A large part of the Dutch coast, the barrier islands in the Wadden Sea included, would be eroding if the deficit in the total sediment budget was not compensated for through nourishments. Ebb-tidal deltas have an important function within the coastal system that make them of interest for coastal defence as a source and transport path for sand to...

The failure of composite laminates is most commonly evaluated through deterministic approaches. However, even though these traditional methods predict the failure well on average, they cannot take into account the inherent probabilistic aspect of failure mechanics. Thus, reliability methods allow for a better structural assessment and improve...

The industry devoted to keeping us healthy is also one of the largest contributors to climate change: one of the greatest threats to our well-being. Medical devices and services are often designed in and for high-income countries. However, they are also used in low- and middle-income countries. Due to this mismatch of context, they are often not...

In 2020 our lives have been turned upside down by the outbreak of COVID-19. Working from home became the new standard, forcing the whole world into the biggest remote working experiment ever. The already existing remote working trend caught wind and changed the future of work to hybrid working in an office ecosystem. With a large number of...

In orthopaedic and dental surgery, bone grafts are used by surgeons as substitutes for the patient’s own bone. A bone graft provides support to the skeletal structure and stimulates the ingrowth of new bone. There is a growing demand for bone grafts due to an increasing world population and an ageing demographic. Tissue banks produce bone grafts...

As autonomous driving is a popular and ever growing field of research, real world experiments provide a required manner of testing. In this thesis a driving research platform is developed, with a focus on platooning using visual messaging. These visual messages are conveyed using LED matrices. This thesis proposes two methods of LED matrix...

Due to an increase demand for renewable and sustainable forms of energy, the offshore wind industry is growing rapidly. To make wind energy more cost-effective, new wind turbines are becoming larger in size and are placed further offshore. This results in deeper waters, making the installation more difficult. The current methodology uses a jack...

Video-streaming services usually feature post-processing effects to replace the background. However, these often yield inconsistent lighting. Machine-learning-based relighting methods can address this problem, but, at real-time rates, are restricted to a low resolution and can result in an unrealistic skin appearance. Physically-based rendering...

Background: Automated vehicles are promoted as a safety improvement, but they may also bring a new problem of ‘out of the loop’ errors. Automation support in the form of gaze-contingent feedback might be the solution for these errors. Using the SEEV model, operator’s attention allocation can be predicted and using live gaze data, the driver’s...

In the aviation, maritime and oil&gas sector, the potential benefit in yearly savings deriving from the reduction of turbulent skin-friction drag through active flow control are estimated in the millions of U.S. Dollars and million tonnes of CO2 emissions. Research in this topic has brought forward numerous techniques, offering enticing drag...

Multi­-material 3D inkjet printing has great potential for rapid prototyping and manufacturing of functional mesoscale structures when novel inks are combined into a fully integrated AM-process. This process can be faster and cheaper than conventional methods to produce functional structures. Research is conducted on a large range of potentially...

Cities are growing worldwide, which leads to an increase in trips in urban areas. In Europe, more than half of the trips are made by car, while car takes most space of all modalities. Of all modalities car has the highest CO2 emissions. Thehigh number of trips by car within cities lead to challenges related to the accessibility, livability, and...

Refurbishment is a critical strategy in the circular economy (Bocken et al., 2016). Despite the environmental and financial benefits, refurbished products are not a popular consumer choice (Mugge et al., 2017). Refurbished products are seen as old, used and of low quality, and consumers worry that products are contaminated with traces of a prior...

Following the Paris Agreement, the national government of the Netherlands reached the Climate Agreement together with more than 100 organizations. As part of this agreement, the industry sector is faced with the ambitious goal of 59% CO2 reduction in 2030 with respect to 1990 levels. Since the naphtha cracking industry is one of the most...

The introduction of Robotic & Autonomous Systems (RAS) in modern combat seems inevitable, with clear advantages like reduced risk and extensification of personnel. To scope this research, persistent reconnaissance with heterogeneous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is selected, being one of the more prominent applications. Despite continuous...

Hydrological models are used for all kinds of water management applications. Detailed hydrological simulations are needed to solve the hydrological problems of the 21st century, especially in developing countries. However, sufficient hydrological and meteorological data is often not available. The use of remote sensing (RS) datasets may offer a...

The warehousing sector is among the top when it comes to the risk of developing work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs), in particular low back pain (LBP). In this sector, LBP is a prevalent issue, due to the nature of the job of lifting and moving (heavy) objects around. The issue has significant implications for the workers’ health, in...
