Maintenance providers in commercial aviation are looking into new strategies to improve maintenance operations and aircraft availability in order to reduce cost and increase customer satisfaction. Aircraft availability and thus profitability...

Grabs are often used for unloading bulk carriers that transport iron ore cargoes around the globe. The unloading process is time-consuming, and terminals strive to maximise their turnover capacity. Grab performance is a combination of maximum crane capacity, grab design and bulk material behaviour. Due to bulk uncertainties occurred by varying...

When propellers are operating near the free surface,  phenomenon called ventilation might occur. Due to insufficient immersion and high thrust loading, the propeller draws air, resulting in a reduced thrust. Reduced thrust may have consequences such as loss of propulsive power, control and steerability, and may therefore be...

Metamaterials are a new class of materials where the properties crucially depend on the design of the unit cell that is periodically repeated in space. In this study a new metamaterial unit cell concept has been proposed, inspired by a class of space structures known as deployable masts. The ability of these structures to contract to a fraction...

Since the aerospace industry is continuously looking for new strong and lightweight solutions to existing aircraft parts, Fused Composite Manufacturing has much potential for future applications as it incorporates both the freedom of design and a continuous fiber reinforcement. The current state of the technology is of low maturity as...

More than half a century after the first application of composite materials in aircraft, the accurate prediction of their failure remains a pressing and unresolved issue. Another important limitation continues to be the low transverse strength of unidirectional composite plies, which can lead to premature failure in common laminates such as the...

This study reports on the effect of artists’ paint formulation on degradation rates of TiO2-based oil paints. Titanium white oil paint exists in a multitude of different recipes, and the effect of the formulation on photocatalytic binder<br/>degradation kinetics is unknown. These formulations contain, among others, one or both titanium dioxide...

Old yellow enzymes are able to catalyze asymmetric C=C reductions. A mediated electroenzymatic process to regenerate the NADPH in combination with an old yellow enzyme was investigated. Due to the fact that the overall process was affected by a broad set of parameters, a design of experiments (DoE) approach was chosen to identify suitable...

Surrogate-based Optimization is a useful approach when the objective function is computationally expensive to evaluate, compared to Simulation-based Optimization. In the surrogate-based method, analytically tractable “surrogate models” (also known as “Response Surface Models — RSMs” or “metamodels”), are constructed and validated for each...

Building performance simulations are usually timeconsuming. They may account for the major portion of time spent in Computational Design Optimization (CDO), for instance, annual hourly daylight and energy simulations. In this case, the optimization may become less efficient or even infeasible within a limited time frame of real-world projects,...

This thesis has explored the possibility of using carbon nanotubes (CNT) as a novel material for through-silicon vias (TSV) in 3D-integrated circuits. With the steady downscaling trend of the semiconductor industry, a major limiting factor to the overall performance of the device is the delay from interconnects; a trend that is worsening over...

In the design of objects for children’s play, support from psychology is often sought in general developmental overviews, typologies of play, and age-related performance and preference descriptions. These sources may give an insight into global aspects of child development but have limited utility for understanding the situated motivations of an...

Using Reversal Theory (Apter, 2002, 2007a) as an example this paper proposes a way to ‘translate’ a psychological concept into the realm of design in a way that maximizes understanding and potential for application in the context of play. The given presentation of Reversal Theory is the result of the analysis of student’s use of available...

The main topic of this thesis is the investigation of the synergies between High-Throughput Experimentation (HTE) and Chemometric Optimization methodologies in Catalysis research and of the use of such methodologies to maximize the advantages of using HTE methods. Several case studies were analysed including: 1) the exploration of a terpene...
