Nowadays, a common approach to cope with the inherent uncertainty in innovation is the use of multidisciplinary teams following a Design Thinking (DT) process. However this strategy has its pitfalls, such as the lack of experience with DT or the communication issues underlying a group of people with completely opposed backgrounds. In order to...

The goals of this graduation were to:
- Develop a design tool that helps designers add additional senses to augmented and virtual reality project.
- Test that tool using designers at Mobgen | Accenture Interactive.
- Build one of the resulting concepts as a fully functioning demo.
- Test that demo.
In short, these goals were...

Horizontal Directional Drilling permits the creation of tunnels which pass beneath rivers and canals to allow the passing of services from one side to the other. The final stage of this process involves lining the tunnel with a plastic or steel pipe. The pipe is pulled inside into the borehole using the same drilling rig that was used to bore...

Demand for air traffic is growing worldwide. In order to accommodate this growth, existing infrastructure such as gates should be used more efficiently. One technique to increase gate utilization is by introducing gate pit-stops. Introducing gate pit-stops leads to additional towing movements which can potentially interfere with other traffic on...

This thesis research has focused on developing an analytical solution for low-thrust transfer orbits. Low-thrust propulsion is an attractive option for space manoeuvres and transfers, since it provides a large specific impulse and hence efficient use of propellant. Thus, the propellant mass can be decreased, which brings advantages such as...

Reinforcing levees with traditional methods is becoming more difficult in the Netherlands. Often there is a lack of space near the levee or it is desired that the landscape is maintained. Because of this, alternative methods for reinforcing levees are still sought after (CUR-commissie C141, 2007). In this study, the technical feasibility of a...

At the edge of Vancouver and the Strait of Georgia the Point Grey cliffs experience marine and subaerial erosion. The retreat of the cliffs will eventually result in losing university assets, infrastructure and archaeological treasures. Wave-induced sediment transports are supposed to be the main marine erosion mechanism. This report presents...

The longitudinal characteristics of a multi cranked wing in tandem with a canard were investigated on a 2\% scaled generic, modular wind tunnel model in the 2.85m x 2.85m Open Jet Facility (OJF) at Delft University of Technology. The experimental campaign yielded force, moment and surface oil flow data for a moderate angle of attack range of –5...

The objective of this master thesis is to gain knowledge regarding the dynamic behaviour of The Palmerah Tidal Bridge to hydraulic loads. The Palmerah Tidal Bridge, an enterprise of the construction company BAM, will become future's largest tidal power plant and a floating bridge between two islands in the Flores region, Indonesia. A combination...

Forensic science is the cornerstone of the modern justice system, as it allows us to analyze evidence in order to discover the truth behind a crime scene. As mobile phones became more important to our daily lives they've taken up a bigger part in forensic research as well. These devices contain digital traces telling us the story of our lives....

Modular exponentiation is the basis needed to perform RSA encryption and decryption. Execution of 4096-bit modular exponentiation using an embedded system requires many arithmetic operations. This work aims to improve the performance of modular exponentiation for an existing FPGA platform containing a soft core RISC-V processor. The solution is...

To achieve significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in shipping and enable ship owners to phase out fossil fuels entirely, renewable fuels, such as ammonia, play a crucial role. Ammonia is considered a balanced solution in terms of volumetric energy density and renewable synthetic production cost compared to other renewable fuels....

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...

Our use of pharmaceuticals, pesticides and personal care products leads to an increase of organic micropollutants (OMPs) into the aquatic environment. Conventional wastewater treatment plants are not designed for the removal of OMPs and need to be upgraded to reduce OMP contamination. The adsorption of OMPs to zeolites is proposed as an...
