Wind farm layouts in industry show a range of patterns with an overall trend from regular to irregular patterns over time. Wind farm layout optimisation studies in literature generally result in irregular wind turbine patterns. Review of existing literature shows that the performance of irregular and regular wind farm layouts has not been...

A low-speed aerodynamic analysis on the conventional NACA ram-air inlet of the Airbus A320 with a new closure flap was conducted. The conventional closure flap mechanism inside the NACA ram-air inlet is replaced by a morphing plate design. Steady-state Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) based Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations...

The built environment is among the highest energy consuming sectors worldwide. However, buildings have large surface areas that can be used to improve the building energy performance. One example is by integration of photovoltaic systems in roofs and facades, which can reduce the carbon footprint of the built environment. An emerging field that...

Multiterminal dc (MTDC) network is preferred due to its reliability, security of supply and flexibility. However, MTDC network also comes with the protection challenges resulting from dc faults. Hence, the dc circuit breaker (DC CB) is imperative in such a network. In these recent years, several DC CB technologies have been proposed and...

Urban transshipment network is a transshipment solution for last-mile distribution in dense metropolitan regions. In this network, a set of micro hubs located in the urban areas are used for deconsolidating shipments and transferring them from high capacity vehicles to light freight vehicles that eventually deliver to customer locations. Due to...

This graduation project is about transforming Campus North on the Hembrug terrain in Zaandam as part of the studio Heritage and Architecture. Hembrug is a former military production terrain and was the logistic heart of the “Stelling of Amsterdam”. This area was left vacant since 2003, but in recent years new occupants inhabit Hembrug. The...

The current housing market in the Netherlands depicts a need for energy-efficient buildings for young professionals. Performative Computational Architecture (PCA), as computational methodology, is a valuable source of knowledge and design support to integrate the buildings’ performances at early stages. By applying PCA, this thesis explores and...

The main objective was to analyse the effects of rotor dynamics, and in particular lead-lag and flapping dynamics, on incremental backstepping (IBS). The main focus in this research was on the angular rate controller of a rotorcraft, since it required an idealised rotorcraft model to establish the IBS controller. The idealised rotorcraft model...

Deep neural networks have revolutionized multiple fields within computer science. It is important to have a comprehensive understanding of the memory requirements and performance of deep networks on low-resource systems. While there have been efforts to this end, the effects of severe memory limits and heavy swapping are understudied. We have...

Multi-agent systems often communicate to perform better at their tasks. However, messages sometimes get lost after sending, and the communication is disrupted. This paper looks into the effects of messages having a chance of not arriving with an agent using the Blocks World for Teams simulation environment. The environment uses agent teams...

Currently, literature regarding Multiagent Path Finding (MAPF) does not give a broad enough overview of all the different approaches. Many papers are hard to read and require proper knowledge of MAPF. The goal of this report is to give a global overview of MAPF. To achieve this goal, we provide a detailed explanation of what MAPF problems look...

Javelin throwing in the winter is not fun when the temperature approaches zero degrees. That is way javelin throwers move indoors for training. The problem with training indoors it that there is no room to throw a javelin 80 meters, so a different type of training is used. The javelin fitted with a rubber tip is thrown into a net. This way, the...

The effort to reduce global anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions has caused a growing interest in the use of sustainable energy sources. One of the potentially sustainable energy sources considered as an alternative for the currently used fossil sources is biomass. Biomass is organic matter that originates from plants or animals which can be...
