For both security and analytics, much research has gone into person tracking already. As a result, many
different state of the art technologies exist. However, in darkness or without a direct line of sight, much
less technologies are capable of this. The choices become especially limited when the setup needs to
be portable.

Fibre Metal Laminates (FML) are hybrid composites, with the attempt to combine the advantages of metals and fibre reinforced plastics. Their promising properties are used locally in joining areas to reduce the structural weight. As the metal foils density, in this case a steel alloy, is much higher than the density of carbon plies, its amount...

Direct Numerical simulations (DNS) belong to the class of simulations that strive to emulate the real physical flow by trying to simulate the complete range of scales involved in the flow. Though the computational power has steadily increased in the past few decades, resolving the complete range of scales from the largest scales up to the...

Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) frameworks, capable of performing overall aircraft design studies become too complex to be comprehended by a single team of experts. Therefore, there is an increasing need to develop distributed analysis frameworks in which both tools and experts are integrated in a single network. This poses great...

This Master Thesis describes a graduation project developed to investigate how to help people when disrupted life events occur and how to create strategies to empower them in coping with the situation. It is in connection with the research developed by the PhD candidate Patrizia D’Olivo. To date not many strategies were developed to empower...

Within this report is described the process of designing a new Zebro robot for the TU Delft Robotics Institute. Zebro is a six-legged robot specifically intended to become one of the first truly autonomous swarming robots on earth. The specific aim of this project was to design Zebro to become ready for series production, and to become a robotic...

Terminals are encouraged to redesign their operations to facilitate future growth of container freight. Routing of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) can contribute significantly to this trend. Traditional routing, as implemented in real-life terminals, uses a topology of paths. To improve flexibility and scalability of the AGV system, a promising...

A growth in the Dutch food retail is observed. People eat and drink significantly more. 50% of all food is bought in supermarkets and every day over 4 million people in the Netherlands buy their groceries in the supermarket (Rabobank, 2016) (CBL, 2016). However, the current supermarket cannot exist in the future. In its current state, it faces...

In optical imaging, image quality is not only determined by the system itself but also by the media in which light traverse. Differences in the refraction index of the media encountered by a light wavefront produces phase aberrations which distort the image received from the original object. Currently, there are two main approaches for solving...

Dams are an essential part of the Dutch flood defence works to protect the hinterland from flooding by the sea. Sand closures are the construction of closure dams with sand as the main building material. The rising and falling tide generates a current through the closure gap, which increases in strength as the gap becomes smaller. This current...

This research determines the value of local electrical energy storage. This value on one hand consists of a value for the DSO, which is the deferral of investments in their grid. On the other hand, the value of trading with these storage unit is determined. The trading value is constrained by the usage by the DSO.

Despite great strides made in understanding and modelling Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRPs), their full potential is held back by the inability to accurately predict failure. Contrary to past attempts focused on isolated application of stress-strain and fracture mechanics based failure theories, this research builds upon the existing framework by...

In this work the residual-based variational multiscale method is presented in a discontinuous Galerkin framework. This so-called ‘DG-RVMS’ strategy is developed, extensively verified, and tested on a more complex case.

The proposed DG-RVMS paradigm consists of three principle components. First, the perelement weak form is coupled by...

Nearly 50% of the Dutch gardens is paved and this number is ever increasing. This negatively affects the environment. It contributes to biodiversity loss since less space is available as a habitat for flora, fauna and ecosystems. Secondly, the paved gardens do not allow the rainwater to infiltrate the soil. As a consequence, the rainwater is...
