Besides global warming, climate change is expected to result in (among others) an increased number of extreme precipitation events and a rising sea level. In the future, this can be the cause for an increased number of high river discharge events in combination with high water levels on the North Sea, which goes hand in hand with an increased...

The constant manipulation of the Dutch delta system and the resulting creation of hard borders between the natural river landscape, the harbor and the city has led to a destabilized delta system(Hein, 2021; Meyer et al., 2015). The spatial and ecological challenges resulting from population growth and the resulting urban growth, as well as...

"Brussels was never destroyed by the wars, but rather by its own people" these words of Victor Bourgouis show the destructive vision of social and cultural spaces in Brussels. The city's vision of urban development is based on top-down politics, fed by the desire to be modern. This affection leads to the non-identification and displacement of...

Redesigning from the permanent, in which the people using the building need to be more adaptable instead of designing a flexible building was the starting point for this graduation project. Therefore the following research question has been formulated: How could the space plan of a monument like the Koudenhorn be redesigned to accommodate...

Nowadays, the high demand for road transportation often reaches a point where it exceeds the capacity of freeway traffic networks, resulting in congestion. Freeway traffic congestion is a major social problem, as it is the reason for increased time delays, higher accident risk and environmental pollution. There is, therefore, the need for a...

There is an increased desire for miniature ultrasound probes with small apertures to provide volumetric images at high frame rates for in-body applications. Satisfying these increased requirements makes simultaneous achievement of a good lateral resolution a challenge. As micro-beamforming is often employed to reduce data rate and cable count...

There is an urgent need in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) to enhance irrigation access to meet the challenges of growing population and climate risk. To achieve this, big investments are currently planned in large irrigation infrastructure. We believe there is danger in following this conventional approach, which requires big lumpsum investments,...

Currently, with the development of driving technologies, driverless vehicles gradually are becoming more and more available. Therefore, there would be a long period of time during which self-driving vehicles and human-driven vehicles coexist. However, for a mixed platoon, it is hard to control the formation due to the existence of the manual...

This paper explores the possibilities of providing fast frequency support as an emergency support service to the disturbed AC system through the MTDC grid. A two-layer hierarchical control structure of the MTDC grid is proposed to assure the minimum cost of the frequency control actions, the minimum voltage deviations, or the minimal impact...

Researchers and policymakers have long called for a collaborative governance process for climate adaptation and flood resilience. However, this is usually challenging when urban planning is supposed to be integrated with water management. Using the Chinese city of Guangzhou as a case study, this study explores the long-term disadvantaged...

Microbial metabolism is strongly dependent on the environmental conditions. While these can be well controlled under laboratory conditions, large-scale bioreactors are characterized by inhomogeneities and consequently dynamic conditions for the organisms. How Saccharomyces cerevisiae response to frequent perturbations in industrial...

On the 13th and 14th of July 2021 a cold pit caused extreme precipitation along with record discharges in tributaries of the Meuse. These discharges caused floods in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.<br/><br/>Extreme precipitation occurrence and its intensity are expected to increase in the area due to climate change, increasing flood risk....

High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy is widely used for investigating biological architectures and the semiconductor industry. The main limitation comes from parachuting or the Wile E. Coyote effect. Parachuting is the phenomenon where the cantilever taps on the sample towards a steep decrease in height, but does not get adjusted for this decrease...

In recent years, cars are increasingly computerized, where the handling of the vehicle can be changed to accommodate individual needs. One specific feature in current vehicles that can alter the vehicle’s dynamic behavior are driving modes: predetermined vehicle settings that drivers can select by the press of a button. Unfortunately, user...

In a dynamic or disruptive situation, such as disasters, a fully mobile and decentralized infrastructure-less network seems to be a viable option for communication. Citizens are confronted with challenges such as complicated deployment of these networks, resource-constrained mobile phones and mobility. This requires communication networks to...
