Early-stage design of complex ships is of an iterative nature due to a coevolving problem definition and solution generation. In addition, design decisions are often made based on assumptions early on. To inform the stakeholder dialogue to support the definition of the design problem, designers need to gain insight into the technical feasibility...

Transition zones in railway tracks, which occur at changes in track form and or substructure properties, are known to cause issues with track degradation. Examples can be found where a track section, usually a ballast track, transits to a slab track to cross a roadway or waterway through supporting structures such as bridges, level crossings,...

Conventional computing systems involve physically separated storing and processing units. To perform the processing, data is shuttled from the storing unit to the processing unit followed by the actual processing, and the processed data is shuttled back into the storing unit. Unfortunately, this data shuffling contributes significantly to the...

This research has aimed to investigate the possibility of applying a neural network algorithm into the structural design process of bascule bridge leaves, by creating a workflow in Grasshopper. The demand for this tool, originates from the fact that the current design process is experienced as linear and slow, and does not fit the dynamic design...

The wrist is one of the most complex joints in the human body, comprised of multiple bones and ligaments, and capable of performing a variety of movements. Proper wrist motion relies heavily on the interplay between the carpal bones of the hand and its ligamentous connections, and when that interplay is compromised hand function can be severely...

Finding signs of life on planets outside of Earth is an ongoing challenge in astronomy. Nulling interferometry is a promising method to not only detect exoplanets, but also allow for characterization of their atmospheres. Nulling interferometry has been demonstrated on ground, but with limited success, due to atmospheric turbulence. To maximize...

In the last years, municipalities' role in protecting cities from climate change impacts has increasingly gained attention due to their proximity to the citizens. Although municipalities have the tools to implement mitigation and adaptation strategies, anchoring these strategies will demand multiple interventions in the urban sphere if...

Climate change is a pressing issue. Hydrogen aircraft are an excellent alternative to current kerosene aircraft, and appear to be the most viable long-term solution for net-zero flight. One of the main challenges for hydrogen aircraft is to sustain a low boil-off rate. This research explores the solution of active cooling of the LH2 mixture in...

Loeffen, Betsie (author)
Dutch municipalities are striving for a better connection with their residents and increased mutual trust. Nevertheless, the voice of youth is often overlooked in this process, despite their right to be heard in policies and decisions that affect their lives. This is reinforced by bureaucratic institutions primarily focusing on executing tasks,...

A design study was performed that investigated the feasibility of a business concept combining a unified supply chain with automated vending points in the floriculture sector. In such a business, a direct link between production (growers of flowers) and customers exists. The added value along the chain can then remain with the growers. This...
