The aviation sector and its associated activities contribute to climate change, damage to the environment, community noise, and local air pollution. As a consequence it affects the health and quality of life of citizens that live close to airports, and through climate change every person on earth. To reduce the impact of air travel and thereby...

Algorithms are all around us. Based on large amounts of data and through automated decision-making processes, they increasingly exercise power over us. As a way of governing this power, we should be able to hold these algorithms and those responsible for implementing them accountable. This research posed the following research question: How can...

Crew of small fast ships often experience exces- sive vertical accelerations when sailing in waves, leading to discomfort and injuries. In an attempt to avoid this, in good visibility experienced operators reduce speed voluntarily when they anticipate that the next vertical peak acceleration will be unacceptably large. However, at night and...

The Defence Materiel Organisation found that using a design margin to estimate required space for logistic systems (e.g. staircases, hallways) during the concept exploration design phase is insufficient and impractical. A more educated estimation of required space for logistic systems is hard, because the configuration of systems is varied...

Nowadays an increasing number of offshore wind farms (OWF) is getting built. Several disciplines are considered into this subject. The manual and sequential design approach used so far is not sufficient to guarantee optimized systems because interactions between the different components are disregarded. Therefore, engineering companies are...

5G networks are expected to be used in many markets, one of which is the Factories of the Future (FoF). In the FoF, applications like regular monitoring and controlling of components (e.g. temperature) are introducing the need of massive deployment of sensors and actuators. Additionally, sensors which are monitoring time-critical components of...

In the Spring of 2019, Museum het Prinsenhof Delft will present the Mojo
Backstage exhibition, celebrating the 50th birthday of Mojo Concerts. In this
exhibition, the visitor will learn about the developments Mojo has brought
to the world of music, and experience what it is like to be at a festival. Over
the years, festival food...

The crises of global warming, air pollution, acid rain and the running out of oil make the investigation into alternative fuel technologies crucial. New technologies are being investigated on a global scale in an attempt to address these problems. This thesis investigates the use of hydrogen-diesel dual-fuel engines and fuel cells. The economic...

Manufacturing processes often run on a schedule, because each production step takes a certain amount of time, after which a component is transported to the next machine. Mobile robots can be used to automate transportation of components between production steps. To do so, a task scheduler assigns transportation tasks to robots and a path planner...

For the numerical analysis, an open source Lattice BoltzmannMethod (LBM) tool called OpenLB is used. The tool combines the Boltzmann equation together with Large-Eddy Simulation (LES), as turbulence model, to simulate the fluid behavior. The combination of LBM-LES which is used by OpenLB is relatively new within the CFD realm. To asses, the...

The main goal of this master thesis is to reproduce by CFD computations the characteristic cavitation dynamics in a venturi which were experimentally discovered at TU Delft by Jahangir and al. The different cavitation regimes were obtained by modifying the global static pressure and flow velocity in the flow loop. Based on this, three different...

Glass is a fascinating material which has been used for load bearing structures in the past decades. The development of structural glass has been moving towards more transparent structures.
The thermal properties of glass can be used to create heat bonds. Heat bonds can be produced in two ways: welding and fusing. With welding, the regions...

Waterborn transport currently runs on diesel driven Internal Combustion Engines
(ICE). To reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions an option is to shift towards
alternative fuels, like alcohols. This thesis focusses on methanol in ICEs. The
combustion of methanol in ICEs can be done in numerous manners, where fuel
altering,...

"The use of high-frequency stimulation for conduction block of the pudendal nerve has potentially high benefits for patients suffering from non-neurogenic urinary retention. Special care has to be put in the design of stimulation parameters to ensure safe operation and prevent electrode and tissue damage. While high-frequency conduction block...
