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...

Plasma membrane dynamics have become increasingly of interest due to recent discoveries on anomalous lipid diffusion in live cells. A specific characteristic has been found in the exponential relation between lateral lipid diffusion and temperature. The finding was reported to be surprising as a linear dependence was theoretically predicted. In...

In the European Union greenhouse gas emissions of heavy duty vehicles make up 30% of the total caused by road transport. By placing vehicles in a platoon configuration the aerodynamic drag can be heavily reduced. The effect of platooning has been studied on both American and European type vehicles. However many of these studies only disclose the...

Theories regarding the implementation of more structured and frequent approaches to reflection in professional settings, is a topic that has received little attention in research. Therefore, the aim of this thesis was to gain a better understanding about design practitioners’ daily reflection patterns, with a focus on supporting a balanced...

One sixth of the world's coastline consist of coral reefs and provide natural flood defence for the people who live in the coastal region behind the reef. However, a rising sea level, changing wave conditions and degradation of corals threaten the coastal safety of these reefs.Numerical models can be applied to study the reef-hydrodynamics and...

This project is about shaping the context of critical care in a world where simplicity and consistency is expected from product • user interactions, while the implications of these interactions are becoming more complex.

The project is related to the Critical Alarms Lab (CAL), which focusses on the design of multi-sensory information...

Developments in the field of renewable energy technologies have lead to low energy cost in areas with specific characteristics. In the Middle East solar power plants are built for prices around 3 cent per kilowatt-hour and bids below 3 cent have been placed. In Europe wind energy is the second largest source of renewable energy after biomass....

Recent studies have shown the feasibility of (quasi-)pole-sitter orbits at Mars and Venus, which involves a satellite positioned along or near the polar axis of a planet in order to have a continuous, hemispherical view of the planet's polar regions. In order to further demonstrate the feasibility of this mission concept, this thesis...

An important problem in reinforcement learning is the exploration-exploitation dilemma. Especially for environments with sparse or misleading rewards it has proven difficult to construct a good exploration strategy. For discrete domains good exploration strategies have been devised, but are often nontrivial to implement on more complex domains...

A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) can achieve a considerably higher overall fuel economy than conventional vehicles. The fuel economy of PHEVs however, strongly depends on the supervisory control strategy of the hybrid powertrain. Compared to conventional, non-predictive, supervisory control systems, predictive control methods can further...

The worlds energy demand is increasing however, the majority of the energy supply is still based on fossil fuels. The consumption of fossil fuels results in the emission of carbon dioxide which is one of the main greenhouse gases responsible for the ongoing climate change. In order to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions, more and more energy is...

The application of machine learning algorithms as data-driven turbulence modelling tools for Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations is presented. A novel machine learning algorithm, called the Tensor Basis Random Forest (TBRF) is introduced, which is able to predict the Reynolds stress anisotropy tensor. The algorithm is trained on...

This project is an assignment commissioned by Houweling Interieur, a furniture retailer. They were seeking new business opportunities and therefore wanted to investigate the opportunities for a furniture lease service in the expatriate market.

Introducing a lease service would have several consequences for the company as well as for...

The introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, fossil fuel depletion and urban air pollution. The exponential growth of the EV market requires a significant expansion of the public charging infrastructure. This causes challenges especially in cities in terms of parking pressure, grid reinforcements...

This graduation project is based on the services that Flatland, a visual consultancy company, provides within the strategic visual design market. The discussion within this project is about what the role of the facilitator is and what the balance should be between gathering content for deliverables, and managing the collaboration and interaction...

Micro-/nanoimprint lithography is a high-throughput, high-resolution, and low-cost mass production fabrication process often used for creating microfluidic devices and optical components. In the imprint lithography process, a surface pattern of a stamp is replicated into a material by mechanical contact and three dimensional material...
