Pauwels, Floris (author)
The aim of this thesis is to enhance motion comfort for passengers in automated vehicles (AVs) by training their postural control using virtual reality (VR). A serious game called Motion Anticipation Training Environment for Automated Vehicles (MATE-AV) is developed in Unity to train participants to adjust their posture in response to motion...

Haptic bilateral teleoperation is a concept where operators can feel, interact with and manipulate objects in a remote environment. The latency, often introduced by a network over a long distance, on force feedback poses a problem when trying to interact with objects. Model mediated teleoperation tries to mitigate this latency, but introduces...

From the perspective of wheelchair sports practice, there is a growing need to provide feedback on power output. Power can be used to monitor athletes' fitness and fatigue levels, thereby preventing overtraining and potential injuries, to individualize and analyze training programs, and it is also an objective measure of effort or intensity....

Dynamic balancing can offer significant benefits to applications where moving parts are present. It aims to reduce the reaction forces and moments due to inertia of the parts, thereby reducing vibrations. Dynamic balancing receives significant academic interest for planar and spatial applications, but limited attention for spherical mechanisms....

Steerable medical instruments are used to reach difficult locations in the body during minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Researching these instruments helps to further improve their performance and reduce their size making them even less invasive. However, developing new technology can be expensive and often complete custom test rigs are build...

The current need to ensure an effective and prompt transition of the energy sector towards zero-carbon has renewed the interest for nuclear technology. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) seem particularly interesting for their reduced capital cost, operational flexibility and enhanced safety and security. Different SMR concepts are being developed...

Neutrally stable metamaterials can maintain differ- ent shapes without any energy input, making it a key innovation in the quest for more energy-efficient technologies. Despite this intriguing property, the research in this area is scarce. This study proposes a method for achieving neutral stability in metama- terials. This method is validated...

Amid the Anthropocene, the escalating threat of flooding, driven by extreme rainfall and sea-level rise, challenges societies worldwide. In the last two decades, floods have impacted billions and inflicted colossal economic losses. Concurrently, the global trend towards urbanization predicts that by 2050, about 70\% of the global population will...

At speeds roughly between five and ten thousand km/h, hypersonic aircraft offer the promise of an extremely fast means of transport. Growing concerns about climate warming, however, direct attention to sustainability. This thesis focuses on atmospheric composition and radiation changes by considering a range of individual hypersonic aircraft...

Cycling as a mode of transport is getting increasingly more attention from academics and governments around the world. It improves the physical and mental well being of citizens, it is efficient in terms of space and it provides economic benefits. However, traffic engineers and urban planners of these cities currently lack the means to...

This thesis presents the state-of-the art gripping literature and the implementation and extension of an existing Pseudo-Rigid Body Modelling (PRBM) method for modelling initially-curved compliant grippers out of which a circular object is extracted. From the existing literature, challenges are found in the design and evaluation of concepts of...

Nanomechanical resonators made of two-dimensional (2D) materials are the subject of intensive research due to their remarkable properties, allowing them to operate at high frequencies with high sensitivity. However, dissipation losses and manufacturing issues have prevented them from reaching their full potential. This thesis aims to overcome...

The production reality of sheet steels from casting to the end product is such that in the cases of ultra- and advanced high-strength steels, we have to deal with the segregation of elements on macro- and microlevels. Both can have a significant impact on the microstructure formation and resulting properties. There are several production stages...

This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of Ultrasonic-assisted drilling (UAD) of Glass laminate aluminium reinforced epoxy (GLARE) at high cutting speeds (Spindle speeds: 3000–7500 rpm; feed rates 300–750 mm/min) by analysing the thrust force and hole quality metrics (surface roughness, hole size, and burr formations. The research also...

In wheelchair sports, there is an increasing need to monitor mechanical power in the field. When rolling resistance is known, inertial measurement units (IMUs) can be used to determine mechanical power. However, upper body (i.e., trunk) motion affects the mass distribution between the small front and large rear wheels, thus affecting rolling...

The series of metal–organic frameworks M-MOF-74 gained popularity in the field of capture and separation of CO<sub>2</sub> due to the presence of numerous, highly reactive open-metal sites. The description of effective interactions between guest molecules and open-metal sites without accounting for polarization effects is challenging but it...

Methods have been developed to predict how hydrodynamic loads acting on nearly saturated porous media are transmitted to the subsoil. In line with the effective stress principle of Terzaghi, these methods apply the boundary conditions that the effective stresses at the surface of a porous medium are zero, and that the pore water pressures...

An innovative reconfigurable beamforming network concept for multiple high-gain agile and mutually zero-forced beam generation is proposed. Four-port couplers and variable phase shifters are used to synthesize the network. A 2 beam by 7 element beam former is designed and fabricated as proof of concept. A static scenario with the two beams...

Wolf Rock Lighthouse is a Victorian era masonry structure located in an extreme environment facing the fiercest Atlantic storms off the southwest coast of England whose dynamic behaviour has been studied since 2016. Initially, a modal test was used to determine modal parameters; then, in 2017, a monitoring system was installed that has...
