To evaluate traffic signal controllers, and vehicle-actuated traffic signal controllers in particular, in terms of how they are performing with respect to the road authority’s policies on traffic flow and accessibility, traffic safety, and environmental factors, several methods are developed in practice. However, in scientific literature, little...

This thesis focuses on the field of Job Recommendation. Particularly, we focus on using implicit preferences exhibited by the job seeker in interactions with a web platform to propose an improved ranking algorithm for a job recommendation platform called Magnet.me. We also study evaluation of relevance, and evaluation of recommendation sorting...

Ports are the most important nodes in the supply chain of cargo and improving their sustainability will positively affect the sector as a whole. This improvement can be achieved by incorporating stakeholders in the process of port development. Social, environmental and economic development achieved together are defined as sustainable development...

The crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) has been utilized in pavement industries to mainly reduce the environmental impacts of the wasted tires by turning unwanted scrap tires into new bituminous materials. However, the relatively high viscosity compared to the conventional asphalt is the major drawback of the CRMB. The higher mixing and...

Introduction: The use of participatory techniques in the field of transport is coming to the forefront recently. In this frame, eight co-creation workshops and five online crowdsourcing campaigns took place in Thessaloniki, Southern Tuscany, Rotterdam/The Hague, and Frankfurt, from which many innovative ideas to enhance Public Transport were...

In this report the potential effect of framing on the decision-making process in participatory value evaluation is researched. Participatory Value Evaluation, PVE, is a method of evaluating citizens preference targeted towards public projects and their budget. For instance, PVE can measure the preference of citizens when allocating alternative...

The Space@Sea platform is a sustainable offshore modular platform designed for a workspace at sea as an effort in coping up with the economic growth and allocating marine resources to more efficient uses. There are four potential applications of the platform: farming, transport & logistics hub, energy hub, and living spaces. In the case of...

The growing call for public participation in the context of the energy transition has been accompanied by an upswing in the number of studies evaluating participatory practices. While this is essentially a positive, and even necessary, development in our understanding of what makes good public participation, the practical usability of the...

The Eigenmode Distortion (EMD) analysis is a novel method for objective evaluation of simulator motion cueing fidelity, developed at Delft University of Technology. It expresses the distortions of the perceived motion cues in terms of the dynamic modes of a linear model of the vehicle and has been applied to assess rotorcraft simulations. This...

Smart cities try to use technology and data to improve the efficiency of city services, to address societal challenges and to improve collaboration between citizens and government. Driving such social change requires a deep socio-ecological transition with both organisations and individual's lifestyles needing to change. This has led to an...

In the evaluation of measurements on characteristics of forensic trace evidence, Aitken and Lucy (2004) model the data as a two-level model using assumptions of normality where likelihood ratios are used as a measure for the strength of evidence. A two-level model assumes two sources of variation: the variation within measurements in a group ...

The usability now serves as a fundamental quality of a computational device, e.g. smartphone. Moreover, the smartphone has firmly embedded into our daily life as an indispensable part, so the context and style that user may interact with them are largely different from a decade ago. Nowadays, testing usability with end user has become a...

Despite the rapid development of risk analysis in dam engineering, there is a relative absence of research on the environmental impact of dam break. As a systematic theory, set pair analysis has a good effect in dealing with uncertainties, although the result is relatively rough and easy to distort. A connection degree of five grades and a...

Objective: Tailored communication and information provision is expected to contribute to patient-centred care (PCC) in total hip arthroplasty (THA). In previous research, three subgroups of THA patients were identified that are similar in their clinical, psychological and communication characteristics. Preliminary subgroup-specific design...

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to describe the quasi-experiment setting to test the formulated design support (developed in the author’s PhD research) within a design research methodology (DRM) framework. This support intends to help designers to consciously engage rural families within a development aid scenario and increase their...

The proliferation of big-data processing platforms has already led to radically different system designs, such as MapReduce and the newer Spark. Understanding the workloads of such systems enables tuning and could foster new designs. However, whereas MapReduce workloads have been characterized extensively, relatively little public knowledge...

Cost-benefit analyses for transportation projects usually value impacts on safety and travel time through experiments in which consumers of mobility (‘drivers’) choose between routes which differ in safety and travel time. This approach has been criticized for failing to consider that private choices may not fully reflect citizens’...

In previous researches, the thermodynamic modelling of alkali-activated slag was conducted as a function of the degree of reaction of slag, which makes it difficult to compare the modelling results with the experimental results in a time scale. In this study, the reaction kinetics of sodium hydroxide activated slag was studied using...

The ongoing increase in urbanization and traffic congestion creates an urgent need to operate our transportation systems with maximum efficiency. Traffic signal control optimization is considered one of the main ways to solve traffic problems in urban networks. In publications in the field of intelligent transportation systems, a vast amount of...

Large, complex coastal regions often require a combination of interventions to lower the risk of flooding to an acceptable level. In practice, a limited number of strategies are considered and interdependencies between interventions are often simplified. This paper presents the Multiple Lines of Defence Optimization System (MODOS)‐model. This...
