This research explores the frequent urban flooding problems typically experienced in South-East Asian cities. Heavy rainfall during the monsoon period in combination with rapid urbanisation in the past decades causes an increasing amount of inundation events in the case study area Hanoi. The damage caused by these floods results in major...

COVID-19 has had a great impact worldwide. One of its many effects was that offices had to be closed, which negatively affects the economy and people’s mental health. It is important that a safe way to keep offices open is found. Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs) are an important way to do this. However, to pick the right NPIs for one’s...

The combination of the high number and the consequences of falls in older adults led to the development of fall risk assessments; non-sensor-based and sensor-based. Multiple studies used ML for older adults' fall risk prediction using raw IMU data. This study's objective was to develop a DL algorithm that predicts the fall risk of people living...

Coastal and offshore infrastructure must be designed to withstand extreme wave-induced loading conditions. Extreme Value Analysis (EVA) is often employed to infer probabilistic distributions that provide information about extreme design conditions. In traditional practices, EVA is performed under the assumption of stationarity. This means that...

Quantum computing presents a threat to the current cryptographic standards in place, supporting our digital scoiety. As our lives are increasingly dependent on electronic transactions, our society becomes increasingly vulnerable to distortions of digital trust. By taking a design science research approach, this thesis designs a risk assessment...

Some infectious diseases, including COVID-19, can undergo airborne transmission. This may happen at close proximity, but as time indoors increases, infections can occur in shared room air despite distancing. We propose two indicators of infection risk for this situation, that is, relative risk parameter (Hr) and risk parameter (H). They combine...

Accidents induced by natural disasters at sports sites may cause catastrophic loss of great concern. However, previous studies on risk assessments of sports sites have only focused on operational risk and equipment failure. With the frequent occurrence of extreme disasters, the risk of domino chains caused by natural disasters at large-scale...

Structural safety and environmental sustainability are major factors in investment decisions for building systems, but are rarely considered simultaneously. Recent research efforts have redressed this by developing assessment methodologies and technical solutions for integrated energy efficiency and seismic performance. These studies are...

Toxic gas leakage represents a type of major process accident scenario threatening human life. Technical and non-technical safety barriers are employed to prevent toxic gas leakage accidents or mitigate the possible catastrophic consequences. Evacuation must be executed in severe toxic gas release scenarios. The performance assessment of...

Road traffic safety has attracted increasing research attention, in particular in the current transition from human-driven vehicles to autonomous vehicles. Surrogate measures of safety are widely used to assess traffic safety but they typically ignore motion uncertainties and are inflexible in dealing with two-dimensional motion. Meanwhile,...

Norovirus infections are among the major causes of acute gastroenteritis worldwide. In Germany, norovirus infections are the most frequently reported cause of gastroenteritis, although only laboratory confirmed cases are officially counted. The high infectivity and environmental persistence of norovirus, makes the virus a relevant pathogen...

In some steep valleys, flood-induced changes in river bed elevation pose significantly greater risks to infrastructure than floodwaters alone. Over the short term, the river may aggrade or degrade by several meters during a single flood. Whereas floodwaters recede after each event, moreover, riverbed changes add up over successive floods. To...

Bio-composite materials made from resources recovered from the water cycle are the future of the holistic approach towards sustainable wastewater treatment. The raw ingredients for these materials are coming from contaminated sources such as wastewater resources, water plants from surface water etc.. Thus, different risks like human health,...

Over the past decade, the number of cyber attack incidents targeting critical infrastructures such as the electrical power system has increased. To assess the risk of cyber attacks on the cyber-physical system, a holistic approach is needed that considers both system layers. However, the existing risk assessment methods are either qualitative in...

Flood prone areas are often protected against flooding by an extensive network of flood defenses. To ensure their structural integrity, these flood defenses are periodically assessed. Many levees have been functioning well for decades, and have survived several relatively high hydraulic loads within their lifetime. However, information on...

UAS-based commercial services such as urban parcel delivery are expected to grow in the upcoming years and may lead to a large volume of UAS operations in urban areas. These flights may pose safety risks to persons and property on the ground, which are referred to as third-party risks. Path-planning methods have been developed to generate a...

Like any other flying system, Kitepower poses risks to third-parties on the ground. Therefore, in this thesis a safety risk assessment is performed for the system of Kitepower. The research question of this thesis is: Which third-party risks are posed by Kitepower operations and how high are these? Kitepower uses a kite attached to a fixed...

Ngo, Q.H. (author)
Flooding is one of the most frequently occurring and damaging natural disasters worldwide. Quantitative flood risk management (FRM) in the modern context demands statistically robust approaches (e.g. probabilistic) due to the need to deal with complex uncertainties. However, probabilistic estimates often involve ensemble 2D hydraulic model runs...

Power grids rely on Operational Technology (OT) networks, for real-time monitoring and control. These traditionally segregated systems are now being integrated with general-purpose Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). The coupling of the physical power system and its communications infrastructure forms a complex, interdependent...
