Re-refined Engine Oil Bottoms (REOB) are a waste product from the re-refining process of waste engine oil. There is a large incentive in the world to produce recycled engine oil and the production of REOB in this process is increasing. On the other hand refineries are going through transitions due to economic and regulatory reasons (i.e. IMO...

This master's thesis addresses a critical gap in the field of road construction by focusing on the limitations of Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene modified bitumen (SBS-MB), a widely-used binder. While SBS-MB offers superior performance, its long-term efficacy is compromised due to various aging processes. Existing rejuvenators are insufficient for...

The widespread use of traditional bitumen, derived from finite crude oil resources, has led to growing concerns over its environmental impact, long-term availability, and cost. These challenges underscore the urgent need for sustainable, alternative binders in infrastructure applications such as road construction. Although previous research has...

The Netherlands has one of the densest road networks with over 140,000 km of roadways. Fatigue cracking is an important distress in flexible pavements. This form of distress results from the application of repeated traffic loading which causes failure. Fatigue cracking assessment on various base layer asphalt mixtures including reclaimed asphalt...

Timetables determine the service quality for passengers and the energy consumption of trains in metro systems. In metro networks, a timetable can be made by optimizing train departure frequencies for different periods of the day. Typically, the optimization problem that arises from optimizing train departure frequencies in metro networks...

The concept of circular economy has gained popularity as an affordable and viable solution to housing problems, providing a cyclical alternative flow model that reuses materials. Despite the Netherlands being one of the first countries to move towards circular housing, implementation issues and a lack of motivation from some stakeholders remain....

SBS modified bitumen is popularly utilized in road construction owing to its outstanding performance and competitive pricing. However, like normal bitumen, SBS modified bitumen will also be aged and causing asphalt pavement distress and the need for maintenance, resulting in a significant amount of wasted modified asphalt. Recycling waste...

Railway networks are subjected to disruptions on a daily basis, which may make the timetable unimplementable, which in its turn may significantly influence passenger satisfaction. In practice, train dispatchers are responsible for mitigating the influence of disruptions, such as delays of trains, train cancellations, and overcrowdedness at...

Instance segmentation on data from Dynamic Vision Sensors (DVS) is an important computer vision task that needs to be tackled in order to push the research forward on these types of inputs. This paper aims to show that deep learning based techniques can be used to solve the task of instance segmentation on DVS data. A high performing model was...

Event-based cameras represent a new alternative to traditional frame based sensors, with advantages in lower output bandwidth, lower latency and higher dynamic range, thanks to their independent, asynchronous pixels. These advantages prompted the development of computer vision methods on event data in the last decade, however event-based...

The event-based camera represents a revolutionary concept, having an asynchronous output. The pixels of dynamic vision sensors react to the brightness change, resulting in streams of events at very small intervals of time. This paper provides a model to track objects in neuromorphic datasets, using clustering. In addition, a non-linear filter is...

Event-based cameras do not capture frames like an RGB camera, only data from pixels that detect a change in light intensity, making it a better alternative for processing videos. The sparse data acquired from event-based video only captures movement in an asynchronous way. In this paper an evaluation is made on the efficiency and accuracy of...

The European construction sector is responsible for the consumption of almost 32% of total raw material for realizing its projects (Benachio, Freitas, & Tavares , 2020). On a national level, this amount results to almost 50% for the Dutch construction industry (Nellssen, et al., 2018). The ever-growing population stresses the need for...

The phrase Triple Bottom Line (TBL) was first coined in 1994 in order to introduce social and environmental considerations in the traditional finance-centric measurement system of business performance. As a tool to measure sustainability performance, the three bottom lines refer to the environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainability...

The high speed rail line in the Netherlands, constructed since 2002, is built to create a fast travel connection from Amsterdam to Rotterdam and the Belgium border. The track is designed for trains with a maximum operating train speed of 300 km/h. A great part of the structure is founded on typical Dutch soft soils consisting of Holocene clay...

The use of synthetic fibres has been reported to enhance the performance of asphalt pavement materials in terms of permanent deformation, fatigue and thermal cracking. However, limited results about the benefits of synthetic fibres in the reinforced warm-mix asphaltic materials, and the exact mechanism of reinforcing the binding part in pavement...

The increasing traffic load has led to the use of polymer modifiers in bituminous mixes in order to improve the performance and the durability of the pavement structures. Epoxy is a thermoset material which ensures enhanced fatigue performance and improved mechanical characteristics when used to modify bituminous materials. However, unlike...

The mechanical behaviour of granular materials under high plastic deformation is quite complex due to the fact that the granular assembly consists of discrete or discontinuous non-uniform particles. Each of the particles has its own mechanical behaviour, its micro-properties thus the soil mass behaviour is complex and in some cases the classical...
