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...

This thesis shows the process and results of a graduation project for the Effenaar, Eindhoven. The music industry has always been capricious. However, the densely dispersed Dutch pop venue landscape is being faced with a contemporary challenge. A lot of Dutch pop venues are balancing between the public and private sector, have a big heritage...

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 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...
