In recent years, ships are expected to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. For naval vessels, it is important to be able to maintain their mission profile. It is therefore required to provide real-time advice to the ship’s crew on the optimal speed and propulsion mode settings that include the actual environmental conditions....

The objective of this project is to devise and develop a design tool that lets the user explore different force flows during conceptual design, with the goal to inform different geometries, thereby realizing an integrated design process. Key characteristics that this tool must incorporate to be successful are defined as feedback (the ability to...

The establishment of areas for safe automated driving in mixed-traffic settings is one major barrier in the development and adoption of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). This work investigates safety in the interactions between AVs, human-driven vehicles, and vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians in a simulated urban environment in the...

A tiny house is a building for permanent human habitation that is specifically designed to have a limited ground surface. The tiny house design discussed in this report has a strong focus on circularity, sustainable material usage, smart systems, and affordability. To achieve an overall self-regulating and ecological concept, the aim is to...

Scarcity of maritime container terminal (MCT) capacity can become a problem for global supply chains. Bottlenecks limit the capacity of these terminals and should therefore be detected and alleviated. However, there is no structured approach available in literature to mitigate the effects of bottlenecks at MCTs. Therefore, this research...

This thesis investigates the performance limits and design challenges of two current-mode front-end concepts that target WiFi and mm-wave 5G applications, respectively. The first concept is a power amplifier (PA), which operates at 2.4GHz and is driven by a direct-digital RF modulator (DDRM). A design for the PA, which also includes a parallel...

The buildings and construction sector accounts for the majority of the energy consumption in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). For a sustainable future, energy consumption in the sector should be reduced and existing buildings need to be energy retrofitted. A number of studies present energy retrofitting of residential buildings in KSA;...

In the pursuit of promoting cycling and providing better cycling infrastructure, its design is of great importance. One of the critical locations in a network are intersections, and specifically T-junctions, due to the inverted perception of priority. In this paper, we investigate the behaviour at T-junctions dedicated to cyclists and the effect...

Circuity of transit networks, defined as the ratio of network to Euclidean distance traveled from origin to destination stop, has been known to influence travel behavior. In addition to the longer time spent in travel, for networks where fare is based on distance traveled, higher circuity also means higher fare for the same Euclidean distance...

One of the biggest challenges in modern transmitter (TX) design, when going from the fourth generation (4G) to fifth generation (5G) communications network, is to handle the increased linearity requirements without introducing any compromise in the energy efficiency of the TX line-up. In analog systems, high quality for the TX signal can be only...

The emergence of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) could have a significant impact on traffic efficiency and safety. The effects of CAVs in regular highway traffic are relatively well represented in scientific research. How these effects change in exceptional situations, such as work zones, and how the infrastructure can influence these...

The synergic effect between the spatial organisation and freight transport is crucial for transport planners to understand. It will help in improving freight transport planning. The absence of freight data has made such a study difficult. This research aims to understand the relation between spatial organisation and freight transportation by...

This research focuses on identifying and evaluating ways to improve the sustainability of solid waste management (SWM) in semi-public spaces using the Efteling theme park as a case study. To the best of the author’s knowledge, this study is the first to apply an integrated waste management approach to optimize SWM in this context. The approach...

The global battle to reduce greenhouse gases changes many aspects of how we should think of our energy resources. For a large part, the industry is responsible for worldwide energy consumption. In the Netherlands, this share amounts to 41% of total energy production (Compendium voor de Leefomgeving, 2019). The industry is looking into different...

The mechanism presented in this paper generates a partially negative stiffness characteristic, which is suitable for the balancing of a pendulum in a gravity field. The mechanism uses deformation in the axial direction of the base joint to store potential energy. The proposed design is located next to the base joint of the pendulum in an area...

CMOS technology is one of the feasible solutions to meet the world’s growing demand for high data rates because it offers the prospect of SoC at a low cost. But, the PA forms the major bottleneck in making SoC because the PAs in high data rate wireless communication systems have the requirement of high-efficiency and good linearity even at...

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...

Accurately and efficiently estimating system performance under uncertainty is paramount in power system planning and operation. Monte Carlo simulation is often used for this purpose, but convergence may be slow, especially when detailed models are used. Previously published methods to speed up computations may severely constrain model complexity...
