Urban physics is a multi-scale and interdisciplinary field, that combines science and engineering for the study of physical processes in urban areas. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is considered a powerful tool for the study of these processes. In the context of microscale phenomena these processes refer to the transfer of heat and mass in...

Today’s climate change creates a serious issue, which forces us to act by reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions across every sector. Making changes towards a sustainable world takes time and creates competition. Hydrogen has the potential to fuel a ‘clean’ economy because it is a carbon free energy carrier that can be produced from fossil fuels as...

This thesis focuses on the challenges Istanbul faces due to extensive urbanisation and global warming. The metropole has become vulnerable to climate change, especially to the increasing threat of floods. As a result of urbanisation and poor city planning, the green spaces have decreased considerably in Istanbul, which reduced stormwater...

As a solution to the high greenhouse gas emissions and declining quality of life caused by the private vehicle, the mobility hub is introduced. The mobility hub is a place where multiple modalities come together, including public transport and shared mobility. As the mobility hub is a relatively new innovation, limited research is available on...

Everything around us is rapidly changing. Whole new blocks of buildings are built, huge infrastructural projects are constructed and so on. Hence, there is a need of a reliable and up-to-date inventory of the area and the objects of interest for mapping and monitoring assets and their changes. An answer of this upcoming need is an automated...

Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) is a geothermal technique that is an important component in the transition towards renewable energy in the heating and cooling industry, which accounts for half of the world's energy consumption. However, the technology has not yet been implemented in many countries. The main reason is that extensive...

Global plastic production increased from 200 million metric tons in 2002, to 359 million metric tons in 2019. It is estimated that plastics in the marine environment weigh more than 150 million metric tons and by 2050 could even outweigh the mass of fish in the ocean. Over half of the world population (55%) nowadays lives in urban areas and...

Hydrogen, as a fuel, will soon play a key role in helping economies transition to more sustainable practices. Having always garnered attention due to its non-polluting nature, the costs associated with its production have stood in the way of it being more widely used in society. Since the cost of clean energy to produce hydrogen is one of the...

This research strives to contribute to the solution of the Amsterdam waste problem by improving the location determination of the various container types within the Centrum area. One of the modalities is an autonomous surface vehicle (ASV), and in this case, a Roboat. Since it is not possible to assign all demand to one modality, also trucks and...

In the Netherlands, almost half of the energy supplied to households is used for space heating. Since natural gas supplies heating fuel to almost 95% of residential buildings Dutch municipalities have to investigate the possibilities of diversifying their heating infrastructure in order to comply with government environmental goals. Possible...

More than half of Mexico’s population is living in a type of poverty, recognized as a multidimensional challenge with a geographical context. Even though Mexico’s poverty is measured in a multifaceted way, the concept of Energy Poverty has not been studied, per se, by governmental institutions. It is until recently that the study of this concept...
