RANS equations are nowadays widely used in industry because of their affordability in terms of computational costs. They reached a high level of complexity, as they involve systems of non-linear partial differential equations. However they still lack of generality as they are based on closure coefficients determined from fundamental real flow...

European shipyards are building increasing amounts of complex ships such as off-shore, dredging or naval ships that are engineered-to-order. The block division is made when only preliminary hull structural design, functional compartments and the location of major equipment are known. The existing production scheduling optimization algorithms use...

Background: Soft-tissue grip is a challenge in minimally invasive surgery. Grasping instruments used in clinical practice require high pinch forces in order to generate sufficient grip for manipulating soft tissue without slipping.
In nature, several animals employ adhesion in order to grip on, not only hard, but also soft substrates....

Accurate cost estimations are important for ship production companies such as Royal IHC. The research discussed is based on a feasibility study for a CBR cost estimation method. The current cost estimation method at IHC is a top-down price-to-win analogy cost estimation. This method uses mainly the weight of the ship as an input variable for the...

The worldwide production of poultry meat was estimated to reach 116 million metric tons in 2016. About ten percent of all broiler-type eggs is not fertilized. After the breeding process, these unhatched eggs do not have commercial value and are destined to be destroyed. Moreover, valuable resources are wasted during incubation and the risk of...

Mobile robots need to be fully autonomous in order to perform their tasks inside their environment. To do that, robots need to have an understanding of their environment, so that they can successfully localize and navigate themselves within it. The understanding of the robots' environment is created by solving the SLAM (Simultaneous Localization...

Inner cities increasingly suffer from congestion and pollution. Besides being a nuisance, these traffic jams cost society an enormous sum of money annually (est. €3 billion in 2015). Still many businesses use unwieldy commercial vans in tiny, crowded city streets.

Urban Arrow (UA) offers slender alternatives in the form of high quality...

Electroluminescence is light emission of phosphor when it is placed in a strong electric field. This field is created by placing a dielectric (non conductive) layer between two electrodes. The field strength is affected by the voltage, distance between electrodes and the dielectric properties of the dielectric layer.
Current do-it-yourself ...

The performance of the logistical process from the flower auction at Royal FloraHolland is under pressure. Due to decreased transaction sizes more handling is required to process the same volume and this results in lower performance. The information system used to coordinate the process is based on a fixed relation between auction and...

3D pen functions similarly to 3D printers or glue gun. It quickly melts and cools coloured plastic to create rigid and freestanding structures, which is potential to be a perfect tool for architects, designers and all the creative experimenters. The project aimed to redesign the 3D pen that optimise the experience of creating three dimensional...

There lies an opportunity for significant cost savings in the installation of subsea cables in offshore wind farms which is why the current work proposes a state-of-the-art method for monitoring the cable during installation. The proposed method enables offshore crew to look through the water with the use of augmented reality. To this end a real...

The topic which is considered in this thesis is: understanding the influence of beach morphology on the alongshore variance in wave run-up on an intermediate reflective beach, considering bars and cusps. The focus of this thesis is laid inside the swash zone, in which the water motion is present of waves that run up and run down on a beach....

For decades crane standards are used to assess crane fatigue making use of a static method in combination with factors to take dynamic load effects into account. This is not sufficient to make more accurate predictions. The proposed method benefits from state of the art Multibody Dynamics simulation tool Msc ADAMS and Finite Element software...

UAVs(Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) have gained popularity in various fields, and many applications require the drones to perform tasks in indoor environments. One major challenge in UAV indoor guidance is the absence of accurate GPS(Global Positioning System)
signals. In this work, a novel guidance method is investigated which uses a library of...

This thesis explores the nature of coastal dune behavior and the role of sediment supply in the aeolian system. The first part of the thesis conducts a data analysis based on the Dutch JARKUS dataset, which provides yearly measured profiles along the Dutch coast. A series of parameters derived from the profile measurements have been used to...
