Vrijhoef, R. (author)
The building industry is a fragmented and project-driven industry with specific characteristics, which can sometimes result in negative effects. Reference has often been made to other industries, particularly manufacturing, that would function more effectively and efficiently. Major differences between both include the organisation and...

The potential of light in diagnosis and therapy has been long recognised. With the advent of scientific progress in our understanding of light propagation and interaction with tissue and parallel major technological advances in how optical energy can be generated, detected and processed, this potential is being realised. Linking with this trend,...

Within information societies, information availability is a key issue affecting societyâs well being. The infrastructure underlying the foundation of the information society may be referred to as the information infrastructure. A geographic information infrastructure (GII) supports the information infrastructure with regard to geographic...

Although concrete is the most utilised building material nowdays, this material has a large shortcoming: it has a good resistance against compressive stresses, but a very low resistance against tensile stresses. Usual way to solve this problem is the application of steel reinforcement in concrete structures. Other possibility is the application...

Modern river management has to reconcile a number of functions, such as protection against floods and provision of safe and efficient navigation, floodplain agriculture, ecology and recreation. Knowledge on uncertainty in fluvial processes is important to make this possible, to design effective river engineering works, for operational...

The influence of specimen size on measured material properties in solid heterogeneous materials, such as concrete and rock, has been an issue of research and discussions for a few decades. A thorough understanding of the size effect phenomenon and the physical processes involved is imperative. An appreciable amount of experimental data on size...

Soft soil is often described as an anisotropic heterogeneous material. Standard soil investigation mainly involves vertically retrieved samples. Information on the parameters working in the horizontal direction remains scarce. Principally each soil property like permeability, stiffness or strength might show anisotropic behaviour. This thesis...

What can the political-administrative management of a government ministry do in order to bring about a substantial policy change? Public policy is shaped in networks that are characterized by pluriformity of actors, interests, perceptions, and resources, and by mutual instead of unilateral dependence among the actors. Uncertainty is high and...

The research presented in this thesis deals with gradient-enhanced approximate design optimization. This research has been carried out as part of the ADOPT project (Approximate Design OPTimization), a joint STW project with the Eindhoven University of Technology. In structural optimization, sensitivity analysis is often performed by means of the...

With the global eradication of poliomyelitis approaching, global and national policy makers need to develop policies for the post-eradication era. While the disappearance of the naturally circulating wild poliovirus will substantially decrease the risk of poliomyelitis disease, risks of reintroduction of the virus through circulation of vaccine...

Floods along lowland rivers still cause a lot of damage and casualties although centuries of experience with flood risk management have passed. In order to reduce flood impacts and to prevent flood waves from causing disasters, the current and alternative flood risk management strategies need to be reconsidered. As a potential solution the Dutch...

Since long data storage and data communication lack a common standard universal data model as well as a common data language for the application domains of database users. This hampers data communication between systems and causes costly data conversion processes. Various solutions have been proposed. However, those solutions either have a...
