Rev is the final design product service system that can help athletes rehabilitate from traumatic ankle injuries. It does so by calibrating strength and stability of the unaffected leg and comparing it with exercises of the affected leg.Therefore communicating strength percentages back to the athlete. This enables the ultimate goal of increasing...

This thesis report presents an investigation of a soil improvement technique that is being executed for a Van Oord project in Kuwait. The soil is improved by the use of a column supported embankment, consisting of sand columns installed in a soft soil layer and a sand platform. The efficiency of this method is defined in terms of stress transfer...

Fabrication variations can have a detrimental effect on the performance of optical filters based on ring resonators. However, by using robust optimization these effects can be minimized and device yield can be significantly improved. This paper presents an efficient robust optimization technique for designing manufacturable optical filters based...

In the semiconductor industry, positioning accuracy and acceleration are critical parameters. To improve the acceleration speed of a motor, this paper proposes the moving-coil maglev planar motor with a concentric winding structure. The coordinate system has been built for the multiple degrees of freedom movement system. The Lorenz force...

The existing housing stock plays a major role in meeting the energy efficiency targets set in EU member states such as the Netherlands. The non-profit housing sector in this country dominates the housing market as it represents 31% of the total housing stock. The focus of this paper is to examine the energy efficiency measures that are currently...

This paper presents novel separate methods for finding optimal locations, sizes of multiple distributed generators (DGs) simultaneously and operational power factor in order to minimize power loss and improve the voltage profile in the distribution system. A load concentration factor (LCF) is introduced to select the optimal location(s) for DG...

One of the daily operations that a civil airplane goes through is the turnaround of ground handling process or what commonly known as the turnaround process. By improving the performance of the turnaround process, there would be multiple benefits for the airlines and the airports, costs can be saved and more profit can be created due to higher...

Consolidation of soft clay creates a lot of problems in foundation engineering, because of the very low clay permeability and high compressibility. Primary consolidation takes a long time to complete if the material is left consolidating under atmospheric evaporation, and traditional dewatering techniques, such as surcharge preloading, vacuum...

A large part of the flood defences in The Netherlands does not meet the present safety standards. In 2014 the delta programme has proposed new safety standards, which are based on the flood risk approach. These new safety standards will for a lot of river dikes be stricter than the currently prevailing safety standards. A lot of work has to be...

In today’s information driven-economy, the key for manufacturing organizations like HEINEKEN Brewery Zoeterwoude to become and remain competitive lies in their capacity to acquire sound, relevant and timely information, as well as in ability to learn from the acquired information. The latter is believed to be linked to the extent in which the...

A novel technique for efficient global robust optimization of problems affected by parametric uncertainties is proposed. The method is especially relevant to problems that are based on expensive computer simulations. The globally robust optimal design is obtained by searching for the best worst-case cost, which involves a nested min-max...

Diverse effective strategies have been designed to minimize the phenomenon of urban sprawl. Previous research focused on the link between spatial and transport development strategies to achieve this goal, with the intention of increasing mobility, reducing commuting time and travel costs. However, a side effect of urban sprawl is an increase of...
