To deal with the pressure on urban energy infrastructures, renewable urban planning is on the rise and ambitious sustainability targets have been set to transform cities. Although these targets have resulted in many sustainable policies, the implementation of sustainability policies is lagging, hindering the energy transition. One such case, is...

Given the desire to construct more structures using sustainable building materials, demand for wood and other bio-based building materials has risen dramatically over the decade. While timber itself is a carbon-neutral material and can sometimes even be carbon-negative, reusing wooden structural members made that have been in service for several...

This thesis presents the research to design a successful high-accuracy, sub-millimetric registration method for an autonomous robot equipped to drill bone for cochlear implant (CI) surgery. Its performance, and thus success, is measured in accuracy, workload, usability and trust. While state-of-the-art (STOTA) research lacks the inclusion of...

Oxygen-ion conducting perovskite oxides are important functional materials for solid oxide fuel cells and oxygen-permeable membranes operating at high temperatures (>500 °C). Co-doped perovskites have recently shown their potential to boost oxygen-related kinetics, but challenges remain in understanding the underlying mechanisms. This...

To assess the structural capacity of reinforced concrete structures, identifying the internal cracks is important. Acoustic emission (AE) is promising to estimate the location of internal cracks. However, the localization is influenced by many factors like arrival time picking error, presence of crack, etc., resulting in localization error. The...

The lack of good road crash data is a serious obstacle to analysing road safety problems in Low-and Middle-Income countries (LMICs) and this complicates, for example, the sound assessment of road safety interventions. Police crash reports are the main source of crash data, but often have significant limitations. This paper describes a...

Localised laser treatments enable the creation of sophisticated austenite/martensite mesostructures in Fe–Ni–C steel with the potential of achieving enhanced mechanical performance. The control of phase topology is essential to modify the properties of these structures on demand and requires a profound understanding of the effect of the...

Multi-barrier cleavage models consider cleavage fracture which is characterized by a series of microscale events. One of the challenges for multi-barrier cleavage models is the strong variations of cleavage parameters across different types of steels. The source and magnitude of the variations have not been studied systematically. In the...

In this paper, a new indicator to localize fatigue damage in a fibre glass composite structure, i.e. spar cap to shear web thick adhesive joint of a wind turbine blade, is presented. This indicator is based on the effect of damping on the phase of the mode shapes of the structure. When fatigue damage occurs, damping increases in the defective...

Over the years, care givers in nursing homes have seen their workload gradually increase. With no end of this trend in sight, the need for smart support systems increases. Especially systems which decrease the time spent on menial tasks are valued highly, because this frees more time for high quality and personal care.<br/>To achieve this, Momo...

For my Master’s thesis, I developed and trained an audio-based localization system for indoor localization called AudioLocNet. AudioLocNet is based on convolutional neural networks and maps recordings from a small(10cm diameter) microphone array to a grid of locations around said array. AudioLocNet was made to be used by swarms of small robots...

This research aims to understand the local governance capacity of Amsterdam Oud-Noord and discover how this area, together with its stakeholders, can improve its climate resilience through transformative climate adaptation governance. This was done by first understanding the research area, its challenges and needed climate adaptation, and by...

One of the main cost drivers of an offshore wind power plant are the support structures of the wind turbines, it is therefore of primary importance to optimize their design. Among the support structures available, the concept most widely adopted is the monopile-based support structure, whose design is often fatigue-driven. Offshore structures...

Existence of commuting THB-spline projectors is of importance in the field of numerical mathematics. These projectors are required to show that numerical solutions to the abstract Hodge Laplace problem are stable and consistent. We have introduced a local THB-spline projector based on Bezier projection, that commutes in the one-dimensional case....

Relative localization (RL) is essential for the successful operation of micro air vehicle (MAV) swarms. Achieving accurate 3-D RL in infrastructure-free and GPS-denied environments with only distance information is a challenging problem that has not been satisfactorily solved. In this work, based on the range-based peer-to-peer RL using the...

Delivery of biomolecules using pulsed electric fields or electrotransfer has applications such as biomedical engineering, bioprocess engineering and genomic engineering. When a cell is placed in an electric field, the induced transmembrane voltage catalyzes the formation of pores on the cell membrane. This enables the delivery of otherwise cell...

This work addresses visual localization for intelligent vehicles. The task of cross-view matching-based localization is to estimate the geo-location of a vehicle-mounted camera by matching the captured street view image with an overhead-view satellite map containing the vehicle's local surroundings. This local satellite view image can be...

Leakage is the main source of water loss in water distribution networks (WDNs). Therefore, leak detection and localization technology is a major concern for water utilities to save water and meet the ever-growing water demand. This study presents two methodologies for leak localization in District Metered Areas (DMAs): (1) a model-based method...

Changes in social, cultural, and economic paradigms have resulted in a collective shift from rural to urban areas over the last few decades. Cities are expanding to accommodate the ever-increasing population influx in urban areas. New buildings, roads, airports, and harbors are only a small part of urban development. It also includes the use of...
