Additive manufacturing allows material structuring, supporting the fabrication of multiple-level structures or metamaterials. Through the lens of classical stress reduction, nature’s cellular solid structures feature stress-homogenizing nodal topologies. Avian long bones are an example. Research into the mechanics of open cell cellular solids...

Municipal and industrial wastewater contains a significant amount of dissolved nitrogen. This is the results of the organic protein degradation and of the large employment of nitrogen (N), usually in the form of ammonia (NH3), in the industry. Currently, nitrogen is removed in wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) by means...

Within aircraft component MRO industry, companies providing availability contracts are challenged by inherently unpredictable demand patterns and complex time crucial operations. Most prevailing academic literature within the MRO industry has focused on availability models or operations management in repair shops in the past. This study focuses...

In modern society, there is an ever increasing need for high-quality Earth imagery for various applications. This can be broken up into a need for increased spatial and temporal resolution, as well as a necessity for decreased cost of this imagery. The Deployable Space Telescope (DST) was proposed by Delft University of Technology in 2015 and it...

The PocketQube is an emerging satellite class, which pushes the miniaturization of space technology beyond the well-established CubeSats, promising rapid design-to-orbit cycles while lowering the cost of accessing space. A showstopper in the success story of nano- and picosatellites are their high mission failure rates. Environmental testing...

Recently published health reports from governments of western countries and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide insights on health benefits of being physically active. Performing physical activity of moderate intensity is, amongst others, associated with a smaller risk on symptoms of depression, cardiovascular disease and diabetes....

The telecommunication sector is characterised by a huge energy consumption that is still increasing. Mobile network operators seek for new operating techniques to minimise their energy costs and their carbon footprint. One of these energy saving techniques is the use of energy efficient collaborations among the base stations (antennas) in their...

Offshore floating wind turbines are one of the newest technologies in the renewable markets today. The world’s first floating wind farm, the Hywind Scotland Pilot Park, was commissioned in October 2017 and has been competitive with fixed bottom offshore wind turbines. There is a global push to make more renewable energy available, but less...

The summer and autumn of 2018 showed the negative effects of both low-flow conditions and bed degradation over the last century on the river functions of the Dutch Rhine. These resulted in record-breaking water levels, extreme low navigation depth and subsequently nautical problems. As climate change will increase the inter-annual variability of...

Current yard crane models used for studies on various logistic processes in container terminals involving automated yard cranes do not take automation systems into account. The operational container handling performance of automated yard cranes are therefore inaccurately predicted by current models. To avoid logistical problems and financial...

In spite of the fact that there are many advantages of alkali activated materials (also called geopolymers) over the cement-based materials, geopolymer concrete has been used in the past for construction purposes on a very limited level. Among the many advantages of geopolymers compared with the cement-based materials is less CO2 emission, it...

This report is a graduation thesis for the master Integrated Product Design at the Delft University of Technology. Carried out in collaboration with Philips Design in the Netherlands. The project is about how to engage consumers in the transition from a linear towards a circular economy in which we make more efficient use of materials and...

The gap between predicted brain age and chronological age could serve as biomarker for early-stage neurodegeneration and as potentially as a risk indicator for dementia. We assess the utility of this age gap as a risk biomarker for incident dementia in a general elderly population. The brain age is estimated from longitudinal brain magnetic...

A new certification approach for bonded primary Fiber Metal Laminate (FML) structures is investigated: using bolts as Disbond Arrest Features (DAF)s to contain the growth of bond line damages so that they can be found and repaired by inspection before becoming critical. By fatigue testing with coupon specimens and model analysis, it has been...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have the potential to make quality education affordable and available to the masses and reduce the gap between the most privileged and the most disadvantaged learners worldwide. However, this potential is overshadowed by low completion rates, often below 15%. Due to the high level of autonomy that is required...

Option valuation is one of the more applied areas of mathematics. Options are financial derivatives whose value depends on the value of an underlying asset. They are frequently used in hedging to minimize the risk when trading in the underlying stock and therefore require accurate pricing. Though quite some research has been conducted on...

In the mining industry, sampling is an essential feature for the characterization of the material when all available material cannot be examined and only a small fraction of the total is evaluated. This study addresses how the minimum number of samples required to obtain a statistically accurate answer. This is important since less sample...

Manufacturing systems are becoming increasingly complex with the involvement of several plants, dozens of production lines, and thousands of different SKUs. Products have to be stored between the production stages, and the export to the end-users. Within this context, storage assignment decisions are crucial in order to reduce the number of...

This master’s thesis project related inflow conditions to atypical fatigue loading of wind turbines. The research was fully based on experimental data obtained in another project. First an expected fatigue loading was defined based on the mean wind speed and the turbulence intensity. Differences between expected and measured fatigue loading were...

As of yet, there is no consensus on the role of the cloud radiative effect (CRE) on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS). This study focuses on the seasonal and temporal variability of the CRE, to better understand the response of the firn. To do so, we combine satellite observations, climate-model output, and a snow model. We separate short-term and...
