The current automated warehousing solution from ORTEC is handling order pallets without changing its layer configuration. However, a warehouse can be used to handle different order pallet types. This paper shows the requirements for and the feasibility of integrating a layer picking area with the automated warehousing solution. A layer picking...

Topology optimization is a bio-inspired optimization method based on the growth of bones. With this method, the optimal material distribution with the minimal amount of material for a product can be defined. This could help engineers to create innovative lightweight designs and get rid of benchmark and pervious design on which current designs...

To protect pipelines in Arctic regions they are often buried in trenches, effectively preventing damage by ice gouging. When trenching is performed in Arctic soil, subsea permafrost may be encountered at water depths up to 100 m, mainlywhile excavating clay soil. Frozen clay is an anisotropic inhomogeneous material with a tensile strength and...

This graduation project aims to develop an orthosis for patients suffering from a reduced Range of Motion (RoM) of the ankle joint. The reduced RoM is in dorsiflexion direction, the patient lacks the ability to turn the foot in the direction of the knee. This gait pattern is known as drop foot gait. This results in a low walking speed, increased...

Localization is vital for a ship’s hull maintenance robot such as the Fleet Cleaner robot. Not only is it key for automation of the robot, but it is also required to guarantee coverage and to produce inspection reports. Previous work on the position determination focussed on the under water localization and left the above water section as a...

Current autonomous steering controllers are designed based on either optimal control strategies or on average human driver steering behavior. Individual drivers may wish to steer differently than those controllers do. Such conflicts can be mitigated by customizing individual steering behavior. This thesis aims to develop a method to...

Jumbo operates in the shipping and offshore branches where they specialise in heavy lift transportation and installation of non-containerised cargoes in the global tramp shipping market. Currently, due to the lack of commercial scheduling tools, Jumbo’s commerce department is constrained to manual scheduling. In order to reduce the complexity...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a promising renewable energy technology that has vast potential in the tropics. The technology uses the temperature difference between different ocean layers to run a power cycle. The effects of temperature variations for a fixed design of the thermodynamic cycle is one of the questions that has to be...

Natural gas wells produce small amount of liquids along with the gas. During the initial part of the reservoir life, the gas velocity in the well tubing is large enough to drag the liquid upwards. As the well matures, the reservoir pressure starts to decline leading to a decline in the gas velocity in the tubing; here the gas momentum is not...

PostNL E-Commerce Services is an e-fulfilment centre, which means that they keep stock, pick, package and send out goods for web shops. For a web shop they handle the European distribution. On this packaging operation it turned out that 33% of orders were handled late. A discrepancy was found between the amount of orders placed and handled every...

This work explores predictability in atmospheric flows. A study on forecasting is conducted in the Lorenz [1963] model using several Data Assimilation techniques. Methods of statistically combining model forecasts with observations for prediction are tested for their performance, which readily extend to higher dimensional systems and are oft...

Step cylinders have numerous applications, for instance, radio communication towers, airport control-towers, antenna members, etc. Numerous applications motivate researchers to investigate this bluff body both numerically and experimentally. The single step cylinder model is comprised of a small-diameter cylinder (d) attached coaxially to a...

The aim of this thesis is to investigate whether other representation techniques of the in-cylinder pressure signal, besides the current pressure-crank angle curve, have the potential of improving the diagnosis in a condition monitoring program. Investigated are the quantitative representation of the heat release through Vibe parameters and the...
