This is a thesis report in Integrated Product Design, along with STG Aerospace in Cwmbran, Wales. It is a design project centered around the entry lighting of an aircraft galley. The analysis provided possibilities to reduce stress using light. These are showing information from trusted and authoritative sources, enlarging...

Stress is a well-known phenomenon and something everyone experiences. Urban stress however, stress caused by and in the built environment of urban areas, is less known. Still, quite some research has been done on this topic from the fields of sociology and psychology, but there are not many resources that focus on urban stress - with all its...

Within the field of architecture there has been done a lot of research of the experience of architecture and the behaviour of people in cities and around buildings. There is however little knowledge about the intangibles related to (the parts of) buildings that invite to (daily) rituals. A building provides place for rituals and taking part in...

Bed roughness is an important parameter for the prediction of sediment transport as well as calculating flow conditions near the bed. Numerical models are extensively used to make these predictions. In these models it is fundamental to have proper values for bed roughness. The bed roughness is being estimated using a dataset from an ongoing...

Tank containers are intermodal containers for the transport of liquids, gases, and powders as bulk cargo However, hazardous vibration during transportation would generate fatigue damage at discharge area. This thesis aims at calculating fatigue damage at discharge area of a specified tank container.

The calculation is performed in time...

A composite wind turbine blade is partially thick-walled to comply with high strength criteria. When the manufacturer’s recommended cure cycle (MRCC), which is designed for thin-walled components, is used for thick-walled components it can lead to high levels of residual stress. This experimental research investigates different cure cycles for...

This thesis presents a new methodology for representing the effect of spiral flow on the bed shear stress magnitude and direction, using a low-vertical-resolution three-dimensional model. Furthermore, it discusses the performance of the new methodology in comparison with conventional high-vertical-resolution three-dimensional and depth-averaged...

Fatigue cracks could occur in the material of offshore and marine structures that are cyclically loaded. These cracks occur due to the cyclic stresses induced by the waves causing premature failure. Monitoring these fatigue cracks using a wireless system gives the opportunity to guarantee the integrity of the structure without manual inspection,...

As the insurance industry engages in numerous processes which are characterized by the exchange of data which is updated by multiple parties; a blockchain, as a single source of truth, has the potential to increase efficiency and reduce the complexity of these processes. However, the complexity, uncertainty, transforming potential and barriers...

In the past decades the understanding of fracture of ductile material has increased substantially. Research has shown that the onset of fracture highly depends on the full state of stress inside the material. Better understanding of fracture resulted in more advanced and complex fracture models being conceived, allowing researchers to predict...

Externally triggered lengthening or shortening (actuation) of one or more members in a lattice material can be used to achieve macroscopic shape changes. The three main attributes looked for in 2D lattice materials to be deemed suitable for actuation are in-plane isotropy, high specific elastic properties and limited energy requirement for...

Gasunie Transport Services (GTS) is the operator of the natural gas transmission network in the Netherlands. This network is an entry-exit system where entry and exit capacities can be booked by parties called shippers. Variations in usage lead to an enormous number of possible entry-exit combinations. GTS must be able to accommodate all...

Delamination is one of the failure modes of composites prone to happen in the case of a car crash. In the early stages of car design, finite element analysis is used as a tool to analyze structural concepts. In order to model delamination in a newly developed material model, it is analyzed in two parts: detection and effects of delamination. To...

Extreme folding damage of open-ended tubular piles could occur during piling in onshore practices. Amazonehaven unique quay wall removal gave the opportunity to study king pile’s failure close to toe. King piles are primary piles in a combined wall system, exposed to static and dynamic load. It is argued that the unexpected pile toe failure have...

This project explores the potential of virtual reality (VR) as a training tool at the crew safety & security training (CSST) department of the Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM). With a research and prototype driven approach, a VR simulation and its integration into the training programme are designed. This simulation aims to improve stress...

In this thesis diffuser performance will be simulated with computational fluid dynamics, which will be done with the program Ansys Fluent. The expanding geometry creates an adverse pressure gradient and under certain conditions there will also be separation.

At first a relative simple simulation will be done of a one-directional...

This master thesis is built up around two questions. First: Is it possible to calibrate a ductile failure model, where the strain at failure is a function of stress triaxiality and Lode angle, using only a single SENB specimen? The failure model that is referred to describes local failure in a finite element model to simulate ductile fracture....

Near free edges of fibre reinforced composite laminates modelled with homogeneous layers, the presence of high gradient interlaminar stresses has been found theoretically. Over a span of nearly 50 years, various methods, including numerical and analytical have been employed for analysis of the high gradient stresses which sometimes exist to an...

At the end of a power transmission line, the cable should be terminated carefully, otherwise it will create problems during the operation. A special equipment called termination is designed to tackle down the problems from cable ends. The main functional part of a termination is a piece of rubber with a cone shape. This rubber cone has a semi...

Knowledge of the state of stress is of significant importance to have a thorough understanding of subsurface geomechanics. The World Stress Map (WSM) is the main source of present-day stress data in Western Europe and indicates a regional NW-SE maximum horizontal stress (SH) trend for the Netherlands. However, for more local studies the WSM...
