Multiphase flows are often opaque. This makes it hard to obtain experimental data to expand our knowledge about them. Even doing small scale experiments is hard, since most techniques that are used to investigate fluid flows use visible light. Therefore new techniques are being developed. One of them is Radioactive Particle Tracking using Single...

For several years T-bolts have been a popular choice for joints in the field of wind energy, specifically for connecting the blade roots to the hub of the wind turbine. Their use is mandated by the geometry of the joint and they perform very well under pure axial loading. However recent analyses have shown significant bending stresses in the T...

Over the last few years, healthcare providers have moved to digital healthcare management systems. This electronic approach to healthcare data (e-health) promises numerous benefits over traditional healthcare. The patient can gain more control over which data about him is being gathered, and how different healthcare providers are allowed to...

Understanding energy consumption behavior provide an insightful knowledge to improve energy efficiency, promote energy conservation, and importantly sustain the human life. However, currently energy consumption data are being gathered by (smart) energy meters at the household level or through surveys. While gathering data using smart meter is...

Digital image correlation (DIC) is a surface measurement technique that can be applied whilst performing experimental tests. At Delft University of Technology, a fatigue test is to be conducted and DIC will be used to measure surface displacements around the developing crack. These surface displacements are directly related to the crack geometry...

Proton therapy is a relatively new technique in the field of radiation oncology. The advantage of using protons can be illustrated by the depth-dose relation, which results in a more concentrated dose at a specific depth and thus potentially less dose in the surrounding healthy tissue compared to conventional photon therapy. However, this depth...

The industrial site of Vosdonk Noord at Etten-Leur in the Netherlands consists of a large soil contamination in combination with highly heterogenic shallow subsurface soil characteristics. In this report, we study the groundwater flow and solute transport behaviour at this project location. Throughout this process, knowledge is gathered about...

Vortex Generators (VGs) are one of the most commonly used passive flow control devices. Recent studies have shown that it is beneficial to use sub-boundary layer vortex generators (SBVGs). The height of these generators varies between 10% - 50% of the boundary layer thickness. However, the reduced height causes the induced vortices to be...

Software testing has been around for decades and many tools exist to aid developers in their testing process. However, little is known about the rate at which developers test their projects, the tools they use for these purposes and the impact of type systems on testing practices. Our work is the first of its kind to identify and classify...

Long before the existence of today’s computer, information and communication technologies, the design of current energy grids has been set. Nowadays, ‘conventional’ energy grids – including electricity, gas and thermal grids – are being transformed into smart grids, which consist of various technological components such as smart meters, energy...

The amount of photovoltaic (PV) systems in the world is growing rapidly. The designing process is however still old fashioned and mostly done by hand. Creating a method to automatically design these PV systems can help to stimulate this growing market even further. In this thesis a research is done
into the development of an automatic PV...

This thesis studies the strategic motivations for large firms to engage in partnerships with young ventures, and aims to design a service model for an intermediary that puts the needs of the large firm at the core. This project was commissioned by, and executed in collaboration with Venture IQ, an innovation scouting company founded in...

This project explores the potential of virtual reality (VR) as a training tool at the crew safety & security training (CSST) department of the Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM). With a research and prototype driven approach, a VR simulation and its integration into the training programme are designed. This simulation aims to improve stress...

The environmental and social impact of the energy generation and distribution industry on the biosphere is negative or unknown due to a lack of supply chain transparency. For electricity and gas distribution system operators (DSOs), the opportunity to contribute significantly to more environmental and social sustainable development in the energy...

Offshore excavators are large hydraulically driven machines which are difficult to control due to slow dynamics, inherent nonlinearities, a varying environment and complex kinematics. As digging is performed under water, only limited visual feedback of the task can be provided by means of a visualization interface. Operators require an extensive...

Sustainable land and water management in Myanmar are desired since the country is rapidly changing. An analysis of the discharge data and an estimation on the groundwater recharge are desired to obtain this. In this paper, the discharge data of seven gauge stations in the Irrawaddy river are analyzed. Also, a method is described to estimate the...

The current architecture of the power grid is outdated and will not provide the means to deal with the decentralization of energy sources. The smart grid is a newly envisioned architecture for the power grid that should solve the weaknesses in the current grid. One application that is part of the smart grid vision is the microgrid: a coalition...

In this report we study Markov processes on compact and connected Riemannian manifolds. We define a random walk on such manifolds and give a direct proof of the invariance principle. This principle says that under some conditions on the jumping distributions (i.e. the distributions of single steps), the random walk converges to Brownian motion...
