At present, many studies have begun to focus on evaluating urban accessibility and livability, which can be a series of great guidance for future urban planning considering residents’ personal perceptions of various living aspects. It can be observed from the existing literature that urban accessibility has a mature evaluation system,...

Recirculation and infiltration of leachate in landfills are performed to accelerate the process of stabilizing organic matter in waste. At landfill De Kragge (Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands), leachate recirculation and infiltration measures started in March 2018. This research aims to provide insight related to leachate flow throughout the...

Powerful predictive AI systems have demonstrated great potential in augmenting human decision-making. Recent empirical work has argued that the vision for optimal human-AI collaboration requires ‘appropriate reliance’ of humans on AI systems. However, accurately estimating the trustworthiness of AI advice at the instance level is quite...

There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

Over the years, aero engines have evolved into the efficient turbofans present on commercial airliners today. Although these engines are very reliable, they still experience degradations in performance and reductions in component health. The degradation affects the operation of the engine, which can be measured using the pressure, temperature,...

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) systems for aviation applications have been considered for their use as APUs or powertrains, as standalone systems or in combination with gas turbines, and both fueled by reformed Jet-A or by hydrogen. Most existing studies focus on powertrain performance modelling. In this work, traditional tube-and-wing regional...

The Port of Rotterdam is one of the largest CO2 emitters of the Netherlands. One method to reduce its emissions is by implementing carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technologies. In this research two different CCU routes for industrial-scale n-caproate production are compared. The first route utilizes microbial electrosynthesis (direct route)...

Full vehicle automation requires complete control over all driving scenarios that can be encountered on roads in order to ensure passenger safety at all times. This extends to dangerous situations such as losing control on slippery surfaces, commonly known as drifting. This work aims to make a step toward ensuring passenger safety in these...

In a world where more data gets uploaded to the cloud, it is essential that the data gets stored securely. For users to keep search functionality, searchable symmetric encryption has been developed. SSE works by a user sending a token representing a keyword (or a range), after which the server returns the documents that match the keyword (or...

During arrival waves at hub airports the surrounding airspaces can be congested, resulting in flight delays. To solve this congestion problem one of the current solutions is to sequence flights whilst they are still en-route by using an Extended Arrival Manager (E-AMAN). This paper aims at improving this E-AMAN concept by tackling two of its...

Mobile electronics or remote devices like sensors for the Internet of Things (IoT) require energy storage with increasing energy densities, approaching the limits of the widespread lithium batteries. At the same time, lithium batteries are subject to growing criticism about their environmental impact due to their raw materials and their mining...

In many flow experiments it is complex to measure all flow states of interest, leading to the need for a method to retrieve unmeasured flow states from measured ones. This work focuses on Hidden Fluid Mechanics (HFM), which refers to a Physics-Informed Neural Network (PINN) able to incorporate the Navier-Stokes (NS) equations into the loss...

State-of-the-art tilt-rotor flight mechanics models appear to be inadequate in predicting the flight dynamics behavior across the entire flight envelope due to a lack of experimental data suggesting the need for more generic models. This paper presents a middle ground between model flexibility (genericity) and accuracy. For this purpose a...

With new rovers landing on Mars, like the Perseverance rover in 2020, the interest in Mars has grown recent years. The atmospheric conditions on Mars result in challenging conditions due to its low density atmosphere and extremely low temperatures. With a density on Mars that is 1% of that on Earth, creating sufficient lift for vehicles to fly...

An intracranial aneurysm is a bulge in the cerebral vasculature. The rupture of an aneurysm results in a brain bleed. As a consequence, most patients become severely handicapped or may even die. Preventive treatment with endovascular coiling is controversial due to the high risk of complications. These complications are partly caused by the...

<b>Purpose</b> Manufacturer’s predictions of ablation zone dimensions are the current directives for treatment planning in thermal ablation, while they are mostly based on ex vivo experiments making its reliability questionable. The aim of this study is to determine the correspondence in dimensions, volume, shape and overlap of the manufactures’...

<b>Introduction</b> Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of childhood morbidity, disability and mortality worldwide. In the treatment of TBI, neuromonitoring is essential to prevent secondary neurological damage. However, the use of neuromonitoring and specifically therapeutic targets is currently limited evidence-based.<br/><b...

Uncertainty in ice sheet modelling affects centennial and longer time-scale projections of the Greenland Ice Sheet's (GrIS) sea level contribution. One source of this uncertainty is the interaction between the ice sheet’s evolution and the Earth’s deformation in response to changes in the applied surface loading as the ice sheet waxes and wanes....

Blind Source Separation (BSS), the separation of latent source components from observed mixtures, is relevant to many fields of expertise such as neuro-imaging, economics and machine learning. Reliable estimates of the sources can be obtained through diagonalization of the cumulant tensor, i.e., a fourth-order symmetric multi-linear array...
