The coarse grid of numerical weather prediction and climate models requires parametrization models to resolve atmospheric processes that are smaller than the grid size. For parametrization development, these processes are simulated by a high resolution model. At the Royal Netherlands Meteorological
Institute, the Dutch Atmospheric Large-Eddy...

Automotive RADARs have gained popularity recently as a means to sense obstacles and avoid collisions, thus preventing loss of life related to vehicular incidence. Research in object detection is increasingly tending towards the 77GHz automotive RADAR band, owing to the availability of larger bandwidths, resulting in high range resolution....

Product master data (PMD) can be defined as a set of data that represents a selection of characteristics and aspects of its accompanying physical product. For several reasons, these data sets are increasingly exchanged between organizations within supply chains. Although this process is traditionally often supported by non-automated technologies...

A naval submarine has to cope with different operational modes: sailing at
the surface, just below the surface or fully submerged and at different speeds.
Therefore it needs an appropriate power plant. In this research a first principle
submarine propulsion model has been extended with a Proton Exchange Membrane
Fuel Cell (PEMFC)...

Chronic total occlusion (CTO) occurs in approximately a third of all patients with coronary artery disease and is one of the most challenging types of conditions to treat. Minimally invasive methods like percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) show a high treating potential as well as low costs, short hospital stay and fast recovery. However,...

This graduation project aims to design a data driven service system for Swapfiets. The designed system allows users to locate their bicycle if they have trouble finding it. Other data driven services using the information are explored. The device is designed to be integrated into a bicycle light and capable of sustaining itself for its energy...

During the last decade, the focus of offshore activities have shifted from oil and gas production to offshore wind farm creation to reach the clean energy targets set by different nations. Foundation requirements for offshore structures have shifted because of this. The monolithic nature of windmills allows the use of a single open-ended steel...

The beginning of this project was marked by a visit to World Expo. From a study into this phenomenon grew the opportunity to reveal what the world has in common by means of architecture. The design of Expo Mondo was developed as a research tool to investigate and expose the unity of opposites as a common ground in this world.

In the dredging industry, centrifugal pumps are most commonly used and selected based on their operational capacities and expected slurry characteristics. The handling capacity of a centrifugal pump is however supplied for handling water and cannot be applied to other slurry conditions without an applicable correction. For handling Newtonian...

Under-sampling of the subsurface combined with scale differences in observations causes the estimation of geological parameters to be an ill-posed problem. As a result, only a subset of theoretically possible models can truly depict the reality. In reservoir modeling, we capture complexity and heterogeneity by representing the solution space...

In this study we are specifically interested in the role of convective momentum transport in a commercial fine-scale LES model that is used for wind predictions in the wind-energy sector. With this model, forced with the ECMWF IFS, a year-long of daily forecasts are run over Cabauw, the Netherlands, at a resolution of 40m in the horizontal and a...

Outcrop analogue studies has been widely used in understanding the internal architecture of fluvial reservoirs. The Lower Tullock Formation of the Fort Union Formation in north eastern Montana, Williston Basin consists of cyclic floodplain sequences of coal-bearing strata. There a three main facies 1) channel 2) splays 3) coals seams.The major...

Battery electric and fuel cell electric vehicles have the potential to cover the shortage in renewable power generation by engaging in vehicle-to-grid. However, the vehicle-to-grid service cannot completely make up for the intermittent nature of renewables. Deterministic models were used to compute the extent to which the vehicles can engage in...

Valdivia is a Chilean city located near an estuary system, 800 km south of Santiago. The navigation capacity of the Valdivia river mainly determines the present state and future possibilities for the welfare of the city. Since sedimentation problems arose in the river, the capacity for navigation became limited. The ministry of Valdivia...

The main objective of this thesis is to assess the effectiveness of Nature-based Solutions in reducing flood risk in the Galveston Bay by means of wave attenuation. The methodology to answer these questions consists of both literature review and numerical modelling. The wave height reducing capabilities of marsh vegetation, seagrass meadows and...

Rapid hydropower development is taking place in the Mekong river, which is expected to change the natural river regime. Because of the ecological and economical importance of the Mekong delta, the effects of these changes could have large consequences in the delta area. This research focuses on the hydrodynamical processes and assesses potential...

The uprising of Long Range (LoRa) technology for Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) has gained popularity in IoT applications. As LoRa utilizes the license-free ISM-bands, many network providers have deployed their LoRa networks that adhere to the LoRaWAN specification. With so many deployed networks, it is likely that devices belonging to...

Orpiment and realgar are yellow and red arsenic sulphide pigments that have been used since antiquity in works of art until the 19thcentury, when their use was restricted due to their toxicity. With time, these pigments degrade to form colourless arsenic oxide. Different oxidation states of arsenic (+3 and +5) in the degradation products have...

We present a system that allows users to generate animations for 3D rigged geometry easily and quickly us- ing just a regular consumer Microsoft Kinect. The interactive system allows diverse meshes to be animated through the interaction of human body. Traditionally, creating expressive and convincing animation is a challenging and laborious. Our...
