cut their tethers and explore...

With the increasing global demand for logistics, supply chains have grown a lot in volume over the last decades. To be able to operate effectively within the capacity constraints of the carriers, proper collaboration and optimization of order allocation is required. Van Berkel Logistics facilitates the transport of containers by trucks from sea...

We live in an online world: we date online, we do business online and we communicate online. To make sure this happens securely, almost all transferred data is encrypted by cryptosystems. This paper focuses on one of these: the knapsack cryptosystem of Merkle and Hellman, which relies on the hardness of solving the knapsack problem (1978). In...
