In the winter of 2014 upon 2015 the Hondsbossche dike, between Petten and Camperduin in the Netherlands, has been transformed into a dune area through sand replenishment at the seaside of the dike. The area inland has been appointed as a Natura-2000 area because of the highly appreciated ecological value. A reduction of saltwater seepage would...

Refactoring is the process of improving the structure of code without changing its functionality. The process is beneficial for software quality but challenges remain for identifying refactoring opportunities. This work employs machine learning to predict the application of the refactoring type Extract Method in an industry setting with the use...

Modern imaging modalities across many application domains increasingly acquire a large number of very high-dimensional measurements, commonly collecting hundreds to millions of variables per spatial resolution element. That high-dimensional nature can severely challenge traditional (often Euclidean distance based) approaches to noise and...

Despite a large number of in-situ missions, only VeGa-2 provided the high-resolution thermal measurements of the deep atmosphere of Venus below 12 km and they indicated a highly unstable layer below 7 km altitude. Lebonnois and Schubert (2017) tried to explain the VeGa-2 measurements by introducing a theory of a composition gradient in the deep...

Wind turbines offer an appealing method for power generation. In the fight against global warming wind energy helps realise green house gas emission reduction targets. Moreover, given a globally increasing demand for energy, the role of wind energy is set to become even more important. Historically, the cost of wind energy has decreased...

Twisted and coiled polymer muscles (TCPMs) show promise to function as artificial muscles, because of their lightweight, low cost, large contraction, and respectively low hysteresis. A TCPM contracts when it is heated and extends when it is cooled. Different modeling and controlling techniques have been implemented. \cite{VanDerWeijde_2019}...

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a highly aggressive biliary tumor with a poor prognosis and limited treatment options. Various critical aspects of CCA development remain unclear. Lately, the dynamic process of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) was highlighted to play a crucial role in the fundamental mechanism of metastatic dissemination....

Purpose:The MR-linac is a novel hybrid system that is used in radiotherapy (RT) and combines irradiation with MR imaging. Novel adaptive image-guided radiotherapy techniques are developed for this machine. However, new qualityassurance (QA) techniques are required that check if the (adapted) planned radiation dose is the same as the dose given...

In conditionally automated driving, drivers should be free to engage in non-driving-related tasks until warned by the system to take over. Over-reliance on automation can lead to dangerous driving behaviour such as engagement in non-related driving tasks during the transition phase and delayed response to take over requests. Take-over time and...

Over the last years, humanity has realised that the current ways of production, distribution and consumption are putting an enormous burden on our planet. One of the most efficient ways to reduce energy consumption is to insulate the entire exterior of the house, including walls and roof, which has proven to be economically viable for areas with...

The Holocaust is one of the most horrendous events in history, therefore people should be educated on the topic to create remembrance. Museums are the designated places for this; however, traditional museums are not most suited. According to neurophysiology, re-imagining and emotional connection are most important to make people remember. New...

We live in a society in which we rely heavily on energy. We need it everywhere and made great advancements which allow us to bring energy with us wherever we go; one of these advancements are batteries. In order to be less dependent and generate our energy locally when needed this project focusses on this topic. Creating a design framework which...

Integrated circuits (ICs) are susceptible to damage by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), which necessitates protection diodes. However, these diodes can cause leakage currents in the range of picoamperes, dominating the input current of CMOS ICs. This thesis presents the implementation of a low leakage bootstrapped ESD protection circuit for...

In mechanisms and machines, elements' motions can generate reaction forces and moments on the base of the mechanism, which are called shaking forces and shaking moments. These induce vibrations of the base, which create noise, wear and fatigue problems and reduce the accuracy of the systems. Dynamic balancing is a solution to eliminate these...

For the far majority of current photovoltaic devices, photons with an energy below 1.1eV are not utilized. Adding a Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) processed germanium bottom cell to a multi-junction device has the potential to provide a low-cost boost in conversion efficiency by utilizing a part of this spectral range below 1...

Laparoscopy involves the use of various instruments for performing different functions. As a consequence, time is spent in exchanging the various instruments, adding to the overall operation time. In order to reduce this overall operation time and solve this problem, the number of instrument exchanges need to be reduced. Reducing the number of...

Microgrids are a promising tool that can help transition the electricity grid towards a smart grid. They can provide significant benefits to the power grid in the form of increased reliability and flexibility. The microgrid controller sets the electricity consumption and generation of all controllable devices within the microgrid and controls...

In this report, the tidal method is used to estimate hydraulic aquifer parameters. The principle of the tidal method is to use head fluctuations in observation wells, caused by tidal motion in a sea or river, to determine regional hydrological characteristics of an aquifer system. As the wave propagates into the aquifer, the amplitude of the...
