Jacket support structures are a preferred solution for offshore wind turbines in deeper waters. Extensive knowledge exists in relation to its construction technique as well as its crucial components, but due to considerable cost pressure, continued optimization is essential for the future competitiveness of the concept in the offshore wind...

Due to the shift in electrical energy generation from thermal synchronous generators towards various renewable sources, power system stability will become a more pressing issue in the near future. In this thesis, we explore possible improvements to the dynamic grid model currently used by TenneT TSO for large-disturbance stability studies,...

In recent years, the Netherlands Ministry of Defence (MoD) modelled, standardized, and digitally secured many of its organization-broad business processes. However, MoD experiences great difficulty in gaining insights in these processes and steering them productively. The novel business process analyses method Process Mining appeared to be a...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease, i.e. “wear and tear” arthritis. Approximately 1,2 million people were known to have the disease in the year 2015. Although most joints affected by osteoarthritis have a eminent treatment, the treatments for OA in the trapeziometacarpal joint (TMC) aren’t proven superior to one another. Because...

Focusing on real life commercial applications, this thesis presents the theoretical and practical control requirements of an application board, which exploits flexible bidirectional DC-DC converters, to power up a unit of multi USB type-C ports. Emphasis is given in the power management between the connected devices since the power flow is...

The presence of implants in the body is frequently associated with a high risk of peri-implant infections. The host and the bacterial cells compete to adhere and grow on the implant surface. Therefore, producing an implant that can promote the stem cells function (e.g., osteogenic differentiation) while reducing bacterial colonization is vital....

The current research aims to numerically predict the performance characteristics of the Oryon Water Mill. The simulation mechanism to be developed, begins at the structural solver part of a partitioned FSI solver, upon which the unique functional characteristics of the turbine are embedded. The modelling is carried out to account for the turbine...

One of the phases of the installation of Offshore Wind Turbines is the installation of the foundation for the turbine. Herein, a monopile is one of the most frequently used foundation-types. This monopile is a high steel cylinder, over 60 meters high, which supports the wind turbine to the seabed. Currently, monopiles are lifted with large boom...

This report shows that animal glue from porcine skins can be used to make thin films with reproducible properties. It shows that the tensile strength of the film relates linearly to the bloom strength, while the stiffness remains constant for temperatures lower than the glass transition temperature. The report continues to show how Differential...

The Heineken supply chain goes from the production units, through local distribution centers, to the wholesale and retail customers in the market. Heineken Netherlands Supply is interested in bypassing the distribution center in Germany when possible. It is expected that these so-called direct deliveries have the potential to save on transport-,...

This thesis describes an investigation at IHC Vremac, with the goal to improve the delivery performance, from 69% to 85%, focused on how IHC Vremac should manage and control their complete production process when applying Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM). First, the core concepts of QRM were investigated. If a company wants to apply QRM, they...

To understand the full impact of broadband implementation to development, investigations beyond its relationship with economic measures are needed. In this study, we particularly want to assess the impact of broadband to human development. The objective of this study is to build knowledge and insight into impact assessment in the field of human...

This thesis provided an overview of the achievable ammonium concentrations, and the energy used to achieve these concentrations, by ion exchange, electrodialysis and reverse osmosis. The need for this overview arose during research for the N2kWh project, where one step in the process focused on increasing the ammonium concentration of (anaerobic...

Fatigue is the most common source behind failures of mechanical structures. In order to study the phenomena, experiments have been performed by Lloyd's Register and other tests have been presented in literature. Performing real life fatigue experiments requires a long time, a considerable amount of money and it is size limited.

The...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the more common clinical arrhythmias with a high morbidity and mortality. Despite this, the electrophysiological and pathological mechanisms associated with AF largely remain a mystery, encouraging the use of ever more sophisticated techniques to extract vital information for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes...

In this thesis an evaluation of the limit values which are stated in CUR 236 – Micropiles is presented. This evaluation has been done by means of a dataset. The dataset contained information on failure tests performed on four different types of micropiles, and was initially used for research on relations between logged installation aspects and...
