In future decades, coasts will be exposed to increasing risks because of climate change and sea level rise, which poses an increased threat of coastal inundation, erosion and ecosystem loss. The natural variability of coasts can make it difficult to identify these impacts. Most beaches worldwide show evidence of recent erosion. Sea level rise is...

A more inclusive perspective on heritage management regarding sustainable development becomes an important aspect in understanding and reflecting on heritage buildings or sites. The cultural significance they convey, such as attributes and values attached to them, are not only represented by physical assets, but are also reflected in people’s...

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....

In 2050, it is expected that 70% of the world’s population will live in cities (Jin et al., 2014), leading to increasing congestion in and surrounding cities. This will raise new challenges, requiring more efficient and interactive cities. A novel paradigm contributing to these so-called smart cities is participatory sensing. Also known as...

The characteristics of a metal supported solid oxide fuel cell on methanol is analysed in as the power generator in a balance of plant consisting out of a reformer, combuster, heaters, pumps, turbines and tubes. The system is reviewed on performance regarding efficiency, power density, fuel utilization and viability for marine applications.

Adaptive Deep Brain Stimulation (aDBS) offers the potential for personalized stimulation strategies for patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD). The closed loop characteristic of this system requires the incorporation of PD relevant biomarkers that determine the patient's need. In order to obtain high quality LFP (Local Field Potential) input...

Due to the dynamic and complex nature of the construction industry, it is evident that the integration of processes and groups is more challenging to attain in comparison to other industries (Demirkesen & Ozorhon,2017). Therefore, there is a call for better integration of project participants and processes in construction projects (Franz et...

The growing demand for cardiovascular treatments and the need to control the ever rising health care expenditures require efficient use of expensive resources, such as cardiac catheterization laboratories (cath labs). These in cardiac catheterization specialized operating rooms are labor and capital-intensive. Therefore, a high utilization is...

Rapid intake of intermittent generation units, more decentralised production and electrification of demand impose serious challenges on transmission- and distribution electricity grids. Part of this challenge is an increasing amount of congestion on the grids. The Dutch redispatch market for congestion management needs to be adapted to include...

The Europa Lander is a mission by NASA to land scientific instruments on the Jovian Moon by 2030. The current design of the landing system envisions fixed landing legs with the lander being lowered down at very low velocities (≈ 0.1 m/s) by use of a Skycrane. This latter system not only adds mass, but also requires complicated moving parts and a...

Maintenance is a necessary measure to keep the asset, in this case a road network, in good condition. Spending too much on maintenance is clearly not efficient, while not spending enough may cause the condition to drop below a desired value; moreover, it will almost always cost more to correct the emerging damages afterwards. <br/>In this report...

This work provides a water balance-based approach to improve understanding of drought trends by calculating root storage deficits in the United States. To do this, data is ultimately compiled from 1125 watersheds for the years 2001 to 2016. The root storage deficit is then determined using iteratively optimized transpiration values minus the...

Multi-agent multi-target catching is the act of multiple agents trying to catch multiple moving targets. The exact algorithms created for such chases are generally targets that are actively trying to get as far as possible, while the agents try to prevent that. However, these algorithms can get much more efficient whenever targets also want to...

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is one of the fastest-growing additive manufacturing processes in recent years. Nevertheless, the mechanical properties cannot be matched to those of traditional manufacturing methods such as injection molding.The research presented in this report aims to demonstrate the limitations of fusion deposition models and...

Global supply chains currently are inefficient and unsustainable, due to their overlap and lack of interconnection. The Physical Internet (PI) proposes a paradigm shift in the way we move, store, supply, realize and use goods. The goal of the PI is to interconnect global supply chains, amongst others, on a digital level. For this, information...

The design space of power plants of naval surface vessels is ever expanding. As a result, the design space has become too large for a human design team to fully explore. Therefore, a concept exploration tool is introduced to generate and evaluate all possible concepts within the design space. An optimal solution is chosen based on ship...

The number of space objects has largely increased in the recent years, becoming a considerable threat to the present and future of satellite operations and human spaceflight. This introduces a need to accurately compute the risk of collision between satellites and space debris. Current methodologies are limited by the type of encounter and the...

The dark flight of the meteorite in the atmosphere complicates the estimation of the impact point on the Earth’s surface. The irregular shape of the meteorite affects the aerodynamic forces during the dark flight, which can influence the trajectory of the meteorite. This further complicates the meteorite recovery. Limited knowledge of the...

To cater to the increasing demand in short-range passenger air transport and the research in electric and hybrid aircraft, there is a renewed interest in the research of propellers. Propellers are known to have high aerodynamic efficiency, which translates to lower fuel burn in comparison to other jet engines, making it an attractive option for...

Structures built in lakes and rivers or at sea are under huge forces induced by ice. These cause friction at the ice-structure interface that may pose a threat to the structural integrity of the construction. For the detailed design and realisation of structures in such regions an understanding is required of this friction process. The friction...
