The quantum bits (qubits) at the core of any quantum computers are so fragile that quantum error correction(QEC) schemes are needed to increase their robustness and enable fault-tolerant quantum algorithms. The surface code is one of the most popular QEC schemes, but it requires the availability of an efficient decoder. While neural networks...

The innovation of underwater exhaust systems on ships increases onboard space, reduces noise emission and allows for zero direct emissions. For defense vessels, stealth is increased as the heat signature reduces due to underwater exhaust. However, there is a disadvantage of dynamic back pressure at the exhaust outlet which deteriorates the...

Universities in the Netherlands are challenged by the changing campus development landscape, as the number of students is outpacing the public funding and the role of universities is shifting towards a city. Universities could function as a city, or even become the city (Heijer and Magdaniel, 2012). The changing role of campuses challenges Delft...

This project began with an interest in the productivity of the individual. How does the definition of productivity change when altering the perspective from a team to the individual? The context of this project is very intentionally limited to the individual workplace of an employee. The opportunities of an understanding of individual working...

Over the past decades, multiple HR constructs have emerged that organizations strived to adopt and integrate into their daily businesses. The most recent development is Employee Experience (EX). EX is essentially a framework for creating engaged employees. Engaged employees have been linked to multiple desirable business outcomes, such as...

Nowadays, growing up is quite different from what it was before. Around the globe the larger part of children engage in inordinate time looking at screens (Bucksch et al., 2016). The smartphone enables children to have more screen time, leading to negative consequences. Nevertheless, children still prefer this type of entertainment due to the...

This project focuses on the integration of User Research in a Qualitative approach into an Agile work environment by conducting an in-house Case Study with Werkspot (Home improvement platform in the Netherlands). Customer expectations have hit an all-time high globally (Salesforce Research 2018) and as such, companies are expected to provide...

Processes occurring in the near-shore region operates on a small spatial and temporal scale. Simulations of these processes have long posed challenges for computational science, and to have accurate representations require a higher resolution. This results in computationally expensive models. This project aimed to investigate the possibility of...

Monopiles are commonly used as foundations for offshore wind turbine generators (WTGs). Due to the rapid growth of the offshore wind energy sector, there is increasing demand for WTGs of larger capacities which evidently leads to demand for monopiles with larger diameter. An industry standard approach for assessing pile lateral response is the p...

Massively reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions is one of the biggest challenges of the 21th century. An important deployment of Renewable Energies (RE) can be a key element in attaining this objective. Setting a (high) carbon price would greatly help as it would send a powerful signal to RE investors that it is time to switch from high...

Research context

Open government data (OGD) publication and use is an important feature of an open government. However, In Dutch municipalities, the presumed created value from municipal OGD fails to live up to its potential, despite various OGD initiatives. Furthermore, there is a lack of knowledge about how value creating mechanisms...

In the past few years, convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have been widely utilized and shown state-of-the-art performances on computer vision tasks. However, CNN based approaches usually require a large amount of storage, run-time memory, as well as computation power in both training and inference time, which are usually used on GPU based...

Currently a new small and automated dairy factory for the onsite production of cheese at farms is under devel-opment. This new factory aims at the production of cheese without any human interaction, based on the (raw) milk from cows who are milked with a milking robot. At the moment only a small test factory exists, in which human interaction is...

This thesis' work aims to evaluate the potential added benefit to spacecraft orbit determination procedures upon using non-conventional measurements for orbit reconstruction. As a spacecraft orbits a celestial body, its ground tracks will naturally cross previous ground tracks at many points. These locations, known as crossover points, yield...

During the advance of a tunnel boring machine (TBM), the torque applied to rotate the cutterhead must overcome the resisting moments acting on it. Hence, one of the major concerns of TBM design is to determine the torque and power requirements of the excavation machine. The first empirical approach for torque estimation was developed in the 80’s...

Adaptive optics are widely used to correct the wavefront distortion imposed by atmospheric turbulence. Focal plane phase retrieval from intensity measurements has advantages due to the ease of implementation, potential broader application, less computations, low cost, high system bandwidth, simplified hardware and less calibration. To cope with...

Offshore wind farms are being developed at locations with moderate ice conditions such as the Baltic Sea, where drifting sea ice upon interacting with offshore structures could lead to the development of a phenomenon known as Ice-induced vibrations (IIV). These vibrations are especially severe when the turbine is idling. Current mitigation...

A cross-domain visual place recognition (VPR) task is proposed in this work, i.e., matching images of the same architectures depicted in different domains. VPR is commonly treated as an image retrieval task, where a query image from an unknown location is matched with relevant instances from geo-tagged gallery database. Different from...

Imagine a neighborhood where almost all of the decisions are left to its inhabitants; a neighborhood where all of the inhabitants cultivate soil to grow their food for their own consumption, in other words prosumerism*. This newly established neighborhood is Oosterwold which is located in the intersection of Dutch cities Almere and Zeewolde....

With growing interest in wet adhesion, animals such as tree frogs are often used as paradigm for creating grippers in wet environments. Tree frogs are capable of attaching to surfaces under several conditions (smooth, rough, dry, wet, and flooded) due to the microstructure of their toe pads. This microstructure consists of pillar-shaped...
