Hydrogen, as a fuel, will soon play a key role in helping economies transition to more sustainable practices. Having always garnered attention due to its non-polluting nature, the costs associated with its production have stood in the way of it being more widely used in society. Since the cost of clean energy to produce hydrogen is one of the...

This thesis focusses on the intersection 3D Boolean set operation on voxel data represented as surfaces, with other 3D surface based vector data, in GIS. The Application of this research makes the linkage with geohydrology possible: based on the vectorised GeoTOP (TNO) data the water infiltration and storage capacity of specific locations can be...

Urban physics is a multi-scale and interdisciplinary field, that combines science and engineering for the study of physical processes in urban areas. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is considered a powerful tool for the study of these processes. In the context of microscale phenomena these processes refer to the transfer of heat and mass in...

Indonesia has a severe problem of fossil fuel dependency, making it become one the world’s larger carbon emission contributor. At the same time, the growing population will increase the energy demand in the future. Thus, in order to meet the energy demand and decrease the carbon emission, the government together with PLN as the state electricity...

The heating transition goals of the Netherlands are ambitious. To reach the goal of an 80% reduction of CO2 emission by 2050, the total residential heat consumption would need to be drastically cut down. The Dutch government is leaning towards implementing large-scale heating networks and reusing waste heat from non-renewable industry. However,...

Global plastic production increased from 200 million metric tons in 2002, to 359 million metric tons in 2019. It is estimated that plastics in the marine environment weigh more than 150 million metric tons and by 2050 could even outweigh the mass of fish in the ocean. Over half of the world population (55%) nowadays lives in urban areas and...

The Dutch government set two environmental goals by 2050. One of them is being climate neutral and the other one is to have a circular economy. In order to meet both goals in the best environmental conditions, extensive environmental research is required. This thesis is one of these researches and its main focus is on the climate neutral goal by...

More than half of Mexico’s population is living in a type of poverty, recognized as a multidimensional challenge with a geographical context. Even though Mexico’s poverty is measured in a multifaceted way, the concept of Energy Poverty has not been studied, per se, by governmental institutions. It is until recently that the study of this concept...

Everything around us is rapidly changing. Whole new blocks of buildings are built, huge infrastructural projects are constructed and so on. Hence, there is a need of a reliable and up-to-date inventory of the area and the objects of interest for mapping and monitoring assets and their changes. An answer of this upcoming need is an automated...

This thesis focuses on the challenges Istanbul faces due to extensive urbanisation and global warming. The metropole has become vulnerable to climate change, especially to the increasing threat of floods. As a result of urbanisation and poor city planning, the green spaces have decreased considerably in Istanbul, which reduced stormwater...

Altena, Robert (author)
In the Netherlands, almost half of the energy supplied to households is used for space heating. Since natural gas supplies heating fuel to almost 95% of residential buildings Dutch municipalities have to investigate the possibilities of diversifying their heating infrastructure in order to comply with government environmental goals. Possible...

This study has investigated the effect of the urban environment on pedestrian route choice behaviour, for walking routes to and from train stations in the Netherlands. To the best knowledge of the author, this is the first pedestrian route choice study which is performed at country-level scope. This was made possible by applying an innovative...

Climate change may result in lowering of ground water levels and consolidation of the soil. The resulting (differential) settlements, associated with soil property transitions, may damage underground pipe infrastructure, such as drinking water distribution sys- tems. The work presented here offers an approach for the prediction of pipe failure...

Many new towns are established in China with the intention of providing desirable places to live. Nevertheless, these new towns often lack the flourishing street life, small businesses, and variety of social activities that old towns have to offer. This paper explores the spatial reasons why old towns tend to perform socio-economically better...

GIS is changing rapidly its face with the advancement of computing technologies. From merely a 2D representation of real world features, it is moving to present more and more applications in 3D formats. Today 3D GIS is an essential way of handling the spatial data in urban planning. In cities where every inch of land is measured and is consumed...
