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...

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....

For an Autonomous Vehicle (AV) to traverse safely in traffic, It is vital it can anticipate the behavior of surrounding traffic participants using motion prediction. Current motion prediction approaches can be categorized into object-centered and object-agnostic methods and are primarily based on deep learning. The former relies on a human...

Economic growth, especially after the financial crisis of 2008, has been declining in many OECD nations. Declining economic growth has negative effects including a lower rate of productivity growth, stagnating standards of living, increases in income inequality etc. Many economists believe that stagnating fixed business investment is one of the...

Distant Retrograde Orbits (DROs) are special orbits for third bodies in two-body systems. The third body revolves around the secondary – the smaller of the two primaries – in a retrograde way, meaning the direction is opposite to the direction that the primaries revolve around each other. DROs are not close to either of the primaries, making it...

To reduce the environmental impact of the aviation sector in Europe, climate goals have been set as stated in the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal. This reduction can be achieved by fleet replacement with electrified aircraft. Challenging is that electrified aircraft are yet in a conceptual phase and most likely suitable for smaller...

Background: Radiostereometric analysis (RSA) is a technique to assess early migration, which has a predictive value for early failure of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). To successfully analyze the RSA images it is important to have a sufficient amount of visiblemarkers with an acceptable three-dimensional distribution.<br/>Objective:...

Urgent action is needed to decrease maritime emissions. The renewable wind energy sector must also decrease its life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Total GHG emissions from offshore wind turbines are approximately 120% more compared to onshore wind turbines. Moreover, it is estimated that Walk to Work (W2W) vessels are responsible for 3.3...

As software systems evolve over time, the quality of its structure and code degrade unless developers regularly maintain it, requiring significant effort. Automated tools to help developers maintain software have been well-studied in the past. <br/>In particular, software remodularisation tools focus on improving the code structure quality with...

As the world continues to embrace cloud computing, more applications are being scaled elastically. Elastic scaling allows applications to add or remove computing resources based on the load experienced by the application. When the load is high more resources are provisioned enabling the application to keep up with the load. When the load is low...

A structural firm will not invest a large sum of money in early design fase on a wind tunnel aeroelastic model to determine the displacements, forces, and moments when the dimensions of a building have only been estimated because the outcomes are only valid for that specific model. It is well-known that the outcomes are hard to determine...

Research and development of thermoplastic composites has been ever increasing owing to the advantages brought by it over conventional materials such as metals and thermoset composites. Higher processing rates, automation, the possibility to recycle, weldability and better mechanical and chemical properties are some of them. Fusion bonding of...

Supply planning is an NP-Hard problem that is often tackled when dealing with supply chain management. It is a problem with many variations but the core idea is to create a plan that resolves as much demand as possible.<br/>There are different approaches in use to solve a planning problem, one of which is by using heuristics. Heuristics are used...

To make propellers more viable as a greener alternative to jet engines, the issue of propeller noise needs to be addressed. Previous propeller design optimization studies rarely take into account the effects on aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance due to non-uniform inflow, the type of flow the propeller would experience if it was installed...

There is a demand by Rijkswaterstaat for CO2-neutral sustainable methods and technologies to maintain the Dutch coastline. The Zandwindmolen is a fixed CO2-neutral dredge, transport and nourishment concept that nourishes sediment continuously. The purpose of using a Zandwindmolen is to provide the entire surrounding area where the Zandwindmolen...

The main purpose of this report is to investigate flaws within Cornelis Tromp 25T lemniscate crane upper arm joint. This is done in order to figure out why the joint structure is experiencing significant crack propagation and what potentially could have led to a structural joint failure and death of an operator within a crane of the same model....

Natural Language Interfaces for Databases (NLIDBs) offer a way for users to reason about data. It does not require the user to know the data structure, its relations, or familiarity with a query language like SQL. It only requires the use of Natural Language. This thesis focuses on a subset of NLIDBs, namely those with 'plain English' sentences...
