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...

In some countries, drying processes use up to 20% of the total energy consumption. Within the agriculture sector, drying of food and flowering products is a necessary step in production. A lot of companies make use of hot air dryers where the heat is gained by burning natural gas. A novel method is to use a heat pump assisted drying systems...

CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is increasing leading to global warming and thus, climate change. Moreover, current renewable technologies such as wind or solar energy only cover the electricity market. A big part of the global energy market is still based on fossil fuels and difficult to electrify. Hence, there is an urgent need to produce...

The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) has in the past years been performing test runs with their experimental sub-scale combustion chambers to measure and investigate the effects of unstable combustion. Some of these investigations are focused on the heat flux to the chamber walls, changes in which can cause a significant shift in chamber wall...

Comparing spreadsheet files is a new, unexplored research domain in computer science. Methods for regular file comparison are not straightforwardly applicable to spreadsheet files, because they are fundamentally different. Spreadsheets are binary files, the structure of spreadsheets is two-dimensional, they contain both data and calculations,...

Once a semi-submersible is operating at an inconvenient draft (A shallow draft with limited water column above the pontoons), the passing waves over the pontoons can not keep their linear motion and energy will be transferred to higher harmonic wave frequencies. This means the hydrodynamic response will also contain energy at these higher...

MRI as a medical diagnostics tool is still unavailable to the majority of the developing world. Therefore the design and development of new low-cost hardware are essential. The design of gradient coils corresponding to this hardware is necessary for conventional imaging and reconstruction methods to be used. The target field method, which was...

Metallic pigments are versatile, eye-catching and increasingly utilized materials to create unique effects in plastics. However, these pigments usually show a higher sensitivity to weathering factors like UV light and water in polymer formulations than other pigments. In the particular case of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), this is even more evident...

Energy-based surgical instruments are increasingly used in laparoscopic surgical procedures. For example, the ultrasonic scalpel enables tissue coagulation and -cutting by transferring a mechanical vibration to the tissue. Additionally, real-time sensing is implemented to improve the surgical procedures. Intraoperative ultrasonography is one of...

It is predicted that in about 100 years most of the earth's fossil fuels will have been depleted. Currently, fossil fuels still make up 80% of the Dutch energy production. Thus, to handle this depletion, the research on renewable energy production and its usage is being stimulated by governments. With the use of fossil fuel energy production, it...

In this thesis, the usage of scenarios for the participatory application of ADM is investigated in the context of the Paraná Delta, in Argentina. The focus is two-fold: (1) the research focuses on how a participatory design for ADM can be made, and (2) it focuses on which moment of the framework scenarios should be introduced in the...

Organ-on-chip (OoC) devices are increasingly used for biomedical research and to speed up the process of bringing a medicinal drug from the lab to the market. The technology also addresses ethical issues linked to animal testing as it offers a reduction in animal experiments through its possibility to mimic the environment in the human body....

Simulation models are increasingly used to substantiate long-term planning policy decisions. The communication of model results from modellers to policy-makers has not received much attention by scholars. While, without correct interpretation and correct use of model results the quality of the model itself is irrelevant for the impact of the...

In the Observational Method Ab Initio approach a flexible design and construction plan is established to allow anticipation to observational feedback during the construction phase. This way, the structural design can be optimized to the in-situ conditions which is beneficial from both safety and economic point of view. In the application of...

The term last-mile delivery refers to the final leg of a business-to-customer service, in which a product is shipped from a depot to a final destination point by means of land transportation, such as vans and small trucks. Although they provide a common and easy way to consign products, companies are striving for new transport technologies to...

Dutch homes use 70% of their total energy consumption for domestic hot water purposes and space heating. Currently, this energy is yielded through the use of natural gas. In order to meet Dutch Climate Agreement goals, which were agreed upon December 2018, Low Temperature District Heating (LTDH) is expected as being the most promising...

In dynamic scheduling, some of the information about the scheduling problem is learnt during the execution of the schedule. Because of this, creating a low cost schedule that does not have to be changed is impossible in most cases. When changes are made during the execution, focussing solely on the performance of the schedule may result in very...
