Introduction: A thigh push-off is often used as a compensation strategy for standing up by elderly people. However, the biomechanics of this movement are not known. In this thesis the standing-up movement with the use of the thigh push-off strategy (TP), the armrest push-off strategy (AR) and the no arm aid strategy (NA) was analysed. The aim...

In recent years, the amount of traffic on the highways has increased continuously and in particular freight traffic. Despite solutions to maximize roadway capacity, the drop of capacity after congestions sets in, remains an active field of study. The influence of freight traffic on traffic flow has received little attention, especially regarding...

Stand capacity assessment is an essential factor in airport planning and design due to the large investments associated with airport development. Fulfilling anticipated demand while still considering future growth is key in airport master planning. In this paper, a mixed-integer linear programming optimisation model is proposed, which determines...

The runway usage of complex airports with multiple runways is currently prescribed by a preference list. The preference list mostly focuses on minimizing noise and it provides a more manageable flow for ATC. However, it does not consider the fuel burn or current demand of flights. This study presents a MILP scheduling model which optimizes for...

In the last decade many development projects focused on agricultural development, wherein smallholder farmers are challenged to change their traditional practices and make use of new technologies and techniques. However, it is seen that smallholder farmers are not able or willing to apply learned practices or increase production. One reason for...

As the demand for transport of goods and passengers increases, the capacity of railway networks is becoming more and more saturated. Railway infrastructure managers aim to increase the rail network capacity with the minimum possible investments in infrastructure. Next generation signalling concepts such as Moving Block (MB) and Virtual Coupling ...

In Ethiopia, rainfall variability and changes in rainfall patterns, induced by climate change, could increase the frequency and occurrence of floods and droughts. Due to smallholder farmers in the Gumera sub-basin, Ethiopia, mostly relying on rainfed agriculture, climatic changes highly influence the agricultural production with corresponding...

The Dutch railway system is subject to maintenance, which is carried out by a group of rail contractors who need parking space to park and prepare trains in between projects. The objective of this study is to minimise the total costs as a result of the distance travelled by maintenance trains and the preservation of the included parking...

The transition to renewable energy has lead to many new ways of energy production, such as wind and solar energy. For solar energy power, there is an excess of energy during summer and an deficiency of it during winter, which is reversed for the energy consumption. In order to amend this problem, there is an introduction of new ways of energy...

This research focuses on the impact of extreme low river discharges, meaning discharges below 1200 m2/s at Lobith. In 2018 extreme low river discharges in the river Rhine led to congestions in the main Dutch part, called the river Waal. The river Waal is an important river for inland navigation, but during low discharges the...

In this thesis an investigation is performed into the effect of different speed limits on freeway capacity. From literature, much is known about the variety of factors that affect capacity, but the exact effect of the speed limit on capacity is not yet clear. In recent years, several speed limits changes have taken place at multiple two-lane...

In this report the hydrological response to multiyear droughts has been researched. Long-term droughts have resulted in an increase in tree die-off in affected areas. As the hydrological response is related to the vegetation in a catchment, it is of interest to find out whether catchment response regarding rainfall-runoff is different after a...

Growing demand for railway-based transport stresses railway infrastructure on safety, punctuality, and robustness. The Port of Rotterdam and ProRail desire a process of executing simulation model supported capacity studies wherein inputs, methods and outputs are coordinated upfront. However, interorganisational capacity studies are currently...

Cloud datacenters provide a backbone to our digital society. Crucial to meeting increasing demand while maintaining efficient operation is the activity of capacity planning. Inaccurate capacity planning for cloud datacenters can lead to significant performance degradation, denser targets for failure, and unsustainable energy consumption....

This thesis investigates two types of classical capacities of both classical and quantum channels, giving rise to four different settings. The first type of classical capacity investigated is the ordinary capacity of a channel to transmit classical information with a probability of error which becomes arbitrarily small as the channel is used...

The root zone storage capacity is a critical determinant in hydrology, playing a major role in the partitioning of precipitation into evaporation and runoff. Besides, it is an important parameter in climatological and hydrological models. Understanding of the root zone storage capacity and its major determining processes is therefore fundamental...
