Bimanual coordination is essential for the performance of daily activities, but the underlying motor control mechanisms are not yet fully understood. The goal of the present study is to identify the contribution of contralateral responses in the wrist joints to the performance of a bimanual task. Contralateral responses could possibly be used in...

Climate change, as a result from global warming, requires an energy transition: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and a radical innovation of the global energy system to proceed apace. Offshore wind is an important source of clean, renewable energy, and it plays a key role in the transition. 80% of the worldwide...

Repair and maintenance of products require few resources in a circular economy, minimising the environmental impact of manufacturing and use of products. Although lightweight lattice structures have been widely investigated in various fields owing to their advantages in terms of their mechanical characteristics and the development of additive...

As collisions between aircraft and birds happen many thousands of times every year, all aspects of such impact events need to be taken into account in the process of designing an aircraft. One aspect that poses a risk is caused by the vibrations induced during bird impact. These vibrations are propagated through the aircraft structure by stress...

In a quest to breathe new life into public spaces and engage with its today’s increasingly (inter-)connected users, robotic architectural components seem to open up possibilities to give agency to building component. A new field of research has been involving multi-agent robotic systems in the architectural design and/or fabrication process....

For decades the space domain has been used for military purposes. When enemy forces establish counter-space capabilities, this could become a weakness. Responsive Space is a concept that focuses on replenishing lost capabilities and/or granting additional capabilities from space assets quickly. The continuous miniaturization of technologies has...

Unlike outdoor environments, there is no wide-spread solution to positioning inside a building. Indoorsolutions rely on pre-installation of infrastructure, such as Bluetooth beacons or ultra-wide bandtechnology. Recently, there has been growing interest in the use of Augmented Reality (AR) for indoorpositioning. AR devices use an algorithm known...

The power of sound is immense. It provides an immersive experience for the user in many different forms, such as noise, melodies, voices or even a song. It is a tricky genre unlike light and temperature, and is highly complex to predict and control the user behavior in terms of sound. Thus, the intention is to correct the acoustics as a post...

A platform needs to have sufficient market potential, represented by the number of users who can join a platform. Platform openness affects the ease of actors joining the platform. Hence, in order to increase the chances of platform success, platforms want to maximize market potential and consequently also platform openness. This is problematic...

This thesis presents the potential of solar energy to answer the increasing demand for sustainable energy. Multiple floating solar parks are installed on inland water bodies. This trend is a result of the lack of surface for PV systems and a result of legislation on national and international governmental levels, for the reduction of greenhouse...

Increased uptake of variable renewable generation and further electrification of energy demand necessitate efficient coordination of flexible demand resources to make most efficient use of power system assets. Flexible electrical loads are typically small, numerous, heterogeneous and owned by self-interested agents. Considering the multi...

Practical combinations of floor configurations and support conditions are studied for the development of a lightweight timber building method that is suitable for multi-family residential buildings. Classical vibration theory forms the base for a methodology that is developed to assess transmittance of vibrations to adjoining floor fields....

During the renovation of auditoria and concert halls, the acoustic quality is normally evaluated from measurements of impulse responses. One possibility for evaluating the acoustic quality from the measurements (the simulations) consists of convolving anechoic music with the measured (or simulated) impulse responses. In this way, a psycho...

Measuring neuronal responses along all three spatial dimensions is the next step, beyond the capacity of established 2D microelectrode arrays (MEAs), to record electric activity inside tissues with highly accurate spatial resolution. This research presents silicon-based planar arrays of 3D microelectrodes, whereby each microelectrode supports...

Background: When two acoustic sinusoids of slightly different frequencies are presented in the same ear, the listener perceives a beating sound with a rate the difference frequency between the two sinusoids. In the dichotic presentation of two acoustic sinusoids with slightly different frequencies, separately at the two ears, the listener...

This thesis is about communication between the emergency services and the logistics sector by means of information technology (IT), during incidents with hazardous substances on the road. The Dutch emergency services need information to deal effectively with this kind of incidents. Some of this information is in the possession of logistics...

So far thermoset based composites have been used in primary aircraft structures, owing to their good performance and vast research on the subject. Recently thermoplastic based composites also gained an increased attention and there is a push towards adopting these for primary aircraft structures as well. This interest for thermoplastic...

Experimental aeroelastic data is often needed in order to validate the output of fluid-structure interaction numerical simulations or to gain insight into the physics of a problem without the need of intermediate modelling. Traditional measurement approaches in wind tunnels have relied on the simultaneous use of several measurement systems ...
