Developments in minimally invasive surgery such as natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery and single port laparoscopic surgery have pushed medical devices to be higher articulated and more dexterous. These surgery methods have proven to greatly decrease bleeding, scar tissue, hospital time, and cost. The procedures involve the...

The aim of this project was to get a better understanding of the shape memory behaviour of 3D-printed polymers, and the different parameters which affect this, with the ultimate goal to apply shape memory in product design. This project started with a literature study on shape memory polymers and 3D-printing. The material properties, different...

The interest in shape-shifting materials has increased over the past years. A part of this field concerns the shape-shifting of sheets from flat configuration into a double curved configuration, requiring nonuniform strain among the sheet. This functionality can be used for various purposes, in different application fields. For example, shape...

Many applications of quantum communication require a high amount of entanglement between the states of two separated parties, for example quantum teleportation or superdense coding. However, when states are locally entangled and then separated, errors arise during transportation of the qubits. This results in a lower amount of entanglement...

Lacunes of presumed vascular origin (lacunes) are small lesions in the brain and are an important indicator of cerebral small vessel disease (cSVD). To gain more insight in this disease, obtaining more information about the shape, size and location of lacunes is essential. However, manual segmentation (the voxel-wise labeling of lacunes in a...

Moving towards the Dutch circularity goals of 2050, this project aims to diminish the amount of construction waste released by the demolition of 282 post-war dwellings in the Nieuwenhuysenbuurt in Amsterdam West (1954). Through the use of a flexible and demountable building system, construction waste is diminished now and in the future.

The jobs of the world population are increasingly threatened in a world filled with constant technological improvements, and automation of tasks by machinery and artificial intelligence. Substitution of labour by machines is not only occurring in blue-collar jobs (usually uniformed workers working in eg. manufacturing) but increasingly also in...

According to the World Health Organization 40 million amputees are living in developing countries1. An amputation has a great impact on the quality of life of a patient. In general, patients have limited mobility, often lack of confidence and consequently are at times excluded from participating in society2. Prosthetic rehabilitation could help...

Many coral reef islands are low-lying, which in combination with population growth, sea level rise and possibly more frequent extreme weather events is likely to result in increased coastal risk (e.g. Storlazzi et al., 2015). On smaller scales of O(10 km) wave-driven coastal inundation can be accurately predicted with advanced models such as...

This report concerned the development of a soft robotic module for a seat pan, its optimization and application. The soft robotic module has an LED and photosensors for determining the distance of indentation and the passive force created by compressing the foam spring inside. An air pressure sensor is used to determine the active force created...

Non-linear finite element analysis (NLFEA) is a powerful numerical solution method that can enhance accurate determination of the structural resistance for a more efficient design. However, the implementation of NLFEA for the design of reinforced concrete structures is lagging behind as related uncertain- ties have not been quantified adequately...

Background Upper limb prostheses help people with an upper limb deficiency in performing activities of daily living. They can be divided into two categories; body-powered and externally powered prostheses. The advantage of body-powered prostheses is that they provide feedback to the user. The advantage of externally powered prostheses is the low...

The thesis discusses how alternative heat generation for furnaces can be implemented on the Shell Netherlands Refinery to become CO2 neutral by 2050 or sooner. The research analyses the current knowledge, and future alternatives for furnace heat generation and underlines the need for alternative solutions with net-zero emission impact. Furnaces...

Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has seen a recent surge in policy uptake, but currently lacks guidance on clear institutionalisation in practice (Burget et al., 2017; Owen et al., 2021). Formal standards have tremendous potential as a possible instrument in order to meet societal challenges due to the anticipatory and inclusive nature...

Introduction In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in custom triflange acetabular components (CTAC) for revision and oncological surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the surgical accuracy of positioning CTACs in patients receiving either total hip arthroplasty (THA) revision or tumor resection surgery, using a novel 3D...

The European Union has set ambitious goals in their climate and energy framework to guide our transition to a more sustainable society. To achieve this goal, a mix of sustainable sources will have to be utilised, in which wind energy plays a crucial role. Offshore wind has been growing in popularity within this market, as the onshore market is...

The Netherlands is aiming for a circular economy. To transition to a circular economy, eco-industrial parks (EIPs) are needed. The problem is that developing EIPs is not easy. Many industrial parks aiming to become more sustainable and transform into EIPs have failed. In the Netherlands, industrial symbiosis, which is the most important aspect...

Background: The development of ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) have come a long way over the past decade. However, most improvements are mainly focused on gait performance. Hereby, other tasks are overlooked. This is also stated by AFO- users. AFO-users want an AFO that can be adjusted to suit dierent tasks. An adjustable AFO...

The erosion of the seabed in front of coastal structures induced by waves can lead to multiple types of failure instability or function of the structure. On this topic most research has been done into erosion in front of vertical structures. For sloping structures a knowledge gap exists in the understanding of the processes that lead to erosion...
