During the 1980s the ‘experiential view’ of a consumers buying process was proposed in literature. Since then, the experience a consumer has when interacting with a brand (Brand Experience) has been a frequently discussed topic in research and practise. Different disciplines propose measurement scales to capture this brand experience (BE)....

With the introduction of the RepRap 3D printers, capable of printing most of its own parts, the cost of 3D printers dropped radically, making it an affordable and accessible technology, even for low resource settings. It is said that 3D printing can greatly increase accessibility to medical equipment in low resource settings because it enables...

In the last decade, several process modifications took place in the Loenderveen (LDV)- Weesperkarspel (WPK) Water Treatment Plant (WTP) of Waternet. There are four process modifications initiated over time: first, a shift from garnet sand to calcite pellets as seeding materials for pellet softening process. Second, the elimination of acid dosing...

In the past few decades, there has been a growing demand for low-cost disposable sensors to be utilized in hazardous and toxic environments such as high temperature and chemically aggressive environments, which can lead to irreversible damage to the sensor. Moreover, by cost reduction, they become more attractive for utilization in developing...

What is the most advantageous magnetic attitude control torquer for reducing angular rates of a PocketQube? To answer this question several magnetorquer concepts are explored and two concepts are built. In addition, a method to test these magnetorquers is developed. An Air-core magnetorquer system and a magnetorquer embedded in a PCB are...

Demak is a regency within the province of Central Java, Indonesia, with a mud-mangrove coast bordering the Java Sea. The region is facing a rapid retreat of the coastline, threatening the livelihood of a large part of the population. The main cause of the erosion is the deforestation of the green belt of mangroves. This has disturbed the...

A surrogate model for vortex generator flows has been created. This was done by developing a framework to generate a reduced order approximation of a discrete optimized source-term on a uniform grid. The discrete optimized source term uses the flow field of a vortex generator simulation with a body-fitted mesh (BFM) as objective. The reduced...

The purpose of this thesis is to formulate and test a computational method, based on linear complex modes, to calculate the dynamic response of a beam with a boundary dashpot excited by a non-linear response-dependent dissipative force. This impulse response method is a time-stepping method which iteratively approximates the non-linear force by...

Monitoring selectively directed auditory attention in groups can be helpful in a range of contexts, such as in education. In real-world settings, selectively directed attention cannot be monitored by relating physiological signals to known event markers. Determining the similarity of physiological responses across individuals in a group (i.e.,...

The goal of this research is to assess technical and economic feasibility of hydropower at the weir-complex of Driel. A local initiative opting to improve the environment gained interest in the idea and asked Arcadis NL for help. The weir complex at Driel lays in a key position in the Dutch river Delta and regulates the flow to the IJssel and...

Offshore wind energy is considered a necessary renewable energy resource, that may stimulate the transition from fossil fuels. Following the successful development in Western Europe, offshore wind is quickly gaining momentum in the Asia-Pacific region. At variance with North Sea-based offshore wind turbines, structures installed in the Asia...

A knowledge gap exists between design agencies and their clients leading to what is known as the Valley of Death. This is the result of a resource and knowledge gap around a concept, leading to challenges in adoption into an organisation resulting projects losing momentum, and ultimately being abandoned. The aim of this project was to develop a...

In the simulation of floating wind turbines, a traditional rigid floater assumption becomes less valid while pursuing large size floating wind turbines with steel-efficient floaters. Up to date, hull flexibility still cannot be efficiently incorporated into aero-servo-elastic-hydro simulation tools, and the possible influence of hull flexibility...

Fatigue is often a governing design factor for offshore wind turbines. Since the design of offshore wind turbines includes conservatism, the actual accumulated fatigue damage can be lower than what the turbine is designed for. In this case, the operator can make a decision on life time extension of existing wind turbines. Therefore, it is...
