The Internet of Things (IoT) consists out of billions of devices. This vast size magnifies the security and efficiency challenges the IoT faces. Blockchain (BC) features like decentralisation, immutability and smart contracts can negate these IoT challenges. <br/>In this paper we discuss how BC based solutions can significantly increase the...

On a general level, the Dutch government wants to have a fully circular economy by 2050 by reducing the use of primary materials and carbon dioxide emissions. As the consideration and integration of concepts such as sustainability and circular economy are becoming increasingly popular in the civil engineering sector, it might be time to re...

The International Energy Agency (IEA) emphasizes that using real building energy use data (RBEUD) to reflect the actual condition of buildings and inform policy-making is the most effective way to reduce buildings’ carbon emissions. However, based on IEA’s evaluation, regional and national building stock data are limited and lacking. Especially...

In this work, three distinct heteroepitaxial single-crystal boron-doped diamond (SC-BDD) electrodes were fabricated and subjected to detailed surface analysis and electrochemical characterization. Specifically, the heteroepitaxy approach allowed to synthesize large-area (1 cm<sup>2</sup>) and heavily-doped (100)-oriented SC-BDD electrodes....

In the last decades, recent earthquakes have further highlighted the high vulnerability of non-structural components. Post-earthquake damage due to building envelope, equipment and building contents can lead to substantial economic losses in terms of repair costs and daily activity interruption (downtime). Moreover, non-structural damage can...

The Netherlands is a northwestern European country. The location makes the Netherlands an important entry for trade to the European continent resulting in high traffic intensities [1]. The Netherlands has one of the densest road networks in the world, having over 139.000km of roadways [2, 3]. The understanding of the link between the functional...

Reducing greenhouse emissions can be achieved by better insulating buildings. However, wall thickness increases significantly if conventional insulation materials are used. Conventional vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) offer a solution to this problem. VIPs have potential, but can not compete with conventional insulation materials due to their...

Seismic events have shown the hazardous and expensive consequences resulting from seismic damage of non-structural elements. For this reason, the concern regarding the seismic performance of glazed curtain walls has acquired more relevance in the building industry; however, there is still a gap of information in the literature about this topic....

Containerization, a lightweight form of virtualization, increasingly became more popular in the last decade. Containers can offer a level of isolation and privacy to the user, which are not always sought after. High performance computing workloads benefit from having a custom container filesystem, but would suffer from any overhead incurred by...

Port performance is under pressure due to high congestion levels and a need to reduce GHG emissions. The industry is looking for ways to increase efficiency in ports. A promising concept is known as port call optimization where waiting times and turn-around times can be reduced. This research contributes to the body of port call optimization...

The support for the hybrid work setting increased during the pandemic, but there are a lot of challenges to overcome. It is important to study the hybrid work setting. Based on the findings in the existing literature it is found that little research has been done on the effect of the hybrid work setting on individual employee performance. In the...

The population of the world is increasing at a rapid rate and is expected to reach 9.7billion by 2050. Out of this, around 6.3billion people will be living in urban areas. With an ever increasing population, the demand for energy and resources is also increasing. It is becoming difficult to meet these demands with the existing supply conditions....

The current global fleet is still dependent on conventional fuels as energy source to transport goods to various places in the world. These conventional fuels, such as MGO or HFO, emit large amounts of greenhouse gasses and other pollutant emissions. Regulation concerning these emissions becomes stricter every day, therefore institutions and...
