In the new-generation smart mobility paradigm, mobility-as-a-service (MaaS)
systems have shown the most potential to offer integrated mobility platforms. MaaS is essentially an amalgamation of services tailored to match individuals’ diverse travel demands, many of which are demand-responsive transit (DRT) or DRT-like, addressing the much...

The focus of design studies has shifted from a product-centric perspective to a perspective in which value is defined by and co-created with the consumer, rather than embedded in the output. The reasoning hence focuses on the interplay between innovation and design processes. Moving from an earlier conceptualization of design-driven innovation,...

Demand response refers to the concept that power consumption should aim to match supply, instead of supply following demand. It is a key technology to enable the successful transition to an electricity system that incorporates more and more intermittent and uncontrollable renewable energy sources. For instance, loads such as heat pumps or...

Even though emerging city-makers are increasingly organized to trigger social changes, it is still hard to apprehend their real power to transform space and the way we live together. In this chapter, we explore how designerly approaches, such as hacking, making, and prototyping, can empower emerging city-makers to trigger a broader change and...

De ontwikkeling van een agent-gebaseerd simulatiemodel voor goederenvervoer is complex en vraagt veel data. In deze bijdrage beschrijven we de incrementele ontwikkeling van een agent-gebaseerd simulatiemodel voor goederenvervoer, waarin een zendingen-gebaseerde aanpak gevolgd wordt en het gedrag van individuele bedrijven gesimuleerd wordt....

This paper aims to research the developments and innovations in urban freight transport. Thereafter it focuses on the future and implications of robotisation in this field. The developments in urban freight transport from a logistics service provider perspective are based on the constraints space, legitimacy and resources. Governments are slowly...

In this study, we quantified systematic errors in surface gravity anomalies, which were caused by systematic errors in gravity and heights of the gravity stations, and computed their impact on the quasi-geoid model of the Netherlands and Belgium. We found that 70% of the gravity datasets have statistically significant biases ranging from −2 mGal...

In decision and risk analysis problems, modelling uncertainty probabilistically provides key insights and information for decision makers. A common challenge is that uncertainties are typically not isolated but interlinked which introduces complex (and often unexpected) effects on the model output. Therefore, dependence needs to be taken into...

In the horticultural fresh food supply chain network in the Netherlands, a crisis is emerging. The market is out of balance and many growers are facing bankruptcy, in the period of 2011–2013, 50% of the growers were not able to pay interest and redemption. Trust between participants in the supply chain network has decreased. This chapter...

The propagation of accidents among process units may cause amplification of accident magnitude, resulting in a domino effect chain. Several catastrophic accidents occurred in the process and chemical industry presented these features. Hence, research efforts have been given to the analysis of the domino effects in order to enhance prevention...

Before the tragedy of 9/11, the perception of risk in process plants was mainly focused on accidental events caused by technical failures, human errors or natural events. However, since then, the risk of deliberate actions against process facilities - also known as security risk - has also become a concern. Security risk assessment of...

Het was toeval. De archeologische begeleiding van de uitbreiding van het Tilburgse sportcomplex Spoordijk had slechts enkele sporen en vondsten uit de ijzertijd opgeleverd en was afgesloten. Frans van Nuenen, vrijwilliger in de archeologie, inspecteerde na afloop van de werkzaamheden echter nog eenmaal het terrein en vond in het talud van een...

We investigate the effectiveness of the semi-local Reynolds number Re τ to parametrize wall-bounded flows with strong density, ρ, and viscosity, µ, gradients. Several cases are considered, namely, volumetrically heated low-Mach-number turbulent channel flows, a simultaneously heated and cooled flow with CO2 at supercritical pressure, and heated and...

Flood defenses are exposed to deterioration processes that compromise their stability. These processes are called ‘failure mechanisms’ and they are mostly triggered and/or exacerbated by the hydraulic loads generated during extreme high water events, which are becoming more frequent due to climate change....

Flood risk reduction aims to minimize losses in low-lying areas. One of the ways to reduce flood risks is to protect land by means of flood defenses. The Netherlands has a long tradition of flood protection and, therefore, a wide variety of technical reports written and guidelines developed for designing and...

In low-lying countries like the Netherlands and Belgium, coastal areas are often highly urbanized, and buildings are often built on or close to the flood defenses (Figure 2 shows a typical Belgian seaside town). This is an example of multifunctional flood defense, where urban functions are integrated with flood...
