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 topic of this thesis is Integrity Monitoring (IM), with special focus on the Singapore Satellite Positioning Reference Network (SiReNT) infrastructure. This network infrastructure supports and improves Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) applications, related to positioning, navigation, tracking and (deformation) monitoring. This...

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...

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...

Certain industrial wastewaters have posed a big challenge to biological water treatment systems because of their high toxic organic compounds concentration (e.g. phenol) and high salinity. The maximum biomass specific phenol bioconversion rate (PhCR) of a mesophilic (35 °C) anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) under high sodium concentration ...

The production and consumption of energy in all walks of life is moving towards a greener and more sustainable mix of energy sources away from the traditional sources of coal and gas. With this shift, more renewable energy is expected to be integrated into the grid replacing conventional synchronous generators. In such conditions, the stability...

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...

Worldwide population growth, water scarcity, and climate change contribute to an urgent need for alternative water sources for irrigation water, industry water, and, in some countries even, drinking water. The implementation of municipal sewage reclamation is an upcoming trend in water treatment. The use of municipal sewage has the advantage of...

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...

Carrier selective passivating contact (CSC) is considered to be a promising direction for surface passivation research because it performs passivation for both non-contacted and contacted areas. Conventional heavy doping CSCs are subject to a few drawbacks such as significant Auger recombination, parasitic absorption, complicated processing and...

The wide adoption of composite structures in the aerospace industry asks for reliable numerical methods to account for the effects of damage, among which delamination. Cohesive elements (CEs) are a versatile and physically representative way of reproducing delamination, but, using their standard form, at least 3 elements are required in the...
