Large areas of the Netherlands are below the sea level, and a network of primary and secondary (regional) dikes protect these areas from inundation. Regular assessments and monitoring are implemented with the intention of ensuring the safety of the protected areas. However these assessments usually ignore that these dikes are subject to various...

An important step in determining the performance of a commercial ship is to determine the vessel fuel consumption in offdesign conditions. In previous studies, the vessel fuel consumption is obtained using machine learning algorithms which use navigational data and meteorological data to train the models. Due to the inaccuracy of the weather...

In this study, the effect of rapid laser heating, which is typical during laser-assisted fiber placement (LAFP), on the micro- and meso- structure of the thermoplastic tape was investigated. Thermoplastic tapes were heated above the melting temperature with different heated lengths (30 and 80 mm and heating times (0.2 and 0.8 s) in a...

The dynamic behavior of structural components can largely change in the presence of damages. Understanding this behavior is of particular importance for critical engineering systems, and in particular bridges. Damage identification methods forms a key objective in structural health monitoring of bridges so many researches have been conducted in...

The Dutch rail sector is one of the most heavily used rail networks in Europe. It plays a critical role in the domestic transportation of passengers. Disruptions in the operation of one organisation can have a cascading effect on others within the sector. Risk management needs to identify and address these weaknesses to prevent largescale...

The idea for this project was created by two Urologists at the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam. The design goal was to develop a diagnostic device that can be used to measure nocturnal (i.e. nightly) erections. The current device used to measure nocturnal erections was developed in the 1980s. There is a need for a modern tool that can be used in the...

The TSO of a power system is mainly responsible for ensuring the stability of the grid. Through continuous monitoring and control of the power system, the TSO maintains stability through emergency actions. Until now, the conventional Static State Estimation has been the Energy Management System (EMS) tool for estimating and monitoring the grid...

Solar energy is an abundant, scalable, and clean source of energy. With an exponential drop in prices of PV modules, more and more rooftop photovoltaic (PV) systems are being installed worldwide. Since these small-scale PV systems do not use expensive sensors, it is difficult to detect malfunctions for these systems. This could lead to lower...

The Dutch infrastructure counts many bridges, the majority of which are built in concrete. These bridges have been designed and constructed according to safety codes. A lot of these bridges date from the previous century and have been designed conform outdated safety codes. Therefore, the main problem<br/>of these bridges is the uncertainty with...

The Box contains monitoring devices patients can use to perform monitoring activities in the comfort of their home. The success of the service relies on active patient participation. With The Box, the treating medical team now has insights in the patient’s health condition from a distance. It doesn’t require the patient to be physically present...

An important subject in the research on the behaviour of railway structures is the validation of numerical models by means of in-track measurements. Many forms of track measurements have taken place all over the world, mainly in the sense of strain and acceleration measurements, but a more unexplored area is that of the direct measurement of...

The Airport Coordination Netherlands monitors the conformity of airlines to the allocated slots in cooperation with the relevant authorities. ACNL discovered the non-conformity behaviour of slot usage in Schiphol Airport of the Netherlands, and among nine types of misuses, this paper will discuss the one type of misuses: a flight operated at a...

Myanmar lacks a water quality monitoring system to monitor changes in water quality in the Ayeyarwady Basin. This study aims to find to what extent changes in water quality can be measured in the Ayeyarwady basin and to identify requirements for a water quality monitoring system. In this study, the current water quality monitoring systems of the...

Software testing is an integral part of the development of embedded systems. Among other reasons, tests are frequently used to ensure that a system meets all the specifications, which is especially important when designing systems for the medical industry. Software changes that have a detrimental impact on a real-time system's performance can...

Wind turbines are typically designed for an operational life of 20-25 years. The operation of the assets can be extended beyond their design life if structural components have sufficient reserves left. One approach is to monitor fatigue loads and compare these with design assumptions to determine the remaining useful lifetime of the assets. A...

The amount of people dealing with dementia is rising globally. The amount of caretakers is, however, not. Therefore, technological aids are needed to support people dealing with dementia and relieve the stress on their caretakers. Current solutions provide tracking of people with dementia. Also, different robots exist that provide people with...

An urban plan contains a set of agreements from all stakeholders that may directly impact livelihood. However, many cities show a ‘plan and forget’ behavior by not monitoring and evaluating their urban plans. While local citizens are often excluded after the urban plan is enacted. Gibbs (2016) warned of the risk of this behavior by saying, ...

Structural health monitoring of maritime and offshore structures can contribute to the reduction of the amount of uncertainty in assessment of the operational loads and the structural integrity. Such a survey can also reduce the large safety margins during the design and optimize the conservative inspection and maintenance schedules. One of the...
