Hydrocephalus is one of the most common abnormalities affecting the nervous system of children around the globe. Especially in developing countries hydrocephalus is a large problem. It is often left untreated resulting in suffering, brain damage, developmental delays and ultimately death. This makes an early detection more opportune than ever....

It is of great importance that enemy aircraft can be detected by a radar. Good knowledge about one’s own detectability is also needed to make one’s own visibility as low as possible. Obtaining the aircraft radar signature involves solving a scattering problem with a large, low-observable aircraft. Briefly explained; the incident radar wave...

The aim of this thesis is to investigate the use of a bifilar pendulum for determining the moments of inertia of the TU Delft solar boat and to quantitatively predict the estimates. In the first part, several methods are discussed which can be applied in deriving the equations of motion of the pendulum. A new method, Kane's method, will be...

This thesis discusses the valuation of embedded options in insurance liabilities using radial basis functions. For insurance companies, the valuation of embedded options is an important topic within risk management. This valuation can become too computationally heavy when nested Monte Carlo simulations are used. To overcome this computational...

The production of oil and gas from a reservoir is aided by the use of simulation models. Reservoir simulators are used to predict the oil and gas flow out of the reservoir. Oil and gas flowing out of a reservoir enter a production network. This network flow is modeled in network simulators. In reality the reservoir and the network form one flow...

Numerical integration methods such as the Fourier-based COS method can be used for effciently and accurately pricing financial products. The COS method can be applied to options on one underlying stock as well as on multiple underlying stocks. However, this method suffers from an exponential increase in computational complexity as the dimensions...

Modeling electromagnetic fields in MRI involves two main challenges: the solution of the scattering problem resulting from Maxwell's equations has to be accurate and it has to be obtained within short computation time. In this thesis a method that meets both requirements is searched for. The method of moments with rooftop basis functions is used...

This thesis is about pricing swaptions under the SABR model or a variant thereof. In the interest market a stochastic local volatility is often used by practitioners to describe the volatility curve in the strike dimension of swaptions. It is a fast approach to inter- and extrapolate market quotes. It is however well-known that this approach is...

The rate of oxygen consumption by germinating seeds is considered to be one of the promising parameters for monitoring the seed status and a candidate for predicting germination and seed vigor. Nowadays, the single seed oxygen consumption patterns can be measured on a big scale and at a detailed time resolution using a Q2 machine. However,...

The TU Delft Solar Boat is a very efficient boat that sails on solar power. To reduce drag the boat lifts out of the water with the hull and "flies" on two hydrofoils. As a result the boat is likely to fall over and seems to be unstable. To analyse the stability we first made a mathematical model that describes the motion of the boat. Based on...

In seismic tomography, parts of the Earth are reconstructed by the travel times of seismic waves that are measured by seismometers. These tomographic problems can be formulated as a system of linear equations. Unfortunately, most of the time the system is ill-posed, because of ray bending and noise. This problem can not only be found in...

The goal of this research project is to study spin chains. This involves diagonalizing large matrices. These largematrices are theHamiltonian matrices of the quantumspin chains. So the eigenvalues represent energy values. Before going into the actual programming it is important to understand how the Hamiltonian works, and how the quantum spin...

A DGFEM discretization has been developed for the Hamiltonian dynamics of stratified incompressible linear fluid flow. The developed discretization can handle the numerical challenges posed by wave attractors: the three dimensionality of the domain, the focusing of wave energy and the incompressibility of the flow. The discretization is...

In recent years, the use of differential equations in connection with algebraic constraints on the variables has become a widely accepted tool for modeling the dynamical behaviour of physical processes. Compared to ordinary differential equations (ODEs), it has been observed that a number of difficulties can arise when numerical methods are used...

A three-dimensional mixed-mode cellular automaton model [C. Bos, M. G. Mecozzi, and J. Sietsma. Computational Materials Science 48.3 (2010): 692-699] for the austenite to ferrite transformation in low-carbon steel has been analyzed and improved. A comparison between the new and conventional model has been made and the improvements found are...

In this project the problem of determining the inner and outer regions of the computational domain for an airbag deployment simulation is addressed. One approach to perform such simulation is via the structural equations of motion for the airbag fabric dynamics, Euler equations of fluid motion for the fluid inside the airbag and a coupling...
