Kroon, J. (author)
Because of the large uncertainties associated with rising sea levels, present coastal management is inclined towards utilizing soft, nature-inclusive, and adaptive measures over traditional hard protection structures. This shift towards more sustainable and multi-functional solutions is often called Building with Nature. In the coastal zone,...

Dekker, Joris (author)
Urbanisation has increased the worlds' cities populations and influenced the living conditions within these cities. Temperatures rise, the air becomes more polluted and noise levels increase. It has been proven that types of vegetation such as plants and trees can reduce the negative effects of urbanisation by for instance cooling cities,...

The main bearing is a critical wind turbine drivetrain component, and its failure can cause the turbine shutdown and expensive repair. As the main bearing degrades, its temperature increases, indicating health deterioration of the component. Various methods proposed in the literature employ physics-based normal behavior models (NBMs) using...

Food and medicines are two of the most essential categories of goods for human beings, providing vital nourishment and healthcare. However, as these products are commercialized and distributed on a global scale, consumers face the threat of counterfeit and deteriorated products. In response, this dissertation presents four prototypes consisting...

The global awareness of the environmental and economic advantages of the circular economy (CE) concept has grown significantly. In order to implement this concept into company practices, a vital starting point is the adoption of a measurement framework. In the past years, the evolution of CE metrics resulted in maturity and practical...

Governments worldwide are planning car-free policies to increase the livability of cities. However, car-free policies often face opposition from local stakeholders, and policy-makers often lack relevant model indicators to represent all stakeholder interests in their ex-ante car-free policy evaluations. Well-being (Dutch: Brede Welvaart)...

In the long-term mining of geothermal resources in hot dry rock (HDR), the change of thermal stress and pore pressure will increase fracture conductivity evolution, further improving production performance. The optimization and decision-making of the development scheme based on the impact of damage from fractures have yet to be reported. The...

Enabling cycling at the home side or at the activity side of transit trips has been recognized as a promising solution to address transit network discrepancies and enhance connectivity between residents and employment opportunities. However, this multimodal solution is conditional to bicycle parking and cycle lanes, and urban planners need...

The low-temperature relaxation and fatigue cracking performance are two essential aspects in estimating the rejuvenation efficiency of recycling agents (RAs). This study aims to fundamentally investigate the effects of recycling agent type/dosage and aging degree of bitumen on thermodynamic and rheological properties of rejuvenated bitumen at...

This study implements molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to explore the atomic-level energy properties of rejuvenated bitumen, considering the influence of different recycling agent (RA) types, dosages and aging levels of bitumen. Moreover, the potential correlations between energy indices and high-temperature performance of rejuvenated bitumen...

BACKGROUND: The increasing prevalence of DH applications has outpaced research and practice in digital health (DH) evaluations. Patient experience (PEx) was reported as one of the challenges facing the health system by the World Health Organization. To generate evidence on DH and promote the appropriate integration and use of technologies, a...

In response to pressing global challenges like climate change, rapid population growth, and an urgent need for sustainable infrastructure, cities face an immediate and crucial necessity to transition swiftly toward an integrated approach to managing urban water resources. This shift is not merely an option but an imperative, driven by the...

Developing comprehensive health indicators (HIs) for composite structures encompassing various damage types is challenging due to the stochastic nature of damage accumulation and uncertain events (like impact) during operation. This complexity is amplified when striving for HIs independent of historical data. This paper introduces an AI...

Du, Ximing (author)
At present, many studies have begun to focus on evaluating urban accessibility and livability, which can be a series of great guidance for future urban planning considering residents’ personal perceptions of various living aspects. It can be observed from the existing literature that urban accessibility has a mature evaluation system,...

The global transport sector currently contributes 23% of carbon dioxide emissions, a figure set to double by 2050 without mitigation efforts. While Scope 3 emissions, notably in container transport, are challenging to address, they constitute over half of all emissions. This study explores cargo owners' perspectives on Scope 3 emissions and...

This research addresses the environmental impact of foundations in lightweight housing units, focusing on BAM's timber house concept, FLOW. While the engineered timber superstructure is environmentally conscious, the foundation's contribution is often overlooked. The study aims to minimise the Environmental Cost Indicator (ECI) of FLOW houses by...

Large parts of the Netherlands lay below mean sea level. An extensive network of flood protection measures is in place to prevent flooding. Periodic safety assessment and reinforcement are required to guarantee a resilient system. Currently, in the Netherlands, an extensive sea dike reinforcement program is underway to meet the safety standards...
