A young boy with type 1 Diabetes Mellitus is supported by a social robot on the road to self-management. The robot has knowledge on the goals that the boy needs to reach, as discussed with his health care professional. The robot also knows the boy’s activity options and preferences. It suggests activities based on this knowledge, but also...

In this PhD thesis, we investigate the microstructural evolution and damage in different steel grades used in railway applications such as switches, crossings and curved tracks, which are the key components in the rail transportation industries around the world. The damage in these components leads to a maintenance cost of billions of Euros per...

Once a semi-submersible is operating at an inconvenient draft (A shallow draft with limited water column above the pontoons), the passing waves over the pontoons can not keep their linear motion and energy will be transferred to higher harmonic wave frequencies. This means the hydrodynamic response will also contain energy at these higher...

It is predicted that in about 100 years most of the earth's fossil fuels will have been depleted. Currently, fossil fuels still make up 80% of the Dutch energy production. Thus, to handle this depletion, the research on renewable energy production and its usage is being stimulated by governments. With the use of fossil fuel energy production, it...

MRI as a medical diagnostics tool is still unavailable to the majority of the developing world. Therefore the design and development of new low-cost hardware are essential. The design of gradient coils corresponding to this hardware is necessary for conventional imaging and reconstruction methods to be used. The target field method, which was...

Metallic pigments are versatile, eye-catching and increasingly utilized materials to create unique effects in plastics. However, these pigments usually show a higher sensitivity to weathering factors like UV light and water in polymer formulations than other pigments. In the particular case of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), this is even more evident...

Energy-based surgical instruments are increasingly used in laparoscopic surgical procedures. For example, the ultrasonic scalpel enables tissue coagulation and -cutting by transferring a mechanical vibration to the tissue. Additionally, real-time sensing is implemented to improve the surgical procedures. Intraoperative ultrasonography is one of...

In dit onderzoek zal antwoord worden gegeven op de vraag: Moet het falen van gemalen mee worden genomen in de watersysteemtoets? In de 6-jaarlijkse toetsing van de waterschappen wordt bepaald of het watersysteem voldoet aan de door de provincie opgestelde eisen voor wateroverlast. Op dit moment wordt er in deze toetsing geen rekening gehouden...

This graduation project is performed for the Dutch Medicines Evaluation Board (MEB) in collaboration with VU University Medical Center (VUmc), Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. In many situations pregnant women need to use a medicine during pregnancy, especially when they are under medical supervision at VUmc due to their (history of a)...

Complex and uncertain societal problems cannot be addressed by technical solutions that rely solely on predictions. Institutions that entirely rely on predictions, repeat the same actions (routine), with little reflection on the impact of these technological solutions upon the socio-technical system. Though routine is beneficial for stability...

Foam flooding can be applied in soil-remediation techniques or for improving oil recovery processes in petroleum reservoirs. There are models which aim to predict the behaviour of foam in presence of oil in bulk and in porous media, however these models are not very reliable. In this work we investigate different ways in which a specific crude...

This thesis elaborates on the role and position of regional design in spatial planning. Building upon the argument that design in this realm aims to improve planning guidance by judging its implications for particular situations, the thesis develops an analytical framework for an enhanced understanding of how design both influences, and is...

In this thesis, the usage of scenarios for the participatory application of ADM is investigated in the context of the Paraná Delta, in Argentina. The focus is two-fold: (1) the research focuses on how a participatory design for ADM can be made, and (2) it focuses on which moment of the framework scenarios should be introduced in the...

Organ-on-chip (OoC) devices are increasingly used for biomedical research and to speed up the process of bringing a medicinal drug from the lab to the market. The technology also addresses ethical issues linked to animal testing as it offers a reduction in animal experiments through its possibility to mimic the environment in the human body....

In dynamic scheduling, some of the information about the scheduling problem is learnt during the execution of the schedule. Because of this, creating a low cost schedule that does not have to be changed is impossible in most cases. When changes are made during the execution, focussing solely on the performance of the schedule may result in very...

Current photovoltaic (PV) industrial chain mainly serves the conventional utility-scale PV power stations. Rigid and opaque silicon-based PV modules domain the market so far. As distributed PV capacities expand, PV modules tend to be integrated with existing infrastructures (mostly, buildings). To adapt with the building environment, innovative...

Simulation models are increasingly used to substantiate long-term planning policy decisions. The communication of model results from modellers to policy-makers has not received much attention by scholars. While, without correct interpretation and correct use of model results the quality of the model itself is irrelevant for the impact of the...

In the Observational Method Ab Initio approach a flexible design and construction plan is established to allow anticipation to observational feedback during the construction phase. This way, the structural design can be optimized to the in-situ conditions which is beneficial from both safety and economic point of view. In the application of...

The term last-mile delivery refers to the final leg of a business-to-customer service, in which a product is shipped from a depot to a final destination point by means of land transportation, such as vans and small trucks. Although they provide a common and easy way to consign products, companies are striving for new transport technologies to...
