University business incubators are a global rising phenomenon and have an imprint on the genetics of high technology-based academic spin-offs and are central to the triple-helix model of innovation systems for academia-industry-policy. Research focused on Regional Innovation System of Delft suggest that the high technology-based start-ups face...

The economic engineering group at the DCSC uses Newtonian and analytical mechanics to model economic systems but makes no use of thermodynamics. The introduction of thermodynamics to the economic engineering framework would increase the extent of analysis and interpretation of economic systems in economic engineering. In this thesis the...

An entrepreneurial ecosystem has become a paradigm between policy makers, regional developers as well as profit seeking organizations to spur start-up establishment and growth rates. Numerous studies have focused on conceptualization of an entrepreneurial ecosystem and the potential benefits that may be accrued regionally by effectively...

This research has compared three different market mechanisms in a quantitative way. The influences of these market mechanisms on the heating system were investigated for CO2 emissions, consumer price and producer surplus. In addition, the influences of investment decisions and price and consumption growth scenarios were tested. The research...

In 2008, the crash of the housing market bubble lead not only to the collapse of the U.S financial system, but also to a Global Financial Crisis. The Eurozone was hurt, and the impact was not uniform. The “sick periphery”, and in particular Greece, still suffer from the consequences of this crisis. After three adjustment programmes and €293...

In order to realize sustainable customer growth, a company could adopt different strategies: opening up a new market, developing new products, etc. Based on the SWOT analysis, No Label is small and lacking capital, while its main target group (middle-class men, aged 25-45) is growing rapidly. Thus, No Label’s biggest opportunity lies in focusing...

This thesis presents a model that is able to predict fatigue crack growth and damage directionality in non-conventional Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) in CentreCracked Tension (CCT) specimens. Non-conventional FMLs encompass all FMLs other than standardised ones such as GLARE. FMLs can be made non-conventional by using multiple fibre types, any...

The issue of suburban sprawl in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTA) has been increasing the pressures of land consumption, infrastructure development, resource consumption, and population growth over the past 50 years. The same can be said for many peripheral regions of Canada’s urban areas. In 2011, two thirds of the population of...

In Europe there is a growing concern about the development of future urban form, especially deconcentrating of urban land use in the form of urban sprawl. Urban sprawl is synonymous with unplanned incremental urban development, characterized by a low density mix of land uses on the urban fringe. On 7th Environment Action Programme to 2020 ...

This research examined the effect of an improved road network on the factors economic growth, road safety, emissions, education, health, employment and tourism in developing countries. A case study is conducted on the country Namibia in Southern Africa. A System Dynamics (SD) model is developed to assess the effects of future scenarios in terms...

In the present research, the activation parameterization method introduced by Nenes and Seinfeld (2003) was compared and evaluated to a remote sensing-based method by Rusli, Donovan & Russchenberg (2017) for determining the cloud drop number concentration. Both methods have fundamentally different approaches for indirectly determining the...

A new certification approach for bonded primary Fiber Metal Laminate (FML) structures is investigated: using bolts as Disbond Arrest Features (DAF)s to contain the growth of bond line damages so that they can be found and repaired by inspection before becoming critical. By fatigue testing with coupon specimens and model analysis, it has been...

In 2003, it was established that the sea dike between Petten and Camperduin was insufficiently safe.<br/>To ensure the safety of the hinterland against flooding, this part of the Dutch sea defence system needed to be strengthened.<br/>During the design process, the most favourable variant was to construct a dune and beach system in front of the...

The Pd-based metal membranes have been focused on many studies, because they are the most promising candidates for hydrogen separation. If Pd-based membranes are designed in nanoscale, then the introduced high volume fraction of grain boundaries can act as fast diffusion paths for hydrogen atoms that leading to an increase of hydrogen separation...

Purple non-sulfur bacteria (PNSB) consist of wide genera of phototrophic bacteria found in various aquatic system. A high versatility in their mode of growth ranging from photoheterotrophic to dark fermentation gives them various potential applications. Their nature of being phototrophs require them to obtain light as energy source for growth...

This thesis presents a case study on beach growth of a South Holland beach located slightly north of the Sand Motor over the course of six months, which was measured using a terrestrial laser scanner (TLS). This device was set up to continuously take hourly full coverage measurements of a one kilometre stretch of beach from a hotel rooftop. <br/...

The Sand Engine was constructed in 2011 with the main goal to enhance the natural dune growth. It is the first mega nourishment in the world comprising of 21.5 Mm<sup>3</sup> of sediment. There is a large difference between the predictions of the dune growth (25 ha in 20 years) and the actual measurements (1 ha in 4 years). Therefore a more...

Authors such as Clough (1955) and Rostow (1960) believed that countries endowed with natural resources could achieve sustainable economic growth. This belief was based on the role coal and oil had during the 19th and 20th century in the industrial development of countries such as Australia, Canada and the United States of America. However, this...

An important challenge in developing a social robot is making the interaction between human and robot to be more pleasant and convenient. It could be obtained by making the robot to develop, i.e. change its behavior over the course of time. Here we study two aspects of development: behavioral adaptation and behavioral complexity to which we...

These days, technological progress and automation are widespread, but productivity growth and thus overall economic growth lags behind. There is a strong conviction that the declining growth rates are caused by a shortfall in aggregate demand. This shortfall in aggregate demand might be due to the development of a ‘dual economy’. A dual economy...
