Vacuum extraction is a form of assisted vaginal birth where a vacuum cup is attached onto the fetal head by means of suction on which traction force is then exerted to facilitate birth. Vacuum extraction is often regarded as a safer option than the cesarean section and forceps delivery, due to decreased risk of maternal en fetal complications....

Microgrids are a promising tool that can help transition the electricity grid towards a smart grid. They can provide significant benefits to the power grid in the form of increased reliability and flexibility. The microgrid controller sets the electricity consumption and generation of all controllable devices within the microgrid and controls...

The future poses a major problem of feeding 9 billion people by 2050, while the current system of agriculture in itself is unsustainable and demands resources which exceed the planetary boundaries. Further continuing this trend of exploitation and destruction of ecology will only worsen the planetary stresses the Anthropocene has established....

Design decisions which are made in the preliminary ship design phase have a significant influence on the performance and total cost of a ship. These design decisions are mostly made with very little knowledge of the ship design problem. In fact, it is the personal experience of the naval architect which plays a significant role in this phase of...

Hospitals fulfill an important function within the healthcare systems, providing complex and specialized care. Healthcare continues to evolve into more effective forms of care and thus benefiting those in need. While care changes the physical hospital rarely does, resulting in hospital architecture which leaks the quality to contribute to and...

The biological functions of natural polyelectrolytes are strongly influenced by the presence of ions, which bind to the polymer chains and thereby modify their properties. Although the biological impact of such modifications is well recognized, a detailed molecular picture of the binding process and of the mechanisms that drive the subsequent...

In a recent study, we identified seven key circular competencies for design: (1) Design for Multiple Use Cycles, (2) Design for Recovery, (3) Circular Impact Assessment, (4) Circular Business Models, (5) Circular User Engagement, (6) Circular Economy Collaboration, and (7) Circular Economy Communication. These were derived from small‐scale...

Designers play an important role in service transformation and the development of product-service systems by applying co-creation methods. This paper presents a case of how we applied co-creation in practice and the impact this has had on developing a circular product-service system. It details the method used in the co-creation process and...

Societal challenges such as climate change and inefficiency of energysystems more and more crave for a sustainable environment. Research proved thatrestructuring energy systems into more sustainable forms, called “Energy Transition”, has faced challenges. How to deal with these challenges requires the cocreation between various actors with...

The estimation of groundwater recharge is of paramount importance to assess the sustainability of groundwater use in aquifers around the world. Estimation of the recharge flux, however, remains notoriously difficult. In this study the application of nonlinear transfer function noise (TFN) models using impulse response functions is explored to...

Event managers at large city events use crowd density as a metric in the process of maintaining safety at large scale city events. Identifying the density of crowds at these events relies on expensive physical infrastructure to work well or have limited accuracy. We propose amethod that addresses the gap of not relying on physical infrastructure...

For real-world problems even the most complex machine learning models can only achieve a certain accuracy. This makes it important to understand why a specific prediction is made. Explanations can provide human decision support by allowing human experts to assess the reasoning of the model as well as the correctness. Specifically, in this thesis...

With 2,975 safety violations in the US alone, the lockout safety routine, one of the most important safety methods in the industry, remains unsafe. This is caused by the limited adherence of companies employees to the preset protocols. Heavy industries primarily focus on the efficiency of their processes and recognise the rising potential of...

Building models for an electric vehicles usage data set in order to simulate virtual populations of these electric vehicle users. With these simulated populations charging strategies for electric vehicle users could be developed in order to improve the use of electric vehicles. The modeling is done with copula functions, and are compared with...

Stiffened shells and plates are widely used in engineering, but their performance is highly influenced by the arrangement, or layout, of stiffeners on the base shell or plate and the geometric features, or topology, of these stiffeners. Moreover, structures with modules are beneficial, since it allows for increased quality control and more...

The Smart Personal Protective Equipment (SPPE) is proposed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to shortages of standard face masks. This thesis describes one of the three subsystems of the SPPE, namely the Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI). The UVGI subsystem provides the SPPE with an in situ disinfection system, in order...

Small Island Developing States, including many low-lying atoll islands, are among the most vulnerable countries to natural hazards and climate change disproportionately amplifies this vulnerability. Hence, there is a strong need for disaster risk reduction and risk management. Further development and implementation of methodologies for flood...
