<b>Background</b><br/>Spasticity is a condition that affects patients who have sustained an upper motor neuron lesion. Such lesions include for example cerebral palsy (CP), of which 35% is affected by spasticity, and stroke, of which 90% is affected by spasticity. Pharmacological therapy often involves the prescription of oral baclofen. However,...

This master thesis provides a review of dynamic energy contracts and their role in shifting electricity consumption in households in the Netherlands. In this research the mixed-methods approach is used to identify changes in electricity consumption behavior of consumers with a dynamic energy contract compared to consumers with a fixed energy...

The digital world is evolving toward representing - and serving the interconnection of - natural persons. Instead of depending on the intrastructure of Big Tech companies and governments, users can cooperate and use their hardware to form public infrastructure. Instead of existing by virtue of a reference in some institution's database, users...

L-Systems allow for the efficient procedeural generation of trees to be used for rendering in video games and simulations. Currently, however, it is difficult to engineer grammars that mimic the behaviours of real life trees in 3 dimensions. To be able to deduce them, the skeleton of a tree can be used to train a model and generate an L-system...

Since its emergence in 2008, blockchain technology has significantly expanded its scope, impacting various industries beyond its initial cryptocurrency applications. Its potential to enhance established practices is increasingly recognized, yet its application in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry has been relatively...

Blockchain programs (also known as smart contracts) manage valuable assets like cryptocurrencies and tokens, and implement protocols in domains like decentralized finance (DeFi) and supply-chain management. These types of applications require a high level of security that is hard to achieve due to the transparency of public blockchains....

For a simple graph Γ and for unital C<sup>*</sup>-algebras with GNS-faithful states (A<sub>v</sub>,φ<sub>v</sub>) for v∈VΓ, we consider the reduced graph product (A,φ)=⁎<sub>v,Γ</sub>(A<sub>v</sub>,φ<sub>v</sub>), and show that if every C<sup>*</sup>-algebra A<sub>v</sub> has the completely contractive approximation property (CCAP) and...

This paper presents a first conceptualization for decentralized project delivery through the combination of blockchain technology and common pool resource governance theory, also known as the ”crypto commons”. While previous literature on project delivery models identifies the use of decentralized governance, there is not yet a holistic...

We obtain rates of contraction of posterior distributions in inverse problems with discrete observations. In a general setting of smoothness scales we derive abstract results for general priors, with contraction rates determined by discrete Galerkin approximation. The rate depends on the amount of prior concentration near the true function...

Background: Financial incentives are a promising tool to help people increase their physical activity, but they are expensive to provide. Deposit contracts are a type of financial incentive in which participants pledge their own money. However, low uptake is a crucial obstacle to the large-scale implementation of deposit contracts. Therefore,...

Imagine you need to navigate through a completely dark cave. A well-known way of achieving this is echolocation, which works by making sounds and listening to how they are reflected back. The problem of determining the geometric shape of a space from a mixture of reflections of emitted sounds, is an example of an inverse problem. In many fields...

van Delzen, Timo (author)
Offshore bidding zones will eventually result in lower revenues for offshore wind farm owners due to a lower electricity volume and price risk, especially when flow-based market coupling and advanced hybrid coupling are implemented in the electricity system. This results in a demand to improve the investment climate for offshore wind farm owners...

Burns can make patients’ lives quite miserable. Apart from prominent and thickened, or hypertrophic, scars, the skin may be characterized by contraction. When this contraction is so severe that the patient loses joint mobility, it is called contracture. Then a patient may have difficulties with sports or other daily activities. The consequence...

Soil liquefaction is a phenomenon in which an otherwise stiff, loosely packed, cohesionless soil loses its strength and behaves behaves like a viscous liquid in response to a change in stress conditions. This study focuses on liquefaction under monotonic load (i.e. static liquefaction) and not cyclic liquefaction. While the role of state...

Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) projects have become an internationally popular model for construction projects, where large risks are bore by the EPC contractor and the subcontractors [Galloway, 2009; Guo et al., 2010]. Risks are inherent to all construction projects, however, the high uncertainties of the international EPC...

On a general level, the Dutch government wants to have a fully circular economy by 2050 by reducing the use of primary materials and carbon dioxide emissions. As the consideration and integration of concepts such as sustainability and circular economy are becoming increasingly popular in the civil engineering sector, it might be time to re...

Introduction: The challenge of the energy transition in the built environment has, in recent years, been exacerbated by rising awareness of the material resource limitations we face on the path towards sustainable development. In this context the concepts of Circular Economy (CE) and Product-Service Systems (PSS) have emerged as potentially...

We consider the stability analysis of a two-dimensional model for post-burn contraction. The model is based on morphoelasticity for permanent deformations and combined with a chemical-biological model that incorporates cellular densities, collagen density, and the concentration of chemoattractants. We formulate stability conditions depending...

Background: Gamification and deposit contracts (a financial incentive in which participants pledge their own money) can enhance effectiveness of mobile behavior change interventions. However, to assess their potential for improving population health, research should investigate implementation of gamified deposit contracts outside the research...

The adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has resulted in a significant shift in how the data of European Union citizens is handled. A variety of data sharing challenges in scenarios such as smart cities have arisen, especially when attempting to semantically represent GDPR legal bases, such as consent, contracts and the...
