There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

From 1700 onwards the natural coastal landscape of Mumbai has gone through drastic changes and has become the highly urbanized metropolis we see today. The natural landscape was that of a forest to estuarine topographical gradient. This transformation of the land has had a major impact on the city’s resiliency, impacting water systems, green...

The development of novel materials has been of great interest to the aerospace industry in the pursuit of efficiency and cost reduction. Fibre-steered variable stiffness laminates have promising characteristics due to the ability to better tailor designs for expected loading, as the fibre orientation can be varied within a layer. This thesis was...

Motivation: Many tumors show deficiencies in DNA damage repair. These deficiencies can play a role in the disease, but also expose vulnerabilities with therapeutic potential. Targeted treatments exploit specific repair deficiencies, for instance based on synthetic lethality. To decide which patients could benefit from such therapies requires the...

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...

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 ...

Due to the increasing amount of data processed within organizations, these organizations are increasingly experiencing shortcomings in their current monolithic data architectures and their capacity to facilitate these data operations. The particular limitations cause an increasing demand for a data architecture design that can address these...

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...

In order to enable the safe and efficient integration of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles into very low level airspace, modern day research focuses on the development of new traffic services and procedures. One of these is the geovectoring protocol, which aims to reduce traffic complexity by setting limits on the allowed ground speed, course, and...

The aviation industry continues to contribute to anthropogenic climate change. Recent studies have shown that the total radiative forcing from aviation is around three times higher than that from CO<sub>2</sub> alone. To account for the full effect of aviation, climate metrics are needed, which equate the environmental impact of various...

Energy demand for heating and cooling makes up 73\% of total energy use of buildings [2]. This figure is expected to increase over the coming decades, as demand for cooling energy may rise in the Netherlands due to climate change. The heating and cooling of buildings are at relatively low temperature compared to the industry and thus allowing...

In this thesis a grey-box model is developed to predict the power increase over time due to marine biofouling. Biofouling is known as the undesired adverse effect of living organisms growing on submerged surfaces. Fouling creates roughness on the hull and propeller and thus additional frictional resistance and loss of propeller efficiency, also...

After the breakup of the Stratos III vehicle, inertial roll coupling was pinpointed to be the root cause. In order to battle the problem a propulsive roll control system was suggested to keep the roll rate under acceptable bounds. A restartable hybrid rocket engine using nitrous oxide and ABS plastic was proposed. 27 tests have been performed of...

To facilitate an increase in air traffic volume and to allow for more flexibility in the flight paths of aircraft, an abundance of decentralized conflict resolution (CR) algorithms have been developed. The efficiency of such algorithms often deteriorates when employed in high traffic densities. Several methods have tried to prioritize certain...
