The overall purpose of this study is to establish novel methods of vehicle localization and mapping using a 1D linear automotive radar array in conjuncture with pre-existing lidar maps, and to test if the generated radar map can be made to be 3 dimensional. The reason for creating a novel localization method was to try and alleviate some of the...

Aortic Abdominal Aneurysm (AAA) is a chronic degenerative disease of the arterial wall. The aortic vessel wall abnormally dilates due to multiple possible causes and may eventually rupture. It is characterized by several factors leading to the extreme dilation due to the degeneration of the vessel wall extracellular matrix (ECM). It is often...

In this research project, an attempt is made to fuse the fields of structural mechanics and machine learning. The goal is to find out if models can be created that are capable of predicting the outcomes of (nonlinear) finite element analyses. These models are created by means of Artificial Neural Networks, which is a powerful method in the...

Reusable rocket stages is a trend in launch vehicles that have been observed for some time now. Even reusable upper stages have been seen in the Space Shuttle, Kistler K-1 and now the SpaceX Starship. This thesis is on the development of a genetic optimisation algorithm to determine the economic feasibility of upper stage reusability. Genetic...

Fibre reinforced polymers, or FRP, are increasingly used in structural engineering applications. Permeating the construction field from the aerospace industry, FRP are applied in both the rehabilitation of existing degrading structures as well as the conception of new projects such as pedestrian and traffic bridges or building facades. The...

Building on recent advances in the fields of low-thrust trajectory optimization based on shaping methods, Artificial Neural Networks, and surrogate models in Evolutionary Algorithms, an investigation into a novel optimization routine is conducted. A flexible Python tool to evaluate linked trajectories in a two-body model based on the hodographic...

Nowadays, conceptual breakwater layout design mostly relies on experience and expert judgement, making it complicated to demonstrate that an economic optimum has been reached. This stresses the need to develop a tool that is able to establish the economically most attractive breakwater layout for a certain set of requirements and site-specific...

This thesis focuses on the development of a computational model for early-stage design decision support of naturally ventilated terminal structures. The model is developed in a parametric Rhino Grasshopper environment paired with Python coding and CFD analyses through OpenFOAM. Optimization of air distribution parameters is performed with...

Switches that can be (re)programmed through the network programming language P4 are able to completely change – even while in the field – the way they process packets. While powerful, P4 code is inherently static, as it is written and installed to accommodate a particular network requirement. Writing new P4 code each time new requirements arise...

Datacenter infrastructure has become vital for stakeholders across industry, academia and government. To operate efficiently, datacenter operators rely on a variety of complex scheduling techniques, to distribute user workloads across resources. In this work, we leverage a reference architecture for datacenter scheduling to design and implement...

To accommodate the fast growing air traffic in a safe and efficient way, an ATM paradigm shift from current Time Based Operations towards Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) is envisioned. TBO entails the exchange, maintenance and use of consistent 4D trajectory information for collaborative decision-making on the flight. This thesis addresses a...

A wet clutch is a device that transfers torque between two shafts via a hydraulic mechanism. Wet clutch control is key to achieve smooth and fast clutch engagements. Optimal control of a wet clutch is not trivial because of the complexity of the system due to nonlinearities, hybrid dynamics and changing dynamics over time due to changing...

A repetitive motion system supporting nano meter precision is positioned at high accelerations, which produces a force that disturbs the demanded accuracy requirements. Iterative learning control is used to learn optimal feedforward control signals for the attenuation this disturbance force. The iterative method comes with a limitation, as it...

Successful implementation of fully autonomous vehicles is a much desired objective. Within the area of unmanned marine craft or unmanned surface vehicles (USV), the implementation of truly autonomous navigation is still a challenge. During times in which humans are still actively involved in the processof maritime navigation, regulations are...

A high drop-out rate is present during current-day air traffic controller (ATCo) training, because the required expertise level is not reached. The determination of the expertise level of ATCo students is currently performed using subjective assessments at a late stage in the training by means of high-fidelity simulator sessions. It is desired...

Over 450 oil platforms need to be removed from the North Sea in the next decade. Each of these platforms is custom designed for installation and service lifetime, but not for decommissioning. Allseas' Pioneering Spirit is the largest heavy lift vessel in the world, capable of lifting complete topsides in a single-lift operation. The vessel’s...

Lighting design is a computational expensive task, commonly done using Computer-aided design (CAD) software in a virtual scene. The designer places and tunes the virtual light sources and, yet the virtual environment is ideal for physically correct light tracing, the costly simulation might not provide the desired impression in the real scene....

The rapid growth of power systems supplied by sustainable energy sources and the attempt towards the decrease of CO₂ emissions has resulted in the increase of decentralized energy systems over the last decades. Tri-generation systems utilizing an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) can offer a reliable alternative towards that direction. In particular,...

Calibration of groundwater models can be done manually by comparing the measured and computed groundwater heads or automatically using algorithms which do the work for you. Modules for this purpose are included in or linked externally to traditional groundwater modelling software and used. One such module PEST (Parameter ESTimation) uses the...

The current rail infrastructure is used intensively in and around large cities, several functional network levels can be defined within the rail infrastructure. The combination of different network levels puts pressure on the available infrastructure capacity and investments are needed to increase the infrastructure capacity. The definition...
