The worldwide gas emissions regulations are getting more stringent. Together with the fluctuations of the finite fuel resources, it is expected that the use of unconventional and renewable fuels will increase. Hydrogen fuel is a zero-emission, renewable energy source. It has a great potential as one of the principal sustainable energy sources of...

Current yard crane models used for studies on various logistic processes in container terminals involving automated yard cranes do not take automation systems into account. The operational container handling performance of automated yard cranes are therefore inaccurately predicted by current models. To avoid logistical problems and financial...

Venture capital (VC) and startups are a natural duo. While startups create disruptive and incremental innovations with their technical and creative expertise, many lack the financial resources to grow their company. VC funds provide this needed finance – in addition to business acumen – in exchange for an equity...

The Netherlands aims for a circular economy by 2050. One of the major challenges is using waste as a resource. Midwaste, a cooperative association that manages waste streams and covers around 130 municipalities for the plastic waste dossier, is contributing in working towards a circular economy. As the client of this project, it requested...

In a world where the awareness of global warming and climate change increases, the shift towards sustainable energy is essential. In the upcoming years, an increasing number of offshore wind farms is expected. Over the past years, all the 'best spots' are taken and the new locations in tougher soil conditions or even rock have to be overcome....

Within the field of construction management & engineering are upcoming cities investigated on how they achieved economic development and how they increased the quality of life by using the phenomena of city branding as development tool. By doing so (city branding), cities hope to get a better position on the global market to attract...

Airborne Wind Energy is a technology where wind energy is harvested with tethered flying devices. Kitepower uses flexible leading edge inflatable kites, but these have a scaling disadvantage in that they become heavier with size. A single skin kite has the potential of negating this disadvantage while at the same time being more aerodynamically...

This thesis describes the design process of a service/tool for the management and prevention of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) cases. PJI is a complication that follows total joint replacement and is devastating for the patient. It causes physical and mental strain and the patient's health never returns to close to what it was prior to the...

Synchronization between muscles caused by shared neural input has been proposed to have a functional significance in muscle coordination. In this study, intermuscular coherence (IMC), a measure of shared neural input to muscles, was used to explore the neural underpinnings of proximal arm muscle coordination in force- and myoelectric-control...

Wing-in-ground (hereafter referred to as WIG) vehicles operate a few meters above water. The vehicles make use of the ground-effect (an effect where the drag is reduced, and the wings of the vehicles generate an increased lift). The unique speed and distance range of a WIG vehicle — a vehicle that, in functionality and appearance, sits somewhere...

Engineering fields such as aerospace rely heavily on the Finite Element Method (FEM) as a modelling tool. In combination with the scale and complexity of the structures typically involved here, computational cost remains a traditional issue. To perform FEM analyses of such structures efficiently nonetheless, engineers rely on techniques such as...

The transport sector is making a significant contribution to the global CO2 emissions causing Global Warming. A large portion of this is caused by heavy-duty vehicles like tractor semi-trailer combinations. Since tractor semi-trailer combinations are often operated at relatively high speeds for long periods of time their fuel consumption, and...

With the rising global pollution and rising concern over sustainable operations, manufacturing companies are under tremendous pressure from its stakeholders to adopt Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM). However, companies in addressing SSCM, largely focus on the economic aspects neglecting the other two crucial pillars of sustainability....

This thesis studies the radiation dose deposited on a 6U CubeSat in interplanetary orbit. The European Space Agency’s radiation data tool SPENVIS has been used to determine the proton flux in interplanetary space during a solar particle event which occurs only once every one hundred years. SPENVIS has further been applied to obtain a dose depth...

Mechatronic embedded control systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated and computationally demanding. These systems typically consists of multiple controllers, which coordinate the actuators and apply feedback based on data collected by sensors. Often the underlying control strategy is entirely described in a software application, which...

This thesis proposes two methods two solve the challenge of communication between manned and unmannd vessels. The first solution is to avoid communication by staying well clear. The second solution is to develop a protocol based on existing systems and protocols, to facilitate communication between manned and unmanned vessels.

In recent years the awareness and the effort to reduce air pollution and global warming have increased. Many new ideas are being developed to reduce harmful emissions. Despite this, the shipping industry is still a large contributor to air pollution worldwide. To reduce the environmental impact of shipping, the use of
sustainable energy...

The continuous pursuit of reducing drag in many speed sports, such as cycling and ice-skating, demands novel approaches to gain further insight into flow phenomena around athletes. In recent years, the Ring of Fire measurement technique has emerged as a feasible option to visualise and analyse flow structures of transiting objects based on...

In the last two decades, the global economy and population have been growing steadily. Due to these global trends the demand for dredging, trenching and deep sea mining activities have grown dramatically. In these engineering practices, underwater excavation is one of the major procedures which involves complicated physics. In dredging,...
