Solar sailing is a flight-proven low-thrust propulsion technology with strong potential for innovative scientific missions. The heliogyro is promising sailcraft design that utilizes a set of long slender blades which are deployed and flattened by spin-induced tension and whose orientations can be individually controlled. The main advantages of...

Maintenance of complex machines or assemblies is an essential part of machine-building companies. Besides building and designing machines, they are responsible for replacing components and restoring the machines to maintain good operational conditions. An optimal maintenance plan ensures that customers spend less on maintenance and remain...

Control of a helicopter with a deployed dipping sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) is no trivial task due to the complex dynamics of the suspension cable. The cable can change shape, which influences the effect of water, wind and the motion of the helicopter itself. To control such a system, a control method is needed that can cope with these...

To improve the safety of commercial air transport, pilots are required to train on simulators to recognize the characteristics of an impeding stall and subsequently correctly recover from it. To prevent negative training, it is important that the accuracy of the used simulation models is high. A manner to model the nonlinear, unsteady...

Decentralised drone swarms need real time collision avoidance, thus requiring efficient, real time relative localisation. This paper explores different data inputs for vision based relative localisation. It introduces a novel dataset generated in <i>Blender</i>, providing ground truth optic flow and depth. Comparisons to <i>MPI Sintel</i>, an...

Mangrove forests are important (sub)tropical intertidal ecosystems providing coastal protection and other ecosystem services like carbon storage and biodiversity. In view of the loss of these forests many rehabilitation projects have started, but unfortunately these efforts often fail. A main cause for coastal erosion is a disrupted (fine)...

From the desire to reduce the impact of traveling on the environment and the increase in fuel prices over the past years, the propeller has regained interest as a propulsion mechanism in the aviation industry. Two main reasons can be found in their high propulsive efficiency and ability to combine with electric motors. The scaling of the motors...

Quantum networks offer more capabilities than classical networks. For example, quantum networks can solve certain problems faster than classical networks and they can even solve problems which cannot be solved with classical networks. One well-known quantum network application is blind quantum computing (BQC). In a BQC application a client node...

This thesis serves as an attempt to establish the initial empirical linkage between environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and startup valuation by venture capitalists. While substantial academic work has addressed the ESG topic and how firms’ ESG characteristics impact their financial performance and valuations, relatively little...

Distal cement plug removal in total hip arthroplasty revision is a time-consuming and technically challenging procedure. There is a risk of perforating the femur while drilling in the cement plug. This risk increases when the orientation of the prosthesis tip is excentric. The aim of this study was to design a reusable drill guide that...

New studies state that climate change is projected to harm snow reliability in ski resorts, resulting in shorter ski seasons, increased snowmaking demand and low-lying ski areas may cease to exist. Open Wear is a sustainable outerwear brand that uses sustainable materials and ethical production to produce clothing from 100% recycled plastic. The...

Aerial platforms designed for water jet placement are gaining interest in the areas of fire-fighting, washing, and irrigation. A novel, lightweight, and simplistic design is proposed that reduces the number of actuators and limits ineffective water discharge. External camera feedback was used for position control as a first step towards...

Highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide, known as high-test peroxide (HTP), is widely regarded as a greener and safer alternative to traditional hypergolic fuels. A recent development demonstrated the<br/>potential to manufacture HTP in-orbit, bypassing prolonged storage challenges associated with the substance. This sparked interest in...

This thesis report provides an analysis of the structural behavior of façades made of CLT panels with openings. These openings will have a significant influence on the transfer of forces in the panels, as well as the stiffness of the façade. The connections required to transfer the forces between the panels are designed. Deformations of the...

Tactile Internet opens many new possibilities as it solves one of the critical problems in the modern-day Internet, namely latency. Remote operations are possible that are deemed too dangerous with current technologies. Interacting directly with the remote environment without being physically present will be a life-changing experience. Before...

Besides global warming, climate change is expected to result in (among others) an increased number of extreme precipitation events and a rising sea level. In the future, this can be the cause for an increased number of high river discharge events in combination with high water levels on the North Sea, which goes hand in hand with an increased...

The miniaturization of satellites throughout the decades is mostly contributed by the advancement in electronics and technology. Volume and mass of a satellite are factors of the launch costs. The Deployable Space Telescope (DST) program<br/>aims to reduce the stowed volume of the telescope and subsequently reduce the costs.<br/>Telescopes have...

In order to design safe and effective interactions between autonomous vehicles (AVs) and human road users, it is essential to understand the mechanisms underlying human-human merging behavior. Driving simulator experiments can be used to study these mechanisms, but previous research has primarily focused on the behavior of individual drivers...
