This work aims to determine the optimal microphone placement on an acoustic array of TU Delft’s ‘V-tunnel’ which is used for beamforming in aero-acoustic studies. The beamforming performance is driven by two parameters; the Maximum Side lobe Level (MSL) and the Main Lobe Width (MLW). The array design should give a good trade-off between these...

International attention towards energy efficiency improvement is growing, pressuring the built environment to become more sustainable. Part of this energy efficiency improvement must be achieved at Dutch primary school buildings, but insufficient- and separation of budgets complicate the development of sustainable school buildings. Subject to...

Malaria is a life-threatening parasitic disease and the leading cause for high morbidity rates in developing countries. In Nigeria, the chosen context of this study, over 90% of the population is at risk of malaria infection, leading to 60% of the outpatient visits in Nigerian healthcare facilities. Accurate diagnostics are not available for the...

Estimating the number of people in a given area and knowing their positions open up numerous possibilities for a variety of smart data driven applications. Most of the existing systems either require active participation from people in the crowd or are too expensive to be deployed. The exponentially increasing adoption of smartphones by people...

This thesis contains the concept of a hand held device that is able to measure and classify the stem of avenue trees in a more automated matter with the ability to process the results digital. The measure concept is based on the technique of triangulating a 2D profile by using a slit laser and camera.

An understanding about geomechanical condition is necessarily needed in order to examine the state of stress of a subsurface area. Geomechanical modeling is one of the method to understand the mechanical condition and has been used in various subsurface-related industries such as oil and gas, geothermal, and CO2 storage. The principal stress...

Increased use of the distribution grid due to the uptake of distributed energy resources and the expected penetrations of Electrical Vehicles (EVs) could lead to congestion problems in the distribution grid. Congestion refers to issues related to the overheating of components or voltage issues in the distribution network. Avoiding these issues...

When working offshore on a floating vessel, the vessel will be subjected to wave induced motions and with a moving crane tip, a suspended load can start to swing. When the motions of the load become too large, the operation is interrupted. Alternatives such as jack-ups, function as a fixed platform to which the crane is attached, therefore...

The drinking water safety has been paid close attention, and the water purification development and distribution cleaning have been widely studied. To meet stricter water quality regulations and fight new emerging pollutants, upgrading treatment processes to improve treated water quality has become common practices worldwide. However, the quality...

The development of domestic mobile manipulators for unconstrained environments has driven significant research recently. Robot Care Systems has been pioneering in developing a prototype of a mobile manipulator for elderly care. It has a 6 degrees of freedom robotic arm mounted on their flagship robot LEA, a non-holonomic differential drive...

In the race for cost reduction in the offshore wind industry, support structure optimization leading to weight reduction plays a prominent role. The fatigue limit state is often the driving consideration for support structure design. Monitoring the monopile loads can offer an accurate knowledge of its consumed and remaining fatigue lifetime,...

The goal of this master thesis is to design an instrument which is able to insert an implant called a spinal cage, designed by M. Ahmadi, between two vertebrae. The spinal cage is of a new hinged, and spring loaded design, requiring a new insertion instrument, since no existing instruments are able to place the implant. The implant is used in a...

Rembrandt was a unique painter of his era, and one of his most outstanding pieces is The Jewish Bride. He mastered the art of manipulating pigments to create unique paint mixtures and textures. This can be seen in his painting, The Jewish Bride.
In the background of The Jewish Bride, Rembrandt mixed five pigments together: bone black, red...

Pavlovian eyeblink conditioning is a powerful experiment used in the field of neuroscience to measure multiple aspects of how we learn in our daily life. To track the movement of the eyelid during an experiment, researchers traditionally made use of potentiometers or electromyography (EMG). More recently, the use of computer vision and image...

The load of the electric grid in increased by the connection of more renewable energy sources and less controlled power stations. The transmission operator has to decide where and when new overhead lines are required. However the operator can also chose to utilize existing lines more by increasing the transport capacity. This can be accomplished...
