Training improves balance control in older adults, but the time course and neural mechanisms underlying these improvements are unclear. We studied balance robustness and performance, H-reflex gains, paired reflex depression, and co-contraction duration in ankle muscles after one and ten training sessions in 22 older adults (+65 yrs)....

Gas path analysis (GPA) plays a major role in turbofan condition monitoring. GPA uses thermodynamic engine models to identify deterioration of individual turbofan components. The accuracy of GPA results depends on the quality of the engine models. Turbofan performance is influenced by secondary performance parameters, which include variable...

The aviation sector accounted for 3.4 to 4.0% of the total anthropogenic radiative forcing in 2015. The sectors’growth is several percentage points larger than the annual fuel efficiency gain, resulting in an increasing climatechange impact. The world formulated goals for 2050 to limit anthropogenic climate change, the aviation sectorrequires a...

This paper introduces a method for gesture-based teleoperation where the human operator can virtually exist within the remote environment using mixed reality. The proposed method visually mixes the operator’s body with their perception of the remote environment, so that the operator is virtually present at the remote site. The idea is the that...

In past decades, small spacecraft have raised worldwide interest for their low cost and short development time. In general, three reaction wheels are needed for three-axis attitude control of general satellites. However, for small spacecraft where both volume and power budgets are limited, employing three wheels is a challenge. Therefore,...

Nowadays, research and innovation sectors undergo continuous change through innovations. Innovations consist of numerous environmental, social and financial factors that need to be linked with social and moral values. Towards this direction, the Responsible Innovation (RI) concept has emerged. Although RI is an extensively researched topic,...

Flight planning is a process of optimisation that is commonly solved by complex software tools. Quantifying the quality of such a system is for the users an unsolved problem. This paper proposes a method that measures the inefficiencies in different domains to gain insights in the performance of flight planning tools. The established assessment...

An important step in determining the performance of a commercial ship is to determine the vessel fuel consumption in offdesign conditions. In previous studies, the vessel fuel consumption is obtained using machine learning algorithms which use navigational data and meteorological data to train the models. Due to the inaccuracy of the weather...

In drinking water treatment plants, multiphase flows are a frequent phenomenon. Examples of such flows are pellet-softening and filter backwashing where liquid-solid fluidisation is applied. A better grasp of these fluidisation processes is needed to be able to determine optimal hydraulic states. In this research, models were developed, and...

The Netherlands has a severe shortage of care workers. The shortage is expected to increase in the coming years. Care-robots could provide a solution, by taking work out of the hands of the care workers. The potential utility of the care-robot is dependent on the functionality of the gripper. The goal of this study was to design and develop a...

Zero-carbon-dioxide-emitting hydrogen-powered aircraft have, in recent decades, come back on the stage as promising protagonists in the fight against global warming. Nevertheless, most recent studies agree that hydrogen aircraft would underperform their kerosene counterparts in terms of operative empty mass and specific energy consumption. The...

Supersonic intakes are essential in assuring proper combustion for operating ramjet engines on cruise missiles. However, due to increasing threats and a rapidly changing service environment, today's intakes do not fit anymore to comply with the new set of requirements to tackle the above challenges. Therefore, a novel supersonic intake design is...
