Recent studies have shown the feasibility of differential dynamic programming (DDP) in optimizing Earth-centered solar-sail trajectories. In order to further demonstrate the ability of DDP in the optimization of solar-sail trajectories, this work investigates the performance of DDP for optimizing interplanetary solar-sail trajectories. The...

Cardiothoracic surgery is a common treatment for cardiovascular diseases. Patients are admitted to the ICU after cardiothoracic surgery for continuous monitoring to prevent or treat postoperative complications as much and as soon as possible. One of these complications is the development of circulatory shock. It is likely caused by one or a...

The Kuiper belt is one of the last mostly unexplored regions in the Solar System. Exploration of the Kuiper belt can greatly increase humanity's understanding of the Solar System's formation and evolution. The use of low-thrust propulsion for Kuiper belt missions has the potential to improve the payload mass of the mission due to the high...

Cutter suction dredgers (CSD) are highly vulnerable to large wave loading due to their stiff, spud-based mooring. Many mitigations targeted at reducing the resulting stresses on the spud and other critical operating components have been proposed in recent years, most notably by adding a level of flexibility to the connection between the pontoon...

Since the conception of the euro, it has often been suggested that the eurozone start a programme of jointly issuing government debt. There are many arguments for these so-called Eurobonds, and temporary issuance of them has already taken place in response to the economic impact of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. However, a permanent Eurobond...

Solar sailing is a flight-proven low-thrust propulsion technology with strong potential for innovative scientific missions. The heliogyro is promising sailcraft design that utilizes a set of long slender blades which are deployed and flattened by spin-induced tension and whose orientations can be individually controlled. The main advantages of...

Charting hyperlocal wind using a drone is a challenge of increased attention as it unlocks potential in a variety of fields. In context of the METeo Sensors In the Sky project, this study proposes a method to estimate the magnitude and direction of wind using a quadcopter in hover and cruise without a dedicated wind sensor. Only on-board sensors...

It is difficult for people to find strategies that fit their needs for changing behaviors. This project investigates how individuals can be supported to reflect on their health behaviors through the use of technology. Through various research and design methods, the project provides a comprehensive overview of the literature on reflections, how...

An effective distribution of flight control commands over many aircraft actuators (engines, control surfaces, flaps, etc.) can be achieved with constrained optimisation. Active-Set methods solve these problems efficiently, but their computational time requirements are still prohibitive for aircraft with many actuators or slower digital flight...

Modern vehicles have multiple different buses to communicate between components, like CAN (FD) and FlexRay. ZF builds ”innovation vehicles” with new components to showcase and test them. These components are connected to the automotive buses. ZF uses a web-based Human Machine Interface (HMI) to control and view the state of these parts. This HMI...

The applicability of the Sellmeijer design rule to Limburg dike sections near Well, Hout-Blerick, Buggenum, and Thorn was investigated in this thesis. This was accomplished by building a finite element numerical model, in COMSOL Multiphysics, to assess the piping in the hydrogeological systems of the research locations. The proposed model is...

In recent years, there has been renewed interest in propeller research due to environmental concerns. Propellers are known for their low-speed efficiency and compatibility with electric motors. The utilization of regenerative energy during deceleration has been demonstrated to be beneficial for automobiles and has the potential to be applied to...

Maintenance of complex machines or assemblies is an essential part of machine-building companies. Besides building and designing machines, they are responsible for replacing components and restoring the machines to maintain good operational conditions. An optimal maintenance plan ensures that customers spend less on maintenance and remain...

Treatment of prostate cancer can be done by performing brachytherapy, where radioactive seeds are transperineally implanted in the prostate via needles. A known problem during treatments with needles is the risk of targeting errors caused by the deviation of the needle from the planned path in the prostate. One of the main sources of this error...

As quadrotors continue to become more popular for personal and commercial use, improving their safety is essential, especially in impaired operating states. With (asymmetric) blade damage (ABD) being a potentially dangerous type of impairment, it is beneficial to understand how it affects the dynamic behavior of a quadrotor. This research...

Control of a helicopter with a deployed dipping sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) is no trivial task due to the complex dynamics of the suspension cable. The cable can change shape, which influences the effect of water, wind and the motion of the helicopter itself. To control such a system, a control method is needed that can cope with these...

The first aim of this master thesis is to explore whether the normal force on the castor wheels can be estimated from IMU data using a machine learning approach. The second aim is to evaluate whether incorporating the changing load distribution due to trunk movement could improve the friction power estimation compared with neglecting changes in...

To improve the safety of commercial air transport, pilots are required to train on simulators to recognize the characteristics of an impeding stall and subsequently correctly recover from it. To prevent negative training, it is important that the accuracy of the used simulation models is high. A manner to model the nonlinear, unsteady...
