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...

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-,...

The increasing interest in solar electric propulsion techniques, that enable significant propellant mass savings for a wide class of transfers, has brought about a revolution in the approach to trajectory design and optimization, as a result of the complexity and diversity of the problem. To date, solutions of different nature exist, but...

This thesis describes an investigation at IHC Vremac, with the goal to improve the delivery performance, from 69% to 85%, focused on how IHC Vremac should manage and control their complete production process when applying Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM). First, the core concepts of QRM were investigated. If a company wants to apply QRM, they...

To understand the full impact of broadband implementation to development, investigations beyond its relationship with economic measures are needed. In this study, we particularly want to assess the impact of broadband to human development. The objective of this study is to build knowledge and insight into impact assessment in the field of human...

This thesis provided an overview of the achievable ammonium concentrations, and the energy used to achieve these concentrations, by ion exchange, electrodialysis and reverse osmosis. The need for this overview arose during research for the N2kWh project, where one step in the process focused on increasing the ammonium concentration of (anaerobic...

This master thesis explores how to extend the product line of the Dutch stroller company JOOLZ with products that support parents in their homes. Traditionally JOOLZ designs , but want to explore possibilities beyond this market segment. The focus of the assignment is parent life in a large metropolis, such as Tokyo, New York and Amsterdam....

Fatigue is the most common source behind failures of mechanical structures. In order to study the phenomena, experiments have been performed by Lloyd's Register and other tests have been presented in literature. Performing real life fatigue experiments requires a long time, a considerable amount of money and it is size limited.

The...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the more common clinical arrhythmias with a high morbidity and mortality. Despite this, the electrophysiological and pathological mechanisms associated with AF largely remain a mystery, encouraging the use of ever more sophisticated techniques to extract vital information for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes...

In this thesis an evaluation of the limit values which are stated in CUR 236 – Micropiles is presented. This evaluation has been done by means of a dataset. The dataset contained information on failure tests performed on four different types of micropiles, and was initially used for research on relations between logged installation aspects and...

HeeremaMarine Contractors (HMC) owns and operates several semi-submersible crane vessels (SSCV) used for offshore heavy lift operations. Throughout the engineering phase of a (dual crane) heavy lift, dynamic lift models are generated by combining bodies with their hydrodynamic properties, inertia and spring-dashpot elements. The models represent...

This project aims to plant a seed in the minds of children to develop sustainable behaviour now and inspire an attitude of environmental stewardship for the future. Children grow up in a take-make-dispose world driven by consumerism. This world is characterised by the continuous production of new consumer products. This has a significant...

The theories of energy harvester and complaint mechanism on micro scale have been developed vastly, however prototyping and realization of conceptual designs of such devices is difficult. Currently, micro scale prototyping devices can only be manufactured by means of lithography. However, lithography is expensive, both in terms of time and cost....

Photochromic smart windows form a promising class of energy-saving technologies for the built environment. In recent years, sputter-deposited yttrium oxyhydride (YOxHy) coatings have been gaining attention due to their desirable photochromic properties such as colour-neutral darkening, high contrast, and...
