This graduation project has been carried out in the context of the research project ‘Tailored Healthcare through Customer Profiling’ at the TU Delft, in collaboration with hospital Reinier de Graaf Group in Delft, and medical device company Zimmer Biomet. Together we focus in this project on the rehabilitation journey after total hip replacement...

In the year 2050, global anthropogenic radiative forcing from aircraft emissions are projected to increase significantly. Recent studies have considered climate optimized flight trajectories to be a promising measure to mitigate non-CO2 emissions’ environmental impact, which is highly sensitive to locus and time of emissions. Estimating the...

This thesis gathers, develops and evaluates several characterizations of multivariate tail dependence. It is established that the stable tail dependence function (STDF) is a suitable copula-based dependence function that fully captures the multivariate extremal dependence structure in all dimensions d≥2 and can be used to visualize the tail...

Since the industrial revolution the use of fossil fuels has increased exponentially, this increase caused a higher concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is responsible for climate change. To prevent a large-scale change of the earth’s climate humanity needs to switch to renewable energy sources. A large drawback of current...

Lithium ion batteries are currently the most attractive choice for mobile energy storage and power sources [4] in terms of energy density. However, it is unlikely that current battery chemistries will reach the energy density desired for future applications [8]. Li-metal, which has the highest reduction potential of all metals and the highest...

The number of Internet of Things devices, small low-powered devices with internet connectivity, is undergoing strong growth. As connected devices become the standard, more types of devices are connected to home networks and made accessible from the Internet for convenience. As IoT devices are widely deployed in mass numbers, they can be easily...

Monopiles will be installed in more difficult terrain since space in the 'ideal' locations is reduced by the rapidly increasing development of wind farms in the ideal areas. In difficult terrain, the amount of obstacles or hard layers increase, leading to an increased risk of pile tip damage. Also the ever increasing D/t ratio of the pile leads...

This work describes a low-power and low-cost alternative to mechanical wind sensors, suitable for volume production in standard CMOS processes. The CMOS wind sensor operates in the electro-thermal domain; therefore, it has no moving parts and therefore requires very little maintenance. Moreover, the CMOS wind sensor is an active sensor, compared...

Fog harvesting is a sustainable drinking water solution for arid climates. Previous studies have developed an analytical model to predict the fog water collection efficiency as a product of aerodynamic and deposition efficiency as independent factors. In this study, we tested the assumption that deposition efficiency stays unchanged when the...

Micro-ramps are passive flow control devices used to delay flow separation. Their use is widespread due to their reduced drag and structural robustness. We reproduce with Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) recent Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) experiments of the micro-ramp flow performed at TU Delft to study the wake of a micro-ramp immersed...

In 2011 a relatively new type of numerical scheme has been introduced: Active Flux schemes. In this type of scheme an extra degree of freedom is added to the cell interfaces of a regular finite volume grid. This enables the use of non-conservative update methods for these additional variables, as conservation is automatically adhered to by the...

As acquiring design thinking by organizations become a lighthouse for long-term competitive advantage for some, its adoption becomes more important. Companies on this journey face different types of resistance and challenges laid out in this thesis. As networks offer a different context and opportunities for learning, this thesis tries to answer...

The National Immunisation Programme (NIP) provides Dutch children with vaccinations for twelve infectious diseases free of charge and on voluntary basis. During several years, the vaccination coverage in the Netherlands has declined (about 0.5 percent per year). It is important to have a high vaccination coverage in order to stop spreading...

This report aims to evaluate the feasibility of a small pilot plant placed near Broome, Australia to produce 3 tons of hydrogen per day using photovoltaic (PV) energy. Using PVsyst, a PV modelling software, the maximum power operating points were determined for a test layout. This was then transformed to other layouts which allowed the optimum...

Rare category detection is the task of discovering rare classes in unlabelled and imbalanced datasets. Existing algorithms focus almost exclusively on static data in which instances are assumed to be independent. In this thesis we propose an algorithm that is designed for temporal data. Specifically, we are interested in data with temporal...

An ice rink building can be described as an active machine. It needs electric energy to fulfill its purpose: to provide artificial ice to - initially - extend the ice skating season.
Nowadays the need of artificial ice has increased, since the oppurtunity to practice the ice skating sport outside with natural circumstances ceased to exist....

Tilt-rotor aircraft combine the helicopter’s benefit of VTOL capability and the flight performance that turboprops possess on range, speed and endurance. Tilt-rotor aircraft have the potential to decrease airport congestion and average flight delay in passenger transportation, while benefits are numerous in i.e. search and rescue, disaster...
