In current practice, the feasibility of the project goal is only assessed by project owners at the start of the project, up until the final investment decision (FID) is made. The final investment decision involves the decision of the owner to continue the project into the project execution phases. After the FID is made, the project goal...

Research on laser communication technology for satellites has led to a sufficient understanding of this technology to start working on commercial applications. In this work a design is proposed for a lasercom system for CubeSats, a type of nanosatellites that is used increasingly often for commercial missions. The goal of this design is to offer...

The residential sector is responsible for over 55% of the natural gas consumption in the Netherlands. In the climate accord of Paris, the Netherlands came to an agreement with the rest of the world leaders to limit the overall temperature rise by reducing the consumption of and by switching away from carbon-based fuels. The gas mining induced...

The 'feeling' of a bicycle while riding can be described by handling qualities. This feeling is subjective and differs for every individual. In the design process of a bicycle for a specific target group with specific demands, bicycle handling qualities could be helpful. A literature study prior to this research pointed out that currently there...

The availability of low cost, efficient and wearable glucose sensors is one of the prerequisites for managing diabetes, one of the most diffuse chronic disease worldwide. Efficient monitoring of glucose levels in diabetics patients is essential to control symptoms and prevent severe complications. Starting from this principle, wet metallization...

In this thesis a model is set up to assess the economic viability of early stage buoyancy design concepts. The main research question is to find out if a versatile design approach to the buoyancy lifting concept, i.e. being able to take on multiple projects, can result in an economical viable solution for decommissioning offshore platform...

The project aims to encourage "young-older people" to age resourcefully. Although they are better at appropriating artefacts, technologies, and other people available around them to solve challenges as they age, the current "smart products" for those people do not allow them to do so because of their use scenarios rigidly prescribed. To...

Surrogate models are used to approximate the expensive ‘true’ simulation codes and thus have the potential to speed up the wind farm layout optimisation problem (WFLOP). One technique to make surrogate models is Polynomial Chaos Expansion (PCE). PCE can approximate a (wind farm) model by using orthogonal polynomials which are constructed based...

After it’s invention in 1886, the car has left us with amazing opportunities and progress. But it has become very clear that today’s degree of car use is not sustainable in terms of land and energy use and emissions. Big developments are about to shake up the automotive world, but they do not bring the change that is needed. A traffic jam of...

An offshore wind turbine requires a stable support structure to support the tower and nacelle. The support structure in the form of a monopile is lowered to the seabed and hammered in the soil. During the lowering process the monopile may show excessive motions, that occur on an irregular basis. The cause for this is unknown. This thesis is...

The rudders of moored FPSO’s are fixed in the center to avoid unwanted rudder motions. This is often done by mechanical locking of the rudder machine. Due to waves and current, the loads on the rudder are higher than expected, causing failure of the locking system. An empirical study is executed to predict the combined wave and current loads on...

This graduation project started off as an explorative project towards understanding sexuality and intimacy in later life. At first, a literature study was performed in order to set the basis for further research. A context mapping session was performed with both men and women to get a sense of the dreams and values older people have regarding...

Assignment. The Usher Syndrome is a hereditary disorder, where people's sight and hearing degenerates over time. As a result, being socially involved with other people can be challenging, especially in rooms that are low-lit and that include background noise. The project was initiated to help people with Usher Syndrome to still be able to...

Currently there are three methods of calculating the Dynamic Positioning capability of a vessel namely: static calculations, real-time time domain simulations and fast-time time domain simulations, although the outcome of the last two should be identical. In each of these methods a set of input variables is required to perform the calculations....

The Dutch dance festival market competition is ‘killing’, the market is starting to saturate. Only 20% of the festivals manage to sell out and 5% of the festivals are canceled because they failed to attract a sufficient amount of visitors. Organizations compete on prize with early bird tickets, sold early in the pre-sale...
