Whereas aberrating layers are typically viewed as an impediment to medical ultrasound imaging, they can, surprisingly, also be used to our benefit. As long as we can model the effect of an aberrating layer, we can utilize ‘model-based imaging’, the imaging technique explored throughout this thesis, to reconstruct ultrasound images where...

Given the desire to construct more structures using sustainable building materials, demand for wood and other bio-based building materials has risen dramatically over the decade. While timber itself is a carbon-neutral material and can sometimes even be carbon-negative, reusing wooden structural members made that have been in service for several...

In the field of structural and geotechnical engineering, a uniform approach to predict and model foundation settlements during the design phase of a high-rise building appears to be missing. In the Netherlands, pile foundations of tower structures underlain by compressible soil layers are challenging to model due to different stiffness and load...

We present STREAmS-2.0, an updated version of the flow solver STREAmS, first introduced in Bernardini et al. (2021) [1]. STREAmS-2.0 has an object-oriented design which separates the physics equations from the specific back-end, making the code more suitable for future expansions, such as porting to novel computing architectures or...

Short pitch corrugation is a quasi-periodic rail defect that induces a high level of noise and accelerates track degradation. This paper proposes a methodology to mitigate short pitch corrugation by rail constraint design, including four steps. In Step 1, corrugation is numerically reproduced by employing a three-dimensional (3D) finite...

This study aimed to assess the suitability of lime treatment for use in dikes in the Netherlands. The effect of this technique on the behavior of a Dutch clay was addressed by comparing the detailed response of lime-treated and natural samples at different lime contents (1.25% and 2.25%) and curing periods. A series of laboratory tests...

The heating and cooling sector is one of the biggest sectors at this moment due to drastic fluctuations in climate parameters. Even though this sector helps in making sure everyone gets comfortable temperatures at the home, office, etc., there are environmental consequences attached to them. These consequences are in terms of emissions of...

Direction of Arrival (DoA) estimation is an important topic in radar application and has significant importance for advanced driver assistant systems in the automotive industry. While there is an increasing need for higher resolution and increased target detection and DoA estimation performance, such improvements often require increased hardware...

Typically, people search images by text: users enter keywords and a search engine returns relevant results. However, this pattern has limitations. An obvious drawback is that when searching in one language, users may miss results labelled in other languages. Moreover, sometimes people know little about the object in the image and thus would not...

This research consists of two applications of image processing, namely, image compression and image denoising. Image compression aims to reduce the size of an image without losing too many features. This is often used to store a large number of images such as fingerprints. Denoising is a technique for removing noise from an image while...

Almeria is a geographical point of arrival and passage of African migrants on their migratory route to Europe. The region is home to thousands of migrants seeking work in the agricultural sector. The lack of affordable housing for these collective has led to the creation of several informal settlements around agricultural areas. <br/><br/>This...

This research project investigates the potential use of ultrasonic welding as a tool to repair impact damage inside thermoplastic composites to restore the compressive strength. Compared to the already existing method, hot-pressing, ultrasonic welding could offer faster processing times, no need for dedicated tooling, smaller and lighter...

One of the main problems with Instance-level Image Retrieval in video data is that for longer query videos or large amount of image queries, comparing all of the query images to every extracted frame is time-inefficient. This thesis aims to solve this problem by implementing Nearest Neighbour Search (NNS) algorithms and data compression methods,...

Applying deep neural networks (DNNs) for system identification (SYSID) has attracted more andmore attention in recent years. The DNNs, which have universal approximation capabilities for any measurable function, have been successfully implemented in SYSID tasks with typical network structures, e.g., feed-forward neural networks and recurrent...

<b>BACKGROUND - </b>The success of the mechanical thrombectomy treatment in acute ischemic stroke is highly dependent on mechanical clot behavior and characteristics like stiffness. This mechanical treatment is tested in clot analogs. Realistic clot analogs could potentially be made in a realistic formation environment. The effects of blood...

Interest in powered flight on Mars has been growing in recent years, and as such new developments are being made in determining the effects the Martian atmosphere has on the flow physics and performance, specifically with regards to similarity parameters: the Reynolds number &amp; the Mach number. This paper aimed to investigate whether the...

Historically, contact analysis has been an important design tool for various applications such as vehicle crash analysis or manufacturing. It is also becoming increasingly more relevant in newer fields such compliant mechanism or metamaterial design. Even though contact has been a topic of discussion for decades, there are still challenges that...

Physics-based crystal plasticity models rely on certain statistical assumptions about the collective behavior of dislocation populations on one slip system and their interactions with the dislocations on the other slip systems. One main advantage of using such physics-based constitutive dislocation models in crystal plasticity kinematic...

High angular resolution is in high demand in automotive radar. To achieve a high azimuth resolution a large aperture antenna array is required. Although MIMO technique can be used to form larger virtual apertures, a large number of transmitter-receiver channels are needed, which is still technologically challenging and costly. To circumvent this...
