Additive manufacturing of smart polymers is a rapidly growing field. Additive manufacturing presents a versatile, low-waste manufacturing method for functional materials. Self-healing polymers are a type of smart polymers that are able to mend damage, either by the incorporation of an encapsulated healing agent or by intrinsic polymer design....

In the course of this thesis, a research has been conducted to the application of fracture mechanics on an othotropic steel deck (OSD). Obtaining accurate predictions of crack path and fatigue life assessment were the main objectives for this thesis. As 3D crack propagation modelling in orthotropic steel decks is an arduous task, simpler studies...

Baseball pitching is a movement wherein an external valgus moment around the elbow joint regularly causes an ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury. A proven relationship between the muscle activation around the elbow joint and its capacity to compensate for the external valgus moment during a baseball pitch allows predicting the likelihood of a...

Welding is an extensively used technology by different industries such as aerospace, automotive and marine industry. Welding involves the temporal melting of materials in order to join them together. The quality of the weld is known to depend on the fluid flow and heat transfer in the material. A way to influence the heat transfer and fluid flow...

The onset of delirium, a disturbance in the mental activities of a patient, can be potentially detected by understanding activities within an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) room. Such activities can be extracted by estimating human pose via a visual capture of the scene. This work uses a top-view depth camera in an ICU room to estimate pose of the...

<br/>This thesis is done in cooperation with Sime Darby Oils Zwijndrecht (SDOZ). SDOZ is a refinery of vegetable based oils. The goal of this thesis is to optimize the scheduling of the Refined Oil Storage (ROS) of the refinery. This is done because within the company it is suspected that the current way of assigning the tanks, that is...

Ever increasing traffic load on freeways calls for smart solutions to improve throughput. With the uprise and standardization of C-ITS, accuracy and latency of traffic state measurements are immensely improved, while the span of control is increased. In this paper, a traffic control algorithm that aims to prevent breakdown at recurring...

Geothermal energy is generally seen as a sustainable source of energy and therefore could be part of the solution for the energy transition. However, there is still a lack of clarity about the conditions under which a geothermal system can be used sustainably. This study investigates the sustainable use of a geothermal system. The geothermal...

In this study, the excavation process of a low pressure vertical impinging jet in cohesive soil has been investigated. Mass flow excavation is a hydraulic, low pressure, subsea excavation method whereby a large volume flow is applied to the seabed through which the seabed is eroded, and the soil is transported. <br/>The erosion process of a...

Advancements in the semiconductor manufacturing processes, particularly photo-lithography, contribute to the sustainability goals of the modern society by enabling production of cheaper, more efficient computer chips. This thesis work focused on improvements to a technique called immersion lithography that uses a confined pool of liquid as the...

Perspective-taking is the ability to see a situation based on the viewpoint of others. In autonomous vehicle-pedestrian (AV-P) interaction, the perspective taken by the pedestrian could be affected by the design of an external Human-Machine Interface (eHMI). However, currently, there is little knowledge about the effect of message perspective on...

ISAR imaging is a well known technique which uses range and Doppler information from a radar to generate an image of a moving target. Research performed on the combination of a large receive array with airborne ISAR is scarce. This thesis is aimed to reach the highest possible image quality for AMBER, a radar with a 24 element receive array...

Deep sea minerals can offer an additional resource to meet the increasing mineral demands, instigated by population growth and technological advancements. Deep sea minerals exist in different forms at the bottom of the ocean. In this research, polymetallic or manganese nodules are the kind that are of interest. The nodules are 1 to 12 cm large...

Array processing of infrasound data uses the coherency between sensors to calculate directions of incoming waves. The Cabauw Infrasound Array (CIA) provides unique opportunities for infrasound processing. Because unlike most infrasound arrays, CIA has sensors with height differences. Specifically sensors distributed on a 200m tall tower. But the...

Phlebotomy - the drawing of blood - is essential for medical diagnostics, but there are problems with inconsistent sample quality, complications and high operational costs. Automation of the phlebotomy process may solve these problems; however not all steps of the phlebotomy process are currently automated. Automatic vein detection and needle...

<br/>To date, many fire accidents have occurred in tunnels all over the world. In the worst cases, there were catastrophic consequences with numerous human casualties and significant economic impacts. In the occurrence of such tunnel fires, besides the primary concern of saving human life, ensuring a certain level of structural integrity is also...

A pilot research was set up to determine the possibilities for using gamma-ray spectrometry to and possible value in mine waste piles. These waste piles consist of different waste rocks without any value and ore that was processed incorrectly. This method, if proven eective, will be used on mine waste from different commodities all over the...

Orthotropic steel decks (OSDs) are susceptible to fatigue failure due to cyclic loading by heavy traffic passing the deck. These cyclic loads can cause fatigue cracks in the rib-to-deck joint. In and around the joint residual stresses are present due to the welding process. In this thesis, the effects of residual stresses on the fatigue crack...

The size of container ships is constantly growing over recent decades due to a continuous search for economies of scale by shipping lines. The growth of the container ships has necessitated ports to adapt, e.g. by increasing the water depth requirements. Many of the conventional onshore ports cannot receive larger ships without dredging...

Currently, the settlements of high-rise buildings are calculated based on two methods. The single pile settlements (s1), are generated due to mobilised shaft friction and pile tip resistance. These settlements are determined with analytical methods (i.e. NEN 9997-1, 2017). Settlements related to pile group behaviour in soil layers below pile tip...
