To counteract the effect of climate change, a global agreement was put into force in 2016, aiming to limit the increase in average global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In that respect, European countries are investing in cleaner sources of energy and predominantly offshore wind, which has seen a rapid growth over the last years....

EDS Casting and Forging B.V. (EDS) is an Amsterdam-based design agency, specialised in redesigning welded assemblies into castings. As EDS is growing rapidly, and plan to keep on growing, they expressed a need of centralising their in-house design knowledge. From this need, the following problem statement was formulated:

“New engineers...

Ferrofluid bearings provide a cheap and passive alternative to contactless bearings such as magnetic bearings and fluid bearings. The absence of stick-slip and the low viscous friction make them interesting for high precision applications. Despite the theoretical models available in literature, the number of design rules for ferrofluid bearings...

Agile software development is a popular approach for developing software. Another important topic of research in software engineering is code quality. Unfortunately, a minimal amount of extensive research has been done on how these two influence each other. The goal of this study is therefore to explore the connection between these two using a...

Underground infrastructures and the importance of the people’s safety and structures robustness are relevant and contemporary issues in the civil engineering industry. The demand for this infrastructural typology has developed to such an extent that the need for a better and cost-beneficial knowledge of the risks is necessary.

Recent studies and accident investigations show the detrimental effects of startle and (automation) surprise on flight crew performance in terms of cognitive reasoning and sensemaking. Previous research conducted at Delft University of Technology shows a positive effect of training variability on crew performance in surprising tasks related to...

Railway maintenance is currently planned according to a fixed schedule, mostly of one year. This is usually not optimal when considering the cost of maintenance, of possessions and of failure. However, an approach that minimizes the sum of these costs was not yet available. This paper presents a statistical analysis method and an optimization...

Schiphol Airport and Heijmans are working together on the renewal of the Schiphol runways pavements. Currently the top layer is covered with a synthetic antiskid material called ASK. But the strong weather limitations for the installation of this material have opened the door for alternatives. Heijmans has proposed an innovative asphalt mixture...

Class III old yellow enzymes (OYEs) contain a conserved cysteine in their active sites. To address the role of this cysteine in OYE-mediated asymmetric synthesis, we have studied the biocatalytic properties of OYERo2a from Rhodococcus opacus 1CP (WT) as well as its engineered variants C25A, C25S and C25G. OYERo2a in its redox resting state ...

The subject of this research is the concept design of a compact and economically feasible platform for studying the behaviour of bowhead whales in the ice-infested water around the coast of North-East Greenland and particularly in the Fram Strait.

The study is focused on the capabilities of the vessel to operate in a dynamic ice...

In the Netherlands, there are generally two categories of structural forensic investigations. The first category are extensive investigations with the goal to learn from failure by investigating all aspects: technical, human and organisational. The second category are investigations that focus mainly on technical causes and the investigation...

Pipe failure modelling is an important tool for strategic rehabilitation planning of urban water distribution infrastructure. Rehabilitation predictions are mostly based on existing network data and historical failure records, both of varying quality. This paper presents a framework for the extraction and processing of such data to use it for...

On a yearly bases approximately 1,5 million mattresses are discarded in the Netherlands. Matras Recycling Europe (MRE) is an Utrecht based company that specialises in disassembling mattresses. MRE is able to recycle 250.000 to 300.000 of the 1,5 million mattresses. Most of the pieces that are separated from these mattresses can be re-used in...

As of 2040, Energy Information Administration (EIA) expects an increase of 28% in world energy consump- tion. The majority of this consumption is projected to account from developing countries such as India, China and other third world countries since the economy is increasing rapidly. [3]
In order to overcome this fast increase, the human...

Waterborn transport currently runs on diesel driven Internal Combustion Engines
(ICE). To reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions an option is to shift towards
alternative fuels, like alcohols. This thesis focusses on methanol in ICEs. The
combustion of methanol in ICEs can be done in numerous manners, where fuel
altering,...

The crises of global warming, air pollution, acid rain and the running out of oil make the investigation into alternative fuel technologies crucial. New technologies are being investigated on a global scale in an attempt to address these problems. This thesis investigates the use of hydrogen-diesel dual-fuel engines and fuel cells. The economic...

It is important to detect problems fast and to have a clear overview of what is happening within a system after deployment to maximize the uptime and functional quality of the system. Therefore it is necessary to increase the awareness that developers have of errors and logs. Increasing the awareness that developers have of errors and logs has a...
