Door de steeds strengere milieuwetgeving wordt het voor ontwerpers van aandrijflijnen in voertuigen steeds belangijker cm een aandrijflijn te ontwerpen met het oog op een laag energieverbruik en een minimale hoeveelheid emissies. Hierdoor worden de toegepaste componenten en de opbouw van aandrijflijnen steeds complexer. Door gebruik te maken van...

Collaboration between the Global South and Global North is inevitable. It can work. It can be emphatic, effective, and more equal. However, there is a deeply embedded history of colonialism involving power asymmetries that give rise to the dismissal of value systems, which pervert this type of collaboration from being truly realised. Hence,...

Acidizing is a widely used technique for intensification of geothermal wells. At certain conditions, acid injection results in a formation of highly conductive channels, e.g. wormholes. The associated rock matrix dissolution is highly nonlinear and may influence the fluid flow as well as rock properties. Wormhole patterns and breakthrough time...

To meet the ambitious renewable energy target of 170 GW, India is eyeing its vast solar energy potential. To tap this potential, it needs large swaths of land and massive infrastructure development. Research in the western countries has shown that renewable energy infrastructure developments has led to instances of injustices at local level. In...

Nowadays, Dopple's wireless earphones have touch buttons as a user inter-<br/>face, however these take in quite some physical space. Since the earphones<br/>are becoming smaller over the years, there is a need for a new type of touch-<br/>less user interface, that is smaller. In order to create that new user interface,<br/>research is done on...

Due to increasing cost pressure, disturbances from customs and an opportunity seen in reducing costs by increasing the procurement and construction in the Far East, Damen Shipyards Gorinchem is changing the requirements for its supply chain. Changes to the supply chain however not only inflicts a large number of stakeholders, but the cost...

Flight planning is a process of optimisation that is commonly solved by complex software tools. Quantifying the quality of such a system is for the users an unsolved problem. This paper proposes a method that measures the inefficiencies in different domains to gain insights in the performance of flight planning tools. The established assessment...

In order to reduce aircraft emissions during on-ground operations, electric taxiing systems (ETS) have been intensively researched to take over or assist in part of the taxiing phase of a flight. One of these ETS is the TaxiBot, deployed by Smart Airport Systems (SAS). While a number of papers have been researching this vehicle routing problem ...

With standard aircraft configurations reaching their limits in efficiency, new aircraft configurations are being theorized and analyzed. One type of analysis is remotely piloted scaled flight tests. One of the aspects that can be analyzed through remotely piloted scaled flight tests is the dynamic behavior of the aircraft. This thesis shows a...

An important step in determining the performance of a commercial ship is to determine the vessel fuel consumption in offdesign conditions. In previous studies, the vessel fuel consumption is obtained using machine learning algorithms which use navigational data and meteorological data to train the models. Due to the inaccuracy of the weather...

In this thesis we investigate the possibilities for applying Koopman methods for reachability analysis. Reachability analysis is a verification process used to determine that a dynamical system starting in an initial set X0 cannot reach a certain set of dangerous states D within a time interval [0,T]. Koopman methods seem promising, because they...

Inner–city quay walls fulfil a number of very important functions where the retention of water is the most important one observed from a structural perspective. Despite their importance, not all of these structures are very well maintained, especially the older ones. Each municipality has their own maintenance regime, depending on the allocated...

This study focuses on investigating an alternative validation method to validate the compressor side of turbochargers. Nowadays, the performance of turbochargers is tested using hot gas stands. These hot gas stands are expensive. The application of an externally coupled e-motor to the turbocharger eliminates the need for a hot gas burner -...

Good supply strategy that can improve the logistical chain involves taking into account the complexity that a specific good is situated in. This research takes improving the bicycle supply chain within the Netherlands armed Forces as a use case. Aside from the goals for the use case of bicycles, the aim was also to fill the knowledge gap of...

Background<br/>Elephants that wander onto the fields of farmers in Myanmar are being shot with makeshift guns. By doing this, the farmers are able to make these animals leave the area without killing them. This results in elephants walking around with bullets inside their body and wounds that need to be looked after. Traditional methods for...

The commercialization of the space industry has led to a reduction in size and weight of satellites and launching vehicles, which have effectively reduced the cost of space services. The costs of launching payloads to space can be significantly reduced when the launching vehicles are reusable. The two-stage-to-orbit system with a winged,...

To meet energy demand towards a low-carbon future, the global market demand is growing for metals such as cobalt and nickel which are major elements in batteries. Polymetallic nodules, which are formed on abyssal plains at depths ranging from 4 to 6 kilometres and are distributed in high abundance on the top of the seabed, contains several times...

Introduction Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging is a relatively novel development in colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) surgery which has proven to be an added value for the detection of new lesions and surgical guidance. However, new possibilities of NIRF imaging in CRLM surgery are yet to be explored. The fluorescent rim of indocyanine...

Optical microscopes are fundamentally limited to a resolution of several hundreds of nanometers by the diffraction of light. Single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) circumvents this limit by sparsely exciting fluorescent molecules at different time instances. Single molecules can subsequently be localized with improved precision over the...
