The amount of research and development in smart materials is increasing every year. These smart materials offer a solution to integrated and distributed actuation and sensing. Pressure sensors, acoustic transducers, deformable mirrors, micro-robotics and stiffness control of flapping wings are some applicationswhere these smart materials show...

Due to a low restoring force as well as lack of damping, the roll motion of a
vessel is usually the motion with the highest amplitude of all degrees of
freedom. Therefore, in history many have tried to stabilize rolling ship
starting with Watts in 1883. He described the damping of the roll motion by
having a group of men running...

Contrary to a breakwater outer slope, rear-slope revetment does not have to withstand breaking waves. However, generally, an equal dimensioned revetment is used on both the inner- and outer slope. Although with low-crested breakwaters severe overtopping occurs, the application of similarly sized armour on both sides still results in an over...

Wood is an important building material that has been used for thousands of years throughout the world. It is the most widely used building material and due to its characteristics suitable for a wide range of applications. Still, for the last century steel and concrete have been the materials of choice for large buildings. Part of the reason for...

Dams are an essential part of the Dutch flood defence works to protect the hinterland from flooding by the sea. Sand closures are the construction of closure dams with sand as the main building material. The rising and falling tide generates a current through the closure gap, which increases in strength as the gap becomes smaller. This current...

This research determines the value of local electrical energy storage. This value on one hand consists of a value for the DSO, which is the deferral of investments in their grid. On the other hand, the value of trading with these storage unit is determined. The trading value is constrained by the usage by the DSO.

The specific issue researched in this thesis is correcting some inaccuracies that occur when the robot is polishing
certain shapes. The biggest challenge is to mathematically describe this phenomenon in order to find
an appropriate correction. Since there are a lot of influences in the process (friction, movement, impact, degrees
of...

Women inequality is a common practice in today’s world which is global in nature. Focusing on a developing country like India, violence against women, needless to say, is a grave concern. Crime in the form of rapes, molestation, and eve-teasing, has made public spaces fearful, and women have developed the fear of being a part of these places....

Despite great strides made in understanding and modelling Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRPs), their full potential is held back by the inability to accurately predict failure. Contrary to past attempts focused on isolated application of stress-strain and fracture mechanics based failure theories, this research builds upon the existing framework by...

In this work the residual-based variational multiscale method is presented in a discontinuous Galerkin framework. This so-called ‘DG-RVMS’ strategy is developed, extensively verified, and tested on a more complex case.

The proposed DG-RVMS paradigm consists of three principle components. First, the perelement weak form is coupled by...

Nearly 50% of the Dutch gardens is paved and this number is ever increasing. This negatively affects the environment. It contributes to biodiversity loss since less space is available as a habitat for flora, fauna and ecosystems. Secondly, the paved gardens do not allow the rainwater to infiltrate the soil. As a consequence, the rainwater is...

Introduction. Increased joint resistance to imposed movement (“muscle hypertonia”) is a common finding in patients with an upper motor neuron syndrome, following stroke. Contributors to muscle hypertonia are of neural (increased reflex activity) and non-neural (altered visco-elastic properties) nature. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy ...

There are many environmental and industrial contexts with dense particle laden flows. In the literature several numerical and experimental studies have been performed to understand the effects of the particles on the mean flow. Many are the cases where these effects can be modelled by an effective suspension viscosity associated with an increase...
