An aneurysm refers to the local dilation or ballooning of a blood vessel and if left unchecked, almost every aneurysm continues to grow in size until it eventually ruptures. The abdominal aorta is the most common location for an aneurysm to form and an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) can turn lethal in the event of rupture. Since the current...

As technology improves, increasingly higher resolution payload can be achieved using Cubesats for Earth observation. The diffraction limit prevents the resolution to up to a few meters for these missions and are confined to Very Low Earth Orbits (VLEO). At these altitudes, strong disturbances act on the system, limiting its lifetime and the...

With the development of the inland waterway transport, ship locks become more and more important as infrastructure in waterway network. Currently, there are a lot of studies about the capacity of locks, but the impact of the chamber’s horizontal dimension on the passing time and the costs-benefits should be studied more. In order to study the...

This thesis project researches the effect of the optimisation time interval on the performance of a self-optimised mobile network. The goal of the thesis is to ascertain if there exists an optimal time interval for the self-optimisation of the KPN network, and what that interval is. In order to research this question, the project uses data from...

Remote areas throughout the world often face great difficulties with regards to a cost-effective production of electricity and drinking water. To date, it is mostly done by means of diesel generators which are however subject to volatile market prices, high operational cost, logistical supply problems and environmental concerns. Stand-alone...

End – consumers have become more active in the effort to achieve secure operation of the electricity grid. Demand response offers a set of solutions allowing consumers to achieve normalised load profiles and increase the balance between energy generation and consumption. Storage technologies and renewable energy sources integrated in microgrid...

Standard conceptual hydrological models can rarely accommodate stream tracer dynamics at the catchmentscale. They rely on the generation of runoff through the propagation of a pressure wave and do not accountfor the actual advective movement of particles. Over the last years different model frameworks have beendeveloped to account for this...

The world is moving towards a cleaner future. With the increasingly stringent emission regulation in maritime field and the limitation of marine diesel engine systems, the shipbuilders may start to seek cleaner solutions rather than modifying the currently prevailing internal combustion engine systems (ICE). According to previous researches, a...

World population growth and in-urbanisation are challenging the policymakers and urban designers in finding an alternative way to develop sustainable and liveable cities. The researchers have already acknowledged the use of the subterranean space, especially when it can serve multiple functions, as a valuable mean towards this goal. However,...

The aerodynamic drag force is a crucial factor for passenger cars and trucks, where fuel economy is of utmost importance. While a lot of research has been performed to optimize the design of the upper-body of the vehicle, the flow over a rotating wheel that is enclosed by a wheelhouse is not understood to the same level. Estimates show that the...

In the Rhine-Meuse delta many scour holes are present. These scour holes form a potential risk on the surrounding bridges, levees, weirs, dikes and tunnels. In general, scour holes can develop when there is a local change in hydrodynamic conditions or erosive capacity. Extensive research has been done in the past on scour holes close to...

High Temperature Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (HT-ATES) systems can be implemented to store geothermal energy, residual industrial heat and solar heat. Due to the large temperature differences between the injection fluid and ambient groundwater, buoyancy flow occurs, which causes heat losses which in turn results in poor efficiency of such...

Alkali Silica Reaction (ASR) is one of the degradation mechanisms in concrete that poses a threat to the service life of existing structures. This physio-chemical process is progressive and can affect the the strength, stiffness and stability of concrete structures. A lot of mitigation measures are available to prevent the deleterious effects of...

The beach at Ngapali, Myanmar is eroding, resulting in a shoreline which moves landward. The coastline gets closer to the vegetation each year and during the monsoon season, at high tide, it reaches the palm trees completely. The assumption is that this is due to people shovelling truckloads of sand from the beach to use for construction, this...

The energy demand in current times has increased greatly in last few years. This increasing demand calls for a sustainable and clean energy resource that would reduce the load on non-renewable resources. Wind energy is a renewable resource which is harnessed by mankind from an ancient era. So as to meet this increasing energy demands, innovation...

Implementation of perturbation training for elderly requires a validated measure to quantify someone’s ability to recover
when encountering a perturbation. A quantified recovery performance has been constructed for the anteroposterior

The study investigated a small- to medium-sized enterprise (SME) that had expressed the interest to explore the potential benefits of developing design capabilities. Previously, CM had conducted a company-wide branding exercise and saw an opportunity to explore this further. During a 6-month period, the researcher was embedded at CM as a design...
