Geodesists use multiple methods to monitor surface deformation. This gives the opportunity to integrate complementary data for better interpretation of deformation processes. The integration of data has to deal with: (1) spatio-temporal differences in sampling methodologies, meaning that observed objects are not the same and thus observed...

This research presents an Integrated Production and Distribution Scheduling (IPDS) optimization problem in which the total transportation costs for an online grocer have to be minimized. The production refers to the preparation of orders at the production facility and the distribution is related to the transportation from the production...

In order to counter climate change many approaches have been taken to make
the building sector more sustainable. But for porch houses there aren't many
solutions on the market. This research project uses one of the approaches that
is does focus on porch houses, 2ndskin. In march 2018 a demonstrator project
has been build in...

To date, an unprecedented number of 65 million people around the world have been displaced. Of this, 25.4 million are refugees. In Europe, almost three million people claimed asylum in the EU between 2015 and 2016. However there has been relatively little discussion within the architectural community as to how architecture should engage with and...

Space mission design is an activity that deals with a highly complex, non-linear system of which the requirements and characteristics are subject to regular change. This has consequences on the mathematical design but also the translation to hardware. In this thesis, we explore the use of Integrated Mission Design (IMD); a data-driven design...

The summer and autumn of 2018 showed the negative effects of both low-flow conditions and bed degradation over the last century on the river functions of the Dutch Rhine. These resulted in record-breaking water levels, extreme low navigation depth and subsequently nautical problems. As climate change will increase the inter-annual variability of...

In the future most of us will be living in cities and due to climate change global average temperatures are expected to rise. As a result of the urban heat island effect, the temperature in cities can be up to 7 C higher than in the surrounding rural area. Higher air temperatures are not only uncomfortable, but also unhealthy especially for...

In the Netherlands, a new assessment method for the required safety level of primary flood defences is introduced in the Water Act. It is estimated that currently roughly 1900 kilometres of flood protection does not meet the safety requirements for the future (Jonkman, Jorissen, Schweckendieck & Van den Bos, 2017). Past flood defence...

“Who of us would not be happy to lift the veil behind which the future is hidden and to focus our thoughts on the unknown future” (Shepherd & Williams, 2015). What if we already know our unknowns, would it not be a piece of cake to deliver construction projects of high quality within time and budget? In order to predict the unknown future,...

The shifting of the European countries, including the Netherlands, towards an electricity production dominated by renewable energy sources to be (nearly 70%) by mid-century will have a significant impact on the frequency performance of electric networks. This would cause the level of grid inertia to be considerably reduced. From this perspective...

Quantum computers seem very promising in solving problems that are too large to be solved by classical computers that are available today. However, to generate reasonable amounts of computing power, many qubits will be required. Each of the qubits has to be individually controlled and needs to be kept at cryogenic temperatures. To allow for the...

Quantum computers are able to deal with large problems, like molecular modelling, financial prediction and cryptography. A classical controller is used to control the qubits of the quantum computer. A proposed controller, operating at 4K, needs a clean voltage supply in order to function well. The long interconnects between the room temperature...

The Flying-V is a novel flying wing concept where the main lifting surface has been fully integrated with the passenger cabin. Previous studies have focused on the aerodynamic and structural design of the airframe; but, prior to determining which engine-airframe integration alternative is most beneficial (e.g. boundary layer ingestion, distributed...

The report starts in Chapter 1 with an introduction to the Sponge City Programme (SCP) in China and the project area which is the ErQi International Business District in Wuhan. In this chapter, the problem statement, our collaboration with Arcadis and our project goals are also introduced. Chapter 2 delves into our methodology to tackle the...

Photovoltaic Technologies in recent years have gained immense attention owing to reduced costs and increasing efficiencies. While decades of research in Photovoltaic Thermal (PVT) technologies, producing thermal and electrical energy simultaneously have brought these costs further down, improving a system’s overall performance. PVT collectors...

In recent years, there has been a growing necessity for 3D geoinformation in urban planning and infrastructure management to provide a more realistic representation of urban areas and the built environment. A key concept in public infrastructure management is Life Cycle Asset Management (LCAM), which aims to improve the decision making in each...

Refugees that arrive in The Netherlands to seek asylum enter a system that often takes a long time and does not adequately prepare them for life in The Netherlands. The spaces are not built for long term habitation and moving about is commonplace, meaning that no network can be established. Therefore, this graduation project researches and...

The introduction and obligation of tendering PT (concessions) in Europe has led to more focus on cost-efficiency and contracts. An additional effect in regional PT is the increase of undesirable boundaries between train and bus, e.g. in the form of non-aligned tariffs and bad interchange possibilities. The goal of a multimodal concession is to...

With the advances towards a quantum computer incorporating many qubits, the demand for a scalable readout and control platform rises. Recent proposals for such a platform exploit the maturity of CMOS technology, to implement the various analog, RF and digital circuits required. To allow for scaling, the electronics that constitute this platform...

National policies that seek to stimulate the energy transition require attention with the requirement for generation sources that can compensate for moments when wind and solar plants are not available. Electricity supply needs to adjust to demand in real-time, at least until energy storage becomes commercially viable, otherwise the energy...
