Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between the surface and deep layers to generate electricity. The temperatures in the ocean hardly vary between day and night or between the seasons, which ensures a very constant energy production with OTEC. In order for OTEC to compete with the current forms of energy...

On 15th of October 2018 the kick-off of the project took place. The assignment was to design a science based methodology for the creation of SRFACE wetsuits. The current design process is still almost entirely based on trial and error. A product designer draws seam lines on a 2D body outline, based on his knowledge about fit, insulation and...

The research of this thesis focuses on the stiffness and the durability of a composite panel that consists of thin glass as outer layers and a 3D printed core element from recycled PET. Thin Alumino-silicate glass, mostly used in computers, tablets and smartphones, is known for its lightweight, flexibility, durability, high bending strength and...

Patients with 1p/19q co-deleted low grade glioma (LGGs) have better prognosis and react better to certain treatments than patients with intact 1p/19q LGG. Currently, information about the 1p/19q co-deletion status is obtained by means of an invasive procedure called biopsy. As an alternative, non-invasive techniques to extract this information...

With tackling the problems of resource depletion and waste, the currently booming topic of a circular economy (CE) comes up. This concept goes beyond the processes of reusing and recycling products and looks at the entire material and energy loops of products. The current economy, or linear economy, is still the status quo where products are...

The aim of this thesis is to present the outputs of a project in which pattern kerfing techniques are explored for producing responsive freeform panels out of wooden plates. Relevant research such as the ones presented by Ivanišević (2014), Zarrinmehr et al. (2017) and Ohshima et al. (2013) have shown that it is possible to bend a wooden plate...

With urbanisation, city life is becoming more efficient and artificial. The pace of living is getting faster and the cosiness of slowing down are disappearing. Social warmth among people are decreasing in anonymous cities and spiritual restoration are being pushed away as nature is being pushed out of the expanding cities. This project tries to...

With the increase of online education, a good description of learning resources has become vital for educational resource sharing and reuse. Resource description has been under the spotlight in recent years. Educational platforms can benefit from good resource organisation and description, thereby providing a higher quality of services and...

Taking into consideration that ancient Greece is highly correlated to the democratic public space, the aim of the present thesis is to regain public space in modern Greece, by having as a testing location a medium-sized city, Chania. Public space was an important part of Greek people’s lives in the different chronological periods of its history....

Fast sequencing and analysis of (microorganism, plant or human) genomes will open up new vistas in fields like personalised medication, food yield and epigenetic research. Current state-of-the-art DNA pattern matching techniques use heuristic algorithms on computing clusters of CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs. With genomic data set to eclipse social and...

Faults can both improve producibility and fluid flow in hydrocarbon reservoirs, and cause leakage and instabilities in sealing layers. For this reason it is of importance to create a multiscale understanding of the drivers behind deformation, and how deformation is accommodated. Carbonates have always been of interest to the oil and gas industry...

Clear ice formation on aircraft is a large economic and safety problem. The phenomenon, also known as ‘freezing rain’, usually occurs when subcooled rain droplets impact the aircraft while it descends from high altitude to prepare for landing. It can quickly increase the aerodynamic drag by up to 80% and reduce the lift force by 50%. Inefficient...

Photographers suffer from many challenging problems when separating and compositing images, such as the color camouflage and unpleasant color bleeding artifacts. To tackle these issues, we present a solution to fore- and background segmentation for images taken from multiple cameras, which introduce the parallax that leads to the foreground...

The seismic building structural type (SBST) reflects the main load-bearing structure of a building and therefore its behaviour under seismic load. For numerous areas in earthquake prone regions this information is outdated, unavailable, or simply not existent. Traditional methods to gather this information, such as building-by-building...

Gasunie Transport Services (GTS) is the operator of the natural gas transmission network in the Netherlands. This network is an entry-exit system where entry and exit capacities can be booked by parties called shippers. Variations in usage lead to an enormous number of possible entry-exit combinations. GTS must be able to accommodate all...

An efficient production is essential for an economic continuation of most gold mining companies, due to a moderate gold price and a competitive market. Recently, the Ahafo South Mining operations owned by the Newmont Mining Corporation and located on a Proterozoic gold belt in the south west of Ghana, indicated that the cost of production must...

This thesis is a study on the cracking behaviour of road bases constructed with cement bound reclaimed asphalt (also known in the Netherlands as AGRAC). It is decided to focus on this material because of the few researches available on the topic although the material being widely applied, at least in the Netherlands. The
goal of adding...

Uncertainties regarding structural safety of reinforced concrete structures may warrant a need for a detailed assessment. A detailed assessment using nonlinear finite element analysis is one of the alternatives which could help in decision-making about maintaining, upgrading or even demolishing and rebuilding of the structure. A reliable...

Large-scale changes in ocean conditions caused by installing and operating Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) have not been studied in depth. Conversely, the effect on an OTEC plant by oceanographic features are not researched in depth either. The aim of this research is to describe the natural patterns and variability of the ocean currents...

In my thesis, I have done research into the optimization of stopping patterns and frequencies of public transport services within a network. I have developed a model that takes both passenger and operator costs into account. The model has been run for a small fictional network and for the metro and train network of Amsterdam, to explore how the...
