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...

Music consumption has skyrocketed in the past few years with advancements in internet and streaming technologies. This has resulted in the rapid development of the inter-disciplinary field of Music Information Retrieval (MIR), which develops automatic methods to efficiently and effectively access the wealth of musical content. In general,...

Due to the global climate change there is a increasing demand for transportation on renewable fuels. An increasing trend in electric propulsion can already be seen in the automotive industry and this is now also gaining popularity in the maritime sector. Due to limited capacity if the onboard battery, especially electric ferries are becoming...

Here we show that deciding whether two rooted binary phylogenetic trees on the same set of taxa permit a cherry-picking sequence, a special type of elimination order on the taxa, is NP-complete. This improves on an earlier result which proved hardness for eight or more trees. Via a known equivalence between cherry-picking sequences and...

Combined wave-current flow is defined as flow in which waves and currents are present together. One of its occurrences in nature is at a tidal inlet system, where incoming waves meet either a current in the same (following) or opposite (opposing) direction. This type of flow is different when compared to wave- or current-only flows. As a result,...

This research has shed light on the capability of the HASP model in reproducing the dilatant behaviour of OC clays in drained and undrained conditions. The model is formulated by employing a combined hardening rule and uses the void ratio as a state variable while maintaining the simplicity of the MCC model. However, a sensitivity analysis...

The ship propulsion system model is simulated by MATLAB/Simulink initially and is required to reproduce the simulation results in python. This master graduation project deals with the reproducibility of ship propulsion system model by different computer simulation tools. The MATLAB/Simulink model will be provided by Maritime Technology (MT)...

Rock cutting is a challenging process. Heavy equipment, large cutting forces, high wear rates and large amounts of required energy are common challenges when cutting rock. Traditionally, rock cutting is based on a linear motion of the cutting tool. However, a significant improvement on the cutting performance is expected when using non-linear...

Hydro-elasticity is important in the evaluation of a category of wave energy converters (WEC). In this paper, the hydro-elastic response of a bulge wave energy converter is examined by the implementation of a two-dimensional potential theory. The numerical implementation of the Frank Close-Fit method (FCFM) defines hydrodynamic coefficients and...

Ultrasound is a fast, harmless, cheap and portable imaging modality. In transcranial sonography (TCS) the applications include diagnosis of brain related diseases or tracking of electrodes in deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedures. However, the skull has strong aberration effects on ultrasound and sets limits to the technology. The speed of...

In the new space paradigm, CubeSats have become the go-to platform for researchers and industry devel- opers across the world for gaining access to space. As CubeSat technologies are maturing, many developers are planning intricate and utilitarian missions for CubeSats. Many of these concepts involve formation fly- ing or swarm dynamics, debris...

This reports the graduation project aimed to investigate the occurrence of rebellious play through the X-eo prototype. Rebellious behaviour is often referred to as going against the norm and derives its value from breaking rules. Previous academic research (Gielen & Van Leeuwen, 2013), on the subject, has provided suggestions and techniques...

Including vegetation in flood defense systems has the potential to be a more cost-effective solution than conventional dike reinforcement measures, as vegetation contains wave damping properties. However, more insight is required on the complex physical processes due to wave-vegetation interaction in order to predict the amount of wave damping....
