In this thesis, the influence of a combined drift angle, heeling angle and forward speed on the stability of a tug is researched. This is done to gain insight in the stability of tugs during escorting, where they operate at high drift angles, heeling angles and forward speed. The Damen RSD 2513 tug was simulated in steady CFD simulation using...

Man-made systems, such as manufacturing and transportation networks, and their interactions with the environment are driven by human-designed operational rules. These rules are most often based on the asynchronous occurrence of discrete events over time, such as the arrival and departure of trains at a station. The modelling, analysis, and...

Mangroves can provide coastal protection by attenuating waves, currents, and trapping sediment (Menéndez et al., 2020; Bao, 2011). The effect of mangroves on the hydrodynamics depends on their size, location, density, distribution and morphology of the vegetation (Mendez and Losada, 2004). Mangrove loss during storm events will therefore impact...

Timber high-rise buildings have been gaining in popularity. However, due to the low material stiffness of timber the stability systems of these buildings are often made with steel or concrete. To avoid this the material efficiency of the timber stability systems must be improved. The most material efficient stability systems for timber high-rise...

Reset controllers have the potential to enhance the performance of high-precision industrial motion systems. However, similar to other non-linear controllers, the stability analysis for these controllers is complex and often requires parametric model of the system, which may hinder their applicability. In this paper a frequency-domain...

Background: The primary aim of this study was to determine and compare the biomechanical properties of a fractured or intact rib after implant fixation on an embalmed thorax. Methods: Five systems were fixated on the bilateral fractured or intact (randomly allocated) 6th to 10th rib of five post-mortem embalmed human specimens. Each rib...

Theory and application of damage stability followed over the years two dissociated paths: static assessments and dynamic simulations. The first approach, being easy to apply and understand, has been preferred by ship designers and regulators; the second, more advanced and first-principle oriented, has been mainly reserved for research or high...

Elastic structures that can deflect without springback, known as neutrally stable structures, form a remarkable group within their field, since they require the energetic state to remain unchanged during elastic deformation. Several examples in the literature obtain this state of neutral stability by the application of pre-stress, either as a...

Currently, with the development of driving technologies, driverless vehicles gradually are becoming more and more available. Therefore, there would be a long period of time during which self-driving vehicles and human-driven vehicles coexist. However, for a mixed platoon, it is hard to control the formation due to the existence of the manual...

The field emission (FE) properties of TiS3 nanosheets and nanoribbons, synthesized by direct sulfuration of bulk titanium, are investigated. The nanosheets show an enhanced FE behavior with a low turn-on field of ∼0.3 V/μm, required for drawing an emission current density of ∼10 μA/cm2. Interestingly, the TiS3 nanosheet emitter delivered a...

This letter investigates the stability properties of the soft inverted pendulum with affine curvature - a template model for nonlinear control of underactuated soft robots. We look at how changes in physical parameters affect stability and equilibrium. We give conditions under which zero dynamics corresponding to a collocated choice of the...

Before the operation of newly constructed railways, tamping and stabilizing machines should be used to improve the quality of ballast beds. With the expansion of the railway network and increase of speeds and axle loads, higher quality and efficiency for tamping and stabilizing operation are required. However, previous studies did not involve...

Data assimilation methods have been implemented on a slope stability problem, and the performance of different constitutive models and data assimilation schemes has been investigated. In the first part, a data assimilation scheme called the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is implemented using a finite element model (FEM) and its performance with...

Central configurations provide the only closed-form analytical solutions of the n-body problem. All possible central configurations of three bodies have been extensively studied along with the stability of the associated periodic orbits. Stable cases have been found for the Lagrangian triangle configuration, which we see occurring with the...

Changing the way of power production on a Floating, Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO)<br/>system by using renewable power can contribute to reducing an FPSO’s carbon footprint while operating. Bluewater Energy Services is interested in the use of a wind turbine placed on top of an<br/>FPSO, to power the FPSO’s internal electricity grid....

Terps are artificial dwelling mounds mostly found in the northern regions of the Netherlands, built to provide safe ground against water in such areas affected by flooding, storm surges, and high tides, before the development of dikes. In this thesis, the stability of these terps was evaluated via FEM models and analyses performed on PLAXIS....

Laser satellite communication offers new opportunities in global data transfer, and can provide crucial infrastructure to facilitate the ever-growing demand. Creating an optical link of 10.000 km in length requires a telescope with extreme thermal stability, in an environment where thermal loading is periodical as a result of the satellite’s...

Naturalistic driving research with a focus on trucks has been gaining momentum in the past decade. With the advancement in sensor technology and access to big data, it becomes possible to understand driver behaviour at a more fundamental level. This can assist in mitigating the impact trucks have on the environment while enhancing safety....

Quasi-satellite orbits (QSOs) are orbits around the smaller primary in three-body systems. The MMX mission (developed by JAXA, to be launched in 2024) will use QSOs to orbit Phobos, before landing on its surface. This work studies the feasibility of using the invariant manifolds of three-dimensional QSOs for designing landing trajectories, using...

Wind farm interactions with the surrounding airflow leads to a reduction in velocity greater than the linear sum of single turbine inductions and is known as global or upstream blockage. The mechanisms and magnitude of global blockage effect are not yet fully understood. Models to simulate upstream blockage to improve efficiency estimates and...
