Tank containers are intermodal containers for the transport of liquids, gases, and powders as bulk cargo However, hazardous vibration during transportation would generate fatigue damage at discharge area. This thesis aims at calculating fatigue damage at discharge area of a specified tank container.

The calculation is performed in time...

For space exploration, reducing the size of landing ellipses, increases the access to areas of scientific interest. This can be achieved with improved GNC systems. Since the exclusive use of IMUs is insufficient for Pinpoint Landing, optical navigation is being explored as a solution.

The method developed in this work is based on image...

We investigate the use of relaxed decision diagrams for obtaining lower bounds on multi-machine scheduling problems. The type of scheduling problem we consider models a railway service site where maintenance jobs are performed, but is sufficiently general to potentially have wider applicability.
We find that our decision diagram formulation...

Concentrated solar technologies have been successfully used to collect solar irradiance and transform it into useful heat for electricity generation. A problem in these systems is often that a mismatch between input and output is present due to variable solar irradiance and energy demand. To compensate for this mismatch storage is utilized to...

Composite delamination represents one of the most critical failure mechanisms occurring in composite structures. In case complex structures are being designed, numerical methods need to be employed. One of the methods to numerically simulate delamination in a Finite Element environment is through the employment of the Cohesive Elements, which...

This master thesis was executed for Mercedes-Benz; a subsidiary of Daimler AG. Its goal was to design a holistic interior concept for level 4 premium autonomous driving, aimed at:‘’Purpose-driven people, expressing confidence in their success, who reluctantly accept novelty framed by tradition’’, using a context based design approach. In the...

Wind turbine (WT) gear boxes are prone to failure well below the expected 20 years’ lifetime of a WT. It has been identified that most of the failures observed are due to white etch crack flaking. Although this type of failure has been intensely studied, the underlying mechanisms have not been identified; however, recent advances have shown that...

The global fuel consumption by Heavy duty vehicles is an important issue in every climate change summit. Aerodynamic drag consumes majority of fuel at highway speeds. Thus, it is important to strive hard to reduce drag using different techniques. WABCO's SideWing (side-skirt) is an air dam (aerodynamic device) placed along the sides of the...

Globally seen, two trends are noticed that threaten the quality of the living environment in cities. First of all, a strong urbanization trend is seen. Secondly, cities have to deal with increasing climate changes. These two trends lead to the development of new policies with the aim to sustain the liveability of city centres by making...

Growing markets for sustainable technologies such as solar panels, wind turbines, and electric cars require an enormous amount of raw materials that might not be available from sources on land. Exploitation of seafloor mineral resources could secure the supply of raw materials for the future. However, proposed deep-sea mining (DSM) systems will...

Electroluminescence (EL) is a phenomenon of light emission from phosphor material when it is exposed to a strong electric field. In practice, EL lamps can be fabricated easily with screen printing method - depositing layers of inks on top of each other, with customized patterns possible. EL can be seamlessly embedded on various substrate...

The XblocPlus is a new type of single layer armour unit for breakwaters. The key difference between earlier single layer armour units is that the unit is not only placed in a regular grid, but also with a regular orientation. The main benefit of this is that it can directly be seen whether the unit is placed correctly. Additionally,...

Decentralised air traffic control shifts decision making to a local level, allowing decentralised controllers to focus on solving local conflicts. Since decentralised controllers have accurate local information at their disposal, they can adapt quicker and more efficiently to changing conditions. Consequently, it is suggested that the dynamics...

Current flight control systems fail to recover to safe flight conditions in off-nominal flight conditions and require a more advanced upset recovery methodology which is able to provide full control authority. Existing upset recovery methods are focused on fast recovery taking into account the current flight conditions while neglecting nonlinear...

Many cities in the Netherlands have poor areas that have to deal with a lot of social problems. One of the approaches that policymakers use to improve these areas is the so- called gentrification approach. In this approach policy makers renovate and rebuild parts of the neighborhoods in order to attract more ‘better educated’ citizens to these...
