With the shift of the safety standards for levees from exceedance probability (standard 1996) to flooding probability (new standard), the part of the levee failure process after the initial occurrence of a failure mechanism becomes more important for the calculation of the strength and thus, reliability of the levee cross-section. Interactions...

Several different kinds of Miracoli Dinner kits are produced on Line 4 in Oud-Beijerland. The current method of planning of production is not sufficient in terms of product availability and planning nervousness. A new method of Most-Urgent-First planning is proposed and a simulation is run to measure the performance in order to see if another...

There is a growth in the use of composites for the new generation of wide-body aircraft such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350. This shift from using aluminium as the primary material is motivated by the benefits of using composites in design, manufacturing and operations. Composites offer the aircraft manufacturer the ability to create more...

Purpose/Objective: The aim of the thesis project is to design and build a sample-holder that is suited for radiobiological experiments on cell and tissue level in Holland PTC. In order to create accurate dose plans for radiobiological experiments, dosimetry and range calculations need to be worked out. Finally the sample-holder is used for the...

This thesis research has been conducted to analyse the sediment dynamics in the Yangon Estuary, in order to define the cause for the sedimentation in Monkey Point Channel. For years, Yangon Port has been suffering from limited accessibility due to the sedimentation in the channel and currently daily dredging is required in order to let ships...

In the present study the stability of crown wall elements on top of a rubble mound breakwaters is investigated. The first step was conducting a literature review, in order to identify knowledge gaps. It was found that current design methods do not take the freeboard of the crown wall into account when calculating the vertical force acting on it....

In this paper a two agent wealth distribution model for a closed economic system developed in [2] is presented and extended. We first extend the model by randomly distributing the propensity to save of the agents. We derive a closed form of the stationary relative wealth measure of an agent. We also see that if we take both the propensity to...

In modern society cars are one of the most important means of transportation. Unfortunately, many people die in car accidents around the world. Research shows that the number of fatal casualties in car accidents has been increasing for the past decade and that the largest cause of these accidents is the human driver. For this reason, research on...

In this thesis we construct a perturbation method for delay differential equations (DDEs) based on the method of multiple scales for ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and ordinary difference equations (O$\Delta$Es). The method works for nonlinear DDEs, which are linear DDEs in the unperturbed case. The validity of the method is proven under...

Traditional electric power systems with large centralized base load power plants have a limited ability to react rapidly to the high supply variability associated with the increasing deployment of variable and intermittent renewable energy sources (RESs). Furthermore, with current power distribution networks primarily designed for unidirectional...

In the past decades, the global demand for energy has increased. The aim to reduces has let to an increase in the production of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar energy. However, there are more major energy resources available in the oceans, such as wave and tidal power. The estimated potential global energy resource in waves is...

Artificial lights in our buildings have always been designed to be static for one purpose only; illumination. With the increasing interest in Visible Light Communication (VLC) and a crowded radio-frequency spectrum, static lights in our offices and rooms might not be ideal anymore. VLC can add extra services like high quality communication and...

Context: SMEs make up the major share of the manufacturing and trading industry in Hong Kong. Recently, the industry is faced with growing environmental uncertainty that may result in new challenges, consequently giving rise to a different set of needs concerning B2B relationships. These needs may present opportunities for alternative B2B...

As material stocks are depleting and the building sector plays a big role in using these materials a circular economy can bring a solution to this depleting problem. Within the thoughts of applying the circular economy to the built environment, upscaling would not be possible without the community to engage to the topic. This project of a...

This dissertation deals with ‘architectural space formation’, which is understood as the part of architectural and urban design that concerns the creation and structuring of physically defined spaces of inside and outside character separately as well as in relation to each other and to open space. Furthermore, it focuses on the fundamental...

Uncertainty is ubiquitous in many areas of science and engineering. It may result from the inadequacy of mathematical models to represent the reality or from unknown physical parameters that are required as inputs for these models. Uncertainty may also arise due to the inherent randomness of the system being analyzed. For many problems of...

Measurements of a tachymetric network in the geothermal area of Bjarnarflag in North-East Iceland are performed during four consecutive years (2015-2018). For the yearly adjustment of the measurements an alternative iteration scheme to Baarda’s ’B-method of testing’ is proposed, because the level of significance of the F-test performed in the...
