Motivation: Speed sailing can be seen as the ultimate challenge for a sailing craft. Kiteboarders have recently shown to be capable of extremely high sailing speeds using a relatively cheap and simple combination of a kite and a board. They proved to be the world’s fastest sailing crafts during a record attempt in October 2008, in September 2009...

New space debris mitigation guidelines require satellites in low Earth orbit to de-orbit within 25 years after end of life. This effectively limits the orbital altitude of conventional CubeSat satellites to 400-700 km. For CubeSats employing the generic inflatable de-orbit device discussed here, this range is extended to 910 km by increasing the...

Thermoplastic blades offer a variety of advantages to the wind energy industry, but also a few major drawbacks. One of these is the weak fiber to matrix bond in traditional melt processed thermoplastic composites. Because fatigue is dependent on a strong interface, and it is a driving requirement for wind turbine blades, research has been...

Polymers and composite materials have replaced many conventional materials (wood, metals, natural fibres) in the past decades. Cost reduction, productivity increase, weight saving and better mechanical properties are the main reasons for this development. In recent years however, there is a renewed interest in natural fibres, especially as...

A test method to determine the tensile properties of Upilex-R is described. This test method proves satisfactory for testing at room temperature. Testing at temperatures above the glass transition point of the polyimide appears to be difficult due to the small maximum displacement of the grips. With the aid of a comparison between the tensile...

New wind turbines for placement in the urban environment appeared in the recent years. These urban wind turbines are still expensive; they produce electricity against higher costs then the current consumer’s price for electricity in the Netherlands. Another drawback for most of the new wind turbines is that they are too small for placement upon...
