The post-disaster redevelopment of a city is a complex process that requires perspectives from urban, social, economic and even ecological sciences. Resilience defines as the ability to bounce back, but the everchanging complexity of a city requires more than a simple rebuilding to pre-disaster conditions. My research identifies different...

The goals of this graduation were to:
- Develop a design tool that helps designers add additional senses to augmented and virtual reality project.
- Test that tool using designers at Mobgen | Accenture Interactive.
- Build one of the resulting concepts as a fully functioning demo.
- Test that demo.
In short, these goals were...

This project has explored how design can be of added value in early phases of innovation in the context of the startup studio We Are Builders. Insights were gathered from multiple sources to analyse the project scope and explore opportunities. The goal of this graduation assignment is to create a method to execute ideation that We Are Builders...

From the 3500 kilometers of primary flood defenses in the Netherlands, a third does not comply with the current standards. As a result, over 700 kilometers will be strengthened in the upcoming years. Traditional strengthening of dikes consists of strengthening with soil and requires space that is often not available. Further strengthening of...

In 2017, the Dutch government has set the goal to achieve a 100% circular economy by 2050. A transition from the current linear economy towards a circular economy is necessary to reach this goal. In the circular economy, products at end-of-life are no longer seen as waste but will be reused as a secondary product or resource.

The...

In numerical methods, correct geometry description and mesh refinement are a challenge. By using a more geometrically based Finite Element Analysis (FEA) type method called ‘Isogeometric Analysis’ (IGA), exact geometry description can be attained, even on coarse meshes. Furthermore, mesh refinement is relatively easy, since no communication with...

The thought of being secure has been on the minds of people throughout history. Security is the protection against intended incidents. Intended incidents happen due to a result of a deliberate and planned act. Security systems are implemented in order to set up security precautions which have as main goal the protection of all assets present...

Container vessels arriving in a port before or after their scheduled time can cause problems in the container terminal planning and planning of hinterland transportation. This in turn leads to an increase of the costs in the supply chain. Vessels communicate their Estimated Time of Arrival via Automatic Idetification System(AIS) data to the port...

The grasping of objects is a highly desired function for service robots. To aid with grasping, researchers have developed grasping approaches. A demerit of existing approaches is that they solely focus on the grasp finding. A more important part in grasping is the grasp execution, which involves the solving of a motion planning problem....

Blockchain technology is increasingly being seen as a general purpose technology with far reaching (institutional) effects. However, the ongoing empirical blockchain discussions on these effects are unstructured, due to high complexities. Both practitioners and researchers therefore struggle to get to the core of blockchain technology...

In this work, we have shown that AdaBoost is prone to overfitting when the training set contains mislabeled objects. We proposed that this is in part because the error estimate used to weight base classifiers and (indirectly) objects is biased in this scenario. We have shown that an unbiased estimator can prevent the overfitting, but such an...

The world population is growing rapidly and guaranteeing future food security is going to be one of the challenges of the future. Current food sources that provide a complete amino acid profile include meat and various meat-products. However, these often have a high negative impact on the environment and cost a lot of resources to produce. We...

A continuous population growth and increasing energy demand combined with depleting traditional energy reserves puts a pressure on conventional methods of electricity generation. The desire and ambition to create a more sustainable society paves the way for the ‘renewables’. Hydropower or Hydroelectricity already plays a significant role in...

In this thesis a method is developed to regain the geotechnical behaviour of undisturbed quick clay by reconstitution of remoulded natural quick clay samples. Quick clay is characterised by a high sensitivity; the ratio between the undisturbed and remoulded strength is very high. Because of the high water content they behave fluid-like after...

Optimisation of transport networks can yield substantial reductions in transport costs and improve the quality of service for the users of these networks. When optimising intermodal rail-road networks, organising large transport volumes on transport links is key for bringing down the costs per container-kilometre. By bundling container flows in...

Deep-marine slope and base-of-slope hydrocarbon reservoirs are difficult to model and produce because of their size and complex nature. The oil and gas industry focuses on easily producible reservoirs in channelized deposits, thereby leaving considerable volumes in the more heterogeneous external levees and lobes. This thesis is on how such...
