In current practice, the feasibility of the project goal is only assessed by project owners at the start of the project, up until the final investment decision (FID) is made. The final investment decision involves the decision of the owner to continue the project into the project execution phases. After the FID is made, the project goal...

Haptic shared control (HSC) is a method to combine the abilities of humans and machines, in which human and automation jointly exert forces on an input device. According to human-centered design, the underlying controller for HSC should closely resemble human behavior. This paper aims to continuously adapt HSC based on an online identified...

A composite wind turbine blade is partially thick-walled to comply with high strength criteria. When the manufacturer’s recommended cure cycle (MRCC), which is designed for thin-walled components, is used for thick-walled components it can lead to high levels of residual stress. This experimental research investigates different cure cycles for...

In multi-stage launch vehicles, the adjacent stage re-enters the Earth atmosphere. Once the stage is re-entering the atmosphere, the low-melting-point materials melt and the inner parts will be exposed to excessive heat. With heat increasing, the parts will break into debris. Some of the fragments will burn in the atmosphere, others will crash...

To improve the passenger experience at airports, an environment was designed around a relaxing chair. The goal was to create an environment in which passengers feel free to take some time to relax and forget about the aspects that cause them to experience stress or anxiety. The design is created to make the experience of passengers at airports...

During front crawl swimming, water is driven backwards with the limbs. Drag forces generated by the limbs are consequently used for forward propulsion. The hands are responsible for approximately 60% of the generated propulsive forces. Reaching a podium place in competitive swimming is dependent on differences in finishing times smaller than 0.5...

Lifting an object by capillary forces is mostly done with a single liquid bridge which connects the target object to a probe. In this work the potential of capillary forces for soft-tissue manipulation is investigated; not only a single liquid bridge is used, but multiple bridges as well since capillary forces can be enhanced by contact...

Globally, at each river mouth freshwater is discharged to coastal waters. At each river mouth a freshwater plume is formed. These fresh water plumes are also known as the regions of freshwater influence (or ROFI’s). Furthermore, the freshwater plume will affect local coastal water levels. In order to improve global flood forecasting, research on...

Knowledge of the influence of loading directions on trabecular bone remodeling in spine is of significant value in understanding the development of spine deformities and vertebral bone quality across different scales. Information on the constitution of a preferred trabecular orientation and mechanical properties of trabecular bone are important...

Every year about 1.25 million people die as a result of road traffic accidents. Besides the traffic on the road increases every day, including the environmental impact due to the corresponding traffic emissions. Autonomous driving could be a unique opportunity to increase these traffic safety, traffic flow efficiency and to reduce emissions in...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) technology development is currently in the gap between academia and commercialization. To bridge this gap, all stakeholders that influence the development must perform optimally. This thesis presents the performance of OTEC developing stakeholder groups (‘clusters’) in Japan, the Netherlands, France, USA...

Implementing the syntax and semantics of a new (domain-specific) programming language is a lot of work, which is worsened by the additional work needed to add support for the language to an editor such as Eclipse or VS Code. Lack of such support can impede language usability and adoption, as developers prefer different editors. However,...

Self-driving vehicles are the future of automotive engineering. Systems that take over control from the driver are developed to be able to interact with the conditions of the road and other obstacles. To develop these systems, developers use vehicle models to simulate the behaviour of the moving vehicle. The systems developed using these models...

Incorporating carbon nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes into a polymer matrix not only enhances the mechanical properties of the composite, but also induces good electrical properties. This makes carbon nanocomposite interesting for potential electronic applications, such as electromagnetic interference shielding by means of creating...

Baggage handling systems (BHS's) are very complex systems consisting of smaller sub-systems. This thesis explores the potential of automated generation of BHS concept designs for airports. Concept design for BHS's can be defined as the design of the system configuration (which equipment to use and how many equipment pieces) and system layout ...
