Underwater slope failure is a common problem in the fields of geotechnical, dredging and hydraulic engineering, posing a major risk to submerged infrastructure and flood defences along coasts, rivers, and lakes. The term ‘flow slide’ refers to a specific, complex failure mechanism of underwater slopes, which occurs when a substantial amount of...

The rise of e-commerce makes shopping easier than ever. It also puts pressure on logistic service providers, their employees, traffic and the environment. Parcel deliveries to service points or parcel lockers could release some of this pressure. However, service points are only scarcely used by Dutch consumers, while parcel lockers still lack a...

Automated vehicles have the potential to create a future in which most cars are shared instead of being individually owned and used. The advantages of vehicle sharing are expected to be multiple: reduced traffic, freed-up parking space, safer trips and a lower environmental impact of traveling. The dial-a-ride problem with transfers (DARP-T)...

This paper starts with surveying the state-of-the-art knowledge of breaching flow slides, with an emphasis on the relevant fluid mechanics. The governing physical processes of breaching flow slides are explained. The paper highlights the important roles of the associated turbidity current and the frequent surficial slides in increasing the...

When soil surfaces are exposed to high shear stresses induced by high-velocity water flows, they erode. Erosion consists of the detachment, entrainment and transport of soil particles. When exposed to high shear stresses the process of soil detachment is no longer given by the pick-up of individual particles but by the continuous shear failure...

This Ph.D. dissertation describes the theory and realization of wide-bandwidth magnetic sensors for current measurements which breach the conventional offset and noise constraints in CMOS processes. These are achieved by several circuit-level and system-level innovations, including the use of three orthogonal ripple reduction loops (RRLs) in...

This paper presents a new concept for partial discharge measurements in gas insulated systems (GIS). The proposed technique uses a novel GIS magnetic antenna that measures the magnetic field produced by partial discharges (PD) propagating in GIS. The foundations of the measurement technique and the magnetic antenna design are presented...

Machine learning techniques aim to train a model in such a way that it can approximate complex dynamics like the vehicle routing problem. In the recent years, combinatorial neural networks and deep learning methods have been used to predict the solution of routing problems. However, the approaches investigated so far in literature could be...

The air cargo market is experiencing momentous developments that may impact strongly on future trends. A consolidation shift has been observed, by more integration of the supply chain. Integrators engage in forwarding, forwarding agents operate their own aircraft and airlines bypass the forwarding agents, by striking direct structural deals with...

The safety level of a dike is expressed in terms of risk. Risk is defined as the product of the probability of inundation of a polder (after failure of a dike) and the expected damage (casualties, economic damage and damage to the infrastructure) caused by inundation. The rate of inundation determines the amount of casualties and depends heavily...

In the realm of human urban transportation, many recent studies have shown that comparatively smaller fleets of shared autonomous vehicles (SAVs) are able to provide efficient door-to-door transportation services for city dwellers. However, because of the steady growth of e-commerce and same-day delivery services, new city logistics...

This paper presents a temperature-insensitive magnetic sensor system for contactless current measurements. To simultaneously achieve wide bandwidth and low noise, the proposed system employs a multi-path structure with a set of spinning current Hall sensors in its low-frequency path and a set of pick-up coils in its high-frequency path. The...

The transfer of energy between systems that are not connected by physical contact between them can be accomplished by wireless power transfer methods, through electromagnetic field or radiation between a primary-transmitter and a secondary-receiver section. In the particular field of e-mobility, inductive power transfer systems have been...

Experiments studying the behavior of agent based methods over varying levels of uncertainty in comparison to traditional optimization methods are generally absent from the literature. In this paper we apply two structurally distinct solution approaches, an on-line optimization and an agent based approach, to a drayage problem with time windows...
