We are rapidly entering the era of genomics. The dramatic cost reduction of DNA sequencing due to the introduction of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) techniques has resulted in an exponential growth of genetics data. The amount of data generated, and its associated processing into useful information, poses serious computational challenges. Here...

We report on the results obtained from a dense seismic deployment over a geothermal reservoir located on the tip of the Reykjanes peninsula, SW Iceland. The available seismic stations have continuously recorded the ambient-seismic wave field between April 2014 and August 2015. Using seismic interferometry (SI), seismic responses were generated...

The problem of smoothing dry weather inflow variations for
a Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) that receives sewage from
multiple mixed sewer systems is presented, together with a first rough
solution algorithm. A simplification followed by a naive translation into
a zero-one linear programming problem results in 1152...

The Sand Engine is an example of a feeder nourishment that is intended to nourish coastal systems. This strategy is based on placing sediments highly concentrated at one location, from which it is expected to spread alongshore over large distances on decadal timescales.

Here the morphological development of the Sand Engine mega feeder...

Challenging neighbourhoods in large cities most often lack social coherence. Meaningful social interaction between citizens in such neighbourhoods is needed to increase coherence, and games may be a means to this end. This paper reflects on the structure of a dedicated game design workshop with teenagers from 12 to 16 years of age designed to...

The China Government enacted the Provisional Regulations on Real Estate Registration (RER) in July 2015. These regulations were in full operation from the beginning of 2016. In this context, real estate refers to land, sea, houses, trees and other fixed objects which have spatial distribution and are subject to social and economic activities in...

Landslides triggered by hydraulic perturbations are initiated by a decrease in the effective stress, and hence the shear strength of the soil, as a result of the increase in pore water pressure which might occur due to either rain infiltration or exfiltration of water from the bedrock. However, several factors including the shape and hydraulic...

The utilization of natural processes for engineering purposes has been widely discussed in recent years since they might enable the development of cost-effective, robust and environmentally compatible engineering technologies. Biomineralization is one of the many possible biogeochemical processes that is currently investigated in detail. We...

We report on the results obtained from a dense seismic deployment over a geothermal reservoir. The reservoir has been producing continuously for almost a decade and is located on the tip of the Reykjanes peninsula, SW Iceland. The seismic stations on top of the reservoir have continuously recorded the ambient seismic wavefield between April 2014...

Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) have been developed over the last decades all over the world. SDI is the integration of several components to create a platform which enables a wide variety of stakeholders to access, share and use spatial data in an efficient and effective way. To stimulate the SDI development effectively and efficiently, it...

Spectral elements with mass lumping allow for explicit time stepping and are therefore attractive for modelling seismic wave propagation. Their formulation on rectangular elements is straighforward, but for tetrahedra only elements up to degree 3 are known. To preserve accuracy after mass lumping, these elements require additional nodes that...

Following four annual C@merata evaluations at MediaEval, in which natural language phrases about music must be mapped to passages in MusicXML scores, we have developed a representation which captures the meaning of a text about music as a JSON feature structure. We have written a system to convert any text to this repres entation, comprising 23...

In [1,2] Kulisch defines (ordered) ringoids and vectoids to provide a theoretical basis for computer arithmetic and interval arithmetic. One interesting aspect of his treatment is the search for necessary and sufficient conditions for a meaningful notion of negation and zero. In this paper we consider this both from the point of view of...

After the primary extraction in oil reservoirs up to 60 % of the oil remains trapped in the reservoir (Sen, 2008). Therefore, different mechanisms have been developed to get the oil out to the reservoir. One of these techniques is Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) which is a technique used to produce more oil in a secondary extraction by...

The provision of sanitation service requires fulfilment of system processes including containment, conveyance, treatment, and disposal/reuse—or the sanitation value chain (Trémolet, 2011; Blackett et al., 2014; Tilley et al., 2014) as shown in Figure 1. The conveyance process is further divided into emptying and transport for decentralized...

The high vacancy rate in the office building market in the Netherlands is mainly explained by an overproduction of office space. The demand is expected to decrease further due to aging of the population, a changing economy and the decreasing need for space. A possible new end-user is the creative industry. The different working standards of this...

The objective of this study is to get a new insight into in-situ characterization of fluid mud layers. Water Injection Dredging has been performed to create a fluid mud layer in the 8th Petroleumhaven at the Port of Rotterdam. Four measuring tools, conventional multi-beam echo-sounder, DensX, Graviprobe and Rheocable have been used to monitor...

This paper presents a fast consolidation model suitable for long-term morphodynamic simulations. This model is applicable for muddy systems where sedimentation rates are smaller than consolidation rates, assuming quasi-equilibrium of the consolidating bed. It compares to the consolidation model developed by Sanford (2008). However, in that model...
