Shipyards these days see an increase in customers that specify combined speed and seakeeping ability design requirements. This requires the shipyard to make a prediction of the additional installed power required to maintain a certain speed when waves are encountered. The additional required installed power is directly related to the average...

The research of this thesis focuses on the stiffness and the durability of a composite panel that consists of thin glass as outer layers and a 3D printed core element from recycled PET. Thin Alumino-silicate glass, mostly used in computers, tablets and smartphones, is known for its lightweight, flexibility, durability, high bending strength and...

As of yet, there is no consensus on the role of the cloud radiative effect (CRE) on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS). This study focuses on the seasonal and temporal variability of the CRE, to better understand the response of the firn. To do so, we combine satellite observations, climate-model output, and a snow model. We separate short-term and...

This thesis studies the radiation dose deposited on a 6U CubeSat in interplanetary orbit. The European Space Agency’s radiation data tool SPENVIS has been used to determine the proton flux in interplanetary space during a solar particle event which occurs only once every one hundred years. SPENVIS has further been applied to obtain a dose depth...

This thesis project has set out to investigate the response in fore-aft direction of a monopile wind foundation supporting an NREL 5MW turbine, offshore the coast of Taiwan, which is affected by weak to strong earthquake ground motion in combination with normal sea state conditions. The soil at the location of the monopile is layered, with sand...

The thesis investigates the possible space application of a commercial 3D NAND memory as a radiation monitor. Literature has indicated that both traditional 2D and 3D flash memories are sensitive to ionizing radiation. Where the track of particle could be seen passing through the 3D architecture. A flash memory cell stores data with a collection...

Asteroids, or more formally, Small Solar System Bodies, offer a wealth of scientific knowledge and, increasingly, economic potential. Regrettably, because of their small size and the fact that the largest groups of asteroids in the solar system are situated tens of millions of kilometers from Earth, ground based observations yield limited data,...

This report covers the development of the Locomotion system for the Lunar Zebro that is responsible for the positioning control of the six legs and the operating of the solar panel. It covers the initial problem analysis, requirement discovery, conceptual design, part identification for implementation, implementation and the first tests, their...

In-space manufacturing proves more important now than ever. The capability of creating a sustainable manufacturing strategy for spare parts or tools would significantly improve both mass budget and costs. Therefore, additive manufacturing (3D printing) in space is seen as an enabler of future scenarios that explore beyond the current boundaries...

Current-day space vehicle are equipped with a passive Thermal Protection System (TPS), but these systems operate at the edge of their capabilities. The research into the next generation reusable space vehicle demands the use of active TPS, these systems are not limited to the capabilities of the used material but depend on the active cooling...

When a source moves along a straight line with constant velocity and acts on an inhomogeneous medium, energy is radiated away from the source. This phenomenon is referred to as transition radiation. The energy radiation can also be generated by the change of velocity or path of the source (radiation in a non-uniform motion), as well as when it...

Throughout the time humans have always looked up to starry skies and wondered about travelling to the stars. With the current developments in the aerospace field, travelling to neighboring planets have never been more possible. On the top of the agendas of numerous organizations today is the exploration of the Red Planet. However, there are many...

In this work, gas phase toluene was degraded as model contaminant in an annular LED-based photocatalytic reactor under various light irradiance and illumination modes as a means to enhance the efficiency in illumination. The effect of controlled periodic illumination was first studied by exploring the effect of the duty cycle and the period and...

The Jupiter flyby of Cassini in 2001 allowed to study the gas giant in detail. Jupiter’s inner magnetosphere is populated by high energy particles, causing an intense radiation observable throughout the microwave regime. The re-calibration of the Cassini RADAR instrument has allowed for constraining the energy distribution of the electron...

In this report, we derive some tools that can be used to construct semi-analytical solution for the electromagnetic field of a dipole in an arbitrary multilayer system. The proposed methods consist of a recursive determination of electric fields -- using the mathematical principle behind a Fabry-Perot interferometer -- and two different...

Offshore barge mooring is considered a critical operation. The vessels need to be in close proximity, but may under no circumstance collide. Mooring lines and fenders are installed to keep the vessels in place. Experience has shown that lines tend to break occasionally; one of the reasons for this can be the interaction effect of the two vessels...

In this report an overview of the techniques used to perform measurements on a Josephson radiation detector is given. This experiment could lead to the observation of Majorana bound states, which can be used to realize a topological quantum computer. Software for the plotting of data from one- and two-variable measurements was developed, with...
