The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has been working on the reduction of emissions in sea shipping. This has been done by stricter regulations over the past years in the form of emission limits. An important element which determines the success of this reduction, is the enforcement of the emission limits. A drawback of the current...

In this thesis, a we have designed and fabricated a Josephson Parametric Amplifier (JPA) using a new double-angle evaporation method without a Dolan bridge. We have found and resolved several issues in the fabrication procedure, but it requires further tuning before being fully functional. We have also simulated the behaviour of a general...

Many movable bridges, built in the 1950’s and 1960’s, reach their end of service life or do not meet future traffic demands. Renovation of those bridge, if possible, is preferred over newly built from an economical point of view. Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) decks prove to be excellent for retrofitting bridge decks compared to traditional...

<b>Introduction: </b>The context of mobility is changing rapidly and new mobility solutions are gaining momentum. Ford is expanding towards an auto and a mobility company and experiments with offering mobility solutions. These experiments should help Ford in discovering emerging opportunities. Traditional product development is not suitable for...

An analytical low-thrust design tool for orbits around Earth has been developed which takes perturbations into account. The Simplified General Perturbations 4 model (SGP4) is combined with Edelbaum’s analytical low-thrust trajectory model. This resulted in the SGP4-LT tool which required an iterative version of SGP4. To obtain this iterative...

Probability calculations are used to determine the possible failure of civil structures which includes bridges. The Eurocode uses a conservative form of these probability calculations and this could have a negative economic impact. Having said this, more advanced probability calculation methods are developed to decrease the negative economic...

The construction of infrastructure in the Netherlands is initiated by the Dutch government and performed in the form of projects. Yearly about €8 billion is spent on infrastructure and in the construction sector 50% of the projects are initiated by public clients. Project management methodologies are the working methods of these public clients....

The effective fracture behavior of a fiber-reinforced composite depends on both the design and manufacturing of the material. During manufacturing several type of defects can occur. One of these defects are micro-voids on the sub-ply level. These can consist of either matrix voids or gaps between the fibers due to the inability of the resin to...

Waterborn transport currently runs on diesel driven Internal Combustion Engines<br/>(ICE). To reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions an option is to shift towards<br/>alternative fuels, like alcohols. This thesis focusses on methanol in ICEs. The<br/>combustion of methanol in ICEs can be done in numerous manners, where fuel<br/>altering,...

Large-scale changes in ocean conditions caused by installing and operating Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) have not been studied in depth. Conversely, the effect on an OTEC plant by oceanographic features are not researched in depth either. The aim of this research is to describe the natural patterns and variability of the ocean currents...

This thesis explores the use of InSAR data for building monitoring. The area of main interest is the city centre of Amsterdam, where quay wall replacements are necessary on a large scale. In Amsterdam, the foundation quality needs to be checked before construction activities nearby are performed, such as a quay wall replacement. Levelling...

At the United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris in 2015, ambitious goals for the worldwide CO2 emissions were set. To achieve these goals, a huge reduction in CO2 emissions must be realized. For the energy market, the current aim is to use renewable electricity instead of fossil fuels. However, there are multiple sectors where...

Normal linear springs have spring characteristics that are often too simplistic for complex applications. For instance in balancing applications, constant force or negative stiffness mechanisms are required. A tape loop, which consists of a two-fold tape spring, is a compliant shell mechanism which can act as a force generator with theoretically...

This thesis describes the process of the development of the MuseumMakers application: a tool for providing constructive feedback by children to museums. The tool only focuses on regular visits, because it is more difficult to collect feedback from younger visitors. This is due to the fact there is no interaction between museum employees and...
