Different leader-follower behavior may be observed in models, such as group gathering, backtracking, and flexibility of the group. However, a comparison of these behaviors resulting in possible substantially different estimates of optimal evacuation procedures is lacking. Hence, we developed an Agent-based model in combination with exploratory...

Crowd management is a crucial element in keeping situations safe. Models can help understand in-event crowd management system more thoroughly, and illustrate potential effects of measures before they have to be implemented in real life. However, applications of crowd models for operational support on in-event crowd management are sparse. Two...

In 2020, the world was hit by a global pandemic through COVID-19, causing millions of deaths worldwide. The last two years proved that a health-related crisis like COVID-19 strains us as a society and the capacities of health systems worldwide. Severe infections of COVID-19 require higher capacities of hospital beds, ICUs with ventilators and...

The SARS-CoV-2 virus, more commonly known as the coronavirus, is arguably responsible for the biggest global crisis in recent history. In an attempt to effectively deal with this crisis, politicians around the globe have been using simulation models in their policy development. There are multiple types of modelling techniques used for...

In the military field, detailed simulation models are often used to get insight in the consequences of choices regarding the composition of a force and the extent to which it can be kept deployable. With detailed models, the main idea is to capture all real-world complexity relevant for decision-making processes. However, detailed models tend to...

For centuries humanity has been engineering the second largest river system in the Netherlands, the river Meuse system. This resulted in improvements for the shipping and water safety functions, but simultaneously has had a negative impact on other functions of the river Meuse system. Nature and water quality, for example, degraded due to the...

Accidents in buildings happen frequently and if people are not evacuated in time, this can have major consequences. The behaviour of building occupants is one of the most critical determinants herein. <br/>Evacuation behaviour consists of two phases: the response phase and the evacuation movement phase. During the response phase, a building...

Over the last decades, the world population has grown vastly and the percentage of people living in cities has increased. This process of urbanization has had a lot of implications for both safety management and research on evacuations. Due to this growth in urbanization, more high density gatherings are taking place, potentially resulting in...

With the population growing and countries becoming more affluent, diets shift. These global dietary shifts contribute greatly to increasing greenhouse gas emissions because of their higher carbon and water intensities. This development is problematic considering both the growth in our global economy as well as our population. It is therefore...

Evacuation strategies are critical in preventing casualties during emergency evacuations in buildings. As large-scale gatherings and high crowd densities in buildings occur more often, the need of relevant and effective evacuation strategies emerges. However, the domain of research that tries to identify possible ways to improve evacuation, i.e....

Acceleration of the energy transition requires increased mining of materials. An important material for the energy transition is nickel, used in the stainless steel required for all energy infrastructure and an important component for both stationary batteries and batteries used in electric vehicles. Previous research has been done on the global...

In this thesis, the System Dynamics (SD) model of the Full Reserve Banking (FRB) system built by Van Egmond and De Vries (2016) has been reviewed and improved. The improved model is used to see the effect of FRB system in preventing a long-lasting recession as one occurred in 2008. FRB system is a monetary reform which attempts to separate...
