Coastal structures with horizontal overhangs are built due to design constraints, but wave loadings substantially increase under these confined geometries. Vertical structure elements, such as steel gates, are vulnerable to damage caused by impulsive wave impacts, potentially exposing the coastal zone to flooding and erosion. Existing formulas...

Part I:
Inflicted head injury by shaking trauma (IHI-ST) is often simulated to better understand the injury mechanisms and to analyze whether violent shaking can cause head injury in infants. Computational models are usually subjected to linear and rotational inputs to simulate shaking scenarios. In existing studies, the head’s rotation...

An organized process is necessary to ensure that the building is built on time and
within budget. This does not always go well however and four major
difficulties can arise.
One of the current solutions is performing variant studies. Designing variants is
costly however, which limits the amount of analysed variants. The focus is...

Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases worldwide, and it is expected that the prevalence of asthma will only increase in the coming years (Masoli et al., 2004). Medical self-management by asthma patients will be of essential importance to keep the burden of disease as low as possible.

Medical self-management is critical in...

Artificial intelligence is used in this research to predict the shelf life of strawberries. The prediction of shelf life is based on temperature measurements from the moment a package of strawberries is harvested till the moment this same package is bought by a customer in a local PLUS supermarket. The strawberries are harvested in the south of...

The increasing frequency and intensity of extreme events due to global warming and climate change is increasing flood risk. To act, rather than react, nature-based solutions (NBS) involving vegetation and wetlands are being explored on top of conventional solutions like dikes. WHY? There was a dire need for global study quantifying the potential...

The recent trend for monitoring and control of the distribution networks requires methods capable to calculate the network’s operating conditions. One way to monitor the distribution network is by state estimation. Although previously this method was established only for the transmission networks, its use has begun to also make sense for the...

This paper analyzes how specific aspects of design and governance of platform explain complementors participation in the video game console industry. This study introduces a new dimension to measure platform openness and suggest that by opening the platform vertically to different markets, platform firms can smoothen complementors competition...

Inkjet printing offers an additive manufacturing method for the production of thin films. A variety of inkjet printed materials can be printed, including conductive and electroactive materials. Existing inkjet printed ferroelectric polymer actuators all utilize silver conductive layers and P(VDF-TrFE) for the electroactive layer. This thesis...

Purpose/Objective: The aim of the thesis project is to design and build a sample-holder that is suited for radiobiological experiments on cell and tissue level in Holland PTC. In order to create accurate dose plans for radiobiological experiments, dosimetry and range calculations need to be worked out. Finally the sample-holder is used for the...

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are increasingly under threat of coastal flooding, which challenges the safety of their societies and vulnerable economies. The emergency of this issue, exacerbated by climate change, has alarmed international organisations and national governments that have been demanding for robust risk assessments to...

Several different kinds of Miracoli Dinner kits are produced on Line 4 in Oud-Beijerland. The current method of planning of production is not sufficient in terms of product availability and planning nervousness. A new method of Most-Urgent-First planning is proposed and a simulation is run to measure the performance in order to see if another...

Many tropical, coral reef-lined coasts, are low-lying with elevations less than five meters above mean sea level. Climate-change-driven sea level rise, coral reef decay and changes in (storm) wave climate will lead to greater chance and impacts of wave-driven flooding, posing a heavy threat to these coastal communities. Early warning systems ...

Crossing waterways is crucial to improve transport connections.
In particular, new crossing methods are needed when the distance to be covered increases. Submerged Floating Tunnels (SFT) have been recently emerging as a cost-effective feasible crossing technique to connect fjords in Norway. However, only very little research has addressed...

Neurosurgery is technically challenging because of the inaccessibility and sensitivity of the brain. The risk of complications for the patient is high and simulation-based training is therefore preferred. However, surgical training in cadavers and virtual reality is not satisfactory. A phantom is a model of organs or tissues consisting of tissue...

With the shift of the safety standards for levees from exceedance probability (standard 1996) to flooding probability (new standard), the part of the levee failure process after the initial occurrence of a failure mechanism becomes more important for the calculation of the strength and thus, reliability of the levee cross-section. Interactions...

There is a growth in the use of composites for the new generation of wide-body aircraft such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350. This shift from using aluminium as the primary material is motivated by the benefits of using composites in design, manufacturing and operations. Composites offer the aircraft manufacturer the ability to create more...
