Wetlands are among the most productive environments in the world. Around 6% of the Earth's land surface is covered by wetlands, which are key to preserving biodiversity. Wetlands provide multiple services like a source for water supply and a shelter for numerous species of fauna and flora. Wetlands are therefore of immense socio-economic as well...

The aim of Transmission Expansion Planning (TEP) studies is to decide which, where, and when new grid elements should be built in order to minimize the total system cost. The lumpiness of the investment decisions, together with the large size of the problem, make the problem very hard to solve. Consequently, methods should be put in place to...

In situations with spatial limitations where a bridge is desired, a skewed bridge is a solution. The bridge deck of a skewed bridge has the shape of a parallelogram, in which the angle that remains in the acute corners is defined as the skew angle. This thesis focuses on the design of reinforced concrete skewed slab highway bridges that are...

Already since the start of civilisation dredging is carried out to create and maintain waterways and ports or to create new land. In recent times the scale of dredging and awareness of potential environmental impact of dredging have increased drastically. An often used dredging vessel is the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD). A TSHD pumps...

Sailing against the wind follows a zig-zag trajectory. To find the optimal time and path-trajectory to move from one target to another during a race, this study analyzes how the wind determines the optimal time-path of Lasers, one of the smallest sailboats that compete during the summer Olympic Games.
To answer this question, this study uses...

Weather observation is becoming more important than ever because extreme weather, such as tropical cyclones, thunderstorms and heavy rain, is more common nowadays. To observe and forecast the atmospheric phenomena at high spatial and temporal resolution, weather radar is well recognized as an effective tool. The prerequisite of using weather...

The increasing complexity of mechanical systems has resulted in an increased usage and dependence on data driven modelling techniques in order to obtain simple yet accurate models of these systems. Neural networks have emerged as a popular modelling choice due to their proven ability to learn complex nonlinear relationships between inputs and...

This report is the result of the graduation project of Joris Menting for SWKGroep. The project concludes the master program Design for Interaction at the Delft University of Technology. SWKGroep asked for an innovative child care tool for children of 10-14 years old. The project description offered the designer much freedom. The initial design...

Inter-Autonomous System (AS) route monitoring is the process of collecting the inter-AS routing information. This information flows on the Internet in the form of BGP UPDATE messages, and the BGP data are the messages obtained by the monitors. Existing methods of monitor placement rely on the network topology which provides inadequate visibility...

With the rise of globalisation, countries have become more connected financially and global cross-border investment flows have become more common. FDI is an important form of cross-border flow which is responsible for the spread of technology across countries and is the main source of external finance for emerging countries. In the last two...

The environmental control system is an essential system on all modern aircraft and is the largest consumer of secondary power. System power consumption is potentially reduced by using electric compressors to feed the system, instead of bleed air. The aim of this research is to provide a first order estimate of the potential benefits on mission...

Preventing solidification cracking is an essential prerequisite for the safety of a welded structure. An undetected solidification crack has the potential to cause premature failure during service. Two conditions generated by a weld thermal cycle are responsible for the initiation of solidification cracks. The first is the presence of excessive...

The skyline operator has been proposed to bridge the gap between traditional and multimedia database systems by finding the optimal objects according to the notion of Pareto dominance. According to the notion of Pareto dominance an object dominates another if it is better in one attribute and equal in all others. Skyline sets end up being pretty...

The acute obstetrics (AO) sector in the Netherlands faces two challenges. The increasing difficulty to find personnel and the closing down of several locations have put a major pressure on the existing AO locations. This has led to questions about the quality of the spatial distribution. The measures currently in place are based the travel time...

To realise more sustainable industrial ground floors the implementation of alkali-activated concrete is considered for jointless elastically supported ground floors. Such floors are realised with large areas without dilations, the shrinkage reduction is therefore restrained causing cracks to arise at the top surface of the floor. The control of...

This thesis focuses on the field of Job Recommendation. Particularly, we focus on using implicit preferences exhibited by the job seeker in interactions with a web platform to propose an improved ranking algorithm for a job recommendation platform called Magnet.me. We also study evaluation of relevance, and evaluation of recommendation sorting...

In times when there is more and more focus on environmental impact, all aspects must be taken into account. Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is easy and cheap to produce and has lots of applications because of its properties. These properties however, also make it a hard material to recycle. This paper focuses on a rich mathematical model for the...

Buildings don’t use energy: People do. Do highly efficient homes really save energy? Counter-intuitively, dwellings that use less energy have low energy efficiency, and those with higher energy consumption have higher efficiency. Moreover, even accurate building energy simulation for multiple buildings could not predict the actual energy...

Developing intelligent decision making systems in the real world requires planning algorithms which are able to deal with sources of uncertainty and constraints. An example can be found in smart distribution grids, in which planning can be used to decide when electric vehicles charge their batteries, such that the capacity limits of lines are...
