Dit project behandelt de programmering en toepassing van een taxiservice, waarbij de passagiers zich vanaf of naar het treinstation willen verplaatsen. Met behulp van geheeltallig lineair programmeren wordt bepaald welke ritten door de taxi's moeten worden gereden, om de winst te maximaliseren. Dit model is gebaseerd op het model wat beschreven...

The development of dredging as a major player for surface mine applications has led Royal IHC, a large equipment supplier and consultant for dredging and mining operations, and the TU Delft to work on more advanced optimizations techniques for the design of dredge mines. Three implications of the design of a dredge mine were found to be crucial...

In this thesis, we take a look at the Asymmetrical Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem (ACVRP). We will take a look at different possible formulations for the problem and choose one based on the ease of implementation, the computation speed of solving it, and the available relaxations. The problem, and its relaxations, will be modeled and solved...

The logistics industry is being modernized using information technology and robots. This change encompasses a new set of challenges in warehouses. Recently, some companies have started using robot fleets to sort products and parcels. This thesis studies those systems, and researches the combinatorial problems that arise within them. Three main...

The timetabling problem is known as a large class of problems that fall under the mathematical field of scheduling. A widely used method to solve timetabling problems is the integer linear programming method, which we have used to solve the open day timetabling problem. In this thesis we have addressed a timetabling problem for the open day at...

In this research we study some online learning algorithms in the online convex optimization framework. Online learning algorithms make sequential decisions where there is no information about the future events in time. To measure the success of a decision there is a (bounded) cost for each decision, which is revealed after every time step. The...

The main goal of any launch vehicle is to bring as much payload to space as possible. Space planes have been studied for decades, as they are thought to be more cost effective for frequent access to space than traditional expendable launchers. This research aims at optimizing the payload capacity of a single stage to orbit (SSTO) horizontal take...

A powerful combination of simulation and optimization has been successfully applied to solve real-world decision making problems (Fu et al., 2000; Fu, Glover, & April, 2005). Unfortunately, there are scientific and application problems with this method. Firstly, there is no transparent and formal structure to define the integration between...

In industrial environments robots are used for various tasks. At this moment it is not feasible for companies to deploy robots for productions with a limited batch size or for products with large variations. The use of robots for such environments can become feasible through a new generation of robots and software which can adapt quickly to new...

In this research the role of thick flexible soles in energy-efficient humanoid walking is analyzed. It is
hypothesized that, the addition of underactuated degrees of freedom under the foot gives the robot
the potential to execute a pseudo-passive walking motion 1, which yields a decrease in ankle torque
and energy expenditure....

Recently, the effects of quantization on the Primal-Dual Method of Multipliers were studied.
In this thesis, we have used this method as an example to further investigate the effects of quantization on distributed optimization schemes in a much broader sense. Using monotone operator theory, the effect of quantization on all distributed...

Constrained optimization is the process of optimizing an objective function with respect to some variables in the presence of constraints on those variables themselves or on some function of those variables. This thesis focused on using the Ensemble Optimization method to improve the NPV (Net Present Value) as the objective function of...

Optimization in engineering could and should be used for more than just optimizing performance of mechanisms. In a world with growing environmental pressure and increasing scarcity of materials, thinking about how we could make better use of materials becomes more and more important. This is where optimization could be used to make sure...

A hybrid propulsion system features both a diesel engine and an electric motor for propulsion. The degrees of freedom with power generation raise the question how this division between power can be optimised in such a way that the engines are running with their optimal fuel efficiency. A generalised method to determine the power generation for...

Design of a sun shading system which is optimized to generate as much energy as possible. This has been done by calculating the optimal size and positioning of the slats. The user also played a central role in the design process. Not only the design of the slats is innovative, also the way they are connected to the glass facade. This is done by...

Runway capacity of a complex runways system can be limited by several factors. Currently, the runway usage at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS) is described by a preference list established by multiple stakeholders. It makes an important trade-off between minimizing noise exposure to the environment and maximizing capacity. The existing model...

Decisions made in the early stage of the design process can have huge impacts on the future performance of a building. The implementation of natural ventilation strategies should occur early in the design stages and it should be embedded into a multi-criteria optimization process in order to achieve low energy performance and indoor comfort.

KLM Cargo transports freight by truck from European outstations to the Schiphol Hub. This freight is transported palletized. It is unexplored what the impact on the KPI’s of KLM Cargo is of changing pallet composition or the transportation method (palletized vs. Loose) of this export freight flow. The objective of this research is to provide...
