When containers are transported on synchromodal bookings from their origin to their destination, the transport supplier can decide which combination of trucks, trains, and ships to use. This gives transport suppliers many options to route the container through the synchromodal network. Current literature on the individual routing of containers...

A wall-resolved Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of a wing-body junction is performed. The aim is to generate high-fidelity junction flow data to be used in a data-driven turbulence modelling approach, specifically to improve the accuracy of RANS-simulations in junction flows. The simulation is performed on a 61.5 million C-grid body fitted mesh in...

The increasing importance of climate change and stricter regulations for greenhouse gas emissions raise the pressure on the automotive industry to develop more efficient products. Besides a reduction of emissions by new combustion engines, electric vehicles are being introduced to lower the fleet fuel economy. Especially this new drivetrain...

Dimples are shallow, indented surfaces that attempt to reduce drag in turbulent boundary layer flows. However, the underlying effect of the dimples on the drag is not entirely understood. This thesis sets out to expand our understanding; a numerical investigation of turbulent boundary layer flow over dimpled surfaces is conducted. This research...

This thesis introduces a theory for model-driven objective functions in Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithms. For scheduling supply chains, such model-driven objective functions allow the MPC algorithm to make optimal scheduling decisions by anticipating future changes in product flow and transfer price dynamics. Including such dynamics...

There is a tremendous push to explore alternative fuels such as hydrogen or synthetic fuels to combat the effects of climate change. An important step in the development of alternative fuels is the characterisation of its combustion characteristics. There are various diagnostic tools which aid in the determination of flame properties. Optical...

Double strand breaks are lesions to the DNA and can be fatal for cells. Therefore these breaks are repaired, primarily by one of the three major repair pathways. Two of these pathways are non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) and theta-mediated end-joining (TMEJ). These pathways leave genetic alterations in their repair products, a form of DNA...

Purpose – The entropy algorithm is a recently developed statistic for quantifying the complexity of time series data. To date, research of biomechanics and motor control discussed whether entropy algorithms could be used as a convenient tool to identify healthy gait function, to evaluate outcomes of physical therapies and to monitor the...

Retrieving actionable information from large datasets is increasingly computationally expensive due to the current trend of ever-increasing dataset sizes. Reducing dataset sizes with dimensionality reduction techniques is often necessary for statistical analysis techniques, such as classification, to be computationally feasible. Most...

With the fast-growing electricity demand, challenges arise affecting the reliability and the quality of the distribution network. The Dutch DSOs could expand the network capacity, but it is not sure if the network can be expanded fast enough. Network expansion will result in higher total consumer costs and if the network expansion rate is too...

Significant work has been done in the field of computer vision focusing on learning and clustering methods. The use of improved learning methods has paved a way forward for researches to explore various theories to improve existing methods. One among various learning methods is Hierarchical learning which has showed impressive benefits and...

The Meuse river has been made navigable for ships by the construction of a cascade of seven weirs. At only two weirs hydropower facilities exist. This implies the full hydropower potential of the Meuse is not utilized. Rijkswaterstaat only provides additional permits when fish friendly turbines are used, or when the cumulative fish mortality...

Current state-of-the-art airline planning models are required to decrease models either in size or complexity due to computational limitations, limiting the <br/>operational applicability to problems of representative sizes. Models return suboptimal solutions, especially when confronted with factors of uncertainty. Considering the growing...

The flash visual evoked potential (FVEP) is an electrical potential recorded with electroencephalogram (EEG) at the occipital cortex. Current FVEP assessment may be elaborated with the acquisition of stimulus response (SR) relation of the visual system. A drawback of this adjustment is the time required for data acquisition. This study aimed to...

Vibration energy harvesters are especially interesting to use in an environment where there is one dominant vibration frequency present because then the harvesters can be designed to resonate at that specific frequency. To spread out the power yield over more frequencies a multi-modal harvester can be used which can resonate at multiple...

The ever increasing demand for better and cheaper electronic devices, sensors, optical components, etc. fuels innovation in nanometer precision positioning machines. However, the overall architecture of these machines has not changed much over the past years. A huge improvement in the architecture is currently impossible due to a crucial element...

Introduction: Pancreatic adenocarcinoma holds one of the worst prognosis of all known malignancies. Local treatment options for patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer may increase tumor control and benefit patient survival. This study aimed to test the feasibility of a possible new treatment method utilizing intratumoral holmium...

<br/>Being a safe and healthy alternative for polluting and space-inefficient motorised vehicles, cycling can strongly improve living conditions in urban areas. Idling in front of traffic lights is seen as one of the major inconveniences of commuting by bicycle. By giving personalised speed advice, the probability of catching a green light can...
