In future decades, coasts will be exposed to increasing risks because of climate change and sea level rise, which poses an increased threat of coastal inundation, erosion and ecosystem loss. The natural variability of coasts can make it difficult to identify these impacts. Most beaches worldwide show evidence of recent erosion. Sea level rise is...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

Wind loading is an essential aspect in the design and assessment of long-span bridges, but it is often not well-known and cannot be measured directly. Most structural health monitoring systems can easily measure structural responses at discrete locations using accelerometers. This data can be combined with reduced-order modal models in Kalman...

In 2050, it is expected that 70% of the world’s population will live in cities (Jin et al., 2014), leading to increasing congestion in and surrounding cities. This will raise new challenges, requiring more efficient and interactive cities. A novel paradigm contributing to these so-called smart cities is participatory sensing. Also known as...

Maintenance is a necessary measure to keep the asset, in this case a road network, in good condition. Spending too much on maintenance is clearly not efficient, while not spending enough may cause the condition to drop below a desired value; moreover, it will almost always cost more to correct the emerging damages afterwards. <br/>In this report...

The number of space objects has largely increased in the recent years, becoming a considerable threat to the present and future of satellite operations and human spaceflight. This introduces a need to accurately compute the risk of collision between satellites and space debris. Current methodologies are limited by the type of encounter and the...

Machine learning models are being used extensively in many high impact scenarios. Many of these models are ‘black boxes’, which are almost impossible to interpret. Successful implementations have been limited by this lack of interpretability. One approach to increasing interpretability is to use imitation learning to extract a more interpretable...

Cardiovascular diseases are a prevalent cause of death worldwide. People with physically demanding jobs tend to have poorer cardiovascular health than people with sedentary jobs. In contrast to leisure-time physical activity (PA), occupational PA (lifting, pushing, and pulling heavy loads over a long period without sufficient recovery) seems to...

Rehabilitation robotics is a rapidly growing field in the engineering industry. Due to the high repeatability of motion, high therapy costs, and lack of proper quantitative assessment of patient status and progress, rehabilitation centers could benefit from the introduction of robotics. One such device already commercially available is the...

Both model predictive control (MPC) and reinforcement learning (RL) have shown promising results in the control of traffic signals in urban traffic networks. There are, however, a few drawbacks. MPC controllers are not adaptive and therefore perform suboptimal in the presence of the uncertainties that always occur in urban traffic systems....

Coastal flooding is threatening the personal safety, property, and social development of the low-lying land around the coast worldwide. Stormsurge is one of the main sources of coastal flooding. Tide and surge models can provide timely water level forecasts for coastal management with the early warning of flooding. Although a regional model can...

Research and development of motion control in the field of autonomous driving is significantly increasing nowadays. Model predictive control (MPC) is one of the most powerful and practical tools currently available. It is important to select the parameters of the MPC, such as weights, in a way so that different control objectives can be met...

The water balance model has been an indispensable tool for quantifying water supply and demand and regulating water resources for decades. By convention, hydrologists use in-situ measurements of river discharge for model calibration. Whereas hardly is it possible for areas suffering from data storage. Researchers have been working on methods...

Precise Point Positioning (PPP) is a Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) modelling and processing method that provides single-receiver users with high positioning accuracy anywhere on the globe, without the explicit dependence on reference receivers. The realization of PPP is based on undifferenced code and phase measurements, a priori...

Large-scale cultivation of seaweed presents opportunities for multiple global challenges currently at play. Cultivated seaweed can provide a sustainable source of protein for humans and cattle without competing for land, freshwater supply or the use of fertilisers. Kelp forests are known to be a solid basis for an elaborate biome that supports...

This study deals with the modelling of the future global energy demand in<br/>the transportation sector, how and in what extend this could be limited and<br/>which low carbon fuels and technologies could contribute to the mitigation of<br/>the energy demand. In the introduction of the current report, the greenhouse<br/>effect, the global warming...

The significant growth in B2C e-commerce in the last decade increased the traffic and volume of parcels in last-mile delivery significantly. To mitigate the impact of the last-mile delivery service such as the increased traffic and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission, crowdshipping emerged as an innovation that utilise the travelling crowd as...

In the DST project, a deployable space telescope is designed for the thermal infrared spectrum. For this project, a new Systems Engineering (SE) approach was needed, since the SE was outdated and the project worked in silos. Important goals for the SE approach were that it was easy to use and minimizes the workload by automating as much as...

Around the world, child helplines through their services provide a safe and confidential space for children to be heard and empowered. The Dutch Kindertelefoon is one of such helplines providing counselling services to children via call and chat all year round. In this thesis, we explore the design of a conversational agent for training...
