PID is the most popular controller in the industry. PID controllers are linear, and thus have fundamental limitations, such that certain performance criteria cannot be achieved. To overcome these limitations, nonlinear reset control can be used. Reset control can achieve less overshoot and a faster response time than linear controllers. However,...

Current urban systems have a linear metabolism; they rely on imported resources, which are used inefficiently, and they produce waste flows. Urban areas can become productive and not only consumptive if a well-planned distributed energy system is implemented. Switching to renewables, however, means rethinking today’s urban landscape entirely....

The worldwide trends of depleting natural resources and increasing generation of waste create challenges concerning the development and growth of our cities. Urban growth is enforcing these trends, resulting in growing problems and reaching limitations to the growth of our economies. In this thesis, these worldwide trends will be challenged in...

The problem that needs to be resolved is the fact that there is too little knowledge about the energetically optimal application of photovoltaic thermal collectors (PVT) in an energy system configuration as well as its integration in a building envelope. A solution for this problem could eventually entail an optimisation in the use and storage...

Environmental regulations are continuously raising the bar towards more advanced diesel engine designs ca- pable of minimizing the emissions of polluting substances. The recent IMO Tier III legislation, entered into force in 2016, is forcing the engine manufacturers to meet a NOx reduction of more than 70% from Tier II for all the ships sailing...

Population growth, meat-focused diets and emerging industries are increasing stress on water, energy and food (hereafter: WEF) supply around the globe. As stress on the resources rises, the interdependencies between the sectors become more apparent and often lead to unforeseen chain reactions. An example of which is: a drought leads to...

A manufacturing technology is proposed to manufacture polymeric membrane scaffolds for culturing of cells, tissues, and organoids with integrated sensor capabilities and fluidic functionalities. A multilayer substrate is imprinted with a soft mold to manufacture polymeric membrane scaffolds for culturing of cells, tissues, and organoids with...

An enhanced methodology is proposed to include both the loading and the resistance of the upper stem (pipeline) in 18" ILT installation. Loading behavior and buckling capacity have been investigated. The upper stem behaves quasi-statically for all HMC projects, this corresponds to the current method of applying maximum found loads statically....

For programs controlling industrial processes, it is of vital importance that they produce results conform their functional specification. Furthermore, it is important that their running times are bounded, and that we can predict corresponding worst-case scenarios. Programs written in general purpose programming languages can crash or produce...

In the wake of climate change and rising water levels the city of Dordrecht is looking for alternative ways to prepare for coming threats other than keep raising the current dikes. In an exploration a suggestion is made to use the southern side of the island as a buffer for excess water. This research takes that suggestion a step further and...

In order for the offshore wind industry to be competitive, the cost has to be driven down. One of the major factors that contribute to the overall cost is the over-dimensioning of the substructure. The response of the structure under various loading conditions can provide valuable insight in the design phase so as to provide a structural design...

Colombia’s economy has been growing steady in the past decades, partly because of the increase in tourism. However, this tourism also has a downside. Hotels and restaurants are constructed one after another, preferably along the coast. This, combined with factors such as climate change and land subsidence and the fact that people tend to prefer...

During S-lay pipeline installation, tension fluctuations in the suspended pipeline are compensated by the tensioner system on the vessel. The goal of this thesis is to answer the questions: to what extent does the active tension compensation (ATC) influence the pipeline integrity during offshore installation. Secondly, which tensioner model...

Dark silicon is pushing processor vendors to add more specialized units such as accelerators to commodity processor chips. Unfortunately this is done without enough care to security. In this paper we look at the security implications of integrated Graphical Processor Units (GPUs) found in almost all mobile processors. We demonstrate that GPUs,...

Motion compensation for personnel transfer has greatly reduced costs and increased accessibility for offshore assets operation and maintenance. Solutions exist using hexapods or gangways that make a stiff connection by clamping to a customized offshore structure. State of the art gangways allow for a stepless workflow and have a rubber tip which...

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...

India is a country constantly grappling with problems of impeded rural development. Energy, in particular sustainable energy can be seen as key to attain the Sustainable Development Goals set out by the U.N. Integration of rural sectors can be seen as a methodology to broaden the potential achievement of the targetted Sustainable Development...

FabField is a building system that borrows most of its basic principles from more evolved and flexible industries, making use of digital fabrication methods (CNC milling) to produce all components that constitute a building. However, not all aspects have been fully thought of in the system: the integration of building services for FabField is...

Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in cities. This makes them centres of resource consumption and waste production. Sustainable development is seen as an opportunity to respond to the consequences of urbanisation and climate change. In recent years the concepts of circularity and urban symbiosis have emerged as popular...

Water management is becoming increasingly important in the world. Population growth, climate change, and increasing demands placed on infrastructure call for a smart and standardized approach. The data needs to stay at the source and sharing information in a more efficient way is becoming increasingly important. To make this possible in the...
