Pelka, S. (author)
The potential of households to adapt their energy use to the conditions of the energy system remains largely untapped due to shortcomings in consumer governance (i.e., the organization of household energy use). A lack of price signals and services leads to uncoordinated household energy use. Various proposals exist for updating consumer...

Owen, C.C. (author)
The imminence of anthropogenic climate change has motivated a global energy transition towards sustainable power generation. Offshore wind—an important contributor to the energy transition—is expanding, not only in turbine size and number of installations, but also into regions with harsher environmental conditions. One of those conditions in...

This master thesis provides a review of dynamic energy contracts and their role in shifting electricity consumption in households in the Netherlands. In this research the mixed-methods approach is used to identify changes in electricity consumption behavior of consumers with a dynamic energy contract compared to consumers with a fixed energy...

The main focus of this thesis is on a thin glass sandwich panel combined with a three-dimensional printed core pattern. The core pattern provides stiffness to the panel, but it also influences the daylight transmission. The goal of this research is to design a façade system which can dynamically improve the daylight performance, effectively...

The Netherlands, renowned for its flat landscape and strategic location at the confluence of major rivers, combined with fertile soil and a mild climate, boasts optimal natural conditions for agricultural production. However, the success of the Dutch agricultural sector and its developments has significant implications for biodiversity, as...

In the midst of economic turmoil and environmental adversity, Bedouin communities in the Levant demonstrate remarkable resilience through their architectural practices and communal ethos. This study examines the spatial dynamics of Bedouin settlements, exploring their adaptation strategies during the economic crisis of 2023 in Lebanon, and...

Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations are used in a diverse set of fields such as aerodynamics, automotive, biomedical engineering and wind impact. With the advancements in technology the scale of these simulations has increased significantly. This has resulted in \textit{massive} CFD simulations --- simulations that do not fully fit...

Making decisions when future conditions are uncertain is a challenging endeavor. This thesis develops a framework to analyse flood risk and create Dynamic Adaptive Policy Pathways, which can provide insights in the behaviour of flood risk protection measures in many future scenarios. The pathways are used to identify robust measures, dead ends...

Responding rapidly to epidemic outbreaks presents significant challenges, due to resource, capacity and time limitations. Anticipatory Action (AA) is a newly emerging strategy in the field of humanitarian aid, designed to preemptively address potential crises. By taking impact-reducing actions before a disaster strikes, AA seeks to minimize...

As the power system grows more complex and active, equivalent models have become a solution for modelling parts of the network that have limited observability or are confidential or too complex to simulate otherwise. In the past decade, this topic has also made its way to distribution networks because of its transition towards an active network,...

Muurling, Lidewij (author)
Overconsumption plays a big part in the current environmental crisis, making a shift towards sufficient consumption imperative. Since overconsumption is often a habit, triggering a stop and re-think process in the consumers' minds may be the way for reduction. Societal norms, proven effective for behaviour change, could disrupt consumption...

With renewed interest in the development of civil supersonic aircraft, their return in the future is becoming more ever more likely. The environmental impact of emissions in the stratosphere on climate and the ozone layer therefore needs to be explored. The stratospheric ozone levels determine the amount of harmful ultraviolet radiation reaching...

While the assumption of incompressible flow has been the prevailing standard for numerical simulations of wind turbine aerodynamics, the limit of this assumption is approached as the industry progresses towards increasingly higher operational tip speeds. This thesis explores the implications of compressibility and transonic flow phenomena,...

Buriani, Gioele (author)
This work introduces a novel methodology for the development of interpretable reduced-order dynamic models specifically tailored for jumping quadruped robots. Leveraging Symbolic Regression combined with autoencoder neural networks, the framework autonomously derives symbolic equations from data and fundamental physics principles capturing the...

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of hybrid materials with metal-based inorganic nodes connected by organic linkers via strong coordination bonds. These building blocks can be arranged in 3-D crystalline lattices to synthesize structures with varying pore sizes and a variety of structures (tuneability). These hybrid materials possess...

Strong intergenerational relationships can provide emotional support and stability for both grandparents and grandchildren. Technology tools have been proven to be beneficial in connecting grandchildren and grandparents. Prior work mainly examined how to use technology to connect children and their grandparents over a distance. Those collocated...

Drones are increasingly used nowadays, primarily for visual inspection tasks facilitated by onboard cameras. The field of aerial manipulation tries to expand the capabilities of drones by attaching a manipulator, enabling physical interaction. Unfortunately, the usability of aerial manipulators is hindered by disturbances resulting from the...

Micro- and nanoelectromechanical (MEM/NEM) resonators are used in numerous fields of engineering and are crucial for time keeping, synchronization, and sensing applications. These systems are subjected to energy dissipation, which is a limiting factor in the performance. Extensive understanding is essential when nonlinearities show up in both...

Offshore mussel cultivation is gaining popularity, with the longline technique emerging as a popular method for cultivation. The longline technique entails multiple backbones from which mussel lines that loop around it are suspended and which are kept afloat by buoys. Overdulve Offshore Services designed the Cees Leenaars, a semi-submersible...
