Regular maintainance dredging is a large expense to the Port of Rotterdam, therefore the installation of sediment traps is considered. By increasing the bathymetry locally, an increase of local accumulation is expected and a decrease deeper in the harbour basin. This thesis describes the functioning of sediment traps in a stratified tidally...

Analog-to-digital converters are important blocks in any electronic system which act as a bridge between analog signals and digital processors. The conventional SAR ADC employs a binary search algorithm and has emerged as the most suitable solution for low-power applications, due to its excellent power efficiency. The proposed ADC architecture...

Smart temperature sensors can be used for the temperature compensation of micro-electromechanical (MEMS) frequency references. From the different types of CMOS temperature sensors, resistor-based sensors are currently the most energy-efficient. However, compared with bipolar transistor (BJT)-based temperature sensors, resistors suffer from...

Daytime radiative cooling (DRC) is a very novel passive cooling method for buildings that utilises the recent technological advance in wavelength selective-emittance material research and takes advantage of a transparency window that exists in the atmosphere between 8 and 13 μm. Application of DRC in locations where warm weather prevails for...

As the use of Networked Control Systems increases, the need for control methods with more efficient network usage also grows. These methods require a more sophisticated way of pre- dicting their traffic, and an approach for this is using a formal modelling approach using Timed Automata. Timed Automata have been used for over 25 years for several...

In this thesis the beta log-gas probability density function is discussed. It is shown that there is a strong link between this density function and Jacobi matrices. A change of variables exercise shows that the distribution of eigenvalues is exactly like the quadratic beta log-gas. The change of variables gives the normalization constant for...

Lately structural safety is an often discussed subject in The Netherlands. Recent collapses have made people question if our buildings are actually safe enough. Research shows that the individual probability of death due to structural failure is below the limit of 10-5 per year. However, it is unknown if every single building is safe enough as...

The report describes the graduation project done for Lifesafety Products B.V., otherwise known as Lifehammer. The company has a problem with the attachment systems of their emergency hammers. These hammers are used to break car glass in emergencies. The most commonly known use case in the Netherlands is when one ends up trapped in a car...

In the energy transition the expansion of the amount of renewable energy resources requires new methods for the design of energy systems. To deal with intermittent energy production, different energy technologies and solutions are in development. Hydrogen is a main candidate for this goal. Using Fuel Cell or Battery Electric Vehicles as flexible...

There is a growing demand for renewable sources of energy of which wave energy conversion is one. The Ocean Falls is an oscillating water column (OWC) system invented by BAM Infraconsult b.v. This system differs from conventional OWC systems since it includes a connection tube and an adjustable back wall. The OWC system is a resonance system for...

Museums are often believed to be aimed at adults, yet museums specifically aimed at children are becoming more common, and most museums attempt to cater not only to adults, but to their younger visitors as well. Museum Prinsenhof Delft is one such museum. This report presents the process of creating a new experience aimed at families, who come...

When developers enter a project, often a vast amount of existing code exists for them to understand. Improving the understandability of the code should help them in getting up to speed. This study researches two methods that could improve the understandability of the code for newcomers: Refactoring the code to adhere to Clean Code guidelines and...

Multi-material compliant mechanisms have shown the potential to be utilized in the upper-limb prosthesis. The mechanisms consist of flexural and rigid parts, where the flexural components can serve as flexible joints between rigid bodies in the device (e.g., finger and finger segments). This configuration is feasible to be fabricated using a...

Offshore wind farms are moving to deeper waters, implying that larger substructures will need to be installed. The monopile is the leading substructure nowadays and this structure could be promising for use in deeper waters as well. Generally, jack-up vessels are used for the installation of the substructures and turbines. However, the jacking...

The objective of this research is to identify the passive response of the rider’s body to translational and rotational random perturbations. A custom made bicycle mock-up equipped with a system of sensors has been developed, capable of measuring the linear accelerations, angular velocity and the rider’s force responses in all translational axes...

Long before humans will completely trust fully automated vehicles, partial and conditional automation where the human driver is still in the loop will dominate the era of autonomous vehicles. However, more than 90% of traffic accidents are due to human errors, of which approximately half appear to be due to perceptual errors. Especially at busy...
