On a general level, the Dutch government wants to have a fully circular economy by 2050 by reducing the use of primary materials and carbon dioxide emissions. As the consideration and integration of concepts such as sustainability and circular economy are becoming increasingly popular in the civil engineering sector, it might be time to re...

Event-Triggered Control (ETC) is a control method where the controller is only updated when necessary. The control inputs are kept fixed until a state-dependent event triggers their re-computation. The triggering condition is designed to guarantee the stability and desired performance of the control system. This prevents the excessive use of...

3-D ultrasound imaging using a 2-D array provides much more information about our body than conventional 2-D imaging. However, due to the large number of elements in a 2-D array, channel count reduction is required and the power and area budget for each element is limited. It is quite challenging to design an ultrasound interface circuit with...

Tensioned membrane structures are increasingly in demand, because of their ability to cover large spaces with minimum use of material. The material’s mechanical properties play a key role in the design of such structures. The shear behaviour is one of the main influential properties of woven textiles during complex deformations, such as the ones...

According to the Paris agreement in 2015, global warming should be limited by applying new innovative technologies in the industry in order to keep the global temperature 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Governmental organisations, institutes and manufacturing companies themselves are concerned about high emissions and all together...

In this work we show how Group Equivariant Convolutional Neural Networks use subsampling to learn to break equivariance to their symmetries. We focus on the 2D roto-translation group and investigate the impact of broken equivariance on network performance. We show that changing the input dimension of a network by as little as a single pixel can...

In the global energy transition where the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy is needed, wind energy is a growing industry. In the offshore wind industry, Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) are needed to operate and maintain wind farms. To reduce the environmental footprint of SOVs at offshore wind farms, the possibility of battery...

Many recent robot learning problems, real and simulated, were addressed using deep reinforcement learning. The developed policies can deal with high-dimensional, continuous state and action spaces, and can also incorporate machine-generated or human demonstration data. A great number of them depend on state-action value estimates, especially the...

Due to the rapidly growing offshore wind market, there is a high demand for capable wind turbine installation vessels. Current wind turbine installation vessels struggle with the installation of large diameter monopiles due to a lack of crane capacity and with the installation of wind turbine components at hub height due to a lack of crane...

The awareness of climate change has grown worldwide in the past years. Possible consequences of climate change are sea level rise, heavier storms and high river discharges, but also prolonged drought. For a country such as the Netherlands, these water level variations, high discharges and droughts could have a great impact. Therefore, solutions...

Frequentist statistics and Bayesian statistics are the two main approaches to statistical inference. The frequentist approach is commonly integrated into academic curricula, while the Bayesian approach is less frequently employed. However a comparison of the approaches, further investigating their shortcomings and advantages, might give a better...

Hybrid structures consisting of FRP(fiber reinforce polymer) composite decks<br/>connected to a steel girder superstructure are gaining more attention by combining the stiffness of steel members with good fatigue endurance and high strength to weight ratio of FRP. However, when composite material FRP is exposed to elevated temperature,...

Modeling the relationship between rainfall and runoff is a longstanding challenge in hydrology and is crucial for informed water management decisions. Recently, Deep Learning models, particularly Long short-term memory (LSTM), have shown promising results in simulating this relationship. The Transformer, a newly proposed deep learning...

Strain hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) can be used to reduce the amount of reinforcement needed to control crack widths. SHCC has a strain hardening behaviour with dense micro-cracking, which makes it more ductile compared to conventional concrete. Conventional concrete can be used in the non-critical locations. An interface is formed...

Wind estimation plays an important role in many aspects of our world, both for nowcasting and forecasting. This is also true for aircraft flight routes; where wind field knowledge can contribute to flight planning and safety. Aircraft can relay flight information back to ground-based receivers, from which local wind measurements can be derived....

This thesis comprises of vertical deformation differences in high-rise structures where a concrete stability core is combined with a timber frame. The timber frame consists out of prefab timber modules which derive all lateral stability from the concrete core. Due to contrasting elastic, hygroexpansion and viscoelastic properties there is a...

Ethiopia’s energy demand is expected to increase sevenfold in the coming 30 years, resulting in increased variable renewable electricity (VRE) production by solar PV and wind. Energy storage acts as a buffer that mitigates the effects of over- or under-capacity in production by VRE. With 97% of global bulk energy storage, pumped hydro storage is...

Heerema Marine Contractors is assigned to execute the installation of 64 monopiles for the He Dreiht Offshore Wind Farm provided by Energie Baden-Württemberg (EnBW). The installation of the monopiles is done by means of a template structure. This template is specifically designed for this project and is installed on the seabed temporarily. The...

Thick-section high strength steels (HSS) are widely used in engineering applications with requirements of high toughness and strength. Structural components are commonly joined by welding, known to significantly degrade the mechanical properties of steel due to changes in microstructure (e.g., grain size coarsening and martensite-austenite (M-A)...

Grabs are essential in the process of unloading a bulk carrier by grabbing bulk material such as iron ore from the cargo hold. Due to varying operational conditions, the consistency and the amount of payload can vary significantly. One of the largest varying operational conditions is the occurrence of irregular bulk surfaces. Therefore, it is...
