A propeller has a high propulsive efficiency, yet inherently leaves the air it propels swirling. The efficiency of a propeller can be enhanced by placing it in the tip vortex of a wing. Such a tip-mounted propeller configuration lets the vortex created by the wing and the vortex created by the propeller counteract each other, enhancing the...

A research into the influence of the main parameters in the preliminary structural design on the wind-induced dynamic behaviour, including soil-structure interaction effects, of high-rise buildings in the Netherlands. The dynamic behaviour becomes more and more important for higher and more slender structure. The dynamic response is controlled...

In seismically active areas, liquefaction hazards have always been a complicated aspect to evaluate as part of the seismic design of a project. In the case of the design of critical facilities, this becomes crucial, as beyond design basis conditions may elevate the seismic loads significantly and create a considerable liquefaction risk in areas...

Recent decades, an ongoing trend has emerged in the upscaling of wind turbines in order to compete with traditional energy resources. For conventional wind turbines, aside from improving safety, the driving factors for new designs have always been increased efficiency and performance. This has led to novel wind turbine designs comprising thin...

The topic of this project is exploring design directions towards a smart private-bathroom service/product. It is often the case that a bathroom is used by multiple people after each other. An unclean bathroom environment can hinder the user experience. The shared bathroom also involves a peak usage issue. These two points will cause...

This thesis describes a research and design in how to engage millennials around the collection of the Fotomuseum. For the Fotomuseum to shift from a traditional institution to an open and social environment, the public should be involved. Involving the public is necessary to create a high-quality visitor experience. Extensive literature and...

During the last three decades, the Earth’s climate is changing rapidly, with higher average temperatures every year that leads not only to the melting of the ice sheet in the arctic and on most of the glaciers all over the world but also to extreme weather phenomena. The rise of the temperature can affect the Sea Surface Height (SSH) in more...

Liquid storage tanks are used worldwide to contain liquids such as drinking water, fuel and chemicals. Loss of containment during a seismic event can add to an earthquake’s destructiveness by posing a fire hazard, spilling toxic substances or reducing the supply of drinking water. It is therefore important that they remain operational at a pre...

Participatory processes have become unexceptional in Dutch planning. Due to the communicative turn in urban planning, collaborative planning moved up on the local and national government agenda: in 2021 the new environmental act will come into place, which firmly encourages participation in an early stage of the process. Within those...

Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) is a sustainable technology that provides thermal energy to buildings in temperate climates. The principle of ATES is to temporary store thermal energy in aquifers in a warm and cold well in order to use this thermal energy for heating and cooling in the next season. Because the available subsurface space is...

Delirium occurs in upto 80% of the ICU patients and is one of the most common source of morbidity and mortality in the ICU. Inattention is one of the core features of delirium and affects 97% - 100% of the delirium patients. This indicates that attention can be a good parameter for detecting delirium. In literature, it has been found that the...
