According to themselves, Argentinians are living with their backs towards the sea. In order to turn this around, a feasability study has been done to find out how a network of marinas along the coast of the province would look like, based on a MCDA including all urban areas along the coast and a fleet analysis. A final network has been proposed...

Nanomechanical resonators made from graphene are widely researched for their potential applications due to their high sensitivity. Their atomic scale thickness makes it that these resonators exhibit amplitude-dependent damping at relatively small driving forces. To further increase the performance of these devices, it is essential to understand...

In operational airline crew scheduling, one of the major tasks is to allocate flight activities to individual crew members. This task is referred to as the crew rostering problem; an optimization problem that aims to assign flights to crew members in a cost-effective way, while also considering preferences of crewmembers. Flights are combined...

Shipyards these days see an increase in customers that specify combined speed and seakeeping ability design requirements. This requires the shipyard to make a prediction of the additional installed power required to maintain a certain speed when waves are encountered. The additional required installed power is directly related to the average...

Visitors who return from a festival experience an empty feeling combined with fatigue. In this thesis, this experience is called the void. An established psychological phenomenon called the Peak-End rule describes how events are judged by both their peaks, be they positive or negative, and their ends. The end of festivals is now often perceived...

Restrictions on NOx emissions are increasingly stricter. In order to reduce the emissions of a gas turbine, manufacturers moved from diffusion-flames to lean premixed flames in their combustion process. However lean premixed flames are prone to (transverse) combustion instabilities. These instabilities consists of thermoacoustically driven...

Compressed natural gas (CNG) has been gaining attention in the automotive industry since it allows for a substantial reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. Recent advancements in direct-injection technology have contributed to an increase in volumetric efficiency and engine power, but the physical modeling of such gaseous injection with...

The outstanding mechanical properties of graphene have made it a suitable candidate for awide range of sensor and actuator applications in modern technology. However, before the full potential of future applications can be achieved, a proper characterisation of the fundamental properties of graphene is crucial. The aim of this project was to...

In the past, many researches on the topic of size effect on concrete structures were mainly focused on the phenomenon of size effect in flexural cracking. The result of those studies can be found today in the concrete structure design specifications of well-known building codes, such as the Eurocode. Nevertheless, the inclusions of the results...

Policy reforms in response to the crisis were initially expected to dampen future house price increases. Instead, the Dutch owner-occupied housing market has overheated not even five years after its recovery. As this could indicate a structural change in the housing demand of households, models were estimated using logistic regression analysis...

Expanded Criteria Donor (ECD) organs are being used more often in clinical setting. The regenerative ability of the organs might be able to restore the organ to full functionality ex vivo. For long term kidney stabilization, optimization and monitoring an organ incubator is preferable. However, it is unclear which available parts would work best...

As a reaction to urban densication, light weight building is an attractive concept for optimally utilizing the capacity of the existing built environment. A common issue paired with light weight construction is the need to engage in vibrational design, in order to minimize hindrance due to human activities such as walking, that cause vibrations...

From the 3500 kilometers of primary flood defenses in the Netherlands, a third does not comply with the current standards. As a result, over 700 kilometers will be strengthened in the upcoming years. Traditional strengthening of dikes consists of strengthening with soil and requires space that is often not available. Further strengthening of...

This thesis focuses on the construction and optimization of a prediction model for the errors resulting from a model order reduction (MOR) procedure in oil reservoir simulation. MOR is a numerical technique that projects the physical based model, which is also called the high-fidelity model (HFM), into a lower dimension by using matrix...

This research describes the demand of a Displacement-based approach for the assessment of out-of plane behaviour of one-way vertically-spanning unreinforced masonry (URM) walls of terraced and detached houses in the Groningen Province. One of the most vulnerable components of a typical Dutch unreinforced masonry building subjected to earthquake...

This study is part of a project titled: “Phenolic compounds degradation in AnMBR under mesophilic and thermophilic operation: BioXtreme-following up”.
Phenol is a toxic contaminant found widely in industrial effluents. It is toxic to humans and animals even at very low concentrations. Anaerobic digestion uses phenol as a carbon source and...

The Meuse river basin covers an area of 33,000 km2, touches five countries and is a major communication route in Europe. It is one of the catchments with longest streamflow records, with daily measures of discharge dating back to the beginning of the previous century. Attempts to model streamflow with standard hydrological models revealed that...

This graduation report aimed towards the vision „ Transform the needs of the minority into the wishes of the majority“. Children with physical disabilities face the issue to be excluded from the toy world of the able-bodied children. Toys with small buttons, heavyweight or the need of two hands for operating are examples which let children with...

The air cargo industry is a challenging environment due to the high competition between the stakeholders involved. This demands, as example, high efficiency from cargo airlines. Efficiency can be ensured by designing loading strategies that fully exploit the available cargo volume. Unknowns in the booking dimensions and flight information make...
