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...

In this paper we started by explaining what a Markov chain is. After this we defined some key concepts such as stationarity, reversibility and ergodicity which were used throughout the rest of the paper. Next, the classical central limit theorem was stated in order to refresh the reader of this theorem and to show that, because of the dependence...

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....

Many people living in low-middle-income countries (LMICs) are affected by injuries that develop into chronic wounds and, without adequate treatment, may lead to disabilities or even cause death. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) is currently a highly suitable manner to treat complex and chronic wounds. NPWT uses controlled negative pressure...

<i>Context.</i> In the near-future, exoplanets can be observed directly through telescopes. Although the resolution of the planet's image will only be one pixel at first, the intensity of this pixel will change over time because of the orbit around its host star and its diurnal rotation. This intensity as a function of time is called the light...

In this report, a model is presented to alleviate some of the computational work that goes into the effort of finding the magnetic properties of magnetocaloric materials. The model utilizes an interior point optimization routine to solve for the minimal exchange energy configuration of a system, given the exchange interactions of the material....

The aim of this thesis is to simulate quantum spin chains at a finite temperature. This has been achieved by using purification to write the incoherent thermal states of the spin chain as pure states, after which the matrix product state (MPS) formalism to simulate the spin chain. The influence of temperature on the spin chain has been tested by...

Due to their attractive characteristics, convertible and callable bonds became a more important class of fixed-income products within the financial market. Therefore, the need for fair and accurate pricing of convertible and callable bonds increases. Where the convertible option can be considered as a right for the bondholder, the callable...

The exponentially increasing number of Earth-orbiting satellites, as well as the pronounced importance for space military operations, impose new challenges on a functional Space Domain Awareness (SDA). A key factor for an effective SDA is the successful identification of an Earthorbiting satellite, or object in general. Current methods are...

Prilling is the industrial process in which thin jets of a molten substance break up into drops and the subsequent solidification of the droplets into solids due to cooling when they fall down in the prilling tower. Prilling is widely used for efficient production of a variety of materials such as, e.g., fertilizer grains, laundry detergent, and...

To reduce the environmental impact of aircraft, technological innovations are required. The Flying-V could be one of these technical innovations, as research shows it could be up to 20 % more efficient than regular aircraft of the same size. The Flying-V however has low lateral control authority, and pitch<br/>break-up could occur for high...

The aim of this study is to capture heterogeneity in travel behaviour during unplanned train disruptions focusing on the rise of teleworking due to the COVID-19 pandemic to improve train services and help predict passenger flows during disruptions. To perform the analyses, a dataset is elicited from 815 Dutch train commuters by distributing an...

Over the past decades Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has become a standard in abdominal surgery. Due to limited dexterity and bad ergonomics the field of MIS is shifting towards Robot-Assisted MIS (RAMIS). Simultaneously, the field is using increasingly small and steerable instruments to reduce invasiveness. Surgeon now work with fragile...

During its thirteen-year long mission in the Saturnian system, the Cassini spacecraft routinely used Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, for performing its gravity assists. The problem of determining the gravity field of Titan by performing a precise fit of Cassini’s orbit to the available Doppler tracking data was reviewed in this study. The...

Current large-scale additive manufacturing extruders use short reinforcing fibre-filled thermoplastic pellets, which marginally improve the mechanical performance but are too short to exploit the strength of the fibres fully. Long fibre pellets have much higher potential strength, and the development of higher strength materials could create...

Novel designs like the Flying-V, Prandtl-Plane and Blended Wing-Body show promise towards sustainable aviation. In the preliminary design phase, Sub-scale Flight Test (SFT) is a reliable method to get insight into the flight behavior of these designs. The effectiveness and value provided by SFT depends on the similitude between the SFT model and...

Background: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a motor neuron disease that is characterized by the degeneration of upper and lower motor neuron (UMN, LMN). A defining feature of ALS is its heterogeneous presentation, with varying sites of disease onset and progression rate. Diagnosing ALS requires the observation of both UMN and LMN...

The growing demand for renewable energy has led to significant developments in wind turbine technology. The ever increasing size of turbine blades and their exposure to a variety of environmental factors can affect their annual energy production and service life. Erosion caused by rainfall and hailstones is identified as two of the most...
