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...

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...

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....

Accurate cost estimations are important for ship production companies such as Royal IHC. The research discussed is based on a feasibility study for a CBR cost estimation method. The current cost estimation method at IHC is a top-down price-to-win analogy cost estimation. This method uses mainly the weight of the ship as an input variable for the...

Inner cities increasingly suffer from congestion and pollution. Besides being a nuisance, these traffic jams cost society an enormous sum of money annually (est. €3 billion in 2015). Still many businesses use unwieldy commercial vans in tiny, crowded city streets.

Urban Arrow (UA) offers slender alternatives in the form of high quality...

Electroluminescence is light emission of phosphor when it is placed in a strong electric field. This field is created by placing a dielectric (non conductive) layer between two electrodes. The field strength is affected by the voltage, distance between electrodes and the dielectric properties of the dielectric layer.

There lies an opportunity for significant cost savings in the installation of subsea cables in offshore wind farms which is why the current work proposes a state-of-the-art method for monitoring the cable during installation. The proposed method enables offshore crew to look through the water with the use of augmented reality. To this end a real...
