Introduction. Increased joint resistance to imposed movement (“muscle hypertonia”) is a common finding in patients with an upper motor neuron syndrome, following stroke. Contributors to muscle hypertonia are of neural (increased reflex activity) and non-neural (altered visco-elastic properties) nature. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy ...

There are many environmental and industrial contexts with dense particle laden flows. In the literature several numerical and experimental studies have been performed to understand the effects of the particles on the mean flow. Many are the cases where these effects can be modelled by an effective suspension viscosity associated with an increase...

Cutter suction dredgers are a type of hydraulic dredgers often used in areas with hard soil where other types of dredging vessels would be ineffective. As a result of the wide range of type of soil that is being cut a lot of variation is seen in the power demand on the cutter suction dredger's diesel-electric power generation system....

This master thesis project describes the process of the designing of a model that offers a way to improve the acceptation of insects as ingredients.
The final designs show an answer to the assignment: a product or product service combination, which contributes to increasing (multi contextual) insect consumption by improving the acceptation ...

With the arrival of smart electricity meters energy consumption can be monitored continuously and displayed on external devices such as phones or tablets. As a consequence, users become more aware of their energy usage which may result in a reduction in energy consumption. Nevertheless, many countries in Europe still use an analog electricity...

Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is the accelerated process of intervertebral disc decay (decrease of disc thickness, enhanced cell death, ECM damage and collagen loss etc.), accompanied with pain, as well as structural and functional failure. So far, there are no therapies that can inhibit or even reverse the degenerative progress of this...

The electrical properties of a widely used stress control tube for medium voltage heat-shrink joints are examined in this master thesis by using non-destructive laboratory methods. They were determined by use of time domain dielectric response test while changing the DC electric field, temperature and level of humidity.

In order to...

Nowadays in large-scale process industry, high purity of products is not only desired but crucial. Products must meet high-purity standards to conform with market and customers’ requirements. Two chemical processes, reaction and distillation, are essential to achieve these objectives. To overcome certain disadvantages and/or limitations that...

Visual evoked potentials, i.e responses to visual stimulation as recorded using electroencephalography have indicated the existence of nonlinear behavior of the visual pathway. Nonlinearities and time delay in the visual system play an important role in understanding the complex nature of the visual system. This study investigated the nonlinear...

European countries are showing their willingness to reduce their greenhouse gases emissions in the coming years. For example, the Paris agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is one of the most crucial steps that countries have signed recently. The aim is to cause a lower global temperature increase,...

The European Union is exploring the possibilities of blockchain for their services and processes as a bottom-up approach to the coordination of citizens and economic administrators. However, the multi-actor complexity and the systems complexity of blockchain technology makes decision-making in this subject a difficult task, resulting in a...

Risk based economic optimisation of water safety measures is presently being implemented in the more developed countries, but offers potential for developing countries too. With a limited budget, every penny needs to be well spent. It is however questionable if this method fits the circumstances in developing countries. Sufficient data is needed...

Nowadays, by using the new ICT technologies the functional efficiency of the Smart Grid is increased but at the same time leads to a more vulnerable system and makes the Smart Grid a potential target for cyber-attacks. In fact, cyber-attacks are becoming one of the most serious threats in critical infrastructures. More than 80% of energy...

Research has shown the Circumferentially Notched Tensile (CNT) Specimen to potentially be a size-independent fracture toughness specimen. This research focusses on expanding the practical applicability of the CNT specimen as well as using it to perform fracture toughness tests on S690QT steel and simulated CGHAZ material in S690.
Based on...

This graduation project focuses on separation anxiety in dogs, a condition which causes distress for both the dog and its owner and can lead to a decision for relinquishing or euthanizing the dog. From the existing literature it was found that one of possible reasons dogs have this problem is excessive dependence on the owner. Therefore the goal...

Architectural engineering is evolving from a traditional craftsmanship to a new digital craftsmanship. Through advancements in production and processing techniques, we can achieve both mass production and offer mass customisation. As for the typology shown below, a simple house [1] & [2], the source of the material did not alter. The...
