The application of vertical greening systems (VGS) onto building envelopes constitutes an innovative way to implement more green in the living environment. Especially in dense urban areas, where only limited space is available to integrate more horizontal greening at ground level, VGS have the potential to contribute towards creating a greener,...

With the current focus on climate change, the shipping industry is forced to decarbonise its fleet. The need for decarbonisation is not only fuelled by the aspirations of the sector but also by laws and regulations from countries and organisations. As these laws are gradually tightening and there is not one clear technical or operational...

The Molten Salt Fast Reactor (MSFR) is a next generation nuclear reactor. The MSFR may play an important role in combatting global warming whilst ensuring energy safety considering fossil fuels’ finiteness. A key safety mechanism for the MSFR is the freeze plug, a valve underneath the reactor core designed to melt during reactor malfunction,...

At the EU Parliament in Brussels, deliberation and decision-making processes are stuck in an ever-turning hamster wheel designed to reach unanimous compromises. The architecture of the so-called Consensusland provides spatial settings exclusively designed for the purpose of reaching compromises and not offering room where discussions and...

Introduction: The positioning of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) leads in the epidural space to deliver therapy for chronic pain currently relies on intraoperative feedback from the patient. This feedback is not always reliable due to sedation, discomfort, and prone positioning of the patient. Excluding the need for patient feedback by performing...

An event-based camera enables capturing a video at a high temporal resolution, high dynamical range, reduced power consumption and minimal data bandwidth while the camera has minimal physical dimensions compared to a frame-based camera with the same vision properties. The limiting factor, however, of an event-based camera is the spatial...

In the semiconductor industry, integrated circuits with nanometre scale structures are manufactured on silicon wafers. Particle contamination on the topside of the wafer can result in the defectivity of the entire die. In the ever-increasing efforts to create smaller structures onto a wafer particle contamination becomes more restrictive to...

Propeller propulsion systems combined with Boundary layer ingestion (BLI) have been proposed as a propulsive system to reduce the CO2 emissions of aircraft by 50% by 2050. BLI leads to increased disturbances at the propeller disk and causes more noise due to the fluctuating blade loading. Using the APPU project as a test case, unsteady inflow is...

The minimum vertex cover problem (MinVertexCover) is an important optimization problem in graph theory, with applications in numerous fields outside of mathematics. As MinVertexCover is an NP-hard problem, there currently exists no efficient algorithm to find an optimal solution on arbitrary graphs. We consider quantum optimization algorithms,...

In recent years, neural networks (NNs) have seen a surge in popularity due to their ability to model complex patterns and relationships in data. One of the challenges of using NNs is the requirement for large amounts of labelled data to train the model effectively. In many real-world applications such as radar, labelled data may be scarce due to...

Echosounders are used to monitor suspended sediment concentrations (SSC) in coastal management studies and to monitor dredge plumes. Due to the dependency on sediment properties like particle size, shape and density, performance of single frequency measurements is limited when sediment properties are changing.<br/><br/>Using multi-frequency...

Numerous advancements have been made in transparent electrode technologies that can complement optogenetics and imaging modalities. However, several obstacles restrict the design and material of electrode devices, including the required flexibility, transparency, low impedance, high charge storage<br/>capacity (CSC), and high charge injection...

This thesis investigates the total environmental impact of various alternative marine energy carriers while taking the powering increase into account due to their disadvantageous spatial requirements compared to conventional fuel. A parametric design tool for bulk carriers, tankers, container ships, and trailing suction hopper dredgers has been...

This paper investigates the spatial requirements of alternative marine energy carriers and their impact on ship design and powering for constant operational requirements. A parametric design tool for bulk carriers, tankers, and container ships has been developed for the predicted future marine energy carriers to determine the main engine brake...

Due to the constant growth of global maritime shipping, the optimization of grabs used for unloading bulk carriers is more and more relevant. Especially for a coarse material like limestone, the average payload can be improved, by altering the grab design. It is suggested that the penetration and cutting depth of a grab can be improved, which...

In this research a double diamond method was used to redesign a gymnastic crashmat to enable easier transportation without reducing its functionality. This was done since the presence of such mats is questionable in event halls, mainly in international competitions. This makes it impossible for athletes to make use of crashmats during training...

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) that are integrated with the electricity grid have proven to be a suitable solution for reducing costs by providing flexible demand, but are often uneconomical when used solely for this purpose. Despite the research efforts showing the benefits of an energy-integrated harbor-area smart grid (HASG), the...

This thesis developed a forward model for Sentinel-1 C-band co-pol and cross-pol backscatter and coherence using crop biophysical variables including leaf area index, tops weight, surface soil moisture and root zone soil moisture as inputs for sugarbeet. These input variables are simulated using a crop model called Decision Support System for...

The Netherlands is dealing with a severe housing crisis, in which there is a major shortage of affordable housing. The government has introduced many new regulations, trying to curb this affordability problem. Many of these measures seem to center around tempering market parties on the Dutch housing market. However, quite contradictory is that...
