Foundations of buildings ensure the safety and serviceability are upheld. A common type of<br/>foundations used in the Netherlands is pile foundations which are typically founded on a thick sand layer in the subsurface. These pile foundations are the focus of this thesis and more specifically the methods used to design such foundations. This...

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...

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...

Cable bacteria can reach high densities in coastal sediments, and as a result of their unusual electrogenic lifestyle and intense metabolic activity, exert a major and distinct impact on biogeochemical cycling, both locally in sediments and at the ecosystem level. This appears to be particularly true for seasonally hypoxic systems, but the...

Cable bacteria embed a network of conductive protein fibers in their cell envelope that efficiently guides electron transport over distances spanning up to several centimeters. This form of long-distance electron transport is unique in biology and is mediated by a metalloprotein with a sulfur-coordinated nickel (Ni) cofactor. However, the...

Cable bacteria are filamentous, multicellular microorganisms that display an exceptional form of biological electron transport across centimeter-scale distances. Currents are guided through a network of nickel-containing protein fibers within the cell envelope. Still, the mechanism of long-range conduction remains unresolved. Here, we...

Air transportation is a mode of transport developed specifically to provide access to long-distance destinations that may otherwise be infeasible or at least more difficult to reach. Accordingly, there are distinct aspects of air travel that require consideration when assessing accessibility by air transportation, which are not addressed in...

Cloud-to-cloud (C2C) distance calculations are frequently performed as an initial stage in change detection and spatiotemporal analysis with point clouds. There are various methods for calculating C2C distance, also called inter-point distance, which refers to the distance between two corresponding point clouds captured at different epochs....

High-power white light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have demonstrated superior efficiency and reliability compared to traditional white light sources. However, ensuring maximum performance for a prolonged lifetime use presents a significant challenge for manufacturers and end users, especially in safety–critical applications. Thus, identifying...

We investigate the application of the distance-based global sensitivity analysis (DGSA) to evaluate the sensitivity of electrical model parameters obtained from transient electromagnetic (TEM) data including induced polarization (IP) effects. We propose novel open-source forward modeling and inversion routines for single-loop TEM data...

The maximum parsimony distance d<sub>MP</sub>(T<sub>1</sub>,T<sub>2</sub>) and the bounded-state maximum parsimony distance d<sub>MP</sub><sup>t</sup>(T<sub>1</sub>,T<sub>2</sub>) measure the difference between two phylogenetic trees T<sub>1</sub>,T<sub>2</sub> in terms of the maximum difference between their parsimony scores for any...

Recent literature in real-time trajectory planning has proposed using Control Barrier Functions (CBFs) as collision constraints in Model Predictive Control (MPC) for efficient guidance, a concept referred to as MPC-CBF. This concept has been explored for both first and second-order CBFs. However, these approaches relied on an analytical...

High-speed rail (HSR) is gaining increasing attention due to its sustainability and transport capacity, aligning with ambitious European transport goals for 2030 and 2050. Despite its potential, the creation of a unified European HSR network faces challenges rooted in poor coordination and national interests. This study addresses the absence of...

In phylogenetics, it is important to figure out what method to obtain a phylogenetic tree, a tree showing how species evolve from one another, is more reliable. A phylogenetic tree is a mathematical tree, where every internal vertex has at least 2 children, and the leaves are labeled bijectively with a set $X$. One useful tool to help determine...

The paper examines the relationship between the public transport network and urban diversity in Amsterdam using urban mapping and data analysis. The paper presents a hierarchical analysis of the urban diversity outcome, which is based on the computation of the average diversity scores for each geographical area. The Simpson index is used to...

The transport of viruses in groundwater is a complex process controlled by both hydrodynamic and reaction parameters. Characterizing the transport of viruses in groundwater is of crucial importance for investigating health risks associated with groundwater consumption from private individual or residential pumping wells. Setback distances...

High-speed rail (HSR) is frequently seen as a promising alternative for long-distance travel by air and road, given its environmental advantages whilst offering a competitive level of service. However, a European HSR-network is yet to be realised, with the current state amounting to a patchwork of poorly connected subnetworks. Consequently,...

The present work used the electrical resistivity approach to conduct a three-dimensional modeling and initial volume estimation of the limestone layer in the Mintom region located in southern Cameroon. In order to achieve the objectives of the study, a total of 21 electrical soundings spaced 250 m were first collected in the field using the...

Introduction: Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) can provide the tools to safely master minimally invasive surgery (MIS) skills in patient-free environments and receive immediate objective feedback without the constant presence of an instructor. However, TEL-based systems tend to work isolated from one another, focus on different skills, and...

The analysis of networks describing many social, economic, technological, biological and other systems has attracted a lot of attention last decades. Since most of these complex systems evolve over time, there is a need to investigate the changes, which appear in the system, in order to assess the sustainability of the network and to identify...
