Jumbo Maritime is a shipping company active in the heavy lifting market. Jumbo uses stabilisers to enlarge the stability of the ship during lifting. By using stabilisers Jumbo can perform heavy lifts with a relative small ship, this is one of the major advantages. Downside of using stabilisers is that the installation and de-installation is a...

When lifting operations are performed by a heavy lifting vessel, the motions of the vessel and cargo are predicted by conventional six degrees of freedom calculations. It is assumed that the cargo is attached to the crane top in order to decrease the stability of the vessel and perform accurate calculations. While these conventional calculations...

Energy storage systems (ESS) are expected to be one of the main pillars for a future renewable based power system. Since all sectors are electrifying and variable renewable energy (VRE) is being deployed more quickly than transmission and distribution operators are able to connect them to the electricity grid. Flexible capacity on multiple...

Ballistic capture is a transfer method which was first applied in 1990. It allows a spacecraft to approach a target celestial body and enter a (temporary) orbit around it without requiring manoeuvres in between. Ballistic capture is a promising concept, as it is expected to be safer, cheaper, and more flexible in terms of launch windows than a...

During the past decade, Implantable biomedical devices have emerged as an efficient treatment for neurological disorders. Among them, low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU) has recently gained interest due to its focusing ability, depth of penetration and reversible effects. Although the exact biophysical mechanism that leads to the interaction...

Graphene is an attractive material to be used for pressure sensors due to its thinness, electrical conductivity, and potential high gauge factor. One of the issues with processing graphene is the scalability, which is largely limited by the transfer process that is required for graphene deposited by chemical vapour deposition (CVD). In this work...

The 21st century is increasingly concerned with environmental and sociological problems caused by ineffcient use of resources. As more people migrates towards cities, a rapid increase in motorization rates and the number of private vehicles will further aggravate the already apparent urban challenges. Factors such as increased congestion,...

Compressive membrane action is a phenomenon commonly found in reinforced concrete structures after significant cracking and deformation have taken place. In this thesis report, the potential benefit of CMA in immersed tubes subjected to fires is quantified through a finite element study. Furthermore, sensitivity studies are conducted in order to...

The goal of this thesis is to determine the effects of integrating blue hydrogen into the Dutch energy system. A new framework is presented to assess several different designs for the business model, infrastructure, and market. This framework is applied to the case of the H-vision project. Three business models are tested against three energy...

Hybrid electric propulsion is a promising new technology to reduce emissions and fuel consumption of an aircraft. In this study a parallel hybrid electric configuration is considered. Since electric motors supply power in the most demanding take-off and climb phases to achieve the required thrust, the turbofan can be redesigned.<br/><br/>It was...

Worldwide 8-16% of the people are affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD). If the CKD is undetected, people have the risk to develop progressive loss of kidney function, which can lead to kidney failure. People with kidney failure will need dialysis to take over the kidney function. For the hemodialysis a vascular access is needed, currently...

The volume and sophistication of data exfiltration attacks over networks have significantly increased in the last decade. This has resulted in the need for defense mechanisms, to effectively detect both known and unknown data exfiltration scenarios over the network. While methods such as DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) are commonly used to detect...
