There is no doubt that the smallest spacecraft platforms (CubeSats, NanoSats and microsats) are revolutionizing the market. The possibilities of developing spacecraft through standard platforms, commercial of the shelf components and then reduced the costs of development has allowed new organizations to enter the space section. On top of that,...

Within estuaries one can often observe areas where the concentration of fine suspended sediments is higher than in the surrounding waters, called estuarine turbidity maxima (ETM). ETM play an important role in the natural and socio-economic value of estuaries. The suspended sediments can for example greatly diminish the value of the estuarine...

As innovations became the source of competitive advantage for many companies, creativity became an incredibly valued trait, sought in individuals during recruitment processes for example. Creativity can be defined as the ability to generate novel and useful idea. However, as the world saw many creative inventions resulting in harmful innovations...

The presence of a stem cell source in the epicardium that can be stimulated by exogenous delivery of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) and migrate towards the myocardium can represent a new approach to achieve cardiac repair following myocardial infarction. However, injection of drugs always requires use of carriers which help stabilize the...

In experimental aerodynamics, pressure is an important parameter which provides insight into the various features of the flow around the test object. By obtaining the surface pressure information, various inferences can be drawn such as flow separation, local flow velocity etc. Traditionally, the most common method of obtaining pressure has been...

This report is the result of a graduation project in the domain of the Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD): Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) in low resource settings in East Africa. The project aims to find promising ways to fit a technical principle, which is being developed at the TUDelft, in the context of VL. VL endemic regions in Eastern Uganda and...

Recent decades have seen the range of applications for aircraft expand to niches like weather monitoring, reconnaissance and satellite launch (Air Launch to Orbit, ALO). The requirements for such roles necessitate unconventional features like twin fuselages (in case of ALO mother ships) and very high aspect ratio wings (for long endurance...

One of the main bottlenecks in air transport operations is the runway capacity at airports. As such, managing aircraft arrivals and departures is of great importance to ensure smooth and efficient airport operations. The research objective of this article is to model the airport departure process at Vienna Airport under the influence of...

Present stroke rehabilitation devices for the arm are often difficult to use by the patient himself and cannot be used at home. A compliant shell mechanism could overcome the shortcomings of the current available devices. By the use of monolithic shell mechanisms a simple to use device can be designed, which can be made wearable. It would make...

Existing scoliosis braces preclude spinal movement for activities of daily living, which reduces the willingness to wear the brace and treatment success. This work develops a scoliosis brace that meets corrective requirements while retaining patient mobility.
The primary compliance vector (PCV) captures the predominant kinematic degree of...

Meteors have been observed by accident from geostationary orbit (GEO). It is of interest for surveillance, meteor science and the updating of empirical models to know what instruments are needed on a GEO satellite to observe meteors and re-entering capsules in Earth ‘s atmosphere. A re-entry simulation code is written to fill the gap of missing...

Covalent reversible chemistries give rise to polymers with reasonable mechanical properties yet require external stimuli to heal. Oppositely, supramolecular systems can heal autonomously, but their properties are still far away from most of those set by application requirements. Both downsides need to be addressed before intrinsic healing...

The Flight-to-Gate Assignment Problem (FGAP) covers the optimal assignment of flights, or rather the aircraft serving these flights, to the available aircraft stands. Existing FGAP models in literature do not consider airside and landside processes simultaneously. We propose a FGAP model with three specifications, where only airside constraints...

In a world with an ever-increasing overflow of information, what are we supposed to believe? Even credible sources are distrusted or no attention is paid to their communications at all. The RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) is looking for new ways to communicate their findings in such a way that people do not only...

AGVs have seen an upward trend in development over the last 60 years. The technology has developed from mechanical bumpers and guided wire navigation to contactless sensors and free navigation technique in the current age. Further, the control on AGVs has moved from central control system to local intelligence which opens up various...

After surpassing human performance in the fields of Computer Vision, Speech Recognition and NLP, deep learning has been gaining scientific ground in IR. In spite of the sheer amount of publications that have proposed so-called neural IR approaches over the past decade, the field has not achieved the kind of progress seen in related fields. Over...

This Ph.D. dissertation describes the theory and realization of wide-bandwidth magnetic sensors for current measurements which breach the conventional offset and noise constraints in CMOS processes. These are achieved by several circuit-level and system-level innovations, including the use of three orthogonal ripple reduction loops (RRLs) in...
