To meet the demand for renewable energy sources, large numbers of offshore windfarms are planned to be constructed in the near future. The majority of the foundations for these offshore wind turbines are large-diameter monopiles. The driving of monopiles into the seabed is conventionally done using a hydraulic hammer, this process is commonly...

In IT systems, a logfile provides administrators with an audit trail which can be used to review a system’s activities and a way to discover and diagnose problems which have occurred within that system. When an attacker penetrates an IT system, commonly one of their first actions is tampering with the logs, so that they can hide their malicious...

The city of Amsterdam is facing a housing shortage and according to the future population prognosis, the problem is going to become more severe due to growing immigration numbers. Following Brexit, Amsterdam, along with other European cities are competing to attract the biggest share of potentially relocated businesses and organisations from...

The main objective of this graduation is to find a new structural principle that is emulated by the design by nature. Observing, analysing and transforming the natural design principles and laws could derive a new application in the field of structural design. There are many concepts, approaches and directions to translate biology to...

Space exploration could be significantly aided by combining the disciplines of machine learning and computer vision, but these disciplines need to be developed further for specific space-related applications to have merit. One of the applications for space exploration is the detection of certain structures designating areas of interest. This...

SGLR parsing is an approach that enables parsing of context-free languages by means of declarative, concise and maintainable syntax definition. Existing implementations suffer from performance issues and their architectures are often highly coupled without clear separation between their components. This work introduces a modular SGLR...

This study focuses on automated malaria diagnosis in low quality blood smear images, captured by a low-cost smartphone based microscope system. The aim is to localize and classify the healthy and infected erythrocytes (red blood cells) in order to evaluate the parasitaemia in an infected blood smear. Due to the lower quality of the smartphone...

Shell is working on mono-diameter drilling (MOD). A MOD well, or MOD well section, has a (nearly) constant diameter over several sections. This is achieved by deploying expandable liners: a liner is lowered into position and is expanded by pulling an over-sized cone through it. This plasticly deforms the pipe, increasing its inner diameter to...

The main objective of this thesis is to develop a method to investigate stability behaviours of stiffened and unstiffened panels under the influence of in-plane compression and out-of-plane lateral pressure using appropriate simplifications. A test fixture to conduct buckling experiments with lateral pressure is also designed. Due to the...

The Tohoku Tsunami of 2011 in Japan flooded a large part of the coastal area of Japan. The tsunami was caused by an earthquake with a magnitude of 9.0 just of the coast of Tohoku. The inundation height of the tsunami exceeded the design height of the tsunami barriers. This event led to thousands of fatalities.
The aim of this study is to...

Many small island developing states (SIDS) are among the most vulnerable to climate change (e.g. sea level rise) and seasonal to inter-annual climate variability, and subsequently experience flooding due to swell waves and wind waves, coastal erosion and salinisation of freshwater lenses. To counteract this, reef flat mining for sand and...

Packaging made from renewable sources has become more important in our society every day. Bio-based packaging is a sustainable alternative to petrochemical plastic packaging since it reduces the dependency on fossil fuel resources and lowers CO2 emissions. Tetra Pak has recently introduced the bio-based package in the market. Tetra Pak’s bio...

A traceability system for primary packaging materials is compulsory by law for the food- and beverage industry. With a good traceability system an organisation is able to quickly recall unsafe products to protect consumers health. This research aims to analyse and improve the traceability of the primary packaging materials at Heineken...

A strategy for completing a dredging project is called a working method. The goal of a tender study is to find an optimal working method for a specific project. To find the optimal working method, the full range of possible solutions should be investigated. However, the available resources during a tender study are often limited and trends in...

The Haga hospital in The Hague demands a more structured approach for their patient planning in outpatient clinics. Five clinics have been observed and analysed using the Delft Systems Approach and system requirements were established using three main stakeholders: Patient, Doctor and Hospital. Main conclusion is that current coordination lacks...

Providing detailed appliance-level energy consumption information helps consumers to understand their usage behavior and encourages them to optimize their energy usage. Non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) or energy disaggregation aims to estimate appliance-level energy consumption data from the aggregate consumption data of households. NILM...

Santos is a warehouse from the beginning of the 20th century, that has been vacant for most of its existence. Located on Katendrecht, it is placed right in the middle of a future high-density plan for 'de Pols', which focuses on attracting urban creators. By turning Santos into a creative office, the thesis builds upon these plans from the...

Steady state multiphase flow models are used for the design and operation of pipelines that are used in the oil and gas industry. The predictions obtained with these models contain uncertainties, which arise from model assumptions and simplifications, and from uncertainties in the input parameters. In this thesis we investigate the effect of...
