Current state-of-the-art airline planning models are required to decrease models either in size or complexity due to computational limitations, limiting the <br/>operational applicability to problems of representative sizes. Models return suboptimal solutions, especially when confronted with factors of uncertainty. Considering the growing...

To date, the field of research on hydrogen pipeline network integration is majorly limited to techno-economic supply chain optimizations and to socio-technical analyses on just the hydrogen transition in general. This article addresses this restricted view by exploring development of the pipeline network as part of the hydrogen value chain from...

A recent advancement in Reinforcement Learning is the capability of modelling opponents. In this work, we are interested in going back to basics and testing this capability within the Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma, a simple method for modelling multi agent systems. Using the self modelling advantage actor critic model, we set up a single agent...

This project deals with the past, present, and future theatricality of the Bay of Gibraltar, in relation to the settlements around its edge – Gibraltar, La Linea, Algeciras – and across the strait to Morocco. These landscapes are read as both backdrop and auditorium; the ports are re-contextualised as the wings and aisles, and the Bay is the...

Renewable energy investment is a complex process where multiple actors are often involved with their own, sometimes conflicting, interests. Here we propose a multi-actor multi-objective regional energy system planning approach to help actors gain mutual understanding regarding each other’s optimal investment wishes, in order to advance the...

Message passing is a useful abstraction to implement concurrent programs. For real-world systems, however, it is often combined with other programming and concurrency paradigms, such as higher-order functions, mutable state, shared-memory concurrency, and locks. We present Actris: a logic for proving functional correctness of programs that...

Social innovation is an important dimension of current transformations in energy systems. It can refer to alternative business models, novel policy instruments, financing schemes, participatory governance approaches to energy questions, or new discourses. Its significance for energy systems is often considered in narrow instrumentalist terms,...

Hydraulic engineering infrastructures, such as reservoirs, dikes, breakwaters, and inlet closures, have significantly impacted ecosystem functioning over the last two centuries. Currently, nature-based solutions are receiving increasing attention in hydraulic engineering projects and research programs. However, there is a lack of reflection...

The tools available to translate climate targets into abatement actions are mainly based on costs and technical feasibility. Options for greenhouse gas abatement span all sectors, all countries, and involve a huge variety of technologies. The reasons for abatement to be realized, or not, are diverse and complex. In particular, the political...

Circularity aims to reduce waste by closing and narrowing resource loops and by extending the lifetime of materials and products. As a consequence of this fundamentally different approach to construction practices, implementation entails a different organization of the building process. The purpose of this research is to make recommendations...

The world has been facing a detrimental climate change since the beginning of the industrial era due to anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are expected to increase exponentially whereas the energy sector is the largest pollutant. Households in the Netherlands are one of the dominant final end users of energy and a transition...

The increasing availability of data, computing power &amp; advances in the algorithms has really driven the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in recent years. However, many industries &amp; societies despite realizing the value of AI are still skeptical in accepting AI, especially when several controversial incidents have come into our...

Persuasive games have great properties for facilitating lasting attitude change for complex societal issues, making them a valuable tool for achieving attitude change towards cooperation and information sharing that is often necessary for effective multi-actor decision-making. It is assumed that persuasive game design principles are key drivers...

Today’s land grabs are a continuation of past imperialist desires, with a clear distinction that today’s capitalist domination is associated with the transnationalisation of the class structure and ignores the ethnicity and civility narratives of the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. This investigation will establish that the desire of the...

In the context of western linear resource culture, this work represents a socio-technical approach to circularity in the built environment. Object-oriented programming is explored as design method for collaborative domestic environments, in particular to promote circular cooking adapted to local socio-cultural practices.

Swapfiets’ product service system (PSS) offers bicycles as a service: customers pay a monthly fee to get a Swapfiets bicycle and whenever something is wrong with the bicycle, Swapfiets makes sure the bicycle is repaired or replaced with a working bicycle. <br/>Two of Swapfiets’ longer term challenges form the subjects of this research: 1) What...

In December 2017, the municipality of Amsterdam announced the development of a new city in its port: Haven-Stad. The plan comprises a redevelopment strategy to transform port lands towards a mixed use urban area with up to 70.000 dwellings. This announcement caused a conflict between port users and the city. This integration of various...

The purpose of this master thesis is to gather information from current practices and make recommendations to facilitate implementation of circularity in the building process. The past years, circularity has become a popular term in the built environment. This approach prefers a more circular way of perceiving the building process. Literature...

This article describes and analyzes the reintroduction of the “wide green dike” in the Netherlands. It is a noteworthy example of implementation of an innovation in long-term strategic delta planning. The Dutch Delta Program was central herein. Pursuing its ambition to make the Netherlands climate-proof, the Delta Program invited a diverse set...

Strategic delta planning focuses on strategic, long-term choices to stimulate sustainable development in deltas. Strategic delta plans outline a long-term vision to be embedded into the plans and activities of government agencies and semi-public actors at multiple levels. This implies a form of coordinated, yet decentralized, implementation....
