To produce accurate 3D fluvial architecture models, it is important to understand the influence of internally generated autogenic controls versus externally generated allogenic controls. When studying a fluvial system, autogenic controls such as river meandering and avulsions generally dominate over 103-104 years. Allogenic controls such as...

An idea was proposed to allow an autonomous drone to have indefinite flight times over the ocean by applying renewable energy technologies and theory to generate electricity in flight. This is considered less as a way to save energy, but to permit the use of such a drone from a ship not capable of safely retrieving it. One novel component of...

Electrochromic materials exhibit a reversible color change that is triggered by an applied voltage. Controlled color change, low voltage operation and the memory effect are three unique material properties defining electrochromic materials. As a result of an electron transfer or redox reaction, the material is able to switch between its bleached...

City logistics concern solutions in package movements that face challenges in rapid growth in demand for home deliveries, congestion, and expectations from consumers for sustainable solutions. Providing last mile delivery services with drones is considered a promising solution in literature as a response to the raising challenges in urban areas....

For organisations, the capability to exploit data for innovation efforts has already become imperative to their survival in an ever more competitive market. However, many organisations are currently still struggling with how, where and when to use data science for innovative purposes. The consulting industry is a significant driver for the...

A smart home can be defined as a system of connected devices that are controlled remotely from one central place. Smart home solutions used to be for early adopters who like the novel and fun part of this new technology. Currently the smart Home market is moving to mainstream users. Hombli is a smart home brand established in 2019 in the...

Superyachts are large emitters of greenhouse gases, as well as other emissions such as NO<sub>x</sub>, SO<sub>x</sub> and PM. In order to meet the climate goals set by the IMO, to reduce GHG emissions by 50% in 2050, alternative fuels are being investigated. Methanol is an alternative fuels with great potential. Methanol can be produced...

Variations in the production process of fiber-reinforced composite (FRC)materials often influence the material properties of the end product more substantially than their metallic counterparts. It can be valuable for the structural performance and reliability to have a better estimation of the properties of the FRC after production. Detecting...

A Fall-Pipe system deposits rock on the seabed for the protection of submerged objects. Due to the irregular motion of a vessel on the waves the accuracy and efficiency of the rock dumping process is limited. This thesis develops a motion compensation system for a modular Fall-Pipe system developed by Vuyk Engneering. From literature it appears...

This research focuses on developing architected lightweight cementitious cellular composites (LCCCs) for potential thermal insulation purposes. Specifically, Voronoi cellular structures with different randomness are adopted and used as cellular structure of the LCCCs. the mechanical properties of the developed LCCCs are investigated by...

The goal of this dissertation was to integrate the models developed by the Intelligent Maintenance Systems (IMS) group of ETH Zürich, with a dataset typical to the Structural Integrity and Composites (SI&amp;C) group of the TU Delft. To achieve this objective, the open source Guided wave dataset from the NASA Prognostics Center of Excellence...

Some propellants currently used in space propulsion have the disadvantage of being dangerous to humans and the environment. A wellknown example of this are hydrazine and its derivatives which are toxic, corrosive, and carcinogenic. These disadvantages have led to a search for less hazardous storable liquid propellants, often referred to as green...

A formulation based on the evaluation of power conversions within the system allows to overcome the limitations of conventional momentum analyses to study tightly coupled airframe-propulsion configurations such as Boundary Layer Ingestion. The so-called power balance method is applied in a CFD framework to gain insight about the application of...

Flapping-Wing Air Vehicles (FWAV) are autonomously flying vehicles that use their flapping wings to simultaneously stay aloft and enable controllable flight. FWAVs that are capable of controllable flight are reported in literature, though a theoretical background of the aerodynamic performance of different attitude control mechanisms is absent...

Optimization of traffic signal control has been widely investigated by means of model-based strategies. In 2012 a new model-based controller was published, named Schedule-driven Intersection Control (SCHIC). This controller uses a job-scheduling algorithm to minimize the cumulative delay for all observed vehicles. The algorithms of SCHIC are at...

In 2011, Adaptive Delta Management (ADM) was introduced in the Dutch Delta Program as a policy development method to incorporate uncertainty in decision making transparently. Currently, little is known over the functioning of ADM in practice, while this is determining its success. The study explores the application of ADM in Dutch practice....

In this thesis, a new methodology called the adjoint method is developed to select an optimal set of beam angles and beam weights in external beam radiotherapy. The Linear Boltzmann Transport Equation is specifically adjusted for proton transport and forms the Fokker-Planck approximation. The Fokker-Planck approximation models proton transport....

In the current moment in time, there are large societal transitions happening, such as the transition to sustainable energy or the transition towards a circular economy. Design-led transitions are societal transitions towards more sustainable futures, led by designers (Irwin, 2015). These transitions help us to move towards a more sustainable...

Gas turbines (GT) play a crucial role in the transition to fully sustainable energy. Conversely, the expected growth of the GT market is met with more stringent regulatory requirements. Clearly, an increasing turbine inlet temperature (TIT) is beneficial for the efficiency of GT cycles. With increasing TIT, however, the magnitude of the thermal...

The enlargement of the lock complex of Terneuzen in 2023 will allow Capesize vessels up to 300 meters in length, to access the Ghent-Terneuzen canal and reach the quay of ArcelorMittal Ghent (AMG). The goal of this thesis is to estimate to what extent these vessels can be used, the impact that these vessels will have on the supply chain and the...
