The demand for higher precision arithmetic is increasing due to the rapid development of new computing paradigms. The novel posit number representation system, as introduced by John L. Gustafson, claims to be able to provide more accurate answers to mathematical problems with equal or less number of bits compared to the well-established IEEE 754...

Life scientists are faced with the tough challenge of developing high-performance computer simulations of their increasingly complex models. BioDynaMo is an open-source biological simulation platform that aims to alleviate them from the intricacies that go into development. Life scientists are able to base their models on top of BioDynaMo’s...

When a grounding incident occurs, the officer of the watch is usually unable to assess the severity of the damage. Most ships do have damage response procedures in place. In case of military ships these are well developed, where a well-trained crew, in the form of damage parties, is available to respond adequately. For non-navy ships, this is...

This thesis explores what it takes to make innovation at ING’s PACE accelerator more effective. PACE is ING’s innovation methodology, combining design thinking, agile working and the lean start-up approach into one whole. Within ING’s corporate accelerator track PACE is used to develop disruptive value propositions.

Bicycle helmets reduce the chance of certain injuries such as skull fractures according to various research. However, they are not designed to prevent other injuries such as concussions or traumatic brain injury. This is due to test regulations, which only test for high speed linear accelerations. In reality however, low speed as well as oblique...

The multi-way hash join is one of the commonly used and time-consuming database operations. Many algorithms have been developed to accelerate this operation, some of which use accelerators such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). However, most of the previous work was focused on computation-intensive operations such as (de)compression,...

The acoustics of a space contribute much to the perceived size and atmosphere of the environment. Modeling these acoustics in virtual environments can make a big improvement to the immersion of the player. There are very accurate models that can reproduce realistic acoustics in virtual spaces, but these are computationally very expensive....

Since the 1950s, numerical models are widely used in reservoir simulators to predict and optimize oil recovery from petroleum reservoirs. Commercial simulators typically combine multiphase porous media flow models with a separate module for the transport of tracers. By decoupling flow and transport, the transport equation can be solved using a...

The building industry produces 40% of the total amount of waste in the Netherlands and almost all of this waste leads to landfill loading. This has been the start for this research into a circular biobased composite façade.

The question for building materials is expected to increase in the future and some common used materials impend...

Problem situation - Global population is expected to double its size in 2030 (EMF, 2013), so will global consumption. Resource scarcity and associated environmental impact has shown that the current way of conducting business is not sustainable (Bocken et al., 2014). A promising alternative is proposed; circular economy. This new economic system...

An increasing environmental concern and a growing interest of environmentally friendly and renewable materials is driving the growth of the bio-based composite sector. From 2010 to 2020, it is expected that the use of natural fibres as a reinforcement in composites will be doubled. Bio-based composites are already widely applied within the...

Static balancing is a technique to create static equilibrium in a mechanism for any configuration. Auxiliary links and many springs are usually added to achieve static balance for spatial parallel mechanisms. This increases inertia and complexity of the system. This paper first presents a theoretically perfect static balancing solution for a...

Future high-energy physics demands higher magnetic fields to attain higher beam energies and thus needs novel superconductingmaterials in accelerator magnet applications. Current superconductors operate in the temperature range between 1.8 and 4.2 K and attain 8 T in modern operational machines. Meanwhile, prototypes have been built to operate...

The modelling of non-gravitational forces acting on a satellite (especially a GNSS satellite) started half a century ago. Their modelling to low Earth orbiters (LEOs), however, are more recent because of the dominating atmospheric drag, the modelling of which requires the precision of recent atmospheric models. However, this is not an issue for...

Prototype single layer armour units on a breakwater slope are observed to break. To predict when breakage occurs, the objective of this research project is to obtain knowledge on, and measurements of the rocking behaviour and failure mode of single layer armour units. A single cube on a breakwater slope is subjected to investigations. An...

With increasing velocities of trains, passenger comfort starts to play a larger role in the design of railway bridges. There is little experience with the Eurocode passenger comfort criterion in the Netherlands. It is relevant for the industry to have a way to fulfil this criterion, also in an early stage of railway bridge design. A sufficiently...

In recent years the use of co-processors to accelerate specific tasks is becoming more common. To simplify the use of these accelerators in software, the OpenCL framework has been developed. This framework provides programs a cross-platform interface for using accelerators. The ?-VEX processor is a run-time reconfigurable VLIW processor. It...

Image Processing is an emerging field: every year new applications are introduced, and these are pushing the hardware requirements. This thesis looks at the design of a hardware accelerator to accelerate several filters used in Image Processing: 2D Convolution, Census Transform, and Local Binary Patterns. At Intel, these filters are used for...
