The Atomic Force Microscope (afm) is a small scale measuring device, with a lot of benefits over other existing measuring techniques. Unfortunately, measurement speed is not one of them. Many have tried and succeeded to improve the measurement speed, but there is still room for improvement.
By passively lowering the Q-factor, a measurement...

Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) frameworks, capable of performing overall aircraft design studies become too complex to be comprehended by a single team of experts. Therefore, there is an increasing need to develop distributed analysis frameworks in which both tools and experts are integrated in a single network. This poses great...

Within this report is described the process of designing a new Zebro robot for the TU Delft Robotics Institute. Zebro is a six-legged robot specifically intended to become one of the first truly autonomous swarming robots on earth. The specific aim of this project was to design Zebro to become ready for series production, and to become a robotic...

Terminals are encouraged to redesign their operations to facilitate future growth of container freight. Routing of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) can contribute significantly to this trend. Traditional routing, as implemented in real-life terminals, uses a topology of paths. To improve flexibility and scalability of the AGV system, a promising...

This research concerns the analysis of the organisation of transport of cut flowers from Dutch growers. The performance of transport in the current supply chain is analysed with a focus on the total transport costs, and the service level which is primarily defined by the lead time of products. Based on the assessment of the current performance...

A world without digital images is unthinkable in this era of information and communication technology. Billions of images are created, shared and ultimately enjoyed by users every day. However, digital images are sensitive to a wide variety of distortions during the delivery mechanism it goes through. Any of the distortions that can arise during...

Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) is a sight threatening condition. In this type of RD a break in the retina allows liquefied vitreous to enter the subretinal space and the retina to detach. The prognosis concerning the patients' visual ability is better if the RD has not progressed to the macula. The patient is given a posturing advice of...

The diesel engine plays a dominant role in the field of (maritime) transportation and is expected to do so in the coming years. Depletion of fossil fuels and environmental impact are relevant concerns, widely acknowledged by the international community. NOx contributes to acid deposition and eutrophication. Regulations on NOx emissions become...

A growth in the Dutch food retail is observed. People eat and drink significantly more. 50% of all food is bought in supermarkets and every day over 4 million people in the Netherlands buy their groceries in the supermarket (Rabobank, 2016) (CBL, 2016). However, the current supermarket cannot exist in the future. In its current state, it faces...

In optical imaging, image quality is not only determined by the system itself but also by the media in which light traverse. Differences in the refraction index of the media encountered by a light wavefront produces phase aberrations which distort the image received from the original object. Currently, there are two main approaches for solving...

Ice flow, forced by gravity is governed by the Full Stokes (FS) equations, which are computationally intensive to solve due to their non-linearity. Therefore, it has been unavoidable to approximate the FS equations when modeling growth and collapse of an ice sheet-shelf system, which requires simulating many thousands of years. However, the most...

The main research question that this research seeks to answer is: What are the factors that are perceived to be important for the performance of venturing units at Dutch distribution network operators? Factors found in the literature that impact the performance of this venturing units can be divided into three parts: factors from an...

Extreme weather conditions seem to occur stronger and more frequently due to climate change. Very expensive technology is used to predict them, which results problematic when they have to be used in less developed countries. An alternative could be to employ digital sensors, such as phone cameras or existing webcam infrastructures, widely...
