As freshwater resources are predicted to become more scarce in the future, desalination will become a more prevalent treatment method. Microbial desalination, defined as the use of microbial processes to remove ions from a saline solution, may have potential as a new desalination method to produce water for domestic, agricultural or industrial...

Complex structural shapes can be produced with additive manufacturing. The geometrical complexity that can be achieved translates into an increase in possible designs. Designing these structures with traditional methods is difficult. A design process with computational optimization will enable engineers to use the geometrical freedom offered by...

An important aspect in increasing our health and safety is the development of new sensors for screening drinking water samples for the presence of microbiological contaminants.The main problem associated with the detection and identification of these microbial contaminants is the long process time. The majority of the time is required fortheir...

Traditionally, a geographical area can be monitored via land based communication systems or spaceborne remote systems for disaster prevention. However both methods have their respective limitations in terms of resolution, accuracy and real time observation. A new suborbital constellation concept offers an independent unit device which will be...

Platforms - defined as businesses with network effects, thereby becoming more valuable the more users they acquire - have become economically important in our current economies. They are ubiquitously present in our daily lives and drive an increasingly share of our economies. However, most platforms cease to exists within the first five years....

Despite the rise of digitalization, and consequently e-commerce, the physical fashion store remains relevant in the retail environment. Still generating almost all sales. However, stores are shifting from a place to buy to a place to be. Where experiences are more important than products. Inevitably, to fulfil customers’ needs and differentiate...

OpenFOAM allowed the author to simulate a large number of scenarios in which the influences of cross-shore profile shape, cobble porosity, cobble diameter and layer thickness on wave overtopping were examined. Four validation runs and six simulations to map the sensitivity are compared with data from two physical experiments conducted in the...

The port of Rotterdam was full and new mooring locations were required to host the largest ships in the world. And if there’s no space to expand on land, why not create land in the sea? That is exactly what The Netherlands did by creating Maasvlakte 2. The construction of Maasvlakte 2 started in 2008 and was officially completed on May 22nd ,...

Permitted conflicts at (vehicle-actuated) signalised intersections are widely researched, though with the main focus on the traffic safety implications, because with permitted conflicts, two or more conflicting streams at a signalised intersection receive green at the same time, and thus meet at the conflict zone, as opposed to protected...

This thesis is concerned with the maximal regularity problem for parabolic boundary value problems with inhomogeneous boundary conditions in the setting of weighted function spaces and related function space theoretic problems.
This in particularly includes weighted $L_{q}$-$L_{p}$-maximal regularity but also weighted $L_{q}$-maximal...

This MSc thesis research has the objective to empirically determine the perceived stochastic nature of the deceleration regimes and to determine the impact it has on infrastructure occupation within the network corridor. This research expands on the data-driven reconstruction model to estimate the speed profiles of realised train runs developed...

Brake squeal is a well know problem in the bicycle industry. Most of the time brake squeal occurs due to wear of the brake components and/or in certain environmental conditions (e.g. rain and dirt). Bicycle brake squeal is often solved by trial and error. Compared to automotive industry, there is not much research done on the fundamental cause...

Currently, the City of Rotterdam is far from achieving their ambitious 2020 goal of a 40% household waste separation rate. In 2017, their separation rate was only 28,4%. Household waste separation is important to enable the recycling of resources. For high-rise buildings, the challenge is the biggest: high-rise buildings produce an average of...

In the light of the global transition away from fossil fuels, a multitude of solutions are implemented in the Netherlands. A transition towards electrification of appliances is part of these solutions. Usage of heat and mobility is increasingly electrified. This trend is expected to increase over the upcoming years. This electrification will...

Indoor positioning has several variants as a result of multiple years of study on the topic. Using WiFi signals as the technology to compute the position of the target device is one of the most extended and researched techniques. WiFi Access Points are extensively deployed in all indoor environments where WiFi indoor localization has a potential...

The appeal of delivering new features faster has led many software projects to change their development processes towards rapid release models. Even though rapid releases are increasingly being adopted in open-source and commercial software, it is not well understood what the effects are of this practice. This thesis presents an exploratory case...

Thermospheric wind measurements obtained from linear non-gravitational accelerations of the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) satellite show discrepancies when compared to ground-based measurements. In this paper the cross-wind is derived from both the linear and the angular accelerations using a newly developed...
