The worldwide gas emissions regulations are getting more stringent. Together with the fluctuations of the finite fuel resources, it is expected that the use of unconventional and renewable fuels will increase. Hydrogen fuel is a zero-emission, renewable energy source. It has a great potential as one of the principal sustainable energy sources of...

The starting point of this thesis lies in the area on Groningen, Netherlands. More specifically, induced earthquake activity is observed in this area due to gas extraction activities, which reduce underground gas pressure. In combination with the location’s geomorphology, liquefaction can occur due to earthquake excitations. Furthermore, the...

At present, commercially available wearable sensors are only capable of tracking an individual’s physical activities and vital signs (such as heart rate). However, these devices fail to provide insight into fatigue itself. Fatigue is a broad term with many meanings. Fatigue in this paper refers to physiological changes where the muscle becomes...

Even if renewable energy generation is improving and diffusing rapidly, reliable energy access is still a major issue for a consistent part of the global population, with more than 1 billion people still lacking energy access globally. The vast majority of this share of population is living in remote rural areas of developing countries,...

In the upcoming years, en route airspace capacity will be limited by air traffic controller workload, requiring the introduction of automation to assist controllers with conflict detection and resolution. However, acceptance is considered to be one of the main obstacles in the introduction of novel automation. Individual-sensitive automation has...

This thesis introduces a fragility-based framework in order to perform a custom assessment of the complex Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. By applying a conditional approach to loading parameters, the statistical dependency between failure mechanisms and structure elements can be described separately for the strength and loading part of the...

The origin of the Galilean moons have puzzled the scientists for centuries. The most recent theories affirm that they formed within a circumplanetary disk (CPD), a disk of gas and dust very similar to the protoplanetary disk (PPD), from which the planets formed. However, there are still many uncertainties on this CPD, such as its size, mass, the...

Urban pluvial flooding occurs when the run-off converted rainfall exceeds the capacity of the sewer or stormwater system (Houston et al., 2011). This can result in damage to ecology, infrastructure, disruption to human activities, injuries and in the worst-case scenario, loss of life (Biniyam et al., 2017). With the expected increase in the...

Enabling mobile robots to autonomously navigate complex environments is essential for real-world deployment in commercial, industrial, military, health care, and domestic settings. Prior methods approach this problem by having the robot maintain an internal map of the world and then use a localization and planning method to navigate through the...

The accelerating growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to the development of many different communication protocols to enable the most optimal environment for the nature of IoT. Requiring long range and low power communication abilities, has resulted in LPWANs (low-power WANs); one such LPWAN is LoRaWAN (Long Range WAN) which is studied...

Surprisingly, liquid media of dispersed dry micron-sized particles can generate tremendous impact resistance, can grow solid protrusions when acoustically-vibrated and can cause a range of other peculiar phenomena to objects sinking in their interior, even though their appearance essentially remains ’liquid-like’. These heterogeneous mixtures of...

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) has the ability to reduce ground traffic congestion by enabling rapid on-demand flight through three-dimensional airspace. Due to the use of electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) vehicles with distributed electric propulsion, UAM operates under zero operational emissions and cheaper and at a lower noise level...

Many processes rely on the availability of the Internet. The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is widely used for exchanging routing information between routers and is essential for the successful operation of the Internet. Because BGP has not been designed with security in mind, BGP anomalies such as origin hijacks, route leaks, and link failure...
