Hydraulic structures that are surrounded by flowing water can experience undesirable Flow-Induced Vibrations. These vibrations have a record of negative consequences. The most important cause of vibrations is self-excitation. This is a mechanism in which the forces acting on the hydraulic gate are amplified by the movement of the hydraulic gate...

Representation learning is a central topic in the field of deep learning. It aims at extracting useful state representations directly from raw data. In deep learning, state representations are usually used for classification or inferences. For example, image embedding that provides similarity metrics can be used for face recognition. Recent...

Renewable energy is continuously increasing its penetration in the energy supply network around the world. Due to the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources like solar and wind, storage of excess energy during its availability is vital. Energy storage, especially on the large scale, has recently received a lot of attention from the...

This research investigates the role of how Finite Element simulation models reproduced progressively crushed Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) parts. The proposed work is motivated by the research questions concerning what are the relevant critical modeling strategies that accurately reproduce the behavior of in-plane crushed laminated...

This work is on the extension of the SWIFT method to option pricing problems where the sum of lognormals occurs. The SWIFT method (ShannonWavelet Inverse Fourier Technique) is extended to the valuation of geometric Asian options and arithmetic Asian options with a Lévy process as underlying price process and the valuation of European options...

Glacial isostatic adjustment is the viscoelastic response of the Earth to ice and ocean loads. In forward models of glacial isostatic adjustment, mantle viscosity is often assumed to be laterally homogeneous. However, a lateral transition in shear wave velocities suggests a sharp transition in viscosity between West and East Antarctica. Along...

The main goal of any launch vehicle is to bring as much payload to space as possible. Space planes have been studied for decades, as they are thought to be more cost effective for frequent access to space than traditional expendable launchers. This research aims at optimizing the payload capacity of a single stage to orbit (SSTO) horizontal take...

In spaceflight, a launch vehicle is a rocket used to carry a payload from the Earth's surface into outer space. By traveling supersonically, launch vehicles are exposed to harsh environmental conditions during the various phases of operation. However, the most extreme operational conditions are encountered within the rocket engines themselves....

Timber construction has a promising future in the face of global sustainable development challenges. Using timber as the main structural material, the carbon footprint of a building is strongly reduced since the carbon will be stored for as long as the building stands or the timber is used.

An integrated structural concept was...

This work focuses on the improvement of a capacitance-to-digital converter (CDC) based on iterative discharging. Time-domain interpolation is applied on the CDC. With such technology, a high-resolution CDC can be achieved while its fully digital feature can be kept. The proposed CDC achieves a resolution of 2.8fF and a FoM of 1.32pJ/step at 5...

Using Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors in rolling element bearings is a novel way of monitoring bearings. During prototype testing, differences between sensor readouts were observed, leading to the research question: “What causes the observed differences in the strain distribution from sensor to sensor in a rolling element bearing equipped with...

Background: One of the biggest challenges of analyzing electroencephalogram (EEG) data in pain processing is the low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). A common method to increase the SNR is to average time-locked responses over repeated trials. Unfortunately, relevant information is lost due to averaging. In addition, EEG responses are influenced by...

Wave runup is generated by energy which remains after wave breaking and travels farther to the coast in the form of a bore. It can be seen as a thin wedge of water running up the beach face (Brocchini and Baldock, 2008). Under storm conditions runup is responsible for beach and dune erosion and accurate runup predictions are therefore required ...

This report is the graduation thesis for the Master of Design for Interaction, Faculty of Design Engineering at Delft University of Technology. The report presents a set of guidelines showing the relationships between food textures and conscious and satiating snacking experiences. As a designer, food textures can be considered as tools to shape...

In the Netherlands the main sources of electricity are currently coal and gas fired power plants. Due to the increasing share of electricity that is produced from renewable energy sources, the operational hours of these conventional power plants are decreasing. However, these power plants are also the main source of frequency reserves,...

Removing organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) can enable wastewater reuse to alleviate pressure on fresh water sources. This research aims on the prediction of OMP removal efficiencies by ozonation and biofiltration based on experimental data sets and/or modelling. Comparison of experimental data on average OMP removal of three different studies from...

Vegetation on river banks and bars contribute to the stability of these morphological features; however, the exact processes that contribute to this stabilization are still subject to research. This study has looked into the flow phenomena at the streamwise interface between a vegetated and non-vegetated river bed. Flow velocities in vegetated...
