Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine most prevalent in adolescent females. As the etiology is often unknown, treatment focusses on preventing curve progression and ranges from observation for mild cases to brace treatment and eventually surgery for the worst cases. This report consists of three different studies, which are...

At the Paris climate conference in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first ever universal, legally binding global climate agreement. This combined with the depletion of fossil fuels drives the interest in renewable energy technologies. The thermal gradient in the ocean is a largely untapped source of renewable energy. It can be utilized...

After stroke, functional recovery may be promoted during the first six months through rehabilitation. Several events are thought to lead to regaining lost functions, among which the remapping of affected limbs to other regions of the cortex is a frequent occurrence. High spatial resolution brain imaging techniques, like magnetic resonance...

Bananas are the fourth most eaten product in the world. In Europe almost 4 million tonnes of bananas are consumed every year. These bananas need to be imported from plantations in, among others, Latin America. Due to the perishable nature of bananas the transport from plantation to Europe is done in cooled reefer containers. During transport the...

The oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface and are therewith the largest source of renewable heat available on the planet. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process that exploits this low-grade oceanic heat. A heat engine is employed to generate electricity from the small temperature gradient that is available between the...

This thesis report considers a research about the usage of composites (fibre reinforced plastics) as structural material of a 7500 m3 gas carrier. The focus of this research is on two different subjects, namely the feasibility of producing such a structure and secondly to determine how the lightweight characteristics of this material can be...

This thesis studies ways of broadening the range of a piezoelectric flow induced vibration harvester. The proposed device consists of a flap connected with a hinge to a spring. Existing harvesters are designed to replace or charge batteries for low power systems in the range of milliwatts. These systems produce low amounts of power, but for low...

The Offshore wind industry harvests energy in offshore locations, using large turbines to convert this energy to electrical power. The electricity is gathered and transported to shore via cables. These cables need to be protected from external hazards that could result in damages and thus economic losses. Generally the cables are buried in the...

The current developments in the world result in increasing tensions between different countries. This increasing tension requires materials that are available when needed. Major budget cuts have resulted in the disposal of six multipurpose frigates which has reduced the total amount of frigates owned by the Royal Netherlands Navy from twelve to...

The grasping of objects is a highly desired function for service robots. To aid with grasping, researchers have developed grasping approaches. A demerit of existing approaches is that they solely focus on the grasp finding. A more important part in grasping is the grasp execution, which involves the solving of a motion planning problem....

We study a (stochastic) parabolic Cauchy problem. We first prove that we have a non-tangential control of the solution of the deterministic parabolic Cauchy problem by the tent space norm of the gradient of the solution. This is done by showing boundedness results for several maximal regularity operators and by developing energy solutions in L^2...

A precise control for the growth of thin film powered by atmospheric pressure atomic layer deposition (ALD) carried out in fluidized bed reactor makes the ultrathin conformal coating of SiO2 on Degussa P25 TiO2 nanoparticles possible. At an operating temperature which can be lowered to room temperature (~27°C), the growth per cycle (GPC) smaller...
