Intraoperative Localization plays an important role in achieving a safe and successful resection surgery. Conventionally, Intraoperative Localization techniques rely on intraoperative imaging guidance, radioactivity guidance, and fluorescence guidance together with local markers. These techniques can assist the surgeon by accurately finding the...

The demand from the automotive industry for thinner, stronger and more ductile steels led to development of the so called Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS). These new steel grades are produced at one of the hot dip galvanizing lines, “Dompel Verzinklijn 3” (DVL3), at Tata Steel IJmuiden. The annealing furnace in DVL3 consists out of a number...

In an accidental explosion of ammunition magazine, concrete debris throw hazard is a major safety concern. The current approach to collect explosively-damaged debris after test does not yield representative test data on debris launch condition. This research is initiated to study the possibilities of using polymeric foam material to soft-catch...

Decision-theoretic planning techniques are increasingly being used to obtain (optimal) plans for domains involving uncertainty, which may be present in the form of the controlling agent's actions, its percepts, or exogenous factors in the domain. These techniques build on detailed probabilistic models of the underlying system, for which Markov...

This project focus on forming a future flying experience for passengers in 2022. The design concept came from the usage of the approach ViP (Vision in Design), by deconstruction of current aircraft environment ,collecting context factors, forming future context. After the future context structure, four types of passengers’ behaviour in aircraft...

The COBRAcable project is one of the major interconnectors being constructed in the North Sea, connecting the Netherlands with Denmark. It is a 325 km submarine cable which will have the ability to transfer 700 MW. The importance of the interconnector is manifold: to facilitate the exchange of renewable energy coming from the onshore Danish...

Jacket support structures are a preferred solution for offshore wind turbines in deeper waters. Extensive knowledge exists in relation to its construction technique as well as its crucial components, but due to considerable cost pressure, continued optimization is essential for the future competitiveness of the concept in the offshore wind...

Due to the shift in electrical energy generation from thermal synchronous generators towards various renewable sources, power system stability will become a more pressing issue in the near future. In this thesis, we explore possible improvements to the dynamic grid model currently used by TenneT TSO for large-disturbance stability studies,...

In recent years, the Netherlands Ministry of Defence (MoD) modelled, standardized, and digitally secured many of its organization-broad business processes. However, MoD experiences great difficulty in gaining insights in these processes and steering them productively. The novel business process analyses method Process Mining appeared to be a...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease, i.e. “wear and tear” arthritis. Approximately 1,2 million people were known to have the disease in the year 2015. Although most joints affected by osteoarthritis have a eminent treatment, the treatments for OA in the trapeziometacarpal joint (TMC) aren’t proven superior to one another. Because...

One of the phases of the installation of Offshore Wind Turbines is the installation of the foundation for the turbine. Herein, a monopile is one of the most frequently used foundation-types. This monopile is a high steel cylinder, over 60 meters high, which supports the wind turbine to the seabed. Currently, monopiles are lifted with large boom...

This report shows that animal glue from porcine skins can be used to make thin films with reproducible properties. It shows that the tensile strength of the film relates linearly to the bloom strength, while the stiffness remains constant for temperatures lower than the glass transition temperature. The report continues to show how Differential...

The Heineken supply chain goes from the production units, through local distribution centers, to the wholesale and retail customers in the market. Heineken Netherlands Supply is interested in bypassing the distribution center in Germany when possible. It is expected that these so-called direct deliveries have the potential to save on transport-,...
