All around the world floods are a growing problem. Dealing with high water levels in residential areas is of great importance. The delta area of Macabebe, in the Manila Bay, has to cope with daily flooding, caused by the river and the sea. Groundwater is pumped and used for local industry, causing land subsidence and worsening the problems....

Sediment nourishments have become an attractive alternative to hard measures in counteracting long-term river bed degradation. Due to the large degree of uncertainty concerning mixed sediment morphodynamics, river authorities conduct field studies to collect data that will help in the calibration of morphological models, eventually used to...

A pilot for a large scale, fully integrated chain of CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS) has been initiated in the port of Rotterdam. The initiative aims to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of CCS and show that it can be deployed on a large scale for power plants and energy-intensive industries that emit large volumes of...

Advances in technology during the last decade have made piloted vehicles a reality. With an increasing level of vehicle automation, the role of the driver changes from controlling and observing the driving environment into becoming a passenger. However, with the introduction of piloted driving, the user has to trust his life to a machine....

The wide scale integration of distributed energy resources (DERs) in the distribution networks (LV/MV) over the last few decades has resulted in new challenges for the protection system. This thesis work explores the possibility to overcome challenges associated with overcurrent protection schemes, which are conventionally employed for...

With the introduction of the BS115, an ultra-light two-seater general aviation aircraft, a new opportunity for military pilot training is presented. To increase the training potential of this aircraft, the training effectiveness has been investigated. Previous research on training effectiveness assessment has failed to address the influence of...

Loss of Control In-Flight is the most prevalent cause of fatal accidents in commercial aviation. Surprise and startle are commonly suspected as contributing factors. Aviation authorities recommend to include surprise in training. However, studies indicate current training is in some cases too predictable as variations are brought to a minimum,...

The objective of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the morphological behaviour of a sandy foreshore in the Markermeer, along the Houtribdijk. The research is primarily based on monitoring data obtained from the Building with Nature (EcoShape) project “Pilot Houtribdijk”. The focus is on the morphological development of the...

Landing is one of the most difficult tasks of flying an aircraft and a majority of the incidents and accidents is related to the final approach and landing phase of flight. Comprehensive training programs are required to prepare (novice) pilots for this last phase of flight, and facilitate the development of robust manual flying skills. Various...

Loss Of Control In-flight (LOC-I) is currently the largest cause of accidents for the world wide commercial jet transport fleet. To decrease the occurrence of this type of accident, procedures have been modified and pilot training has been increased. However, current training devices lack the appropriate flight models and motion capabilities to...

A worldwide civil aviation accident survey for the period of 2002 till 2011, conducted by the CAA-UK shows that in this time period nearly 40% of all the aircraft accidents involved loss of control. Despite the fatal outcomes, reconfigurable flight control might have been able to recover the aircraft by efficiently utilizing the remaining...

History has shown that a larger flight crew does not per se imply that aircraft operations will be safer. The goal of this thesis is to determine the technical hurdles to Single Pilot Commercial Operations (SPCO). Continued technological developments, the upsurge of commercial Unmanned Aerial Systems, the non-negligible cost of air crews, and...

The sensor-based approach of Incremental Backstepping is applied to flight control law design in this research project. It allows the usage of the same control law on different types of aircraft without the need for redesign. Apart from full state availability, the derivation of Incremental Backstepping assumes instantaneous control action. Due...

Due to an asset swap in July 2008, Statkraft became a shareholder of two 20 MW biomass fuelled power plants in Emden (BKE) and Landesbergen (BKL), Germany. Both power plants are able to combust almost every solid biomass, but the main fuel is used-wood. Currently, the procurement of the fuel for both plants is outsourced to E.ON. Statkraft is...
