Coastal areas are highly dynamic systems sensitive to natural and anthropogenic change. The range of social, economic, and environmental functions served by diverse coastal environments makes understanding their geomorphology valuable. Parametric shape functions have historically been used to represent the cross shore profile of specific coastal...

The introduction of data-based modeling in football (soccer) in the last decade has led to the creation of models that describe player performance through key performance indicators (KPIs). However, relying solely on historical and current KPI values is insufficient for scouting departments, as predicting future values could significantly...

Fault ride-through capability studies of MMCHVDC connected wind power plants have focused primarily on the DC link and onshore AC grid faults. Offshore AC faults, mainly asymmetrical faults have not gained much attention in the literature despite being included in the future development at national levels in the ENTSO-E HVDC code. The proposed...

An earlier study introduced a formula for determining the holding force of a toroidal hydrostat gripper when gripping an object of constant radius, considering a linear stress/strain relationship. However, beyond the holding force, understanding the grasping disturbance force exerted on the object due to the rolling behavior during grip...

Diamagnetism can be used for energy-less levitation, while allowing for friction-free movement of objects in vacuum conditions. A very suitable material can be found in Highly Oriented Pyrolytic Graphite(HOPG), which not only has relatively high diamagnetic properties, but also electrical properties which allow for contactless actuation through...

Design methodologies for retrofitting are devised, and the retrofitted fuselage configuration designs were developed and tested for crashworthiness using finite element analysis in this thesis. These retrofits aimed to install hydrogen tanks within the fuselage, contributing to an efficient transition of the aerospace sector towards hydrogen...

The rapid digitalisation of healthcare has underscored the importance of cybersecurity in hospitals. Yet, there is an untapped potential to consider cybersecurity from the start, during the procurement of medical devices. This thesis investigates the current procurement practices in Dutch hospitals, focusing on how cybersecurity considerations...

Enceladus, a moon of Saturn, is a prime candidate for extraterrestrial life due to its subsurface ocean and organic-rich water plumes, discovered by the Cassini mission. Exploring this potential involves significant challenges due to the harsh and dynamic environment of Enceladus. The moon’s cryogenic temperatures, tectonic activity and...

Haptic bilateral teleoperation technology aims to transmit the sensation of touch over the internet, enabling remote work for all. However, it faces significant challenges, including stringent latency requirements (sub 1 ms) for the Tactile Internet and the need for advanced models in Model Mediated Teleoperation. This work explored the...

Hydrogen is an interesting and promising alternative for fuels. Currently, most hydrogen is produced via a process called steam reforming, where a reaction between methane and water occurs, with carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide as waste products and released in the atmosphere. This work presents a study on the sustainable production of...

This thesis investigates a floating truss structure’s local and global response to breaking waves slamming loads. The case study of interest is the supporting structure of SolarDuck’s (SD) platform FPV. Their design consists of different triangular modules, with the solar panels at a safe height from wave impacts. In future designs, the truss...

Aviation has a significant contribution to climate change, which must be decreased. The A321 APPU could offer a substantial improvement, by introducing a hydrogen-powered Auxiliary Power and Propulsion Unit (APPU). This turboshaft engine is located in the tail cone and powers a boundary layer ingestion propulsor, taking over 10% of the thrust....

The energy transition requires the adoption of various hazardous chemicals to generate, transport and utilize energy. In this adoption process, value conflicts between stakeholders need to be considered to foster the social acceptance of these chemical molecules. To be able to anticipate on these value conflicts, this study aimed to develop and...

The relationship between energy consumption and baggage handling systems (BHSs) has not been widely studied. In this study, this relationship is explored by considering BHS configurations - the designed arrangement of devices. The BHS consists of seven main processes: drop-off, transportation from drop-off to screening, hold baggage screening ...
