New railway bridges for high-speed trains are being built in a many countries around the world. In addition to the construction of new bridges, existing bridges are ageing. These two factors make the assessment of railway bridges essential. The bridges are designed considering certain predefined reliability criteria to account for the...

The current approach in the shipping industry by the use of highly toxic coating systems is harmful for our inland waterways and oceans, does not benefit the public health and is very undesirable for all aquatic organisms on our planet.
Almost every vessel today uses a toxic coating system which releases toxic compounds continually into our...

This project proposes a series of experiments that involve plasma synthetic jet actuators. The first experiment will perform a jet characterisation experiment that will research the effect of orifice geometry on the overall performance of the actuator. The second experiment will built upon the first experiment and will use a plasma synthetic jet...

This research focuses on GNSS users interested in a faster position fix in a situation where the receiver holds limited data. This occurs when turning on a mobile phone or sport watch to use a location-based service, driving out of a parking garage with a navigational device or activating a search & rescue beacon. In these cases, users care...

Designing a controlled offshore system is a challenging process, the system dynamics are often nonlinear and subjected to loads that are random in nature. Furthermore, the proper description of the system’s dynamical behaviour involves knowledge pertaining to several fields. Unfortunately, at the design level, the process is often segregated...

The C2,1 and S2,1 spherical harmonic coefficients of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) models are dominated by true polar wander (TPW), the secular drift of the position of the Earth’s rotational axis with respect to the Earth’s surface. The Earth’s rotational state and its interior are closely linked. The deformation of the body induced by a...

During the exposure process of a wafer scanner, problems occur due to reticle heating. In this project, the consequences of reticle heating in terms of image aberrations are discussed along with how they could be solved with feedback controlled cooling. The problem is defined in terms of a performance index and constraints, which fits the Model...

After more than 85 years, the iconic Afsluitdijk is in need of a reinforcement. During the latest safety assessment of Rijkswaterstaat the dike did not meet the standards at two components; the amount of wave overtopping (>10 l/m/s) and armour stability. This research goes into detail about the overtopping on the Afsluitdijk. In the new...

When sawing in bone for medical or medico-legal procedures, fine, airborne dust is produced (aerosols) that can pose a health hazard when inhaled by practitioners. The goal of the current study was to find the influence of saw blade frequency and saw blade contact load, the degree of skeletonisation of the bone, the test environment with...

Fluid bearings have superior wear behavior but still the lifetime of this concept is in not infinite. This wear gets especially troublesome when surface textures are used that can get worn away completely. In this thesis two mechanisms utilizing surface textures for pressure buildup in a lubricating film using magnetorheological (MR) fluids are...

This thesis provides an exposition of the theory of Active Inference in a control theoretic context. Active Inference is a remarkably powerful neuroscientific theory that unifies many characteristics of the biological brain. As such, Active Inference provides a valid inspiration in search of improvements in bio-inspired robot control algorithms....

A high drop-out rate is present during current-day air traffic controller (ATCo) training, because the required expertise level is not reached. The determination of the expertise level of ATCo students is currently performed using subjective assessments at a late stage in the training by means of high-fidelity simulator sessions. It is desired...

Considering scenarios of sea level rise, the sediment budget of the Wadden Sea is of interest for both coastal safety and for the maintenance of values of this unique environment. Sand nourishments are foreseen on the ebb-tidal deltas of the Wadden Sea to increase the sediment budget, which requires us to predict the fate of the nourishment....

The technological advancements in the automotive industry have enabled the automation of numerous routine driving tasks. As a result, the art of driving has become a control task with a strong supervisory character, including the common human factor issues. Haptic Shared Control has been shown to be useful in keeping the driver in-the-loop by...

In the early 00 of this century, Keuning et al. (2007) looked into the hydrodynamic forces on the rudder and the influence of the hull and keel on these forces. Among others, they have assessed the lift and drag forces on the rudder. One of the outcomes of this study was an asymmetric lift curve; for negative rudder angles the rudder seems to...

Global medical use of azole antifungals and echinocandins has led to an enormous increase in resistant Candida species, that are most commonly associated with fungal infections. A possible mechanism causing resistance are single or simultaneous point mutations in the genes responsible for encoding antifungal target enzymes. The aim of...

Hyperloop is a high-speed transportation mode which operates by sending magnetically levitated capsule-like vehicles through a near vacuum tunnel. Due to the reduced air resistance and friction, speeds exceeding those of modern aircraft should become possible. When the system is moved underground,
the stability of vehicle vibrations may...
