The last decade saw the rise of e-commerce trade and the shift of the manufacturing industry to the emerging economies, China first of all. In this context, the European Customs Authorities experienced an explosion of small parcels coming from e-commerce websites, often from China, and faced difficulties to detect fiscal frauds and security...

The models with different fidelities for the siloed application of niche wind farm disciplines - rotor aerodynamics, aeroelasticity or wake aerodynamics - are prevalent in literature. These models are often used sequentially while designing a wind farm that may lead to a sub-optimal design due to their agnosticism towards the inter-disciplinary...

Currently, the only effective treatment for end-stage liver diseases is liver transplantation. However, the waiting list with patients who are in need of a new liver is long, because too few good-quality donor livers are available. New techniques in the field of tissue engineering are being investigated to create a reconstructed liver, which...

Virtual Reality (VR) is a hot topic; some argue that VR causes a computing revolution as impactful as the smartphone. The infrastructure industry recently adopted VR as a tool in the stakeholder process. This thesis defines Virtual Reality as a three-dimensional virtual environment in which one can interact. VR is applied in several projects...

Seaports are important maritime commercial facilities and key hubs for national and global trades. There is a growing need for seaborne transport and, hence, seaport facilities, especially in emerging economies due to economic and population growth, such as in Africa. In sedimentary environments, port construction may induce coastal impacts...

The increasing transistor density of Integrated Circuits (ICs) ever since their introduction, has scaled the computational performance of microprocessors. As a consequence of the gain in transistor density, the power dissipation density has also increased to a degree that has become a limiting factor in further performance scaling. The prevalent...

A first step in designing aircraft with optimal sound is the development of a module that is able to assess noise in a sophisticated way, which is the exact goal of this research. In this research the Audio Assessment Module (AAM) is completed with the addition of tonality, roughness and fluctuation strength. The AAM is now able to assess sound...

The rapid growth of the PV industry has meant that prices have been falling steeply, making them more accessible for a wider range of applications. The combined use of noise barriers as energy generating facilities, usually coined as PVNBs has been occurring since the late 80’s. It has not realised wide spread implementation, remaining mostly in...

With the arrival of the Eurocode, the calculations regarding shear resistance, have become increasingly conservative compared to former concrete standards. For example in Voorschriften Beton 1974 (VB 74), a former concrete standard, a shear resistance combination of concrete, stirrups and prestress was allowed. Whereas the Eurocode assumes the...

This report explains the design choices, implementation and results of a software engineering project commissioned by MakeTek. The team was tasked with making a system that could solve bike delivery scheduling problems with limited bike carrying capacity, time windows, dynamic delivery additions, movable pickup points and delivery time estimates...

Grading can be a very time-consuming activity for teachers. For this reason, numerous tools exist to aid teachers in grading. One of these tools is Zesje, a web application that allows electronic grading of paper-based exams. A major drawback of Zesje was that teachers were required to create their exams with LaTeX, a popular document...

Background: Anthocyanins are polyphenolic pigments which provide pink to blue colours in fruits and flowers. There is an increasing demand for anthocyanins, as food colorants and as health-promoting substances. Plant production of anthocyanins is often seasonal and cannot always meet demand due to low productivity and the complexity of the...

A possible consequence of the contemporary re-evaluation of Dutch flood and water management strategies could be a return to more naturalistic estuarine conditions within the Southwest Delta. This has the potential to re-animate natural systems and habitats as well as bolster cultural connections to, and across, this landscape.

But how...

‘Marineterrein’ is located on Kattenburg in Amsterdam. The Navy settle at Kattenburg for a long time until they came to the conclusion to relocate to the north of the Netherlands, and will leave at the end of 2018. The redesign of the Marineterrein is in hands of ‘Rijksvastgoedbedrijf’ and the municipality of Amsterdam. Therefore many companies...

The Project is located in Leiden University’s Humanities Campus (Leiden, Netherlands). Specifically, this project is about intervening on two Structuralist buildings, PN van Eyckhof and Matthias de Vrieshof designed by Joop van Stigt in 1982; the brief calls for their regeneration and adaptation in today’s society, while focusing on one of the...

The aim of this thesis project is to address a highly problematic landscape in an alternative conceptual way. Instead of following a problem-solving approach, I will try to see how the way a specific site works in space and time can be related to a number of concepts. Furthermore, how do these concepts become part of wider, both theoretical and...

Code review has been proved to be an extremely important practice to ensure softwarequality. In recent years, the trend has moved towards modern code review, a lightweight and less strict paradigm. Despite its many advantages, this approach still has room for further improvement, especially in the area of cognitive support for reviewers.

This paper presents a Pareto-based maintenance decision system for rail welds in a regional railway network. Weld health condition data are collected using a train in operation. A Hilbert spectrum-based approach is used for data processing to detect and assess the weld quality based on multiple registered dynamic responses in the axle box...

Relative sea level rise and climate change represent long-term threats for the ecosystems and flood defence system in the Wadden Sea. Moreover, the flood-dominant tidal basins in the area lead to sedimentation in the navigational channels used by the ferry services that connect the mainland to the Dutch Wadden islands. This report provides flood...
