<b>Background</b><br/>Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a progressive, chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disorder, affecting 0.5-1.5% of the world's population. Current RA disease activity assessment methods rely on subjective, labor-intensive methods. Therefore, an unmet need exists for objectively assessing RA disease activity through a low-labor...

Winter, Theun (author)
The surge in demand for inland vessel goods transportation has necessitated the operation of larger vessels with increased drafts. These larger vessels generate significant induced loads from their more powerful bow thrusters during berthing and mooring. These loads can lead to scour, which ultimately results in instability of the quay wall. To...

Many cities are implementing car-reducing measures to achieve goals related to livability, such as climate change reduction, air quality improvements, improved living space, improved health and safety and reduced costs. Policies at the local, national, and supranational levels affect the measures that cities can take. This thesis addresses the...

Urban areas of coastal cities are increasingly susceptible to the consequences of climate change. In particular, the threat of increasing floods due to sea level rise and heavier rainfall is growing. Cartagena de Indias in Colombia is such a coastal city, where flooding is a significant issue, with floods becoming more frequent in recent decades...

This research addresses the issue of rising soil temperatures, driven by climate change. As the Drinking Water Distribution System (DWDS) is located in the sub-surface, the drinking water temperature in the distribution mains attains this rising soil temperature. Because the temperature of drinking water is an important determinant of water...

Aviation is an important contributor to anthropogenic climate change. As indirect greenhouse gases, nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO + NO2) add to the Effective Radiative Forcing (ERF) induced by aircraft emissions. This work addresses a better understanding of emission mitigation by investigating dependencies between engine parameters and emitted...

Governments are looking more and more to invest in renewable energy sources due to the energy transition that is currently taking place. One of the many renewable energy sources is wind energy which is increasingly positioned at sea. Wind turbines in deep parts of the ocean can be placed on floating structures which are often moored to the sea...

When considering air quality, notably in South America, it seems that we are falling behind more developed regions in exacerbating the issue. This shortfall serves not just as observation, but as a warning, as air quality problems here are rapidly escalating. Nevertheless, by examining how other countries have addressed similar issues, we can...

Accurately determining the early Post-Mortem Interval (PMI), the period shortly after death, is critical for reconstructing the timeline of suspected crimes. The PHOEBE model, a new thermodynamic finite-difference model that simulates body cooling, significantly improves PMI estimations but is highly sensitive to the thermal conductivity of the...

The increase in non-linear loads of modern electronics raises concerns over power quality. Additionally, existing power-quality analyzers are expensive and not intended for household use. This thesis aims to develop a single-phase, user-friendly power-quality analyzer using a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with an emphasis on low cost and class S...

Moonen, Siirilotta (author)
Hydropeaking is a widely applied management practice in the generation of hydropower. When the demand in electricity is high, the operator of a hydropower plant rapidly increases released discharges to meet this demand. Vice versa, when the demand is low, no or less water is released. However, while river regulation practices offer valuable...

Ganeshpure, D.A. (author)
The integration of wind and solar energy through power electronic converters has introduced new challenges to High Voltage (HV) equipment in the electrical power system. Switchgear, cables, and transformers are now subject to higher dV/dt stress and complex wave shapes due to solid-state switching. This poses a threat to the reliability of the...

Time synchronization is of paramount importance on the Internet, with the Network Time Protocol (NTP) serving as the primary synchronization protocol. The NTP Pool, a volunteer-driven initiative launched two decades ago, facilitates connections between clients and NTP servers. Our analysis of root DNS queries reveals that the NTP Pool has...

The aeronautical sector faces challenges in meeting its net-zero ambition by 2050. To achieve this target, much effort has been devoted to exploring sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). Accordingly, we evaluated the technical performance of potential SAF production in an integrated first- and second-generation sugarcane biorefinery focusing on...

In this study, an infrared system is developed for accurate measurements of surface temperature and heat transfer on fast moving targets. The system was designed for the Oxford Turbine Research Facility, a world-leading experimental facility delivering highly engine representative, scalable heat transfer results for aerospace research....

To analyze inherent and diverse patterns within line-based public transport daily delay occurrences, we introduce a data-driven exploratory analysis focused on the spatial-temporal distribution of these delays. Our approach relies on the utilization of the image pattern recognition technique and k-means clustering algorithm. We extract daily...

Traffic interactions between merging and highway vehicles are a major topic of research, yielding many empirical studies and models of driver behaviour. Most of these studies on merging use naturalistic data. Although this provides insight into human gap acceptance and traffic flow effects, it obscures the operational inputs of interacting...

In this paper, the full calibration chain of FMCW radar with simultaneous transmission of two orthogonally polarized orthogonal waveforms is considered. Specifically for this type of polarimetric radar, compensation of signals’ biases and equalization of the amplification gains of the parallel polarimetric channels in the receiver are jointly...

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...

Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks continue to threaten the availability of Internet-based services. While countermeasures exist to decrease the impact of these attacks, not all operators have the resources or knowledge to deploy them. Alternatively, anti-DDoS services such as DDoS clearing houses and blackholing have emerged....
