To limit the threat posed by global climate change it is vital to reduce the emissions of the transport sector in the short term. Two existing aerodynamic add-on devices for the rear-end of a heavy duty vehicle, a tail and guide vanes, are combined in an attempt to achieve a larger drag reduction. A research is performed using numerical...

Many active citizens that work on improving their neighborhoods have in-depth local knowledge (small data), but are oftentimes not directly involved in the decision-making processes of city officials. A top-down push is witnessed to make smart use of open data for the development of social solutions and services. However, this creates a gap for...

On a typical 2D LEI kite profile, ow separation is expected to occur on both suction and pressure sides of the airfoil. This thesis is aimed to study various inviscid ow models that are capable of modeling such multiple ow separation phenomena. Inviscid models are capable of modeling single ow separation region over typical airfoils. In these...

The environment in which microscopic organisms live in is dominated by viscous forces because of their small length scales. Inertial forces are of little use to them in their propulsion mechanisms. As a consequence of this, an organism such as the scallop which moves through time-reversible deformations of its body would not propel itself in a...

Wind energy plays an important role in the global energy supply and is obtained by wind turbines placed on- and offshore. The expected growth of offshore wind farms will generate a lot of work in the future. Seaway Heavy Lifting is an offshore company which offers Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) solutions worldwide...

Future wind turbines require larger rotor blade radius, leading to an increase of rotor swept area. The larger rotor swept area results in more energy production of the wind turbine. Further increase is however limited as a result of the structural weight, which induces a large bending moment and could result in buckling of the rotor blade. An...

High efficiency silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cells have already reached more than 26% (Yoshikawa et al., 2017) efficiency when tunnel oxide passivated contacts solar cells just broke the 26% barrier at the beginning of February 2018 (ISFH, 2018). For such devices, major losses occur at both the front and rear contacts where parasitic...

Continuous Climb Operations aim at improving the efficiency of a flight's climb phase by reducing the number of level-offs. The associated fuel-benefits help airlines and airports to comply with future emission demands, rising fuel prices and modernizing airspace requirements. Previously, most studies in this field only considered the effect of...

The Poineering Spirit is a heavy lift vessel that can lift offshore platforms in a single lift. Due to the waves, the vessel moves with respect to the platform. To make sure the vessel does not hit the platform, a motion compensation system is installed on the Pioneering Spirit. The maximum allowable vessel motions during
the operation are...

By monitoring head movement and orientation in space, the vestibular system can evoke appropriate muscle responses in order to maintain standing balance. The present study investigates whether vestibular-evoked muscle responses are dependent on sensory cues of gravity by examining these responses across varying load and gravity conditions....

Due to rising concerns about climate change, a lot of research is currently underway with respect to the development of new technologies which can contribute to the decline of atmospheric CO2, and will allow further penetration of renewables into the energy mix. A promising technology which is currently actively researched is the...

The founders of start-up Scoozy saw an opportunity in the market for electric mobility. The mobility scooter has been driving electric for over 40 years, but has barely innovated. The start-up came up with an alternative for the current mobility scooter: Scoozy. A first working prototype was build in 2017 and tested with potential users. This...

This thesis concerns research into the parametric modelling and optimization of steel-concrete bridge typologies typically found in the Netherlands, in order to further the automation of preliminary bridge designs. The research question posed is: "How can a parametric bridge design model be composed to fit into the
overall road design...

A Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD) is a vessel that is used to cut hard soils with precision. It is moored stiffly through a spud pile while the soil is being cut. This, in combination with wave loads, causes the whole system to be dynamically challenging and nonlinear. Previous attempts to model a CSD in operation have been limited to the frequency...

TenneT’s vision of the North Sea Infrastructure (NSI) creates a basis for a joint European approach up to 2050 which focuses specifically on developing the North Sea as a source and distribution hub for Europe’s energy transition. High wind speed, central location and shallow water qualify the Dogger Bank as the location of the central hub.

The project concerns uncertainty reduction of parameters of a thermodynamic equation of state for a dense gas, using Bayesian inference. The dense gas considered is D6 siloxane and the equation of state used is the polytropic van der Waals equation. The shock tube data comes from the flexible asymmetric shock tube (FAST) experiment. This is...

Keeping a submarine stable underwater is important to be able to execute missions. Therefore, one of the main systems on board of submarines is therefore the ballast trim system. This system is able to maintain the submarine balanced. There must be equilibrium in weight and buoyancy as well as in the trimming moment. This makes the ballast trim...

Phenomena like urbanization and climate change will increase flooding problems, making it clear that more research and investments are needed in sewer systems to improve urban flood prevention. This research was done to determine factors influencing the sediment load to gully pots. It was assumed that in the measurement period, the retaining...
