As long as a wave has a large enough wavelength, it should reflect off of smooth surfaces specularly: that is what the law of reflection states. This phenomenon is widely known, and used in for instance sonars. Electrons that reflect off of boundaries within conductors should abide this law as well, due to the particle-wave duality. However, it...

The need for research of PV system performance in urban areas is increasing as more and more PV systems are installed each year. To facilitate this research, a PV monitoring station is constructed on the campus of the TU Delft in a complex urban geometry. Unfortunately, the diffuse horizontal irradiance (DHI) measurements that are measured using...

A main challenge port engineers had to tackle in recent years is wave penetration inside a harbour, as it determines vessels’ safe sailing and mooring, possibly causes unwanted vessel movements, and unequivocally regulates the execution of port operations. A physical scale model can describe wave penetration in a complete way. However, the...

Many people have certain dreams for their far future besides living a comfortable life, such as owning a vacation house or taking a long trip. However, most people do not have financial plans. The lack of having such plans decreases the chance of these wishes and goals to be realised.Although the majority starts saving for their retirement above...

During use of the smart electrosurgical knife, deterioration of the diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) signal intensity obstructs proper distinction between tissues. In order to reduce signal loss, this research has focused on the influence of smart electrosurgery on both the morphology and composition of the layer covering the optical fiber...

The Sentinel-5 Precursor satellite has a payload of the TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument, TROPOMI.The satellite was launched in 2017 by ESA with the intended goal of measuring trace gases in the atmosphere.One of the products of TROPOMI is the Tropospheric NO2 column. This product is based on thespectral measurements to obtain the column...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have the potential to make quality education affordable and available to the masses and reduce the gap between the most privileged and the most disadvantaged learners worldwide. However, this potential is overshadowed by low completion rates, often below 15%. Due to the high level of autonomy that is required...

The faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) is renewing its bachelor programme. For the new bachelor curriculum, to be implemented in September 2020, more flexibility and a focus on self-reflection and professional positioning are aimed for. <br/>By reflecting on one’s personality and qualities, more understanding of motives and ambitions...

Global phases are seismic waves that travel through the earth's core before emerging at the surface. Traditionally, global phases are used to obtain subsurface information up to 1 Hz. A recent study, however, found that signal present in the coda of strong, distant earthquakes contains higher frequencies. Quantitative analysis of the coda of...

Among women, breast cancer has the highest incidence rate of all types of cancer worldwide. For 80% of these patients, a treatment option is the surgical procedure known as breast conserving surgery (BCS). Re-excision is required in 10-60% of these patients, as positive margins are encountered post-operatively, showing the need of an intra...

Catoptric anamorphosis is an image which seems to be distorted, but looks normal when observed from a specific point of view and indirectly via a reflective object. While some methods already exist that can create such images, they are limited in the amount of differently shaped reflective objects they support or they require you to obtain a 3D...

Studying mangroves in the field can be very difficult; therefore it is in some situations better to model in a flume. The question is, to what extend are the situation in the field and the situation in the flume comparable with each other? This study focusses on reflection in the wave flume. Wave energy in a flume can be damped by placing a wave...

Theories regarding the implementation of more structured and frequent approaches to reflection in professional settings, is a topic that has received little attention in research. Therefore, the aim of this thesis was to gain a better understanding about design practitioners’ daily reflection patterns, with a focus on supporting a balanced...

In today’s volatile and disruptive business landscape, organizations experience intensified competition and an increased need to be more adaptive and dynamic in responding to change. In order to become more resilient, organizations need to shift from an efficiency focus to a learning focus. If everyone in an organization or ecosystem learns...

It is a given that the world changes. A changing world means that the problems society faces change too. Solving these problems has become more complex, and will so even more in the future. Increasingly, designers are the ones expected to be the ones to solve them. To that end, new design methods need to be devised to support designers in...

Yubu B.V., for whom the graduation project is carried out, provides a career orientation method (called Yubu) for high schools that uses serious games to motivate students to focus on choosing a study. Making decisions concerning a career is not something that stops after high school and therefore Yubu B.V. has taken interest in offering a...

The idea of the internet of things (IoT) states that devices with embedded electronics will outnumber the devices operated by humans. All those "things" will require connectivity to exchange information gathered from processed sensor data. A large part of the data will be sent through the air, such that mobile devices can be deployed without a...

Despite the fact that the price per watt-peak for photovoltaic modules are decreasing rapidly, there is a large population of people which have still not implemented photovoltaic technology in their everyday lives. An important reason why PV is still not the main source of electrical energy for these people is the uncertainty that comes with...

The topic which is considered in this thesis is: understanding the influence of beach morphology on the alongshore variance in wave run-up on an intermediate reflective beach, considering bars and cusps. The focus of this thesis is laid inside the swash zone, in which the water motion is present of waves that run up and run down on a beach....
