In the competitive road race-cycling sport, having a frame that is lighter and aerodynamic, grants a competitive advantage. If we look at the market, the lighter and expensive bicycles are made from carbon where the cheaper models are made out of metal-alloys. This makes the consumer biased towards metal-alloy frames, mostly about the weight. To...

Throughout the years, incremental iterative approaches have been shown to be excellent tools in describing the complex behaviour of structures under a wide range of circumstances. However, robustness issues arise for quasi-brittle structures due to the potential lost of convergence during the development of abrupt fracture mechanisms. In order...

This work simulates the impact of horizontal motion on the Symphony wave power device. To that end the existing time domain simulation is expanded with a module that simulates horizontal motion in the 2d plane. This extension is coupled with the existing operational modelling. the extension is based on a mathematical motion model based on rigid...

Asthma is a chronic disease and is characterized by inflammations of the airways. Since there is no cure available yet, asthma treatment is aimed at asthma control, to minimize patients’ symptom experiences and to prevent patients of having exacerbations (lung attacks). A key driver in this, is the extent to which patients adhere to their...

The non-linear relation between Evapotranspiration (ET) and the atmospheric moisture demand in terms of vapor pressure deficit (VPD) has been widely reported. Observations point towards a diverse range of potential drivers; however, without uncovering why the identified factors are found to control diurnal ET-VPD hysteresis. Modelling efforts...

Aircraft component maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) outsourcing is a rather new phenomenon. Nowadays, component support solutions that are flexible with predictable cost are pursued. In other words, the time to restore and cost of MRO are aimed to be minimised. This research project is collaboration with one of the worlds leaders in...

Ortovox, a mountain sports brand, existing for almost 40 years, is undergoing a rapid change. Through substantial growth, the organization has been pushed into a new position. The niche market was given up for a place among the leading brands in the outdoor industry. The new situation results in fundamentally different market requirements and...

The risk allocation in DBFM projects is currently a hot topic, whereby multiple contractors have withdrawn from the procurement of these projects. This research provides a practical guidance in the risk allocation process of DBFM projects, consisting of design principles of literature and lessons learned from practice. The design principles that...

A new approach is needed for redeveloping peri-urban railway stations in the Netherlands, like Amsterdam Lelylaan,to solve a set of pressing issues in their specific context: the monocentric character of many of our cities, the poor quality of public space around peripheral railway stations, and the disconnection between the local and the city...

More and more aquaculture structures are installed in open water and further offshore due to the fact that a variety of conflicts have arisen with coastal water, eco-system, and inhabitants who live nearby. They can additionally benefit from a high energy environment, for example, strong currents and waves could disperse fish farm waste. However...

Through the synthesis of a speculative design project I explore the meditative process of working together with earth forces to create alternative ways of valuing the Arctic and its critic yet fragile environments. Emerging as a response to the changing global trends of climate change, territorial claims and rapid melting of ice in the Arctic...

In the last two decades there has been a steady rise in the gathering and use of 3D geo-information. A common way to store and use 3D data is by using 3D city models. In 3D city models, geo-information can be stored at different levels of detail. CityGML, the most commonly used data model and encoding for 3D city models, uses five levels of...

The goal of this report is to study the way in which female university students (aged 18 to 25) deal with their moods during their menstruation, and to use this information to design a product to help them deal with their negative moods in a healthy way, by using resilience-focused mood-regulation strategies. Literature research and the field...

This thesis provides a theoretical framework for the arise of stop-and-go waves in platoons of Human-driven Vehicles (HVs) on a ring road topology. Possibilities and limitations for traffic control and suppression of such waves via a single Autonomous Vehicle (AV) are considered. Being HVs prone to show string instability, i.e. a type of...

Cryptojacking, a phenomenon also known as drive-by cryptomining, involves stealing computing power from others to be used in illicit cryptomining. While first observed as host-based infections with low activity, the release of an efficient browser-based cryptomining application -- as introduced by Coinhive in 2017 -- has skyrocketed...

This work applies keypoint detection method to solve gate recognition problem. Unlike regular object detection task, gate recognition problem is made difficult by the fact that gate is empty wireframe which means that the object surrounded by gate-edge is not relevant and should not be taken into consideration when detecting. However, regular...

In this thesis, attention is paid to building different Bayesian networks. You can think of aspects such as parameter learning, search procedures and score functions. In addition, a distinction is made between the use of Discrete Bayesian Networks and Gaussian Networks. These models both have different assumptions which are also discussed. Finally...
