Advances in technology during the last decade have made piloted vehicles a reality. With an increasing level of vehicle automation, the role of the driver changes from controlling and observing the driving environment into becoming a passenger. However, with the introduction of piloted driving, the user has to trust his life to a machine....

Currently, non-rigid image registration algorithms are too time intensive to use in time-critical applications. To solve this problem, stochastic gradient descent (SGD) has been implemented in image registration. But, SGD depends on manual step size selection which is dicult and time consuming. To avoid such manual selection, SGD has been...

Curved exhaust ducts are used in aero engine applications for different purposes, including thrust vectoring, shielding of parts from the exhaust or improving stealth properties. Their integration, however, regularly represents a design problem due to flow separation and high aerodynamic losses occurring in the bend. Curved duct flows for both...

Western shipyards have to distinguish themselves by complex ships with short delivery times. This entails that in most cases the production already starts while the engineering has not even been finished. If the pipes and cables are not routed when the steel plate are cut by the CNC machine, the associated penetrations have to be cut manually...

With the extensive use of the internet nowadays, companies are becoming more and more at risk from cyber-attacks. Especially SMEs are vulnerable, as they lack in cybersecurity. This is due to time, resource and knowledge constraints. In the literature no clear solutions can be found in order to help SMEs with their cybersecurity. To overcome...

Airline profit margins are very small. In a highly competitive market, the challenge is to differentiate from other airlines. Differentiation within an airplane is difficult, because of the rigidity of an airplane and the strict regulations. The economy is in a lift, businesses allow their employees to fly business class more often. First class...

Large-scale changes in ocean conditions caused by installing and operating Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) have not been studied in depth. Conversely, the effect on an OTEC plant by oceanographic features are not researched in depth either. The aim of this research is to describe the natural patterns and variability of the ocean currents...

Extreme folding damage of open-ended tubular piles could occur during piling in onshore practices. Amazonehaven unique quay wall removal gave the opportunity to study king pile’s failure close to toe. King piles are primary piles in a combined wall system, exposed to static and dynamic load. It is argued that the unexpected pile toe failure have...

This work aims to determine the optimal microphone placement on an acoustic array of TU Delft’s ‘V-tunnel’ which is used for beamforming in aero-acoustic studies. The beamforming performance is driven by two parameters; the Maximum Side lobe Level (MSL) and the Main Lobe Width (MLW). The array design should give a good trade-off between these...

International attention towards energy efficiency improvement is growing, pressuring the built environment to become more sustainable. Part of this energy efficiency improvement must be achieved at Dutch primary school buildings, but insufficient- and separation of budgets complicate the development of sustainable school buildings. Subject to...

Malaria is a life-threatening parasitic disease and the leading cause for high morbidity rates in developing countries. In Nigeria, the chosen context of this study, over 90% of the population is at risk of malaria infection, leading to 60% of the outpatient visits in Nigerian healthcare facilities. Accurate diagnostics are not available for the...

Estimating the number of people in a given area and knowing their positions open up numerous possibilities for a variety of smart data driven applications. Most of the existing systems either require active participation from people in the crowd or are too expensive to be deployed. The exponentially increasing adoption of smartphones by people...

This thesis contains the concept of a hand held device that is able to measure and classify the stem of avenue trees in a more automated matter with the ability to process the results digital. The measure concept is based on the technique of triangulating a 2D profile by using a slit laser and camera.

An understanding about geomechanical condition is necessarily needed in order to examine the state of stress of a subsurface area. Geomechanical modeling is one of the method to understand the mechanical condition and has been used in various subsurface-related industries such as oil and gas, geothermal, and CO2 storage. The principal stress...

Increased use of the distribution grid due to the uptake of distributed energy resources and the expected penetrations of Electrical Vehicles (EVs) could lead to congestion problems in the distribution grid. Congestion refers to issues related to the overheating of components or voltage issues in the distribution network. Avoiding these issues...

When working offshore on a floating vessel, the vessel will be subjected to wave induced motions and with a moving crane tip, a suspended load can start to swing. When the motions of the load become too large, the operation is interrupted. Alternatives such as jack-ups, function as a fixed platform to which the crane is attached, therefore...
