The demand for air travel is increasing as more people gain access to commercial aviation. As the current generation of aircraft makes use of fossil fuel combustion, this growth results in an increase in the global emissions. This is at odds with the worldwide efforts of reducing the adverse effects of climate change. Therefore, advanced...

The Segment barrier is a conceptual design for a storm surge barrier consisting of individual concrete segments which can be combined to form a barrier. The structure is designed with the ability to expand in size to deal with the uncertainties of global mean sea level rise by stacking the individual segments into various configurations. At its...

Ideation is simultaneously one of the most investigated and most intriguing aspects of design. The reasons for this attention are partly due to its importance in design and innovation, and partly due to an array of conflicting results and explanations. In this study, we develop an integrative perspective on individual ideation by combining...

To validate rainfall intensity in urban areas measured by satellite a first prototype proof of concept is introduced and tested. Using low-cost electronics an umbrella is converted into a mobile acoustic rain gauge which can be used in urban areas to measure rainfall intensities. A reed switch is placed in the umbrella to measure whether the...

The next step in spaceflight, among others, is the development of a reusable launch vehicle (RLV) suitable for manned missions. All existing designs of re-entry vehicles are either ballistic or low L/D vehicles. In the future, the aim is to develop a high L/D vehicle, because such vehicles experience lower g-loads, making the flight comfortable...

Over the years, applications for the turbomachinery usage and the operating range during its lifetime have widened. The single operating point optimized design leads to a problematic phenomenon called ‘local optimization’ which means that the design has a very narrow range of better performance around that point and deteriorates significantly at...

The development of computational tools to aid with early-stage design of buildings is an emerging topic of great value. Developing a good conceptual design for a building is important because it can save a great amount of time and resources over the entire building process. This report discusses the project StructuralComponents 6, a continuation...

The Port of Rotterdam has many old harbours located close to the Rotterdam city center that are no longer suitable to be used for industrial purposes. Meanwhile due to expansion and population growth of the city, more recreational spaces are needed. The idea is to use the abundant dredged material from the Port of Rotterdam to fill in and...

In this thesis, an alternative cable lay system was designed that can be used on existing non-cable lay vessels. This design is conceptualized and analyzed for a specific market, following the steps in the engineering design process. The technical and economic analysis investigates the feasibility and competitiveness of the new cable lay system....

Galveston Bay is an area in the Upper Texas Coast (USA) historically suffering from the impact of several large magnitude hurricanes. In 2008 hurricane Ike, one of the most devastating natural disasters in Unites States recent past, raised awareness of the flood vulnerability problem of the area and triggered the beginning of different proposals...

There is a growing demand for renewable sources of energy of which wave energy conversion is one. The Ocean Falls is an oscillating water column (OWC) system invented by BAM Infraconsult b.v. This system differs from conventional OWC systems since it includes a connection tube and an adjustable back wall. The OWC system is a resonance system for...

Setting up or dismantling a shiprepair yard requires vast amounts of time and resources. Current shiprepair yards are land-based facilities that can not be moved when demand for their services declines. A mobile shiprepair facility would be able to and Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DS&C) expressed interest to investigate the potential...

Membrane shells, which have minimized bending moments under certain load conditions, are regarded as ideal structural forms in terms of material efficiency. Most of the existing numerical form-finding methods are based on discretizing membranes into finite panels or funicular networks and focusing on gravitational loading only. In order to...

This paper presents a novel approach to modelling and documenting design knowledge: to use parametric technology to explicitly store knowledge which exists in a group of people (such as a company), so that it can be reused over many projects and grow over time when more projects are designed. This approach has been applied and tested on a test...

Verschoof, Steyn (author)
Multi-use of offshore platforms is a long-term research challenge which aims to combine food and energy production at sea. Research in this field is in its infancy, literature is scarce and without much cross-referencing. The aim of this thesis has been to develop a coherent set of recommendations for the further development of multi-use...

As the aviation sector keeps expanding, a growing interest in technologies that can reduce the dependency from non-renewable energy sources, both for economic and environmental reasons, has led researchers to investigate the opportunities offered by the electrification of flight. It is theorized that the use of electrically powered machines as...

In a Design-Driven Innovation (Verganti, 2014) approach, the goal was to innovate on the meaning of a medium format system in order to find a viable product solution. As a result the vision is to step away from the traditional mindset of considering the camera as a box that simply records an image, but as a smart tool that supports the...
