Setting up or dismantling a shiprepair yard requires vast amounts of time and resources. Current shiprepair yards are land-based facilities that can not be moved when demand for their services declines. A mobile shiprepair facility would be able to and Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DS&C) expressed interest to investigate the potential...

Multi-use of offshore platforms is a long-term research challenge which aims to combine food and energy production at sea. Research in this field is in its infancy, literature is scarce and without much cross-referencing. The aim of this thesis has been to develop a coherent set of recommendations for the further development of multi-use...

As the aviation sector keeps expanding, a growing interest in technologies that can reduce the dependency from non-renewable energy sources, both for economic and environmental reasons, has led researchers to investigate the opportunities offered by the electrification of flight. It is theorized that the use of electrically powered machines as...

Designers are motivated to create more a efficient aircraft design following the growth of the market and environmental restrictions. As a result new interest in propeller-powered aircraft as such engines show higher theoretical propulsive efficiency as compared to turbofan engines.

The employment of turboprop engines on commercial...

This paper presents the development of a feasibility analysis tool for the Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry called StructuralComponents 5.0. It is the fifth paper in a series of developments starting with Breider (2008), which discussed modelling and analysing 2D tall buildings with an emphasis on quick generation and...

The adoption of optimization algorithms has been slower in conceptual design compared to the later design phases. The choices made during the conceptual design phase have a large impact on the performance of the result. This research aims to find out why it is so hard to use optimization in conceptual design. Then a method is proposed to solve...

With improvements in aviation technology, design requirements to be full-filled have also increased exponentially. This in turn influences the complexity of design process, along with the time and effort required for it. The problem, for this research, has been set up with respect to challenges faced at Fokker Aerostructures, during in-proposal...

The Netherlands is a country where people have to live with water, rather than fighting against it. This philosophy often requires interaction between infrastructure and waterways, where (hydraulic) structures are placed close to or even extending in the waterway, introducing the risk of ship collision. What makes this accidental load so...

The subject of this academic research thesis is a methodical approach on the complex problem-solving process of structural conceptual design.
For this relatively unexplored problem, an exploratory research is conducted by systematically zooming in from the whole to the part and from coarse to fine. The so explored methodical approach on...

There is a highly elite club of individuals on this planet that has a very particular set of characteristics. To be part of this elite establishment one must have a minimal net worth equal to or exceeding 30 million US$ and be the owner of a yacht longer than 25 meters from bow to stern. The individuals who are part of this group have the...

Function modelling is proposed in the literature from different disciplines, in interdisciplinary approaches, and used in practice with the intention of facilitating system conceptualisation. However, function models across disciplines are largely diverse addressing different function modelling perspectives and using different structures and...

Dodanduwa is a small fishery village in the south-west of Sri Lanka, about 20.000 inhabitants are dependent on the fishery industry. Currently the harbour facilities, that were constructed in 2009, are hard to reach due to the wave conditions and sedimentation at the harbour entrance. The Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development...

After the successful application of composite materials on drag braces and trailing arms, Fokker Landing Gear B.V. (FLG) is interested in further developing their composite product family. Therefore it set out an assignment for the development of a conceptual design of a composite main fitting of a cantilever type nose landing gear. This...

Operational decision-making processes for networked infrastructure management often occur as a multi-actor planning problem, implying these are based on negotiations between different stakeholders in addition to available system quality information. As such, does more accurate data about actual structural condition lead to other or better...

Interdisciplinary system development requires the integration of diverse expertise to combine different engineering technologies and—increasingly often—services, in order to provide users with expected value and desired functionality in newly developed products. Failure to achieve integration of disciplines can result in design errors posing a...

The Ornicopter concept is a single-rotor, tailless configuration. By actively flapping its blades, the Ornicopter rotor can propel itself to rotate, and hence does not need a tail rotor. In previous research, the Ornicopter concept has been compared with the Bo-105 conventional helicopter from various aspects, while the Ornicopter has the same...

The study proposes a systematic and exploratory design strategy for determining the HLCV design capabilities. Accordingly, a Monte Carlo simulation optimisation model has been developed based on SDDP approach to align with this strategy. The model can be used as a decision support tool to assess the investment decisions on the design...

Positioning and localization are key topics associated with the control and operation of robotic vehicles. This holds in particular for robots functioning in a challenging environment, such as the ship’s hull maintenance robot developed by Fleet Cleaner. As the industry standard techniques are limited due to constraints imposed by the harbor and...

Innovative engineering design shapes the development of novel technologies and is ethically as well as socially relevant, because it affects what kind of possibilities and consequences will arise. A major challenge in engineering design work on innovative technologies is the multitude of uncertainties in the form of known unknowns, unknown...

Civil Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are outnumbered compared to the military equivalents. They could however be of great value to various organizations, companies and the general public. They currently seem to be on the verge of a breakthrough. An interesting technology that could help increase the flight performance of civil UAVs is the micro...
