The main objective of this research is to  improve our understanding of the relative  contribution of the causes of long-term bed  degradation in Rhine and other degrading  rivers. That is, the research is intended to  quantify past channel adjustment processes,  mainly bed degradation and bed surface  coarsening...

Over the past centuries natural river banks have been transformed into banks with artificial revetments or sheet piles to protect them from erosion. Important river features for flora and fauna have disappeared and the ecological quality of the river reduced dramatically. Recently, the importance of the ecological function of rivers has been...

The 10 km wide Jamuna river in Bangladesh is  one of the most morphologically active rivers in  the world, with bank erosion rates of up to 500  m per year (Mutton and Haque 2004). Such  extreme river migration in the center of  Bangladesh, one of the most densely  populated and impoverished regions in the  world...

In this work, we analyse linear polarization data of the planet at a distance, obtained with the Extreme Polarimeter (ExPo) on the William Herschel Telescope
on La Palma. These spatially resolved, high-accuracy polarization observations of Venus show faint circular patterns centered on the sub-solar point that are absent in the flux...

The detection of moons around extrasolar planets is one of the main focuses of current and future observatories. These silent companions contribute to the planets' observed signals but are barely detectable with current methods. Numerous gaseous exoplanets are known to orbit in the habitable zones of stars, and the expected abundance of natural...

The direct detection of reflected starlight from exoplanets marks the beginning of a new era in the characterization of extrasolar planetary atmospheres. The flux and in particular the linear polarization signals from such planets are sensitive to atmospheric structure and composition, but other effects may also contribute to observed signals....

Generating new seismic responses from existing recordings is generally referred to as seismic interferometry (SI). Conventially, the new responses are retrieved by simple crosscorrelation of recordings made by separate receivers: a first receiver acts as `virtual source' whose response is retrieved at the other receivers. The newly retrieved...

Fractures are a primary factor controlling the fluid storage and transport properties of hydrocarbon reservoirs. The quantitative characterization of fractures in outcrop analogues allows a better understanding of natural fracture systems, to extrapolate predictive laws useful for integrating the limited data available for buried reservoirs....

Imaging an unknown object in a medium that is known, such as a medium with constant velocity, is not difficult because one knows exactly where the waves are when they interact with the object. It is much more challenging to image an object in an unknown medium, because in that case one may know the waves that one sends into the medium, but one...

In practical combustion-based devices, such as internal combustion (IC) engines and gas turbines for power generation, there exists significant interaction between gas-phase combustion and metal surfaces. The nature of this heterogeneous interaction is complex, involving both physical and chemical effects. The metal surface is generally much...

The high vacancy rate in the office building market in the Netherlands is mainly explained by an overproduction of office space. The demand is expected to decrease further due to aging of the population, a changing economy and the decreasing need for space. A possible new end-user is the creative industry. The different working standards of this...

Houses were among the first structures that were built, and remain the most common type of building today. The design of housing has been the subject of architecture, while from a psychological point of view the meaning of home has been a major subject of research. These two different viewpoints are combined in this research to provide a tool...

Safe and cost effective operation are the highest priorities for civil aircraft. Considering that many events that can occur during normal aircraft operation which cause a reduction in the residual strength of the structure, a rigid adherence to inspection and maintenance schedules and timely repair of damage is required. Since Structural Health...

Service reliability is a key performance measure for transit agencies in increasing their service quality and thus ridership. Conventional reliability metrics are established based on vehicle movements and thus do not adequately reflect passenger’s experience. In the past few years, the growing availability of smart card data allows shifting the...

Investments in transport are increasingly motivated by the need to improve its resilience – the overall capability to maintain system integrity and functionality. Nonetheless, there is lack of knowledge on how to assess their impact on network resilience. This study investigates the resilience of alternative public transport networks by...
