Semiconductor product development becomes increasingly challenging due to diminishing product life cycles, miniaturization, introduction of new physical principles, and new manufacturing processes. These problems are compounded in the absence of standardized development processes for the most complex semiconductor products like MEMS technologies...

This research addresses the critical role of the Yard Utilization Rate (YUR) in the performance of container terminals, focusing on Rubber-Tyred Gantry Crane (RTG) container terminals. Existing literature reveals a gap in studies specifically targeting high YURs in RTG container terminals. The primary research question is, ”How to reduce Quay...

Inland waterway shipping, marked by its unpredictable and variable nature, plays a crucial role in transportation. This research's objective is to address these inconsistencies by constructing a robust scheduling model tailored to waterway systems' specific needs and challenges. The model is enhanced with predictive analytics and optimisation...

During single-blade offshore wind turbine (OWT) installation, wind disturbance results in blade root motion. The sensitivity to this wind disturbance is more significant for larger blades, reducing the allowable installation weather limit. A potential solution is a Hook Mounted Compensator (HMC) between the crane and the load that can provide...

The parcel transport industry utilizes automated parcel sorting systems to effectively manage incoming parcels. These systems typically comprise multiple infeed conveyors that converge onto a single merge conveyor for parcel merging. However, the conventional First-Come-First-Serve merging method results in reduced utilization of the merge...

The worlds awareness of our emissions and the effect it has on our surroundings is increasing. This influences efforts to put new agreements into place to reduce emissions and the effects on global warming. Along with the Paris agreements, the International Maritime Organisation also came with measures to achieve these needed reductions of...

This research work tries to provide a model-based, distributed Fault Diagnosis (FD) framework that will eventually act as an early warning system for online monitoring of the marine propulsion process, in order to avoid future failures and accidents. Furthermore, the introduction of adaptive thresholds in the monitoring modules of the monitoring...

Offshore lifting operations must have reduced payload motion to increase safety and reduce operating time. When payload is retrieved from the splash zone to the deck, besides the crane block, no additional control can be applied on the underactuated system. Existing studies either assume more control over the payload or develop a control system...

New trends in the offshore wind industry show that wind farms are being built further onto sea. This also means that turbines have to be installed in deeper waters resulting in new challenges for the offshore wind industry. The commonly used jack-up vessels have a limited operating depth and therefore floating installation vessels become an...

Abstract<br/>Purpose - The aim of this paper is to propose a method for performance measurement of the livestock feed industry from an environmental and economic perspective. There is a knowledge gap both in the literature and society in the field of performance measurement of the livestock feed industry with environmental concerns. Livestock...

This thesis has provided insight into how machine learning can be beneficial to path planning in container terminals. Path planning algorithms can be used in environments with automated vehicles. A well known algorithm is the A* path planning algorithm, which is the fastest optimal path planning algorithm under satisfied conditions. However, the...

In 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a resolution to reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses of maritime shipping in the near future. A reduction of 50% in CO2-emissions is the goal for the year 2050 in comparison to 2008. Furthermore, the peak in emissions should lie before 2025 and steadily decrease afterwards.<br/...

Compliant mechanisms have found their way in more and more applications in recent years, particularly in the aerospace and microsystems sectors. The benefits of compliant mechanisms stretch far, and can be exploited for large scale applications as well. Little research has been performed on the use of compliant mechanisms in large scale...

Structural health monitoring of maritime and offshore structures can contribute to the reduction of the amount of uncertainty in assessment of the operational loads and the structural integrity. Such a survey can also reduce the large safety margins during the design and optimize the conservative inspection and maintenance schedules. One of the...

When containers are transported on synchromodal bookings from their origin to their destination, the transport supplier can decide which combination of trucks, trains, and ships to use. This gives transport suppliers many options to route the container through the synchromodal network. Current literature on the individual routing of containers...

The European Union has set ambitious goals in their climate and energy framework to guide our transition to a more sustainable society. To achieve this goal, a mix of sustainable sources will have to be utilised, in which wind energy plays a crucial role. Offshore wind has been growing in popularity within this market, as the onshore market is...

With the increasing focus on project planning in engineer-to-order(ETO) companies, tracking the progress of the design phase of a project is essential for effective planning. Such progress tracking currently is done through the regular feedback of discipline leads, which are intrinsically subjective. The information thus collected is then...

The intermodal transportation transport is used to ship goods from A to B all over the world using different modes of transportation. The intermodal freight relies on the use of standardized containers for this transport. All empty containers need to be shipped back to the areas where there is a demand for empty containers. Since a standard...

The Dutch Railways (NS) is the Dutch national passenger railway operator. They own rolling stock that has to be maintained regularly. One of the maintenance facilities executing regular maintenance on regional trains is the maintenance department (OB) in Leidschendam. The aim of this project is to develop a framework for optimizing the...

A significant growth of the world’s population together with fast growing urbanization is causing challenges for cities in the future. One of these challenges is how to deal with waste production and therefore the waste collection in such areas. Smart waste collection is a promising solution since it optimizes an already excising infra structure...
