    (2007-01-01) Development of a membrane based Voice Producing Prosthesis
    Stehouwer, P.
    In severe cases of laryngeal cancer it is sometimes necessary to remove the larynx (the voice box) completely, this is called laryngectomy. During this operation the windpipe (the trachea) is separated from the voice box and bypassed to an opening at the bottom of the neck through which the patient can breathe. To be able to speak an air valve is placed between the windpipe and the gullet (the esophagus). In this study the commonly used Groningen Button is used. The valve allows air to flow to....................
    (2007-01-01) Development of a membrane based Voice Producing Prosthesis
    Stehouwer, Peter
    Patienten waarbij, in verband met strottenhoofdkanker, het strottenhoofd is verwijderd ademen via een opening onderin de nek. Om te kunnen spreken wordt een ventiel tussen de luchtpijp en de slokdarm geplaatst. Voor een beter stemgeluid is een prothese ontworpen. De eigenschappen moeten nog beter afgestemd worden, vooral de toonhoogte van de stem. Om aan de hoge eisen van de prothese te voldoen is veel onderzoek nodig, hierbij is gekeken naar mogelijke materialen en productiemogelijkheden van z....................
    (2002-01-01) Development of a Multiuser Detection Testbed
    Potman, J.
    A study on the practicality of DSP implementation of multiuser detection techniques for CDMA systems has been performed. This study was started with an evaluation of various multiuser detection techniques described in literature based on their bit-error-rate performance, required knowledge of received signal parameters and computational complexity. As a result of this evaluation the blind adaptive MMSE (Minimum Mean Square Error) detector and the PIC (Parallel Interference Cancellation) detector....................
    (2012-01-01) Development of a planning support system for public transport rationalization in Kigali, Rwanda
    Barmentlo, Henk
    This research tries to support the planning of public transport systems in a developing city, by proposing a GIS-based Planning Support System (PSS) to arrange and visualize data available for planning purposes. The PSS can help analysing various planning scenarios together with multiple stakeholders, to aid rational planning of the public transport system. The focus of this research lies on the transition of the current, often informal, state of public transport system to a formalised, planned ....................
    (2011-01-01) Development of a predictive model for the moisture content in a paper mill
    Dijkstra, B.K.
    In the production of paper, one important paper quality parameter is the moisture content. However controlling paper quality is a difficult task as the measurement of this quality is affected by a large dead time in the production process. In order to overcome this problem, one possibility is to develop a predictive model based on the key variables affecting the paper quality, that are measured more frequently. In this way it should be possible that the paper quality parameter can be determined ....................
    (2012-02-29) Development of a Pro-Poor Tourism Industry in Mwanza, Tanzania
    Rademakers, A.
    Mwanza Region in northern Tanzania is one of the poorest regions of the country. The economy of this region is mainly dependent on two industries: fishing and mining. Since both of these industries are confined in nature and won’t last forever, the city’s economy is in need of an additional industry that will provide the inhabitants of Mwanza with enough job opportunities for the city to sustain itself and hopefully develop further. Since Tanzania’s main export product is tourism and Mwanz....................
    (0000-00-00) Development of a qPCR assay for diagnosis of Mycobacterium avium subsp. Paratuberculosis (MAP) infection in Deer.
    Buijs, M.P.
    Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) is the cause of Johne’s disease, a chronic infectious enteritis, in ruminants. Johne’s disease causes significant losses due to clinical disease in deer <15 months of age. The most common route of infection is ingestion via contaminated pasture, food and water contaminated by MAP infected faeces. For management of JD, early identification of heavy shedders from a faecal sample would be a useful tool in preventing further pasture contamin....................
    (2004-01-01) Development of a Runtime Reconfigurable Application
    Hoogma, R
    Hardware development is an interesting research area. At first only ASICs (application-specific integrated circuits), ready-made circuits, were used. As technology advanced, FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) were developed. FPGAs allow to be reconfigured on the fly. This thesis covers the development of a Runtime Reconfigurable Application. It discusses a global model of an RTR-application along with its associated problems. As part of the thesis an RTRapplication doing CRC-checks is develo....................
    (2013-01-01) Development of a Semi-continuous Set-up for Catalytic Hydrotreatment of Lignin
    Telgenhof, A.J.
    Depletion of fossil fuels and the ongoing production of greenhouse gasses have led to an increased demand of renewable energy, transportation fuels and chemicals. Whereas energy can be produced by using wind and solar power, chemicals need a carbon containing source. Biomass is the only sustainable source of carbon available at the moment for producing chemicals. Lignocellulosic biomass is the woody part of biomass and is made out of three main components, being cellulose, hemicellulose and lign....................
    (2013-05-31) Development of a standardized surgical (osteo-)chondral defect model in the equine stifle.
    Brunsting, J.Y.
    Osteoarthritis is an important factor for lameness in horses. This degenerative joint disease is characterized by breakdown of articular cartilage. Therefore a significant amount of research on cartilage repair is currently undertaken (Harmel, 2004). Hyaline cartilage consists of chondrocytes, proteoglycans, collagen and water (Weeren van, 2010). Where proteoglycan can be replaced, collagen can be created, however the body is unable to recreate the arching configuration of collagen that anchors ....................

    (2008-01-18) Development of a structural element of glass with glass welding processes: literature:
    Giezen, C.
    For an existing facade structure of the faculty of architecture a new concept is designed. It involves a curtain wall with a loadbearing welded glass construction as a posterior construction. The total construction is built out of starshaped elements, these elements are demountable because of the designed joint. The joint is based on the torque bicycle principle. The stability of the glass facade is set with the help of steel cables. For the application of welded glass, expirimental research is ....................
    (0000-00-00) Development of a surgical skillslab otorhinolaryngology
    Holleman, C.J.
    Background: Training in clinical and surgical skills is generally accepted as an important part of veterinary educational programmes. Later on these skills represent an important part of the work of veterinary practitioners, namely diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Nowadays it is known that clinical internships do not provide the ideal learning environment for students. Medical schools cannot rely on internships alone anymore, to provide adequate basic skills training. Surgical Skills labor....................
    (2001-01-01) Development of a test-bed for smart antennas, using digital beamforming
    Kluwer, Taco
    This report describes the development of a smart antenna test-bed. The test-bed is configured as a receiver and can process the signals of a maximum of four antennas. The receiver structure is based on the heterodyne receiver concept. The heterodyne receiver is characterized by two stages. The first stage converts the received signal to an intermediate frequency, and the second stage converts this signal to the baseband. A setup is configured to simulate the first stage by using programmable fun....................
