Different leader-follower behavior may be observed in models, such as group gathering, backtracking, and flexibility of the group. However, a comparison of these behaviors resulting in possible substantially different estimates of optimal evacuation procedures is lacking. Hence, we developed an Agent-based model in combination with exploratory...

The effect of using decision support systems in decision-making processes characterized by time pressure, uncertainty, and dynamism is still very limited and debated among researchers. By utilizing a case study that concerns the employment of a DSS to assist the procedures of intercepting fugitives undertaken by the Dutch National Police, this...

Currently, the design of floating offshore wind systems is primarily based on mid-fidelity models with empirical drag forces. The tuning of the model coefficients requires data from either experiments or high-fidelity simulations. As part of the OC6 (Offshore Code Comparison Collaboration, Continued, with Correlation, and unCertainty (OC6) is a...

This study quantifies the uncertainties in the projected changes in potential longshore sediment transport (LST) rates along a non-straight coastline. Four main sources of uncertainty, including the choice of emission scenarios, Global Circulation Model-driven offshore wave datasets (GCM-Ws), LST models, and their non-linear interactions were...

The comparably low driving ranges of battery electric vehicles (BEV) cause time-consuming recharging stops if long distances have to be covered. Thus, navigation systems not only have to compute routes leading from the BEV's current position to the destination, but also to plan recharging stops. This type of routing problem is often modeled...

Fracture networks are abundant in subsurface applications (e.g., geothermal energy production, CO<sub>2</sub> sequestration). Fractured reservoirs often have a very complex structure, making modeling flow and transport in such networks slow and unstable. Consequently, this limits our ability to perform uncertainty quantification and increases...

This research considers Amels LE and SX super yachts. Bare hull, appended hull, and actuator disk simulations were performed using CFD, and compared to sea trial results. The results of the CFD are unique because they were generated after the sea trials were conducted, resulting in the ship speed in CFD and sea trial being similar. The results...

It is our choices that make us who we are. To lead a better life, we have to make better decisions. Nowadays, decisions are increasingly made in complex contexts, in a host of different application domains. Because of that, we need more reliable decision analysis methodologies to improve our decisions. The ability to deal with multi...

Offline reinforcement learning, or learning from a fixed data set, is an attractive alternative to online reinforcement learning. Offline reinforcement learning promises to address the cost and safety implications of taking numerous random or bad actions online, which is a crucial aspect of traditional reinforcement learning that makes it...

For the transportation of the produced energy at offshore windfarms to the onshore grid, export cables have to be installed in the sea bed. Usually, at first trenches are dredged, in which approximately one month later the cables are installed. During this period the trench should remain sufficiently open to install the cables, fulfilling the...

<br/>The port of Rotterdam is the largest seaport in Europe. To maintain its position, the harbor will have to anticipate global transitions such as transferring to sustainable energy. Hydrogen is seen as a promising energy carrier; however, future demand is uncertain. The current research investigates decision making under uncertainty and...

The increasing capacity of offshore wind energy around the world brings challenges in Operation and Maintenance (O&amp;M) management. Over the past years, many studies have focused on developing sound maintenance strategies in order to minimize maintenance cost or maximize availability. One of the promising maintenance strategies is...

Energy transition goals to reduce carbon emissions are a driver key for an increase share of variable renewable energy sources (vRES). To achieve 49% of CO2 reduction by 2030 compared to 1990, the Netherlands set a plan to generate 84 TWh of electricity from renewable energy sources, where 35 TWh need to be generated exclusively from onshore...

Ageing infrastructures and shortage of financing induce the need for optimising public infrastructure replacements. From an economic perspective, classical net present value comparison is traditionally the method of choice to decide on investments and replacements. The current research observes that typical infrastructure related features make...

The amount of air traffic worldwide is increasing, with an adverse effect on aircraft noise in the vicinity of airports as a result. Measurements and calculations have complementary benefits and limitations for the assessment of aircraft noise. A common method for the calculation of aircraft noise is ECAC Doc. 29. Various improvements of this...

The problem that discussed is less an issue to the contexts, but a general critical reflection on the disciplinary of architecture. The determinant role of architects in design process and free interpretation of the inhabitants pose the conflictions. Our (architects) creativities and imaginations are confined within the given role and limited...

With the upsurge of disruptive trends such as digitalisation and automation, organisations have become more vulnerable to the consequences of these disruptive trends. The Harbourmaster is responsible for facilitating a safe and efficient port-call-process. Digitalisation and automation might lead to opportunities and threats in the port-call...

Unexpected disruptions occur frequently in railway systems, during which many train services cannot run as scheduled. This paper deals with timetable rescheduling during such disruptions, particularly in the case where all tracks between two stations are blocked for a few hours. In practice, the disruption length is uncertain, and a disruption...
