Vermeulen, Stefan (author)
The two urban challenges of the mobility shift and industrial redevelopment come together at the site of the Merwe-Vierhavens (M4H) in Rotterdam. The mobility shift consists of the transition from polluting vehicles towards sustainable alternatives, like electric vehicles, and the use of public transport and slow mobility. The industrial shift...

Collaboration between the Global South and Global North is inevitable. It can work. It can be emphatic, effective, and more equal. However, there is a deeply embedded history of colonialism involving power asymmetries that give rise to the dismissal of value systems, which pervert this type of collaboration from being truly realised. Hence,...

Acidizing is a widely used technique for intensification of geothermal wells. At certain conditions, acid injection results in a formation of highly conductive channels, e.g. wormholes. The associated rock matrix dissolution is highly nonlinear and may influence the fluid flow as well as rock properties. Wormhole patterns and breakthrough time...

Due to increasing cost pressure, disturbances from customs and an opportunity seen in reducing costs by increasing the procurement and construction in the Far East, Damen Shipyards Gorinchem is changing the requirements for its supply chain. Changes to the supply chain however not only inflicts a large number of stakeholders, but the cost...

In this work, we present the results of a preliminary uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis study of the Molten Salt Fast Reactor (MSFR) behavior at steady-state performed by applying a non-intrusive Polynomial Chaos Expansion (PCE) approach. An in-house high-fidelity multi-physics simulation tool is used as reactor reference...

This study proposes a framework to analyze accelerated degradation testing (ADT) data in the presence of inspection effects. Motivated by a real dataset from the electric industry, we study two types of effects induced by inspections. After each inspection, the system degradation level instantaneously reduces by a random value. Meanwhile, the...

The energy transition is driving extensive changes to global energy systems, including the electrification of heating and mobility, increased renewable electricity generation, and a shift towards sustainable gases like green hydrogen. These changes will need to be accompanied by major investments in energy infrastructure, especially considering...

The terrorist use of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) weapons is a worst-case scenario for most security agencies. Yet traditionally, the risk of CBRN-terrorism is characterized as a so-called “high impact – low probability” threat. Academics and analysts consider it challenging for terrorists to acquire these weapons and,...

Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a well-established nuclear imaging modality for studying functional and pathological properties of the brain. Conventional general purpose SPECT systems typically offer a spatial resolution of about 10 mm with a sensitivity of 0.01-0.02%. A few dedicated brain SPECT scanners have been...

Automated vehicles (AVs) have been a dream for a long time. From science fiction in the 1930s to countless prototypes, extensive road testing, and first use cases at present, the technology has clearly come a long way. So too has the vision of practitioners and academics matured to recognise the various potential benefits (e.g., accessibility,...

Without our musculoskeletal system, which consists of bones, joints, and muscles, we would not be able to live. Our bones are responsible for the protection of our organs, the support of our body, and they enable our mobility. Therefore, it is important to keep them healthy. This is done by cells who repair small cracks and fractures caused by...

This paper studies a variation of the pickup and delivery formulation with time windows which is applied to air cargo export operations. The formulation is extended using three factors. 1) Pickup nodes are positioned at freight forwarders. Delivery nodes are located at ground handlers. Trucks can only visit one freight forwarder. 2) Dock...

In the past decade the role of wooden fences, containing brushwood and branches, in efforts to restoring mangroves has been recognized since a vast reduction of mangroves occurred along the Mekong deltaic coast. This study aims to better understand the hydrodynamic performance related to the possible mechanism of wave reduction and the influence...

The Free Energy Principle, which underlies Active Inference (AI), is a way to explain human perception and behaviour. Previous literature has hinted at a relation between AI and Linear-Quadratic Gaussian (LQG) control, the latter being a textbook controller. AI and LQG are, however, defined with different settings in mind: LQG has access to...

Scandals in which governmental ADM tools played a role, have recently brought<br/>about political and societal debate about the potential harms to citizens that such automated systems potentially bring. This thesis focuses on ADM systems which contain an AI component. Based on the knowledge gaps perceived,<br/>the main research question for this...

Least Squares Support Vector Machines (LS-SVMs) are state-of-the-art learning algorithms that have been widely used for pattern recognition. The solution for an LS-SVM is found by solving a system of linear equations, which involves the computational complexity of O(N^3). When datasets get larger, solving LS-SVM problems with standard methods...

Self-supervised deep learning methods have leveraged stereo images for training monocular depth estimation. Although these methods show strong results on outdoor datasets such as KITTI, they do not match performance of supervised methods on indoor environments with camera rotation. Indoor, rotated scenes are common for less constrained...

This thesis describes the experimental development of new dynamic hydrogels based on reversible thiol conjugate additions. Redox-controlled hydrogels and self-healing injectable hydrogels have been achieved by introducing reversible thiol conjugate additions to crosslink polymers, leading to hydrogel formation. The overall objective in this...
