In this thesis, the basis for a general implementation of the Thick Level Set method is presented. This basis combines the general applicability of the TLS_V1 method by Moës et al. with the improved fracture mechanics of the TLS_V2 method by Lé et al. In order to accomplish this, the topological skeleton needs to be found for an arbitrary...

In line with the growing trend of using machine learning to improve solving of combinatorial optimisation problems, one promising idea is to improve node selection within a mixed integer programming branch-and-bound tree by using a learned policy. In contrast to previous work using imitation learning, our policy is focused on learning which of a...

Many countries in the world face the problem of fruit frost during spring, which results in the loss of harvested crops. Solutions exist to prevent the fruit to freeze, however this requires that the temperature is known. Therefore, a smart autonomous temperature sensor network is designed that is capable of acquiring a 3D temperature profile of...

The objective of the bachelor graduation project detailed in this thesis is to develop a wireless sensor patch that monitors the health of newborns. The sensor patch replaces the monitoring tasks of nurses during maternity care. The patch measures temperature, heart rate, oxygen saturation and bilirubin. Many babies are born with high bilirubin,...

Computers are preferred above humans when dealing with information processing because of the great memory and fast computing times. The use of algorithms within complex planning processes is an interesting research field. These algorithms should help human planners with the planning process and therefore are called Planning Assistance Tools (PAT...

The company Kien 1 is developing Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) speakers, consisting of a subwoofer and several satellite speakers. These subwoofer and satellite speakers will have a feature named Follow Me, which when enabled from a smartphone application, will play music only in the room where the user currently is. The BLE’s signals will...

The performance of an Indoor Positioning System is highly related to the placement of the transmitting nodes that are used as references for the positioning estimations. Within this graduation project, we propose a methodology that can be used to optimize such a deployment and thus, increase the performance of an Indoor Positioning System that a...

Given the increasing popularity of Machine Learning, and the ever increasing need to solve larger and more complex learning challenges, it is unsurprising that numerous distributed learning strategies have been brought forward in recent years, along with many large scale Machine Learning frameworks. It is however unclear how well these...

Composite lattice structures (CLS) offer high performance and demonstrate significant mass savings in space structure applications. Local modifications of regular lattice designs have the potential to further improve the lattice performance. This research explored the micro-structural quality features of CLSs manufactured with pre-preg fibre...

Additive manufacturing allows material structuring, supporting the fabrication of multiple-level structures or metamaterials. Through the lens of classical stress reduction, nature’s cellular solid structures feature stress-homogenizing nodal topologies. Avian long bones are an example. Research into the mechanics of open cell cellular solids...

As the airports keep on growing, the need to offer sufficient landside public transport access becomes more important. When the public transport stations at airports have a hub function within the network, challenges arise that need to be identified. Within this thesis report, a method is proposed to analyze the challenges.

Laminated bamboo could be a promising material when it comes to large span roofing structures where often truss structures are adopted. It is assumed that connection design used for timber trusses can also be applied in laminated bamboo trusses. For this research truss nodes with slotted-in steel plates are considered. This research will focus...

This thesis studies the impact of reinforcement detailing on the behaviour of a reinforced concrete structure. Using a retaining wall as a case-study, the performance of two commonly used alternative reinforcement layouts (of which one is wrong) are studied and compared. Reinforcement Layout 1 had the main reinforcement (from the wall) bent...

Recent advancements in computational methods has led to improvements in the computational modeling of tensile failure of composite laminates. Models for compressive failure however, have not yet reached the same level of maturity. Particularly in the case of fiber kinking there is a need for improved modeling techniques. Fiber kinking occurs...

Ever since the idea of truss structures was conceived and later were expanded into three dimensional structures forming space frames, jointing has been a challenge. The evolution of jointing systems includes three main methods: connection with a node, connection with a prefabricated unit and connection without a node (e.g. welding). Delving more...

In order to obtain a modal shift from car towards public transport, the quality of a public transport journey has to be increased. The transfer is the least valued part of the journey where a traveller perceives one minute of waiting as three minutes. By improving the least valued part, the overall quality of a public transport journey increases...
