Offshore wind farms are increasing in size and moving further from shore. Service operation vessels (SOVs) are used for offshore wind operation and maintenance (O&M) at these large far offshore sites. These large vessels typically have a smaller daughter craft (DC) on board that can assist them. This DC is however too small to provide the...

In the conceptual design phase, OEMs perform technology assessment to identify feasible solutions for their new aircraft. When the OEM is unable to assess a certain technology themselves, they consult Tier-1 suppliers to involve<br/>them in the design process. The suppliers have higher fidelity analysis tools that can help the OEM with their...

Performing crucial activities for space exploration, e.g., debris removal and on-orbit servicing, systems for Rendezvous and Proximity Operations (RPO) are required to be autonomous and scalable. Within this context, learning-based relative navigation has gained significant traction due to the latest advancements in AI and the cost-effectiveness...

The offshore wind market is rapidly growing, resulting in increasing wind turbine sizes, increasing distances to port, and a shift to deeper waters. A literature study in this thesis shows that existing wind turbine installation vessels, vessels under construction, and innovative concepts will not be able to install next-generation turbines or...

Apophis, an Aten-type asteroid, was considered a significant threat to Earth upon its discovery due to its potential impact with Earth in 2029. Although the collision has now been ruled out, Apophis will still perform an exceptionally close flyby of Earth that same year at a distance of 32,000 km from the surface. This event presents a unique...

Boundary layer ingestion is an airframe-propulsion integration technology capable of enhancing aircraft propulsive efficiency. The Propulsive Fuselage Concept, a tube-and-wing layout with an rear-fuselage-mounted propulsor in the boundary layer ingestion configuration, especially takes advantage this. However, the relation between physical shape...

For the first time since the 1970s, concrete plans are in motion to bring humans back to the Moon through the Artemis programme. The dawning era of space exploration aims to set the groundwork for long-term off-Earth settlement, with sights on bringing the first humans to Mars. In order to provide a safe means of inhabiting extraterrestrial (ET)...

This article examines the potential implications of using iron powder as an alternative fuel on the design and performance of container ships. Iron powder is a relatively new alternative energy carrier and one in which little research has been done into the application on-board vessels as part of the maritime energy transition. The key...

Modern High Level Synthesis (HLS) tools succeed well in their engineering productivity goal, but still require toolset and target technology specific modifications to the source code to guide the process towards an efficient implementation. Furthermore, their end result is a fixed function accelerator with limited field and runtime...

The design space of power plants of naval surface vessels is ever expanding. As a result, the design space has become too large for a human design team to fully explore. Therefore, a concept exploration tool is introduced to generate and evaluate all possible concepts within the design space. An optimal solution is chosen based on ship...

Humans are embarking on a new era of space exploration with the plan of sending crewed spacecraft to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. Extravehicular activities (EVAs) will be an essential part of the scientific activities to be carried out in these missions, and they will involve extensive geological fieldwork. These EVAs entail many challenges as...

Aircraft maintenance design aims to identify strategies that render the aircraft reliable for flight in a cost-efficient manner. These are often conflicting objectives. Moreover, existing studies on maintenance design often limit themselves to only one type of maintenance strategy, overlooking other potentially dominating designs. We propose...

We introduce quantum pin codes: a class of quantum CSS codes. Quantum pin codes are a generalization of quantum color codes and Reed-Muller codes and share a lot of their structure and properties. Pin codes have gauge operators, an unfolding procedure and their stabilizers form so-called $\ell $ -orthogonal spaces meaning that the joint...

With an increasing complexity of systems, systematic design space exploration is required for fair analysis and comparison of architecture design options. However, there is still a need for a benchmark problem to support the development &amp; evaluation of optimization algorithms and system architecture design space modeling methods, and to...

Quantum algorithms can be expressed as quantum circuits when the circuit model of computation is adopted. Such a circuit description is usually hardware-agnostic, that is, it does not consider the limitations that the quantum hardware might have. In order to make quantum algorithms executable on quantum devices they need to comply to their...

Bacteria and other microorganisms are known and studied as an essential part of daily life and they are utilized in a variety of fields. This work identifies applications in nanotechnology and space research, using the same bacterium for both: Shewanella oneidensis. The extracellular electron transfer (EET) mechanism situated mainly in the cell...

As a move away from the natural gas based heating, the Dutch government identified district heating networks as most economical alternative to the natural gas. However, the future plans for the district heating sector have faced challenge on the question of the design of heat market and management of factors such as ownership, network access,...
