Every day we produce an extremely high amount of data and a significant portion of this data is archival data. It is an important challenge to save this data in a cheap and environmentally friendly way. The current methods to save archival data are sufficient, but improvements can be made. Synthetic DNA based data storage is a great choice to do...

Io is Jupiter's innermost Galilean satellite and the most volcanically active body in the Solar System. Its volcanism is driven by tidal heating generated by its interaction with Jupiter and maintained by other Galilean satellites. The tidal forces acting on Io also cause significant stresses on its interior. It is investigated if tensional...

It has been determined that the plastic waste load in the Petanu river (Bali, Indonesia) can be as high as 2015.5 kg/day in the beginning of the rainy season. To restore the ecosystem and protect human livelihood this load should be reduced drastically. The enormous pollution rate is largely due to the massive amounts of mismanaged (plastic)...

Online customer reviews on products have become a large part of marketing intelligence in recent years. These documents are a source of information on what aspects of a discussed product can be improved upon. These aspects are named drivers. CQM, the company in which the internship for which this thesis was written took place, has developed a...

Drainage of fluid from wet adhesive-substrate interfaces is often mentioned to be an important mechanism in obtaining strong grip. It has been hypothesized that micropatterned adhesives – that contain features (e.g., pillars) separated by channels on their surface – have a better drainage capability compared to unpatterned adhesives....

As a low-lying city, Shanghai faces threats from typhoon and spring tide under the condition of climate change and land subsidence. With high water level at the toe, the sea embankment is likely to be overtopped and breached, finally resulting in inundation inland.  The objective of this research is to study climate change...

Due to emerging climate concerns, a growing pressure is put on the fashion industry to adopt circular business models which encourage sustainable usage of clothing. The clothing supply chain is currently both complicated and polluting. Paired with rising quantities of clothing sales, technological solutions will only temporarily tackle the...

Spiking neural networks are notoriously hard to train because of their complex dynamics and sparse spiking signals. However, in part due to these properties, spiking neurons possess high computa- tional power and high theoretical energy efficiency. This thesis introduces an online, supervised, and gradient-based learning algorithm for spiking...

This project is initiated by Stan Buckens, a radiologist from the RadboudUMC, who believes in realizing passive four-dimensional (4D) CT scans for the wrist. At this moment the wrist is mainly scanned and reviewed statically in 3D. However, it is desirable to see what happens on a CT scan during movement (the fourth dimension) of the wrist, as...

In floors without dilation joints drying shrinkage cracking can occur. Shrinkage reducing agents (SRAs) can reduce the amount of drying shrinkage and improve the durability of the concrete structure. The mechanism of shrinkage reduction and the influences on the hydration process and development of mechanical properties of the SRA Sika Control...

Electrochemical reduction of the \ce{CO2} into the chemically valuable \ce{CO} at an industrial scale is a promising way to reverse the worrying rise of \ce{CO2} levels in the atmosphere. Profitable operation at an industrial scale requires high CO partial current densities, producing a CO-rich output, while keeping the energy consumption and...

Pencil beam scanning is becoming a more common treatment modality. However, its ability to deal with moving targets is known to be limited, as beam motion and target motion can reinforce each other, deteriorating the planned dose distribution in what is called the interplay effect. Literature concerning breathing motion usually investigates...

Due to new legislation, a lot of research is done in the development of a Collision Avoidance Systems (CAS) for surface mines. Almost all CASs studied in literature are decentralized and developed for passenger vehicles or aviation applications. That makes them unsuitable for the mining environment. A centralized system can ensure optimal...

Our world is becoming increasingly more digital, but its security has not catched up yet. Therefore, cyber security is becoming ever more important and needs to be improved. This improvement can be made by increasing collaboration and knowledge exchange. A Community of Practice (CoP) is a concept often deemed an appropriate tool to manage...

Istanbul Water and Sewage Administration’s estimations of decline of water supply is calculated as 24%, with a 2 °C increase in temperature by 2030 caused by increasing evaporation from reservoirs (van Leeuwen & Sjerps, 2016, 12). Considering the fact that 97% of water sources are these dams/reservoirs, it is obvious that İstanbul is...

The increase of the average world temperature, as a result of greenhouse gasses, is one of the greatest challenges the world is currently facing and will be facing in the future. One of the many efforts to reduce the increase of carbon dioxide, is to decarbonize the gas network by replacing natural gas with renewable gasses like green gas. Since...

This thesis is focused on protecting sensitive data in optimization-based control methods. We propose a novel Privacy-preserving Model Predictive Controller (PMPC) where multiple agents are controlled by an untrusted external coordinator. By using the Paillier additively Homomorphic Encryption (HE) scheme, our PMPC allows the coordinator to...

Preventing or decreasing chronic health conditions by healthy eating is increasingly seen as a shared responsibility. Defining what is healthy is person-specific, depending amongst others on a person’s health and responses to food. Supermarkets, which are considered highly influential in shaping the diet of customers, are starting to serve...

The impact of the traffic measure package (TMP) configuration on performance outputs of a behavioral policy measure (BPM) is in practice predominately estimated, but not yet substantiated. This was also the case for TMPs implemented in ‘Beter Benutten Vervolg’ (BBV), which was a program that executed hundreds of policy measures to get car users...
