To evaluate the performance of proposed submerged intakes in an early design phase, a performance analysis model able to evaluate a range of intake geometries is required. This document details how such a model was developed with the use of available sub-models for specific flow features. A formulation of the method of characteristics suitable...

The phenomenon by which a spacecraft can both approach a celestial body and start performing revolutions around it, without needing to manoeuvre in between, is known as ballistic capture. For ballistic capture to take place, the spacecraft must be under the gravitational influence of at least 2 celestial bodies. Therefore, it is possible to...

Large water motion inside the moonpool of vessels operating in waves can be excited by pressure fluctuations produced by external waves and vessel motion. Extreme consequences of this effect may include injuries for crew members, and damages to deck equipment resulting in downtime for the vessel. The accepted method to predict this non-linear...

The current wind turbine design tools are based on aerodynamic simulations using blade element momentum (BEM) codes to calculate loads and power, see for instance the tools HAWC2, Bladed or FAST. This engineering method is computationally efficient, but theoretically valid only for steady two dimensional flow in non-yawed conditions.

Since its invention, the Atomic Force Microscope has emerged into one of the most useful tools in
nanotechnology due to its acclaimed abilities in exploring surface topography, micro- and nanoscale manipulation
and characterization. The nonlinear interaction between the cantilever tip and the sample surface
has been studied in great...

The purpose of the research is to provide insight into the conversion of a second-hand vessel into an Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) plant. To this end, a 10 MW ship-shaped OTEC platform, located in the waters around Curaçao, has been designed.
At present, only a few of OTEC plants are in operation, primarily with the purpose of...

Offshore assets experience wave forcings on a daily basis. Whilst the assets are designed with an airgap to protect the deck from these impacts, environments are prone to change, leaving the airgap to be insufficient.

Wave-in-deck (WID) is the phenomenon of waves hitting the deck despite of the airgap. The forcing exerted on the deck...

RANS equations are nowadays widely used in industry because of their affordability in terms of computational costs. They reached a high level of complexity, as they involve systems of non-linear partial differential equations. However they still lack of generality as they are based on closure coefficients determined from fundamental real flow...

European shipyards are building increasing amounts of complex ships such as off-shore, dredging or naval ships that are engineered-to-order. The block division is made when only preliminary hull structural design, functional compartments and the location of major equipment are known. The existing production scheduling optimization algorithms use...

Background: Soft-tissue grip is a challenge in minimally invasive surgery. Grasping instruments used in clinical practice require high pinch forces in order to generate sufficient grip for manipulating soft tissue without slipping.
In nature, several animals employ adhesion in order to grip on, not only hard, but also soft substrates....
