Nowadays a growing concern among the scientific community, and the wider public are pushing politicians and countries to design policies for reversing the course of warming the plant. These efforts are backed up by, for example, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement. As resources are limited, studies have<br/>tried to identify sectors and...

Airspace’s increasing demand is a current concern without a solution. Different research projects aim to expand its available capacity by improving software performance, for example, concerning trajectory prediction and conflict detection methods. This research contributes to this goal by investigating the effect of different look-ahead time...

In recent decades, a significant amount of the research into deep sea polymetallic nodule mining has been conducted on the collecting vehicle and the riser system accommodating transport from the seabed to the mining support vessel. <br/>The topside operation, however, is less commonly described in the literature. This part of the operation...

Reduced-order models (ROMs) are commonly used to reduce the complexity of large-scale fluid dynamics problems. The main technique to obtain their basis is proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), where an energy-based basis is obtained. Such a basis is derived without considering the governing equations. Moreover, if the flow dynamics are not...

Summary<br/> <br/>This project is carried out in collaboration with bicycle accessories manufacturer Widek BV. Widek came with the plan to create a new design for bicycle handlebar grips with an increased ergonomic value compared to the currently available alternatives. The origination of this plan lies with the release of a paper containing new...

This paper investigates the cost­-benefit, payload performance and technical feasibility of green storable upper stage design concepts on their potential implementation with existing launchers. Since the demand for reliable, safe, and cost­-effective transport to space is growing, it is necessary to find sustain­able rocket propellant solutions....

In 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a resolution to reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses of maritime shipping in the near future. A reduction of 50% in CO2-emissions is the goal for the year 2050 in comparison to 2008. Furthermore, the peak in emissions should lie before 2025 and steadily decrease afterwards.<br/...

Due to the demand for renewable energies, gasses likeH2 need to be detected with sensitive, accurate and fast detectors. The US Department of Energy has made a list of requirements that H2 sensors need to fullfill of which the minimum detectable concentration (0.1%) and the reaction time (one second) are challenging for current hydrogen sensors,...

Hereby, you are reading my graduation project for the Master’s program in Strategic Product Design on the TUDelft. The research has been formulated from my interest in both customer-centric design and the automotive industry. <br/><br/>This research started with the aim to introduce short-cycle feedback loops in pre-development departments to...

A heuristic method for the operation of shunting yards is created that considers the sorting process of wagons with dangerous goods. This concerns shunting yards where the wagons are distributed manually, and communication takes place by telephone. The first problem is that an entire train is considered dangerous if there is a wagon with...

Pretreatment has become a necessary process to enhance the surface chemistry and morphology of aluminium alloys before implementing subsequent corrosion protection measures, especially organic coating application. Traditionally, hexavalent-chromium-based pretreatment processes were frequently used in many industries, but hexavalent-chromium...

Mangroves trap sediment and are the first coastal defence line for many coastal areas. Unfortunately, mangrove coasts worldwide are eroding due to deforestation, exposing local communities to flood hazards. In Demak, Indonesia, a Building with Nature approach was chosen to counteract erosion. Permeable dams were built on the foreshore to...

The world is currently in a global energy transition. To reach the global energy goals requires massive deployment of clean and efficient energy technologies. The use of solar photovoltaic (PV) therefore has to be scaled up. Offshore deployment of floating PV would be a suitable solution. There are currently different concepts in development for...

Learning to Rank is the application of Machine Learning in order to create and optimize ranking functions. Most Learning to Rank methods follow a listwise approach and optimize a listwise loss function which closely resembles the same metric used in the evaluation. Popular listwise loss functions such as nDCG, AP and nRBP do not have consistent...

Certificate transparency (CT) is a system that publishes all issued certificates so that they can be audited and monitored by any party. This allows to detect mis­issued certificates quickly and catch the misbehaving certificate authorities. CT makes the certificate ecosystem more transparent and less reliant on trust that trusted certificate...

Witteveen+Bos as part of construction consortium Nautilus, has prepared the design of a sea defence system in Middelkerke. The very shallow water conditions (h/Hm0 = 0.3) and complex geometry of the structure, i.e. a high berm and stepped revetment, caused uncertainties in the usage of the empirical equations from the EurOtop Manual (2018) for...

The need for smart traffic control has grown over the last years. Initiated by an increased amount of traffic. Network-wide traffic control is becoming a more interesting field for traffic control. Mainly because computer power has increased and optimisation techniques improved. Network-wide traffic aims to improve the overall traffic state by...

The work focuses on evaluating the feasibility of a Sale and Purchase online platform. Drivers and barriers to implement it have been identified performing a qualitative analysis, involving people directly employed in the industry. Later, a concept design for the platform has been analysed, overcoming the barriers and using the drivers as...

There is a need for a more comprehensive sociotechnical systems view on ML. Such a view looks at the development and use of an ML system in practice as being a sociotechnical ML system: "a system consisting of technical artefacts, human agents and institutions, in which a machine-based subsystem influences its real or virtual environment by...

Currently, morphological measurements on conventional radiographs are used to assess calcaneal fractures. The two most commonly used angles for determining the degree of depression and displacement of such a fracture are Böhler’s angle (BA) and the Critical angle of Gissane (CAG). However, conventional radiographs only provide limited amount of...
