In the framework of the High Luminosity LHC project at CERN, the need for further incorporation of evaluation of radiation damage into the design of beam intercepting devices at CERN is described and the risks of radiation damage in high energy applications are summarized. Radiation damage can be an important topic in high energy applications...

Risk management is undoubtedly a precious component of the overall project management field. It assists in identifying, assessing and mitigating the uncertainties that are present in a project. These uncertainties affect important measures of a project, of which cost and schedule are the most prominent, and consequently put project success under...

Subsea pipeline are extensively used for the transport of hydrocarbons from offshore wells, to platforms, pump stations and to onshore facilities. Because the installation of pipelines is time consuming it is responsible for a significant amount of the total costs of a project. Thus the workability of the installation is of great importance.When...

Evolution of coastline position under the influence of natural and anthropogenic processes is directly linked to the development of seaside societies. In the context of coastal zone management, process-based morphodynamic models are often used topredict coastline evolution and support the decision-making process...

Recent Reinforcement Learning methods have combined function approximation and Monte Carlo Tree Search and are able to learn by self-play up to a very high level in several games such as Go and Hex. One aspect in this combination
that has not had a lot of attention is the action selection policy during self-play, which could influence the...

In well-bore engineering, oil-well boreholes are made using specialized drilling rigs. The position of the drill bit needs to be indirectly determined through accelero- and magnetometer measurements. To this end, the measurement data is first converted into a survey of direction vectors by applying a series of coordinate transformations. Then, a...

The detection of unusual behavior plays a crucial role in the prevention of illegal and harmful activities such as smuggling, piracy, arms trading, human trafficking and illegal immigration. Also for military applications, it is useful to detect anomalous behavior to provide an alert for potential threats, especially with the more recent...

Full-waveform inversion within a deterministic framework commonly uses gradient-based methods to minimize a least-squares error function. Due to the non-linearity of the problem, this function has several local minima. To avoid them, it is necessary to start the optimization procedure from a good initial model. Within a probabilistic framework,...

This study focuses on the question how the bandwidth utilization of a high-quality video-stream from the Exposure Rendering framework can be minimized. Exposure Render uses a Monte-Carlo based rendering system to render volumetric data. The earliest estimation of lighting show high degrees of noise, leading to grainy images before...

For performing technical maintenance, it is important to keep a detailed schedule of resources and temporal constraints. The Resource Constrained Project Scheduling Problem (RCPSP) is a well de- fined scheduling model with both resources and temporal constraints. Precedence Constraint Posting (PCP) is a technique to solve the NP-hard RCPSP...

Loss of control is considered as the primary cause of fatal accidents in aviation, which occurs when the aircraft has left the safe flight envelope. To reduce loss-of-control-related accidents, it is important to estimate the safe flight envelope at the current flight condition and integrate it into flight control system design. This task is...

Pipe laying projects are getting more challenging due to increasing operational depth of pipeline. The increasing depth requires more of the strength and load bearing capability of the pipeline and its girth welds. The assessment method used for checking the integrity of flaws in girth welds is called Engineering Critical Assessment (ECA) and is...

This report, which from now and onwards will be called the main body of the thesis, covers the core of the
problem that has to be solved. Generally, the aim of this thesis is to investigate a laminated composite’s
structural response, made of FRP, when its material properties are assumed stochastic instead of
deterministic. The...

The project concerns uncertainty reduction of parameters of a thermodynamic equation of state for a dense gas, using Bayesian inference. The dense gas considered is D6 siloxane and the equation of state used is the polytropic van der Waals equation. The shock tube data comes from the flexible asymmetric shock tube (FAST) experiment. This is...

Surrogate modeling is a family of engineering techniques that attracts great interest today and can be applied in many challenging fields. A big advantage of it is that surrogate models (models based on these techniques) offer reliable results by being computationally cheaper than other candidate models. The savings in computational time is...

In this report two Agent-Based Models, the Passenger Model and the Transfer Model, will be constructed and analyzed. The objective is to make a realistic model inspired by a cell-based model to simulate passenger flows on a train platform. We will start by studying the cell-based model and we will explain which aspects have been applied to our...

In this report the method of Markov chain Monte Carlo maximum
likelihood estimation was used to estimate parameters in the Ising model
and the exponential random graph model. The method and the models
where described mathematically and problems that occurred during the
estimation process where discussed. A package that executes...

Insufficient information on soil parameters and their spatial variability pose as a main factors of uncertainty in geotechnical design. When soil response differs from the expected, the notion of inverse analysis becomes relevant; back-calculating the parameter set able to reproduce the monitored observations. Accordingly, its application...

The energy demand in current times has increased greatly in last few years. This increasing demand calls for a sustainable and clean energy resource that would reduce the load on non-renewable resources. Wind energy is a renewable resource which is harnessed by mankind from an ancient era. So as to meet this increasing energy demands, innovation...

This thesis is about pricing European options and forward start options under the Heston LSV model. The impact of conditionally calibrating the Heston parameters on the satisfaction of the Feller condition and thereafter correcting with a local volatility surface is investigated here. The results show that this approach is computationally time...
