Within this research parcel behaviour over a bidirectional sorter is optimized to increase efficiency. Currently, influence of parcel properties on the sortation behaviour is unknown and equipment settings are set by experience rather than objective information. To gain insight in the behaviour first, a simulation model has been developed and...

Amsterdam UMC is an academic hospital where high level research is applied in practice. One of the outpatient clinics of location VUmc is the radiotherapy department. Radiotherapy utilises X-ray radiation to damage cancer cells. During their treatment period, cancer patients visit the department once a day to receive a radiotherapy treatment....

Allseas’ Jacket Lift System (JLS) is a system which is currently being developed and capable of transporting, installing and removing a jacket of a production platform as a whole. As the Block Handling System (BHS), responsible of maintaining tension in the main hoist wires by providing a constant tension (CT) counter force, is preferably...

Dust liberation in transfer chutes has been a persistent problem in the bulk handling industry, with an increasing demand for solutions due to the tightening of environmental regulations. An investigation into the root causes of dust liberation and a chute redesign with improvements in dust liberation potential has been performed in this...

Engineers typically design heavy and powerful tools for the use of bulk transfer. High forces are needed to penetrate and to propagate into the bulk. Especially when using a grab, a reduction of mass is desirable. In the conventional approach an optimization problem is encountered as a further reduction in mass reduces the grabs ability to...

Fatigue assessment of offshore structures has always been an important area of study due to a large number of cyclic loading acting on the structure. Traditionally, offshore structures are simulated in time-dependent dynamic analysis to calculate the stress response at critical locations of the structure. Sorting of relevant stress cycles is...

Fatigue is the most common source behind failures of mechanical structures. In order to study the phenomena, experiments have been performed by Lloyd's Register and other tests have been presented in literature. Performing real life fatigue experiments requires a long time, a considerable amount of money and it is size limited.

This research aims to develop a maintenance strategy for large offshore DOT wind farms to reduce the costs for O&M. The strategy consists of a logistical solution in the form of a stock keeping scenario and a mechanism to exchange parts of the drive train. Requirements for the maintenance strategy is to be innovative, in order to stand out...

The production system is redesigned to cope with the increase in cake handling. The Delft Systems Approach is used to analyse and design the functions of the cocoa processor. Silo design principles are used to design the mass flow cake silos for the process. The redesigned production system is capable of increasing the powder output to meet the...

Erosion of the seabed around offshore structures, due to current and waves, is a common occurrence.
Scour protection by rock placement can be done in order to limit erosion and its consequences. Tideway
Offshore Solutions will use the multipurpose vessel ’Living Stone’ to execute such rock placement
operations. Aboard the Living...
