This paper identifies safety concerns that arise from ongoing technical and institutional changes in the Dutch gas sector. The Netherlands has a well-developed gas infrastructure that primarily transports natural gas, although its constituting features are undergoing major changes. We identify three historical developments, and show how (1)...

An important challenge in synthetic biology is the construction of periodic circuits with tunable and predictable period. We propose a general architecture, based on the use of recombinase proteins and negative feedback, to build a molecular device for periodic switching between two distinct regimes; the switching rule depends on known...

In this letter we show how the problem of assessing structural local stability of BDC-decomposable systems, left open in recent literature, can be solved via convex optimisation. First we give a simple test, based on a sufficient condition, that requires checking the strict co-positivity of a multivariate polynomial. Then we provide a...

This study analyzes how learning costs for technologies that lack de facto standards, such as mobile payment, affect user intentions. In addition, we evaluate how the negative effect of learning costs is mediated by perceived functional value and facilitating conditions. Data used in this research was obtained from a study among 463 consumers....

The growth of the cruise industry throughout recent years and the changing public opinion on cruise ships has led to increasing concerns regarding the impact cruise vessels have on the world’s climate and environ- ment. Cruise passengers prefer not to be related with heavy polluting vessels. In fact, trends like responsible tourism and...

Performance of set based fault detection is highly dependent on the complexity of the set bounding methods used to bound the healthy residual set. Existing methods achieve robust performance with complex set bounding that narrowly define healthy system behavior, yet at the cost of higher computation times. In this thesis a major improvement is...

National culture colors nearly every aspect of human behavior (Javidan et al., 2006). Despite this truism, the concept has yet to be integrated into organizational safety culture theory. The purpose of this article is to bring awareness as to how national culture can influence organizational safety culture. We do so by theorizing that the...

Open data sharing and re-use is currently more common in some academic disciplines than others. Although each discipline has unique challenges and characteristics which can influence data sharing and re-use behavior, it may be possible to gain transferable insight from disciplines where these practices are more common. Several studies of the...

Effects of combined rising sea temperature and increasing sea level on coral reefs, both factors associated with global warming, have rarely been addressed. In this ~40 y study of shallow reefs in the eastern Indian Ocean, we show that a rising relative sea level, currently estimated at ~11 mm y−1, has not only promoted coral cover but also has...

The use of the subsurface and the exploitation of subsurface resources require prior knowledge of fluid flow through fracture networks. For nuclear waste disposal, for the enhancement of hydrocarbon recovery from a field, or the development of an enhanced geothermal system (EGS), it is fundamental to constrain the fractures and the fracture...

Quantum Hall edge channels offer an efficient and controllable platform to study quantum transport in one dimension. Such channels are a prospective tool for the efficient transfer of quantum information at the nanoscale, and play a vital role in exposing intriguing physics. Electric current along the edge carries energy and heat leading to...

The downstream process development for biopharmaceuticals is faced with increasing challenges. A growing market of drug candidates and new molecule families, as well as a rising trend to personalized medicine lead to an increase in market diversity. At the same time more purification techniques and materials become available, resulting in an...

An analytical model to predict the fatigue life of a composite laminate is formulated. The model calculates stresses in each ply using classical lamination theory, degrades the residual strength using the linear wear-out law and predicts failure based on Tsai Wu failure theory. The cycles to failure are predicted using the updated cycle-by...

Methods for gridding multibeam echo sounder (MBES) measurements to equidistant grids are proposed as alternatives to the shallowest measured depth, which is affected by outliers. The approaches considered use a combination of mean and standard deviation of soundings and the regression coefficient from the best fitted plane. These methods...

Research on understanding, developing and assessing personalisation systems is spread over multiple disciplines and builds on methodologies and findings from several different research fields and traditions, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), and User Modelling based on (applied)...

In this thesis, several phase retrieval methods are discussed. Since the focus will mainly be on theory rather than experiment, the structure has been determined by the similarities and differences of the mathematics of these methods. For example, a distinction is made between non-iterative and iterative methods, and between single-shot...

This study aims to use the passive and active acoustic-based health monitoring methods for impact damage assessment of composite structures. To this aim, a Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) composite plate was fabricated and subjected to a simulated low-velocity impact by performing repeated quasi-static indentation tests where a loading...

To reduce the necessary input force of the user to exert a precision grip force above 30 N, the hydraulic circuit of the Delft Cylinder Hand can be expanded. This added hydraulic circuit has to be able to generate high enough pressures and volume flows to generate a pinch force of 30 N with all of the fingers, close the hand within 0.5 seconds...

In this paper we prove a quantitative multilinear limited range extrapolation theorem which allows us to extrapolate from weighted estimates that include the cases where some of the exponents are infinite. This extends the recent extrapolation result of Li, Martell, and Ombrosi. We also obtain vector-valued estimates including ℓ <sup>∞</sup>...

Lighthouses situated on exposed rocky outcrops warn mariners of the dangers that lurk beneath the waves. They were first constructed when approaches to wave loading and structural response were relatively unsophisticated, essentially learning from previous failures. Here, we chart the evolution of lighthouses on the Wolf Rock, situated...
