Wind loads acting on STS cranes are an important design parameter to be taken into account when designing STS cranes. Current calculation standards such as the EN13001-2 overestimate wind forces. The goal of this research is to propose an improvement on current calculation standards. Wind tunnel tests were performed to assess the results of...

Over the last decade, the recognition of the potential value of augmented reality (AR) and other human-machine interfaces has been growing. These applications are all based on depth sensing technologies. Among various depth sensing technologies, the Time-of-Flight (ToF) approach is emerging as a widely applicable method because it has the...

The main purpose of this report is to investigate flaws within Cornelis Tromp 25T lemniscate crane upper arm joint. This is done in order to figure out why the joint structure is experiencing significant crack propagation and what potentially could have led to a structural joint failure and death of an operator within a crane of the same model....

Natural Language Interfaces for Databases (NLIDBs) offer a way for users to reason about data. It does not require the user to know the data structure, its relations, or familiarity with a query language like SQL. It only requires the use of Natural Language. This thesis focuses on a subset of NLIDBs, namely those with 'plain English' sentences...

The purpose of Supply Chain Management (SCM) is to maximize and stabilize the flow of goods through a supply chain. Disruptions to this flow, such as the Bullwhip Effect (BWE), have become increasingly severe and dynamic, challenging current methods for counteracting these disruptions. This thesis develops a systems and control framework for...

This report covers the development of the Blade Barrier: A sound barrier constructed using decommissioned wind turbine blades.<br/>The ever-growing wind industry faces a composite waste problem. Wind turbine blades only last a few decades, and are difficult and therefore not economically desirable to recycle.<br/>One proposed solution to this...

This master thesis report is the result of a six-month-long graduation project for the Design for Interaction master at TU Delft. The report describes the development of the design guidelines to attune the TAS program to the Netherlands.<br/>The main goals that guided the project were three: identify which aspects of a healthy habit program (TAS...

Loosening of pedicle screws after spinal fusion surgery can lead to serious complications and may prevent fusion between vertebrae. This problem, which has increased in recent years, is a more frequent problem in patients with osteoporosis. In this study, we explore the possibility to use an expanding in‐pedicle anchor with the goal of...

Travelers do not like transfers in their Public Transport journey; it gives a disutility. Minimizing this disutility is valuable to increase travelers' satisfaction. To be able to reduce this disutility, transfers have to be identified first. Multi-operator smart card datasets allow for the identification of transfers between different operators...

Fiber Reinforced Composite (FRC) materials are gaining great popularity in marine structures because of their excellent strength-to-weight ratio, low density, and provided freedom in the design process. However, the use of FRC materials comes along with relatively large uncertainties in material properties and structural integrity after...

Online searching for healthcare information has gradually become a widely used internet case. Suppose a patient suffers the symptom but is unsure of the action he needs to take, a self-diagnosis tool can help the patient identify the possible conditions and whether this patient needs to seek immediate medical help. However, the accuracy and...

With the maturization of the cubesat market, the requirements for finer control over satellite attitude drives the development of higher performance Attitude Determination and Control Systems. (ADCS)<br/><br/>The ADCS uses reaction wheels as an actuation method, which in turn use brushless DC (BLDC) motors to rotate a heavy rotor wheel. BLDC...

Investigating station choice is important for possibly solving various capacity issues such as bicycle parking. Current literature is often restricted to dissatisfier parameters such as travel time, presence of transfer and travel costs. In order to fully understand station choice, this research includes factors regarding perceived safety and...

<br/>Power system planning is a strenuous exercise for both people and computers. As carbon goals and geopolit- ical complexities intensify, the number of scenarios for electricity system development is limitless. In search of robust policy and profitable investments, policymakers and investment managers rely on long-term elec- tricity system...

The compliance (stiffness) of a human arm varies, depending on the task at hand. Some precise tasks require high stiffness, while others need a level of flexibility to deal with unknown disturbances. To describe this human behaviour a portable device is needed to give small force perturbations (input) while the resulting reaction of the arm ...

BACKGROUND: Research on the role of patellar biomechanics in patellofemoral (PF) joint pathologies requires accurate and reliable measurement of the patella relative to the femur (patellar tracking) but current methods have limitations. In vivo measurement of PF kinematics is done using medical imaging techniques but these are expensive, involve...
