This project proposes and evaluates a novel concept for an airspeed instrument aimed at small hybrid unmanned aerial vehicles. The working principle is to relate the power spectra of the wall-pressure fluctuations beneath the turbulent boundary layer formed over the vehicle’s body to its airspeed. The instrument consists of two microphones,...

Spiking Neural Networks(SNN) have been widely leveraged by neuromorphic systems due to their ability to closely mimic biological neural behavior, where information is exchanged and received between neurons in the form of sparse events(spikes). Such neuromorphic systems are highly energy-efficient because the use of a global clock can be avoided...

As architects encounter challenges when comprehending and fulfilling the requirements of users and other stakeholders involved in the<br/>architectural design project, participatory design, which involves non-architects in the design process, is perceived as one of the solutions. It is a developing practice that can lead to greater engagement of...

This graduation project arose from Erasmus MC’s mission to continuously improve the patient experience. The results of the patient monitoring by Erasmus MC showed that an intervention at their ophthalmology outpatient clinic (OOC) could contribute to this objective. The patient satisfaction scores on wait time experience were very low at this...

This research aims to improve the structural safety of wide floor slabs with openings due to embedded non-structural elements. The multidisciplinary design of these slabs has resulted in various safety issues, including errors in the design due to the absence of a calculation method and insufficient integration between designs of different...

Ranking algorithms in traditional search engines are powered by enormous training data sets that are meticulously engineered and curated by a centralized entity. Decentralized peer-to-peer (p2p) networks such as torrenting applications and Web3 protocols deliberately eschew centralized databases and computational architectures when designing...

The unique six-legged swarming rover Lunar Zebro is designed and produced by students from the Delft University of Technology. The objective of the rover is to accomplish an autonomous mission on the Lunar surface by 2024. This thesis evaluates a path planning algorithm that is designed for autonomous navigation in the Lunar environment. The...

To survive on the surface of a near atmosphere-less Mars, humans must be able to provide thermal energy to buildings to sustain temperature changes from -73°C to 20°C. The goal of the thesis is to create a passively-working thermal battery using materials currently available to humans; it must be the sole heat source to the Martian buildings....

TreeContainment is a well-known problem within phylogenetics, which asks whether a binary phylogenetic tree is embedded in a binary phylogenetic network. For this problem, Jones, Weller and van Iersel (2022) have created an algorithm that uses dynamic programming on tree-decompositions to achieve a running time that is exponential in the tree...

Given the desire to construct more structures using sustainable building materials, demand for wood and other bio-based building materials has risen dramatically over the decade. While timber itself is a carbon-neutral material and can sometimes even be carbon-negative, reusing wooden structural members made that have been in service for several...

C/C-SiC is a type of ceramic matrix composite, which consists of a silicon carbide matrix phase, combined with reinforcing carbon fibres. This material has high specific strength and stiffness, good damage tolerance, as well as excellent thermal properties. It is commonly applied in environments where these properties are utilized, such as...

This thesis aimed to study how collimation could virtually reduce the focal spot size of an existing small-animal cone beam Computed Tomography (CT) system to diminish the penumbra effect. The ever-remaining drive to improve the spatial resolution in CT for enhanced image quality introduces the need for small focal spot sizes, as the focal spot...

Traditional kinematic joints used in large scale machinery consist of multiple rigid parts in contact, which causes wear and imposes the need for lubrication and maintenance. Compliant joints have the potential to eliminate these problems as they require less maintenance. However, these joints are not studied for large scale applications with...

Pectus Excavatum (PE) is a common deformity of the thoracic wall, characterized by a depression of the sternum. In the current golden standard for surgical correction of PE, the deformity is instantaneously corrected, causing severe and prolonged post-operative pain. The goal of this study is to design and validate a novel implant to slowly...

Offshore wind is a rapidly maturing renewable energy technology and is expected to play a central role in future energy systems. It has the potential to generate more than 420,000 TWh per year worldwide, an amount approximately equal to eighteen times the global electricity demand today. While many of the most abundantly resourceful sites are at...

A Spiking neural network (SNN) is a type of artificial neural network which encodes information using spike timing, network structure, and synaptic weights to emulate the information processing function of the human brain. Within an SNN, it is always required to support the spike transmission that travels between neurons(array). This thesis aims...

The production of plastic materials has experienced incredible growth over the past decades. Polyethylene constitutes the largest part (25%) of plastic production, finding its application mostly as film in industrial and food packaging and agricultural use. However, since packaging materials are getting increasingly complex, polyethylene waste...

On a general level, the Dutch government wants to have a fully circular economy by 2050 by reducing the use of primary materials and carbon dioxide emissions. As the consideration and integration of concepts such as sustainability and circular economy are becoming increasingly popular in the civil engineering sector, it might be time to re...

Tensioned membrane structures are increasingly in demand, because of their ability to cover large spaces with minimum use of material. The material’s mechanical properties play a key role in the design of such structures. The shear behaviour is one of the main influential properties of woven textiles during complex deformations, such as the ones...
