Ever increasing traffic load on freeways calls for smart solutions to improve throughput. With the uprise and standardization of C-ITS, accuracy and latency of traffic state measurements are immensely improved, while the span of control is increased. In this paper, a traffic control algorithm that aims to prevent breakdown at recurring...

Deep-water siliciclastic systems are of great societal relevance as their deposits<br/>in subsurface store hundreds of billions of barrels of hydrocarbons in different sedimentary basins worldwide. The sediment density flows that form these systems, termed turbidity currents, are capable of destroying subsea installations, such as...

<br/>To date, many fire accidents have occurred in tunnels all over the world. In the worst cases, there were catastrophic consequences with numerous human casualties and significant economic impacts. In the occurrence of such tunnel fires, besides the primary concern of saving human life, ensuring a certain level of structural integrity is also...

The size of container ships is constantly growing over recent decades due to a continuous search for economies of scale by shipping lines. The growth of the container ships has necessitated ports to adapt, e.g. by increasing the water depth requirements. Many of the conventional onshore ports cannot receive larger ships without dredging...

In order to reduce congestion numbers on the highways, ramp metering can be used. The currently existing ramp metering control strategies are of a macroscopic nature. This means that the average occupancy on the main lane or average flow values on the main lane determine the temporarily fixed cycle times for the traffic light located near the on...

Although a transition to more sustainable energy production is necessary, fossil fuels will remain a crucial contributor to the world's energy production in the near future. In numerically maximizing the production of these fuels, as well as in many other optimization problems, an objective function has to be optimized on the basis of an input...

The energy mix of the future is likely to feature hydrogen due to its versatility. For effective use in energy storage, hydrogen has to be compressed. Conventional electrolysis of water and subsequent mechanical compression of hydrogen is an energy intensive process. A one-step conversion and compression can take place in a Electrochemical...

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has become an indispensable tool in research and engineering. Even though the performance of computers is increasing at unfathomable speeds, the calculation of many fluid problems remains to be challenging. With the emerging widespread use of Large Eddy Simulation (LES), the computational cost of simulations...

The gap between CPU and memory performance becomes increasingly larger. Together with a growing memory pressure caused by higher CPU core counts combined with multi-tenant systems, this causes the need for new memory technologies. Recently, various technologies are becoming available for commercial use. Examples of these technologies are memory...

The flight planning process is an extensive and long process to direct and maintain a high level of operations within the airspace. As air traffic demand grows year after year, it's worthwhile to optimise the European air traffic system further. One way of optimising the system, is by creating optimal flight schedules that solve for demand...

The energy transition is advancing rapidly, and the Dutch electricity grid is changing with it. Increasing shares of variable renewable energy sources create mismatches between electricity supply and demand. These mismatches create a need for large-scale energy storage. Existing large-scale energy storage technologies are pumped hydro energy...

Stable boundary layers (SBLs) are a common aspect of the earth’s atmosphere and are characterized by a stable density stratification in which the temperature increases with height. This typically occurs during the night, resulting in a short-lived stable boundary layer, or persistently throughout the polar winter, resulting in a longlived stable...
