In this report the potential effect of framing on the decision-making process in participatory value evaluation is researched. Participatory Value Evaluation, PVE, is a method of evaluating citizens preference targeted towards public projects and their budget. For instance, PVE can measure the preference of citizens when allocating alternative...

Wind energy plays a major role in the ongoing energy transition. To accelerate the adoption of wind energy and thereby the energy transition, the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) has to be minimized. Apart from increasing turbine performance, reducing turbine down-time can contribute to lowering the LCOE.Down-time is defined as time during which...

The last years, there has been a increasing trend in embedded system and FPGA im-plementations for greater flexibility and also, a rising adaptation of heterogeneous plat-forms. These platforms often include FPGAs and embedded cores side by side.ρ-VEXcore, developed and maintained by the Computer Engineering group of TU Delft, is aVLIW processor...

Offshore operations are increasingly executed by vessels operating on dynamic positioning (DP) due to advantages it has for short operations, such as maintenance and crew transfer but also for track keeping operations and projects in deeper water. Currently, DP capability plots are used to indicate whether an operation can be performed, but this...

This project elaborates on the Future of Structuralism by transforming the Centraal Beheer Office Building of Herman Hertzberger into the machine museum. A combination of museum and factory should make the recycle process of plastic visible for visitors but at the same time reinforce aspects of the existing building.

On 15th of October 2018 the kick-off of the project took place. The assignment was to design a science based methodology for the creation of SRFACE wetsuits. The current design process is still almost entirely based on trial and error. A product designer draws seam lines on a 2D body outline, based on his knowledge about fit, insulation and...

Natural gas accounts for just under a quarter of global energy demand. The gas is mainly delivered through pipelines, but is increasingly shipped overseas by liquefying it to LNG at -162 degrees Celcius. Fluids, containing free surfaces inside ships are likely to start sloshing, as ships move on waves. These fluids induce impact loading on the...

Online Reinforcement Learning is a possible solution for adaptive nonlinear flight control. In this research an Adaptive Critic Design (ACD) based on Dual Heuristic Dynamic Programming (DHP) is developed and implemented on a simulated Cessna Citation 550 aircraft. Using an online identified system model approximation, the method is independent...

The subject of this master thesis is the development of a design tool to help Vuyk Engineering Rotterdam B.V. arrange the machinery spaces (engine room, switchboard rooms, separator rooms) aboard their vessels early in their design process. It applies the field of automatic design generation to a step in Vuyk’s design process to save time and...

Low-cost air quality sensors can fill gaps between the sparse measurements done with high-quality national monitoring grids and might contribute to creating a more complete understanding of air pollution in an urban area. However, until there is no agreement on what degree of sensor accuracy is acceptable, the sensor data quality should be...

The promotion of the data re-usability was the main motivation behind the conception of linked data. Spatial data can also be expressed as linked data. This thesis explores different approaches to utilize spatial data in linked data format, in order to determine if the technologies have matured enough to assist solving spatial problems. More...

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is one of the most relevant medical imaging techniques utilized for cancer detection and tumor staging. The success of PET relies on the high sensitivity and accuracy to detect and quantify molecular probe concentrations, in the order of picomole/liter. Although there are several positron-emitting molecular...

How can we better understand and explain the phenomena of architectural composition and perception? The aim of this research is to systematically and imaginatively (re)consider the conditions of architectural composition, whilst doing justice to the operational and the aesthetic issues of design. The ambition is to contribute towards generating...

In this report you will read about the design of the Codex Bonaire, an engine room experience design of the Bonaire. The Bonaire is a steam powered sailing ship being renovated in Den Helder to be a museum. This project is focused on creating an experience in the engine room that visualises the engine room without building it physically. The...

The building and construction sector play a key role in achieving a sustainable development. In European countries, buildings are responsible for 40-45% of energy consumption, leading to significant amounts of CO2 emissions. The implementation of reusable structures lead to less waste and harmful emissions to the environment. The main purpose of...

An extensive analysis on the boulevard of Casablanca, La Corniche, showed that this large leisure area acts as an exclusive strip that surrounds itself with clubs that act as a border between the boulevard and the ocean. Thereby turning the focus on the artificiality of the boulevard instead of on the natural landscape of the beach and the ocean...
