Software testing is important to make sure that code works as intended. Traditionally, this verification process has relied on manual testing, which is not only time-consuming but also susceptible to human errors. Through the use of automated test case generation techniques, we can automate this process and reduce the time and effort needed to...

Coastal structures such as breakwaters can mitigate the erosive effects of sea level rise by protecting shorelines from wave impact. The Reef Enhancing Breakwater (REB) is a modular, permeable structure designed to dissipate wave energy and boost marine biodiversity by providing suitable habitats. This research investigates...

Steerable medical instruments are used to reach difficult locations in the body during minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Researching these instruments helps to further improve their performance and reduce their size making them even less invasive. However, developing new technology can be expensive and often complete custom test rigs are build...

The aeronautical industry has set ambitious goals to reduce its environmental impact and become sustainable. Addressing rising emissions involves strategies such as reducing structural weight, due to its direct impact on fuel consumption, and the use of new materials and manufacturing techniques. Research and development on thermoplastic...

The imminence of anthropogenic climate change has motivated a global energy transition towards sustainable power generation. Offshore wind—an important contributor to the energy transition—is expanding, not only in turbine size and number of installations, but also into regions with harsher environmental conditions. One of those conditions in...

The use of non-destructive tests for assessing the material status of concrete structures in the Netherlands remains relatively uncommon, despite the growing demand for the preservation of existing structures under the VenR policy of Rijkswaterstaat. Skepticism towards NDTs is reflected in the scarcity of documented case studies in publicly...

Coastal areas face increasing threat from erosion. The use of coastal protection structures is imperative to counter this. Concrete “armouring” is widely used due to durability and cost-effectiveness. Conventional methods of “armouring” result in habitat degradation and loss of biodiversity. ECOncrete developed Coastalock, an armour unit...

Since the introduction of cementitious materials, shrinkage-induced earlyage cracking (EAC) has emerged as a significant issue that negatively influences the function, durability, and aesthetics of concrete structures like dams, tunnels, and underground garages. This thesis aims to develop new experimental and modelling techniques that help...

With the advancement of Artificial Intelligence leading to increasingly human-like outputs, assessing a machine’s ability to exhibit human-like intelligence has become more essential than ever. This study aims to investigate how human-like chess players perceive four conditions: one human opponent and three different types of algorithms. One of...

Ice accumulation on aircraft surfaces is a prevalent issue, and icephobic coating strategies can be implemented to assist in the removal of or ice on an aircraft. However little is known regarding the effects of novel icephobic coatings and surfaces on ice adhesion strength, which is difficult to measure and quantify, and is typically reported...

The potential of utility-scale airborne wind energy (AWE) systems to contribute significantly to the energy transition hinges on their large-scale deployment, which depends on the cost-competitiveness and complementarity with conventional wind turbines. Central to the assessment of these metrics is understanding long-term energy production,...

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) forecasts an accelerated increase in wind installations as a result of the aggressive climate change and green energy objectives set by the majority of countries. As a consequence, new regions worldwide that were previously thought to be unsuitable for the construction of offshore wind farms due to the soil...

Aeroacoustic testing in wind tunnels is crucial for understanding and mitigating the noise generation mechanisms in several devices while maintaining satisfactory aerodynamic performance in the conceptual design stage. However, current measurements in closed-section wind tunnels face challenges in terms of installation, due to the effect of the...

Hydrogen is one of aviation's most promising fuel alternatives in the coming years. However, to store it, a large and light vessel is needed. <br/><br/>The solution to this problem can be the carbon fibre fuel tank. Composite structures provide significant weight savings, which is crucial in this application. However, despite its superior...

About 70 prestressed concrete T-beam bridges, constructed in the Netherlands between 1953–1977, are still in use today with many located in the main highway network. This type of bridge consists of prefabricated and prestressed T-shaped beams, with an integrated deck slab, cross-beams and transverse prestressing. Even if these bridges are well...

Model-based testing (MBT) is applied for the verification of simple simulation models used in modeling &amp; simulation for decision-making. It is found that MBT of simulation models is not discussed much in literature, and that existing case studies on this topic do not give guidelines for test model design. It is established that testing...
