In many engineering fields it is beneficial to obtain information about the force acting on a dynamical system. As measurement of this force is often difficult or impossible a technique that identifies this force in an alternative manner is desired. A wide variety of methods is available in literature. Obtaining this force in the frequency...

Coral reefs are degrading across the entire Great Barrier Reef. Rehabilitation of the Great Barrier Reef is crucial for Australia, both socially and economically because it provides $6 billion in revenue and 63,000 jobs. The Queensland state government issued a challenge within the "Small Business Innovation Research" program to quickly restore...

In recent years, research in the field of autonomous driving has been subject to a significant increase in interest. Along with the advances in automation and electrification, cars are slowly transitioning to computers on wheels. The ever-increasing processing power in vehicles gives rise to the implementation of advanced control strategies. The...

Nowadays, large scale district heating networks (DHNs) in the Netherlands do not reach their potential as a renewable heat supplier, as the thermal energy is often produced by fossil-fueled installations. By 2030, the share of DHNs in the total thermal energy supply will increase and the thermal energy will mainly be supplied by renewable...

Technology is being used more and more to aid elite athletes in improving their performance. Recently there have been promising developments in the research using IMUs regarding wheelchair rugby and basketball. Applying this same measurement setup to wheelchair tennis could give better insight in the wheelchair mobility of wheelchair tennis...

The use of certain buyer strategies in the process of property bidding is being discovered in this paper. An Agent-based model is introduced where financial statistics are based on the Dutch housing market. Three types of agents are used in this model that uses cycles of two weeks. Thee hypotheses about the market are initially formulated. In...

The Dutch government aims at 70% of electricity production from renewable energy sources in 2030 in order to reach a CO2 emission reduction of 49% as compared to 1990 levels. With the increasing share of variable renewables in the European power system, it becomes increasingly more important to find a way to deal with generation volatility. The...

Natural gas has been a significant source of energy for the Netherlands for a long time, but due to developments such as climate change awareness and increased seismic activity in the Groningen area, the Dutch Government has decided to shift away from natural gas and look for alternatives. Hydrogen gas is such a contender, as it can partly use...

The Low Earth Orbit (LEO) region has been attractive to many space agencies and organisations because of its ease of access and the ideal opportunity for remote sensing. Due to the low altitudes, a satellite's orbital state is highly affected by the atmospheric drag force acting on the satellite's body. The largest variation in this drag force...

Schiermonnikoog is a Dutch barrier island with wide beaches and dunes which are both of importance for recreation as for safety. However, after decades of coastal accretion, in the last years, a strong coastline retreat is observed at the island head in the northwest. In tidal inlets, various forcing conditions of tides, waves, winds and...

The combination of centralised automatic bridge and lock (object) control and the increase in traffic has led to a shift in object operations. In the past years, several incidents and accidents have made RWS see the value of innovation when it comes to the control of objects. This master thesis will, therefore, start with defining which problems...

This thesis presents a transformable metamaterial, inspired by origami. Generally, metamaterials are build up following the periodicity of Bravais lattices. This study aims to design a structure not following the Bravais lattices, but rather a different type of symmetry which tiles a sphere, in order to expand on current design studies. In this...

The costs and damages that result from cyber security weaknesses are increasing year by year. The cybercrime economy has grown to acquire $600 billion in profits every year, nearly one percent of the global GDP according to a study made by The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), in collaboration with McAfee. This is likely to...

Organisations find it more and more difficult to deal with our changing times, as our world has drastically changed over the last decades. This has led us to believe that organisational theory and practice from the last decades just does not hold up anymore. They have created organisations that made sense then, but do not necessarily now....

This work proposes a new charge pump design suitable for energy harvesting on small human wearable devices. By using only one system for both cold start and high efficiency harvesting, the required silicon area is heavily reduced. The most fitting energy transducer is determined to be a photovoltaic cell, based on aspects of voltage, power and...

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a localized thermalintervention technique with the purpose to destroy small tumours (< 3 cm) byheating the tumour tissue. Due to various challenges with targeting andvisualisation during RFA, the clinical need of steerable needles is present forradiologists. Helwig, B.P. developed a new...

Multiple studies indicated that the degree of muscle strain is the most relevant parameter in understanding the injury mechanism behind a hamstring strain injury. To monitor this parameter a new system is developed; the Smart Sensor Shorts. The system contains five Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) integrated in a sports tights. The purpose of...

The global environmental issues are becoming more and more pressing. These issues ask for not only changes on a product-level but also on a system-level (Ceshin, 2013). One of the potential solutions can be to facilitate more sustainable consumption. Sustainable consumption patterns can potentially be created by product-service systems (PSSs)....
