The Dutch coast is affected by coastal erosion. In order to limit erosion and prevent inland migration of dunes, sand nourishments have been adopted as a common practice for the maintenance of the coast. The evaluation of the applied coastal erosion policy is achieved by the use of coastal indicators. Increased number of nourishments affects the...

The need of image (frame) acquisitions within short time intervals is of major importance for preclinical SPECT imaging. The short frame times enable higher temporal resolution which is required in bio-distribution and pharmacokinetic studies where fast dynamic imaging is performed. The present study evaluates and compares the performance of two...

The Twisted and Coiled Polymer Muscle (TCPM) is a new, light weight compliant actuator that is easy and inexpensive to produce. As a result there is a growing body of research, with the goal of implementation of the TCPM. Our research combines two existing fields: 1. Self-sensing, eliminating the need for an external force and displacement...

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) potentially can improve the flexibility and management of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). To investigate the impact of SDN on WSN, in this thesis, we consider three Software-Defined Wireless Sensor Network (SD-WSN) frameworks, namely SDN-WISE, SDWN-ONOS, and TinySDN. After comparing these frameworks, the...

This project is originated from a starting business relationship between &ranj and NIPED, under the management of &Samhoud. In this project &ranj is in the task of gamifying the Persoonlijke Gezondheidscheck (PGC), an online health check platform designed by NIPED, to better persuade their users to change their behaviour and improve...

The Ishikawa concrete drying shrinkage model is a new computational model which simulates drying shrinkage behavior based on the theory of capillary pore pressure, a known drying shrinkage mechanism. Its initial validation against shrinkage tests shows promise. If the mathematical model can be further validated, it has potential to improve...

Water injection is a core element of geothermal, petroleum and waste water management industries where water is injected into the subsurface after treatment and filtration to comply with environmental regulations and water quality requirements. Some impurities still remain in the water even after the filtration process. It has been widely...

Investment projects in railway infrastructure networks are needed to maintain a high condition of the network, maximize the capacity of the network, and to keep the risk low. Railway organizations are aiming to achieve these goals, but also want to minimize the costs of the investments. The desires of stakeholders in railway networks such as the...

The construction of the new airport of Mexico City (NAICM) is challenging, as the subsoil at the site is very weak. The airport, which is under construction at the moment, is located on top of thick layers of Mexico Clay soils. These clayey layers consist of a mixture of both clay particles and pyroclastic volcanic materials. These unique soils...

In recent years due to the slow down of Moores Law and Dennard Scaling, alternative architectures have started to been used instead of plain CPU implementations. One solution is FPGAs but the problem with them is high the high effort and specialization required for implementation. Furthermore an implementation is specific to a certain algorithm...

In traditional networks, the network functions are implemented as physical appliances which are called middleboxes and these middleboxes need to be deployed in predetermined locations throughout the network. Therefore one of the most important disadvantages of using middleboxes is that each network function deployment requires a great deal of...

The trailing edge of wind turbine blades are commonly manufactured as an adhesive joint of the pressure-side and suction-side composite panels of the blade. Under some conditions, a lead-to-trailing (LTT) edgewise bending moment can induce buckling at the trailing edge adhesive joint, which may lead to early failure of the blade due to...

Fragments of asteroids and comets constantly encounter the Earth and Moon in their orbits, impacting them as meteoroids. Observations of meteor showers on Earth have been studied for at least 50 years, in order to construct accurate Solar System meteoroid models. More recently, Earth-based telescopic observations of the light flashes produced by...

PID is the most commonly used technique in industrial motion control. It consists of three components - lead, lag and low pass filter (LPF). PID, being a linear control method is inherently bounded by waterbed effect due to which there exists a trade-off between precision, tracking, and stability. Reset control is a nonlinear technique which...

Heat transfer in multiphase flows plays an important role in many industrial applications. For instance, particle-based solar receivers utilize the high absorptivity and heat capacity of dispersed phase in a carrier fluid to improve efficiency and heat transfer. This dispersed phase generally consists of a large number of small particles. It is,...

The automotive industry has developed an interest in manufacturing structural parts from continuous fibre-reinforced polymers because legislation is becoming more strict on the permissible CO2 emission of newly produced vehicles. Additional requirements on the level of recyclability has raised the question if composite materials with...
