In well-bore engineering, oil-well boreholes are made using specialized drilling rigs. The position of the drill bit needs to be indirectly determined through accelero- and magnetometer measurements. To this end, the measurement data is first converted into a survey of direction vectors by applying a series of coordinate transformations. Then, a...

For performing technical maintenance, it is important to keep a detailed schedule of resources and temporal constraints. The Resource Constrained Project Scheduling Problem (RCPSP) is a well de- fined scheduling model with both resources and temporal constraints. Precedence Constraint Posting (PCP) is a technique to solve the NP-hard RCPSP...

Loss of control is considered as the primary cause of fatal accidents in aviation, which occurs when the aircraft has left the safe flight envelope. To reduce loss-of-control-related accidents, it is important to estimate the safe flight envelope at the current flight condition and integrate it into flight control system design. This task is...

Pipe laying projects are getting more challenging due to increasing operational depth of pipeline. The increasing depth requires more of the strength and load bearing capability of the pipeline and its girth welds. The assessment method used for checking the integrity of flaws in girth welds is called Engineering Critical Assessment (ECA) and is...

In this report two Agent-Based Models, the Passenger Model and the Transfer Model, will be constructed and analyzed. The objective is to make a realistic model inspired by a cell-based model to simulate passenger flows on a train platform. We will start by studying the cell-based model and we will explain which aspects have been applied to our...

There is a never-ending quest to search for better ways of planning and controlling projects. Currently the majority of all projects are planned with the critical path method and controlled using earned value management. This way of planning and controlling projects has been used for decades now and can be seen as traditional project management ...

Since online shopping was invented in 1979 there has been a major shift in the way people shop. More than 40% of the clothing and footwear and more than 35% of the home electronics are bought online in the Netherlands. Grocery shopping in the e-commerce market. This, and the fact that over 92% of the Dutch population has access to internet...

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

The offshore industry and especially the oil and gas production, has faced a remarkable growth in the last decades, causing an increase in the population of offshore structures. The overwhelming majority of these structures are bottom founded and mostly made out of steel. Over these decades much experience has been gained with the design and...

Net zero energy is already an ambitious target for several buildings, especially since the DIRECTIVE 2010/31/EU that requires increasing the number of nearly zero-energy buildings. The existing commercial building stock needs to be included, in order to achieve the 2020 EU environmental targets. The main barriers of zero-energy refurbishment of...

The study proposes a systematic and exploratory design strategy for determining the HLCV design capabilities. Accordingly, a Monte Carlo simulation optimisation model has been developed based on SDDP approach to align with this strategy. The model can be used as a decision support tool to assess the investment decisions on the design...

In this thesis we describe a general framework to determine counterparty credit risk. Interest rates as risk factor will in this framework be generated by a Monte Carlo simulation and described by means of a stochastic model. We describe three equilibrium models that can apply the interest rate simulation. The characteristics of these models on...

Over the last centuries, Dutch rivers such as the Rhine have been heavily trained for the purpose of the safe discharge of water, sediment and ice, and navigability. After the notorious flood events of 1993 and 1995 along the Rhine, new large-scale river works were initiated, such as the Room for the River (RfR) programme, to increase flood...

Europe’s transport sector is predominantly fuelled by oil products, fuels which are finite and emit large amounts of greenhouse gasses (i.e. CO2 and NOx) upon combustion. Therefore the sector is faced with stricter emission control regulations in the coming decade. The use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a fuel has shown prosperous results for...

Large-scale river projects are executed on the Dutch rivers to meet increased flood conveyance standards. Because the projects bring variation to the standardised river profile, they are expected to induce increased river dynamics. The consequences are higher dredging costs and more disruption to inland navigation. All river intervention plans...

Procter & Gamble is an international producer and distributor of FMCG. The current inventory management practices at P&G, and for the Babycare category in particular, do not result in the target service and inventory levels. This thesis questions how the inventory management practices for the Babycare category should operate in order to achieve...

The development of systems that allow unmanned aerial vehicles, known as UAVs, to perform tasks autonomously is a current trend in aerospace research. The specific aim of this thesis is to study and achieve vision-based automatic landing of a quadrotor UAV on a floating platform, a known target that possesses oscillatory behavior. The research...
