Hydraulic transport pipelines are used in dredging, (wet) mining and deep sea mining. These pump-pipeline systems are typically designed using steady-state principles. However, recent cases have shown that steady-state design does not always guarantee stable pipelines. Transients like self-amplifying density waves have shown to be able to...

Port systems face numerous challenges, including limited storage capacity at terminal yards, congestion in road port access due to overwhelmed infrastructure, and inefficient inter-terminal transportation. Close dry ports, situated between 10-40 km from the port, offer a potential solution, but lack flexible and reliable transport connections...

Private cars are inefficient in terms of land allocation. Car-free neighbourhoods offer a solution to this inefficiency by enforcing less car-centric urban design, expensive parking fees, and prioritising more sustainable and space-efficient modes of transportation. Carsharing services emerge as an alternative to private car ownership by...

This thesis explores the impact of transport disadvantage on the unemployed's participation in out-of-home activities beyond the labor market. It delineates eight distinct groups primarily based on transport accessibility and car availability among the unemployed, assessing how these factors are shaped by socio-demographic characteristics and...

The transport sector needs to change to meet some of the global challenges we face: climate change, population growth and urbanisation. It needs to become more sustainable, which is why the Netherlands wants to introduce more high-quality bus systems. However, there are some barriers to implementing these systems.<br/><br/>In this thesis,...

The emission of CO2 is a significant contributor to global warming, with the mobility sector being a major source. The EU has set a goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, requiring substantial CO2 reduction efforts, particularly in densely populated regions like the Rhine-Delta (RDR). This region’s extensive mobility network, serving both...

In the face of accelerating urbanization and the consequent surge in housing demands, particularly in European capitals, Copenhagen is at the forefront of adopting innovative urban development strategies. One such strategy is the conceptualization and eventual realization of Lynetteholm, an artificial island designed to mitigate housing...

Dutch road transportation networks are increasingly facing challenges regarding congestion, safety and environmental pollution. These challenges are intensified by increased urbanization and a growing need for connectivity . In the past, the remedy to most of these challenges laid in expanding the physical infrastructure through new asphalt....

Dense suspension flows, both in the natural environment and industrial settings, are complex phenomena with significant implications. From rivers shaping landscapes to industrial processes involving slurry transport, these flows hold a prominent position in numerous sectors. This thesis delves into a specific facet of these intricate flows:...

At speeds roughly between five and ten thousand km/h, hypersonic aircraft offer the promise of an extremely fast means of transport. Growing concerns about climate warming, however, direct attention to sustainability. This thesis focuses on atmospheric composition and radiation changes by considering a range of individual hypersonic aircraft...

When considering air quality, notably in South America, it seems that we are falling behind more developed regions in exacerbating the issue. This shortfall serves not just as observation, but as a warning, as air quality problems here are rapidly escalating. Nevertheless, by examining how other countries have addressed similar issues, we can...

As one of the largest innovation hubs in the world, the Brainport Eindhoven region experiences significant economic and population growth. However, with this success comes a challenge: the transportation infrastructure is increasingly strained, with new housing developments and population growth escalating the transport demand. The economic...

The city of Rotterdam is globally recognized for its port and its international trading. The city is an important key player for the imports and exports of the European trading market. For this reason, many, small and large, companies have decided to establish their business in or just outside the city. These companies can not operate without...

A large part of condensed matter physics concerns itself with understanding the behaviour of electrons in solids and finding ways to control them. However, in mesoscopic systems (i.e., systems with nanometer to micrometre scale), the behaviour of electrons is difficult to predict through the Schrödinger equation. Instead, it is often more...

Travelling to work is one of the essential activities in individuals’ daily lives. However, commuters who depend on public transport often face significant challenges in accessing job opportunities, resulting in transport-related social exclusion risks. In recent years, shared mobility services have gained popularity as a solution, offering...

Global passenger air traffic has doubled in the 13 years prior to 2019, and is expected to double again over the next 20 years or so. Growing demand for aviation is met by a corresponding increase in jet fuel being burned by aircraft, releasing multiple pollutants into the atmosphere. Besides disturbing the Earth’s radiative balance, these...

Freight transport is a crucial component of our society and economy. However, achieving sustainability in this sector is complex, due to a lack of incentives among stakeholders. The heavy-duty road transport sector is struggling to meet European emission standards. To address this issue, a research study examined the impact of combining Battery...

Working as natural filter, well-designed vegetation schemes have been widely applied to improve the quality of water (Aiona, 2013; Stefanakis, 2015). Proper design, however, requires appropriate physics-based modelling of their filtering capacity. Several theoretical models predicting sediment transport in vegetated flow have been proposed:...
