Current linear economic model entails coupling of economic growth with resource constraints and degradation of the Earth. In order to combat these negative aspects and to ensure prosperous and sustainable future, a new economic approach is emerging - Circular Economy. Besides neutralizing threats of the linear model, it also promises additional...

Faults can both improve producibility and fluid flow in hydrocarbon reservoirs, and cause leakage and instabilities in sealing layers. For this reason it is of importance to create a multiscale understanding of the drivers behind deformation, and how deformation is accommodated. Carbonates have always been of interest to the oil and gas industry...

“Heating and cooling remain neglected areas of energy policy and technology, but their decarbonisation is a fundamental element of a low-carbon economy.” (IEA, 2012). In The Netherlands the total heat demand needs to be reduced and the heat provision needs to become more sustainable (Kamp, 2015). By 2021, municipalities therefore need to have...

Fibre metal laminates (FML) are manufactured by stacking metal sheets and fibre reinforced prepreg in an alternating fashion, and curing it in an autoclave. The most well-known FML is Glare, which has been successfully applied on Airbus A380 for its fuselage skin. It consists of aluminium sheets and glass fibre prepregs. FMLs have a better...

The increasing seismic activity observed in the last few years in the northern part of the Netherlands (Groningen region) due to geo-resources exploitation raised the need of assessing the current building stock, which is mainly made of low-rise unreinforced masonry structures.
In this thesis the performance of the equivalent frame...

Epoxy resins are increasingly used in critical structural components with widespread applications in the transportation, construction and energy industries. The wind energy sector is one of the fastest growing commercial markets for epoxy resins, meaning that the structural behaviour of epoxy resins is becoming a key area of research, especially...

Loss of control is considered as the primary cause of fatal accidents in aviation, which occurs when the aircraft has left the safe flight envelope. To reduce loss-of-control-related accidents, it is important to estimate the safe flight envelope at the current flight condition and integrate it into flight control system design. This task is...

In the Netherlands flood protection is immensely important for the safety of the nation. The shocking outcome of the 1953 flooding proves this point. In modern days, the development of socioeconomic and climate change factors casts doubt on the effectiveness of conventional approaches to flood risk management. Consequently, this project explored...

Right before the actual loading of a ship at the quay of steel production company Tata Steel IJmuiden starts, the ship management has to agree upon the stowage plan containing the stowage method and order. However, the company experienced the stowage plan approval was more often accompanied by complex discussion with the ship management. This is...

In the Netherlands, 2,5 million people are low-literate, which means they have trouble with reading, writing, numeracy or digital skills. As a result, they can experience difficulty with everyday tasks such as making a grocery list or taking public transport. Low-literacy negatively impacts both the individual as well as society. Despite efforts...

Many cities are embracing ICT and other technological innovations as a development strategy. Governments gather and distribute open data as they see sharing data as a responsibility of a transparent government. However, the representation of this data is typically hard to understand and difficult to use. The main problem that open data systems...

Innovation is one of the most important aspects in both the business and the design environment, because of one reason: everything changes. Markets are never stable, customers’ needs and wishes change and technology evolves. This leaves companies with the option to either adapt to the ever-changing conditions they are exposed to or to be changed...

In interplanetary space missions, it is convenient to have a second departure opportunity in case the first is missed. Two distinct approaches to minimizing the maximum of the two Delta-V budgets of such a trajectory pair, are developed. The first (‘a priori’) approach optimizes the variables of both trajectories at once. The second (‘a...

The high specific strength and stiffness of composite materials have resulted in a widespread introduction of composite structures in the commercial aviation industry. Although composite materials offer the possibility to design lightweight structures, they also suffer from complex failure modes of which damage progression is badly understood....

Aerodynamics investigations in speed sports generally consist of measurements of aerodynamic loads through wind tunnel experiments. Lately, a new technique has emerged, known as the Ring of Fire. It is the only drag measurement technique capable of retrieving flow field data on-site, by using Large-Scale PIV. In this Ring-of-Fire project a Low...

Harsh market conditions make optimising the performance in shipping more and more important. Shipping companies are becoming more and more data driven due to developments in data systems and these harsh market conditions. The goal of this research is to determine how and how much added value can be realised through shipping performance...

Festivals are a growing trend, and although being a temporary event, most festivals have vast material flows with a large negative impact on the environment. The Dutch festival Lowlands, a three-day event, for example uses 300.000 kwh of electricity generated by diesel-fuelled generators, 10.000 m3 water and 500.000 kg of solid waste (Amsterdam...
