Sandy beaches are subject to changes due to multiple factors, that are both natural (e.g. storms) and anthropogenic. Great efforts are being made to monitor these ecosystems and understand their dynamics in order to assure their conservation. The identification of anthropogenic changes and its differentiation from natural ones is an important...

In the last decades, recent earthquakes have further highlighted the high vulnerability of non-structural components. Post-earthquake damage due to building envelope, equipment and building contents can lead to substantial economic losses in terms of repair costs and daily activity interruption (downtime). Moreover, non-structural damage can...

Global climate change affects mountain regions such as the European Alps. Consequently, glacier extents decrease, and proglacial areas, the areas that recently lost their ice cover, increase in size. These proglacial areas are subject to a high frequency and magnitude of geomorphological activity and act as a sediment source for downstream...

Blind Source Separation (BSS), the separation of latent source components from observed mixtures, is relevant to many fields of expertise such as neuro-imaging, economics and machine learning. Reliable estimates of the sources can be obtained through diagonalization of the cumulant tensor, i.e., a fourth-order symmetric multi-linear array...

Engine maintenance needs to be planned timely and strategically. This can only be done if the health of the engine can be predicted, which requires an accurate engine performance model. Developing such a model is becoming increasingly challenging, due to the reduced number of sensors in modern gas turbines. Besides this, a lot of data is...

Global climate change has results in a higher frequency of extreme disaster events and is therefore a serious challenge in disaster impact management. Disaster risk is composed of several components, such as vulnerability, susceptibility, exposure and the probability of occurence and intensity of a hazard. Vulnerability has become a topical...

Acetabular component revision surgery in people with severe acetabular bone defect is challenging and associated with higher failure rates compared to primary total hip arthroplasty. This MSc Thesis project aimed to assess the static strength of a novel custom triflange acetabular component (CTAC) by experimental testing and finite element (FE)...

Precast concrete appears to be promising in dealing with delays in housing construction, yet long lead times are apparent in this industry. Lead time refers to the time that elapses between placing and receiving an order. The construction company Janssen de Jong recognizes the problem of sub-components’ long lead times in precast concrete house...

The demand for environmentally friendly aviation has increased the interest in alternative concepts, such as hybrid-electric propulsion systems. A novel conceptual hybrid-electric sizing methodology was devised, which provides a detailed engine performance prediction and an accurate sizing of the powertrain components. The performance prediction...

In recent years, the increase in brain research led to the development of large-scale brain imaging techniques. With large-scale brain imaging techniques, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), functional connectivity analyses have shown altered connectivity patterns in humans and mice with neurobiological disorders, such as...

The water quality of the Brantas river in Indonesia is of concern to several agencies on East Java. These agencies all measure its water quality in their own way in terms of locations, rhythms and parameters. The goal of this thesis is to find out if these agencies measure the same and if not, how these measurements differ. From these...

This thesis analyses the importance and application of considering multiple coexisting wave trains in sediment transport predictions.<br/><br/>The wave trains at offshore and nearshore locations are analyzed by wave spectral partitions (Portilla at el., 2009). The temporal variability of consistently occurring wave trains can be analyzed through...

Nowadays, the built environment of the Netherlands is making the transition from the linear to circular economy to meet the goals set by the European Union and the Dutch government of 50% circular economy by 2030. However, there is limited knowledge in the built environment for circular economy projects. In order to generate knowledge on the...

Global awareness has arisen for sustainable development to reduce the burden of the building sector on the earth’s ecosystems. One of these sustainable developments is the transition towards a 100% circular building economy with high-quality reuse. However, the sector has insufficient knowledge and understanding about the possibilities and...

Three-dimensional (3D) geometric bridge models play an important role in bridge inspection, assessment, and management. Laser scanning nowadays offers a cost-efficient method to capture dense, accurate 3D topographic data of surfaces of the bridge. However, given the typical complexity of bridges, current workflows using commercial software...

The built environment can be made more circular by gradually replacing building components with more circular components during construction, renovation, or maintenance. However, many different design options can be seen as circular. Although there is a growing number of studies about circular design options, research on what makes these options...

With the advancement of multi-constellation and multi-frequency global navigation satellite systems (GNSSs), more observations are available for high precision positioning applications. Although there is a lot of progress in the GNSS world, achieving realistic precision of the solution (neither too optimistic nor too pessimistic) is still an...

The molecular dynamics (MD) simulation method is proved as an efficient tool to explore the intermolecular interaction between rejuvenators and aged bitumen, but the simple “singlemolecule” model of rejuvenator would bring the inaccuracy to simulation outputs due to a huge difference with its realistic multi-component chrematistic. This study...
