Floating breakwaters are applicable in several offshore applications to protect downstream structures from excessive wave loads and to reduce their motion response. This thesis investigates the impact of the leading platform, functionally a breakwater, on the RAOs and response of the platforms behind it in frequency domain. The structures are...

To meet the goal of the European Union of becoming climate neutral in 2050, the Netherlands and North West Europe will integrate more and more variable renewable energy sources (VRE) into their power system. The uncertain weather conditions on which the VRE are dependent, will increase the need for a more flexible power system. An important...

The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is a key component in the Earth System. Given its important role in the climate system, variability in the AMOC strength is expected to have great impact on the global climate. The current observational timeseries are not long enough to make climate projections for the end of the century or...

A QUAD lift is a new lifting method in which dual crane vessels combine their vessel capability to increase their offshore lift performance. The use of the Jumbo J-Class vessels in a QUAD lift creates the opportunity to increase the offshore lift capacity and to install structures with larger dimensions. When floating vessels are close to each...

Traditionally, the different energy sectors, such as electricity and heat, are planned and operated separately and independently from each other. In the 1990s, electricity generation in Europe was dominated by conventional fuel sources like coal and oil, followed by gas. Due to the eventual depletion of those sources, and to escape from the...

The urgent transition to other forms of energy production, delivery and consumption has induced investments in new technologies such as renewable energy sources, storage units and demand response programs. Investments in these assets represent long-term commitments (e.g. 40 years ahead) from civil society, governmental institutions and capital...

Code quality of software products often degrades while they grow. Counteracting the degradation of code quality or improving it requires immense effort. Tools that reduce this effort are a hot topic in software engineering research. Software Modularization in particular aims to aid in the process of improving the quality of code structure, by...

In this research OpenFOAM is used to model and determine the complex hydrodynamic behaviour of a Homogeneous low-crested structure (HLCS) consisting of cubipod artificial concrete elements. The validated model is used to gain insight in the design sensitivities of a two dimensional cross sectional layout to reduce sea wall overtopping. HLCS and...

With emphasis on finding storage solutions for renewable based power plants, hydrogen has emerged as one of the prominent options. Hydrogen required in fertilizer, oil and gas industries etc., is produced using fossil fuels which emits carbon dioxide 10 times the produced hydrogen. It is important to produce the hydrogen from green energy...

The increasing penetration of renewable energy in the energy grid causes intermittency, resulting in fluctuating prices. This in turn forges windows of opportunity for the electrochemical production of chemicals that would otherwise be too expensive. This research aims to optimize a continuous-flow-through reactor hosting the production of...

This thesis’s objective was to re-design a weight sensor readout system for Intralox, an international manufacturer of conveyor belts and equipment. Intralox’s current implementation is expensive, too complicated, and inaccurate. After considering several possible readout implementations, an inductively coupled solution with a frequency-based...

This thesis presents a resonant sensor circuit design that converts the deformation of a load cell in a conveyor belt into a change in resonance frequency. The sensor is inductively coupled to a reader circuit using planar PCB inductor coils. A sensor circuit was designed, fitted on a square PCB with 14.14 mm side length. The circuit consists of...

As buildings get taller and lighter, structural engineers are increasingly faced with the consequences of the dynamic response of high-rise buildings to wind. Damping is an important property for the dynamic response of high-rise structures, but is a combination of many mechanisms, which makes it a complex phenomenon to account for in the...

Graphene is expected to open up a world of new possibilities in the field of micro and nano sensors, due to its outstanding properties. However, graphene membranes suffer from high damping which limit their performance. The physical mechanism behind this damping is still unknown. Therefore, in this work, it is investigated how coupling between...

Muscles generate force and enable movement. After excitation of a muscle the muscle fibers contract. Methods to assess muscle contraction in vivo are scarce. Electromechanical delay (EMD), defined as the time lag between muscle excitation and contraction onset, has been proposed as a measure for contraction efficiency, but provides limited...

Tele-impedance augments classical teleoperation by enabling the human operator to actively command remote robot stiffness. Hereby, an essential strategy used by humans to successfully interact with the unstructured environment complements remote robot-environment interaction. However, literature lacks awareness of benefits and disbenefits of...

Dravet Syndrome is a rare epileptic disorder, which is caused in more than 70% of all patients by a loss-of-function mutation in the SCN1A gene encoding sodium channel Nav1.1. One of the main problems for treatment of patients with Dravet Syndrome is drug resistance and there are no biomarkers to monitor the efficacy of a particular treatment....

Liquid fuels are projected to account for 88% of total energy use in the transportation sector in 2040. Low cost of renewable energy poses a new opportunity for decarbonisation of the transport sector. As a liquid en- ergy carrier, methanol offers a promising solution for alternative fuels in aviation, shipping and long-distance trucking. Zero...

In recent years, the need to reduce the global warming of the planet has become more imperative than ever. Global warming and, at local scale, Urban Heat Island phenomena are among the primary effects of the increased building carbon emissions. Nevertheless, understanding and controlling the parameters which intensify, or mitigate, the...

A better understanding in the biological clock is important to help reduce stress on shift workers. Moreover, in the field of medication it will allow for more effective treatments as certain types of medication are more effective when applied at certain moments in the 24-hour cycle. The mammalian biological clock is controlled by a tiny area in...
