Photovoltaic devices are a widely available, long lasting means of generating sustainable energy. Unfortunately, the integration of such devices into society is to date still limited. This is in part due to the much less than optimal efficiency of conversion of sunlight to electricity, but also by the physical limitations of integrating...

DNA is packaged together with proteins, such as histones, in the nucleus of a cell to form a fiber called chromatin. The nature of this packaging, the "chromatin structure", is essential for proper cell functioning. This is illustrated by the fact that perturbating chromatin can be associated with many diseases. Hence, artificial perturbation of...

During today’s aircraft descents, Air Traf?c Control (ATC) commands aircraft to descend to specific altitudes and directions to maintain separation and spacing from other aircraft. When the aircraft is instructed to maintain an intermediate descent altitude, it requires engine thrust to maintain speed, leading to increased fuel burn and noise...

A method for designing an Enterprise information system, which is based on an implementation independent model of the organization, has been developed. This model, also called an ontological model, consists of both implementation independent business processes and implementation independent information processes. An Enterprise information system...

This thesis studies the possibilities to diversify a human environment through means of design. Environmental diversity is primarily characterised through naming variables, as described in Chapter 3. Subsequently, an attempt is made to name their extreme values and – if possible – to identify an absolute value that may serve as a zero-point,...

Dynamic scheduling problems are ubiquitous: traffic lights, elevators, planning of manufacturing plants, air traffic control, etc. Tasks have to be put on a timeline as smart as possible to reach certain goals. These goals may be related to production costs, the use of (scarce) resources, deadlines. These problems have often been regarded...

In recent years, great progress has been made in both the optimisation of the seakeeping behaviour of fast ships and the development of efficient numerical methods for computation of the seakeeping behaviour of ships in general. The study presented in the thesis aims to integrate both developments. First, the key aspects of the seakeeping...

Unavailability of technical systems, such as aircraft, is expensive. Technical systems require maintenance to prevent and to remedy defects that cause unavailability. Users of technical systems usually bear the consequences of the risk of unavailability, in particular the loss of productivity. This is based on the presumption that users are best...

This study focuses on the processes through which the rules and regulations that govern European electricity markets - and inherently, their integration process - are established. So far, European policy makers have largely followed a 'trial-and-error' approach to finding an appropriate regulatory mode (process) for dealing effectively with...

High-tech systems play a key role in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturing. Two of these systems are presented in this thesis. The first system is range imaging, which is a measuring technique for determining three-dimensional shape. The second system is visual servoing, which is a method of adaptively controlling a mechanical system by...

Fossil fuels still dominate the energy supply in modern societies. The resources, however, are depleting. Therefore, other energy sources are to be exploited further within this century. Biomass is one of the practically CO2 neutral, renewable contributors to the future energy production. Nowadays many modern, high efficiency (combined) power...

Fibre-Metal-Laminates have excellent properties for aerospace applications, with GLARE as an example. The metal layers inside the laminate provide permanent plastic deformations for the whole laminate; in principle Fibre-Metal-Laminates can be formed with common sheet metal forming processes. The difference between monolithic sheet metal and...

This thesis focuses on the harbour oscillations that occasionally occur in certain basins of the Port of Rotterdam. Such standing waves, called seiches, need to be taken into account in this harbour area for the design of water protection works (such as dykes) and for the closure management of a movable storm surge barrier, located along the...

In 1972, a number of Dutch landscape ecologists united in the Netherlands Society for Landscape Ecology (in Dutch: Werkgemeenschap Landschapsecologisch Onderzoek, WLO). They formed a theory discussion group, aimed at finding a scientific foundation for nature conservation. Scientific here meaning: to be able to predict the future, on the basis...
