We develop a computational method that can efficiently simulate Landau levels in quantum heterostructures, by reducing the problems dimensionality. We then apply this to a GaSb/InAs/AlSb broken gap quantum well in the trivial and inverted regimes. This heterostructure can be tuned into a 2DTI phase, and has possible applications in topological...

In-situ combustion (ISC) is an enhanced oil recovery process during which air or oxygen-enriched air is injected into a reservoir. The oil in the reservoir reacts with the oxygen and the so-called combustion front is formed and propagates through the reservoir, generating heat and flue gases. During the process, numerous chemical reactions take...

A touch table is a perfect way of collaborating within a group. It allows multiple group members to interact with an application at the same time. This in turn allows every member of the group to directly participate in the team process rather than having to send their ideas up the chain of command. An area where such an application might come...

In this report a model for the ingrowth of a prosthesis in a bone will be formulated and simulated. First an overview is given of all the biological processes that are part of this healing process and what external factors can influence this process. Then a first mathematical model is presented in which the mechanical stimuli (one of the...

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...

HTM is a major role player in the public transportation sector of the Netherlands with its tram and bus services. The company is continually working to improve their infrastructure management policies by considering aspects such as vehicle priorities, driver allocation and vehicle schedules. One obstacle in the way of HTM’s continual improvement...

In hydraulic engineering it is known that for the evaluation of the performance of a system, a probabilistic approach is preferable to a deterministic one. The essence of such a probabilistic approach is that random variability/uncertainty is explicitly taken into account. In this graduation project, this probabilistic way of looking at a system...

In the modeling of fractured reservoirs, the spatial representation plays an important role to enclose the heterogeneities present in the subsurface. The reservoir flow response obtained from simulation in time is determined by the type of method and by the scale of the representation (fine or coarse). As a deterministic model cannot capture the...

Airborne gravimetry is an important tool for the geodesy and geophysics communities. Able to provide medium to high-resolution measurements over large areas, it is the link between the low-resolution satellite measurements and expensive terrestrial campaigns, especially in remote areas. To explore the potential of airborne gravimetry, the...

The goal of this project is to develop a workforce planning tool. A workforce planning tool is a decision support system (Keen and Sol, 2008) that enables Accenture to make better informed and faster decisions about its future workforce. The workforce planning tool has been developed with a design science approach. This approach is an iterative...

The ability to simulate brain neurons in real-time using biophysically-meaningful models is a critical pre-requisite grasping human brain behavior. By simulating neurons' behavior, it is possible, for example, to reduce the need for in-vivo experimentation, to improve artificial intelligence and to replace damaged brain parts in patients. A...

Around the railway station of Schiphol, railway traffic is controlled by an automated dynamic traffic management system (DVM). This system is not optimal for the future service pattern of NS and NS Hispeed. My research explores the possibilities of a new DVM by analysing different rescheduling elements by means of microsimulations in OpenTrack.

An estimated 9 million infants are born prematurely each year in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and the leading cause of death in preterms is respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a popular treatment for RDS and has been proven to be safe, feasible, and effective for use in low- and middle-income...

Muscle spindle is an organ of proprioception that plays an important role in neuro-muscular control of the human joints. It is composed of intrafusal fibers, the mechanical properties of which determine the afferent response of the spindle. Intrafusal fibers are not homogenous: they are composed of many sarcomeres, have localized fusimotor...

The current building industry needs drastic transformation to meet new performance standards regarding energy use and indoor climate requirements. It so happens that even with new buildings, the results leave something to be desired. This Master thesis describes the specific case of an atrium in the Deltion College building. The research is...

To allow for efficient and robust gait pattern, humans instantaneously modulate their joint impedance. Lower-limb amputees and patients suffering from neurological diseases partly lack that ability. Therefore, prosthetic and rehabilitative devices have been designed to re- store and repair nominal locomotion. For bio-inspired control of these...

A large challenge for passenger airlines is the design of a profitable flight schedule, for example at Kenya Airways who operates a highly connected hub-and-spoke network. The goal of this research is create a fundamental insight into the stochastic nature of delay propagation in a passenger hub-and-spoke network which allows airlines to...

In this study, a pressure filtration model for a slurry of milk fat crystal aggregates is developed, validated and used to investigate the effect of pressure-time profiles. The model focuses on the expression step and describes oil flow locally. The filter cake is modelled as a double porous non-linear elastic medium with permeabilities...
