With the increasing temperature due to global warming CO2 emissions have to be reduced. Tractor-trailers are very fuel inefficient making them a good candidate for drag reducing devices to reduce fuel use. In this thesis the focus lies on the base of the trailer, where flaps will be added. The aim is to find the increase in drag reduction when...

Additional thesis - The exchange and transport of sediment between intertidal zone and backshore are subject of ongoing research in order to assess the dynamic behaviour of sandy coastal systems. How the sediment moves in the coastal system is relevant knowledge for e.g. the Dutch coastal nourishment programme. It is a scientific challenge to...

When modelling fluid fl ow in subsurface, the impact of solid deformation on fluid fl ow is often oversimplified/neglected in reservoir simulators. It is assumed that solid volume/s-tate of stress is a function of fluid pressure, while the opposite effect is not considered. This assumption is made mainly to reduce computational costs and...

In many sectors, companies are striving to involve suppliers in early phases of product development. This involvement aims at fulfilling new market and business demands such as reducing development time, reducing time-to-market, improving product quality or facilitating the launch of products in a highly competitive environment. In this context,...

The role of traditional entry guidance systems is to ensure that the vehicle is brought from a nominal entry interface point (EIP) to the neighborhood of a designated landing site at an acceptable energy state. Such systems are designed in such a way that the landing site can be safely reached even if off-nominal conditions are present at the...

The importance of reliable and efficient launch vehicles pervades the many industries which rely on space based hardware. An experimental investigation has been performed into the effects of nozzle length and exhaust plume presence on a FESTIP axisymmetric base flow at Mach 0.7. Three different nozzle lengths (L/D = 0.6, 1.2, 1.8) were tested to...

In recent years there has been an increasing interest in the concept of Demand Responsive Transport (DRT). The area of application has almost exclusively been limited to road bound systems. Applying DRT as a substitute for current heavy rail services has not been considered in literature or practice before. This thesis is a first step into the...

Patients with lower extremity fractures often have trouble keeping the load on their affected leg within the prescribed weight bearing limits. SensiStep is a product-service system that provides patients and healthcare professionals with insight into their partial weight bearing performance. The current SensiStep has been developed for use in...

To reduce the mortality rate of sepsis, treatment needs to be started as soon as possible. One should however first be sure about the occurrence of sepsis. Currently, the suspicion of sepsis in premature infants is based on non-specific physiological changes. The detection of alterations in the inter-heartbeat interval preceding sepsis can offer...

Reinforcement Learning is a much researched topic for autonomous machine behavior and is often applied to navigation problems. In order to deal with growing environments and larger state/action spaces, Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning has been introduced. Unfortunately learning from experience, which is central to Reinforcement Learning,...

Thermoplastic composites are very attractive for aerospace structures due to their high specific strength and stiffness, enhanced toughness and high temperature resistance. One of the manufacturing methods used to produce thermoplastic composite parts is press forming. Press formed parts typically have constant thickness and fibre orientation....
