Energy harvesting has gained lots of interest over the past few decades. This study explores the application of energy harvesting in lower limb prosthetic devices. The control system of a lower limb prosthesis includes sensors, wireless<br/>systems and other active components which all require battery power. In order to save some of this battery...

Governments are looking more and more to invest in renewable energy sources due to the energy transition that is currently taking place. One of the many renewable energy sources is wind energy which is increasingly positioned at sea. Wind turbines in deep parts of the ocean can be placed on floating structures which are often moored to the sea...

In the era of advancing technology, the demand for specialized engineering materials has risen significantly. Active Mechanical Metamaterials (AMMs) offer a novel approach to engineering materials with tunable mechanical properties. This research focuses on developing tunable damping active mechanical metamaterials (AMMs) by incorporating...

Current offshore wind turbine installation and positioning methods require mechanical equipment attached on the lifted components and human intervention. The present paper studies the development of a contactless motion compensation technique by investigating a magnetically controlled pendulum. The technique involves the interaction of a...

Wheel-rail high-frequency interaction is closely related to the formation of railway short-wave defects. Finite element (FE) method has been widely used to simulate wheel-rail dynamic systems, but its validity in modelling high-frequency interaction has not been fully demonstrated in three dimensions (3D). This work aims at comprehensively...

Materials and material structures with highly specialised and unique mechanical properties are sought after in order to gain the most performance from a system. Materials generally have fixed mechanical properties and are unable to adapt in the case of new or unforeseen situations. Active mechanical metamaterials are able to alter the...

The increase of demand for offshore wind energy resulted in an increase of larger wind turbines. These turbines are often placed on top of a monopile (MP) substructure. The conventional method for installing these MPs uses a jack-up vessel. However, due to the local bathymetry and soil conditions. This method has its drawbacks, such as...

The Hierarchical Subspace Iteration Method is a novel method used to compute eigenpairs of the Laplace-Beltrami problem. It reduces the number of iterations required for convergence by restricting the problem to a smaller space and prolonging the solution as a starting point. This method has shown great performance improvements for Laplace...

Mitigation strategies which eliminate existing space debris, such as with Active Space Debris Removal (ASDR) missions, are now more important than ever regarding the ever-growing space debris population problem. One of the considered ASDR approaches uses a net as a capturing strategy. The benefits of such strategy are to allow for a large...

Vibrations have been studied in various engineering fields due to their detrimental and even destructive effects on structures. Suppressing low-frequency vibrations has been a research challenge for decades and is mostly achieved by implementing active vibration control techniques. In the last two decades, the emergence of locally resonant...

In this thesis we perform a theoretical study on the Chirality Induced Spin Selectivity effect in the context of two-terminal measurements for realistic parameters. In twoterminal measurements on chiral molecules one of the leads is magnetized and the current is measured for opposite magnetizations. In experiment it is found that the currents...

The emergence of tactile technologies has paved the way for addressing various challenges. Tactile sensing is especially vital for the blind and visually impaired. This study investigates how tactile feedback can enhance mobility and independence among individuals in this community. In today’s touchscreen-dominated world, accessibility remains a...

In the evolving landscape of nuclear energy, ensuring the safety and efficiency of nuclear reactors remains paramount, particularly with the increasing demands for energy and a concurrent rise in global temperatures. A significant aspect of nuclear safety involves maintaining the integrity of the fuel rods, which are susceptible to Turbulence...

This study aims to quantify the aerodynamic behaviour of fixed pitch rotors with a diameter of 12.7 cm in axial descent, and its contribution to the attitude oscillations found for quadcopters under similar flight conditions. Wind tunnel tests are performed with an isolated rotor, as well as a complete quadcopter mounted inside a gimbal that...

Currently, the building industry contributes to up to 50% of climate change. A way to reduce the impact is by replacing current building materials with more environmentally friendly materials, such as timber. Engineered wood products, such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, have increased strength, stiffness, and stability which enables...

Fibre metal laminates (FML) were initially conceived as a hybrid material, aiming to create synergy between the impact resistance of metals and excellent fatigue resistance of fibre reinforced polymers. The purpose of this approach was to overcome the limitations of single-material structures. However, despite its considerable promise, the use...

High-tech systems are subjected to strict temperature requirements. Therefore temperature control using cooling water is vital for thermal stability. Unfortunately, components like pumps and fluid couplings generate flow disturbances, resulting in mechanical vibrations that influence the performance of the system. This research focusses on the...
