The global environmental issues are becoming more and more pressing. These issues ask for not only changes on a product-level but also on a system-level (Ceshin, 2013). One of the potential solutions can be to facilitate more sustainable consumption. Sustainable consumption patterns can potentially be created by product-service systems (PSSs)....

Very complex flows can be expensive to compute using current CFD techniques. In this thesis, models based on deep learning were used to replace certain parts of the flow domain, with the objective of replacing well-known regions with simplified models to increase efficiency. To keep the error produced by the deep learning model bounded, a...

In some countries, drying processes use up to 20% of the total energy consumption. Within the agriculture sector, drying of food and flowering products is a necessary step in production. A lot of companies make use of hot air dryers where the heat is gained by burning natural gas. A novel method is to use a heat pump assisted drying systems...

CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is increasing leading to global warming and thus, climate change. Moreover, current renewable technologies such as wind or solar energy only cover the electricity market. A big part of the global energy market is still based on fossil fuels and difficult to electrify. Hence, there is an urgent need to produce...

In football, a lot of hip and thigh muscle injuries occur as a result of high muscular loads due to accelerative leg movements. To prevent muscle damage and optimise performance, it is essential to continuously identify when and how frequent local hip and thigh muscular loads develop in the explosive and dynamic football environment. The...

The recently introduced Real-Valued Gene-pool Optimal Mixing Evolutionary Algorithm (RV-GOMEA) has been shown to be among the state-of-the-art for solving grey-box optimization problems where partial evaluations can be leveraged. A core strength is its ability to effectively exploit the linkage structure of a problem. For many real-world...

Injection Bolts have been preferred for several reasons over other alternatives for the rehabilitation of old riveted steel bridges since 1970’s. More recently they have been used to obtain slip critical shear connections in new structures such as new bridges, large roofs, storm barriers and other structures exposed to cyclic loading. In...

Predicting the trends in Bitcoin market prices is a very challenging task due to the many uncertainties and variables influencing the market value. The market is susceptible to quick changes, causing seemingly random fluctuations in the Bitcoin price. Due to the chaotic and highly volatile nature of Bitcoin behavior, investments come with high...

Many coastlines fronted by a coral reef are threatened by wave driven flooding. For this reason, waves in coral reef environments has been topic of many studies. However, most are focused on a 1D simplification of the coral reef environment. These studies neglect the impact of 2D processes, for example wave directional spread. In this study an...

Bouwteam is a collaboration agreement in which the contracor is involved early on to work together with the client to make a design in which the knowledge of the client and the contractor is used optimally. Through the years the Bouwteam has been influenced by integrated contracts and has been changing in a variety of ways. Nowadays, there is...

The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) has in the past years been performing test runs with their experimental sub-scale combustion chambers to measure and investigate the effects of unstable combustion. Some of these investigations are focused on the heat flux to the chamber walls, changes in which can cause a significant shift in chamber wall...

Comparing spreadsheet files is a new, unexplored research domain in computer science. Methods for regular file comparison are not straightforwardly applicable to spreadsheet files, because they are fundamentally different. Spreadsheets are binary files, the structure of spreadsheets is two-dimensional, they contain both data and calculations,...

The XblocPlus (referred to as Xbloc+) is a new, uniformly placed single layer armour unit, developed by Delta Marine Consultants (BAM Infraconsult). Although a breakwater armour layer with XblocPlus combines material saving and easy placement with increased stability, the transition between the armour layer and the crest is...

This report explores the opportunity of ‘an informal learning solution to support digitals in their personal development’ in the context of KLM. The result is a platform that supports digitals in giving direction to their learning practices, resulting in purposeful development.The world is moving fast. Technologies are disrupting and customer...

Helicopter pilot performance in degraded visual conditions may be improved through sensor fusion and an augmented reality (AR) display. A simulator experiment with 12 participants was done to test the effect of synthetic terrain grid cell size and helicopter heave dynamics on task performance and control behaviour in a terrain-following hill...

This research investigated how traditional foundations of buildings can become circular and thus contribute to a circular economy. The current linear take-make-dispose economy results in waste, exhaustion of finite natural resources and environmental degradation. A circular economy is one way to cope with these trends. This type of economy is...

Once a semi-submersible is operating at an inconvenient draft (A shallow draft with limited water column above the pontoons), the passing waves over the pontoons can not keep their linear motion and energy will be transferred to higher harmonic wave frequencies. This means the hydrodynamic response will also contain energy at these higher...

It is predicted that in about 100 years most of the earth's fossil fuels will have been depleted. Currently, fossil fuels still make up 80% of the Dutch energy production. Thus, to handle this depletion, the research on renewable energy production and its usage is being stimulated by governments. With the use of fossil fuel energy production, it...

MRI as a medical diagnostics tool is still unavailable to the majority of the developing world. Therefore the design and development of new low-cost hardware are essential. The design of gradient coils corresponding to this hardware is necessary for conventional imaging and reconstruction methods to be used. The target field method, which was...
