Jhinkoe-Rai, Suryand (author)
Flood risks and its consequences become more and more challenging and are demanding for the currently present dike systems and hydraulic structures in the Netherlands. This automatically raises the question for the possibility of adjustable temporary deployable flood defences that work autonomously. Nowadays it is more likely that a standard...

The study explores the potential impact of accelerated sea level rise on coastal flood risk in the Netherlands, particularly focusing on the Plan B NL2200 approach. Sea levels are expected to rise faster than initially thought due to factors like Antarctica's melting ice. The Sea Level Rise Knowledge Program in the Netherlands investigates...

This research addresses how Ricanau Mofo, a low-lying village in Surinam, can become a more water-adaptive and sustainable village, while it faces land erosion, river bank erosion, changing rainfall patterns and sea level rise. It is urgent to intervene, as these issues are expected to increase in occurrence due to climate change. Constraints...

This thesis evaluates flood insurance solutions for the Netherlands, focusing on the repercussions of primary flood defence failures. Recognizing the amplified need for a solid safety system due to climate change, the study uses a comprehensive approach, including literature review, expert opinion, and numerical modelling, to assess existing...

After overtopping, the most common failure mechanism in the world that leads to a dike breach is the instability of the inner slope. Two stability calculations are required for the semi-probabilistic assessment of inner slope stability. One calculation is without significant overtopping and the other calculation is with significant overtopping...

Under growing pressures of climate change, it is vital for our society to implement cost-effective reinforcements in a flood defence system. This thesis proposes a method for optimising reinforcements in a flood defence system with multiple lines of defence under sea level rise.

Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) have become increasingly popular human motion estimation due to their portability, self-contained features, and cost-effectiveness compared to marker-based sensing systems which rely on external cameras to observe the position of the markers. Over the years, many studies have proposed various models and...

Loop Robots develops and operates the next generation of fully autonomous disinfection robots in hospitals and healthcare settings. Accurate localization is essential in order to navigate reliably and effectively disinfect the tight hallways and corners of a patient room, operating room, or intensive care unit in a hospital. Odometry, or dead...

Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) have emerged as a powerful tool for classification tasks due to their ability to outperform traditional methods. Nevertheless, their effectiveness relies heavily on the availability of large, varied, and labeled datasets, which are often not available. To counter this constraint, data augmentation techniques...

Where water flows, prosperity follows.<br/><br/>Many prosperous areas around the world are situated near large bodies of water such as oceans, seas, and rivers. These bodies of water play a vital role in enhancing the prosperity of societies through various means. They provide convenient access to transportation, food, recreation, and many other...

Land subsidence poses significant damage risks to residential real estate, including pile rot, differential settlements, pluvial flood risk, and dewatering risk amounting tens of thousands of euros. In the Netherlands, the number of affected houses has surpassed one million and is estimated to reach two million, accounting for a quarter of all...

The sea level is rising, possibly by one meter, by the end of this century. The Netherlands is preparing for this scenario through Kennisprogramma Zeespiegelstijging (KP-ZSS). One of the goals is to determine the hydraulic effects of sea level rise (SLR) on the current system. For the flood risk analysis within<br/>KP-ZSS, the current strength...

Zijlstra, Wouter (author)
The Dutch Rhine-Meuse delta is expected to require many dike reinforcements on a short and long term, due to (accelerated) sea level rise. Average damage in unembanked areas will increase too, and a costly replacement of the Maeslantkering is expected after 2070. Delta21 is a project that aims to address these challenges related to flood...

This thesis investigates the performance of the invariant extended Kalman filter (IEKF) compared to the multiplicative extended Kalman filter (MEKF) in the context of nonlinear state estimation on matrix Lie groups. The IEKF, a relatively recent variant of the EKF, is particularly suitable for systems with group-affine process models and...

Climate change and its impacts have necessitated a shift from relying solely on mitigation measures to implementing effective adaptation strategies. The financial requirements for adaptation, particularly in developing countries, have increased substantially. The annual projected needs for adaptation have nearly quadrupled over the past decade...

Indoor positioning systems cannot rely on conventional localization methods, such as GPS, to locate devices because of interference with the structure of buildings. One solution is to use magnetic positioning, which is based on spatial variations in the patterns of the ambient magnetic field. To model magnetic fields, Gaussian process regression...

Indoor localisation is a growing field of interest in recent studies. While GPS (global positioning system) is a standard for outdoor localisation, no such solution exists for indoor applications. The literature provides several methods to obtain the location of indoor systems, often using optical sensors. A small number of recent studies use...

In mid-July 2021, heavy precipitation caused flooding for multiple tributaries of the Meuse and Rhine rivers which resulted in many deaths and exceptional damage. The Ahr in Germany, the Vesdre in Belgium and the Geul in the Netherlands suffered the greatest damage in each country. The first step in reducing such high damage from international,...

Underwater position estimation is challenging due to the absence of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals. Underwater vehicles are typically equipped with a Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) that measures the velocity relative to the seafloor. Aside from the velocity, the DVL also measures the range of each of the four beams. When compared...

In the summer of 2021 severe flooding occurred in Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands. High damages have been estimated in the Geul catchment, leading up to 250 million euro. Flood risk management in The Netherlands is mostly focussed on reducing the probability of flooding and in lesser extent on damage mitigation. Especially in areas such as...
