This research concerns the analysis of the organisation of transport of cut flowers from Dutch growers. The performance of transport in the current supply chain is analysed with a focus on the total transport costs, and the service level which is primarily defined by the lead time of products. Based on the assessment of the current performance...

A world without digital images is unthinkable in this era of information and communication technology. Billions of images are created, shared and ultimately enjoyed by users every day. However, digital images are sensitive to a wide variety of distortions during the delivery mechanism it goes through. Any of the distortions that can arise during...

Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) is a sight threatening condition. In this type of RD a break in the retina allows liquefied vitreous to enter the subretinal space and the retina to detach. The prognosis concerning the patients' visual ability is better if the RD has not progressed to the macula. The patient is given a posturing advice of...

The diesel engine plays a dominant role in the field of (maritime) transportation and is expected to do so in the coming years. Depletion of fossil fuels and environmental impact are relevant concerns, widely acknowledged by the international community. NOx contributes to acid deposition and eutrophication. Regulations on NOx emissions become...

Looking at performance prediction of small coaxial rotorcraft, it was found that there are no fast methods available for designers. This research was aimed at using a blade element method in combination with the momentum theory to quickly predict the performance at small coaxial rotorcraft. These methods are successfully applied in larger...

A growth in the Dutch food retail is observed. People eat and drink significantly more. 50% of all food is bought in supermarkets and every day over 4 million people in the Netherlands buy their groceries in the supermarket (Rabobank, 2016) (CBL, 2016). However, the current supermarket cannot exist in the future. In its current state, it faces...

In optical imaging, image quality is not only determined by the system itself but also by the media in which light traverse. Differences in the refraction index of the media encountered by a light wavefront produces phase aberrations which distort the image received from the original object. Currently, there are two main approaches for solving...

Ice flow, forced by gravity is governed by the Full Stokes (FS) equations, which are computationally intensive to solve due to their non-linearity. Therefore, it has been unavoidable to approximate the FS equations when modeling growth and collapse of an ice sheet-shelf system, which requires simulating many thousands of years. However, the most...

The main research question that this research seeks to answer is: What are the factors that are perceived to be important for the performance of venturing units at Dutch distribution network operators? Factors found in the literature that impact the performance of this venturing units can be divided into three parts: factors from an...

Extreme weather conditions seem to occur stronger and more frequently due to climate change. Very expensive technology is used to predict them, which results problematic when they have to be used in less developed countries. An alternative could be to employ digital sensors, such as phone cameras or existing webcam infrastructures, widely...

Contrary to a breakwater outer slope, rear-slope revetment does not have to withstand breaking waves. However, generally, an equal dimensioned revetment is used on both the inner- and outer slope. Although with low-crested breakwaters severe overtopping occurs, the application of similarly sized armour on both sides still results in an over...

Wood is an important building material that has been used for thousands of years throughout the world. It is the most widely used building material and due to its characteristics suitable for a wide range of applications. Still, for the last century steel and concrete have been the materials of choice for large buildings. Part of the reason for...

The amount of research and development in smart materials is increasing every year. These smart materials offer a solution to integrated and distributed actuation and sensing. Pressure sensors, acoustic transducers, deformable mirrors, micro-robotics and stiffness control of flapping wings are some applicationswhere these smart materials show...

Due to a low restoring force as well as lack of damping, the roll motion of a
vessel is usually the motion with the highest amplitude of all degrees of
freedom. Therefore, in history many have tried to stabilize rolling ship
starting with Watts in 1883. He described the damping of the roll motion by
having a group of men running...

Dams are an essential part of the Dutch flood defence works to protect the hinterland from flooding by the sea. Sand closures are the construction of closure dams with sand as the main building material. The rising and falling tide generates a current through the closure gap, which increases in strength as the gap becomes smaller. This current...

This research determines the value of local electrical energy storage. This value on one hand consists of a value for the DSO, which is the deferral of investments in their grid. On the other hand, the value of trading with these storage unit is determined. The trading value is constrained by the usage by the DSO.

A few years ago, Air France – KLM decided to change their strategy to become the most customer intimate airline group in Europe. It is a challenging choice to move a large company into a different direction. During six months, research have been
conducted at Air France – KLM (AFKL) regarding customer intimacy and employee engagement. The...

Women inequality is a common practice in today’s world which is global in nature. Focusing on a developing country like India, violence against women, needless to say, is a grave concern. Crime in the form of rapes, molestation, and eve-teasing, has made public spaces fearful, and women have developed the fear of being a part of these places....
