A high drop-out rate is present during current-day air traffic controller (ATCo) training, because the required expertise level is not reached. The determination of the expertise level of ATCo students is currently performed using subjective assessments at a late stage in the training by means of high-fidelity simulator sessions. It is desired...

Over 450 oil platforms need to be removed from the North Sea in the next decade. Each of these platforms is custom designed for installation and service lifetime, but not for decommissioning. Allseas' Pioneering Spirit is the largest heavy lift vessel in the world, capable of lifting complete topsides in a single-lift operation. The vessel’s...

Lighting design is a computational expensive task, commonly done using Computer-aided design (CAD) software in a virtual scene. The designer places and tunes the virtual light sources and, yet the virtual environment is ideal for physically correct light tracing, the costly simulation might not provide the desired impression in the real scene....

The rapid growth of power systems supplied by sustainable energy sources and the attempt towards the decrease of CO₂ emissions has resulted in the increase of decentralized energy systems over the last decades. Tri-generation systems utilizing an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) can offer a reliable alternative towards that direction. In particular,...

Calibration of groundwater models can be done manually by comparing the measured and computed groundwater heads or automatically using algorithms which do the work for you. Modules for this purpose are included in or linked externally to traditional groundwater modelling software and used. One such module PEST (Parameter ESTimation) uses the...

The current rail infrastructure is used intensively in and around large cities, several functional network levels can be defined within the rail infrastructure. The combination of different network levels puts pressure on the available infrastructure capacity and investments are needed to increase the infrastructure capacity. The definition...

Given the difficulty that is normally associated with tuning highly nonlinear control systems, such as seen in LEO spacecraft, it is interesting to evaluate how new controller types perform. The measured data from the GOCE mission has led to the creation of high fidelity torque models describing the angular perturbations acting on a spacecraft....

Since its inception in 1975, Genetics Algorithms (GAs) have been successfully used as a tool for global optimization on non-convex problems in a wide range of real world applications. Its creation was inspired by natural adaptation and selection mechanisms that evolve from one population of chromosomes to a fitter population by means of an...

As Machine Learning is becoming more accessible to small businesses, thanks to the rapid advance in computing power, smaller start-ups such as Sjauf (a ride sharing start-up) are starting to get interested in implementing Machine Learning solutions in their product. Sjauf needed a system that could automatically tell its customers how much a...

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...

Surrogate models are used to approximate the expensive ‘true’ simulation codes and thus have the potential to speed up the wind farm layout optimisation problem (WFLOP). One technique to make surrogate models is Polynomial Chaos Expansion (PCE). PCE can approximate a (wind farm) model by using orthogonal polynomials which are constructed based...

The adoption of optimization algorithms has been slower in conceptual design compared to the later design phases. The choices made during the conceptual design phase have a large impact on the performance of the result. This research aims to find out why it is so hard to use optimization in conceptual design. Then a method is proposed to solve...

Surrogate modeling is a family of engineering techniques that attracts great interest today and can be applied in many challenging fields. A big advantage of it is that surrogate models (models based on these techniques) offer reliable results by being computationally cheaper than other candidate models. The savings in computational time is...

In my thesis, I have done research into the optimization of stopping patterns and frequencies of public transport services within a network. I have developed a model that takes both passenger and operator costs into account. The model has been run for a small fictional network and for the metro and train network of Amsterdam, to explore how the...

Insufficient information on soil parameters and their spatial variability pose as a main factors of uncertainty in geotechnical design. When soil response differs from the expected, the notion of inverse analysis becomes relevant; back-calculating the parameter set able to reproduce the monitored observations. Accordingly, its application...

The world’s greenhouse gas emissions have steadily increased as a result of the continued use of fossil fuels, causing climate change. Nevertheless, sustainable energy technologies implementation has increased steadily in the last decade as society attempts to transition to a sustainable, zero emission energy system. The consequences of climate...

This thesis deals with determination of Resistance (R) value and Heat Capacity of building envelopes in the commonly found residential architecture in Holland i.e. pitched roof houses. The aim of this thesis is to find an easy to implement novel method which gives reasonably accurate results. In the absence of actual sensor data, the data-sets...

Remote areas throughout the world often face great difficulties with regards to a cost-effective production of electricity and drinking water. To date, it is mostly done by means of diesel generators which are however subject to volatile market prices, high operational cost, logistical supply problems and environmental concerns. Stand-alone...

Optimization of structures in a domain with large uncertainties is rather difficult. This also applies for the offshore wind energy sector. For current offshore wind energy development locations with monopile-based support structures the fatigue limit state is the driving design criteria. These analyses are connected with long time domain...

Mine design and mine planning are essential to a mining operation as they do not only dictate the outline of the mine, but essentially determine the financial robustness and success of the mining operation. However, as mining is a conservative business mine design is still mostly done by hand. To indicate the effect of uncertainty in mine design...
