The growth of the offshore wind industry results in intensive usage of the sandy seabed in the North Sea, currently and in the coming decades. Large-scale bed forms are present in shallow seas with sandy beds such as the North Sea. The most dynamic bed forms are sand waves. Due to their dynamic behaviour, sand waves can interact within offshore...

The idea for Geometry matching by multi-agent systems as a subject originates at a previous course, where the J. Sturkenboom & author came up with an idea to use the material of old boat hulls as facade elements to provide a solution to an environmental problem. The approach then was rather practical, whereas the approach within this thesis...

In this thesis, the development of a deployment mechanism for a primary mirror of a space telescope is discussed. A mistake has been found in the earlier work on the design of this subsystem, due to which the design is set back to a concept selection phase. A trade-off has been made between several concepts. A simplified thermal model that...

Due to growing touristic movements worldwide, cities and landscapes start to experience or are already experiencing negative socioeconomic impacts, resulting in for example a decreased liveability and overcrowding. The increase of tourism is related to global trends like globalisation, economic well-being and migration movements. Amsterdam is...

The energy transition plays an important role in the building industry. Energy efficient buildings with smart and renewable energy technologies are developments to realize a more sustainable built environment. Photovoltaics, energy efficient lightning and smart grids are examples of these active building components which are broadly implemented...

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) tend to focus upon short-term profit in a crisis period, however the EU advised SMEs’ to invest in innovation and quality of products. How SMEs balance between these two contradicting strategies is seldom addressed. Therefore, this study explores how SMEs align their organization upon short term...

This research is aimed at breaking online political filter bubbles. We present a system that uses artificial intelligence and human computation to automatically collect article metadata on political content and thereby enables diverse personalization on content-serving platforms. This way, exploring alternative viewpoints could become as simple...

The Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) industry has been traditionally fragmented, with a lot of disciplines specialising in different aspects of a project and encapsulating different knowledge areas. This research project, entitled “Knowledge Model for the Parametric Design of Concrete Viaducts”, investigates the development of...

This thesis documents the implementation of atomic instructions for the ρ-VEX (reconfigurable VEX). These instructions enable threads to communicate enabling efficient multithreading. Furthermore, we investigate the possibility to use inter-thread communication to improve performance of static ρ-VEX configurations without significantly...

How would it be if collective appropriation was an essential part of a spatial strategy?
Playgrounds of commons refer to a mix of top – down and bottomup
spatial strategies and design interventions taking as a starting
point that Rotterdam South can be seen, and (re)designed as an
heterotopia, where as Shane (2003) underlines...

Monumental theatre buildings such as the royal theatre Carré, facilitate different forms of performance arts and are obliged to maintain the monumental values of the building. Monumental theatres face many challenges. such as growing multifunctionality demands, physical limitations. The research question of this research is "What tool can be...

Technical developments in generation and demand of energy will motivate significant change in the electric power grid, both on the transmission and the distribution level. A major innovation would be the successful transformation of the current passive power grid towards an active and ICT-based smart grid. Among the technical efforts that will...

Thin-film silicon solar cells make use of relatively thin layers of active material compared to wafer based solar cells. The main advantage of thin absorber layers is the possibility to fabricate flexible solar cells. However, due to limited absorber layer thickness and weak absorption coefficients at long wavelengths, light management...

Wave barriers are a common mitigation measure when dealing with environmentally induced vibrations. These wave barriers generally consist of stiff vertical walls buried in the soil to impede waves on their path from the source to the receiver. The geometries of the wave barriers that are used in practice are very simple. More complex geometries...

In this society, where where people conform to their obligations, don't take the time to dream and make those dreams reality, there is a need for voluntary courageous behavior. By viewing courage as a muscle, we can train it by gaining experience. Courage is defined as battle between someone's fear and someone's will. Fear and will are situated...

This report present Bitstory: a new methodology for caregiving to support parents of autistic children by building a strong support network. Bitstory was designed to be implemented in the caregiving processes of De Buitenwereld. De Buitenwereld is a Dutch healthcare institution which provides care to families of children with (suspicion of) a...

The unreinforced masonry construction of Dutch terraced houses in Groningen is prone to lateral earthquake loading. To analyse the capacity of these houses, the faculty of Civil Engineering at the TU Delft started a test campaign. In this thesis, the experimental results served as benchmarks to validate a relatively new numerical method:...

In recent years, bone tissue engineering has emerged as a promising strategy to overcome the limitations of current ‘gold standard’ treatment options for bone disorders such as bone autografts and allografts. Bone tissue engineering strategies rely on the development of a scaffold that mimics the extracellular matrix, thereby providing an...

Automated tape or fiber placement (ATP/AFP) with in-situ consolidation has been identified as a promising manufacturing technique for thermoplastic (TP) composites, which are highly in-demand in the aerospace industry for future aircraft structural applications. This manufacturing technique is attractive since it has the potential to eliminate...
