Patients diagnosed with drop foot syndrome experience difficulties creating enough clearance during walking, resulting in stumbling over very small obstacles. An Ankle Foot Orthosis is an orthopaedic aid which limits the plantar flexion of the foot, providing a safe walking gait for the patient. Currently, these AFOs are vacuum formed over a...

Plastic is a material that has greatly improved well being for the masses. However, it also contributes significantly to pollution of the natural environment and depletion of natural resources. So far only a small percentage of plastic is recycled and used for the production of new products. Inferior material quality and the inability to make a...

From the beginning of the 21st century, thin glass has been used as a screen protector for electronic devices and smartphones. During the last 10 years, several studies have been carried out to introduce the thin glass in the building industry. The advantages of this material are light weight, high strength and high flexibility. On the other...

Visitors who return from a festival experience an empty feeling combined with fatigue. In this thesis, this experience is called the void. An established psychological phenomenon called the Peak-End rule describes how events are judged by both their peaks, be they positive or negative, and their ends. The end of festivals is now often perceived...

A relatively new and not rather common technique in construction industry is the use of 3D printers to print architectural structures and buildings. Nowadays, parts of the printed object are build in inside environments, where after the parts have to be transported to their desired location, which is very costly and time consuming. A solution...

While touch Interfaces have greatly improved the user friendliness and functional possibilities of devices, haptic feedback has been lacking in user interface design. Good Haptic feedback not only gives confirmation of a key press, but also enriches the user interaction and improves the usability of interfaces.
This absence of haptic...

Children missing an upper limb face a wide range of issues. Besides the difficulties adult prosthetic users face, such as unsatisfactory function, comfort, and appearance, children also have to deal with the challenges associated with growth. The goal of this thesis was to design an appealing solution for these growing children with an upper...

The research of this thesis focuses on the stiffness and the durability of a composite panel that consists of thin glass as outer layers and a 3D printed core element from recycled PET. Thin Alumino-silicate glass, mostly used in computers, tablets and smartphones, is known for its lightweight, flexibility, durability, high bending strength and...

Research and development in additive manufacturing with concrete has become more widespread over the last decade. The processes developed range from concrete extrusion, to digital fabrication of formworks and the unification of formwork and reinforcement. Although they enable the production of increasingly material-efficient structures, the...

Additive manufacturing allows material structuring, supporting the fabrication of multiple-level structures or metamaterials. Through the lens of classical stress reduction, nature’s cellular solid structures feature stress-homogenizing nodal topologies. Avian long bones are an example. Research into the mechanics of open cell cellular solids...

In spite of the fact that there are many advantages of alkali activated materials (also called geopolymers) over the cement-based materials, geopolymer concrete has been used in the past for construction purposes on a very limited level. Among the many advantages of geopolymers compared with the cement-based materials is less CO2 emission, it...

Background: In low- and middle-income countries there is a high demand for prosthetic devices. An automatic system, in which hand prostheses are manufactured with 3D printers can potentially offer a solution for patients having a transradial defect in these areas. As part of such a system, a detailed 3D model of the residual limbs is needed. In...

In June 2015, MX3D announced that they were planning on building a fully functional 3D printed stainless steel bridge. The bridge will be placed on the Oudezijds Achterbrugwal located in the red light district. Because the bridge is pushing construction and modelling techniques, the bridge will also be fitted with a sensor network. The sensors...

Additive manufacturing, popularly known as 3D printing, could positively change the fabrication of façade panels. Benefits include manufacturing each façade element uniquely without the use of a mould while having the potential of integrating functions as water drainage and solar shading within the object. Recycling polymers, obtained from...

The objective of this research project is to verify whether 3D printing of concrete (3DPC) reduces the environmental impact by increasing the structural efficiency. During the literature study, numerous articles were identified that claimed an increase of structural efficiency by using 3DPC to reduce material use. Some of these articles suggest...

An upper limb prosthesis, i.e. a hand prosthesis, is a device to replace the function of an upper limb on upper limb amputees. In developing countries, amputees’ access to the device is scarce to unavailable. In addition to the absence of experts in those areas, currently there are no automatic measurement methods for upper limb amputees...

As interest in additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, increases, technological improvements are making printing methods quicker and more cost efficient. Inventors and innovators are able to print low-cost and complex geometries rapidly as a result of the manufacturing time being reduced from weeks to hours. With the large amount of polymeric...
