The idea of capturing an asteroid has gained more and more attention in recent years, sparked by rapid technological development and the growing general interest into the subject, both by scientists and commercial parties. The focus of this thesis project lies on transferring a near-Earth asteroid (NEA) from its original orbit to a safe, stable...

This paper analyzes high-frequency interactions between a Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) and High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) grid resonances by studying their effect on the system stability. The recent appearance of converter-related instabilities due to high-frequency oscillations at the converter's ac side raises concerns about whether...

To optimise mining in a safe, geotechnically controlled and economical most beneficial way in Mine 2 of the Stjernøy mine, a choice has been made to review the current mining method, sublevel open stoping, and a different mining method, vertical crater retreat. The Stjernøy mine is an open pit and underground mine for Nepheline Syenite and this...

An experimental investigation was done regarding the propulsion system and airframe integration issues associated with the novel Flying V configuration. The experimental investigations involved a series of wind tunnel tests with a 4.6% scale half model, conducted in the TU Delft OJF low speed wind tunnel. Balance measurements allowed significant...

The Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier is an icon of Dutch hydraulic engineering. Downstream of the barrier, large local erosion pits (scour holes) have formed adjacent to the applied bed protection after its construction. It was expected during the design phase that these would develop, but both the magnitude of the scour hole depth as well as...

The role of the Coriolis effect in the initial formation of bottom patterns in a tidal channel is studied by means of a linear stability analysis. The key finding is that the mechanism generating oblique tidal sand ridges on the continental shelf is also present in confined tidal channels. As a result, the Coriolis effect causes the fastest...

The main objective of this research is to provide a general nonlinear model of adjustable piezoelectric microwires with the ability to tune the stability conditions. In order to increase the controllability and improve system characteristics, only a part of the substrate is electrostatically actuated and the piezoelectric voltage is also...

Tidal inlet systems are often highly valuable and sometimes even unique ecosystems. However, field measurements show that tidal inlet systems are sensitive to changing exogenous conditions, such as rising sea levels. This thesis aims to investigate to what extent the adjacent sea influences the stability and equilibrium state of the tidal inlet....

More than 30% of the world’s hydrocarbon reserves are located in carbonate reservoirs, and this percentage is likely to increase, as a result of discoveries of new giant oil fields in carbonate rocks, generically named “Pre-salt layers”. However, there are still some problems in understanding karst systems that still unresolved. The karst caves...

An exploration into the stability of 3D printed thin-walled concrete elements during manufacturing is presented. The failure mechanisms, material parameters and analysis methods are presented. Self-buckling is the dominant failure mechanism, where the Young's modulus plays an important role. Material experiments to assess the Young's modulus are...

Quintic Duffing oscillator is considered. Amplitude-phase relations are derived using averaging theorem and perturbation methods. First The forced quintic system is studied. Stability regions are com-pared to the general case with quintic-qubic non-linearity. Numerical results show that Perturbationmethod and averaging are in agreement with each...

Despite widespread research into the possibilities of improving aerodynamic efficiency, a plateau seems to have been reached for the conventional configuration. Hence, the potential of unconventional configurations are being investigated in recent years. Flying V is one such configuration that promises a lift to drag ratio about 24 in cruise...

This work focuses on adaptive neural dynamic surface control (DSC) for an extended class of nonlinear MIMO strict-feedback systems whose control gain functions are continuous and possibly unbounded. The method is based on introducing a compact set which is eventually proved to be an invariant set: thanks to this set, the restrictive...

Selective Frequency Damping (SFD) is a popular method for the computation of globally unstable steady-state solutions in fluid dynamics. The approach has two model parameters whose selection is generally unclear. In this article, a detailed analysis of the influence of these parameters is presented, answering several open questions with...

We derive an idealized model of a gravel-sand river bifurcation and analyze its stability properties. The model requires nodal point relations that describe the ratio of the supply of gravel and sand to the two downstream branches. The model predicts changes in bed elevation and bed surface gravel content in the two bifurcates under...

Three interest rate models are researched: Displaced Exponential-Vasicek, Hull-White one factor and Hull-White two factors with time-dependent volatility parameters. The motivation for this is two-fold: firstly, we would like to understand how the capital calculations would be impacted when yield curves are modelled under the three different...

Over the past few years, space missions to minor celestial bodies have gained increased attention from the space community. A prime example is the selection of Psyche as NASA’s fourteenth Discovery Program mission. Orbital dynamics in the vicinity of small irregular bodies pose great challenges for trajectory design. In particular, science...

Learning capabilities are a key requisite for an autonomous agent operating in dynamically changing and complex environments, where pre-programming is not anymore possible. Furthermore, it is essential to guarantee that the learning agent will act safely by considering its stability properties. In this thesis, novel conditions are proposed,...
