Theory behind neighbourhood effects suggests that people’s spatial context potentially affects individual outcomes across multiple scales and geographies. We argue that neighbourhood effects research needs to break away from the ‘tyranny’ of neighbourhood and consider alternative ways to measure the wider sociospatial context of people, placing...

Quantum computers promise to be a revolutionary new technology. However, in order to realise this promise many hurdles must first be overcome. In this thesis we investigate two such hurdles: the presence of noise in quantum computers and limitations on the connectivity and control in large scale quantum computing architectures.In order to combat...

Environmental analysis should be performed early in the Research and Development (R&D) phases of new technologies to timely determine potential impact and, thereby, include prevention and minimization of unfavorable ecological impact into the innovation process. Here, we demonstrate the application of anticipatory Life Cycle Assessment ...

The extremely large telescopes that should see first light in coming years demand so-called adaptive optics systems to overcome the devastating effect of the atmospheric turbulence on the image quality. A sensor measures the incoming distortion of the light and is used for reshaping the latter using a deformable mirror. Processing the large...

Spatial and temporal rainfall variability play an important role in generation of pluvial flooding. In urban areas, this phenomenon has increased in the last decades, due in particular to an intensification of urbanization and imperviousness degree. In fact, population is growing and moving from rural areas to cities, which are becoming more and...

Cancer is a genetic disease. The activation, alteration or deactivation of cancer genes can stimulate undesirable cell-proliferation. Cancer genes can be subdivided into oncogenes and tumor suppressors. Oncogenes, such as growth factor receptors, are altered and/or overexpressed genes that are causally linked to tumorigenesis. Tumor suppressors,...

This paper addresses a travel time reliable signal control problem. Travel time distributional estimates are obtained from a stochastic microscopic traffic simulator. The estimates are embedded within a simulation-based optimization algorithm. Analytical approximations of the simulated metrics are combined with the simulated data in order to...

Up-to-date 3D building models are important for many applications. Airborne very high resolution (VHR) images often acquired annually give an opportunity to create an up-to-date 3D model. Building segmentation is often the first and utmost step. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) draw lots of attention in interpreting VHR images as they can...

Nanoindentation is usually used to investigate local elastic properties and hardness of materials. In this paper, the nanoindenter served as a loading tool to perform micro scale bending tests and measure the global response of micro-scale specimens. For testing, cement paste cantilever beams with a square cross-section of 300 μm × 300 μm were...

Short duration bores in the coastal zone are generated by wave breaking in shallow water and mild foreshore conditions. In storm weather situations and for sea level rise scenarios, these bores approach the dike and interact with previously overtopped or reflected bores. Combined laser scanner and video measurements were used to study the...

In this paper, we study the impact of the idle/dynamic power consumption ratio on the effectiveness of a multi-V <sub>dd</sub> /frequency manycore design. We propose a new tool called LVSiM (a Low-Power and Variation-Aware Manycore Simulator) to carry out the experiments. It is a novel manycore simulator targeted towards low-power...

The estimation of the coordinates of nodes their proximity (or distance) measurements, is a principal challenge in numerous fields. Conventionally, when localizing a static network of immobile nodes, non-linear dimensionality reduction techniques are applied on the measured distances to obtain the relative coordinates up to a rotation and...

Current processes that create Building Energy Performance Simulation (BEPS) models are time consuming and costly, primarily due to the extensive manual inputs required for model population. In particular, generation of geometric inputs for existing building models requires significant manual intervention due to the absence, or outdated nature of...

In 2017 the Dutch national standardization institute (NEN) released a new version of the National Annex to NEN-EN 1997-1 Eurocode 7, including revised reduced pile base factors. This has a significant impact on the dimensions of pile foundations. Consequently, in situ load tests were considered in the Port of Rotterdam. In this study, full-scale...

Crack propagation in polycrystalline specimens is studied by means of a generalized finite element method with linear elastic isotropic grains and cohesive grain boundaries. The corresponding mode-I intergranular cracks are characterized using a grain boundary brittleness criterion that depends on cohesive law parameters and average grain...

We consider noisy data transmission channels with unknown scaling and varying offset mismatch. Minimum Pearson distance detection is used in cooperation with a difference operator, which offers immunity to such mismatch. Pair-constrained codes are proposed for unambiguous decoding, where in each codeword certain adjacent symbol pairs must...

This paper reports a general overview of current research on analysis and control of the power grid with grid scale PV-based power generations as well as of various consequences of grid scale integration of PV generation units into the power systems. Moreover, the history of PV renewable growth, deregulation of power system and issues related...

Empirical and research evidence suggests that traffic-responsive signal control strategies are generally not as efficient in over-saturated traffic conditions characterized by queue spillbacks. Recent studies on (MFD/NFD) have identified a destabilizing gridlock process that arises in congested networks which precludes efficient operation. The...

The potential of using phase change materials (PCM) in cementitious materials to mitigate damage due to thermal loadings has been recently focus of intensive research. In the case of PCM with transition temperatures near to the freezing point of water, their potential to delay frost in a cementitious matrix has been largely investigated through...

Scaling problems are more frequently observed in hot water equipment fed with remineralised reverse osmosis permeate compared to hot water systems fed with conventionally purified water. These problems occur when permeate from reserve osmosis is remineralised to a hardness to meet the regulations. The effects of temperature, initial calcium...
