Developing intelligent decision making systems in the real world requires planning algorithms which are able to deal with sources of uncertainty and constraints. An example can be found in smart distribution grids, in which planning can be used to decide when electric vehicles charge their batteries, such that the capacity limits of lines are...

Worldwide population growth, water scarcity, and climate change contribute to an urgent need for alternative water sources for irrigation water, industry water, and, in some countries even, drinking water. The implementation of municipal sewage reclamation is an upcoming trend in water treatment. The use of municipal sewage has the advantage of...

Certain industrial wastewaters have posed a big challenge to biological water treatment systems because of their high toxic organic compounds concentration (e.g. phenol) and high salinity. The maximum biomass specific phenol bioconversion rate (PhCR) of a mesophilic (35 °C) anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) under high sodium concentration ...

The wide adoption of composite structures in the aerospace industry asks for reliable numerical methods to account for the effects of damage, among which delamination. Cohesive elements (CEs) are a versatile and physically representative way of reproducing delamination, but, using their standard form, at least 3 elements are required in the...

Multi-Agent Systems, often referred to a network of loosely connected autonomous units, are widely used to model the dynamics of crowds, vehicles, robots and swarms in traffic management, biological environment, distributed control and communication technologies. Recently, the study of multi-agent systems is rapidly growing due to the beneficial...

Implantable Medical Devices (IMDs) could fulfill many different functions in the human body. Batteries have always been the main power source of these devices. Batteries have some drawbacks, the biggest one being the replacement of IMDs with fully discharged batteries. In this thesis a wireless power transfer system, with a receiving power...

Power consumed by any equipment connected to the grid must be regulated to facilitate the reliable and efficient operation of the grid and for smooth equipment operation of other consumers. Power factor is one of the major power quality measurement tool. All the electrical equipment connected to the grid must comply with the power factor limits...

A major cause for voiding dysfunction is the inability to relax the urethral sphincter. KiloHertz Frequency Alternating Current (KHFAC) stimulation can block signals that are travelling through the body; applying this type of stimulation at the pudendal nerve could inhibit the pulses that lead to contraction of the urethral sphincter, and...

Teleoperation is by nature a deprivation of the senses, which can pose a handicap when operating in an unknown and even dynamic en- vironment. Noticing moving obstacles in such a situation can prove to be quite difficult and the UAV runs the risk of colliding with them. Previous work designed a shared control haptic interface based on the...

Operational towing is a taxiing strategy to reduce the fuel consumption during the taxiing phase of a flight, which decreases the cost and environmental impact of taxiing. Currently, no operational electric towing systems are available that are fully electric, independent from the APU and are capable of towing both narrow- and wide-bodied...

Reukema is the biggest non-ferrous trader in the Netherlands. They want to investigate the possibility of sorting aluminium in a robotic system. Aluminium is one of the most used materials worldwide. Demands for aluminium are ever increasing. Recycling scrap is needed to keep up with the demand. An important step in the recycling process is the...

CSD spillage is defined as “any soil that is dislodged above the lowest cutter tip trajectory of a single swing, but is not sucked into the suction pipe”. In addition to higher energy consumption and material wear for delivering the targeted depth, spillage can lead to a variety of environmental issues. As of yet, no analytical model exists in...

This MSc thesis was initiated as part of an interdisciplinary project researching post-disaster coastal reconstruction in the Tohoku region of Japan. On March 11, 2011, a highly destructive earthquake induced tsunami hit the north-eastern part of Honshu island, causing enormous damage to numerous small towns along the coast. Since 2011 various...

Hely has developed Mobility as a Service (MaaS) through multimodal Hubs,
which are offered within closed-user residential areas and made accessible
through an application. This exploratory study aims to assess people’s mobility
behaviour by the usage of Hely in a closed user group. It focused on two
aspects: the indication of (1)...

Wind energy is becoming an important source of energy and reliable forecasts for the production of wind energy are needed to improve its integration in the power grid. The increasing height of wind turbines results in higher layers of the atmosphere being reached, where other phenomena than the surface-based ones can be of importance. One of...

Modern computing systems suffer due to inability of CMOS-device technology and conventional Von-Neumann architectures to support today's ever-increasing demand of high performance, reliability, cost and energy-efficiency. While CMOS device suffers from high static leakage, reduced reliability and manufacturing complexity; conventional computing...

The fourth Industrial Revolution stands for the current trends of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies - which comes with a considerable amount of opportunities as most manufacturers attempt to stay ahead of the competition. One of the possibilities is the addition of FDM printing - one of the types of additive...

A main challenge port engineers had to tackle in recent years is wave penetration inside a harbour, as it determines vessels’ safe sailing and mooring, possibly causes unwanted vessel movements, and unequivocally regulates the execution of port operations. A physical scale model can describe wave penetration in a complete way. However, the...

Variable steering systems have the ability to change the ratio between the steering wheel and the front wheels while driving. These adjustable steering systems have led to an improvement in traffic and road safety and decrease in driver’s workload. A previous study concludes that driver steering behaviour is significantly dependent on vehicle...

A novel combination of analytical techniques for measuring optical properties of glaze and paint as input for computer modelling is used to investigate the influence of the green glaze layer present on top of the black underpainting in the background of Girl with a Pearl Earring. The absorption spectra of paint layers from paint reconstructions...
