The Eigenmode Distortion (EMD) analysis is a novel method for objective evaluation of simulator motion cueing fidelity, developed at Delft University of Technology. It expresses the distortions of the perceived motion cues in terms of the dynamic modes of a linear model of the vehicle and has been applied to assess rotorcraft simulations. This...

The consortium Projectorganisatie Uitbreiding Maasvlakte (PUMA), consisting out of Van Oord and Boskalis, constructed a hard sea defence for the protection of Maasvlakte 2, which is the expansion of the Port of Rotterdam. This hard sea defence consists of a Dynamic Rock Slope (DRS) with a Block Dam (BD) situated in front of it. The BD is build...

Space mission complexity is constantly increasing, therefore there is a growing demand for highly accurate and fast trajectory design and simulation tools. Some astrodynamics applications, such as planetary protection simulations, require millions of total simulated years to quantify certain probabilities with a high confidence level. It is...

Firing industrial installations, like boilers, with a cogeneration gas turbine instead of a classic burner have several beneficial aspects. A cogeneration system allows for a more efficient utilization of energy and lowered emissions. What makes such a system especially interesting is that the revenue of the generated electrical power can...

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Replacing teeth is required, since neighboring teeth can move and reposition in undesired positions if there is an empty space. A dental implant consists of three parts, a dental prosthetic (crown), an abutment and the implant which is fixated in the bone.

Dental implants are placed...

Instrumented treadmills and perturbations of the treadmill are commonly used for gait analysis and can provide real time biomechanical information and feedback of gait patterns and abnormalities. Force plates in the treadmill are combined with motion capture data and fed into a musculoskeletal model. High accuracy of the force plates is needed...

Globalization is heaving its impact on many field. For the field of warehousing this development, in combination with the actual shortage of labor, means that many warehouse owners are forced to reduce their warehouse costs in order to stay competitive with warehouses in low-wage countries. On the other side the warehouse owners are pulled by...

Additive manufacturing allows material structuring, supporting the fabrication of multiple-level structures or metamaterials. Through the lens of classical stress reduction, nature’s cellular solid structures feature stress-homogenizing nodal topologies. Avian long bones are an example. Research into the mechanics of open cell cellular solids...

Municipal and industrial wastewater contains a significant amount of dissolved nitrogen. This is the results of the organic protein degradation and of the large employment of nitrogen (N), usually in the form of ammonia (NH3), in the industry. Currently, nitrogen is removed in wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) by means...

Within aircraft component MRO industry, companies providing availability contracts are challenged by inherently unpredictable demand patterns and complex time crucial operations. Most prevailing academic literature within the MRO industry has focused on availability models or operations management in repair shops in the past. This study focuses...

In modern society, there is an ever increasing need for high-quality Earth imagery for various applications. This can be broken up into a need for increased spatial and temporal resolution, as well as a necessity for decreased cost of this imagery. The Deployable Space Telescope (DST) was proposed by Delft University of Technology in 2015 and it...

The PocketQube is an emerging satellite class, which pushes the miniaturization of space technology beyond the well-established CubeSats, promising rapid design-to-orbit cycles while lowering the cost of accessing space. A showstopper in the success story of nano- and picosatellites are their high mission failure rates. Environmental testing...

Recently published health reports from governments of western countries and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide insights on health benefits of being physically active. Performing physical activity of moderate intensity is, amongst others, associated with a smaller risk on symptoms of depression, cardiovascular disease and diabetes....

The telecommunication sector is characterised by a huge energy consumption that is still increasing. Mobile network operators seek for new operating techniques to minimise their energy costs and their carbon footprint. One of these energy saving techniques is the use of energy efficient collaborations among the base stations (antennas) in their...

Offshore floating wind turbines are one of the newest technologies in the renewable markets today. The world’s first floating wind farm, the Hywind Scotland Pilot Park, was commissioned in October 2017 and has been competitive with fixed bottom offshore wind turbines. There is a global push to make more renewable energy available, but less...

The summer and autumn of 2018 showed the negative effects of both low-flow conditions and bed degradation over the last century on the river functions of the Dutch Rhine. These resulted in record-breaking water levels, extreme low navigation depth and subsequently nautical problems. As climate change will increase the inter-annual variability of...

Current yard crane models used for studies on various logistic processes in container terminals involving automated yard cranes do not take automation systems into account. The operational container handling performance of automated yard cranes are therefore inaccurately predicted by current models. To avoid logistical problems and financial...

In spite of the fact that there are many advantages of alkali activated materials (also called geopolymers) over the cement-based materials, geopolymer concrete has been used in the past for construction purposes on a very limited level. Among the many advantages of geopolymers compared with the cement-based materials is less CO2 emission, it...
