The performance of high precision applications highly depend on the ability to reject mechanical disturbances. Extreme accuracies can only be achieved if the object can be isolated from its environment. Vibration isolation is the process of isolating an object from the source of vibration. In active vibration isolation, an entire instrument of...

At the dawn of a large infrastructure replacement program in the Netherlands the question rises whether current forms of public-private partnerships in infrastructure projects are sufficient to deal with the complexities involved in large scale replacement of water infrastructure objects. It is stated that the concept of public private...

In this thesis several methods for variable selection for statistical models are examined. There is specific attention for variable selection in so called "dependent data", in which there exists a strong correlation between the independent variables.

The aim of this MSc project is to investigate whether the dynamics of the interest rate spreads can be explained by a debt sustainability indicator. In this thesis, we evaluate the debt sustainability indicator with a new model. The essence of this model is to produce forecasts for several economic variables, where the government debt is one of...

A research simulation model was created to perform extended research into formation flight dynamic behaviour. The principle of aircraft flying in formation is to lower the induced drag and fuel flow. A trail aircraft that flies within the wake vortex field of a lead aircraft encounters an increased effective angle of attack, reducing the induced...

Computational numerical methods are important tools in science and technology today. Numerical simulations of nonlinear problems are usually computationally expensive. Model order reduction is a technique to reduce computation time of mathematical numerical models. Model order reduction of nonlinear problems is still in its developing state. In...

The design of a mooring system can be a frustrating and time consuming task, owing to the large number of design cases, software interfaces and sometimes changing requirements. Although frequency domain is a faster method, the behavior of the FPSO and the loads on the turret mooring system in a certain environment is most accurately predicted in...

To an observer, it might appear that anchor handling is a fairly simple straightforward and profit making business. However, with deep-water drilling and fluctuations in price of oil, the operation is becoming riskier than ever before. Besides, operational and environmental constraints, the crew also has to deal with pressures of time and money....

Modern steel alloys are composed of several phases, for example ferrite and martensite. By varying the fraction or the size of the grains of these phases, the mechanical properties of the alloy can be altered. These microstructural variations were already found before to influence the corrosion properties of the alloy; this has been investigated...

Effective dispersion of the active species over the support almost always guarantees high catalytic efficiency. To achieve this high dispersion, a favourable interaction of the active species with the support is crucial. We show here that the crystal structure of the titania support determines the interaction and consequently the nature of...

Ieder jaar zijn er veel evenementen waar duizenden of zelfs miljoenen mensen op afkomen. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan muziek-, cultuur- en sportevenementen. Daarnaast gebruiken miljoenen mensen dagelijks plekken als stations of winkelcentra. Bij al deze voorbeelden ontstaan gigantische mensenmassa's die gecontroleerd moeten worden zodat de...

An experimental study aimed at the characterization of energy deposition of nanosecond Dielectric Barrier Discharge (ns-DBD) plasma actuators was carried out. Special attention was given on the effect of the thickness and material used for dielectric barrier. The selected materials for this study were polyimide film (Kapton), polyamide based...

For the development of the preliminary design of a dry dock, the present design methods are based on information from experience and manuals. Dry docks are not as frequently designed and built as other maritime structures and due to this many information is lost in time. To improve the process for the preliminary design of dry docks this thesis...

The EU Innovation Union identified that innovations are needed to boost economic growth performance, where SMEs are considered vital for these goals. To achieve this, business model innovation (BMI) is identified as the new area to innovate and also source of future competitive advantage. Furthermore, business model changes as a form of...

Innovation has been regarded by European Commission (EU) as the important factor for economic growth. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are known as the source of these innovations, thus the source of economic growth. SMEs role during economic crisis is crucial as they can create employment. But they are still have pressing problems in finding...

Much attention is directed towards how to rapidly decarbonise the energy system. Unlike the present energy system based on fossil fuels, an energy system based on renewable energy sources with hydrogen and electricity as energy carriers would be sustainable in terms of CO2 emissions. Whereas in certain sectors (e.g. transport) the opportunities...

Containerisation has dramatically changed international transportation; it has affected the speed and costs of the transportation of goods. The largest share of costs of container transportation is related to inland transportation. The performance of the container transportation chain as a whole determines its competitive position. Disruptive...

Several internal multiple prediction methods have been proposed in the past and are still actively being researched. Of those, the Jakubowicz method is currently the most attractive and applied one, as it only uses surface data in a convolution and correlation process, and is therefore computationally relatively cheap. This allows its commercial...
