An unfamiliar subject to the contemporary connecting options for cranes on pontoons is removability; Various difficulties and obstructions related to the heavy-duty nature of the equipment lead to a limited amount of practiced conventional connecting options for this purpose, which all have the absence of removability in common. Furthermore, the...

Sodium borohydride (NaBH4) is a potential material-based hydrogen storage solution. However, a lack of information regarding its bulk material properties poses a challenge in designing storage and handling equipment. This report addresses this gap by conducting a series of tests to analyse the bulk material properties of NaBH4 powder and...

The use of petroleum-based fuels in the shipping sector creates harmful emissions that need to be reduced to reach climate goals. Ammonia is being considered as a possible fuel to reduce emissions, but there exist several challenges that prevent its implementation. Research into these several of these challenges is being done, but there is...

Mammoet is developing a new type of system for the transportation of offshore power cables. With this system the cables can be spooled, stored, and transported both on land and on heavy transport vessels in a more efficient way. There are a few uncertainties for the system, mainly about the loads on the carousel and the behavior of the cable...

The worlds awareness of our emissions and the effect it has on our surroundings is increasing. This influences efforts to put new agreements into place to reduce emissions and the effects on global warming. Along with the Paris agreements, the International Maritime Organisation also came with measures to achieve these needed reductions of...

Over the years the introduction of new Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software into the design process allowed engineers to significantly shorten the time necessary to produce finished designs. There seems to be an agreement that using CAE tools shortens the time of the design process and improves the quality of finished products. Although,...

This master thesis focuses on the effect of variabilities in a Power &amp; Free conveyor system on the flow continuity by an analysis on the product, process and production level (3P), a discrete-event simulation model and the theory of Cyber-Physical Production systems (CPPS) to control the product flow. Scenarios were evaluated with this model...

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...

Automation in tomato greenhouses is lacking compared with some other crops. The efficiency and consistency of greenhouse operations can be boosted by implementing automation. Therefore, a new concept that facilitates the robotisation of crop-handling tasks is investigated. This concept combines the existing technology of a movable-gutter system...

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is considered an essential solution to reaching climate goals. The two main identified transport modes in CCS, pipelines and ships, are widely compared to each other in the literature. This research contributes to the literature about the evaluation of transportation modes in CCS chains, by determining to what...

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...

For years, ESI Eurosilo have successfully stored several, mostly low-density, non free-flowing bulk materials in their silo’s. Recently, demand has arisen whether bulk materials outside their current range could be stored using the same reclaim screw system. Unfortunately, the theory behind the screw dates from the 1980s and assumes fine...

Social and political pressure has made emissions an increasingly important subject for companies. The extension of the sustainability reporting mandate by the EU has increased the necessity for carbon transparency for companies in Europe. Warehousing and distribution account for 13\% global supply chain emissions and can be an important factor...

Wind loads acting on STS cranes are an important design parameter to be taken into account when designing STS cranes. Current calculation standards such as the EN13001-2 overestimate wind forces. The goal of this research is to propose an improvement on current calculation standards. Wind tunnel tests were performed to assess the results of...

The main purpose of this report is to investigate flaws within Cornelis Tromp 25T lemniscate crane upper arm joint. This is done in order to figure out why the joint structure is experiencing significant crack propagation and what potentially could have led to a structural joint failure and death of an operator within a crane of the same model....
