In collaboration with the University of the Bahamas, we used the Charette model, the Three-point Approach and the conceptual framework: Build Back Better to propose a solution that involves several aspects: Reduced risk overall, increased social cohesion on the island, improved life quality and reduced costs during reconstruction in the...

When containers are transported on synchromodal bookings from their origin to their destination, the transport supplier can decide which combination of trucks, trains, and ships to use. This gives transport suppliers many options to route the container through the synchromodal network. Current literature on the individual routing of containers...

The growing group of health-conscious consumers drives the development and sales in the market of low- or non-alcoholic beverages. In particular, sales in alcohol-free beer (AFB) has drastically gained in recent years, giving the incentive to further advance alcohol-free products. This thesis comprises the development of a new technology to...

The dissertation discusses different wind turbine control strategies that use pitch actuation to decrease the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of wind farms. This is achieved by either mitigating the loads experienced by individual turbines, or by enhancing wake mixing in turbines located within a wind farm. The latter strategy exploits the fact...

Mutation testing is well-known for its efficacy in assessing test quality, and starting to be applied in the industry. However, what should a developer do when confronted with a low mutation score? Should the test suite be plainly reinforced to increase the mutation score, or should the production code be improved as well, to make the...

This paper presents the investigation on surface discharge behavior of various dielectric samples under DC. It sequentially develops the knowledge base for the study and analysis of the partial discharge (PD) defect with the goal of PD defect identification under DC. In order to facilitate this, the material properties of the dielectric are...

Reinforced Concrete (RC) structures are widely used in our society for more than a century. In order to design safe and economical RC structures, various methods have been proposed by engineers and researchers. Remarkably, it still is a challenging task for engineers to design D-regions of RC structures, regions with nonlinear strain...

This thesis is concerned with fluctuations of interacting particle systems that<br/>enjoy the property of duality. The main contributions of this work are divided<br/>in two main parts. In the first part we study some of the advantages of looking<br/>at the density fluctuation field through the lenses of orthogonal self-dualities. In<br/>the...

A wall-resolved Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of a wing-body junction is performed. The aim is to generate high-fidelity junction flow data to be used in a data-driven turbulence modelling approach, specifically to improve the accuracy of RANS-simulations in junction flows. The simulation is performed on a 61.5 million C-grid body fitted mesh in...

In this thesis I research the ability of groups of agents to organize their collective behavior, without any human intervention. Using a framework for gathering information of the behavior, analyzing the performance, and updating the behavior, the agents can adapt to changing environments or user requirements. In my thesis I use different...

Participation of actors is essential for achievement of the United Nation’s (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With respect to sustainable agriculture the UN has introduced a collaborative framework for food systems transformation encompassing: 1) food system champions identification; 2) food systems assessment; 3) multi-stakeholder...

A flexible riser is a multi-layered pipe device which enables deep-water production by connecting seabed facilities to floating vessels. To withstand huge hydro-static pressure, it is required to have strong collapse capacities. At present, the collapse capacity of a flexible riser is designed based on a "wet collapse'' concept, in which the...

Requirements on ships are rapidly increasing. In particular, safety and environmental impact are under increasing scrutiny. At the same time, cost and pro_tability remain as important as they have ever been. These increasingly stringent constraints are beginning to pose problems during the design process. For example, the energy e_ciency design...

Helical point spread functions (PSFs) provide a powerful computational imaging tool for modern optical imaging and sensing applications. However, their utilization is, so far, limited to a single field of application, i.e. super-resolution microscopy, which is due to multiple shortcomings in their current system implementation. A new...

As the title suggests, cyclists are the main topic of this dissertation<br/>and more specifically, their behaviour while they are ‘in motion’. The<br/>term ‘in motion’ is used in the title to represent microscopic operational<br/>cycling behaviour, which is the behaviour of cyclists, treated as individuals<br/>(microscopic level), while they are...

Walking is an essential form of human mobility. In policy making,<br/>however, pedestrians are largely neglected. This dissertation explores<br/>how the system for pedestrians works and what steps authorities can take<br/>to improve conditions for pedestrians, walking and sojourning in public<br/>space. It outlines an effective and fair approach...

The increasing importance of climate change and stricter regulations for greenhouse gas emissions raise the pressure on the automotive industry to develop more efficient products. Besides a reduction of emissions by new combustion engines, electric vehicles are being introduced to lower the fleet fuel economy. Especially this new drivetrain...

DC links with back to back voltage source converters are usually built alongside the existing medium voltage ac distribution grids for infrastructure reinforcement. The distribution network operators need to run multiple of such parallel ac and dc links between two substations at optimal efficiency. This article shows that the active power...

Dimples are shallow, indented surfaces that attempt to reduce drag in turbulent boundary layer flows. However, the underlying effect of the dimples on the drag is not entirely understood. This thesis sets out to expand our understanding; a numerical investigation of turbulent boundary layer flow over dimpled surfaces is conducted. This research...

This thesis introduces a theory for model-driven objective functions in Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithms. For scheduling supply chains, such model-driven objective functions allow the MPC algorithm to make optimal scheduling decisions by anticipating future changes in product flow and transfer price dynamics. Including such dynamics...
