To align with the objective of the European Green Deal [46] policy of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the construction sector must transition to a circular built environment. Most of the waste in the Netherlands is related to construction and demolition waste, with the industry accounting for approximately 35% of CO<sub>2<...

Gaining insights into anticipated future expenses is essential for both the planning and construction phases of a project. A significant factor in future costs, particularly over extended periods, is the variability of material and labor prices. the change in costs over time, known as ’cost escalation,’ has been the focus of numerous research...

This paper aims to assess the influence of geometrical imperfections and residual stresses on the reliability of the stability design rules for steel columns in Eurocode 3 considering a full probabilistic approach and further validate the new buckling curves in the scope of the ongoing revision of the Structural Eurocodes. A reliability...

The use of reactive working fluids in thermodynamic cycles is currently being considered as an alternative to inert working fluids, because of the preliminarily attested higher energy-efficiency potential. The current needs to simulate their use in thermodynamic cycles, which may operate in liquid, vapour or vapour-liquid state, are an...

We explore the impact of force field parameters and reaction equilibrium on the scaling behavior towards the critical point in reactive binary systems, focusing on NO <sub>2</sub>/N <sub>2</sub>O <sub>4</sub>. This system can be considered as a special single-component system since NO <sub>2</sub> and N <sub>2</sub>O <sub>4</sub> are in...

Hydrogen peroxide plays a key role in many environmental and industrial chemical processes. We performed classical Molecular Dynamics and Continuous Fractional Component Monte Carlo simulations to calculate thermodynamic properties of H<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2</sub> in aqueous solutions. The quality of the available force fields for H<sub>2</sub>O...

This paper presents a data-driven approach to predict the pipelines’ corrosion-induced Burst failure. In this approach, different aspects of pit growth progression and spatial distribution of pits are simulated. The proposed approach takes advantage of population characteristics to model these aspects of the degradation paths for each pipe...

Emergency response is a procedural safety barrier of paramount importance for the mitigation of fire scenarios and the prevention of escalation. However, in Natech scenarios, emergency response may be affected by the natural event impacting the site. Indeed, when contrasting Natech accidents, emergency responders have to face both the natural...

Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac arrhythmia resulting from abnormal electrical conduction and impulse formation within the atria. To address this condition, a minimally invasive procedure called cardiac ablation is performed. Real-time visual feedback during this procedure plays a critical role in determining its success.<br/><br/>Photoacoustic...

Barrier options, although highly liquid financial derivatives, present notable pricing challenges. In this thesis, we present a novel pricing approach for valuing continuously-monitored knock-out barrier options within the framework of stochastic volatility models.<br/><br/>The underlying process is firstly modelled under geometric Brownian...

With the energy transition taking up speed and strong decarbonisation ambitions offshore wind is becoming a major source of green electricity. European countries are among the leading drivers of the offshore wind expansion on both the wind turbine as well as the vessels side. It is expected that until 2030 170 GW of capacity can be installed,...

Burns can make patients’ lives quite miserable. Apart from prominent and thickened, or hypertrophic, scars, the skin may be characterized by contraction. When this contraction is so severe that the patient loses joint mobility, it is called contracture. Then a patient may have difficulties with sports or other daily activities. The consequence...

Loss of control (LOC) is the primary cause of failure of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). The safety of these systems can be largely improved by facilitating techniques to prevent LOC to occur, such as Flight Envelope Protection, enabling controllers to keep the system within the Safe Flight Envelope (SFE).<br/>The aim of this work is to examine...

The planning of railway operations is a very complex process, in which timetables and other logistical plans need to be both reliable and robust to effectively prevent and cope with disturbances. However, research in the robustness of initial stabling plans, designed in an earlier planning phase, during the following planning phases, has been...

The computation of multivariate expectations is a common task in various fields related to probability theory. This thesis aims to develop a generic and efficient solver for multivariate expectation problems, with a focus on its application in the field of quantitative finance, specifically for the quantification of Counterparty Credit Risk (CCR...

The past decades have seen the rapid development of many aspects of synthetic biology. For example, attempts to build synthetic cells under controlled conditions in the laboratory have led to significant achievements. Following a bottom-up approach, scientists aim at building a self-reproducing synthetic cell with a minimum number of biological...

In the global energy transition where the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy is needed, wind energy is a growing industry. In the offshore wind industry, Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) are needed to operate and maintain wind farms. To reduce the environmental footprint of SOVs at offshore wind farms, the possibility of battery...

With the current focus on climate change, the shipping industry is forced to decarbonise its fleet. The need for decarbonisation is not only fuelled by the aspirations of the sector but also by laws and regulations from countries and organisations. As these laws are gradually tightening and there is not one clear technical or operational...

The EAD metric is widely used in the calculations for the capital requirements concerning Counterparty Credit Risk (CCR). In this thesis we compare several methods for calculating this EAD. Basel III gives us two methods, the Standardized Approach for CCR (SA-CCR) and the Internal Model Method (IMM). Furthermore, we introduce an integrated...

American option pricing has been an active research area in financial engineering over the past few decades. Since no analytic closed-form solution exists, various numerical approaches have been developed. Among all proposed methods, the least square Monte Carlo(LSMC) approach is the most successful and popular. The LSMC utilizes linear...
