This research investigates the speed behaviour and safety effects on cyclists and mopeds sharing the cyclist T-Intersection with and without the application of a lane marking nudge. Unsignalised cyclist T-Intersection gives rise to more safety-critical instances, which include unsafe braking and evasive maneuvers. It is also found that...

Breaking water waves still represent a very active research area, as they are involved in a broad spectrum of situations ranging from safety at sea to climate change. The detailed knowledge of the location of the free surface in case of breaking waves or wave impacts could prevent structural damages, increase the efficiency of ship hulls and...

The need for higher spatio-temporal resolution Earth observation increases rapidly. To fill this need, the Deployable Space Telescope (DST) project aims to make a light-weight, low-volume deployable telescope. In doing so, the achievable ground resolution is high while the cost per telescope stays low. This allows for the DST to be used in...

This thesis explores Indian construction industry safety measures and their benefit to cost ratios. In India, the construction sector is the second largest employer after agriculture. Around 50 million workers work in the construction sector to earn easy money at the end of the day. About 48,000 workers die in India due to occupational accidents...

Quay walls are often designed with Finite Element models (FE models) to take into account the complex soil-structure interaction and highly non-linear soil behaviour. These are complex models that rely on many input parameters that have uncertainties. Nowadays, new quay walls are often equipped with sensors that collect information about the...

Today, 60% of the European mainline railway network is electrified with 80% of total traffic. It will further increase driven by The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) and sustainability initiatives. As electricity consumption by railway networks increases, quantification of rail transport’s actual energy consumption is essential....

Problem: Due to high rejection rates regarding prostheses’ use, the assessment of the amputee’s use of the prosthesis has become more critical. Today’s prosthesis research is limited to assessing a users’ performance to perform tasks in a controlled environment. Therefore, these studies cannot wholly assess how the prosthesis is used in the...

Past research has successfully increased the accuracy and quality of horizontal wind speed measurements made by cup anemometers. Errors are introduced in a variety of ways: when operational conditions deviate from calibration, due to flow distortion and as a result of the mechanical properties of an instrument changing during its lifetime....

The performance of a product is highly influenced by the users of the product. A Combined Performance Measurement Model of a Shared Rental Vehicle is created to analyse the influence of a user on the vehicle performance. A Performance Measurement model is created to analyse the performance of a Shared Rental Vehicle. User Profiling is used to...

Climate change, as a result from global warming, requires an energy transition: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and a radical innovation of the global energy system to proceed apace. Offshore wind is an important source of clean, renewable energy, and it plays a key role in the transition. 80% of the worldwide...

Aito has developed a technology that can be placedunderneath surfaces to give haptic feedback. They make use of piezoelectricdiscs to sense a pressure difference and actuate a pulse if this differencereaches a certain level. This system is possible because of the piezoelectriccrystals in the discs. These crystals create...

The urban mobility sector is developing at a fast pace and is demanding transportation systems to be resilient and sustainable. Policy makers deal with an extensive offer of new technologies but lack an overview of the contribution of these mobility solutions to their urban planning ambitions. Uncertainty exists regarding both the technological...

Bell inequalities are certain probabilistic inequalities that should hold in the context of quantum measurement under assumption of a local hidden variable model. These inequalities can be violated according to the theory of quantum mechanics and have also been violated experimentally. Bell inequalities were therefore historically used to...

The internet consists of many networks connected by the BGP protocol and can easily be manipulated by a hacker. Every day, hackers reroute internet traffic and use that to impersonate entities such as companies, devices and humans. To detect this rerouting, which is also know as a route leak, a BGP monitor can be used. A BGP monitor checks...

As buildings get taller and lighter, structural engineers are increasingly faced with the consequences of the dynamic response of high-rise buildings to wind. Damping is an important property for the dynamic response of high-rise structures, but is a combination of many mechanisms, which makes it a complex phenomenon to account for in the...

Several factors play a role in the ongoing process of the acceptance and eventual universal use of LiDAR remote sensing technology in wind site assessment. Especially turbulence parameter 푇퐼 is still giving food for thought. Three important aspects of LiDAR measured 푇퐼 that are considered key are picked out and feature in this work, which...

In temperature coefficient measurements of PV modules, a low level of agreement in results is observed between different laboratories, with deviations up to ±10% for Pmax temperature coefficients. Such deviations are considered as an uncertainty component in PV energy yield assessments, and are seen as financial risk by investors and purchasers....

Flat plate heat exchangers are widely used in industrial and domestic applications. Industrial plate type heat exchangers generally operate in the turbulent flow regime. Although, increase in flow speeds leads to higher transport of heat, it also causes a rise in the pressure loss which is undesirable. Therefore, to combat the problem of high...

The impact of the traffic measure package (TMP) configuration on performance outputs of a behavioral policy measure (BPM) is in practice predominately estimated, but not yet substantiated. This was also the case for TMPs implemented in ‘Beter Benutten Vervolg’ (BBV), which was a program that executed hundreds of policy measures to get car users...
