To predict the effect of a floating viscoelastic slab on the propagation and attenuation of gravity waves, a theoretical linear model has been developed. The slab has been modeled as a Kelvin-Voigt model and the fluid is assumed to be ideal. For long and short wave theory a dispersion relation for gravity waves covered by a viscoelastic slab of...

A wave entering a harbor will be diffracted and reflected, depending on the shape and the construction of breakwaters, quays and other objects in the harbor. The incoming wave can increase or decrease in height and a resonance can occur. This affects the manouvering of ships and the movement of moored ships, which influences the loading and...

Een teenconstructie van een golfbreker is het deel van een golfbreker dat zich aan de onderzijde van het golfbrekertalud bevindt. Een teenconstructie geeft steun aan het voortalud van de golfbreker en voorkomt, samen met andere golfbrekeronderdelen, het wegspoelen van constructiemateriaal en ondergrond vanonder een golfbreker. Bij het...

At the Laboratory of Acoustic Imaging and Sound Control, much research is done in the field of room acoustics. The impulse response is widely regarded as the most meaningful characteristic in room acoustics. For a certain combination of source and receiver position, the impulse response is the sound pressure at the receiver position as a...

A new and innovative idea to reduce the wave reflection in front of vertical walls is by means of dynamic breakwaters, which dissipate wave energy by using moving elements. These moving elements in combination with a spring and a 'dashpor' to dissipate energy reduce the wave reflection in a wide range offrequencies (see Figure 2-1, 2-2 for...

In a consortium Iv-Infra has made a proposal for a storm surge barrier to protect the city of New Orleans against hurricanes like Katrina. The design is a pile supported concrete structure with a considerable complex superstructure. The superstructure of the reference design consists of a perforated inclined wall and a vertical back wall. Since...

Diffraction diagrams are frequently utilized by engineers within the feasibility and early design phases of a project. These helpful graphics, based on directional spreading and wavelength, can be used for a number of layouts and angles of incidence. In spite of the tendency to design breakwaters for the fullest dissipation of wave energy,...

During this user centered design project for Wacom Europe GmbH a new accessory for the Interactive White Board (IWB) was designed. This product for the educational market combines pressure sensitive reflective LCD technology with Wacom’s pen technology. Right at the start of this project users have been introduced to these technologies. They...

The design formula for rubble mound breakwaters by Van der Meer has an unclear Notional Permeability term. This term causes a lot of confusion for designers. In the past many people have tried to derive a better formulation for that term by experimental and analytical research. The goal of this study was to obtain a better formulation along a...

The concept of design thinking is highly wining ground not only to the design engineering field but also in fields related and associated with business and management. An increasing amount of non designers who use design thinking emerges. Thus, the purpose of this thesis is to transfer design thinking qualities to non designers. Service Science...

Throughout the history of exploration for hydrocarbons, illumination and imaging in structurally complex geology with high-velocity contrasts has been a challenge. Recently introduced technological innovations such as dual-sensor streamers towed behind seismic vessels, provide new means to tackle these problems. Separating wavefields into...

Contemporary professional life gives stress for granted; it is not just necessary but an essential part of our lives. Stress is not a problem in itself, without it, we wouldn't feel any motivation to improve our daily life; but when it starts to reach the limits of our tolerance, it can begin to affect our every day, making us feel sick, anxious...

The transport tariff structure determines the charges to users of the electricity grids. This allocation can give various incentives. It is unclear whether the charges set by the current transport tariff structure reflect the targets set by the government. Furthermore, increased decentralized generation is a likely future scenario. It is unknown...

Cancer. Probably one of the most feared words when discussing your or a loved one’s health. It is needless to say that the diagnosis of cancer has a big impact on people. The diagnosis and treatment can cause a disruption in their emotional well-being, which can also distress their family and friends. This graduation project eventually focused...

Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) allows spectral tissue sensing through optical fibers at the tip of a needle, endoscope, or other medical device. A so-called photonic tool could be applicable in a variety of application areas to aid in diagnostic decisions or to support image-guided procedures. The use of light in combination with medical...

A graphical user interface was developed, allowing researchers and engineers to find thicknesses as to optimize the reflectivity of a multilayer stack, dependent on wavelength, materials and angle of incidence. Unlike previous research, the code allows for full freedom in possible thicknesses. Despite this, however, alternating thicknesses seem...
