Background
Current procedures for repairing damage to the articular cartilage in the ankle are not satisfying patient needs and have a minimum rehabilitation time of 4 months. The Chondro project aims to develop an all-in-one polyclinical procedure where diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation can be performed in one session reducing the...

Artificial elbow modules are used in orthoses and prostheses, whereby orthoses correct, align and support the body with skeletal or neuromuscular impairments [1]. Instead, prostheses replace missing body parts and compensate for lost functions [1]. However, most designs do not allow the natural arm swing based on their transmission design or the...

One of the key challenges of adopting cloud computing is related to trust. Trust is necessary for effective collaboration between customers and providers and reducing transaction costs, however, in practice this trust is often lacking. From the scientific literature, it becomes clear that there is still a lot of ambiguity about trust in cloud...

An active fluid heat exchanger can be controlled effectively using Peltier elements to condition the temperature of the fluid flowing through the heat exchanger. The thermal resistance of the heat exchanger can be reduced to increase the speed of controlling the fluid's temperature. Topology optimization is used in this study to find the...

Intraoperative Localization plays an important role in achieving a safe and successful resection surgery. Conventionally, Intraoperative Localization techniques rely on intraoperative imaging guidance, radioactivity guidance, and fluorescence guidance together with local markers. These techniques can assist the surgeon by accurately finding the...

In the context of the ongoing research regarding boundary layer transition, this project aims to study the effects of isolated cylindrical roughness elements on the transition from laminar to turbulent flow in a swept wing boundary layer. The project entails experimental campaigns: the 45 degrees swept wing model is placed inside the test...

Jacket support structures are a preferred solution for offshore wind turbines in deeper waters. Extensive knowledge exists in relation to its construction technique as well as its crucial components, but due to considerable cost pressure, continued optimization is essential for the future competitiveness of the concept in the offshore wind...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease, i.e. “wear and tear” arthritis. Approximately 1,2 million people were known to have the disease in the year 2015. Although most joints affected by osteoarthritis have a eminent treatment, the treatments for OA in the trapeziometacarpal joint (TMC) aren’t proven superior to one another. Because...

One of the phases of the installation of Offshore Wind Turbines is the installation of the foundation for the turbine. Herein, a monopile is one of the most frequently used foundation-types. This monopile is a high steel cylinder, over 60 meters high, which supports the wind turbine to the seabed. Currently, monopiles are lifted with large boom...

This report shows that animal glue from porcine skins can be used to make thin films with reproducible properties. It shows that the tensile strength of the film relates linearly to the bloom strength, while the stiffness remains constant for temperatures lower than the glass transition temperature. The report continues to show how Differential...

The Heineken supply chain goes from the production units, through local distribution centers, to the wholesale and retail customers in the market. Heineken Netherlands Supply is interested in bypassing the distribution center in Germany when possible. It is expected that these so-called direct deliveries have the potential to save on transport-,...

The increasing interest in solar electric propulsion techniques, that enable significant propellant mass savings for a wide class of transfers, has brought about a revolution in the approach to trajectory design and optimization, as a result of the complexity and diversity of the problem. To date, solutions of different nature exist, but...

This thesis describes an investigation at IHC Vremac, with the goal to improve the delivery performance, from 69% to 85%, focused on how IHC Vremac should manage and control their complete production process when applying Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM). First, the core concepts of QRM were investigated. If a company wants to apply QRM, they...

To understand the full impact of broadband implementation to development, investigations beyond its relationship with economic measures are needed. In this study, we particularly want to assess the impact of broadband to human development. The objective of this study is to build knowledge and insight into impact assessment in the field of human...

This thesis provided an overview of the achievable ammonium concentrations, and the energy used to achieve these concentrations, by ion exchange, electrodialysis and reverse osmosis. The need for this overview arose during research for the N2kWh project, where one step in the process focused on increasing the ammonium concentration of (anaerobic...

Fatigue is the most common source behind failures of mechanical structures. In order to study the phenomena, experiments have been performed by Lloyd's Register and other tests have been presented in literature. Performing real life fatigue experiments requires a long time, a considerable amount of money and it is size limited.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the more common clinical arrhythmias with a high morbidity and mortality. Despite this, the electrophysiological and pathological mechanisms associated with AF largely remain a mystery, encouraging the use of ever more sophisticated techniques to extract vital information for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes...

In this thesis an evaluation of the limit values which are stated in CUR 236 – Micropiles is presented. This evaluation has been done by means of a dataset. The dataset contained information on failure tests performed on four different types of micropiles, and was initially used for research on relations between logged installation aspects and...
