Introduction: In daily practice, at interventional radiology (IR), percutaneous needle placement (e.g. biopsy and ablation) is generally performed under real time guidance of morphological imaging (US or CT). However, in some cases obtaining representative specimen can be challenging causing repeated biopsies or shift to open procedures. And so...

The current owners of the Scheveningen Pier are starting to head into the second phase of their exploitation plan, which is to replace the current pier. This new pier is larger than the current pier and can exploit at a higher level. This thesis creates a design for a new Scheveningen Pier. A design method is used, which combines the engineering...

Composites are used in applications where the combination of low density and high stiffness is wanted, as can be frequently found in the aerospace industry. Within the composites family, discontinuous fiber composites (DFC) started to gain interest in the aerospace and automotive industry, due to their potential for high production rates. In...

In this thesis we will for a quantum Markov semi-group (Φt)t≥0 on a finite von Neumann algebra N with a trace τ , investigate the property of the semi-group being gradient-Sp for some p ∈ [1, ∞]. This property was introduced in [12] (see also [9]) and has been studied in [9, 10, 12] for quantum Markov semi-groups on compact...

Due to the much needed energy transition as agreed under the Paris climate agreement, it is expected that large amounts of variable renewable energy supply will be connected to the Dutch Transmission Network. Future social, economic and technological developments will determine both the amount of electrification as the central or decentral...

Biochemical reactions play a crucial role and tell us many about the behavior of the biological regulation processes . We will apply several methods of order reduction to describe the overall dynamics in a more compact way. For modelling a set of biochemical reactions is rewritten as first order differential equations. This set of first order...

On the island of Goeree-Overflakkee, local and regional municipalities, businesses and education and knowledge institutions are pursuing a pioneering project called H2GO. The H2GO project is a project that researches the role green hydrogen can fulfill in our society through eight different scalable sub-projects. One of these projects is making...

Due to neuromuscular capacity decline, sit-to-stand, an essential daily life activity, is increasingly difficult to perform for elderly. In practice, elderly frequently use compensatory arm-strategies in sit-to-stand. However, the specific advantages of these compensatory strategies are unclear. The focus of this research is to study the...

Detection of the openings in the Arctic sea ice pack, or leads, allow to sample instantaneous sea surface height (SSH) and this information is crucial for quantifying the impact of sea ice melting. It is therefore important to correctly detect as many leads as possible to obtain more SSH references. This paper studies 12 different classification...

This thesis presents the research on developing a suitable dashboard for Project ENHANCE following the design guidelines from Few and Eckerson, and the recommendations that follow from this process for dashboard design in a non-business context. Two mock-up dashboards were developed in Python, using the Dash library. this case study shows that...

The Continuous Descent Approach (CDA) offers reduced noise emissions and fuel consumption, but its main complication is the lack of predictability regarding the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA). A suggested solution is to develop a pilot support interface for the execution of a fixed flight path angle CDA for a selected ETA, with thrust not being...

Wind energy is now a popular competitor among other energy sources all around the world. The offshore wind industry has progressed in recent years, with larger wind turbines being installed in deeper oceans. The construction of such large-scale wind farms necessitates more modern foundation design technologies to increase operational safety...

Magnetocaloric heat pumps are those types of heat pumpswhich use a solidMagnetoCaloricMaterial (MCM) in place of a refrigerant to provide the work for the heat pump. MCMs are materials whose temperature changes on the application or removal of a magnetic field. This effect is known as the MagnetoCaloric Effect (MCE). Magnetocaloric heat pumps...

The ability to predict the fatigue of flood gates due to dynamic wave loading is becoming increasingly important as coasts and waterways worldwide are being reinforced to suit a changing climate. There are few comprehensive ways to do so however, which often leads to conservative estimates. This thesis presents an integral framework with which...

In the past few years, there has been much research in the field of Autonomous Vehicles (AV). If AVs are implemented in our daily lives, this could have many advantages. Before this can happen, safe driver models need to be designed which control the AVs. One technique that is suitable to create these models is Reinforcement Learning (RL). A...

2getthere specialises in autonomous people transport through their GRT vehicle, used for transporting people at the airport from the parking to the terminal to ensure the GRT can operate comfortably and safely in a mixed traffic environment. The vehicle needs to plan a smooth and collision-free path. An essential aspect of a safe path is to...

Taxi time predictions are used by air traffic controllers to optimally release aircraft from the gate such that efficiency losses due to queuing are minimized, while runway capacity is maintained. More accurate taxi times can therefore result in improved airport surface operations and reduce air traffic controller workload. This article proposes...

Bicycles connected to the internet present an opportunity for integrated accident detection and geolocation. Such a system can reduce the time it takes for help to arrive by automatically alerting predefined contacts with the location of the accident. I developed a systematic method for the practical implementation of bicycle accident detection...

This graduation project investigates the opportunities for the design of a new floorplan concept for the Flying-V aircraft. The aircraft’s unique V-shaped layout brings about limitations for how seating and other interior elements such as lavatories and galleys can be placed in the floorplan. Meaning that a different approach needs to be taken...

Due to climate change, a new water management policy is considered in the Netherlands. The shift towards greater extremes in both wet periods and dry periods requires a more dynamic policy. It is investigated what effect the placement of a permanent water barrier in the Rijnmond has on the water levels in the Rhine branches, and if this can be...
