This research aims to gain a deeper understanding on the financial, legal, organisational and technical considerations regarding the application of product-service systems. The goal is to identify how these characteristics could be implemented in project delivery methods to contribute to a circular economy. This design-based research is carried...

Self-driving cars is considered the next major step in the automotive industry and with automation in passenger vehicles, the driver can benefit from the freed up time for leisure or work, as he or she becomes the passenger. However, this is only possible if the drivers are comfortable during automated driving. The major issue here, is that the...

Space mission design is an activity that deals with a highly complex, non-linear system of which the requirements and characteristics are subject to regular change. This has consequences on the mathematical design but also the translation to hardware. In this thesis, we explore the use of Integrated Mission Design (IMD); a data-driven design...

The development of automated vehicles offers advantages for the transportation systems of the future. As a result, new and unknown challenges within the field of transportation arise. Moreover, there are uncertainties within the behavioural responses of travellers and amongst other things, the changes in the modal split within the transportation...

If weather conditions become rough, vessel motions with an increased amplitude are excited due to the presence of waves. The sagbend region of a suspended pipeline catenary may experience high loads due to these motions. When the loads become too high, the pipeline integrity cannot be guaranteed. In such case, the pipeline is lowered to the...

Due to the growing amount of air traveller in the coming decades, there is an increasing interest to improve the experience of the passengers. Especially travelling with hold-luggage is a big pain point and stress factor for passengers’. A new way of looking at this problem is providing a baggage pick-up and delivery service by independent...

Recent advances in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision have been showed to be promising for automated land use classification of remotely sensed data. However, current state-of-the-art per-pixel segmentation networks fail to accurately capture geometrical and topological properties on land use segmentation, as these methods have...

As a nonlinear alternative to the linear interpretation of arterial blood pressure waveform, soliton theory has been proposed to model arterial blood pressure by interpreting the pulsatile nature of pressure pulses in the viewpoint of soliton transmission. The existing solitary wave literature supports this interpretation by deriving Korteweg-de...

In this thesis, we investigate a sparse basis for ultrasound images, so that we can use sparse regularization in imaging. Actually, there are few previous researches explicitly demonstrating that medical ultrasound images can be sparsified for some dictionary. We consider various orthogonal transforms such as wavelet transforms, cosine...

During the last decades, large deployable structures are starting to be seen as a plausible configuration to multiple space missions, such as solar sailing, LEO (Low Earth Orbit) deorbiting missions or solar power generation. Technological advances in key areas, such as thin film solar cells or new deployment methods, as well as the...

99.94% of scientists believe in the effect of CO2 emissions on climate change. To tackle this, many parts of society must become sustainable. In Dutch road projects this drive for a sustainable transition is noticed in the last few years. Currently, the actions for climate inclusive road projects have not been successful. Climate consideration...

All over the world, coastal protection measures are taken, which can be soft (e.g. sand nourishments on sandy beaches) or hard (e.g. seadikes or seawalls). Special care has to be taken to design the transition between these hard and soft flood defences, as they are often vulnerable components of a coastal defence system. This study therefore...

'De Slufter' is a nature conservation area located in the Northwest of the Dutch Wadden island Texel which is inundated with seawater during storm events. The landward side of De Slufter is a sand dike which is part of the primary coastal defence ring of the island. HHNK, which is responsible for the coastal safety of Texel, currently relocates...

The worldwide gas emissions regulations are getting more stringent. Together with the fluctuations of the finite fuel resources, it is expected that the use of unconventional and renewable fuels will increase. Hydrogen fuel is a zero-emission, renewable energy source. It has a great potential as one of the principal sustainable energy sources of...

The starting point of this thesis lies in the area on Groningen, Netherlands. More specifically, induced earthquake activity is observed in this area due to gas extraction activities, which reduce underground gas pressure. In combination with the location’s geomorphology, liquefaction can occur due to earthquake excitations. Furthermore, the...

SummaryIntroductionAdditive Manufacturing (AM) offers potential to add value in terms of storage, localised production, production rate, weight reduction, customization and offers complexity for free. Within the Maritime Construction Sector (MCS) business models for AM are difficult to obtain due to its relatively large objects and the...

At present, commercially available wearable sensors are only capable of tracking an individual’s physical activities and vital signs (such as heart rate). However, these devices fail to provide insight into fatigue itself. Fatigue is a broad term with many meanings. Fatigue in this paper refers to physiological changes where the muscle becomes...

Even if renewable energy generation is improving and diffusing rapidly, reliable energy access is still a major issue for a consistent part of the global population, with more than 1 billion people still lacking energy access globally. The vast majority of this share of population is living in remote rural areas of developing countries,...

In the upcoming years, en route airspace capacity will be limited by air traffic controller workload, requiring the introduction of automation to assist controllers with conflict detection and resolution. However, acceptance is considered to be one of the main obstacles in the introduction of novel automation. Individual-sensitive automation has...
