University students are expected to study on their own for large amounts of time. However a lot of these hours are not spent effectively by students. Eventually students who have trouble with self-studying in an effective manner may end up failing courses because of this. When students realise they have a (self-study) problem they can seek aid...

Identify the barriers within Arcadis by evaluating internal approaches, knowledge and differences in domains to increase the action perspective in the approach of climate-proof cities. The data was collected by performing 24 interviews and this was analysed and structured using the PRIMO-chain model.

Stratiform precipitation is one of the most important precipitation systems in the mid-latitudes. To gain understanding of the melting layer, which is part of a stratiform precipitating system, an algorithm which is able to select melting layer data from large datasets is required. The goal of this thesis work is to create and deliver a program...

Recent advances in sensor technology have lead to increased resolution of novel sensors, while tracking applications where distance between sensors and objects of interest is very small have gained research interest recently. In these cases, it is possible that multiple sensor detections are generated by each object of interest. Extended Object...

This work gives a method which can use both motion and shape information for drinking action detection. Drinking action is differ from the other gestures. A complete drinking action duration could be divided into 3 different stages. Motion-based features and shape-based features are complement with each other in each stage. By using this feature...

Radiotherapy is an important treatment type for patients with cancer. An advantage of state of the art proton therapy with respect to traditional photon therapy is the spatial energy deposition of protons, which is characterized by the Bragg peak. Due to this particular course of energy deposition, the tumor can be irradiated more precisely and...

This thesis studies single events (SE) in an SRAM from the identical satellites Sentinel 2A and 2B, in order to find links between SE, space weather, satellite operation and device properties from time and position of event occurrence. A study of theory on single event rate prediction and space radiation environments lies the foundation for the...

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...

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...

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...

An accurate representation of water retention curves is important for various reasons. Traditional models already exist for the representation of these curves, with one of them being the van Genuchten model. When soil parameters are available, the van Genuchten model can be used to plot water retention curves. However, when these soil parameters...

The world’s climate is changing. In the Netherlands one of the consequences is that water boards and municipalities are preparing for an increase in extreme precipitation. To evaluate the consequences in case of extreme precipitation all Dutch municipalities and water boards have to perform a stress test. In these stress tests the response of...

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...

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...
