Seismic design codes are currently moving from a force-based design approach to a performance-based design approach. For example, in a performance-based design approach it could be specified how many lanes must be available during the lifetime of a bridge...

In seismically active areas, liquefaction hazards have always been a complicated aspect to evaluate as part of the seismic design of a project. In the case of the design of critical facilities, this becomes crucial, as beyond design basis conditions may elevate the seismic loads significantly and create a considerable liquefaction risk in areas...

Automotive radar has an advantage over other sensors in that it is better at operating in bad weather conditions. To see the extent of the effect that adverse weather conditions might have on the statistics of the data a statistical analysis was performed on real measurement data. During heavy rain there is a shift that can be observed in the...

In highly dynamic and vulnerable tidal systems such as the Wadden Sea, the importance of understanding natural processes and how they are hampered by anthropogenic pressure is highly demanding. Within these processes the sediment transport is one of the most challenging movements to be monitored. With this in mind, suspended particulate matter ...

This project aims to improve the accuracy of the eye tracking system, which consists of two cameras and two infrared LED light sources. This highly non-invasive technology, which is the feature-based video-oculographic eye tracking system, determines the position of the eye by monitoring the eye features such as the pupil center and glints. The...

The Dutch governmental organisation Rijkswaterstaat contributes to the smooth and safe flow of traffic, as both traffic jams and accidents cost society large amounts of money each day. Roads are designed for the current traffic composition. Due to the promotion of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) systems, utilisation of these systems is expected to...

This thesis proposes an approach for tackling the problem of data-shortage in hydrological modelling. A hydrological model, in the context of this thesis, translates meteorological data to stream-flow of a river, for a specific catchment. A model incorporates parameters that describe the dynamics of a chosen model, in this case a FLEX (Flux...

The yield curve represents market supply and demand implied expectations of future interest rates and is calibrated from the most liquidly traded interest rate derivatives like cash deposits, forward rate agreeents, swaps and futures. Due to the daily margining mechanism of futures contracts, interest rate futures require the substraction of a...

Recent advancements in Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) radar techniques has created a paradigm shift in the overall radar technology to increase degrees of freedom in multi-function radar capabilities. The underlying principle of MIMO transmissions is to transmit independent waveforms from each antenna-element which do not interfere with...

Previous work [1] has demonstrated the possibility of high resolution imaging through the use of a single element and a aberration mask. This thesis will expand on the previous work by examining the proposed method for errors in the creation of the model. The analysis is preformed by examining the various aspects of the measurements setup and...

At this moment, industrial robot arms are increasingly used to automate manufacturing processes in the aerospace industry. However, these robot arms lack position accuracy to effectively mill parts or assemble products. In this work, this gap is investigated following two approaches; on one hand existing calibration methods of robot arms are...

To cut down immense greenhouse gases emission and energy consumption in the rapidly urbanizing world, a holistic understanding and rethinking of our dynamic urban energy system are inevitable. Performing bottom-up building energy modelings at urban scale based on Geographic Information System (GIS) and semantic 3D city models could be a...

Three interest rate models are researched: Displaced Exponential-Vasicek, Hull-White one factor and Hull-White two factors with time-dependent volatility parameters. The motivation for this is two-fold: firstly, we would like to understand how the capital calculations would be impacted when yield curves are modelled under the three different...

Calibration of groundwater models can be done manually by comparing the measured and computed groundwater heads or automatically using algorithms which do the work for you. Modules for this purpose are included in or linked externally to traditional groundwater modelling software and used. One such module PEST (Parameter ESTimation) uses the...

Tall buildings lose a big part of their expensive space to elevator shafts. A ropeless elevator reduces the amount of shafts, because multiple cabins are able to move in the same shaft. Currently an elevator using a row of linear motors along the shaft is in the end phase of development. Tests on a full scale prototype 5 have proven the concept....

Pressure ulcers develop when skin is subjected to a mechanical load over time, resulting in tissue damage. Within a wide range of patients, pressure ulcers occur, often accompanied by severe pain.<br/>This is resulting in a prolonged hospital stay. The company Momo Medical is developing a sensor plate<br/>with the goal of preventing pressure...

Since both the aircraft and wind energy sectors are experiencing rapid growth, improvements must be made in terms of noise reduction as to enable growth whilst fulfilling the restrictions on noise pollution. An open-section vertical wind tunnel with an anechoic test chamber has recently been constructed at the Delft University of Technology, in...

CONTEXT. Spectropolarimetry is proposed as a relatively new option in the field of remote sensing for the characterization of aerosol particles and the investigation of cloud properties, that are key factors for the enhancement of climate model's accuracy. The use of multi-wavelength, multi-angle information of the scattered flux and...

This research investigates the question how the choice of scenarios and metrics influences the calibration of pedestrian simulation models. By calibrating a pedestrian model using different combinations of scenarios and metrics and comparing the results it was concluded that it matters what scenarios and metrics are included during the...
