In this report we study Markov processes on compact and connected Riemannian manifolds. We define a random walk on such manifolds and give a direct proof of the invariance principle. This principle says that under some conditions on the jumping distributions (i.e. the distributions of single steps), the random walk converges to Brownian motion...

This report describes VR, its patterns and tools to see more. It starts of by explaining what Virtual Reality means and setting the boundaries for the project.

It then continues identifying interaction patterns by covering papers, literature, blogs, interviews and researching actual VR applications on the HTC Vive, Google Cardboard and...

This study improves the Short term wind power forecasting to help bid the wind power in the electricity market. Supplying power lesser/greater than the expected power creates imbalance in the Electricity system. Hence electricity markets impose penalty for supplying power lesser/greater than expected power. Bidding right amount of power is an...

Spliethoff is a ship-operating company with around 120 cargo vessels under management.
The vessels of Spliethoff are generating a lot of operational data as they sail around the globe. To make better decisions based on this data, a system is required that takes operational data and translates it to useful information, accessible in the offce...

In the Netherlands, approximately 1.750 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year. Approximately 20% of these new patients are operated with curative intent. This surgical treatment, called pancreaticoduodenectomy leads to a five-year survival rate of 5-10%. Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) is a complex surgical procedure...

In order to produce more complex parts, additive manufacturing is on the rise as a competitor for more conventional manufacturing methods. Unfortunately, additive manufacturing often produces products with a less desirable tolerance and surface roughness. Subtractive methods require special tooling and fixtures for each part design and typically...

Besides building ultra-lightweight sportscars, Donkervoort Automobielen B.V. is developing a novel core material to be applied in complex shaped composite sandwich structures. This material goes by the name of X-Core and has the unique capability of generating the pressure required for facesheet consolidation, enabling a one-shot manufacturing...

During this project, the possibilities between carbon fibres and glass were explored. It appeared that no significant improvement in mechanical properties can be obtained by reinforcing the glass. Therefore other directions were explored in the kiln, with hot glass, with glue and with electric current, both aesthetic and functional. Eventually a...

The static liquefaction tank (SL-tank) is a unique large-scale facility that provides a means to simulate the conditions of a submerged soil slope under failure conditions. Static liquefaction (SL) may be defined as a significant loss of soil’s shear strength due to a substantial development of excess pore water pressure under monotonic loads....

Years after the peak of the Global Financial Crisis, Europe as a theatre of business remains exposed to considerable pressures from uncertainties in the development of national economies. One key element to sustainable success in corporate venturing is the capacity of enterprises to sense and seize an opportunity to grow value through investment...

Numerical process-based morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and have become the new standard when it comes to assessing the impact of natural or man-made structures on coastal environments. The most common practice among engineers is to focus on a single spatial and time scale, which means either neglecting...

The SkelEx exoskeleton is a non-linear spring-based passive upper body exoskeleton that has the goal to compensate the weight of the wearer's arms. Bending of three stacked non-linear springs transfers force from the hips of the wearer to the back of the upper arm. The amount of bending of the springs is a function of the geometry of the...

The Blade Element Momentum (BEM) method is a widely used model for rotor performance and aeroelastic calculations but it has assumptions in its formulation which limit its accuracy. The theoretical background of these limitations has been studied and an improvement in the form of the Near Wake Model (NWM) has been identified. The model adds near...

As part of the ESA mission to Jupiter and Ganymede carried out by the Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE) spacecraft, the Ganymede Laser Altimeter (GALA) will determine the topography and detect Ganymede’s tidal degree-2 signal in order to investigate the existence of a subsurface ocean and constrain its thickness. To deliver successful...

Resonant motions of a combined wind and wave concept (STC) in waves may induce significant loads in the structural components (such as wind turbine blades, nacelle or the interface between the spar and the torus). One type of resonant motions is related to the so-called Mathieu instability. For the STC under the survival mode where the torus is...

The emerging field of 3D printing has expanded to the fabrication of metallic components during the last decade. Among the most prominent applications is the production of aluminium bronze marine propellers by the Wire+Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) method. This method incorporates a welding system attached to a robotic arm. The final product...

Beach nourishments or sand replenishments are applied by the use of pipelines or the rainbow method. Replenished sand is then moved and levelled by bulldozers. This is a passive approach to process the outflow of material. The land based equipment is dependent from tides and water levels, and significant effort is required to install and...
