Background: The steep radiation dose gradients in cervical cancer brachytherapy (BT) necessitate a thorough understanding of the behavior of afterloader source cables or needles in the curved channels of (patient-tailored) applicators. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to develop and validate computer models to simulate: (1) BT source...

The energy transition requires us to explore all options for generating non-fossil energy. Companies are starting to invest in technologies such as offshore floating PV systems (OFPV) to avoid congested urban population centres. OFPV structures are likely to consist of many small, simple, flexibly connected floaters. The entire structure must be...

Crumb rubber (CR) has been proposed to apply in the ballast or sub-ballast layer for ballast degradation mitigation and vibration (noise) reduction. The CR can change the ballast layer stiffness, which can affect the train-track-subgrade dynamic performance and cause travel comfort and safety issues. Towards this, this study aims at...

Installation of jacket platforms requires simultaneous and combined operations of multiple assets. When the whole process has to be planned, it is necessary to predict in a fast and reliable way the possible weather limitations that may occur during the operations. The paper will present the major challenges of this unusual and innovative...

In high-precision complex mechatronic devices, specifications are mostly affected by the contribution of several disciplines. Thus, in order to facilitate the fulfilment of the specifications, it is crucial to have a well-defined requirement for each sub-system during the entire design process. Model based system engineering (MBSE) is a...

The space environment is ever-changing with space structures getting larger and the orbits getting increasingly crowded with time. This creates a need for removal of large defunct satellites to avoid the disastrous Kessler syndrome, which poses a major threat to the future of space exploration. This research examines the dynamics and control...

For decades crane standards are used to assess crane fatigue making use of a static method in combination with factors to take dynamic load effects into account. This is not sufficient to make more accurate predictions. The proposed method benefits from state of the art Multibody Dynamics simulation tool Msc ADAMS and Finite Element software...

This dissertation has investigated whether a combination of DEM and MBD can be used for a reliable and accurate environment for predicting grab unloading performance. A grab is a type of bulk material handling equipment used for unloading materials such as coal and iron ore from vessel to shore. Both a grab and iron ore pellets have been...

The decommissioning market expenditure is expected to grow further in the years to come due to increasing number of platforms that near the end of their production cycle, mainly being xed steel structures (<4,000 [Te]) positioned in shallow waters (30 to 75 [m]). The risks of such operation emerged the need for semi-submersible, heavy-lift...

As circuit testing days are expensive and limited by regulations, racing teams are more and more dependent on simulation tools. Van Amersfoort Racing built their own racing simulator to train drivers in an fully controlled environment. This environment is based on commercially available simulation software rFactor. However, no research on the...

Because of the focus on weight minimization, aircraft are becoming more and more flexible. Therefore, the frequency separation between flight mechanics motion and structural vibration decreases. This calls for a flight mechanics model that includes aeroelasticity. The development of such a model was the subject of the current research. This...

A novel take-off and landing system using ground based power is proposed in the EUFP7 project GABRIEL. The proposed system has the potential benefit to reduce aircraft weight, emissions and noise. A preliminary investigation of the feasibility of the structural design of the connection mechanism between aircraft and ground system has been...
