Research to analyse and/or develop novel materials and techniques is necessary to address competition and safeguard craftmanship in shipbuilding. In this master thesis, two new approaches to reduce the production and maintenance costs are studied: {metal foam core, metal face sheet} sandwich materials and corner adstir fillet stationary shoulder...

A high drop-out rate is present during current-day air traffic controller (ATCo) training, because the required expertise level is not reached. The determination of the expertise level of ATCo students is currently performed using subjective assessments at a late stage in the training by means of high-fidelity simulator sessions. It is desired...

In solving two-phase flows, the location of the interface between the phases is necessary to handle interface jump conditions when solving the Navier-Stokes equation. Current interface capturing and advection methods, however, suffer from various issues. The level set method uses the signed distance to the interface and the interface being the...

'De Slufter' is a nature conservation area located in the Northwest of the Dutch Wadden island Texel which is inundated with seawater during storm events. The landward side of De Slufter is a sand dike which is part of the primary coastal defence ring of the island. HHNK, which is responsible for the coastal safety of Texel, currently relocates...

Mechatronic embedded control systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated and computationally demanding. These systems typically consists of multiple controllers, which coordinate the actuators and apply feedback based on data collected by sensors. Often the underlying control strategy is entirely described in a software application, which...

This thesis explores the use of InSAR data for building monitoring. The area of main interest is the city centre of Amsterdam, where quay wall replacements are necessary on a large scale. In Amsterdam, the foundation quality needs to be checked before construction activities nearby are performed, such as a quay wall replacement. Levelling...

The Active Inference framework is a neuroscience theory based on the Free Energy Principle by Karl Friston that has gained considerable prominence as a general theory to explain action and perception. Despite its promising future and use in different fields, its applicability for robot control has been barely investigated in the literature so...

In 2003, it was established that the sea dike between Petten and Camperduin was insufficiently safe.
To ensure the safety of the hinterland against flooding, this part of the Dutch sea defence system needed to be strengthened.
During the design process, the most favourable variant was to construct a dune and beach system in front of the...

The transport of highly-viscous oil in the core-annular flow regime in a horizontal pipe is investigated with a numerical simulation study. In this flow type the viscous oil is lubricated by a water annulus along the pipe wall. The Launder-Sharma low-Reynolds number k-ε turbulence model is used with the Volume-of-Fluid solver in interFOAM. Three...

Louisiana, USA, operates as an oilscape, sacrificing its landscape in pursuit of economic prosperity through the oil and gas industry. Combined with sea level rise, this has resulted in continuous land loss since the fifties, making the Louisiana coast one of the fastest declining in the world. As a consequence, many communities are living on...

The water tax in the Netherlands provides the funding for all the water management in the Dutch deltas. In the US there is no such tax, this means funding big civil projects may be problematic and not so easy. Therefore it is necessary to explore smaller scale solutions for the problem of sea level rise.
In the San Francisco bay area, there...

Shallow bays in the Caribbean, like Baie Orientale and Baie de L'Embouchure in Saint Martin, are often sheltered by coral reefs and covered by seagrass meadows. They provide valuable services as tourism and coastal protection. The ecosystems are linked through biological, chemical and physical processes. But they are under pressure due to sea...

In applying the level-set method in the context of a finite-element method, errors can be minimized by adjusting the mesh to the shape of the level-set curve. The size of the different types of errors that occur depend on the goodness of fit to the zero levelset curve, the skewness of the triangles and the size of the triangles of the mesh. To...

Sandy beaches comprise large parts of the world's shorelines and act as a natural buffer for many exposed people and assets that are concentrated in the coastal zone. Many coastal communities are vulnerable to the impact of sea-level rise (SLR) that can amplify the episodic erosion from storms and drive structural erosion. The way communities...

Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies are changing the conventional structural design process. BIM level-1 and level-2 are providing guidelines and frameworks for standardization with the standard Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and collaborative design respectively. However, the predicted full potential of BIM, BIM level-3, which...

Conventional high voltage test sources, i.e., transformers (cascaded and resonant), impulse generators, and rectifier circuits generate 50 Hz/60 Hz sinusoidal, lightning and switching impulses, and DC respectively. For arbitrary wave shapes, function generator and HV amplifier setup are available up to 50 kV and few kHz signal bandwidths....

3D city models are now common planning and analysis tools. Urban vegetation as a feature in these models, however, is neglected overshadowed by the focus on buildings, so its inclusion in 3D city models is often symbolic. On the other hand, urban vegetation improves the comfort and social well being of a city’s inhabitants and is a resource for...

Driving with Haptic Shared Control (HSC) provides an alternative for traditional traded control in human-controller interaction. Whilst driving, control is shared between the driver and the controller by translating the controller's desired steering input to additional torques on the steering wheel.
Literature provides several guidelines for...

In the year 2050, global anthropogenic radiative forcing from aircraft emissions are projected to increase significantly. Recent studies have considered climate optimized flight trajectories to be a promising measure to mitigate non-CO2 emissions’ environmental impact, which is highly sensitive to locus and time of emissions. Estimating the...

Sea Level Rise is anticipated to significantly affect human development in the coastal zone by the end of the Twenty-First Century. The rising waters bring greater risk of floods, submergence of low lying land, salinization of freshwater supplies, and the erosion of sandy beaches. Quantifying these impacts spurns action by those hoping to adapt...
