In this thesis we statistically analyze violent conflicts. The main focus lies on the risk of occurrence of large wars. We collected data that provides the total amount of casualties, for every known war, in the time span 768CE - 2019. The distribution of the data suggests a presence of a long right tail. We have used different graphical tools...

This report gives an overview of the main findings from the Behavior-based Predictive Safety Analytics – Pilot Study project. The main objective of the project was to investigate the possibilities of developing statistical models predicting individual driver crash involvement based on individual driving style, demographic and behavioral history...

Climate change is an urgent problem, requiring ways and approaches to address it. Possible solutions are mitigation, adaptation and deployment of geoengineering. In this article we argue that geoengineering gives rise to ethical challenges of its own. Reflecting on these ethical challenges requires approaches that go beyond conventional,...

Sandy beaches comprise large parts of the world's shorelines and act as a natural buffer for many exposed people and assets that are concentrated in the coastal zone. Many coastal communities are vulnerable to the impact of sea-level rise (SLR) that can amplify the episodic erosion from storms and drive structural erosion. The way communities...

The investment characteristics of wind parks have been analysed, the different risks to which a wind park investor requires compensation, the different models that can translate risk into returns, and finally the returns have been calculated with this model for different wind parks.

Uncertainty assessment and management, as well as the associated decision making are increasingly important in a variety of scientific fields. While uncertainty analysis has a long tradition, meeting sustainable development goals through long-term Life Cycle Engineering (LCE) decision making demands addressing Deep Uncertainty (DU). DU...

Increasing traffic demands and technological developments provide novel design opportunities for future air traffic management (ATM). In order to evaluate current air traffic operations and future designs, over the past decades, several mathematical models have been proposed for air traffic conflict and collision probability estimation....

While the opening of data has become a common practice for both governments and companies, many datasets<br/>are still not published since they might violate privacy regulations. The risk on privacy violations is a factor<br/>that often blocks the publication of data and results in a reserved attitude of governments and companies.<br/...

River systems are vastly changing environments, not only due to natural process, but also human intervention plays an important role. With the many different river functions at play, large amounts of maintenance budgets are associated with river management. For decision makers it is important to know expected costs or losses and the spread...

Highway embankments, river dykes and sea dykes usually have a uniform cross-section and extend for a long distance in the third dimension. These long soil structures are generally characterised by spatially varying soil properties, i.e. soil heterogeneity. Slope stability failures of these structures may have significant economic and societal...

Despite several researches about the hydrological and hydrodynamic system of the Guayas region, elementary insight of the total system was lacking. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to create a general overview regarding floods. Besides, basic solutions are proposed for preparing Guayaquil against floods which might be present in the...

Presently, maintenance management of assets in infrastructure utilities such as electricity, gas and water are widely undergoing changes towards new working environments. These are mainly driven against the background of stringent regulatory regimes, an ageing asset base, increased customer demands and constrained financial resources. Therefore,...

This paper provides recommended guidelines for communicating geotechnical risk. Geotechnical engineering in practice is the management of ground-related risks, and geotechnical engineers are good at this. However, they are often less good at communicating these risks to stakeholders who may hold very different perceptions of risk. A review of...

To an observer, it might appear that anchor handling is a fairly simple straightforward and profit making business. However, with deep-water drilling and fluctuations in price of oil, the operation is becoming riskier than ever before. Besides, operational and environmental constraints, the crew also has to deal with pressures of time and money....

Large investments in renewable energy lead to new possibilities for industries. Such technologically and economically sound projects can be limited by non-optimal ownership settings. The Risk Ownership Assessment(ROA) is developed to integrate the ownership aspect with the technical system. ROA compares different ownership configurations with...

Recognizing that climate risk is a real threat to the environment and society, spatial planning plays a key role in developing adaptation policy responses as well as in integrating the territorial or spatial impacts of governmental sectoral policies. Planning for adaptation through policy intervention will speed up the implementation of climate...

The liberalization of the energy sector transformed this sector into a dynamic and competitive environment. To cope with this transformation and to build competitive advantage, energy companies expand their businesses through downstream customer interfacing businesses in energy-related markts. These new markets are not the core business of...

Civil structures, especially hydraulic structures, are subject to influences from the environment around the structure. As a result of these influences the structure degrades, which lowers the strength of the structure. Several actions are available to lower the speed of degradation and/or restore the structure to a certain condition. Within the...

A probabilistic risk model is designed to estimate probabilities of collisions for shipping accidents in busy waterways. We propose a method based on multi-agent simulation that uses an artificial force field to model ship maneuvers. The artificial force field is calibrated by AIS data (Automatic Identification System). The artificial force...
