Enceladus has all the ingredients to support life in its ocean and is therefore a good place to start looking for extraterrestrial life in our Solar System. To explore Enceladus, a probe is needed that autonomously navigates the extreme, icy and unknown environment. Multiple robotic systems are proposed to explore Enceladus. The concept to be...

This research aims to design and simulate a hinge consisting of shape-memory alloys and polymers, which can be actuated along two axes. The hinge consists of a shape-memory body that is actuated externally by shape-memory alloy springs. To achieve maximum deformation, two small single hinges are made, of which the body has the shape of a plate...

mart materials are already often used as actuator or sensors, as well in soft grippers as other fields. However, the application of thermoresponsive smart materials as actuator is still a potential field. As electroactive polymers and shape memory alloys are commonly used thermoresponsive smart materials for actuators in soft grippers, a novel...

The success of offshore wind farm installations is often related to the costs and time taken to be completed. Current installation strategies require several critical offshore lifts for the completion of a single wind turbine, as in most cases each component gets installed separately. This is time-consuming and has a direct link to the cost of...

The demand of offshore wind energy has increased enormously in the last decade, and continues to do so in the foreseeable future. The monopile will remain the most important foundation structure. There is however not yet a durable solution for its main disadvantage; the under water sound radiation during installation. In this report a new,...

Traditional kinematic joints used in large scale machinery consist of multiple rigid parts in contact, which causes wear and imposes the need for lubrication and maintenance. Compliant joints have the potential to eliminate these problems as they require less maintenance. However, these joints are not studied for large scale applications with...

Grabs are essential in the process of unloading a bulk carrier by grabbing bulk material such as iron ore from the cargo hold. Due to varying operational conditions, the consistency and the amount of payload can vary significantly. One of the largest varying operational conditions is the occurrence of irregular bulk surfaces. Therefore, it is...

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) in combination with an One Factor At a Time (OFAT) experimental simulation plan were employed to investigate the effect of a selection of factors on the mixing performance of a double shaft, batch-type paddle mixer. Most influential factors on the mixing performance of the paddle mixer are desired for...

Wind turbines have proven to be an essential part for the green energy mix. However, the focus was mainly on the horizontal axis wind turbines whereas the vertical axis wind turbine did not receive that amount of attention. In this work a straight-bladed vertical axis wind turbine (SB-VAWT) is explored which can temporary adjusts its rotor...

New trends in the offshore wind industry show that wind farms are being built further onto sea. This also means that turbines have to be installed in deeper waters resulting in new challenges for the offshore wind industry. The commonly used jack-up vessels have a limited operating depth and therefore floating installation vessels become an...

DEEP brain stimulation is currently the only technique used in the clinical setting, capable of stimulating the deep brain nuclei. Recently, low intensity focused ultrasound has been shown to reversibly modulate brain activity. At present, ultrasound neuromodulation is performed through the transcranial pathway. This requires the ultrasound...

The potential for the production of green energy in the Netherlands is insufficiently utilized. The cause for this problem is the insufficient bearing capacity of industrial roofs for the installation of solar panels using ballast. This required ballast exceeds the bearing capacity of the roof structure, or exceeds the bearing capacity of the...
