Negotiation is the art of resolving conflicts of interests by finding outcomes that all parties agree with. Humans negotiate often, as there are many conflicts of interest in everyday life when working with other humans. Computer scientists have build computer agents that are capable of negotiating with each other in an attempt to outperform or...

Due to connectivity problems, the attractiveness of public transport is limited. Policymakers aim to increase the modal share of public transport to protect the accessibility, livability, safety, sustainability and efficiency in the cities of the future. Applying Autonomous Mobility on-Demand (AMoD) systems as a feeder service for public...

In cochlear implantation surgery, the appropriate placement of the electrode array into the cochlea is vital. Suboptimal placement of the electrode array may lead to reduced hearing performance and speech recognition after the surgery. Currently, there are methods to confirm the electrode position post-operatively (e.g. through a CT scan), but...

In this study, the assessment of the KIJK dike follows the new guidelines given by POV-M 2018 using PLAXIS. The macrostability assessment and design of the dike is examined for two cases. In the first case the dike is assessed based on the in-situ conditions (Green dike) whereas in the second case a cantilever sheet pile wall is used in the...

Setting up a humanitarian supply chain comes with diverse difficulties such as major uncertainties, dispersion of information and collaboration between different organisations. Since the environment around a disaster is uncertain and is changing quickly this could affect the performance of the relief provided. Difficulties within the...

The second-generation of supersonic civil transport has to match ambitious targets in terms of noise reduction and efficiency to become economically and environmentally viable. High-fidelity numerical optimization offers a powerful approach to address the complex trade-offs intrinsic to this novel configuration. Past and current research however...

The aircraft leasing industry is still operating like it is 1980, the transfer of boxes filled with paper, a scattered information landscape, opposing interests and almost zero digitisation result in significant lease transition cost. Blockchain might change this. Although other technologies exist, Blockchain can given its characteristics be an...

Block signalling and Automatic Train Protection are two of the main railway safety systems to control the risk of train accidents. The combination of the existing Dutch block signalling system NS’54 and ATP-system ATB-EG is functioning well, but has some drawbacks. The systems have been designed over 60 years ago with proven technology of that...

The purpose of the thesis was to design a deployable thermal shielding baffle for the Deployable Space Telescope to reduce thermal gradients on the optical elements. As a result of a trade-off, the deployment was chosen to be based on an inflatable structure. The baffle consists of aluminium-kapton booms that form a cylindrical shape, and are...

Brain, outside the body, will decay quickly, causing ex vivo studies to be difficult. Having a phantom model has a great beneficial value for numerous reasons. Phantoms are, among others, used in research centres, to validate new equipment, to develop biomechanical models or to test new treatment methods. They are representations of organs or...

This MSc Design for Interaction graduation project aims to explore how design may enhance policymaking. In light of this, an extensive study was conducted at the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. This study entailed an ethnographic study of nine months during which six policymaking cases were studied as well as a four month...

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...

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...
