The current approach in the shipping industry by the use of highly toxic coating systems is harmful for our inland waterways and oceans, does not benefit the public health and is very undesirable for all aquatic organisms on our planet.
Almost every vessel today uses a toxic coating system which releases toxic compounds continually into our...

During design projects, designers create and gain a lot of important knowledge that explains how and why certain steps are taken in the process of designing something new. Methods, best practices, pitfalls, and other important insights that might be useful for future projects are often lost in transition due to a lack of structural knowledge...

Progress has been made recently in the research of equal hierarchy backscatter communications. There are, however, challenges to overcome before this technology can become mainstream. For example, state-of-the-art solutions to the phase cancellation problem that occurs in such networks are still trivial and sub-optimal, especially in terms of...

Morphing winglets are devices that can improve aircraft aerodynamic efficiency and also be used as load alleviation devices. However, this implementation comes with a weight penalty due to the morphing mechanisms. In the present study two morphing winglet cases are tested, where due to mechanisms compatibilities, only a variable Cant-Span...

The subject of this thesis is the forming of sandwich panels on a reconfigurable mould. The field of research is composite sheet forming. This novel manufacturing process at Curve Works has problems with panel quality, especially out-of-plane wrinkles. Exploratory research on quality improvement is performed by analysing the underlying...

In this thesis, it is studied if the stability of a stone in a granular bed protection, can be predicted by the local output of a three-dimensional (3D) eddy resolving simulation technique.

In earlier studies regarding stone stability, Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) models are used to determine the loads on the bed. In the...

This research is aimed at breaking online political filter bubbles. We present a system that uses artificial intelligence and human computation to automatically collect article metadata on political content and thereby enables diverse personalization on content-serving platforms. This way, exploring alternative viewpoints could become as simple...

The electricity demand is increasing with the development of industry. Nowadays, sustainable resources used for electricity generation are playing a more and more important role in the power system due to serious energy problems. Higher capability of power transmission and distribution thus becomes significantly necessary to keep the stability...

Reefers are refrigerated containers commonly used for transporting perishable goods such as meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit. Due to the growth in reefer usage, energy consumption of reefers at container terminals grows significantly to 40% of the total energy consumption at terminals. When reefers are connected to the electricity grid, peaks...

Currently the performance of a traditional forward supply chain is broadly studied in literature. The less known reverse supply chain is an upcoming research theme, with more companies adapting this concept. In the beverages industry this reverse logistics are common and based on returnable packaging, so called empties. Beer brewers are under a...

Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations were performed to explore the electrochemical properties of two organic molecules that show promise to serve as affordable and safe anode materials in aqueous sodium-ion batteries. Upon sodium insertion, N,N’ –bis(methyl)- 1,4,5,8-naphthalene diimide (NDMe) appears to share sodium atoms with three...

Cities are growing and more land is reclaimed. Reclamation is the process of creating new land from ocean, riverbeds or lake beds. New land is created by hydraulic placement of sand. The hydraulically placed fills are characterized by low densities and show a high variety in packing throughout the field. The relative density of the fills depend...

A complex marine project consist of series of operations, with each operation subject to a predefined operational limit and duration, depending on the equipment being used. If actual weather conditions exceed the operational limit, then the operation cannot be executed and hence downtime occurs. It is up to contractors, such as Boskalis, to...

People living or working close to the highways are at risk to higher exposure levels of different air pollutants, one of which is particulate matter. The Antea group has recently proposed the addition of Electrostatic Precipitators (or ESPs) on the top of sound barriers adjacent to highways, in order to capture the particulate matter and safely...
