To fulfil the increase in global demand of clean energy, the dimensions of offshore wind turbines are expected to increase with greater capacities and move further offshore in deep waters. For these conditions, the diameter of the monopile will have to increase beyond current manufacturing capacities. The slip joint connection can provide a...

Shipping plays a crucial role in modern society, but has to reduce its impact on the environment. The commercial availability of power electronic converters and lithium-ion batteries provides an opportunity to improve performance of ships energy systems while reducing their environmental impact. However, the degrees of freedom in control for...

neering (SE). Nowadays, this approach is more and more instructed by clients in the Netherlands. The switch to Systems Engineering was necessary because of the development of integrated contracts (UAV-GC; Uniform Administrative Conditions for Integrated Contracts) such as Design-Build-Finance-Maintain (DBFM) and Design & Construct (D&C)....

Nowadays, wheel-rail (W/R) interfaces are suffering from the practical problems (e.g. wear, rolling contact defects) with the increase of train speed and traffic density. For accurate prediction of wear and/or growth of rolling contact defects, rapid determination of detailed contact responses (i.e. contact stresses & strains) using...

The Vessel Maneuvering Prediction (VMP) model, which was developed in a previous work with the aim of predicting the interaction between vessels in ports and waterways, is optimized in this paper by considering the relative position and vessel size (length and beam). The calibration is carried out using AIS data of overtaking vessels in the...

Photovoltaic Technologies in recent years have gained immense attention owing to reduced costs and increasing efficiencies. While decades of research in Photovoltaic Thermal (PVT) technologies, producing thermal and electrical energy simultaneously have brought these costs further down, improving a system’s overall performance. PVT collectors...

A quick-scan algorithm has been developed in order to evaluate rooftop PV potential in the Netherlands. Both its panel fitting and yield prediction functions have been validated with existing systems monitored by Solar Monkey. The calculation times of different parts of the algorithm were measured and decreased while keeping the accuracy of the...

Several philosophical issues in connection with computer simulations rely on the assumption that results of simulations are trustworthy. Examples of these include the debate on the experimental role of computer simulations (Parker in Synthese 169(3):483–496, 2009; Morrison in Philos Stud 143(1):33–57, 2009), the nature of computer data ...

A stepwise experimental design procedure to obtain reliable data from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) was developed. The proposed procedure aims at determining sets of additional measurements (besides available ones) that guarantee the identifiability of key process variables, which means that their value can be calculated from other,...

Deterioration of gait and balance, whether from aging, disease, or injury, has been linked to reduced mobility and increased risk of falling. Wearable sensing technologies, such as inertial measurement units (IMUs), may augment clinical assessments by providing continuous gait and balance data at an increased resolution. The objective of this...

This paper describes the steps involved in the design, construction, and testing of a gasifier-specific solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. The design choices are based on reported thermodynamic simulation results for the entire gasifier- gas cleanup-SOFC system. The constructed SOFC system is tested and the measured parameters are compared...

According to literature, the benefits of BIM can be well found in complex projects such as healthcare. When well implemented, the use of BIM as a tool for communication and collaboration can lead to a higher design quality and quality of the realized building, as well as increased efficiency and costs savings.
BIM can be used for integrated...

An accurate prediction of propeller hull interaction is an important step in the design of a new vessel. The prediction of full-scale flow phenomena, which eliminates scale effects, is becoming available due to increasing computational power. However, the complexity of full-scale CFD calculations combined
with a lack of validation data...

Automated tape or fiber placement (ATP/AFP) with in-situ consolidation has been identified as a promising manufacturing technique for thermoplastic (TP) composites, which are highly in-demand in the aerospace industry for future aircraft structural applications. This manufacturing technique is attractive since it has the potential to eliminate...

Offshore wind generated electricity is currently one of the most promising sources of energy to contribute in creating a sustainable global energy mix. The latter is essential for minimising the detrimental impact of human-induced accelerated climate change. The cost of offshore wind power has strongly decreased over the past years due to ...

This report proposes improvements of the land surface model (LSM) used in the turbulence-resolving Dutch Atmospheric Large-Eddy Simulation model (DALES). Important changes include the infiltration of precipitation, the parametrization of the soil hydraulic functions and the formulation of the soil water extraction by vegetation roots. The...

The limitation in quantity and quality of climate data, in particular rainfall measurements, directly affects the reliability of hydrological models, which negatively impacts on the quality of water resources planning and management. This is obviously true in poorly-gauged or in transboundary river catchments with limited practice of data...

The restoration of the walking function of paraplegic patients requires long and extensive training. Physicians themselves are not able to provide this training due to the physical labour required. Robots and soft exoskeletons are in development to assist the physicians in this task, however, they are either bulky and restrictive or lack a...

The validity of 3D primitives in 3D GIS datasets is often a prerequisite for using them in simulation and decision-making software, e.g. visibility analysis, noise pollution assessment, and energy estimation. However, while agreed definitions exist (in the international standard ISO19107), most software vendors ignore them and implement simpler...
