Genoa is, and always has been, a fragmented city. This condition originates on the one hand in its physical location and on the other in the nature of the genovese people. This results in an urban archipelago: a combination of smaller patches of city, functioning on their own, as independent systems. This, in combination with a distinct...

Recent major tsunami events generated by earthquakes inundated coastal cities and caused extreme destruction and loss of human lives. The collapse of coastal bridges due to tsunami wave impact represents a huge obstacle for rescue works. The need to understand tsunami effects and develop tsunami-resilient bridges became apparent in the aftermath...

Dam reservoirs form a crucial part for human society storing water, controlling floods, providing hydropower, water for irrigation and drinking. Annually 1% of the worldwide dam reservoirs storage capacity is lost, caused by sedimentation. The inflow of sediment and reduction of flow velocity and turbulence in the reservoir pro- vides favourable...

Interobserver reliability is a problem in behavioural studies. In order to increase the interobserver reliability, a formal checker is used to study behaviour. Together with a clear ethogram of basic behaviours, this tool can be used to automatically check for more complex behaviours and thus reducing the risk of biases introduced by human...

In the Netherlands 2 million tons organic bio-waste is not fully sorted and ends up burned or landfilled. This process is unnecessarily harming the health of people, animals and our planet every year. With our waste quantities only increasing, this is an important topic on the European agenda.

The creation of user-driven, self...

Open Relation Extraction (ORE) aims to find arbitrary relation tuples between entities in unstructured texts. Even though recent research efforts yield state-of-the-art results for the ORE task by utilizing neural network based models, these works are solely focused on the English language. Methods were proposed to tackle the ORE task for...

In this thesis research, dutch aircraft noise model (NRM) calculations are compared to measurements to analyze the aircraft classification used in the model. To do so, a new implementation of the model has been set up to calculate with LVNL trackdata and NOMOS measurement data. First, the classification approach is analyzed as prescribed, which...

Cavitating tip vortices of marine propellers are the main contributors to underwater radiated ship noise due to their dynamic behavior and broadband sound spectrum. Experimentally, it is challenging to get a detailed insight into the vortex structure which makes it difficult to understand the noise generating mechanisms. Although Computational...

The principal function of neurons in the cortex is to communicate and process information. A characteristic of this communication is the high trial-to-trial spike variability. To explain this variability, balanced network models have been introduced. The interaction between excitatory and inhibitory neurons in those models, can perform active...

This thesis investigates several kinds of models of describing multi-commodity dynamical flow. Three models have been developed for a spatial logistic network, on which packages are delivered by vehicles and another
model was developed to describe interactions between the customers, the stores and the deliverers, which does not explicitly...

It is expected that the automotive industry will be facing a radical shift, going from human driven cars to cars that are driving autonomously. In this project I started out with performing an in depth literature research to get a good understanding on what is expected to change. My expectations that the design and solutions for a self-driving...

In the competitive road race-cycling sport, having a frame that is lighter and aerodynamic, grants a competitive advantage. If we look at the market, the lighter and expensive bicycles are made from carbon where the cheaper models are made out of metal-alloys. This makes the consumer biased towards metal-alloy frames, mostly about the weight. To...

Throughout the years, incremental iterative approaches have been shown to be excellent tools in describing the complex behaviour of structures under a wide range of circumstances. However, robustness issues arise for quasi-brittle structures due to the potential lost of convergence during the development of abrupt fracture mechanisms. In order...

This work simulates the impact of horizontal motion on the Symphony wave power device. To that end the existing time domain simulation is expanded with a module that simulates horizontal motion in the 2d plane. This extension is coupled with the existing operational modelling. the extension is based on a mathematical motion model based on rigid...

Asthma is a chronic disease and is characterized by inflammations of the airways. Since there is no cure available yet, asthma treatment is aimed at asthma control, to minimize patients’ symptom experiences and to prevent patients of having exacerbations (lung attacks). A key driver in this, is the extent to which patients adhere to their...

The non-linear relation between Evapotranspiration (ET) and the atmospheric moisture demand in terms of vapor pressure deficit (VPD) has been widely reported. Observations point towards a diverse range of potential drivers; however, without uncovering why the identified factors are found to control diurnal ET-VPD hysteresis. Modelling efforts...

Aircraft component maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) outsourcing is a rather new phenomenon. Nowadays, component support solutions that are flexible with predictable cost are pursued. In other words, the time to restore and cost of MRO are aimed to be minimised. This research project is collaboration with one of the worlds leaders in...

Ortovox, a mountain sports brand, existing for almost 40 years, is undergoing a rapid change. Through substantial growth, the organization has been pushed into a new position. The niche market was given up for a place among the leading brands in the outdoor industry. The new situation results in fundamentally different market requirements and...

The risk allocation in DBFM projects is currently a hot topic, whereby multiple contractors have withdrawn from the procurement of these projects. This research provides a practical guidance in the risk allocation process of DBFM projects, consisting of design principles of literature and lessons learned from practice. The design principles that...

A new approach is needed for redeveloping peri-urban railway stations in the Netherlands, like Amsterdam Lelylaan,to solve a set of pressing issues in their specific context: the monocentric character of many of our cities, the poor quality of public space around peripheral railway stations, and the disconnection between the local and the city...
