Erosion of the seabed around offshore structures, due to current and waves, is a common occurrence.
Scour protection by rock placement can be done in order to limit erosion and its consequences. Tideway
Offshore Solutions will use the multipurpose vessel ’Living Stone’ to execute such rock placement
operations. Aboard the Living...

In the last years, Floating Car Data (FCD) has risen as a technology that has the potential to replace legacy sensors, reduce associated installation and maintenance costs and offer new possibilities in the field of traffic management. FCD refers to the use of sources such as in-vehicle systems with network connectivity or road users’ mobile...

This report describes the project of designing an interactive exhibit for children in the context of Science Centre Delft to actively explore, and thereby learn about, the interactions of light and sound beams with materials. It involves the application of a directional speaker in a totally new and dynamic way to trigger sound and light effects....

In the past few decades, there has been an ongoing shift from work organised around individual jobs to team-based structures (Hansen, 2006; Edmondson et al., 2007; Bell et al., 2012). Teams can offer “greater adaptability, productivity, and creativity than any one individual can offer and provide more complex, innovative, and comprehensive...

In 2015, the Dutch government initiated the ‘longitudinal training dams pilot project’. With the help of longitudinal dams, a two-channel system is created in which the river is divided into a main and a side channel. A combination of an inlet and several openings between the dams allows water and sediment to be exchanged between the two...

Since GPS tends to fail for indoor positioning purposes, alternative methods like indoor positioning systems (IPS) based on Bluetooth low energy (BLE) are developing rapidly. Generally, IPS are deployed in environments covered with obstacles such as furniture, (partition-) walls, people and electronics influencing the signal propagation. The...

Efficient design of woven composite structures is limited by a knowledge gap in predictive modeling of their behaviour. Fatigue modeling in particular is difficult and limited by a lack of experimental data. For compression-compression (C-C) or tension-compression (T-C) fatigue, experimental results in literature are uncommon. In this master...

Freight transporters use software kits to plan the routes for their trucks. Breaks required by the European drivers legislation are nowadays planned as late as possible. However, in some cases it is beneficial to plan these mandatory breaks during waiting time, such as truck driving bans. In this thesis this problem is addressed by computing...

Automated Vehicles (AV) will be introduced on public roads in the near future. This would result in automated vehicles sharing the urban space with other road users including drivers of traditional vehicles and vulnerable road users. Pedestrians might be unable to distinguish the vehicle type (traditional or automated) they are interacting with...

In this thesis, we look into two different researches with the same basis; information centric networking. Enhanced resilience is one of the often mentioned advantages of this paradigm shift in internet networks. However, this resilience is not quantified in literature so far. In this thesis the information resilience of hierarchical ICN...

Striving to improve structural efficiency the aerospace industry shows increasing interest in variable-stiffness composite laminates. Advanced fiber placement is a hybrid manufacturing technique that offers the flexibility of both filament winding and automated tape laying. With the development of this novel system curved tows can be placed and...

This project focuses on dog-human bond. The lack of knowledge on how to educate and raise a dogs sometimes generates situations where the owner treats the pet as a human companion. Really often, the owner’s approach is based only on the parameters of human well-being and not on the ones of the animal. As a consequence, pet owners may (without...

The subject matter of this thesis report investigates a synthetic inertia and dynamic stability technique for grid inter-connection of large VSC-HVDC connected offshore windfarms. Assuming traditional load frequency control on the AC grid for the short-term reallocation of power generation resources due to load disturbances, this technique ties...

Traditionally, steel joints are calculated by the calculation rules described in the Eurocode 3: NEN-EN 1993-1-8. Effective lengths are important parameters to determine the different resistances of the components in the steel joint. Finite Element Analyses (FEA)...

This thesis describes the process of designing a running game in mixed reality, inspired by superhuman sports.

The process started with analysing the possible design directions in the development of (superhuman) sports and corresponding emerging technologies. For this purpose, the concept of superhuman sports is considered. Superhuman...

Research has been done on the gender differences in the evaluation of nanotechnology by Dutch TU Delft students. The research was executed using a questionnaire which was designed to examine if there are gender differences in the judgement of nanotechnology and if so, which variables play a significant role in this causal relations. Based on the...

The demand for offshore wind farms is developing rapidly due to the increased demand for renewable energy. Installation of foundation piles for offshore wind, however, are accompanied by a serious by-product which is the high underwater noise levels emitted during the pile-driving process. Current mitigation methods have proven to decrease the...

In telemanipulation commonly master and slave have dissimilar workspaces. Workspace extension methods can overcome this mismatch between master and slave. Literature proposes several workspace extension methods for translations such as scaling and indexing. However, for rotations it is unclear how workspace extension methods should be designed....
