The increase of demand for offshore wind energy resulted in an increase of larger wind turbines. These turbines are often placed on top of a monopile (MP) substructure. The conventional method for installing these MPs uses a jack-up vessel. However, due to the local bathymetry and soil conditions. This method has its drawbacks, such as...

The placement of a subwoofer has significant impact on the quality of its sound reproduction. This paper present a method to optimise subwoofer placement in a room. Resonances caused by room boundaries (called "room modes") cause localised peaks and lows for specific lower frequencies. The goal is to minimize the simulated frequency response...

Piled foundations are commonly employed to reduce settlements of artificial earth embankments on soft soil strata and geosynthetic reinforcements are installed at the embankment base to increase pile spacing and reduce construction costs. Despite the well-documented effectiveness of this technique, the mechanical processes, developing during...

With the rise of hydrogen as a green alternative for fossil fuels, the demand for storage capacity of hydrogen increases significantly. Due to the high risk of explosions in urban environments it brings along, the blast analysis of buildings within in range of the explosions becomes more relevant.<br/><br/>The goal of this research is to develop...

With a rapid increase in computational resources two dimensional full-waveform inversion is evolving into a promising tool for near-surface geophysics. However, near-surface applications suffer from local minima due to amplitude errors associated with two dimensional full-waveform inversion. By clever definition of the misfit function, the...

This thesis is inspired by Active Inference to contribute to its improvement in the Robotics work field. However, the results and applications of this thesis are useful in a broader perspective, namely in any field that makes use of derivatives and the forecasting of a time-series signal. The goal of this study is to determine a new approach for...

The continued development of improved algorithms and architecture for numerical simulations is at the core of increased computational performance and, therefore, the ability to perform more complex and precise numerical simulations in less time in areas such as Computational Fluid Dynamics. Employing faster algorithms on more efficient...

The combination of interstitial hyperthermia treatment (IHT) with high dose rate brachytherapy (HDR‐BT) can improve clinical outcomes since it highly enhances the efficiency of cell kill, especially when applied simultaneously. Therefore, we have developed the ThermoBrachy applicators. To effectively apply optimal targeted IHT, treatment...

Crumb rubber (CR) has been proposed to apply in the ballast or sub-ballast layer for ballast degradation mitigation and vibration (noise) reduction. The CR can change the ballast layer stiffness, which can affect the train-track-subgrade dynamic performance and cause travel comfort and safety issues. Towards this, this study aims at...

A new approach to applying the finite difference method for solving the shell model problem. By solving the general shell differential equations (Sanders-Koiter equations) with first-order finite-difference approximation only, a finite difference algorithm called shell code has been developed. <br/><br/>To this end, a 1200-line Python program...

Railway ballasted track stiffness is an important indicator to identify supporting condition that ensures that the facility is well designed and functioned. Although many studies have been performed on track stiffness based on experimental tests and finite-element methods, the factors influencing the track stiffness have not been completely...

This thesis is a contribution to the research on Active Inference for Robotics. Active Inference is an intricate, intriguing theory from neuroscience, a field in which it has already gained a greater following and popularity. This theory, based on the underlying Free Energy Principle, provides a unified account of perception, action and learning...

This thesis studies advanced and accurate discretization schemes for relevant partial differential equations (PDEs) in finance. We start with techniques which may be particularly useful for the pricing of so-called vanilla financial options, European or American, and then move on to more complex models for the pricing of exotic options.<br/>

A new approach to applying the finite difference method for solving the plate model problem. By decomposing higher-order differential equations in plate theory into several first-order differential equations, a python program was built in an attempt to solve those equations with first-order finite difference approximation. After testing several...

To probe into the mechanical behaviour of railway transition zone from the macro-meso aspects, a numerical model of transition zone is built that hybrids the Discrete Element Method (DEM) and Finite Difference Method (FDM). The DEM is utilised to simulate the ballast bed and sleeper, because it can consider the realistic ballast shapes and...

This paper presents a multi-layer railway ballast track and substructure model, where a coupled discrete and continuous method is used for macro-meso dynamic behaviour analysis under moving wheel loads. In this coupled model, the discrete element method (DEM) is utilised to build the superstructure of the ballast track (i.e. rail, fastener,...

This paper aims to present the extension of the non-hydrostatic wave-flow model SWASH with the covolume method to build discretization schemes on unstructured triangular grids. Central to this method that is free of spurious pressure modes, is the use of dual pairs of meshes that are mutually orthogonal, such as the Delaunay-Voronoi mesh...

We are concerned with the numerical solution of a linear transport problem with nonzero divergence velocity field that originates from the spectral energy balance equation describing the evolution of wind waves and swells in coastal seas. The discretization error of the commonly used first-order upwind finite difference and first-order vertex...

The multi-pole PML (MPML) is tested on models that simulate seismic waves traveling through the subsurface. Using a recursive integration technique a stretching function consisting of the sum of multiple stretching functions is implemented in the velocity-stress finite difference time domain wave equations. The MPML is implemented in both the...

The purpose of this work is to point out the relevance of the Rankine-Hugoniot jump relations regarding the numerical solution of the inviscid shallow water equations. To arrive at physically relevant solutions in rapidly varied flow, it is of crucial importance that continuity of mass flux and momentum flux across a steady discontinuity is...
