With the recent developments in tissue-engineered organ substitutes, there has been an increasing demand for novel culturing techniques to create biological substitutes in vitro, as well as reliable and efficient test methods that can assess their biocompatibility and mechanical performance. In the past two decades, perfusion bioreactors have...

Large companies suffer from the increasing complexity that exist in their software systems. Evolving their software becomes even harder if we consider that a change in one system can affect several other parts of their software architecture. Especially banks that need to be always complied with regulations, have to constantly make changes in...

This thesis presents a methodology to improve the effectiveness of a ship design process. This methodology consists of performing systems engineering by means of a tailored framework and subsequent guideline. The first is a tool for designers to identify and define operational objectives and functional requirements of (sub)systems, to make...

The growing need to understand the behaviour of un-reinforced masonry URM), subjected to
repeated light man-made earthquakes caused by the extraction of gas in the north-eastern part
of The Netherlands has resulted in intense research to determine the exact process of crack
initiation and propagation. The historical masonry buildings...

After a waterflood the oil saturation is (close to) the irreducible oil saturation, wherein oil in a porous medium is dispersed over the pore network in unconnected droplets due to snap off. In a chemical flood, the surfactant reduces oil-water interfacial tension and liberates the trapped oil droplets. These mobilised droplets coalesce into a...

In 2003, it was established that the sea dike between Petten and Camperduin was insufficiently safe.
To ensure the safety of the hinterland against flooding, this part of the Dutch sea defence system needed to be strengthened.
During the design process, the most favourable variant was to construct a dune and beach system in front of the...

The phenomenon of earthquake-induced soil liquefaction has been a major issue among geotechnical engineers mainly due to the dramatic consequences this could have on civil structures. Basically, earthquakes propagate shear waves generating excess pore pressures and thus weakening the effective shear resistance of granular soils to their minimum...

The Flying-V is a novel flying wing concept where the main lifting surface has been fully integrated with the passenger cabin. Previous studies have focused on the aerodynamic and structural design of the airframe; but, prior to determining which engine-airframe integration alternative is most beneficial (e.g. boundary layer ingestion, distributed...

Software developers today crave for feedback, be it from their peers in the form of code review, static analysis tools like their compiler, or the local or remote execution of their tests in the Continuous Integration (CI) environment. With the advent of social coding sites such as GitHub and tight integration of CI services such as Travis CI,...

The objective of this research project is to verify whether 3D printing of concrete (3DPC) reduces the environmental impact by increasing the structural efficiency. During the literature study, numerous articles were identified that claimed an increase of structural efficiency by using 3DPC to reduce material use. Some of these articles suggest...

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...

"Floating for Health" is a project of the Architectural Engineering graduation studio at the Delft university of Technology. This research and design project explores the problems of rural flood-prone areas in low-income regions and proposes a solution for the lack of healthcare facilities. The context that has been chosen is the region of West...

Recreation from the forest is a project from the graduation studio Architectural Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. This research and design project explores local energy potentials from the forest. The project is set in the context of IBA Parkstad, which is an area that was part of the former mine region in the province of...

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...
