In this report we study Markov processes on compact and connected Riemannian manifolds. We define a random walk on such manifolds and give a direct proof of the invariance principle. This principle says that under some conditions on the jumping distributions (i.e. the distributions of single steps), the random walk converges to Brownian motion...

This report describes VR, its patterns and tools to see more. It starts of by explaining what Virtual Reality means and setting the boundaries for the project.

It then continues identifying interaction patterns by covering papers, literature, blogs, interviews and researching actual VR applications on the HTC Vive, Google Cardboard and...

In this thesis, the adaptation of the spectral clustering algorithm to the privacy preserving domain was investigated. The spectral clustering algorithm divides data points into clusters according to a measure of connectivity. A pivotal part of spectral clustering is the partial eigendecomposition of the graph Laplacian. Two numerical algorithms...

This study improves the Short term wind power forecasting to help bid the wind power in the electricity market. Supplying power lesser/greater than the expected power creates imbalance in the Electricity system. Hence electricity markets impose penalty for supplying power lesser/greater than expected power. Bidding right amount of power is an...

Spliethoff is a ship-operating company with around 120 cargo vessels under management.
The vessels of Spliethoff are generating a lot of operational data as they sail around the globe. To make better decisions based on this data, a system is required that takes operational data and translates it to useful information, accessible in the offce...

In the Netherlands, approximately 1.750 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year. Approximately 20% of these new patients are operated with curative intent. This surgical treatment, called pancreaticoduodenectomy leads to a five-year survival rate of 5-10%. Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) is a complex surgical procedure...

In order to produce more complex parts, additive manufacturing is on the rise as a competitor for more conventional manufacturing methods. Unfortunately, additive manufacturing often produces products with a less desirable tolerance and surface roughness. Subtractive methods require special tooling and fixtures for each part design and typically...

Besides building ultra-lightweight sportscars, Donkervoort Automobielen B.V. is developing a novel core material to be applied in complex shaped composite sandwich structures. This material goes by the name of X-Core and has the unique capability of generating the pressure required for facesheet consolidation, enabling a one-shot manufacturing...

The oil and gas industry is seeking to improve safety on its current operations procedures (Choudarki, 2012). From all oil and gas operations, Topside Installation Processes (TIP) are the only offshore activity that counters one of the golden safety rules, “do not stand or walk under suspended loads” (Peuscher & Groeneweg, 2012). As a...

With a changing market for offshore crew transfer systems the current Ampelmann systems are vulnerable for competitors. One of the downsides of the current system is its influence on the ship due to the system mass. A lightweight re-design of the current steel gangway using composites could start an overall weight decrease. A composite gangway...

During this project, the possibilities between carbon fibres and glass were explored. It appeared that no significant improvement in mechanical properties can be obtained by reinforcing the glass. Therefore other directions were explored in the kiln, with hot glass, with glue and with electric current, both aesthetic and functional. Eventually a...

The static liquefaction tank (SL-tank) is a unique large-scale facility that provides a means to simulate the conditions of a submerged soil slope under failure conditions. Static liquefaction (SL) may be defined as a significant loss of soil’s shear strength due to a substantial development of excess pore water pressure under monotonic loads....

Years after the peak of the Global Financial Crisis, Europe as a theatre of business remains exposed to considerable pressures from uncertainties in the development of national economies. One key element to sustainable success in corporate venturing is the capacity of enterprises to sense and seize an opportunity to grow value through investment...

The project under analysis is about the development and qualification of a demonstrator for a miniaturized foam rheology experiment performed in microgravity environment. The thesis is part of a larger feasibility study to evaluate the possibility of implementing such experiment on the International Space Station as an internal payload of the...

Numerical process-based morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and have become the new standard when it comes to assessing the impact of natural or man-made structures on coastal environments. The most common practice among engineers is to focus on a single spatial and time scale, which means either neglecting...

The SkelEx exoskeleton is a non-linear spring-based passive upper body exoskeleton that has the goal to compensate the weight of the wearer's arms. Bending of three stacked non-linear springs transfers force from the hips of the wearer to the back of the upper arm. The amount of bending of the springs is a function of the geometry of the...

This graduation report was commissioned by NS International to determine the wants and needs of travellers while travelling internationally by train, but also to identify the barriers which prevent travellers from actually using the train for cross-border travel in order to design a service proposition. This proposition will contribute to a...
