Global warming, caused by the excessive release of greenhouse gases due to the use of fossil fuels, is the main reason why a switch to renewable energy sources is becoming a necessity. A renewable energy source with a high potential to contribute to the energy needs worldwide is biomass. Biomass can be used for the production of electricity and...

Loss of control-in flight (LOC-I) is one of the causes of catastrophic aircraft accidents.
Fault-tolerant flight control (FTFC) systems can prevent LOC-I and recover aircraft from
its precursors. One group of promising methods for developing Fault-Tolerant Control (FTC) system is the Adaptive Critic Designs (ACD). Recently one ACD...

Maritime piracy has been a problem for the last decades and peaked in 2010. This resulted in large investments in anti-piracy measures, but as piracy waned over the following years, so did the investments in anti-piracy measures. This could be an indication that the stage for maritime piracy has been reset. This report suggests a more efficient...

Batteryless network nodes could enable unprecedented ubiquitous sensing applications, while gathering energy from the environment and hence removing maintenance costs for batteries. However, these devices inherently suffer frequent power failures and reboots, due to the volatility of the incoming energy, thus classical synchronous message...

In dredging there are a lot of opportunities to improve the production processes and to make the production cycle more efficient, especially the excavation process of the draghead. The aim of this research is to determine the trailing forces and to estimate the production of the draghead. Besides that, the goal is to get more insight into how...

A neutrino is a intriguing subatomic particle. Although the neutrino is the second most abundant known particle in the universe and billions of neutrinos pass through our own body each second, it is not easy to detect them and they remain poorly understood. The detection of neutrinos can help us understand various events happening in space and...

The trend of computing faster and more efficiently has been a driver for the computing industry since its beginning. However, it is increasingly difficult to continue this trend because current CMOS technology cannot be down-scaled anymore due to physical restrictions. Consequently, to obtain the next major performance improvement, the focus is...

Ferrofluid bearings provide a cheap and passive alternative to contactless bearings such as magnetic bearings and fluid bearings. The absence of stick-slip and the low viscous friction make them interesting for high precision applications. Despite the theoretical models available in literature, the number of design rules for ferrofluid bearings...

A lot of scientific research has been focusing on energy storage systems recently and there are numerous reasons for that. First of all, they can nullify the intermittent nature of renewable energy technologies, by storing excess energy in times of heightened solar irradiance and wind levels and utilizing it when electricity demand is surging. A...

To obtain 3D information of the Earth’s surface, airborne LiDAR technology
is used to quickly capture high-precision measurements of the terrain.
Unfortunately, laser scanning techniques are prone to producing outliers
and noise (i.e. wrong measurements). Therefore, a pre-process of the point
cloud is required to detect and...

The project is about the transformation of the Klein Vaticaan ensemble in Zutphen. By using the historical value of the site and its communal identity as a basis, the aim was to reinterpret the urban fabric and integrate it in a sustainable solution that is going to connect with the city and bring the lost communal spirit to the surface. The...

In 2017, the Dutch government has set the goal to achieve a 100% circular economy by 2050. A transition from the current linear economy towards a circular economy is necessary to reach this goal. In the circular economy, products at end-of-life are no longer seen as waste but will be reused as a secondary product or resource.

The...
