Several incidents involving the installation of temporary traffic signs by road workers have raised concerns about the effectiveness of these signs. Even in the absence of incidents, effectiveness is a relevant question, made more urgent by the incidents and the high risk of collision faced by road workers installing the signs. This paper...

More and more (young) working adults in the Netherlands experience burnout-related stress symptoms. Although the focus of office environments is more focused on vitality, this trend keeps rising.<br/><br/>Products that already focus on awareness of well-being turn out to not be sustainable or even intrusive. Employees on the other hand seem to...

Bio-mediated methods, such as microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) and enzyme induced carbonate precipitation (EICP), have gained considerable attention as alternatives to invasive ground improvement techniques. MICP and EICP use biogeochemical processes to drive carbonate precipitation and bind soil grains, thereby improving the...

The implementation of the Coercion and Care Act or “Wet Zorg en Dwang” (WZD) in the Netherlands in 2020 has sparked a discussion about the free movement of people with Alzheimer’s. Although the law prohibits enclosed living spaces for these people, wandering behaviour remains a challenge in care environments. This causes disruptions and burdens...

This thesis focuses on the structural behaviour of prestressed concrete girder beams with a particular emphasis on stiffness degradation near intermediate supports due to cracking, in inverted-T girders. Despite advancements in bridge engineering, there is still a lack of understanding regarding crack development along the length of the beam and...

Overconsumption plays a big part in the current environmental crisis, making a shift towards sufficient consumption imperative. Since overconsumption is often a habit, triggering a stop and re-think process in the consumers' minds may be the way for reduction. Societal norms, proven effective for behaviour change, could disrupt consumption...

The rediscovered interest in space exploration has led to plans to establish outposts on the Moon and beyond. The lunar bases currently planned are to be manned incrementally, with robots performing most work. With new trends in robotics, the use of collaborating swarms has become more abundant. To support lunar operation, a distinct area within...

Tourists travelling by airplane contribute significantly to the CO2 emissions. The number of flights covering longer distances is rising and, consequently, implies more energy consumption. This leads to a greater environmental impact compared to flights covering shorter distances. Although people are expected to continue travelling, adjusting...

Cycling as a mode of transport is getting increasingly more attention from academics and governments around the world. It improves the physical and mental well being of citizens, it is efficient in terms of space and it provides economic benefits. However, traffic engineers and urban planners of these cities currently lack the means to...

As one of the largest innovation hubs in the world, the Brainport Eindhoven region experiences significant economic and population growth. However, with this success comes a challenge: the transportation infrastructure is increasingly strained, with new housing developments and population growth escalating the transport demand. The economic...

Autonomy in traffic (e.g., autonomous vehicles) could potentially benefit mobility, safety, accessibility and sustainability. However, the realisation of these advancements is highly dependent on how effective these autonomous vehicles interact with vulnerable road users such as pedestrians. Before we can understand how pedestrians will interact...

The Netherlands is currently facing a housing crisis characterised by both quantitative and qualitative mismatches in the market. The issues range from a housing shortage to the unequal distribution of suitable dwellings. One of the reasons for this housing crisis is the prolonged residence of young elderly in unsuitable dwellings, as policy...

Value preservation is key for the transition from a linear economy to a sufficiency-based circular economy. However, to keep the value of products and materials at the highest level possible over time, different actors such as businesses, designers, consumers, and policymakers must know when value is reduced during a product's lifetime, and how...

Scour leads to the loss of soil around monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines, which affects their structural safety. In this paper, the effect of scour on the lateral behaviour of monopiles was extensively investigated using finite element analysis, and calibration and comparison were undertaken using centrifuge tests. Piles with three...

Physical distancing has been an important asset in limiting the SARS-CoV-2 virus spread during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study aims to assess compliance with physical distancing and to evaluate the combination of observed and self-reported data used. This research shows that it is difficult to operationalize new rules, that context affects...

The impregnation of the exterior surface of a masonry wall with a water repellent is a common intervention in (historic) building renovation and maintenance. Such treatments, whilst degrading at the surface with time under influence of ultra violet light, remain effective below the surface several decades after their application. During...

In this work we present the pulsed current (PC) electrodeposition of Sn-Cu-Ni alloy as lead-free solder candidate, from choline chloride – ethylene glycol eutectic mixtures (1:2 molar ratio) onto copper metallic substrates. Electrolytes containing Sn<sup>2+</sup>, Cu<sup>2+</sup> and Ni<sup>2+</sup> salts in the selected deep eutectic solvent...

Longitudinal travel surveys are needed to capture individual travel behaviour changes. Only two longitudinal tavel surveys of national relevance are currently in operation, the German Mobility Panel (MOP) since 1994 and the Netherlands Mobility Panel (MPN) since 2013. This paper provides an overview of both panels' differences and...

Application-specific reasoning mechanisms (ASRMs) development is a rapidly growing domain of systems engineering. A demonstrative implementation of an active recommender system (ARS) was realized to support designing ASRMs and to circumvent procedural obstacles by providing context-sensitive recommendations. The specific problem for the...
