Due to competition of host and bacterial cells to adhere and grow on implant surfaces, implants are frequently associated with a high risk of peri-implant infections. The microorganisms that are abundantly present during peri-implant infections are Staphylococcus bacteria and a variety of other less abundant bacteria as for example Escherichia...

The heating transition goals of the Netherlands are ambitious. To reach the goal of an 80% reduction of CO2 emission by 2050, the total residential heat consumption would need to be drastically cut down. The Dutch government is leaning towards implementing large-scale heating networks and reusing waste heat from non-renewable industry. However,...

The Atlantic Wall bunker ruins stand on the coast, abandoned and falling apart. There is a kind of beauty in this scene.

Contradiction between the rough concrete volumes defeated by asoft, ephemeral and seemingly delicate mass of water was the beginning of the research. Analysing the biggest territorial scale -the North Sea- the notion...

Due to the increasing need for large scale energy storage batteries have become a subject of great interest. Sodium aqueous batteries have the potential to deliver the kind of affordable grid scale energy storage needed to assist renewables penetration and power/price stability in the market. Since there are several well known positive...

Bone is a tissue with many important functions, such as structural support, organ protection and mineral homeostasis. Additionally, after trauma, it can naturally regenerate into fresh, fully functional bone tissue. However, several factors can significantly impede the healing process and cause the formation of non-union tissue. Costs for...

Malignant Melanoma (MM) is the most aggressive type of skin-cancer. Current diagnostic tools for the detection of malignancies of the skin (MM cancer) include histological, optical, ultrasound, and impedance-based techniques. The inadequacies of the first three practices are overwhelmed by the Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) method. EIS...

The automation of replanting seedlings into bigger trays (transplanting) has been a major industrialisation step in the horticultural sector. Modern machines are abundant in large companies and are quite effective, but they are very expensive both in purchase and maintenance. With major clients taking these costs for granted, designers have not...

The newest generation of aircraft has seen a strong increase in sensor data generated on-board. The available data has the potential to indicate the health state of individual components based on which their maintenance requirements can be determined, a maintenance strategy called Condition Based Maintenance. Predictive Maintenance is a specific...

Currently, the only effective treatment for end-stage liver diseases is liver transplantation. However, the waiting list with patients who are in need of a new liver is long, because too few good-quality donor livers are available. New techniques in the field of tissue engineering are being investigated to create a reconstructed liver, which...

Wind energy currently is one of the most attractive solutions to help in the goal of switching to a more sustainable way of energy production. To stay competitive with other forms of energy production, the reduction of the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) is an important indicator. One way of achieving this goal is by increasing the size of...

Highway bridges along the coast and small river bridges in mountainous regions can be submerged during storm surges or strong rainfall events, respectively. Loss of serviceability during these conditions can dramatically hamper the evacuation plan and the capacity for emergency transportation, thus it is essential to ensure the stability of...

San Francisco Bay is the largest estuary on the west coast, and it supports a surrounding population of over 7 million people. Human developments have reduced the amount of fine sediments delivered to the Bay-Delta system in recent years, which threatens habitat restoration initiatives and suitable water quality in the southern reach of the Bay ...

This study aims to get a better understanding of the passing phenomena of a rising gas bubble passing through a liquid-liquid interface. This is done experimentally with a narrow column by capturing the rising gas bubble with high speed imaging. The light phase consists of silicone oil and the heavy phase
consists of water with different...

Consider the “efficiency” both in the physical and psychological way to value the residents’
meaningful encounters with nature and build a future-proof green intervention which will last for a long-term and explore green innovations in architecture. I designed a public building as an insect-based ecology center as the ‘gate’ of the Noorder...

This thesis covers the research, design process and testing of a new current sensor for the Nuon Solar Team. Hall effect and magnetoresistive based current sensors are investigated and compared to a shunt resistor
based current sensor. It will become clear that for the needs of the Nuon Solar Team, a shunt resistor based current sensor is...

Language Workbenches are instruments developers use to create new domain-specific languages. They provide tools to rapidly develop, test and deploy new languages. Currently, workbenches support deployment in desktop-based integrated development environments. Setting up these environments can be a hurdle for the often non-technical users of these...

The aim of this thesis is to forecast the evolution of the prepayment rate in a mortgage portfolio. In the Netherlands, people with a loan have the possibility to repay (part of) their outstanding loan before the due date. These prepayments make the length of the portfolio of loans stochastic, which creates problems in the refinancing policy of...
