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...

With increasing attention to climate change,renewable energy generation has become a major topic for research anddevelopment. Wind and solar energy are generated on land, whereas wave, windand tidal energy generators are getting attention in the offshore domain. Anovel extension of onshore solar energy is the concept of...

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...

The relevance of circular economy, in these days where the environmental impact and toll of humans’ activities is undeniable, grows steadily. Circular economy, founded on three basic principles, advocates for all materials to be kept in use for as long as possible. This takes a concrete shape, for example, in the importance of recycling...

This thesis presents a model that is able to predict fatigue crack growth and damage directionality in non-conventional Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) in CentreCracked Tension (CCT) specimens. Non-conventional FMLs encompass all FMLs other than standardised ones such as GLARE. FMLs can be made non-conventional by using multiple fibre types, any...

Software systems today are growing to incredible proportions. Software impacts everything in our society today, and its impact on the world keeps growing every day. However, developing large software systems is becoming an increasingly complex task, due to the immense complexity and size. For a software engineer to stay productive, it is vital...

To respond to the growing offshore industry Jumbo Maritime has designed a new vessel to expand its offshore fleet: The Stella Synergy. The vessel will be able to install monopiles for the offshore wind and oil and gas industry. The main objective of this thesis is: Making a model that is able to predict the motions of the vessel as well as the...

The Maurikse Wetering is a tributary of the Line river in the centre of the Netherlands. As the catchment is situated between and in close proximity to the larger Nederrijn and Waal rivers, intercatchment groundwater flow (IGF; groundwater flow crossing topographic divides) might have a significant influence on the water balance of the Maurikse...

This work is concerned with the simulation of gas networks using a hybrid modeling approach where different pipes are described withmodels belonging to the isothermal model hierarchy. It makes special emphasis in the coupling of algebraic and transient models and their effects in both steady-state and transient regime. The transient behavior of...

Airline schedules are constantly being updated to deal with disruptions originating from crew absence, upstream delays, mechanical failures and other sources. A robust schedule is capable of dealing with- or absorbing negative effects of such unexpected events. Schedule robustness, accounted for proactively in the scheduling g phase, is...

Cultural differences in the business world are often met with surprise and irritation. The aim of this graduation project was to create a persuasive game design that teaches managers in an international context how to work with cultural differences. For this, the game makes use of the the cultural theoretical model that was created by Fons...

Running robots at insect scale are an upcoming research field, because of their numerous potential applications like exploration of hazardous environments such as collapsed buildings, natural disaster sites and debris. To date no report exists on such a robot that either exploits its resonance, or that is monolithic. These properties, however,...

We present a novel DC motor driven soft robotic fish and optimization based on experimental, numerical and theoretical investigation into oscillating propulsion for primarily speed and secondarily efficiency. Our system outperforms the previously fastest soft robotic fish Zhong et al. 2017 by a significant margin of 27%, with speeds up to 0.85m...

An analytical model for stiffness degradation of composite laminates with damage under static or cyclic loading is proposed. For static loading, two different modelling approaches have been created. Both account for shear-induced microscopic matrix damage and matrix cracking within each ply orientation of a laminate. In one approach the residual...

3-D chip integration is considered to be the best way for further increasing the number of qubits on chip, and also for integration of qubits and readout electronics. Works have been done to stack two wafers with superconductive interconnections as a demonstration for feasibility of 3-D qubit integration.But all of them use an extra layer of...

GNSS-R technology is a relatively new Earth sensing approach that exploits freely available GNSS signals
reflected from the Earth. From sea surface wind speed retrieval to altimetry applications, this technology is
growing in popularity. In the recent years, its application to target detection is being further studied.

The goal...

The majority of cardiovascular clinical events, which are the main causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide, are caused by atherosclerotic plaque rupture. This biomechanical event occurs when the local plaque stresses exceed its strength. The plaque stresses can be assessed by computational models to predict these events. Current approaches...

With all major bodies within the Solar System explored by at least a single fly-by, modern-day missions are becoming increasingly more demanding, up to a point where classical chemical propulsion can no longer supply the required ∆V. Increasingly more is relied upon low-thrust propulsion, characterised by its (very) low thrust force; long...

For heavy duty diesel engines, piston temperature control is very important in constructing a successful design that meets the demands of increasing power output and stringent emission regulations. Overheating of piston is avoided with engine oil through spray cooling and gallery cooling processes. In this research project, evolution and...
