In conventional applications, such as bio-imaging and microscopy, SPAD is typically used as a single-photon counter. However, this advantage has been challenged by other photon-counting technologies, especially from CMOS-based QIS. Comparatively, apart from single-photon counting capability, QIS is superior to SPAD in terms of intrinsic multi...

In the Netherlands, many cities aim to promote cycling as a solution for sustainable mobility. However, the bicycle parking shortage is common. The popularity of ‘car-free city’ concept provides the opportunity to solve the problem by replacing car parking spaces to bicycle parking spaces. This study used a GIS-based location-allocation method...

Among all the contributors to fatal accidents, in-flight loss of control (LOC-I) remains one of the largest categories, as indicated by statistics of investigations into past civil aircraft accidents. In flight LOC generally refers to accidents in which the flight crew was unable to maintain control of the aircraft in flight, resulting in an...

Patients with colorectal cancer are frequently presented with liver metastases for which (partial) resection is often the best therapy. However, the future remnant liver, the remaining part of the liver after resection, should allow adequate liver function to avoid liver failure. This thesis presents novel methods for the accurate voxel-wise...

The graduation project is about personalizing the multimedia guide (abbreviated as MMT) of the Van Gogh Museum. The personalization goal is to facilitate future visitors to engage with the collection and maximize the meaning of visiting the museum based on visitors’ diverse concerns. A model is brought up during the project and can describe four...

The nanoindentation test was conducted in this paper to investigate the indentation hardness, plasticity and initial creep properties of pressure sintered nanosilver joint at various test temperatures. The effects of strain rate on the indentation hardness were first investigated. Then yield stress of nanosilver sintered joint was studied in...

Through Irish history, different spiritual demands in specific historical moments impacts on the legends of Hy-Brasil. In turn, the stories of Hy-Brasil reflects the history of Ireland through its possible position, appearances, items events, viewpoints gateways and monuments. The project is to use the history of Hy-Brasil, a mystical island of...

Saltwater intrusion is a crucial issue in estuaries. The spread of salinity is described by the dispersion coefficient. A purely empirical equation which links the effective tidal average dispersion to the freshwater discharge was developed by Van der Burgh [1972]. Combining it with the salt balance equation, Savenije [1986] derived a one...

A method is presented to model deformation and fracture behavior of 3D printed disordered lattice materials under uniaxial tensile load. A lattice model was used to predict crack pattern and load-displacement response of the printed lattice materials. To include the influence of typical layered structures of 3D printed materials in the...

This work proposes a method for numerically investigating the fracture mechanism of cement paste at the microscale based on X-ray computed tomography and nanoindentation. For this purpose, greyscale level based digital microstructure was generated by X-ray microcomputed tomography with a resolution of 2 μm/voxel length. In addition,...

This paper proposes a novel hybrid model for learning discrete and continuous dynamics of car-following behaviors. Multiple modes representing driving patterns are identified by partitioning the model into groups of states. The model is visualizable and interpretable for car-following behavior recognition, traffic simulation, and human-like...

During the operation of the belt conveyor, measuring speed of the belt conveyor is vital to the safe and efficient operation. In the existing measuring speed system, the measurement instrument is required contacting with the surface of the belt. The contact measurement method cannot avoid the occurrence of measuring error caused by slipping...

In this letter, we propose a decentralized framework for rate-distributed linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) beamforming in wireless acoustic sensor networks. To save the energy usage within the network, we propose to minimize the transmission cost and put a constraint on the noise reduction performance. Subsequently, we...

Capacitors made of interdigitated electrodes (IDEs) as a transducer platform for the sensing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) have advantages due to their lower power operation and fabrication using standard micro-fabrication techniques. Integrating a micro-electromechanical system (MEMS), such as a microhotplate with IDE capacitor,...

Orthogonal signal-division multiplexing (OSDM) is a promising modulation scheme that provides a generalized framework to unify orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) and single-carrier frequency-domain equalization. By partitioning each data block into vectors, it allows for a flexible configuration to trade off resource management...
