Floating wind seems to be on the cusp of achieving large-scale diffusion with the commissioning of floating wind farms of commercial-scale. From a single full-scale prototype off the Norwegian coast in 2009, now to double digit rated capacity floating wind turbines to be commissioned by the end of 2022 and tens of gigawatts of installed capacity...

The last decade has seen an immense growth in solar PV systems (both large-scale solar PV systems and distributed solar PV systems). It is expected that this growth will continue due to environmental concerns. Since conventional generators are defined by their physics and control, and solar PV systems are defined solely by their control...

Least-squares support-vector-machines are a frequently used supervised learning method for nonlinear regression and classification. The method can be implemented by solving either its primal problem or dual problem. In the dual problem a linear system needs to be solved, yet for large-scale problems this can be impractical as current methods...

The visualization of objects within or beyond a turbulent medium is hampered by the aberrations the medium induces in the wavefront. The sharpness of an image is maximal when the incoming wavefront is flat, with aberrated wavefronts yielding distorted images of limited utility. In the particular case of astronomy, the flat wavefront of the light...

All over the world coastal communities are at risk due to sea-level rise and intensifying weather conditions. Many sandy beaches are eroding as a result of human-induced factors. Currently, the preferred coastal protection measure in the United States are beach nourishments. In Europe, there also is a general shift from hard to soft coastal...

The needs and interests for 3D data based on large-scale topography are increasing. A wide variety of these 3D data needs have emerged in multiple domains and for many different applications. Though, research have shown that the interoperability of this 3D data nowadays still is a challenging task. Many barriers are caused by different...

Around the world, there are 58 Small Island Developing States (SIDS). What these SIDS generally have in common is that they are very susceptible to different natural hazards, among which coastal flooding. In order to address this issue, adaptation measures are needed. In order to prioritize adaptation efforts when considering these islands at a...

Given the increasing popularity of Machine Learning, and the ever increasing need to solve larger and more complex learning challenges, it is unsurprising that numerous distributed learning strategies have been brought forward in recent years, along with many large scale Machine Learning frameworks. It is however unclear how well these...

For large-scale system with tens of thousands of states and outputs the computation in the conventional Kalman filter becomes time-consuming such that Kalman filtering in large-scale real-time application is practically infeasible. A possible mathematical framework to lift the curse of dimensionality is to lift the problem in higher dimensions...

The term last-mile delivery refers to the final leg of a business-to-customer service, in which a product is shipped from a depot to a final destination point by means of land transportation, such as vans and small trucks. Although they provide a common and easy way to consign products, companies are striving for new transport technologies to...

This research aims to provide a method for large-scale commercial electricity consumers to procure towards 100% hourly matched renewable electricity. A problem with the current electricity balancing system is that the energy produced by Variable Renewable Energy sources (VRES), such as wind and solar PV, has a weather-dependent production...

It is already acknowledged that Nature-based Solutions can be used to attenuate waves, however it is still uncertain to what extent the vegetation can contribute to decreasing the flood risk. So far mainly small-scale tests have been performed to quantify wave attenuating properties of vegetation. To quantify the effect of more extreme wave...

The coastline of the United States has been threatened by significant erosion for the past decades. A study in 2000 predicted that 25% of the houses located within 150 meters of the shoreline will be destroyed by erosion in 2060. The east coast of the US experiences an average erosion rate of roughly one meter per year. Moreover, the Atlantic...

The continuous pursuit of reducing drag in many speed sports, such as cycling and ice-skating, demands novel approaches to gain further insight into flow phenomena around athletes. In recent years, the Ring of Fire measurement technique has emerged as a feasible option to visualise and analyse flow structures of transiting objects based on...

To counteract the effect of climate change, a global agreement was put into force in 2016, aiming to limit the increase in average global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In that respect, European countries are investing in cleaner sources of energy and predominantly offshore wind, which has seen a rapid growth over the last years....

The urgency to innovate for organisational survival has become increasingly recognised, with the result that innovation has conquered a position high on the management agenda. However, the unfamiliarity around innovation poses a challenge for innovation management. No unique solution exists to building a successful innovation approach, such that...

Agile methods seem to be the answer for today’s turbulent industries, and with it roots in software development, coincides neatly with the increasingly digital world we live in. ABN AMRO also decided to implement a large scale agile framework tailored to their company. Agile methodologies are known to work well at small scale and in an IT...

The search for new sources of ancillary services and the projected demand for hydrogen as a medium of energy storage has aroused considerable interest in the use of large scale electrolysers for power system ancillary services. As the number of large scale electrolysers is projected to grow, it is important that the dynamics of these plants are...

Aerodynamics investigations in speed sports generally consist of measurements of aerodynamic loads through wind tunnel experiments. Lately, a new technique has emerged, known as the Ring of Fire. It is the only drag measurement technique capable of retrieving flow field data on-site, by using Large-Scale PIV. In this Ring-of-Fire project a Low...

Car industry and motorsport development nowadays strongly rely on wind tunnel testing. As the literature survey shows, in order to fully understand the characteristics of the flow around a car, large-scale and volumetric flow field measurements are required. For its features, PIV can be pointed as a useful technique for automotive wind tunnels....
