Gaps and overlaps between pre-preg plies represent common flaws in composite materials that can be introduced easily in an automated fibre placement manufacturing process and are potentially detrimental for the mechanical performances of the final laminates. Whereas gaps and overlaps have been addressed for full composite material, the topic...

Transition zones in railway tracks are locationswith considerable changes in the rail-supporting structure. Typically, they are located near engineering structures, such as bridges, culverts and tunnels. In such locations, severe differential settlements often occur due to the different material properties and structure behavior. Without...

The near-term artificial intelligence, commonly referred as ‘weak AI’ in the last couple years was achieved thanks to the advances in machine learning (ML), particularly deep learning, which has currently the best in-class performance outperforming other machine learning algorithms. In the deep learning framework, many natural tasks such as...

Automated optic inspection of concrete aggregates for pollutants (e.g. wood, plastics, gypsum and brick) is required to establish the suitability for reuse in new concrete products. Inspection is more efficient when directly sampling the materials on the conveyor belt instead of feeding them in a sampled stream to the sensor system. However,...

In this paper key challenges posed on metrology by feature dimensions of 20nm and below are discussed. In detail, the need for software-based tools for SEM image acquisition and image analysis in environments where CD-SEMs are not available and/or not flexible enough to cover all inspection tasks is outlined. These environments include...

In 2015, a multi-resistant Klebsiella pneumonia bacteria (“MR Klebsiella”) was found in two Olympus video duodenoscopes of the type TJF-Q180V in the Utrecht University Medical Center (“UMC Utrecht”) after the culturing of flush samples (sterile physiological saline), which were sent through the suction and biopsy channels. This report describes...

This thesis describes the development and testing of a methodology to use information collected by volunteers and technicians on the status of hydraulic structures, applicable for day-to-day risk management. The study was performed in the northeastern Italian Alps of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. A decision support method was developed and...

Research in the field of information security economics has clarified how attacker and defender incentives affect cybersecurity. It has also highlighted the role of intermediaries in strengthening cybersecurity. Intermediaries are organizations and firms that provide the Internet’s infrastructure and platforms. This dissertation looks at how...

Asset management is a tool for maintaining the required level of serviceability of urban drainage systems, which are costly to construct and in some cases even more costly to replace. The required asset management effort to achieve a certain level of service is unclear due to a limited knowledge on sewer failure mechanisms and due to scarcity of...

Operational decision-making processes for networked infrastructure management often occur as a multi-actor planning problem, implying these are based on negotiations between different stakeholders in addition to available system quality information. As such, does more accurate data about actual structural condition lead to other or better...

Optical inspection of a thick layer of granules for foreign particles does not directly reveal their true number and the more so if the layer is not homogenous. This raises questions such as “how do I know if the layer is homogenous?” and “what is the relation between the observable particles and the true number?” In this work a theory is...

Optical near-field technologies such as solid immersion lenses and hyperlenses are candidate solutions for high resolution and high throughput wafer inspection and metrology for the next technology nodes. Besides sub-diffraction limited optical performance, these concepts share the necessity of extreme proximity to the sample at distances that...

The ministry of land, infrastructures, transportation and tourism (MLIT) of the Japanese government maintains governmental managed river levee for the safety against flood whose total length is more than 10,000 km. The design standard of river levee had been traditionally done based on so called shape based specification, where levee is judged...

There is still a long way to go in understanding the behaviour of solids in sewers due to the difficulties in obtaining sufficient monitoring data to be able to understand the dominant processes. Laser profilers have shown to be capable of measuring the pipe interior, with a high accuracy, which is sufficient to be able to detect and quantify...

Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) is a promising candidate for accurate assessment of metrology and defects on wafers and masks, however it has traditionally been too slow for high-throughput applications, although recent developments have significantly pushed the speed of SPM [1,2]. In this paper we present new results obtained with our...

Inspection tools for nano-particle contamination on a planar substrate surface is a critical problem in micro-electronics. The present solutions are either expensive and slow or inexpensive and fast but have low sensitivity because of limitations due to diffraction. Most of them are also substrate specific. In this article we report how Coherent...

With the device dimensions moving towards the 1X node, the semiconductor industry is rapidly approaching the point where 10 nm defects become critical. Therefore, new methods for improving the yield are emerging, including inspection and review methods with sufficient resolution and throughput. Existing industrial tools cannot anymore fulfill...
