Automated vehicles (AVs) have been a dream for a long time. From science fiction in the 1930s to countless prototypes, extensive road testing, and first use cases at present, the technology has clearly come a long way. So too has the vision of practitioners and academics matured to recognise the various potential benefits (e.g., accessibility,...

Without our musculoskeletal system, which consists of bones, joints, and muscles, we would not be able to live. Our bones are responsible for the protection of our organs, the support of our body, and they enable our mobility. Therefore, it is important to keep them healthy. This is done by cells who repair small cracks and fractures caused by...

In the past decade the role of wooden fences, containing brushwood and branches, in efforts to restoring mangroves has been recognized since a vast reduction of mangroves occurred along the Mekong deltaic coast. This study aims to better understand the hydrodynamic performance related to the possible mechanism of wave reduction and the influence...

Residue amplification plays a key role in determining the energy efficiency, area and performance of high-speed pipelined ADCs. At its core, a residue amplifier simply consists of four transistors that transfer a differential input voltage to a capacitive load with the desired gain. However, in order to ensure gain accuracy over PVT, the core...

The overall objective of this thesis was to investigate ways to improve the extent and rate of waste activated sludge (WAS) hydrolysis by researching the WAS degrading activities and mechanisms of the aquatic worm Tubifex tubifex (T. tubifex) as a starting point. The WAS degrading aquatic worms were taken as a model “biochemical reactor” of...

The ability to model irregular data and the interactions between them have<br/>extended the traditional signal processing tools to the graph domain. Under<br/>these circumstances, the emergence of graph signal processing has offered a<br/>brand new framework for dealing with complex data. In particular, the graph<br/>Fourier transform (GFT) lets...

In this thesis we try to provide novel solutions to key problems related to imaging and imaging system. Imaging is usually referred to as the technique for reproducing the information of the object. In optics, we usually refer the object information to the light field in the object plane due to the interaction of the illumination field and the...

The Kirkwood–Buff (KB) theory is one of the most rigorous solution theories that<br/>connects molecular structure to macroscopic behaviour. The key quantity, the so–called KB Kirkwood–Buff Integrals (KBIs), are defined either in terms of fluctuations in the number of molecules or integrals over radial distribution functions over open subvolumes....

The ongoing energy transition results on the one hand in a proliferation of power electronics interfaced devices and on the other hand in a decreasing availability of conventional synchronous generation. These developments pose important challenges for transmission system operators to operate a low inertia power system. As part of my research I...

The prospect of stricter national and international emission standards for the shipping industry are a driving force in the search for alternative shipping fuels, such as liquefied natural gas (LNG). However, new challenges arise with the widespread use of LNG. For example, there is a desire to use LNG cargo containment...

People are engaged in a variety of activities through space every day. The choice of type and location of activities is known as human spatial behavior. Urban decision makers need to understand how land use and transportation systems can shape human spatial behavior in order to design better systems. In the past, they have collected mobility...

Molecular imaging aims for the visualisation, characterisation, and quantification of biological processes in humans and other living systems at the molecular and cellular level. For today’s patient care, molecular imaging allows for (early) detection and characterisation of disease, efficient planning and assessment of treatments, and...

This thesis describes a series of experiments, algorithms, and methodology development for implementing Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) in the field of automotive electronics. Furthermore, a new PHM framework is proposed explicitly tailored for the harsh environment electronics. In addition, the entire apparatus is built, such as the...

‘Falend toezicht’, ‘handhaving als probleem’, ‘toezicht onder vuur’ en ‘toezicht in crisis’. Uitspraken als deze laten zien dat het toezicht in Nederland vaak onder druk staat. Dat leidt tot veel aandacht van bestuurders en beleidsmakers - en tot een veelheid aan initiatieven om het toezicht te verbeteren. Dit boek gaat over toezicht - en richt...

According to Person-Centred Care, as far as possible, people with dementia should be cared for in a way that takes into account their personality, life experiences and preferences. Personalisation is hence the core of Person-Centred Care, yet the approaches, recommendations and tools are lacking for this purpose. Therefore, the author...

An urban plan contains a set of agreements from all stakeholders that may directly impact livelihood. However, many cities show a ‘plan and forget’ behavior by not monitoring and evaluating their urban plans. While local citizens are often excluded after the urban plan is enacted. Gibbs (2016) warned of the risk of this behavior by saying, ...

Downscaling of transistors, also known as Moore’s law, has been the main propelling force behind the microelectronics industry. This trend will eventually come to an end due to physical limitations, hence an alternative is required to further drive technological progress. This gave an incentive to evolve in other directions as well, also known...

Open recirculating cooling systems have been vital elements in industry since the early 20th century. Their purpose is to release excess heat from processes through water evaporation so that production can be carried out at optimal temperature. With the global development of industrial activities such as manufacturing, electricity and chemical...

Climate change, combined with the rapid and often unplanned urbanisation trends, is associated with a rising trend in the frequency and severity of disasters triggered by natural hazards. Among the weather-related disasters, floods and storms (i.e. hurricanes) account for the costliest and deadliest in the last decades. The situation is of...
