To increase performance of air-to-air missile guidance, a novel guidance law is developed using reinforcement learning methods. This guidance law is based on behavior obtained from optimal control methods and subsequently aims to approximate its performance. The study compares the developed guidance law to a traditional guidance law and optimal...

Climate change is a major global problem which is related to the increase in greenhouse gasses (GHG) emissions according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a potential solution to this problem. However, the implementation of CCS seems to be challenging. The port of Rotterdam also intended...

A robot swarm of zebros (Dutch: ZEs Benige RObots) is being developed at the TU Delft, with the purpose of forming a large self-deploying sensor network that survey remote locations without the need for any pre-existing infrastructure, or be used for evaluating swarming algorithms in the field. Towards this goal, zebros need to be able to...

This thesis proposes a model for charge scheduling of electric vehicles in last-mile distribution to investigate the impact of charge schedule optimisation on charging cost. A mixed integer problem formulation is proposed that considers labour, battery degradation and time-variable energy cost. The benefit of implementing charge schedule...

The rollercoaster Baron 1898 in the Efteling is a unique and thrilling experience. However, the Safety Department observes an unwanted phenomenon: Occasionally, guests do not safely store their small personal belongings, such as phones, which then fall out during the ride. The result is a lost or broken phone or other personal valuable. Not...

The increased usage of Electric Vehicles and Renewable Energy Sources causes issues regarding the balancing of the electricity grid. To avoid investment costs, Distribution System Operators desire flexibility solutions. One of these flexibility solutions is the usage of the battery of the Electric Vehicle as an electricity source. This concept...

Recently, Offshore Wind Turbines (OWT) have attracted great attention in an effort to make a shift from fossil-based energy sources towards an enhanced sustainable and renewable energy production. In order to achieve the renewables targets and reduce the cost of wind energy, OWTs are consistently increasing in size. Therefore, research has...

To enable weight reduction of skin stiffened structures in aerospace applications they can be loaded in the post-buckling regime during service. However, to do this safely the fatigue delamination growth behaviour of post-buckled skin stiffened structures must be well understood. To this end, skin-stiffener separation of single stringer...

Based on a literature review and expert interviews, a conceptual model is drafted, explaining and visualising successful public-private partnership practice regarding spatial development. Five hypotheses were derived from this model, focussing at the flexibility of the building programmes and the project's phasing, clear project and actor...

Symmetric and nonsymmetric Macdonald polynomials associated to root systems are very general families of orthogonal polynomials in multiple variables. Their definition is quite complex, but in certain cases one can define so-called interpolation polynomials that have a surprisingly simple definition and are related to the Macdonald polynomials...

In today's digital world, customers give their opinions on a product that they have purchased online in the form of reviews. The industry is interested in these reviews, and wants to know about which topics their clients write, such that the producers can improve products on specific aspects. Topic models can extract the main topics from large...

An analysis of attitude controller concepts, including four attitude flight controllers, for the re-entry of the HORUS-2b. The four concerning attitude flight controller concepts are the benchmark Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR), Model predictive Controller, Incremental Non-linear Dynamic Inversion (INDI) and Sliding Mode Controller. Each...

In 2022, ESA plans to launch the JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) mission which will spend at least three years making detailed observations of Jupiter and three of its largest moons, Ganymede, Callisto and Europa. These moons are currently a hot topic within the science community as their interiors might include oceans consisting of liquid...

Metamaterials are a new class of materials where the properties crucially depend on the design of the unit cell that is periodically repeated in space. In this study a new metamaterial unit cell concept has been proposed, inspired by a class of space structures known as deployable masts. The ability of these structures to contract to a fraction...

The European financial sector is a frequent victim of banking malware leading to massive losses. It appears that not all customers’ banks are equally attractive targets among cybercriminals who deploy banking malware. This research established a comprehensive regression model explaining why certain banks are more attractive to cybercriminals....

The Hondsbossche Dunes is a seven-kilometre-long dune, beach and shoreface nourishment that serves as a primary flood defence since 2015. In addition to its protective function, the Hondsbossche Dunes stimulate ecological habitat development in the coastal area, in line with Ecoshape's 'Building with Nature'-approach. Its morphologic development...

In the European Union Road freight transport volume is expected to grow 78% between 2000 and 2030, which results in more trucks on the road network. The worldwide estimated trend shows an increase of 150 million freight vehicles and an increase of 240 million passenger vehicles. The growth of both vehicle classes will have a major impact on the...

In the oil and gas industry the occurrence of slug flow in flowlines and risers can cause operational problems. Such flowline-riser systems are used to transport the oil and/or gas from the location of the wells to a production platform, where the fluids might be separated into single phases. Slug flow conditions imposefluctuations in the...
