A 1:5 scaled rowing boat had been designed by a previous research group to determine the performance of rowing blades with different sizes and blade angles. In this research modifications were done to allow more control of the rowing motion. The aim of this study is to assess whether an angled oar blade can reach faster speeds with the same...

Amsterdam and many other cities consist of a network of old quay walls, which sometimes have been constructed over a century ago. A large uncertainty exists concerning the current safety of these quay walls and their remaining service lifetime. In the current framework for the assessment of old urban quay walls, the influence of timber creep in...

In this research the influence of the rower behavior and rigging setup on the boat performance is investigated in a data-driven model. There are different rowing styles and techniques between rowers. Making rowers row in synchrony, while important for the boat performance, is not easy. Rowers have their own signature rowing curve, of which only...

On all levels of rowing, a general rule is that you have to row together. Rowing together has no clear-cut definition. However, it is known that each rower has his or her own style, which can be registered in movement patterns and force curves. The big question is how to combine these individual styles such that the crew works together in the...

Rowing is a competitive sport where victory is determined by fine margins. In the past, the focus has been on optimizing the shell. Due to the increasing regulations placed on the shell design, the scope for manoeuvring in this area is greatly limited. This increases the necessity to focus on the less explored option of propulsion in rowing. The...

In order to perform medical surgeries, hospitals keep large inventories of surgical instruments. These instruments need to be sterilized before each surgery. Typically the instruments are kept in trays. Multiple trays may be required for a single surgery, while a single tray may contain instruments that are required for multiple surgical...

In recent years the world is becoming more aware on the burden of the fossil fuels on the planets ecosystem as well as climate. One of the major reasons is, due to greenhouse gasses in which most of them are caused by carbon release by consumption of fossil fuels. The building sector in almost every country is a major contributor to the...

Context is a crucial concept in architecture, despite the frequent ambiguity around its use. It is present in many architectural thoughts and discussions, while a critical discursive reflection is absent from contemporary architectural theory and practice. Situated within this schizophrenic condition in which the notion is both absent and...

As is well known, everybody can profit from a little bit of cooling in hot environments. This is also the case for athletes. In hot and humid environments, most of the main mechanisms of thermoregulation are rendered ineffective or are not efficient enough anymore to compensate for the heat production during high intensity exercise. Prolonged...

The flow motions in the turbulent boundary layer between water and a rowing boat initiate a turbulent skin friction. Reducing this skin friction results in better rowing performances. A Taylor-Couette (TC) facility was used to verify the power losses due to velocity fluctuations P<sub>V′</sub> in relation to the total power, as a function of...
