Energy transition goals to reduce carbon emissions are a driver key for an increase share of variable renewable energy sources (vRES). To achieve 49% of CO2 reduction by 2030 compared to 1990, the Netherlands set a plan to generate 84 TWh of electricity from renewable energy sources, where 35 TWh need to be generated exclusively from onshore...

Ageing infrastructures and shortage of financing induce the need for optimising public infrastructure replacements. From an economic perspective, classical net present value comparison is traditionally the method of choice to decide on investments and replacements. The current research observes that typical infrastructure related features make...

The amount of air traffic worldwide is increasing, with an adverse effect on aircraft noise in the vicinity of airports as a result. Measurements and calculations have complementary benefits and limitations for the assessment of aircraft noise. A common method for the calculation of aircraft noise is ECAC Doc. 29. Various improvements of this...

The problem that discussed is less an issue to the contexts, but a general critical reflection on the disciplinary of architecture. The determinant role of architects in design process and free interpretation of the inhabitants pose the conflictions. Our (architects) creativities and imaginations are confined within the given role and limited...

With the upsurge of disruptive trends such as digitalisation and automation, organisations have become more vulnerable to the consequences of these disruptive trends. The Harbourmaster is responsible for facilitating a safe and efficient port-call-process. Digitalisation and automation might lead to opportunities and threats in the port-call...

This paper proposes an effective couple method for solving reliability-based multi-objective optimization problems of truss structures with static and dynamic constraints. The proposed coupling method integrates a single-loop deterministic method (SLDM) into the nondominated sorting genetic algorithm II (NSGA-II) algorithm to give the so...

Most alluvial plains in the world are protected by flood defences, for example, embankments, whose primary aim is to reduce the probability of flooding of the protected areas. At the same time, however, the presence of embankments at one area influences hydraulic conditions of downstream areas located on the same river. These hydraulic...

Unexpected disruptions occur frequently in railway systems, during which many train services cannot run as scheduled. This paper deals with timetable rescheduling during such disruptions, particularly in the case where all tracks between two stations are blocked for a few hours. In practice, the disruption length is uncertain, and a disruption...

Several commonly-used nonparametric change-point detection methods are analysed in terms of power, ability and accuracy of the estimated change-point location. The analysis is performed with synthetic data for different sample sizes, two types of change and different magnitudes of change. The methods studied are the Pettitt method, a method...

Managerial flexibility in infrastructure investment and replacement decisions adds value. Real options analysis (ROA) captures this value under uncertain market prices. The concept of ROA is that future unfavourable payoffs can be deferred as soon as more information about market prices becomes available. The popularity of ROA is seen in a...

Bayesian networks are proposed as a tool to integrate reliability and influential variables relating to the slope stability of an idealized embankment. The site investigation (extent) and slope geometry, as well as the material properties and their spatial variability, are considered within a Bayesian network. The random finite element method ...

This paper presents a study carried out to first assess the impact of the Panama Canal expansion (PCE) on selected Caribbean ports, and thereafter, to examine how the ports can adapt in order to seize new opportunities created by the expansion. An applied case of long-term dynamic planning and flexibility in engineering design is presented for a...

The information security (IS) risk assessment process is an essential part to organisation's their protection of digital assets. However, the fast changing IS environment causes for limited knowledge of eventualities, dependencies and values of systems and phenomena. Consequently, the IS risk assessment process is depending on the judgment of...

Evolution of coastline position under the influence of natural and anthropogenic processes is directly linked to the development of seaside societies. In the context of coastal zone management, process-based morphodynamic models are often used topredict coastline evolution and support the decision-making process...

Uncertainty has an obstructing role in the decision-making of electrification investments for industrial actors. Future research by analysts is required to explore the potential of electrified industrial systems in their uncertain environments. In order to enable research to uncertainty in electrified industrial systems, the identification and...

Teleoperation allows the use of human intelligence and decision making in remote tasks which are too dangerous for humans to perform. Technologies such as force feedback and haptic guidance have shown to increase task efficiency during teleoperation. In an unmodeled environment, sensors provide input for haptic guidance or present extra...

In the present turbulent environment, adaptability and robustness belong under the overarching definition of sustainability. Sustainable infrastructures should not only achieve economic, environmental, and social objectives, but should be robust and adaptable under uncertainty. This paper examines the current guidelines for port development and...

The emergent literature on mainstreaming immigrant integration frequently references the term superdiversity. The diversification of migration is put forward as one rational for implementing measures to support immigrant integration across policy fields and across levels of policy making. In this paper I reflect on those assertions and argue...

Video captioning, in essential, is a complex natural process, which is affected by various uncertainties stemming from video content, subjective judgment, and so on. In this paper, we build on the recent progress in using encoder-decoder framework for video captioning and address what we find to be a critical deficiency of the existing...
