The design process of the Zeker app is a graduation project of the TU Delft faculty of Industrial Design Engineering in collaboration with Capgemini Invent. Capgemini Invent is evoked by the increased safety measure in the pharmaceutical supply chain. The European legislation: The Falsified Medicine Directive, ensures additional serialisation of...

Quantum thermodynamics takes over from classical thermodynamics when systems are of the scale of single particles and quantum fluctuations have a noticeable effect. An interesting topic of research of this relatively new field is the quantum battery, which in this thesis consists of an array of N identical electron spin qubits. In an article by...

Small scale inland shipping, especially in the case of transported containers, is used only marginally compared to its capacity. The small inland waterways have abundant capacity to accommodate up to 700 percent more transport. On the other hand, road based container transport is cause for external damages in the form of congestion, emissions...

This report presents the design process and the design proposal of a non-stigmatising stabilised bicycle designed for the bicycle company Beixo. With the trendy three wheel cargobike that has been designed for the problem of stability and stigma, insecure cyclists, including elderly, can cycle with confidence and stay mobile and independent. A...

This paper deals with the food flow for intercontinental KLM flights. The aim of this research is to design a framework to optimize the processes of food assembly and subsequently apply the framework to increase the throughput time at the intercontinental department of KLM Catering Services. A discrete event simulation model is created to...

Brain cancer is a major health problem and currently used treatment methods are considered suboptimal. Micro-brachytherapy with radioactive Holmium-166 showed to be an effective palliative care method for primary and metastatic brain tumors and intratumoral administration with holmium microspheres (HoMS) showed very promising results with...

The amount of propellant required to perform deep-space maneuvers usually consists of a large percentage of the total spacecraft mass. In the early '90s, a new technique was experimented at the end of the Magellan mission, which employed the atmosphere of Mars itself, to reduce the eccentricity of the orbit over a long period of time. Said...

The design of sails has always been done experimentally, and only recently simulations are starting to be used in the design process. This thesis is a first attempt in creating a solver that couples CFD and FEM in order to compute the deformed sail shape (flying shape) and the thrust it can provide. Such solvers already exist but are not...

Cascading effects are high-impact, low-probability phenomena that have caused catastrophic impacts in various chemical and process plants around the world. With the increasing trend of cyberattacks targeting critical infrastructures, there is a concern that accidents caused by cyberattacks may trigger cascading effects in these facilities. In...

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has been working on the reduction of emissions in sea shipping. This has been done by stricter regulations over the past years in the form of emission limits. An important element which determines the success of this reduction, is the enforcement of the emission limits. A drawback of the current...

Technological progress and innovation have significantly contributed to global economic growth, societal advancement, and higher living standards. However, there is growing concern over the future that lies ahead because of increasing robotisation and progress in artificial intelligence (AI), which are feared to cause significant loss of labour...

New developments in the automotive world have the power to change mobility, but because of high uncertainties, municipalities are adopting a wait-and-see attitude. Nonetheless, autonomous, connected and shared vehicle technologies are in a far stage of development and it is only a matter of time before AVs and SAVs enter urban traffic. This...

The climate change agreements require large investments in renewable energies. However, with the increasing demand for energy, immediately stopping the production and use of fossil fuels is not realistic. Natural gas is twice as clean as coal and hence could be considered as a transition fuel, which can help to find a balance between the...

In 2013, Brabant Water (BW) adopted a new goal of <1 μg/l for As level in the drinking water, resulting in the need to enhance As removal at seven water treatment plants (WPT’s), including WTP Prinsenbosch (As = 2.6 μg/l). Earlier experiences of BW at WTP Dorst had shown that dosing of NaMnO4 to an aeration-filtration system efficiently...

In our aging society, the demand for care is increasing. Therefore, it is foreseen that robots will assist elderly. However, human assistance will often be required by the robot, which thus should be at a position advantageous for telemanipulation. For autonomous manipulation, methods have been developed that position a robot. But for...

One of the main challenges of the recently popular data science field is establishing a common ground of understanding between technical methods and domain knowledge. Making smart and effective use of data is just as important for public organizations as it is for private organizations as our cities and their problems get more complex with...

The transport of highly-viscous oil in the core-annular flow regime in a horizontal pipe is investigated with a numerical simulation study. In this flow type the viscous oil is lubricated by a water annulus along the pipe wall. The Launder-Sharma low-Reynolds number k-ε turbulence model is used with the Volume-of-Fluid solver in interFOAM. Three...
