Missions to Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) are a growing trend in spaceflight. The interest for such bodies is not only justified by the threat that they represent for the Earth, but also because they are potential sources of extra-terrestrial materials, provide windows to the past of the Solar System and to planetary formation, and offer a good...

In the near future the Royal Netherlands Air Force will replace their fleet of F-16’s with the F-35. In the past the NLR has aided the Air Force with life cycle and deterioration analysis work on the F100-PW-220 engine, which powers the F-16. Understanding the physical system of the engine allows for on-condition maintenance. The same is...

The purpose of this research is to broaden current knowledge of Wind Farm Layout Optimization (WFLO). Until now, there are many research conducted on different optimization methods, annual energy yield calculation processes, and wake modeling methods. But, few papers have addressed the effect of different modeling parameters on WFLO in a form of...

5G, the next generation of mobile network, is expected to be launched commercially around 2020. Compared to the present generation – 4G mobile network, a significant improvement in terms of performance and reliability is considered for 5G. One of the important factor in the design of 5G is – about 10 times lower packet latency than 4G. Some of...

Games such as Skyrim use a narrative world, which is a game world that is used to tell stories. Creating narrative worlds is a time-consuming process because of the collaboration of writers, 3D artists and game designers, the story adjusting the world over time and the requirement for diverse and interesting environments. This thesis focuses on...

Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally. Researchers are continuously investigating new ways to develop and improve cancer treatments. Currently, remarkable progress has been made in immunotherapy. This treatment uses monoclonal antibodies to enhance or recover the patient’s immune system to destroy the cancer cells. However, these...

Accurate diagnosis and treatment of patients infected with multiple strains of a pathogen is a challenging task. The use of whole genome sequencing techniques provide high potential to give proper insight into the microbial composition of human metagenomic samples. Distinguishing multiple strains of a certain species is difficult due to the high...
