This paper primarily employs Item Response Theory (IRT) to estimate item characteristics and the proficiency levels of students as reflected in the exam results. The process includes the application of algorithms for item characteristic parameter estimation and the utilization of statistical techniques for item selection from an item pool....

In today's world, extreme flooding and drought events are becoming increasingly common globally. These challenges arise from various factors, with climate change and changes in land use being among the most significant contributors.<br/><br/>While numerous studies have explored the combined impact of climate change and land use on streamflow,...

Floods are the most frequent natural disaster and due to climate change the frequency and intensity of these events are increasing. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important to obtain accurate estimations of extreme discharges. Statistical modelling is widely used to estimate extreme discharges by fitting observed extreme discharges to an...

Sewage systems hold a critical function within the fabric of urban infrastructure, primarily by ensuring efficient wastewater management. Within this network, sewage pumping stations emerge as important components. The performance of such stations is susceptible to being undermined by system failures and malfunctions, which can cause significant...

An approach based on wastewater epidemiology can be used to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic by assessing the gene copy number of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater. In the present study, we statistically analyzed such data from six inlets of three wastewater treatment plants, covering six regions of Stockholm, Sweden, collected over an approximate year...

This paper presents a radar-based algorithm for autonomous estimation of drone intention. The algorithm is based on radar's kinematic measurements, providing fast and robust intention estimation for multiple targets. The core idea of the proposed algorithm is to build intention-specific features for each intention in advance and use them in...

The Netherlands is a northwestern European country. The location makes the Netherlands an important entry for trade to the European continent resulting in high traffic intensities [1]. The Netherlands has one of the densest road networks in the world, having over 139.000km of roadways [2, 3]. The understanding of the link between the functional...

This paper intends to assess the effect of different parameters on traffic congestion around universities. On the basis of the model outputs, it is possible to propose economic countermeasures for reducing traffic congestion, especially in developing countries. Structural equation modelling was used to assess the relevance between...

Understanding the behaviour of unreinforced masonry (URM) structures requires in-depth insight into the mechanical properties of its constituents and their interaction under compression, tension, and shear loading. As a result, a complete picture of masonry characteristics, accounting for its full nonlinear response and its statistical...

Climate change causes cities to deal with increased temperatures and more frequent weather extremes. Heat waves will occur more often, becoming a more prevalent issue in especially urban areas. The quantification of heat stress is a first step to define mitigation measures. For that purpose, a standardised method to assess the spatial influence...

The advent of autonomous ships that are unmanned or low-manned will reduce the number of people at risk at sea. Even when autonomous navigation does not reduce the number of accidents, this means that safety at sea will increase. In fact, increased safety is one of the primary perceived drivers for autonomous shipping, although this safety...

Reverse osmosis (RO) is the most promising membrane technology in organic micropollutants (MPs) removal of drinking water treatment. For 78 MPs, passage and removal were evaluated with an ESPA3 RO membrane and the robustness of RO against MPs was studied. The MPs were classified according to their charge and hydrophobicity. The results showed...

In this study, a novel non-toxic, biodegradable bacteria-based healing agent known as alkanoate derivatives (AKD) derived from wastewater was investigated for its self-healing efficiency of the mortar specimens in comparison to the already-developed healing agents made of lactic acid derivatives (PLA). Mortar with different percentages of...

Soil spatial variability has a significant impact on the reliability of geotechnical structures. In particular, the horizontal variability is important for linear infrastructure, which has only limited vertical height and width, but extensive length. Due to depositional and geological processes, the variability is often substantially...

Homogeneous hydrogenation catalysts based on metal complexes provide a diverse and highly tunable tool for the fine chemical industry. To fully unleash their potential, fast and effective methods for the evaluation of catalytic properties are needed. In turn, this requires changes in the experimental approaches to test and evaluate the...

<b>Introduction:</b> Carotid atherosclerosis is characterized by the build-up of the so-called plaque tissue in the wall of the carotid artery. The rupture of carotid plaques can lead to acute manifestations, including ischemic stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA). The mechanism responsible for rupture is not yet unravelled, complicating...

In a globalized world, the rapid development in digital technologies and finance has enabled the successful growth of Airbnb around the world. The basic idea behind this growth is to take advantage of the underused assets —houses, apartments, or rooms and to profit from them. The spectacular growth in main cities has caused the social fabric of...

This thesis utilises the random finite element method (RFEM) to provide practical guidance and tools for geotechnical engineers to account for the influence of soil spatial variability. This has involved: (a) practical insight and guidance on the choice of characteristic soil property values and scales of fluctuation; (b) a robust approach to...
