There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

In this paper we started by explaining what a Markov chain is. After this we defined some key concepts such as stationarity, reversibility and ergodicity which were used throughout the rest of the paper. Next, the classical central limit theorem was stated in order to refresh the reader of this theorem and to show that, because of the dependence...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

<i>Context.</i> In the near-future, exoplanets can be observed directly through telescopes. Although the resolution of the planet's image will only be one pixel at first, the intensity of this pixel will change over time because of the orbit around its host star and its diurnal rotation. This intensity as a function of time is called the light...

In this report, a model is presented to alleviate some of the computational work that goes into the effort of finding the magnetic properties of magnetocaloric materials. The model utilizes an interior point optimization routine to solve for the minimal exchange energy configuration of a system, given the exchange interactions of the material....

When attempting to enter a market, it is of the utmost importance to make a well-thought decision. Numerous academics have examined the first-mover advantage literature to determine whether entering first, second, or late is more advantageous. After many decades, there is still no consensus, and it appears that we are in a dialogue of the deaf....

In recent years the popularity of VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) drones has increased significantly. Due to their hybrid design, these drones can take off and land vertically and fly horizontally, enabling them to land in difficult terrain and have a more extensive range than the Quadcopter counterpart. However, this hybrid design also...

Electric toothbrushes are the most effective method for maintaining oral hygiene, but also the method with the greatest environmental impact. Most of the impact of electric toothbrushes comes from transport, materials and parts. This means that by extending the product life and enabling local loops, the environmental impact of electric...

Due to more stringent greenhouse gas (GHG) emission regulations in the maritime industry, solutions are being sought to decrease the GHG emissions of crew transfer vessels used in offshore wind farms. Multiple alternative fuels and power generating systems can be used to decrease these emissions. In this research, a comparative study is...

Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disease that has a decline in motor behaviour as one of its main symptoms. This decline is currently monitored using subjective measures, such as questionnaires and clinical observations. More detailed and objective tracking of this decline can improve treatment of the disease and allow for earlier...

The Paris agreement has set European countries on a path towards decarbonization of the energy market. Due to the high dependence of natural gas in the Netherlands, various challenges will be faced when facing out fossil fuels. The major drawback of RES is that they are non-dispatchable, meaning their output generation fluctuates over time with...

RLV development can be considered as the modern step towards mission design due to financial and strategic decisions. In the past, reusability has been addressed however the level of maturity of the technology, both in terms of hardware and software was not yet reached. There are several aspects to developing a RLV, and these can be categorized...

Currently, EEG recordings are mostly made using scalp recording devices. These devices are typically difficult to put on and bulky, limiting their use to a lab environment. In-ear EEG recording is proposed as a more practical alternative to scalp EEG recording. <br/><br/>In-ear EEG replaces the scalp electrode array with more discrete earpieces,...

Offshore wind energy is expected to play a major role in the upcoming energy transition. For long distances to shore, it is preferable to connect the wind farms to land by means of High-Voltage DC (HVDC) cables to reduce losses and costs. This currently poses challenges, as wind turbine generators produce variable-frequency low-voltage AC power,...

This study aims to investigate and develop the efficiency of a decentralised dynamic system for last-mile parcel distribution. A better understanding of the efficiency, and thus the feasibility of this decentralised logistics method, contributes to a better understanding of the potential of these systems as alternatives to the current centrally...
