In practice, reinforced concrete structures may encounter different kinds of curing conditions
due to the weather (sun radiation, air moisture and wind), nearby external environment
(seawater, attack of stray current arising from nearby railways), or human factors (insufficient
curing period). In some extreme conditions, the...

The survival time T is the longest time that a virus, a meme, or a failure can propagate in a network. Using the hitting time of the absorbing state in an uniformized embedded Markov chain of the continuous-time susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) Markov process, we derive an exact expression for the average survival time E[T ] of a virus in...

Computing system reliability when system components are correlated presents a challenge because it usually requires solving multi-fold integrals numerically, which is generally infeasible due to the computational cost. In Dutch flood defense reliability modeling, an efficient method for computing the failure probability of a system of correlated...

In this thesis I investigated the use of lighting to nudge people in their decision for a seat in a waiting area. Subconscious effects of several lighting parameters were examined and the results used in an integral lighting concept for Schiphol. This concept enables three functionalities: monitoring of the waiting area, determining the...

In the past decades a clear transition can be seen from fully human-based production techniques towards more automated systems. With the Product Development Process (PDP) being a potential source of competitive advantage the same trend of adopting more automation can be seen in the PDP. The application of automation can lead to large reductions...

The safety of offshore pipelines during installation has drawn a great deal of attention due to the combined actions of high external pressure, axial tension and bending moment. Subsea pipelines have the tendency to rotate during installation. This rotation can have multiple causes which are interfering with each other. During S-lay installation...

The past few years have shown a significant increase in demand for diversity in the global beer market. HEINEKEN, the third largest beer brewer in the world, has therefore embraced a global strategy with a diverse product portfolio in beer and packaging types. This strategy towards diversity is directly affecting the supply chain of global...

Over the duration of the last year research regarding the en route delay absorption capabilities of the MUAC airspace for Schiphol inbound flights has been performed. Delay absorption currently takes place in the lower airspace, where as a result air traffic controllers and pilots experience increased workloads during one of the most critical...

In the framework of irreversible thermodynamics, we show that the sedimentation current in electrolyte solutions is mathematically equivalent to the low frequency limit of the ionic vibration current, appearing in the presence of an acoustic wave. This non-trivial result is obtained thanks to a careful choice of the reference frame used to...

When harsh weather conditions are expected during an offshore pipeline operation, the decision to start the abandonment procedure has to be taken based on pipeline integrity limits. The pipeline integrity which is analysed by a maximum design sea state does not correspond to the situation offshore, because sea states always occur in a different...

Due to their loosely coupled and highly dynamic nature, service-oriented systems offer many benefits for realizing fault tolerance and supporting trustworthy computing. They enable automatic system reconfiguration when a faulty service is detected. Spectrum-based fault localization (SFL) is a statistics-based diagnosis technique that can be...

The purpose of this MSc thesis is to find a feasible concept for a circa 4500 m long buoyancy bridge, which is located at the Sognefjord in Norway. The concept should be structurally and aesthetically competitive. In contrast to bridges on shore with fixed supports, a buoyancy bridge is supported on floating pontoons. As result, loads will cause...

Globally about 1 billion people (mainly living in developing countries) cannot get the health services that they need. This is a result of the lack of access, lack of trained health personnel, inadequate resources and facilities, and products and services are not affordable to the majority of the people. The company Healthy Entrepreneurs (HE)...

In electrolyte solutions, an electric potential difference, called the Ionic Vibration Potential (IVP), related to the ionic vibration intensity, is generated by the application of an acoustic wave. Several theories based on a mechanical framework have been proposed over the years to predict the IVP for high ionic strengths, in the case where...

This project shows a new way to explore Dutch art and culture in the Mauritshuis museum and in Den Haag. Dutch museum sector has a strong connection to the Dutch tourism sector. Museum is an important attraction in the Netherlands that many travel websites recommend as a must-see place to the tourists who visit the Netherlands. The museum sector...

The trend in Offshore Engineering is towards exploring in deeper waters and more harsh environments. As a consequence, topsides become larger and heavier. In order to keep up with the demand for more lifting capacity, Heerema announced a New Semi-submersible Crane Vessel (NSCV). This vessel will contain two 10 000mt Tub Mounted Cranes (TMC),...

Organizations do not just decide on whether or not to exchange information digitally. In many cases, there are multiple alternative configurations of inter-organizational systems (IOS) that facilitate such information sharing. Although a lot is known about the factors that influence whether organizations do or do not adopt IOS, little is known...
