In current practice, the feasibility of the project goal is only assessed by project owners at the start of the project, up until the final investment decision (FID) is made. The final investment decision involves the decision of the owner to continue the project into the project execution phases. After the FID is made, the project goal...

Sherpa Space Inc., a South Korean startup located in Daejeon, aimed to develop an innovative home appliance capable of growing high-quality medicinal and edible plants by combining aeroponic agriculture with their own patented lighting technology.
To do so, they envisioned a whole service behind the device, which included supplying consumers...

Measurements in the frequency range below 30 MHz, key to a better understanding of the origins of our universe, are one of the last unexplored areas of radio astronomy. Low frequency measurements suffer greatly from disturbance from man-made signals. Therefore, satellite missions are proposed which use the Moon as a shield from these...

Research on laser communication technology for satellites has led to a sufficient understanding of this technology to start working on commercial applications. In this work a design is proposed for a lasercom system for CubeSats, a type of nanosatellites that is used increasingly often for commercial missions. The goal of this design is to offer...

To bring down the number of traffic accidents and increase people’s mobility companies, such as Robot Engineering Systems (RES) try to put automated vehicles on the road. RES is developing the WEpod, a shuttle capable of autonomously navigating through mixed traffic. This research has been done in cooperation with RES to improve the localization...

An accurate prediction of propeller hull interaction is an important step in the design of a new vessel. The prediction of full-scale flow phenomena, which eliminates scale effects, is becoming available due to increasing computational power. However, the complexity of full-scale CFD calculations combined
with a lack of validation data...

In this master thesis, the recently introduced Mobile Model Predictive Control (MoMPC) approach for open water systems with uncertain dynamics is discussed, where there are no sensors or actuators installed in the system that would allow for a fully automatic operation. MoMPC is a configuration of Model Predictive Control (MPC) that explicitly...

A conventional dynamic positioning system is used to control vessel motions in the horizontal plane, i.e. surge, sway and yaw. However, the safety and operability of several offshore operations can be increased when also the roll motion is actively controlled, especially in beam seas. A control system model is proposed for combined thruster...

With the arrival of the Eurocode, the calculations regarding shear resistance, have become increasingly conservative compared to former concrete standards. For example in Voorschriften Beton 1974 (VB 74), a former concrete standard, a shear resistance combination of concrete, stirrups and prestress was allowed. Whereas the Eurocode assumes the...

The wind energy industry is growing significantly, which increases the number of decommissioned wind turbines as well. The blades of wind turbines are mainly made of fiber reinforced thermoset polymer composite, which is difficult to recycle. Most blades currently end up in landfill or incineration which is a waste of this high value material....

In this thesis the differences between the monohull and semi-submersible are investigated. For a general heavy lift crane operation and its operational profile, the difference is performance and total cost are calculated. These are used to determine the turning point, the point where the semi-submersible is more favourable for a heavy lift crane...

Currently, sand retaining rubble mound structures are often constructed with geotextiles, lining the interface between the core material and the sandfill. These geotextiles are placed to make sure the sand from the sandfill is not flushed out through the core by incoming hydraulic forces from the surrounding water. It is proposed that...

Complex motions are generally accepted as movements which consists of at least 2 Degrees of Freedom (DoFs) actuated in a coordinated manner, which takes more than one practice session to be mastered, and that are ecologically valid (see Wulf et al. 2002 for a clear statement).

The techniques to teach and re-teach (also, (re-)learn) a...

One of the biggest downsides to the growing fashion industry is its unsustainable and wasteful character. Currently, the fashion industry produces, distributes and utilizes clothing in a linear way, making it among the main industries responsible for the negative environmental and social aspects of sustainability (Madsen, Hartlin, Perumalpillai,...

The residential sector is responsible for over 55% of the natural gas consumption in the Netherlands. In the climate accord of Paris, the Netherlands came to an agreement with the rest of the world leaders to limit the overall temperature rise by reducing the consumption of and by switching away from carbon-based fuels. The gas mining induced...

New floating wind turbine designs are needed to reduce production costs and to increase mass production feasibility. The TetraSpar floating wind turbine achieves these goals by being constructed using components highly suitable for standardization and industrialization. The design makes use of a suspended submerged counter weight to obtain a low...
