van Dijk, Sanne (author)
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...

In the field of structural and geotechnical engineering, a uniform approach to predict and model foundation settlements during the design phase of a high-rise building appears to be missing. In the Netherlands, pile foundations of tower structures underlain by compressible soil layers are challenging to model due to different stiffness and load...

A strained Ge quantum well, grown on a SiGe/Si virtual substrate and hosting two electrostatically defined hole spin qubits, is nondestructively investigated by synchrotron-based scanning X-ray diffraction microscopy to determine all its Bravais lattice parameters. This allows rendering the three-dimensional spatial dependence of the six...

<b>Background</b><br/>Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) with a Cobb angle larger than 45° is a spinal deformity that needs surgical treatment to stop progression and reduce pain. Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure where rods are attached to the spine through screws to diminish the Cobb angle.<br/><b>Objective</b><br/>The metal rods are...

Nanophotonics is the study of structures’ interaction with light with features at or below the nanometer scale. It has gained the interest of many researchers, as it can be used to control the flow of light very effectively in the design of, e.g., solar cells, highly efficient biosensors or lasers. The design of such devices can be non-intuitive...

As a consequence of the difficulty to obtain complete direct information about the subsurface, and the importance of heterogeneity of soil properties in geotechnical design, a desire exists in the geotechnical community for a smarter use of the available data in common practice. The objective of this thesis is to provide a potential solution for...

Cold-bent insulating glass units (IGU) have the potential to be one of the answers to current needs and wishes of modern and sustainable architecture. Curved glass is stiffer against out-of-plane loads and therefore the structural behaviour of cold-bent IGU’s is different compared to flat IGU’s. Structural behaviour of flat glass in buildings is...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

<br/>Aerodynamic noise produced by aircraft, wind turbines, and other objects subjected to airflow contribute to environmental noise pollution, which adversely affects human and animal health. Consequently, governments impose restrictions on aircraft and wind turbine noise levels. These restrictions can have an economic impact by limiting...

Bone drilling is a surgical action required for bone fixation using plates. The holes are currently drilled using a large, conventional drill. This causes problems when limited space is available, de to the size of the drill. For that reason a new, small Compact Drilling System is proposed. In earlier research a compact self-feeding mechanism...

MUHAMMAD RAYYAN, Rayyan (author)
Using an expensive-to-evaluate numerical model, such as a finite element method (FEM) model, is deemed unavoidable in solving modern geotechnical engineering problems. At the same time, the application of reliability analysis in dealing with uncertainties (e.g. soil properties) is increasing rapidly. This could pose a time-wise problem for an...

In this report a new enriched finite volume method is introduced. This method will be particularly useful for fluid-structure interaction problems. In engineering many problems are in the domain of fluidstructure interaction. Examples of these are water in sea locks, blood flowing in vessels and sailing ships. Fluid problems are usually solved...

Wrzosek, Filip (author)
A series of critical transmission lattice towers failures due to severe ice and wind loads forced German utility companies to reassess the structural stability of their power grid infrastructure. During the structural reassessment process, a problem related to an outdated or even missing documentation of the in-use infrastructure occurred. This...

Fin Ray Effect (FRE) grippers have proven versatile and effective in pick &amp; place automation applications. However, spherical and lateral round objects are still a challenge for the state-of-the-art, as solutions are unstable when placing those objects off-centre from the longitudinal line. Resulting in large and heavy FRE gripper assemblies...

Color centers in diamond offer exciting opportunities for implementing an effective solid-state spinphoton interface. Access to and control of spin-photon interaction can help realize a scalable, modular quantum computer using the color center spins. A large magnetic field is needed for splitting the color center spin states, enabling definition...

Munition articles may be sensitive to case-crushing loading. This is a potential safety hazard since it may lead to accidental detonation. A better understanding of the mechanism causing the munition articles to react can help improve safety. A finite element model combined with post-processing is used to model a Steven test. This thesis...

With the climate goals of the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal, countries need to reduce their carbon footprint and increase their renewable energy production. For countries with high population density, land-based photovoltaics (solar) takes up valuable space. Therefore, solar application at sea is considered. <br/><br/>One of the...

Glacial Isostatic Adjustment (GIA) is a process which focuses on the deformations of the Earth due to changing ice sheets. It is an important study in Climate Sciences, gravimetric studies and Earth modelling. Studying GIA allows to contribute to a better understanding of the Earth’s composition, thanks to the testing of multiple Earth models,...

Integration of the sensory systems inside patient-specific medical devices (e.g., implants or prosthesis) can provide additional measurement data at different time points. This can result in improving the traditional designs of those medical devices, and consequently leading to increasing the patient’s comfort and quality of life. By doing...
