Collaboration between the Global South and Global North is inevitable. It can work. It can be emphatic, effective, and more equal. However, there is a deeply embedded history of colonialism involving power asymmetries that give rise to the dismissal of value systems, which pervert this type of collaboration from being truly realised. Hence,...

Acidizing is a widely used technique for intensification of geothermal wells. At certain conditions, acid injection results in a formation of highly conductive channels, e.g. wormholes. The associated rock matrix dissolution is highly nonlinear and may influence the fluid flow as well as rock properties. Wormhole patterns and breakthrough time...

The energy transition is driving extensive changes to global energy systems, including the electrification of heating and mobility, increased renewable electricity generation, and a shift towards sustainable gases like green hydrogen. These changes will need to be accompanied by major investments in energy infrastructure, especially considering...

Low downlink data rates limit the scientific and commercial return from small satellites. Now with constellations of small satellites becoming popular, the amount of data generated in low Earth orbit will be greater than ever. A novel data downlink architecture for small satellites is investigated that uses non-geostationary orbit (mega-...

The Mid-infrared ELT Imager and Spectrograph (METIS), which will be one of the first-light instruments on the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), will be equipped with an Adaptive Optics (AO) system that will use a natural guide star as reference for the correction of the wavefront errors, introduced by the atmospheric turbulence. Even though this...

The number of people working night shifts has been steadily increasing over the past 20 years. Although shift workers have known this for a long time already from first-hand experience, the Dutch national institute for public health and the environment has recently published advice to minimize night (shift) work, as it is detrimental to the...

Straight fiber variable stiffness laminates use multiple overlapping patches to tailor the fiber orientations in particular regions of the laminate. A novel, automated framework for the design of manufacturable laminate has been developed using different stages. In the first and second stage an optimal stiffness distribution is determined using...

A new semi-analytical model is developed to predict the dynamic response of slender gates in combination with an overhang, which are subjected to standing waves. Still little is known for these types of gates for this specific forcing type. The semi-analytical model is still in its development phase and must be validated on its performance. This...

The Lunar Zebro is a small six-legged robot. It has the potential to be used in a swarm carrying out objectives like exploring planetary surfaces. A new step towards autonomous navigation is made with the newly developed Obstacle Processing ALgorithm (OPAL) using primarily open-source libraries. This study showed that the initial iteration of...

Pick and place systems that operate in a warehouse setting have been studied a lot recently due to the high economic value for e-commerce companies. In this thesis, the focus is on the perception pipeline that performs object recognition given a certain input data stream (typically RGB-D images). Impressive results regarding object recognition...

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. In CAD, the coronary arteries, that supply the myocardium with oxygen, are narrowed or even blocked by a process called atherosclerosis. Invasive coronary angiography (ICA) is the gold standard for the diagnosis of CAD, as well as for intraprocedural...

Biochemical reactions play a crucial role and tell us many about the behavior of the biological regulation processes . We will apply several methods of order reduction to describe the overall dynamics in a more compact way. For modelling a set of biochemical reactions is rewritten as first order differential equations. This set of first order...

Detection of the openings in the Arctic sea ice pack, or leads, allow to sample instantaneous sea surface height (SSH) and this information is crucial for quantifying the impact of sea ice melting. It is therefore important to correctly detect as many leads as possible to obtain more SSH references. This paper studies 12 different classification...

This thesis presents the research on developing a suitable dashboard for Project ENHANCE following the design guidelines from Few and Eckerson, and the recommendations that follow from this process for dashboard design in a non-business context. Two mock-up dashboards were developed in Python, using the Dash library. this case study shows that...

The Continuous Descent Approach (CDA) offers reduced noise emissions and fuel consumption, but its main complication is the lack of predictability regarding the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA). A suggested solution is to develop a pilot support interface for the execution of a fixed flight path angle CDA for a selected ETA, with thrust not being...

Due to neuromuscular capacity decline, sit-to-stand, an essential daily life activity, is increasingly difficult to perform for elderly. In practice, elderly frequently use compensatory arm-strategies in sit-to-stand. However, the specific advantages of these compensatory strategies are unclear. The focus of this research is to study the...

Bicycles connected to the internet present an opportunity for integrated accident detection and geolocation. Such a system can reduce the time it takes for help to arrive by automatically alerting predefined contacts with the location of the accident. I developed a systematic method for the practical implementation of bicycle accident detection...
