Various machine learning algorithms have been applied to find optimal lowthrust<br/>satellite trajectories, however, no fair comparison of their accuracy has been made yet. In this paper, two common and promising supervised machine learning algorithms are compared for their regression capacities:<br/>the artificial neural network and the...

Concurrent multiscale finite element analysis (FE<sup>2</sup>) is a powerful approach for high-fidelity modeling of materials for which a suitable macroscopic constitutive model is not available. However, the extreme computational effort associated with computing a nested micromodel at every macroscopic integration point makes FE<sup>2</sup>...

This research aims to develop a method to create a wind farm layout that is robust against the uncertainty source, the inter-year variation of Weibull parameters and wind direction sector probabilities. A wind farm layout optimisation problem under uncertainty corresponds to optimisation under uncertainty (OUU), which is computationally...

Burn injuries occur daily and can have severe physical and mental effects both in short and long term, such as disabilities due to severe skin contraction. Even though the mortality rate has decreased over the years, the need for a higher quality of life after severe burns remains. Decreasing the probability of a severe contraction is essential...

With the focus on the reduction of fossil fuel emissions, aircraft are continuously growing towards higher fuel efficiency. The traditional limits of aircraft performance can be surpassed through the use of composite materials which offer a reduction in aircraft weight. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of aircraft design, integration of...

Various engineering applications rely on efficient, high performance materials to overcome design challenges. This high performance can be achieved by engineering micro-heterogenous materials also known as composites. Since the behavior of composites relies heavily on micro-scale interactions between different components, modeling...

As urbanization increases around the world, high-rise buildings will continue to become a more prevailing typology, nonetheless, due in part to cumbersome computational simulations, rarely do designers have enough information during the early stages of design, which is the time when their choices affect the most the efficiency of their building....

Although a transition to more sustainable energy production is necessary, fossil fuels will remain a crucial contributor to the world's energy production in the near future. In numerically maximizing the production of these fuels, as well as in many other optimization problems, an objective function has to be optimized on the basis of an input...

In this thesis a design optimisation framework was developed, with the aim of reducing the cord usage in TANIQ’s Large Bore Hose product family. To decrease the finite element analysis time, an axisymmetric finite element model was developed using ABAQUS’s rebar method, where the directional cord properties are smeared in hoop direction. The two...

Damen Shipyards Gorinchem has found deficiencies in the process of developing concept designs of Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs). There is a need to increase the efficiency of this process, meaning that (1) the speed has to be increased, (2) the accuracy of designs has to be increased and (3) the risk of deviations of the project plan has to be...

An efficient algorithm is proposed for Bayesian model calibration, which is commonly used to estimate the model parameters of non-linear, computationally expensive models using measurement data. The approach is based on Bayesian statistics: using a prior distribution and a likelihood, the posterior distribution is obtained through application...

When a black-box optimization objective can only be evaluated with costly or noisy measurements, most standard optimization algorithms are unsuited to find the optimal solution. Specialized algorithms that deal with exactly this situation make use of surrogate models. These models are usually continuous and smooth, which is beneficial for...

Given its geographical location and history, water defense is of utmost importance for the Netherlands. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) offers a promising approach for system identification of hydraulic structures in this water defense system. The aim of SHM is to set sensors on structures and use the monitored responses to identify...

Beamforming is a signal processing technique used in highly directional antennas. An array of antenna elements transmits the same signal, but with a different time delay for each element. By providing the right time delays for each antenna element, the whole array transmits a high-powered signal in one desired direction. This technique can be...

This work presents a method to emulate the flow dynamics of physically based hydrodynamic simulators under variations of time-dependent rainfall and parametric scenarios. Although surrogate modelling is often employed to deal with the computational burden of this type of simulators, common techniques used for model emulation as polynomial...

New generation combat aircraft are expected to operate over extended flight envelopes, including flight at high flow angles and rapid maneuvers. Conditions beyond traditional limits are giving rise to nonlinear phenomena, such as flow separation, large scale energetic vortices, fluctuations etc. These phenomena have significant impact on...

Surrogate models are used to approximate the expensive ‘true’ simulation codes and thus have the potential to speed up the wind farm layout optimisation problem (WFLOP). One technique to make surrogate models is Polynomial Chaos Expansion (PCE). PCE can approximate a (wind farm) model by using orthogonal polynomials which are constructed based...
