Auxetic materials are increasingly used in the field of sports, defense, bio-medicine, and acoustic-filtering due to their unconventional behavior of exhibiting a negative Poisson's effect. The prospective use of auxetics to mitigate shock and impact forces have proven the relevance of research on auxetics. It becomes of paramount importance to...

Wirebonding is an interconnection technology used to connect a chip to its LED package. It is currently not well understood which wirebond characteristics are best to tailor to prevent the failure of wirebonds. The focus of this thesis is to understand the physics-of-failure of wirebonds via an experimental approach. Therefore, an experimental...

The demand for offshore wind farm installation is increasing in recent years as the concern in using sustainable energy source is rising. One of the primary steps in constructing offshore wind farm is the pile installation which is a high-risk activity due to the expensive offshore installation vessels requirement. Any factor which can result in...

The inversion process of data sets acquired with the electrical resistivity tomography can be a computational expensive calculation, because it requires a lot of forward simulations. Since computational resources are limited, the inversion for large field surveys can require immense computing times. One approach for reducing the computing times...

Conventional high voltage test sources, i.e., transformers (cascaded and resonant), impulse generators, and rectifier circuits generate 50 Hz/60 Hz sinusoidal, lightning and switching impulses, and DC respectively. For arbitrary wave shapes, function generator and HV amplifier setup are available up to 50 kV and few kHz signal bandwidths....

With the first Five Year Plan of 1928 Stalin initiated a period of massive industrialisation of remote zones of Russia. This lead to the creation of several Monotowns, newly built industrial settlements based on one economical source or industry.
The project takes as a study case the town of Togliatti, the largest built in Soviet Union and...

This research focused on the question whether it is possible to predict the density of tropical hardwoods with acceptable accuracy based on drill resistance measurements. To assess the feasibility, the influence of the characteristics of the drill resistance measurement tool; the Resistograph® and the wood species have been investigated. With...

The main intention of this thesis is the proposal of a new approach of the landscape that takes into account the local context in a different way. The complete and holistic understanding of the local character of the area and the interpretation of it with contemporary means will create a basis of a self-conscious design. Time-resistant...

In this thesis the differences between the monohull and semi-submersible are investigated. For a general heavy lift crane operation and its operational profile, the difference is performance and total cost are calculated. These are used to determine the turning point, the point where the semi-submersible is more favourable for a heavy lift crane...

Half of the long-termed disabled stroke survivors experience increased hyper-resistance of the wrist. Discrimination between the two components of joint hyper-resistance, i.e. the neural reflexive and intrinsic tissue component, is important since the components require a different treatment method. To discriminate between the two components,...

When a quay wall does not meet the safety requirements it has to be replaced by a new quay wall. During the entire replacement project many stakeholders are affected. This can lead to resistance against the project. Resistance can be expected when the interests of the stakeholders are not (sufficiently) integrated in the design or construction...

Jumbo Maritime is a heavy lift shipping and offshore transportation & installation contractor. The Fairplayer is one of the J-class vessels that is capable of performing offshore installation work. The two 900 ton Huisman cranes can lift up to 1800 ton combined, but the insufficient static stability of the Fairplayer results in a maximum...

This thesis deals with determination of Resistance (R) value and Heat Capacity of building envelopes in the commonly found residential architecture in Holland i.e. pitched roof houses. The aim of this thesis is to find an easy to implement novel method which gives reasonably accurate results. In the absence of actual sensor data, the data-sets...

Shock Safe Nepal was founded as a response to the 2015 Nepal earthquakes to function as a platform to contribute to the development of knowledge on earthquake safe housing. The goal of the report of team 5 is to validate and optimise the design of the pilot house that was created based on the work of previous teams, and the development on...

Two important performance parameters of a ship are fuel consumption and motions in a seaway. Besides a well-designed hull, several appendages can be used to increase the performance. One of these is a resistance reducing fixed foil behind the transom of the ship. This wing has the potential to create large lift forces near the aft of the ship,...

Beach nourishments or sand replenishments are applied by the use of pipelines or the rainbow method. Replenished sand is then moved and levelled by bulldozers. This is a passive approach to process the outflow of material. The land based equipment is dependent from tides and water levels, and significant effort is required to install and...

Long distance ocean towing is a commonly used transportation method in the oil & gas and renewable energy industries. Barges with cargo, vessels and various offshore structures are towed from and to location. Boskalis participates in this industry through its subsidiaries Smit and Fairmount Marine. From experience with these transports, it...

Aftercare of sanitary landfills represents a burden for future generations, for emission potential of leachate and gases remains for hundred of years. Treatment methods have to be developed in order to accelerate waste degradation and reduce emission potential preferably within the time-span of one generation. Aeration seems a promising...
