A wide range of wildlife has their habitat around and within levees or other types of embankment structures. In the Netherlands the burrowing of the muskrat causes internal and external erosion, altering the geometry of the earthen structure. As often century-old embankments protect the densely populated land against the water, the burrowing can...

Knowledge of near-surface seismic-wave velocity of granular materials plays a valuable role in seismic exploration data processing. I will use the surface-wave analysis method for estimation of shear-wave velocity profile and P-wave refraction for estimation of pressure-wave velocity on a data set acquired over a sand dune in The Netherlands, a...

In multi-legged robots, such as the Zebro robot from TU Delft Robotics Institute, locomotion can be addressed as a Max-Plus Linear (MPL) system. In such MPL systems the gait is generated and controlled by abstracting the continuous motion of the legs to the occurrences of discrete touch-down and lift-off events, which are subsequently described...
