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...

In the 25 years of existence, the offshore wind market has developed on many aspects. Among others, the dimension of the turbines increased by a factor 15 and the distance to shore increased by a factor of 50. The developments of the offshore wind farms increase the requirements for the installation vessels and as a consequence the present day...

Vehicle automation has the potential to disrupt the status quo of urban transportation, because it adds a new mode of transportation by taking away the task of the driver. The projections of estimations of the impacts of this new technology are based on many uncertainties and are thus largely unknown. A literature review showed that a wide...

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...

Vessels are becoming more and more optimized towards their mission and an increasing amount of systems are considered during this optimization. Most of these considerations occur at an early design stage, where data is scarce and their impact is large.
This research aims to aid designers in considering this growing forest of possible system...

The growth of the offshore wind industry results in intensive usage of the sandy seabed in the North Sea, currently and in the coming decades. Large-scale bed forms are present in shallow seas with sandy beds such as the North Sea. The most dynamic bed forms are sand waves. Due to their dynamic behaviour, sand waves can interact within offshore...

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) tend to focus upon short-term profit in a crisis period, however the EU advised SMEs’ to invest in innovation and quality of products. How SMEs balance between these two contradicting strategies is seldom addressed. Therefore, this study explores how SMEs align their organization upon short term...

This research is aimed at breaking online political filter bubbles. We present a system that uses artificial intelligence and human computation to automatically collect article metadata on political content and thereby enables diverse personalization on content-serving platforms. This way, exploring alternative viewpoints could become as simple...

In this society, where where people conform to their obligations, don't take the time to dream and make those dreams reality, there is a need for voluntary courageous behavior. By viewing courage as a muscle, we can train it by gaining experience. Courage is defined as battle between someone's fear and someone's will. Fear and will are situated...

The unreinforced masonry construction of Dutch terraced houses in Groningen is prone to lateral earthquake loading. To analyse the capacity of these houses, the faculty of Civil Engineering at the TU Delft started a test campaign. In this thesis, the experimental results served as benchmarks to validate a relatively new numerical method:...

In recent years, bone tissue engineering has emerged as a promising strategy to overcome the limitations of current ‘gold standard’ treatment options for bone disorders such as bone autografts and allografts. Bone tissue engineering strategies rely on the development of a scaffold that mimics the extracellular matrix, thereby providing an...

Fast sequencing and analysis of (microorganism, plant or human) genomes will open up new vistas in fields like personalised medication, food yield and epigenetic research. Current state-of-the-art DNA pattern matching techniques use heuristic algorithms on computing clusters of CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs. With genomic data set to eclipse social and...

Increasing pressure of reducing fuel consumption has led to renewed interests in propeller propulsion devices for their high propulsive efficiency. In a propeller propulsion system, the torque applied to the propeller results in angular momentum in propeller slipstream. This angular momentum is not only a form of energy loss that does not...

Forecasting the prepayments is essential for any financial institution providing mortgages, and it is a crucial step in the hedging of the risk resulting from these unexpected cash flows. The way in which the prepayment rate is predicted impacts on the hedging strategy. For example, if the prepayment model is deterministic only the average...
