This research considers using center of mass (CoM) height variation as an input for balance control on a humanoid robot. Traditional balance strategies for humanoid robots are taking a step, control of the center of pressure (CoP) location, a result of the ‘ankle strategy’, and changing the angular momentum about the CoM, for example by a ‘hip...

Future consumer products, medical devices and manufacturing processes can benefit from systems with a high number and a high density of individually controlled actuators that are flexible and use little energy, materials and space. These systems with a high count and high density of actuators can be addressed as distributed actuation systems. In...

There are several methods to perform fatigue assessment as described by the Eurocode 3 and the International Institute of Welding (IIW). The codes establish the relation between stress ranges and their respective number of cycles until failure of the detail. This method is called S-N curves, however this is based mainly on nominal stresses. A...

To aid in the continued effort of making unmanned flight safer, this paper presents the experimenting effort towards determining aerodynamic forces on a off-the-shelf quad-rotor under compromised circumstances. For the first time an Incremented Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion controller is used for compromised flight in wind tunnel conditions. For...

We have tried to create a bin-packing algorithm that assigns items from a customer-order to totes such that the amount of totes is minimized. Analyzing the bin-packing algorithm that was used before this thesis had been written, taught us that xxx.xx% of the customer-orders was packed non optimal. In this thesis four algorithms are applied to...

Compressive failure mechanisms of fiber reinforced polymers represent a significant challenge when accurately modeling common industrial problems. This thesis aims to deliver a physically representative computational framework capable of simulating Open Hole Compression. A novel approach, the Floating Node Method is adopted for modeling...

This report includes all the research conducted during the last phase of the Master of Science Building Engineering within the faculty of Civil Engineering. The main aim is to form a strategy for designing demountable unitized curtain walls; one that could actually be used in practice by future engineers and architects. This is why this...

The primary goal of this report is to provide a general overview of offline change-point literature as it is known today. Change-point methods are important statistical problems, where we are interested in determining whenever a certain data-set changes in structure. Furthermore, the term "off-line" is meant to indicate that the data itself is...

The Delft University of Technology is developing an MDO tool for the conceptual design of transport aircraft. However, the current program is not able to investigate the influence of the undercarriage design on the weight, drag and geometry of transport aircraft. This research proposes a new design method for the undercarriage, for which a new...

Baggage handling systems (BHS), are complex and integrate systems hidden within an airport. In this thesis, a model is developed which can generate BHS concept design automatically. This means that the model defines the type and amount of equipment needed and is able to develop a 3D model that can be used for volume reservation. The model takes...

Current studies about crystallization kinetics of polymers are aimed at Differential Scan- ning Calorimetry (DSC), characterized by constant conditions of temperature, cooling and heating rate. This is of limited use to industry, as non constant cooling/ heating rates occur during most manufacturing processes. This research is aimed at predict-...

BACKGROUND.Implant-associated infection (IAI) is a rising complication in bone-related medical treatments using metal implants. Preventive measures, such as implant surfaces with integrated antibacterial properties, are hence required. The emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens has led to a growing interest in inorganic nanoparticles as...

In low- and middle income countries there is a need for safe and affordable high quality surgical equipment. Nowadays, electrosurgical units are part of the standard equipment in operation theatres worldwide, since electrosurgery comes with many advantages such as reduced blood loss. However, the technology of electrosurgery also carries several...

The Submerged Floating Tunnel (SFT), also called an Archimedes Bridge, is a state of the art solution for crossing deep and large waters. The concept of a SFT has been around for many decades. However, none has still been build up till today. A general literature study showed a number of ‘blank spots’ which still need to be researched before...

This thesis explores how strategic and communication design can have an influence on the adoption process of blockchain or distributed ledger technology. It does so through dividing the thesis into four parts: Discover, Define, Develop and Deliver. In short: Discover: What is found is that distributed ledger development is a technology push...

This thesis provides insight into how the design approach, also known as ‘Design Thinking’ could be implemented in infrastructure planning processes. This is done with the objective to prevent premature convergence, which means, too early choosing for a solution by which other valuable alternatives are ‘killed off.’ By preventing premature...

Vision based control allows Micro Air Vehicles (MAV) to move autonomously in GPS-denied environments, for example in indoor applications. An open issue in this field is landing on an unknown platform. The difficulty in visual control w.r.t. such an unknown platform, is a lack of scale. Without knowledge of the scale of offsets and object sizes ...

Bathymetry strongly affects nearshore hydrodynamics that drive sediment transport. However, recent bed level information is not always available, especially not simultaneously resolved in space and time. Time series of radar backscatter images can be used to retrieve bed levels in the intertidal area with the so-called Temporal Waterline...

Cavitary bone defects are common in orthopedic surgery and may be present after curettage of benign tumors or as tumor-like lesions. Bone graft substitutes, especially from biocompatible materials, can be used as a solution for lling up those defects. However, these cavitary bone defects differ in size and
location. It would, therefore, be...

To realize the shift towards a Circular Economy, products should stay usable as long as possible. Maintaining products is the most efficient way of retaining their desired level of performance. This is called Product care. Product care can be understood as any action that helps to prolong the lifetime of a product. The aim of this thesis is to...
