It is expected that automation and income inequality will have a major impact on the world economy in the 2020’s and beyond. A research conducted by Bain (K. Harris, Kimson, & Schwedel, 2018) claimed that the impact of the economic disruption, which could be triggered by the collision of income inequality and automation, might be more...

The coastline of the United States has been threatened by significant erosion for the past decades. A study in 2000 predicted that 25% of the houses located within 150 meters of the shoreline will be destroyed by erosion in 2060. The east coast of the US experiences an average erosion rate of roughly one meter per year. Moreover, the Atlantic...

Humans teach each other by recollecting one's own experiences and sharing them with others. The intention being that the person being taught, does not need to experience those things first-hand to be able to learn from them. A large portion of human learning is in some form derived from this concept. This has inspired this report.

Transvenous lead extractions (TLEs) are minimally invasive procedures in which pacing or implantable cardioverter defibrillator leads are extracted under guidance of 2D X-ray fluoroscopy. Despite the fact that fluoroscopy is currently the gold standard for TLEs, it has several limitations in terms of visualization of anatomical structures, areas...

The “affordability of housing” is generally defined as affordable housing for those with median household income (Eurostat, 2018). If not addressed effectively by policymakers, the unaffordable housing gap is expected to affect 1.6 billion people around the world by the year 2025 (McKinsey, 2014). The unaffordable housing in Amsterdam...

This research focused on improving a current traveltime estimation system called
the Trajectplanner. This system simulates the movements of inland ships on a
network model of the Dutch inland waterways in order to calculate and to
estimate the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) for every ship that sails the inland
waterways ...

Atherosclerotic plaque rupture is the main cause of acute myocardial infarction and stroke, the two leading causes of death worldwide. Rupture of plaque tissue is a mechanical event, where plaque stress or strain locally exceeds its strength. Biomechanical studies agree with histopathological findings that a large lipid pool and thin fibrous cap...

From the beginning of the 21st century, thin glass has been used as a screen protector for electronic devices and smartphones. During the last 10 years, several studies have been carried out to introduce the thin glass in the building industry. The advantages of this material are light weight, high strength and high flexibility. On the other...

Malaria is a major problem in sub-Saharan Africa, with as a result over 400,000 deaths each year. With pesticide resistance on the rise, new methods have to be developed that will reduce malaria transmission. The mosquito trapping method, in combination with bed nets, has been proved to be effective. The M-Tego is a mosquito trap embodiment...

Sensory nerve roots (DRGs) that emerge from the spinal cord can be stimulated with electrodes to prevent neuropathic pain. Proper functionality of DRG stimulation strongly depends on electrode placement, and conventional pre-curved introduction shafts limit DRG coverage of the implanted electrode lead. The goal of this thesis is to design an...

This thesis reports on the research and design of a real-time Time-Varying Model Predictive Control (TVMPC) scheme to stabilize a tilt-rotor aircraft with four independently tilting rotors. The aircraft design stems from a prototype system constructed by the drone technology start-up Avy.
First, a motivation is presented for implementation...

In this work, we model a multi-robot formation planning and control task as an optimization problem, which we solve on-line and in a decentralized manner using the Stochastic Optimal Control (SOC) framework. Typically, the solution of a SOC problem requires solving the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation for all system states and controls....

According to themselves, Argentinians are living with their backs towards the sea. In order to turn this around, a feasability study has been done to find out how a network of marinas along the coast of the province would look like, based on a MCDA including all urban areas along the coast and a fleet analysis. A final network has been proposed...

Nanomechanical resonators made from graphene are widely researched for their potential applications due to their high sensitivity. Their atomic scale thickness makes it that these resonators exhibit amplitude-dependent damping at relatively small driving forces. To further increase the performance of these devices, it is essential to understand...

In operational airline crew scheduling, one of the major tasks is to allocate flight activities to individual crew members. This task is referred to as the crew rostering problem; an optimization problem that aims to assign flights to crew members in a cost-effective way, while also considering preferences of crewmembers. Flights are combined...

Shipyards these days see an increase in customers that specify combined speed and seakeeping ability design requirements. This requires the shipyard to make a prediction of the additional installed power required to maintain a certain speed when waves are encountered. The additional required installed power is directly related to the average...
