Hydrogen is one of aviation's most promising fuel alternatives in the coming years. However, to store it, a large and light vessel is needed. <br/><br/>The solution to this problem can be the carbon fibre fuel tank. Composite structures provide significant weight savings, which is crucial in this application. However, despite its superior...

The development of neural prostheses, especially those directly targeting the brain, requires extensive research and modelling before clinical trials can be performed. Currently, the resolution of artificial vision is not sufficient for everyday tasks. By studying the expected spatial extent of stimulation, we aim to provide insights to...

Pushing the envelope of aerospace structures requires the complete exploitation of their potential in terms of load-carrying capacity per unit weight for both economic and ecological reasons: the two most important being the reduction of fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. A key approach involves allowing structures like stiffened...

Over the past few decades, the Netherlands has built numerous steel railway bridges to improve its infrastructure. The repeated loading from railway traffic makes steel bridges susceptible to fatigue damage. The stress ranges at fatigue-prone locations are generally higher in railway bridges than in road traffic bridges. Due to the limited space...

Lugs are a specific type of joint with a semi-circular geometry around the pinhole utilized in the aerospace field. Its distinct geometry and ability to carry loads in its plane make it a very common choice for design engineers. Although this type of joint is widely used, there are no analytical equations that can predict the stresses around the...

Crane hardstands serve as crucial platforms for supporting heavy lifting equipment and ensuring operational efficiency. However, crane hardstands are not infinitely stiff and will deform upon loading. Uneven loading during wind turbine installation will result in differential deformation of the crane hardstand, causing the crane to tilt. A small...

It is becoming increasingly clear that the effects of climate change should be decreased or even mitigated. Green alternative sources of energy are being explored, and wind energy emerges as an important option that can be exploited on a large scale. Wind turbines are placed more and more often offshore due to larger and more stable wind...

The Noordtunnel is an immersed tunnel open to roadway service since 1990 in The Netherlands. Over the past thirty years of its operation time, a significant differential settlement behaviour has been observed, and this ongoing settlement potentially imposes safety concerns to the tunnel, such as joint leakage. However, the underlying factor...

Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) have been widely utilised in aircraft structures for their specific strength, durability and damage tolerance. Most aircraft structures, due to their size, require joining, and FMLs allow for a special type of joint called the splice, a unique but a lesser known joint.<br/><br/>The bulk of research into the splice...

In this thesis, the acoustic noise emitted by a small electric outrunner motor, such as the ones commonly used in unmanned areal vehicles, is analyzed using a multiphysics simulation based on the finite element method. The simulation covers the electromagnetic, mechanical and acoustic domain. The electromagnetic simulation is performed in the 2D...

To reduce the environmental impact or cost of a civil engineering structure their designs are optimized. A promising method to optimize are iterative optimization algorithms. If both the design calculations and the iterative optimization algorithm are automated, an optimized design solution can be found within a feasible timeframe. To be able to...

A vital component in the management of seismic hazard is the study of past seismic events. Classically, this has been the domain of seismology, which studies the dynamic manifestations of the event to infer properties such as epicenter and moment magnitude. More recently it has become possible to perform similar analyses on the basis of the...

Global warming has caused an increasing demand for renewable energy. Currently, 50% of the renewable energy is provided by wind and solar combined. However, these renewable energy sources are highly volatile. Wave energy converters can provide a stable renewable energy source. Previous research has contributed to understanding various combined...

The applicability of the Sellmeijer design rule to Limburg dike sections near Well, Hout-Blerick, Buggenum, and Thorn was investigated in this thesis. This was accomplished by building a finite element numerical model, in COMSOL Multiphysics, to assess the piping in the hydrogeological systems of the research locations. The proposed model is...
