An experimental investigation on shock-shock interactions has been conducted with the aim of studying the transition between Regular (RI) and Mach interactions (MI) under the condition of variable inflow Mach number. The RI contains only oblique shocks while the MI has a quasi-normal shock segment, known as the Mach stem. MI configurations...

Haptic feedback on the side stick has been used in previous research on assisting pilots in recognising flight envelope limits. Pilots indicated, however, that it was not always clear what the haptics were trying to tell them, leading to a lower system acceptance. This paper describes the design and evaluation of a visual display in...

The starting point of this graduation project is noises that nurses experience in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit). There is a defined medical symptom which is called “alarm fatigue” that refers to numb auditory senses, stress, low job satisfaction as a result of being exposed to excessive noise for the extended period, and it often leads to low...

As all industries move towards sustainable fuels to reduce emissions, aircraft industry is still at its nascent stages. The adoption of clean energy sources has been slow particularly due to low energy density of commercially available batteries, and high volumetric density of hydrogen as a fuel. Electric aircrafts have been demonstrated but...

The efforts to embed a Circular Economy (CE) within every organization in the Netherlands have taken both, scholars and practitioners, to look into the design of Circular Business Models (CBMs) that allow to make this transition possible; one of the Dutch industries taking this approach is the real estate development sector. Different business...

The development of solar photovoltaic systems has seen a rapid increase in the recent years propelled by mass manufacturing and constantly declining costs of PV modules. In some regions, however, the levelized cost of energy is still rather high, posing some challenges for this technology to take a leading roll in the energy mix. In order to...

The construction industry has always been an important driver of the economy. An important part of the projects in this industry is commissioned by public entities. However, recently a trend can be observed in which the procurement process fails more often than before. Due to the current times of economic expansion in the Netherlands contractors...

The off-side rule is the most complicated rule in soccer. Today, off-sides are determined with the help of referees running on the sides of the field or with the help of cameras. However, for lower league games the installation of a camera based system is very expensive.

This work proposes a sensor based system that can be worn by...

Flotsam lines may arise on coastal dikes after a storm surge. These lines are generated when material due to debris accumulation on the foreshore has been transported onto the dike surface by wave run-up. Hydraulic engineers who used flotsam line measurements, interpreted a flotsam line as a line which is marking the highest wave run-up. In the...

In this dissertation, we analyse the safe use of medical technology, considering the training of users, technical demands of used devices and instruments, and the surgical workflow. As each of these elements will vary depending on the experience of the user, the equipment used, and variations in the environment; a unique set of parameters for...

Majorana bound states (MBSs) are novel particles predicted to be created when superconductor/semiconductor hybrid structures with strong spin-orbit coupling are subjected to strong magnetic fields. Expected to exhibit non-Abelian exchange statistics, they could form the basis of a new kind of quantum computer that is inherently protected from...

Recent innovations in the off-shore wind industry have lead to bigger wind turbines and taller support structures. These towers can suffer from vortex-induced vibrations (VIV). The present work couples the open-source CFD solver OpenFOAM with a structural solver to investigate these fluid-structure interactions (FSI) effects in more detail. 2D...

In epoxy-bitumen systems, temperature contributes to the development of physiochemical and mechanical characteristics during curing (chemical hardening) and at the long-term service (oxidative aging) of pavement structures. Hardening (i.e., chemical or oxidative controlled) is a complex phenomenon in epoxy-modified binders and the in-depth...

During the development for railway, ballasted track is dominant structure and makes up more than 95% of the whole track modes. However, its shortage is considerable in high speed railway and heavy haul system. Regarding to the ballasted railway track's defects as particle breakage, settlement, and geometry irregularity which lead to enormous...

The transformation of the residential heating system of Amsterdam into a sustainable heating system that no longer makes use of natural gas in 2050, of which 230.000 households will be heated with district heating, demands an exploration of sustainable local heat sources to use for district heating in Amsterdam. This aligns with the fundamentals...

This paper reviews the social and professional embeddedness of planning, describes its legal framework, and reviews territorial governance and everyday planning transactions. The findings suggest that the social embeddedness of planning is constrained by Peru’s persistent inequality challenges. Its planning approach has hardly evolved from...

The Netherlands is often depicted as a battleground, with the Dutch in a constant struggle against the water that surrounds them. This project examines this tradition in the context of the Wadden Sea and the island of Schiermonnikoog, where this battle between the land and the sea is at its most extreme.

This project traces the myth of ...

Background: Patients who suffer from acetabular bone defects are often subjected to a decreased mobility and a loss of independence. To treat these bone defects, standard hemispherical acetabular implants offer in most cases the solution. However, when these defects are large, a custom triflange acetabular implant is needed. Although this type...
