Door de steeds strengere milieuwetgeving wordt het voor ontwerpers van aandrijflijnen in voertuigen steeds belangijker cm een aandrijflijn te ontwerpen met het oog op een laag energieverbruik en een minimale hoeveelheid emissies. Hierdoor worden de toegepaste componenten en de opbouw van aandrijflijnen steeds complexer. Door gebruik te maken van...

Collaboration between the Global South and Global North is inevitable. It can work. It can be emphatic, effective, and more equal. However, there is a deeply embedded history of colonialism involving power asymmetries that give rise to the dismissal of value systems, which pervert this type of collaboration from being truly realised. Hence,...

Acidizing is a widely used technique for intensification of geothermal wells. At certain conditions, acid injection results in a formation of highly conductive channels, e.g. wormholes. The associated rock matrix dissolution is highly nonlinear and may influence the fluid flow as well as rock properties. Wormhole patterns and breakthrough time...

To meet the ambitious renewable energy target of 170 GW, India is eyeing its vast solar energy potential. To tap this potential, it needs large swaths of land and massive infrastructure development. Research in the western countries has shown that renewable energy infrastructure developments has led to instances of injustices at local level. In...

Nowadays, Dopple's wireless earphones have touch buttons as a user inter-<br/>face, however these take in quite some physical space. Since the earphones<br/>are becoming smaller over the years, there is a need for a new type of touch-<br/>less user interface, that is smaller. In order to create that new user interface,<br/>research is done on...

Due to increasing cost pressure, disturbances from customs and an opportunity seen in reducing costs by increasing the procurement and construction in the Far East, Damen Shipyards Gorinchem is changing the requirements for its supply chain. Changes to the supply chain however not only inflicts a large number of stakeholders, but the cost...

In order to reduce aircraft emissions during on-ground operations, electric taxiing systems (ETS) have been intensively researched to take over or assist in part of the taxiing phase of a flight. One of these ETS is the TaxiBot, deployed by Smart Airport Systems (SAS). While a number of papers have been researching this vehicle routing problem ...

In this thesis we investigate the possibilities for applying Koopman methods for reachability analysis. Reachability analysis is a verification process used to determine that a dynamical system starting in an initial set X0 cannot reach a certain set of dangerous states D within a time interval [0,T]. Koopman methods seem promising, because they...

Introduction Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging is a relatively novel development in colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) surgery which has proven to be an added value for the detection of new lesions and surgical guidance. However, new possibilities of NIRF imaging in CRLM surgery are yet to be explored. The fluorescent rim of indocyanine...

The commercialization of the space industry has led to a reduction in size and weight of satellites and launching vehicles, which have effectively reduced the cost of space services. The costs of launching payloads to space can be significantly reduced when the launching vehicles are reusable. The two-stage-to-orbit system with a winged,...

To meet energy demand towards a low-carbon future, the global market demand is growing for metals such as cobalt and nickel which are major elements in batteries. Polymetallic nodules, which are formed on abyssal plains at depths ranging from 4 to 6 kilometres and are distributed in high abundance on the top of the seabed, contains several times...

Optical microscopes are fundamentally limited to a resolution of several hundreds of nanometers by the diffraction of light. Single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) circumvents this limit by sparsely exciting fluorescent molecules at different time instances. Single molecules can subsequently be localized with improved precision over the...

One of the key business models Gorenje andASKO have researched upon is a service model of circular washing machine under a pay per use (PPU) business model. PPU business models are currently mostly used within shared washing rooms, which is also the segment in which ASKO will enter withtheir first circular washing machines. However, even though...

The objective of the thesis was to evaluate the cost reductions and tower design when production costs are included in the design process of an offshore wind turbine tower. First, a tower cost model had to be developed. Then, based on the findings, a cost optimization model was built with the tower design software from Siemens Gamesa Renewable...

In this report, a model is presented that automates and optimizes the loading processes for the transport of steel structures at the company of ASK Romein. This transport can be captured in two main loading processes: the loading division, which consists of allocating items to different trailers, and the loading sequence, which considers placing...

Agent-based distributed planning and coordination has shown promising results in controlling operations in complex systems such as those present at airports. Distributed planning differs from centralised approaches because it is performed by several agents, which coordinate plans with each other in order to meet a global objective. In this...

Offshore Wind Farms (OWFs) have developed into an integral part of the European energy transition in the fight against climate change. The North Sea, with its excellent wind conditions and soil characteristics, as well as ports and industrial energy consumers nearby, has become the epicenter of offshore wind development. The coming years will...

In this thesis, I introduce a novel model identification approach to time series forecasting. For linear stationary processes, such as AR processes, the direction of time is independent of the model parameters. By combining theoretical principles of time-reversibility in time series with conventional modeling approaches such as information...

Solving the world food problem, health, and sustainability issues have become principal objectives of modern biotechnology. With the help of genetic engineering, the DNA of micro-organisms can be altered to produce value-added products (e.g., enzymes, vitamins, and alternative proteins) efficiently and sustainably. There has been lots of...

The increasing importance of drag reduction in commercial vehicles, traditionally motivated by rising energy costs, and more recently accelerated through policymaking in a bid to reduce emissions, has resulted in the development of increasingly sophisticated add-on aerodynamic devices for the semi-trailer. Of these devices, the greatest uptake...
