Problem situation - Global population is expected to double its size in 2030 (EMF, 2013), so will global consumption. Resource scarcity and associated environmental impact has shown that the current way of conducting business is not sustainable (Bocken et al., 2014). A promising alternative is proposed; circular economy. This new economic system...

An increasing environmental concern and a growing interest of environmentally friendly and renewable materials is driving the growth of the bio-based composite sector. From 2010 to 2020, it is expected that the use of natural fibres as a reinforcement in composites will be doubled. Bio-based composites are already widely applied within the...

Static balancing is a technique to create static equilibrium in a mechanism for any configuration. Auxiliary links and many springs are usually added to achieve static balance for spatial parallel mechanisms. This increases inertia and complexity of the system. This paper first presents a theoretically perfect static balancing solution for a...

Future high-energy physics demands higher magnetic fields to attain higher beam energies and thus needs novel superconductingmaterials in accelerator magnet applications. Current superconductors operate in the temperature range between 1.8 and 4.2 K and attain 8 T in modern operational machines. Meanwhile, prototypes have been built to operate...

The modelling of non-gravitational forces acting on a satellite (especially a GNSS satellite) started half a century ago. Their modelling to low Earth orbiters (LEOs), however, are more recent because of the dominating atmospheric drag, the modelling of which requires the precision of recent atmospheric models. However, this is not an issue for...

Prototype single layer armour units on a breakwater slope are observed to break. To predict when breakage occurs, the objective of this research project is to obtain knowledge on, and measurements of the rocking behaviour and failure mode of single layer armour units. A single cube on a breakwater slope is subjected to investigations. An...

With increasing velocities of trains, passenger comfort starts to play a larger role in the design of railway bridges. There is little experience with the Eurocode passenger comfort criterion in the Netherlands. It is relevant for the industry to have a way to fulfil this criterion, also in an early stage of railway bridge design. A sufficiently...

In recent years the use of co-processors to accelerate specific tasks is becoming more common. To simplify the use of these accelerators in software, the OpenCL framework has been developed. This framework provides programs a cross-platform interface for using accelerators. The ?-VEX processor is a run-time reconfigurable VLIW processor. It...

Image Processing is an emerging field: every year new applications are introduced, and these are pushing the hardware requirements. This thesis looks at the design of a hardware accelerator to accelerate several filters used in Image Processing: 2D Convolution, Census Transform, and Local Binary Patterns. At Intel, these filters are used for...

Electrical machines are used more often for many applications. This has caused the number of motors and generators to rise over the years. Reliability of these machines is an increasing demand, for industry relies heavily on the use of these machines. Maintenance is the best option to ensure reliability over the lifetime of these assets....

Turbulence distances are a major design criteria in the design of new freeways and the modifications of freeways. In the Dutch freeway design guideline (NOA) turbulence distances are applied to determine the minimal distance between on-ramps and off-ramps to enter and exit the freeway, or to switch from the one freeway to the other, and lane...

In structural design there is a tendency towards more slender and challenging architectural structures. Footbridges become more slender with an increasing high ratio live load to dead weight. A consequence of this increased slenderness of footbridges in an increased susceptibility to human-induced vibrations. The evaluation of the serviceability...

Over the past years, a considerable amount of effort has been devoted to the definition and implementation of techniques for the optimization and acceleration of applications on various computing platforms. Among these techniques, the extension of a given instruction-set architecture with custom instructions has become a common approach. Custom...

Nowadays more and more slender concrete footbridges are designed. Footbridges are designed thinner to increase esthetic value, as well as incorporate sustainability and to reduce building costs, with a consequence that the eigenfrequency of the bridge can drop so low that it may fall into a range of frequencies that is susceptible to vibrations...

For the design of granular bed protections often a stability parameter is used. The stability parameter represents the forces that are acting on the stones and is used to predict the response of the bed to these forces. Existing parameters are often derived for a limited range of application. When the parameter is used outside this range, the...

This master thesis describes the dynamical behaviour of a loudspeaker woofer and the modelling of it. By the use of the knowledge gained from the model, a feedback controller is implemented in order to enhance the woofer’s performance in terms of acoustic total harmonic distortion (THD) and low frequency bandwidth. The first objective of the...

Due to advancing technology, genetic sequencing has become cheaper over the years. This has caused the demand for computational power to grow even faster than Moore's law. To remedy this problem, we analyzed low-cost hardware solutions to parallelize the computational part of the genetic sequencing. We proposed a novel method for calculating the...

With the sequencing of DNA becoming cheaper and the resulting stack of data growing bigger, there is a big challenge for both engineer and biologist. Researchers are limited by their computational power. In this thesis, first an overview of sequence alignment algorithms will be given. Then a method to store the values of the similarity score...
