New railway bridges for high-speed trains are being built in a many countries around the world. In addition to the construction of new bridges, existing bridges are ageing. These two factors make the assessment of railway bridges essential. The bridges are designed considering certain predefined reliability criteria to account for the...

The Netherlands is often depicted as a battleground, with the Dutch in a constant struggle against the water that surrounds them. This project examines this tradition in the context of the Wadden Sea and the island of Schiermonnikoog, where this battle between the land and the sea is at its most extreme.

This project traces the myth of ...

Rock cutting is a challenging process. Heavy equipment, large cutting forces, high wear rates and large amounts of required energy are common challenges when cutting rock. Traditionally, rock cutting is based on a linear motion of the cutting tool. However, a significant improvement on the cutting performance is expected when using non-linear...

Micropropulsion is universally considered to be a key technology enabling nano- and pico- satellites to perform more complex missions. However, past research has shown that nozzle efficiencies at the microscale are far inferior to their macro scale counterparts. These low efficiencies can be attributed to the relatively high viscous losses...

Since 2011, an electronic registration system, called the OV chip card, has been in use in the Netherlands for the payment of all public transport. As a result, the Dutch Railways (NS) have implemented all the necessary equipment to support the sales and validation processes of this system. Another company (Thales, the agent) has been hired to...

Ballistic capture is a relatively novel concept in interplanetary mission design with the potential to make Mars and other targets in the Solar System more accessible. A complete end-to-end interplanetary mission from an Earth-bound orbit to a stable science orbit around Mars (in this case, an areostationary orbit) has been conducted using this...

The beginning of the millenium has initiated the transformation of the space market to a globally private space industry, distinguished by relatively young and commercially minded aerospace businesses, which is known as NewSpace. Airbus Defence and Space Netherlands B.V. (Airbus DS NL) aspires to anticipate on this transition and has initiated...

The Dutch government has announced that 7 million houses and 1 million buildings in the service sector need to be provided by sustainable heat in 2050 (Klimaatberaad, 2018b). This is an enormous challenge considering that over 90 percent of the houses and service sector buildings in the Netherlands are currently heated by the local combustion of...

Pilots are an important asset in the operations of airlines, as with insufficient pilots, an airline cannot operate the planned schedule. The long-term crew planning problem aims to optimally plan the supply and demand for pilots as well as methods and strategies for closing the gap between these. The demand is determined by the number of pilots...

From shallow to deep water, from the well to the ship, from the offshore field to shore or between countries, many kilometres of offshore pipelines for transportation of hydrocarbons (oil and gas) have been installed over the last decades. Allseas’ Tog Mor is a shallow water pipelay barge capable of laying pipes up to a water depth of 25 meters....

In this research, known theory and methods for electric networks are translated and applied to gas transport networks.

The networks are represented by directed graphs with their corresponding incidence matrices. The theory about these is extensively discussed in addition to their relevance to Kirchoff's Circuit Laws.

Several...

Organisations need to go through continuous change in order to maintain a sustainable competitive advantage. This change is often expressed in a vision which should engage and involve all stakeholders. However, implementing change successfully turns out to be a challenge since two in three change processes stall. Ink Strategy is a visual...

A lot of research has been done on the behaviour of pneumatic tyres and this has led to various tyre models and a lot of measurement data. However, in the specific field of bicycle tyres, not so much measurement data is available. However, in 2013 Andrew Dressel received the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering at the University of...

Voice user interfaces (VUI) have arrived. Worldwide, this technology is in the lift and enabling the exchange of information through voice interactions. As a result of the growing popularity of this technology, companies fanatically started with the designing of their own skills and/or actions. But although, this over-enthusiasm, leaves the ‘why...

Development of the autonomous vehicle has been a trending topic over the last few years. The automotive industry is continuously developing Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) that partially take over the driver’s workload. This has resulted in an increase in vehicle safety and a decrease in fatal crashes [1]. Full vehicle autonomy has not...

This research investigates and proposes a new method for obstacle detection and avoidance on quadrotors. One that does not require the addition of any sensors, but relies solely on measurements from the accelerometer and rotor controllers. The detection of obstacles is based on the principle that the airflow around a quadrotor changes when the...

The Deployable Space Telescope (DST) project aims at producing a competitive telescope by using segmented deployable light weighted optics which reduces launch volume and mass, and thus launch costs. Due to the criticality of heat management to the performance of the telescope, a thermal model had to be built in order to determine the expected...

This graduation project focuses on balancing entertainment and social value of football to create relatedness and belonging among the younger supporters in Arnhem and Vitesse. Relatedness and belonging are two of the thirteen fundamental needs defined by Desmet and Fokkinga (2018). Designing for fundamental needs is one of the eight approaches...

There is no doubt that the smallest spacecraft platforms (CubeSats, NanoSats and microsats) are revolutionizing the market. The possibilities of developing spacecraft through standard platforms, commercial of the shelf components and then reduced the costs of development has allowed new organizations to enter the space section. On top of that,...
