The main motivation for this research originated from two ambitions, which involve many challenges for which circular solutions have to be developed. First, the ambition of the Dutch government to achieve a circular economy, which also includes a circular construction industry, in the Netherlands by 2050 at the latest. Secondly, in line with the...

The stress on global food security is expected to increase. Hence, crop and drought monitoring will become increasingly important in the future. Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR) are able to penetrate clouds and thus reliably provide data. Despite the extensive literature that can be found on the use of high spatio-temporal resolution SAR data, a...

One of the world’s biggest concerns is global warming, a solution to this can be wind energy. Offshore wind energy has advantages over onshore wind energy, however, the levelized cost of energy is higher. The maintenance costs are a major cost contributor. To lower these costs, research is performed on faults and its detection. Currently, little...

For mm-sized implants incorporating silicon integrated circuits, ensuring lifetime operation of the chip within the corrosive environment of the body still remains a critical challenge. For the chip's packaging, various polymeric and thin ceramic coatings have been reported, demonstrating high biocompatibility and barrier properties. Yet, for...

To fulfil the new safety standards of the Netherlands against flooding in the future, a great deal of work needs to be performed to prepare the flood defences system, at a quicker pace than is currently achieved. For this reason the HWBP is researching methods which can improve the efficiency of dike reinforcement projects. This thesis was...

Plastic pollution in aquatic ecosystems is a global problem. Rivers transport large quantities of litter from land to the oceans. Plastics of different sizes and properties are widely present at various locations in river systems. Concerning macroplastics, previous studies mainly focussed on floating plastics, however, substantial parts of the...

We all monitor the world around us through waves. After about sixteen weeks in the womb, the ears and eyes of an infant child begin to deliver the first signals of light and sound waves to the brain. In fact, one could argue that consciousness itself is the feeling one receives when processing large amounts of wavefield data. Despite the...

Photovoltaic (PV) technology has the potential to be integrated on many surfaces in various environments, even on water. Modeling, design, and realization of a floating PV system have more challenges than conventional rooftop or freestanding PV system. In this work, we introduce two innovative concepts for floating bifacial PV systems,...

One key obstacle in employing silicon integrated circuits in flexible implants is ensuring a long-term operation of the chip within the wet corrosive environment of the body. For this reason, throughout the years, various biocompatible insulating materials have been proposed, yet, evaluating their long-term encapsulation performance on...

It is estimated that about 400.000 houses in the Netherlands – both shallow and wooden pile foundations – could be facing problems with their foundations. Although, house owners are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that problems (and thereby costs) can be prevented if remedial measures are taken in time. Monitoring of the foundation can...

Humanity is facing large scale environmental challenges emerging from the anthropogenic climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) are widely considered to be the main driver of the changing climate. With the built environment currently being accountable for about 40% for our total GHG emissions there is a great urgency to act and change our...

The current article presents a case study of the settlement response of the historic Hoca Pasha Mosque that involves uncertainties arising from the complex excavation activities, soil properties, building materials, and geometry and the presence of pre-existing cracks in the mosque’s walls. The objective is to demonstrate the added value of a...

Managing credit risk is a vital part of financial institutions. While the research into credit risk models is extensive, transaction data is a relatively untapped data source in these models. We investigate the explanatory value of transaction data for the Bank by developing default classification models for their small medium enterprises (SME)...

The Phetchaburi River in Phetchaburi province, Thailand, has a watershed with many different water resource projects. The surrounding farms rely on the Phetchaburi River for irrigation water and the drinking water companies rely on it as a source of water. However, the Phetchaburi basin has problems with yearly floods, salt intrusion and...

In 1997, the Second Stichtse Bridge was built in the Netherlands using the balanced cantilever method. The use of high-strength concrete was proposed. At that time, the long-term behaviour of this material was not known, and no code provisions were applicable. Therefore, it was proposed to monitor the material behaviour and the deflections of...

The 189.50 m long Bobova tunnel constructed in 2005 is located on the D404 state highway and passes under a part of the Vežica – Sušak town area in Rijeka. The overburden above the tunnel pipe is between 2 m to 18 m thick. The rock mass along the tunnel route is made up of karst deposits (transient carbonate breccia, dolomite and limestone...

Dams and dikes are both water-retaining earth embankments. These are vulnerable to internal erosion but specific differences lead to varying vulnerabilities to different types of internal erosion: • Dams are usually zoned, with potential filtering capability to arrest piping if it is initiated, while dikes are more commonly unzoned and incapable...

Energy renovations offer unique opportunities to increase the energy efficiency of the built environment and for the existing housing stock, they are the most important solution. Usually, energy savings are based on modelling calculations. However, recent research has shown that the predicted energy consumption differs largely from the actual...
