In recent years, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become prevalent in a large number of societally relevant, real-world problems, e.g., in the domains of engineering and health care. The field of Evolutionary Computation (EC) can be considered to be a sub-field of AI, concerning optimization using Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs), which...

High-strength steel (HSS) has higher strength but lower ductility than mild steel. The cross-section of the structural members may be reduced using HSS instead of mild steel, provided the buckling of elements does not govern the failure. The reduced member size benefits the environment and economy by means of less energy consumption, less carbon...

Whereas aberrating layers are typically viewed as an impediment to medical ultrasound imaging, they can, surprisingly, also be used to our benefit. As long as we can model the effect of an aberrating layer, we can utilize ‘model-based imaging’, the imaging technique explored throughout this thesis, to reconstruct ultrasound images where...

Street view imagery (SVI) is one of the largest (growing) resources in urban analytics. A global close-up of the urban environment, if you will, which is rich in (untapped) information such as floor count. Floor count is useful in many applications, from improving energy consumption calculations to creation of 3D city models without elevation...

Focal laser ablation is a new, promising method to treat tumors. The current focal laser ablation approach is to insert an optical fiber into the patient using rigid needles. A side effect of this approach is that during the needle insertion, tissue damage occurs. The larger the diameter of the needle, the more tissue damage. If the diameter of...

Architectural graduation project containing a research and design for the Notre Dame of Paris. The research focusses on reinterpreting the Notre Dame of Paris based on seven interviews. The interviews are bundled in a set of narrative drawings that approach the building and its environment as intangible domain containing rather the social...

Detection of lymph node involvement has a significant negative impact on the treatment outcome for patients with head and neck squamous-cell carcinomas (SCC). Metastatic lymph nodes can be detected with high sensitivity by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET). However, 18F-FDG uptake is not only increased in...

This thesis presents the research to design a successful high-accuracy, sub-millimetric registration method for an autonomous robot equipped to drill bone for cochlear implant (CI) surgery. Its performance, and thus success, is measured in accuracy, workload, usability and trust. While state-of-the-art (STOTA) research lacks the inclusion of...

The mechanical performance of engineered cementitious composite (ECC) depends greatly on fiber orientation and distribution. In this paper, the effect of fiber orientation on ECC's mechanical properties was investigated using two different casting methods: a flow-induced casting was used to enhance the fiber orientation within ECC mixture and...

Decreased thickness of the bone cortex due to bone loss in the course of ageing and osteoporosis is associated with reduced bone strength. Cortical thickness measurement from ultrasound images was recently demonstrated in young adults. This requires the identification of both the outer (periosteum) and inner (endosteum) surfaces of the bone...

This study reports the effect of N<sub>2</sub> and CO<sub>2</sub> bubbles on dilute to dense gas-liquid two-phase bubbly flow. A shadowgraph imaging technique captured bubble images at a high spatiotemporal resolution. The recordings of bubble images allow us to compute gas fraction distribution. It requires challenging segmentation and gas...

The aerodynamic characteristics of a modern road cycling wheel in cross wind are studied through force- and planar PIV measurements in the TU Delft Open Jet Facility. The performance of the 62 mm deep rim is evaluated for three tire profiles, and yaw angles up to 24°. All measurements are executed at 12.5 m/s (45 km/h) freestream- and wheel...

Purpose: We studied the differences between planning and treatment position, their impact on the accuracy of hyperthermia treatment planning (HTP) predictions, and the relevance of including true treatment anatomy and position in HTP based on magnetic resonance (MR) images. Materials and methods: All volunteers were scanned with an MR...

The manual application of universal (Rigsby) stage techniques is commonly used to determine the fabric of thin sections of ice viewed with crossed-polarized light. This process can require hours of focus in cold conditions to identify the c-axis of each grain in a thin section. Automated ice texture and fabric methods of several forms exist...

Continuing from the part 1 (Shi et al., 2022) this paper presents an experimental investigation of transient void fraction and bubble statistics in a highly turbulent breaking bore with Fr<sub>1</sub>=2.4. The measurements were conducted using a combination of dual-tip phase-detection probes and an ultra-high-speed video camera. The enclosed...

Introduction: Anastomotic leakage after gastrointestinal surgery has a high impact on patient's quality of life and its origin is associated with inadequate perfusion. Imaging photoplethysmography (iPPG) is a noninvasive imaging technique that measures blood-volume changes in the microvascular tissue bed and detects changes in tissue...

In this study non-invasive low field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology was used to monitor fouling induced changes in fiber-by-fiber hydrodynamics inside a multi-fiber hollow fiber membrane module containing 401 fibers. Using structural and velocity images the fouling evolution of these membrane modules were shown to exhibit...

There is an increased desire for miniature ultrasound probes with small apertures to provide volumetric images at high frame rates for in-body applications. Satisfying these increased requirements makes simultaneous achievement of a good lateral resolution a challenge. As micro-beamforming is often employed to reduce data rate and cable count...

Ultrasound contrast-mediated medical imaging and therapy both rely on the dynamics of micron- and nanometer-sized ultrasound cavitation nuclei, such as phospholipid-coated microbubbles and phase-change droplets. Ultrasound cavitation nuclei respond non-linearly to ultrasound on a nanosecond time scale that necessitates the use of ultra-high...
