Ventilation events are the result of masses of air being transported from the water surface along the hull, through the propeller plane. Previous research in literature has shown that ventilation induces large and sudden variations of the load on the propeller. The response of the propulsion system had not been documented before. This is a...

A gap in the understanding of offshore wind submarine power cables is responsible for 70-80 % of failures in recent times. The failures originate from the phases of design, manufacturing, installation and operations. Joint industry collaborations such as the Cable Lifetime Monitoring project that form the background for this thesis, are aimed at...

During offshore construction with a Semi-Submersible Crane Vessel (SSCV) the vessel is station keeping by means of Dynamic Positioning (DP). DP enables a vessel to keep position and heading by utilizing its own propulsion, while being exposed to the environmental forces caused by waves, wind and current. In a comparison study between offshore...

Over the recent years, flood risks and losses have been increasing for coastal cities due to climate change, subsidence, population and economic growth. Hong Kong and Macau are two cities located in the Pearl River Delta that experience a significant flood risk due to storm surges. The increased losses and risks has sparked interest around the...

Destructive consequences of trapped space charges within HVDC coaxial cable insulation, such as accelerated aging, degradation, and breakdown, are some of the most significant challenges that manufacturers and users usually come up with. Pulsed Electro-Acoustic (PEA) method is a widely-used method for space charge detection and measurement, in...

Accurately forecasting charging demand is a major factor in energy providers’ ability to meet said demand. A number of methods have been proposed in the literature. This master thesis aims to provide a framework for energy providers to forecast charging demand due to increased EV adoption. Specifically, this research examines the effects that...

Automated vehicles with conditional driving automation (SAE level 3 (SAE, 2018)) will request the human driver to intervene when reaching its system boundaries by issuing a take-over request (TOR). This study is investigating whether a speech-based auditory take-over request is influencing the time it takes from automated to manual driving,...

Potential usage of the workspace of driving simulators is restricted by a lack of knowledge on oncoming maneuvers, due to the unpredictable nature of human drivers. This research aims to explore the possibility of using information from driver inputs, dynamic vehicle states, and features of the road environment to improve motion cueing through...

The development of automated vehicles on the road is in full swing. As vehicles are getting increasingly automated, the human factor is diminished or eventually removed from automated driving. Until then, a combination of human input and automation is necessary during automated driving. This research focuses on the interaction between humans and...

Introduction: Pes equinus with increased ankle joint stiffness is a common impairment in stroke and Cerebral Palsy (CP) patients with structural and/or neural deficits of the ankle muscles. Equinus gait is characterized by toe-strike, abnormal ankle plantarflexion and decreased ankle range of motion (ROM). A new ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) with...

Waste-to-energy is the process of generating energy from municipal waste. The most conventional energy recovery method is incineration, which takes place at a waste-to-energy plant. The incoming waste is collected in a bunker, where an overhead crane stacks and mixes the material before feeding it to the furnaces. The more homogeneous the waste...

Generative adversarial networks (GANs) have shown promising results when applied on partial differential equations and financial time series generation. This thesis investigates if GANs can be used to provide a strong approximation to the solution of stochastic differential equations (SDEs) of the Ito type. Standard GANs are only able to...

The inland waterways are an important part of the freight transport system of the Netherlands. In the coming years, a lot of maintenance and construction works are needed to keep the network operational. This can temporarily impact the availability of the waterways section which can have negative effects on the performance of inland vessels and...

The Netherlands will need to transform her traditionally fossil fueled energy system in the coming decades to achieve the goal of reducing CO2 emissions to net-zero in 2050. Therefore, an increase in renewable energy sources as solar and wind energy in the overall energy mix will be essential. However, due to the highly variable energy...

This project investigates the use of Augmented Reality (AR) in the context of research flight simulators to increase their visual fidelity in rotary-wing applications. The field of view of existing research simulators is often designed after fixed-wing aircraft and can be largely inferior to what is required to simulate helicopters. In...

New and existing bridges in the Netherlands must abide by structural safety codes, such as the Eurocode. In this code, structural safety is expressed through the reliability index 훽. For certain reference periods a threshold value for 훽 exists. When applying prescribed load models given in the Eurocode, the structure is guaranteed to at least...

In order to meet the climate goals to minimize the global temperature rise, an accelerated growth of renewable energy sources is necessary. Within the renewables market, the offshore wind sector takes a big part and has experienced a rapid growth over the past years. Around 80% of offshore wind turbines have a monopile foundation, (a large...

Traditionally, the different energy sectors, such as electricity and heat, are planned and operated separately and independently from each other. In the 1990s, electricity generation in Europe was dominated by conventional fuel sources like coal and oil, followed by gas. Due to the eventual depletion of those sources, and to escape from the...

Socio-technical systems consist of deeply interconnected and interdependent social entities and technical systems that collaborate to achieve a global goal. The individual characteristics and behaviours of each involved actor and their interactions define the resulting overall emergent system behaviour. Due to increased complexities in socio...
