This paper presents a System of Systems Engineering approach to aircraft design. For this purpose, conventional design disciplines are coupled with Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation (ABMS) defining a unique optimization problem. The proposed methodology is applied to design seaplanes for an on-demand transportation system connecting the Greek...

Agent-based models (ABMs) are increasingly utilized in ecology and related fields, yet concerns persist regarding the lack of consideration for lessons learned from previous models. This study explores the potential of systematically conducted ABM reviews to contribute to cumulative science and theory development by synthesizing individual ABM...

In this study, we present a novel modeling framework that provides a stylized representation of coastal adaptation and migration dynamics under sea level rise (SLR). We develop an agent-based model that simulates household and government agents adapting to shoreline change and increasing coastal flood risk. This model is coupled to a gravity...

Future power systems, in which generation will come almost entirely from variable Renewable Energy Sources (vRES), will be characterized by weather-driven supply and flexible demand. In a simulation of the future Dutch power system, we analyze whether there are sufficient incentives for market-driven investors to provide a sufficient level of...

The volume of instant delivery has witnessed a significant growth in recent years. Given the involvement of numerous heterogeneous stakeholders, instant delivery operations are inherently characterized by dynamics and uncertainties. This study introduces two order dispatching strategies, namely task buffering and dynamic batching, as...

Value and moral change have increasingly become topics of interest in the philosophical literature. Several theoretical accounts have been proposed. These are usually based on certain theoretical and conceptual assumptions. Their strengths and weaknesses are often difficult to determine and compare because they are based on limited empirical...

The concept of deterrence, using fear of punishment to encourage compliant behavior, is widely discussed. However, deterrence often places an emphasis on the economic side of compliance while neglecting other possibly crucial factors, as is argued by the literature. Psychological factors, notably the personal norm and the social norm, often...

Rotterdam the Hague Airport (RTHA) is planning to implement a new self-service luggage check-in system which has a different concept of operations compared to the current self-service system for luggage check-in. To efficiently develop, evaluate and implement this new system, a simulation optimization model is required to test different system...

Transshipment is a key component of modern-day shipping logistics. Container supply chains rely on transhipment hubs to access remote locations. With globalisation driving growth in container trade, maritime congestion is rising at container terminals in ports worldwide. This is expected to worsen as demand continues to grow. The ill effects of...

In this thesis, wealth distribution in a closed economic system is examined by studying the simple inclusion process (SIP). The simple inclusion process is a model coming from statistical physics that models the jumping of particles in a graph. In the model particles have attraction among each other and each site also has a characteristic...

Efficient repositioning strategies for idle vehicles in ride-sourcing systems help reduce passengers' waiting time and drivers' operational costs, which help platforms attract more passengers and drivers. In this paper, we propose a decentralized repositioning strategy for drivers, in which drivers make individual decisions on where they...

Corporations’ economic activities put significant stress on the environment. In order to limit global warming to 1.5°C, companies need to significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. However, shifting the responsibility of decarbonisation from being solely on governments to being shared with these companies is only a recent phenomenon....

: There has been a growing number of companies that join, commit and set targets to the Science-Based Targets initiative in recent years. This thesis explores how factors which were found in previous studies to influence the companies’ decision to join SBTi or climate action in general, interact dynamically. Using an agent-based model, the...

In my thesis I was studying the interrelation between network topology and dynamics and the emergence and evolution of institutions for the governance of CPR. This research was intended to shed some light on what is the role of networks in formation of endogenous institutions and the possible insights for policy makers and users of CPR. To...

The Port of Rotterdam is the biggest port in Europe and with its great location an important place for trade between Europe and other continents. Record numbers of intercepted illegal goods show that criminals use this port to traffic illegal goods. A lot is still unknown about the criminal supply chain in the Port of Rotterdam and about the...
