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...

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...

In this thesis, the design and implementation of an improved current controller for grid-tied converters is discussed. Using this improved current controller, a power factor correction test platform achieves practically zero AC and DC error in steady-state. The power factor corrector accomplishes this by utilizing the parallel combination of a...

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...

At the edge of Vancouver and the Strait of Georgia the Point Grey cliffs experience marine and subaerial erosion. The retreat of the cliffs will eventually result in losing university assets, infrastructure and archaeological treasures. Wave-induced sediment transports are supposed to be the main marine erosion mechanism. This report presents...

The longitudinal characteristics of a multi cranked wing in tandem with a canard were investigated on a 2\% scaled generic, modular wind tunnel model in the 2.85m x 2.85m Open Jet Facility (OJF) at Delft University of Technology. The experimental campaign yielded force, moment and surface oil flow data for a moderate angle of attack range of –5...
