In the field of Adaptive Optics (AO) a new development has been introduced recently: the Wavefront Sensorless Adaptive Optics (WFSless AO) approach, which only uses camera measurements to optimize image quality and does not use a Shack-Hartman (SH) Wavefront Sensor (WFS) [Booth, 2006, Débarre et al., 2009, Hinnen et al., 2008]. In order to...

Kinetic responsive systems are gaining attention in architectural applications, to help reduce the building’s energy consumption and environmental impact, while improving the indoor comfort conditions. The thesis explores the potentials of Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs) for the design of autoreactive facade systems without using additional energy....

For millennia, humanity has been plagued by pathogenic bacteria. Until the advent of antibiotic treatments, seemingly harmless bacterial infections could have fatal consequences. However, in the microcosm that these single celled organisms inhabit, the line between being the invader or being invaded is a thin line. Bacteria and archaea are con...

Urban climate adaptation is generally attained --- in a hydrological perspective -- by implementing stormwater management techniques, such as grey, blue and green adaptation measures. Implementing such multi-functional adaptation measures touches on the interests of many stakeholders who need to work together to find resilient and suiting...

Currently, trained machine learning models are readily available, but their training data might not be (for example due to privacy reasons). This thesis investigates how pre-trained models can be combined for performance on all their source domains, without access to data. This problem is formulated as a Multiple-Source Domain Adaptation (MSA)...

Drought and subsidence are two out of several water-related urban climate adaptation challenges many cities in the Netherlands currently face. Drought is expected to increase in frequency and extent due to climate change. Therefore, drought is likely to further pressurize (subsiding) urban areas in the coming decades. Although the impact of...

Conventional steering systems in passenger vehicles have a mechanically fixed steering ratio. The steering sensitivity, defined as the amount of vehicle response to the driver's steering wheel input, remains fixed with changing road environments. Research has shown that driving comfort and safety can be improved when the vehicle's steering...

The conventional fabrication process of prosthetic sockets is known for being labor-intensive and time-consuming. It takes the user to wait 2-5 weeks to receive the prosthetic socket. In addition, most of the conventional sockets have fixed volumes that do not consider the volume fluctuations that the user experience daily because of muscle...

Understanding the perceived stimuli and barriers by private homeowners is key knowledge to realise effective climate adaptive policy and consequently the adoption of SSCAM by homeowners. Q-methodology was used to unravel the perspectives of 25 homeowners from the Vruchtenbuurt, Den Haag and Hillegersberg-Zuid, Rotterdam on climate adaptation....

This study proposes an LCA system that provides haptic guidance during lane changes. This system is fully integrated with LKA functionality to provide continuous lateral support during highway driving. Two different system configurations of this LCA are investigated. One is a generalized LCA that provides lane change reference trajectories based...

Buildings influence the environment due to the emission of greenhouse gases, energy use, water consumption, and waste generation. The load-bearing structures of buildings also have a significant share in these emissions. Currently, European and national regulations oblige to focus on sustainability in designs as well. In this research, it is...

In 2011, Adaptive Delta Management (ADM) was introduced in the Dutch Delta Program as a policy development method to incorporate uncertainty in decision making transparently. Currently, little is known over the functioning of ADM in practice, while this is determining its success. The study explores the application of ADM in Dutch practice....

Urban climate adaptation currently focusses mainly on hazards but often ignores opportunities which arise in both space and time. Opportunistic Adaptation provides a rationalized approach to mainstream measures for climate adaptation into urban renewal cycles. Adaptation opportunities are identified by projecting the lifespans of urban assets...

The concept of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) services was created mainly in response to traffic congestions. In this research we focus on UAM services such as those provided by Uber Elevate. We therefore present a framework to solve the Urban Air Mobility Problem with Time Windows (UAMP-TW) under dynamic demand, using an Adaptive Large Neighborhood...

Katoenveem is a former cotton warehouse in the Merwe-Vierhavens area of Rotterdam. As a harbour heritage site it has a high cultural and historical value due to its unique past function and the systems that were installed for the transshipment of cotton, but also for the innovative construction method that was used and the resulting overall...

The changing climate pressures the resilience of cities and nature all over the world, putting the position of historically valuable urban and natural environments at risk. The province of South-Holland has economically evolved around the unique triple delta landscape. In order to keep its economically competitive position and take environmental...

This thesis explores alternative spatial- and governance responses to deal with climate-induced migration as a result of slow-onset climate change in the southern California border region with Mexico. These responses will be specifically aimed to mitigate and adapt to a future that may see displacement as a result of changing environmental...

Gait impairments negatively affect patients’ walking ability, without which they tend to suffer from a higher risk of falling and a lower quality of life. Repetitious training is necessary for patients to regain and maintain this ability. Compared with the conventional rehabilitation process, gamified rehabilitation has the potential to provide...

Ground based telescope imaging suffers from interference from the earth’s atmosphere. Fluctuations in the refractive index of the air delay incoming light randomly, resulting in blurred images. A deconvolution from wavefront sensing system is an adaptive optics system that measures the modes in which the light is corrupted (i.e. the wavefront)...
