In many experimental investigations of thermodynamic equilibrium or kinetic properties of series of similar reactions it is found that the enthalpies and entropies derived from Van ′t Hoff or Arrhenius plots exhibit a strong linear correlation. The origin of this Enthalpy-Entropy compensation, which is strongly related to the coalescence...

Artificial barriers are widely used to prevent leakages. However, due to construction errors during the wall installation, passages with small dimensions may occasionally penetrate through the barrier, undermining its tightness. A three-dimensional discretized algorithm (TDA) is proposed for quantitatively estimating the transient-state...

The goal of this thesis is to estimate parameters in a bidimensional Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process, namely a diffusion model which can be found in Favetto and Samson (2010), which considers plasma and interstitium concentrations. We first look at a general linear stochastic differential equation and some properties. Then we simulate possible paths...

This thesis aims at the development of physical relations between the intricate 3D features of metallic microstructures and the mechanical properties of the material. For understanding which are the microstructural determinants of the resultingmechanical behaviour of metals, a deep quantitative characterisation of the microstructure is needed....

In this modern age, data is being generated constantly and data is being saved for analysis everywhere. In the maritime industry, interest in the analysis of ship data has grown over the years. In this thesis, we will take a look at AIS data coupled with sea state data. AIS data is data generated from the ship, concerning the ship locations,...

Enthalpy-entropy compensation (EEC) is very often encountered in chemistry, biology and physics. Its origin is widely discussed since it would allow, for example, a very accurate tuning of the thermodynamic properties as a function of the reactants. However, EEC is often discarded as a statistical artefact, especially when only a limited...

Rainfall extremes are thought to have increased over recent years. Typically linear trends have been considered to describe the temporal evolution of high quantiles of the daily rainfall distribution. For long records it is important to allow more flexibility. Quantile regression methods are available to estimate monotone trends for single...

Record linkage is the procedure of bringing together information from two or more records that are believed to belong to the same entity. The linking of a pair of records without identifier should be based on attributes both records have in common. The probabilistic framework described by Fellegi and Sunter (1969) can be used for record linkage....

In this thesis several methods for variable selection for statistical models are examined. There is specific attention for variable selection in so called "dependent data", in which there exists a strong correlation between the independent variables.

Tijdens het varen zijn er verschillende data gemeten. In deze data zitten fouten. Vanwege de fouten zijn er aannames opgesteld. De aannames worden getoetst. De data wordt gecorrigeerd, gebruikmakend van gewogen gemiddelden en kubische splines

In statistics one often encounters the problem of estimating a function based on a given dataset. Sometimes shape properties such as monotonicity of the function are known. This property can be used in a non-parametric regression model. The iterative convex minorant(ICM) algorithm can be used to compute an estimate of a convex regression...

In extreme value theory the focus is on the tails of the distribution. The main focus is to estimate the tail distribution for a rounded data set. To estimate this tail distribution the extreme value index should be estimated, but due to the rounded data this extreme value index oscillates heavily. Therefore a correct estimate can not be...

This thesis answers the question "How can we show and improve our confidence in coastal forecasts?", by providing four examples of common coastal forecasts. The first example shows how to improve the estimate of the one in ten thousand year storm-surge level. The three dimensional reconstruction, based on paintings, shows that structural erosion...

Artificial beach and foreshore nourishments, as executed widely along the Dutch coast, change the nearshore morphology and current patterns significantly. Over the last decades the size of the nourishments has increased from 0.7 x 106 m3/km to over 6 x 106 m3/km. Groynes which were present along the southern Holland coast since the 19th century...

Certain banks offer its customers a new investment product, which is known as AEX-sparen. A minimal amount of 5000 Euro is put into a bank account and this will be returned after four months plus interest. The interest is the same as the AEX-Index has earned in the previous four months, but is maximized to 10 %. If the AEX-Index has gone down...

Statistics deals with answering questions based on collected data. In medical applications, the quantity of interest can often not be observed directly. They are censored. It is a challenge to answer the question as precisely as possible based on the incomplete data. The quantity of interest can be censored in many different ways. In HIV vaccine...

Properties of soils are spatially variable and to describe the behaviour of soils as a response to loading, this variability appears crucial in giving the correct range of possible solutions for structure response. Because site investigation techniques only provide exact information at a limited part of the site, random field simulations are...

An overview of bicycle and rider kinematic motions from a series of experimental treadmill tests is presented. The full kinematics of bicycles and riders were measured with an active motion capture system. Motion across speeds are compared graphically with box and whiskers plots. Trends and ranges in amplitude are shown to characterize the...

After a storm surge in November 2007, older storm surge deposits were discovered in the eroded dunes near Heemskerk, the Netherlands. These deposits undulate in height with a maximum elevation of over 6 m above mean sea level. Luminescence dating suggests that the layers were deposited by either the 1775 or the 1776 storm surge. The aim of this...
