In order to interact with environments and appliances made for humans, robots should be able to manipulate a large variety of objects and appliances in human environments. When having experience with manipulating a certain object or appliance, a robot should be able to generalize this behaviour to novel, but similar objects and appliances. When...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a renewable energy technology which can operate as a base load source of energy in equatorial areas. By converting the thermal energy of the sun stored in the oceans into electricity, this technology provides a sustainable solution for tropical islands. One of the key factor to accelerate the roadmap...

De wereldwijde verstedelijking heeft onder andere als gevolg dat er een toename is in het temperatuurverschil tussen het platteland en de binnenstad, ook wel het Urban Heat Island effect genoemd. In combinatie met de toenemende opwarming van de aarde zal het Urban Heat Island effect de komende jaren extremer worden, met onder andere als gevolg...

In this report, a least-squares approach is described for retrieving the 3D structure of the electron concentration in the Earth’s upper ionosphere and plasmasphere, using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data-sets from Low-Earth-Orbiting (LEO) satellites. Due to the lack of horizontal radio wave geometries, the method uses assumptions...

Compliance with energy zero buildings is forcing the buildings to transform into energetic plants, which combined with the need for a circular resource conscious economy, seeks for revised forms of a technical energy efficient façade and innovative business models. Due to this, BIPV technologies implementation in the façade are studied under the...

Sand dikes have a sand core and a clay layer to protect the core against erosion. It is not unlikely that this layer fails due to several failure mechanisms, exposing the sand core to water. This can be catastrophically when water is overtopping the dike. In case the protective cover fails, water can flow over the core and erode the sand,...

A large-scale nourishment known as the Sand Motor has been implemented along the Dutch coast as a Building with Nature solution designed for the upcoming 20 years. Given the long-term period of the project, a combination of in situ measurements and remote sensing techniques are currently in use. An X-band radar system is deployed at the Sand...

Sometimes a complex combinatorial problem has easily identifiable subproblems for which methods are available. Often, strong interactions between these subproblems prevent us to use these methods in a straightforward way. In railway industry, finding a schedule for train service and shunting tasks is an example of such a problem with clearly...

Under NPG, public managers have been commissioned to seek out new imaginative ways of creating public value. One such new perspective is the business model concept, which has become a useful stepping stone towards building new strategic tools for public entrepreneurship. The problem is that the business model concept needs to be adapted to...

A lot of scientific effort is put into changing mechanical material properties by creating micro-structural architectures instead of chemical composition. This results in meta-materials, which are future materials tuned to the needs of the user. To change the Poisson’s ratio and Young’s modulus, most current designs exploit mechanisms and hinges...

A recent development on the field of additive manufacturing is the ability to print conductive materials alongside non-conductive materials, predominantly plastics. With the addition of the possibility to insert external components during the manufacturing process, this allows for the integration of mechanical and electrical functionality into a...

is thesis focuses on the behavior of the CD20 building system during an earthquake. In order to calculate the forces on the system, first a detailed model was constructed of the characteristic CD20 connection in Diana. This model was used to determine the stiffness of the connection. This stiffness was then transferred into a model of the whole...
