Background: In low- and middle-income countries there is a high demand for prosthetic devices. An automatic system, in which hand prostheses are manufactured with 3D printers can potentially offer a solution for patients having a transradial defect in these areas. As part of such a system, a detailed 3D model of the residual limbs is needed. In...

The feasibility of improving the Earth collision uncertainty knowledge of a potentially Earth impacting asteroid by means of a multi-flyby mission has been researched in this thesis. The feasibility is assessed both from an astrodynamics point of view and from a systems engineering point of view. The astrodynamics part provides knowledge...

Session types are a formal method to describe communication protocols between two or more actors. Protocols that type check are guaranteed to respect communication safety, linearity, progress, and session fidelity. Basic session types, however, do not in general guarantee anything about the contents of messages, while real-life applications of...

Controller synthesis techniques based on symbolic models or discrete abstractions are becoming increasingly attractive as they allow for synthesizing correct-by-design controllers of general nonlinear systems under complex behavioral requirements. However, its immense size as the consequence of the state-space explosion prohibits the approach to...

As population levels protected by large dams have risen in the last decades, accurately assessing flood hazard and risk will become increasingly important for developing and sustaining flood mitigation policies. Recent research has shown that the degree of control and protection offered by retaining structures largely depend on their operation...

This master thesis describes the outcome of the graduation project “Capitalizing the helping hand” which is executed for, and commissioned, by WeHelpen. The project aims to find new ways of helping in the informal domain in order to extend the services provided by WeHelpen, and to consider the interests of the stakeholders and members comprising...

With a fast increasing use of composite materials in aerostructures, industry demands design tools capable to reduce experimental tests while providing reliable data. Multiscale simulations enable to model and analyze fracture processes at the microscale, thus delivering higher accuracy and fundamental information about crack processes which...

Wind turbines constitute a sustainable and effective solution for the production of energy using wind power. Offshore wind turbines are becoming of special interest. However, their design poses great challenges, since an offshore structure is subjected to combined wind and wave dynamic loading that is characteristic of the installation site and...

Demonstrated by the James-Webb Space Telescope launch, the scientific community shows more and more interest in mid-infrared observations. The diffraction limit of an instrument is inversely proportional to the diameter of the telescope: the larger the primary mirror, the higher the resolution. Therefore, the instrument METIS (Mid-Infrared ELT...

This series – “Speaking – is part of a graduation project for a double degree in Architecture and Science Communication at the Delft University of Technology. The overall aim of this project was to design a form language that can be used in complex problem-solving processes in the field of science communication. The graduation project consists...

This research combines two relatively new additions to the field of discrete choice modelling: sequential best worst discrete choice experiments (SBWDCE) and random regret minimisation (RRM) modelling, with the hope of developing a more behaviourally realistic choice model. SBWDCEs are able to gather a larger number of stated choice observations...

Is improvement of pole vaulting performance still possible, or has the theoretical peak level already been achieved? Looking ahead to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, in 2016 the NOC*NSF asked the TU Delft Sports Engineering Institute to identify the possibilities of improving pole vaulting performance. Marco Reijne developed a mechanical model in which...

Nowadays, a satellite is considered as out of range forever once it is launched. This may soon no longer hold thanks to on-orbit servicing. However, the complexity of that topic makes it highly challenging on many aspects. On-orbit servicing using a robotic arm is nonetheless the most investigated technology in order to achieve the berthing of...

This research analysed the effects of using an AR co-design environment as a supportive tool during design meetings, on the interaction within a project team.
Lacking interaction is a problem that occurs project wide in the construction industry and can cause diverse effects, leading to mistakes and rework. This lack often originates in the...

A considerable contribution to the greenhouse effect originates from landfills. This contribution originates from the degeneration of waste in the landfill. The gas which is created during the degeneration consists of 40 to 60% methane. One mole of methane has a global warming potential which is 28 times higher than that of carbon dioxide....

In the past 40 years, an incomprehensible 8,3 billion metric tons of plastic has been produced and is primarily being discarded and incinerated, instead of being recycled. Only 10 per cent of this total amount has been recycled to date, therefore it was decided to focus on recycling of plastic waste to reduce plastic pollution which negatively...

Pile driving can cause plastic deformation to the head of the driven pile, which in turn can lead to connectivity issues when the superstructure is installed. Moreover, plastic deformation reduces the estimated service life of the structure. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor the strain levels during the installation in order to detect if the...

The elicitation of user engagement is one of the current challenges of human-robot interaction, alongside with the identification of appropriate metrics to evaluate users' experience. Several studies focused on strategies aimed at maintaining engagement throughout an interaction, but limited research has been done on how to initiate it by...

Evolution of coastline position under the influence of natural and anthropogenic processes is directly linked to the development of seaside societies. In the context of coastal zone management, process-based morphodynamic models are often used topredict coastline evolution and support the decision-making process...
