Allseas' Pioneering Spirit is the largest heavy lift vessel in the world. It uses its u-shaped bow to sail around an offshore platform and lift topsides up to 48.000t in a single lift. Despite being the largest vessel in the world, platforms exist that are simply too heavy, or too large to fit in between the bows of the vessel. Besides, smaller...

The construction sector contributes to a significant portion of global energy consumption, CO2 emissions and the use of material resources. As climate change escalates with rapidly increasing temperatures, more extreme weather patterns and rising sea levels, an urge to reduce the environmental impact is evident.

A discrepancy is...

Humanitarian crises related to building and infrastructure damage, i.e. natural hazards and collateral damage during warfare, result in many hundreds of thousands of casualties on a yearly base. Earthquakes, for example, are responsible for taking around 50.000 lives on a yearly base due to falling debris and collapsing buildings, making them...

A substantial part of structural damage for conventional vessels is caused by complex free surface events like slamming, breaking waves and green water. These events lead to the interaction of air and water where air can be entrained in water. The resulting air bubbles can considerably affect the evolution of the pressure caused by hydrodynamic...

In today's world, the Internet is the backbone of our society. The relatively unknown Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and with its vulnerabilities, gives malicious parties an opportunity for abuse. By improving the currently known AS relation data set and by simulating BGP traffic this abuse is better spotted. Kastelein's topology generating...

The need to treat waste streams produced during the water treatment processes is becoming a challenge nowadays due to the industries’ disposal expenditures, the limitations imposed by laws and the environmental impacts. The spent regenerant from ion exchange (IEX) processes is an example of such streams. This study investigated the use of Nano...

In the far south of the Netherlands, the erratic river Meuse flows through the landscape. It recently flooded twice in the 1990s, causing much economical damage. Emergency measures, such as a demountable flood wall, were taken to prevent future flooding. And while this solution was to the liking of the inhabitants, the update in the flood safety...

To counteract the effect of climate change, a global agreement was put into force in 2016, aiming to limit the increase in average global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In that respect, European countries are investing in cleaner sources of energy and predominantly offshore wind, which has seen a rapid growth over the last years....

EDS Casting and Forging B.V. (EDS) is an Amsterdam-based design agency, specialised in redesigning welded assemblies into castings. As EDS is growing rapidly, and plan to keep on growing, they expressed a need of centralising their in-house design knowledge. From this need, the following problem statement was formulated:

“New engineers...

Sleep is a natural state of our mind and body during which our muscles heal and our memories are consolidated. It is such a habitual phenomenon that we have been viewing it as another ordinary task in our day-to-day life. However, owing to the current fast-paced, technology-driven generation, we are letting ourselves be sleep-deprived, giving...

In the past decades Mumbai has experienced a huge increase of citizens who, drawn by the economic opportunities of the big city, come to Mumbai for chances of a better life. The city is struggling with the effects that this has on the city. A big part of its population reside in informal settlements, living under impoverished circumstances. This...

Increasing urbanization and climate change are encouraging architects and engineers to use water as building land, adopting floating structures as a favorable solution. Floating architecture not only could help coastline cities to develop through seas and face sea level rise, but presents many other positive aspects among which particular...

My graduation project is about renovation and splitting the low quality walk-up flats into multiple and ’responsive’ housing that allows one person households to live in smaller spaces that have a higher functionality, so we can respond to the population growth into the cities. A number of amenities in a home can be shared in the current forms...

This research describes a new method called SWDD (Klopman, Witteveen+Bos, 2018b), which can obtain information on wave propagation directions from the surface elevations at a set of positions. The primary intention of the method is to separate multiple incoming wave components, i.e. wave heights, phases and directions. The goal is to obtain the...

This report presents the first simple and comprehensive method to effectively compare different infrastructure configurations for reservoirs that have been found suitable for long-term storage of carbon dioxide. Modelling the different transport phenomena along the chain, this study identified a fixed set of input parameters and used them to...

Developers spend the majority of their time and effort on reading and comprehending source code. In order to improve this process of program comprehension for developers, a numerous amount of existing studies have looked into understanding how developers approach it and factors of influence. However, less is known in the field about how...

The thesis is focused on Paris and the notion of power, prevailing in the city. It is more particularly looking at the experience of control felt within it and how it is possible to design in resistance to this particular aspect.
The graduation was developed along different methodologies and themes of interest.

The Free Energy principle represents a Neuroscience theory that unlike any other theory can explain all behavioral aspects of adaptive agents (like humans). The issue of behavior is made computationally tractable by considering behavioral processes as various optimization problems with a single objective: minimization of Free Energy. The...
