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...

In hyperspectral (HS) imaging, for every pixel a spectrum of wavelengths is captured. These spectra represent material properties, i.e. the spectral signatures. So, classification of HS imagery is based on material properties. This thesis describes a framework to perform pixelwise classification of HS images of a fixed scene subject to varying...

With the rise of multidrug resistant pathogens and Hospital Acquired infections other ways of disinfection should be considered. The growing infections rate causes economic burden due to hospitalization of infected patients where as hospitalization can lead to more infections due to cross-contamination. Current techniques in Infection Prevention...

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...

Large water motion inside the moonpool of vessels operating in waves can be excited by pressure fluctuations produced by external waves and vessel motion. Extreme consequences of this effect may include injuries for crew members, and damages to deck equipment resulting in downtime for the vessel. The accepted method to predict this non-linear...

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.

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...
