Passenger punctuality is one of the most important measures to indicate and improve the service reliability of public transport operators. Previously, passenger punctuality measurements were mainly based on passenger counts in combination with vehicle locations. With the growing use of Automatic Fare Collection systems, passenger punctuality...

Within the past half century, Integrated Circuits (ICs) experienced an aggressive, performance driven, technology feature size scaling. As the technology scaled into the deep nanometer range, physical and quantum mechanical effects that were previously irrelevant become influential, or even dominant, resulting in, e.g., not any longer negligible...

Design codes and standards rely on generalised target reliability indices. It is unclear, however, whether these indices are applicable to the specific risk-profile of marine structures. In this study, target reliability indices for quay walls were derived from various risk acceptance criteria, such as economic optimisation, individual risk ...

In this thesis, an image-based method is proposed for solving the relative translation errors of 3D point clouds collected by Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS) techniques. The process of matching 3D point clouds is known as registration. Due to environment-depending limitations of the positioning component of MLS systems, when recording a certain...

Before the Spanish conquest of Mexico, around the year 1519, the Valley of Mexico was a closed basin. As a result, at the bottom of the valley, an extensive system of shallow lakes, lagoons, and swamps was formed due to precipitation and permanent river’s discharge from the Sierra Nevada mountains. This lacustrine system occupied around 1000km2...

This report proposes an approach to implement improved Fault Tolerant (FT) control in a modular Open Winding (OW) Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine (PMSM) drive system. The report also proposes a reliability assessment on FT converter topologies and the effect of layering redundancy. An existing lab setup is used as a case study to create a...

Asset degradation and maintenance strategies are driving factors that cause the variation in life cycle cost (LCC) of infrastructure assets. In the railway industry, several researchers have analyzed the impact of the uncertainty on LCC, but the emphasis was laid on traditional ballasted tracks. Another type of track structure, embedded rail...

One of the most severe deteriorations in reinforced concrete structures is associated with reinforcement corrosion, where the corrosion distribution shows considerable spatial variability. In the existing investigations of spatial variability of corrosion on the reliability of reinforced concrete structures, symbolic expressions are used for the...

In the field of Information Retrieval (IR), test collections are an important part of IR system evaluation. When evaluating IR systems on a test collection, the results may not accurately represent the performance of the systems on topics not contained in that test collection. Therefore, we want to get a sense of the accuracy of results on a...

In this work, the study of the time-dependent behaviour of lithium carbonate based inhibitor technology for the active corrosion protection of aluminium alloy 2024-T3 is presented. Odd random phase electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (ORP-EIS) is selected as the electrochemical tool to study the corrosion protective properties of a model...

Complementary Metallic Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) technology scaling enhances the performance, transistor density, functionality, and reduces cost and power consumption. However, scaling causes significant reliability challenges both from a manufacturing and operational point of view. Obtaining reliable memories require accurate understanding of...

We consider the problem of dispatching a fleet of distributed energy reserve devices to collectively meet a sequence of power requests over time. Under the restriction that reserves cannot be replenished, we aim to maximise the survival time of an energy-constrained islanded electrical system; and we discuss realistic scenarios in which this...

This thesis research focusses on the development of a reliable and efficient 3D calculation model of an existing high-rise, reinforced concrete building in the Groningen area, in order to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the existing and subsequently retrofitted main bearing structure of this high-rise building. The assessment of the existing...

Railway transportation provides sustainable, fast and safe transport. Its attractiveness is linked to a broad concept of service reliability: the capability to adhere to a timetable in the presence of delays perturbing traffic. To counter these phenomena, real-time rescheduling can be used, changing train orders and times, according to rules...

Reinforcement measures are applied by water boards during critical conditions in an ultimate attempt to prevent flooding. However, the effect of these measures on the reduction in flood risk or failure probability of the flood defence is often unknown. This research focusses on the effectiveness of grass revetment reinforcement measures applied...

In order to perform a reassessment of existing structures or design new structures in a more efficient and economical way non-linear finite element (NLFE) models are used to take into account all non-linear behavior in reinforced concrete structures. The Model Code 2010 (fib, 2012) suggest several safety formats to perform non-linear finite...

This article highlights recent developments in flood risk management in the Netherlands and presents approaches for reliability analysis and asset management for flood defences and hydraulic infrastructure. The functioning of this infrastructure is of great importance for the country as large parts of it are prone to flooding. Based on a...

Mercurius Shipping Group invested in two container-crane vessels which are able to load and unload cargo to and from its holds. Due to their unique feature, the crane, failure of the vessels results in large financial consequences. Previous experience showed that these costs could be mitigated with easily/timely available spare-parts. The main...
