Helicopter pilot performance in degraded visual conditions may be improved through sensor fusion and an augmented reality (AR) display. A simulator experiment with 12 participants was done to test the effect of synthetic terrain grid cell size and helicopter heave dynamics on task performance and control behaviour in a terrain-following hill...

This research investigated how traditional foundations of buildings can become circular and thus contribute to a circular economy. The current linear take-make-dispose economy results in waste, exhaustion of finite natural resources and environmental degradation. A circular economy is one way to cope with these trends. This type of economy is...

A young boy with type 1 Diabetes Mellitus is supported by a social robot on the road to self-management. The robot has knowledge on the goals that the boy needs to reach, as discussed with his health care professional. The robot also knows the boy’s activity options and preferences. It suggests activities based on this knowledge, but also...

In this PhD thesis, we investigate the microstructural evolution and damage in different steel grades used in railway applications such as switches, crossings and curved tracks, which are the key components in the rail transportation industries around the world. The damage in these components leads to a maintenance cost of billions of Euros per...

Visualizing runners trajectory from video data is not straightforward because the video data does not contain the explicit information of which runners appear in the video. Only the visual information related to the runner, such as runner’s unique ID (called bib number), is available. To this end, we propose two automatic runner detection...

Stochastic systems have been widely investigated and employed in numerous
applications in different areas such as finance, biology and engineering as
they allow accounting for imprecisions so often faced in every practical tasks. Often that task would require to find the best action sequence in order to optimize the outcome. When the...

Once a semi-submersible is operating at an inconvenient draft (A shallow draft with limited water column above the pontoons), the passing waves over the pontoons can not keep their linear motion and energy will be transferred to higher harmonic wave frequencies. This means the hydrodynamic response will also contain energy at these higher...

It is predicted that in about 100 years most of the earth's fossil fuels will have been depleted. Currently, fossil fuels still make up 80% of the Dutch energy production. Thus, to handle this depletion, the research on renewable energy production and its usage is being stimulated by governments. With the use of fossil fuel energy production, it...

MRI as a medical diagnostics tool is still unavailable to the majority of the developing world. Therefore the design and development of new low-cost hardware are essential. The design of gradient coils corresponding to this hardware is necessary for conventional imaging and reconstruction methods to be used. The target field method, which was...

Metallic pigments are versatile, eye-catching and increasingly utilized materials to create unique effects in plastics. However, these pigments usually show a higher sensitivity to weathering factors like UV light and water in polymer formulations than other pigments. In the particular case of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), this is even more evident...

Energy-based surgical instruments are increasingly used in laparoscopic surgical procedures. For example, the ultrasonic scalpel enables tissue coagulation and -cutting by transferring a mechanical vibration to the tissue. Additionally, real-time sensing is implemented to improve the surgical procedures. Intraoperative ultrasonography is one of...

In dit onderzoek zal antwoord worden gegeven op de vraag: Moet het falen van gemalen mee worden genomen in de watersysteemtoets? In de 6-jaarlijkse toetsing van de waterschappen wordt bepaald of het watersysteem voldoet aan de door de provincie opgestelde eisen voor wateroverlast. Op dit moment wordt er in deze toetsing geen rekening gehouden...

This graduation project is performed for the Dutch Medicines Evaluation Board (MEB) in collaboration with VU University Medical Center (VUmc), Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. In many situations pregnant women need to use a medicine during pregnancy, especially when they are under medical supervision at VUmc due to their (history of a)...

This thesis elaborates on the role and position of regional design in spatial planning. Building upon the argument that design in this realm aims to improve planning guidance by judging its implications for particular situations, the thesis develops an analytical framework for an enhanced understanding of how design both influences, and is...

Foam flooding can be applied in soil-remediation techniques or for improving oil recovery processes in petroleum reservoirs. There are models which aim to predict the behaviour of foam in presence of oil in bulk and in porous media, however these models are not very reliable. In this work we investigate different ways in which a specific crude...

Food, not only exist as a source of energy and nutrition to human beings, but also gives emotional comfort and carries cultural values in people’s daily life. Thus, the consumption of food is no longer related to fulfilling the need of hunger, but also as a way to deal with human emotions, facilitate social bondings, celebrate cultural events...

Since ramjet propulsion eliminates the need for oxidizers, it provides an alternative to classic rocket engines for missiles and projectiles. However, to capture free-stream air, ramjet engines require large supersonic air intakes, which can be an operational nuisance. A possible alternative is to make the supersonic intakes flush with the...

Complex and uncertain societal problems cannot be addressed by technical solutions that rely solely on predictions. Institutions that entirely rely on predictions, repeat the same actions (routine), with little reflection on the impact of these technological solutions upon the socio-technical system. Though routine is beneficial for stability...

Housing projects being developed in the future, must challenge the previous problematic development trends built on efficiency in the past. In order to do so, Jan Bredenoord, Paul Van Lindert and Peer Smets state, within their book ‘Affordable Housing in the Global Urban South: Seeking Sustainable Solutions’, that new communities being developed...
