An acetabular revision is a very challenging intervention, due to moderate to severe bone deficiencies and poor bone quality. Current solutions for this intervention are associated with inconsistent and unreliable clinical outcomes. This leads to substantial complications, including implant migration and loosening. These complications are, among...

Due to microbial activities, the anaerobic degradation of organic matter happens in the sediments and leads to considerable gas production. Especially for low flow areas gas production is more easily fostered. To prevent the potential problems caused by gas production from the riverine sediments, this study focuses on magnitude of gas formation...

This project is an initiative of the Department of Surgery in Maasstad Ziekenhuis. In the department, two types of patients undergo abdominal surgery: 1) mobile obese patients and, 2) patients with cancer. These types of patients need personal contact and guidance, especially patients with cancer. However, nurses are overwhelmed with work and...

This thesis focusses on the application of vertical profiled mortar connections in precast concrete shear walls that are built up with a stacked element configuration. The goal of the project is to develop a practical modelling approach in order to be able to apply the connections in a FEM model for structural analyses. For this purpose several...

The importance of value-based health care
Worldwide, health care systems are struggling to control costs while improving care outcomes. An ageing population, increase in chronic patients and shortage in care professionals result in high burdens on our health care systems. Current health care systems are organized around delivering quantity....

Most ocean-going ships are fitted with an impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) system. The currents impressed by this system onto the seawater find their way to corroding parts of the ship’s hull, and prevent the hull from corroding. The electric field resulting from the currents around the ship is called the electric signature. This...

Wireless power transfer is getting more attention than ever before but seems to be lagging in the go-kart industry. Manufacturers are designing more electric powered go-karts, but haven’t found a proper solution for most of its major drawbacks. The added weight from the battery pack and the required time to recharge are just two of these major...

Falling is a problem in elderly, affecting 30% of people over 65 years old, and leading to serious injuries in 10% of the cases. Because balance is controlled in a closed loop system with a high level of redundancy, the cause of impaired balance control is often unknown. A balance control model in combination with perturbed balance experiments...

Imaging Mass Spectrometry (IMS) is a spectral imaging technique, which enables detection of the spatial distribution of molecules by collecting a mass spectrum for every pixel across a tissue sample. As such, IMS enables the detection of disease-introduced anomalies in tissue samples as well as the gaining of deeper insight on a molecular level...

Model-based evolutionary algorithms (MBEAs) are praised for their broad applicability to black-box optimization problems. In practical applications however, they are mostly used to repeatedly optimize different instances of a single problem class, a setting in which specialized algorithms generally perform better. In this paper, we introduce the...

A variable speed AC motor drive, fed by a 3-phase AC supply, often consists of a 3-phase bridge diode rectifier, a DC link capacitor and a pulse width modulated inverter. Recently, a new type of capacitor known as film capacitor or slim capacitor has become popular for use in DC link. This capacitor has a lower value of capacitance and a longer...

The use of esters as transformer insulation has been gaining increasing interest over the past few years because of their better environmental performance, higher resistance to the influence of moisture and for some particular liquids, higher flash point as well. However, in order to completely replace the traditional mineral oil and be...
