In this report, the issue of pitch control in a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine is tackled. By using and aerodynamic model, a theoretical optimum pitch solution is found and then a simple four-bar mechanism is adapted to that theoretical solution to achieve a simple and elegant control of the pitch in the turbine. The model used is the Actuator...

Aortic stenosis is one of the most serious heart valve diseases and is the result of calcification of the aortic valve leaflets. This calcification is irreversible and affect the functionality of the heart valves. The only treatment is an aortic valve replacement. The trend in heart valve replacement is moving from open heart surgery towards...

Large-scale infrastructure projects such as ports can have a significant impact on the development of nearby cities. While economic benefits of the port spill over to other regions, often internationally operating firms, port-cities experience negative externalities like environmental and land use issues and traffic congestion. Traditional port...

Eddy currents are loops of electrical currents induced within conductors by varying magnetic field in the conductor. Eddy currents flow in the closed loops in the conductor, in planes perpendicular to the magnetic field. The eddy current effect plays an important role in the transformer or an actuator system.
If there is a coil wound around...

Growing interest has been expressed the last decades regarding the Late Cenozoic, gas-bearing sediments of Southern North Sea Basin. Comprising the shallow subsurface of the Dutch offshore sector, these sediments have
been deposited by Eridanos fluvio-deltaic system, draining the Fennoscandian and Baltic shield through the present Baltic Sea...

Analysing attractiveness of places in a region is beneficial to support urban planning and policy making. However, the attractiveness of a place is a subjective and high-level concept which is difficult to quantify. The existing methods rely on traditional surveys which may require high cost and have low scalability. This thesis attempts to...

This study treats the calculation of longitudinal forces on a ship in a lock chamber due to the levelling procedure. The focus will be on the force resulting from the filling jet through the levelling door in the lock, with the main point of interest being the interaction between the ship and the flow resulting from the jet. To understand more...

Introduction: During functional electrical stimulation (FES) the onset of muscle fatigue limits the treatment and rehabilitation of patients. In previous work, variable frequency trains (VFT) have been suggested to take advantage of a tension enhancement property in muscle. The varying of other parameters in stimulation trains, such as amplitude...

In order to stay undetected and keep their operations alive, cyber criminals are continuously evolving their methods to stay ahead of current best defense practices. Over the past decade, botnets have developed from using statically hardcoded IP addresses and domain names to randomly-generated ones, so-called domain generation algorithms (DGA)....
