Ordoñez Celaya, David (author)
Pressure represents a physical magnitude which allows the characterisation of flow behaviour. Its study is
of great interest for engineering purposes and is broadly reported in the literature. The practical implementation of pressure measurements in industrial wind tunnel facilities involves the use of intrusive pressure probes only able to...

This report provides an analysis of the consumer experience at the end-of-use phase of a product. The study in this report focussed on the consumer-product relationship: how this plays a role in the process of product detachment, and what this means for products at the end-of-use, with a specific attention for products in a circular economy.

This thesis describes the process of redesigning the 3D-paintbrush. It looks into extruder screws for plastics and finds the best design variables for the 3D-paintbrush. Vortex cooling has been used to cool the extruded plastics fast and efficient. With the findings for melting and cooling the thesis looks at human-machine interaction and...

The Internet-of-Things has grown much in popularity over the past years, leading to the gathering of large amounts of pervasive and detailed data. This same trend is seen in the agriculture industry, where a lot of data can be collected on the cultivation methods. The agriculture industry is considered to be a strategically interesting industry...

Controversial policies have always been subjected to severe social scrutiny and opposition. With the rise of megacities and complex transportation networks, there has been significant growth in the number of controversial policies in the field of transportation. There has been substantial research in the past regarding transport policies, their...

If a practical quantum computer is to be built, it will not only need quantum programming languages and qubits, but hardware-software interfaces as well. These interfaces, also known as computer (micro)architectures are the key to creating a ’quantum stack’, where a programmer can directly execute programs onto quantum hardware. A functional...

With tackling the problems of resource depletion and waste, the currently booming topic of a circular economy (CE) comes up. This concept goes beyond the processes of reusing and recycling products and looks at the entire material and energy loops of products. The current economy, or linear economy, is still the status quo where products are...

Comets, the sporadic visitors from the outer edges of the Solar System, are considered to hold the key for understanding the formation of planets and the origin of life on Earth. Having spent the majority of time away from the radiative environment of the inner Solar System, the chemistry of the comets has remained unaltered, making them the...

Neurologically impaired patients can regain motor function by engaging in rehabilita- tion. Currently there is no conclusive evidence that robotic rehabilitation has better clinical results than conventional rehabilitation but robotic rehabil- itation has the potential to increase efficiency and patient motivation, justifying improvement of reha...

The number of sustainable electrical energy sources is growing rapidly. These energy sources have a fluctuating and irregular pattern over time. Therefore, electricity storage is needed in the nearby future. The Concentration Gradient Flow Battery (CGFB), which uses the Blue Energy technology as a storage mechanism, has a promising market...

The computation of complex turbulent flows design optimization processes is currently limited by the lack of accuracy of Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) in massively separated flows and the infeasible cost of multiple Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) evaluations. A novel method is presented, injecting data from LES or other high-fidelity...

The Delfi-n3Xt was the second nanosatellite developed at the Delft University of Technology, and launched in 2013. Its successor Delfi-PQ is expected to be launched in first half of 2019. The Attitude of a satellite can be referred to as its orientation in space with respect to inertial reference frame. The Delfi-n3Xt was the first satellite...

Employees are often referred to as the main cause of cyber security incidents in organizations. These incidents can lead to huge company risks and enormous losses. Therefore insight in how organizations can improve employees’ information security behavior is important, realizing that technical measures alone cannot reduce all security risks....

Managing electrical distribution assets entails making the decision on how to proceed with an ageing asset. The three options that asset managers have are run to fail, perform maintenance or repairs and lastly to replace. This decision making process is becoming incrementally more important due to the threat of replacement waves. This a...

In the framework of JAXA's MMX mission to explore the Martian moon of Phobos, an analysis of the stability of three-dimensional quasi-satellite orbits in the Mars-Phobos circular restricted three-body problem was conducted. For this analysis, notions of co-orbital motion, interpreted as the slow motion of the guiding center of the trajectory...

Session types are a formal method to describe communication protocols between two or more actors. Protocols that type check are guaranteed to respect communication safety, linearity, progress, and session fidelity. Basic session types, however, do not in general guarantee anything about the contents of messages, while real-life applications of...

Controller synthesis techniques based on symbolic models or discrete abstractions are becoming increasingly attractive as they allow for synthesizing correct-by-design controllers of general nonlinear systems under complex behavioral requirements. However, its immense size as the consequence of the state-space explosion prohibits the approach to...

Nourishments are considered to be a popular soft measure against coastal erosion. In the Netherlands, the concept of a localized mega nourishment has been introduced as an innovative approach, aiming to counteract the anticipated enhanced coastal erosion. The positive results of the Sand Engine implementation lead the way for applying the mega...

The feasibility of improving the Earth collision uncertainty knowledge of a potentially Earth impacting asteroid by means of a multi-flyby mission has been researched in this thesis. The feasibility is assessed both from an astrodynamics point of view and from a systems engineering point of view. The astrodynamics part provides knowledge...
