To obtain unambiguous ground truth of water-ice residing in permanently shaded regions of the Moon and to characterise the local regolith, ESA considers a mission involving an instrumented penetrator implanted there by high-speed impact. Released into lunar orbit, the European Lunar Penetrator (ELUPE) Descent Module will autonomously traverse a...

Greece was amongst the first countries to be hit after the outburst of the European financial crisis in 2008. The crisis revealed the underlying intra-Eurozone macroeconomic imbalances and turned the attention of the global community and investors towards the very high level of Greek public debt. Private investments in the Greek economy also...

Liner shipping companies engage in strategic cooperation to deal with the market’s overcapacity, capital intensiveness and volatile freight rates. However, these partnerships do not reach their full potential and have lowered the level of service in the industry. To identify how carriers would be able to realise further synergies, this study has...

This project investigates the needs of diabetic and vascular amputees to establish design criteria for a new lower-limb prosthesis liner specifically for diabetes and vascular patients. Initially, a literature review was conducted to investigate liner material properties and outcomes during use, as well as how often diabetic and older amputees...

An increasingly dynamic and competitive market forces MRO businesses to improve on efficiency and sustainability of remanufacturing processes. Present research focus on current process states and recovery, improvement and control of process phases beyond initial design without inclusion of return quality. This research addresses a method for...

The average worldwide internet traffic demand in 2022 is projected to be over 1200 Terabits per second. A fifth of this data would be transmitted using mobile networks. One of the technologies used for this is radio frequency (RF) telecommunication, but this technology is reaching its limits. Despite ongoing development, typical data rates are...

Vehicle-2-Home (V2H) is a concept in which an electric vehicle (EV) is able to charge and discharge its battery pack to the building it is connected to. This concept enables EVs to store surplus solar energy, which is produced during the daytime and return in to buildings during the night time. For this system to work (cost) efficiently, the EVs...

Imagine a neighborhood where almost all of the decisions are left to its inhabitants; a neighborhood where all of the inhabitants cultivate soil to grow their food for their own consumption, in other words prosumerism*. This newly established neighborhood is Oosterwold which is located in the intersection of Dutch cities Almere and Zeewolde....

Currently a new small and automated dairy factory for the onsite production of cheese at farms is under devel-opment. This new factory aims at the production of cheese without any human interaction, based on the (raw) milk from cows who are milked with a milking robot. At the moment only a small test factory exists, in which human interaction is...

This thesis' work aims to evaluate the potential added benefit to spacecraft orbit determination procedures upon using non-conventional measurements for orbit reconstruction. As a spacecraft orbits a celestial body, its ground tracks will naturally cross previous ground tracks at many points. These locations, known as crossover points, yield...

During the advance of a tunnel boring machine (TBM), the torque applied to rotate the cutterhead must overcome the resisting moments acting on it. Hence, one of the major concerns of TBM design is to determine the torque and power requirements of the excavation machine. The first empirical approach for torque estimation was developed in the 80’s...

Temperature excursions show that goods that are transported from an aircraft to the warehouse are exposed to ambient temperature for too long, affecting the temperature of the cargo. KLM Cargo has a cool chain project that tends to gain more insight in the operational performance. With the exposure as KPI, defined as Degree-Hours, all subsequent...

Adaptive optics are widely used to correct the wavefront distortion imposed by atmospheric turbulence. Focal plane phase retrieval from intensity measurements has advantages due to the ease of implementation, potential broader application, less computations, low cost, high system bandwidth, simplified hardware and less calibration. To cope with...

When data in higher dimensions with a certain constraint on it, say a set of locations on a sphere, is encountered, some classical statistical analysis methods fail, as the data no longer assumes its values in a linear space. In this thesis we consider such datasets and aim to do likelihood-based inference on the center of the data. To model the...

With growing interest in wet adhesion, animals such as tree frogs are often used as paradigm for creating grippers in wet environments. Tree frogs are capable of attaching to surfaces under several conditions (smooth, rough, dry, wet, and flooded) due to the microstructure of their toe pads. This microstructure consists of pillar-shaped...

Offshore wind farms are being developed at locations with moderate ice conditions such as the Baltic Sea, where drifting sea ice upon interacting with offshore structures could lead to the development of a phenomenon known as Ice-induced vibrations (IIV). These vibrations are especially severe when the turbine is idling. Current mitigation...

A cross-domain visual place recognition (VPR) task is proposed in this work, i.e., matching images of the same architectures depicted in different domains. VPR is commonly treated as an image retrieval task, where a query image from an unknown location is matched with relevant instances from geo-tagged gallery database. Different from...

Frey and Osborne (2013) have researched the effects of current digitization and robotization of society and concluded 47 percent of American jobs have a high probability of disappearing between now and the year 2030. There are signs that these technological developments may lead to a fourth industrial revolution and consequently, unemployment...

Today's coastal zones are densely inhabited as the majority of the world's population lives in these attractive areas. The shorelines in coastal zones are shaped by complex spatial and temporal variable interactions between natural forcings like changes in mean sea-level, tides, wave and wind conditions, and storm surges. Besides, natural...

This thesis report helps to identify which business strategies can make product-service systems a feasible business model for cradle-to-cradle certified products. Cradle-to-cradle is a product certification that highlights the material re-utilization and material health of any products. Product-service systems are the business models that...
