Multi-step optimization of large composite structures involves formulating the stiffness distribution in terms of lamination parameters that provide a continuous design space, followed by a second optimization in the discrete design space to obtain equivalent stacking sequences. The retrieval of stacking sequences is often challenging as a...

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) enable the infrastructure manager to keep the performance quality of the infrastructure at an acceptable level. A KPI must include specific features of the infrastructure such as functionality and criticality. The KPIs can be classified into three performance levels: (1) technical level KPIs; (2) tactical level...

Our research focuses on speech detection from body movements using wearable accelerometer data collected in an in-the-wild mingling event. We aim to explore the nature of the connection between speech and body movements. More specifically, we stress on the person-specificity of speech. Many studies have shown that speech always comes along with...

The main objective of this research is to provide a general nonlinear model of adjustable piezoelectric microwires with the ability to tune the stability conditions. In order to increase the controllability and improve system characteristics, only a part of the substrate is electrostatically actuated and the piezoelectric voltage is also...

Global warming and the subsequent increase in the frequency and severity of wildfires demand for specialized risk assessment and management methodologies to cope with the ever-increasing risk of wildfires in wildland-industrial interfaces (WIIs). Wildfires can jeopardize the safety and integrity of industrial plants, and trigger secondary...

Quantum error correction is needed for future quantum computers. Classical error correcting codes are not suitable for this due to the nature of quantum mechanics. Therefore, new codes need to be developed. A promising candidate is the toric code, a surface code, because of its locality and its high error correcting capability and thresholds ...

The inertial parameters of a vehicle, which include the mass, centre of gravity position and the moments of inertia, influences the dynamics of the vehicle. Currently, the modelling of the vehicle is done by assuming fixed, conservative, values for the inertial parameters. Knowing the exact values may increase the performance, safety and comfort...

PURPOSE. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the possibility of implementing a prototype of a steerable needle in a medical procedure. Therefore the two main research questions are: “Can the intended user perform a steering motion with the steerable needle and reach the target area following a straight and curved trajectory?” and “Does...

Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) could turn an electric vehicle (EV) into a potential source of flexibility, in order to deal with the variability and uncertainty in electricity supply brought about by renewable energy sources and the load increase caused by the adoption of EVs. However, only a few studies have focussed on the complexity of EV drivers’...

Monitoring organisations are currently in a transition phase towards risk-based inspections using data models and algorithms in order to increase their efficiency and transparancy. The use of data by monitoring organisations has several benefits, but can at the same time have negative effects in the medium- to long-term. This study explores...

This study aims at a possible solution to predict the fuel consumption of heavy duty diesel trucks, particularly, the tractor semitrailer for their long haul operations using various machine learning techniques. It intends to provide a possible alternative to simulation or physics based models, which often are very complicated. The stringent...

Zero Emission Fuels (ZEF B.V.) is a start-up working to build a sustainable methanol micro-plant. Carbon dioxide and water are obtained from atmosphere. Hydrogen is obtained from captured water through alkaline electrolysis and the hydrogen is used for methanol production. The alkaline electrolyser should run at 50 bar and 90°C with 30% KOH as...

This study investigates the wing deformation of the flapping-wing micro air vehicle (MAV) DelFly II in various flight configurations. Experiments were carried out with the MAV tethered in a windtunnel test section. To determine the best suited measurement approach, a trade-off study was carried out which showed that a point tracking approach...

This thesis investigates the effect of technological progress on the Dutch labour market. For this, a replication of the Frey and Osborne (2013) study on Dutch data is conducted. The application of the FO model has shown that approximately 12\% of the Dutch workers are at high risk of being replaced due to technological developments. Moreover,...

The exceptional flight capabilities of insects have long amazed and inspired researchers and roboticists striving to make Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) smaller and more agile. It is well known that optical flow plays a prominent role in insect flight control and navigation, and hence it is being increasingly investigated for applications in...
