The specific issue researched in this thesis is correcting some inaccuracies that occur when the robot is polishing
certain shapes. The biggest challenge is to mathematically describe this phenomenon in order to find
an appropriate correction. Since there are a lot of influences in the process (friction, movement, impact, degrees
of...

The project proposes a new approach for the design of river riparian zones, researching on the debatable issue of living on the floodplains. In recent years, there has been a shift in the tradition of engineering the river landscape towards a more landscape-friendly perspective. However, the focus still remains usually on nature and recreation,...

The importance of coping with climate change and its consequences on depleting sandy rural landscapes and their water systems is often underestimated. The seasonal imbalance of rise in temperatures and precipitation leading to both drought and flood under extreme circumstances, has deteriorated these landscapes. Attempts to regulate this area,...

When thinking of air pollution, most of the people refers to Asian countries such as China or India where the air is often unbreathable. However, despite the common believes, air pollution poses the single largest environmental risk in Europe today (EEA, 2015) and, among all the countries, Italy has the highest rate of deaths related to air...

The aim of this research is to investigate how a strategic vision can be achieved within a time plan, in this case by 2050, and investigate the Swedish administrative division, to understand who does what and when. The objective of this project is to set up a detailed time plan and develop several strategies which will work as guidelines for the...

Despite great strides made in understanding and modelling Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRPs), their full potential is held back by the inability to accurately predict failure. Contrary to past attempts focused on isolated application of stress-strain and fracture mechanics based failure theories, this research builds upon the existing framework by...

In this work the residual-based variational multiscale method is presented in a discontinuous Galerkin framework. This so-called ‘DG-RVMS’ strategy is developed, extensively verified, and tested on a more complex case.

The proposed DG-RVMS paradigm consists of three principle components. First, the perelement weak form is coupled by...

Nearly 50% of the Dutch gardens is paved and this number is ever increasing. This negatively affects the environment. It contributes to biodiversity loss since less space is available as a habitat for flora, fauna and ecosystems. Secondly, the paved gardens do not allow the rainwater to infiltrate the soil. As a consequence, the rainwater is...

Introduction. Increased joint resistance to imposed movement (“muscle hypertonia”) is a common finding in patients with an upper motor neuron syndrome, following stroke. Contributors to muscle hypertonia are of neural (increased reflex activity) and non-neural (altered visco-elastic properties) nature. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy ...

There are many environmental and industrial contexts with dense particle laden flows. In the literature several numerical and experimental studies have been performed to understand the effects of the particles on the mean flow. Many are the cases where these effects can be modelled by an effective suspension viscosity associated with an increase...

Cutter suction dredgers are a type of hydraulic dredgers often used in areas with hard soil where other types of dredging vessels would be ineffective. As a result of the wide range of type of soil that is being cut a lot of variation is seen in the power demand on the cutter suction dredger's diesel-electric power generation system....

This master thesis project describes the process of the designing of a model that offers a way to improve the acceptation of insects as ingredients.
The final designs show an answer to the assignment: a product or product service combination, which contributes to increasing (multi contextual) insect consumption by improving the acceptation ...

With the arrival of smart electricity meters energy consumption can be monitored continuously and displayed on external devices such as phones or tablets. As a consequence, users become more aware of their energy usage which may result in a reduction in energy consumption. Nevertheless, many countries in Europe still use an analog electricity...

Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is the accelerated process of intervertebral disc decay (decrease of disc thickness, enhanced cell death, ECM damage and collagen loss etc.), accompanied with pain, as well as structural and functional failure. So far, there are no therapies that can inhibit or even reverse the degenerative progress of this...
