Within estuaries one can often observe areas where the concentration of fine suspended sediments is higher than in the surrounding waters, called estuarine turbidity maxima (ETM). ETM play an important role in the natural and socio-economic value of estuaries. The suspended sediments can for example greatly diminish the value of the estuarine...

A lot of research has been done on the behaviour of pneumatic tyres and this has led to various tyre models and a lot of measurement data. However, in the specific field of bicycle tyres, not so much measurement data is available. However, in 2013 Andrew Dressel received the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering at the University of...

Voice user interfaces (VUI) have arrived. Worldwide, this technology is in the lift and enabling the exchange of information through voice interactions. As a result of the growing popularity of this technology, companies fanatically started with the designing of their own skills and/or actions. But although, this over-enthusiasm, leaves the ‘why...

Quantum computing promises an exponential speed-up of computation compared to what is nowadays achievable with classical computers. In this way, it enables the evaluation of more complex models and the breaching of current security algorithms. For the operation of a quantum system, many questions remain to be answered. Currently, there are...

Optimal selection of safety measures (SMs) is a challenging task for safety managers due to its importance, complexity, and incapability of traditional approaches in considering all the aspects of SMs optimal selection. Sophisticated mathematical models can be used to overcome the limitations of traditional approaches. However, setting the...

Gebiedsontwikkelingsopgaven in de hedendaagse verstedelijking zijn per definitie meerduidig. Het gaat in 2019 niet meer om een eenduidig doel zoals wijkvernieuwing of de vitalisering van een bedrijventerrein. De opgaven in de grote steden gaan over verdichting, vermenging, vergrijzing én segregatie, maar ook over betaalbaarheid, gezondheid,...

A parallelized flight simulator for the dynamic analysis of airborne wind energy (AWE) systems for ground- and fly-generation configurations is presented. The mechanical system comprises a kite or fixed-wing drone equipped with rotors and linked to the ground by a flexible tether. The time-dependent control vector of the simulator mimics real...

A marine project consists of series of operations, with each operation subject to a predefined operational limit and duration. If actual weather conditions exceed the operational limit, the operation cannot be executed and hence downtime occurs. An accurate assessment of uncertainties and the expected downtime during a marine project is...

We present a multidisciplinary design optimization method for the profile and structural reinforcement layout of a ram‐air kite rib. The aim is to minimize the structural elastic energy and to maximize the traction power of a ram‐air kite used for airborne wind energy generation. Because of the large deformations occurring during flight, a fluid...

We hebben in Nederland ongeveer 20.000 km waterkeringen en het is kostbaar en tijdrovend om deze regelmatig fysiek te inspecteren. Met radarsatellieten wordt deformatie op meer plekken, vaker, en nauwkeuriger gemeten. Hierdoor kan het gedrag van keringen continu worden gemonitord en kan afwijkend gedrag vroegtijdig worden gedetecteerd. Deze...

The modelling of social-ecological systems can provide useful insights into the interaction of social and environmental processes. However, quantitative social-ecological models should acknowledge the complexity and uncertainty of both underlying subsystems. For example, the agent-based models which are increasingly popular for groundwater...

Health literacy, i.e. the ability to read and understand medical text, is a relevant component of public health. Unfortunately, many medical texts are hard to grasp by the general population as they are targeted at highly-skilled professionals and use complex language and domain-specific terms. Here, automatic text simplification making text...

The present study aims to assess and advance the prediction skill of solar radiation in high resolution weather forecasts by large-eddy simulations (LES). The GPU-Resident Atmospheric Simulation Platform (GRASP) was used to simulate the atmosphere around the Cabauw experimental site for atmospheric research (CESAR) in the Netherlands. Large...

In this research, known theory and methods for electric networks are translated and applied to gas transport networks.

The networks are represented by directed graphs with their corresponding incidence matrices. The theory about these is extensively discussed in addition to their relevance to Kirchoff's Circuit Laws.

Several...

Organisations need to go through continuous change in order to maintain a sustainable competitive advantage. This change is often expressed in a vision which should engage and involve all stakeholders. However, implementing change successfully turns out to be a challenge since two in three change processes stall. Ink Strategy is a visual...

An exploration into the stability of 3D printed thin-walled concrete elements during manufacturing is presented. The failure mechanisms, material parameters and analysis methods are presented. Self-buckling is the dominant failure mechanism, where the Young's modulus plays an important role. Material experiments to assess the Young's modulus are...

During the primary oil recovery, wells are drilled into the reservoir, and due to natural driving forces, the oil flows to the surface through these production wells. Unfortunately, the production of oil in this first stage is typically between only five and ten percent of the oil in place in the reservoir. In the secondary oil recovery some...

Pilots are an important asset in the operations of airlines, as with insufficient pilots, an airline cannot operate the planned schedule. The long-term crew planning problem aims to optimally plan the supply and demand for pilots as well as methods and strategies for closing the gap between these. The demand is determined by the number of pilots...
