    (2012-03-16) Three home literacy environment domains and their relations to boys' and girls' reading attitude.
    Herminjard, Alexandra
    In order to extend knowledge on the influence of a rich home literacy environment (HLE) on children’s reading attitude, this study investigated the unique effect of three predefined HLE domains (frequency of shared storybook reading, parents’ exposure to literacy and number of books at home) on boys’ and girls’ reading attitude. The data, previously gathered for another study by means of standardized questionnaires, was used and counted 256 children from the Netherlands. A rich home lite....................

    Blanken, Gabriëlle
    In eerder onderzoek is gevonden dat het executieve functioneren bij kinderen sterk samenhangt met gedragsproblemen. Echter in weinig onderzoek is een differentiatie gemaakt tussen verschillende domeinen van het executieve functioneren en van gedragsproblemen. In het huidige onderzoek is onderzocht welk component van het executief functioneren het sterkste verband vormt met internaliserende en externaliserende gedragsproblemen bij kinderen van twee tot en met vijf jaar. Ouders uit een steekproef ....................

    Wel, David van der
    Deze thesis gaat over het parlement als publiek orgaan. Het parlement heeft verschillende relaties: de relatie met de regering, de relatie van partijen in het parlement onderling en de relatie met de kiezer. Voor de periode van 1973 tot en met 1994 is gekeken naar wat twee Nederlandse kranten, de NRC en De Telegraaf, over deze drie relaties schrijven. De kabinetten van Den Uyl, Van Agt, Lubbers en Kok worden bestudeerd en gewogen. Daarnaast wordt theorie over de toenemende invloed van de media m....................
    (2012-03-16) Effect of TIG-dressing on fatigue strength and weld toe geometry of butt welded connections in high strength steel:
    Van Es, S.H.J.
    When high strength steels are applicated in dynamically loaded structures, fatigue problems can arise. In most current design codes, the fatigue strength of high strength steels is either not discussed or determined as similar to mild steels. This assumption can be related to the dominance of the crack propagation life during in the total fatigue life when considering welded connections. Weld improvements can increase the length of the crack initiation life and thus increase the total fatigue li....................
    (2012-03-16) Process-based modelling of the Maumusson inlet: Interaction between inlet, ebb-delta and adjacent shoreline:
    Bergsma, E.W.J.
    In 2010, a realignment of the main channel of the Maumusson inlet, France, is observed. This breach of the ebb-delta is observed not long after a severe storm that afflicted the Charente-Maritime region in February 2010; Xynthia. A strong link between the breach and the Xynthia storm is expected: a storm event driven breach. In order to assess this hypothesis the impact of the Xynthia storm and the breaching process is investigated by use of a process-based numerical model, Delft3D. Two possibl....................

    (2012-03-15) Interplanetary Trajectory Design using Dynamical Systems Theory:
    Van der Ham, L.
    Instead of the two-body problem commonly used in interplanetary trajectory design, also three bodies can be considered: the satellite, a planet and the Sun. Knowing that planet and Sun orbit one another in almost circular orbits, and the mass of the satellite is negligible compared to the mass of these bodies, the model of the circular restricted three-body problem (CR3BP) can be used. Dynamical Systems Theory (DST) concerns itself with the analysis of differential equations, as the equations o....................

    (2012-03-07) Using patients' complaints to improve health care quality
    Danen, G.J.M.
    Summary Background: The dominant idea in current health policies is that patients should behave actively. Patients are considered to be experts of care, whose input can be used to improve health care quality. However, little is known about the effects of patient participation in practice. This also counts for complaints management in health care. The repeatedly appointed aims of complaints laws and codes are to provide an easy accessible path for patients to complain, in order to guard and im....................

    Boogaard, M.A.
    This thesis will propose a new method to predict the response of sensitive equipment, once it is installed on the factory floor. Currently, only the stiffness of the floor is taken into account when the dynamic response of a machine on a floor is predicted. To improve these methods, a short literature survey is done about the dynamics of factory floors. From this survey it follows that a floor is better characterised by an SDOF oscillator. To use this characterisation in practice, dynamic substr....................
