Lengyel, A. (author)
Computer vision algorithms are getting more advanced by the day and slowly approach human-like capabilities, such as detecting objects in cluttered scenes and recognizing facial expressions. Yet, computers learn to perform these tasks very differently from humans. Where humans can generalize between different lighting conditions or geometric...

Groen, Marsha (author)
Urbanisation is increasing rapidly around the world, bringing with it challenges such as energy consumption, resource depletion and social inequality. The concept of the compact city, which promotes denser settlement patterns for sustainability, has emerged as a response. However, challenges remain in the Dutch context, including land scarcity...

The increasing popularity of sustainable asphalt pavement stems from its advantageous attributes, such as cost-saving, environmental protection, and reductions in energy and material consumption. Although there is a desire to maximize the reuse of reclaimed asphalt (RA) waste materials in road construction, this is hindered by the poor...

The demand for computational resources is increasing exponentially due to an increasing amount of digital services. Cloud computing is becoming the standard for enterprises to provide these resources. This resulted in hyperscalers which consist of a large number of servers. Data centers consume more than 1% of the world’s electrical energy....

The global market for the wastewater treatment industry has been compelled to devise new concepts due to several factors. Currently, approximately 80% of untreated wastewater is discharged worldwide. The conventional technology for municipal solid waste treatment, which has been in use for over a century, is only partially effective in terms of...

Nutrient recovery has lately been a concerning topic regarding the environmental friendliness of it and the high availability of technologies. Ammonia is one of the main compounds in reject water that could be recovered and utilized further in the agricultural sector. Several methods have been found, including conventional electrodialysis, in...

In this thesis report, we delve into a contest game within game theory, where agents’ risk-taking capacity, rather than effort, becomes the pivotal variable. High-quality performance in the game is associated with a higher probability of leading to superior scores through the use of risky strategies. The application of this con test game to...

This study presents a new approach for integrated tail assignment and maintenance task scheduling decision support. Wasted maintenance resources, restricted fleet availability for schedule flexibility, inconsistent planning, and no emphasis on schedule resilience are all inefficiencies that now arise from airlines' separate and manual tail...

In the rapidly evolving aviation sector, the quest for safer and more efficient flight operations has historically relied on traditional Automatic Flight Control Systems (AFCS) based on high-fidelity models. However, such models not only incur high development costs but also struggle to adapt to new, complex aircraft designs and unexpected...

This research attempts to develop a space in the city that, outside of the dynamics of consumption, but not denying the dialogue with the city, seeks to intertwine with its overlaps, by defining the public space of dialogue and representation. On the morbidity of performance and expectation, we might say that the contemporary Utopian intent,...

This paper presents a thorough numerical investigation focused on optimizing the efficiency of quantum-well intermediate-band solar cells (QW-IBSCs) based on III-nitride materials. The optimization strategy encompasses manipulating confinement potential energy, controlling hydrostatic pressure, adjusting compositions, and varying thickness. The...

The need for energy efficient buildings has become increasingly important in climate change mitigation. Almost 75% of the building stock in Europe is energy inefficient. Residential buildings are responsible for 27% of the total energy consumption in Europe. Integrated home renovation services (IHRS) have emerged as a potential solution to...

Drivers initiate a discretionary lane change when they perceive an anticipated improvement in their own driving condition from moving to another lane. However, such a lane change can slow down other vehicles on the target lane, and even worse initiate a disturbance. In this work, we argue that the blocking effect triggered by individual lane...

This paper presents a novel transparent amplifying intelligent surface (TAIS) architecture for uplink enhancement in indoor-To-outdoor mmWave communications. The TAIS is an amplifier-based transmissive intelligent surface that can refract and amplify the incident signal, instead of only refracting it with adjustable phase shift by most...

The growing global energy demand increases the need for renewable energy sources. This increase requires land to be occupied, competing with other activities such as agriculture and residency. In such a situation, renewable energy sources expand to other environments like the ocean. However, this new scene poses some challenges, such as the...

Proton exchange membrane fuel cells offer promising clean energy solutions for various applications. However, their performance relies heavily on the properties of the microporous layer, which plays a crucial role in transporting and distributing the components in the fuel cell. To date, the potential for optimising the microporous layer...

O-RAN systems and their deployment in virtualized general-purpose computing platforms (O-Cloud) constitute a paradigm shift expected to bring unprecedented performance gains. However, these architectures raise new implementation challenges and threaten to worsen the already-high energy consumption of mobile networks. This paper presents first...

The aerobic granular sludge (AGS) process treats wastewater with a significantly lower footprint and energy consumption compared to conventional activated sludge systems. Nevertheless, there is still potential for optimizing its performance, and mathematical models are most valuable tools to this end. Aeration energy consumption deserves...

Methanol and DME are highly efficient fuels and relevant building blocks that can be synthesized by CO<sub>2</sub> hydrogenation. While several alternatives for methanol production by CO<sub>2</sub> hydrogenation have already been developed at a commercial scale, DME production is still based on methanol dehydration. In this sense, the...
