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...

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...

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...

Semi-autonomous robotic exoskeletons enable paraplegics to walk again. The exoskeleton envelops the paraplegic’s waist, legs and feet. When the user gives the command to start walking, the exoskeleton’s robotic legs start a cyclic walking motion. The user, aided by crutches, follows this fixed cyclic motion, shifting their weight to the stance...

Residential housing has to become more sustainable to meet global energy goals (Silvester et al., 2017), yet the challenge is to integrate the refurbishments that reduce energy with the way people live. The context of this project is the 2ndSKIN project, which refurbishes houses to become zero energy. Zero energy houses are more airtight as a...

Negotiation is the art of resolving conflicts of interests by finding outcomes that all parties agree with. Humans negotiate often, as there are many conflicts of interest in everyday life when working with other humans. Computer scientists have build computer agents that are capable of negotiating with each other in an attempt to outperform or...

The perovskite solar cells (PSCs) comfortably placed close to the top of record power conversion efficiency chart for lab scale solar cells is not sold in the market. Yes, this statement can be a dictionary example for the word 'oxymoron'. Even with improving efficiencies recorded every now and then and with good material properties for a good...

Due to connectivity problems, the attractiveness of public transport is limited. Policymakers aim to increase the modal share of public transport to protect the accessibility, livability, safety, sustainability and efficiency in the cities of the future. Applying Autonomous Mobility on-Demand (AMoD) systems as a feeder service for public...

In cochlear implantation surgery, the appropriate placement of the electrode array into the cochlea is vital. Suboptimal placement of the electrode array may lead to reduced hearing performance and speech recognition after the surgery. Currently, there are methods to confirm the electrode position post-operatively (e.g. through a CT scan), but...

This research addresses a problem at Cargill Multiseed, where a gap exists between the desired performance of the production of sunflower oil and the current. This research is performed to improve the stability of the production process by removing the disturbances. After identifying the restrictions on the input and output of the production...

In this study, the assessment of the KIJK dike follows the new guidelines given by POV-M 2018 using PLAXIS. The macrostability assessment and design of the dike is examined for two cases. In the first case the dike is assessed based on the in-situ conditions (Green dike) whereas in the second case a cantilever sheet pile wall is used in the...

Setting up a humanitarian supply chain comes with diverse difficulties such as major uncertainties, dispersion of information and collaboration between different organisations. Since the environment around a disaster is uncertain and is changing quickly this could affect the performance of the relief provided. Difficulties within the...

The second-generation of supersonic civil transport has to match ambitious targets in terms of noise reduction and efficiency to become economically and environmentally viable. High-fidelity numerical optimization offers a powerful approach to address the complex trade-offs intrinsic to this novel configuration. Past and current research however...

The aircraft leasing industry is still operating like it is 1980, the transfer of boxes filled with paper, a scattered information landscape, opposing interests and almost zero digitisation result in significant lease transition cost. Blockchain might change this. Although other technologies exist, Blockchain can given its characteristics be an...

Block signalling and Automatic Train Protection are two of the main railway safety systems to control the risk of train accidents. The combination of the existing Dutch block signalling system NS’54 and ATP-system ATB-EG is functioning well, but has some drawbacks. The systems have been designed over 60 years ago with proven technology of that...

The purpose of the thesis was to design a deployable thermal shielding baffle for the Deployable Space Telescope to reduce thermal gradients on the optical elements. As a result of a trade-off, the deployment was chosen to be based on an inflatable structure. The baffle consists of aluminium-kapton booms that form a cylindrical shape, and are...

Brain, outside the body, will decay quickly, causing ex vivo studies to be difficult. Having a phantom model has a great beneficial value for numerous reasons. Phantoms are, among others, used in research centres, to validate new equipment, to develop biomechanical models or to test new treatment methods. They are representations of organs or...

This MSc Design for Interaction graduation project aims to explore how design may enhance policymaking. In light of this, an extensive study was conducted at the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. This study entailed an ethnographic study of nine months during which six policymaking cases were studied as well as a four month...
