Crescentic sandbars are a commonly observed nearshore feature in coastal zones that strongly influence the surfzone circulations and are connected with the occurrence of rip currents. Furthermore, their spatial characteristics have been associated with the shoreline position in the form of shoreline perturbations, indicating morphological...

Move On is a graduation project which is focused on redesigning the HandsOn game, a therapeutic game for arm-hand rehabilitation which is developed at Roessingh Research and Development (RRD). The HandOn game is a ‘mixed reality’, i.e. a video game played by interacting with physical objects. It trains grasping and horizontal reaching movements...

In a busy railway network such as the Netherlands, more and more maintenance activities are needed to be performed. These planned activities often lead to an infeasible timetable since infrastructure is temporary unavailable for operations. A macroscopic network model can roughly adjust the timetable for a complete network, while a microscopic...

Many fields need high performance time measurements, including particle detection, time-resolved imaging, transducer array channel multiplexing and other time of-flight systems. These measurements are often performed by means of time-to-digital converters(TDCs), that for these applications, require high resolution, accuracy, and throughput. This...

One of the novel configurations that could revolutionize the aviation industry is the PrandtlPlane. The closed-wing design features a low front wing and a high rear wing, connected by a lateral surface. In this research, the rear wings of the configuration are attached to a set of fins. Previous conceptual closed-wing design studies have failed...

The subject of this thesis is to find a way to manipulate the bodily dominant / submissive expressions of robotic behaviors. The expression of emotion is an important part of the development of Socially Interactive Robots. Previously, studies about the robotic emotions usually focus on single behaviors. Because the generation and testing of new...

Wind constitutes a dominant form of sustainable energy that is expected to grow rapidly in the years to come. Increased inverter-based wind power penetration may however endanger grid stability and reliability, if not enriched with the capability to provide crucial ancillary services to the grid, such as frequency regulation. In order for the...

It is expected that DC grids will evolve into large meshed networks, which will have multiple DC voltage levels. Two DC grids operating at different voltage levels could be interconnected using a DC-DC converter. The role of the DC-DC converter in meshed DC networks is similar to the role of a transformer in traditional AC systems. The DC-DC...

Inductive power transfer (IPT) has become a hot topic and is supposed to have a wide range of application in the future. This thesis focuses on the IPT system with multiple pickups in the lighting application. A multiple pickup system can power more than one pickup at the same time and the power consumption varies with a different number of...

Recently, the effects of quantization on the Primal-Dual Method of Multipliers were studied.
In this thesis, we have used this method as an example to further investigate the effects of quantization on distributed optimization schemes in a much broader sense. Using monotone operator theory, the effect of quantization on all distributed...

In the light of the fourth industrial revolution, referred to as Industry 4.0, big data is becoming the key resource of modern companies. In order to safely harvest the potential benefits of the Industry 4.0, a high level of data quality is essential. Yet, modern companies experience poor data quality levels, mainly in human generated datasets....

Over the past decade, wind turbine towers have grown taller and wider to support high capacity turbines. It may, therefore, be prudent to investigate materials alternative to steel to mitigate an increase in tower mass, cost, and complexities in transportation & manufacturing associated with the steel towers. The current research focuses on...

One of the failure mechanisms for water retaining structures is piping. Piping is an internal erosion
mechanism creating hollow spaces (pipes) underneath, for example, a dike as a result of the transport
of soil particles due to seepage. The formation of pipes can cause collapse of the structure once the
erosion process reaches the...

Glacier fluctuations are regarded as one of the most significant indicators of climate change. The expansion and contraction of glaciers can be observed by outlining glacier boundaries or measuring snow lines with optical Earth observation satellites. New satellites, such as Sentinel-2A/B, provide high spatial resolution images and short revisit...
