With the rapid development of Quantum Computers (QC) and QC Simulators, there will be an increased demand for functioning Quantum Algorithms in the near future. Some of the most ubiquitously useful algorithms are solvers for linear systems of equations. Since the conception of the Quantum Linear Solver Algorithm (QLSA) by Harrow, Hassidim and...

To obtain unambiguous ground truth of water-ice residing in permanently shaded regions of the Moon and to characterise the local regolith, ESA considers a mission involving an instrumented penetrator implanted there by high-speed impact. Released into lunar orbit, the European Lunar Penetrator (ELUPE) Descent Module will autonomously traverse a...

Currently a new small and automated dairy factory for the onsite production of cheese at farms is under devel-opment. This new factory aims at the production of cheese without any human interaction, based on the (raw) milk from cows who are milked with a milking robot. At the moment only a small test factory exists, in which human interaction is...

When data in higher dimensions with a certain constraint on it, say a set of locations on a sphere, is encountered, some classical statistical analysis methods fail, as the data no longer assumes its values in a linear space. In this thesis we consider such datasets and aim to do likelihood-based inference on the center of the data. To model the...

Lane change manoeuvres are known to vary widely in lane change duration. This is thought to be an effect of the surrounding vehicles and personal preference of drivers. However, little is known about the effect on steering behaviour during a lane change manoeuvre. Moreover, the relation of the effect of traffic to inter- and intra-driver...

Port call efficiency (PCE) is an important factor in the port choice of shipping lines. This research strives to contribute to the current work on PCE optimization. This is done by applying relative new techniques on port call related data. A combination of process mining (PM) and discrete event simulation (DEVS) is explored, with the Port of...

Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) algorithms provide accurate localization for autonomous vehicles and provide essential information for the path planning module. However, SLAM algorithms as- sume a static environment in order to estimate a location. This assumption influences the pose estimation in dynamic urban environments. The...

Congestion in the landside air cargo supply chain occurs for different concurring reasons. Lack of coordination between freight forwarders, as example, might create truck congestion on the ground handler side. Horizontal collaboration between forwarders can be introduced and modeled via mathematical programming to mitigate congestion. Resulting...

Persuasive games have great properties for facilitating lasting attitude change for complex societal issues, making them a valuable tool for achieving attitude change towards cooperation and information sharing that is often necessary for effective multi-actor decision-making. It is assumed that persuasive game design principles are key drivers...

The Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCoE) produced by PV systems is determined by yield (kWh) and cost of the system. Reducing the LCoE of the solar power can be achieved either by increasing the yield or by reducing the cost. The yield of bi-facial PV systems is promoted by high efficiency and a high bi-faciality factor.

Yield due to...

Philippine low-income housing is uncomfortable since it is not built to deal with the hot and humid climate in a passive way. Since local vernacular architecture is known to have a good climatic responsive performance, the aim of this research is to learn how Philippine vernacular design strategies can improve thermal comfort for low-lying, sub...

Rapidly expanding urban developments are having an inverse relationship on the surrounding urban environment. Facades and the materials that they are composed of can have a large impact on the warming of urban microclimates. By reducing or cooling the external surfaces of a facade a building maybe able to offset its contribution to the urban...

Airline schedules are constantly being updated to deal with disruptions originating from crew absence, upstream delays, mechanical failures and other sources. A robust schedule is capable of dealing with- or absorbing negative effects of such unexpected events. Schedule robustness, accounted for proactively in the scheduling g phase, is...

Several different kinds of Miracoli Dinner kits are produced on Line 4 in Oud-Beijerland. The current method of planning of production is not sufficient in terms of product availability and planning nervousness. A new method of Most-Urgent-First planning is proposed and a simulation is run to measure the performance in order to see if another...

In the past decades, the global demand for energy has increased. The aim to reduces has let to an increase in the production of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar energy. However, there are more major energy resources available in the oceans, such as wave and tidal power. The estimated potential global energy resource in waves is...

KLM Engineering & Maintenance Component Services manages a spare part pool. They are responsible for ensuring spare part availability for their contracted customers. For rotable spare parts, which are interchangeable and repairable, the supply chain is closed-loop. As the demand for spare parts is sporadic, with large zero demand periods, a...

Aircraft component maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) outsourcing is a rather new phenomenon. Nowadays, component support solutions that are flexible with predictable cost are pursued. In other words, the time to restore and cost of MRO are aimed to be minimised. This research project is collaboration with one of the worlds leaders in...

In order to assist project developers in efficient offshore wind farm installation planning a decision-support tool has been developed. The tool combines Discrete Event Simulation and Black-box Optimization. The focus of the development was on providing the flexibility allowing a user to compare various installation strategies and impact on the...

The offshore industry is a conservative industry, sticking to rigid best-practices and reluctant to try new techniques. A promising new technique that hasn't found much adoption in offshore industry is SPH. This thesis aims to improve the reach and use of SPH within the offshore industry. With an abundance of world's unexplored hydrocarbons...

There is a convergence occurring between the energy demands of modern society and the sustainability requirements of the environment in which we live in. The combination of these factors is driving the development and implementation of an updated power system with integration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES). This calls for an update of the...
