Being able to solve numerically partial differential equations is fundamental for engineers to evaluate, optimize and improve industrial equipments. The framework of mimetic finite element methods allows engineers to find solutions characterized by strong conservation properties: this may result in a pointwise divergence free-flow field. However...

During dynamic positioning operations, vessels typically run with an extra generator (spinning reserve) for redundancy purposes such that no single fault will cause the vessel to lose its position or heading. As a result, all other engines on the grid share the load equally to ensure that if a failure were to occur, the remaining healthy...

Advances in sensing and machine learning technologies give rise to personal health coaches that monitor human activities and support healthy behaviour. In this context, wheelchair users can benefit from such technologies as they often suffer from physical ailments due to insufficient or over activity, prolonged improper posture and lack of...

Analyzing the different signaling pathways of cells is key in understanding the basic functions of the cells in all organic systems from algae to humans. Not only do they help solve our questions on how organisms function, they also allow for new cures to be explored. A large variety of these signaling pathways can be influenced by light and can...

Fatigue is an important issue for orthotropic steel deck (OSD) bridges and therefore a design criterium. Cracks will initiate at several locations of the bridge deck. It is likely that a crack at the trough web to deck plate joint at the crossbeam will initiate first. This crack initiates at the weld root and propagates through the deck plate. A...

The extraordinary capability of swarming ant species in route finding and foraging efficiency through trail trail development has been studied for many years. Scientists have been able to capture the behavior of individual ants in control algorithms and used the resulting artificial swarm of ants to solve difficult problems. These problems...

Heat exchangers of any kind are exposed to thermal loading which have the potential to cause severe stresses on the equipment. The magnitude of these loads are far more pronounced when temperature differences occur. These may be during plant start-up or shut-down due to the transient nature of the temperature profiles or even imbalances that...

Due to recent advancements in automated driving systems, drivers are able to withdraw themselves from the control loop of the vehicle in certain driving situations. However, system limits occur relatively frequently, which results in the driver having to take back control. It is argued most currently used take-over quality quantification methods...

Nowadays, a common approach to cope with the inherent uncertainty in innovation is the use of multidisciplinary teams following a Design Thinking (DT) process. However this strategy has its pitfalls, such as the lack of experience with DT or the communication issues underlying a group of people with completely opposed backgrounds. In order to...

Technology is running faster than ever and, to keep up with its speed, businesses have been adopting design practices to turn the wealth of technology into value for customers. Companies are, therefore, renewing their identities and creating new business divisions to offer design capabilities to clients. Likewise, IBM iX is a department within...

Data movement has been long identified as the biggest challenge facing modern computer systems designers. To tackle this challenge, many novel data compression algorithms have been developed. These compression algorithms can be embedded into bandwidth-bound applications to reduce their memory traffic volume. As a result, data decompression, in...

The sustainability of high-rise buildings is always a point of debate and doubt in current research and literature. Several studies have been performed about the zero-energy potential for skyscrapers, however taking into consideration single functions, particularly office and housing buildings. Realistic and modern tall building design however...

The goals of this graduation were to:
- Develop a design tool that helps designers add additional senses to augmented and virtual reality project.
- Test that tool using designers at Mobgen | Accenture Interactive.
- Build one of the resulting concepts as a fully functioning demo.
- Test that demo.
In short, these goals were...

Horizontal Directional Drilling permits the creation of tunnels which pass beneath rivers and canals to allow the passing of services from one side to the other. The final stage of this process involves lining the tunnel with a plastic or steel pipe. The pipe is pulled inside into the borehole using the same drilling rig that was used to bore...

Demand for air traffic is growing worldwide. In order to accommodate this growth, existing infrastructure such as gates should be used more efficiently. One technique to increase gate utilization is by introducing gate pit-stops. Introducing gate pit-stops leads to additional towing movements which can potentially interfere with other traffic on...

This thesis research has focused on developing an analytical solution for low-thrust transfer orbits. Low-thrust propulsion is an attractive option for space manoeuvres and transfers, since it provides a large specific impulse and hence efficient use of propellant. Thus, the propellant mass can be decreased, which brings advantages such as...

Modular exponentiation is the basis needed to perform RSA encryption and decryption. Execution of 4096-bits modular exponentiation using an embedded system requires many arithmetic operations. This work aims to improve the performance of modular exponentiation for an existing FPGA platform containing a soft core RISC-V processor. The solution is...

Reinforcing levees with traditional methods is becoming more difficult in the Netherlands. Often there is a lack of space near the levee or it is desired that the landscape is maintained. Because of this, alternative methods for reinforcing levees are still sought after (CUR-commissie C141, 2007). In this study, the technical feasibility of a...
