The number of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) is likely to increase in the near future and these vehicles will probably be connected to the electric grid most of the day time. PEVs are interesting options to provide a wide variety of services such as primary frequency control (PFC), because they are able to quickly control their active power...

Integration of renewable energy sources in microgrids can be achieved via demand response programs, which change the electric usage in response to changes in the availability and price of electricity over time. This paper presents a novel control algorithm for joint demand response management and thermal comfort optimization in microgrids...

On a global scale, sewage represents the main point-source of water pollution and is also the predominant source of nitrogen contamination in urban regions. The present research is focused on the study of the main challenges that need to be addressed in order to achieve a successful inorganic nitrogen post-treatment of anaerobic effluents in the...

Optical networks facilitate the configurations of high-speed network connections with tremendous bandwidth between the optical switches. Optical switches are interconnected by optical fibers that act as the mediums in which data are transferred using lightpaths. Due to the importance of optical networks to many societal needs, e.g., the Internet...

Wind turbine load alleviation has traditionally been addressed in the literature using either full-span pitch control, which has limited bandwidth, or trailing-edge flap control, which typically shows low control authority due to actuation constraints. This paper combines both methods and demonstrates the feasibility and advantages of such a...

Similar to many Middle-Eastern countries during the 20th century, Iran underwent a unique process of modernisation. This process was accelerated in Tehran after the second World War, when the urban population density dramatically grew, due to rural-urban migration, and the construction of mass housing got a prominent place in the development...

Peer-to-peer sharing economy platforms potentially have big effects on values in society. Policymakers need to develop governance arrangements to benefit from the positive effects, while simultaneously mitigate the negative effects. This requires having a structured overview of the effects of these platforms on the diversity of values that are...

Spatial Networks represent the connectivity structure between units of space as a weighted graph whose links are weighted as to the strength of connections. In case of urban spatial networks, the units of space correspond closely to streets and in architectural spatial networks the units correspond to rooms, convex spaces or star-convex spaces....

The ‘Jane Jacobs Walk’ organization as one of the Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) heritage initiative supported three Jane Jacobs Walks of certified Fred Sanders in the period 2011 - 2014 in Amsterdam neighbourhoods. These walks helped residents to explore resident-empowered meeting-places and activities in their own housing environment for the benefit...

When teaching Engineering to students it is important that we not only teach about
how to engineer new things but also look at the failures and performance problems
from an engineering point-of-view. The field that studies this part of engineering is
known as Forensic Engineering. The American Society of Civil Engineers defines this...

This dissertation has investigated whether a combination of DEM and MBD can be used for a reliable and accurate environment for predicting grab unloading performance. A grab is a type of bulk material handling equipment used for unloading materials such as coal and iron ore from vessel to shore. Both a grab and iron ore pellets have been...

These days, climate change and its consequences regularly make the news. Sea levels are rising, poles are defrosting, species are becoming extinct, the ozone layer is being destroyed and the earth's temperature is increasing. These symptoms convey a clear call to action: the preservation of the environment needs to be of the highest concern. In...

Even though designers are specifically trained to create and build new products, their contribution to innovation in the food industry is relatively small. The industry seems unfamiliar with the ways in which designers operate and may be unaware of the added value they may provide. Therefore, this article identifies the potential roles that...

The housing need of the burgeoning population, economic development and increasing urbanization have intensified the significance of land accessibility as an avenue towards improving housing provision in Nigerian urban centres. Literature in housing provision in Nigeria identified land accessibility factors in urban centres, yet there appears a...

We explore the potential of multi-angle AVO inversion of P-P and P-S reflections from a fracture to estimate fracture proper- ties. Although AVO analysis of welded interface like geologi- cal layer boundaries is common, the use of AVO variations for nonwelded boundaries like fractures is yet to be investigated. We conduct laboratory experiments...

The homogeneous Green’s function (i.e., the Green’s function and its time-reversed counterpart) plays an important role in optical, acoustic and seismic holography, in inverse scattering methods, in the field of time-reversal acoustics, in reversetime migration and in seismic interferometry. Starting with the classical closed-boundary...

By solving the Marchenko equations, the Green’s function can be retrieved between a virtual receiver in the subsurface to points at the surface (no physical receiver is required at the virtual location). We extend the idea of these equations to retrieve the Green’s function between any two points in the subsurface; i.e, between a virtual source...
