Floating offshore solar platforms (FOSPs) are envisaged to become Ultra Large Floating Structures (ULFS) with horizontal dimensions of several kilometers. The payload of these structures comprises mainly the photovoltaic panels as well as cabling and limited electrical equipment. Thus the payload per unit area of these FOSPs is very low....

A novel technique for measuring capillary/gravity waves travelling on air/water interfaces is investigated. The main motivation is to measure the free surface deformations of an air cavity used for air lubrication of ship hulls. Due to limitations in the available techniques, two novel methods are proposed, out of which the Stereo Particle Image...

Robot Care Systems (RCS) is involved in the development of the WEpod, an autonomous shuttle which can transfer up to six people. Based on a predefined map of the environment, the shuttle is able to navigate through mixed traffic its perception sensors such as camera, radar and lidar sensors. This study is acquired in collaboration with RCS and...

TThis project started out as a quest to find a meaningful application for the electroluminescent material: a phenomenom where a plane of phosphor is lit up when an alternating current is run through it. The material has several unique properties which make it perfect for application on smart wearables:It emits light, it is paper thin, it is...

Uprising innovative technologies like blockchain and the Internet of Things are increasingly changing the energy domain. These disruptive technologies are becoming more mainstream as a result of media attention and are supported by large multinationals like Tesla and Google. This combined with the enormous CO2 emissions due to fossil fuels and...

The increase in the share of renewable energy sources in the Dutch energy mix, requires an increase in flexibility from the power consumers and producers. A key issue in the availability of wind and solar power that it is independent of the power demand. Fortunately, the liberalised power market provides a financial incentive to increase both...

Asphalt concrete stiffness is currently only determined by tests in The Netherlands. A prediction model can be useful for mix design and verification purposes. In this paper existing asphalt concrete stiffness prediction models have been analysed. A database with 7 mixes has been build to assess these models. A study was performed on the...

Lighting design is a computational expensive task, commonly done using Computer-aided design (CAD) software in a virtual scene. The designer places and tunes the virtual light sources and, yet the virtual environment is ideal for physically correct light tracing, the costly simulation might not provide the desired impression in the real scene....

An increase in air traffic demand, aging pavement infrastructure, and limited funds make pavement management decision making a difficult process. Pavement management systems (PMS) are essential for pavement management. PAVER, the most common airport pavement management system (APMS) assists pavement managers by identifying the surface condition...

Running-specific prostheses enable amputee athletes to perform at the highest level. However, current prosthesis design still impairs sprinting performance in multiple ways. An example is the constant mechanical stiffness of the prosthetic devices. The dynamic behaviour of the blade is determined by this property, but it is static and cannot...

Wearable health has become a striking area in our daily life.
Electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the biomedical signals collected by the wearable or portable devices, which is widely used in heart rate monitoring and cardiac diagnosis. However, automatic ECG signal analysis is difficult in real application because the signals are easy to be...

In the Netherlands more and more groups of volunteers are formed who collectively establish sustainable energy producing initiatives. The customer needs of these so-called sustainable energy collectives are unlike any other customer groups of distribution network operator Stedin. Their applications for grid connections often require case...

A hydrogen fuel cell scooter was tested for the first time to alternatively drive, power electric appliances (Vehicle-to-Load, V2L) and power the grid (Vehicle-to-Grid, V2G). Performance of the scooter is known to rely mainly on the fuel cell stack, and fuel cell degradation depends on the operating conditions. This study aimed to provide...

Drivers continuously adapt to the different needs and constraints in the driving scene. Literature has provided evidence for two adaptation strategies in response to an increased risk (decreasing the road width or increasing the driving speed) while lane keeping: decreasing driving speed and increasing endpoint arm stiffness. However, so far...

In this thesis, the System Dynamics (SD) model of the Full Reserve Banking (FRB) system built by Van Egmond and De Vries (2016) has been reviewed and improved. The improved model is used to see the effect of FRB system in preventing a long-lasting recession as one occurred in 2008. FRB system is a monetary reform which attempts to separate...

Over the past years, the automotive industry has seen a constantly increasing level of automation of automotive vehicles. This increasing level of automation contributes to an increasing safety in traffic and a reduction of traffic congestions due tio faster response times and higher reliability, with respect to the human driver. The automation...

To achieve the goals set in the Paris agreement, it is required to replace fossil energy by renewable energy. One source of renewable energy, also used extensively at the start of the industrial revolution, is the wind. The cost of wind energy might be reduced by building split wind turbine blades. In this thesis, three main subjects related to...
