The introduction of Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) is set to change the operation on all levels of Air Traffic Control (ATC), including aerodrome control. Here, adherence to a planned four-dimensional trajectory is important to achieve a stable operation. At the same time, this concept provides possibilities for support tools to be used in...

We consider a maintenance service provider that services geographically dispersed customers with its local service engineers. Traditionally, when a system failure is reported, a service engineer makes a diagnostic visit to the customer's location to perform corrective maintenance. If spare parts are required, they are ordered and a second...

Unappreciated by the public, and ambiguous with its history, Brutalism has its followers, among designers and architects yet it is still a stylistic outcast. La tour de Droixhe, the high-rise at hand, thus, is seen not only as heritage but also as a lonely giant towering over the city of Liège, Belgium. This brutalist social housing development...

This year‘s graduation studio of Interiors Building Cities focuses on the redevelopment of the M HKA (Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen) in Belgium. In the context of an industrial metropolis like Antwerp, museums have evolved from spaces of representation and power structures to spaces for critique. Artists have repurposed disused...

The overall competitiveness of offshore wind turbine towers is significantly influenced by the selection of the connection. The following three types of connections: a conventional bolted ring flange (RF) connection, ring flange connection with defined contact surfaces (RFD), and C1 wedge connection (C1-WC) are considered. A quantitative...

Nowadays many companies still conceive their logistic operations as a simple material replenishment of the production plants and do not invest money and time in projects to structure their Supply Chain and bring more eciency to the production process. In addition, the high complexity of the automotive industry and the emerging uncertainties that...

Due to the growing quest for renewable energy, wind turbines grow in size. This means that higher demands are posed on the transporting structures, also called tower grillages, which brings its challenges for their design. The fact that the structures considered in this thesis are placed on a ship makes the design even more complicated....

Wrzosek, Filip (author)
A series of critical transmission lattice towers failures due to severe ice and wind loads forced German utility companies to reassess the structural stability of their power grid infrastructure. During the structural reassessment process, a problem related to an outdated or even missing documentation of the in-use infrastructure occurred. This...

Observing vegetation water dynamics from space offers insights into plant-water relations and water and carbon fluxes across ecosystems at local to global scales. A promising technique to observe water in the vegetation layer is radar, an active form of microwave remote sensing. Interactions between microwaves and vegetation material depend on...

During the 1950s and 1960s, Luxembourg underwent a major economic-political transformation that allowed the country to position itself as an internationally recognised financial hub and centre for European affairs. The degree of influence that this economic- political evolution of Luxembourg had on the architectural and urban development of...

The current trend in the evolution of wind turbines is to increase their rotor size in order to capture more power. This leads to taller, slender and more flexible towers, which thus experience higher dynamical loads due to the turbine rotation and environmental factors. It is hence compelling to deploy advanced control methods that can...

The ever-increasing power capacities of wind turbines promote the use of tall and slender turbine towers. This poses a challenge from a fatigue loading perspective by the relocation of the first and lightly-damped tower side-side natural frequency into the turbine operating regime, promoting its excitation during nominal operation. The...

The objective of the thesis was to evaluate the cost reductions and tower design when production costs are included in the design process of an offshore wind turbine tower. First, a tower cost model had to be developed. Then, based on the findings, a cost optimization model was built with the tower design software from Siemens Gamesa Renewable...

A reverse osmosis (RO) membrane followed by a packed tower aerator and rapid sand filter are used by an agricultural company in Emmen to treat brackish groundwater to supply water for growing crops and cleaning purposes. The iron removal by the treatment plant is sufficient most of the time throughout the year. However, the farmer periodically ...

On June 14 in 2017, 72 people lost their lives and hundreds of families were left homeless as the Grenfell tower block caught fire in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea within the inner-city of London. The tragedy has shaken the society, highlighting the conflict between privileged and unprivileged within the city’s society, as most of...

Ruiterkamp, Gilian (author)
In recent years wind turbines have become increasingly large to increase energy yield and cost-effectiveness. This has led to taller turbine towers, subjected to larger loads. As a result, Lagerwey turbines experience lateral tower vibrations at different resonance frequencies. These vibrations result in rotor speed measurement disturbances due...

Global hydrological models (GHMs) have become an increasingly valuable tool in a range of global impact studies related to water resources. However, glacier parameterization is often overly simplistic or non-existent in GHMs. The representation of glacier dynamics and evolution, including related products such as glacier runoff, can be improved...

The expected increase in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) traffic in European airspace raises concerns regarding the human factors of tower controllers. Dynamic geofences offer tower control a means to safely separate UAVs from manned traffic, without direct interactions with individual UAVs. A preliminary support interface was designed, supporting...

Churches are part of heritage structures that take an important role in Europe ́s cultural identity. As such, these structures must be protected to prevent catastrophic collapse and any damage must be reported timely to establish planning to maintenance and restoration. This can be achievable when the churches are monitored periodically with...

Temperature change over the length of heat exchangers might be an important factor affect-ing biofouling. This research aimed at assessing the impact of temperature on biofilm accumulation and composition with respect to bacterial community and extracellular polymeric substances. Two identical laboratory-scale plate heat exchanger modules...
