Recent decades have seen the range of applications for aircraft expand to niches like weather monitoring, reconnaissance and satellite launch (Air Launch to Orbit, ALO). The requirements for such roles necessitate unconventional features like twin fuselages (in case of ALO mother ships) and very high aspect ratio wings (for long endurance...

One of the main bottlenecks in air transport operations is the runway capacity at airports. As such, managing aircraft arrivals and departures is of great importance to ensure smooth and efficient airport operations. The research objective of this article is to model the airport departure process at Vienna Airport under the influence of...

Present stroke rehabilitation devices for the arm are often difficult to use by the patient himself and cannot be used at home. A compliant shell mechanism could overcome the shortcomings of the current available devices. By the use of monolithic shell mechanisms a simple to use device can be designed, which can be made wearable. It would make...

Existing scoliosis braces preclude spinal movement for activities of daily living, which reduces the willingness to wear the brace and treatment success. This work develops a scoliosis brace that meets corrective requirements while retaining patient mobility.
The primary compliance vector (PCV) captures the predominant kinematic degree of...

Meteors have been observed by accident from geostationary orbit (GEO). It is of interest for surveillance, meteor science and the updating of empirical models to know what instruments are needed on a GEO satellite to observe meteors and re-entering capsules in Earth ‘s atmosphere. A re-entry simulation code is written to fill the gap of missing...

The Flight-to-Gate Assignment Problem (FGAP) covers the optimal assignment of flights, or rather the aircraft serving these flights, to the available aircraft stands. Existing FGAP models in literature do not consider airside and landside processes simultaneously. We propose a FGAP model with three specifications, where only airside constraints...

In a world with an ever-increasing overflow of information, what are we supposed to believe? Even credible sources are distrusted or no attention is paid to their communications at all. The RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) is looking for new ways to communicate their findings in such a way that people do not only...

Covalent reversible chemistries give rise to polymers with reasonable mechanical properties yet require external stimuli to heal. Oppositely, supramolecular systems can heal autonomously, but their properties are still far away from most of those set by application requirements. Both downsides need to be addressed before intrinsic healing...

When one thinks about Ireland, its landscape comes immediately to mind. The variety seen in vegetation, topography, colors and textures, combined with the low demographic density verified in the majority of its territory, consolidates the image of the island as a rich collection of natural scenarios. However, beyond its beauty, the same...

In the field of computational neuroscience, complex mathematical models are used to replicate brain behavior with the goal of understanding the biological processes involved. The simulation of such models are computationally expensive and therefore, in recent years, high-performance computing systems have been identified as a possible solution...

AGVs have seen an upward trend in development over the last 60 years. The technology has developed from mechanical bumpers and guided wire navigation to contactless sensors and free navigation technique in the current age. Further, the control on AGVs has moved from central control system to local intelligence which opens up various...

Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) is an innovative concept which has the potential to deliver a convenient mobility option to travellers. It provides the supply of multi-modal and demand-driven mobility services which includes custom made travel options with real-time information. This all is shared with the use of a digital platform to the customer....

After surpassing human performance in the fields of Computer Vision, Speech Recognition and NLP, deep learning has been gaining scientific ground in IR. In spite of the sheer amount of publications that have proposed so-called neural IR approaches over the past decade, the field has not achieved the kind of progress seen in related fields. Over...

This Ph.D. dissertation describes the theory and realization of wide-bandwidth magnetic sensors for current measurements which breach the conventional offset and noise constraints in CMOS processes. These are achieved by several circuit-level and system-level innovations, including the use of three orthogonal ripple reduction loops (RRLs) in...

Current energy concerns like growing energy demand, the desire for a clean environment and energy conservation started thrusting the society towards distributed renewable electricity generation (DG) technologies. These technologies such as PV solar, Fuel Cells (FC) and urban wind produce Direct Current (DC). The electronic equipment such as...

The Innovative Effector Concept (ICE) aircraft model is a high performance aircraft. The aircraft is over-actuated and a new control allocation algorithm has been designed previously to control this aircraft effectively: Incremental Nonlinear Control Allocation (INCA). It is unknown to what degree effector failures will affect the aircraft...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between the surface and deep layers to generate electricity. The temperatures in the ocean hardly vary between day and night or between the seasons, which ensures a very constant energy production with OTEC. In order for OTEC to compete with the current forms of energy...
