Physical systems in the continuous domain are often solved using computer-aided software because of their complexity. Preserving the physical quantities from the continuous domain in the discrete domain is therefore of utmost importance. There is however a broad range of techniques that can accomplish the translation between the continuous and...

The Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral is the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Liverpool. It was constructed between 1962 and 1967, to the 1959 competition winning design of Sir Frederick Gibberd. The roof of the building is crowned by a tapering lantern formed from coloured glass adhered by means of an epoxy-based mortar. This construction method was...

Turret structures within FPSO's are subjected to a variety of repeated loads, due to the harsh environment they operate in during their service live, meaning that fatigue is a governing limit state in turret structural design. Turret structural components are connected by arc-welded joints which are considered particularly susceptible to fatigue...

In the Shared Studio Lab, the focus lies on the translation of the design in the city of Bandung, Indonesia. The city of Bandung was once established by the Dutch as an important transport hub, governmental & military base and travel destination for the Dutch colonial society. After Indonesia became officially independent in 1949, the city...

The thesis aims to offer a review of a modern conceptual facade focusing on one more possible solution to sustainable facade refurbishment for existing tall buildings. There are thousands of highrise buildings in the world and almost all of them over time will require some degree of refurbishment. The premise of this thesis is based on the...

Rapid urbanisation and globalisation are bringing increasingly complex issues to the forefront. Improper planning of human activities and over exploitation of the surrounding natural resources has successfully damaged the biodiversity and the natural processes. Today humanity is at a stage where these ecosystem services are essential for our...

Research in medicine and psychology has demonstrated that placebo treatments can lead to clinically meaningful effects which are created by the context of the treatment. Therapeutic rituals are acknowledged as the core of contextual healing effects. To design for contextual healing in clinical practice, more insight is needed in the key...

Mimetic discretisation techniques are a growing field in computational physics research. Among these techniques, the recently developed mimetic spectral element method allows for exact discretisation of metric independent relations. This has been proven numerically in various mixed formulations, for instance the mixed velocity-vorticity-pressure...

In solving two-phase flows, the location of the interface between the phases is necessary to handle interface jump conditions when solving the Navier-Stokes equation. Current interface capturing and advection methods, however, suffer from various issues. The level set method uses the signed distance to the interface and the interface being the...

A growing risk of flooding in coastal areas and the corresponding development of legislation drive continuous development in the field of hydraulic engineering. Failure due to<br/>wave overtopping is not fully understood from a physical point of view. Existing knowledge gaps, processes that are not yet explained by physics or not even discovered...

The logistics industry is being modernized using information technology and robots. This change encompasses a new set of challenges in warehouses. Recently, some companies have started using robot fleets to sort products and parcels. This thesis studies those systems, and researches the combinatorial problems that arise within them. Three main...

Among women, breast cancer has the highest incidence rate of all types of cancer worldwide. For 80% of these patients, a treatment option is the surgical procedure known as breast conserving surgery (BCS). Re-excision is required in 10-60% of these patients, as positive margins are encountered post-operatively, showing the need of an intra...

Breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer in women with about 1.7 million new cases reported worldwide in 2012. The two main types of surgical treatment for breast cancer are mastectomy and lumpectomy. In mastectomy, the entire affected breast is excised whereas in lumpectomy only the tumor along with a rim of healthy tissue is excised. This...

Wireless sensor networks are commonly used to remotely and automatically monitor environments.<br/>One of the main challenges in wireless sensor networks is to use the limited available energy as efficiently as possible, to ensure longevity of the network. For such networks to survive their intended deployment period no energy may be wasted on...

Monuments are often not energy efficient, yet improving the energy performance without harming the cultural values is still a complex process. By only conserving a building without making adaptations, a mismatch can arise between the demand of the user and the building. Next to that, using Building Information Modeling (BIM) to assess the...

Turbidity currents are an essential agent of sediment transport from shallow to deeper waters. Detailed measurements of the velocity field or particle concentration are only available by means of accurate numerical simulations. In this thesis, a DNS solver for turbidity currents is presented based on the MEEVC scheme, a mass, energy, enstrophy...

Every year, 1.7 million woman are diagnosed with breast cancer worldwide. Breast Conserving Surgery (BCS) – where not the whole breast but only the tumour is dissected – is the most common and preferable treatment for these woman. However, 20 to 55% of the patients’ needs a second surgery because of positive margins. A dissected tumour has a...

Approximately 26% of all mammals is endangered and scientists estimate that half of the species will be extinct in 2100. Zoos have the potential to inspire, educate and influence a lot of people regarding wildlife conservation. Dierenpark Amersfoort, the most child-friendly zoo in the Netherlands, founded the Wildlife Fund. This fund raises...
