In 2008 the Red Cross Red Crescent (RCRC) started with Forecast-based Financing pilots to improve existing Early-Warning Early Action systems. Forecast-based financing is a new methodology to prepare, deliver and respond in a more effective and efficient manner, based on hazard forecasts. Actions are triggered when a forecast exceeds a danger...

The olivocerebellar system plays a central role in motor learning, crucially contributing to the coordination, precision and accurate timing of movements. The system is formed by Purkinje cells (PC), the Deep Cerebellar Nucleus (DCN) and Inferior Olive (IO). Its input activate the PC which produces simple (SS) and complex spikes (CS). The latter...

Conversion coatings are generally required to enhance organic coating adhesion and corrosion resistance on galvanized steel. Until a few decades ago, chromate conversion coatings were the most common conversion coatings in the industry owing to their exceptional performance in this regard. However, the adverse effects associated with hexavalent...

Conventional passive prosthetic feet cannot provide net positive mechanical energy, causing a strong reduction in push-off work. This decrease the comfortable walking speed and increases the metabolic cost of walking in amputees, as more than half of the positive work performed during able-bodied gait is done during the powered plantar flexion...

The U_CODE (Urban Collective Design Environment) project started to create an environment for urban co-creation with citizen. To achieve this, U_CODE has designed and developed a new kind of participatory platform for different European countries. To have an effective co-creation session, U_CODE facilitators need to have a good knowledge and...

The purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of individually established buffer times, based on historical delay data, on the robustness of an operational stand and gate allocation schedule. Using flight schedules and the structural lay-out of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, a stand and gate allocation model is created using BEONTRA...

The integration of luminescent nanoparticles into transparent polymer matrices opens the way to affordable, scalable and efficient luminescent solar concentrators. A key challenge in the fabrication is to prevent agglomeration of the nanoparticles as this will drastically reduce the performance due to scattering effects. The incompatibility of...

A repetitive motion system supporting nano meter precision is positioned at high accelerations, which produces a force that disturbs the demanded accuracy requirements. Iterative learning control is used to learn optimal feedforward control signals for the attenuation this disturbance force. The iterative method comes with a limitation, as it...

To be able to understand the dynamic driving environment, an autonomous vehicle needs to predict the mo- tion of other traffic participants in the driving scene. Motion prediction can be done based on experience and recently observed series of past events, and entails reasoning about probable outcomes with these past ob- servations. Aspects that...

Sedimentation of particle suspensions is a relevant process to a variety of applications, such as the reclamation of land and chemical engineering systems. Direct numerical simulations of the settling of a single, two and multiple solid spheres under gravity in a square duct have been performed. The simulations involve 4 different Galileo...

Coal silos are often used in areas where space is scarce, or because of environmental issues. Enclosed storage reduces the impact on the environment. If enclosed storage is used, different properties are important. The material characteristics can be split up in basic properties (moisture, angle of repose, etc.) and physical properties (shape,...

Although there are systems that allow you to take your infant with you on a cargo bike, there were still many prejudices and concerns on this matter. Due to the transmitted vibrations, which could be a source of discomfort and a risk to human health, experts criticized travelling with infants on bicycles and cargo bikes. An infant safety seat is...

Max-plus algebra is an algebra that is entirely based on the mathematical operations max(a,b) and a+b, hence the name max-plus algebra. It can be used to describe Discrete Event Systems (DES) that require scheduling, such as a printer or train network. Max-plus algebra is studied because of its interesting properties, which make some non-linear...
