The Netherlands currently lacks a large scale aggregation system which can unlock decentralised flexibility to improve the reliability of the electricity grid in the presence of a significant amount of variable renewable energy sources. In this reserach, the aggregator blockchain technology is perceived as an enabler for a decentralised...

The growth of electricity generated by renewables increases the intermittency of the Dutch electricity production. To deal with this, the Dutch power system requires a higher amount of flexibility in the future. Demand response with heat pumps is one of the options with a high potential to provide flexibility, because it offers the potential to...

Despite the fact that pop-up and temporary architecture is slowly evolving, there is much room
for improvement. While the focus is in the function it serves, it very commonly lacks in the aesthetic
aspect and the quality of the space, being perceived by many as cheap, fast and disposable. Similarly, in the technical aspect, it lacks the...

In this research the role of thick flexible soles in energy-efficient humanoid walking is analyzed. It is
hypothesized that, the addition of underactuated degrees of freedom under the foot gives the robot
the potential to execute a pseudo-passive walking motion 1, which yields a decrease in ankle torque
and energy expenditure....

Background
Current procedures for repairing damage to the articular cartilage in the ankle are not satisfying patient needs and have a minimum rehabilitation time of 4 months. The Chondro project aims to develop an all-in-one polyclinical procedure where diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation can be performed in one session reducing the...

This thesis aims at analyzing the energy flexibility (EF) potential of building structural thermal energy storage (STES) by the implementation of active demand response (ADR) and providing a representative recommendation for building renovation and operation. The objective building type is existing Dutch single-family houses built between 1965...

Flex-to-rigid (F2R) is a technology platform for the fabrication of miniature partially flexible sensor systems for minimally invasive medical instruments. Because of the flexibility, these sensor systems can be wrapped around cylindrical medical instruments such as catheters or guidewires. F2R is a postprocessing technology whereby flexible...

Beach nourishments or sand replenishments are applied by the use of pipelines or the rainbow method. Replenished sand is then moved and levelled by bulldozers. This is a passive approach to process the outflow of material. The land based equipment is dependent from tides and water levels, and significant effort is required to install and...

The building I designed for my graduation project focused on finding ways in which to break the rules governing functions of the historic building, as said by Paul Virilio, to “inhabit the inhabitual”, by reusing and giving new functions to buildings that have been abandoned. The building will host three main functions related to a water...

There is a transition in the development of cities. The car-based urbanization is shifting into a pedestrian and bike based urbanization. This is the effect of the transition in society because the fossil-fuel based society is changing into a renewable energy-based society. Cities want to densify instead of expand to deal with energy and...

Energy flexibility is the ability to change power production or consumption over time. It is required for a power system to function properly, to balance supply and demand. Currently, the largest providers of energy flexibility in the Netherlands can be found on the supply side and consist mainly out of fossil fueled power plants. As these are...

Driven by my fascination for utopian open structures that give answer to the unexpected, I have been exploring the meaning of flexibility for the city of today.
The project is called Arrival City: a radical transformation of the modern ruin at the Hofplein-area in Rotterdam into a transitplace for all kinds of newcomers.

The project concerns the refurbishment of post-war housing, specifically the Camera Obscura in Utrecht. The proposed plan is based upon: 1) technical parameters for energy neutrality, 2) the problems specified by the building analysis and 3) four types of flexibility, to enable inhabitants to influence their dwellings.

In the last years, Floating Car Data (FCD) has risen as a technology that has the potential to replace legacy sensors, reduce associated installation and maintenance costs and offer new possibilities in the field of traffic management. FCD refers to the use of sources such as in-vehicle systems with network connectivity or road users’ mobile...

Within several testing grounds in The Netherlands, Decentralized System Operators (DSOs) test a variety of smart grid solutions in order to anticipate on expected peak load increase; Most future energy system scenarios point out issues related to the functioning of the grid. Examples are blackout risks and large voltage fluctuations, which occur...

A minimization of disturbance caused by aircraft noise events and a reduction of fuel consumption during the initial and final phase of flight. These are the two objectives that play an important role in the Flexible Runway Allocation Model. By taking into account fuel consumption alongside noise annoyance, this model enables to analyze and...

Aeroelastic analyses traditionally consider the airfoil of a wing to remain rigid, only allowing deformation in the span-wise direction of the wing. Recent investigations have shown the benefits of adding chord-wise flexibility in the trailing edge of a wing, however so far only two-dimensional studies have been carried out. Therefore, the...

Sealing constructions are frequently used in reusable instruments to prevent the loss of fluids or gasses in a construction by obstructing flow through the glands in the interface of two or more separate parts, and may be applied to seal patients' body fluids. Patient material contains various types of microorganisms, and with the increase of...
