This thesis aims to assess how different convex penalty functions can be used in orbit determination methods and to design an algorithm to test them under different conditions.
Most traditional Precise Orbit Determination (POD) algorithms use the Least-Squares (LSQ) method to minimise the misfit between a set of modelled and actual...

Sea level rise poses challenges to the tidal inlet systems of the Wadden Sea, including the barrier islands. If no measures are taken, the shorelines of the islands will retreat and the basins may drown. In the Ameland Inlet, the Boschplaat at the eastern tip of Ameland and Bornrif at the western tip of Terschelling are currently shrinking.

The structuring of polymers on the micro and nanoscale is performed largely by lithographic techniques, which require complex steps and suffer from geometrical and scaling limits. Techniques such as Nanoimprint Lithography and Hot Embossing are attractive alternatives as they can produce high quality nanoscale structures with a high throughput....

Heat transfer is important in many applications. For instance, due to the decrease in size of electronics, it
becomes more necessary to have efficient and smaller cooling systems. In order to increase the effect of the
cooling liquids used, it might be interesting to add extra solid particles with a high conductivity, to possibly

Two-phase thermal control systems are used for payloads that require temperature stability under high and fluctuating heat output. However, the complex interaction between the two phases in a flow makes it hard to predict the performance of such a system. The goal was to develop a numerical model able to predict the transient behaviour of such a...

Inadequate treatment of wastewater effluent is one of the major point sources of pollution of organic micropollutants (OMPs) into aquatic environments. Wastewater treatment plants need to be upgraded to reduce OMP contamination. Recently, the combination of pre-ozonation and granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration has been proposed as a...

Condensation trails, or contrails in short, are the white lines that can often be seen trailing high-altitude jet aircraft. Due to their interference with the local energy balance of the atmosphere they contribute to anthropogenic climate change. Research has shown strategies with great contrail mitigation potential at relatively small fuel and...

Autonomous grasping is a key requisite for the autonomy of robots.
However, grasping of unknown objects in domestic environments is difficult due to the presence of unpredictability and clutter.
In this paper, a novel algorithm capable of finding an unobstructed grasping pose on unknown regular object shapes in cluttered environments is...

Transmission electron microscopy is a powerful and commonly used tool to study nanoparticles, nanowires and 2D materials. It provides static information from the sample with atomic resolution, in high vacuum and at ambient temperature. However, in real processes, the environment is often different and dynamic.

At the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital/Dutch Cancer Institute (NKI-AvL) in Amsterdam, inter-fractional anatomical changes during the course of radiotherapy are monitored using cone beam CT scans, taken prior to irradiation. These scans are assessed visually, and the fractions are scored according to a 'traffic light protocol'. Based on the...

One of the leading perspectives from literature is that decisions about investments should be made based on a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis and on a cyber-risk assessment. However, many organizations do not undertake this sophisticated analyses due to the lack of available data about costs, benefits and the impact and likelihood of attacks...

Miniaturization and cost reduction of hardware components have created a trend in the space industry where the traditional centralized computer is being replaced by distributed computer architecture. However, this trend comes with a cost: the on-board software complexity of the space missions has increased. The complexity has origins in the...
