This study investigates the provenance of the continental and marine Late Barremian clastics of the Bouzergoun Formation, exposed in the Essaouira-Agadir Basin (EAB). Thin section petrography, Scanning Electron Micrography, heavy minerals analysis, and detrital zircon dating were conducted and integrated with a large dataset of published Low...

The Kerrouchen Basin is an understudied rift basin in the Middle Atlas of Morocco, where over 600 m of Triassic stratigraphy is well exposed. It was partially inverted during the Atlasic orogeny whilst preserving the original basin geometry. Within the Kerrouchen Basin, two distinct fluvial systems are present. The first, recorded by the K3...

X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) and X-ray micro computed tomography (μ-CT) were applied to the study of four archaeological glass objects from the collection of the Allard Pierson in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Often, little is known about the provenience and provenance of archaeological glass objects, as documentation is regularly...

In levee system reliability, the length effect is the term given to the phenomenon that the longer the levee, the higher the probability that it will have a weak spot and fail. Quantitatively, it is the ratio of the segment failure probability to the cross-sectional failure probability. The literature is lacking in methods to calculate the...

This research characterizes and reconstructs clay procurement and production practices through the integration of in-situ portable XRF and petrographic analysis on ancient ceramics and clay materials recovered from the Mayales river subbasin (central Nicaragua). A particular choice for this study was the largest and arguably most significant...

The assessment of service-proven quay walls subject to corrosion-induced degradation is inherently a time-dependent reliability problem. Two major challenges are the modelling of corrosion and taking into account the decrease of epistemic uncertainty throughout the quay wall's service life. The main objective of this study is to examine the...

LightGuider is a novel guidance-based approach to interactive lighting design, which typically consists of interleaved 3D modeling operations and light transport simulations. Rather than having designers use a trial-And-error approach to match their illumination constraints and aesthetic goals, LightGuider supports the process by simulating...

A collection of Prime Cultural Heritage artefacts consisting of Egyptian late Middle Kingdom figurines (c. 1850–1700 BCE), made of unfired clay and covered in inscriptions, is kept at the Royal Museums of Art and History (RMAH) in Brussels, Belgium. Several of these hieratic inscriptions curse enemies of the Egyptian state, including...

Analytical ceramic studies offer the opportunity to determine cultural development and change on the basis of origin and use of raw materials. In this particular study, an archaeometric approach on ceramics in central Pisidia contributes to the discussion of contact and exchange between indigenous communities and several cultural spheres of...

Aegyptiaca-like Domitian’s obelisk is now decorating Bernini’s fountain on Piazza Navona or the Egyptian lions flanking Michelangelo’s stairs towards the Capitol figure prominently amidst Rome’s cultural heritage. Motivations for the import, contextualization, and copying of these objects during the Imperial Roman period are as heavily debated...

It is challenging to design and develop a cadastral system that supports digital cadastre, 3D and provenance. Digital cadastre encodes cadastral information in digital format like LandXML, which allows for automation and returns high productivity. 3D enables capturing and representing the third dimension, which is critical for the development in...

Persons spend on average one third of their life asleep. Getting enough sleep has a major impact on how a person looks, feels and functions on a daily basis. However, over the past century, there has been a consistent rapid decrease in sleep quality and an increase of sleep complaints among children, adolescents and the middle-aged population....

The Hollandsche IJssel is a river between Rotterdam and Gouda and is protected from the main river system in the Netherlands by a storm surge barrier. The Hollandsche IJssel experiences several problems: the storm surge barrier dates from 1958 and has a relatively low closure reliability; three quarters of the dikes have been rejected according...

New vertical steel storage tanks founded on a shallow foundation of a crushed rock ring are planned at the same location of former storage tanks. The dimensions, loads and foundation of the new tanks are identical to the old tanks which were erected 40 years ago and demolished a few years ago. Despite the fact that the new tanks are identical to...

In clastic rock, the interpretation of facies from the spectral gamma-ray log should be applied with caution because a consistent relationship with gamma-ray is lacking due to variations in provenance and/or diagenesis. In this thesis the use of the gamma-ray log for the derivation of source rock characteristics and/or diagenesis is examined....

Self-learning controllers offer various strong benefits over conventional controllers, the most important one being their ability to adapt to unexpected circumstances. Their application is however limited, the most important reason being that, for self-learning controllers to work on continuous domains, nonlinear function approximators are...

Textural variations in sediment are considered to be one of the primary controls on the geochemical composition. This relation has been widely exploited for the climatological interpretation of unconsolidated Quartenary sediment cores. Despite the common objectives in respectively unconsolidated and consolidated sedimentological studies, for the...
