There is an increasing amount of attention for the application of model predictive control (MPC) for the optimal control of multi-purpose multi-reservoir systems (Tian et al. (2015), Raso (2013)). A major advantage of MPC is that multi-variate system dynamics and constraints of the control problem can be explicitly incorporated in the method....

A method is introduced to measure the in flight flow field and geometric shape of an energy producing kite. The method is applied on beach tests during controlled flight maneuvers as well as equilibrium positions. The measurements of different sensors are validated by use of independent coherence of the found results. After this the deformations...

This thesis proposes several methods to solve the planning of parking and servicing of trains in a shunting yard. Management of temporary superfluous resources and maintenance is a recurring topic in many fields. Trains visit a service yard regularly to be cleaned, maintained, and to store them outside rush hours. These activities are currently...

Background: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is a surgical procedure which is characterized by inserting long and slender instruments through small porthole incisions. On many occasions tissue will have to be extracted from the operation site through one of these small portholes, therefore the sheaths of the instruments that are inserted into...

The evolution of the cyber threat landscape drives companies towards state-of-the-art security monitoring techniques. Adyen, a payment service provider company, has both legal and moral obligations to perform security monitoring within the company to remain an ethical and sustainable business. The challenge is to uncover a well-founded solution...

Citizens in 2050 will face a scala of mental health problems. Future unemployment caused by automation of jobs will evoke the lack of feeling a purpose or feeling useful for society. This will especially be the case for the lower-educated and less wealthy part of the population. Living in a city that will get denser and denser, the population...

When engineers at Tunnel Engineering Consultants (TEC) used the Eurocode 2 (EC2) for the verification of flexural cracks in cross sections of immersed tunnel elements, they found out that there was more reinforcement needed for crack width limitation than for tensile strength of the reinforced concrete. This raised questions, namely whether the...

Entrepreneurship is often seen as one of the main measures to combat poverty in SSA. Yet, efforts still have not led to sustainable economic development. Scholars are arguing that new policies should be developed that build forth on existing values and institutions, instead of working against it. For this reason, this research is developed a...

Coupling between porous media and free flow is widely present in many
applications. In fractured reservoirs, fractures are often treated as parallel
(smooth) plates, between which the flow is assumed to be steady state fully
developed, with no-slip boundary condition. Under these assumptions, the
Darcy law is employed inside...

Reducing the cost of constructing wind turbines, as well as extending their design life, are two ways of reducing the cost of energy from wind. To achieve this, this project tested two innovative tuned-mass damper systems, which reduce resonance of the tower, and do so minimizing additional mass needed on the nacelle. These TMD systems allow the...

Reefers are refrigerated containers commonly used for transporting perishable goods such as meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit. Due to the growth in reefer usage, energy consumption of reefers at container terminals grows significantly to 40% of the total energy consumption at terminals. When reefers are connected to the electricity grid, peaks...

This research evaluates the Pollution Haven Hypothesis for the chemical sector across the globe. It does so by creating a regression model which incorporates five constructs (market potential, infrastructure, factor cost, governance factors and a measure of environmental stringency) to explain the variance of foreign direct investment (FDI)...

This report set out to provide an answer on the question of whether the standard format of a startup accelerator program would transfer well to an internal corporate accelerator program, and, when this was proven to not be the case, it was shown how this format could be adapted for internal corporate purposes by answering the three empirical...

This thesis covers the research of a new methodology that is able to create crowd management measures for hubs that are under (re)construction where business is performed as usual. The methodology contains the steps required to perform a case analysis and use the information gathered to create and deliver practicle, feasible and efficient crowd...

A liquid film falling vertically along a wall results in the formation of waves at the liquid-gas interface. The principal forces in these flows are gravity, viscosity, and surface tension, which are characterized by the Reynolds
number, Re and the Kapitza number, Ka. Experimental characterization of the film flows for high viscosity liquids...

Smart grid systems (SGSs) are often considered as enablers to the transition to a sustainable economy and power system, because they integrate ICT with renewable energy into the electricity grid. Seemingly, there are societal concerns regarding the impact of SGSs, which underlie ethical values. Due to a lack of understanding and thus...

Aiming to enhance the performance of the industrial design process, structural optimization
techniques have been proposed as an alternative to traditional design and optimization techniques.
They own the potential of achieving an optimal distribution of the material through
the design domain, thus reducing waste loss and weight, and...

Autonomous navigation has become, in the last years, one of the main field of research for both transportation and robotic purposes, employing all kind of terrain, maritime and aerial vehicles. An example of its growing importance is the recent development of autonomous driving solutions that is been carried out by most of the world leader car...
