The usage of Internet of Things (IoT) devices has been exponentially increasing and their security is often overlooked. Hackers exploit the vulnerabilities present to perform large scale attacks as well as to obtain privacy-sensitive information. Resource constraints combined with a lack of incentives for manufacturers makes it harder to...

In the last two decades, a lot of attention has been focused on con- tactless radar-based vital signs monitoring (heartbeat and respiration rate) as an emerging and complementary value to our medical care. It is very challenging in real indoor environments to perform concurrent localization and reliable vital signs monitoring of multiple...

In this thesis Bayesian Networks are used to predict European football matches between the years 2008 and 2016. The goal of this research is to see how the structures learned by different Bayesian Network learning algorithms influences the predictions. First the data is explored and modified to be used for Bayesian Networks and secondly the...

In urban planning, one of the common units of measurement for population density is the amount of households per hectare. However, the actual size of the households is seldom considered, neither in 2D nor in 3D. This thesis proposes a method to calculate the average size of the households from existing urban areas based on available open data...

The air-conditioning of commercial buildings accounts for approximately 50% of the total energy consumed in India’s commercial sector. Reducing this load is a key step towards minimizing India's greenhouse gas emissions. One culprit is the routine use of fully glazed façades which are chosen for aesthetics but are neither energy efficient nor...

Growing concern about resource consumption in the construction industry has brought new challenges to the design of façades. Compared to traditional techniques, AM stands out for the possibility of fabricating complex geometries embedding multiple functions. This study explored how the potentials of Fused Deposition Modelling can be used to...

This thesis provides insights into the relation betwen two vital elements within the physical precipitation system: cloud top temperature (CTT) and precipitation. It investigates gauge data from ground stations in Germany and satellite data on CTT, targeted at the same stations in Germany. Cloud and rainfall characteristics
are considered...

In 2020 TU Delft will build a geothermal well producing enough energy to power all its faculties and a number of buildings surrounding the campus. This is done to meet the climate goals the TU set itself: an energy neutral campus by 2040. Geothermal plants are designed to produce for 30 years. After this period, by 2050, the TU has to be energy...

The technology used in health care is one of the fastest developing fields in Precision Engineering. The main focus in this field is on the development of steerable, small dimensioned instruments. Using these, surgeries can be done with minimal damage to the patient, shorter hospital stay and more aesthetical healing.
From the medical field...

The structural reliability of the wooden tower of the Grote of St. BavoChurch in Haarlem has been assessed with the regular methods. In addition to the regular methods, some modern technologies have been used in the structural analysis. The mechanical properties of the timber have been determined with longitudinal vibration tests and visual...

The Twin Dike project is an innovative concept to achieve the required flood safety while being able to preserve valuable areas. A lower, second dike is constructed behind the original existing dike. The original dike is only being strengthened to a minimal extent. The general idea behind this project is to more efficiently use the area near the...

The international maritime sector accounts for about 2% of all global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the main greenhouse gas that causes global warming. Nations meeting at the United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London have proposed an initial strategy for the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships,...

Currently, the design approach in the wind industry is to perform sequential optimization of different disciplines like wake aerodynamics, turbine, support structure, etc., which might fail to capture the interactions between these disciplines, leading to a sub-optimal design. Literature suggests that a Multi-disciplinary Design Analysis and...

Cross-Laminated timber (CLT), and other engineered timber products, are under high demand due to their prefabricated nature and environmental benefits. A key concern surrounding the application of CLT in buildings is its combustible nature and subsequent contribution to a compartment fire. Previous research has shown that exposed CLT, under...

Survival in lung cancer patients relies on correct intraoperative identification and resection of lung nodules. We hypothesize that epidermal growth factor receptor-targeted (EGFR) intraoperative molecular imaging can help improve localization of lung nodules. In a clinical study, we evaluated the use of panitumumab-IRDye800 to determine if...

Velocities derived from X-band radar were compared to depth averaged ADCP measurements in a complex tidal inlet system at Ameland, the Netherlands. Inclusion of depth assimilation and ensemble averaging in radar calculations led to smaller differences between ADCP and radar. The observed differences were clustered and related to water level...

Over the last decades, laser scanners are becoming more and more established for the acquisition of geo-information. Depending on the sensor platform where the laser scanners are mounted, there are MLS, ALS and TLS techniques for both indoor and outdoor environments. The high-quality 3D point clouds produced from laser scanners is an important...
