My name is Wouter and I was born in Curaçao in 1957. I studied mechanical engineering at the HTS of Enschede (1980). In 2000 I started working on the University of Twente as an Technician in the Low Temperature group of superconductivity.
Since 2008 I join in the group Biomedical engineering as an technician.
Additional to my work I join the student karting club “A la Kart” (www.alakart.nl) at the Universiteit.
Before 2000 I worked at several companies as a mechanical-, development- and technical engineer.
A Fully Automatic Press for Mechanical and Electrical Testing of ITER Conductors Under Transverse Cyclic Load. http://2005.cec-icmc.org/cec-icmc2003/program/Format.asp?paperNumber=M1-D-13. The paper describes the design of a cryogenic fully automatic press to investigate the changes in the mechanical and electrical properties of the full-size ITER cable samples (Nb3Sn) under transverse variable load along 40,000 cycles and at 4.2 K.
