For the design of a steel sheet pile, verification checks should be done on multiple failure mechanisms. One of the failure mechanisms which should be checked is the check on global buckling. This is a mechanism in which the deformation of the pile is enlarged due to the normal or vertical force. With the enlargement of the sheet pile, the soil...

As the world’s population continues to increase, the demand for energy also increases. However, the use of fossil fuel energy has resulted in disadvantageous impacts for humans and the Earth. This condition becomes a good momentum to find a clean and more sustainable energy resources, given the fact that fossil fuel energy is a non-renewable...

Multi-agent systems often communicate to perform better at their tasks. However, messages sometimes get lost after sending, and the communication is disrupted. This paper looks into the effects of messages having a chance of not arriving with an agent using the Blocks World for Teams simulation environment. The environment uses agent teams...

Infiltration is the uncontrolled flow of air into the building through the envelope, which contributes to a significant amount of heat loss and is estimated to be around 30% of the heating demand. It is therefore essential to estimate the amount of infiltration, to design a suitable heating and cooling system in a building. Empirical relations...

Single junction solar cells have a theoretical efficiency limit of 33.1% due to spectral mismatch. To overcome this, multi-junction devices are generally fabricated with two or more junctions, so as to achieve better energy conversion efficiency by optimum spectral utilization. The c-Si bottom cell of a thin-film Si triple-/quadruple-junction...

The transportation industry is constantly developing innovative solutions in order to increase efficiency, sustainability and safety. Truck platooning is one of those emerging technologies with high potential. In one way or another, truck platooning will also have an impact on our current infrastructure and the way in which the motorways are...

In recent decades, rail transport has become a popular mean of transportation due to its efficiency and environmental friendliness technology which lead to increasing the axle loads, speed and recurrence of the trains. These enhanced service provisions resulted in new challenges to the sustainability of the railway systems. Insulated rail joint ...

The shift from open surgery with one large incision to less invasive techniques with multiple small incisions brings benefits such as less trauma, less scar formation and a faster recovery for the patient. However, in minimally invasive surgery (MIS), surgeons struggle with basic tasks such as applying sutures and tying nots. Clip appliers have...

Muscles consists of multiple motor units (MUs) that produce the force required for our movements. Motor unitproperties are responsible for the relation between neural excitation and muscle force (excitation-force relation). Theforce of the muscle is dictated by the recruitment and the force output of the different motor units. The recruitmentis...

XblocPlus is a single layer armour unit that is recently developed by BAM Infraconsult. It is the successor of the Xbloc. An important advantage of the XblocPlus is the relatively high construction speed compared to the Xbloc. The increased construction speed is caused by the possibility to place XblocPlus in a uniform pattern and the relatively...

The scope of a radiotherapy treatment is to induce damage to tumor cells by irradiating them with ionizing radiation. The radiation should target the tumor as visible in images, also called the macroscopic disease. There is, however, a risk of small, invisible groups of cancer cells in the area surrounding the macroscopic tumor, the microscopic...

Although writing code seems trivial at times, problems arise when humans misinterpret what source code actually does. One of the potential causes are “atoms of confusion”; the smallest possible patterns of misinterpretable source code. The misunderstandings and errors have been studied in past for the C programming language. They are found to...

Significant developments in the field of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (A prove traffic management and prediction, driver comfort, and vehicle safety. However, a detailed knowledge of the way vehicles move is crucial for these applications. The mobility behavior has also changed over the last decades significantly. Both individual mobility...

In the last 4 decades, surface electromyography (sEMG) signal processing has been applied to detect local muscle fatigue, this non-invasive approach is suitable for detecting EMG signals generated by athletes in motion. Also, EMG could directly reveal the muscle’s performance like endurance and recruitment of motor units, which is hard to be...

This project focuses on enhancing the accessibility of 3D printing for repairers by designing a system in which repairers can collaborate with makers. Repair has become rare in societies with an abundance of cheap goods. However in recent years repair is making a gradual comeback in western culture. Citizen repair initiatives such as Repair...
