We perform an initial study on the working time of software developers in IT companies across China and the United States by investigating the timestamps of commit activities on GitHub. We identify three temporal patterns shown in commit activities among these companies. We find that Chinese companies are more likely to follow long working...

E-commerce is still a strong growing segment with fierce competition among parcel delivery service providers. To stay ahead of the competitors innovation is necessary. Currently, parcels are being delivered with large delivery vans which will usually deliver single parcels to doorsteps of their customers. This so called 'last mile delivery'...

In data assimilation problems, various types of data are naturally linked to different spatial resolutions (e.g., seismic and electromagnetic data), and these scales are usually not coincident to the subsurface simulation model scale. Alternatives like upscaling/downscaling of the data and/or the simulation model can be used, but with...

Whenever a region - especially the coastal area - is affected by flood risk, it is essential for residential and life protection to gain knowledge about the mechanisms leading to the collapse of houses. There are empirical mortality functions to predict the mortality of population in the Netherlands directly affected by flooding, but due to...

Accelerating the recovery of marine coastal ecosystems is a global challenge that has been attempted on many systems around the world. Restoration efforts have shown varying levels of success at localized-scales, but developing techniques for large-scale application are still in their nascent stage for many systems. For seagrass meadows and...

In this additional thesis a 2D urban flood model in the downtown area of Shanghai was investigated. Therefore a numerical model of Delft3D flexible mesh (DFM) was used. Since the model was investigated from scratch, a lot of data analysis and pre-processing was required to have reasonable input data. As input data a surface elevation map, a map...

The applicability of glass in structures is continuously ascending, as the transparency and high compressive strength of the material render it the optimum choice for realizing diaphanous structural components that allow for light transmittance and space continuity. The fabrication boundaries of the material are constantly stretching: visible...

We propose a novel adaptive, adjoint-based, iterative multiscale finite volume (i-MSFV) method. The method aims to reduce the computational cost of the smoothing stage of the original i-MSFV method by selectively choosing fine-scale sub-domains (or sub-set of primary variables) to solve for. The selection of fine-scale primary variables is...

This paper presents an experimental study on the development of material properties over time (up to around 2 years) and the structural behavior of reinforced beams, for two types of alkali-activated concrete (AAC). Compressive strength, flexural strength, tensile splitting strength, elastic modulus, and flexural behavior of reinforced beams...

Agriculture is of huge economic significance in The Netherlands where the provision of real-time, reliable information on crop development is essential to support the transition towards precision agriculture. Optical imagery can provide invaluable insights into crop growth and development but is severely hampered by cloud cover. This case study...

We study fast and robust iterative solvers for large systems of linear equations resulting from simulation of flow trough strongly heterogeneous porous media. We propose the use of preconditioning and deflation techniques, based on information obtained frfrom the system, to reduce the time spent in the solution of the linear system.An important...

In data assimilation problems, various types of data are naturally linked to different spatial resolutions (e.g. seismic and electromagnetic data), and these scales are usually not coincident to the subsurface simulation model scale. Alternatives like down/upscaling of the data and/or the simulation model can be used, but with potential loss of...

We explore and develop POD-based deflation methods to accelerate the solution of large-scale linear systems resulting from two-phase flow simulation. The techniques here presented collect information from the system in a POD basis, which is later used in a deflation scheme. The snapshots required to obtain the POD basis are captured in two ways:...

Accurate field-scale simulations of foam enhanced oil recovery are challenging, due to the sharp transition between gas and foam. Hence, unpredictable numerical and physical behavior is often observed, casting doubt on the validity of the simulation results. In this paper, a thorough stability analysis of the foam model is presented to validate...

Over the past decade, a steep increase in the number of seismic events has been observed in the Groningen gas field, the Netherlands. It is generally accepted that these are induced by compaction of the reservoir rock due to extensive depletion, causing a buildup of strain energy in faults that may be released seismically. We address the...

Since the early 2000's there has been a significant focus from many groups around the world towards the development and application of innovative technologies in order to improve reservoir management strategies and optimize field development plans. Benchmark studies are a very valuable way of evaluating and demonstrating the status and...

A generic framework for the computation of derivative information required for gradient-based optimization using sequentially coupled subsurface simulation models is presented. The proposed approach allows for the computation of any derivative information with no modification of the mathematical framework. It only requires the forward model...

An enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) pilot test has multiple goals, among them to demonstrate oil recovery, verify the properties of the EOR agent in-situ, and provide the information needed for scale-up to an economic process. Given the complexity of EOR processes and the inherent uncertainty in the reservoir description, it is a challenge to...
