Due to the increase of global containerized trade and container vessel sizes, the necessity of container terminal development is unavoidable. On the other hand, designing a container terminal is a very complex process, and on a concept design phase, a quick assessment for the design alternatives should be done in a limited time, cost, and effort...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) has been heavily researched and developed over the last decade. However, no commercial scale for OTEC has been reached yet. OTEC is a clean and renewable source of energy which utilizes the seawater temperature difference between the upper and deep ocean layers to generate electricity. The heat exchangers...

In the current breakwater design process, not all feasible concepts can be explored due to time constraints. However, designers are also influenced by breakwaters constructed near, or at the same location as their breakwater project. But also conservative assumptions influence the breakwater design process, for instance, regarding the wave...

Over the last few years, technological innovations led to the development of new haptic interfaces. SenseGlove, a Dutch technology start-up, developed an exoskeleton-based haptic interface capable of motion tracking and providing haptic feedback. The academic industry has been identified as a potential target group for this product. However,...

The global aircraft fleet was predicted to grow by approximately 40% between 2017 and 2027 by Oliver Wyman (2017). This fast-growing fleet needs to be supported by equally developing Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) divisions of airlines. In light of the growing need for more efficient and technologically advanced aircraft maintenance,...

As one of the most popular musical instruments, drum kits' design has not changed a lot since it first emerged. However, the product contains some problems which significantly affect user experience. Not to improve the design, this project aims to dig deeper into the world of drum kit and drummers to identify their emotional values and related...

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Leids Universitair Medisch Centrum (LUMC) focuses on vitally threatened patients, who cannot survive without daily intensive treatment. As the patients in this department could easily deteriorate and (potentially) pass away, the staff members of LUMC’s ICU often need to act rapidly and make decisions within a...

Traceability in complex ship design involves keeping track of the evolving relations between need, requirements and design. Such traceability is not fully developed in the current design process at DMO due to divisions in the design process and between design tools. This thesis proposes to use a single information model to facilitate...

The design of a container terminal is a process that goes through a number of phases. One of the first is the concept design phase, which is needed to make a first assessment of the project's technical and financial feasibility. This phase is exploratory of nature, because of the early stage in the design cycle and consists of several tasks that...

It is expected by the EWEA that in the North Sea only the wind energy capacity will increase to 45 GW. In 2015 the capacity was only 5.2 GW. Offshore contractors should be capable of installing lots of turbines and just that is a problem. As turbines increase in size installation vessels need significant upgrades. Therefore, most contractors...

The Delft University of Technology is developing an MDO tool for the conceptual design of transport aircraft. However, the current program is not able to investigate the influence of the undercarriage design on the weight, drag and geometry of transport aircraft. This research proposes a new design method for the undercarriage, for which a new...

With increasing demand for renewable energy, the offshore wind industry is ever growing. Wind turbine generators (WTGs) proceed to grow in numbers and in size, wind farms are located further offshore, in deeper waters, poorer soil conditions or in areas prone to earthquakes. These changes make it increasingly difficult to find capable and...

This thesis presents a methodology to improve the effectiveness of a ship design process. This methodology consists of performing systems engineering by means of a tailored framework and subsequent guideline. The first is a tool for designers to identify and define operational objectives and functional requirements of (sub)systems, to make...

The Graduation project focuses on fusing the research phase and a design phase into an outcome of an architectural manifestation and an attempt to frame part of the spatialities and their multiple subjectivities. The project is based and aims to conclude the research and a search for a method to explore the intrinsic possibilities in a dialectic...

The hybrid monopile is a substructure concept for offshore wind turbines initially designed and developed by Fistuca B.V. This Thesis is about the initial concept design of the connection details in the hybrid monopile. Several concept connections are designed. The best concept is selected and thereafter assessed on the ultimate limit state,...

In this thesis the differences between the monohull and semi-submersible are investigated. For a general heavy lift crane operation and its operational profile, the difference is performance and total cost are calculated. These are used to determine the turning point, the point where the semi-submersible is more favourable for a heavy lift crane...

In this thesis a model is set up to assess the economic viability of early stage buoyancy design concepts. The main research question is to find out if a versatile design approach to the buoyancy lifting concept, i.e. being able to take on multiple projects, can result in an economical viable solution for decommissioning offshore platform...

Baggage handling systems (BHS's) are very complex systems consisting of smaller sub-systems. This thesis explores the potential of automated generation of BHS concept designs for airports. Concept design for BHS's can be defined as the design of the system configuration (which equipment to use and how many equipment pieces) and system layout ...
