Bulk handling plays a significant role in a range of industries, such as the mining, agricultural, chemical, and pharmaceutical industry. For the mining industry, economic development results in an increasing demand of steel and consequently the raw materials used for steel production, such as cokes and iron ore. Dealing with bulk material leads...

This thesis investigates how artificial intelligence can support e-mental health for depression, i.e. the delivery of treatment and prevention interventions for depression using technology. E-mental health for depression is a promising means for bridging the treatment gap since it addresses many of the barriers that prevent people in need of...

This thesis comprises several experiments involving silicon nitride trampoline membranes. These membranes are excellent mechanical resonators and can be fabricated with desirable optical properties. Their dynamical behavior, particularly the interaction of their mechanical motion with light, is of interest for optomechanics and sensing...

The pledge for a carbon-free energy system in 2050 requires significant investments into renewable energy sources (RES). The relevant questions are: what technologies to select, where to build them, how much the capacities are, and at what cost. In order to answer these techno-economic questions, optimization models are commonly used to sketch a...

In a world replete with observations (physical as well as virtual), many data sets are represented by time series. In its simplest form, a time series is a set of data collected sequentially, usually at fixed intervals of time. In a number of applications, the mean and the variance of the time series is time-invariant and there is no seasonality...

Scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) can capture detail on the single nanometer length scale through the interaction of a tightly focused electron beam with a sample, but this impressive spatial resolution is not matched with a capability to resolve dynamic processes on the ultrafast time scale. A variety of processes occur at nanosecond and...

The software development life cycle (SDLC) for a developer has increased in complexity and scale. With the advent of DevOps processes, the gap between development and operations teams reduced significantly. Developers are now expected to perform different roles from coding to operational support in the new model of software development. This...

Khramenkova, E. (author)
In this thesis, we have presented and investigated the possible strategies for modelling complex heterogeneous catalytic systems in operando regimes. By introducing modern computational approaches to sample the potential energy surface of the catalytic active site, we have attempted to account for the reactive conditions, solvent presence,...

In the context of rapid urban transformations, this thesis explores the possible preservation strategies for historic military systems that used to be embedded in extra-urban settings, but that now are absorbed in the development dynamics of complex metropolitan areas. The research stems from the main peculiarity of these heritage systems:...

The aim of the thesis is to develop methods and algorithms for the development of a robust perception system that is capable of dealing with adverse weather conditions. Robust environmental perception is important in order to guarantee safety for the automated vehicle and the road users in the neighborhood. To create a robust perception system,...

Housing inequality is a growing concern in our society. In recent decades, this inequality has been exacerbated by the phenomenon of housing being financialized and commodified as a means for wealth accumulation. Management of financial institutions and housing markets has become the centre of attention in policy discussion. The questions of how...

Cells are the fundamental units of life. They make up all living things, from bacteria that live in the soil, to archea that give thermal springs their bright colors, to trees and humans. All of these cells share some common functions: they build themselves from basic building blocks, following the instructions of their genetic blueprint, and...

de Wit, F.P. (author)
When waves propagate towards the coast, nonlinear interactions occur under the influence of decreasing water depth and variable ambient currents. This changes the initially harmonic wave shape into a nonlinear wave shape due to the presence of bound waves accompanying the freely propagating primary waves. The nonlinear wave shape ranges from...

There are an increasing number of optimal-design paradigms used in architectural design nowadays. In these paradigms, a design task is formulated, or partially formulated, as an optimization problem. Multi-Disciplinary Optimization and Multi-Objective Optimization, as two important optimal-design paradigms, have shown their great potential in...

This thesis starts with a worrisome observation tied to various phenomena across modern built environments: humans today are experiencing a weakened relatedness to and reduced intimacy with the world around them. In stark contrast to the general trend, however, most Chinese literati gardens maintain their traditional rich conditions, enabling...

At the end of 2019, the European Union (EU) put forward the European Green Deal to facilitate the technological progress necessary to achieve CO2-neutrality by 2050. Such a monumental achievement would require massive investments in infrastructure for the harvesting, storage and the transnational transportation of green energy. To date, the more...

Majorana zero modes (MZMs) are a topic of intense research as they constitute the main building block of topological qubits - a qubit type with potentially enhanced coherence time. A promising way to create these quantum states is to couple a one-dimensional (1D) semiconducting segment with spin-orbit interaction to a superconductor, in the...

Vernacular heritage sites encompass customs, practices, places, objects, artistic expressions, and values that are innate to a particular place and time. Climate knowledge of the particular place and time is embedded in vernacular settlements and lifestyles along with other environmental, cultural, and societal determinants of the place. Rebuilt...
