Numerical modelling of high frequency waves is a complex and challenging area. Although the underlying equation seems simple, −∆φ − k2φ = f, the numerical challenges are not. This time harmonic wave equation is known as the Helmholtz equation. The main challenge to be studied is the pollution error, which is the difference between the actual and...

Serious games have the potential to be used as an innovative data collection method. Combining this with Discrete Choice Modelling (DCM) could create a methodology that provides insight into the player's behaviour and allows for creating a realistic simulation. This innovative Game and Choice Based Simulation (GCBS) methodology has been...

Agent-based modelling and simulation has shown to be a suitable paradigm for analyzing complex airport systems, such as airport security checkpoints. The models can be used to analyze important airport terminal performance areas, such as security and efficiency. However, limited knowledge exists on how agent-based models can be used to aid...

Inland waterway transport (IWT) is one of the three main modalities for inland transport of dry, liquid and containerized cargo. As IWT performs well on cost-competitiveness, environmental friendliness, and congestion-related issues, authorities strive to shift freight transport from road to water. Inland waterway connections, however, are...

A switching max-plus linear model is a framework to describe the discrete dynamics of the timing of events. To influence these systems one can choose the routes of jobs and the orderings of operations as input for the system. In this thesis the techniques of model predictive control are used to find good input values. The problem of finding the...

The growing energy demands and the global shift towards Renewable Energy resources (RES), has resulted in rapid growth of the electrical power grid. With the integration of further RES into the power grid, the need for a resilient and smart power grid has never been greater. For meeting this necessity, the electrical power grid is undergoing a...

The main objective of this study is to quantify interference effects between production and injection wells for geothermal projects that operate within the same reservoir. The secondary objective is to study the time it takes for the reservoir unit to thermally recharge after production has stopped. Two reservoir simulators are benchmarked to...

Currently a new small and automated dairy factory for the onsite production of cheese at farms is under devel-opment. This new factory aims at the production of cheese without any human interaction, based on the (raw) milk from cows who are milked with a milking robot. At the moment only a small test factory exists, in which human interaction is...

Port call efficiency (PCE) is an important factor in the port choice of shipping lines. This research strives to contribute to the current work on PCE optimization. This is done by applying relative new techniques on port call related data. A combination of process mining (PM) and discrete event simulation (DEVS) is explored, with the Port of...

Common Reed (Phragmites Australis) is an abundantly available, sustainable construction material that can be found throughout the world. Reed is most commonly used for thatch roofing in Europe, providing insulation and a weather-tight surface. Elsewhere, traditional techniques of weaving and bundling reeds have long been used to create entire...

Quadrangular Grid shells have generated interest in recent years for their application in rationalizing free form geometry in the built environment. Shell structure are efficient because their form is governed by flow of internal forces. But while discretizing shells into grid shells, instead of using flow of forces, current method follows...
