Environmental analysis should be performed early in the Research and Development (R&D) phases of new technologies to timely determine potential impact and, thereby, include prevention and minimization of unfavorable ecological impact into the innovation process. Here, we demonstrate the application of anticipatory Life Cycle Assessment ...

Different scholars have tried to forecast the total cost of ownership (TCO) of electric vehicles (EVs). These studies use different implicit assumptions. This research aims to develop a more comprehensive EV TCO forecasting framework based on a combination of literature review and interviews. The main finding is a framework of 34 factors that...

During the development for railway, ballasted track is dominant structure and makes up more than 95% of the whole track modes. However, its shortage is considerable in high speed railway and heavy haul system. Regarding to the ballasted railway track's defects as particle breakage, settlement, and geometry irregularity which lead to enormous...

In epoxy-bitumen systems, temperature contributes to the development of physiochemical and mechanical characteristics during curing (chemical hardening) and at the long-term service (oxidative aging) of pavement structures. Hardening (i.e., chemical or oxidative controlled) is a complex phenomenon in epoxy-modified binders and the in-depth...

Majorana bound states (MBSs) are novel particles predicted to be created when superconductor/semiconductor hybrid structures with strong spin-orbit coupling are subjected to strong magnetic fields. Expected to exhibit non-Abelian exchange statistics, they could form the basis of a new kind of quantum computer that is inherently protected from...

In this dissertation, we analyse the safe use of medical technology, considering the training of users, technical demands of used devices and instruments, and the surgical workflow. As each of these elements will vary depending on the experience of the user, the equipment used, and variations in the environment; a unique set of parameters for...

The aim of Transmission Expansion Planning (TEP) studies is to decide which, where, and when new grid elements should be built in order to minimize the total system cost. The lumpiness of the investment decisions, together with the large size of the problem, make the problem very hard to solve. Consequently, methods should be put in place to...

Weather observation is becoming more important than ever because extreme weather, such as tropical cyclones, thunderstorms and heavy rain, is more common nowadays. To observe and forecast the atmospheric phenomena at high spatial and temporal resolution, weather radar is well recognized as an effective tool. The prerequisite of using weather...

Wetlands are among the most productive environments in the world. Around 6% of the Earth's land surface is covered by wetlands, which are key to preserving biodiversity. Wetlands provide multiple services like a source for water supply and a shelter for numerous species of fauna and flora. Wetlands are therefore of immense socio-economic as well...

Worldwide population growth, water scarcity, and climate change contribute to an urgent need for alternative water sources for irrigation water, industry water, and, in some countries even, drinking water. The implementation of municipal sewage reclamation is an upcoming trend in water treatment. The use of municipal sewage has the advantage of...

Preventing solidification cracking is an essential prerequisite for the safety of a welded structure. An undetected solidification crack has the potential to cause premature failure during service. Two conditions generated by a weld thermal cycle are responsible for the initiation of solidification cracks. The first is the presence of excessive...

Developing intelligent decision making systems in the real world requires planning algorithms which are able to deal with sources of uncertainty and constraints. An example can be found in smart distribution grids, in which planning can be used to decide when electric vehicles charge their batteries, such that the capacity limits of lines are...

The growing popularity of workflows in the cloud domain promoted the development of sophisticated autoscaling policies that allow automatic allocation and deallocation of resources. However, many state-of-the-art autoscaling policies for workflows are mostly plan-based or designed for batches (ensembles) of workflows. This reduces their...

Regional goods delivery fulfils an essential socio-economic function, in particular, in dense urbanized areas in countries like The Netherlands. Shippers (producers or traders), transport service providers, businesses and private households favour road transport, because of logistic and financial reasons. Delivery and pick-up vehicles are mainly...

Evaluation and testing are major steps in the development of any information system, particularly if it is to be used in high-risk contexts such as conflicts. While thus far there are various approaches for testing against technology requirements; usability or usefulness, there is a lack of a comprehensive evaluation framework that combines the...
