The increased usage of Electric Vehicles and Renewable Energy Sources causes issues regarding the balancing of the electricity grid. To avoid investment costs, Distribution System Operators desire flexibility solutions. One of these flexibility solutions is the usage of the battery of the Electric Vehicle as an electricity source. This concept...

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...

The graduation project is about personalizing the multimedia guide (abbreviated as MMT) of the Van Gogh Museum. The personalization goal is to facilitate future visitors to engage with the collection and maximize the meaning of visiting the museum based on visitors’ diverse concerns. A model is brought up during the project and can describe four...

Flying comes with many responsibilities for both the airport and the passenger. One of the responsibilities for the passenger is to be on time at the airport. In case of delays or disruptions, passengers are required to be provided with alternatives to be able to catch their flight on time. The airport is responsible for offering the best...

Despite widespread research into the possibilities of improving aerodynamic efficiency, a plateau seems to have been reached for the conventional configuration. Hence, the potential of unconventional configurations are being investigated in recent years. Flying V is one such configuration that promises a lift to drag ratio about 24 in cruise...

From the beginning of the 21st century, thin glass has been used as a screen protector for electronic devices and smartphones. During the last 10 years, several studies have been carried out to introduce the thin glass in the building industry. The advantages of this material are light weight, high strength and high flexibility. On the other...

Visitors who return from a festival experience an empty feeling combined with fatigue. In this thesis, this experience is called the void. An established psychological phenomenon called the Peak-End rule describes how events are judged by both their peaks, be they positive or negative, and their ends. The end of festivals is now often perceived...

This research project aims to find a way for the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague to communicate about their museum building to its visitors. The museum building is to become an explicit part of the visitor experience. By means of design-based research a list of design requirements was composed and a web-based mobile application was designed as...

The stay cables of the north bridge of the Galecopperbrug are reaching the end of their life span. Rijkswaterstaat, which is responsible for the bridges, needs a reliable Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) method to monitor the current state of the stay cables. At the moment, Rijkswaterstaat experiences issues with defining the state and the...

In the early 00 of this century, Keuning et al. (2007) looked into the hydrodynamic forces on the rudder and the influence of the hull and keel on these forces. Among others, they have assessed the lift and drag forces on the rudder. One of the outcomes of this study was an asymmetric lift curve; for negative rudder angles the rudder seems to...

Due to the growing amount of air traveller in the coming decades, there is an increasing interest to improve the experience of the passengers. Especially travelling with hold-luggage is a big pain point and stress factor for passengers’. A new way of looking at this problem is providing a baggage pick-up and delivery service by independent...

Enabling mobile robots to autonomously navigate complex environments is essential for real-world deployment in commercial, industrial, military, health care, and domestic settings. Prior methods approach this problem by having the robot maintain an internal map of the world and then use a localization and planning method to navigate through the...

Coastal regions are more and more affected by changes in water levels, storm patterns etc. owing to climate change. Nourishments and other human interventions constitute common practice in order to maintain and secure these areas. However, many aspects, especially the hydrodynamics, are not yet fully understood due to the complexity of the...

In the last two decades, the global economy and population have been growing steadily. Due to these global trends the demand for dredging, trenching and deep sea mining activities have grown dramatically. In these engineering practices, underwater excavation is one of the major procedures which involves complicated physics. In dredging,...

This report provides an analysis of the consumer experience at the end-of-use phase of a product. The study in this report focussed on the consumer-product relationship: how this plays a role in the process of product detachment, and what this means for products at the end-of-use, with a specific attention for products in a circular economy.

Dykstra Naval Architects are regularly designing large classic sailing yachts or motor-sailors, of which the draft is an important design restriction.The sailing performance is increased by adding lift-generating appendages,without increasing the draft. An example is a retractable centre board, havinga big influence on the sailing properties....

This research combines two relatively new additions to the field of discrete choice modelling: sequential best worst discrete choice experiments (SBWDCE) and random regret minimisation (RRM) modelling, with the hope of developing a more behaviourally realistic choice model. SBWDCEs are able to gather a larger number of stated choice observations...

Pile driving can cause plastic deformation to the head of the driven pile, which in turn can lead to connectivity issues when the superstructure is installed. Moreover, plastic deformation reduces the estimated service life of the structure. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor the strain levels during the installation in order to detect if the...

The boundary layer transition location is a crucial design parameter in aerodynamics. The computational prediction of boundary layer transition in engineering applications is typically based on empirical models. These models require experimental measurements for calibration and validation purposes. For unsteady aerodynamic processes, the range...
