The risk of flood risk is increasing with global trends such as rising sea levels, land subsidence, increasing populations in coastal areas and economic growth. Traditional solutions to reduce flood risk are a levee or a dam; however, the research on hydraulic engineering is increasingly promoting nature-based solutions for flood protection....

A lowcost multipollutant sensor box is developed, calibrated and deployed to quantify aviationattributable air quality impacts at Amsterdam Schiphol airport. The sensor box contains four lowcost electrochemical gas sensors that respond to CO, NO, NO2 and O3 concentrations in ambient air. Additional sensors in the sensor box allow the...

There are two main challenges in the construction industry: carbon emissions and densification in cities. Timber high-rise might prove as a suitable solution to both these challenges. However, there is a lack of implementation of timber high-rise. This research argues that a lack of thorough analysis of timber design alternatives in the...

This research aims to determine the cost effectiveness of yacht emission reducing ret options through marginal abatement cost curves. A broad selection of five refit options is evaluated and implemented in the created tool. Using multiple scenarios by fluctuating fuel price and the implementation of hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), the effect...

This research aims to identify the underlying mechanisms of the cost of rework related to constructability in Dutch marine infrastructure projects. Despite extensive previous research on the cost of rework, and constructability, the underlying mechanisms within executed projects in the Netherlands have not yet been observed from research....

The Sines H2 Hub aims to take advantage of Portugal’s solar resources and push for a green hydrogen hub centred in Sines. To do so, a 1GW electrolyser is expected to be built by 2030. The gas produced, which will have the same production profile as the solar irradiance, can be injected in the gas grid, distributed by truck or shipped to the...

To reduce the flood risk in areas prone to flooding, possible adaptation measures must be investigated. In this thesis a Python-based framework has been developed that can screen flood adaptation measures as an alternative to the existing analytical method of Royal HaskoningDHV. The framework is limited to the costs and effects on the economic...

The music information retrieval community has long recognized the need for better evaluation. Frameworks as comprehensive as in the field of text retrieval are missing. An important problem of evaluation for music retrieval is the high cost. This work continues on the proposed low-cost evaluation model. The low-cost model allows for cheap...

This research focused on the techno-economic implementation of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF). Carbon reduction in commercial aviation could be done via four key levers; technological efficiency improvement (aircraft or engine replacement), operational efficiency improvement (air traffic management or airline operations), the implementation of...

Various neuromuscular disorders such as spinal cord injury, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and poliomyelitis lead to calf muscle weakness, which limits the patient's ability to propel their body forward during gait. Their abnormal gait pattern is characterized by increased ankle dorsiflexion, excessive knee flexion during stance and reduced ankle...

Bouwteam is a Dutch project delivery method that involves the contractor and the client in a collaborative way in a construction project's design process. With this early involvement of the contractor, this project delivery method contains two agreements during the project. The first agreement is for the contractor's involvement in the design...

Current day routing systems use predicted travel times to calculate optimal routes. Some routing algorithms even use predicted traffic lights states to optimize these routes and to improve the expected travel time. But all these methods optimize the expected travel time and do not take reliability into account. Reliability is a major service...

The main motivation for this research originated from two ambitions, which involve many challenges for which circular solutions have to be developed. First, the ambition of the Dutch government to achieve a circular economy, which also includes a circular construction industry, in the Netherlands by 2050 at the latest. Secondly, in line with the...

The manufacturing processes of the Dutch ceramic plants are energy intensive with high temperatures. Most heat is generated by firing natural gas, which causes CO2 emissions. According to the Dutch Climate Agreement, the ceramic plants need to abate their CO2 emissions by 2030. This study intends to provide an analysis of applicable...

To support Van Oord’s path towards a low-emission future fleet, this thesis has focused on the technical, environmental and economic impact of a methanol hybrid power plant design for new-build offshore working vessels (OWVs). These Dynamic-Positioning (DP) vessels are known for their large and dynamic power plants and have to limit their NOx...

Optimizing supply chain management in hospitals can lead to a significant reduction in costs. One of the supply chain processes that can be optimized is the sterilization of reusable instruments used during surgical procedures. This process takes place at the Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) and consists of two main steps, `washing and...

After the Dutch government committed itself to the Paris Climate Agreement, there has been some development in policies that are introduced to limit the emissions of greenhouse gasses. These policies are introduced in the Dutch Climate Agreement. Some of these policies aim to stimulate the adoption rate of the battery electric vehicle into the...

Humans have made a significant impact on the world. The built environment, agriculture, transportation, consumption, they all have their share in this impact. This research aims to find viable alternatives for carbon capture and utilization for small biomass plants that go beyond supplying CO2 to greenhouses. The research shows that carbon...

This research focuses on identifying and evaluating ways to improve the sustainability of solid waste management (SWM) in semi-public spaces using the Efteling theme park as a case study. To the best of the author’s knowledge, this study is the first to apply an integrated waste management approach to optimize SWM in this context. The approach...
