The usage of carbon-fibre reinforced composite materials in the aerospace industry has been steadily increasing due to their light weight solution with respect to their metal counterparts. Using thermoplastic resins gives rise to induction heating as a joining technique. Induction heating can be applied by utilising the inherent material...

An important aspect of structural design is to obtain adequate knowledge and prediction of the structure’s dynamic behavior. Wind Turbine Manufacturers (WTMs) design their wind turbines for a lifetime of typically 25 years during which the structure has to withstand a large variety of loads, induced by wind- and wave conditions. To obtain a...

Repository mining researchers have successfully applied machine learning in a variety of
scenarios.  However, the use of deep learning in repository mining tasks is still in its infancy.
In this thesis, we describe the advantages and disadvantages of using deep learning in mining software repository research and demonstrate these by...

When a quay wall does not meet the safety requirements it has to be replaced by a new quay wall. During the entire replacement project many stakeholders are affected. This can lead to resistance against the project. Resistance can be expected when the interests of the stakeholders are not (sufficiently) integrated in the design or construction...

In 2016 Livework Studio—a service design consultancy, on whosebehalf this report has been written—witnessed that the customersof Vorwerk—one of Livework’s clients—started performing all kindsof roles for Vorwerk. The customers performed sales, customerservice, marketing and other roles and did so purely based on theirown enthusiasm, not because...

Service organizations are struggling to understand and change behaviour since it is complex, dynamic, multidimensional and very often not considered to be rational. Human behaviour is a key component in services, as the interaction between a user and touchpoints determines the overall performance and value. Increasingly, service organizations...

In turbomachinery optimisation problems, run time is often a critical factor due to high dimensionality of the design search space. This work explores the use of the multi-fidelity method to speed up an aerodynamic optimisation algorithm applied to axial compressor blades. A rotor blade is optimised in a two-stage blade geometry for maximum...

When we design architecture we have to think very realistically because designs have to be implemented in the real world. Designing for science fiction worlds gives the designers more creative freedom. Because there is no limit of the real world we can come up with much crazier ideas than we normally would. This might not be applicable in the...

Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in cities. This makes them centres of resource consumption and waste production. Sustainable development is seen as an opportunity to respond to the consequences of urbanisation and climate change. In recent years the concepts of circularity and urban symbiosis have emerged as popular...

Deployable structures using tape-springs are a promising option to minimize the volume occupied by satellites at launch and reduce launching costs. The attractive characteristics of tape-springs made of ultra-thin woven composites are their high specific stiffness and bi-stable behavior. However, the most important shortcoming is the complexity...

Aim: This research focuses on aims to explore the concept of shared leadership in integrated design teams in the construction branch. The exploration is conducted by addressing the question of whether leadership styles and tasks are solely performed by the project manager of a design team, or whether leadership styles and tasks are also...

Increasing adoption of EVs in the next few decades is going to present new challenges such as EV charging creating a new and significant demand on the grid. The purpose of this thesis is to create a system that intelligently schedules the charging of EVs while considering the cost of energy and the discomfort of the user. At any given moment, 90...

The construction industry is a large generator of waste. The interest in improving the resource efficiency is growing. A move towards a Circular Economy (CE) has been assigned as the solution for a more efficient use of resources in the construction industry. The aim of a circular economy is to create a system in which waste and energy leakage...

The potentials of glass as building material are continuously researched by experts in the field. With this thesis, glass, as sound absorber in room acoustics is presented. This function can be achieved by exploiting microperforation to glass, which is still a complicated and expensive process today. The innovative concept of a glass sound...

Life cycle assessment (LCA) has been the primary tool for the quantification and
comparison of the environmental impact of product systems. Despite ongoing
development of the LCA methodology, uncertainties are often not adequately
addressed in LCA research. The large variety of approaches to treat uncertainties and the lack of...
