Quantum thermodynamics takes over from classical thermodynamics when systems are of the scale of single particles and quantum fluctuations have a noticeable effect. An interesting topic of research of this relatively new field is the quantum battery, which in this thesis consists of an array of N identical electron spin qubits. In an article by...

In 2013, Brabant Water (BW) adopted a new goal of <1 μg/l for As level in the drinking water, resulting in the need to enhance As removal at seven water treatment plants (WPT’s), including WTP Prinsenbosch (As = 2.6 μg/l). Earlier experiences of BW at WTP Dorst had shown that dosing of NaMnO4 to an aeration-filtration system efficiently...

In recent years the field of wireless charging has seen remarkable developments. More and more devices like mobile phones and laptops can be charged wirelessly, and larger equipment like electric vehicles are likely to follow the same path. The air gaps over which the power can be transferred keeps increasing, as do the
amount of power that...

The aim of this graduation project is to determine how Mobike can be successful in the Netherlands in the short-term and how Mobike can be successful in the long-term. To answer these questions, in this project research has been conducted on the users of Mobike. Next to that the environment of Mobike has been analyzed, after which a vision has...

A challenging task in synchronization of multi-agent systems is steering the network towards a coherent solution when the dynamics of the constituent systems are heterogeneous and residing in a possibly large uncertainty set. In this situation, synchronization can be achieved via adaptive protocols (with adaptive feedback gains, or adaptive...

The shipping industry accounts for a significant share in global GHG emissions. Especially since Business as Usual (BaU) scenario studies project that the emissions due to shipping could increase by 50 [%] to 250 [%] in the period to 2050 (IMO, 2015), shipowners face a potential regulatory threat. Major climate regulations for shipping already...

Even though several orbit visualization tools exist, the ability to compare multiple satellite orbits or manipulate time are not readily available with the current tools. Furthermore, most other visualization tools require additional effort or installations to work properly. To address these issues with other tools an interactive, web-based,...

Amsterdam UMC is an academic hospital where high level research is applied in practice. One of the outpatient clinics of location VUmc is the radiotherapy department. Radiotherapy utilises X-ray radiation to damage cancer cells. During their treatment period, cancer patients visit the department once a day to receive a radiotherapy treatment....

Traditional reservoir modelling utilizes a stochastic approach centered around statistics to generate a 3D representation of the reservoir. While the results of a stochastic approach are favorable, they tend to lack the detail that is necessary to fully understand the different aspects of the reservoir, more precisely, the inclusion of...

Allseas’ Jacket Lift System (JLS) is a system which is currently being developed and capable of transporting, installing and removing a jacket of a production platform as a whole. As the Block Handling System (BHS), responsible of maintaining tension in the main hoist wires by providing a constant tension (CT) counter force, is preferably...

Inspired by work of Montagnani et al. (2015), who found that for prosthetic hands a complex wrist mechanism worked functionally equal to a multi-DOF hand mechanism, new work has been set in motion to extrapolate and test this hypothesis. The goal of this work consisted of building a multi-DOF wrist mechanism, while it was crucial to keep the...

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is used extensively in the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease. Deep learning methods have proven to deliver segmentation results comparable to human experts in CMR imaging, however, no successful attempts have been made at fully automated diagnosis. This has been contributed to a lack of...

Delamination is one of the common failure types in the fiber composites. The trailing edge in the wind turbine blades, for example, is one of the structural components where the delamination is driven by mode III under predominantly flapwise loading. There has been an extensive effort in developing test procedures and test specimens for...

Previous studies have investigated the remote appearance of Earth-like exoplanets in the prospect of retrieving biosignatures of planets orbiting extrasolar stars, utilizing the variation of (polarized) flux. However, these studies did not use horizontally inhomogeneous models that include (1) daily cloud observations of planet Earth accounting...

In this thesis, a pipeline is created consisting of two parts. In the first part, the moving objects (cars, cyclists, pedestrians) are detected in street-view imagery using image segmentation neural networks and a LIDAR-based moving object detection approach. In the second part, those moving objects are deleted from the image data and an image...
