This report aims to analyse the possibilities of smart technology for firefighters and how it can be used to make the firefighter department more efficient and safe. The analysis phase focussed on exploring firefighters’ needs and the characteristics of their culture. Besides that, the technological opportunities were investigated, aiming to...

A robust and flexible numerical framework was developed for modelling of dielectric-barrier discharge applicable to plasma actuated flow control. In OpenFOAM, a solver was built which solves convection-diffusion equations for ionized species coupled to Gauss’ law for electrostatics and includes a chemical model to account for the various...

Weaving sections are frequently applied on Dutch freeways. Guidelines are present for designing those freeway weaving sections. However, the origin of these guidelines is unclear and it is not always possible to apply the guidelines. Dutch road designers and road safety experts are searching for methods to evaluate the safety of a (proposed)...

The oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface and are therewith the largest source of renewable heat available on the planet. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process that exploits this low-grade oceanic heat. A heat engine is employed to generate electricity from the small temperature gradient that is available between the...

In this thesis we study the optimal role assignment in jury voting. Jurors have to decide between two states of nature. Jurors cannot directly observe the state of nature, but only a noisy signal, that is correlated with the true state of nature. Some jurors are better than the other, and higher ability jurors receive signals that more likely...

Exoplanets have been detected for more than 15 years. In the vast majority of instances, this has been accomplished through indirect observation. Such methods include among others the observation of radial velocity, transit photometry, and timing variations. These techniques allow for the vast majority of exoplanet detections up to date. An...

The aim of this project, a cooperation between TU Delft and Transavia, was to find short-term solutions for the hand luggage problem. A hand luggage problem occurs when the amount of hand luggage brought to the gate exceeds the available space in the cabin. First an overview was created of all insights to indicate the deeper reasoning why hand...

This thesis report considers a research about the usage of composites (fibre reinforced plastics) as structural material of a 7500 m3 gas carrier. The focus of this research is on two different subjects, namely the feasibility of producing such a structure and secondly to determine how the lightweight characteristics of this material can be...

In the ongoing search for (new) highly efficient and cheap photovoltaic materials, orthorhombic barium disilicide has sparked recent interest. Studies have shown that BaSi2 exhibits good electrical properties, a bandgap of 1.3 eV and a high absorption coefficient. However, these studies have mainly been performed on molecular beam epitaxially...

State of the art trajectory generation schemes for quadrotors assume a simple dynamic model.
They neglect aerodynamic effects such as induced drag and blade flapping and assume that no
wind is present. In order to overcome this limitation, this thesis investigates a trajectory optimization scheme based upon Differential Dynamic...

The aviation industry is vastly growing, as travelling by air is more common today than it ever was. However due too inefficiency and lack of communication of accurate flight information between airports, congestion and delays are occurring on a daily basis. While Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) is developed by Euro control to address this...

This thesis presents the results of a developed density inversion tool, which estimates lunar crustal density anomalies from Bouguer anomalies. The tool is run through a number of tests for verification, culminating in the forward modeling and subsequent inversion of synthetic density anomalies, showing a > 97% recovery of the original density...

In 2014-2015 the coastal stretch between Petten and Camperduin was strengthened by using 35 million m3 of sand. At the seaward side of the Hondbossche & Pettermer sea defence a beach and dune system was built which is called the ‘Hondsbossche Dunes’. The old sea dike has disappeared behind the new dunes and is no longer an active part of the...

Fluctuating oil and gas prices, coupled with initiatives toward energy security, drive the global storage market of oil and gas. A tank farm, often referred to as a terminal, is an industrial facility for the storage of the oil and/or petrochemical products. Vopak's biggest terminal, Vopak Terminal Europoort (VTE), has an immense capacity of 25...
