In the past 40 years, an incomprehensible 8,3 billion metric tons of plastic has been produced and is primarily being discarded and incinerated, instead of being recycled. Only 10 per cent of this total amount has been recycled to date, therefore it was decided to focus on recycling of plastic waste to reduce plastic pollution which negatively...

Introduction:  Despite the vast amount of optimization algorithms, radiotherapy treatment planning remains a manual, time-consuming and iterative process. To increase plan standardization, we clinically use Pinnacle's autoplanner for several disease sites. However, this introduces new challenges: first, the autoplanner is not perfect and still...

Third generation sequencing machines produce reads with tens of thousands of base pairs.
To perform de novo assembly, all reads must be compared with every other read to find overlaps.
Finding overlaps with the optimal Smith-Waterman is not feasible, since the complexity of Smith-Waterman is quadratic with the length of the reads.

EX-CORE, a novel foam core material developed by Donkervoort Automobielen B.V., allows the creation of complexly shaped sandwich structures in a one-shot out-of-autoclave manufacturing process. Products with small tolerances and high surface quality on all surfaces can be obtained. The EX-CORE technology has achieved its intended goal at...

The boundary layer transition location is a crucial design parameter in aerodynamics. The computational prediction of boundary layer transition in engineering applications is typically based on empirical models. These models require experimental measurements for calibration and validation purposes. For unsteady aerodynamic processes, the range...

Coastal facilities such as desalination plant or a nuclear power plant need a continuous discharge of salty water to carry out their functions. Hereby an intake structure, such as a velocity cap, can be used to take in water from the sea. These intakes are open seafloor founded constructions mounted at a water depth ranging between 10 and 20...

Fluid structure interactions are present everywhere, and are of crucial importance in the development of new concepts in the aerospace industry. Their study through numerical approaches such as CFD are of great interest for this sector, and understanding how to control them is key to the evolution of the industry. In this work, we present an...

In June 2015, MX3D announced that they were planning on building a fully functional 3D printed stainless steel bridge. The bridge will be placed on the Oudezijds Achterbrugwal located in the red light district. Because the bridge is pushing construction and modelling techniques, the bridge will also be fitted with a sensor network. The sensors...

The design process of the Zeker app is a graduation project of the TU Delft faculty of Industrial Design Engineering in collaboration with Capgemini Invent. Capgemini Invent is evoked by the increased safety measure in the pharmaceutical supply chain. The European legislation: The Falsified Medicine Directive, ensures additional serialisation of...

The Particle Finite Element Method is a numerical tool that has been introduced more than a decade ago for the solution of engineering problems involving large deformations.
The method falls under the category of mesh-based particle methods, meaning that all information is stored on moving particles that represent the domain under analysis...

The automotive industry is continuously improving the safety and comfort of the vehicles. To improve the safety and comfort of the vehicle more focus is put on improving driver assistance systems and also on making the vehicles more autonomous. In order for the safety systems to work properly and also to drive autonomously, it becomes essential...

Semi-supervised algorithms have been shown to possibly have a worse performance than the corresponding supervised model. This may be due to a violation of the assumptions on the data that are introduced in most classification systems. We study an approach that was previously shown to have guarantees of improvement for the LDA classifier in terms...

Nine COF designs have been selected for their porosity, surface area and pore surface chemistry, synthesized or reproduced via a solvothermal method with different degrees of success in terms of crystallinity and porosity. Through various spectroscopy techniques (IR, Raman, XPS), together with imaging tools (SEM, TEM) and system specific...

Previous years have seen a rise in the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Reaching a large endurance and range while being able to perform Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) landings allows a broad range of applications. For this purpose the DelftaCopter (DC) was developed, a tilt-body tailsitter UAV. It hovers using a single helicopter...

As facilities in the Dutch North Sea are approaching the end of their production life, the focus shifts from the developing to the decommissioning of facilities. The legislation on offshore pipeline decommissioning in the Dutch North Sea is currently unclear. The Minister can decide whether pipelines are to be removed or are allowed in situ. In...

Background: The domain of Reverse Logistics, which is lately coming more in the forefront, will serve as the focal point of this project. In the electronics industry, the importance of facilitating safe movements is constantly increasing. In order to prevent escalating the chances of damage, products have to be transported with adequate...

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), also known as brittle bone disease, affects 1 in 10.000 births. This disease is characterized by skeletal dysplasias, bone fragility and many secondary health issues. It is a heritable disorder affecting collagen type I, which is an essential protein in bone tissue. Post-translational overmodifications in collagen...

Conceptual hydrological model parameters represent characteristics of a catchment. They are an integration of spatial heterogeneous parts of the system. Finding adequate parameter values based on field observations, which represents the heterogeneity of a catchment on the spatial resolution and scale of the model, is considered challenging since...

This thesis presents the results of a design optimisation of an inducer for a rocket engine turbopump. Its main goal was to optimise a shape of the inducer blades to enlarge an operating range of the entire pump that is limited by cavitation. The blade was parameterised with four parameters: sweep angle, sweep radius, incidence angle and blade...
