The goal of this research is to provide insights into the relationships between complexities and risks to be used in risk analysis and management of complex construction projects. In preparation of the exploratory survey, a literature study is performed. After that, the CBRAT (Complexity Based Risk Assessment Technique) is designed to capture...

It is argued that there are interconnected and dynamic factors that influence the sustainability of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services in developing countries. Five sustainability factors are often mentioned by literature: financial, institutional, environmental, technical, and social (FIETS) factors. This article aims to...

Travel-related attitudes are believed to affect the connections between the built environment and travel behaviour. Previous studies found supporting evidence for the residential self-selection hypothesis which suggests that the impact of the built environment on travel behaviour could be overestimated when attitudes are not accounted for....

Airports are important transportation hubs that reside in the heart of modern civilizations.They are of major economic and symbolic value for countries but are thereforealso attractive targets for adversaries. Over the years we have observed successful andunsuccessful terrorist attacks at airports, of which the recent Brussels Airport attack...

Psychological factors are generally thought to play an important role in the prediction of individual variations in travel behavior and travel related choices. To assess their effects in statistical models, three assumptions are typically made, namely: (1) the psychological factors influence behavior/choices and not vice versa, (2)...

Chromatin ‘blobs’ were recently identified by live super-resolution imaging of labeled nucleosomes as pervasive but fleeting structural entities. However, the mechanisms leading to the formation of these blobs and their functional implications are unknown. We explore here whether causal relationships exist between parameters that characterize...

This chapter gives an overview of the current debates on residential self-selection and presents a related research agenda. Here, we define residential self-selection as “the tendency of people to choose residential locations based on their travel abilities, needs and preferences.” Debates relate to theory/causalities (including the role of...

Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are considered an important contribution to the global task of creating a greener society as it allows for the benefits of commuting to sustain, without the consequence of pollution. Consequently, central and local governments across the globe are attempting to spark the diffusion of BEVs through various measures...

Connecting human minds to various technological devices and applications through brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) affords intriguingly novel ways for humans to engage and interact with the world. Not only do BCIs play an important role in restorative medicine, they are also increasingly used outside of medical or therapeutic contexts (e.g.,...

Recently, many have argued that there are certain kinds of abstract mathematical explanations that are noncausal. In particular, the irrelevancy approach suggests that abstracting away irrelevant causal details can leave us with a noncausal explanation. In this paper, I argue that the common example of Renormalization Group (RG) explanations of...

Relevance: To enhance our understanding of motor impairments (e.g. post-stroke or due to Parkinson's Disease), objective measures for communication in the nervous system are required. By applying system identification techniques to oscillations in brain and muscle activity, we can objectively quantify the coupling between these areas.<br/><br/...

The dynamic relation between the displacement and reaction torque of the human joint is known as joint impedance. Properly quantifying joint impedance has medical potential in the diagnosis, understanding and modelling of movement disorders associated with neuromuscular conditions like cerebral palsy, stroke, dystonia and old age. The...

Travel-related attitudes and dissonance between attitudes and the characteristics of the residential built environment are believed to play an important role in the effectiveness of land use policies that aim to influence travel behaviour. To date, research on the nature and directions of causality of the links between these variables has...

Experiments have always been the way to study what the effect is of interventions. Causal inference is an important aspect. In this thesis we gave an introduction to causal inference. We did this by giving an example that illustrates the Fundamental Problem of Causal Inference.<br/>The Fundamental Problem of Causal Inference states that it is...

Open government data initiatives result in the expectation of having open data available. Nevertheless, some potential risks like sensitivity, privacy, ownership, misinterpretation, and misuse of the data result in the reluctance of governments to open their data. At this moment, there is no comprehensive overview nor a model to understand the...

Neural coupling between the central nervous system and the periphery is essential for the neural control of movement. Corticomuscular coherence is a popular linear technique to assess synchronised oscillatory activity in the sensorimotor system. This oscillatory coupling originates from ascending somatosensory feedback and descending motor...

Mechanical perturbations applied to the wrist joint typically evoke a stereotypical sequence of cortical and muscle responses. The early cortical responses (&lt;100 ms) are thought be involved in the “rapid” transcortical reaction to the perturbation while the late cortical responses (&gt;100 ms) are related to the “slow” transcortical reaction....

Purpose: This paper aims to examine the existence of the ripple effect from Amsterdam to the housing markets of other regions in The Netherlands. It identifies which regional housing markets are influenced by house price movements in Amsterdam. Design/methodology/approach: The paper considers the ripple effect as a lead-lag effect and a long...

Average weights, controlled for length, the so-called body mass index (BMI) are increasing and a lot of health issues are related with this weight gain. Governments around the world try to turn this trend around. One of the policies that is expected to influence BMI, is influencing travel behavior by making changes in the built environment....

The recent Global Financial Crisis has lent even greater urgency to the need for households to understand the risks and dynamics of the residential property market better. This paper uses a rich dataset on individual residential property transactions between 1995 and 2014 in Amsterdam to study the risks and the inter-dependency of house prices...
