Current and future space missions require agile and reliable spacecraft capable of trailing and keeping the required attitude. Most of the agile spacecraft missions are near-Earth based but some are placed far away from Earth and its influence. One example of such missions is the Athena mission, which requires the spacecraft to perform fast and...

Software development is more than only implementing the functional code. A developer is also responsible for writing code measuring up to certain standards and conventions. These conventions make sure that the code is of a particular quality that improves readability and eases maintainability. Some of these conventions are checked by automated...

Pilots’ manual flying skills have notably reduced due to the increase in flight deck automation over the last decades. This has resulted in a growing concern that today pilots lack the skills to safely and successfully prevent or recover from unexpected aircraft upset events or to take over controls after a sudden transition to manual flying....

A new photoplethysmography-based device called the Multiphotodiode Array (MPA) was validated to successfully measure the PWV in the vasculature of the distal phalanx of healthy subjects. It comprises an array of photodiodes and an array of opposing LEDs to detect blood volume changes due to the passing pressure pulse wave in the vasculature of...

In recent years a return of supersonic transportation has begun with companies looking to launch supersonic aircraft in the coming decade. However, supersonic environmental regulations are still based on Concorde. This thesis looks to predict the performance of new supersonic aircraft for ICAO through a low-fidelity program with a set of climate...

When propellers are operating near the free surface,  phenomenon called ventilation might occur. Due to insufficient immersion and high thrust loading, the propeller draws air, resulting in a reduced thrust. Reduced thrust may have consequences such as loss of propulsive power, control and steerability, and may therefore be...

This thesis studies the asset allocation of a DC pension investor over a long time horizon. Investors allocate their portfolio wealth between two assets: a return portfolio and a matching portfolio. Investors can adjust their allocation once a year. Several dynamic investment strategies that improve investment results compared to fixed...

The diversity of offshore structures is increasing nowadays, as more and more offshore structures are floating. To study the opportunity for Ampelmann to expand to the floating market it is necessary to see if working with floating structures requires a new way of operating. A potential market for Ampelmann is transferring maintenance personnel...

Peat is formed by biochemical processes and the accumulation of the soil depends on the aerobic and anaerobic conditions. The soil covers five to eight percent of the land surface of the earth. For this thesis a peat coming from a site called Markermeeer, which is a lake between the provinces Noord-Holland and Flevoland in the Netherlands, is...

Recent advances on the design of autonomous mobile agents have motivated the use of the latter in persistent surveillance tasks with applications in agriculture, information gathering and search and rescue missions. In these tasks the goal is to design agents’ paths so as every point in the area of interest is covered more than once. In...

The research in this master graduation focuses on Nowa Huta, a neighborhood located in the Krakow Metropolitan Area (Poland). Nowa Huta was designed and build as a socialist ideal city in the socialist era, complete with its own steel plant where the majority of the inhabitants worked. The Lenin steel factory provided work, but it also financed...

Nowadays the city of São Paulo has to deal with a lot of traffic jams. Extending the road network is no option and the public transport network cannot keep up with the capacity either. A solution must be found in another type of transport: cycling. The current bicycle infrastructure is not sufficient in terms of connectivity. In this research, a...

The internal model is an important piece of the control system of an autonomous driving vehicle. In order for the model to deliver accurate predictions, a valid model structure and well chosen parameters are needed. Model parameters can be highly fluctuating or complex to predict, especially when looking into tyre ground surface interaction...

This report presents the design of a 2-DOF compliant mechanism, capable of describing a closed spatial surface. The mechanism is designed with the intended application as leg in an omnidirectional walking machine. Therefore, a conceptual design of a way of coupling a multitude of these mechanisms is also presented. By means of a kinematic...

’De Watersnood van 1953’, the largest Dutch flood in recent history, caused the death of 1795 people in the Netherlands directly from the flood conditions, while in the UK, 315 were recorded. Most of them were among those whose residence collapsed due to high water depth, quick rise rate of the water or strong flow velocity. Based on historical...

The current construction market is segregated, under-performs and becomes more complex. Often leaving the client helpless when projects go wrong. Consortia arise to handle the complexity and segregation, while improved collaboration between contractors can raise performance, but do consortia solve these problems? This research examines whether...

During a digital fraud investigation the search for relevant information in mailboxes of custodians is like finding a needle in a haystack. This time consuming task can, on various levels, be improved and made more efficient. Technology Assisted Review (TAR) is already one of the available machine learning algorithms that helps speeding up the...

Implant associated infections are one of the main reasons for implant failure in total joint arthroplasty. The cause is due to bacteria that adhere to surfaces forming a biofilm. Biofilm formation is an irreversible situation which requires excessive hospitalization and medical treatment with antibiotics, however bacteria have been proven highly...

Within this thesis influence of thrust vectoring for VAWTs, controlling the magnitude and direction of the thrust vector with respect to the freestream, is investigated through active pitch actuation. The H-type Darrieus VAWT is modelled in 2D through the actuator cylinder model with the Mod-Lin correction included. The evaluations are performed...
