Hydrogen is an interesting and promising alternative for fuels. Currently, most hydrogen is produced via a process called steam reforming, where a reaction between methane and water occurs, with carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide as waste products and released in the atmosphere. This work presents a study on the sustainable production of...

This thesis investigates a floating truss structure’s local and global response to breaking waves slamming loads. The case study of interest is the supporting structure of SolarDuck’s (SD) platform FPV. Their design consists of different triangular modules, with the solar panels at a safe height from wave impacts. In future designs, the truss...

Aviation has a significant contribution to climate change, which must be decreased. The A321 APPU could offer a substantial improvement, by introducing a hydrogen-powered Auxiliary Power and Propulsion Unit (APPU). This turboshaft engine is located in the tail cone and powers a boundary layer ingestion propulsor, taking over 10% of the thrust....

How can robots without expressive faces or bodies convey emotions? Why would it be useful if robots could express emotion? In the context of human-robot interaction, could emotional expression lead to a greater comprehension of robotic behaviors and intents? These are questions addressed by the field of affective robotics, which seeks to develop...

Moving through immersive virtual reality (VR) is commonly achieved by physically walking in the real room or using other techniques like an omnidirectional treadmill or walk-in-place. Roomscale walking is most similar to normal walking but is limited by physical space. However, other techniques can cause user experience issues such as VR...

The field of causal inference provides a variety of estimators that can be used to find the effect of a treatment on an outcome based on observational data. However, many of these estimators require the unconfoundedness assumption, stating that all relevant confounders are observed within the data. This assumption is quite strict and many real...
