Daemen, Mieke (author)The main aim of the research presented in this report is investigating analytical methods to model fluidstructure interaction in largescale offshore floating photovoltaics. The model that was attempted to be solved analytically is based on a model presented by Pengpeng Xu (2022).<br/>The dimensions in the equations were removed. Applying a...bachelor thesis 2022

de Jong, Sam (author)The Ekman spiral is described by a coupled system of differential equations originally discussed by Walfrid Ekman (Ekman, 1905). This system is a simplified version of the NavierStokes equations. The differential equations, as discussed in Ekman’s paper, concern the currents of the ocean. However, it is also possible to interpret these...bachelor thesis 2021

Swaab, Vera (author)In this paper, it is analysed how an infinite cable behaves when a wave from the right hits a TMD system attached to it. The TMD system consists of a mass M1, a spring with stiffness K, a damper with coefficient C and a second mass M2. The cable has a tension T. Then it is investigated what happens when a wave goes through the cable and hits...bachelor thesis 2020

Missula, Sharanya (author)Vibrations or oscillations can be caused in overhead cable lines or bridge cables due to strong rain and winds, making the structure unstable.These vibrations can be mathematically described as a string like initial boundary value problem with nonclassical boundary conditions. In this thesis, we consider a nonlinear attachment at the boundary...master thesis 2020

Rou, J.G. (author)In this research a study of the response of a simply supported microbeam subject to an electric actuation is presented. A perturbation method called the method of multiple scales is explained and used to solve our problem. A model concerning the midplane stretching and an electric force with a direct and alternating current component is...bachelor thesis 2020

Smeets, Lucy (author)Massspring systems are commonly used in structural components. Understanding their characteristics and pitfalls is an important issue, combining physics and mathematics to prevent such systems from resonating and causing structures to weaken or collapse. This way, suitable solutions can be found such as the use of dampers with the right...bachelor thesis 2019

Zoutendijk, Mike (author)In this project the transversal vibrations of an accelerating elevator cable system are studied, with the aim to find the resonance times, the resonance duration and the resonance amplitude. The elevator cable is modelled as an axially moving string, with length given by l(t) = l0 + 1/2 at2, with a the acceleration and t the...bachelor thesis 2017

Beij, J.C. (author)Faculty EEMCS (Mathematical Physics) and Applied Sciences (Quantum Nanoscience).  In this project, we study the governing differential equation for a supported microbeam which is electrostatically actuated. The differential equation has been derived using a Hamiltonian principle and Kirchoff's approximation. Our questions on this differential...bachelor thesis 2016

Massarweh, L. (author)The Three Body Problem (3BP) has been one of the main celestial mechanics problems in the past few centuries, for a long time studied by both engineers and mathematicians. Its practical purpose is to describe the motion of three particles only under their mutual gravitational interaction, thus it actually represents a ‘model’ of the real...master thesis 2016

Gromotka, Z.J.G. (author)This report will study an oscillator with timevarying mass under the influence of rainwind induced vibrations. The vibrations will satisfy an initial value problem with a nonlinear ordinary differential equation. The multiple timescale perturbation method is used to solve the initial value problem. As the mass is set periodic in time with...bachelor thesis 2014

Echeverria Serur, C. (author)This thesis approaches the solution of the linearized finite element discretization of the NavierStokes operator matrix via the use of Krylov subspace methods preconditioned by SIMPLEtype pre conditioners aided by deflation. It includes an explanation of the theoretical setting of the problem as well as a collection of numerical experiments...master thesis 2013
