To optimize steel halls for this thesis, an optimization tool is created. This tool creates a parametric model and optimizes this model to its costs. The connections in the tool are limited to beam-column connections. <br/>The optimization starts with the input variables of the model, the most important input variable is the type of the beam...

Interacting with cyclists is a difficult challenge for Automated Vehicles (AVs). It is important that the introduction of AVs does not lead to a decrease in cyclist safety. This study presents a new methodology that is developed to assess road safety between AVs and cyclists. Surrogate Measures of Safety are identified specifically for the...

The aerospace industry increasingly uses fibre-reinforced plastics that are manufactured using automated fibre placement (AFP). A common problem in AFP is the occurrence of gaps and overlaps that affect the structural perfromance of laminates. Tow width fluctuation is an important cause of gaps and overlaps. Two developments in manufacturing are...

Much of the Dutch infrastructure was built in the 1960s and 1970s and includes an estimated 55.000 bridges and viaducts. These aging structures have reached the end of their designed service life or will reach it in the short term. It is estimated that 15% of these structures have a box-shaped cross-section as being reinforced concrete...

Automated vehicles (AVs) are on the horizon, and they are expected to deliver traffic safety and efficiency benefits to transportation systems. There are different automation levels for AVs based on the functionalities of the automation systems and their operating design domain (i.e., on which conditions these functionalities can be realized)....

Cryogenic electron tomography (cryo-ET) is currently the golden standard for imaging cellular tissue at nanometer resolution. The current workflow from cultured cells to final image is however very time-consuming, labor-intensive, expensive, and has a low yield. Moreover, many of the steps in this workflow require practice. Even after practice,...

Most of cyclists’ fatalities originate from collisions with motorized vehicles. It is expected that automated vehicles (AV) will be safer than human-driven vehicles, but this depends on the nature of interactions between non-automated road users, among them cyclists. Little research on the interactions between cyclists and AVs exists. This...

In the aerospace industry, the Automated Fiber Placement process is an established method for producing composite parts. Nowadays the required visual inspection, subsequent to this process, typically takes up to 50% of the total manufacturing time and the inspection quality strongly depends on the inspector. A Deep Learning based...

Future automated vehicles may be equipped with external Human-Machine Interfaces (eHMIs). Currently, little is known about the effect of the perspective of the eHMI message on crossing decisions of pedestrians. We performed an experiment to examine the effects of images depicting eHMI messages of different perspectives (egocentric from the...

Automated vehicles (AVs) are expected to improve traffic flow efficiency and safety. The deployment of AVs on motorways is expected to be the first step in their implementation. One of the main concerns is how human drivers will interact with AVs. Dedicating specific lanes to AVs have been suggested as a possible solution. However, there is...

In 1886, humanity started a great effort to move away from horseback and build a carriage over which they have full control. A century-and-a-half later, we have succeeded to the degree that we are looking for a way to relax in our automobiles. The MEDIATOR project tackles the transitional period between conventional automobiles and fully...

Automated vehicles (AV) are expected to change our future way of transportation and bring many positive effects, such as better road/vehicle safety, reduced environmental costs but also increased on-board productivity. The commonly adopted approach to capture the effect of increased on-board productivity is to reduce the ‘penalty’ associated...

Advancements in technology are bringing Automated vehicles (AVs) closer to reality and it is not so far in future when these vehicles will have a significant penetration rate in our existing transport network. However, in the early phases of automation, penetration rate of these vehicles will be very low. This would lead to a mixed traffic...
