This study proposes a framework to analyze accelerated degradation testing (ADT) data in the presence of inspection effects. Motivated by a real dataset from the electric industry, we study two types of effects induced by inspections. After each inspection, the system degradation level instantaneously reduces by a random value. Meanwhile, the...

Automated vehicles (AVs) have been a dream for a long time. From science fiction in the 1930s to countless prototypes, extensive road testing, and first use cases at present, the technology has clearly come a long way. So too has the vision of practitioners and academics matured to recognise the various potential benefits (e.g., accessibility,...

In the past decade the role of wooden fences, containing brushwood and branches, in efforts to restoring mangroves has been recognized since a vast reduction of mangroves occurred along the Mekong deltaic coast. This study aims to better understand the hydrodynamic performance related to the possible mechanism of wave reduction and the influence...

A new semi-analytical model is developed to predict the dynamic response of slender gates in combination with an overhang, which are subjected to standing waves. Still little is known for these types of gates for this specific forcing type. The semi-analytical model is still in its development phase and must be validated on its performance. This...

Wind energy is now a popular competitor among other energy sources all around the world. The offshore wind industry has progressed in recent years, with larger wind turbines being installed in deeper oceans. The construction of such large-scale wind farms necessitates more modern foundation design technologies to increase operational safety...

The failure of composite laminates is most commonly evaluated through deterministic approaches. However, even though these traditional methods predict the failure well on average, they cannot take into account the inherent probabilistic aspect of failure mechanics. Thus, reliability methods allow for a better structural assessment and improve...

Due to an increase demand for renewable and sustainable forms of energy, the offshore wind industry is growing rapidly. To make wind energy more cost-effective, new wind turbines are becoming larger in size and are placed further offshore. This results in deeper waters, making the installation more difficult. The current methodology uses a jack...

Background: Automated vehicles are promoted as a safety improvement, but they may also bring a new problem of ‘out of the loop’ errors. Automation support in the form of gaze-contingent feedback might be the solution for these errors. Using the SEEV model, operator’s attention allocation can be predicted and using live gaze data, the driver’s...

Cities are growing worldwide, which leads to an increase in trips in urban areas. In Europe, more than half of the trips are made by car, while car takes most space of all modalities. Of all modalities car has the highest CO2 emissions. Thehigh number of trips by car within cities lead to challenges related to the accessibility, livability, and...

Following the Paris Agreement, the national government of the Netherlands reached the Climate Agreement together with more than 100 organizations. As part of this agreement, the industry sector is faced with the ambitious goal of 59% CO2 reduction in 2030 with respect to 1990 levels. Since the naphtha cracking industry is one of the most...

Hydrological models are used for all kinds of water management applications. Detailed hydrological simulations are needed to solve the hydrological problems of the 21st century, especially in developing countries. However, sufficient hydrological and meteorological data is often not available. The use of remote sensing (RS) datasets may offer a...

The adverse human contribution to global climate change has forced the yachting industry to acknowledge the need to reduce its environmental impact due to the client's increasing pressure and potential future regulations to limit the ecological effects. Unfortunately, current real-world data presents a significant disparity between predicted and...

This research concerned the design and implementation of a system to perform the 3D conversion of a national road network using airborne Lidar data and land-based road elevation measurements, preserving its topology and quantifying output elevation accuracy. While the system was designed with generality in mind, specific Dutch open data datasets...

This dissertation's ultimate goal is to provide solutions to two problems that the promising data assimilation method, called the Particle Filter, has when applied to high dimensional non-linear models, such as those often used in hydrological research and forecasting. Two local particle filters have been proposed to overcome three major issues....

Historical 3D city models have been increasingly used for the preservation and communication of the cultural heritage to a wider and more diversified public. In the recent years, they have also been of a growing interest in other domains such as in urbanism or in economy. However, their potential for supporting new use cases has been restricted...

This thesis proposes a truck arrival shift (TAS) policy to control truck arrivals at seaport terminals. The aim is to reduce congestion at terminal gates which is caused by a lack of port-hinterland alignment. We proposed, developed, and applied a modeling framework to assesses the impact of the TAS policy for the use case of the Port of...

Placing wind turbines together is economically advantageous. It helps in decreasing the use of land or sea space, impact on the landscape and the cost of installation and maintenance. However, placing turbines together has a downside: the aerodynamics interaction caused by the wakes can negatively influence the total electrical power production...

Tidal energy has a large potential to contribute to achieving the sustainability goals in the Netherlands, due to the long coastline and many estuaries. The investment costs for the implementation of offshore tidal energy are however, still a drawback. A possibility to lower the investment costs for tidal energy is to implement tidal energy...

In this PhD thesis, we investigated possible steel candidates for use in railway crossings in order to reduce the damage in them. Pearlitic R350HT together with Bainitic grades including CrB, B1400 and carbide free B360 were investigated for their mechanical properties such as ultimate strength, yield strength, ductility and hardness. The...

In this empirically-driven, practice oriented research, the rural water sector in sub-Saharan Africa is examined from a systems perspective. In the face of rapidly changing and uncertain futures, the need for policy makers and practitioners to identify and respond to the multiple, seemingly intractable problems that give rise to stagnating water...
