Offshore wind energy is expected to grow in the coming years: future plans for offshore wind farms total more than 98 GW. Financing is needed to realise these plans. Investment decisions partly depend on the uncertainty in energy yield predictions. It is therefore important that these energy yield predictions and their corresponding uncertainty...

Generalized polynomial chaos is known to fail for long-term integration, loosing its optimal convergence behavior and developing unacceptable error-levels. In this work, we present a time-dependent alternative of polynomial chaos in order to overcome these issues. This technique exists out of an on-the-fly reinitialization of the polynomial...

Uncertainty has an obstructing role in the decision-making of electrification investments for industrial actors. Future research by analysts is required to explore the potential of electrified industrial systems in their uncertain environments. In order to enable research to uncertainty in electrified industrial systems, the identification and...

The objective of this study is to make a study on dealing with uncertainty in the design of river training works. Based on this study, a method and several instruments have been developed that aim to improve a full and consistent use of a probabilistic design approach. This study is divided into three parts. The outline is rather unconventional...

Societal developments are timeless and occur at an ever increasing pace that affects demand for Corporate Real Estate (CRE). Real estate flexibility, as part of a CRE strategy, enables anticipation on those uncertain societal developments. Many studies refer to real estate flexibility, which could be grouped into physical, technical,...

A shift is taking place in planning culture from a rational planning approach, which is mainly about production, to a dynamic city approach which is more about the transformation and development of existing urban areas. Flexibility is a relevant subject in this. This graduation project has been aimed at developing an insight in flexibility in...

Years of turmoil in the banking sector have revealed the need to assess the performance of banks and explore the resilience of the banking system under adverse futures. Banks are not the safe houses everyone believed them to be, as the recent crisis of 2007 showed. Today, banks are highly uncertain dynamically complex systems that are...

During the last years, flood risk assessments at continental and global scales are emerging as useful tools for risk hotspot identification, support for international policy-making and harmonization of strategies for climate change adaptation. The emergence of these models comes to cover the growing demand for integrated, large-scale risk...

Networked infrastructures such as gas and water pipelines, roads, railroads or power grids provide essential utilities and services to society. Common characteristics of such infrastructures include high capital costs, generally long lifetimes and irreversibility once the construction of such networks have finished. In the design of these...

Wind power has proven to be one of the most versatile forms of renewable energy. Similarly, offshore wind is currently emerging as the most promising method of meeting the global target for low cost of renewable energy production, given the massive potential of wind at sea. However, from the wind turbine design point of view, the requirement of...

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...
