In light of the huge growth in population and tourism that Amsterdam will encounter in the future, the city might have to work towards a polycentral urban setup in which multiple city centers can contribute to the (social-, cultural-, economic-) wellbeing of the overall city. In this project we find that the likelihood of Sloterdijk, a place...

The North Sea has played an important role in European urbanization. Coastal cities thrive on the basis of port economy; but also shrink significantly once the dominated industry recessed. Today, under the threat of climate change, port-dominated homogenous development becomes rather vulnerable to disturbances. Den Helder is the Wadden port-city...

LiDAR technologies are used to measure point cloud data of the earth's surface. The usage of LiDAR allows for the fast collections of massive data sets. The AHN2 point cloud data set, part of Rijkswaterstaats initiative to map the surface of the Netherlands, contains 639 478 217 460 points. For efficient visualization in web viewers, these...

In common Dutch cardiac care, patients only have few follow-up meetings with their cardiologists after they have been treated at the hospital. Sometimes, they have to wait several months for their next visit. Therefore, patients often turn to online platforms where they can ask questions to other patients or healthcare professionals, namely...

This article explores how well vapor-liquid equilibria of pure components and binary mixtures of xylenes can be predicted using different force fields in molecular simulations. The accuracy of the Wolf method and the Ewald summation is evaluated. Monte Carlo simulations in the Gibbs ensemble are performed at conditions comparable to...

Vortex-induced vibration (VIV) is awell-known phenomenon for civil and offshore structures. Currently, the prediction of this type of vibration in practice currently mainly relies on the force-decomposition method. However, the limitations of this method have restricted the applicability of the method, and alternative models are therefore needed...

In the transition towards low-carbon energy systems, the growth of variable renewable energy sources (V-RES) like solar and wind in the electricity systems is calling for more flexibility measures. These are needed to cope with the increased uncertainty and variability that affects the residual demand. Flexibility can be offered by traditional...

Polyphenols are molecules with a wide range of bioactive properties. They are being applied as nutraceuticals or natural colorants. The growing interest in these molecules has led to the creation of projects such as the BacHBerry project (www. bachberry.eu), with the main goal of discovering novel polyphenols and tapping their commercial...

This thesis tests the hypothesis that distributional deep reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms get an increased performance over expectation based deep RL because of the regularizing effect of fitting a more complex model. This hypothesis was tested by comparing two variations of the distributional QR-DQN algorithm combined with prioritized...

The global population is ageing at a rapid pace, accordingly many countries implement ageing in place policies to prevent unmanageable growth of costs of institutionalised care settings. Like many other countries, the Dutch government also shifted towards ageing in place policies to reduce the costs of institutionalised care settings. Ageing in...

This exploration study focuses on the braking behaviour of World Tour cyclists during a descent. For this study, 8 riders descended over 6 trials using a ‘sensor bike’. As part of this particular study, a novel brake sensor is developed and validated in practice. The sensor package can be transferred between bicycles, allowing each rider to use...

This paper presents a new theoretical approach to design a polycentric electricity sector. The study focuses on Lebanon and its electricity sector, and tries to reform the sector using a proposed polycentric structure. The study utilises the polycentric indicators and general structure, along with organisational modes, and electricity market...

Super Resolution Microscopy is a technique to image objects with resolution higher than the diffraction limit, the fundamental limit to the resolution of a microscope. One of the techniques used for Super Resolution Microscopy is Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM). For this method, a sample is labeled using fluorophores (fluorescent...

There is a clear mismatch between the national ambition to reach a natural gas-free housing stock and the current ability of owner-occupiers to meet this ambition. This research aims to help resolve this mismatch between the national ambition and the opportunities for households to act in the gas-free transition. To do so, missing information is...

This research focuses on the unofficial neighbourhoods on the boarders of South African Cities. The informal settlements are quickly built by unskilled hands on foreign land without any form of planning, supervision or legislation. The self-constructed houses lack of daylight, ventilation and water tightness. This results in poor, unsafe and...

Environmental impacts related to the global food system are increasingly addressed by academia, institutions, policy-makers and businesses. Fundamentally, decisions about food consumption rest with the customer, and although they are the largest stakeholder group in the food system, they are not adequately equipped to consider the environmental...
