Yachts are built to provide guests with a unique experience. In order to provide this experience, yachts are often anchored at special locations. Captains prefer to use a single bow anchor when they moor the vessel. Problems are reported with respect to the availability while yachts are at anchor. These are caused by environmental forces....

More than forty years after its introduction, Simplified General Perturbation Theory No. 4 (SGP4) is still currently in use as the de facto standard in orbit propagation and in generating Two-Line Elements (TLEs). Unfortunately, the positioning error that results from the generated TLEs have remained relatively unchanged and continue to increase...

Drag measurements on bluff-bodies such as bobsleighs using force balance systems have been in prevalence for a few decades. However these studies do not reveal anything on the flow behaviour around the body. In the recent past, various flow visualization techniques have been applied to investigate the flow behaviour around bobsleighs. Even...

Improving energy efficiency is marked as one of the key strategies to tackle global warming. Therefore policy makers try to design policies that steer our society towards a more energy efficient way of living. An important target for policy makers is the residential sector. Households use fuel and electricity, to power all sorts of residential...

EU climate goals force EU member states to increase the share of renewable electricity generation in their respective electricity markets. To reach these climate goals, offshore wind energy is regarded as one of the main technologies that can contribute to a full transition towards a fossil-free electricity system. Furthermore, 230 Gigawatts (GW...

This report describes the work performed on the experimental setup and initial characterization of the Alternative Low Power Hybrid Ion Engine (ALPHIE) plume performed at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) Plasma Laboratory. First, a general background of plasma thrusters is presented, followed by a review of relevant plasma parameters...

The growing interest in organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) based power systems has encouraged ample amount of literature on the design methodologies for unconventional turbo-machinery. These machines generally operate in the so-called Non-Ideal Compressible Fluid Dynamic (NICFD) region of the working fluid where the thermophysical properties and...

The main goal of any launch vehicle is to bring as much payload to space as possible. Space planes have been studied for decades, as they are thought to be more cost effective for frequent access to space than traditional expendable launchers. This research aims at optimizing the payload capacity of a single stage to orbit (SSTO) horizontal take...

Glacial isostatic adjustment is the viscoelastic response of the Earth to ice and ocean loads. In forward models of glacial isostatic adjustment, mantle viscosity is often assumed to be laterally homogeneous. However, a lateral transition in shear wave velocities suggests a sharp transition in viscosity between West and East Antarctica. Along...

This research investigates the role of how Finite Element simulation models reproduced progressively crushed Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) parts. The proposed work is motivated by the research questions concerning what are the relevant critical modeling strategies that accurately reproduce the behavior of in-plane crushed laminated...

This work is on the extension of the SWIFT method to option pricing problems where the sum of lognormals occurs. The SWIFT method (ShannonWavelet Inverse Fourier Technique) is extended to the valuation of geometric Asian options and arithmetic Asian options with a Lévy process as underlying price process and the valuation of European options...

Using Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors in rolling element bearings is a novel way of monitoring bearings. During prototype testing, differences between sensor readouts were observed, leading to the research question: “What causes the observed differences in the strain distribution from sensor to sensor in a rolling element bearing equipped with...

In the Netherlands the main sources of electricity are currently coal and gas fired power plants. Due to the increasing share of electricity that is produced from renewable energy sources, the operational hours of these conventional power plants are decreasing. However, these power plants are also the main source of frequency reserves,...

Wave runup is generated by energy which remains after wave breaking and travels farther to the coast in the form of a bore. It can be seen as a thin wedge of water running up the beach face (Brocchini and Baldock, 2008). Under storm conditions runup is responsible for beach and dune erosion and accurate runup predictions are therefore required ...

This report is the graduation thesis for the Master of Design for Interaction, Faculty of Design Engineering at Delft University of Technology. The report presents a set of guidelines showing the relationships between food textures and conscious and satiating snacking experiences. As a designer, food textures can be considered as tools to shape...
