Anode baking is a huge part of the Aluminum industry. The quality and characteristics of the anode blocks will be formed in the anode baking furnaces. The process itself is very expensive, time consuming and ecologically unfriendly. From the other hand, anode baking process can use its own waste as a secondary fuel source. Here, by waste we mean...

In recent years, more and more medical operations are done minimally invasive. Intervention radiology is a medical specialty which uses minimally invasive techniques to diagnose, or treat diseases. Instruments like needles and catheters are used by radiologists to enter the network of veins and arteries guided by image modalities. A complex...

In modern ASML machines optical components play an important role in the lithography process. EUV light is transported from the source to wafer by reflective optics. These mirrors are subjected to large thermal loading, as a large portion of the reflected light is absorbed in the mirror structure. The portion of the absorbed light is strongly...

The phenomenon of lateral migration of neutrally buoyant rigid spheres is studied experimentally for Poiseuille Flow. The study relied on the particle migration technique to capture the distribution of particles radial position at different flow parameters. In this thesis, the varying experimental parameters are flow Reynolds number and particle...

Within the KustGenese 2.0 research project a 5Mm3 pilot nourishment is created on the ebb-tidal delta of Ameland. For this thesis I was involved in the parties; Van den Herik, the contractor who executed the work, Deltares and Rijkswaterstaat. A tool is created to quickly analyse new surveys in combination with the ships deposit data. The tool...

As ports are important infrastructure for a countries economy, ports fulfill a vital role in society. In the contemporary global environment, one is expected to adjust its business routines to meet sustainability targets. Because of their significant importance in a port governance framework, terminal operators prove an interesting unit of...

Structures have to meet a particular level of safety. Therefore, in the European design codes (Eurocodes), three reliability classes (RC) are introduced based on the potential consequence of failure of the structure. For each of the RC a maximum allowable probability of failure is introduced, corresponding to a reliability index. In recent...

The Flying V is a concept proposed and patented by Benad and Airbus Operations GmbH, which is a flying wing aircraft in the shape of the letter V. Multiple researches already showed promising results, with a 25% increased lift over drag ratio compared to conventional aircraft like the Airbus A350-900. Before research of sub-scale flight testing...

This project focuses on finding what defines an appropriate moment to notify in a smart reminder system. Specifically, the goal is to find a way in which smart reminders systems can be extended through the use of user values to ultimately provide more appropriately timed reminders. This is essential in providing software aided support. A system...

The pipeline production rate and the pipeline’s superior mechanical properties are the crucial parameters for the offshore pipe laying company. Pulling on the bead, i.e. the action of moving the pipe on the firing line to the subsequent weld stall as the vessel moves forwards allows a fast and reliable pipe welding process. During this movement,...

If brands that operate in the digital context do not start building their own front-end AI enabled channels, they risk falling behind on competition (White, Addison & Fritz, 2018). But as these (often traditional) organisations implement AI-systems in customer-facing practices, it slowly becomes the new front-office brand ambassadors of the...

The utilization of deep geothermal resources for combined heat and power generation in Germany has increased slowly but continuously during the last years. Due to the growing technical readiness, the focus is now shifting from the first proof of concepts to optimizing the performance of existing plants. One promising approach is the further...

In recent years Adaptive Critic Designs (ACDs) have been applied to adaptive flight control of uncertain, nonlinear systems. However, these algorithms often rely on representative models as they require an offline training stage. Therefore, they have limited applicability to a system for which no accurate system model is available, nor readily...

The Space@Sea platform is a sustainable offshore modular platform designed for a workspace at sea as an effort in coping up with the economic growth and allocating marine resources to more efficient uses. There are four potential applications of the platform: farming, transport & logistics hub, energy hub, and living spaces. In the case of...

This research presents an Integrated Production and Distribution Scheduling (IPDS) optimization problem in which the total transportation costs for an online grocer have to be minimized. The production refers to the preparation of orders at the production facility and the distribution is related to the transportation from the production...

A prevalent approach for learning a control policy in the model-free domain is by engaging Reinforcement Learning (RL). A well known disadvantage of RL is the necessity for extensive amounts of data for a suitable control policy. For systems that concern physical application, acquiring this vast amount of data might take an extraordinary amount...

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is a promising imaging modality in medical applications, especially for non-invasive and non-contact disease diagnosis and image-guided surgery. Encoding both spatial and spectral information, it can detect subtle changes in the biochemical and morphological properties of a tissue, revealing the early progression of a...

This research thesis aims to create a new perspective of design as an integral part of internal change communication and attempts to showcase what design can contribute to the domain of internal change communication. It follows an exploratory research approach that was driven by a research question and where a design was used as a stimulus to...

It is well known that for tall cylindrical structures under wind action, such as wind turbine towers, vortex induced vibrations (VIV) may occur. During the installation of offshore wind turbine towers there are different stages of transport where we might deal with VIV. The main objective of this thesis is to explore the possibility of modeling...

The goal of this graduation project was to develop an innovation strategy for LeasePlan in relation to mobility as a service (MaaS). Before being able to determine a feasible, viable and desirable innovation strategy a comprehensive MaaS future mobility scenario was sketched out. This scenario was based on the insights gathered from the market,...
