Our world is rapidly changing, leading to various technological achievements in diverse areas of expertise. Among the most evolving are autonomous robots, machines and vehicles, enormously extending human capabilities. While this trend became quite familiar for land-based vehicles, innovations in the underwater domain lag behind, mainly due to...

With the growing population and industrial development, there is more stress on natural water resources. Additionally, environmental laws make the disposal of waste streams from industries difficult. In this scenario, it is crucial to treat waste streams to recover water and possibly minerals, for reuse in the industry, reducing the dependency...

Settlement data of the Kiltunnel and the Heinenoordtunnel show that immersed tunnels in the Netherlands have been experiencing much larger settlement than expected when designing the tunnels causing cracks in the concrete and leakages in the joints. Settlements of 8 - 70 mm have been measured at the Kiltunnel and of 7 - 30 mm at the...

The counterfeit market is rapidly expanding into the online realm. Large amounts of fraudulent webshops advertise luxury clothing and fashion accessories, but ship counterfeit products to their customers. Apart from customers, brand owners and domain registries experience a negative impact caused by these fake webshops. Current countermeasures...

A traditional Trombe wall is known as a high thermal-mass wall, situated behind a window of a room and separated by an air cavity. The idea behind using a Trombe wall is that heat, ventilation and comfort can be passively generated by using the ‘free’ energy of the sun. The surface of the wall absorbs solar radiation when the sun shines, stores...

Background: Pressure ulcers are skin and soft tissue wounds that lead to severe patient suffering and considerable financial burden, with the yearly treatment cost estimated at 1.25 billion euro in the Netherlands alone. Research findings suggest posture classification in bed as a promising tool for pressure ulcer prevention, however currently...

In 2018, 1.1 billion people still lacked access to energy services. Most of these people are located in remote areas which are hard to reach, especially with conventional methods of grid extension. Even if the number of people without energy access is decreasing and the number of people gaining access to electricity through renewable sources is...

Jetted radial wells are a relatively new form of hydraulic stimulation for oil and gas wells, where small diameters holes extend radially from a wellbore. This technique for increasing well connectivity could also be applied to geothermal wells. Radials can be freely placed along a backbone well, making the design of an economically viable well...

This research is focused on the feasibility assessment of a novel technology of metasurfaces in order to design a spectropolarimeter with the thickness of a few micrometers integrated on the detector array. The motivation behind the research is miniaturization of state-of-the-art spectropolarimeters. The requirements for the instrument are...

To fulfil the increase in global demand of clean energy, the dimensions of offshore wind turbines are expected to increase with greater capacities and move further offshore in deep waters. For these conditions, the diameter of the monopile will have to increase beyond current manufacturing capacities. The slip joint connection can provide a...

Persistent surveillance is an urgent proficiency. For security, surveillance cameras are a strong asset as they support the automatic tracking of people and are directly interpretable by a human operator. Radar on the other hand can be used under a broad range of circumstances: radar can penetrate mediums such as clouds, fogs, mist and snow, and...

The Eigenmode Distortion (EMD) analysis is a novel method for objective evaluation of simulator motion cueing fidelity, developed at Delft University of Technology. It expresses the distortions of the perceived motion cues in terms of the dynamic modes of a linear model of the vehicle and has been applied to assess rotorcraft simulations. This...

The consortium Projectorganisatie Uitbreiding Maasvlakte (PUMA), consisting out of Van Oord and Boskalis, constructed a hard sea defence for the protection of Maasvlakte 2, which is the expansion of the Port of Rotterdam. This hard sea defence consists of a Dynamic Rock Slope (DRS) with a Block Dam (BD) situated in front of it. The BD is build...

Space mission complexity is constantly increasing, therefore there is a growing demand for highly accurate and fast trajectory design and simulation tools. Some astrodynamics applications, such as planetary protection simulations, require millions of total simulated years to quantify certain probabilities with a high confidence level. It is...

Firing industrial installations, like boilers, with a cogeneration gas turbine instead of a classic burner have several beneficial aspects. A cogeneration system allows for a more efficient utilization of energy and lowered emissions. What makes such a system especially interesting is that the revenue of the generated electrical power can...

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Replacing teeth is required, since neighboring teeth can move and reposition in undesired positions if there is an empty space. A dental implant consists of three parts, a dental prosthetic (crown), an abutment and the implant which is fixated in the bone.

Dental implants are placed...

Instrumented treadmills and perturbations of the treadmill are commonly used for gait analysis and can provide real time biomechanical information and feedback of gait patterns and abnormalities. Force plates in the treadmill are combined with motion capture data and fed into a musculoskeletal model. High accuracy of the force plates is needed...

Globalization is heaving its impact on many field. For the field of warehousing this development, in combination with the actual shortage of labor, means that many warehouse owners are forced to reduce their warehouse costs in order to stay competitive with warehouses in low-wage countries. On the other side the warehouse owners are pulled by...
