Businesses have leveraged Artificial Intelligence (AI) into many of their operational activities such as marketing, sales, and finance for its speed and cost-effectiveness. Lately, AI has also found applications in organizational recruitment processes. Unlike the conventional rule-based systems, present-day AI systems learn from data patterns...

The research concentrated on a behavior of the deep composite deck ComFlor210 under a concentrated force. The distribution of a concentrated force in ComFlor210 was studied numerically and analytically.
The finite element model of a composite slab with 5.4m span showed good agreement with test results in the elastic stage. The parametric...

High frame rate Doppler ultrasound imaging provides a new way to image blood motion at thousands of frames per second. It has gained popularity due to its high spatio-temporal resolution, which is re- quired to distinguish blood motion from clutter signals caused by slow moving tissue. Since the flow of blood inside the brain is coupled to...

In-plant transport systems are indispensable in facilities like manufacturing plants and warehouses as they enable the internal flow of goods. Facilities in the Maintenance Repair & Overhaul industry are no exception to this, but face some distinct challenges. This research presents an integrated approach to the conceptual design of an in...

In this Master Thesis project, the objective is to study how can Supervised Machine Learning be used to detect text-based rumours for humanitarian activities in Twitter. A model was developed in this project in order to classify a tweet at question whether is a rumour or not and whether is relevant to humanitarian activities or not. The findings...

This research aims to gain a deeper understanding on the financial, legal, organisational and technical considerations regarding the application of product-service systems. The goal is to identify how these characteristics could be implemented in project delivery methods to contribute to a circular economy. This design-based research is carried...

Self-driving cars is considered the next major step in the automotive industry and with automation in passenger vehicles, the driver can benefit from the freed up time for leisure or work, as he or she becomes the passenger. However, this is only possible if the drivers are comfortable during automated driving. The major issue here, is that the...

Space mission design is an activity that deals with a highly complex, non-linear system of which the requirements and characteristics are subject to regular change. This has consequences on the mathematical design but also the translation to hardware. In this thesis, we explore the use of Integrated Mission Design (IMD); a data-driven design...

The development of automated vehicles offers advantages for the transportation systems of the future. As a result, new and unknown challenges within the field of transportation arise. Moreover, there are uncertainties within the behavioural responses of travellers and amongst other things, the changes in the modal split within the transportation...

If weather conditions become rough, vessel motions with an increased amplitude are excited due to the presence of waves. The sagbend region of a suspended pipeline catenary may experience high loads due to these motions. When the loads become too high, the pipeline integrity cannot be guaranteed. In such case, the pipeline is lowered to the...

As a nonlinear alternative to the linear interpretation of arterial blood pressure waveform, soliton theory has been proposed to model arterial blood pressure by interpreting the pulsatile nature of pressure pulses in the viewpoint of soliton transmission. The existing solitary wave literature supports this interpretation by deriving Korteweg-de...

Due to the growing amount of air traveller in the coming decades, there is an increasing interest to improve the experience of the passengers. Especially travelling with hold-luggage is a big pain point and stress factor for passengers’. A new way of looking at this problem is providing a baggage pick-up and delivery service by independent...

Recent advances in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision have been showed to be promising for automated land use classification of remotely sensed data. However, current state-of-the-art per-pixel segmentation networks fail to accurately capture geometrical and topological properties on land use segmentation, as these methods have...

In this thesis, we investigate a sparse basis for ultrasound images, so that we can use sparse regularization in imaging. Actually, there are few previous researches explicitly demonstrating that medical ultrasound images can be sparsified for some dictionary. We consider various orthogonal transforms such as wavelet transforms, cosine...

During the last decades, large deployable structures are starting to be seen as a plausible configuration to multiple space missions, such as solar sailing, LEO (Low Earth Orbit) deorbiting missions or solar power generation. Technological advances in key areas, such as thin film solar cells or new deployment methods, as well as the...

99.94% of scientists believe in the effect of CO2 emissions on climate change. To tackle this, many parts of society must become sustainable. In Dutch road projects this drive for a sustainable transition is noticed in the last few years. Currently, the actions for climate inclusive road projects have not been successful. Climate consideration...

The shear capacity of concrete members is a major challenge of structural concrete research through the years. Many theoretical models have been developed and various experiments have been performed, focusing on the accurate prediction of the shear behavior. Many of the available theoretical models assume that a large contribution of the shear...

All over the world, coastal protection measures are taken, which can be soft (e.g. sand nourishments on sandy beaches) or hard (e.g. seadikes or seawalls). Special care has to be taken to design the transition between these hard and soft flood defences, as they are often vulnerable components of a coastal defence system. This study therefore...
