The exponential population growth of Navi Mumbai and the Global South results in urgency for housing, quality of life and resources. Maker Housing proposes through architectural design and spatial organization an alternative mode of living in these unique urban contexts. Gaothans is a Marathi word which is derived from the words ‘Gaon’ (which...

This thesis’ research concerns the time-dynamics of a complex geographical network of municipalities, i.e. the Dutch Municipality Network over the period 1830-2019. By analysing 190 years of socioeconomic statistical data and applying contemporary tooling from network science and geographic information systems (GIS), the findings from this...

Survival analysis is a statistical method used to predict when an event will occur. Machine learning survival models have been used in many cancer studies. However, machine learning models may not always be interpretable. The current lack of research for explainable survival analysis for urothelial cancer prompted this study. This study offers...

This thesis examines statistical methods to find the right timing of intrauterine insemination treatment relative to the start of the follow-up of the couples. Intrauterine insemination is a fertility treatment conducted by injecting refined sperm into a woman's uterus. Lots of research has been done on timing of steps within one IUI cycle....

The construction of a dike improvement often causes a decrease in reliability during construction. Raising a dike may give rise to excess pore water pressures in the subsoil, resulting in a temporal strength decrease. Observing the survival of such a loading condition might provide information on the strength of a dike. Therefore, this research...

During construction of a dike, slope stability often reaches critical levels, due to the excess pore water pressures in the foundation. The loading condition during construction has similarities with the design conditions during flood loading. Not only in terms of the pore water pressures as the main driving force, but also in terms of...

During storage and ripening of fermented foods, Lactococcus cremoris is predominantly in a non-growing state. L. cremoris can become stationary due to starvation or acidification, and its metabolism in these non-growing states affects the fermented product. Available studies on the response of L. cremoris to acid and starvation stress are...

An ideal road management system requires a real-time assessment of pavement performance. But there are many root causes of the status quo that the expectation and the system have not been achieved yet. One of them is the monitoring system. In the Netherlands, the measurement is carried out once a year because of the budget and also because it is...

In this study the interval censoring case 2 model combined with the Cox model is considered. The event-time distribution function is modeled nonparametrically. Two algorithms are proposed to estimate the event-time distribution function together with the Cox coefficients. Kernel smoothing is applied to the non-parametric MLE of the event-time...

Cardiovascular diseases are considered as one the deadliest disease and have also been the most prominent health burden around the world and particularly in the Netherlands. Enormously mitigation has been done to reduce the death burden, by improving the quality of health care services and research related to cardiovascular diseases. One...

Malicious software such as botnets are a threat to society and increasingly so through Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The large volume, pervasiveness and high vulnerability of IoT devices make them low hanging fruit for malicious actors. Currently, the biggest threat for insecure IoT devices is Mirai, a botnet which is deployed for DDoS...

Global and local aviation traffic is growing while economic and performance pressures on the industry are increasing. As a consequence, airlines try to maximise their fleet utilization. Airline operators and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) providers therefore require as much insight as possible in factors affecting component reliability...

We are nowadays constantly being confronted with images of conflicts. It is a reality that seems far away from us, until we are not called to confront it closely. Throughout this research, I questioned the role of landscape architects in post-war cities and how we can intervene in a scarred territory. Enhancing the survival landscape...

The gap between predicted brain age and chronological age could serve as biomarker for early-stage neurodegeneration and as potentially as a risk indicator for dementia. We assess the utility of this age gap as a risk biomarker for incident dementia in a general elderly population. The brain age is estimated from longitudinal brain magnetic...

Managing electrical distribution assets entails making the decision on how to proceed with an ageing asset. The three options that asset managers have are run to fail, perform maintenance or repairs and lastly to replace. This decision making process is becoming incrementally more important due to the threat of replacement waves. This a...

When a grounding incident occurs, the officer of the watch is usually unable to assess the severity of the damage. Most ships do have damage response procedures in place. In case of military ships these are well developed, where a well-trained crew, in the form of damage parties, is available to respond adequately. For non-navy ships, this is...

With the high and varying demands for network bandwidth, Elastic Optical Networks (EON), as a promising solution for future optical transport networks, have been getting increased attention due to its flexibility and efficiency. As a huge amount of data is transformed over these networks, even short failures will lead to major data loss. Network...

Our society is becoming more and more dependent on communication networks. Thus, network operators and designers need to properly prepare themselves against large-scale disasters that could take down a significant amount of networking hardware within a large area.<br/><br/>In this work, we consider the vulnerability of a network to disasters,...

Market liquidity conditions and rental growth are said to match along “hot” and “cold” market cycles over time. Substantial deviations from these phases explain either overrented or underrented expectations by landlords or an essential change in tenants’ housing demand. While the assessment of housing markets by central banks, governments,...
