Offshore Wind Farm Design
This course makes students familiar with the design of offshore wind farms in general and focusses on the foundation design in particular. The course is based on actual cases of real offshore wind farms that have been built recently or will be built in the near future. Study Goals: Those succesfully completing this course will be able to work in and lead a team designing the civil works of an offshore wind farm.
The course treats the design of offshore mooring systems literally from the ground up: Starting with the anchor and its soils mechanics in the sea bed, via the mechanics of a single mooring line and system of lines. The course concludes by touching on other mooring concepts and the dynamic behavior of the moored object as a non-linear mechanical system. Classroom teaching is augmented by laboratory demonstrations and (when possible) a relevant excursion. Study Goals: The classes are set up to gi

The course topics are: ensemble theory, non-interacting particles (quantum and classical), interacting particles (quantum and
Biomedical Engineering Design
This course presents a design philosophy and a design approach, dedicated to rehabilitation technology. This field was selected because of human-machine interaction is inherent and vital. Illustrative examples will be discussed by their entire design proces. Study Goals: The student must be able to: 1. Make a Problem Analysis of a given assignment in the field of medical or rehabilitation technology; identify the underlying cause of the problem as presented in the assignment; translate the resul
Technology Dynamics for Sustainable Innovation
Conducting innovative research is working on the edge of the known and the unknown. In creating new technology the result is never guaranteed. Society faces a tremendous challenge in order to develop in a more sustainable way. What role is there for technology in this process of change? How could we stimulate innovations in technological systems? Study Goals: At the end of the course the student is able to analyse dynamic processes of technological change within industrial corporations. The stud
Technology Dynamics and Transition Management
This version of the subject Technology Dynamics and Transition Management was tought in co-operation with the Harbin Institute of Technology in China. At the heart of this module lies a model of technology development from a social perspective, which will be applied to water problems in present-day China. Study Goals: After following the course the student is: ...able to identify and redefine technology-related problems in terms of dynamic socio-technological systems, i.e. problems in which deve
Lichen World 3 : Raw Data
This package contains the raw data sets that are used in the Biodiversity Simulator (found in the full version of 'Lichen World'), which samples the gravestones by 'throwing' quadrats of different sizes, and which provides data that are used to plot a variety of different species diversity indices and abundance models. Background information is supplied on the area of Yorkshire and the churchyards where the original study was carried out.

Cavitation on Ship Propellers
Summary: Cavitation is the transition of a fluid into vapour due to local reduction of pressure which is generated by high local flow velocities. The transition of a fluid into vapour also occurs during cooking of water by an increase of the local temperature. The term cavitation is generally reserved for conditions in which the temperature of the bulk fluid is not changed. Although cavitation can occur in many situations this course focuses on ship hydrodynamics and ship propellers. The course
TPM Minors and Electives
Minors and electives: the ideal opportunity to expand your horizons and increase your value on the job market You can expand your knowledge with subjects that are not taught as part of your own study programme by following electives or minors. TU Delft offers minors in areas such as Technical Business Management, Economics and Innovation or Product Design. Some minors offer an ideal way to prepare for a Master’s programme other than the Master’s that follows on from your Bachelor’s. Ta

Anthropology 135A: Religion & Social Order
This course is an anthropological exploration of religions in diverse cultural and historical contexts. Our focus will be on relations of power, social order, social change, gender, and the role that religion plays in modernity, transnationalism, and globalization. We will investigate the performance of rites and rituals, and the cultural expressions of religious beliefs and practices. Through comparative and critical strategies, we will look at how religion interacts with, and is embedded in
Political Science 129: Latinos & 2008 Election
This course analyzes the strategies used by Latinos to influence outcomes in the 2008 Elections as well as efforts by candidates, campaigns, and political parties to mobilize Latino voters. We will use 2008 as a case study to analyze the broader influence of Latinos on U.S. electoral politics and to evaluate how the structure of contemporary U.S. elections benefits cohesive electorates and disadvantages more marginalized populations. The class will be organized around three broad themes. First

Data Mining Application in Higher Learning Institutions
One of the biggest challenges that higher learning institutions face today is to improve the quality of managerial decisions. The managerial decision making process becomes more complex as the complexity of educational entities increase. Educational institute seeks more efficient technology to better manage and support decision making procedures or assist them to set new strategies and plan for a better management of the current processes. One way to effectively address the challenges for improv
Supporting emergence of threaded learning conversations through augmenting Interactional and Sequent
In this article, we propose a structure of threaded learning conversations taking place in virtual learning communities. This new structure aims at facilitating the emergence of learning conversations in these learning communities. These threaded conversations take place in a forum-type tool that uses a tree data structure composed of threads to organize group communication. We identify two situations which discourage the emergence of the learning conversations taking place in threaded based too
